Nice visit to Bend for a conference. House was spacious for our needs and owner was very accommodating. She allowed us to bring our dogs and to let us check-in a tad early. We even text a question during our stay and she responded very quickly. Great trip and great stay.
Gorgeous home! We had a great stag at Kathys home. It was even more beautiful in person than shown in the photos. Kathy was very helpful and responsive. We will be back next tjme we are in Bend.
The description of the property was very accurate and the host was very informative. They had a book describing things to do that were close by and they had very good recommendations of restaurants.
Kathy was a great communicator, quick to respond and very thorough. Their house was exactly as I expected it to be from the photos. It was close to a few markets, and easy to get from there to everywhere in Bend. It was really clean and restful.
My stay was even better than anticipated! Driving up to the home looks exactly the same as the picture. Its a charming home in a very quiet culdesac but very close to downtown Bend which makes it a very convenient location. Upon walking into Kathy's home it felt like I was walking into a home that was staged to be sold! Everything was absolutely perfect. Kathy even left a nice notebook filled with her contact information, her personal reviews on different restaurants, as well as numerous brochures to local attractions and eateries. I will be staying there again soon since I travel to Bend regularly for business.
