Exactly what we needed

  • 4 of 5

Love the fact that it accommodated all of us with enough bathrooms and that we had great next door neighbor everything we needed for our stay only one problem homeless people waking up and down the sidewalk could not stand out front without them stoping to ask for a cigarette or spare change. All two thumbs up.

We had an awesome time

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my trip to Tacoma for my son's wedding. There was plenty of room in this 9 bedroom home to accommodate all of the guest. We were looking for something that offered privacy but also allowed for us to be in the same place. There was plenty of seating that allowed for us to spend time together just talking and catching up with each other.

We experienced a problem with connecting to the wi-fi on our first night of the stay. I contacted Mike the following day and he was able to provide a remedy for the situation.

Mike was very nice and made himself available if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking to accommodate a large group.

Stayed for only one night so didn't get to do too much but have to say Mike was amazingly available with an issue we had.

House is huge and very nice.Fun to be able to fit all 8 of us gals with a room left over!!

Thx Mike

Very spacious and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Mike is a great host and quickly responded to my questions.

Great location with superb view of Mt Rainier. Lots to do in the nearby area. Easy walking distance to Pacific Avenue and museums. Easily accommodated our group of 19 over Christmas. Plenty of chairs and places to gather. 9 bedrooms gave everyone a private place to retreat to and sleep. Third floor offered more space for air mattresses if needed. House temperature very comfortable and plenty of hot water.

Kitchen well equipped with dishes and utensils. Would stay there again.

Nice house and pictures does not do justice!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family went to Tacoma for a wedding in downtown Tacoma. The location of the house was great for everyone. My husband is from the Seattle/Tacoma area and when I gave him the address, he was skeptical of the area!!!! The area is NOT what he remembered. It was quiet and peaceful neighborhood. If we have another family event in Tacoma, we will definitely rent again. Thank you....

PS: it would have been even better if there was baby things in a big house that size!!! That was the only thing we were missing from home. We have a 3 month old!!!! The other kids enjoyed playing all the board games throughout the house though ;)

Nice kitchen, small bedrooms

  • 3 of 5

The main floor kitchen and living space is really nice. All the bedrooms are small. No real master. All beds are uncomfortable. Ended up getting a hotel because I couldn't sleep on a cement bed another night. Bathrooms are very nice. Pretty shady parking in an ally in the back. We parked on the street instead.

Owner's Response: Hello Stephanie, I'm sorry the bedroom sizes and beds didn't fit your standards. The home has 9 bedrooms and besides the 2 twin sized bedrooms, which are naturally smaller, the rooms are perfectly normal size for a 3800sqft home in the Seattle/Tacoma area. Also I'm not sure what your definition of a master bedroom is but there is a larger king size bedroom that is about 400sqft and plenty of room to stretch. As far as the beds go, some of the rooms have very expensive mattresses in them so I find it very hard to believe that you couldn't manage to get comfortable on any of the beds. Some are firm and some are soft and some people like to have different mattresses to chose from. Some prefer firm some prefer soft. I can't imagine all mattresses felt like concrete especially since I have personally slept on over half of them with no issues. This isn't a Ritz Carlton, but it is a lovely, personally owned home that I offer that meets or exceeds the standards of most people's homes, hence "HomeAway". It was very disheartening to receive your review, especially since you never reached out to me personally about your bad experience. I take much pride in this home and I am always looking to help my guests have the very best experience they can. Also the parking in the back is in an alley. Tacoma is a urban city center and this home is located in a dense downtown area. If that concerned you in any way, then I am sorry. The home is very safe and we have never had any problems with previous guests.
