About Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals

ABOUT THE OWNERS: Our primary home is on the beach, and we have spent many summers in Montana. But last year, on a visit to Central Oregon, we absolutely fell in love with the outdoor lifestyle, recreation, and golf that Bend offers. We are avid hikers, golfers, and microbrew drinkers, so what better place then Bend for a second home!

We love that Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals is a locally owned and operated property management company, and we appreciate that they have a philosophy about celebrating and preserving Bend culture that is right in alignment with our own. They take amazing care of our home, and will provide you with great service!

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2013

Why Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals chose Bend

We love the downtown area, and the easy access our home has to all the restaurants, micro-breweries and coffee shops. This home is right in the middle of it all! While we were visiting Bend, we rented a home from Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals, met the owner, and found Bluebird Day to be the perfect partner to take good care of our guests and our home.

What makes this house unique

The Ponderosa House is well cared for by Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals. We are a local Bend company passionate about sharing our authentic Bend lifestyle with you, and creating memorable experiences that immerse you in your destination. The unique location of the Ponderosa House in Bend's premier new housing development, Newport Landing, places you in walking distance to town while providing the luxury and amenities of a brand new home.

Great for a group going to school

  • 5 of 5

Eight adult ladies shared this house with much success over a weekend. Everyone agreed that this house was everything we wanted and more in Bend. Plenty of room in the kitchen for 3-4 cooks and enough hot water for 8 ladies leaving at the same time every day. We loved the fireplace and the games provided for a quiet night the last night. A must on the location if you are going to COCC. Shampoo provided. VERY clean, is a nice surprise for rental homes, which I'm often left wondering if the floor is clean. I imagine if the weather is bad the driveway would be a challenge, so keep that in mind if you are not a winter driver - the driveway is steep!

What a wonderful clean and well appointed house! The beds were so comfortable and the house plan was perfect for our group. I have stayed at other homes and this one was by far the nicest. We loved the patio also. I would recommend this house . The kitchen had everything we might need to fix ourselves some meals. It was a pleasure to be in such a beautiful environment!

They thought of everything!!

  • 5 of 5

We are so thrilled with their level of service. We have stayed at a ton of vacation rentals and have tons of hospitality experience and they have thoughtfully placed all the little details needed to make your experience wonderful. The Ponderosa house is amazing and we will try to stay there the next time we come to the area but even if that is booked we will look for another bluebird property. I love excellence in service. Well done!

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several houses in Bend and this was our most pleasurable experience! The sheets were luxurious and the soaps and lotions were a nice touch. The layout of the house was very well thought out and we easily had 8 adults comfortably coexist for a week.

The location is fantastic, just off of Newport Market and College Way. The wonderful shops and restaurants of Newport Market are within walking distance, and Central Oregon Community College is just up the hill. Downtown Bend is an easy cruiser bike ride, about 1.5 miles away through Bend's charming neighborhoods. Literally right outside your door is the popular Broken Top Bottle Shop, a super fun brewpub and restaurant. Also Bom Dia Coffee Shop, Angel Thai Westside, and an Italian Trattoria. Newport Landing is a quiet neighborhood with fantastic access to all the happenings in Bend.
