Thank you for taking the time to learn about our beautiful vacation rental. We moved to Hood River in September of 2011 not sure how long we were going to stay, or where we would live. After three years of traveling for our careers, we decided it was time to be in one place for a while. We found this home and couldn’t resist the opportunity to create a welcoming place for visitors to the Gorge.
Both of us have had the opportunity to travel around the world. For Dave, the US Navy gave him the chance to experience new cultures while serving our country. After ten years as a Helicopter Crew Chief, he decided it was time for a change of pace. Taking a position with Insitu has allowed him to continue to work within the military sector while giving us the flexibility to live anywhere in the world. For me, after more than six years directing the sales and marketing for my families winery in Sonoma, it was time to move on. Armed with an education in business and fashion design and ten years in branding, sales and marketing, I took the move to Hood River as an opportunity to find a new challenge. Today, I put my experience to work in a number of ways: WineDTC Expert Consultant, Business Development Advisor, the Style Blogger for La Crema Winery, managing our investment properties and selling my small line of women’s wear.
This was a distressed property that we purchased at an auction. It is in a fabulous neighborhood close to downtown, but needed some major TLC. It was just the kind of challenge that we crave.
Today, the house boasts brand new kitchen appliances, new ventless hypo-allergenic HVAC, new paint, new landscaping, new fireplace and our personal touches in every room. Our goal was to create a home away from home for our guests. After traveling the world and experiencing all manner of accommodations, we knew our vacation rental had to give added value without added cost. The little things that count, such as pill-top and memory foam mattresses, plush bedding and a kitchen equipped for an almost professional chef are just some of the perks of staying with us.
Hood River is the ideal jumping point to take in the Columbia Gorge. Outdoor activities abound here with wind surfing, skiing, hiking, biking and more. Being within an easy waking distance to downtown, you can get the best of nature and a quant downtown with great restaurants, bars and shopping. Perfect for the whole family!
