Interaction with Guests
I am a very social "Host" with a very up to date calendar of all of the local happenings. I have lived in Bend for over 12 years and love it more by the minute. If you are bored here then something is wrong...sometimes it's difficult to choose which fun thing to do, too many choices! With my house being in the center of it all you just need to walk out the front door and enjoy this beautiful town! I own a hair salon, so I am very "up" on what's happening around town.Can't wait to point you in the direction you want to go...be it hiking, site seeing, fishing, skiing, theater, beer :) , great food, music , star gazing etc, etc..
What's there not to love about this neighborhood? It could not be better to get the true feeling of Bend and be able to walk to everything!
walk and bike to everything local!
In the winter close access to mountain shuttle
must enjoy animals ( my two large labradoodles and a orange cat named Louie) :0)
Marci was a great host. Her house is huge, with an awesome patio and big backyard. We were not there long enough to really enjoy some of the amenities (including bikes!) but were very happy with our stay. The bed was comfy, the shower hot... plus coffee and a pastry available in the morning.
Staying at Marcis house was like staying with a member of my own family. It was my second Airbnb ever, the first was wonderful but Marcis was a step above. She was so warm and welcoming and made me feel right at home in minutes. I felt like I had known her forever. Her house is decorated beautifully with art work and she keeps it very clean. The bed was very comfortable, I had a marathon to run in the morning and had such a good nights rest. One could not ask for a better location as I was able to walk downtown in just minutes starting off with going through beautiful Drake Park. Marci gave so many suggestions of where to go for food and drinks when asked and even gave me a map which she had made and was so helpful. I love animals and having her 2 pups and cat around made it even more enjoyable and they themselves are quite humorous. I will definitely be going back to Bend in the near future and without a doubt I will be looking to stay at Marcis if her room is available. I was sad to have to leave.
This was our first airbnb experience and we could not be happier. Marci is an excellent host, providing a welcoming and accommodating atmosphere. The home is very nice, providing several seating areas, a nice bed room, comfy bed and a large deck and yard so you can enjoy the Central Oregon weather. The location of the home is ideal. Just about everything you would want to see or do is within a 15 minute walk.
We highly recommend Marci. We will certainly be back!
Marci is a very warm and welcoming host. It felt as if I was staying with a friend or family member rather than a stranger. She and her three pets (Tater, Hazel, and Louie) are all kind souls and provided great company.
The cottage is thoughtfully decorated, cute, and clean. The amenities were sufficient. I did not find myself needing or wanting anything that was not already provided. The location of the cottage is ideal. You can easily walk (or ride one of the available bicycles) to downtown Bend or the Les Schwab Amphitheater.
The only regret I have about my stay at Marci's cottage, is that it was not longer. I hope to return.
Excellent location! Walking distance from downtown and Winterfest. Marci provided great restaurant recommendations; it was so helpful to get the scoop from a local. The online description of Marci's place is spot on. Not being big dog-lovers, having both dogs constantly around wasn't ideal. However her place was so cute, warm, and welcoming; we loved Marci's artwork around the house.
The bar continues to be raised. Marci and her pets are what I consider to be superior hosts- inviting, warm, but respecting privacy. The private room/bath made me feel as though I was staying with family given the comfort. Optimal location. I'd return.
Marci was a wonderful host, she made us feel welcome and comfortable our entire stay. We were greeted with a couple beers and borrowed the beach cruisers to check out the town. She was so sweet, she even made sure we didn't get stuck in the snowstorm when we were gone all day in it! The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The private bath was wonderful. The house was great, had a private entrance and were greeted by two friendly dogs! We'd absolutely stay with Marci again, she directed us to wonderful places in town. Thanks again Marci!!
About the Host, Marci
I have lived in Bend for over 12 years now and love it more every minute. I opened a hair salon in the downtown area 7 years ago. I enjoy sharing my life stories of Bend and beyond from behind the chair. I am very "up" on the local happenings. You can find me at most music venues (especially the outdoor ones), art walks, live theater, hiking the trails, floating the river, enjoying a bon fire and bar b que at my place with friends...you name it.. the list goes on. So much to do here and my house could not be in a better location to enjoy it all right out my front door! I can recommend the best restaurants etc etc...and you can walk from my place to just about any place that you would want to see, If you want to catch the bus to the mountain for skiing/snowboarding..Drake Park, the Old Mill, Breweries, all in my "backyard". Fun and artsy !! I have traveled all over the world and this is one of my favorites for sure. I will look forward to sharing my wonderful place with you :)
