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.

Had a wonderful weekend staying at this beautiful house!
Great location and the owners were very accommodating! Felt like a true home away from home and couldn’t have asked for a better experience! We will definitely be back 😊
It was our delight to have Cynthia stay with us. She was an ideal guest in everyway and we would love to have her return.
The minute we walked in I knew we had picked a fantastic property.
As great as the pictures of the property are, they don’t really do it justice. There is far more room than I thought there would be. We were a couple travelling with our adult daughter and found there to be plenty of room for all of us. It was decorated beautifully and was immaculately clean. Wait until you see the spectacular Cedar tree that is part of your deck, amazing!! The neighbourhood is quiet and feels very safe. We took advantage of the park nearby to go for walks and play tennis.
Jacki and Rick were wonderful to deal with and made us feel right at home. They shared lots of information about Portland and the surrounding area with all kinds of information on things to see and do. As I said upon first seeing it in person “we will be back!”
A side note, not related to our stay here at all, but rather simply as a tip for anyone travelling in Portland. A navigation system or a GPS is a must!!!
Thank you Rick and Jacki
Glorie and her family were ideal guests in every way. We enjoyed meeting them and having them stay with us. They were thoughtful and left our home in a clean and tidy manner. We would love to have them stay with us anytime!
Wow! this place blew my mind. I loved walking around the neighborhood and the room was so clean and cozy. The window in the bathroom looking over the tree on the deck was so clean I thought it was not there. The hosts were away but Pam was super helpful and kind. I would stay here again for sure!
Cozy and quiet
I loved my stay! It is very comfortable, with all the things you need and more. Owners are very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely come back should an opportunity present itself.
Beautiful home away from home!
The property was beautiful, especially sitting outside under the tree for a morning coffee and read. Jacki was quick to respond and although she wasn’t home, her neighbor welcomed us and even brought us baking! Wonderful experience and would most definitely recommend!
Quiet and upscale neighborhood
Amazingly gracious host and neighbors welcome you to a very modern and comfortable apartment. This is literally an extension of the owners home, within a quiet neighborhood and easily accessible to anywhere you may want to go. A personally nurtured garden patio awaits you outdoors for a relaxing evening, or a giant Cedar nestled beside your apartment landing...an exceptionally manicured apartment awaits those yearning for comfort in Oregon!
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.
