We are artists and work from home. Maureen is a potter and I am a canine herbalist. We give guests their privacy and you choose how much interaction you want with us.

The neighborhood

Our house is located on a private, dead end street.

Our location feels very secluded. We are on the ocean bay inlet and you will see hawks, eagles, herons, ducks, geese, and many song birds. We are surrounded by artists and trees.

Your Host



Olympia, Washington, United States · Joined in June 2011

We try to stay via Airbnb whenever we travel. Maureen and I are crafters and work from home. I am a canine herbalist and Maureen is a potter. We love meeting new people and just enjoying life. We have a peaceful home and look forward to sharing it.

Maureen and I travel to Ireland whenever we can, are avid readers, love Tolkien, adore the birds here on the property and love living on the ocean. Olympia is a perfect city as far as we are concerned and we will probably live here the rest of our lives. I love to cook and bake and making things in general is where we find peace.

My favorite place in the house is the corner desk in front of the double patio doors. Maureen's is her pottery studio.

We have three dogs - two sweet pugs and a mix. Bones is our 3-legged cat and he is magnificent.
