Thanks for letting us return to this wonderful home. Our family really enjoys this home away. Our grandson (age 4) says he wants to move there. Location is perfect for walking or biking Bend. We'll be back again I'm sure for the convenience, comfort and location.

Great House

We rented this house over President's Day Weekend and it was great! The house was very clean and well maintained and it was within walking distance to downtown restaurants/shops.

Super Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We came to Bend to celebrate a family birthday, this home was just perfect for us! Our son and his family were very comfortable in the large master bedroom with king bed! Perfect for two grandchildren who always manage to sneak into bed with their parents! Plenty of room! Everything was as described, beds were very comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. It's easy walking distance to downtown.

We were pleased to find everything we needed in the kitchen (and everywhere else for that matter) it was like staying in a friend's home. A problem with the cable television was quickly resolved by Chelsea, she really went out of her way. I've stayed in lots of rentals at the beach and the customer service here tops them all.

The fenced yard was so nice for our dog and granddog.

Loved the option to clean up after selves and save the cleaning fee. We agreed we would be happy to book the Kingston again only next time stay longer, the children didn't want to leave, there was more fun to be had! Thanks for a very pleasant experience.

Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Kingston for 2 nights over Halloween with 2 friends and a dog. The location is absolutely perfect for a stay in Bend. It is walking distance to Newport and Galveston restaurants as well as downtown. The back yard is uniquely private with a 6 foot high fence and gates that close in your car so you can use the garage to store all of your sports equipement if you have it! There is a nice and large hot tub deck with beautiful overhanging lights and a nice spot to sit in the sun and lounge in lounge chairs. The garage has a sauna inside and plenty of space for paddle boards. The inside was great too!!! There were high ceilings and 3 large beds! The living room, kitchen, dining room area was all connect for a nice large great room wonderful for socializing! Washer/dryer was nice! The owner was very accomodating to me having my well behaved dog with me! I would absolutely stay here again!!!

Even Better Than the Pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We met our kids from San Fran and Seattle for a week long family vacation in Bend. The Kingston was just perfect for all 6 of us. The house was much roomier than appeared in the photos and the furnishings were all modern and comfortable, including the beds! There was plenty of room for sitting around and enjoying conversations both inside and out back on the deck. It was nice to be able to do our laundry right at the house. We grocery shopped a few blocks away at Newport Market and also enjoyed two wonderful meals at 10 Barrel Brewery just down the street. We enjoyed outdoor activities such as mountain biking, paddle boarding at a glacial lake, hiking and rafting along the Deschutes River, rock climbing at Smith Rock, and strolling around downtown Bend. Chelsea was very easy to interact with and responded quickly to phone calls and texts as we were planning our trip. We would love to return to Bend and stay at the Kingston in the future!

We have stayed at the Kingston House for the past nine years. We enjoy the house and feel at home during our stay. Typically we stay for at least one month a year. The location (West Bend) is ideal for enjoying the down-town Bend area and is an easy walk to Drake Park. There are also some great spots on Galveston Ave for good food and drinks. The house is well maintained and has had major improvements almost every year, such as a new deck and hot tub, new carpets, and new appliances. Any issues or concerns we have had over the years were quickly resolved by Chelsea and her family. The Kingston House has been a great place to stay, with an ideal location at a reasonable price.
