About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Directly on the Big Deschutes River! From the moment you arrive, you know 'this is it,' your perfect get away retreat.

You have direct access to the river off the lower deck, for canoeing, kayaking, floating, or fishing. There are boat docks a short distance down the paved path for easy launching and take out if you prefer. Several miles of paved bike paths and additional trails in nearby forest land are all accessible off the back deck.

The pool, fitness room, and playground are across the street and close enough to see from the driveway. From the pool you can see the tennis courts if you want to work up a sweat before you swim. Two adult mountain bikes, tennis gear, and table tennis equipment have been provided for your enjoyment.

In the wintertime there are plenty of trails for cross country skiing or snow showing from the front door. Mt. Bachelor is less than 30 minutes away if downhill skiing, snowboarding, or even dog sledding is more your idea of a great time.

You are only a 10 minute drive from the Sunriver Resort for shopping, dining out, golf, spa, waterpark, horseback riding, and additional bike trails if you want to visit there.

Downtown Bend is about 25 miles. But you will enjoy coming back home to a place that is much less crowded and more private.

The greatroom with its attached large kitchen and adjoining deck provide the perfect space for everyone to socialize together. The large open space allows you to cook, watch TV or chat with everyone while preparing your own meals. The kitchen is stocked with all the basic essentials to make cooking your own meals an easy option.

There are two bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs; one full bathroom upstairs and one full bathroom downstairs. The downstairs bathroom also has a washer and dryer for your convenience. With a king, two queens, a twin set, and two convertible chairs, you have a variety of sleeping options. To ensure comfortable rest during your stay, we use only high thread count linens for bedding – we want your sleep to be extra comfortable after long hard days of playing!

Extensive remodels were completed in 2011 and 2015 that included: walnut and tile flooring throughout, granite and tile counter tops, 500+ square feet of mahogany decking, roofing, picture windows, high-density insulation, pillow-top mattresses, furniture, urban-country décor, and fresh paint inside and out.

Please, be our guest; let our home be your home for a few days, a week, or longer if you can. We would be delighted to share the beauty of Central Oregon with you – and a home that will help you create the kind of memories you will relish for a lifetime!

About Connie

We (Connie and Larry) are life-long residents of the Northwest. We feel blessed to have grown up and live in such a beautiful area, where quality of life is valued. We enjoy a large family and being engaged in the community in which we live and work. Throughout our lives, we have had the opportunity to vacation with our family and friends and are grateful for all of the special memories that were created. It is our hope that our 'home away from home' will provide others a place to create their own lasting memories –a special place where family and friends can gather to slow down, reconnect, and really enjoy each other’s company. A place where body, mind, and spirit can be refreshed and simple pleasures appreciated. That’s the intent and ambiance of this home.

Connie purchased this villa in 2012

Why Connie chose Central Oregon

We reside in the Willamette Valley but have traveled to Central Oregon for work and pleasure for many years. We appreciate the diversity of activities afforded by the area from the winter snow to the summer sunshine. It was our desire to locate a home in Central Oregon, specifically located on the beautiful Deschutes River, where we could gather with our family and friends and continue to build our own special memories. We wanted a location that was perfect to stay put and relax or to use as a base camp for the many day trip opportunities. This was it. A lovely home. A quiet, family-oriented community. The tranquility of the Deschutes River flowing by.

What makes this villa unique

The pace is more relaxed and more private than the big resorts. We like being able to participate in all the action when we want to, but still be able to retire to a quiet place when we want to simply hang out together.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The home was fantastic and the Owners were friendly, easy to contact, and very helpful. Despite not being directly in the 'traditional' Sun River resort, it's only a short drive away for those who need to use the grocery store or utilize the restaurants/bars. Everything else most people like about the Sun River resort (bike paths, pools, etc. ) is also available in the River Meadows neighborhood PLUS the view is better. This home has a direct view of the river and immediate access to the walking/bike path.

All in all, a very family friendly spot and one my family and I already look forward to visiting again in the future. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked and had plenty of space, the deck was spacious, and accommodations across the board met or exceeded our expectations.

Beautiful location and very comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a beautiful, quiet location. Great view of the Deschutes, and perfect access to the river and trail. Comfortable beds/furnishings, lovely view through trees to the river, and 2 large decks. The main living level is on the 2nd floor. Easy access to S. Century Drive and Hwy. 97. Would enjoy staying there again.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this home was PERFECT. We had 3 generations together ranging from 14 to 76 years old for 6 days. It took me a few weeks to select our vacation rental in and around the Sunriver area. When I found this gem, I knew it would be a good match for us. I loved that it was "on the river". My teenage boys fished with Uncle, floated with Dad and rode bikes with Grandma...all just out our door. We loved the quieter setting, a bit away from the hustle and bustle of Sunriver proper. The house was more stocked than I had anticipated, even with the wonderfully detailed list of what would be provided. There were instructions for everything from working the grill (and where we'd find the lighter) to operating the remote blinds. The attention to detail was amazing and much appreciated. The house was super clean and spacious. We loved having the upper and lower decks to relax, read or watch the floaters on the river or the beaver across the way working on his dam. My only complaint? That our vacation ended and we had to go home...but we'll be back!

Relaxing Quiet Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable house! Great location and a quiet neighborhood. Much quieter than staying in Sunriver! You are about 10 minutes from Sunriver and 30 minutes from Bend. This was our second stay. There are many peaceful floating options on the river. There were some things that didn't work this time most likely due to the house being rented a lot. I will let the owner know so hopefully they will be fixed for the next renters.

If you apprciate quality

  • 5 of 5

The people who own this home really know how to put together a house. Often when you rent a house you find that the little things are missing or complicated. In this home everything was accounted for and ready to go. It was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The proximity to Sunriver is excellent and Bend is only 30 minutes away.
