Our west side two bedroom cottage is located in a very quiet neighborhood just 2 blocks from Deschutes River trail/kayak rapids. Sip coffee on front deck, picnic on back deck. With 1000 sq ft, sleeps four on two queen beds, a double futon mattress for kids. Large kitchen, gas fireplace, AC, new hot tub, fenced yard for dogs, WIFI, cable TV, BBQ. Short 10 min walk to downtown for restaurants, galleries, parks and shopping. Hike or bike miles on the Deschutes River trail directly from the house.

The space

Our small 1924 Bungalow is in a very quiet, family neighborhood within easy walking of downtown. We just painted the outside this Fall (2016) and will paint the entire inside this spring, which will make it easier to clean and brighter. We are dog-friendly, as is the neighborhood, with one of the best walking trails in town a block away. Note that this is not a party neighborhood. Its a family kind of place those those wanting a retreat from noise.

Guest access

We will give you access to a lock box (with a code) with the keys to the front and back doors. Super easy, regardless of when you arrive, to get the keys out of the box (by then you will have the code) and open the back door. You have sole access to the backyard and hot tub.

Interaction with guests

We just moved to back to Bend and live about a mile away. But our daughter and her husband have lived here for the past 7 years and they know all of the best places to mountain bike, ski, camp and hike. Our renters in the back cottage (a separate place) are my niece Ellie and her husband Andrew, with their dog Gary. They help maintain the yard, shovel walks, take out garbage, and answer questions.

We also stay close to our email and phones if you need anything.

Other things to note

This is a friendly, quiet neighborhood so please respect our neighbors. We want to ensure that the Second Street Bungalow is an asset to the neighborhood. Please clean up well after dogs and keep them from barking. And no loud late-night parties, please! In case you didn't get that message already! :-) We have a couple of bikes in the basement you can use, as well as tubes you can float the river with.

Colette. No worries, Ellie didn’t DNR even mention it to me! We have a dog, Simon, who would do the same thing! It’s all good.

John and Sally's house was just what we were looking for when we booked a weekend away with my Husband and In-Laws and our pups! The house was very clean and well kept. The yard was perfect sized and though we did not use the hot tub (forgot our swim suits) we wished we would have! We cooked in and they had all the cooking utensils that we needed, and the BBQ worked great! The house was a quick walk to downtown Bend in one direction and to the Deschutes River Trail in the other direction! We had a wonderful time! Thank you John and Sally! :)

We had a wonderful stay at the Second Street Bungalow. The house is exceptionally equipped. Loved the air-conditioning on those super hot days that we had. We would not have survived the heat and the smoke from the fires without it.

Fantastic house!!! Sally and John are wonderful hosts. Their house is lovely, charming, and comfortable. It is an easy walk to downtown Bend, and Uber is readily available if you don't have a car. The neighborhood is residential and very peaceful and quiet.

The second street bungalow is wonderful. It is a great space for a small family. The yard and patio are lovely. It is very centrally located. The home is clean and offers everything you might need while away from home. The hosts are lovely and extremely accommodating. We highly recommend this rental.

John And Sally User ProfileJohn And Sally is a superhost.

We bought this house in August 2013 and are moving back to Bend from Colorado in the Summer 2017, having just bought a house near Newport Market. John is a retired Oceanographer whose last project involved the BP oil spill restoration in the Gulf of Mexico. Sally works in international forestry and travels around the world a lot for her work, which concerns both human rights and conservation. She's mostly working on issues like deforestation in the Amazon, getting rights to forest lands for Indigenous People, addressing governmental corruption, and looking at innovative markets for environmental services like clean water and carbon. We hike, mountain bike, telemark ski and road bike, among many other hobbies. We raised our daughter In Bend, so have tons to resources to offer a renter, from restaurants to hikes to great galleries. We are invested in the community of Bend, are proud of how it has managed growth, transportation and general quality of life.

The Bungalow is a block from our daughter Casey and her husband Pete, who help us manage the property along with our niece, Ellie and her husband Andrew, who live in our back cottage. All are available at short notice to give help and advice.

We love Airbnb, use it when we travel overseas and in the US. Hosts are friendly and we have found guests to be wonderful people. We like its simplicity and reliability.
