If you're looking for a charming place to stay we would love to welcome you. A comfy Sterns & Foster Queen size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets. Wake up to a Keurig coffeemaker, some fresh fruit, yogurt and a little treat from our local bakery. A great way to start the day.

I am meticulous about cleaning. I want you to feel like you're the first guest to walk into the suite.

I love the North End of Tacoma, there is a real sense of community here. We live in a great neighborhood a few blocks from the University of Puget Sound and Proctor. Proctor has a wonderful farmer's market and cute shops. If you're here for business we have a UPS store and a post office in the Proctor district.

There is plenty of parking. We are close to the local bus stop that will take you downtown and to the transportation hub. The airport is only a 30 minute drive and a 45 minute to Seattle. (With light traffic)

In the summer the back yard is a nice place to escape. You are welcome to come and enjoy the patio and the view of Mt. Rainier.

Guest access

Guest have access to the patio in summer months. In the evening even on warm days it has a nice breeze and a great view of Mt. Rainier. It's a great place to have a glass of wine, read a book or magazine or play a game.

Other things to note

Cleanliness is paramount. All bedding including mattress cover and duvet are washed after each of our guests depart. All throws are washed and any throw pillows go through the dryer's sanitizer cycle. All remotes, door handles, light switches get sanitized.

I do not use any scented products to clean or wash sheets and all bedding is down and feather free.

We respect your privacy. The lock box is changed the morning the prior guest departs, so only you have the code to the suite. We only enter the suite with your permission to change linens or leave extra coffee etc.

We had such a comfortable stay in Susan's suite! It was so nice to be near UPS and all the other sites in Tacoma. But most importantly, the hospitality Susan provided may the stay incredible. The food and beverages she provided and the attention to detail were impeccable. As long is Susan's suite is available, we will never stay at another place again when we visit Seattle/Tacoma.

I would definitely recommend this place. Susan is a great host, she's very communicative and thought of all the little details. I was so comfortable and felt right at home.

We absolutely loved our stay at Susan's suite. It was beautiful, cozy, welcoming, and in a wonderful neighborhood. Susan was the most amazing host making sure we had everything we needed and adding many special touches and with many delicious goodies.. She and her husband gave us many great recommendations for places to eat and places to see.. This is the best Airbnb we have stayed at and we can't wait to stay again!!!

This was hands down our favorite and best Airbnb we've ever stayed in. Susan is an incredible host that goes above and beyond all expectations. She met us with a smile and gave us a tour. The unit was an amazing place to stay while we visited for a show at the Tacoma Dome. Can I give more than 5 stars?

By far the best airbnb I have ever been to! Susan was warm, welcoming, and even offered to give us a lift into town when we were figuring out our travel plans. From the moment you step into her place, you'll already feel right at home with soft music playing and all the tasty treats in the kitchen waiting for you (the handmade ice cream cups were fantastic!). Loved the decor, the cleanliness, and all the small details you can tell Susan had put a lot of love into her suite. Thanks so much for such a wonderful night. We will definitely be back the next time we visit Seattle/Tacoma! :)

Susan is the gold-standard of Airbnb. Her tastefully decorated, spacious apartment is filled with so many special touches: bakery items and ice cream from local specialty stores; a refrigerator stocked with fresh fruit, orange juice, and hard boiled eggs; an iPad with quick links to restaurants/things to do in Tacoma; a prepared picnic basket; bathrobes and slippers; and, sweet notes throughout the rooms. Susan was easy to communicate with, and we enjoyed visiting with her over a glass of wine on her patio. We left Tacoma feeling as if we'd had a visit with family. I only wish we'd had more time in Susan's home!

Response from Susan:
I hope your daughter goes to UPS because then maybe we could have you as our guest again:)

Susan User ProfileSusan is a superhost.

My husband and I are from Tacoma, Washington. We are bi-costal now that both of our kids are on the East Coast. Now that we are empty nesters I need to find out what I really like to do. I know we love good food and usually our vacations are about great food, friends, museums, theater and architecture. I love hosting and meeting each new guest.

In the last few years I have travelled quiet a bit and have stayed in a wide variety of hotels and airbnb's. I've taken my favorite experiences from each hotel and fellow airbnb hosts so I can bring you a great experience.
