Quiet, peaceful, home 5 mi from State Capital, close to Ft Lewis/McChord freeway access. Full double bed and your own bathroom. Japanese maples in front and back yards. Non smoking home. Coffee and espresso bar with morning fruit tray and a smile. Relax and enjoy my home.
I'm a Nonna (Grandmother in Italian) and have a nice, quiet, relaxing home in Lacey, Washington just 5 mi from the State Capital in Olympia, or downtown Olympia, and conveniently located if you need to reach Joint Base Ft. Lewis/McChord (JBLM). (Home is just 2 miles off Interstate 5 freeway N or S. Use Martin Way exit 109.) House has WiFi.
I love japanese maples so the home, front and back, has quite a few. They are most colorful in spring and fall. You can relax on back deck with coffee or wine/cheese, in the side yard, or out front under a Moonfire maple. You can walk right out the front door and take a nice morning or evening walk or bike down the Chehalis Western Trail which is asphalted and safe.
Boat Marina with scenic walk and artwork, Local Farmers Market (Thurs-Sun), and downtown Olympia are 10 min by car. Cutter’s Point Coffee House with its cozy fireplace atmosphere is walking distance from home. Our beautiful volcanoes Mt Rainier and Mount Saint Helen’s are both day trips from here. On a clear day Mt. Rainier can be seen from city streets in Lacey or Olympia.
Standard comfortable full double bed (54 in x 75 in) in private hosted home. Non-smoking home indoors or out. Closet for suitcase, hanging clothes. Use of your own bathroom with shower, tub, and big, clean, fluffy towels and all amenities (toiletries) provided, including hairdryer. Morning coffee and espresso, or a variety of teas, and a seasonal fruit tray with a bagel provided. In winter I set up a ‘hot chocolate bar’ for fun. You may bring food and cook in my home; but if you do your own cooking, you do your own clean-up and get everything into the dishwasher. Grocery just 1 mile away. Home is WiFi connected and you are welcome to relax and use living area spaces, tv, family room, front room, and kitchen, all outside seating areas. IF you are traveling with a 3rd person 6 yrs and up and need a twin bed, there is a 2nd bedroom you can book separately.
Seattle airport is 1.15 min away and shuttle service to Lacey is available through the Capital Aeroporter. The Amtrak train station is 5 miles or 12 min from my home with overnight parking available. You can ‘hop the train’ for a day to Portland, Vancouver, Seattle or many other places.
I can be your friendly, conversational host or just leave you alone, whichever works best for you. This home is 'people friendly' which means non-biased toward race, age, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
Please note: If you're new to Airbnb, the website does not allow you to access my direct email address or phone number until AFTER you have booked. You can ASK me a question PRIOR to booking though by hitting the CONTACT button under my photo. At that time you will be able to contact me directly and we can discuss any additional details you would like me to know and I can answer any questions you have. It's easy!
Booking at my place requires your Airbnb verifications be complete, so if you're brand new, make sure you complete all of the Airbnb photo, driver's license or passport, etc. that are required. It's easy, fast and safe, but requires more than just an email address and phone number. Go to www.airbnb.com/verify and follow instructions. Verification makes Airbnb a safer community for all of us, hosts and guests.
Hope to meet you!
Very safe and quiet, no traffic or city noise. No barking dogs.
I love my Airbnb guests, they've all been nice, courteous, respectful, kind. If you are new to Airbnb, please note that the reservation for a room does not include bringing anyone in who was not included in the original reservation information supplied to your host (i.e. no overnight guests you bring home to stay with you in your room.) I'm an early riser and will have your coffee on, and I go to bed at 10 pm. Quiet rules after 10 pm. Thanks for understanding.
First off, Cameron was quick to respond to my questions beforehand, and she gave me clear directions to her place. Once I got there, Cameron and Jackson were the most gracious hosts - I really felt at home! Dinner and breakfast were delicious, and I had so much fun discussing birds, nature, science, math and so much more! Cameron is a wealth of knowledge, and she was kind enough to take some of her time to chat with me about my choices to move to Seattle. At the same time, I got all the privacy I needed in my room!
Not only did I have a pleasant stay, I think I left feeling much smarter than I arrived!
Cameron and grandson/co-host Jackson are exemplary hosts and cool people! Cameron went out of her way to make me comfortable, offering breakfast each day and she even invited me to join her for dinner one evening. The bed and bath were super clean and well appointed. Snacks and stuff in the fridge were available. There was great communication and she had good recommendations for places to eat when I was out. Really nice folks!
Cameron is the perfect host. She immediately made me feel right at home. It was relaxing to chat with her while coming and going each day, and I'm only sorry I didn't have more time to enjoy the yummy fruit and coffee she put out each morning. The bed is comfortable, the bedroom cozy, the neighborhood really peaceful, and the house ideally situated for getting around Lacey and travelling quickly to Olympia. It was a real pleasure to stay with Cameron .
Cameron was lovely! She gave excellent directions on how to get to her home and welcomed me like I was family with wonderful food and wine. I was in town for a job interview and found the relaxing environment to be exactly what I needed to wind down after the long drive. Cameron was prepared to send me out on adventures to the Sunday Farmer's Market but as I wanted to veg out before my big day, she invited me to enjoy some Sunday evening television and cookies with her instead. I would recommend a stay with Cameron to any of my friends visiting Olympia!
Omg! We were pampered. This has been our best airbnb experience. Everything about the room was perfect. We had a great day and we wish we stayed there more.
My wife & I were very thankful when Cameron graciously accepted our last minute booking and late arrival. We were warmly greeted and had a wonderful visit before retiring for the night. The description of her accommodations and previous reviews were accurate and helpful in selecting Cameron's home for our brief stay. The bed was comfortable and my wife & I had a very restful night's sleep. This was only our second Airbnb experience and Cameron helped make our stay both comfortable and educational. I would not hesitate to give my highest recommendation to anyone considering staying in her home. Thank you Cameron for a wonderful stay.
