Space 500 sq ft
Property type apartment

About the property

Located between the Mount Tabor and Montavilla neighborhoods, Llama's Rest is a new 1 bedroom apartment in the lower level of a 100+ year old Portland home. Here you are walking distance to both the shops, restaurants and bars on Montavilla's main street and the beautiful Mt. Tabor park.

The apartment is private and complete with a King size bed, gas fireplace, gas stovetop/oven, microwave, dishwasher, stackable washer and dryer, TV with Netflix, WiFi, small dining area, iron/ironing board, coffee and tea, and a full-sized pull-out loveseat. Here you'll find all the comforts of home, whether for a weekend or for a month! We offer you complete privacy, including self-check in and out. Unless you need us, you won't see us. This is your home away from home!

Llama's Rest has a fun, Portlandy-feel with painterly inspired colors, polished concrete floors and subway tile in the kitchen and bath. Chandeliers and soft rugs provide just enough of a traditional, cozy touch that will almost make you want to spend the night in!

A couple blocks away you'll find the famous southern fare of The Country Cat, ultra-local craft brew at Montavilla BrewWorks, upscale cocktails at Vintage Cocktail lounge, enjoy coffee and pie in politically-inspired surrounds at Bipartisan cafe, and down-home pizza at Flying Pie. Montavilla also boats it's own vintage theater, the Academy, showing $4 movies and serving an excellent selection of local beers and kombucha.

It's easy to get around to your favorite places in Oregon from right here. On the eastside of Portland, we are located almost exactly 5 miles from Downtown Portland and a 15 minute drive from the Portland Airport (PDX). Llama's Rest is a couple minute drive to two major freeways, I-84 and I-205. Drive 15 minutes west on I-84 and you are in downtown, drive 40 minutes east and you are at Multnomah Falls!

Things to note:

Llama's Rest is located on a busy street in SE Portland and although the apartment is well-insulated street noise can still be heard inside. Footsteps, doggie-paws and voices will sometimes be heard upstairs, but we do our best to keep a light step. Although the apartment itself is entirely pet-free, there are two pups who live upstairs. They can sometimes be heard barking or playing in the yard, for that reason Llama's Rest is best for travelers who enjoy (or at least don't mind) four-legged fur babies.

About Jake and Kerry

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to look at our listing!

We are a couple who love to travel when we can, and hosting travelers when we're at home in Portland, OR! We've lived in Portland since 2012 and love the natural beauty of the Willamette Valley. Portland is situated between two large rivers, full of parks, trees and hiking trails. Here you are about 1.5 hours from skiing on Mt. Hood or cold water surfing on the coast.

Portland is the foodie and beer capital of the world, and there is something for every taste at an affordable price. The valley is also known for wine, especially pinot noir. The mild climate allows for the delicate pinot grape to thrive.

Whether you enjoy city sights or natural beauty, there is no shortage of culture and experiences in Portland!

Jake and Kerry purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Jake and Kerry chose Mount Tabor

The property is located in the Montavilla neighborhood, which is situated near transportation, the airport, major freeways and a short distance from the city center.

The sights and experiences of Portland are spread throughout the city in it's neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has unique and notable shops, restaurants and attractions. To experience Portland, visitors get to know the the city best by staying in one (or more!) of these neighborhoods.

Although many of Portland's nicest hotels are downtown, most of the places you've heard about are not found there! The city center (downtown) is more business district than tourist destination. This is why vacation rentals are the ideal way to get the most out of a Portland trip!

This property is located between two great neighborhoods (Mt. Tabor and Montavilla), and walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars on the neighborhood's main thoroughfare, Stark Street. Some of the unique features of this locations are the easy access from the airport (PDX), proximity to both locals shops and larger chain retailers, the beauty and tranquility of Mt. Tabor Park.

The apartment is very well-appointed! The bathroom is very spacious, clean, new, and well-stocked with possible-needed items. The full-size washer and dryer is nice, too. The kitchen is beautiful and perfectly equipped. Everything is exactly as described by the owner. The walk up to the door is very welcoming, lined with beautiful rose bushes. Sleeping is very comfortable, as the king bed is super comfortable and the room is totally dark with the shades pulled. Lots of personal decorating touches make Llama's Rest a beautiful place to stay. If we are ever in Portland again, we would definitely try to book our stay here!

Moved our son to Portland last week to attend PSU. I don’t get to VRBO that much and got lucky when I found this gem. Everything was perfect from ear plugs in the drawers to the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. My youngest son slept on the pullout couch and thought it was comfy. Perfect walking distance to food, drinks and movies. Must go to Vintage Lounge if you drink and stay here!! Older neighborhood with no problem parking on side street. I had no problem getting ahold of Jake and Kerry when needed. Thanks for a great mini vacation. I would definitely stay here again!

Really charming place, centrally located! Clean, stylish place with some delightful extras!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with location of this place. A bit of street traffic, but overall secluded and peaceful. Easy access to various areas in Portland. The apartment is very new and clean. The extras were appreciated~ snacks, staples and plenty of necessities.

We would definite return! The owners were easy to communicate with and very accommodating.

Five Star Plus Property

  • 5 of 5

Our first time visiting Portland and absolutely loved our 8 day stay at the 5 star Llama's Rest! The property is beautifully appointed and certainly like brand new. The hosts, Jake and Kerry, have addressed every detail to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. They were also available for any questions and responded immediately. The coffee, tea, and nondairy creamer were greatly appreciated along with the 2% and rice milk in the fridge. The oatmeal, spices, oil and vinegar were handy as well. The property is spotlessly clean and the linens were of high quality. The king bed was also very comfortable. Parking was easy and close to the property and it was easy walking distance to Montavilla restaurants, breweries, food carts and shops. In non rush hour, it took us about 15 minutes to get to downtown Portland to see the sights there. We highly recommend this property and would stay here on another visit to Portland!
