Olympia cottage 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.
Owner-occupied residence is right next door (50 ft away). Should you have any questions or concerns, or if there is something you may need, we are easily reachable.
We absolutely love it here and never take for granted the beauty of the Pacific NW. We hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we do.

- Komara Kottage offers a quiet, private and serene location. The beautiful waters of Eld Inlet can be seen from both the kitchen and bedroom. Beach access and lounging on the bulkhead landing provides you with an even greater, more expansive, view of Eld Inlet and Dana Passage. Bald eagles nest nearby and can often be seen flying from tree-top to tree-top. Ducks and seagulls are plentiful and are often feeding on the fresh clams. Clam digging is available year-round. However, it is always important to check with the State for areas of the Sound that might not be safe for clamming. Off the beaten path, Komara Kottage is as great place to get away and relax. It is highly suited for artists who enjoying painting or writing music who often find inspiration in solitude. ...moreless

This Place Is Perfect..
This Place Is Perfect..
My husband and I rented this Cottage for my parents who came for a week. The place is beautiful and well maintained. Kathleen and Steve were very friendly and did everything to make my parents feel welcome. It's a beautiful area with lots of trees and water views. This cottage has everything you need for a wonderful and peaceful stay. Thank you Kathleen and Steve we will see you again.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure having your parents stay at the cottage and we are so glad that everyone enjoyed their time here. We look forward to having them stay with us again. I will never forget the sweet gesture of bringing me flowers. They were beautiful and I enjoyed them for days. Thank you so much.
What a treasure! What a find!
What a treasure! What a find!
Tomorrow we will be completing our 2 month stay in the cottage. The grounds are pristine, the view of Eld Inlet amazing. Our hosts are hard working, thoughtful landlords who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The modern cottage looks brand new and the set up seems much roomier than the pictures depict. The drive to the cottage is a bit out of town but well worth the drive onto roads canopied by beautiful evergreens and deciduous trees. The 4 miles of hilly Gravelly Beach Loop is a great aerobic work. Deer, birds, and assorted other wildlife are visible nearly everyday. We were so glad to stay at Komara Cottage and look forward to staying again.

Owner response: Thank you so much for such a nice review. My husband and I truly enjoyed your stay at the cottage and you two were excellent renters. We felt completely comfortable having you here full time and also took comfort in knowing we had responsible renters looking out for our home and property for those times when we could not be here. It was wonderful getting to know you and we hope to stay in touch for years to come.
I was in the Olympia area visiting family for a week and stayed at the Waterfront Cottage. The cottage was perfect for me--offering a "home" base that felt like a home. Spending a week in a hotel is definitely not pleasant, and the cottage definitely was. The reality is better than the photos. The view is terrific, and the cottage is very well decorated. There is plenty of room for two (my sister joined me for part of the time). The main house does not block the view much at all. The owner was pleasant, and I appreciated having a door to knock on if there were any issues (there weren't). I've stayed at other VRBO properties in the Olympia/Lacey area, and this is now my "go to" place to stay.

Owner response: Thank you so much for the nice review. We do our best to offer all our guests a comfortable “home” away from home. And so glad to hear that our cottage is now your “go to” place to stay when traveling out this way. We look forward to your next visit.
It was a beautiful location and the cottage was very well-maintained and clean. The furnishings were well-kept and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with sufficient equipment for most cooking and the pots, pans, utensils, etc. were all of a nice quality which is a very pleasant change from most rentals we have visited. The bathroom was well-stocked with clean, plush towels, although maybe a bit cozy for two people. I was skeptical of the wall-mounted electric heat when we arrived, but it provided more than enough warmth. The location was very convenient to Olympia, I-5, Route 101, and the Olympic National Forest. We would definitely re-visit this property if we were traveling to Olympia again.

Owner response: We are so glad to hear that our cottage worked out well for you during your time here in Washington. It’s a priority for us to keep the cottage well maintained and stocked with the essentials to make your experience as nice as can be expected when traveling away from home. With regard to the electric heat, we too are pleased with how quickly and efficiently it runs. It makes it easy to keep the cottage at a comfortable temperature for our guests.
The actual space was even better than the pictures and descriptions. Everything was very nice, the bed and sheets were very comfortable and access was great. It is about 25 minute drive to downtown Olympia but the setting is well worth the drive. Very easy to get to Highways 5 and 101 if you are taking any day trips. The owners are very nice and the house and grounds are impeccable. I would highly recomment this for couples and would go back myself. Oh, the view is outstanding!

Owner response: We are always so pleased to hear that our guests truly enjoyed their stay in the cottage. With the majority of our guests being far from home, our goal was to create a space in which each and every guest feels comfortable here, whether it’s spending time relaxing in the cottage by day or sleeping comfortably at night. We appreciate your kind words and it was our pleasure having you here.

All the comforts of home! Quiet and restful and immaculately clean. Beautiful view of the water and short walk to shore. Friendly owners. Much better than a hotel room.

A lovely stay in Olympia, WA!
A lovely stay in Olympia, WA!
My husband and I stayed overnight here on July 30, 2012. It was the perfect rental! It was just the right size for the two of us, with a full kitchen, 3/4 bath, and comfy queen size bed. Everything was immaculately clean and all of the furnishings looked new and recently updated. We greatly appreciated the 500 thread count sheets, soft towels, free wifi, Keurig coffeemaker, and iPod dock (which were just a few of the nice touches included in this guesthouse)! The view of the inlet was lovely, and the weather was perfect while we were there. The short trail to the private beach was nice, and we appreciated that the owners offered to let us use a couple of kayaks and lawn chairs for our short stay, even though we didn't end up using them. The private beach itself was gorgeous. We enjoyed our morning coffee looking at the calm waters of Puget Sound, and enjoyed looking for clams, crabs, and shellfish at low tide. There is lots of great dining and shopping in Olympia. We had a lovely experience here and would definitely stay here again in the future! Highly recommended!

Owner response: Our first review! Yeah! With us being new to VRBO, we thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review of our cottage. We know that travelers have many choices when it comes to lodging and we recognize the value in hearing about other traveler’s experiences when it comes to making those choices. But more than that, we were so pleased to hear that you and your husband really enjoyed your stay here and we were delighted to learn that the two of you had a good experience.

About the owner: 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 the Owner 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
