Credit cards are no longer accepted -pay through HomeAway

NOTE: VRBO / HOMEAWAY NOW CHARGES ALL RENTERS A VARIABLE "SERVICE FEE" WHICH WILL BE INCLUDED WHEN YOU REQUEST A QUOTE.

Here is VRBO / Homeaway's explaination of the service fee...

Overview

The service fee is paid by the traveler when booking through the HomeAway websites. This fee covers the cost of providing 24/7 customer support, enhanced site and mobile features for both owner and travelers, plus expanded marketing efforts to generate more exposure to global audiences. Additionally, when a traveler books and pays through HomeAway, they are eligible for the Book with Confidence Guarantee.

Paying the fee

Travelers pay the service fee by credit card when paying through the secure HomeAway checkout process. The service fee is only charged to the card once the booking has been accepted by the property owner or manager. The service fee is, on average, approximately 6% of the rental amount, excluding refundable deposit or taxes. This fee is lower than other travel websites that charge a similar fee.

Refunding the fee

The owner does not have the ability to discount or waive the service fee amount. The only time the service fee can be refunded is when an owner uses the Cancellation Refund feature from their dashboard and the cancellation is requested within the terms of the owner/manager's cancellation policy. However, if the reservation is not canceled and all payments fully refunded to the traveler, the service fee will not be refunded.


Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

Owner info

About the owner: Don Ptacnik (say-Tack Nick) and Marline were married under the large White Paper Birch located in the yard between The Cottage and their home. Years later, one of our daughters was also married in the yard. That ceremony took place on the small terrace just outside The Cottage. We love our home and the large yard within which The Cottage is located. Between us, we have three adult children and eight grandchildren. Marline is a health care executive and Don, your primary host is Marline's Gardener and Painter. We both enjoy people and sharing our secluded space in Downtown Bend. Don has lived in central Oregon for over 40 years and has participated in a number of activities which has provided him with a broad base of knowledge in the available outdoor opportunities. You are welcome to ask for suggestions ranging from the best hikes, automobile tours, bicycle trails/routes to the hidden jewels of coffee shops, museums and other cultural offerings. We want our guests to be pleasantly surprised by the luxury and charm of The Cottage, the grounds and of course, the overall experience. We recognize guests have numerous choices competing for their entertainment dollars and want to provide excellent value and a memorable experience. When every guest departs our goal is to hear them say ...”We will return and will recommend The Cottage to all our friends”. So far, so good!

Why the Owner Chose River Terrace (Bend, OR, USA):
The proximity to the core of downtown Bend makes The Cottage an idea choice for those wanting to be able to walk to town yet enjoy peace and quite in a secluded setting. The Cottage is located in a very large backyard which features several macro garden environments ranging from formal to natural areas. The Cottage has dedicated on-site parking and a private entry.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Awarded 2014 'Certificate of Excellence'. Highest number of 5 Star Reviews for ALL Bend VRBO area listings. 2012 Central Oregon Master Gardeners tour property 2014/15/16 Super Host
