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.

Overall, our experience at this home was very positive. A very nice location, relatively close to many beautiful sights in the Bend area. Although we only had a two day visit, we would enjoy coming back in the future

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This home sits looking over a hillside facing south towards the Old Mill District so the view is great day or night. The top floor is amazing, w/ the master bedroom bath suite facing the view and access to a private deck. The other bedroom on the main floor is also nice as is the bath.

The only problem we had w/ the place was sharing one bath downstairs. It would have been nice to have at least another half bath so we could spread out when getting ready.

Loved the game room downstairs which opened onto a large deck w/ a hot tub. This was a wonderful addition to the home!

Everyone in our group had a great time and would love to stay here again!
