Welcome to "Penny lane"
Penny lane is a furnished private studio apartment in a secured building. There is a bed and a small desk in one room and a step up kitchen with everything you need for your basic cooking needs. THERE is NOT a sink in the bathroom only in the kitchen. I strongly point this out because even though it was ALWAYS in my listing a guest gave me a 3 star for this . I strive for perfection. 5 stars. If you want to cook a huge turkey dinner, contact me for extra pots and pans.
There is internet access and a T.V. with cable and Blue ray DVD payer. We have dvd's you can borrow downstairs . Come down and say hi !
There are 9 units upstairs two are ARBNB and the other 7 units are filled with long time tenants .We ask that you be considerate of your noise level on the other hand you are above a restaurant and a bar and it can be a bit boisterous.
This is a fun and lively neighborhood and you are within walking distance of some great restaurants and pubs. Also within walking distance is a Safeway , a post office and two major hospitals. Tacoma General and Saint Joseph. You are on a bus line. You are close to downtown where the art museums are located.
This is an inner city neighborhood and we experience inner city problems as all cities do. There may be an occasional panhandler etc. I try to be very honest about my location. On the plus side you are close to everything and get all the great things the inner city can bring.
The Tacoma dome is 2.5 miles away. The convention center is close.
You will have access to the main hall and your private apartment,with your own private kitchen and bathroom.
If you have a PET please converse with me as It may be possible with a non refundable deposit.
