About this listing

Cute, cozy bachelor in excellent Los Feliz/Silver Lake location. Close to Trader Joe's, Sunset Junction shops and boutiques and great pizza, movie theaters, gelato, bars and juice stands - everything you can think of is walking distance. One of the rare areas of LA that you can get around without a car. Take fast public transportation to Universal Studios, Hollywood, Downtown LA museums, Dodger Stadium, Griffith Observatory and more. A fun, lively neighborhood - one of the best LA has to offer.

The space

Cute and cool bachelor apartment in centrally located Los Feliz/Franklin Hills/Silver Lake area.

This is a great unit for people who like to walk and explore. There are lots of great murals in the neighborhood (Shepard Fairey just finished a great one that's only 5 blocks away) as well as farmer's markets (one a 10 minute walk away on Saturday morning and the Atwater and Los Feliz markets which are a 25 min walk in either direction). There are great tapas bars, sport bars, old Hollywood hangout bars, gay bars and lots of juice bars for the unalcoholically inclined.

Plus lots of great pizza.

We're near Griffith Park so it's not that uncommon to see skunks or racoons or possums or coyotes - not that one sees them everyday, but it occasionally happens. It's a rustic yet modern part of town. Somehow it works.

The unit is small - a self contained one room bachelor with a kitchenette, bathroom and painted concrete floors. It's cool and always cool - it's almost always an even temperature due to being semi underground with a granite/concrete slate wall.

It's up a flight of about 15 steps - good to know just in case that is a problem for you. We really want your stay to be a great one, so if you have mobility problems or need that cigarette or gotta have your pets/animals with you, this probably won't be a good fit. Other than that, you should like it here. You'll hear some overhead footfall noises, but not a lot of traffic as we are set back a bit from the street.

It's got an industrial feel with high a ceiling (11ft) and exposed beam and high contrast color scheme. If you're into the modern look, you'll like it here.

Note: The bed is a trundle bed - it's very comfortable. There is also a sofabed/loveseat (thank you IKEA) that doubles as a little sitting spot and, well, a bed.

Second Note: This is a really small place. There is no door to the bathroom, only a curtain.

Best for a single person - 1 person max - 3 night minimum - PLEASE NOTE - NO PARTIES - NO GUESTS - NO SMOKING.

•1 min walk to Hyperion Lyric Cafe, 2 min walk to YAS (yoga and spinning), 2 min walk to Casita del Campo, 12 minute walk to Sunset Junction shops and eateries, 17 min walk from Metro Red Line/Children's Hospital/Kaiser Hospital, 11 min walk to Trader Joe's and Gelson's, bike paths all over the place
•Walking distance to some of the best pizza (Tomato Pie), burgers (The Fix) and gelato (Pazzo Gelato) in the city
•Nearby bars, cafes, eclectic boutiques and restaurants - an 11 min walk to Intelligensia coffee shop, Casbah Cafe, Forage restaurant, Secret Headquarters comic book store, Cafe Stella bistro, Matruska dress shop - etc.
•Charming modern style home with concrete floors, cool loft-like 11ft ceiling and exposed beams
•Ample Street parking - free and non-metered (Friday mornings have street cleaning from 10am - 12noon-please be aware of this!)
• Kitchenette has stovetop, little fridge, toaster oven - glasses, dishes, utensils
•Halfway between Hollywood and Downtown LA, 3 minutes from freeways, 1 minute walk to bus stop
•Gorgeous hilly hikes and walking paths nearby
•Includes utilities, wireless internet
•No smoking, no drugs, no pets (we really mean it about the no smoking)

This area of town is a lot like Brooklyn - lots of cool places, mom and pop shops and almost everything you need walking distance. It's a very safe neighborhood in a lively and fun area of town. We are close to Griffith Park, Hollywood, Downtown LA, Dodger Stadium, Disney Hall and lots of other attractions. It's also a great central place to go to other places around the city.

No smoking of any kind on the property, no drugs, no pets - (we really mean it about the no smoking)

Kitchen amenities:

Two burner stovetop
Toaster oven
Pots and pans, dishes, bowls and utensils - as well as cooking spices
Small Refrigerator

and if you're not into cooking...

Los Feliz/Silver Lake is a great neighborhood - there are wonderful movie theaters, restaurants and boutiques all walking distance. FOOD: Thai, Italian, Brazilian, Vietnamese, Armenian, Chinese, Japanese - all walking distance and most open late or 24 hours. Not to mention great pizza, burgers and bars!

Great public transportation in this area; you wouldn't need a car if you worked in Hollywood or Downtown LA. Close to Griffith Park, Hollywood, Disney Hall, Dodger Stadium and centrally located within Los Angeles.

This is a lively neighborhood so don't expect total peace and quiet but the neighbors are respectful. There is a preschool across the street so during the day you may hear the sound of children playing occasionally.

Getting here from the LAX Airport:

There is a bus called the flyway that can take you to Union Station for 7 dollarsUS (don't worry - you won't need money - when you get to Union Station you can pay by credit card) then you can take the Metro Red Line for $1.50 each or take a taxi for about $15 (a taxi from the airport would cost about $55-66US).

You would go back to the airport the same way - though there is a bus that can take you to the Red Line.

Since parking downtown can range from $5-$25 and walking from a parking structure takes a lot of time, public transportation is better and sometimes faster to Downtown LA and Hollywood, in my opinion.

There is also the DASH - the downtown area bus that costs 50 cents and goes all around downtown LA - from Chinatown to USC. There's lots to do there. And it's not too far from the house.

This is a great hilly, hip part of town - truly one of the best LA has to offer. You'll be able to explore everyday.

Other things to note

The unit is up a 15 step flight of stairs. If climbing stairs is difficult for you this would not be a good place to rent.

The listing was cozy, clean, and had all the amenities I needed for an extended stay for work. The neighborhood is quiet at night, felt very safe, and is close to a lot of markets, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Jansen and Lisa were excellent hosts, great with communication and very helpful at check in. I would definitely stay again!

Our stay was wonderful--not only did Jansen accommodate us last minute after our other plans fell through, we felt so welcomed and well cared for. We would absolutely come stay again!!

This is a solid spot for a quick stay in LA. It's located on a winding avenue between neighborhoods so it's convenient for traveling around but a little more seedy than I was expecting. The host was very thorough with the tour of the property on my arrival and there's strong wifi in the apartment. It's a little musty-smelling but overall this is a good spot.
