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 sleeps 8 in 4 queen beds. One rollaway is available.

We have a 1 bedroom lower level apartment that can be added for one queen bed and a queen sleeper sofa. Please request pricing and availability for it. The last photos on the site show that lower level apartment.

Large wrap-around decking on the main living area. Decks are also located on the third floor off of each bedroom.

lowest level has a spacious patio.

No pets or smoking is allowed.

A Jewell

  • 5 of 5

Margaret and Ed have hosted us 3 times. They are very gracious hosts; communicate well, and promptly reply to any questions or needs that you might have. The location is perfect. Near the Capitol, Farmers Market and not too far from Lacey.

We rented the one bedroom apartment. The property is immaculate, decorated with comfortable furniture and soothing colors, well-stocked kitchen. Margaret has a beautiful garden and sitting on the front porch/patio is delightful. You can see the Sound and Mount Rainier. There is plenty of room to enjoy dinner outside and relax. Our daughter, husband, and 3 children all enjoyed eating outside, relaxing, and exploring the garden.

Well-situated, well-equipped, comfy home

The house is lovely, roomy, and has everything that anybody could need - serving platters, games, books, pillows galore, good bathtubs, balconies with watery views. It was perfect for our family gathering. Thank you, Margaret!

This rental made our week in Olympia FANTASTIC!!!

  • 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!!!

LUXURY - LOCATION - QUALITY

  • 5 of 5

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 !!!

LOOK NO FURTHER! LOCATION! BEAUTIFUL DECOR! VIEW!

  • 5 of 5

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!
