Absolutely love this home. Great location and walking distance to so many fun spots. The hot tub was used every night for winding down and relaxing. Super comfy beds. Very quirky decor. We were sad to leave.
House was exactly as pictured. Clean and cozy. Stayed with two friends and we enjoyed the outdoor area. Convenient to all things fun in Echo Park. Would definitely stay again!
Donna's house is awesome! Great location in Echo Park, walking distance to bars, restaurants, grocery stores. And a quick Uber to downtown.
The house is well taken care of, with plenty of beds for a larger group of people, which worked out great for my friends and I. Also the long driveway helped us park 3 cars off the street.
The place is also great for entertaining, particularly the backyard. You can tell Donna is working to make it perfect, but even right now with a barbecue, fire pit, outdoor dining table, hot tub, and various places to sit and relax, it's a lot of fun to hang out outside. Probably the coolest thing is that she provided us a projector and a portable projector screen to watch movies outside - so we hooked it up in the backyard so we could watch a movie from the hot tub! Definitely worth giving that a go during a stay!
This is a great place with fun and unique decor. Our group had a great time and 10 of us had plenty of space!
Donna's home is very eclectic and is as described. Donna communicates quickly and was easy to work with. One small hiccup was gaining access to the house. I would suggest communicating with Donna the day before to find out how to get the keys.
Also note there is an additional tax that is not calculated when you originally book. It is added to your bill later.
Had a blast at donnas pad over the weekend. My friends and family BBQed, utilized the hot tubs, had plenty of beds to choose from, and walked to the Dodger games. Only one mile from the house and only three blocks from "The Short Stop" the original Dodger bar. If you're a baseball fan and want to check out the best stadium for watching the game, book this house.
We had an excellent time at Donna's place. It was roomy, comfortable and quirky- perfect for our group. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and backyard was perfect for grilling.
About the Host, Donna
Hi, I'm Donna and I have a beautiful 1904 craftsman in the heart of Echo Park. This place is super cute and walking distance to the EchoPlex, Dodgers Stadium, tons of bars, restaurants, shops, and Echo Park itself! 10 minute drive to DTLA. I travel frequently for work, so my home can be yours for long and short term stays, as well as film and photo projects (at the rate of $100 per hour).
I hope to visit every city in the world. I love taking road trips in my Winnebago, thrifting, building furniture from reclaimed wood, and interior design.
