Great access, just five minutes off I-5 exit 111, and all shopping and services, yet feels like you're in the San Juans! Fifteen minutes to downtown Olympia, Farmer's Market, yacht harbor.
We had a very nice stay. The place is great.
My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at this lovely place. Breathtaking view with many places to sit and relax. We thoroughly enjoyed the close access to the ocean, kayaks, BBQ, and surrounding environment. Barbara and Dick were so welcoming and organized. Highly recommend the stay here in olympia.
From the moment I pulled into the driveway...I knew this was a very special place. I feel so fortunate to have been able to stay here. Barbara and Dick were truly wonderful hosts...they have created a magical place. I felt safe, comfortable and did not want to leave! The view is incredible...the beach itself is lovely...their grounds are gorgeous! The cottage is sweet and rustic with everything you need...including a gas stove for cooking in. Thank you for just the best visit...I can't wait to come back!
It was a complete pleasure to host Donna at Puget View Cottage. And thank you Donna, for such a lovely review. And to all hosts---you will likely never have a tidier guest than Donna!
Blessings to you Donna. Do come back!

Puget View Cottage, Olympia WA
My husband and I needed a getaway from the SF Bay Area and this was the perfect place to relax.
The cottage is waterfront, all we had to do is hike down a small path to get to the water. There are kayaks and a fire pit to enjoy too! Right along water, we ran into Tolmie State Park and continued hiking.
One day we ventured off into Tumwater and Downtown but we really should have stayed put because there wasn't anything that compared to the beauty and tranquility of this beach cottage.
Barbara and Dick were very pleasant and gave us our privacy. Thoughtful, Dick knew how much I loved Bald Eagles so he knocked on the door to let me know there was one in the tree above! Thank you Dick:)
It was so relaxing,beautiful and quaint that my aunt plans on staying there when she visits her daughter again.
Lastly, there are doors that lead to the deck from the living room and bedroom! This was the perfect place to drink wine,host a small dinner and play scrabble! And we did!
Here are some other details;
-Suitable for no more than 3 adults
-Privacy doors for the living room and bedroom (my aunt stayed in the livingroom and had complete privacy)
We'll be back! Rate 10+

We felt very welcome and the cabin was inviting. We loved kayaking!
We had a spectacular weekend at Barbara and Dick's beach cottage! It was as quaint, cozy, and relaxing as we had hoped. The cottage was very clean and the information that the Yunkers left us was helpful. The yard was so well cared for and we were pleasantly surprised that we had an even better view than we had expected. When looking out the window toward the sound the water view is completely unobstructed. The state park was just a couple minutes walk away. There we could enjoy walking on the beach, trail running, or enjoying the view. Additionally, the proximity to downtown Olympia was just right for us. We were far enough away that we felt we were in a relaxing, remote environment...yet close enough that we could access it quickly! We had a wonderful weekend and would definitely recommend this home!
About the Host, Barbara And Dick
Welcome to Puget View! We live in the log house that shares the property with the cottage and Brittany's Bayside Bungalow, also listed on this site. (We're Brittany's parents :) We love this special, beautiful place and look forward to sharing it with you. We've hosted many wonderful guests over the years, but are new to Airbnb.
Barb's happy when she's expressing her inner artist. Dick, an OSU forester, will help you identify any tree you have a question about. Together, our interests are outdoor-adventure oriented---whether it's bicycling across the country, summiting a NW peak, Kili, or Fuji. Over the last two years we've done a lot of walking/long distance hiking in Great Britain, Europe, Africa, Nepal, Asia. Recuperating now from 250 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail/John Muir Trail in High Sierras---and home to stay. Yay! We look forward to meeting you and providing a beautiful, inspiring place for you to enjoy.
Birdlife, rainforest walks, oystering (with license :) Kids will love the sandy beach on far side of cove. Public buoys can provide moorage for cottage guests.
Nice course between Tolmie and I-5. Also called The Golf Course at Hawks Prairie. It's next to Jubilee development.
Largest bead showroom in the world.
Huge subs, popular with locals.
Rent an aluminum skiff or fancier runabout. "Sling" style boat launch.
Popular watering hole, especially the cantina.
Awesome new pier extends several miles out over the delta, especially nice at high tide. Flat and easy, good for all ages.
Most popular pub around. Very popular sports hangout. Family friendly.
Think Disneyland for sporting goods.
Awesome decor and always astounding food.
If you need it, it's here.
If you have to have sushi, this is where you go.
This little place has been around a long time---for good reason. Still the best teriyaki, hands down.
Dick's early morning hangout.
