Have a Place of Your Own

If you are loathing the idea of renting an apartment because you’d like to have more space – we may be able to help with our affordable houses available for rent. After all, one of the great things about East County is the wide-open spaces, and it would be a shame not to be able to enjoy that if you can.

Attentive Maintenance Management

One of the things that most concerns prospective renters is how attentive their landlords will be to their needs. That is where the benefit of renting a house which is managed by a rental property management company like Mountain Retreats really shines through.


Whereas owner-managed rentals may suffer from a lack of experience or care on behalf of the property owner because they are just renting their property on the side, property management is our job. We are accountable both to you and the homeowner as our full-time job, a fact we take very seriously.


We want you to be happy in the rental that you call home whether for the short-term, long-term, or for a vacation, and to this end, we are available at any time to sort through your maintenance needs. Our network of home repair specialists can take care of your needs – whether non-essential or emergency – promptly and correctly.


Give us a call today or send us an email to talk about the options we have available of houses for rent.

Frequently Asked Questions from those Looking to Rent a Home

  • Do I need to replace simple things such as lightbulbs and smoke detector batteries?

Yes, expendable equipment such as batteries and lightbulbs are the responsibility of the renter, and need to be working at the time of your move out just as they are when you move in. If a smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector is not working correctly, give us a call as soon as possible and we will replace it.

  • What deposits are required when renting a house?

A security deposit is required before moving into a property to cover repairs and cleaning which are a result of your activities in a rental house. In order to recover this deposit when you move out, ensure that the inside and outside of the house is thoroughly cleaned and in good order. You may consider hiring professional cleaners to do this – remembering that the cost of hiring a cleaner may be less than losing your deposit.

  • Who do I pay rent to each month?

Your rent will be paid via direct deposit or check to Mountain Retreats (that’s us). Our job is to then distribute funds to all concerned parties from there.


  • Do I need renters’ insurance?

Yes, renter insurance is required. It protects you the tenant from theft, water and fire damage and liability issues caused by you and your guest’s negligence. The owner and property management company and it’s agents will not be liable or responsible for loss or damage to property belonging to tenants or their guests.


  • If I have a problem with the rental property at 3 am, how should I contact you?

This depends if the problem is an emergency or non-essential. If there is a serious leak, you smell gas, or there is another emergency situation, first neutralize the problem so there is no danger to the house or anyone in the house. Then yes, give us a call so we can help deal with the problem and avoid (additional) damage – even at 3 in the morning. With other problems, obviously we’d prefer you wait until we are in the office!


  • Will anyone from Mountain Retreats come by to check on the house without alerting me?

In Oregon, landlords must provide 24-hour notice prior to coming onto the rental property. The only exceptions include emergencies and when a service has been agreed upon beforehand between tenant and landlord. However, because we are accountable to the homeowners, we do regularly come by all of our properties without notice to get an idea of how things are going from the street.
