Beautiful quiet neighborhood in Puyallup with 2/3 acre back yard. Daylight basement turned into a posh modern pad with private patio, separate entrance. Comfortable queen size posturpedic bed in bedroom, full size sofa sleeper and 2 single futons for extra sleeping. Fully equipped kitchen including stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave (no dishwasher). Large backyard for playing games or just relaxing. A few steps away is a nice teak table and 4 chairs to enjoy table games or a meal. The house has a great view of the valley and to the west of Tacoma and the Olympic Mountains. We are 5 minutes from The Washington State Fairgrounds and Good Samaritan Hospital. Great accommodations if you have a short term work assignment or are transitioning to or from the area like Costco, REI or JBLM. Uber is a really popular way of getting around. We are also just a few minutes from the Sounder Train Station in Sumner or Puyallup that travels to Seattle with special runs to Mariner and Seahawk games.
I grew up in northwestern Illinois, worked in the fishing/shipping industry in Alaska and then moved to Seattle area almost 40 years ago. I owned a European style restaurant and catering company for 12 years and transitioned to mortgage and real estate business in 2000. I have always loved the hospitality industry so this BNB is a perfect fit. I am married to a realtor and we have two young adult children. I have a passion for fine food and wine and love reading and hiking.
Kim Hunter purchased this apartment in 2010
We chose this property because of the separate apartment which my mother lived in for 5 years before moving to assisted living. We love the neighborhood for its amazing views of the Puyallup/Sumner valley and across to the downtown and Port of Tacoma. Also of special interest is the large, peaceful, wooded lot and greenbelt behind us that hosts deer and the occasional coyote.
We fell in love with this property because of its peaceful nature and orientation toward the most spectacular views in the neighborhood. Sometimes when the fog is in the valley it reminds me of Shangri-La. It is a spectacular house for entertaining with many separate indoor areas, 3 decks and a patio.
We have stayed here twice now, both stays have been extremely enjoyable. Property owners are very kind, responsive and helpful. We will continue to stay here when we travel home to visit family.
Property is situated in a very nice, clean and safe neighborhood. Host family was very thoughtful and appropriately available. Unit was clean and well equipped. We had a very enjoyable stay and intend to book this property again next time we head home for a visit.
Kim's apartment is nicely decorated, furnished, and very comfortable! A great alternative to a hotel.
This apartment space really has its Zen on. Beautifully appointed and decorated, pet friendly appartment (walkout lower level) with everything we needed. Very conveniently located for easy Interstate/fairground access. The apartment is in "new" condition and could not ask for more. I know where I will be staying the next time I visit Seattle.
