Like a B&B, but with MUCH MORE privacy! We converted 1/3 of our home into a SEPARATE space (but not an easy fit in the new airbnb categories): private entrance (keypad for flexibility; early check in often possible), private bathroom (double size shower), 2 clean & comfy rooms, home gym, Continental Breakfast Bar, full fridge, microwave, toaster (no kitchen), & lovely outdoor spaces. Guests enjoy us as a launching point for visiting tourist sights, family or friends, and for business travel.

Jim's and Tamaya's place was just what we needed and wanted. It wasn't just the cleanliness, easy check in, clear communication, and privacy. All the little touches made us feel so welcome. The value is great- two rooms! Plus two small tables with chairs indoors and even outdoor…

We came into town to see a Rainier's game and this is close to the stadium. We didn't plan our trip until last-minute and Tamaya responded immediately! It is a large place and we didn't need to use it all and stayed downstairs. The shower is great! They have food in the…
