About Caroline Matz

We both like the outdoors and the activities that come with it. We like skiing, hiking, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding. We moved from Sonoma California in 2012. We enjoy meeting people and sharing where we live with others. So we looked for a house that was in Bend, Oregon, near downtown and the mountains and hiking and rafting on the river, but far enough away to have some quiet relaxing time after adventures. We think Awbrey Hills HideAway is a gem to share.

Caroline Matz purchased this house in 2016

Why Caroline Matz chose River West

This house is in the City of Bend only 1.2 miles to Pioneer Park near Mirror Pond and the Deschutes River. There is a beautiful Hillside Park just 3 houses up the street. Mt. Bachelor is 20 minutes away. The mountains and hiking are so easily accessed since downtown is only 1.5 miles away and Highway 97 is your access to Sisters, Redmond and Smith Rock, Bend Country Club and High Desert Museum. Many golf courses are only 10 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

We think you will fully enjoy the quiet surroundings of the house, especially after a full day of exploring and adventure. Yet the house is so close to most activities you may want to do.

Great family fun!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Caroline for a great stay. Your place is immaculate, relaxing and in a nice part of town. It was just minutes to many great restaurants and kayaking (our favorite activity). It was perfect for all three generations of our family. It even stayed cool in the July heat. We see our in-laws once a year so it was super important that the house was nice and relaxing. Your place was just that!

Perfect fit for our family of 5.

  • 5 of 5

Lots of space for everyone. The Living/Dinning room is nice and big, plus the gas fireplace keeps the house warm (yes, we had to turn it on even though it was June 10th!!).

Kitchen is big and would be great to make a big meal. Bedrooms are far enough away from living room and TV room so if anybody wants to hit the sack early.

Our kids thought that the house needed another TV in the living room, but I think it is just fine have the 1 TV in the lower party room.

We had some minor issues with the house, but we just e-mailed the owner and got everything resolved.

The laundry room is huge and doubles as a gear storage room, we fit 4 sets of golf clubs in there with plenty of room to left

We'll definitely keep this on the list of rentals to use in the future and will recommend it to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback, and for the care you took of our home. We are pleased it was comfortable for all of you...and your golf clubs. Yes, it was cold in June this year, but it is fun to be able to use the fireplace. We look forward to having you and your family return to Awbrey Hill HideAway. By the way, we did fix/adjust the sprinkler system.

A Great Southern Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Visited Bend from Calgary Alberta Canada, and this beautiful and spacious home was the perfect place to stay! It's only moments away from downtown, westside restaurants and attractions and it is within walking distance to a phenomenal park with an off leash area for dogs. The home is exceptionally clean and well supplied with everything I needed. Looking forward to my next stay here!

Close and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us. My husband and I had a grand long weekend. We relaxed in the comfortable living room by the blazing fire. We barbecued and cooked and loved sitting on the patio sharing wine in the evening and coffee in the morning. We were so close to downtown, we frequently biked to shopping and restaurants. We slept soundly each night in the master bedroom. We will be back.

Kris's Gang

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a month and had a wonderful time. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked so we were able to cook meals quite easily. The family room was great for the kids to play games, cards, watch TV while the adults enjoyed socializing in the living room. We were close to town so frequently went for the many hikes along the river. It was also great having the big park just up the street. The house worked perfectly for us.

great place!

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky to get this place. We have stayed for years in Bend and this was by far one of the most comfortable places we have stayed. We came in for a bike race and had lots of gear and bikes and there was a great utility room which was unexpected and perfect for having everything out of the way. The rest of the house was very comfortable for our group of 5. Great location too away from the busy roads in West Bend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the care you took of our home. You are welcome anytime. I am pleased you found it comfortable for 5 of you. I hadn't thought about "adventure" gear, but the laundry/utility room is a great spot for it. Thanks for sharing that idea for others. We hope to host you in the future!
