This modern ocean view 2-bed / 1-bath (825 square feet) condo is on a tree-lined street in one of Tacoma's best neighborhoods (North Slope). It is on the middle floor (no stairs) of a quiet, safe, 11 unit building. The property is next door to The William Ross Rust Mansion, one of the largest mansions in Tacoma. This historic neighborhood is filled with stately 100-year-old houses, and views of Commencement Bay.

The condo is minutes to downtown, Old Town, the Ruston Way waterfront, the hip 6 Ave. Commercial district, UPS, UW, the hospital and Point Defiance Park, Zoo, Aquarium, and is a few blocks south of the prestigious private Annie Write School.

The condo is substantially remodeled with a new fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, garburator, Keurig coffee maker with gourmet coffee, a drip coffee maker); a new bathrooms with a Jacuzzi bathtub. The unit has a balcony overlooking tree lined Yakima Ave. and a good view of the bay (ocean).

There is a washer and dryer in the condo.

The condo is a dedicated short term furnished executive rental.

The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a comfortable mattress.

The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a comfortable mattress.

The dining room has a table and chairs for 4, and there are an extra 2 chairs (total 6 chairs). The dining room has a sliding glass door to the balcony.

The front door access is from the outside (the building has no interior hallways or elevator). Free onsite parking is available in front and behind the unit. I recommend you use the rear parking for this unit, as no stairs are required for access from the rear parking.

There is plenty of closet storage. Toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, soap), a hair dryer, iron, ironing board and coffee are provided.

1) Master Bedroom: Queen bed with comfortable mattress

Slightly further and you are the Museums of Glass, the Tacoma Art Museum, the Washington State History Museum, the universities (UPS & UW), the Rialto and Pantages Theaters, and Point Defiance Park, Zoo and Aquarium.

Great Value

  • 5 of 5

Great condo! Wonderful location! At this price point, this is a 5-star stay. It’s nice to have fully separate rooms when traveling with others. The condo has good Wi-Fi which all three of us used without any difficulties. We never had a problem with parking our vehicle (something that can’t be said for the rest of the neighborhood). The neighborhood itself is a delightful mix of low-rise condos and single-family homes, some stately, others modest, but our nights were quiet – no noise from nearby roads or highways. And morning coffee was enjoyed on the balcony - a great place for collecting thoughts for the day with a partial view of the harbor and people watching (joggers, dog walkers, etc.)

Drawbacks? Not many. The secondary bedroom is smaller and does not have a dresser for unpacking, but it does have a sizable closet (bring your own hangers.) Also, there aren’t many utensils for heavy cooking. For making a daily breakfast, it was just fine, and there is a large Fred Meyer grocery store not too far away.

It is handy to have the washer/dryer in the unit. I used this several times to fully dry my towels after use. If you’re not from the area, Tacoma can be fairly humid and it takes a while for thick terry cloth to hang dry. The sheets are comfy and the beds, though new, are foam topped and a bit squishy. If you need a super firm mattress, this is not the place for you.

We did not meet the owner/operator in person, and it wasn’t necessary. He was accessible but unobtrusive. The arrangements with the locks and the way the instructions were given were efficient and complete. Tim did reach out to us to check on us a couple of times, but everything was fine.

Overall, our party of three enjoyed these accommodations. We would stay here again.

Enjoyed having the space of the apartment and the fully stocked kitchen. This worked perfectly for us. It was a cute / comfortable place to stay for such a reasonable price. We'll be back again.

Nice & Cozy very convenient and affordably priced. I appreciated the owners communication and it made for an easy journey. Nice view of the water from the deck and the condo is on a very cute cobblestone street. I would stay here again.

Clean convenient in quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Great condo with easy access to mass transit or use parking lot for a car. Clean and well taken care of in a quiet neighborhood overlooking Sound. Easy access to day trips to Seattle, Mt Rainier or just walk downtown Tacoma. Grocery is 10 min drive, waterfront is 10 min walk (downhill), little longer on return trip to Old City Tacoma.

Condo had everything we needed, we only brought clothes and groceries. Cooked dinner in several nights.

Thanks Ron.

NOTE RE CLEANING COSTS:
The $70 I charge for cleaning is what it costs me to pay a cleaner for 2 hours. 90% of guest’s checkout cleaning is covered in the 2 hour fee. But occasionally a guest is abnormally messy. Consequently, we have instituted a policy where we will deduct from your $200 deposit any additional cleaning required, at the rate of $35 per hour, to return the condo to its pre-rented condition.
