Huge apartment in a 1920's building located at Mid-Wilshire, and the heart of historic Los Angeles Koreatown. Walking distance to all of the necessities, and a 20 minute drive from everywhere else.
This is the most centrally located of LA’s neighborhoods. Just a 20 minute drive to the canyon, beach, and hills. Hollywood, Echo Park, and Silver Lake are less than two miles north, and downtown is two miles southeast.
The large windows and view make this place. The view faces west for unreal sunsets and the Hollywood sign. 5th & Top Floor, so no creaks from above. This is a vintage building located in a historic neighborhood with an antique elevator and original hardwoods throughout. The second bed (if you need it), is a high quality queen size air mattress with a built in inflator.
Full kitchen with microwave. Living room has a comfortable day couch, and huge, 7-foot long farm-style dining room table that was hand built with 100 year old reclaimed barn wood. You will also have access to high speed WIFI with 16 down & 5 up.
Parking is free on the street, and there's parking decks nearby that have nightly rates between $5-8.
Everything in the apartment. Laundry is coin operated, and just a short elevator ride downstairs.
Interaction with Guests
I am usually around to hand over the keys and show you into the apartment. If I'm out of town, I'll leave the keys in a hiding place for you. When it's time to check out, you simply lock up, and slide the keys under the door.
If you plan on using your feet to get around, this is the perfect location. You are walking distance to the Wilshire/Vermont red line metro station (3 blocks), and countless bars/ restaurants within a 2-block radius. There are Korean supermarkets with the essentials (beer, milk, eggs), but also multiple aisles devoted to kimchee and other fermented oddities. If you require a more traditional marketplace, those are walking distance as well.
Please not partying, and NO SMOKING!! (tobacco)
This location was perfect for what we needed to do. The home was clean, bright and with the necessary essentials.
Location is close to the subway which makes it a plus.
Michael was a fantastic host. Both accommodating and relaxed, he made the stay fantastic. The apartment itself is well furnished and presented and very reasonably priced. Great kitchen, comfortable bed. When I'm next in LA I'm definitely going to stay again.
Michael was a great host! The place was as advertised but the parking was a little hard to find at times.
Michael is a friendly and considerate host. He was there on my arrival to greet me and hand me the keys, and checked in with me various times during my stay to see if everything was allright. Questions or minor problems were swiftly dealt with.
The apartment is just as shown on the pictures. Lovely quiet atmosphere, well equiped and with a great view of L.A. Supermarket, little restaurants (cheap and good quality food), metro and bus stops are all within walking distance. Would definitely come again & recommend to others.
Michael's place was a fantastic unit. After taking a last minute 4am emergency reservation from me, he checked in several times during the week. The unit was clean and exactly as presented on the listing. I would recommend without reservation.
