First and foremost, Martineke is super awesome! She came and greeted me upon arrival and really set the location up exactly how it looks in the pictures. The neighborhood is really quant and convenient. The freeway is very close by, but if you don't mind the sounds of cars going by, you should be good to go. It's VERY cool in her apartment. She had A/C but I rarely used it. She has tons of windows and so the nice cool breeze throughout the day was very welcoming. There's a fantastic restaurant within 0.6 miles away which me and my friend visited on MANY occasions and they delivered to my location. There is a wellness bar located at the bottom of the apartment, however, there's a reserved parking spot for your vehicle. I didn't have any issues with being nervous leaving my vehicle there or overnight. She also invited me and my friend to dinner with her and her family. This was an amazing experience. I really wish I had selected to stay longer at her location because I didn't want to leave.
Great sunny, space, just as pictured. Plenty of room for our group of five, it was a perfect base while visiting LA for a week. Also included some nice amenities: wi-fi, espresso machine, stocked spice cabinent, tv, towels and toiletries, etc.
Not much in the neighborhood within walking distance, but only a 5-10 minute drive from Echo Park/Silverlake areas.
Overall great experience!
Everything was simple and uncomplicated. We really enjoyed our stay. The appartment was great, clean and had a nice location. Martineke and Larry were great hosts.
If we had the chance, we would come back again.
Great place location everything was more then what I expected great experience.

Huge, clean and comfortable apartment. Good home base and easy to get everywhere I needed to be. Helpful and accommodating hosts, would stay here again!
This is a genuinely cool apartment and we had a lot of fun staying. The set up is perfect for a couple or a small group using the additional sofa beds. It's really nicely furnished and we felt very comfortable.
The apartment is close to a freeway which may be an issue if you are a light sleeper. However, this didn't bother us at all and the surroundings are actually very green. There's a uniquely secluded feeling about this apartment even though you are right in the middle of the LA. We loved the fact that we could have a beer on the deck when we came back from our night out without feeling like we were disturbing any neighbours.
You'll need a car if you're staying this property since it's centrally located but at the same time not really within short walking distance of anywhere. The is typical of LA but something to keep in mind if, like us, you are used to compact European cities with good public transport infrastructure. We had a car and found the location to be ideal.
We all left saying how much me would love to live here if we were in LA... Comfortably 5 stars! Highly recommended.
