Walla Walla Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Apartment With Large Pool And Hot Tub

Owners Scott and Holly Graves have designed a luxurious getaway in the 1,100 sq. ft. pool house attached to their home. New to VRBO in 2013 the abundant amenities found at the Pool House will help you create a very memorable Walla Walla vacation. It is located four blocks from Whitman college on University street. Only a 15 minute walk or short bike ride away from downtown.

Three sets of French doors open up to reveal the beautifully landscaped court yard. Amenities include a large pool (open seasonally), 6 person hot tub, fire pit, outside dinning table and poolside seating.

The kitchen is well appointed and fully equipped, ready for you when not enjoying the many first class local eateries. The luxurious bathroom is truly a work of art. It has a large 4' x 8' two person shower, heated tile floor, plush towels and bath robes.

The interior of the Pool House has been very tastefully decorated. The minute you walk in you will know you made the right decision in choosing to stay at the Pool House. You will enjoy the artwork (several pieces are by a local artist) and comfortable feel provided by the thoughtfully chosen furnishings.

The Pool House provides two stylish tandem town cruiser bicycles for our guests to explore Walla Walla. Ride through the beautiful Whitman College campus on your short trip to downtown. There is not a better way to get around Walla Walla and you will be the envy of everyone you meet while riding these one of kind bicycles.

Please take a minute and read the reviews submitted by the guests of the Pool House. It is one thing to read a property description written by the owners but it is the guest's experiences that tell the real story.

About Holly Graves

Scott and Holly Graves moved to Walla Walla in 2005. Holly grew up in nearby Dixie, WA and Scott fell in love with Walla Walla on his first visit. Scott works in management for a large wind power company and Holly is stay at home Mom and manages several rental properties. They have three wonderful children and love raising them in such an amazing town. Scott is an avid mountain biker and Holly loves cooking.

Holly Graves purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Holly Graves chose South Central

Scott and Holly developed a vision for this property and purchased it in 2012. The main house is very spacious so they decided to redesign and remodel the pool house to use as a vacation rental. Construction began on the Pool House in November of 2012 and was completed and rent ready April 1st, 2013. Holly and Scott love Walla Walla and wanted to create a vacation getaway to allow others to enjoy the Walla Walla experience.

What makes this apartment unique

In the early 1900's the vacation rental portion of the house was built to serve as the pool house for a large Tudor style mansion located on Division street. Eventually the main house was added onto the pool house to create an amazing home with lots of character. There is not another property in Walla Walla like this one and Scott and Holly want to share it with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Your pool house retreat turned out to be one of the best VRBO's we have ever stayed in. Everything about your home spoke volumes with the attention to detail. The comfort was unsurpassed. When the AC needed repaired you replied promptly. I recommend your pool house for 5 stars! My husband and our friends hope to return again soon.

Thank you!

Great place for your visit to Walla Walla!

  • 5 of 5

This home would be great any time of the year for any getaway. Very nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. Once rented, emails handled very rapidly and check in was easy. We had a group of women there for a weekend event and we all loved it. We slept 6 comfortably and had plenty of room for our other friends that came over to just visit and chat. Spacious enough for all of us. Location is central to all things in Walla Walla. Amenities are nice and kitchen has everything you need. Although we didn't get an opportunity to use the pool (weather and time of year) the home has doors that open out directly to the pool so it would be wonderful for the spring/summer. Large bathroom with dual shower heads that has a spa feel to it. Great experience and won't hesitate to rent it again.

Great Getaway in Walla Walla

  • 5 of 5

The pool house is a fantastic place to stay in Walla Walla. I highly recommend it. The house is located about a mile outside of town, in a quiet neighborhood. My husband and I were able to park our car and either bike or walk everywhere. The house was clean and the air conditioning was a real treat to beat the 100 degree temps when we arrived. There's a Safeway less than a mile from the property so we were able to pick up some snacks and drinks when we arrived. That evening we walked around the neighborhood which is conveniently located next to a large community park. On our first full day at the house, we enjoyed coffee (provided) at a little table just outside the french doors, then we took a dip in the pool (shared with the owners although they gave us pretty much complete privacy) and after that we used one of the two "bicycles built for two" available to renters to bike into town. We had an absolute blast on the easy bike ride into town to grab lunch. There are ~35 wineries right in town, so plenty to choose from, all within a few blocks. We visited three wineries in town and found the employees all very friendly and knowledgeable about the wine and the town history.

The king bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning unit in back kept the bedroom cool. The large double shower was a real treat too! There's also a BBQ for use just outside the entry door although we didn't use it on this trip. The house also incorporates a few fun aspects like a wine wall that you can take one from and replace with another bottle and a memory book that dates back several years that you are encouraged to sign before leaving.

My only (very minor) complaint is that there was no shade covering the window on the entry door so it didn't feel quite as private as it otherwise could. Overall a great trip and romantic getaway although I would easily bring my two boys back here on a future trip.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights at the pool house and loved our stay. Our kids were in the pool multiple times a day loved it, the pool and backyard were ideal for enjoying the summer weather. The house is very close to downtown and several parks which made for nice outings when we felt the need. The kitchen was well appointed and had all we needed to have most meals in. The space is nicely laid out and the beds were very comfortable. All in all it was a great place for our vacation.

The best place to stay in Walla Walla!

  • 5 of 5

The pool house is absolutely perfect! We wine tour a few times a year in Walla Walla. This is by far my favorite! The tandem bikes are the perfect addition we used them several times to ride to dinner downtown. You won't be disappointed, The Pool House is a must!

Perfect 4th of July get away for family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights over the 4th of July weekend with our 3 kids at the pool house. Everything was perfect! The house is gorgeous including everything you need in the kitchen and an awesome double shower bathroom! We pretty much stayed in the pool most days and loved the gorgeous backyard. The tandem bikes were awesome and we loved riding the short ride into town for lunch or treats. Scott and Holly were even nice enough to let our oldest borrow a bike so we could all go together. I would definitely recommend the pool house!

Excellent digs

  • 5 of 5

The Pool House was the perfect stop after our river float. The accommodations were quite comfortable for the 4 of us. The pool was refreshing and our hosts were friendly, responsive, and respectful of our privacy. Wine tasting was excellent and we had a nice dinner only a short tandem bike ride through campus to downtown. I would highly recommend The Pool House and hope to stay the next time we visit Walla Walla.

Car: recommended

Walla Walla is becoming the place to come for wine tasting, great food and just getting away from it all. Downtown Walla Walla is less than a mile away from the Pool House and has everything you need with for a great getaway with small town charm.
