About Kenny Bavoso

I moved to The Columbia River Gorge in 1992 because I loved to windsurf. I've now lived in the Great Northwest for 24 years and absolutely adore it. I grew up in Colorado. I enjoy building and fixing things, and also spend a lot of time in the outdoors, camping, traveling and adventuring.

Kenny Bavoso purchased this house in 2005

Why Kenny Bavoso chose Washougal

This is one of the oldest homes in Washougal, built in 1910. It's located at the mouth of the Columbia River Gorge. You can walk to the Washougal and Columbia Rivers. There are lots of hiking and biking trails, and nearby outdoor resources of all kinds, but still within a reasonable drive into Portland.

What makes this house unique

Sleeps 12-13 people. Has tree house, tiny house, small hot tub, tiny Finnish wood powered sauna, easy parking for 3-4 cars, close to I-5 and 205, local breweries and restaurants nearby, in the City of Washougal, Washington.

I reserved this property for 8 adults and 4 children months in advance. I was quoted a price and I paid the price. When I called to make an arrangement to pick up the key I was told I had only paid for the house and it would be $600.00 dollars more to have use of the little house and the tree house. NOT COOL.

The house is a 1910 model with little upgrades done. What has been done was done every haphazardly.

The add said it could accommodate 12 people. There are only setting for on two tables in the house for four each. There is not enough silver for 12 people.

The kitchen area was infested with ants.

No toaster.

One trash can and it was full of yard trimmings.

The lot next to the fire pit was a small junkyard with a few cars and three large, vicious dogs that would attack the fence anytime anyone went near the fence.

Tried to use a blanket from the upstare closet, it was for grass and debris.

The yard had all dead or dying grass.

The overhead light in the downstairs bedroom had been removed and the wires sticking out of the ceiling were covered with wire nuts.

My daughter has used Homeaway four times. Each time the home turned out to be much nicer than expected. This one must have fallen through the crack.

Owner's Response: Hi Mel, we are sorry the place didn’t meet your expectations but I would like to clarify some facts. 5 months ago you wrote: What would it cost for the tree house and the little house? Would the kids be allowed to have tents in the back yard? I then responded: Hi, cost is $100 a night plus $50 cleaning fee. And I’m okay with a tent, but don’t want more than 12 people total a night. Let me know what other questions you might have. Kenny 5 months ago We clearly stated in our add that the house is suited for 8 people and that if you want to use the treehouse and Tinyhouse to sleep 12 that there is an additional cost, this is why you asked me the question in our thread (we have now changed the listing to include the additional charge, without any options for cheaper rental for less spaces being used). The house is definitely old, with a shabby sheek astetic and we understand this is not for everyone but we work hard to make it as comfortable and economic as possible, especially for 12 people looking for options like a hot tub, sauna and additional spaces like a tree house and tiny house. As for things like the garbage, you were simply trying to use our yard debris bin rather than garbage and recycling bins on the side of the house. I’m also sorry to read your review, as I also worked with your daughter and she seemed to indicate that the place was going to work well for the family and the kids. As for not having silverware for 12, sorry about that, we work to make sure our kitchen is well stoked but it does look like a few pieces of silverware have disappeared over the summer, as we have guests most nights of the summer. We also have professional pest management for the entire property. In effect to conserve water we don’t run sprinklers and let nature take its course, which does lead to brown grass in the dry months but don’t worry a little rain will bring it right back to lush green. As for things being built haphazardly, sorry you feel that way, as we take great pride in the work we have done on the property over the last 13 years, but understand that our style isn’t for everyone.

House could use a little updating but overall a good place to sleep and hang out.

Great contact with host and he was easy to get ahold of. Basic needs met and a great location for getting to the MX Park. Loved the front porch to hang out on. Window AC units cooled the upstairs well.

Very enjoyable old home. Wonderful owner.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Washougal. This 1910 home was clean, interesting, comfortable. The yard is very fun to explore, with the tree house, hot tub, small house, wood fired sauna, and very interesting selection of plants (including the biggest Tree of Heaven that I have ever seen supporting the treehouse) If you enjoy older homes and seeing how owners have incorporated technology as it came into being, you will enjoy this house. decorating is eclectic and fun. The owner is outgoing, helpful, and informative. we had a great time!

This home is well furnished with plenty of extras, like a sauna and hot tub, and lots of space for 5 or more adults. Kenny is a great host!
