About Jana & Pamela
We're Pamela, Jana, Niko & Patsy; friends and neighbors who help each other manage our vacation rentals in Portland, Oregon. As a group of friends we thought the best results would be to work together ... that means greeting and welcoming and laundry and maintenance and support and just being great hosts. Come, live love a local in Portland. We're happy to help. #LiveHerePDX We all enjoy traveling, meeting guests, discovering customs, finding we're all pretty similar. All this happens so genuinely through opening our homes to Portland's visitors.
Jana & Pamela purchased this Studio in 1997
Why Jana & Pamela chose Overlook
The location to all that is Portland can't be beat. It's great to be out and about in the city but nice to come home to a neighborhood ... yet still be able to park the car and walk anywhere I need to go. What are guests have said" "All was done to make one feel welcome. So much nicer than being in a cookie-cutter hotel with its many -- if not more -- amenities. Plus a chance to meet some wonderful locals. I so enjoyed the window seat! Transportation was easy without a car -- access to Portland downtown and other neighborhoods accessible via MAX light rail and local buses. After a day of touring, felt as if coming home, surrounded by a nearby park and quiet residential streets. Left with a sense of having learned more about the city and its denizens by staying here." I live downstairs and can be available or if complete privacy is what works best, you will enjoy your private entrance to come and go as you please.
What makes this Studio unique
It's a warm and inviting vintage Portland home, well cared for, in a great location accessible to almost anything by foot, easy by car with plenty of parking, places to relax outside in either the back yard or the front porch, and quiet at night. Please come and enjoy our place in Portland.

Loved our stay at the Parlor. Thank you for being so easy and flexible.
Great location, great space, excellent hosts.
The space was exactly as described - no surprises. It is within walking distance to lots of great local restaraunts , bars and shopping. Pamela and Niko were quick to respond to any questions or requests and overall very helpful. If time allows, visit The Bad Habit Room for brunch - only open Saturday and Sunday. Everything was delicious, don't skip the homemade poptart!
Location makes it!
We rented the Parlor for 4 nights to attend a graduation in Portland. We were so impressed with how centrally located this place is, literally within 15 minutes or less to most everything.
We enjoyed the time we spent there, we were sad to leave! The space is very charming and is decorated perfectly Portland. Pamela is very down to earth and sets a classy tone throughout, very friendly and helpful. We especially loved the little welcoming touches(I won't spoil them for you).
If you're considering staying at the Parlor you won't be disappointed.
This apartment has many attractive features.
Parlor was an excellent property for our stay in Portland. Check in and checkout was very simple and went smoothly. The owners were very responsive communicators on whatever questions we had, and the apartment was well prepared so that most everything was self explanatory. The WiFi access worked flawlessly on both our laptop and our cell phones. We loved the spaciousness, and the windows and skylights that provided great lighting and air circulation. The bed was very comfortable. We had to get used to the low ceiling, which I bumped into a couple of times. We also found the location great for accessing Portland's fantastic public transit system, with a nearby MAX light rail station only a 5-10 minute walk away. The neighborhood is quiet and residential.The houses are somewhat old and some look a bit run down. It felt safe to walk, and there were quite a few interesting places to eat in the vicinity, which turned out to be just what we wanted after a day of sightseeing.
Great location and super cute!
The Parlor is as it looks in pics, well maybe even cuter in person. The hosts are welcoming and accommodating. It’s clean, comfy, & cute! We will be back
Cozy place to call home with great hosts
My girlfriend and I booked the Parlor for a last minute trip to Portland and it was an excellent place to call home for a long weekend. The setup is similar to a hotel amenity-wise, just (much) bigger yet somehow cozier. Arriving with the unit heated comfortably and a cold IPA in the fridge definitely contributed to the feel. Good vibes for sure! We also appreciated the ample parking and cheap gas nearby, as well as the neighborhood dive bar and yoga studio. Would love to be back, or check out some of Niko and Pamela’s other properties. They were exceptional hosts and provided great recommendations in the neighborhood and the city. Kachka and Toro Bravo are must-eats!
