Kathy's house was lovely and a great place to stay. She called beforehand and just wanted to say welcome since they would be out of town. Communication was good, entry to property no problem, and she even left a bottle of wine as a house warming gift.
We primarily used the house as a base and were gone hiking mostly all day. Pictures were accurate, but house was really spacious and well decorated.
We stayed at this property because it was in close proximity to our friend's home. The property was awesome. Kathy, the owner, was always prompt, professional and friendly. The home was very clean and newly remodeled with everything we needed. We will absolutely stay here again during our next visit to Bend.
Kathy made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our time at her home. Everything was clean and exactly as described. The house was beautiful and exactly what we needed. We'd be happy to stay there again!
We had a great time staying at Kathys place. She is quick to respond to communication. We enjoyed the backyard and the large kitchen. The house is exceptionally clean. There is one king bed and one queen bed for sleeping arrangements.
We loved this place! Kathy provided great information and had notes all around anticipating any questions that might come up. The house was very comfortable (between the AC and the mattress, I slept like a baby), the kitchen provided lots of space for cooking, and the hot tub was a nice treat. It worked out well for us to be so close to Tumalo State Park, Trader Joe's, and the Riverwalk - I highly recommend this space!
This is an amazing house in a great location. The house is super clean, has a beautiful backyard and hot tub and the hosts (Kathy) is very quick with responses in communication and takes great care of her guests needs. Thank you Kathy for being such an awesome host!
Kathy's home was very comfortable for our party of 3 and our dog. The house was better than its pictures on this site. It was convenient to many Bend area attractions and amenities via short drive, cycle, or walk/run on Deschutes River Trail. Communication was easy with Kathy as well. We would reserve again!
