We had a very nice stay at Deirdre's home. Everything at her home was prepared for us so we had a very comfortable stay. Her location is very quiet and well located.
I had a very nice stay at the studio, everything was in the best order, Deirdre had thought about everything, she even baked delicious muffins for breakfast. I will definitely stay there again. Thank you for being so flexible on the check in and out time, as well as your kindness.
Home away from home. Great attention to details and use of a small space. Deirdre made the yummiest scones for breakfast, stocked with fresh coffee beans and all shower necessities. Loved waking up to birds chirping. Definitely money well spent and would stay here again.
Very nice hostess. Love the homemade muffin that she prepared for me, its very yummy! The studio is very comfortable and lovely :)
Deirdre messaged me about our ETA as she had afternoon plans--she was much more on the ball than I was, as we'd stayed up late the night before and were staying a bit out of town. The place is as advertised and Deirdre keeps the driveway free for guests to park in, which is nice when it's raining! It is attached to a family home and you do hear a few noises coming through, so if you have sensitive hearing you may want to bring earplugs. The neighborhood has the usual mix of funk, creativity, and elegant quirkiness I associate with Eugene.
Deirdre is a very nice hostess. The studio is very comfortable and tastefully designed.
Deirdre helped me to make an excellent evening in her little loft space. The room is filled with sunlight, immaculate in upkeep, and beautiful to sleep in. We kept discovering more furnishings and kitchen utilities that made us want to stay longer! The muffins she brought us were a perfect final touch. Thanks for everything Deirdre!
I like living in Oregon. Raised our family here. Love the outdoors. Have an organic garden and a home based business. We do lots of cooking and take a casual approach to living and traveling. Like independence when traveling and would enjoy like minded travelers. Am willing to accomodate to visitors but not fuss over.
