About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Ocean View, Jaccuzi tub, Sleeps 6

This modern ocean view 2-bed / 2-bath (920 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. Walk to grocery, restaurants, cafes, movies.

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); two new bathrooms, one with a Jacuzzi bathtub/shower and one with a shower. The unit has a balcony overlooking tree lined Yakima Ave. and a good view of the bay (ocean).

There is a new smart TV with cable, WiFi, High Speed Internet, and en-suite laundry.

This condo is a dedicated short term furnished executive rental.

The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a comfortable mattress, and an en-suite bathroom with a shower.

The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a comfortable mattress, and has a hidden washer dryer.

The living room has a sofa and chair, and a sliding glass door to the balcony.

The dining room has a table and chairs for 4.

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.

The bus stop is in front of building on Yakima Ave.

Within two minutes by car (or a 15 walk) you are at the best Tacoma has to offer: restaurants, coffee shops, stores, grocery store, the Ruston Way waterfront walking path, the Tacoma Little Theater, downtown, the convention center, hospital, and the Movie Theaters.

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.

Seattle is 40 minuets north on 1-5. Portland is 2.5 hours south. Mt Rainier National Park is 2 hours away. Olympia National Park is 2.5 hour drive.

Excellent location and view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great!

Cleaning was not "guest ready". The rug was not vacuumed, dusting was needed, towels etc, were drying in the dryer and the dishwasher hadn't been run. So we needed to dust, fold linens, run the vacuum and the dishwasher when we arrived. The important things like sinks, toilets were clean and ready.

Great for Family Visit

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting children and grandchildren that live nearby. It is a quiet location but still close enough to quickly and easily get to highway to travel to my son's home.

Lovely View from Very Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I rented this condo for six nights.

Upon arrival the condo was in first rate order.

Everything needed for a comfortable stay was in the unit.

The bedding was excellent and the other furniture was also of very good quality.

The owner was a pleasure to deal with and I would not hesistate to use the flat again when visiting Tacoma.

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.

This is a quiet condo building with mostly adult and senior condo owners. This condo is good for couples, families, friends traveling together. Parties, partying, loud music, noise will not be tolerated. This is a no smoking unit. Check in time is 4 pm. Check out times is 11 am.
