The Aphrodite Apartment is unique because it is in the heart of 6th Avenue in Tacoma. You are steps away from the best shopping, restaurants and nightlife in Tacoma.

The goddess was originally built in 1920. It has been completely renovated top to bottom. This goddess of love is gorgeous on the inside too. She has original dental and flower molding from 1920 as well as original oak and fir floors. This house has been completely remodeled for exclusive use as an airbnb. We love the original woodwork and windows and hardware have been restored. We have completely renovated the kitchen and bath with custom cabinets and beautiful tile.

We have everything you need for cooking and relaxing including pots, pans, spices, glasses, and china for entertaining. We have games to play and interesting books to read. Yes we have internet. The apartment comes with antenna t.v. including netflix and hulu as well as wireless internet. We fenced and put a gate in the front yard during the remodel for added privacy.

About Angela Sienda

Hello my name is Angela. I am a native on the northwest. When I moved to Tacoma 20 years ago, I fell in love with the architecture, the waterfront and the history of this amazing city. Welcome to the 6th Avenue Goddess. We love spending time here and even though it is only 5 minutes from our house it feels like a world away. We have outfitted this house to be a comfortable respite while you are away from home. We hope you like the way we have furnished the 6th Avenue Goddess Aphrodite Apartment.

Angela Sienda purchased this House in 2016

What makes this House unique

                        Sheri K.

                        Our visit in the Aphrodite apartment was great. It was beautifully appointed, very clean and offered many amenities to make our stay feel like a home away from home. Sitting on the big front porch was a lovely addition to the homey feeling. And bonus... the bed was incredibly comfortable! Angela was easy to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this VRBO & hope to have the opportunity of staying there again.

                        Uniquely cosy

                        Gilbert B.

                        Loved our 6 night stay at the Aphrodite apartment! Had everything we needed from a well stocked kitchen to a relaxing front porch. Close to great restaurants (walking distance) and just a short drive to the Puget Sound. Enjoyed the retro decor - just like grandma's house! Highly recommend!

                        Wonderful Place!

                        Michelle W.Iowa

                        We stayed 5 nights and this apartment is very spacious and very clean. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with every possible pot/pan/utensil needed for just about anything. There is a folder with helpful information about things to do and places to eat and where to find important services. There were lots of games, puzzles, books and magazines. If you're looking for a place to stay in the Tacoma area, I would highly recommend this apartment. We have rented lots of vacation rentals and this was definitely one of the best!

                        Excellent! Nicest, most comfortable VRBO property we’ve stayed at in Tacoma.

                        Looking forward to staying at the Aphrodite on our next trip to the area. Angela was very responsive. The apartment is large, very comfortable, beautiful antiques, had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend!

                        This is a delightful, spacious, well-appointed house. The location is perfect, with walkable neighborhood of shops and eateries. In town, but very quiet at night. We enjoyed our stay immensely.
