Large bedroom w/ fireplace & newly renovated private bath in our historic home for your extended stay in Tacoma. Conveniently located by area hospitals, Wright Park, UPS, downtown, 6th Ave & N. Tacoma. Guests have views of the Puget Sound from the queen sized bed & access to the chefs kitchen, formal living/sitting room & dining room. Restaurants & bars w/in walking distance. Location is perfect for business travel while feeling like a luxury home. Potential for long term stays, please inquire.

The space

The room is located on the second floor of our house and offers the best views of Commencement Bay in the home. Guests will enjoy our oak hardwood flooring, brick fireplace, luxury linens and a private bathroom renovated 11/16. The private bath features a vintage claw foot soaking tub and frameless high glass custom shower. Guests have access to our chefs kitchen to make coffee or tea (provided) in the mornings. We also welcome our guests to relax in our formal living room or enjoy their meals in our formal dining room (both located on the first floor of the home).
We provide an Apple TV featuring Netflix, HBO and Showtime for your enjoyment in the living room on the first floor. If you're interested in catching a sports game on TV we suggested a quick one block walk over to Hank's for ample big screen sports viewing choices and a great beer selection. Towels are provided along with some light toiletries but we do not guarantee a selection of toiletries so please be sure to bring your own.

Guest access

Guests access the home through the main entry and may enjoy the formal living area on the 1st floor during their stay as well. Please be aware that we share our home with an Icelandic Sheepdog named Tryggur who is very friendly. We will contact you a day or two prior to your stay to coordinate access.

Interaction with guests

Schedules permitting we love to meet all of our guests. We're happy to interact with them during their stay but understand that our guests might prefer their privacy. Guests are welcome to visit with us and use the formal living room on the first floor or they can retreat to their room for more privacy. Prior to your check in we will send you a message with some details about our comings and goings during your stay.

Other things to note


We understand what it's like to travel with a pet so under certain conditions we allow our guests to bring their pups provided the following:
1) The dog is non-aggressive
2) The dog is not a pup (less than 18 months).
3) The dog is up to date on it's shots and you can provide documentation if asked.
4) Arrangements for the pet in the guests absence are agreed upon at booking.

Although we do love those little feline friends we prefer not to host them at this time. With our dogs "enthusiasm" for little kitties it would be just too disruptive to the level of peace we like to enjoy in our beautiful home. Sorry kitties, we not trying to hate on ya, it's just not a good fit.

Kristen's home was beautiful and convenient to downtown Tacoma. Check-in and checkout were a breeze with an autonomous option for both. I was a little worried about the dog, but Tryggur was well brushed and extremely friendly. Overall, I would recommend Kristen's place to others and will consider again when visiting the area.

Kristen's home is beautiful! She does an awesome job at making sure you feel welcome and at home. The home is neat and clean w very tasteful decor. Tryggur (the family dog) is pure joy and makes an exceptional ambassador of the home. We will miss our friendly welcomes from her. We hope to visit Tacoma again before our daughter completes her military obligation, Kristen's home will always be our first choice in Tacoma. Thank you Kristen for making our trip so much fun.

For my first time using airbnb, I had a wonderful experience staying at Kristen's place. Room and bathroom exceeded expectations and Kristen is such a gracious and understanding host. Kristen and the house make you feel comfortable as if staying with old friends :)

This room is in a beautiful well-maintained home that's listed on the historic register. It's well decorated and very clean. The only down side for me was the bathroom was down the hall (as advertised) and it was hot weather so the room was rather warm at night.
