House in University Place, USA

Our home is located in the state of Washington, just 36mi (60km) south of Seattle and 6mi (10km) from downtown Tacoma (Washington's second largest city).

The region is famous for its majestic mountains (particularly Mt. Rainier and the Olympic mountains) and old growth forests. If you enjoy outdoor activities, this is the place to be. During the winter months, the region has some of the best skiing & snowboarding in the world at Crystal Mountain, Snoqualmie Pass, and Snow Summit. and we are a convenient day trip away from Whistler/Blackcomb in British Columbia, Canada.
If you are a fan of the book and movie "Twilight", we are approximately 2.5 hours from Forks, Washington. We recommend driving through it (but not stopping) on a visit to the Olympic National Park Rainforest to see the giant old growth trees.
Tacoma offers many arts and cultural activities including the Museum of Glass (featuring the work of Dale Chihuly), the Tacoma Art Museum, and the Washington Natural History Museum (all within walking distance of each other). Tacoma also has many wonderful restaurants featuring the cuisines of many different cultures throughout the world.  Public transportation from Tacoma to Seattle is plentiful and convenient.
Our home is 1,900 square feet (3,170 square meters)with three bedrooms. The master bedroom contains a king size bed, one bedroom has a full size bed, and another bedroom has a bunk bed. The upstairs has a couch that folds out to a bed. We have two boys ages 6 and 10 years, so there are many toys for your children to enjoy.
There are many parks and playgrounds located within walking distance from our home.  In particular, it is a pleasant 1mi (1.6km) walk to the beautiful Chambers Bay Golf Course (site of the 2010 US Amateur and 2015 US Open). Chambers Bay is surrounded by a walking trail that offers breathtaking views of the Puget Sound (Washington's inland sea).
