About this listing
Come stay in our private guesthouse located on 2-acres with ample off-street parking and big shade trees. Located 10 minutes from downtown Walla Walla and 2 minutes from Walla Walla University, our one-bedroom guesthouse is ideal for short term tourist visits and university-related trips (graduations, parent days, student pick-up/delivery). Year-round fun in an indoor pool and hot tub. Oh, and you will find fast internet here.
Relax on the back deck with views of the Blue Mountains. Enjoy
This is a spacious guest house. It includes a roomy bedroom, a living area with view, and brand new bathroom with a luxurious round glass shower. There is a washer and dryer. The full kitchen includes stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. You will find a big-screen TV connected to a Chromebox with a very fast internet connection. The windows look out over a patio table and chairs, and large yard with excellent privacy.
The apartment is in a separate building, away from our house with a private entrance. You will enjoy lots of privacy. There is abundant off-street parking, including room for a trailer and a turn-around. You can come and go without disturbing us in the least, and you won't notice our comings and goings.
Interaction with guests
Most likely we will be on location during your stay. We'll interact with you only as much as you'd like. We are excited to host guests and share our hospitality, but we are also happy to just provide a private setting for you.
If we are around when you arrive we will greet you and show you the apartment. If you get here at a time that we're unable to do that we will give you instructions on how to get in, where to park, etc.
Other things to note
A short walk from your door is the outside entrance to the pool room where you will find a 36' x 18' pool that is about 4' deep and fully lined with soft rubberized lining. Next to it is a hot tub big enough to seat 6 easily. Contact us if you want to use the pool and hot tub so we can get then ready for you. We generally do not keep the pool heated in the winter, but some people enjoy soaking in the 101-degree hot tub, then jumping into the cold pool and then back into the hot tub. If you would like to have the pool heated, let us know ahead of time, and there will be an extra charge of $20 and it takes about 9 hours to heat the pool. No extra charge for the hot tub.
Enjoy a pick-up game of basketball on our regulation half-court. Lighted for night play.
We assume the best of you, and we want you to assume the best of us. If something isn't right, let us know and we will make it right. Speak up if the accommodations do not meet your needs or expectations. Give us a chance to fix it - because we will try!
We want to be sure this place is ready when you arrive. We are flexible about the check in/check out times if there is no conflict between arriving and departing guests. Communicate your arrival and departure times, and any changes. Please don't arrive early.
There are beds for 4 people, but the place is roomy, and if you have children or others willing to sleep on a futon on the floor, we are happy to provide the bedding. Just let us know.
Children are welcome, but children of all ages count as 'people' and must be included in the guest count. Arriving at the home with more guests than you booked, including babies and small children, violates Airbnb rules and our policy. Please book for the correct number of guests.
Pet owners welcome! Please keep your pets off the bed and couch. Cleaning pet hair is time consuming and difficult for us, thank you.
We do not have a fenced in yard, so your pet must remain leashed when in the yard and kenneled when left alone. Tell us about your pet when you book. Thank you for cleaning up after your pet.
There is a pool and hot tub on the property. We want you to enjoy them, but please remember that it is at your own risk. If you choose to allow your children to use then, it is at your own risk.
No illegal activity. This includes torrenting and downloading copyrighted materials from house wifi. No smoking inside. If you smoke outside, pick-up your trash.
Housekeeping: We want your kitchen area to always be clean and pleasant. If you are here for more than 2 days, or if you put raw meat or vegetables in the trash, take the trash out. There is a large garbage can outside your door.
We aim to provide nice-quality bedding. Please don't eat or drink while sitting on the bedding. However, we understand that accidents happen! If you spill something on the sheets or blankets, please alert us fast so that we can wash it. Remove make-up before crawling into bed to avoid stained bedding.
Carefully check bedding before you leave. This benefits you! We have found cell phones in the bedding and often find clothing mixed in.
Please leave the house reasonably clean and tidy (dishwasher loaded, heavy spills wiped up)
Thanks for reading all our rules! Relax and enjoy your stay! We look forward to knowing you had a good time here.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
Art and Ronda have lived here since 2012. We have three children still living at home (grade school, high school, and college age), and older children spread across the country. We had fun remodeling and decorating the guesthouse for our AirBNB guests. We hope you have fun here too!
