HELIOS LEADS THE VACATION RENTAL INDUSTRY:

December 2013, Helios Eco-House is the first vacation rental property in the Pacific NW to accept the cutting-edge crypto-currency called Bitcoin. By accepting Bitcoin, Helios continues to lead the vacation rental industry with progressive ideas & services valued by our guests.

Spring 2010, Helios Eco-House (Helios) became the 1st vacation rental home in all of Oregon to receive the distinction of LEED® for Homes™ Gold certification. The LEED-H Green Building Rating System is the most rigorous & internationally recognized standard for the design & construction of energy-efficient, sustainably-built homes. Gold-level certification assures Helios is an exceptionally energy & resource-efficient property, built with non-toxic materials, respecting the environment in which it was constructed. Helios was also awarded Earth Advantage Institute certification.

During construction, Helios & 4 other homes, participated in the LEED® for Homes pilot program. Due to the economic downturn, the builder didn't complete 3rd party certifications on any of the homes. While some homes may simply claim 'close enough' to LEED status, Helios' property owners recognized the significance of 3rd party LEED certification for Helios. In fact, Helios is the ONLY property of the pilot program to achieve LEED certification.

Helios' SOLAR Photo-Voltaic System Is COMPLETE! With LEED-H-GOLD & Earth Advantage Institute Certifications Already Awarded, The Solar PV Addition Affirms Helios' Prominence As A Bona Fide Green Vacation Rental Home.

We invite you to experience a TRULY green, solar-powered, luxury home - Helios Eco-House.
