Our interaction can be minimal or moderate, whichever you prefer during your stay.
Generally this is a quiet neighborhood given its proximity to downtown Olympia. Although we are located in a capitol city, it has a small town feel with small shops and a nice downtown core of options for visitors. For those who like the more commercial aspects of life, the west side holds all the retail options you would need.
1 block from public transit stop, with a major transfer station only 10 blocks away. I know my way around the area and Washington and can provide recommendations and options during your stay.

Jeffrey is a friendly and very helpful host. Quiet room, comfortable bed, large private bathroom. The house has excellent access to downtown and highway.
Jeff was a gracious host and his home was very comfortable. He thought about all the details for accommodating his guests. He had snacks set out, bottles of water, and notes for how to turn on the TV and access wifi. I will stay here again next time I'm in Olympia.
This was one of my best Airbnb experiences. Jeffrey was a warm host and made me feel right at home. The room was just as it was described. And yes, its quiet and the bed is super comfortable. Its an ideal location for easy access to downtown Olympia and his house is nestled in a quiet neighborhood. I had a wonderful stay and would love to return.
Thanks for the kind words Todd. I hope you'll get the chance to come back and visit again. And make to tell your wife that if she wants to come down from Seattle to visit your daughter, she would be welcomed here as well. I'm sure we can work out a special accommodation for her.
Jeffrey's house and room were a perfect place to stay while in Olympia. I was so close to everything, making it easy to explore the area even though I was in town for work. Jeffrey also provided some great recommendations for stores and places to go. The room was comfortable and quiet and the private bathroom was also excellent. Jeffrey was an excellent host and I enjoyed sharing breakfast and coffee with him on my last day. Would definitely recommend staying here!
I travel at least 1 week out of every month on business and this was by far my best traveling/stay experience. Jeffrey is amazing! He knows Olympia inside and out, always has great suggestions on where to go and what to do, and makes his guests feel very welcome and comfortable - the room is private and also a private bathroom for his guests. He makes coffee every morning and sets out water bottles in the room for you etc. If you want hotel type accommodation without the hassle and hotel prices, stay here. I will never book another hotel room again if im anywhere near this area.
Thank you Jeffrey!
