The Union Place is a small sturdy house, built in the 30's with spacious rooms and lots of built in charm. The Union Place has only one official bedroom with a queen size bed. But there's a pull out, full size bed in the Media Room which could hold another person or two. There are sliding french doors that can close off the Media Room and dark curtains to pull across them for privacy. The large flat screen TV comes complete with full cable access, On Demand, Netflix and more. There are Bose speakers you can hook your iPod up to. Wireless Internet? But of course! There's even a little office corner where you can work.
The Kitchen is our favorite part. It's very large for such a small house, meaning you won't be alone when you're cooking! It's surrounded by dark tile with glass accents. All the small appliances you might need are there, as well as stainless steel cookware, plenty of dishes and fine glassware. Speaking of glass, the owner's son is a glass blowing artist so there are several of his pieces sprinkled into the décor.
We think you'll like the Union Place and enjoy the contentment of having your own house with the convenience of being downtown. There's a sweet little outside courtyard with a table and chairs so you can hang outside, too.
You'll enjoy a short walk to both the Capitol Campus and the Downtown District. There's a bus line, too. The house is amazingly quiet considering the access to services.
We really enjoyed staying at the Bamboo Bungalow. It was comfortable, clean and cozy. This is the first Airbnb rental where we have found more than the minimum number of towels! The neighborhood was quiet and we were just a short walk to the San Francisco Street Bakery. We would definitely stay again on our next visit to Olympia.
Karen was very communicative and the place was darling and comfy. The only concern was that I had to call to turn the hot water on but considering this was Thanksgiving she was quick to give directions over the phone. I plan on using her lovely bamboo bungalow again soon.
