About the property

1 Bedroom with Hillside views close to city center

This elegant apartment has it all. City views, Hilltop views , privacy yet minutes away from Autzen, Hayward Field and the core downtown area.

Living room is wonderfully roomy with leather couch and plenty of seating. Electric fireplace adds just the perfect touch as the sun starts going down. The view from the double French doors can be stunning and changes with the seasons.

The apartment is used only for guests; therefore you will not find any of our personal items there. (We live in the upstairs home) apartment has private entrance and plenty of private outside space. )

Bedroom has storage for your hanging clothes and drawer space. Waffle weave robes are perfect if you have time to just lounge around.

For third or fourth guest , the electric inflating aero bed can be set up in the living room. (A small fee if needed for a second guest. Living Room armoire can be used for hanging clothes.)

Modern Bathroom has tub shower combo.

Large kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator, Keurig and drip coffee makers, stovetop.

We leave you a first morning welcome basket so you don't have to rush to a store.

Expansive wrap around private patio stays cool in the summer since house is built into the hill. Plenty of outside chairs to enjoy the view. Dining table located next to the woodland garden that we call The Grotto.

Apartment is located down one flight of stairs. My husband and I live in the top floor of the home. PLEASE NOTE. We are on a steep hill which affords a great view, however because of this NO CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12 PLEASE.

For stays of 5 or more days we can provide laundry service.

(To satisfy insurance requirements a rental agreement is required at booking. )

One of the best vacation rentals we have ever had!! Really wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented so many vacation homes over the years here and abroad and this was by far one of the very nicest ones we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. So many things about this cozy home are wonderful. Check in was a breeze, Vickie is an amazing host and made sure we had all we needed. She even had coffee, cream fresh OJ and fresh muffins for us there. So thoughtful! The place is immaculate! Not a speck of dust seriously. Gorgeous view and wonderful deck! The pictures on line really do not do it justice. The furnishings are all beautiful ( Not Ikea or low end .) It was wonderful to come home to this warm, luxurious and cozy home every night, turn on the fireplace and enjoy the view. The beds are super comfortable and the bedding is all gorgeous. The bathroom was even stocked with beautiful soaps and shampoos and plenty of fresh fluffy towels. Vickie even had beautiful bath robes there for us. This was better than staying at the Inn at 5th! Will definitely return. Just a few minutes from stores, restaurants and U of O. Looking forward to returning! Thank you Vickie for a wonderful stay!

This is a charming and spacious apartment - a lovely and comfortable place to stay. Just immaculate with very comfortable bed and nice linens. The hosts made access easy and the nice touches such as teas and coffee were appreciated - especially the apple crumb cake! The view is wonderful and private garden sitting area just lovely. I would definitely stay again.

Great place to stay! You can’t go wrong!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful! Plenty of space. The patio is amazing! David and Vickie are wonderful hosts. They will help you any way they can. The kitchen is well stocked with all you might need: all appliances, keurig, drip coffee maker, etc. we didn’t use it much because of all the great restaurants (and brew pubs!) to try. Very convenient to get many places. We would come back here if we are in the area again.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were here from Nashville for our sons wedding and we could not have asked for a more exceptionally clean, well decorated, fully stocked kitchen and last but not least, the incredible views from the huge covered porch and the serenity found in the meditation garden area. One would never know that you’re in the city, because of the location of this great VRBO. Quiet and a very nice neighborhood. Vickie and David were wonderful hosts. If and when we find ourselves in Eugene again, we will certainly stay at this awesome VRBO.

Superior experience!

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate apartment is meticulously cared for, private, quiet, comfy, secure, well set up, and generally gorgeous. Owners Vickie and David provided a nice welcome basket and, as a habit, go to great lengths to avoid being intrusive while remaining handy in case they're needed. We didn't see or hear them; my husband thought they weren't there, but they were. We had a friendly chat on the way out. Nice, warm folks. The upscale neighborhood is a very low-traffic hilltop cul-de-sac, and this lower-level apartment has a great view with a big private patio, table and chairs. One sunset in particular was stunning. At dusk, bats cruised past in the downslope trees 30 or so feet away, and there was birdsong everywhere. There were even wild turkeys! I'd go back anytime. Thank you, Vickie and David!

BEAUTIFUL place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very centrally located. Close to freeways but when you're in the house you feel like you're in the country. Saw wild turkey , deer, and lots of tree squrriels. Very clean.

We will rent this VRBO again.
