This cozy tiny house is called the Bayside Bungalow and is located in rural Olympia, Washington. It’s right on the shore of the Puget Sound and you can rent the house nightly, weekly or even monthly if available. This is the best way to figure out if a tiny house is right for you or not. And it’s in a beautiful setting, too. It’s the perfect way to try on the simple life.
The home is between two apple trees and surrounded by tall fir trees and gorgeous gardens. Plus there are some outdoor chairs and a fire pit you can enjoy during your stay. Nearby you can use a trail that leads to the beach and a state park. So there’s plenty to do especially if you bring a kayak or canoe.

So let’s take a photo tour of the home right here and talk about all of the amenities inside.
The “great room” has vaulted ceilings so it feels spacious relative to its actual size. See below:
The house has two skylights and a total of 11 windows so there’s always plenty of natural light during the day. And with such beautiful scenery, you’ll feel great!
This tiny house is decorated perfectly in my opinion. I’d love to stay here and I just think this house really gives tiny homes a good reputation, don’t you think?
There’s a pretty large storage area in the loft directly above the front door and reading nook.
Once you get to the kitchen and bathroom the ceiling is 6’2″ high. So if you’re around that height or taller this might not be for you!
The table shown is expandable in case you need more space to eat, read or work on your laptop. There’s no wifi here though so if you want to get on the Internet bring your own connection!
The kitchen is galley-style with a bar size refrigerator, 2-burner stove, unique ceramic sink, microwave and French-press coffee maker.
Hot water is provided by a propane powered RV style water heater if you’re curious.
The sleeping loft offers a full sized bed and is accessed by a ladder. You have a skylight to star gaze at night and a window right by your head. It looks really cozy up there, doesn’t it?
Above you can see the closet you’d be using for storage to put your clothes away. There’s also extra storage space in the loft on the other side of the house where the front door is located.
Below is the view looking out from one of the skylights. You can see the water behind the trees if you look close enough.
Next you can have a look at the bathroom and if you’re curious about the toilet it’s a waterless composting toilet. I’ve used one before and I swear, no bad smells if used right. All you do is sprinkle sawdust in there after each use.
The shower which you can’t see in the photos is 34″ by 24″ and no need to bring your hairdryer because there’s one already here. 🙂
Below is a photo of the chair and fire pit I was telling you about earlier..
Here’s a shot of the house and the people who built it shortly after it was completed. Success!
This tiny house is about an 8-minute drive from the highway and 15 minutes from downtown Olympia. The nearest bus stop is 5 miles from the house so at the very least you’ll want to bring a bicycle. Minimum stay is two nights. Maximum occupancy is two people. To book your stay or to learn more click here to go directly to Brittany’s Airbnb.com listing.
