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 West Hills HideAway is a gem to share. It is one of three unique homes that make up our Rocking CR Vacation Rentals.
Caroline Matz purchased this House in 2016
Why Caroline Matz chose River West
This house, as part of our Rocking CR Vacation Rentals, is in the City of Bend only 1 mile to Pioneer Park and downtown near Mirror Pond and the Deschutes River. There is a beautiful Hillside Park and Playground just 3 houses up the street. Mt. Bachelor is 20 minutes away. The mountains and hiking are so easily accessed since downtown and Newport and Galveston Avenue activities are only 1 mile 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. Cooking is a pleasure with all the amenities and space to cook with family and friends.

Great for the entire family!
We were in town for a baseball tournament and it was nice to have a house with some space for everyone and a nice kitchen to cook in. The house was a in a good location- close drive to many things in Bend but not too big of a drive to Redmond for games. The pool table/game room was a big hit with our teens too!
This is a nice quiet area of town and easy for all the activities we did while we were here. There were 11 mule deer that came by every day. We really enjoyed the pool table too. The park just down the street was a great place to run the dog.
Great house, great location
We had a great time staying here and recommend it to multiple family members who were all in town for a wedding. It was clean, well maintained, and even with 4 feet of snow the property owners/managers made sure we had a safe place to park and walk up to the house. We were even able to do a little sledding on the hill nearby. Would definitely come back and recommend to others!
Very comfortable and functional
We are pleased you had a wonderful stay. Let us know what we could have done better to get a 5-star response. We were pleased to host you and hope you will return to stay with us in the future.
The house was perfect for entertaining the family members who spent a few days with us. The pool table was a real plus--as were the mule deer that travelled through the front yard on almost a daily basis. The only criticisms: the washer did not seem to be using cold water when the "cold" button was pushed--everything came out hot, even delicates. The kitchen lights would flicker dimly for a period of time after turning them off at night. The garage 8 ft. fluorescent bulbs were out and need to be replaced. Thanks to the owners and to the property manager for all your help!
We are replacing the burnt out bulbs in the garage, so that should not be a problem. The flickering lights is characteristic of some of the new bulbs, just like the dim beginning until they heat up. We are sorry if this was an inconvenience. We enjoyed hosting you and hope you will return for a future stay,
Great Location and House
Great house although if you have anyone elderly as I did traveling with you the floors are not even and are a trip hazard. There is a trim in the middle for some reason. The owner is super accommodating though and the house is gorgeous. We could have used a few more towels and bedding items but it's a convenient location and has a beautiful backyard. Super convenient to a park if you have children and easy access to downtown within minutes.
I appreciate hearing about the uneven surface for your elderly parent. The threshold between the dining are and the open living space is covered by a rug, but I appreciate hearing it is still uncomfortable for elderly people. We will look into this further to try to fix this. I'm sorry you did not see the extra towels and bedding in the hall closet and in the extra bedding in the bonus room.
So close to downtown with all the activity, yet relax in a quiet neighborhood before and after adventures; float, kayak or paddle board on the Deschutes River; ski Mt Bachelor, hike Deschutes National Forest or Smith Rock; golf at Bend Golf and Country Club, Eagle Crest, or many many others; horseback ride through the mountains along acres of BLM land.
