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.

Great place and fantastic location
The place was perfect, had great amenities and Stacy was a wonderful host. Loved being so close to the Max and parks and restaurants.
Well decorated and supplied.
Enjoyed our stay at the Lava Lounge with my family. Stacy has beautifully decorated and supplied her property with everything you need from a home. It was comfortable and cooled by AC during the heat waves of Portland. Close to transportation but still would recommend a car to explore the surrounding area.
Kids really like the pool table and how neat it was. Pleasant hostess. Right near Muni stop.
Kids loved the backyard. Very kid friendly. But grownups enjoyed it too.
Luxe lava lounge living was luxurious
We enjoyed our stay in the "lounge" with our granddaughters.....my husband and I enjoyed the pool table and did the Crater Lake puzzle. It was a convenient location for our day trips. The accommodations and layout worked well for all 4 of us.
A perfect fit--new, clean, great location,beautiful yard & wonderful host!
You will love staying here with Stacy! My husband, two kids and I stayed here for 7 nights during the heatwave in July. Stacy is such a welcoming, available host. The property is located 1 block from the Max light rail train. You can come here straight from the airport, if flying in. If driving, there is ample off street parking-you never need to worry about finding a parking space. Her home itself is lovely: the space is sparkling clean and everything is brand new. There are very few windows because this is a basement. I thought it may feel claustrophobic and that it would be musty, but Lux lava lounge is the opposite. The air was very fresh and due to being underground, always a pleasant temperature. There are no windows to sit and look out of, but we were busy all day, so that did not matter to us. Plus, her backyard is available--beautiful, private and quiet. One day hit the upper 90's, so Stacy put the A/C on, which was a nice treat-but not necessary. The kitchen is very well-appointed, if you enjoy cooking you will have everything you'll need. We primarily just cooked breakfast and ate out at one of the many delicious restaurants in Portland. This particular section/neighborhood of Portland is called Kenton. The downtown of the Kenton is 2-3 blocks away--a very short walk to excellent restaurants and coffee shops. Staying at Stacy's property is a perfect respite from the busy big city. Two things to be aware of: One, there were always 4-6 homeless people between her house and the Max rail. They caused no problems that we saw, but if you are looking for an upscale area this may not be for you. Kenton is a more up-and-coming neighborhood. Also, due to being in the basement, you can hear every step (and at times Stacy's conversations!) from above. If you are a light sleeper, or like to sleep in, this is something to think about. Her hours matched ours fairly well, so it was rarely an issue. Having a fan on (located in a closet) for noise-masking & earplugs was a good solution for us--3/4 of us are VERY light sleepers. That said, we LOVED staying at the Lux Lounge! It was a cozy place to come home to each day. My daughter may be attending college in Portland, and if she does, this would be first on our list as a place to stay for visits!!
Portland at its best!
Stacy is a warm, welcoming, and gracious host. She has remembered every detail so her guests can enjoy most of the comforts of home. You’ll have a private entrance, access to her backyard and BBQ, a full kitchen, and spacious quarters. She has provided local food and service recommendations. Great location: most places we went were 15" away, and we travelled in every direction. Would definitely come again. Very happy with both the accomodations and destination.
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.
