About Rick and Denise Karvasales

This is our home and we love it. It really feels like a year around vacation to us. Many of our guests have felt the same way. Read some of the reviews.

Cheers Rick and Denise.

Rick and Denise Karvasales purchased this house in 2007

Why Rick and Denise Karvasales chose River West

It has the greatest views we have ever seen. There are no phone wires or cables obstructing our views. At night the city lights of Bend lite up. We sleep with the french doors open at night and love the moon and the stars. It feels miles away but is within 5 minutes to our favorite locations in Bend Such as Drake Park, Shevlin Park Farewell Bend Park (River Rafting), Phils Trail Mountain Biking, Old Mill Movie Plaza, Les Schwab Amphitheater, Mt. Washington Road Bike Route. Fly Fishing on the River, Awbrey Butte Tennis and Golf Courses and the Athletic Club of Bent. Also 5 Minutes to the Gateway to Mt. Bachelor Ski Area and 30 Plus Scenic Lakes.

What makes this house unique

Family of Deer in the Yard, City Light Views at Night. Southwest Exposure. Proximity to All of Bends Most Enjoyable Activities. Last But Not Least the Peace and Serenity.

Stunning views from a stunning house

  • 5 of 5

Recently had the pleasure of renting this house over Memorial weekend in Bend, OR. The ad stated how great the views were but we were all blown away once we got here.

First off, the house is amazing - very open, spacious and well cared-for, with hardwoods throughout the great room, large bedrooms and great bathrooms. The five bedrooms easily housed all our party and the hot tub was great.

But the views! The house has 3 separate decks, one off the master, one off the kitchen and the main one off the "family/game room" that holds the hot tub. Each deck had it's own special feel and views to offer. You could find a quite place on one deck away from the group in the hot tub to read a book, enjoy some coffee and bask in the central Oregon landscape.

Equally as impressive are the owners. They were very easy to work with, had a simple process for signing up for the place and had great communication.

If you are looking for a great experience in a great town, look no further than this place.

Thanks Rick and Denise.

Excellent space

  • 5 of 5

The owners are very responsive to questions. The house is open and spacious, and it was really wonderful to be bale to relax on the comfortable couches in the living room and enjoy the view with a fire in the fire place. All of the bedrooms felt private and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked for easy home cooking. A++

Comfortable and located close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in the middle of January and enjoyed it. We were in town for a conference and it was close to the convention center where our meetings were held which was a great perk. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably and a great fireplace that we enjoyed in the evening. I would recommend this place again.

Owner's Response: Yeah! Lots of snow outside on your visit, so I'm glad you got a chance to enjoy our fireplace! (That big beautiful slate fireplace was one one the many reasons I couldn't resist buying this home:) Thank you for the kind review and please think of us again on your next hops convention!

Loved our Bend Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time! The house is so beautiful, more than enough room for our families with the kids. Loved the downstairs game room for them to play, the pool table, hot tub and floor to ceiling windows were breathtaking, especially laying in the living room watching the snow fall, so peaceful!!!

Denise and Rick were so helpful and always texted/emailed right back with answering all of our questions and even during our stay helped us a ton! We will be back and can't wait to see Bend in the Summer now:)!

Love, the Duguay's

Our Bend Stay

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in this home for a wedding in Bend. I cant say enough about how amazing this house was. The floor plan is wide open, the views are amazing and the neighborhood is nice and quiet. We had a couple groups of friends who rented other homes in the area and our home was by far the best for the price! I plan on re-visiting Bend in the future and hope this home is available!
