About Jacki Hunlow
We love to travel and explore places but the best part is the people we meet and get to know. That is why we thought that having a short term rental would fit our personalities, we just like people. I have done design work for builders in the area, so this build out project was so much fun. Originally we built the suite for our moms- who each lived with us over time. Then we leaned about this industry and already had the space so in early 2017 we just added the separate entrance, the deck and refurnished it. It has been a great experience this last year. Rick and I are both from New Mexico and met in Albuquerque but fell in love with the northwest later in life. I am an artist doing oil portraits and bronze work. Rick is a cost analyst for a Semi-conductor company and works downtown in the "Big Pink".. that's what they call the biggest skyscraper.. lol.. We have a nonprofit: The Mothers Legacy Project: and work very hard with it. Additionally, the joy of our lives our our 9 children, 17 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. It's always someone's birthday!
Jacki Hunlow purchased this Guest House in 2001
Why Jacki Hunlow chose West Haven-Sylvan
The West Hills is a prime location for all of Portland. It's only 10 minutes from downtown, 30 mins. to the airport, an hour to the coast or to Mt. Hood. Yet you are in a quiet residential area away from the noise. Early in the morning or late evenings, it’s not unusual to see: deer, coyotes, raccoons, and squirrels walking in the neighborhood. Directly across the street in the Fall, blackberries are ripe for the picking.
What makes this Guest House unique
We have worked hard to create a one- of- a- kind space with original art work, antiques from the Northwest and colors that are appealing. We love the Northwest and want to help our guest discover it's beauty. The furnishing we all chosen for comfort and quality. Our guest book has lots of ideas and suggestions of what to do. Then you add our location, not only is it beautiful and quiet but we are 4 mins. driving time to St. Vincent's hospital, about a 15 mins. walk. Nike World Headquarters is a 10 min. drive. Intel World Headquarters is a 15 min. drive. Adidas headquarters is about 20 mins. away. Yet you can still be in the middle of the trees and hundreds of miles of walking trails within 15 mins too, the Rose Garden, the Japanese Garden, the Zoo to name a few. It is a unique place.

The place is lovely! Great attention to detail. Clean, comfortable and peaceful.
Jacki and Rick were amazing hosts! They were very friendly, accommodating and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They provided plenty of recommendations for activities and restaurants too. The guest house is decorated beautifully and had everything we needed. The kitchenette and extra amenities provided were especially appreciated and convenient. The neighborhood is quiet, and centrally located.
Lots of thought and love put into this place
The owners were really nice and helpful, giving me lots of tips on things to do, showing me around the place and how things work. That was very nice. Sometimes I stay in these places and can't figure out how to turn on a light or something. Lots of care was put into making this a great place for a visitor to stay. The bed was extremely comfy, and the decor is really attractive. The location is great too, very easy to get downtown without getting on a highway, and a close drive to Washington Park, which was my favorite place I visited here, I would stay here again for sure. Perfect for a solo traveler who wants a quiet place to turn in after a long day of sight seeing.
Lovely, quiet vacation rental in Portland Oregon
Tastefully decorated, very comfortable, best walk in shower ever. Heated floors in the bathroom. Owners very helpful with information on things to do and see in the area.
Quiet residential neighborhood with shopping and
restaurants close by. Only drawback for us we would have liked to be able to prepare
a meal. There is a microwave and state of the art coffee maker minimal kitchen facilities. Cozy and very comfortable bed.
Great spot to stay close to everything Portland has to offer!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here! We loved the guest house and the redwood on the balcony was gorgeous! It was just a short drive to downtown and Washington Park and had all of the amenities we needed. Jacki and her husband were gracious hosts and very responsive! She made sure we had everything we needed and they had great suggestions in the guest book on restaurants and things to do. Would definitely recommend!
Beautiful property, wonderful hosts!
Thank you Jacki and Rick!
The place to stay in Portland.
Private, luxurious, perfect location, gracious host and hostess. It doesn’t get any better than this, folks.
Paul and Randi are ideal guests in every way. They are so fun to get to know; interesting, engaging, enthusiastic and gracious.
Our redwood (Sequoia) tree is over 90' feet tall and over 90 years old. The deck is built 9-10' feet up into the tree trunk. The tree's canopy overhead is captivating and calming. You can hear our waterfall from your balcony deck. The inside is very clean and every consideration has been taken to make your trip pleasant and relaxing.
We are about 4 mins. away from Provident St. Vincent hospital, 10 mins. to Nike World Headquarters, about 15 mins. away from Intel's World Headquarters. We live in the beautiful and quiet West Hills area. It is a prime address for Portland because of it's close proximity to everything. A park with tennis courts, swings, baseball field and a stream are just down at the end of the block.
The Trimet system is wonderful. The Line 50 bus has a reduced schedule stop 50 yards from the front door. We live 4 mins. from the Sunset Transit Lite rail and bus central. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Trimet for trip planning. Many guests also use Uber.
