Guestbook comments from the manager

The Chicks of '66 had a wonderful weekend at your beautiful house. It

couldn't have been more perfect for our needs. The location was ideal for

walking and the nooks were great for small groups visiting. Everyone loved

the house and our beautiful community. A couple even went house hunting.

Thanks for making this wonderful home available for rental.

If in Walla Walla, This Is The Way To Go

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for a fabulous weekend. There simply could not have been better a place to stay. We had a large group of family and friends from near and (very) far come to celebrate our daughter's graduation from Whitman. The house was everything it was advertised to be, and more. A large, well-stocked kitchen, a beautiful pool (and 80 degree weather in which to enjoy it), and lots of rooms for people to sit, relax after a day of wine tasting, hiking and the other touristy things that make Walla Walla such a fun place to visit. The house had everything that we needed for the weekend. Everyone is my group had a great time, and raved about the house.

Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

This charming, clean, beautifully appointed home was perfect for my husband and I to celebrate our 60th birthdays. There were 16 of us, each had their own bedroom and 2 couples shared each of the 4 bathrooms. Plenty of room for all and we thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor pool/hot tub and surrounding patio area. Located in a historic area surrounded by other beautiful old homes, this house was close to downtown Walla Walla (about a .7 mile walk) and a grocery store. The kitchen was fully equipped and we made all meals in. The only suggestion I would make is to provide more kitchen towels! The concierge who met us at the house was very helpful giving us a house tour and explaining all the details of locking up the house, operating the pool/hot tub, setting the thermostat, etc. She even gave us her cell number to call her if we had questions. When we did, she was very responsive. This was the perfect home base to do our two afternoons of wine tasting at local Walla Walla wineries. Highly recommend this home!

Beautiful home that exceeded our expectations!!! Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 couples and 1 single adult, all 55+. The home is immaculate and beautifully maintained. Although we were a large group, we never felt crowded. There is ample room indoors and out. In fact several rooms (such as the formal dining room, den, etc.) were never used. We prepared 4 dinners during our stay and found the kitchen well-equipped and easy to work in. It would be wonderful to have an extra refrigerator in the mudroom or garage. We made it work by using ice chests for beverages. We also made use of the patio BBQ. The pool and hot tub were greatly appreciated as well.

The home is beautifully decorated with high quality bedding, comfy beds, and plenty of towels, with additional pool towels.

The mature landscaping and large lot make the backyard feel very private. Our only complaint is the neighbors dog (driveway side) that started barking every morning at 6:30. What a nuisance! Also, the bathroom situation was difficult at times since there was no easy access to the 2nd floor bathrooms (master & Jack & Jill bathrooms) for 3rd floor occupants if the 3rd floor bathroom was in use. This would most likely be less of a problem if multi-generational families rented the home as opposed to a large group of adults. The addition of an outdoor shower would be great!

Although we had 8 vehicles, parking was never an issue. Occasionally we had to shuffle them around a bit, but the ample parking was great! The proximity to downtown was perfect for a morning stroll to Starbucks. Property manager, Marysia, was very welcoming and did a wonderful job introducing us to the home and was always quick to respond when we had questions. All in all we had a spectacular time and hope to rent the home again!

Absolutely Spectacular!!! Everything we were hoping for & more!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was amazing! It's beautifully decorated & maintained with comfortable beds, quality linens, ample plush towels, (for both the pool & for bathing) etc. Having a washer & dryer available was handy. There were 15 adults sharing the home & we never felt the least bit crowded. In fact there were several rooms that were never used. The outdoor patio/pool area & large family room was where we spent the majority of time. Even though the home is in a traditional neighborhood, the over-sized lot & mature landscaping create a very private backyard with plenty of room for outdoor games, etc. We cooked/BBQ'd several of the nights & found the kitchen to be well-equipped. We could have used another refrigerator, but got by with ice chests for beverages. A second refrigerator, maybe in the mudroom or garage would be ideal. We were concerned we may have a parking issue as we had 8 cars, but there was ample space. It was occasionally necessary to shuffle cars around a bit, but it was never an issue.

With 7.5 couples the 4.5 bathrooms was somewhat of a problem at times, but we managed. We're planning to return, but will most likely have just 6 couples. An outdoor shower would be a wonderful addition!

Easy access to downtown (less than a 10 min walk) was ideal. We made several trips, as well as walking & jogging around the neighborhood.

We greatly appreciated property manager, Marysia's friendly welcome & quick response when we had questions.

The dog next door (driveway side) that started barking every morning at 6:30 was very annoying. Perhaps the neighbor could be contacted.

All in all, we had a wonderful stay. The home truly lives up to its description! Thank you Nick for sharing your beautiful property with us!
