Great Place

September 5, 2016

We stayed for over a month and have only good things to say about the place. You walk in to a nice sized kitchen which opens onto an oversized studio - maybe 14 x 25 - with bay windows on the end that have a great view of the town and river - I could easily see the sandbar and if kites were up. High ceilings and well appointed with a porch off the bay windows. Bathroom is reasonably sized with plenty of storage. Kitchen is spacious and has everything you need. Location is perfect - two blocks from Oak St. We are sensitive to noise and were a little concerned about the 4 other apartments in the house, but while you could occasionally hear things, it was fine and we would have no problem staying again. The house is older and the furnishings are eclectic, it's not something out of Modern Living, but that is part of the charm. Storage is available for luggage with accessible storage for bikes, boards, and other sporting goods. Shared BBQ and patio gives some extra cooking and entertaining options. Finally, Karen keeps the place CLEAN! and will bend over backwards to make sure you have what you need and your stay is pleasant.

This short-term apartment was a great find! I had a contract job in the Hood River area for the winter and needed a close by furnished apartment. I was in the apartment for 5 months, The place was ideal. Walking distance to downtown. Close to stores, restaurants, and church. In the evening, the window overlooking the river and gorge was a great place to look out and relax after a long day. On a clear day you can see the top of Mt Adams. The apartment is in a quiet, safe neighborhood and I never had any problems with the other renters in the building. Everyone was courteous. Karen is a great landlady. Friendly. Very quick to respond to any issues, and even questions about the area. After I left, she sent me a thank note and a mini SD chip I had apparently dropped under the couch.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

Nice! thanks for such a good & detailed review. I hope all's well for you and appreciate you staying and hope to see you again, if you get back down this way.

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the kind words! I was happy to have you stay & that apartment 3 met your needs.. I hope to enjoy that big footed bathtub myself this spring between guests. Come back anytime.

I stayed here for three months during the fall and it was great. I had friendly neighbors, the house was quiet and it's in the perfect location--one street away from downtown. Walking down to the river only took 10-15 minutes. The apartment was comfy and great to come home to after a long day at work. Also, Karen is very accommodating and made sure I had everything I needed. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for those wanting to stay for a few months.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the kind words Pi! You were a pleasure to have stay. Come back out sometime with your beau and play here in the Gorge, "Teddy" is waiting for you. :-)

We stayed in the smallest apartment in the house, but it had plenty of space for two of us. Staying here was more like staying a friend's house than a rental property: casual, homey, and very laid-back. We had a great time in Hood River, and Karen was exceptionally generous, giving advice for things to do (and not do) that were well-suited to our interests and tastes. We walked away with great memories and a bottle of wonderful home-made pickles shared by a previous guest visiting from France.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure to provide a comfy environment for you two. So glad the weather and the Hood River experience was all good. Hope to see you again.

This place was perfect! Right in a perfect part of town. We were able to walk to the river, to stores and restaurants. Across the river there was white water rafting and 15min in the other direction there was a place to pick organic cherries. The house was very clean and felt very comfortable. We would gladly stay there again.

Karen Dove

Owner's reply:

You were the perfect guests as was your pooch... hope to see you 3 again, thanks so much for staying.

We travel with our 3 Cairn Terriers and so we require a special place to stay and a very special landlady. We were fortunate enough to have found both at Dove House. Karen was so gracious and made us feel welcome. The dogs felt very at home, the room was perfect for us and the view and convenience to town and sightseeing were all that we could have asked for. We would recommend this house/apt. for vacationers' with or without pets. We enjoyed our time and Karen was available for any special needs we had. Sharon,Robert, Bear, Ceylon and LuLu

Thank you Sharon, you are very kind! You two and the "kids" were all perfect guests, hope to have you visit again.

My fiancee and I have stayed multiple times in this charming historic home. Karen the owner, is very accommodating and friendly. The location is awesome, only a few blocks to walk into downtown Hood River. The accommodations are well equipped, clean and have a nice view of the river. Karen also has a locked storage area for bikes and wind surfing equipment. We will definitely stay at Karen's place again on our next extended stay in Hood River.

This was a very comfortable place close to the main part of town. It was much better than staying at a hotel. We were with our adult children and dog in two apartments. It was very comfortable and clean. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a great family time at gorgeous Hood River.

We were so happy to find in-town lodging while traveling with our dog. Everything in downtown was just a few blocks away from this cute and cozy rental; no need to drive once you've checked in. The apartment was very comfortable and well furnished, and it had a fabulous outdoor patio with a great view. Karen was friendly and easy to work with, and we really appreciated her flexibility in allowing us a one-night stay when there is a usual 2-night minimum. We would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I stayed here with our two dogs for a bicycle race and had a wonderful time. The owner was very friendly and accommodating, even when we showed up the day before we had originally planned. The property is clean, very near the touristy part of town, and had beautiful views of the Columbia River. The apartment was well described and had no surprises. I will absolutely try to book again if we return next year.

Doves Vacation Rentals has been our choice every summer for the past five years. Nothing beats the location which is walking distance to shops and restaurants or even the river. The furnished apartments provide everything we might need so that we can focus on playing in the sun. And at the end of the day we can always sit outside to barbecue a burger and chat with our neighbours.
