This 1920's bungalow is the perfect way to live like a local in one of Los Angeles's hippest neighborhoods. We pride ourselves on creating a space that feels like home, having painted every wall, sanded, stained and revitalized the original floors, and restored numerous pieces of vintage furniture to it's former glory. We adorned the walls and nooks with that which inspires us - the sixties, world art, music, antiques, classic pop culture, family heirlooms, forgotten one-of-a-kind treasures, things we've found and things we've made from scratch. We maintained and honored the history of this 20’s film era bungalow where old film actors would actually stay while shooting for the budding film industry, and simultaneously gave it a modern, boho edge.
Each of the two bedrooms exudes it's own character and style, and on the practical end offers lots of storage space for your belongings. The front bedroom has it’s own walk-in closet and office nook area, and between the living room and bathroom there is another walk-in closet/changing room with a private vanity area for primping. Along with the spacious, handmade kitchen nook that seats six, the unit offers a private backyard patio area adorned with a colorful cacti garden where you can enjoy time outside. And whether it’s business or recreational time you seek, we have a TV with streaming Netflix and Hulu and free wi-fi to satisfy all your needs. Public transportation is just down the street at Sunset Blvd., which is the main street of Los Angeles. Each bedroom has a full-size bed. In addition, we have an aero bed, a twin sized guest mattress or a comfy couch for a fifth guest. There is one parking spot available for guests in the back lot.
Secluded at the back of the property behind three other private bungalows, this is a tranquil, cozy escape amidst the bustling city just blocks away. In our humble opinion as Angelenos residing here for over 7 years, it is a perfect combination of city life mixed with a little country. Though the property itself is filled with vegetation, trees and flowers, a couple blocks away is Sunset Blvd, boasting some of our favorite restaurants in LA. There’s the amazing Sage Vegan, The Park (with it’s deliciously famous $5 burger night), the classy and all organic Ostrich Farm and of course Echo Park’s hip, historic diner, The Brite Spot. For more low key choices, we often frequent Guisdaos, Two Boots Pizza and Tacos Arizas (best taco truck in LA). For non-culinary activities, the newly revamped Echo Park Lake is blocks away and a lovely way to spend an afternoon, and at night you can walk to The Echo to hear the best of LA’s indie bands or dance your socks off at Funky Soul Night.
We love living here and would love to make your time in Los Angeles memorable and comfortable. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.

We live by the motto “love and create,” and be it making music, building, painting, refurbishing furniture, or cooking, we make sure we are true to that saying every day.
Dan is a composer for film and television and Arielle is a singer and songwriter. We are adventure junkies, travelers, bohemians, foodies, winos, animal lovers, film buffs, total romantics and overall, lovers of life lost in the sixties.
We live next door to the rental, and one of us is almost always available to answer questions and give a rave recommendation of where to eat. We love living in Echo Park and look forward to making your experience here as fabulous as possible.
