This bright little studio is situated behind the main house. It is a private space with your own entrance, a yard with herbs, fruit, nut trees, and flowers. A 15 minute walk or a 3min. bike ride to the downtown core of Olympia, the waterfront, farmers market, and the Woodland trail that provides miles of biking and walking. The bus is one block away. The studio has a shower and bathroom, full size bed, kitchen and a small loft, accessible by a vertical ladder, with another full size mattress.
Our Little House in the Backyard is a cozy, private space surrounded by trees. It is a small studio that has all you need. The loft upstairs can be fun for kids, or adults who enjoy the memories of climbing a ladder to a fun hide-away. (Please note that it is a true ladder, and requires full mobility and coordination.) In addition to the full size bed on the main floor, there is another full size mattress in the loft and can sleep two people. Though four people could fit, it is a small studio space and is most comfortable for one or two people.
Peruse the books on the bookshelf, make yourself a cup of the tea or coffee we provide, enjoy a glass of something stronger as you unwind from a busy day or plan your adventures in and around Olympia.
The Little House is on a side yard, with small front porch. You can't see the main house from your place, so it really feels like it's all your own. Long term renters are able to use laundry facilities by arrangement.
Interaction with guests
We work to make ourselves as available as needed, and are happy to answer questions about activities and places in Olympia and its surroundings. But, as there is a key safe that allows you to arrive whenever is convenient for you, you can have as little contact with us as you like.
We live just a few blocks down the street. Our friends rent the main house and are very friendly and enjoy meeting our Airbnb guests. If you have any questions or need anything, just text us or send a message. We are close by and unless we are at work or out of town, we can be there within a few minutes.

Please treat our place as you would treat your own home.
Let us know if you have any questions, we are happy to help!
