About Warren Knapp (Ridge)

I'm a third generation Washingtonian with a love of the Puget Sound area.

Why Warren Knapp (Ridge) chose Tacoma

We chose this location because of the spectacular water views and it has plenty of bedrooms to accommodate large groups.

What makes this house unique

The spaciousness of the rooms and the covered double deck gazebos facing the water. It makes for amazing sunsets out over the southwest. The house also features many windows to see the water views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

...Also want to let you know we really enjoyed the house. It was a very busy weekend so don't really feel like we were able to relax and enjoy the house, especially the deck and the view. It did work really nice for all of the wedding preparations and decorations. We were able to spread things out and organize things but also had plenty of room for the kids to play and a little football watching! It really did work out well for us! I thought everything went well from the reservation to checking out. Thank you so much for everything!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our relatives from OH and MI thoroughly enjoyed their stay at Del Mar Ridge. It was great to be able to have them all together. House was set-up perfectly - no problems. Will recommend Del Mar Ridge to others.

A family gathering

  • 4 of 5

We had a family wedding to attend nearby and enjoyed being together at the house instead of all in separate hotel rooms. The property is a little dated but large and offered us plenty of sleeping options for the entire family. We had a family medical emergency and had to call 911. The fire department were at the house in less than 5 minutes followed immediately by the EMTs. They were fantastic and very responsive to the needs of the emergency. The small brochure on the counter listed hospitals in the area and we were able to ask a family member who used to live in the area which hospital would be the best to go to. All in all it was a beautiful long weekend at the house, at the hospital and at the wedding!

A fun stay in a spacious, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

This is an older home but was very comfortable and clean. The entire process from booking to check out was well communicated and Warren was very easy to work with and accommodating. Our group of friends had a great time - it was a perfect stay for us being minutes away from all of our events. A safe neighborhood with lots of parking available. The only downside, the dishes in the kitchen need to be replenished - short on glasses and coffee mugs and probably time for some new mattresses but overall we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Fantastic Family Friendly Property!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 6 days in Seattle area for the wedding of a family member. We couldn't have been more pleased with this home. Upon our arrival everything was ready and waiting for us. The home was clean and had everything we could possibly need to make our stay enjoyable and stress free. There was plenty of space for everyone and the location was great. Warren communicated well leading up to our stay so it made everything super easy upon our arrival. There were also great instructions at the home to help us during our stay. If you are looking for a great home with plenty of space and comfortable accommodations I would highly recommend it!

Great place for a group

  • 4 of 5

DelMar Ridge was a great location for our 4 days in Tacoma. Everything we did was just a short drive away. House was well equipped, response to a problem prompt, and there was plenty of room for our group. Other than beds that probably need new mattresses, we were very pleased. Good welcome brochure and clear check out info. I hope it is available on our next visit to Tacoma.

Excellent time at Del Mar Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We visited Tacoma for our son's wedding. The house was perfect for our large family. Lots of space. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking items. The gazebo decks were perfect for hanging out and connecting with family. We especially liked the one off the master bedroom. The views were spectacular. There were plenty of towels, sheets, blankets. The bathrooms were even stocked with shampoo, body wash and paper goods. There were many fans in the house, so not having air conditioning was not an issue. Would definitely rent again and would recommend this property to others.
