Why Ralph Erath chose Tapteal West

The Tri-Cities region of South-East Washington is an excellent destination for outdoor activities and wine tasting. This particular house sits in a great South Richland location, just minutes away from great wineries, restaurants, and the Columbia River.

What makes this house unique

You will not find a nicer vacation property in the Tri-Cities. The hosue is maintained and cleaned to the owner's high standards, is tastefully decorated and has great amenities. No detail has been overlooked. The house features 2 outdoor seating areas. The enclosed side yard is shaded in the late afternoons and has a patio table and gas bbq. There is also a small table and chairs on the front porch. There is a great walking/biking trail that starts just 2 blocks from the house and goes for miles through neighborhoods, shopping and wine tasting rooms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rented this house for three days while attending a family wedding in Richland and what a perfect choice! We were welcomed with a basket filled with coffee, popcorn, snacks, etc! The house is pristinely clean, has inviting decor, and the owners have put in that extra touch to ensure you will feel right at home. Nice washer/dryer with supplies if needed, extra small appliances, even an electric sandwich grill! Small patio with a bbq and table/umbrella/4 chairs. It feels like a home away from home. QUIET neighborhood. Pleasant yard. Easy access to the entire Tri-cities area. You won't be disappointed.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our 2 adult children stayed for 6 nights over Christmas and really enjoyed this property. It was very cold outside but we stayed warm and cozy. The kitchen is very well stocked and we cooked every day. The house is in a great location and access to freeways and shopping is excellent. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms were quiet. We highly recommend this property.
