About Leslie Korn

We are two professors who divide our time between our homes in Olympia and Puerto Vallarta. We travel a great deal and are very fussy about our lodging and thus have designed our own homes with the same kind of comfort we want and thus share with our fellow travelers in mind.

Leslie Korn purchased this house in 2005

Why Leslie Korn chose Olympia

This is an ideal location for work or play; quiet, residential and set amidst the green belt, yet accessible to everywhere in Olympia within 10 minutes. Walk out the door and within 5 minutes there's an easy forest walk around a quick loop or dash to the local coffee shop for a locally-brewed espresso. Day trips to the shore or mountains are easy with entry 10 minutes away to I-5 or HWY 101.

What makes this house unique

It is meticulously clean and well stocked, lots of light, folk art, organic sheets and cotton/feather bedding on top- of- the- line mattresses and only non toxic cleaning inside and out. Gourmet kitchen with spices and oils and outside gas grill on a large deck makes this a comfy home- away- from- home.

Great House In West Olympia

  • 5 of 5

Leslie's cozy and warm home is a delight!

She has beautifully furnished this great home in a terrific part of Olympia

and you'll feel right at home once you open the front door.

We so appreciated the care she has put into the house, from the beautiful native art, furniture, to the kitchen and meal prep equipment. And we were very impressed with the wonderfully comfy mattresses and bedding, the bath towels, and how the family room was equipped - big TV, comfortable couch and chair.

It was a great refuge to truly "come home to" after a day out and around.

While it was cold and rainy when we stayed at the home, but we could tell the deck in back would be great to use during warmer weather.

Great location. Nice home. Very quiet and restful neighborhood!

Leslie is also a wonderfully attentive and gracious host.
