Very nice neighborhood with off street parking. Upstairs apartment worked well for a group of 30 year olds for the weekend being tourists!

The apartment was the perfect fit for my parents, husband, teenage son and myself. We loved the proximity to the restaurants on Sixth Street and the UPS campus. Check-in was easy, the apartment clean and comfortable and we will definitely try and stay again.

The place is in a great neighborhood, super close to a lot of great restaurants, and also easy to get to from I-5. The space is as described. The beds were comfy, and the information provided made check in and departure easy. It was a great place to come home to.

Greg . Feb 2019
David's house was very clean and has a charming interior that is nicely decorated. It is an older home that is well maintained and has a lot of charm. We would defiantly stay there again and we have no problem recommending it. The neighbourhood is also very nice and has a lot of places to eat near by and is in a good central location.
Jennifer . Jan 2019

Alesya . Dec 2018
We had a nice stay, easy parking and lots of walkable restaurants, Safeway was a 3-4 minute drive east so it was very convenient. It is a cute house in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen was better outfitted than most AirBnBs. Thank you David!
Raven . Nov 2018
Super cute! Great response time! Very clean!
Linda . Nov 2018
Comfortable large space in great location
Matthew . Nov 2018
This quaint homestay is located within walking distance to 6th Avenue where plenty of food and fun can be found. David’s place was exactly what we needed and hoped for; located on a quiet little corner, we could live there forever! The space is cozy and comfortable, with tons of personality and charm. If you’re looking for a little corner in Tacoma of quiet, peaceful bliss that still has quick and easy access to dining, coffee, bars, and grocery? You’ve found it.
Maile . Nov 2018
Beautiful home and perfect for our needs. It's nestled in a quiet neighborhood, yet convenient access to major roads. Clean, comfortable and charming. The next time I visit Tacoma I will definitely want to stay here.
Nancy . Nov 2018
David was amazing with getting back to me in a timely manner with any questions I had. The home is located in a quaint and quiet neighborhood and is blocks away from 6th Street which has a great coffee shop and restaurants. Check in was a breeze and there is ample parking for two cars. We enjoyed our stay in this cute craftsman home.
Ki . Nov 2018
Had a great stay in Tacoma and really enjoyed the neighborhood! David was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. The kitchen was stocked with odds and ends which was really helpful and great. Thanks so much.

Instructions were very clear and specific, cozy place and great location! Definitely recommend!
Julie . Nov 2018
Wonderful stay. Great bed. Nice decorating. Close to great restaurant options.
Urooj . Nov 2018
We stayed in David and Leah's place during the holiday season, and it was a treat! The home is very quiet and great for someone looking to do a writing retreat. We were impressed with Dave's communication -- he got back to us quickly. For example, we asked David about a television, and he went out the next day and purchased one! We also had some snags getting here -- but David was on call and responsive! We would stay in his place again!
Sara . Nov 2018
Very cute conveniently located Airbnb! David was very helpful and quick to respond. Highly recommend!!

Samuel . Oct 2018
The house was just as advertised, it was very cozy and accommodating.
Lucas . Oct 2018
Definitely a great place to stay while you’re in Tacoma. Easy access to everywhere you want to go. Very nice linen in the beds and all of the beds are very comfortable. Plenty of parking and space for the three of us.
Lawrence . Oct 2018
This was an excellent choice and deserves a 5 star rating. David is an excellent host. He is available anytime you need him, but allows you your space and peace. The house is warm and inviting and has everything you need in the kitchen as well as laundry, and all other amenities.
Kateřina . Oct 2018

Joel . Oct 2018
Lovely home. Great location. We were very comfortable!
Meagan . Sep 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at David’s place. The beds were heavenly and the rooms were large. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes - would have liked some bigger mugs for coffee though! Lots of parking and a nice area - quiet at night. Highly recommend.
Antje . Sep 2018
This Airbnb is nicely decorated and very spacious. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials which is always a plus when you travel. We enjoyed our stay.
Janet . Sep 2018
You can expect a quiet sleep. The house is old, as indicated in the website, but it is clean. It is well-stocked with whatever you might need. The stairs are not formidable. We are seniors and did not find them to be a problem.
Daisy . Sep 2018
Great little space for my family of 6. My daughter had forgotten some items at the house when we checked out and David STILL went above and beyond to get them returned back to us. This was days after we checked out. The price was amazing and the beds were EXTREMELY comfortable! Thank you David!
Robert . Sep 2018
David's home is spacious, clean and comfortable. It is a joy to wake up in the main bedroom and look out to the tree lined street. The hot water in the shower is great and the kitchen is well equipped with ample room to sit. There is quietness and privacy. The house offers all necessary amenities including parking and the location is sweet.
Jill . Sep 2018
This is a beautiful home built in the early 1900s. If you are looking for sleek and modern, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a place with original hardwoods, built in shelves and charm then you've hit the jackpot. It is comfortably furnished with double beds, soft linens and duvet covers to keep you cozy. The kitchen is stocked and I didn't need to purchase any of the basic items that I needed for cooking. Hosts stocked the bathroom with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste and soft towels. The neighborhood is quiet and an easy drive to I-5 and a short walk to restaurants. I had several interactions with the host and responses were always friendly and prompt. Five stars across the board!
Susan . Sep 2018
A friend and I stayed at David's for 4 nights. His flat is in a sweet neighborhood of older refurbished homes. Great neighborhood to walk and restaurants nearby. Blackbeard coffee on 6th Ave is excellent. They roast on site. The beds and pillows are incredibly comfortable. I want that mattress! The kitchen has all the basics and we cooked our meals there. I do a lot of airbnb-ing and hosts are typically prompt in responding. David was the most responsive host I've had. He also was very sweet about checking in periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. And the price was quite reasonable.
Kristine . Sep 2018
Very clean. Super comfortable beds. Flowers on the table were thoughtful. Great communication from host.
Pasquale . Sep 2018
Loved the homey, comfy, and charming home you created. The bed was super comfortable and warm. I also loved how full bottles of toiletries were available for us.
Cory . Sep 2018
Great house, friendly neighbors
Connie . Aug 2018
Great house; close to UPS! The art and decor was funky and fun. We didn't cook, but the kitchen had everything one might need. Would stay again when visiting the area!
Christie . Aug 2018
Absolutely charming place to stay. Everything we needed, including pantry items. Beds were wonderful; artwork and furnishings lovely; extra towels and sheets easy to find. Very easy check-in! Felt completely safe and comfortable at all times. Close to downtown Tacoma; easy drives to Gig Harbor and Seattle. So thankful for such thoughtful hosts. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
Alan . Aug 2018
David's place is a great place to stay. It's a decent size with two bedroom and one full bath. Easy access to downtown Tacoma, and not a far drive from Seattle. And it is also much cheaper than staying in Seattle. David's place is in a nice quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again next time.
Jane . Aug 2018
Davids home was in a nice quiet location and close to stores that you might need to go to for groceries since you do have a kitchen to make meals. The 2 bedrooms have comfy beds with ceiling fans and portable air conditioning units but during our stay we didn't have to use them much because the weather was nice and cool but when the days were warmer they sure cooled the room down quickly. The kitchen has coffee and many types of tea choices. The home itself is very charming inside with beautiful artwork. It has a nice area in the kitchen with a table so you can play games or talk to eachother while preparing meals. Overall a great stay. David was quick to reply to any questions I had and check in was easy. If we come back over to Tacoma we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Cathy . Aug 2018
Our family had a wedding in the area and we were able to use both apartments in the home with a few days overlapping. The upstairs apartment is very nice. The beds are very comfortable. The place is clean and has many things you would need to cook and several toiletries. The host David is very responsive and attentive and was a pleasure to work with. We enjoyed our time in Tacoma.
Kathy . Aug 2018
This apartment is really cool with awesome artwork. The beds are also really comfortable. It was a great place that allowed us easy access both by car and transit to do all the things we wanted to do in Washington. David is a very responsive and gracious host. I highly recommend this place.
Brendan . Aug 2018
David's place was great, and he responded immediately every time. We had to cancel a Airbnb at 9PM and David was able to accept and have his place ready to go by 10PM the same night for us. He really helped us, Thanks again!
Jin . Aug 2018
This place is nice.Neat and clean.the grape and prune in the yard are a surprise.
Dan . Aug 2018
Clean and roomy with a good price and location. would stay there again.
April . Jul 2018
Lots of space, a sweet yard, plenty of fluffy towels, and air-conditioned bedrooms made our visit great. We appreciated the pantry stock (spices, etc.) and toiletries so we didn’t have to run out for anything. FYI, there’s no television, but WiFi is speedy enough that streaming Netflix was a breeze. The best feature is the keyless entry, so we didn’t have to worry about keeping track of a key while out and about. Thanks for another great stay... will see you again soon.
Dena . Jul 2018
We had a great time staying here! It was great to relax, get necessities nearby, and had easy access to public transportation that quickly brought us downtown Tacoma to all the museums and great things to explore. David was great in helping us explore public transportation options as well as restaurant options as my husband has a handful of food sensitivities that can make that challenging. It was great to have David’s ideas as a springboard! David was a great host and quickly responded whenever we reached out. We would for sure consider coming back if we are ever in the area. We think others will enjoy it as much as we did!
Shelby . Jul 2018
Great clean, convenient, and comfortable place to stay!
Chela . Jul 2018
The neighborhood is QUIET -- which is a big plus when traveling in and around the Seattle-Tacoma area. Parking is ample, and there is a nice outside area when weather permits. We found a delightful cafe not far from the house (Old Milwaukee Cafe) which was just the right touch of casual for our group.
Kirk . Jul 2018
This place was awesome very close by everything I would stay here again :-)
Charlotte . Jul 2018
Great value and super convenient.
Hannah . Jul 2018
David's place is excellent. The decor is adorable, and we had everything we needed for a fantastic stay. I definitely recommend staying here!
Xóchitl . Jul 2018
Easily one of our favorites! David, was quick to reply and worked with my family and I to provide a great experience. As soon as we walked in the house, it felt homey and warm. I loved the artistic flair, space, and how comfortable it was(: . Thank you again, David, for hosting us. We look forward to coming back!
Michael . Jul 2018
Nice, bright, clean place to stay. I think the bed was the most comfortable one I've ever slept in!
Charissa . Jul 2018
David’s home was a DREAM! So cute! Perfect neighborhood, close to everything & still no traffic! The beds were like sleeping on a CLOUD! We LOVED them!!! Check in was EASY, David was very informative. We will definitely stay here again next time we come to Washington!
Jefferey . Jul 2018
Amazing location, very clean, nice touches of amenities (snacks and such) and fully equipped kitchen. About 5-6 blocks from plenty of bars and shops on 6th ave, which definitely has the feel of an up and coming neighborhood. We had fancy coffee at Bluebeard, drinks at the pinball bar, delicious ice cream, breakfast at Shakabrah’s and killed some time in the impressive record store. Our only problems were that there was not enough toilet paper (seems to be a common thing at air bnbs - 1 and 1/2 rolls for 4 people over two days..) and there was an art event in the basement of the house on the Saturday we were there (from 12-5). Art event wouldn’t have been an issue except people kept knocking on the front door looking for the entrance. Also, as others have stated, there is no tv. Not a problem for us though since we spent most of our evenings out of the bnb.
Kristin . Jul 2018
This house is adorable. The amenities are great and the artwork is lovely. The house is in a central location close to everything. The house is adorable, plenty of space. Love enjoying the front porch in the evenings during the summer.
Hui . Jul 2018
David's house is the best house we've ever lived in. elegant environment, convenient transportation, house is quiet and tidy, the owner David is warm and thoughtful, it is the ideal rental house to travel.
Heather . Jul 2018
Good value and location! David is also very quick to respond which is helpful!
Phillip . Jun 2018
Top notch service, David was super responsive on all communications and the house itself was amazing!
Kym . Jun 2018
This house is SO attractive, pulling up to it after dusk, with lots of plants and a lovely yard, following a little pathway around the side and the twinkle of string lights to guide you up the steps... magical. The beds had nice memory foam topped mattresses, even the trundle daybed where my son slept was quite comfy. Fully equipped kitchen and bath, very quiet neighborhood. It was lovely to look out over the rooftops in the early morning. Very complete instructions to check in, super easy. thanks very much!
Mary . Jun 2018
My boyfriend and I stayed at David & Leah's place for the weekend while we were in town for a show at the convention center. The location is hard to beat - super close to 6th Ave in Tacoma - which offers lots of delicious food and entertainment, and super easy access to the freeways. The place had ALL the charm of an old craftsman home - not only was the inside beautiful, but all the landscaping outside was wonderful as well. We loved the fact that there was no TV, comfortable beds, adorable furniture, and the kitchen was a joy to cook in. David was beyond accommodating and quick to answer any and all questions we had! We can't wait to stay here again!!!
Philip . Jun 2018
Top notch service, David was super responsive on all communications and the house itself was amazing!
Jerred . Jun 2018
David's home is well-appointed, comfortable, and has a great location - all for a fantastic price! The entire home is decorated in beautiful art. Beds are extremely comfortable and neighborhood is very quiet and friendly. Location could not be better, with nearby 6th Ave dining and quick access to the freeway.
Marcio . Jun 2018
The owner is very proactive.
Jerred . Jun 2018
David’s home is perfect - whether you’re in town for an extended stay, or just overnight to explore Tacoma. Highly recommend!
Rajat . Jun 2018
Great service!
Jerred . Jun 2018
This was my first-ever stay in an AirBNB and David was a fantastic host! His home in Central Tacoma has a great, easily accessible location and very close to all the great locations on 6th Ave! We enjoyed wonderful walks in the beautiful neighborhood each evening, and relaxing sits on the front porch. I will be staying with David again in the near future!
Bridget . Jun 2018
I really enjoyed my stay here! The house was really cute and very clean and comfortable! The off street parking was really nice and super convenient to have! David was a great host and was very helpful and quick to respond to messages. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to be in the city but enjoys more of a quiet and private place to stay!
Gina . Jun 2018
This was our first experience using Airbnb and it was great! David was a great host. He responded very quickly every time and offered ideas for touring the area. The house was just as posted, with that artsy, old house charm! We loved the breakfast booth in the kitchen! Everything was very clean and fully stocked. There was even a basket of snacks in the kitchen for us. Nice touch! And the location was good and easy to find. We would definitely recommend this place if you are visiting the Tacoma area!
Rylie . Jun 2018
David was a kind host, with quick responses, even in the middle of the night! Great little place to stay in central Tacoma
Evan . Jun 2018
This is a beautiful home with a comforting vibe. It is a great location for central Tacoma as the house is in the middle of everything, while also being hidden enough for some peace and privacy. The house is very clean and well decorated. David is an understanding and communicative host that provides a lot of freedom in order to ensure that his guests truly enjoy their stay. Overall, the house is an 11 out of 10.
Tamara . Jun 2018
This is a surprisingly very roomy, comfortable quaint place to hang out! Owners were very responsive! The neighborhood is quiet but super close to freeways and a little restaurants, also a target and Walmart a few blocks away!
Gary & Joy . May 2018
A great place if four or more of you are traveling and want a common space. Very attentive owners who I’m sure will keep adding value to their property.
Victoria . May 2018
David’s place was absolutely perfect, cozy and spacious, beautiful artwork throughout the home. Located in a Safe and quiet neighborhood. Close to downtown Tacoma and a short drive to Seattle and surrounding cities. David also checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. Very pleasant overall experience, would definitely stay there again next time I’m in Washington
Stacy . May 2018
David is a outstanding host, and the place is clean and well kept. I recommend this place for Tacoma visitors. Great place!
