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.

Lovely stay at West Haven-Sylvan
This is a very lovely studio apartment! Jacki and Rick have meticulous attention to detail in this lovely place. They were so helpful for our first time visit to the Portland area. We hope to plan another visit in the future.
A quiet place in a nice neighborhood. Within walking distance of a great little store that is more than a store, as well as another property( on AirBnb) that we used for our family reunion. I would stay here again.
Especially quiet and peaceful. Five Star in every way including location
Perfect, spotless and so very quiet and comfortable. The owners are amazing people and the whole property reflects an artistic and peaceful atmosphere. We will come back.
The Potempa's were delightful guests in every way. We loved getting to know them and appreciate the way they treated our home. It would be our pleasure to have them visit again.
A fantastic place and experience!
Wonderful owners. Beautiful lodging and area. They thought of everything. Very comfortable.
A beautiful, relaxing home with wonderful hosts.
My wife, two children and I stayed with the Hunlows for 5 nights. Rick and Jacki were both incredibly warm, engaging and accommodating to a family with young kids. They were inclusive from the moment of our arrival, and spared no time making us feel at home on their beautiful property. They had a complete listing of places to visit, eat, etc, in the Portland area, recommended the local park for my kids and even left a set of tennis rackets at our disposal. Rick and Jacki were communicative, helpful, and respected our privacy in turn. All in all, it was a wonderful trip and made more-so by the kind hospitality we were shown. I would recommend the Hunlow's home to anyone travelling to the Portland area. Your stay will be the better for it.
Joe, Kristin, Charly and Noah were a delightful family and full of life. Joe was great to communicate and they were so concerned with their two little ones being active. We enjoyed getting to know them and would welcome them back. When they left they were considerate of making sure everything was tidy. Great guests to have in your home.
Cozy and Close to Portland!
Very comfortable and accommodating studio, everything you need for a couples getaway or a small family retreat. Owners were very welcoming and not overbearing (the studio is connected to their home).
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.
