About Rune and Kim Borgir

This Norwegian clan has gathered in Bend since the 1970s. This is a family vacation home. The siblings still meet here traveling from Germany, Berkeley and Seattle - with one sibling here in Bend.

Rune and Kim Borgir purchased this house in 2003

Why Rune and Kim Borgir chose West Hills

The feeling of being in the woods while being close-in attracted this hiking and cross country ski loving family to the house. Lay back, put your feet up - no fuss family home. You will not find the feeling of a hotel or even a vacation rental that has been set up solely for the purpose of renting out. This is a well loved and well lived in home.

What makes this house unique

The very best thing about this location is your proximity to downtown and all that is happening on the westside of Bend - but away from the congestion and parking issues of the busier neighborhoods.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Rune and Kim were very responsive to any questions we had. The house has two bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs. There is a bathroom on each of the three levels. The kitchen is bright and spacious. We frequently ate breakfast and dinner on the deck with a view of the forest. Our dog loved the yard with a large grassy area and many trees.

We will be back!

Very welcoming and comfortable for we three adults, each with our own rooms. Beds are great, showers are hard to get away from, kitchen well stocked and the common space comfortable.

Owner's Response: Hi - Happy to hear you liked the house and location. Your deposit was returned April 6th via VRBO. That was 9 days after checkout which is well within the two weeks. If you have not received it please let me know or contact VRBO directly. The last guests checked out the previous weekend. However, this is still our family's vacation home so there are lots of personal items. Best of luck on your future VRBO stays. Kim

Great Home & Host

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect. Huge fenced in yard for the pups, 3 great sized bedrooms, a fully stocked kitchen (pots/pans, spices, appliances, etc). The pictures don't do the living space justice. It's open and bright and plenty of room! Would definitely stay at this home again
