About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Little Pink House is just blocks away from the University of Oregon,The new Arena,and Historic Hayward Field. It is also a short walk from Autzen Stadium and our beautiful bike paths along the Willamette River. The free EMX bus is only blocks away and will take you to the heart of down town for the Farmer's Market, Saturday Market or just to experience Eugene. We are located in the heart of the historic Fairmount Neighborhood which boasts many bakeries, restaurants, organic markets and the famed Prince Puckler's Ice Cream Parlor. Although the Little Pink House is only one year old it was built on the foundation of the very first stage coach station in Eugene. The Pink House is tucked away, and located in a wonderful wooded neighborhood, however it is only steps away from Fairmount Blvd. The house is located on a private alley with it's own parking. We have recently added a lovely path from the pink house which will take you straight to Fairmount Blvd.

We have now added a brand new sleeper sofa to the house allowing accommodations for six. Additionally, we added a 42 inch flat screen high def. television.

The Pink House is furnished with the best hotel beds linens and towels. The kitchen is fully furnished with pots, pans, dishes, coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher, coffee and tea. The house has a new gas barbecue, surround sound, cable television, sky lights, wireless internet and comfortable furniture. We have literature in the house regarding Eugene and it's many attractions, as well as the Willamette Valley. We are close to fishing, hiking, boating, biking, wine tasting...you name it! We have coolers, fishing equipment and even a GPS on request. We know you will enjoy our 'hide away'! Email inquiries only please.

Keywords: Close to the University of Oregon. Family friendly. Close to hikes, bike paths, wonderful restaurants, coffee, ice cream. Steps from the Matthew Knight Arena, Hayward Field and Autzen Stadium.

About Lara Rear

We have stayed in VRBO properties, in Greece, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Panama, the United States, Germany and Mexico and had absolutely wonderful experiences in every property. We want to provide that for our guests as well. We have recently used The Little Pink House as a long time rental for visitors to the University of Oregon as we are only blocks from campus.

Lara Rear purchased this house in 2008

Why Lara Rear chose Eugene

The Little Pink House was brand new in 2008. Given it's location to the University of Oregon, we decided to list the home on VRBO. Having traveled the world and staying in VRBO properties ourself, we thought it would be a wonderful way to preserve the house, and meet wonderful people. When we listed the Little Pink House it was one of five VRBO properties in Eugene! We are now nearly word of mouth having visitors return time and time again. We love the fact that so many have loved staying at our Little Pink House.

What makes this house unique

The Little Pink house is blocks away from the Matthew Knight arena, Hayward Field and even Autzen Stadium. It is set off of the street, yet only steps from Historic Fairmount Blvd. Around the corner Hendrick's park with acres of old growth forest, running and hiking trails. Pre's rock is found only blocks from the house. Fairmount Park down the street is perfect for the kiddos and boasts a water feature for summer fun. Our famous bike trails are only blocks from the house as well as the Willamette River. Spencer's Butte and Mt. Pisgah are also only a short drive away.

This home was very quiet and in a great location in Eugene and had everything we could have wanted with the 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, and laundry facilities. We would definitely stay here again!

great location, well outifted kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the Little Pink House. In addition to a well outfitted kitchen, there are also toys and games in the closet. The house is in easy walking distance of the east side of the University of Oregon campus. There are steps down from the parking space to the house. Inside the house, there is just one flight of stairs, but the bathroom is downstairs and the bedrooms are upstairs. That was not a problem for us, but would be for a person with mobility issues.

Lovely, comfortable and convenient - we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved The Little Pink House!! It is in a wonderfully central location and the accommodations were hotel-like top-notch. The furnishings and feel were lovely and super comfortable. Lots of space and all the dishes, towels, etc that we needed. They even had lovely little hotel-style shampoos & lotions. And, we really enjoyed the air conditioning. Though we didn't use it, there was also a super-cute patio with bistro table and gas bbq. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Eugene and would highly recommend to others. Thank you, thank you for such a lovely stay!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $50

The Little Pink House has never been more than $100 per night. We don't believe in doubling or tripling our rates for "special events" such as Duck Football games. We provide a beautiful home steps from the University of Oregon at the same rate we started with in 2008. We host many parents of U of O students and pride ourselves on giving our guests an affordable experience in Eugene.
