I have lived on both coasts, the rockies and south Florida but Bend has been by far the best. After 20 years in Bend I had an opportunity to share my favorite spot with others. I started by doing home exchanges all around the country and then last year, when my kids were moving on, I decided to use my riverfront home as a vacation rental. I've made lots of new friends and really enjoy sharing this great area with people from around the world. Watch our VIDEO to see more of what this house and Bend living have to offer.

Brad purchased this house in 2000

The location of this vacation rental can't be beat. We are right in the middle of Bend with urban amenities on the street side of the home and quiet, riverfront living in the back. Some guests never leave the backyard while others are out on the town enjoying all that Bend has to offer. Whether you come to play or just to relax this location will fit your needs. Walk to shopping and fine dining in downtown or the Old Mill District or paddle from your backyard up and down the river. We're also only 5 blocks from the Mt Bachelor Ski shuttle for this winter's great riding! It's all right here for you to enjoy.

JUST AVERAGE AND NOT WELL MAINTAINED - DOES NOT JUSTIFY BEING CONSIDERED A HIGH END RENTAL

  • 3 of 5
The redeeming quality is the location, handy to many of Bend's attractions.
The beds are old and droopy, the linens threadbare or torn. The repair "Punch List" includes front door deadbolt partially working, broken floor tiles, Hot Tub partially functional, cabinet doors maladjusted or broken, carpets vacuumed but dirty, dirty garage, weeds and dead plants, overgrown trees and shrubs, tired old TV's, a kitchen cluttered with every useless appliance ever invented, other peoples spices and flour and pasta boxes on shelves, with too many more items to list. I sat on the deck next to the river - and a lot of weeds. It could have been an even better experience had the yard been appropriately cared for. I would not rate the housekeepers as professional - They do the minimum. I can not feel good vacationing in a stranger's "work in progress". I would not return to this home. My guess is the owner fancy's himself as a fix-it man (as evidenced by all the tools and repair materials in the garage, closets and cabinets) but nothing seems to be repaired properly.

Owner's Response: I honestly don't know why this man was so angry. We seriously considered canceling the reservation before he arrived. That said, some of his points are valid and we are working on making some changes. A new gardener has been hired and the company paid to manage the hot tub has been contacted about keeping the tub properly maintained. Although I recently had it serviced by the company where we purchased the tub and they said it was it in good shape. I went back to look at my expense reports and all of the mattresses were purchased in 2011. I did a walk through today and did not find any broken floor tiles ???? My housekeepers work for a few of the local vacation rental owners and we all love her. What can I say? Yes, I do have a lot of small appliances in the kitchen, I'm a past restaurant owner, geez, sorry big fella. And yes, I do "fancy myself a handyman", don't all real men? I built the house and 25 years with a general contractor's license makes me a bonafide handy man doesn't it? All I can say is read the rest of the reviews, I take good care of my customers and I have a huge amount of return visits. I have to admit this was a wake up call for me and after 5 years of leasing to more than 80 groups per year perhaps the house is in need of some TLC. We're professionals and we want our clients to have a wonderful experience. Next time I'll go with my gut feeling and maybe not take the reservation. Sorry, but this review really seemed to be a personal attack. In all fairness I googled reviews on his professional life and RUDE RUDE RUDE was a recurring theme. Oh well, I'll try harder and I thank you for the review.

UNBELIEVABLE VACATION PROPERTY/TOWN

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daughter, and dog once again returned to Bend for some fantastic recreating, and for the first time, stayed at this absolutely perfect rental property. The second we walked into the home we knew it would be a vacation to remember. The main floor/kitchen area is ideal - open, yet some nice quiet sitting areas by the fire, and a great view of the river. The upstairs had a cool rec room and the master bedroom was an unreal sanctuary. Throw in a hot tub, a great bbq area, and your own dock, and it's a place you will not want to leave. The service we received was prompt and professional - couldn't ask for more. We have used vrbo quite frequently in the past, and this truly is a 5 star at very good value.

ENJOYABLE FOR A LARGE GROUP

  • 5 of 5
I found this vacation rental on the internet. And I am very glad I did. We want to say "Thank you!" to Brad for a wonderful vacation spot. All our friends who stayed here for the week were extremely happy with this home. When I asked them, each one said they would happily stay here again.The home is very lovely and even larger than the impression given to us by their video. The location is ideal - easy to walk into old town Bend or to shops and restaurants. Enjoyed walking just a few blocks to access the trail system along the river also..
My only advice to renters is to keep your group to 6 adults. The only reason I say that is because the two King size beds and the queen size bed were comfortable - but the queen sofa bed in the game room wasn't ideal. The two adults who slept on the sofa bed said maybe kids wouldn't mind it though.
All in all we had a GREAT vacation in this very nice home! :)

BEND RIVER HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful house right on the river. We were there on Labor Day weekend and sat outside on the dock and watched all manner of rafts float by, they all thought we were owners and said how lucky we were. It is a great place in a beautiful location. It is the most people friendly and pet friendly place that I have ever been. If I didn't love living in La Jolla so much I would move there. Although you might need to be an electrical engineer to figure out the lighting system.

PERFECT SETUP

  • 5 of 5
Family came to Bend for our daughter's graduation and this house was perfect for their stay. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably, and the kitchen and dining areas and outdoor grills allowed for us to prepare great meals there. The weather was excellent and the location was perfect. The dock on the river was especially enjoyable - watching the mother duck and her ducklings as well as lots of friendly floaters passing by. The family was very impressed and is already planning to return next year for our other daughter's graduation. We would recommend this great home to anyone who wants to experience Bend at it's best.

WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The house is amazing, but still homey. The game room was very child friendly and the location is ideal. We walked to downtown and to the amphitheater with no problem. Highly recommend. We'll be back.
