Diane is a wonderful host. Her home is immaculate and and beautiful, as is her garden. The bed was comfy, which is important to me as I'm older and have back issues. Diane was easy to be around and I had all my questions answered. I would definitely stay here again.

The room in Diane's home was everything I needed, and more. I greatly appreciated the immaculate cleanliness of the room and the shared bathroom (and the house overall!). I was very comfortable and Diane was a pleasure to interact with. The guests in the other room were a couple traveling from Switzerland, who were very kind and respectful of the shared space. I normally book entire homes through airbnb; this is the first time I have booked a room in someone's house. The glowing reviews about Diane's place persuaded me to stay here, and I am so happy with my decision. It was the perfect home away from home I needed in Olympia. Also note, this is a lovely, well-situated neighborhood in town.

Diane is an absolute gem and a superb Superhost. She was so delightful and calming to be around & her home was fantastically super cozy and felt like such a warm home to rest your head and relax :) She also is so generous and giving, going above and beyond : she helped us map our Hoh rainforest trip and even let me borrow a meditation cushion and blanket for a workshop. Thank you Diane for the absolutely coziest bed and beautifully landscaped flowery front yard to enjoy while on the grand front porch !!! You and your house are gems :)
