Why Margaret Holm chose Olympia

The townhome is so unique for its amenities, location and nice linens and supplies. You cannot find the quality and cleanliness of this property this close to the capitol or downtown in other places. That is why we are booked so often. We are open to daily, weekly or monthly arrangements.

What makes this townhome unique

4 bedroom 4 bath apartment . We have a 1 bedroom lower level apartment that can be added to sleep 12. Please request pricing for it. The last photos on the site show that lower level apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the wonderfully friendly owners to the cleanliness and location of the house was amazing! The owners greeted us to make sure we got in and settled and then gave us privacy. The house was perfectly appointed with everything we needed- kitchen, bath, bedroom, you name it! It's a five minute walk to grocery, food, festivals in the parks and an amazing farmers' market! We highly recommend this property!!!

Our family of five was in Olympia for our Granddaughters Masters Degree graduation. This beautiful 4 BR home was perfect for us - each BR had it own bath, the whole house was spacious and superbly decorated. Large open kitchen with a large deck overlooking Olympia and Mt. Rainer - excellent for relaxing with an evening drink. The location as perfect - 15 min almost to anything local.

The owners were very gracious and accommodating - they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable an at home. We had the most gorgeous weather but Ed and Margaret cannot guarantee this !!!

We came back to the sweet town of Olympia to visit friends and family and we were so pleased that this popular vacation property was available. Because there were just two of us, we stayed on the main level unit here earlier in the year, during the Fall, but to be here in the Spring was simply gorgeous. The brightly colored tulips were all abloom around the property, the views again were spectacular! The panoramic view of Mt. Rainier, Capitol Lake and Puget Sound was breathtaking! The owners are so nice and accommodating. It's hard to find a clean, safe VRBO just across the bridge from downtown. And it's really close to great shopping at the Capitol Mall with movie theater, shops and restaurants. As usual, our VRBO was exceptionally clean, flawlessly decorated, fully equipped and very comfortable. Absolutely first class from clean luxurious carpet, to perfect wall paint and abundant lighting. There is a charming front patio that is great to take in the view. If I had a large group I'd rent the entire property, but it is nice to have the flexibility and we only needed the main floor. IF THIS IS AVAILABLE BOOK YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW OR WAIT TIL IT IS AVAILABLE!!!

Northwest College Tour

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I were on a college tour throughout Washington and Oregon. I was looking for a clean and comfortable place to rest our heads in Olympia, someplace with character and charm, in a great location... and we were more than pleased! This "unit" is much more.... it is the whole main floor of a darling 3 story view home.... beautiful decor, fireplace, complete kitchen, lovely covered patio with views of Mt. Rainier, 5 minutes to downtown and one block from bus going to Evergreen State College. It was so nice we extended our stay another night just to relax in comfort and style. The owner is really great to work with and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. One little touch that said so much: a fresh miniature pink rosebud in a little vase in the bathroom. Sometimes it's the little things! If our daughter goes to school here I'd always stay at this wonderful place! I highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Olympia, or who just wants to visit a cool, hip waterfront town halfway between Seattle and Portland. Thank you for the fabulous visit! We hope to be back!

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Olympia townhome for 4 nights to attend a wedding in town and found the accomodations to be excellent, and just as described. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, the decor beautiful, and Margaret was a breeze to work with. Downtown is extremely walkable from this lovely home, and there are many parks and outdoor spaces nearby. The only critique we had was that one of the mattresses was worn and in need of replacing (was fine for one person but for two was uncomfortable).

Wedding in Olympia

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in your lovely home was absolutely wonderful! The description on the website captures every aspect! Our cousins (from Wisconsin and Georgia) met for the celebration of a family wedding. We wanted to be able to visit and spend time together in a home. It was just perfect!!!! We loved the early morning time we were able to spend on your deck enjoying our coffee and the magnificant views. The views at night were breathtaking as well. The location is perfect---- we were able to walk the boardwalk and also ate at several excellent restaurants. We also took advantage of walks around the lake. The weather was cool for the Southerners but the fireplace was a wonderful place to gather around in the evening and chat about our day. Your home is so comfortable and inviting. The beds were awesome and anything and everything we needed was available to us!!!! Our only complaint was that our time went too fast! We all wished that we could have more time together in your beautiful home. Thank you for allowing us to be your guests.
