About the neighbourhood
Olympia is on the water in the Pacific Northwest, the capitol city in a rich and diverse population. We are just 35 minutes to Chamber's Bay US Open, freeway close. Snuggled in the Puget Sound, we are close to marinas, beaches, parks, hiking, biking trails, everything a vacation needs. Olympia has a thriving downtown Farmer's Market at Percival Landing, where live music and multitudes of events are hosted all summer long. Hands On Museum is a state of the art new children's museum, in walking distance to local eateries, micro breweries and fresh local clams, oysters and seafood. We are 1.5 hours to the ocean, 2 hours to Mt. Rainier. If it's big city attractions, Seattle is just 70 miles away up the freeway. My rental is a block away from the bay. Enjoy a full view of Mt. Rainier from the...
