About This Listing
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)
The place was perfect! Very much as described. Excellent location right in Koreatown. Michael was very helpful. Since I booked the place for my mother, I was unable to Be there to help her find the place. However Michael was more than accommodating. He offered to pick my mother up and take her directly to the apartment. He also excepted a parcel from overseas since my mother did not have a mailing address yet.
This stay at Michael's place? Beyond words. Spent close to 2 months in this very perfect spot. The Studio looks exactly like in the pictures, it is very comfortable and quiet with lots of light and space. I highly recommend this place as it is also very well situated. I hope to visit again! Thank you Michael
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.
