We stayed at this apartment for 7 weeks. Larry and Martineke are great hosts and responded on some small issues super fast. Location is perfect. To any part of LA 15-45 min drive. Parks are all around. Silver Lake restaurants is 15-20 min by walk, Bicycle trek and park with public gym where you can jog and workout is 3 min run. Rick's burger is 10 min walk and burgers there were delicious. Best tacos in neighborhood in Salazaars just across LA river from Rick's burger. My wife enjoyed INUP pilates downstairs and all essentials you can buy at Vons market. If you want something bigger - Superking 5 min drive, Traders Joe - 10 min drive. Americana in Glendale - 20 min drive. House is full of good energy and wood table was perfect for my overnight work. It's way bigger than on pictures, AC in every room, new plastic windows are keeping silence that our baby could sleep at day and night for any problem. It was some minor problems during our stay but Martineke and Larry were super responsible and solved couple of that issues in a second.

Very convenient, spacious, well equipped apartment, above some quiet businesses near the border of Elysian Park and Silver Lake. Realize that you are near two major freeways, and sitting on the outside deck will not always be a quiet experience. However the new, double glazed windows keep the well air-conditioned apartment very sound proof. Also be aware that this second floor apartment is accessed by a fairly steep flight of stairs, which could be a problem for someone with mobility issues. Hosts are extremely accommodating. If you do reserve this apartment, as we recommend, be sure to park "facing traffic" in the reserved spot. Otherwise you will incur a $63 ticket from LAPD.

Martinete was so warm and clearly had a desire to make us feel welcomed! I told her we were in town to go to the beach, and she offered beach towels and boogie boards. The house is fantastic. I couldn't have asked for anything better.

Response from Martineke:
So glad your first Airbnb experience was a great one, Kelsey! It's an amazing platform to share and maintain our hidden treasure. Besides you came a long way for some Californian sun 'n sea. Hope this will be a family memory to cherish. Wishing you all well!

The place was beautiful. Very spacious, clean and even included a parking space, which came in handy in busy LA. I also enjoyed the privacy. Place was exactly as described. Would stay again.

After staying at the space for a month, I have nothing but praise for the apartment and Martineke. The pad is well decorated, has great appliances and a warm atmosphere. Amenities such as central a/c, speedy wifi and a flat-screen TV make it a fun place to relax when inside. If you prefer the outdoors, the apartment is located in close proximity to Echo Park, Silver Lake and Atwater Village. Martineke and her husband Larry were extremely gracious hosts throughout my month long visit. If you want to know anything about Los Angeles, such as the history, places to visit or where the locals eat, they're the people to ask. I highly recommend Martineke and Larry's apartment whether you're looking for a quick SoCal get away or an extended stay in Los Angeles.
