My house is in a great location in downtown (east side) Olympia and only 5 blocks from Capitol complex and is near downtown shopping and restaurants. I am 2 blocks from Bud Bay Inlet - perfect for business or pleasure ~ also an excellent location for a state rep. or lobbyist during legislative sessions.

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 including Capital Mall, Olive Garden, Applebees, Red Robin...etc.
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.

Single male semi-retired at times, who loves to travel and meet people. I'm easy going and generally go out of my way to make people feel welcome. I am respectful of your privacy and take my cues for interaction from you while you're here. I've made many friends thru this service and have had many repeat clients stay with me over the last few years. Welcome to my home.
