Interaction with Guests
We love to say hi and meet our guests when we're around, but we also give you your privacy. We're here if you have questions.
We love Echo Park because it's electic, lively, and very walkable. Even though we're in the middle of LA, we often go an entire weekend without driving. There are so many wonderful places to see in Echo Park and Silverlake. Echo Park lake, about a 15-minute walk from the house, is lovely with shady grassy areas and peddle boats for rent on the lake. Silver Lake reservoir, about a 20-minute walk, is a great place to walk around or relax at the meadow.
There are public buses within easy walking distance. The closest metro stop is about 2 miles away.
No smoking inside the house. No pets inside the house. We do have a very friendly dog who is sometimes in the shared backyard.
The property and backyard are a shared space between our main house and the guest house. It's fine to have music playing on the outdoor speakers until 9pm, but please limit outdoor noise after that time.
The guest house was lovely and Beth's open communication was phenomenal. Everything was exactly as pictured and there was even some coffee in the fridge, which I was particularly grateful for! The recommendations Beth provided for coffee and dinner were also spot on. It made me feel like part of the community, if only for a few days. My husband and I had a great time and I only wish that I could've explored more!
Outstanding! I didn't want to leave, and I don't think I'll stay in a place as unique and as cool as this for a long time.
Loved staying at Beckie's place. It was absolutely beautiful and warm and welcoming! Beckie was very helpful and communicative. I would absolutely stay there again.
A beautiful home! Very clean. Easy to access. Very modern. Lots of instructions
Amazing house, amazing host, great location!! Really good LA experience!! It's the 3rd time I stay there!!
This was my second time staying at the guesthouse and once again it was a wonderful stay. The apartment is spacious, bright and airy. The location and the neighborhood are awesome plus having a garage parking spot very convenient. Contact and check in/out were smooth and easy.
Beth's place was absolutely georgeous. Everything was in perfect condition and we really appreciated the small touches like having shampoo and conditioner, a few Pepsi's in the fridge, etc. The water feature was awesome! Having access to a garage was also a huge bonus. Overall, a phenomenal stay!
