Absolute Perfection!

5 on January 06, 2015

My husband and I stayed three nights at The Villa and discovered that this lovely B&B provides not only all the comforts of a home but the most amazing hosts who will treat you like family, serve the most amazing breakfasts we have ever eaten, and offer their entire home as if it were yours during your stay. The home is lovingly decorated with antiques and the rooms are magnificent. Our room had a private bathroom with a jetted tub and the most gorgeous multi-colored chandelier! We arrived later than expected (after midnight) and Martin was waiting up to let us in and show us around the downstairs rooms. One of my favorite rooms was a conservatory with floor to ceiling windows, garden plants and comfortable chairs. There were books and interesting board games all over the house. It was just after Christmas and I counted at least seven beautifully decorated Christmas trees inside the home. There were multiple balconies off many of the rooms with magnificent views of the water. Not only did our stay exceed our expectations, we can't wait to return again! The owners are gracious and great conversationalists! Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you Martin and Toni for your generosity and great friendship! Lou and Cathy Castro

Weekend wedding

5 on December 09, 2014

We spent a lovely weekend while attending a wedding here in Tacoma every morning for breakfast was wonderful. Service was always attentive. If we plan to come to Tacoma again we will certainly plan to stay at this wonderful B&B.

Family wedding

4.2 on November 04, 2014

We were there for a family wedding, which occupied the whole building. What a great place. Everything was relaxed and felt just like home, except I didn't have to wash dishes. More than ample parking is available, is in a quiet neighborhood. Food was excellent. Very nice experience.

The Most Wonderful Bed & Breakfast

5 on October 21, 2014

We were visiting our newlywed daughter and her in-laws in Tacoma, and we were lucky to find this wonderful bed and breakfast. We had a wonderful stay there. Every single aspect of this place is delightful. The hosts are a special couple who genuinely love what they do. The house is stunning, and the rooms—all with private bath—are charming, quiet, and comfortable. A great deal of thought has gone into the amenities. Shelves and cupboards throughout the house are stocked with board games and books for guests to curl up with in their rooms or in the beautiful living room, dining room, or sun room. The piano in the living room waits for guests to play it. A guest kitchen off the main kitchen is available day and night for tea or coffee and home-baked cookies and other snacks. Inviting verandahs with lovely views entice you to take your coffee outside. The breakfasts alone are worth the price of the stay. Thanks to Toni’s suggestion, we invited our group to join us for breakfast right at the Villa. What an incredible breakfast and what wonderful and friendly service! If you have visited bed and breakfasts before, you will instantly appreciate how special this one is. If you are hesitant about staying in someone else’s home, don’t be. You will feel at ease and comfortable as soon as Martin or Toni greets you at the door. Naser & Debbie

Comfortable, Clean, Caring

5 on September 28, 2014

Toni and Martin are the perfect hostess and host! The Villa is spacious, inviting, and totally comfortable. We certainly will return on our next trip. Highly recommended. The Villa more than met our expectations for comfort, cleanliness, and a hospitality that puts one at ease immediately. One note: Toni creates delicious breakfasts, nutritious for the body and the eye!

The Villa B&B is the best!

5 on August 22, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa B&B in Tacoma. Our hosts Toni and Martin were amazing. And our breakfast was out of this world. Our only regret was that we did not have more time to explore the neighbourhood and enjoy all the amenities at The Villa. This is a must-visit if you are staying in Tacoma.

A quick stay

4.0 on August 07, 2014

We just spent a couple of nights at The Villa, and everything worked out well. All in all, there was nothing that didn't meet or exceed our expectations. Toni was very friendly and a great cook as well. Special requests were no issue. Good value for a B&B in the Sea/Tac area.

Toni & Martin are innkeepers extraordinaire!

5 on July 30, 2014

I recently rented out The Villa B&B for a retreat my non-profit organization hosted and it was AMAZING. Toni & Martin were attentive, paid close attention to every detail, and anticipated every need I could possible have had. They made sure we knew our way around town and how to find the best services Tacoma had to offer. I felt like we were a team. The house is stunning. The views are incredible. The rooms are unique and full of character. And, the breakfast served each morning delighted everyone in our group. I'd definitely return and most certainly recommend them to anyone looking to host an event in Tacoma or just get away for the weekend. Well-done, Toni & Martin!
