About Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals

As a family from Ireland and Oregon, we have traveled a lot of the world and have continually searched for our ultimate holiday home. From our first visit to Bend we knew this was the place we wanted to be. The friendliness of the people, beauty of the high desert, never ending activities and abundant sunny days all add up to the perfect destination. A note about our first visit...we had a wonderful experience renting a property through Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals. So, once we decided to purchase a property of our own, there was no question who our 1st choice in property management would be. Bluebird Day's personal touch & customer service is truly amazing.

Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Bluebird Day Vacation Rentals chose Bend

We chose this property because of it's fantastic location being only a couple of blocks away from Mirror Pond and all the fun shops & restaurants of downtown. We also love the quality of finishes in this fine home. Plus, having the main house and apartment above the garage offers great opportunities for multiple guests.

What makes this apartment unique

This charming brand new apartment is close to all the best that Bend has to offer. The layout is open with lots of windows for plenty of natural sunlight. The kitchen is gorgeous, and fully equipped with anything you may need for a beautiful meal. There is a super cool gas fireplace, comfy, fun, contemporary furnishings, and HDTV. Its the perfect launch pad for all of your Bend adventures!

A hit and a miss?

  • 4 of 5

Overall, a very beautiful place and well maintained, but a few minor things that we didn't love.

-There is only street parking, and then you have to walk around the back block to get in and out. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't ideal for us having a truck to park on the street. However, we were close to downtown and within great walking distance, so it wasn't a huge issue.

-It was HOT, and there is only a standing AC unit (which is noisy sitting in the front room). So we had to keep the place buttoned up pretty well and then open it up at dark.. and thankfully we brought our own small fan, so we just had to be strategic with trying to keep it cooled down. Warm when we went to bed at night, even after running the AC and fans all day long, as it's an upstairs unit.

-There is no counter in the bathroom, so there was no where to lay toiletries when trying to get ready and the laundry room/closet is the only place for storing bags or clothing in the bedroom.

This place is gorgeous, and tastefully decorated and comfortable. I just wish it had better usable space in the bedroom and bathroom. I would say that I was slightly disappointed, but we just worked around it.

Great location cute apartment. Comfy bed. However....

  • 2 of 5

Too much stuff in living room. Can't pull blinds up or fully down. No rods to open or close blinds on most windows. Sofa too low and too soft which caused hubby to hurt his back. Don't recommend for older visitors. So many don't do this or Don't do that neighbors won't like it felt unwelcoming. Floors not too clean. Found nail clippings in carpet. Webs on lights. No curtains on bathroom windows and worker was making repair while i used toilet. Didnt see him when i went in. Unpleasant surprise. Won't be back.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This spot is located in a very quiet neighborhood which is very nice and close to town. It was HOT while we were there (nearly 100*) and there wasn't central air, however they provided a standing AC unit. It still got a little hot but I think that type of weather isn't normal for Bend. Also the description for where to go to get inside wasn't very helpful. Google maps will take you to the front of the house, park on that street, walk around to the back of the house (there's an alleyway with garages) and the door is to the right of the 2nd house in. Otherwise great stay!

Cute, great location, some small issues

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this cute little apartment, though it seemed like the people before us enjoyed it a little too much... There was some existing damage, possibly due to excessive partying, including damaged blinds and the broken toilet paper holder in the bathroom.

The building could use some better marking, as it was a bit difficult to find after dark. (It might be a good idea to leave the lights on the day someone is coming in.)

Also, if you have any questions (like 'where the heck is the thermostat, it's boiling in here!') don't expect the management to answer. They only take calls during 'bank hours' and give you the runaround via email.

However, the location is great and everything is very clean and comfortable!

Beautiful and close to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

I loved it here! It was so clean and decorated so nicely. I felt right at home! The fireplace warmed up the space nicely and it was super convenient to walk downtown. It was nice and quiet too. Only negative things...no views and handle to open blinds comes off every time you try to twist it. Otherwise perfect spot! Very peaceful!
