About Gail Leopold

I found my heart home when I moved to Oregon in 1992. Love to travel this country, abroad and go on staycations too! I love how easy it is to access hiking, camping, cross country skiing, kayaking and biking. When it's time to wind down, I enjoy reading, enjoying my dog, crafts and feathering my nest.

Gail Leopold purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Gail Leopold chose Southeast Bend

I fell in love with this property because it has wonderful light and yard. The corner lot provides a spacious yard to enjoy gardening and bird watching.

What makes this apartment unique

This private apt in located adjacent to my home. It has a separate entrance and patio allows for privacy. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and yet surprisingly convenient. Minutes to downtown, the Old Mill, Deschutes River, Sunriver and the High Desert Museum. If you like to hike or bike, trails are close too. There's also off leash dog parks within minutes.

Amazing, clean, and convenient dog friendly unit!

  • 4 of 5

Gail was such a wonderful host! She had a basket of goodies/extra supplies for our pup, and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Incredibly clean and updated unit, complete with games, movies, extra blankets, a Roku TV, extra spices for cooking, and even a binder full of things to do/see and explore in and around Bend.

The full spacious kitchen provided an open floor plan and made the unit feel a lot bigger for us there with our young Golden Retriever. This was the first time we have rented a unit through HomeAway that was attached to someone's home (although it was separated by the garage). It was private, and being located in a very nice quiet subdivision, parking on the street/security was of little to no concern. Unfortunately, the lock on the door to our private entrance on the side of the unit happened to break the week before we got there (the part to fix it was on order), but we were able to permanently secure the door and come and go through the garage. Overall it worked out just fine.

It is a good ten minute drive to Farewell Bend Park and the Old Mill District, but it was pretty much a straight shot. It was a little more than a 30 minute drive to Mt. Bachelor, as well. It dumped snow during our stay, and when we got back from a day on the mountain, Gail had even shoveled our walkway for us!

We will definitely be staying here again and appreciated the hospitality very much!

Thanks a million, Gail!

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks so much for a great review, but also for being the best kind of guests any host could ask for! Not only super clean, considerate and respectful, but left behind a little gift! Would love to have you all come back anytime!

Quiet and convenient

Cozy and nicely decorated little guest house in a quiet neighborhood a short drive to downtown Bend and 20 mins from Mt Bachelor. Everything was in good working order and very clean. Host Gail was very responsive and gracious.

Perfect place to stay for our Bend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just what we were looking for. Very clean, had everything we needed for our stay and Gail was great to work with. We can't wait to visit again, hoping for better weather next time, but would definitely stay here again. We tried to check out as many of "Gail's Favorites" in Bend....all were beautiful!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. This home is incredibly clean, well stocked and comfortable. We stayed for a week with our 11 and 16 year old. Our 16 year old was comfortable on the futon and our 11 year old slept on a provided cot, it was perfect. Very close to Sun River, the Mill district and the Cascade Lakes to mention just a few. Gail was such an amazing lady. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and that we had a nice stay. We highly recommend staying here and can't wait to return ourselves :)
