About This Listing
Comfy home, not the Ritz a far cry from a Super 8. Within walking distance of Autzen. Shopping, running trails, nice yard and garden for bbq's and sitting around the fire.
Comfy private home, 2 bdr, 1 1/2 bath, nice garden, two miles north of downtown. Country cottage style with large yard, central location. New carpeting and paint in Guest bedroom 2/2015.
Kitchen access, wireless, home owner sometimes home, sometimes on the road. Men's Road and mountain bike available.
Bedrooms are upstairs and include owner's room and spare room that is often rented individually. Both bathrooms are on main floor. You have exclusive use of the half bath, and share the full bath if you are just renting the spare room.. Towels, soap and shampoo provided like any motel. But the goal is for you to enjoy access and use of the whole house, including kitchen and refrigerator space.
Four major grocery stores, and three shopping centers nearby. Motel 6 is $59 off I 5. Ridiculous...Stay with me, friendly comfort, better bed, free wireless, full kitchen, close to campus and downtown for less.
Oakway shopping center, Gateway Mall and Valley River Center all nearby.
Near river bikepaths, Pre's Trail, parks in every direction.
Owner is often away so you may have the place to yourself, but he is also quiet, respectful and doesn't have to entertain you if you want your space.
Both bathrooms are on main floor. Towels, soap and shampoo provided like any motel. But the goal is for you to enjoy access and use of the whole house, including kitchen and refrigerator space.
During the summer you can eat blueberries, cherries, strawberries, raspberries and vegies from "your" own garden.
I've learned a better way to invite guest to be comfortable. Imagine you are staying with an old college (email hidden)'s not the Ritz, but not Motel 6 either.
Full house access. Space in frigerator, personal use of half bath when renting just the guest room. Everything when renting whole house. Fenced back yard for dogs.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they desire.
Surrounded by parks, running trails, bike paths.
Local bus transit right down the block.
Welcome to my humble home. I hope you will feel comfortable, as if you were staying at the home of an old college roommate. Other than drinking the last beer in the refrigerator or leaving the bathroom a mess I’m pretty casual and want your stay to be restful and enjoyable.
Airbnb suggests posting house rules so here is what I have come up with:
NO smoking, no 420 sorry
Use the half bath as your own, towels, soap, shampoo provided
Share the full bath with owner. Enclosed tub/shower
Closet space in room
Full use of the kitchen, space provided in refrigerator
Coffee, tea, cocoa provided. Milk, sugar (sorry no cream usually)
Breakfast of sourdough pancakes, eggs provided upon request the night before when owner is home
Wireless Internet code (phone number hidden)
Be mellow. If you stay for a week, help mow the lawn
Turn out all lights at night except for light in half bath
Key does not work in front doorknob, just deadbolts, use care to not lock doorknob I don’t carry a key for it.
When I am home I usually leave the back door unlocked. If you aren’t comfortable with that go ahead and lock up
Outdoor key lockbox available if you misplace your key – call me and I can tell you the code
During summer help graze through the garden lots of berries, fresh greens, vegies
On LTD (city) bus line – for route information check Lane Transit District – (website hidden)

Bicycle use possible if you let me know in advance road and MTB

Randy made life EASY for me and my pups, and that's exactly what we needed this weekend. The place was comfortable and clean. Had everything we could've needed. I would LOVE to return again in the future!
I arrived in Eugene without knowing anyone and Randy has helped me with my new transition. He has welcomed me and my dog to stay with him, he has been very generous and helpful. My dog absolutely adores and loves him. Randy has been very accommodating and resourceful about where to shop and visit around Eugene. My dog and I have been very lucky to stay with him and I hope to extend my stay even longer. My travel experience in Oregon has been so far amazing and he has helped contribute to that. Randy is a wonderful person, host, and friend. My dog and I has very much enjoyed being a guest at his house=)
We had a great stay at Randy's. He made coming and going very easy and he communicated well with us to let us know when he wouldn't be around. He pointed me in the direction of a beautiful trail run along the Willamette River less than a mile from his home. Thanks, Randy!
We stayed with Randy for a week. He's very laid back and has fun stories about Eugene to share. The neighborhood is nice. If you like to walk, it's easy to explore and get around. Trader Joe's and Costco are nearby (maybe a bit of a walk, but do-able if you're inclined.) The pancakes are delicious - ask for seconds!
The description accurately describes the property and host - it's not fancy but is comfortable.
Had a great experience... This was my first time using this site. Randy was a great host and will return the next time I'm in Eugene.
