GAIL M. Mar 2021
Really beautiful landscaping and nice big lot provided plenty of privacy. The apt was clean and well appointed. I would have appreciated more place settings as I felt like I was constantly doing dishes. But all in all a great stay. Thank you really nice woman who we didn’t meet until we were leaving.
I would stay here again!
Manager response:

We stay here for almost a month and it was so nice, smooth, and relaxing. The space has everything you need and it’s in a great part of town. The host goes out of her way to ensure your stay is wonderful. Recommend this property to anyone who is interested.

We had 8 days at this well stocked and lovely home.
Located in south Eugene surrounded by foothills, the property is really a nice escape from the hustle and bustle.
Pros:
Clean.
Well stocked with kitchen items including spices, aluminum, trash bags, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, hand soap, napkins and plenty of dishes.
Plenty of linens.
Great shower with constant hot water and handheld shower nozzle.
Generous bathroom amenities.
Vast amount of storage space.
Plenty of extra blankets and pillows.
Great choice of board games.
Jacuzzi ( though we did not use )
Pet friendly.
Owner is lovely and doesn’t invade your space or privacy.

Cons:
Heater in bedroom and living room adequately warms home and has individual thermostat to adjust.
However, bathroom vent offers no thermostat & seems to be piped in from main home. This heat was on almost constantly and was uncomfortably hot.
So much so in December (winter) we needed to open windows to cool the place down.
No oven. Offers an electric induction hot plate which is super efficient and a convection small microwave sized oven. If you are wanting to cook anything that would fit into a larger oven it wouldn’t, and you only have access to one cooktop.
For us we both enjoy cooking and it was Christmas so that wasn’t something we were able to do successfully.
We are pet owners and love bed the fact that we could take our dog with us. However, there was a noticeable doggy smell in the home for the first few days. It seemed to dissipate as I burned candles and had the windows open due to the heat.
Please note that the home is exceptionally clean, but there was a doggy smell present.
Not in walking distance to stores/coffee etc.
That was fine for us. However, it is not in close proximity to an urban spread of stores so keep that in mind if that is what you prefer.

In summary, we would highly recommend this place to stay.
The Cons are nuances that are small, but nonetheless our experience there.

Additionally I left a personal item at the home. I was able to have Kevin from VACASA find the item and is posting it to me for a small fee. I am most appreciative of that!

This place has the perfect set up for a home away from home. Everything you need is supplied, it’s a great location in Eugene, walkable trails nearby, and you can even bring your pup along for the trip! I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend.
Terri C. Jul 2020
I highly recommend this location. It was quiet and comfortable with all necessary amenities. The sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable and my guest said the same about the bed. We really enjoyed the private deck, sipping wine while enjoying wildlife and natural setting.

I stayed at Serendipity with my dog for a week end visit to my U of O student daughter. Loved the location in a quiet neighborhood but a short drive to town and campus. Great trails close by and the home is very dog friendly. Well equipped and super comfortable. Also Thea the host was awesome and welcoming. Would definitely stay here again!
