Lovely Private Suite & Patio by UO

House - Private room · University Street, Eugene, OR 97403, United States

Private entrance to comfy suite and patio, quiet dead-end street, nine blocks from campus--walking distance to Pre's Trail, Amazon Park, Hayward Field, Matt Arena, local restaurants, natural foods and mainstream markets, bike paths, running trails.

The Space

Rustling bamboo, blueberries, flagstone path, a swinging bench seat under a willow tree and a secluded patio that's perfect for morning coffee, afternoon relaxing or an evening barbecue with friends.

This suite is $75 per night if only using one bedroom, and $90 per night if using both. They share the bathroom and kitchenette and are both private from the main house.

The main bedroom has a queen and the second has a double bed.

We're just minutes from any event on the UO campus, an hour from walking on a Pacific Ocean beach, an hour from hiking or skiing in the Cascade Mountains, minutes from rafting or fishing on the McKenzie River, and no time at all from a nap in a great queen bed.

The Eugene area is awesome! You'll have a great time if you've never been here before.

The suite has a collection of novels and travel books, a WiFi connection, and a flat screen TV with basic cable stations.

Your suite includes a private bathroom and a kitchenette with mini-fridge, coffee maker, microwave, single-burner hot plate, electric water kettle, toaster, dishes and utensils. Close the bedroom door and the early-riser can make coffee without waking the sleepy-head.

We love animals and your furry friend is fine with us. Please let us know if you're bringing pets. If you're bringing a cat, please have a bell for the collar because we like songbirds too. Oh, and please check first if you're some sort of traveling animal show and you need us to prepare for a menagerie!

The house and property are in the early stages of a top-to-bottom upgrade. (We started with your suite!) The flagstone path is in progress, you'll see rocks we've collected from all over Oregon that are ready for future landscaping, and there is a tidy stack of lumber that is waiting to be used on new trellises and decks. We promise no construction while you're here.

The backyard will one day be a small permaculture area, so if you visit every year you'll see the progress and be able to share in the veggies, fruit and herbs!

Guest Access

Feel free to wander the front, back and side yards. The back patio and the willow tree swing area are yours alone. Make yourselves at home.

If you have local family and friends you'd like to entertain, we're willing to work with you if you need access to the main kitchen and living area.

Interaction with Guests

We're usually here or nearby at work, but we do travel now and then. We'd love to meet you and share stories, or we'll respect your privacy if that's your desire. Bring your friends over and hang out, enjoy your seclusion in the suite and patio, or disappear to your tour of our great city and our beautiful Northwest region.

I grew up on the coast and my husband Charlie and I have traveled nearly every back road of Oregon. We can give you some great tips on things to see and do.

The Neighborhood

It's great for walking and bike-riding. We're a half-block from the historic Masonic Cemetery which is filled with huge trees and native plantings and it has great views of the city and the Coast Range. It's like being in the woods without leaving the city.

Sundance Market was a national pioneer in the shift from processed to organic/bulk foods in the 60's and it's still here today. We pick up fresh food and fair trade coffee there a couple of times a week.

University Park, Amazon Park, Amazon Pool, The Reach Center and several churches are very close.

The best part about where we live is that our neighbors aren't strangers and we lend each other a hand when something needs doing.

Getting around

Two of the primary Eugene bike paths are just a few blocks from here and the regular side streets are fine for riding as well. You can catch the LTD bus just 3 blocks from the house.

Other Things to Note

We'll try to keep the parking space open at the bottom of the front stairs for your use, but it's normal public parking like most anywhere else so someone might be there. Please try not to park in the driveway . . . that gets a lot of action with our big truck and various building materials.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I did not meet Geni or Magee, but Charlie was very kind and friendly. The set up was great with a private bath, 2 beds and mini kitchen (fridge, microwave and electric teapot). Charlie was running a bit late and had not made up the beds when we arrived in the early evening, but it was no trouble since we were heading out to dinner anyway. When we returned everything was set up and we knew for certain that the bedding was changed! The decor was eclectic and the garden was refreshing. Although the mattress was rather lumpy, I would definitely recommend staying with them.

  • We didn't meet them but we loved the little private suite we stayed in at the back of the house. We needed a place just for one night and this fit the bill. We booked it last minute which seemed to be no problem at all. We were very comfortable and had a peaceful night.

    April 2014
  • We had a great stay at Geni & Charlie's - clean, hassle free, happy environment, and they have outfitted the space to have everything you could need (including a fridge, hot water kettle, and coffee maker). And to top it all off, they are dog-friendly! We will be staying here again and recommending to other folks heading to Eugene. Thanks guys.

  • Lovely place well located in Eugene. Felt very comfortable I and love the colors! Private with anything you could want for a pleasant stay…easy to find with great hosts and plenty of privacy. I am sure during the summer it is even lovelier!

  • I like the place. It is very quite and comfortable. we will definitive come back.

    March 2014
  • Everything was just as advertised. We used this suite as "overflow" sleeping for a big family gathering in Eugene. The location is fantastic, and the house and yard are charming. So nice that we were allowed to have our little dog, too. He loved the backyard! If we come back to Eugene, we'd be happy to rent here again.

  • Great little home! Very relaxing and enjoyable stay! Thank you

    March 2014
  • Comfortable place for family of three. Airbnb has worked real well for us. We still get plenty of space without having to book 2 separate rooms. Spoke to Genie on the phone she seems friendly and Charlie we met quickly in person, friendly guy. Would stay here again if passing through Eugene again.

    March 2014
  • We had a great time staying at this cozy place! Very private, clean, and walking distance to University of Oregon. Charlie and Geni were very welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. We would gladly stay there again or recommend it to friends.

    March 2014
  • This place was great for two co workers . It was nice being near a park to go for a morning run and also being close to such a great natural food store. Everything was clean and well kept, quiet area.

I'm happy, friendly, and love to meet people--just ask the clerks at the local stores and the neighbors walking by. I'm the owner of The EDGE, a dance and tumbling school and the co-owner, with my husband Charlie, of a neighborhood activity center called The Reach Center. In recent years I've had students that are the children of former students and somehow I manage to remember all their names! Charlie is a web developer and graphic designer. Our 3 wonderful kids have grown up and moved out. It feels right to share this house of many stories. Come visit!
