We are generally around. Emilie runs the adventure travel business from home but is often gone on trips or at meetings during the day. We are happy to hang out in the evenings or give you space to have the lower level of the house to yourself. When John is available, he is happy to provide basic bike maintenance if you are about to hit the road or trails.
It's a quiet neighborhood. Great access to everything about Bend and Central Oregon, but you will sleep well here as it is quiet like a rural area.
There is no public transportation in the area and you must have your own vehicle. There are several car rental companies available at Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) which is only 10-15mins away. There is plenty of parking in the driveway as well as two dedicated spots in front of the house.
FYI for those who are allergic, we have a cat on the premises. She is pretty elderly and friendly. :-)
It was our first time to Bend to celebrate my birthday and My wife & I had a great time.
Emilie and John were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable to this area. We stayed there very comfortably. We went skiing for 2 days and Painted Hills for another days. It is very convenient to access Mt Bachelor, John Days, Smith Rock, etc. It also has a quiet neighborhood as well.
All in all, it's the great vacation / birthday I've had! We will definitely come back in the future.
I love this place. I had never been to Bend before but it's my favorite place in the world now and this host was an awesome place to stay - very tranquil, nestled in nature, clean and the host was very helpful in directing me to the best outdoor activities. Emilie is a travel guide and owns an adventure travel company. She is also a mountain and rock climber and her partner is a bicyclist and a bike repair technician. I really couldn't have asked for more. It was super quite, close to Smith Rock and the mountains, and also a quick jaunt to downtown, where parking is a piece of cake. It's the most relaxing vacation I've ever had! I will definitely come back.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
