About Stacy Looney
Hello!! I am Stacy the owner of Lava Lounge and I live just above. I am the red head in the photo :) I returned to Portland 3 years ago from San Diego where I was for 17 years. I am a commercial real estate broker for Colliers and and have been in the business since 2001. I had a VRBO in SD as well and have helped my sister with hers here in PDX so you can rest assured I get it! I grew up in Idaho, where I attended U of I. I moved to PDX the first time in 92. I am excited to have just remodeled my Modern mid-century basement and have you as my guest (s). I hope you will enjoy the experience as much as I have and I look forward to showing you this lovely neighborhood of Kenton in North Portland. When you arrive you find a beverage of your choice, the creamer you prefer for Coffee and plenty of options for FUN! I also provide city maps, bike routes, MAX info and plenty of local info so you can get the most out of your stay!
Stacy Looney purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Stacy Looney chose Kenton
I purchased this property because it's something I have longed for many years. I absolutely LOVE Mid-century homes and this one had just the right bones! I was so excited to see the opportunity to remodel the lower level that it actually silenced me to take in all the exciting ideas I had about designing it for my future guests!!
What makes this Apartment unique
The location of this property speaks volumes! Located just steps from the Kenton MAX Station and downtown you will feel the simplicity of convenience all around you! The airport is a direct and easy 15 min. drive and the I5 is just a couple blocks away. There are plenty of shopping options within a less than a mile, including New Seasons Market, Fred Meyer, Target, Home Goods, Pier One, Petco and many many more. In town you will find local shops like Fang & Feather Pet Store, Fino, Kenton Station, Cultured Cavemen, Swift & Union, Wells Fargo Bank, Disjecta Art Gallery, Posies Coffee and Mantel for unique crafts and gifts.

SUBTERRANEAN HIDE AWAY IN A VERY COOL NEIGHBORHOOD
I stayed for 6 weeks at the Lava Lounge and was very pleased with every aspect of the property. The apartment is well appointed and the owner Stacy was very welcoming and helpful during my stay. The apartment is downstairs and has a private entrance which passes through the phenomenal backyard, which is equipped with both gas & charcoal bbq grills, propane fire pit, and even a horseshoe pit. The apartment has it's own laundry with a high end washer/dryer. Bedrooms were very clean and extremely comfortable. Gas fireplace created some nice ambience while shooting pool and sucking down a few brews. The apartment is in the Kenton area, which has some good eateries and cool dive bars, including the "World Famous Kenton Club" (google it). One very important feature for me was the parking availability, which is rare at most VRBO's in Portland. I had a truck and a motorcycle during my stay and was able to park both of them safely up the driveway and even parked my bike behind a secured gate. I have been a "frequent flyer" with VRBO for a long time, staying in beach houses, mountain cabins, and city apartments. I can say without any reservations whatsoever that my stay at the Lava Lounge was one of the more enjoyable and memorable ones. Should the opportunity arise for me to visit Portland again, there is no doubt I will be contacting Stacy to check on availability. If you are thinking about staying here, BOOK IT NOW! I can guarantee you will have no regrets...
Hidden gem in north Portland
We had the opportunity to stay at the LUX Lava Lounge for about 10 days in September, 2017. The space is exactly as depicted - clean, spacious, retro-modern, and well appointed. There is clearly pride of ownership reflected here. We arrived early evening and easily accessed the property. Food and beverage were only a couple of blocks away by foot. We enjoyed being near the small Kenton commercial center which offers a variety of alternatives for food, coffee and evening relaxation. And all the amenities of Portland were easily accessible with nearby freeway access to I-5 and the light rail system.
The owner, Stacy, was available, responsive and accommodating. The few needs we had during our stay were resolved quickly; for example, on one occasion when the coffee pot failed, she brought her pot down from upstairs for us to use that morning and had a new one by early afternoon. We appreciated her attention to the details!
So, good location, lovely property, great host. All 5 star. I will note that the property is the basement of a home, so if you need a sunny, bright place to greet your day this probably isn't for you. But for rest, restoration and comfort, the LUX is top notch!
Exactly as advertised-spacious, clean and with a Washer and Dryer!
Stacey was a great host, welcoming and friendly. She was available to us for questions or helpful advice and otherwise we came and went as we needed to. The apartment was spacious and nicely furnished just as pictured. The full sized washer and dryer was convenient - we did so many loads of laundry as my son was moving into the dorms and buying everything needed there in Portland! Great location.
Thank you Teri and thank you for taking the time to write this great review! It was great to have you and your son as my guests and so glad it was what you had expected. Please come again when you come to visit your son up here!
Great location and great host!
Great private lower level with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, with full kitchen and living room. Backyard is large with space to sit and lounge. Stacy lives upstairs and is an extremely attentive host that you can text and speak with at any time - she answered all of our questions and provided us with a lot of information! Would highly recommend this rental to others and would stay here again on my next visit!!
Thank you Stephen! It was so fun to have you and Ester and Nathan & Ryan too! You are all fantastic and Kashmire & I enjoyed having you here. I so appreciate you taking the time to write me a review and I hope you will stay here again should you find yourselves in Ptown!!
Really Cool Place
First off, the location is awesome. Walking distance to food, bars, and shops in the very cool neighborhood of Kenton. The space itself was also awesome. Totally updated but with a cool, retro vibe. Plenty of space. Everything you could need to be comfortable. The owner is really nice and can fill you in on all the good places to eat and fun things to do. We really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you Matt!! I really enjoyed having you and Christy as my guests and I am glad it was a location that worked so well. Hope you are doing great in Vancouver and enjoying your new home!!
Clean, fun, handy location.
Stacy is very attentive to every need and communicates promptly. The unit is roomy and clean and the decor is fun. A beautiful yard complete with fresh berries is handy to lounge in the outdoors. We had no complaints, just relaxation in a convenient location and everything we needed!
Thank you Pam! I so enjoyed meeting you and your crew and really appreciate you taking the time to write this wonderful review!! I hope you will come stay with me again soon~!
Downtown Kenton is just steps away and there you will find a park, coffee shop, a few restaurants, the library, hair salon, pet store, antiques, thrift shops, Laundromat, and other fun shops! The Kenton Station MAX stop is also just a 1/2 block from the driveway. I5 connection is super close and we are only 15 mins from the Airport.
