We will interact as much or as little as guests prefer during their stay, so if you are feeling social and wish to share a meal next to the fire let us know!

I had a lovely time at The Hideaway! Julie was a stellar host, super friendly, stocked the place with everything we could want, and the location was magnificent. Would love to stay again!

The Hideaway Loft is a perfect name for this getaway. It is in a rural location, but surprisingly close to Olympia by highway 101. The well stocked fridge and well appointed kitchen were a welcome surprise. Despite wintery weather, the Loft was warm and comfortable. The space is truly well thought out with forest views from large picture windows. The custom parquet floor is a work of are. The short gravel surfaced access road gets a bit steep in a couple places. Overall, it was a perfect retreat for the NYE holiday.

We had a terrific time at this awesome Hideaway. The place is beautiful and has pretty much every amenity you might need on your trip. Everything is super clean, well placed and very calming. Great selection of CDs, books and a beautiful pool table. Explore the outdoors as it is quite stunning, feels like you are miles and miles away from civilization. Put on some Pink Floyd and relax and let all of life's worries and tasks disappear. Definitely one of our favorite Airbnbs we have stayed at. Julie is a terrific host and easy to communicate with. If we could give more than 5 stars we would. Make sure you print out the specific directions or have them handy on your phone.

One of the best airbnb places I've ever stayed in. 5 stars across the board. Beautiful location in the woods, but 15 minutes from downtown Olympia. Julie was very helpful and accommodating with supreme attention to detail. The space and the host exceeded my expectations in every category.

The Hideaway is amazing! We arrived a few hours after we originally thought we might but Julie was incredibly accommodating and welcomed us warmly. The Hideaway itself is in a truly beautiful location and if there is one thing I noticed more than anything it was attention to detail. In the bathroom, shampoo, conditioner, and all sorts of medicine cabinet items were stocked, as well as massage and essential oils. Wonderful cookware, a well stocked pantry, and some bonus items in the fridge made cooking and exploring the kitchen a delightful experience. The bed and couches were SUPER comfortable, and the maps/brochures/lists of restaurants in a very well organized binder were much appreciated. All in all, this is the nicest Airbnb I've ever stayed in and we were left wanting nothing. I'm blown away by the completeness of a living experience they have created in their perfect Hideaway. Thank you Julie!
