About Bill Kendrick

Born in California, I was raised in Oregon to get away from the hustle and bustle of" big city life". For the past 25 years, I have made the PNW my home and wouldn't live anywhere else.

Bill Kendrick purchased this house in 2013

Why Bill Kendrick chose Sandy

I bought this house in 2013 because I fell in love with its location to everything. Sandy is the gateway to Mt. Hood. If you're traveling from Portland to Mt. Hood, you'll pass through Sandy on your way. I wanted a location that was between Mt. Hood and Portland. Sandy has grown up throughout the years, but it still offers the best of both worlds without compromising convenience.

What makes this house unique

We have 2 private covered decks that overlook an undeveloped green area above the Tickle Creek Trail. Rain or shine, it's a very peaceful spot to enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning or a grilled meal in the evening.

Beautiful home in a great location for seeing the sights!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two young boys. They never wanted to leave the house because of the theater room and TVs in each of their rooms! 😂? The home is just stunning, the pictures really don’t do it justice! The home is exceptionally clean and very well stocked with toiletries and such. Owners made sure everything was going well and were available to help if needed. Grateful to do our laundry along the way as we head out for the rest of our trip. I would definitely recommend staying here, and would be thrilled to stay again!

Great stay!

Ended up getting in way later than planned. They had left a light on for us which was very thoughtful. This host has thought of everything. Daughter loved the big screen and the movie snacks. Very tastefully decorated and had everything we would need. Wish we came to Oregon more often!!

The photos online do not do this home justice. It is so beautiful and so well kept. The owners are so thoughtful and provided items like shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste and toothbrushes, and even candy and popcorn in the theatre. Every room has a smart TV where they give you access to their huge movie collection. We are already looking at dates that we can return to this home. It was perfect for our family!

fabulous spot for a stay. Great place, great owner

  • 5 of 5

a delightful house...layout and amenities and quiet location. seemingly brand new appliances and furnishings and linens and such. I particularly enjoyed the small but big Home theater system to watch the world cup.

The bigger 'bonus' was working with Bill on various matters coming up to, and through, our stay. He coordinated a time to have me preview the place and then got us in early on our arrival. We were there for a wedding of our son and he was super helpful with some Sandy logistic. he was a geat partner in an important weekend.

The house was very clean, nicely decorated and Bill & Trisha were very thoughtful in several extras they provided. We loved walking the Tickle Creek Trail!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

There are not many choices in Sandy, so to be honest I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised on how lovely the home is. The house is stocked with everything you could possible need. My husband and I stopped at the store on our way to the house to make sure we had morning coffee. Whatever you do don't buy sugar. There is enough for a lifetime! We added our bag to the other 5 or 6 unopened ones in the pantry. There are more spices in the cupboard than I have at home. They have a movie theater downstairs with really new movies and the system is very easy to use in case you aren't very tech savvy. The beds are super comfortable. The entire house is spotless and all the furnishings are brand new. I would recommend staying in this home.
