About This Listing
Our VW pop top bus, sleeps 2-3 people cozy. We are centrally located in the new brewery area with Hop Valley, Ninkasi, and Oakshire. We are two blocks from the river path to enjoy miles of biking or walking. And walking distance to tons of great restaurants.
It is a 1977 vw camper bus. With a queen size bed with brand new soft foam and new upholstery on the bottom level and a single bed up in the pop up. It is private with curtains all around the windows. It has a space heater in it that keeps the space toasty on cold nights. this is camping style, so bring your own bedding. If you need bedding you need to make special arrangements with us ahead of time, for an extra fee.
There is a fire pit for camp style cooking. And in addition there is access to the kitchen and the bathroom. We have dishes and a coffee maker. There are many nice wineries, pubs and restaurants around here also- Coffee shops, soul food, Japanese food, pizza, authentic Mexican food, and pubs with great food choices from salad to meatloaf.
Interaction with Guests
We are right off of 1st street, on adams st. Adams zig zags a bit when crossing 1st street. We are on the north side of 1st street.
I love Whittaker neighborhood. It has such mix of things to do. You can go to a choice of two different wineries territorial or the eugene wine cellars, both have very nice tasting rooms with love music often. There are many restaurants and pubs- with live music and great food. There is an bar arcade, where you can go and play old pinball and pacman. There is an great coffee shop that has local and vegan options- also live music. There is one of the best desert bakeries in all of oregon- Sweet life. And our local artist open up there studios for a Friday art walk, where many artist serve wine, cheese and crackers. If you want to go on a walk or a hike the path along the river has about 12 miles of path. With a butte to walk up and see a view of eugene. There are rock columns for rock climbing. The river for kayaking, canoeing, tube floating or swimming. And if you need to pick up something at the valley river center mall, it is a short 15 minute walk on the river path. There really is something for every one.
The VW bus is parked in the drive way under a beautiful grape arbor. It has an ice box into that is available for use. The bus is to be used as a room only. It is not available for driving. We are located in the whiteaker area of Eugene. There is always live music at Sam bonds garage three blocks away. Great chili and beer at Hop Valley, which is across the street. We are walking distance to the Eugene Celebration, Whiteaker block party, and saterday market. It is a great place to land in when you are in Eugene.
Other Things to Note
There seems to be some confusion. We have two listings. This is the VW bus. The other listing is a studio with a bathroom, that can be rented seperately. However, if you rent them both the same night we will give a $15 discount.
We should be here to welcome you and show you the vw quirks. You can park in the drive way behind the bus. It is unlocked. Please don't use the side sliding door. Just the front doors. And the back hatch.
We really enjoyed our short stay! The VDub bus provided us a cozy place to sleep. Id like to come back during the spring/summer when everything is in bloom and use the fire pit! Theryre dog and cat made good company as well! Sleeping in the candle lit bus def added to 'the whit' experience of Eugene.
Definitely a unique Eugenian vibed experience and very economical way to see Eugene. I came here during a big football game so hotels were nonexistent and only a couple places left on Airbnb. Definitely not my typical situation but it ended up working out for us. For a night or two I highlighy recommend giving it a go as long as you are flexible, much longer may be a crampy situation. 1 bathroom inside that you share, along with the entire four person family. Amber was very responsive and a nice person. This part of Eugene has really changed and there’s a couple cool breweries a block or so away. Cool experience. Eugene is such a great place. I’d recommend this place as long as you can deal with the set up.
I had a very positive experience staying in Amber's little green bus camper. It was warm, cozy and comfortable. I met the her two teenaged children and the dog. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Amber was a wonderful hostess.
We'd wondered about whether we would be interested in buying a VW camper and this gave us the perfect chance to try one out. We loved our stay in Amber's camper. Though we weren't around long enough to take her up on it, we appreciated the offer of kitchen use.
Amber and her whole family were great, the van was comfy and secure from the rain! Couple trains in the night were a bummer, but other than that everything was great! Love the neighborhood and easy access to everything!
This lovely VW bus was JUST what I needed! A warm and dry place to rest my head :-) Amber was fantastic in communicating with me before my arrival to make everything go smooooothly for me. Thanks, Amber! Such a great option in Eugene!
