The Milo Room is perfect for traveling nurses, prospective UPS students and teachers, events at the Tacoma Dome, or those simply stopping in Tacoma while taking in the Pacific Northwest!
Welcome to the Balay ni Clarence, a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1921 Craftsman home in Tacoma’s historic North End. Our home is nestled on a quiet side street just a short 10 minute walk to the University of the Puget Sound (UPS) and local shops and restaurants (see our guidebook).
The Milo Room is located on the second floor, has a queen size bed (new Leesa mattress), deluxe linens, all-season comforter, four pillows, towels, bedroom slippers, a bath robe, basic toiletries, a closet, dresser, luggage rack, television with Netflix, Amazon Prime (feel free to use the HDMI cable on your laptop if you'd like) high-speed wireless internet, and a small laptop table and chair if you want to work in the privacy of your room.
Help yourself to our kitchen that is loaded with coffee, tea, fruits and snacks, cereal and oatmeal, or join us for a meal and tell us how your trip is going. If you need to do a refit during your journey, feel free to use our washer and dryer. We also provide an iron and ironing board for that special occasion or job interview. We also have a wireless scanner/printer and some office supplies you're welcome to use.
Guests have access to their bedroom, the bathroom on the second floor, the kitchen, dining room, laundry, and back yard. This historic home doesn't have a garage. Parking is on the street in front of the house which is where we park and have never had an issue.
Interaction with guests
We love meeting new people and have had some great Airbnb adventures over the years as guests. But, we respect your time and privacy and will accommodate the level of interaction you prefer. If we are not around, we are only a phone call away if you need anything.
Other things to note
Before your arrival, we’ll contact you with instructions and to see if you need any help or make recommendations. 99% of the time one of us will be there to welcome you. If we can’t, we’ll make sure you have everything you need to check in and make yourselves comfortable.
- Please leave the bathroom tidy for the next person with toilet seat/lid down.
Islay Scotches, fine NW beers, coffee, pork, crab, and cooking - it's all about fine food and friends. In between we love to ride our bicycles, brew beers, and anything that involves being outside in the sun :)
