Diamond in the Rough
We had originally planned for 13 adults and 5 children, but ended up with 11 adults and 1 child. We had room to spare! And that one lonely child cried fiercely when we checked out because she loved being in the big house with her parents and all of her aunts and uncles. We miss the Yakima House.
Mike has done a great job updating this home and making it homey. We used all four floors - of you include the laundry room in the basement- during our week-long stay for a family wedding in Tacoma. We had so much space and were so conveniently located, the groomsmen and groom ended up getting ready at the house with a couple of the bridesmaids taking over the attic/3rd floor. Even when the house was full, it still felt like it took take in more.
Having three FULL baths was a pleasant surprise and all three were put to good use. Mike had over a dozen towels stocked for us along with multiple rolls of toilet tissue in each restroom. The house was large enough that we found ourselves all spread out one evening with the our single child watching a movie in the living room, the ladies downstairs in the dining room and kitchen hanging out, the men holding a PS3 tournament in the second floor lounge/living room area, and a small group playing dominoes in the 3rd floor lounge area. Also, Mike has the kitchen well stocked with plenty of dishes, pots and pans. I have to say that the kitchen size, appliances, and equipment were probably my favorite part of the house!
The location downtown was central, close to freeway entrances, the reception venue, tons of museums, fun food spots, and family. Though the house does not have central air conditioning, it does have a central fan and a plethora of fans all throughout the house which we took advantage of.
Mike, the owner, is very helpful and responsive He got back to us promptly and kindly -- even came up to the house to help us fix something. He's done a wonderful job with this beautiful, old, fun home! Thank you for everything, Mike! Our Tacoma family is hoping to rent out your home for future family events! We'll send them your way when that comes to fruition. God bless you!
Met all our expectations
Our Girl Scout Troop had a great experience staying at this VRBO. There was room for everyone, the bathrooms were updated, everything was clean, and the owner was always available if we had any questions.
Great house for a great price
Michael was so great to work with. Super responsive to our needs the place was perfect for our large group on our visit to Tacoma. Highly recommended!!
Spacious, comfortable older home!
This house was plenty big enough for the 13 members of our family who stay there, and we had a whole floor to spare. The house is older, but it was well-kept up and nicely remodeled. There are definitely some homeless folks nearby, but the area stayed pretty quiet and we weren’t bothered by anyone. It was a great location to catch the bus to Seattle or walk around downtown Tacoma. We had a great time!
Room for all of us! Close to our events and fun activities downtown!
We loved having enough rooms for our family to stay together for a wedding we were in town for! It was updated nicely, clean, beautiful, very nice quality furniture, and well stocked. The house had multiple living room type spaces (3!- one on each floor) for the kids to have downtime activities. The spacious bedrooms were so quiet and allowed for kids naps or those that like to sleep in to not be woken up by those in the living room and kitchen. It is very close to everything we wanted to do downtown, including a short walk to the children's museum. Overall, a great experience and we would definitely do it again!
fabulous place for a big group
We had 16 adults and 3 babies! Not only were there enough bedrooms for the group, but the main floor living space was set up so that there could be two different group activities going on without disturbing each other. With cable TV available NHL hockey playoffs were watched by our hockey fans: a great bonus! Good WiFi too. Lots of seating space and kitchen facilities big enough to serve this large group! Those that wanted to sleep-in in the morning were able to...there are so many more pluses to this home, too many to list.
