Very nice rental. Would definitely stay here again. Matt was responsive. The house and yard have been well thought out. Excellent use of space, nice decor. Highly recommend.
Our hosts sent us a text the day before check in, to make sure we didn't have any last minute questions. They left a hand written note welcoming us to their home and even surprised us with some local beers in the fridge!! This scored major points with my husband; it was a great personal touch!
The decor in K house is perfect. Although I never met the hosts in person, i bet they are very cool. At any rate, they have fabulous taste. We had family staying at various rentals around Bend, and everyone who came over raved about our find! The rooms are sleek, beds and bedding very comfortable, the bathroom was reminiscent of a high end, spa-like hotel. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials. The layout of the house and backyard make it feel spacious; it would be a perfect space to host a dinner party.
The neighborhood is still a bit transitional, but this house is fabulous. It feels safe, though and is definitely walking distance to many stores, etc..
We are a family with young children and this home worked well for us. We have 1 yr old twins (double trouble) and had to put up a few breakables, but not many. There was a baby gate we used to block off the lounge area where the bookshelf and computer might have proven a little too tempting to double trouble. The kids loved running outside in the fully fenced yard. this house was great for our family of five. It's cozy, but we kept saying what a great use of space it is- it really does feel so spacious. We loved soaking in the hot tub and even used the fire pit one night.
K house has it all; it is the perfect Bend vacation house! Thanks for sharing it with us!
Matt & Devon's place is fantastic. Everyone loved the look of the place, the great backyard area, and how easy it was to get around Bend from the house. Matt & Devon were very responsive and welcoming. Being able to use the mountain bikes to explore a bit of Bend was especially nice. The next time I'm in Bend I will definitely be trying to stay here again. This is definitely one of my favorite airbnb places that I've stayed at.
We had a great time staying here! We stayed for 8 nights and all was exactly as advertised. House was nicely furnished and beds were all comfortable. Fenced yard was great for our dog and we all enjoyed the patio, fire pit and hot tub. We had a full house for 3 nights and a 2nd bathroom would have come in handy, but we made it work. Kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/dishes so we really only had to bring food and clothes.
Thanks to Matt & Devon for the great house and problem free vacation. We will definitely keep this listing handy in case we ever get back to Bend!
Matt and Devon's home in Bend was a wonderful place to spend the long weekend. This clean, spacious ranch home had all of the amenities described and more. The back patio was a great place to eat a meal. My friends and I really enjoyed the hot tub, and though we didn't use the fire pit we meant to take advantage of it! Our dogs loved the fenced in, grassy backyard. Beds were comfy and there was plenty of space. We were a short drive from downtown Bend as well as several great hikes. I would highly recommend this airbnb!
K house was such an awesome place to stay. It was homey yet modern. I loved the mod decor and everyone in our party of 5 found the bedrooms to be spacious comfortable. We really loved the spacious back yard and patio and utilized the outdoor fire pit and hot tub several times. We also cooked a meal and used the grill and stocked kitchen which was great. Having the roku and paid Netflix and Hulu subscriptions was also great- a bonus was HBO Go which none of us has at home. Location was great, just a short drive or bike ride to downtown and walking over to hike pilot butte was fun. My friends kept saying "good find" which made me feel good and should encourage you to think of K house for your next Bend adventure!!
This house was great! I cannot say enough good things.
It was a perfect base for adventures around Bend. It is well within walking distance of many breweries, and is only two blocks from the best breakfast and lunch cafe in Bend, Rockin Dave's. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, and plenty of space for hanging out eating lounging, and socializing. The outdoor fire pit was super nice, and the hot tub was wonderful after a long day of adventures. We took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen a few times, and found everything we needed.
Even though my family has a condo on the other side of Pilot Butte, I will be staying at this house the next time I visit Bend.
About the Host, Matt & Devon
After living in Bend for 5 years (and loving it!) we were both drawn back to Portland, Oregon (our second favorite place to live) for new jobs. We wondered what to do with our newly remodeled home in Bend when we were introduced to airbnb. Its a great way to share our place with others since we can't be there to enjoy it full time.
