Spend a little vacation on the mainland, pretending that you're on an da' beach of Hawaii. No worries, no stress because that's left at the office and at your own home. Your room is nestled above our carport, away from the rest of the house.

Le logement

Come in. Welcome. Aloha. Please remove your shoes at the door and slide them under the shoe bench. There are new house slippers for you in the basket for you to use and keep. Mahalo. Would you like some homemade, fresh baked cookies while you are settling in? A soy latte?

My guests often don't want to leave as soon as they come over since its secluded with just a few windows in the front of the home. Its like being on vacation, in Hawaii. And what better person to host an AirB&B: a local islander, myself. Nope, I won't do the hula for you, even if I danced for years growing up on Oahu'. Haha!

Your guest room is located on the opposite side of the house, a bit far from the master bedroom & office; if anything, I can't hear a thing from your room to my room. So you will have lots of privacy in your space. The guest room has two brand new Ikea bed frames, comforters, sheets and pillows. You also have a key to lock your guest room door if you wish. There are brand new, plush hand, face, and body towels for you as well. As you can tell, my house is decorated mostly with Ikea furnishing -- its cheap, modern, comfortable and kid friendly, as how I enjoy living. I want my guests to feel welcome and not in a museum, not thinking they will break everything.

Accès des voyageurs

You may access the kitchen to prepare quick, simple meals as well as store your foods in my refrigerator. I believe I'm a great cook and can conjure up something to your taste if you wish. I have a full breakfast menu I can whip up as well, all homemade from scratch, mostly organic ingredients: blueberry pancakes, waffles, berry granola, veggie frittata, buttermilk biscuits, fruit/veggie smoothies, fancy coffees, and the list goes on. Hawaiian style: we accept gratuities for our cooked meals -- "no preh-shah" (pressure) as we say in slang; only if you feel like I did an amazing job. :)

Except for the master bedroom and office, you are welcome to roam and tour around the house. I have lots of board games in the toy room that you can play in the sunroom, lounge in the sunroom, get on the cycle or treadmill (or use my weights and yoga mat -- I can be a great exercise video partner if you wish to have company); you may also snoop into my yarn basket, seek your curiosity and knit as well (I'd be happy to teach you if you have the patience). I do have a TV screen and Comcast Cable w/HBO network (you can stream it on your computer); however, I still have yet to set up the cable on my tv. We do not watch tv but videos on occasion, which you are welcome to watch (we are avid outdoorsy people). Upon your request I can set it up the cable tv for you; just let me know. There are two full bathrooms that you may access, but be forwarned that one is decorated as a kid's bathroom if you don't mind . Just let me know what you need and I will provide you with my house warming services as much as I can.

Do also let me know in advance what foods you are allergic to and not care for.

There are a lot of space for parking as well.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I am a full-time student "again" (I'm in the medical field) and will be in and out of my home; for your privacy, my family will be scarce when you are our guests, as it will just be myself hosting. I will respect your privacy.

Autres remarques

If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. I can print out maps and inform you of the city.

I just purchased a brand new single-size futon bed that I am in the process of redecorating the toddler&kid playroom/study room. This room would be pefect for those that have kids -- I have lots of toys for boys and girls! (picture soon to come). An extra inflatable bed and the two couches are also available to sleep on. The two couches may not be fold-out beds, but are free to use to sleep on (the curdoroy couch is so comfy, I kid you not!)

In addition, please be aware that I may have another guest next to your room (with their closed door of course). I try not to double-book but be aware of their noise as well. I will inform you before hand during your inquiry of the other party that will also be in the house as to make sure you feel comfortable with the other persons. If not, please let me know and I can try to accomodate.

Règlement intérieur

My home is quite peaceful as my neighbors are mostly retired and love that they don't hear much, if anything at all. The house is sort of secluded so you can mostly just hear birds outside chirping. Please be conscious of the noise -- aka, no pounding music blasting from my speakers. Turn it up as loud as you want, as long you stand outside you can't hear the "boom-boom" shaking. Haha.

My home is a smoke and pet free home. Oh, and island style: "please remove your shoes when entering my home…but no leave with the bettah kine!"

Laundry: Due to past guests asking to use my washer/dryer in access for just one night stay, I ask that the washer/dryer be only used for those staying more than one night. Its just cost effective for me as I am also using my washer/dryer for the linens to be used by you as well as the laundry that you need to wash for yourselves. Upon the second night of staying, the first load of laundry is free, again due to my low cost in base rate, I ask to charge $5 for additional per load of laundry. I am a conservative energy girl, paying for my further education through airbnb funds as well.

Please, NO smoking in my home; I am allergic to smoke. Mahalo.

Important note to state is that if I feel uncomfortable or feel you have stepped out of boundaries, making myself feel unsafe in my own home, I do have the right to say, "Sorry, you gotta go! Auntie doesn't like your style or I gonna tell da' neighbors to boot you out.."

Auntie is the sweetest and so welcoming. We loved the homemade breakfast and lattes :)

Had a wonderful stay with Auntie. She was super friendly and easy to talk with. Provided us with cookies upon our arrival and home cooked breakfast in the morning. The candies in our room were also a nice treat. The screened in porch was a particularly relaxing place for drinks and breakfast. She offered to Uber us for our concert at the dome and in the morning. The accommodations and atmosphere were exactly as described in the synopsis. And, she was very responsive in communication. If we're ever in the Tacoma area again would definitely stay with Auntie again.

Auntie has a gift for hospitality and made us feel very welcome with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and a bottle of wine set out for our arrival. She also picked up fresh breakfast treats each day. For visitors new to the area, she provides a wealth of information (magazines and brochures) on things to see and do. We appreciated a quiet neighborhood setting to return to each night after full and busy days. We enjoyed our stay here, and even added an extra day!

Auntie is a fantastic host with an outstanding residence. As I guest, I felt more that I was at a 5-star hotel with a laundry list of amenities. She cooked breakfast, provided warm cookies at check-in, surprised with chocolates, provided a relaxing morning in her sun room, made coffee with her espresso machine, and more with access to most of her residence. Auntie is a great host to chat with and a true ambassador of the Airbnb culture. Accommodations were clean and as advertised. University Place is a great place to stay with many close attractions (Tacoma, Tacoma Narrows, Chambers Bay). Auntie has a great working knowledge of things to do in the greater Tacoma area.

Michelle is literally the best host ever. We've been at (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s and AirbnBs for years and she is the sweetest, kindest, most accommodating host. She made Martha Stewart waffles, phenomenal chocolate chip cookies, and a breakfast for the ages (biscuits and eggs and POG juice (Hawaiian juice wins over everything). She made our room cool and comfortable with water and glasses, treats (who ever thought you would need almond roca after a night of drinking), and tons of tourist pamphlets. Additionally, she was so kind. She drove us to chambers bay for a wedding after we said it was absolutely unnecessary for her to do so. I can't say enough good things about our experience. Everything was perfect and I would recommend her any day. She also is amazingly clean, and her floors were impeccably spotless. Lattes for life.

Réponse de Auntie :
OMGoodness! I laughed outloud with the first sentence and all smiles throughout this review. Thank you! Its so much fun hosting guests that appreciate you (and your floors. Haha!). I was just so happy to have helped two nice guests, especially since you booked with me far in advance. It is those that appreciate your service that you just want to keep giving (I also try to volunteer whenever I can, so smiles are addicting!). And really, its about me…it makes ME feel oh soooo good to see people in my home with all smiles. Life is just too short to not share; so much hate and war in this world, we all need to be kind to one another, even to strangers. As I said, "What good is money and the stuff you own if you can't share it with others, and see them equally smile?". I try to treat my guests as if they were family…and that means, if you like a talkative Auntie you like visiting, that's me. Haha…its hard for this girl to be quiet, yikes! Islander-Filipinos…we love to eat, eat, eat, and share our food talking and getting to know one another…its our culture to show "LOVE AND ALOHA" with food! Believe me, my Aunties keep talking (we all have diarrhea of the mouth. Haha) and are always feeding me when I come to visit Hawaii. Its like okay, stop, Auntie, I'm full! Haha. So its natural in my home to be the same. Joey and Mike, come visit any time! p.s. Next time more POG Hawaiian juice for you too, Joey!

Michelle was such a gracious host! She goes out of her way to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. She really has the right idea of what AirBnB should be, and we had a great evening at her house! And she makes a great cup of coffee. :)

Everything about our stay in the "Secluded Island" was great! Michelle went above and beyond as a host and made my brother and I all sorts of delicious treats, including a latte in the morning. The neighborhood felt safe and the drive to the house was lovely. I would recommend this listing without any hesitation.

I'm the youngest child of two older brothers, raised by my brothers and father. Should that sum me up? The dare-devil, adventure-seeking, tomboy (however, my daughters have tapped into my girly-girl side), born and raised in Hawaii. Lived here in Washington for many years. Att…
