About Linda Smeins/Richard Bulcroft

We are three long-time friends who have worked together, traveled together and celebrated life's journey together. We love to cook and drink good wine, especially when shared with family and friends. Casa Cavatappi has become our perfect home to indulge these passions

Linda Smeins/Richard Bulcroft purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Smeins/Richard Bulcroft chose South Central

We are wine lovers who have been coming to Walla Walla for the past twenty years, and we continue to enjoy the town's unique blend of casual friendliness, 'down home' character and sophistication. After one memorable visit, when we did not want to go home, we began to look for the perfect home away from home so that we could spend more time here. Having found it, we decided to to share our love and knowledge of this wonderful place with others who appreciate good food and wine. Life in Walla Walla is a blend of casual friendliness, 'down home' and sophistication.

What makes this house unique

The character of the home preserves a way of life; it is about taking time and enjoying life fully.

Great location and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean very well-stocked and very comfortable. It was in a great location near downtown. Perfect for a weekend getaway with friends. The host provided plenty of information on the area and wine tasting close by. Couldn't have asked for more.

Fantastic house for a group - and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our long weekend in Walla Walla! We had the best weekend, and were very happy with the layout of the house, how friendly and helpful Linda was before check-in, and how close the house was to everything - which made for a good walk home after lots of wine tasting :) We will definitely be back!

Spacious home, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great neighborhood a few miles from right downtown. (we used Uber to get downtown and it was less than 10 bucks everytime) The owners were very responsive and nice to work with. The backyard is big and completely fenced in... we had to bring our dogs last minute... I think they enjoyed their stay as much as us. :) There is a nice patio area that we would have loved to use had the weather been better during our visit. We only had 4 in our party, but this would be a comfortable home for 6-9 people. Overall, very happy with our stay here!

Property 608483 Walla Walla craftsman home

  • 4 of 5

This VRBO is in a very central location. Definitely walkable to downtown and through the historic area of homes. There is plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen has everything you need to make a fabulous dinner. The bedrooms are comfortable and there are many options for sleeping arrangements. I would and have already recommended this home to friends.

Extremely pleased!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot in Walla Walla in a wonderful neighborhood and and easy walk to downtown. Beautiful and well-equipped craftsman house built in 1922. Kitchen has been updated and is very functional. Our dog was welcome and enjoyed the backyard. We had an issue with the door keys not working, but the caretaker came over VERY quickly and had more keys made that worked perfectly. We would highly recommend Linda and this house. We had three couples staying.

Charming House with Immaculate Yard

  • 5 of 5

Twelve of us (3 families) stayed in this home over a sunny Memorial weekend. We had plenty of space inside the home, but as it was such nice weather, we spent most of the time lounging on the deck while the six kids rode bikes to the candy store or played in the grassy backyard under the shady tree. As a gardener myself, I appreciated the well-kept yard and roses. The house is very near a fun downtown, but we didn't even do much wine tasting because we just wanted to relax "at home". Very enjoyable stay.
