About Toni Amell

My husband and I live in Western Washington now but I went to high school in Selah. Selah has the samll-town feeling I love with fast easy access to everything anyone would want to do; wine tasting is especially good.

Toni Amell purchased this house in 2006

Why Toni Amell chose Washington

This is our second home purchased so that we may spend time with our grandchild who lives in Selah with his father.

What makes this house unique

We love the neighborhood where our home is located. It is on a hill looking down on Selah; very safe. The neighbors are good people and we love watching the orchard blossom in the spring and the quail flurry about.

Clean, well stocked and friendly neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while in town for a wedding and we were very impressed. The best part about this house was that it was well stocked with everything we needed, including laundry soap! It was in a great neighborhood with friendly faces and we felt right at home. Since we have family in town, we will definitely stay here again. Very comfortable and plenty of room for our family of 9.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I was very pleased with our stay. The home was very accommodating for our needs. Home had everything you need and much more. The view was pleasant and neighborhood was quiet. I would rank this home a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. The home owner was pleasantly wonderful to work with our needs. We would most definitely rent the home again. It was nice to stay in my hometown of Selah during our stay. Thank you Toni.

Great Weekend in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

This house is Selah is perfect for you getaway to the Yakima area. We traveled as 2 couples, but the place is set up for kids as well. The kitchen is well supplied with cookware and dinnerware. The TV room was a great place to watch TV or just relax and visit after a long day out. The beds were very comfy and the room décor makes you feel at home.

The house very secure (and there is a WA State Trooper that lives in the neighborhood - added bonus!) and the neighborhood is quite new. The location is perfect - it sits atop a hill, giving you great views off the back deck. You are minutes from the interstate and less than a 10 minute drive from grocery, shopping and hiking activities.

Overall, the place is clean, well-kept, modern and the location is ideal for your Yakima Valley getaway. We recommend a stroll through downtown Yakima - Essencia bakery, the coffee shop, Gilbert Cellars tasting room and Cowiche Kitchen restaurant. If visiting wineries; Treveri Cellars in Wapato, Two Mountain, J Bell and Cultura in Zillah are all fantastic stops. Enjoy your Yakima vacation!

Nice property out in Selah

  • 5 of 5

A family wedding in Yakima brought extended family together for a 3 day weekend. We had 7 people ranging in ages from 20 to 72. The 4 bedroom/3 bedroom home is very comfortable, clean, spacious and easily allowed family members to have their own space when needed. The kitchen is well stocked. The only missing item is a coffee grinder! We were 15-20 minutes away from activities in Yakima. We also enjoyed hiking and mountain biking at beautiful Cowiche Canyon 20 minutes away. The neighborhood is very quiet and has a lovely view of Mt Adams from the front porch. We had one maintenance issue and it was taken care of immediately by the owners. Would definitely recommend this home for a vacation stay.
