Tom and Melinda were OUTSTANDING hosts! They made us feel welcome and right at home. We had the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine and great conversation with them as well! They are an amazing couple and we truly enjoyed our time in their beautiful home. The listing was accurate, the rooms very clean, the bed comfortable and the food outstanding. The suite is more beautiful in person. The pictures don't quite capture the love and attention to detail that this room offers. It is a great destination and Tom and Melinda make the visit even more special!
Tom and Melinda are absolutely WONDERFUL hosts. This was my our first AirBnB experience, and Tom set the bar HIGH!
The entire home was immaculately clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, and Tom and Melinda offered us hospitality in every way. They accommodated our coming and going (as we were attending a conference all weekend, so came and left a lot), and even made excellent recommendations for things to do around Sunriver. Ryan and I will definitely return to Tom and Melinda's home next time we visit Sunriver.
My last note is that Melinda cooked some stellar breakfasts for us. Fresh veggie omlettes and sausage on our first morning, and walnut waffle with homemade peach syrup on our second morning. So yummy, and all served with a smile.
I highly recommend that you stay with Tom and Melinda when you visit central Oregon!
Tom and Melinda are FANTASTIC hosts!! They made me and Jackson (my dog) feel so welcome and at home! The bed is super comfy. The room is very private, private bath, big closet, and a beautiful view looking out onto the golf course at Sunriver. Melinda went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed - food, coffee, everything. I rode their bike down to the river every morning which was divine. I will DEFINITELY stay with them again. I give them 5 stars and then some!
Thomas and Melinda home is beautiful and we had a truly lovely experience here. The room was gorgeous and comfortable and thomas and melinda were wonderful hosts making us feel very welcome and at home. Breakfast was absolutely delicious!!! We really wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely recommend staying here.
Nancy and Jack, hosting for Tom Melrose, were the most gracious of hosts. They were very friendly, helpful, and generous. The house and room were very high quality with an excellent location and environs. We will definitely go back again the next time we visit Sunriver. It couldn't have been a better experience. 5 Stars!
What a great first experience for airbnb! The room was wonderful - comfortable, spotless, and many small thoughtful touches (wine glasses, corkscrew, nuts for snacking). Melinda made us great breakfasts to send us off to the slopes. We will certainly use airbnb again and plan to visit Thomas and Melinda, too!
About the Host, Thomas
I'm a retired active 82 year old man in good health who worked in the corporate world, mostly internationally (Australia, UK and Switzerland). Have lived here in Sunriver for the past 28 years. Play lots of golf and get in quite a bit of fly fishing. Am a widower but have a lady friend from California who shares my home with me in Sunriver. Melinda is a retired elementary school teacher. She plays golf with me and is quite a good cook. I am sure that you will enjoy her breakfasts.
We now use Airbnb for our own traveling. Our great experiences with Airbnb in Vermont, Washington and South America prompted us to become hosts this June 2014. We will have new experinces to share with OUR guests when we return from Italy in October. We have reserved seven accommodations through Airbnb. Tom's daughter and son-in-law (Nancy and Jack) will be hosting in our absence. They are "people" persons and enjoyed hosting during August when we were gone for a couple of weeks. We can assure you that you will enjoy their company.
