Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom In A Great Location! Perfect For Every Families Welcome!

Remodeled Craftsman house, old world charm with elegant modern interior in a quiet neighborhood. Private yard. Walking distance to Downtown Olympia. Close drive to Evergreen State College. Co-op/health food store one block away.

Home features hardwood floors, tile bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, new cozy queen beds, large dining area, and a comfortable spacious living room.Up a spiral staircase in the hallway there is a large kid room with bean bags, games, two twin beds and plenty of room for playing.

We love the quiet, well established neighborhood filled with old beautiful homes. We also love the Olympia Coffee Roasters just a couple blocks away, and we enjoy the West side co-op just down the street for getting great healthy food (2 blocks away).

The home is at the head of the Garfield nature trail. It is a nature trail that meanders throughout a five-acre ravine from West Bay Drive to North Rogers Street. It is a nice way to head downtown!

From the little yellow house, it is awesome to walk in to the city center and have dinner or breakfast, then after to stroll around Capitol Lake. You can visit the art galleries, the shops, and walk along the bay.

If you need to shop or want to see a movie, we are less than a mile from the Westfield Mall. This is a great home in a great location.

We are happy to help you enjoy your stay in Olympia and are available via phone/email for questions, or help, but we are not on premises.

You have the entire home, with private yard, and parking.

Bus lines are nearby and there is free parking in the back of the home, convenient and off street.

About Ahtumn Delacroix

We are a growing family, that loves to travel...We like to have the experience, when traveling, that has a more comfortable, and more local feel than a hotel. That has lead us to many VRBO properties, and even more memories made.

Ahtumn Delacroix purchased this house in 2013

Why Ahtumn Delacroix chose Olympia

We found this home and bought it to resell, but while remodeling, we fell in love with the home, and its character, not to mention the location! We then decided to keep it as an investment, and a vacation spot for when in the sweet Olympia area.

Home away from home, peaceful as the country, yet super convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great house, great host! Less than a block from a wooded nature trail to the beach, and less than a block from a bus stop - this is Olympia at its best. Also easy walking to the Olympia Food Co-op, Hart's Mesa restaurant, and Eagan's for burgers and shakes. It is clear to us that the host has taken great care to make this a welcoming and comfortable place, and for a few summers now for us it has been just the right 'home base' from which to visit different family around town. Highly recommend!

Quiet Neighborhood House Perfect for an Olympia Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Very well appointed house with extremely comfortable beds and well remodeled. It is close to the waterfront and downtown Olympia, and was perfect for 4 adults, although the upstairs is suited to children with plenty of room to play, and a separate play room for kids to let their imaginations take wing. Only issue was that the cable would not work, but there were enough movies to keep us entertained

Perfect home away.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to call home for our short trip to Olympia. Kitchen was great. Lovely notes throughout and apples welcoming us in. Both downstairs rooms were clean and comfy. Upstairs was a bit hot as it was hot outside, but clean. I had an 11 year old and 9 year old and they loved checking out the flowers outside and the figure-eight created by the 1/2 bath and center wall. Would definitely stay here on a return trip. Thank you!!

Amazingly comfy and stylish house in great neighbourhood.

  • 5 of 5

The house is a charm and well-equipped for any occasion or purpose. Spacious, homey, clean and vintage (with all modern updates one could want). Relaxing yard outdoors with a great bbq space. Well worth it; probably can't find better for twice the price. Owners are great to deal with.

Location

Car: not necessary

Down town, (just a ten minute walk down the hill), has much to offer! Some of which are, the farmers market ( biggest in the state), art galleries, restaurants on the water, the marina, the Capitol (set above the beautiful capitol lake which is a great spot for a walk), coffee houses, live theaters and many shops. Percival Landing has 1.5 miles of boardwalk with artwork and interpretive displays outline the history of the harbor. The Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge offers miles of level trails for those interested in Puget Sound Wildlife, especially birds. To help capture your findings, they are complete with viewing platforms and photo blinds. Also, the Hands-On Children's Museum, a state-of-the-arts educational playground for kids of all ages. It's right next door to the Wet Science Museum. It showcases the water cycle and how we humans participate in both polluting and cleaning our water. There is still so much more in Olympia!
