About Eve

Engaging, friendly host interested in people and creative endeavors. I spend my time running a local non-profit organization that protects and enhances land and water through collaborative processes, research, design and habitat restoration efforts. I also have a business in interior design, creating beautiful and comfortable living spaces for myself and others.

I have established the gardens around the home to create a peaceful, beautiful setting with the hope of providing an oasis for guests to relax into and enjoy. I love being a host, providing a beautiful home and garden for others to experience and feel at home during their visit to Eugene. I love meeting interesting and friendly people and I look forward to hosting you!

Eve purchased this house in 2015

Why Eve chose West Eugene

The moment I walked in to this house, I loved it and could see the potential to create a beautiful home for vacationers, and thus the creation of Jackson Star began! The craftsmanship is of high quality and it is obvious the house has been well-cared for over the years. I loved the floor plan on the main level and the loft is truly dreamy on a clear evening with the stars and moon visible from the bedroom window in the loft. The art studio behind the house has a gorgeous view of the trees and flowers that characterize the neighborhood. The neighborhood is full of great restaurants, markets and bakeries all within walking distance . Serene. Beautiful. Peaceful. Great neighbors!

What makes this house unique

Close to the Whiteaker neighborhood, Willamette River, central downtown Eugene and the University of Oregon.

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in this house with our two children. This is not a house for small children, but our older boys (10 and 14) were fine. We've been staying in the neighborhood for years now, in order to be near my mom's place, and we love it. You can do everything on foot, and the shops and restaurants are the best in Eugene. The garden is very pretty and the big table is really nice for eating outside (there is a supermarket and a health food store right around the corner). Everything is just like in the photos - very nicely decorated and well-equipped. The owner is very helpful and replies to emails right away. We definitely recommend the Jackson Star!

Owner's Response: Alycia, It was a pleasure hosting you and your family at Jackson Star, especially since many of the neighbors anticipate your company every other year!! The house is best suited for children ages 0-2 or 12 and older, however, I encourage parents to reach out to me to inquire whether the house is a good fit for their children.
