Helios, just like last year, was perfect. Everything was spotless. The house is very well thought-out, furnished and equiped. The location, just a short walk from a first rate grocery, coffee shop and several dining options is a real plus. I can't imagine a better rentaloption in Bend.

Friends & I went to Bend for a ladies only mountain biking excursion. Helios eco house was amazing! Plenty of space for everyone, a clean modern look & super comfortable beds. We spent long days cycling mindblowing terrain. Sarah pointed out some superb trails & great places to eat. We liked 10 Barrel & Kebaba which were easy to walk to from the house. Everyone had a wonderful time at Helios. We're hoping to come back to ride & stay at Helios again in august when more trails are open.

We've stayed in a lot of vacation rentals up & down the west coast. Helios is the best yet! This was our first time to Bend. Sarah thought of everything to make our stay great - flawless from the reservation process through check out. Sarah gave us great advice on the best ways to spend our time. The house was so relaxing & enjoyable, we couldn't wait to get back after our days out exploring. My wife, sister-in-law and my mother-in-law "absolutely loved" the kitchen. All six of us raved about the comfortable beds over morning coffee. The furnishings and layout were great - modern and impeccably kept. The fact that Helios is a Leed certified eco house with solar panels was unique and refreshing to find in a vacation rental. Helios was the perfect home for our family and comes highly recommended. If only we could give it more than just 5 stars.

My family & I have stayed in Bend about every 3 months over the past 2 years. After a few average to sub par rental experiences, we finally found vacation rental gold at Helios Eco House. It's a beautiful home with everything we needed and expected. The owners' personal touches and level of service helped make our most recent visit the best yet. We loved Helios and will be staying here exclusively every single time we're in Bend!

We stayed at Helios in March during the 2013 us Snowshoe National Championships & absolutely loved the house. The kitchen set up was great. Impeccably clean & comfortable. Great location. The owner, Sarah, was kind enough to recommend activities for those of us not competing. The beds were so comfortable we all slept like rocks. Our group had a great time in Bend. Helios has spoiled us & we can't wait to come back soon!

We loved our stay. There were 5 of us and our dog Sadie. The owner Sarah made a special basket to welcome our dog as well as other dog paraphenalia like bowls, and bed. Sadie loved it there!! There were so many special touches that made the house nice. I haven't stayed in a rental with such a well equipped kitchen. There was even a first aid kit and scotch tape, both of which came in handy!
The house itself was extremely beautiful and we loved all the windows that opened to allow fresh air and cool the house in the evening. There is a gas BBQ outside, a place to dock your Ipod for music, and a nice table to dine outside with the ambiance of the garden and patio.

My wife and I (along with our dog) stayed at Helios Eco house in July. It is a new, modern house within walking distance of Drake Park on the river in the best part of Bend. The house uses green materials and systems throughout and would be worth a visit for anyone considering building or remodeling. There is minimal yard space since it is built on a narrow lot as a high density urban infill, but the interior is spacious and there is a usable patio area with seating and grill. I want to go back in the winter to take advantage of the radiant floor heat. Be sure to get a cappuccino at Backporch Coffee Roasters and check out the Newport Market next door.

There are many things I enjoyed about staying in this house in Bend. The beds were incredibly comfortable. It's within easy walking distance to restaurants and a great little grocery store. Although my favorite thing about this house is that it is truly a dog friendly house and not a selectively dog friendly house. My huskies really enjoyed there stay too.

We stayed at Helios for a weekend of skiing at Mt. Bachelor with a total of 6 adults and two doggies. There was plenty of room for everyone and the home was very comfortable. The home's finishes were top quality, better than most homes and certainly nicer that most hotels/motels in the area... nice linens, cookware, etc..
We were within walking distance to downtown Bend which made exploring the neighborhood easy and fun. Lots of good food options are nearby as well.
Drive time to the mountain on the snowiest day was 45 minutes, which seemed like no big deal compared to making the trek from Portland to Mt. Hood on a low snow-level day.
"A welcoming Eco-modern experience at an affordable price!"

We loved our stay & highly recommend Helios!
It was very clean. Great kitchen. Comfortable beds.
We enjoyed walking the neighborhood with the dogs.
This is a very well maintained house that made us feel like we were home.

Bend is a vibrant and hip town with a lot to offer those looking for a great mix of outdoor adventure and culture. Helios fits perfectly within this scene, offering a beautiful, practical, and environmentally sound place to stay while visiting. I really love the design and architectural aspects of the house, and the obvious attention to detail the owners have put into it. Highly recommended!

Helios Eco House was simply perfect! We'd never stayed in a Leed certified house before & had a great experience here. Awesome set-up & neighborhood. Comfy & totally modern. Extremely well cared for by the owner. We were all very impressed & hope to come back in summer with our dogs.
