Vacation Rentals

Updated on Aug 16, 2019

Close to Business and Pleasure-Green Room

Located in: Tacoma
Centrally located craftsman home minutes from all the fun and business in Tacoma. Tacoma Dome, Convention Center, waterfront, 6th Ave business district, all major hospitals are within 2 miles! Fun, vibrantly decorated and well-stocked rooms (we thought of almost everything!). Easy access to/from all freeways, FREE street parking readily available in front, keypad entry to home, room located up stairs. Very clean, allergy and food sensitive household.

"Magical, " "Charming," "Cozy" and "Above Expectations" are just a few of the words previous guests have used to describe this space.

All the fun of a boutique hotel, without the prices (or parking problems)! Fun colors abound in this living space! Enjoy the peacefulness of this loving home while you rest your paws and heads-we've thought of everything to ensure that your stay with us is comfortable.

There are TWO listings at this property: Green Room and Blue Room, please give them both a view.

Quiet and clean; this room features a queen size bed, twin bed in Hobbit-like room (a.k.a closet) and sofa bed. Linens supplied (hand dyed bamboo sheets washed in homemade detergent), supplemental heat, food nook with toaster, coffee maker and more. A small fridge is located in the stairwell for any cold items you wish to store during your visit.

Kitchen and laundry are not shared with guests. Laundry Service (wash, dry and fold) is available by request during your stay for $7/load. Meal Service is also available, by request, $10/meal or $25/day.

All you need while you're away to feel at home is available at your fingertips: Towels, washcloths, lotion, and first aid items to name a few of the "thoughtful touches." Power strips are placed next to the bed, and a fan is in each room, for those who enjoy a breeze or sleep lightly. If you want to kill some non digital time, there are books, puzzles, and playing cards too.

Shares full spa-like bath, featuring a bidet seat, with Host and Green Room guests. Shampoo and toothpaste is available for guests as well.

For those visiting out of town: be advised that Washington has legalized the use of mmj for both medicinal and recreational use. While no tobacco is permitted indoors here, mmj use (with mindfulness towards other guests-open window, use fan, etc.) is permitted. MMJ Use may be restricted to outside to respect other guests during your visit.

No tobacco use while in house-however, tobacco use may be permitted on property near front gate, on far side of yard or near alley (away from doors and windows to respect other guests and Host).

GUEST ACCESS TO HOUSE
While visiting, guests have access to the yard, Blue Room, fridge in stairwell and shared bathroom. House access is by keypad (code will be provided and changed upon check-in/out). Private room has keyed door.

Shares full spa-like bath with Host and Green Room guests (if any).

KITCHEN and LAUNDRY are not shared with guests.

I'm available with a flexible home/Tacoma based day. This is a small business that I run out of my own home to make ends meet while finishing my recovery from a traumatic bicycle v. car collision that left me severely injured. This means I am often home, resting or taking care guests and the home; however, please respect that you're a guest renting a room in my home. I'll let you be and do your own thing (after greeting you at some point, of course!)

There are two other people that share this super large house with me and you may meet them during your visit; my friend, Jazz and my aunt, Cheri. Cheri does most of the shuttle driving and laundry, while Jazz helps with garden work and house projects.

Additional Offerings:
-Airport shuttle service- $70/round trip or $40/one-way.
Save time, effort and moola with this shuttle!
Please request dates/times and include the number of passengers at time of room reservation in order to assure our availability.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
Freeway construction in Tacoma has been generally horrible for the past few years-however, this house is located just off SR-16 (the tricky part is getting to the highway from I-5 during the day). I'd suggest later check-in's, if possible, to minimize traffic.

If you drive, there is ample FREE street parking in FRONT of the house and on adjacent streets, if need be. Please obey traffic laws and park faced in the proper direction, on the proper side of the road and parallel to traffic.

Please respect Host and other guests by observing quiet hours from 11pm to 7am. This includes refraining from use of loud small appliances, such as the hair dryer.

For those visiting out of town: be advised that Washington has legalized the use of mmj for both medicinal and recreational use. While no tobacco is permitted indoors here, mmj use (with mindfulness towards other guests-open window, use fan, etc.) is permitted. MMJ Use may be restricted to outside to respect other guests during your visit.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Central Urban Location within 2 miles of popular spots such as:
Convention Center
Tacoma Dome (Transit Station and Train Station)
Downtown
Glass, Art and Washington State History Museum
Neighborhood Business Districts-Hilltop, 6th Ave, Stadium, and Brewery District
University of Washington (UWT) and University of Puget Sound (UPS)
All major hospitals-Tacoma General, St. Joe's, Allenmore and Children's

We're also less than 10 miles from JBLM (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) and in the opposite direction, Point Defiance Park.

FYI-Central Tacoma, particularly the Hilltop neighborhood is one of Tacoma's oldest, so it isn't the best in terms of night street lighting or smooth roads or street I've lived here as a single woman for a decade and continue to love the neighborhood. I'm not planning to leave anytime soon either. ;)

It's quirky--filled with history, diversity, artists, beautiful old houses-some needing work and some not, restaurants, parks (Tacoma's oldest park is a 5 minute walk from the house, or less!!!) and bars. The neighbors don't seem to follow an rhyme or reason to their because it's an URBAN setting this means there is often traffic to get to/from here, sirens (close enough to hospitals and nearby police station), and other assorted noises. We fight this urban fatigue with a large garden, fans to drown out the noise, music, soft pillows, blankets and vibrant colors to soothe and stimulate!! The thick old walls of this house help too. I'm proud to share what Tacoma, and specifically my neighborhood, has to offer.

Some of our favorite eateries around here include: Le-Le's (Vietnamese), 1111 (sandwiches, bar), The Red Hot (hotdogs, lots of beer), Ice Cream Social (next door to Red Hot local made ice cream-amazing!), Asado (Argentinean/American food), The Table (chic American), The Parkway (beverages-large beer and cider tap collection, Stadium Thriftway (local grocery store), Tacoma Boys (Specialty local grocery store with large beer, wine, cheese and gluten free selection), Matador (Mexican American), Indochine (Thai) and too many breweries to list! Shakabrah, Hotel Murano's Bite Restaurant (best one) or Hob Nob for weekday breakfasts.

GETTING AROUND
-Airport shuttle service- $70/round trip or $40/one-way.
Save time, effort and moola with this shuttle!
Please request dates/times and include the number of passengers at time of room reservation.

-Downtown Shuttle- to the Greater Tacoma Convention Center, Hotel Murano, Tacoma Dome, Amtrak and Tacoma Dome Transit (sounder or buses), or the Museums- $10/round trip per single destination

Reduce the stress of finding parking, paying for parking, loading/unloading your stuff and book this shuttle!

Payment accepted via cash (at time of service), the app Cash or Pay pal, in advance or via the driving service U ber (my aunt is a driver and available in-house!).

If you drive, there is ample FREE street parking in FRONT of the house and on adjacent streets, if need be. Please obey traffic laws and park faced in the proper direction, on the proper side of the road and parallel to traffic (despite what my neighbors do). There is plenty of additional parking, including for large trucks/trailers, on adjacent streets, if need be.

Public bus is a few minute walk from the house-from there a few transfers to the main stations in downtown will get you anywhere from Seattle to Olympia.

The House is located at the top of the hill, so getting around via foot or bicycle to downtown is for the braver souls (uphill coming back). 236 feet of elevation difference in 1.5 miles, from Port to Hilltop-most folks walk their bikes when going uphill.

Freeway construction in Tacoma has been generally horrible for the past few years-however, this house is located just off SR-16 (the tricky part is getting to the highway from I-5 during the day). I'd suggest later check-in's, if possible, to minimize traffic.

Lastly, this listing/home is not appropriate for children.
