This photo is at a Senior Co-Housing workshop in Neveda City California. Spending a weekend with Chuck Durrett (Author of Senior Co-Housing) has changed my direction significantly. I plan on facilitating Senior Co-Housing Workshops in the Puget Sound Region as an alternative for aging in place.

I Have lived in Olympia since 1983 and graduated TESC in 1983. I am an artist and a writer and a realtor. I love sailing, reading, cinema, and dogs and dogs who love sailing. I love the downtown for all the arts and restaurants and used book stores. Olympia has much to offer and supported all my business enterprises from the beginning. Other businesses I have owned and oeperated since I moved here. Lightwing airbrush clothing Company, 1st Expresso cart in Olympia at the Farmer's Market, Jinjor, Jaguar Crafts. i have been a member of Zonta, Chamber, VCB, Procession of the Species, Olympia Downtown Association, Past President of Northwest Eco-Building Guild, and presently practice Real Estate with Green Village Realty promoting sustainable development.

Debra Shapiro purchased this apartment in 2007

I owned JINJOR a Woman's Clothing Boutique in downtown Olympia for about 20 years. I catered to many woman who were dressing for special occasions and they were always asking me for a place their families could come for a week or more that had a full kitchen. I like the Olympia core downtown because it has so much to offer of old world charm. I have always enjoyed walking or biking to the waterfront or the downtown boutiques and cafe's. 910 Franklin seemed like the perfect spot. Europeans seem to particularly appreciate the elegant and functional decor. It is a clean, quiet, and comfortable place to retreat in the heart of downtown Olympia.

Walkability! There is a lovely deck to sit and have lunch or tea in the afternoon. It is a painter's paradise because of the color. The library is next door, the Farmer's Market, The Evergreen State College, the State Capitol, and all the shopping and cafe's are within walking distance.

Comfy spot near the Capitol and downtown

My partner and I stayed at Short Stay Lodgings while visiting family in Olympia. The apartment is clean, fully and tastefully furnished with a full kitchen so we didn't have to spend any money eating out, and is like staying at a friend's house, not at all like a motel.
Also, it felt good staying in a place that uses all green products to clean and has all natural fiber bedding. No chance of chemical sensitivities, and the owner also guarantees no pets, so there's no chance of allergies either. It's right next to a really cool community garden that you can hang out in, and right across the street from a fabulous library. Also, right in the middle between downtown and the Capitol, both an easy walk. I'd stay again next time we come.

Wonderful Stay in Downtown Olympia

Shortstay Lodgings offered a lovely stay, within walking distance of just about everything we wanted to do in Olympia. The accommodations were comfortable and welcoming. Not only the interior, but the garden spaces outside provided a welcome retreat after shopping and dining downtown, and browsing the library bookshelves just a block away. Thank you for the home away from home. It was great!

It is a little tricky making arrangements from across the planet, however Debra made it easy! She was prompt and friendly in all of our email exchanges. When we arrived, we were jet-lagged and ready to settle in. She met us there and our 6 year old daughter took to her immediately. Debra had even left games in our apt for her to play with. The apartment is lovely and comfortable (we stayed upstairs) and close to everything we needed. If I had a question, there was no hesitation to call Debra, I knew she would help out with anything I needed. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we are booked again for this coming summer and have also rented downstairs for our oldest daughter's family. I appreciate all that Debra does to make the apartment eco-friendly as well. We love it and will come back year after year! My daughter calls it the "house hotel" and is looking forward to going back!

Vacation in Olympia

Very glad we stayed here. Very clean and the owner even provided a high chair and bed for our young son. The location was very convenient for siteseeing in the Puget Sound. We could walk to many sites in Olympia including the lovely Farmer's Market and the Capital. I especially appreciated the green cleaning products used as my wife is chemically sensitive and some hotels just kill her. A good value for the money especially for a family.
