I have a wonderfully charming room for rent in my Spanish Cottage in the Highland Park / Mount Washington area. It's the perfect place to relax for travelers visiting Los Angeles for either business or pleasure.
Please know, that you have full access to the kitchen, but you also have a mini fridge in your private room. And when you peruse the photos: you'll see the bathroom is directly next to your bedroom. Also the outdoor area, which feels like a private vacation in Mexico, is just outside of your own entrance at the rear of the house, and it is there for you to completely enjoy.
This is an up and coming, and safe, neighborhood that is a very short drive to the hip and fun on York Blvd; the 110 freeway is extremely close and will get you to all sorts of Los Angeles in no time. And being on the east side of town, Silver Lake and Echo Park are very close by. Trust me, you'll love it.
You also have the option of grabbing a train at the Metro Gold station, which is about a ten minute walk. The train takes you to either downtown LA, or Pasadena, so you have the option of a serendipitous adventure -- if you so desire.
Stay in this charming room and experience the life of a local in Los Angeles!
