The artFlat is a two room (entire apt), including large kitchenette & bath, designed in our daylight basement apartment. Nestled within a classic Portland foursquare, you will enjoy the rich gallery atmosphere of
The artFlat, decorated with original prints taken from around the world by your host, Holly. We have carefully appointed the unit to maximize your comfort and enjoyment. The artFlat is located in the epicenter of everything Portland, quietly sitting on a tree-lined avenue.

The space

Our intention with artFlat, Portland is to have you feel like you are entering the photographic eye of Holly Wilmeth, your host and acclaimed "picture taker." Once here, you will be surrounded by exquisite artifacts and beautifully framed art prints that are a culmination of Holly and Sky's world travel and Holly's published work with National Geographic, The New York Times, Time, GEO, and Travel & Leisure, to name just a few publications. Combining art and comfort is our goal, and it doesn't hurt that you couldn't have chosen a better location to experience Portland. We are located in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of why people flock here: The Eastside, while only being 2-3 miles from downtown and The Pearl.

Guest access

There are two rooms and a full bathroom that comprise The artFlat. The bigger of the two rooms is divided between a bedroom and a living room area with comfortable seating for four. The bedroom has a top-of-the-line queen mattress sitting upon a platform bed, framed by a deep red Persian rug, rich Indonesian night stands and designer lamps. The areas are seperated by sliding translucent screens suspended from the ceiling for both privacy and ambience.

The living area is adorned with a cozy love seat, soft decorative pillows and two very comfortable overstuffed chairs. This space is perfect for both conversation, sipping and viewing on the 50" Sharp HDTV Roku wall mounted television. This smart set has both basic cable and local channels as well as HBO and is equipped with Amazon Video, Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, Pandora, etc. (bring your log-ins with you).

The second room is perfect for that lively kitchen mingle. A combination Kitchen, dining and comfortable seating nook that includes a full size couch/sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the dishes, and utility that make the space feel like home (please note there is a microwave and kettle, no stove or oven). The couch and chaise lounge turns into a queen bed that is comfortable and will provide a good night sleep. If you are a party of four, please let us know if you want the couch to remain a couch or we can prepare the bed for you. (The couch has storage for bedding and opens without effort). The teak dining table/workspace is set for four and has two pull-out leaves with two additional chairs, in the closet, for local guests or new friends.

Interaction with guests

We offer self check-in and check-out using a coded smart lock. While we are around and would love to meet you, we also understand that privacy is paramount. Many of our guests simply choose to message only.

Don't have a negative thing to say! What a great place it is. For two people it was perfect. The neighborhood is great and there were so many places in walking distance. We were a quick uber drive away from downtown. It was a great way to experience Portland. And the photos on the wall that Holly has taken are incredible. Beautiful place

Wow what an amazing place, I can't stop thinking about it! Just a block away from great eats on Hawthorne, you really wouldn't need a car to enjoy Portland. Check in was super easy, communication was on point and I can't commend the hosts enough for being available at a moments notice. There were some issues on the first day getting in but they really offered any solutions possible to keep us happy. The space was fully stocked with everything you could want - kitchen with coffee and spices, latest local news to give you an idea of what to do during the week and we had such a fantastic sleep on the plush bed. Everything was super cleanly and we actually saw the cleaners come in right after we left so we can tell how well its maintained. It is a basement so you do hear steps above, but everything is totally separate and we had no issues with our upstairs neighbours. Will definitely be staying here again next time we're in Portland!

My friends and I were so comfy and happy at Holly and Sky's place. It provided not only the basics but all the comforts of home. We will be back!

Very nice, spacious two-room downstairs apt with a kitchen/dining/lounge area and a bedroom/living/tv room separated by two closing doors. Low ceilings if you're very tall but I'm around 6ft and they didnt bother me at all. Everything was as expected, well appointed, well stocked kitchen, nice comfortable bed, bathroom stocked with necessary amenities, etc. The location is quite good, it's in the middle of bars and restaurants (check out the Hazel Room for brunch all week), and it's a quiet street with no real foot traffic at night from Hawthorne. You can hear the upstairs neighbors' footsteps in the morning a bit but nothing too loud. All in all, it's definitely highly recommended after staying all over Portland over the last few years at various Airbnb's, you won't be disappointed here.

Super cool quirky spot in about as good a location as you can get in this city. Comfortable, clean, a little small, but overall very comfortable.
