A Mile From The Washington State Fairgrounds

Excellent! 4.7/5 -
(6 traveler reviews)


Property Details

Updated: Nov 20, 2016
3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 5

This private house is located in a historic neighborhood in downtown Puyallup. We are just one mile from The Washington State Fairgrounds and within walking distance to restaurants, stores, parks, the Meeker Mansion and Karshner Museum. We are also a block away from the Riverwalk recreational trail. The house is a charming 1930's house with a fully fenced large, private yard. The main level of the house has two bedrooms, one with a Nest Bedding firm queen sized bed and one with a green tea, aloe gel infused memory foam full sized bed. The upstairs has matching twin sized beds with super comfortable mattresses. The kitchen is stocked full of basic necessities. The home has retained her original vintage charm with updates in all of the right places. Our goal is for you to be comfortable and feel like you are right at home. In June 2015 the house was updated with a fresh coat of paint inside and out, all new furniture, mattresses, linens and kitchen accessories. We recently added a new propane outdoor grill and a Keurig coffee maker with a huge selection of coffee, teas and cocoa.

About the Owner

We live just a couple of minutes up the hill from here. We own a small farm where we rescue sick or neglected animals. We have helped goats, chickens, ducks, dogs and cats. We enjoy traveling, but with so many animals my husband and I have to take turns vacationing.

lots of character and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this home. The beds were very comfortable with lots of linen, blankets and plenty of towels in the bathroom. I loved the welcome bathroom amenity basket, the welcome mints in the living room area and a small basket of snacks in the kitchen. House was clean with a huge backyard area. It is an older house with lots of character. It was great with the 3 bedrooms, with twin beds in the roof area. The only difficulty we had was one bathroom, and with 3 females and 1 male, we had to set up a schedule for bathing. Cute kitchen with Laundry room downstairs was great. I would stay here again.

Clean, quiet and spacious

  • 5 of 5

This house is a hidden gem! The furnishings are luxurious. The owner provides the best brands of quality kitchenware, mattresses and toiletries. She left us some treats and beverages. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. We were able to walk to restaurants and a couple of great parks. Puyallup has a great farmers market and a splash park for the kids. We had a great vacation and our host was so sweet and helpful. I have already made an additional reservation here.

Enjoyable and Easy to Locate

  • 4 of 5

This is a well maintained property and the property Manager/Owner Lisa is a gem. She is very friendly and easy to reach and very attentive to your needs. We were a family of four and stayed for 1 month for the summer holidays. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to other holiday makers. The place is also not far from popular tourist attractions in Puyallup (walking distance) and easy commute to Seattle and places in the Puget sound, Washington.

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa was so great at my last minute accommodation. I have a loved one in the local hospital and needed a place to stay for a few days. The place is very charming, neat and tidy. There's a TV in each bedroom and its furnished with beautiful new furniture. The beds are super comfortable and the neighborhood is quiet. She provides lots of nice quality dishes and pots and pans so that I can save some money by fixing my meals. The outdoor space is peaceful and it is fully fenced for privacy. She was super considerate in providing snacks and a nice array of coffee. My only complaint is that the space isn't available long term. Even though she just listed it, it is sold out for almost the next two months. I had looked at other listings that nickel and dime you with fees and deposits. Lisa's place was straight forward, just the nightly fee and a hotel tax. I appreciate that!

From the Owner

This house is filled with charm in a quiet neighborhood. It is a great, central location.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

This is a great central location. We can get to a nice, sandy beach in 10 miles, a beautiful lush forest with hiking trails in 15 and are just a couple miles from your choice of a few lakes. We are within walking distance to the Sounder, which is a great commuter train and the commuter bus stop is at the end of our street. If you want something to occupy more of your time, I highly recommend spending a day in Seattle enjoying the Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and the waterfront. Another great day trip would be Mt Rainier. The picturesque drive up there is half the fun! We are also a few miles from Wild Waves. It is a very popular water park with tons of rides.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $200
Property Damage Protection $79
Tax Rate 13.5%

I don't charge a cleaning fee with the expectation that you will return the house reasonably tidy. This usually works out really well. If you don't wish to clean, we have a housekeeper available for $175 each visit, up to four hours. If the house is returned with damages, excessive amounts of cleaning or missing items may result in me keeping your deposit or making a claim against your travel insurance.

  • New September 2016. We just upgraded to a queen sized organic Nest Bedding mattress and pillows. They are wonderful!! The mattresses are all brand new, high end and comfortable. You'll feel like Goldilocks trying out all of the beds. Some are very firm memory foam and some are very soft pillow topped. They are all wonderful! We filled each room with freshly laundered luxurious linens.
