Renting a studio apartment in Tumwater, WA

The bad news is that the hip neighborhoods are typically not the places to look for truly affordable homes for rent, and Tumwater, WA is no exception. That is unless you are willing to give up the (real or imagined) benefits of multiple rooms and experience the minimalist simplicity of a small apartment located smack dab in the middle of the action. Leaf through 11 listings with a total of 32 units, and you’ll be sure to find at least a couple of cheap studios that will make you wonder whether having one or two extra rooms is really worth the difference in price and commute time.
