Tacoma's Bed & Breakfast Gem
My stay at The Villa was wonderful...proprietors Martin & Toni Savol were charming, hospitable, informative, and so very accommodating. Each of the guest rooms is named for a city in Italy, and I stayed in Napoli. All of the rooms have their own bathroom, which you don't often find with bed & breakfast establishments. The room was quite comfortable and tastefully appointed, with television and wifi access. The spacious bathroom was lovely with its black and white tiling and ample towels. The downstairs main living room features several chairs, divans and an ottoman on which to lounge while watching wide-screen television or enjoying a cup of locally roasted coffee in front of the fire. There's also a grand piano, if you happen to play. The kitchen area includes an alcove for guests to make coffee or tea, and a variety of flavored syrups are offered should you wish to make a treat of your beverage. Breakfast the next morning was served in a lovely sun room patio area, and consisted of coffee, orange juice, Greek yogurt with honey and fresh fruit (sliced pears, mixed berries & papaya), bread pudding-style French toast and ham. Toni offered eggs, but I had more than enough to enjoy. I look forward to experiencing the property and its owners again soon, and to introducing others to it.
