About this listing

This listing is for bedroom #4, the basement guest suite. It's nice and roomy, although you have to go up one floor to the nearest bathroom. You have a separate entrance.
You'll love this location! Walk just 3 blocks to the Washington State Capitol and less than a mile to downtown where there are many good restaurants, live theaters, a performing arts center, a movie theater, a farmers' market, a children's museum, and more. Grocery stores also within walking distance. Free shuttle to downtown!

The space

Our 1907 house is an Olympia Heritage Site. It has 3 floors plus a basement, a separate garage, and is surrounded by small perennial gardens. The foursquare layout is open and flowing. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on the second floor, a top-floor bonus space, a basement rec room/guest room, office, and laundry.

Guest access

Your bedroom is in the basement and you'll share the main floor and 2nd floor bathrooms with any other renters. You can access the basement through a separate entrance or through the kitchen. Note that the shared laundry is in the basement so we are sometimes down there; that area is separated from the rental area by a curtain. We don't need to go through your area to get to the laundry.
You are welcome to use the main floor (kitchen, living, dining, full bath), basement laundry facilities, front porch, and back patio.

Interaction with guests

One of us will be home to greet you, and we can check in on schedules then. We are usually in and out during the day and evening. We look forward to hearing about your trip, and will be happy to help plan any excursions you have in mind. We respect your privacy, and will stay out of your way unless you need us.

Other things to note

We are happy to provide breakfast foods such as muffins or bagels, yogurt, fruit, coffee and tea. There are several great breakfast spots within walking distance.

Good basic, clean space with all the amenities you might need and a gracious, accommodating host. Especially good during any hot spells of weather as the space downstairs stays cool. Requires some interaction with the host should you want access to the various amenities so not really suitable for someone expecting a private space. Nice selection of light breakfast options from cereal, non-diary milk beverages, muffins, bread and coffees. Relaxing deck and patio spaces in peaceful garden surroundings to socialize, read or just chill.

An amazing stay! Great location, beautiful house, and nice host. 10 minute walk to downtown; 5 minute walk to the capitol. With the affordable price, it's a bargain.
