About Tab Dahl 541-480-6986

We are real estate brokers and investors who love living in Bend. I'm a third generation Central Oregonian and Mark is originally from Hawaii. We love playing golf, skiing, snowboarding, traveling, playing on the river, and enjoying all the fun family activities our area offers. We feel truly blessed to live in such a beautiful place.

The photo of our family was taken in front of our real estate office downtown Bend. Our office sponsored rides on the CYCLE PUB.... What an awesome time.

Tab Dahl 541-480-6986 purchased this bungalow in 1996

Why Tab Dahl 541-480-6986 chose Bend

The Deschutes river and iconic Drake Park make this property extra special. Bend's newest Whitewater Park is just upstream. The riverfront park Miller's Landing is just down the street and Columbia Park, a fun park for kid's..... affectionately called 'Pirate Park' is just down the street and across the foot bridge. The Whitewater Park and The Pavilion are very close. We love how close everything is to this home. This home is great for folks who are looking for that special location in Bend.

What makes this bungalow unique

The little old mill cabin wasn't much when Mark made the offer on it...But the view wasn't so bad. Don't forget to check out the photo of the original mill cabin before the remodel. Although the cabin was taken down to it's studs, a new foundation put in and everything else was replaced, the old feel is still there. The timber which became the mantle on the river rock fireplace was found in the crawl space. We love that old time past residents have showed up and shared their memories with us. We hope you will do too.

Great space for a couple

  • 5 of 5

Walking out into the backyard with the beautiful Deschutes flowing by was just perfect. Walk to downtown and be on the trailhead for a great day of hiking within minutes. Weather was great, despite the smoke from the many fires. The cottage had everything we needed.

Great location, cozy with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We were here over the eclipse for a few days and had a really nice time. A hike out at Smith Rock, even without an eclipse, is really special and not a huge drive. There is a great Natural food store and several breweries and restaurants very close by. It's a small place, but has everything we needed (incl comfortable bed). And the owner is responsive.

Bungalow was great!

  • 5 of 5

Deschutes Dunes Bungalow was great and stocked with everything my wife and I needed for our 5 day stay in Bend. Easy walk to Drake Park, downtown shopping and dining, The Lot, yoga studio, and a number of breweries. Paddle or float the river from Riverbend Park and exit the river right at the Bungalow property, get cleaned up, walk to Drake Park and catch free shuttle back to your car and grab dinner. Amazing and so convenient! I loved having morning coffee on the sunny front porch and saying good morning to the nice neighbors jogging by the house. Close to many of the beautiful Cascade Lakes too and stand up paddling Hosmer Lake was a religious experience. Thanks for the great vacation!
