Lura was a fantastic host. Flexible and accommodating. Her place really is as great as it looks on the site...maybe even better. Great location - guests have a feeling of being "away from it all" while still being close to it all. I've already recommended it to several local friends as a place to book for guests coming into town for vacations and will make the Wilhelm's place my goto spot whenever I'm looking for lodging for others.
Had a great time. Very helpful & friendly. Even provided an Easter basket. 20 minutes from door to Bachelor parking lot. Will return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Lura in Bend. Our vacation was everything that it should be - relaxing, surrounded by beautiful views and a comfortable place to stay. Luru made us feel at home right away - cookies and chocolate waiting, lots of clear communication and the entire bottom floor of her gorgeous home just minutes from everything we wanted to do in Bend. Loved meeting Roman, the house dog, watching deer and quail in the early mornings and the stars at night. Everything was perfect!
What a wonderful stay. Lura and Bryan could not have been nicer. They were incredibly welcoming and friendly while at the same time giving us our space. We got to relax, disconnect, ski, and play games. The space is large, with plenty of room to unwind. The kitchenette area was perfect for us, but if we wanted to make something bigger, we had permission to use the kitchen upstairs. Lura and Bryan left great instructions on how everything works along with all the nooks and crannies of the house during the tour. Our 8 year old daughter particularly had a wonderful time. She really bonded with their lovely dog Roman, we often found them cuddling together. After a long day of skiing she also enjoyed the whirlpool tub in the bathroom. LOVED IT!!! In fact, she loved it so much, she cried when we left. The house has everything you need, from toiletries, to tea, coffee, etc. We needed for nothing. Can't wait to go back this summer and enjoy summer sports. We had such a wonderful time. THANK YOU.
Lura made us feel welcome immediately. Lura was friendly and fun to talk with and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. The space was amazing with lots of room. We couldn't have asked for a better host and location. Hope to come back again! Thank you Lura!
We had a wonderful time at this amazing property. Lura and Bryan were perfect hosts and we had a great time.
My friend and I went to Bend for a couple of days and had such a wonderful time. Lura and Bryan were fantastic hosts: very hospitable, warm, informative, and welcoming. They made us feel at home and relaxed. The place is unique and in such a quiet and lovely location. This was my first time using airbnb for accommodations and I had a great experience. I will definitely hope this place is available for my next trip down there!
What a beautiful home! Lura was a fantastic communicator with multiple emails and texts. I can’t speak highly enough of this host family, the house is gorgeous, the bathroom is beautiful, is has super trippy stone tiles on the walls; I recommend you take a bath and you will see what I mean. The over-all feeling of the house was super clean and comfortable. We only had the opportunity to spend one night but whished it could have been longer. I would highly recommend this home if you are in the Bend area.
Lura and Bryan were fantastic hosts! First of all, the location is prime for everything that Bend has to offer. They are close to downtown, the house borders mountain biking and hiking trails and getting to Mt. Bachelor was easy and quick.
The House is a beautifully built and energy efficient home with fun features including a loft and a fire pole to slide down!
Lura provided a wealth of info about where to go for hiking, snow-shoeing, and breakfast places. We also enjoyed watching some TV together and chatting about hosting since I also have a place listed on Airbnb.
This place is my number one place to check availability next time I come back to Bend. I highly recommend staying with Lura and Bryan!
This place was AMAZING! An elegant home with an awesome view and only a quick drive away from downtown Bend. The room was perfect: very clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and lots of amenities. We basically had the first floor of the house to ourselves, which included our own garage for parking, a huge, fully stocked bathroom, and a spacious living room with a view for miles.
Lura was an awesome host as well! She was very welcoming and easy to communicate with, she even had a fruit and chocolate plate awaiting us when we arrived! She gave us some great recommendations on where to eat and what to do around the area. And we had plenty of privacy and freedom to go about our weekend. If you are staying in Bend, THIS is the place to stay. We will 100% stay here again next time we're out in Bend! Thanks Lura!
Lura and her family were wonderful guests. Great communication, easy to coordinate with, and left our apartment as clean as they found it. Thx Lura, you're welcome back anytime!
Lura and her daughter were a pleasure to host; both are friendly, well traveled, and easy to talk to. We'd welcome them back next time they come to SF!
Lura and her husband were wonderful guests - they are super nice people, the communication with them was quick and reliable, and they left the apartment absolutely clean and spotless. We wish them all the best, happy traveling, and hope to meet them again some day!
Amazing guests! Lura and her daughter were exceptional guests and wonderful people. We are very lucky to have met them during their visit to WA. They were more than respectful of our house, very clean, very easy & fun to talk with. They both had a zest for life & travel that was great to see. We would recommend them as a guest anytime!
Lura and her husband were considerate, tidy, friendly guests. They took full advantage of the beautiful weather and squeezed in more outdoor activities in two days than I manage in a week!
They are welcome back anytime!
