Eric and Nicki
Just finished my first trip to Bend Oregon with my new fiance. This is also my first experience with Airbnb, and our stay was wonderful! When we first drove up to the property, we met the house manager (Cindy), and she made us feel right home. The entire property had ALL the comforts of home. The kitchen had all the extras, including spices and condiments, coffee and even bubbly for my morning mamosas! The Beds were very comfortable and the jacuzzi worked flawlessly. I like my water temp hot and this one can be set up to 104 degrees. After a day of fly fishing on the Mc Kenzie river we had the most amazing fish fry imaginable... We entertained friends on the patio while I poached some of our fresh rainbow trout in champagne, fresh squeezed orange juice and mint. I did this on the deluxe five burner BBQ while at the same time frying the rest of the trout in olive oil, light seasonings and a dash of rosemary. The house even has a freezer in the garage with ice and a cooler that we used to bring the fish home. Eric and NIcki thought of Everything!!! My own home isn't as well appointed as this place!
Now a quick word about location, location, location.
I was a little concerned about being a mile or so away from downtown, when I booked this place...
If you are, don't be. The west side rocks! For several reasons in a row.
First is the neighborhood. It's quiet, peaceful and just a few blocks uphill from some of the best dining, shopping and pubs in ALL of Bend.
No kidding. The Ten Barrel Pub was singular. The "little" country market at the bottom of the hill is Spectacular!!! The name escapes me... but you can't miss it. The place screams "Come shop here !!!" I wish we had one of these is west LA. We don't. This place blows bristol farms and the pavilion out of the water! Unbelievable wine (you have to try the local pinot gris/noir) and beer selection, fresh baked bread and deli. And if you're into organic.... your home! Tired from a day of shopping, or floating down the river and want to just throw something into the oven, try the lasagna take out from the local organic store, "Devoure".
As for, getting around town... We chose to rent electric bicycles.
They were a bit pricey,but well, well worth it. The hill is a bit steep and the small electric motor handled the task with flying colors. The trip to downtown from this house is about 4 minutes by car. If you do it on a bike... you won't even think to check... The ride (URL HIDDEN) beautiful.
So take a moment...
Then take a chance, and take it from me....
Our beautiful house!
