Beautiful home. Large, yet cozy & inviting.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very well stocked with the kitchen tools to accommodate our large party. We appreciated how private the rooms were, yet how open the main communal area was. Wendy was very easy to work with and the entire process, from setting up the reservation, all the way to finishing our trip was easy and pleasant. We would be happy to make another reservation here in the future, and highly recommend this property.

Great for a Large Group!

  • 5 of 5

This place is was perfect for our group of 16 people. There is a large living room, dining room and deck area for entertaining and games. There are plenty of dishes, fridge space, coffee, etc. so we didn't have to make any extra trips to the store. Almost each person had their own bed and there were plenty of bathrooms so people weren't waiting to take a shower. The double laundry units also came in handy for us after a day of paintball. Wendy made things very easy for checking in and outlining our responsibilities within the house!

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.

Located in the oldest district in Eugene the elegant Fairmount district is close to parks, the Saturday Market, the University of Oregon and the Willamette River. Hayward Field, home of the Olympic Trials, is .5 of a mile from this beautiful house. Mt. Pisgah and Buford Park (hiking, bird watching, riding and picnicking) are a ten minute drive from the house.
