But I always go on craigslist to look at places for rent and the one's I've seen in Eugene were pretty cheap there....craigslist: eugene classifieds for jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events You can add your pricing range. GOOD LUCK!

Like Rhonda562 said....... Try Craigslist, I don't think you will have a problem finding a 2 bedroom apt in your price range

There are lots of apartments here, being a college town, and many of which I am sure would fit your needs for that price or even less. We are renting a 2 bedroom in a very nice area of Eugene where the schools are excellent, crime is almost non-existent, and we're right on the bike trail and walking distance to everything we need (market, bank, post office, etc.). We are paying around $700/month for 1050 sq. ft. plus storage space. We also have a sweet little yard to garden in and we rent a garage as well. We love it... aside from the fact that there's no swimming pool and no air conditioning. It's saving us a bunch of money while we look for our first home to buy. We are a family and our kids are comfortable here, too.

We have moved around lots for my husbands job... from state to state... and I found this place by looking around on the apartmentratings.com website. You might want to check that website out if you haven't found it already. Don't put too much stock into all the negative reviews posted there, though, as many renters seem to use the place to vent unwarranted issues. I always sort of "read between the lines" when I'm browsing there. We are in the 97408 zip code. It's a good, safe, and fun area - especially with kids.

Good luck with everything!

I used to live in some apartments in Eugene off of Chambers on the hill. I think they were called Prosepct Park. Not too sure. But they were pretty decent sized apts. The complex was pretty nice as well. The maintenance people were great. And on top of that, there are quite a few deer that come around. Even saw some wild turkeys at one point. I think the 2 bd were around $600-700. I know our 1 bd was only $500. A good place to look into. The only bad thing I can think of there is that when it gets icey in the winter, its hard to get up the hill somedays. But that only happened to us twice.
