Modern Garden Oasis in Heart of Eugene


Property Details

Updated: Oct 18, 2016
Garden setting, private studio, close to the UO, Whiteaker, and Downtown

Beautifully designed modern studio, tastefully adorned with swanky and timeless décor. Set within a garden, French doors open to a gorgeous view, a lush feel, and a forest-like setting nearby. Among a lush and colorful garden, the studio provides a private and quiet retreat.

Star Studio is truly a magical space, a gem for those interested in quiet settings, romantic getaways, work space or a place to retreat. Well-equipped, spacious and comfortable, experience the latest in small home living!

Newly designed and furnished, Star Studio offers a fresh and peaceful environment where you are sure to relax and unwind. Tall ceilings and windows provide natural light and plenty of space to accommodate 2 people comfortably. The marmoleum flooring creates a warm feeling throughout the Studio, while appealing to those with sensitivities to chemicals or allergies. The windows at ceiling height provide a scene of the evening sky, moon and stars- a magical view!

A queen size, 11-inch memory foam mattress dressed with luxury linens provides maximum comfort for a good nights rest. The bed is a state of the art Murphy bed that can easily be converted into a sofa by gently lifting the bed to the wall (see photos and reviews for bed): guests rave about the comfort of the bed!

A full kitchenette provides everything one needs to prepare or heat meals, including a side by side freezer-refrigerator, a convection oven, an induction 2-burner cooktop, and a coffee & tea making station. Coffee beans, teas and spices are available for guests. There is a HDTV with established ROKU and Netflix accounts for streaming TV and movies, additionally there is a HDMI cord for guests to stream movies or shows from a laptop. The angled-shower and heated ceiling fan make for a spacious and comfortable shower in this small dwelling.

Enjoy the forest-like setting and garden from the deck of the Studio. Guests are encouraged to pick produce from the garden beds supporting lettuces, kales, peppers, blueberries, strawberries and herbs such as oregano, basil, cilantro and parsley.

There is a rental home on the property with privacy between the home and studio. Each rental has its own entrance and garden area.

Located in a private garden, Star Studio is a peaceful retreat-like setting while being located close to downtown Eugene, the UofO, Whiteaker neighborhood and the Willamette River. My goal is to make your visit to Eugene an enjoyable one, providing you with a restful, fresh and secure home away from home.

About the Owner

Engaging, friendly host interested in people, nature and creative endeavors. I have recently resigned as the Executive Director of a local non-profit organization that protects and enhances land and water through collaborative processes, research, design and habitat restoration efforts.

I now spend my time creating spaces to offer people a quality lodging experience with space, material and color. I hope you enjoy one of the spaces I have created with the traveler in mind.

Super nice studio

  • 5 of 5

Really super, cute studio space, clean and well maintained, good amenities, incl small fridge, counter top kitchen, and cooking & eating utensils. Quiet lovely secure neighborhood site. Ability to store food and cook crucial to me as multiple food intolerances mean its often best for me to make my own food. Nicely decorated and appointed, comfy double bed, good wifi connection. 10 min drive to UOE. Two blocks from deli/pub. Owner offered any assistance needed, but none required; complete privacy maintained in backyard garden atmosphere. Extra touches: flowers, food basics in kitchen, outside garden patio. Thanks for a lovely stay! Highly recommended.

From the Owner

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 quality and it is obvious the house has been well-cared for over the years. I loved the floorplan on the main level and the loft is truly dreamy on a clear evening with stars and the moon visible from the bedroom window in the loft. The Star Studio behind the house has a gorgeous view of the trees and flowers that characterize the neighborhood. This has become a lush garden space worth spending time in and perfect for relaxing. The neighborhood. Serene. Beautiful. Peaceful. Great neighbors!
