About Chrystal

I grew up in the midwest and now enjoy living in Portland. I love the outdoors and am constantly challenging myself with new activities. I stay in hotels regularly with my job, so when I'm on vacation, I believe a home stay is the only way to go!

Chrystal purchased this house in 2012

Why Chrystal chose Mount Hood

My husband and I enjoy working on fixer homes. This home has such a great vibe. Even on days we were working there, the fresh air and natural setting was enough to instantly cause us to relax!

What makes this house unique

There is a short, 2 block hike to a beautiful spot on the river that is a great place to take in the mountain air and let go of stress.

well-maintained, cozy neighborhood, gorgeous trees, peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids) completely and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely VRBO. We enjoyed all the space, kitchen, new grill, hot tub, and quaint neighborhood. Kids had a blast at the easily accessible community pool. Proximity to day hikes and mt hood was a super plus to renting this accommodation. Check-in and out was easy and well-explained. If our travels take us this direction again, we would not hesitate to stay here.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property to stay at. This home has everything you need for a short or long stay.

The house is in really good shape and has a modern yet comfy feel to it. The bedrooms are comfortable and have more than enough space. The two bathrooms are just right with a full tub and shower. The house is equipped with a washer and dryer inside one of the bathrooms to make it easy to wash your clothes. The kitchen is fully stocked with all kitchen utilities/utensils along with pots and pans. There is a linen closet with more then enough towels, rags, and other bedding needs for you to use.

Outside in the backyard is an awesome hot tub that was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. There is a fire pit in the back yard that we couldn't get started because the wood was all soaked from the rain and snow.

Overall, my family and I would recommend this location to all family's/visitors for whatever needs you have. Chrystal is a great person to communicate with and she makes sure that all your needs are taken care of. Thanks Chrystal!
