Welcome to "Eugenia Jones and the Treasure of the Purple Palace!" Your home away from home.

Located near the heart of Eugene's trendiest urban-residential neighborhood, this luxuriously appointed apartment is minutes' walking distance from restaurants, tasting rooms, entertainment & other attractions.

Whiteaker Neighborhood, long known for its Bohemian vibe, is ideally located for exploring Eugene, 2 miles or less from all major features.

The space
Safari Base Camp (the kitchen/sitting area) is bright and open, but step through the beaded curtains and enter The Sultan's Palace (bed/bath areas) and you will be lured into the mysteries of the seraglio with its sumptuous hues and objets d'art. Luxe appointments like natural stone tub surround, double shower heads, "vintage" fixtures, crystal chandeliers and a golden temple door will delight the eye and make you feel like royalty.

THIS IS A SMOKE-FREE PROPERTY. We do not accept guests who smoke cigarettes (on or off site). NO SMOKING OR VAPING of any kind, of ANYTHING, is permitted on or near the property. Full-time tenants of the building sign strict "No Smoking" leases and expect a smoke-free environment. Our goal is to create a smoke and odor-free oasis for our guests and tenants.

NOTE: The Bed Nook, a queen bed enclosed on three sides, may not be suitable for those with mobility challenges.

Where you’ll be

Eugene, Oregon, United States

Located in Eugene's most popular residential neighborhood, Eugenia's Safari Base Camp and The Sultan's Palace are just two blocks from the heart of "The Whit" (Whiteaker Neighborhood), more recently gaining fame nationwide as The Fermentation District. Ninkasi, Oakshire, Hop Valley and a number of other microbreweries, spirits/wine-tasting rooms, dozens of one-of-a-kind eateries, food carts, bakeries, art galleries, live-music venues, and an ice-cream parlor can all be reached on foot in well under five minutes. En route, you might pass a stand of giant timber bamboo, a small flock of front-yard chickens, or one of Eugene's many fine murals, as well as lovely Craftsman and Victorian homes or an art car (veteran of many Burning Man events). Even a brightly painted, live-in school bus with a chicken coop on the roof! There's always something new to discover, right around the corner in The Whit. We even have a vintage arcade! (Blair Alley)

Longing for some fresh air? Eugene's Rose Garden (featuring an historic, 100+ year old cherry tree) and the Willamette River with its miles of bike and pedestrian paths, where you will likely see an osprey or catch a rare glimpse of a kingfisher, is a mere half mile away. Skinner's Butte, offering a panoramic view of the city is even closer. A five-minute walk will take you to the base of this ancient volcanic plug, where you might enjoy watching rock climbers among the basalt columns of the Climbing Park. Along the way, you might stop to enjoy the exuberant artistry of skateboarders in one of the country's first and finest, free, public skateboard parks. Hike to the top of Skinner's to familiarize yourself with the city's layout or watch the sunset. You might even spot one of our breeding pair of Bald Eagles, or their young! During the summer, you might catch a performance of Shakespeare up there, or the Roving Park Players free performances at another nearby park.

As noted above, this unit is located in Eugene's most popular URBAN-residential neighborhood. Like all cities of any size, these days, Eugene has a visible and growing homeless population. Most individuals in this population are harmless, but many are mentally ill and subject to outbursts of loud or bizarre behavior. I have owned this property for 12 years and none of my tenants have had a break-in, a bike stolen, a car vandalized, nor experienced an physical assault-- however, people who are not used to this environment and/or have significant needs for security may not find this area to their liking. It's worth noting, however, that as soon as one leaves the lobby of even the most posh hotel in downtown, one is likely to observe the same types of people and behavior.

"Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be experienced." Dune-Frank Herbert (per Kierkegaard) I love creating fun, unique experiences for people. When I travel, I prefer unique lodgings whether modest and homey or fun and funky. My goal as an AirBnB host is to provide a setting where wonderful surprises unfold and are savored and where cherished memories are made. I love Eugene! After visiting Eugene for the first time over Labor Day weekend 2016, I called my boss to say I'd be a day late getting back. Then I went to see a property and a realtor. Within two weeks I'd made an offer on a house, quit my job and started packing. Yes, I love this town and this state and I'm happy to share "insiders tips" with people who may be visiting for the first time, so you can enjoy your stay to the maximum and remember "that time we floated on the Willamette" or "that amazing Blue Pool we hiked to!" or "the best fries on the planet!" for years to come. (Also, "that AMAZING place we stayed! We've just GOT to go back there, sometime!" And tell your friends!)
