This is an historic neighborhood, with wonderful older homes, kids in the street, very peaceful area above Capitol Lake, and a stone's throw from the Capitol and Legislature.
Very convenient transit
There is no kitchen, only a microwave to warm things, and a fridge. There is no cooking allowed, so those interested in longer stays should realize they will be eating out, or out of the fridge and microwave. There is no dish-washing capacity except in the bathroom. There is a washer and dryer available in the basement.
We are long time Olympia residents, and can guide you to the best restaurants and places to visit, and can help with anything else you may need.
Gary's place was exactly as advertised, and it suited my needs perfectly. The neighborhood is beautiful with easy access to anywhere in Olympia. I arrived after a long day of driving, and the complimentary bottle of wine was very welcome. My schedule while I was there was fairly erratic, and I was in and out at odd times, so Gary and I never met in person. I'm looking forward to meeting him next time I'm in Olympia. I plan to stay at Gary's again.
This was great for our needs. Close to the i5, and the children museum. Room was easy to make toddler proof, and the small couch was big enough for my 5 year old. Fresh fruit and very good yogurt. Would stay here again.
When we arrived there was fresh fruit, yogurt, and a nice bottle of wine. The apartment was cozy, clean, and just what we needed. It's close to town, very convenient. Gary and Ruby left a nice list of restaurants and sites in town. We were on the move a great deal visiting a son, but Gary was responsive to our messages and we felt welcome. We would book again for sure!
I needed a place quickly for a project and Gary's place was perfect! The bed is very comfortable. The place is very quiet. Gary has a left an Olympia field manual if you want to get around. Fish Tail Brewery was great! I had a great time. The place is very clean.
Gary and Ruby were very helpful and very nice. There was a fantastic bottle of wine waiting for me, as well as coffee (and cream for the coffee) and lots of fruit and yoghurt. The bed was very comfortable, and I loved the furnishings and the tub.
They provided a very relaxing place to stay at a very stressful time. My thanks!
I loved staying here! It was extremely comfortable, especially the bed, and very homey and welcoming. I felt very safe. There is a lot of room, and the tub is extra large for soaking. Gary communicated with me about arrival particulars, so I was confident about getting in. Everything was so clean and orderly with all needs met, coffee and snacks stocked. The grounds and main house were beautiful with a view of the lake. I highly recommend this location next to the capitol, near town, and easy access to the freeway. I was totally happy with my choice of a place to stay during my visit to beautiful Olympia.
