About This Listing
500 sq. foot studio with private entrance and bathroom with shower. Very quiet, overlooking the South Hills of Eugene. Sleeps up to 6. Very peaceful street - this is a wonderful space to have a personal retreat in or decompress after a busy day!
Beautiful private 500 square foot room with a separate entrance and bathroom with shower. Large windows on 3 of 4 sides. Bright, clean, oak floors, internet access, & plenty of parking (street and driveway). Complete with a nice view of the South Hills! Located on a very quiet street in the popular and accessible Friendly Street neighborhood.
Fridge, electric tea pot, and convection toaster oven available for use. (Please note the toaster is *not* a microwave, which may seem obvious to some but not everyone as on more than one occasion paper towels have been toasted in the toaster!) Organic coffee is also provided in the room. As for beds, there is a queen as well as full-sized bed plus a very comfortable 6 foot long sofa and twin mattress.
Located in a safe and quiet neighborhood just minutes to downtown Eugene (1.7 miles to City Center, 30 minutes walk) and only one mile or less to scores of highly rated restaurants, grocery stores, cafes, and natural food stores! There is a collection of menus in the room and I am happy to make recommendations for places to eat!
Also close to hiking trails (7 minute drive to the closest trailhead), playgrounds, parks, bark running trails, track, bike paths, farmers' markets, banks, and more.
There is the option of in-house therapeutic massage from the host, a licensed massage therapist since 2002. Making an appointment ahead of time will ensure a spot on the schedule, though it is fine wait until you are here. Rates are $65/hour, $90/1.5 hour.
Wifi is available in the room upon request.
Coffee and tea are provided in the room.
*PLEASE NOTE: this room is on a second story; there are 9 stairs to climb.
Interaction with Guests
Our schedules will of course determine the amount of time we have to chat, but I am always happy to talk about the area and/or what you've been up to in your travels! If you would like suggestions for nearby restaurants, amenities, etc, I am more than happy to make recommendations! I am ALWAYS available to help with any questions you may have, and there is a neighbor who can act as a back-up in case there is a problem when I'm not around.
The room has a private entrance, so it is possible to also have complete privacy if you would like a quiet retreat.
Check-in time is after 3:00, however, I can be flexible in some instances. It is my preference to greet you upon arrival therefore communication regarding your arrival time is appreciated!
The surrounding neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. The street is not a through-way to nearby well-traveled streets, thereby helping it to remain free of heavy vehicle traffic. There is a beautiful community garden 1/2 block down from the house with neighborhood work-parties during summer weekends. There are numerous playgrounds within walking distance (4 within 10 minutes) as well as a disc-golf course, bark-mulch trails, and hiking within a 10 minute drive. The University of Oregon is just a few miles away and almost a straight-shot from the house!
Close to bus stops, walking downtown takes 20 - 30 minutes. Very convenient by bicycle and car.
Transport to & from the Eugene Airport: The airport has a service called “Omni Shuttle” which you can schedule ahead of time. They have a kiosk by the baggage claim as well. There are also a host of taxis waiting outside the airport at all times. The cost for both of these options is around the same (approximately $20 - $25).
Other Things to Note
The street signs are chronically missing around here so if you have a device that will help you find your way here you'll have no problem. Otherwise, please call or text if you're having trouble finding it!
Also please don't mind the boxes outside the garage at the entry - the garage is going through a slow organization project!
Parking: Street parking is fine, unless I've communicated to you that you can park in the driveway. Please park in front of the house if possible, otherwise across the street is good. If you can avoid parking directly in front of the light blue house just south that would be great!
Come to the side door up the driveway when you arrive!
*Refrain from using scent/perfumes in the air or on your body while staying here (e.g. perfumes, colognes, hairspray) out of consideration for future guests and to maintain the neutrality of the space.*
Refrain from smoking inside the house or close to any doors or windows.
Remove shoes in the foyer if they are muddy or wet. In general, I prefer that shoes be taken off in the room so if you're able to bring slippers or thick socks it's much appreciated!
Any food scraps, tea bags, and coffee grounds (including the filter) may be tossed into the compost bucket on the red cart.
Remember to lock the outside doors when you leave, as well as when you are upstairs in the room.
Please refrain from bringing your pets to stay here, or any additional guests who aren't listed on the reservation.
Return your key(s) before you leave (you may leave them on the washing machine). Please lock the handle of the outside door behind you when you leave for the final time.
Please do not leave the AC or heat on high if you are out of the room for more than an hour. It does not take long to return it to the temperature you desire! If you have questions about how to operate the heat pump please don't hesitate to ask me.
If you need to do laundry please check with me first. There is a fee of $3.00/load and I prefer to do the laundry for you. There is no need to bring detergent.
Be mindful when adjusting the shades up and down - their vintage quality could invite mishap!
I like to practice direct communication. I hope you will also feel comfortable communicating directly with me about anything that is affecting your experience at my guest house!
And please have fun, enjoy yourself, make yourself comfortable! Please don't hesitate to call on me with any questions about the room or for directions around Eugene. Need suggestions for places to eat, be entertained, or get exercise? Just ask me, I'm always happy to help!
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Jenya's apartment was great! Exactly as described - comfortable, cozy, and in a quiet part of town but still near all of the bustle of Eugene. Jenya was a super warm and accommodating host - my fiancée and I were there for a weekend of running, which made our schedule crazy, but Jenya was still able to find a way to make sure everything worked out smoothly and that we had a good time. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Jenya!
Jenya is a warm and accommodating host. Our arrival at 1am did not pose a problem, and the room was as advertised. It's a huge studio with an attached bathroom. The mattresses were very comfortable and I slept uninterrupted both nights.
Jenya gave us some great restaurant recommendations. She is also a professional massage therapist, and my daughter and I received excellent massages in the room at very reasonable rates.
Jenya is a great host. Very upfront about expectations, and extremely hospitable. The space is quite spacious and well curated. The area is quiet and easy to get around. I enjoyed staying at this space!
This is indeed a lovely and light filld apartment, natural wood floors, comfortable bed, very cozy and inviting and very Eugene. Jenya is helpful and friendly.
