About Ashlie Duilio

My family recently moved to beautiful Bend, OR after about 20 years in Portland. We are happily adjusting to a slower paced lifestyle with lots of outdoor recreation. I have 3 daughters and one son who is at OSU. We love hiking, paddleboarding and eating! Vacation homes are a great fit for traveling with a large family and we have enjoyed meeting many wonderful hosts and enjoying local restaurants and shops in a neighborhood atmosphere. Feel free to ask me for suggestions on where to eat and play!

I've been managing premier vacation rentals in the PNW for over 15 years. You can see more of my listings at

What makes this house unique

My girlfriend and I spent three days in this lovely and spacious home on the water. It is gorgeously decorated and well equipped, making it a truly enjoyable experience. The water views are amazing day and night, and the Ballard neighborhood close by is filled with restaurants and shops to enjoy. The kitchen provides a gourmet experience and the large TVs are great for a glass of evening Washington wines. Hats off to the owners for the cleanliness and high quality of this home. A MUST STAY!!!

What a house! What a view location!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded all of our expectations. Everything in it says luxury, and the location is absolutely spectacular. We could have stayed inside and stared at the view the entire time and loved every minute of our stay. But the location is so amazing, we enjoyed the Ballard Farmers Market, Stoneburner, Hotcakes, and just browsing the cool shops on Ballard Ave. It was truly a wonderful trip.

Amazing Romantic Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently took our honeymoon to Seattle and stayed here at this classy and very beautiful home! I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had while there! The home is definitely gorgeous and has the most breathtaking views I've ever seen from every room! I loved having my morning coffee sitting on the couch in the living room and looking out the window across the water and seeing the snow covered mountains. In fact it was so enticing I had my husband take me across the ferry and drive up to Port Angeles and go up to actually see the mountain in person! The king size bed in the master bedroom was super comfy and we had a very relaxing stay. We were definitely NOT Sleepless in Seattle! Haha! I can't say enough about how helpful Ashlie was for us! The goldfish pond out front was very neat! The shower was awesome and there was plenty of room in the master bathroom to spread out all of my belongings and get ready for the day! The t.v. in the master bedroom was HUGE and so nice to sit and kick back and relax after a long day of touring the city. The sauna was very cool but we did not use it. The laundry room was very nice as well and it was great to be able to wash clothes before we left! The guest bedroom was gorgeous and very nice if you have more people staying it would be perfect and it has a bathroom as well. I definitely want to stay here again when I come back to Seattle! We were close enough to drive into the city with our rental car and we also used a car service to pick us up on New Year's Eve so we didn't have to worry about parking and finding our way to places we wanted to go. Overall I wish I could give this house and our stay 10 stars because I will always cherish my wonderful Honeymoon in Seattle! Thanks again so much Ashlie for letting us stay in this wonderful home! Maybe this summer I can come back up and kayak! Heather and John Miller
