This cozy 1920's home is tucked away in the historic South Capitol Neighborhood of Olympia. Located just minutes away from the Capitol Campus, it's a great place to stay if you're looking to do business in the area or visit downtown Olympia.
*Please make sure you have a profile picture and some information about who you are. I will not accept people without a picture.
It is a private bedroom in an attic space connected to a separate room. The space has a queen sized bed with the option of an added twin-sized futon mattress for one more guest. If you have a hard time climbing up and down please do not book this space, as you need to climb up the loft ladder to get into the room (see pictures). The ceiling is also quite low, although guests have not listed this as too much of an inconvenience.
We DO NOT do monthly rentals. The longest would be around one week. Exceptions can be made, however we're offering more short-term accommodations and we like a few days notice before accepting guests. Last minute does not work well for us. We do not provide food.
Wireless, keyless entry, bus stops around the block, fridge space, kitchen use, fresh fruit in the summer right off the trees and vines!
Interaction with Guests
Depends on the guest! During the week very little due to working hours, but weekends are flexible. We have been known to have coffee and go to shows with some of our guests.
We live right across the street from a school which has walking paths and areas for dogs to run. Across the street at night has a view of the Capitol all lit up from your window (well, the top anyway). The area is family friendly and within walking distance is Olympia Coffee Roasters, Vic's Pizzeria, Frog Pond convenient store, and a great little market called Spud's. During the summer the yard has some fruit trees and grape vines! If you're really ambitious you can take a walking tour to see the historic homes in the area or visit the Capitol's museum.
It is located within walking distance to the bus stop. It's about a 25-30 minute walk to downtown Olympia. There is a parking lot and street parking for your car.
Other Things to Note
There are 2 VERY SOCIAL cats in the house, one who climbs up the ladder. Duncan may want to sleep with you (paw on the face means "lift the covers up!"). There is a dog as well, a blue heeler names Sadie, and she can be a bit neurotic before warming up to you. If you have a dog phobia, please don't stay here (she has never hurt anyone, she is just weary of strangers). The first Mondays of the month will be a bit noisy around here as we host the Olympia Old Time jam from 7-10 pm. Bring an instrument if you'd like!
Monday through Friday, quiet after 11pm. We ask that guests be in before 11pm on the weeknights to be sensitive for our work schedules. Respecting our animals and space as their own. Visiting pets are negotiable. Cook and supply your food, and clean up after yourself.
The host did make me feel at home. The room is up a ladder, which I did know about. Bed was very comfortable.
We had a wonderful visit at Amber and Bradley's. Such a cute and cosy space with a very comfortable bed. We were very grateful that they we open to having our dog come along and there was a great off leash park across the street. Amber gave us awesome info about Olympia and lent us her dog hiking books and was just generally warm, friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend. Thanks again for everything!!
Great neighborhood. Great hosts and great pets. Room could be a little hard to access if you have mobility issues but it was just what I needed. Thank you, Amber!
A totally beautiful place! Amber and Bradley are sweeties, as are their dog and two cats! We couldn't have had a better time.
Our overnight stay with Amber and Bradley was perfect. Welcoming guests, warm house, friendly pets, extremely comfortable bed, clean amenities. Our only regret is that we didn't stay long enough for a jam session and/or an evening meal together. There house is a nice walk or short drive to the heart of Olympia. Perfectly comfortable stay!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Things I loved about the place: the precious ladder to our upstairs nook, the gentle animals, lovely outdoor areas and hammocks, friendly hosts, very comfortable bed and the nice price!
Hi there! My name is Amber and I live with my boyfriend Bradley, dog Sadie, and cats Duncan and Casey in a cute little house in Olympia. We're quirky 30(ish) professionals who like to play outside. I work as a psychotherapist with my own private practice in Olympia. For fun I like blues and fusion dancing, practicing the fiddle, hosting jams, remodeling homes, taking walks with the dog, reading, and traveling. I moved here from Chicago, Illinois, where I grew up.
Bradley works as a urban planner for the Dept of Transportation for the State of Washington. His life outside of work is fly fisher, hunter, and explorer of rivers. Be ready for the paraphernalia around the house. He is also a food lover, cook, and enjoys finding new and local music. He moved here from twin cities in Minnesota, where he grew up.
We've been hosting people for almost a year now, and so far have had really great experiences. We love meeting new people as well as supporting AirBnb to continue to grow!
