Beautifully decorated guest suite in historic North End Tacoma! It is a spacious suite with parking, private entrance and room for 2 maybe 3. Within walking distance of great shopping, dining and entertainment on Proctor Street. Perfect for the business traveler.
The bedroom suite is located in the basement of our 110 year old home. It has been beautifully refinished to accommodate family and guests.

We love visiting with our guests and offering advice about places to go and things to do in the area. If you need assistance, or have a question about your space we are available at any time via phone, text or email. My husband and I both work during the week, so you probably won't run into us during the day, but we are usually around on weekends working in the yard or around the house. If you're feeling social we love playing old time music with friends, hanging out on the patio or around the fire pit.
Some Fridays of the month we host an Old Time Class/Jam from 6pm to 8:30pm. Guests are welcome!
Because the guest suite is in the basement, you will probably hear people moving around upstairs on occasion. We will do our best not to disturb you, but some noise is unavoidable.
My mother and son also live in the house, you will likely see them coming and going throughout the day.
For people over 6' tall, this apartment is located in our finished basement and the ceiling height is 6'6" and 6'1" near the duct work between the bed area and the t.v. area. The shower is a standard size but it may feel small to people over 6'.
Please be respectful of our home and keep things clean and tidy.
No shoes on the carpet.
We do have one dog and one outside cat.
Do not flush ANYTHING down the toilet except for the toilet paper we have provided.
Please dispose of food waste in the compost bin under the kitchenette dresser.
No washing dishes in the bathroom sink. Used dishes go in the bin under the kitchenette dresser. Please let me know when this bin is full and I will replace mugs, drinking glasses, bowls, plates and utensils as needed.
If you smoke please do this outside away from the house. This includes marijuana (you know, legal in Washington now).
Cars must be parked in the driveway, not on the alleyway.
Also, if you need anything, please ask. Suggestions on how to make the space better are also welcomed.
Hello! My name is Miriam and I live in Tacoma, Washington with my husband, Brent, our cats Ginny and Mouse and our dog Daisy.
