About the property

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

Holly has designed a luxurious getaway in the 1,100 sq. ft. pool house attached to her 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.

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.

Why Holly Graves chose South Central

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.

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.

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!

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and charming were our first words as we walked into this poolside retreat. The decor is top notch and all of the amenities make you feel like you are in a 5 star hotel. You are within walking distance to Whitman College and all that downtown has to offer. We can't wait to come back.

Beautiful Rental

  • 5 of 5

Not often you see pictures of a home and your expectations are exceeded upon arrival. This pool house is so beautifully decorated and has everything you could ask for. The beds and linens were very comfortable. The bathroom...oh the bathroom. It's gorgeous! Heated tile floors and a HUGE shower. Everything felt very luxurious. Fell in love with the wine barrel coffee table too. We stayed in April so the pool wasn't available yet but we did enjoy the hot tub. Easy walk to the main downtown area for shops and food. No complaints at all and would definitely stay again (hopefully for longer) when we come back to Walla Walla. Thank you!!

Had a wonderful two days in a delightfully appointed vacation rental. Walking distance to downtown, great neighborhood and extremely quiet. Would definitely recommend over the hotels located downtown in a heartbeat.

Less than what I had anticipated

  • 3 of 5

The inside of the redone pool house is lovely. However, I was expecting the outside to look more maintained and manicured. I understand it is not quite spring, but we felt that for the season and the fact that the pool was totally unusable and the outside uninviting, that the cost was too high. I'm sure it's nicer in the summertime when everything is in bloom, but the rental cost should reflect that.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you found the exterior of The Pool House less than expected. As I am sure you are aware, this past winter was much harder and longer than usual. In fact, there was still snow on the ground a week before your arrival. I do pay for a landscaping company to come and keep the property in good condition - unfortunately the timing of your visit did not coincide with ideal weather. As per the property description, the pool is only open May through September. There is a hot tub for our guests to enjoy during the off-season months.

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.

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.
