Clean & modern apartment in a renovated walkout basement with big windows and plenty of comfort. Centrally located: less than 5 minutes from St. Peter Hospital, only 10 minutes to St. Martin's University, and about 15 minutes to Evergreen State College.

The space
The 600+ sq ft apartment at Little Big Sky is a walkout basement with a private carport and entrance. It has large windows overlooking a lawn and garden. Although our home was built in 1953, the apartment was completely renovated in 2015. The living space is open-concept and serves as a dining room, office, and den.

The kitchen is equipped with: a refrigerator, an electric hot plate, a toaster oven, pots and pans, a toaster, a kettle, a french press, basic cooking utensils, knives, flatware, plates, bowls, serving ware, glassware, and cleaning supplies. We also provide a stocked tea & coffee station (with locally roasted coffee!) and we supply basic cooking ingredients, like salt, pepper, and cooking oil.

The bathroom is equipped with a hair dryer, bath towels, hand towels, face towels, toilet paper (a couple rolls), shampoo, and soap.

The living area features a 40 inch high definition TV, a Blu-ray DVD player, an Amazon Fire TV Stick for streaming, a DVD library, a book library, a queen-sized sofa bed, an iron & ironing board, a desk, and a bar-height dining table with seating for two people. The streaming capabilities on the DVD player and Fire TV allow you access use your own streaming accounts (Netflix, Hulu, etc.). Note: we do not offer cable, but are happy to suggest some streaming services if you're looking for something specific during your stay. (Most services come with a free trial period.)

The bedroom has a queen-sized bed with a memory foam mattress, a closet with hangers, and a large dresser.

An on-site, private (not shared) washer & dryer is available for guests to use for free. We supply minimal laundry supplies (soap, etc.), so if you're joining us for a long stay, please bring your own (or buy some when you get here). We do not have a land-line phone or dishwasher.

Where you’ll be

Olympia, Washington, United States

Our home is at the end of a secluded street. We don't really have any neighbors! That said, we're only 8 minutes from downtown Olympia by car, so there are many nearby restaurants, bars, and amenities. We are walking distance to a VFW post and a bowling alley.

Our family of five consists of my husband and I, our 5-year old son, our 3-year old daughter, and our tabby cat Zo. My husband and I were both trained in the sciences (I'm a math teacher, he's a medical physicist) where we met in college at University of Montana in Missoula. Our travel style is to look for new places to explore, even if we're visiting a place we've already been. We have visited the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico and explored Mayan ruins, cenotes, and -- of course -- the Caribbean Sea; and in 2013 we took a grand adventure to Ireland & Spain to attend a beautiful wedding on the island of Mallorca. Most of our vacation time, though, is spent within a day's drive of Olympia, exploring the wonders in our own "backyard." We renamed our property Little Big Sky, as to us it is the perfect amalgamation of our Montana and Idaho roots: private and rural, but still very close to downtown Olympia. We're excited to share our little pocket of Pacific Northwest paradise with our guests!
