Guestbook comments from the owner
This was a great rental experience. This is a beautiful, very customized home, clean, with every amenity one could wish for, great customer service from the owners, Debbie & Curt. I would recommend it without reservation.



BTW, I'm an avid DIY home remodeler and this house, designed by the owners, is a cornucopia of clever and functional ideas for storage and space utilization, not to mention the firehouse-type pole for sliding down from the upper floor! -- it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so I slid down twice! ;-) Fun place.



Thanks to Debbie and Curt for sharing their home.

Debbie and Curt married in 2009. Curt, a builder, grew up in Oakville, Washington. Debbie is originally from Sacramento California, but has lived in Eugene since 1995. She has a 9 to 5 and loves house design. The Elkay House, built in 2000, was designed by Debbie. Curt has since made additions and improvements to it. Together, Debbie and Curt design new homes, which Curt then builds to sell.

We like to travel and between us have visited 26 countries. Prior to meeting Debbie, Curt sailed solo for 3 years; to Hawaii, then made his way to New Zealand.

We enjoy sports, photography, writing and especially our combined 5 adult boys and their growing families. We have a 2 acre place on the Mohawk River in Marcola, Oregon, which keeps us busy.

Debbie and Curt McKim purchased this house in 2000

A unique custom home set in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by trees, centrally located. Sandy is our dedicated housekeeper, who makes sure everything is fresh, clean and inviting.

Fully stocked kitchen with gas stove, KitchenAid mixer.

Natural gas barbeque in the back courtyard.

Fine wood craftsmanship, some of the beds are handmade from Central Oregon juniper.

A cabinet with bus tubs in the kitchen so that dirty dishes never have to be out.

Central laundry room with chutes from the master and upstairs bathroom.

Hand-crafted art glass feature windows designed by Debbie.

BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE, CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this home for several days while preparing for our daughter's wedding in Eugene. All of the hotels were booked for the NCAA track championships, and we are so delighted that we were forced to look for lodging elsewhere, and ended up staying at the Elkay House. The owners are responsive and kind, the large master bathroom was perfect for getting dolled up as mother of the bride, and there is detailed information about the house that made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The house is large, the kitchen is fabulous, the rooms are comfortable, the flowers were blooming in the yard....it was perfect for us. It was nice to know that Sandy, who lives in a separate building behind the house, was close and available if we needed anything. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post your kind words, Kimberlee. We are glad that the Elkay House worked out while you prepared and gathered for your daughter's wedding. Hopefully, it will be a part of happy memories of that special time.

It is nice too, that you mentioned the housekeeper, Sandy. She makes everything as clean and welcoming as can be and we feel lucky to have her.

OUR SECOND HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to stay! We had water damage at our home and stayed 6 nights in the only Hotel in Eugene with a kitchen for over $240.00 and then found this wonderful home with everything and more than you could ask for. Location was closer to our kids school than our own home and easy to access local restaurants and grocery stores. The kitchen had everything you would ever need for small families or a family reunion. The interior has very unique wood work through out that you won't find anywhere. Master suite has a walk-in shower with two shower heads and all the soap, shampoo, conditioner and tea tree oil you can use. Front room has a great stereo with surround, flat screen TV and don't forget the Fire Poll. Up dated appliances, washer and dryer.....great location all around. It was like house sitting for a friend and so much better than any hotel!!!
On site manager was very helpful and easy to get a hold of. Owner was great to work with and let us stay for two additional days at a discounted price due to our home not being ready for us to move back into.
This place had everything you could ask for and then some!
Highly recommend staying here!!!!!!

Owner's Response: At some point, most of us have to contend with house damage, insurance adjusters and extensive construction repairs. We are glad that your family enjoyed staying at the Elkay House while your water damage was being repaired.

GORGEOUS HOME IN EUGENE!!

  • 5 of 5
A group of Roller Derby officials stayed in this home for four nights. We can't say enough wonderful things about this property! It was beautiful in its detail. The firemans pole was a definite hit lol. I will say that unforunately the description is a bit misleading. We were short a bedroom and someone who was expecting one didn't get it. There are TWO queen beds upstairs and the futon. There are not THREE queen beds upstairs. Not a deal breaker for us returning, but we would have planned better for the amount of people coming. This kitchen had EVERYTHING you could possibly need. We were able to make our meals there which was so nice. The beds were all comfy, with great bathrooms as well. We never heard or saw the person who lives in the apartment behind the house. The photos don't do this home justice, it really was lovely. Hope to return again!

Owner's Response: Dear Megan and Roller Derby officials - we are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Elkay House and found the beds comfy and kitchen and baths to your liking. I searched the ad to find why you expected another bedroom upstairs and found that I listed all of the bedrooms as upstairs in the "amenities" category. The master is actually downstairs. We depend on online information to make our travel plans, so I was happy to be able to correct this for future travelers and apologize if you found it misleading. We hope you and your fine group will stay with us again on your next visit to Eugene.

PERFECT FOR THE OCCASION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 2 nights with all our family to attend our son's wedding. There were 9 of us all together and the home was the perfect place for us all. Everything was as indicated, well stocked, clean, tidy and just perfect for our needs. Thanks for everything, we had a lovely time.

HOLIDAY CHARMER

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent our Christmas here and it was perfect! When we entered we were pleasantly surprised to see that the home was decorated for Christmas and that made us feel very much at home. The kitchen is AWESOME, we did NOT go out to eat once and was able to invite local family over for dinners throughout the week of our stay. This was a true Holiday Charmer and we will stay here again and invite others to do the same.
