Cute, quirky place to stay. It could use a few little touches to make it perfect but it felt clean and safe. Easy walk to 6th Ave restaurants and bars. Ladies, bring a hair dryer! Also, be careful of the wobbly chairs.
Manager response:
Hi Karen, We are happy to hear that you loved the location of this home and felt that it was clean and safe. We let local management know about the chairs and to see if they can get a hairdryer added. We look forward to hosting you again.

This place had a comfy king bed and a queen as well! We enjoyed the bath tub and I appreciated that there was coffee and tea available! The neighborhood was nice and quiet.

I liked the fact that I was big just like a 2 bedroom apartment. Bathroom was all nice but dirty. There was hair ties on the floor carpet and the toilet was dirty. In the loving area theres a little couch but the pillows had all kinds of stains on them specially the black pillows, the couch had crumbs and all kinds of other stuff on it. The bedding was super dirty and everytime we would set the thermostat as it was very cold it would turn off at night randomly even though I had it set for overnight to be on sp we spend about 3 nights in the cold and waking up constantly to turn it on. The washing machine was not working.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Blanca. We regret to hear that you were dissatisfied with your stay. We have performed a deep clean and have adjusted the thermostat settings for proper function. Please note, a washer is not listed as an amenity for this unit. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Very nice neighborhood with off street parking. Upstairs apartment worked well for a group of 30 year olds for the weekend being tourists!
Ingrid . Mar 2019
Loved this place and hosts were very helpful!
Amy . Mar 2019
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.
Rachel . Mar 2019
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.

Such a kind and helpful host, absolutely beautiful, unique, and comfortable space. Plenty of room for whatever your heart desires - super comfy memory foam beds, spacious living room/dining room/kitchen, walking distance to the Sixth Ave attractions, quiet neighborhood. Highly recommended!
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!

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!
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.
Raven . Nov 2018
Super cute! Great response time! Very clean!
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.
Sara . Nov 2018
Very cute conveniently located Airbnb! David was very helpful and quick to respond. Highly recommend!!
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.
Alicia . Oct 2018
This is a lovely space in a sweet neighborhood. The living space is quite delightful to hang out in and has a artistic, funky vibe. Surprisingly affordable! David was a fabulous communicator and check in was easy and smooth.

Kateřina . Oct 2018
Everything was perfext! House was really so nice and so clean :) we loved here ❤ thank you so much❤
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.
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!
Cory . Sep 2018
Great house, friendly neighbors
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.
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!
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.
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.
Jin . Aug 2018
This place is nice.Neat and clean.the grape and prune in the yard are a surprise.
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!
Shelby . Jul 2018
Great clean, convenient, and comfortable place to stay!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.

Phillip . Jun 2018
Top notch service, David was super responsive on all communications and the house itself was amazing!
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!
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!
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!!!
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.
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!
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!
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
