About the property

Beautiful View Property & Entertainer's Dream!

*This listing sleeps 7, but the property can accommodate up to 23! For larger groups, see optional accommodations below for their details and pricing.


This extraordinary property features beautiful views of the Puget Sound, Olympic Mountains, and Narrows Bridge. The

nearly 1/2 acre lot sits very close to Chambers Bay (and it's world famous golf course), University of Puget Sound,

downtown Tacoma, nightlife on 6th Ave. Titlow beach and water park, Tacoma Children's Museum, Emerald Queen

Casino, and an easy drive to Joint Base Lewis/McChord and Wild Waves water park. The entire property has been

thoroughly and recently updated with modern amenities while maintaining old world charm.

The property is an entertainer's dream! Hot tub, pickleball and basketball court, horseshoes, cornhole, volleyball, inground

firepit, huge dog kennel, stamped concrete patio and cobblestone walkways with plenty of dedicated driveway

parking, and you can bring your RV! We offer RV PARKING, with full hook ups for the RV including water, sewer,

electrical, and wifi for just $25 per day. Your rental includes very fast wireless internet (40 mbps), cable, streaming

video services, kitchen utensils, bedding, and basic toiletries. Please bring your own soap and shampoo. Now includes


Outdoor furniture includes three patio sets with tables and chairs, four Adirondack chairs, two benches, and roughly ten

standalone outdoor chairs. Enough to seat a small army ;)

THE HOME (SLEEPS 7):Your rental includes the twostory

main home. A basement apartment, detached cedar guest

suite, as well as RV with full hookups, are also available to rent at a very low cost for larger parties who would benefit

from their use (see below). The living room features oversized recliner couches, gas fireplace, flatscreen tv, cable TV, Playstation 4, and fully functional bar. The home features keyless entry, is child friendly, has a fully equipped

office (bring your own computer and printer), and a heat pump that provides both heat and air conditioning. We also offer optional daily maid service!

Upstairs in the main home are two bedrooms and one full bath, and on the main floor is a bedroom/office and another

bathroom (including shower). Each room has multiple beds to accommodate multiple people if so desired. For a

breakdown of beds available in each room, please see the amenities section of this listing.

OPTIONAL BASEMENT (SLEEPS 8): The basement of the main home is a high-class, self-contained, 1 bedroom

apartment with full kitchen, bathroom with shower, laundry, large living space, and a separate entrance. It is a great addition for larger parties or those wanting more space, and is attached to the main home, which makes for easy access

while still retaining privacy. The basement is roughly 4x as large as the RV mentioned below, and sleeps eight people

on three full beds and two twins. It is charged at just $75 extra per night and a flat $99 cleaning fee. Book up front or add at a later date.

OPTIONAL DETACHED CABIN RENTAL (SLEEPS 2): The optional detached cedar guest cabin features two

twin size (bunk) beds, tv with streaming services, internet, and kitchenette with sink, all with wonderful privacy. Like

the main home, it is accessed by door code, so no extra keys required. Charged at $25 per night and a flat $49

cleaning fee. Book up front or add at a later date.

OPTIONAL RV RENTAL (SLEEPS 6): The optional 2016 Keystone Passport Bunkhouse RV is a beautiful home located on the property and available for rental.

Thank you for the memories!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place for our family! We came together from California, Hawaii, and Texas to celebrate a wedding and enjoy a family reunion and this was the perfect setting. The property is beautiful and spacious with lots of outdoor space for kids to play (we had 8 between the ages of 2 and 10) and plenty of beds for all everyone to get a good night's rest.

Philip was easy to work with and always friendly. It was great to meet him and thank him in person! Thank you!

The wife and myself used this property so our 21 anniversary. We needed some alone time. The property was clean and well kept. It's close to pugit sound and is in a great location. I recommend it to anyone.

Lovely home, perfect fit our need

  • 5 of 5

We did our classmates reunion in Tacoma, people were from all over the world and some people had very tight schedule, we changed numbers of people during the reservation processing, Philip is great guy and made a couple of time changes for the payment schedule due to our uncertain number of members. When we arrived this lovely home, everybody enjoy staying and we had our first BBQ party on first night, house is full of stuff and we got everything we need for BBQ, it was great party, good memories for everybody. We would like rent this house for next reunion party in Tacoma.

This property is awesome. It looks small but housed 15 people very nicely.

  • 5 of 5

We loved being able to watch the sunset while in the jacuzzi. There were 15 of us in our party and plenty of room for all. The owner is great. He kept in touch to make sure all was well. This property will always be on my list of favorite places to stay while in Tacoma.

We had a blast!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from visiting Tacoma for my son's wedding. Philip's property is absolutely amazing. We rented the main house and the basement. There was plenty of room for all the guest staying and we didn't feel like we were limited on space. Upon arrival, looking at the house from the outside, we initially thought the house was really small. Once inside ... the house opened up revealing lots of room. There was plenty of linen, towels, cookware, etc. and one of my sisters even put out a bet to see if we could actually use all the linen during our stay. Well she lost. The house was fully stocked!!!

My son requested for us to do some of the cooking for wedding and having two fully stocked kitchens made the job a lot easier with preparation.

We also hosted a crab boil on one of the evenings of our stay which was a huge success. The outside space was amazing which offered plenty of seating and room for everyone to sit down and enjoy the food. Philip also provided additional tables and chairs for our use during the crab boil. This made for an awesome event where the guest were able to relax and enjoy the amazing views of the sound and bridge. We couldn't get enough of the outside space so on the day after the wedding we decided to have a bonfire which also went off without a hitch.

Philip made the check-in / check-out process very easy and was available IMMEDIATELY for any questions/issues/concerns we may have had during our stay. Also, completely unprompted or expected ... Philip provided a bottle of Champagne for the Bride and Groom that we used for Mimosas the following morning (Perfect). I would recommend this house for anyone visiting the Tacoma area. We had an awesome time.

Thank you Philip for everything (you're awesome) and hopefully on my next visit we will be able to stay in your property again.

Great place - would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

We were a fairly large group - 11 people for 2 nights, and 13 for one night - all adults. Rented the entire "complex" - main house, basement, RV & guest house. I was a little concerned when we first arrived because it not a very large house, but it is roomier on the inside than it looks. It got a little tight sometimes when we were all hanging out in the kitchen/dining room, but most places would be tight with 11 or 12 people in them. :) The bunk beds in the upstairs bedroom are not ideal for an adult, but for a short stay, or for kids they work. Plenty of room to gather outside, although for us the weather didn't cooperate very well! Philip was great to work with - he checked in with me every day via text to make sure things were OK, and when I mentioned a couple of little things the house could use he showed up with them an hour later! The house is well stocked, the towels, and the bedding are very nice. The location/neighborhood is nice and it was very quiet even on the weekend. There are grocery stores, fast food restaurants, and sit down restaurants very close, 5-10 minute drive. We were all over there for a family wedding and it was great to be able to all stay in one location - gave us a lot of family time. Everyone commented on how they could easily live in the house if it were an option. Very comfortable and homey feeling. Highly recommend it and since we have family over there we may very well be renting it again! Thanks again for your hospitality Philip!
