What nice accommodations! Our visit was perfect. The location is near enough to everything that we wanted to do in Bend and very easy too find when arriving the first times. We would definitely stay here again and recommend the Desert Dweller to friends!

My name is Lara and I am an avid outdoor enthusiast. Hiking, Swimming, Skiing, Rafting and Roller Derby are among my favorite Central Oregon activities. Hence why I choose Bend, Oregon as a great retreat. The weather here is fantastic with no shortage of sunshine or outdoors. Being an Oregon native, I am very familiar with the area and a great resource for what to do and where to go, just ask!

My dog is a great travel companions and I love to take him with me where ever I go. I feel that dogs are a part of my family and nothing is better than being welcomed with dogs when I travel and welcome your pets at my condo!

GREAT CONDO!! EVERYTHING WE NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
My adult daughter and I stayed at the darling Bend condo for one week. It had everything we could possibly need and then some. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook different kinds of meals, and we did! Lara also had enough paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, and dish soap to get us through a few days. It was nice not to have to run to the store immediately! The condo was also very, very clean! The hair dryer works really well and the water in the shower is hot and fast! This condo was very convenient to everything in town. We had a fun week in Bend and at Lara's condo! Thanks, Lara!

VERY COMFORTABLE, PLEASANT.AND EFFICIENT.

  • 5 of 5
Everything one might need to be comfortable, while away from home, was provided. Beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of blankets, towels, etc. Condo is not downtown and one must drive to most areas of interest, still, I would stay again. Lara was accommodating, informative, and easy to work with. Good value, good comfort, and a very good time.

PROMPT REPONSE FROM OWNER

  • 5 of 5
I received a call from Lara almost immediately after emailing about a reservation. She was prompt and a pleasure to work with through the reservation process. I unfortunately had to cancel my reservation a few months before our rental period due to travel changes, and Lara was understanding and quickly processed a refund for me. Although I was not able to stay at her property, I highly recommend her for her attentive and streamlined rental process.

WHAT A CHARMER, BOTH LOCATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
The listing was spot on, for both locations we have stayed at. The owners are easy to work with, and the properties are completely turn-key. I feel so at home! The furnishings, and overall conditions are immaculate, spotless and very well done.
I would recommend these locations to anyone, families and pets especially. You just don't find preparation like these properties have been given.
Oh, and the bath tub in the Mill property is divine.... But, it is two story, not ADA in this property. But what a location, view, tub and great stay await you there.

WET BUT WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a great time in Bend in part because of the wonderful location of this rental. We walked every morning to the Mill District along the river for coffee. The river walk from here took us into the downtown area. Very friendly owners gave us a wonderful list of eating places and things to do.

The decor was a fun ski theme indoors and out.

Thanks for a great time.

GREAT CENTRAL LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
This was a great location for my Mother during her visit. We were able to have a small family reunion in the nearby park. I would pick her up every day from my home south of town and we would sight-see various locations in the area. A great all around restaurant is Caldera downtown on Bond Street. Although the exterior of the units have little curb appeal the condo was very clean and well stocked and my Mom commented on how quiet it was. We found the Larkspur trail at the end of the block, highly recommended for a morning or evening stroll!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words Mary. I am so glad you and Mom had such a great visit! Bend is truly magical.
Thank you for the restaurant recommendation, that's a new one to me and I will check it out.
We will be doing some exterior maintenance in the next month or two to improve the curb appeal.
Thanks again and come back anytime!
