Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Northwest Olympia - The Little Yellow House

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.

A fabulous home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Olympia and with Ahtumn's little yellow house.

We didn't want to leave.

Close to everything ... walk to town, shop at the co-op, lunch at Hart's Mesa, Trader Joe's, Target ... everything you need is close by.

We are a Vegan/Vegetarian family and there were so many options available.

Everyone in Olympia was so friendly and welcoming. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived.

The downstairs bedrooms are so comfortable and the upstairs was the perfect space for our college "kids".

There is plenty of space in the living room for everyone to hang out and lovely outdoor spaces in the front as well as the backyard.

The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals in house, but with so many options in town you may not ever need it.

Bring comfy shoes - you'll want to walk everywhere. The nature trail is right across the street!

Tumwater falls is a must see - salmon running upstream was quite a sight to see, and the walk is beautiful.

We will definitely be back.

Thank you Ahtumn for sharing your wonderful home!

Lovely home with special touches

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in literally dozens of rentals through VBRO and have to say my experience with Ahtumn was truly one of the best!

She was so attentive and caring about our stay and all that went into it.

The house was just darling and so nice inside. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. The big table was great for playing games and the couch was super inviting.

The bedrooms were nice and roomy and it was nice having the half bath in addition to the full bath.

The upstairs was huge and perfect for kids. The stairs are a bit steep and narrow, but I think kids would maneuver just fine as long as they weren't too young.

Overall it was a great place to get away. Downtown Olympia is a short drive away with great shops and places to eat.

Speaking of places to eat... down the street a few blocks is the most amazing Mexican restaurant! We had breakfast there and it was wonderful! It was walking distance so very convenient.

Thank you Ahtumn for a nice stay!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our 4 night stay at your wonderful house. Our girls loved their own space up in the attic room. Everything was clean and organized and super well stocked kitchen with all your cooking needs. Great location with easy access to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping mall.

Sweet little house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and a great place to use as a home base for exploring Olympia and parts of the Olympic Peninsula. The owner was clear and responsive. Even went the extra mile by quickly mailing us a few items that we left behind.

The house is equipped with every thing one needs to be comfortable. We loved being able to walk to town, coffee, co-op, and the incredible breakfast spot, Hart's Mesa. We hope to be back again.

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!
