Interaction with Guests
I do the majority of my work from my home office and will be at home much of the time. I do hold appointments here and do occasional work outside during the week so I'll be coming and going during your stay.
Our interaction can be minimal or moderate, whichever you prefer during your stay - I take my cue's from my guest.
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.

Jeff was an excellent host and I very much enjoyed staying at his place! The room was a perfect size for me, and I think it would be just fine for a couple as well. The room was well prepared and I had my own private bathroom at the front of the house. Jeff was extremely welcoming, provided me tons of information, and was a great person to chat with. I especially appreciated his flexibility, especially when I had to change my reservation and then check out late on my last day. He has extra toiletries in the bathroom and is happy to share some refrigerator space. His house is conveniently close to downtown Olympia, a 15 minute walk at most. I would definitely stay with Jeff if I came to Olympia again!
Jeffrey was very accommodating and helpful. Room was perfect for my needs and I felt very comfortable. I was able to get work done and have a comfy bed at night.
Jeffrey is the consummate host: kind and helpful! He was a great communicator from the start, which I really appreciate, and his home was exactly as he represented it. Jeffrey's home is comfortable and close to Downtown Olympia (i.e., walkable). I especially appreciated the comfortable bed, the great WIFI access, and the quiet. Jeffrey printed me a map of downtown Olympia and pointed at places I might like to visit, and he even let me do a load of laundry before I left for Portland. If you are looking for a relaxed, low-key, convenient space, you should definitely try this one. Thank you, Jeffrey! I had a great time in lovely Olympia.
Jeffrey is a welcoming host. I felt very comfortable with him. There was ample space in his refrigerator, and he provided coffee and hot water for tea. His house is neat and clean, and parking is very convenient.
Jeffrey is an excellent host and makes you feel very at home. He went above and beyond to make our stay great. The neighborhood is in a great location and is very nice and quiet. I would definitely stay here again!
Jeffrey is a friendly and very helpful host. Quiet room, comfortable bed, large private bathroom. The house has excellent access to downtown and highway.
