I had questions before my stay here and the response was quick and accommodating. The rooms were very nice, relaxing, I'll be staying here again

I had the best time with Martin and Toni. The Villa was a great experience and made my trip very enjoyable. Felt right at home and very well taken care of. Thank You

Since our daughter started school at UPS, the Villa has been our home. Toni and Martin are delightful and always appear happy to see us. In one year we have formed a bond of friendship. The B&B stuff is great, but the warm welcome is exceptional!

Our stay was excellent. The breakfast was delicious and we didn't go away hungry. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Tacoma.

I'm completely pleased with my stay at The Villa. The location is quiet and peaceful and the room (we stayed in the pink room) was clean, comfortable, and just perfect. Toni gave me a tour of all of the other rooms and they are all beautiful! The breakfast was excellent as well as the coffee. Guests are welcome to use the Kurig, have snacks or a glass of wine for no extra charges. I enjoyed talking with the owners, Toni and Martin, very friendly and kind people. The Villa is close walking distance to parks and some nice restaurants too. We will positively be returning! The Villa is one of a kind. Thank you for the hospitality! Melissa and Cameron

My husband and I stayed here in the Napoli room for a quick birthday weekend get away. The house is very cool-especially if you're into history and old homes. It's also in a great area of Tacoma, close to downtown and hip 6th Ave. The hosts, Toni and Martin, are fabulous! They made us feel so welcome and took great care of us during our stay -plus, they are such interesting and fun people! They are so thoughtful, they even surprised us with birthday cake. At some B&Bs it's hard to feel at home, but at the Villa we always felt at ease. There are lovely seating areas with books, a fireplace, and even a small kitchen area for guests stocked with snacks and drinks. It's the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine, read a good book, or play cards. On top of that, the breakfast was out of this world with lots of fresh fruit and veggies. You'll definitely save money because you won't have room for lunch! Toni and Martin are down to earth and really go the extra mile for their guests. We'll definitely be back and highly recommend it!

Toni and Martin were excellent hosts, and made us feel like we were in our own home. We will be staying here again in the future. Thanks so much Toni and Martin.

Stayed with Toni and Martin at the Beautiful Villa in Tacoma, the night before my Besties Wedding! The girls (including the bride!) got ready for the Big Event at the Villa, and it was a perfect set up! They were amazingly gracious hosts, and everything went flawlessly. Beds and Rooms are super comfortable, and Breakfast was outstanding. Seriously...one of our favorite parts! Thanks Toni and Martin!
5 on March 06, 2014
Rooms were just wonderfully charming and very well decorated. Area in kitchen was stocked with snacks, tea, coffee, and water and could be accessed at any time. Wine was available in the dining room and again could be accessed at any time. The dining room itself was the perfect place to partake of Toni's incredibly tasty breakfast each morning. Each day she put out a different place setting and created seriously good food, including excellent coffee! A wonderful place run by wonderful people. I will definitely stay here again.
4.6 on March 03, 2014
This BnB is located in the best section of Tacoma and near downtown. Our stay exceeded my expectations in regards to location, value, room ambiance and cleanliness. Breakfast was always a special treat and the innkeepers were warm and exceedingly friendly without being 'in your face.' Would definitely stay here again and hardily recommend.

We just hosted our annual alumni reception at The Villa. It was an outstanding experience with rave reviews from all for both the beautiful and historic venue and the host! Toni was surprisingly flexible and accommodating with no hint of attitude or resistance as we sometimes find with event venues. She carefully listened to and responded to all of our needs and went out of her way to provide thoughtful little extras, accommodate our guests and did more than her share to make sure that a fabulous and memorable time was had by all. I have been doing professional events for 23 years and my experience with The Villa and Toni Savol was one of the easiest, affordable, most successful and most pleasant in memory. I definitely recommend this venue for social events, meetings, special occasions, weddings and professional gatherings.
4.2 on February 28, 2014
Very comfortable & quiet in historic district of Tacoma. Breakfasts were exquisite, esp. fruit & yogurt. Uncrowded street parking. Easy access to Tacoma attractions & restaurants.

Had the opportunity to stay at this gorgeous Bed and Breakfast for an early Valentines Day getaway, and loved every single part of it. The old mansion itself is wonderful inside and out, and if you've got the time we highly recommend you take the owner-guided tour... the food was delicious, hot and fresh prepared for us as we sat in the dining room and relaxed... but possibly best of all were the owners. They were warm, friendly, funny, and more than happy to sit and chat with you OR to leave you to your privacy. We felt a bit like family when we left, and will definitely go back!
4.8 on February 08, 2014
A beautiful home with two delightful hosts. The best breakfast I've had in a B&B, and we've done many.
4.8 on January 10, 2014
From the warm greeting at our arrival to the hug and sincere invitation to come again--we were treated like family. The home was decorated so beautifully for Christmas! We've told our friends that it was like staying at the White House and we were the favored guests. This was our second visit. Toni made delicious breakfasts both morning. Lovely presentation of fresh fruit granola and yogurt, yummy egg dish, fluffiest pancakes we've ever had, crisp bacon, and cheesecake to top it off. It's the holidays! Toni and Martin provide everything you need and more than you even knew you wanted. They consider your every desire. The rooms are warm, welcoming and definitely comfortable. A refrigerator is available with beverages and room for leftovers that you might bring home from dinner out. Your comfort is their priority. The rooms are reasonably price. We know that the Villa will be a regular getaway destination for us. You will enjoy a stay. Try it out when in the Tacoma area!

We stayed at The Villa for New Years Eve and it was wonderful. Our room was very clean , and Toni and Martin were awesome. I would definitely stay there again.

We were attending a wedding in Tacoma and decided to stay at The Villa. We were very pleased with all amenities and really appreciated Toni and Martin's flexibility. We asked them to help us with a last minute decision to host a rehearsal dinner at The Villa. They provided some terrific ideas and helped with acquiring and/or making food for the event. Overall, a great value and most importantly - we felt at home.
5 on October 28, 2013
Our hosts Martin and Toni were wonderful, breakfast was wonderful. Highly recommend the Villa! This was our fourth stay and it has been great every time.
5 on October 19, 2013
We had a relaxed visit to Tacoma. Since we had not visited Tacoma before, the hosts, Martin and Toni, gave us ideas and maps to help us get around. The breakfast was fantastic: fresh fruit with Greek yogurt and granola, individual soufflés with fresh Chanterelle mushrooms on the side, toast, orange juice, and coffee. We were so full that we didn't need to eat the rest of the day! This is one B&B we will visit again!
5 on October 14, 2013
The Villa was one of the highlights of our trip on the Pacific coast trip!! Great breakfasts and great hosts.....Thank you Toni and Martin!

Great location in Tacoma in a very cool neighborhood of old, historic homes. Swell room with great terrace and water views.
5 on October 11, 2013
We were amazed at the beautiful mansion. It was as if we were staying in a castle and we were royalty. The food was perfect, decor beautiful, hosts were like family. The photos on the website should be redone - they don't begin to do it justice! We plan to stay again.
5 on September 10, 2013
Our first trip to the Seattle-Tacoma area. Staying at The Villa made it memorable. Toni and Martin were charming hosts and made us feel at home and also provided us with a lot of local activities and sites to see. We loved staying at an older historic home - the home and grounds are beautiful. The breakfasts were great and very filling. We are already planning our next visit. We will definitely stay at The Villa again.

Very close to our home and intended for a getaway which we enjoyed very much.
5 on September 05, 2013
My husband and I stayed here one night for our anniversary. We were looking for a comfy, close to home getaway and The Villa fit the bill perfectly! Our hosts Toni & Martin were wonderful - made us feel so welcome! The huge breakfast Toni prepared for us was amazing! Will certainly stay with them again if the opportunity arises!!!
4.4 on September 01, 2013
My daughter and I spent three nights at this beautiful B&B. The room was charming, clean, and comfortable with an adjacent bath with shower and Jacuzzi. Breakfasts were fabulous! Fresh fruit cup with 7 or 8 different ripe fruits, egg soufflés and blueberry pancakes, coffee cakes and muffins - all delicious! Owners Toni and Martin were extremely friendly, accommodating, generous, and helpful. Little niceties included wine, coffee, tea, and snacks for the guests anytime they chose to help themselves. There is no place else in Tacoma I would rather stay!
5 on August 31, 2013
The rooms were clean, Toni was very nice and overall The Villa is a great value for the money (much better than other B&Bs in the area).
5 on August 25, 2013
We had a wonderful experience at The Villa! Everything was perfect -- the room, fabulous neighborhod that was close to everything and breakfast was yummy! Toni and Martin are perfect hosts!
4.6 on August 14, 2013
My husband and I stayed one night here in August 2013. The neighborhood is quiet and has some beautiful views! Martin was kind enough to let us see views from other rooms and Terri was so much fun to chat with. Great home and location.
4.2 on August 09, 2013
I looked high and low searching for the perfect spot for a one night romantic getaway, I couldn't have been happier with my choice in Villa Bed and Breakfast. What a gorgeous place tucked away in beautiful North Tacoma. Toni couldn't have been more accomodating and even allowed us to have our ( delicious) breakfast on a rooftop deck overlooking the water! Our room was perfect, the bed was oh so comfortable! We will definitely be back.
5 on August 08, 2013
The home is beautiful, the decor is charming and elegant and the locations is perfect. The thing about bed and breakfasts's is sometimes u have to share the bathroom, well this home was built for a man who had 7 daughters who all wanted their own bathrooms. So all the rooms have their own! Our room was the 1 with the jacuzzi tub, it was the selling point for this room. Toni let us explore the home and see the rooms that were empty and all are amazing as are the verandas. The robes left for us were soft and comfy, almost as nice as the fluffy pillows on the bed! There is a sun room that you can sit and enjoy while drinking your complimentary wine. The kitchen is filled with snacks and mini fridges in the hallways filled with different drinks that you are free to drink. The tub was amazing, and the jets worked perfectly. Even the soaps and shampoos left for us were great.Now the owners, We arrived very late after a long day. Toni greeted us with a huge smile, She showed us our room, then we left to go eat. When we returned there were 2 bottles of champagne left in ice and yummy homemade cookies in front of our room. This gesture really meant a lot and made our honeymoon that much better. The next morning Toni suggested we go to the veranda in the top floor since no one was staying there. She then brought us the most amazing breakfast. Parfait that had freshly cut fruit of all kinds, an entire plate full of bacon,muffins and keesh. They took our photo for us and let us enjoy our breakfast on the veranda. We got to have a conversations with them and learn the homes history. I really could go on and on. we were treated and fed like kings, I feel like we stayed at a 5 star hotel. To top it all off, we were given a 10% discount as a gift for our wedding. We are already planning our next stay!!!!

We arrived July 28th and stayed thru August 1st, 2013. Breakfast began with large fruit bowls heaped with superbly fresh, local, fruit bedded on a sweet yogurt and granola foundation. After the fruit appetizer, Toni and Martin would serve us a main dish that varied daily. Coffee and juice, of course. The meals were so filling and enjoyable, we normally skipped lunch as we wandered around Tacoma on our 30th Anniversary-celebrating vacation. Martin, especially, knew Tacoma "like the back of his hand" and could direct us to daily "tourist attractions" or food-type specific restaurants. We stayed in Caserta. We loved the two-person, jetted bath; definitely large enough for a "cozy" and romantic "dual soak". The bed was very comfortable for both of us. The overhead fan, and the shade of the garden outside of the room, acted like the perfect "air-conditioning", despite the heat of the Tacoma nights. Though located close to downtown Tacoma, neither of us heard "city-night" noise, or neighbor's noise or the noise of anyone else in the house. Toni and Martin were excellent hosts for the week. Because of our extended stay, they were generous enough to not charge us any amount for the two times our sons visited us and spent the night and ate breakfast with us. Anyone saying anything malicious or derogatory concerning the intense concern and appreciation that Toni and Martin have for their guests is simply a troll who should go back under their bridge. Trolls never have an appreciation for Fairy god-Mothers and Fathers who make their castle your home. Toni and Martin, thank you very much for making your Villa B&B Mansion our home, too. Kev & Peg, MT.

My husband and I stayed here for 8 days while visiting our military son. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations or the hosts. In fact, our plans were to just stay 5 days, but we decided to spend our whole vacation here in this lovely old "mansion". We stayed in the Amalfi room, which was spacious and comfortable even though it is one of the smaller rooms. The bed was comfortable, and the ensuite bathroom was large and bright. Toni and Martin are super friendly, and they did everything they could to make us feel welcome and happy. Toni is a superb cook, and we were delighted with the variety of breakfasts we enjoyed. Food and presentation were exceptional. One morning we had to get up very early to go whale-watching, so Toni prepared a to-go breakfast for us! The house itself is in fine condition for its age, and Toni and Martin are working to get it just perfect. One thing that we appreciated most was that our hosts invited us to use the beautiful, enormous sitting room. We also had access to a pleasant outdoor deck and a solarium, so that when our son came, we could enjoy these rooms as if we were home. There was even a butler's pantry where we could get tea and coffee as well as snacks. We've stayed in many BnBs in our travels, and this one rates at the top of our list. We will definitely come back. I cannot say enough good things about it!

We chose The Villa B & B because they accepted the BedandBreakfast.com gift card. We were celebrating our anniversary in Tacoma. The Villa is a lovely old home. Tony & Martin, the new owners are wonderful hosts. They are working hard to bring this home back to its former glory. Martin met us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the home along with its history. Tony served us a wonderful breakfast. Her souffle is so delicious. They surprised us with an anniversary treat in our room. We enjoyed wonderful conversation with them and felt like old friends by the time we left for home. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at The Villa and meeting the wonderful innkeepers, Toni and Martin Savol. Toni and Martin are the new owners of this magnificent Bed and Breakfast located in a beautiful Tacoma neighborhood. I wanted a special place to celebrate my husband's birthday and The Villa was perfect! Toni and Martin welcomed us and made us feel right at home. The home feels warm and inviting, is beautifully decorated, and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast was tasty! Toni is a great cook and both she and Martin made sure we had everything we could possibly need or want. My only regret is that we were only there for one night but we will definitely be back to enjoy more of this couple's gracious hospitality. I highly recommend a stay at The Villa! Thank you Toni and Martin for a wonderful visit. I look forward to seeing you again soon!
5 on May 27, 2013
Great place! Heads-up: Mattresses are very firm. Owner is wonderful. I'm not really a chatty person, and I think she picked up on that (or my hubby stepped in for me, not sure) so I was really able to just chill out. There's always coffee/tea available! Would recommend to family/friends coming to visit/needing a place to stay. Also: fantastic views from the balconies.

My husband and I stayed at The Villa during Uni of Puget Sound's Graduation weekend. The Villa is a fabulous, stately home and the new owners, Toni and Martin are the best hosts. We were treated like family, as were all the guests. Toni and Martin provide plenty of common areas for all their guests to use: the large living room, dining room and sunroom. A part of the kitchen is available just for guests to use to make coffee or tea at any time. Such warm hosts and such a welcoming place to stay!! We highly recommend The Villa. This had the been our first stay at The Villa and it is now our favourite place to stay in Tacoma. Thank you Toni and Martin!! PS our son thanks you for providing him with a bag of snacks to make up for not having time to eat breakfast due to an early morning flight. He didnt even stay at The Villa and we are all very touched by your kindness.
5 on April 10, 2013
My husband and I so enjoyed our stay at the Villa Bed & Breakfast and will definitely return soon. Toni and Martin are the new owners and made our time in this beautiful home an absolute joy. They both are warm and caring people who made us feel so comfortable and pampered with good food and great conversation. Definitely give this B & B a look and stay, you will not be disappointed.

The Innkeepers were very friendly and helpful. The yard had been in disrepair for some time. The renovation of the yard started while we were there. It was actually fun to watche the work going on and picture what the grounds will look like in a short time. Very much enjoyed our stay.

It's not necessary to stay over night at The Villa to enjoy the hospitality of your host and hostess. Great place for a special event!

My husband and I stayed at The Villa while in town to see America's Car Museum, plus a trip to the airport the next day. Location was convenient to both. Located in a quiet neighborhood, with local restaurants nearby. Our hosts were wonderful, and the house is a unique gem. Next time we're in town, we'll look to stay at The Villa again.
3.2 on February 21, 2013
Spent a night here in celebration of Valentine's Day. The new managers are very nice, and made sure we had the things we needed. They gave us a more expensive room (at no extra cost) to make up for our requested room being double booked. They also allowed us to check out very late, which was great. Toni and Martin have every desire to restore the Villa to its former glory.
5 on December 31, 2012
I recently had the most wonderful experience staying at the Villa. The new owners Martin and Toni are the perfect hosts and make staying at the Villa, like coming home to see the family in their magnificent home. Everything about my stay was perfect and I will be returning the next time I visit Tacoma. Connie G.

We have just arrived home to Colorado after spending the last several days in Washington state to visit several colleges. We were so fortunate to come across the Villa Bed and Breakfast when we were looking for accommodations in Tacoma, Washington. The building was amazing and such a wonderful Italian Tuscan feel in the middle of this city. The home was so warm, open, friendly atmosphere, and also the paint colors added to the very warm environment. The breakfast was delicious-more food than we normally have for breakfast, but set us up well for our day!! We want to thank Toni, Marten, and Kristy for making our stay great. We would highly recommend this place and situated in a nice part of Tacoma.

A great bed and breakfast close to the University of Puget Sound campus. Great for parents visiting their college children. The room included a wonderful breakfast, fabulous living room for a quiet retreat, and a divine jacuzzi tub in my room to melt away the "move in" stresses of the weekend. Thank you for the hospitality and comfort!

Though I agree it may be difficult to obtain a reservation ... it's well worth the effort. Beautiful home with gracious hostess.

After unending research on the internet, I decided to stay at The Villa B&B the night before and the night of my wedding because I found the B&B to be charming and exactly what I was looking for as a place to prepare myself for my big day. I was completely blown away by the amazing service and hospitality that Kristy provided. Even though I had to leave the next morning by 7am she was up to have breakfast ready for me at 6:30. Later that day the villa was opened up to my Bridesmaids and myself, to come back to get ready for the wedding and take pictures anywhere in the Villa that we wanted. I never felt so beautiful in my life and I know that the surroundings of The Villa only enhanced the experience. When my husband and I returned late that evening, we were welcomed home to our room with lit candles, chilled sparkling cider and rose petals around the room. We were both so thrilled and touched by this special treat. The next morning Kristy brought us a wonderful and yummy breakfast in bed which was a great way to start our first morning as husband and wife. I can't thank Kristy enough for everything she did for us and I will always remember my stay as a beautiful experience from start to finish. I will continue to always recommend this B&B to anyone whom wants a romantic getaway or even a place to relax and reflect. We will definitely be back and can't wait to do so!
4.8 on August 09, 2011
We spent a day in Tacoma on a two-week trip to the PNW, specifically to see the Tacoma Glass Museum. The Museum, with it's working hot shop and glass blowing, is not to be missed. But the rest of this wonderfully restored, vibrant and very interesting, historic city was a nice surprise, including finding a charming B&B in the city's old Stadium District, a few blocks from beautiful Commencement Bay.
4.4 on August 07, 2011
The Villa B&B is a very picturesque place with classic room design including modern amenities. Breakfast was delicious and very filling. Timeliness was not a priority so if you have a place to be early the next morning, this may not be the best place for you. Otherwise, this is great for the relaxed traveler.

GOOD POINTS The room was quaint The bed was comfortable The breakfast was good BAD POINTS Creaky floors, old bathroom, old 19 TV with no remote Kristy, the owner, talks about herself and her family way too much. It was sort of uncomfortable for us. We will not come back.

Something can up and could don't our planned tripped. Canceled the reservations. They were very nice and easy to work with. Hope to stay there another time.
3.2 on February 22, 2011
My wife and I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Villa and found it very comfortable. Kristy was extremely pleasant and the house was well maintained considering we visited during what can charitably be described as the off peak season, read the dead of winter. We have not spent much time in the Tacoma area and we used the Villa as our temporary home as we sought out some of the south ends "to do" things. Our room was comfortable and attractively maintained and breakfast was satisfying and well presented. All in all the Villa was a nice place to stay the evening.
4.6 on December 16, 2010
The house is beautiful and has such wonderful charm. I would love to live here and make this my home. It was an adventure to spend the night in a city so close to us yet we had never explored. Kristy was a wonderful host and with such good taste! P.S. Hello to Lucy!
5 on November 16, 2010
What an awesome B&B! Beautifully decorated! Kristy sees to it that no detail is left out of your visit. Even the bulldog Lucy greets you when you come in the door. Very relaxing and worth a stay!
4.2 on October 26, 2010
Needed somewhere close to Seattle to go for a little birthday getaway with my spouse. This place was charming, not too far away, and totally within our budget. Loved the ambience and Kristy was a great hostess. The room was beautiful - would give higher marks except that the jets in the tub weren't working right. Highly recommend the Villa.
4.2 on September 01, 2010
My husband and I spent a night at the Villa Bed and Breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is beautifully decorated. Our room was likewise appointed with a large and terrific bathroom.
