About Heather Bonin

We are a family with three young children, including baby twin girls. The L'il Oar House was our former vacation home. We enjoyed coming to Bend so much that we finally moved here! Our passions include biking, skiing, family time, and sampling the great restaurants and microbrews Bend has to offer. There's truly something here for everyone.

                                                          We enjoyed that place, close to Drake Park and downtown

                                                          Thomas and Helen L.

                                                          Lovely place, well maintained, green and cosy backyard that catches evening light, hosts that take care of you.

                                                          Cozy, charming house.

                                                          Katy H.

                                                          Great rental for Bend vacation. Convenient location, comfortably furnished, nice kitchen, easy parking.

                                                          Relly nice place.

                                                          David S.

                                                          We had a nice time. The place is cute and clean. One suggestion is that they get an Apple TV or some more tv stations.

                                                          just as described.

                                                          Chris and Judy B.

                                                          Clean, well equipped and furnished, good location, good bed, nothing to complain about.

                                                          Nice house-quiet yet central to Old Bend

                                                          Mark C.

                                                          We found the house very comfortable. Everything we needed was there. Town centre was easy walking distance as are several of the main craft breweries.

                                                          Beautiful home. Step down master bedroom wasn't great for anyone with balance or mobility issues.

                                                          Martin B.

                                                          Nicely decorated, beautiful home. Nice location.
