Portland, Oregon
In Portland's Historic Alphabet District

ArtFulLife is a comfortable, stylish, art-filled pied de terre in the heart of Portland’s historic Alphabet District. With 800 sq ft, it’s big enough to spread out, relax, and enjoy car-free urban living. This unique, quirky basement unit in one of the neighborhood’s Good Old Houses is home to an eclectic collection of original artworks, and sits just 50 feet off 23rd Avenue, one of Portland’s iconic shopping streets. Far from being just another sleek condo in yet another soulless high-rise, ArtFulLife is perfect for the urban adventurer – full of personality with a clean, contemporary décor that’s funky without the funk.

Built in 1885 and converted to a duplex 20 years later, the gracious home has changed with the neighborhood. The duplex was transformed into a sleeping house in 1940 for the...

I enjoyed my stay in the non hipster pad! The area was awesome with so many shops and restaurants within such close walking distance. Loved the little wine bar across the street! Fred was a pleasure to work with and the accommodations were great!

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope to see you back in the future!

Only about 100 feet from NW 23rd. Dozens of shop, restaurants, and breweries. If you have a car pay the extra $10.00 per night for parking. The flat is very cozy.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay Marty. We look forward to seeing you in the future!

We drove from Seattle and paid the extra $10 to park the rental car in the driveway. Make sure you dont forget to lock the car doors! We must have left a door open..when we stepped outside to head out for the morning all the doors of the car were wide open and the car was ransacked; even though we...

Management response:

I am really surprised to hear about the car sacking. Please send me details as a police report should be filed and my neighbors - who share the parking need to know. We are very proactive on crime in the neighborhood and I want to do what is necessary to make sure this never happens again - it is the...

About the neighbourhood
ArtFulLife is situated about 75 feet off NW 23rd, Portland iconic shopping and eating street. From this location it is an easy walk to the streetcar (3 blocks away), to the Pearl District (10 blocks away), to downtown (1 mile), Washington Park (less than a mile - up a hill), and much much more. It is all best experienced without a car!
