Laura was very welcoming and allowed me to have an early check-in, as well as great conversations. I appreciated the local recommendations and how cozy, and nice the room was. I quiet, comfortable pleasure.
The home is located just a few blocks from downtown Bend and I made the most of the location as well.
I look forward to returning.
Had a great experience for my first AirBNB! House was comfortable and clean, host very accommodating and friendly. Much more homey than a hotel. Location was perfect and so close to downtown. Would absolutely stay here again.
We had a great time in Bend, and despite a communication mix-up (on my part) Laura was able to connect with me and make sure that we got in safe and sound! Our room was cozy and the bed was comfy, and mini-kitty's company was an extra bonus :)
Laura made us feel welcome on our 6 day stay near downtown Bend. It was the perfect location, the room was tidy, comfortable and quiet. Just what we wanted.
We highly recommend this AirBnB and will certainly book again if our travels take us through central Oregon.
House is located in a great area, walkable to downtown bend. Laura had great suggestions of places to go. We were in and out of Bend really quick, but the house was great and so was the city. Bed was comfortable, would definitely recommend Laura and Chuck to others!
The house was perfect (location, feel, and everything). The description was honest, and you really can walk right to downtown! I would definitely stay here again.
We (Laura and Chuck) are a mid-30s fun couple. We love adventurous weekend trips, spirited debates at the local brewpubs, a plethora of outdoor activities (biking, skiing, backpacking, sunny-porch-sitting). We work hard, play hard. We love NPR, BBQ’s, friends over for dinner, etc. We are TV free, but we enjoy movies. We love meeting new people!
