Perfect for a large gathering

  • 5 of 5

About 20 of us stayed in the "villa" for 5 days to celebrate the graduation from U of O of three boys, friends since childhood. There was plenty of space to gather, dine, find a quiet spot to read a book, play corn hole or get a good night's sleep. You can walk up to Hendricks Park or to campus if you are pretty fit. The landscaping is lovely.

Beyond what we expected!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house for the weekend of our wedding and it exceeded our expectations. Each room was spacious enough to accommodate for all of our guests (around 24) and we weren't on top of each other. It offered a lot of privacy but the kitchen, dining, and living room were perfect for a large gathering. We even had enough room to have our wedding rehearsal in the front yard. We almost felt like we were visiting a home in Tuscany because of its beauty. Wendy was such a delight to work with as well. She made the entire experience easy and fun. I would absolutely stay in this home again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, beautiful, home to stay in.

Lovely Home for Team Bonding

Our team was in town for the Pre classic and had an amazing time at the house. Everybody was comfortably accommodated, the house was beautiful and Wendy, the owner, was extremely kind and easy to work with. Would highly recommend this rental!

Perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of high school track coaches and parents that enjoy hosting meals and making sure they get a good rest for the state competition. It had everything we needed and more! Everyone had plenty of space to get a good night's sleep, we played yard games out front, and were able to walk to Hayward multiple times a day. I would definitely recommend this great house and organized owner to anyone!

Wonderful, classy stay in Eugene

  • 5 of 5

My teammates and I needed a big house close to the Lane Events Center and we got everything we needed and more in this property. It was within walking/skating distance to the venue, it comfortably fit us all, and we were so pleased to have ample room and tools for meal prep! I've been visiting Eugene annually for the last five years and this was the best experience for sure. I'll definitely be using this property next year -- my teammates have already requested we book it again!

Thanks again for showing us a great time. We had a wonderful stay.
