My wife and I went to Walla Walla for our 10 yr Anniversary get away, and we decided to stay at Girasol Vineyard and Inn. When you drive up to the property you pass several wineries and vineyards, and you get a magnificent view of the hills in the distance. The Inn is surrounded by three types of grapes growing on the property, Each of the three rooms are named fror one of the types of grapes - very cool. So, the property is beautiful, farily new (2006 I believe was the establishment of the vineyard). The rooms are quaint, luxurious, and very comfortable. The bathroom has a rainfall wallkin shower. Each room has a small patio looking out into the backyard of the home/Inn and beyond are the grapes! Just off the patio is a chimenay ( I know I didn't spell that right ) for each room, which was ready to be lit when we got there. There is a dining/kitchen area and gathering area for all guests. The owners keep the Inn fridge stocked with assorted beverages available anytime. The breakfasts were positively amazing. Of the husband/wife team who run the Inn, the husband is the gourmet chef. He actually attended culinary school, and his skills reflect it. Michelle (wife) is extremely knowledgable about all the local restaurants/wineries. Listen to her and you CAN NOT go wrong. I will be returning to Girasol in the future. Worth every penny.

Before we arrived Michele had already taken care of our golf tee times and prepared us with a list of recommendations for lunch and dinner. (Every suggestion she made was right on). We were blown away by the awesome scenery of the Inn and the warmth and friendliness of their hospitality. The Inn is in wonderful proximity of the wineries and we found it to be the ideal setting for us. (Golf and wine-tasting were our agenda!) We cannot wait to come back!

What a perfect place! Close to some great wineries, yet far enough out to really enjoy the peace and quiet you'd expect in the country. The room was perfect- not one thing overlooked! Host was amazing as was his food (we missed Michele;o(. We'll be back, and highly recommend this place.

My wife and I stayed at Girasol for the Memorial Day Weekend, 2011. We will stay there again soon. We had a wonderful weekend. The location is perfect, close enough to town, but out in the Vinyards with a beautiful view of the vines and farms for miles, and no noise from cars or highways. It is very close to many amazing wineries, some right next door. The owners (Edward and Michele) are friendly and extremely knowledgeable about wine and the area. I was there to race Onion Man (a local triathlon) and to vacation. They were perfectly accommodating to my unusual needs (pre-race calories and out the door early). They also recommended great restaurants and fun ideas, and were the perfect balance of available to help, talk or answer questions, but allowing for privacy and relaxing, as well. The rooms were upscale, spotless and very comfortable, and the outside facilities were great for relaxing in the sun or sitting around by the fire. We didn't want to leave.

Our stay at Girasol Vineyard and Inn was outstanding. Owners Michelle and Edward were wonderful. The location, view and facility are gorgeous and the breakfasts were amazing. And it is situated right in the middle of some great wineries (Rulo was incredible). We will definitely stay there again in future visits to Walla Walla. I highly recommend Girasol!

Girasol Inn was a delightful experience. Owners are lovely people and we couldn't have asked for a better breakfast spread. We will visit Girasol Vineyard & Inn again.

Our recent stay in Walla Walla at Girasol Vineyard & Inn could not have been better (okay the weather wasn't perfect!). Michele and Edward have a first class and very comfortable B&B. Nicely appointed (and private!) room, and a terrific breakfast to kick start the day as well. We also took advantage of a deal that included a cooking class, and had a GREAT time. We'll definitely be back!!!

We watched pheasants and deer run through the vineyards as we ate the hearty breakfast prepared by Edward. Michele has a wealth of knowledge about the region and all cultural or wine-related events and activities. beautiful and comfortable place, warm and friendly innkeepers, scrumptious food and unlimited access to expressos, what more to ask for a perfect weekend getaway!

Great picturesque setting, delightful hosts. Enjoyed a patio fire each evening while sipping fine,local wine. Nice accommodations for relaxing. We looked forward to a wonderful breakfast each morning.

Michele and Edward were marvelous hosts and we had a fantastic time celebrating our anniversary in Walla Walla. Girasol was a very nice, private retreat in a vineyard and near other wineries that was still an easy drive to town. Signage getting there (and for wine tourism in Walla Walla overall) is not ideal, so follow directions carefully.

Michele and Edward took great care of us with wonderful breakfasts, interesting suggestions for wineries to visit and the room was very nice!

We loved the room - its ambience, the comfortable big bed, the porch with its clay fireplace, the view, and the breakfast. A special touch was the cheese plate waiting for us in the room. Extra value is provided through complimentary bottled water and sodas. We'll definitely be back.

Edward and Michele are extremely welcoming and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfasts generous. Well fitted out bathrooms (towel warmer included) and 'surprise and delights' such as make-up remover pads and a real bar of soap complete the very relaxing experience.

My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary with our first trip to Walla Walla and booked a weekend at Girasol. The setting is superb, in the middle of their vineyard and surrounded by wineries and more vineyards. My husband, who generally gets weird when I say that I want to stay in a B&B, loved this place. All suites have private entrances and of course, bathrooms. We even sat on our patio with a fire in our chiminea, watching the sun fade and the stars come out. The hosts are great, they sent us to wineries for comp tastings. Breakfast were more than we usually eat, and they have an espresso machine. I'll stay married so we can return again.
