My wife and I decided to do a local vacation this year and researched different areas near Olympia. We looked at the pics, read the online reviews, and thought this is it. Once we arrived, we loaded all our belongings into the trolley and sent it down to the beach. The walk up and down to the beach house was really no big deal. We're both in our 50's and had no issues with the path. Once we arrived below, we looked around and had to pinch each other. What a view! We found ourselves making excuses not to leave whenever possible. During the week, we took day trips to Mt Rainier, Wolf Haven in Tenino, shopped antique stores in Tacoma, walked around the state capitol in Olympia, and a nice day trip to Seattle. The home interior was tastefully decorated and the owners had stocked the kitchen with almost every imaginable item a traveler could ask for. We LOVED walking the beach and witnessed amazing sunsets. We stayed 7 nights and had perfect unobstructed views of Rainier 4 of the days. It was an inspiring place to visit and we will surely return again. Look closely on the beach, and it won't be long before you find sea-glass. The beach curves around the mansion, and that's where you'll find the perfect sunset.
