Welcome to the Liberty Bungalow! We lovingly updated this 2-bedroom house to create a vacation rental we would want to stay in, even if Walla Walla wasn’t our hometown. Years of renting various vacation properties, combined with our love of our historic town, inspired us to create a unique experience for you to enjoy right in the heart of Walla Walla. Mere steps from everything downtown has to offer, this house couldn't be more conveniently located.
One of our goals for creating a unique vacation rental was to offer a variety of experiences within the rooms of the home. We converted the lion’s share of the garage into a home theater, complete with a 70” TV, recliners, indirect lighting, hundreds of DVDs and an excellent surround sound system. We paid special attention to acoustics and sound insulation (there’s even an insulated exterior-grade door) so the theater wouldn’t disturb the rest of the house.
We wanted to make the living room a fresh and inviting space perfect for relaxation. We chose colors and materials that are vibrant yet serene. There are comfy ergonomic chairs and a huge picture window for occasional people-watching, and a desk and computer (another source for streaming music or movies, if desired).
Around the corner from the living room is our lovely kitchen and dining area. We built in separate space for coffee, tea, and wine – you can spend a morning watching birds out the back window, in the shadow of the Marcus Whitman Hotel. The full-scale kitchen makes you feel right at home with all the amenities you need to dine in.
A bright and cheerful hallway entices with a huge historic map of Walla Walla and interesting memorabilia – see how many historic places you can find just mere blocks away.
At the end of our “historic hallway” is the master bedroom, which offers a warm and inviting array of colors and materials, including a comfortable Queen bed and cozy chair and ottoman. The master bedroom has a 32” TV with cable, and a smart blu-ray DVD player as well. And there’s plenty of storage with the built-in closet and drawers.
We’ve named the second bedroom the “Library” because it features stocked bookshelves (as well as many board games), and it offers you yet another unique atmosphere. The built-in headboard anchors the generous Queen bed, while a quaint reading chair and lots of mood-lighting are perfect for a pleasant afternoon with a good book.
The bathroom features fresh soft towels, a full tub/shower combo with new fixtures, and a dual-flush toilet! We’ve designed the bathroom to be bright and airy, with a large glass-block window that shines on a vivid color palette and a shiny white shower surround.
There are so many ways to revel in your stay at the Liberty Bungalow. Start your day with a cup of coffee in the bamboo-fenced backyard. Then hit the town (on foot!) for brunch at Bacon and Eggs (for the savory lovers) or Maple Counter Café (for the huge waffle breakfast lovers). Check out the local merchants like Main Street Furniture Company or Book & Game – from spring to late summer, wander over to the popular Farmers’ Market on 4th and Main. Come back and fire up the backyard BBQ! There’s plenty of room to enjoy a meal outside, or in the kitchen dining area, or even in the theater (TV trays and all!). Later, you can kick back with a bottle of wine and enjoy a high-def movie in a movie theater-like setting, or curl up with a good book and cup of tea, or just relax in the living room.
Or…hit the town again, and check out the pubs and wine-tasting rooms, or grab an ice cream cone at Bright’s on Main, or a coffee and dessert from the Colville Street Patisserie (amazing), right on the same street as the Liberty Bungalow.
The entire house is for the guests to use and enjoy! There is a "landlord only" storage cabinet in the garage, along with various tools and landscaping supplies; otherwise, the house, including the fenced backyard, is for guests.

You can refer to the A-Z movie list in the guest binder to find each movie's category, but please make sure each one you use is either put away in its proper place, or left out so we can take care of it. Thank you!

9. No Maid Service: There is no maid service to the rental. There is a washer and dryer in the front part of the garage for your use. There should be plenty of towels and sheets for you to use, but let us know if you run out of something (soap, shampoo, paper towels, etc) and we'll assist you with the replenishment. Do NOT take any linens or towels out of the rental! If you go boating or camping, you must use your personal supplies.

This person must be the primary renter and guest at the physical address of this rental during the entire rental period.
15. Inclement weather policy: No refunds will be given for bad weather.

17. Amenities Offered: Everything within our ability will be done to make sure what was offered in any advertising will be in the property as described. A difference in amenities does NOT automatically warrant a refund or rebate. If, for example, we advertise 2 DVD players, but one is out for repair or in the process of being replaced, that does not warrant a refund. If there are specific amenities featured on our listing that are critical to the enjoyment of your stay, please feel free to inquire with us to make sure it's ready for you.
18. This vacation rental is privately owned: The owner is not responsible for accidents, injuries or illnesses that occur while on the premises or its facilities. The owners are not responsible for the loss of personal belongings or valuables of the guest. By accepting this reservation, it is agreed that all guests are expressly assuming the risk of any harm arising from their use of the premises or its facilities or others whom they invite to use the premises or facilities.
19. Finally: Please respect the neighbors. We want you to have fun at the rental, but we ask that you do not throw parties, and to keep the number of people to 10 or less for gatherings. Loud socializing outdoors should cease by 10pm.
Customer service during your stay is our top priority. If there’s something you need, please let us know. Between the two of our families, we are always available to help with any questions you might have. We firmly believe that face-to-face customer service is great when it’s requested, but the appeal of vacation homes is self-sufficiency and privacy, which we strive to honor. That said, we are happy to assist you with anything you may need to the best of our ability. We hope your experience at the Liberty Bungalow will be truly unique, memorable, and enjoyable.
Brothers born and raised in beautiful Walla Walla Washington, we are proud to share our hometown with you, and thrilled to provide a meticulously renovated home in what we feel is an unbeatable location in downtown for visitors to enjoy!
