About the property

Perfectly located to downtown Tacoma and Ruston Way - quiet neighborhood

This retro chic North Tacoma home is the epitome of a boutique vacation home, that Harbor Home Vacation Rentals is proud to offer. Being in the quiet neighborhood of Old Town/North Tacoma this home is close to everything Downtown Tacoma has to offer but also just removed enough to enjoy peace and quiet.

With completely all new furnishings you'll feel right at home as soon as you walk through the front door. As you enter the home you'll have a clear view to the back of the home where the kitchenette sits, next to the kitchen and be welcomed by a spacious living room and entry way. The main level has an office, bathroom, bedroom (queen bed), 'kids room' (with 2 twin beds), the kitchen and kitchenette, as will as open dining room and living room.

Entering the home you'll see the office to your left with a perfect working space at the desk, as well as a day bed to enjoy the afternoon sun, curled up with a book. The large living room provides as the perfect space to relaxing watching tv or talking with friends. The dining room has a 6 foot round table for great family meals, and the kitchenette is perfect if you need to put the kids at their own table!

There are two bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and closet as well as a 'kids room' with two twin beds, but is as easily suited for two adults. There is also a full bathroom with a combined tub/shower.

When you walk downstairs you'll be greeted by your very own bar! There is a king bed with a small sitting space. To your right through a doorway is a full kitchen (stove top, oven, sink, dishwasher) with a small table and two bistro chairs. There is another bedroom off the kitchen, with a queen bed and full closet. There is also a bathroom with a shower, downstairs.

This home is perfect for a family coming to the area to explore or for those travelling for business that want some space. Being so close to everything you could need, including great restaurants, this space is a great home for anyone!

Cute House

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for our family to visit our son, who lives in Tacoma. Great location, in walking distance to his home, shops, and the waterfront. The house is very cute and well decorated. The kitchen held plenty of pots, pans and utensils for our family dinners. Our one complaint is that is was cold. I understand controlling the temperature for reasons of an old furnace, but it would be nice if there were extra blankets and throws for warmth. Sitting on the couch at night, everyone was cold. Those sleeping in the basement were very cold at night. And the basement was a bit musty. Otherwise a great rental.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry you were chilly! As an older home it does get chilly easily, there were additional blankets in the hallway closet as well as some of the dressers-- we wish we would have known and could have directed you to where they were or dropped off some extras/heaters if necessary. Additionally, we have since gotten dry heaters into the basement to alleviate the mustiness (it isn't mold! just an old home) and have heard they have fixed the issue. We hope you'll stay again and we can make it up to you!

Nicely done accomodating house

  • 5 of 5

The house worked nicely for our big group, lots of bedrooms and nicely decorated spaces. Nice places to walk (neighborhood, park, waterfront). On the expensive side and not having control of the thermostat (‘Nest’) was frustrating (we were cold). But overall great space and I would rent again if visiting Tacoma with a big group.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the home. We have since tried to address the issue with the heating, as it would always revert to the cooler temperature. As the home is on oil we don't want guests turning it up to 80 which is why it is usually locked. We definitely have taken this into consideration, however. We hope to have you again!

Owner's Response: We are so sorry about the 'damp' feeling in the basement. We have since gotten dry heaters for the home to help with this issue. As an old home it can sometimes be inevitable-- hopefully they help and hope to have you again!

Great place for our family!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a wedding and it was so lovely, spacious, and comfortable. Wonderful location and perfectly suited for 8 adults. The only concern was that it was musty in the basement and we woke up a bit stuffy, but the other couple who slept in the basement were fine. We'd definitely stay there again! Thank you!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This house was in a great location for us, near family and a family event venue. We could walk to the Stadium Thriftway in 20 minutes, or drive in 5 minutes to the Thriftway or Metropolitan Market. The house was spotlessly clean and the upstairs had great light and a view of the bay from the dining room. Combination lock system was very convenient as our family members were coming and going at different times.

The downstairs was also clean and comfortable but did lack light and felt a little damp.

There were plenty of towels and the kitchen was well equipped.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! Because of the fluctuation in temperature recently the downstairs feels a bit damp occasionally, but all is safe, I promise! We hope you enjoyed otherwise!
