“We’ll miss walking around the neighborhood and seeing peek-a-boo views of the Puget Sound and Mount Rainier, the gorgeous sunsets from the kitchen window, and the full morning sun on the deck.”

“We’ve really enjoyed the yard for its Cherry tree, rosemary, and 4 wooden beds that have grown delicious zucchini, tomatoes, and herbs.”

“We’ve enjoyed this location for the small intimate coffee shop, bars, restaurants, and grocery stores within walking distance. But also the busy and liveliness of Point Ruston just down the hill. Gorgeous variety in point defiance with rose gardens, newly renovated Owens Beach, Wilson Bridge walkway, and Vashon Ferry nearby. So many accessible activities for kids and adults. Vassault park with many sports and a great children’s playground. Quick and simple drive to highway 16.”

“When dining out nearby we love to go to Coles Bar & Grill in Ruston, which is a full-service bar that allows children and serves breakfast on the weekends - they have amazing French toast! The House Favorite and the coffee Zaun drive-thru is also worth the wait. Making the quick trip across Pearl Street to the Delightful Neighborhood Market for so many local business treasures is always fun and with friendly service.”


The ever-developing Point Ruston has shopping & dining & entertainment! WildFin American Grill, Jewel Box Cafe, Farrelli’s Pizza, Stack 571, Ice Cream Social, and live music in the summer! Enjoy the popular trail with grandiose views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains with even better views at the top of the Dune Peninsula! 11 acres of landscaped park property on the breakwater peninsula surrounding the Tacoma Yacht Club and connecting to the Point Defiance Park via the Wilson Way Bridge.

Just opened to the public - get out and support local businesses at the Public Market. 30,000 sq ft of indoor shopping and dining.
