ArtFulLife II - A level above
The view from the front door as you enter ArtFulLife II.
Looking left from the front door you see the original fireplace (inactive) from the 1888 house.
Looking right from the front door you see the kitchen open to the living room.
The step saver kitchen is essentially apart of the living room.
A portfolio of photographs by a European artist hangs above the bed. The title is Carved and Craved.

The bedroom window looks out over the building’s front porch to the street.

This place was centrally located, cozy and eclectic. It was in a perfect location to walk to wonderful restaurants and boutiques on NW 23rd. The flat is on a cherry blossom lined street and the bed is SUPER comfy. Plus, Fred is friendly and helpful. We will definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Portland!

Really enjoyed our short stay in Portland. This little apartment was in the perfect location to access great shops and restaurants in the Nob Hill area and NW 23rd. Parking was tricky but the parking pass was helpful. The apartment itself was small but the bed was comfortable and being so close to all the action, it was very quiet.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your stay Natalie! Hope to see you back soon!

ArtFulLife is a community or residents in an old Portland house. Parties are not a norm and therefore not allowed. Peaceful, quiet enjoyment is the norm - a great place to relax...
