Interaction with Guests

I am happy to help with anything needed. My family lives a few blocks away so I can be available by phone and can be there shortly if needed.

The Neighborhood

The Overlook is named for the nearby bluffs that look down onto the city center and the Willamette River, offering great sunsets and activity areas (lots of dogs, running and biking). There's a strong core of restaurants, bars, grocery stores and coffee.

Getting around

Excellent public-transport options, with bus and MAX (light rail) lines (including airport access) both within a brief walk. The Pearl District and downtown are within 10 minutes, either by bike or car. Walk to the Mississippi District where there is an excellent selection of local restaurants, bars, boutiques, groceries and coffee shops.

Public Transportation: Our home is located in North Portland, one block southeast from the MAX Yellow Line train (North Killingsworth Station) and the #72 Bus line.

Bicycle: North Williams/Vancouver Avenues is the main biking artery through this part of town. This couplet runs North/South and crosses both North Alberta and North Killingsworth streets that lead to our home. We are located approx. 1 mile West of this road.

Driving: Our home is only a few blocks from Interstate-5 - Alberta Street/Swan Island exit if you/re heading South, or the Killingsworth exit heading North.

About Stephani Hayden

We love to travel.

Traveling is one of those really important spices of life.

My name is Stephani, I'm originally from DC and have been living in Portland since 2006. I love living in the Pacific NW especially Portland since we have some of the best food in the country!!

John is a small business owner of an international website that helps to teach English. He got the idea while living in Japan and seeing the need for a website to teach pop culture English. He is an avid camper, hiker and outdoor lover!

In 2012 our family grew. Ryder is a year and a half and lets just say he is living the life. Living in Portland is amazing we are 1hr from the coast and 1hr to the mountains. We do a ton of hiking, camping, and eating amazing food.

Stephani Hayden purchased this house in 2006

Why Stephani Hayden chose Portland

This home is amazing. It has an open floor plan, high ceilings, and lots of light which makes for a perfect home. We are 5 mins to downtown, a 5 min walk to the light rail, 10 min walk to Mississippi (tons of restaurants and shops). Our block is street lined and quite.

We love Overlook. The most connected spot in NoPo, our neighborhood is quiet but within a few blocks are restaurants, shopping, movies, parks, transportation, anything and everything you need.

Nice Home... Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a nice home, I suspect this is a nice place to stay. My husband and I enjoyed the wonderful communication and support provided by Stephani. The house is nicely filled with needed supplies for your stay. We found that a car was necessary, especially with the rainy days in Portland. In addition, there wasn't much in the vicinity for shopping, so going further out was not optional as we originally hoped. A fireplace (even if non-stationary) would add an additional element of coziness to the home, as well as an upgrade in cable system---especially when "rained in". The chalkboard on the kitchen wall is a great idea if art is displayed, however as it stands, there are just random comments from other families who have stayed in the past. Lastly, please use caution when returning to the Master bed, as running into the bedrail is truly painful...would suggest a change for safety purposes.

However, things that work in the rentals favor are:

1) Responsible and Responsive Owner

2) House---Very Nice home, Warm and Welcoming---Clean

3) Functional---Fridge, Internet, Easy House Access, Fully Stocked Kitchen

4) Sleeping---Comfortable Mattress & Pillows in Master Bedroom

5) Accomodations---Shower Soap/Shampoo/Conditioner, Comfortable Bath Towels

6) Nice Community/Location

Overall, nice home...we enjoyed our stay

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

A very charming, comfy, clean and quiet house located just two blocks from our son and daughter-in-law. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance and the MAX Light Rail stop is so close. Cooking was easy as the kitchen is well equipped. The back bedroom was surprisingly spacious, quiet, and comfortable. Our son recently married and it was perfect for hosting a small gathering to meet his wife's family. Having off street parking was a nice bonus. The grounds were very well maintained, and there is a cute little backyard with chairs and a table for outside dining. My husband was on a working vacation and the Wi-Fi functioned perfectly. Stephani was a sweetheart and great to deal with. We would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay there again!

Great Portland stay

  • 5 of 5

Portland bungalow with updated kitchen and bath, solid Wifi and cable, Apple TV yet still retains classic charm. Perfect location for those looking for north Portland locale. Owner - Stephani - is great, helpful and responsive. We've stayed other places in the north Portland area, but keep returning to this Overlook house - its cleanliness and quirky charm help make it the best by far!

Great Portland Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in this house. It was clean, comfortable and nicely located. We were in town for a wedding and it was a perfect place for our base camp. Comfortable beds - kitchen equipped - great TV - nicely decorated.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend in Portland - my husband, myself, and our almost 4 year old. Staying at this house made it work so well for us. It was clean, outfitted with all we needed, and a great location. Our daughter loved her room and all the toys and books that were there for her to play with! Being in a neighborhood where she/we could hang on the porch in the morning and be close to the areas we like - Alberta, Mississippi - was perfect. Stephani was very helpful with anything that we needed. We are happy to have found somewhere that will work for our family in visiting Portland from Bend in the future!
