Larry's place is a gem! It looked really cute on the listing, but was even better in person! It's the second story of his house and has its own entrance, porch, and balcony. There was plenty of room in the apartment for my husband and me to spread out, with a spacious bedroom and bathroom, well-stocked kitchen open to the living room, and even a nook with a washer and dryer. He left us goodies for our arrival like fruit, wine, ice cream, muffins...we couldn't eat it all but it was such a nice gesture :) The house is well kept, stylish, and surrounded by pretty trees outside the windows. I didn't feel like there was much noise coming from the road below, but we used the white noise machine anyway since we found it relaxing. It's in a really central location - we were able to walk downtown and to the capitol from the house. Check in and check out was a breeze. We ran into Larry outside one day and he was super friendly and great to chat with. He gave us a recommendation for our anniversary dinner, which turned out to be wonderful (Hearthfire Grill on the water). We'll definitely try to stay here again if we come back to Olympia! Thank you Larry & Kathy:)

A great stay! The apartment is stylish, very clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Very convenient location near downtown. Responsive hosts but not intrusive. We will return if in the area!

This place is perfect! The décor is fabulous, the couch is fantastic for lounging around in the morning, and the bed is so comfortable my husband actually slept in. Larry and Kathy were gracious hosts, providing anything and everything I could want. And the location is great. Very easy to get to and close to downtown and the capital building. I would stay here again and again.

Beautifully decorated, easy check-in, pleasant place to stay near the state capitol. Muffins, blueberries and other goodies were an unexpected treat. The AC in the bedroom was really appreciated during the unusually warm weather when we visited.

Wonderful, beautifully appointed apartment. I stayed here after returning from a month in Europe and worried a bit about recovering from jet lag "on the road." With this place, I need not have worried at all! The bed is extremely comfortable. The space is welcoming and calming. Every where you look is aesthetically pleasing. All of this made made it easy to work during the day (on a co-writing project) and sleep well at night.I would stay here again. Many, many times. Thank you both for letting me stay in your apartment. Take care.

There are actually 3 of us: myself in the all-dressed-up-stuffy photo, my wife, Kathy, whose photo you would like much more than mine, and our dog, Chevy, who keeps a watchful eye on the place. We live on the main floor and we welcome you to stay in our upstairs apartment.
