Olympia Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Komara Kottage is located on the South Sound's beautiful Eld Inlet with a breath-taking view of the Sound and Dana Passage.
Nestled between tall evergreens, Komara Kottage offers a quiet, private and serene location for daily living. The beautiful waters of Eld Inlet can be seen from both the kitchen and bedroom of the cottage. Beach access and lounging on the bulkhead landing provides you with an even greater, more expansive, view of Eld Inlet and Dana Passage as well as Mt Rainier.
Komara Kottage offers the best in comfort. The queen-size bed is outfitted with a brand-new pillow-top mattress and fine linens. And bath towels are 100% cotton. And as a special touch, homemade hand/body soap is provided. An extended surface area is available near the front door which makes for a great space to recharge all your electronics (plenty of electrical outlets) or set your keys, bags, purses, etc.
In the kitchen, enjoy all the comforts of home. Silverware, dishes and flatware are provided as well as pots and pans. There’s a microwave, toaster and a Keurig Coffee Maker. Your morning coffee is included with your stay. Please feel free to bring your favorite K-Cups from home. Tea & hot cocoa are also provided. And always enjoy fresh, clean drinking water with Reverse Osmosis-filtered water.
Komara Kottage is a perfect romantic escape. Spend your stay enjoying the outdoors or stay indoors and cozy up.
Cleanliness is a priority for us. When you enter the cottage, not only will the cottage look clean, our goal is to ensure it is clean. All touch surfaces (door handles, locks, light switches, drawer pulls, thermostat dials, remote controls and all other touch surface areas) are disinfected before each new arrival. All the furniture is wiped down, wood surfaces and window blinds are dusted, and the floors and carpets are vacuumed thoroughly and all rugs are either washed or steam-cleaned on a regular basis. And last but not least, the bathroom is kept thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
If you prefer to arrive by boat or wish to have your boat available for use, you are welcome to anchor off-shore.
Enjoy walking along the beach or digging fresh clams. Just be sure to check with the Washington State Department of Health for Red Tide in the area prior to clam-digging.
Frye Cove Park is just minutes away by car and/or boat. The park has several nice trails for hiking as well as a picnic area and play area for children.
The Olympia Farmer’s Market is a great place for fresh produce & plants. The market is open 10am – 3pm, April-October, Thurs-Sun, and Nov-Dec, Sat & Sun and is located in downtown Olympia.
Go to a movie, enjoy live theater (schedule-specific), or eat out to enjoy Olympia’s cuisine, the Westside of Olympia is just 20 minutes away and downtown is only 25 minutes away. And the popular Little Creek Casino is just eleven miles down the road.

About Kathleen Shimshock-Lyons
Steve is a native of Washington and I, Kathleen, have lived here since 1987 and we both absolutely love the Pacific Northwest. As his grandpa would often say, 'this is God's country.' Living on the Puget Sound is truly a blessing and we are both so grateful for the privilege of caring for 'our little corner of the world.' We are often inspired and in awe of the scenery and wildlife and truly enjoy sharing it with others.

Why Kathleen Shimshock-Lyons chose Olympia
Komara Kottage is one of the best kept secrets around. The quiet, the solitude, the peacefulness and nature's magnificent landscape make this the perfect get away. Off the beaten path, the noise of the city is left behind. It's the perfect place to unwind and read your favorite book. However, if it's city life you crave, downtown Olympia is only 25 minutes away. And the entertainment of Little Creek Casino is just 11 miles down the road.
What makes this cottage unique
From the moment you pull in the driveway, you will feel yourself beginning to breathe a little easier. The view of the water just seems to calm the senses. And unlike many other beach front locations, this property is very private and very quiet. And as you enter your 'home away from home,' the warmth and feel of the cottage is very inviting. And with a short walk to the water, spending time outside enjoying the view and wildlife and simply breathing in the fresh country air, is the perfect way to rejuvenate oneself.
