This is a newly renovated craftsman duplex, nestled amongst a variety of palms and giant birds of paradise, downhill from a forest of agave. It is a unique dwelling with many charms. One bedroom is revealed behind extra large, wooden, pocket doors. Additionally, the living room can be used as a sleeping quarters with the couch used as a comfortable, double sized, futon bed. Sun filled windows frame generous views of Echo Park and Downtown. Fine details include arched hallway, Moroccan tiles, antique hardware, french doors opening out to an exclusive view and private outdoor area. Tall ceilings contribute to the overall sense of spaciousness. The apartment is located between two lots so there is a nice separation from the streets below. Yet, it is right around the corner and walking distance from all of the action that Echo Park has to offer.

** Due to LA City taxes, all guests staying less than 30 days must pay a 14% transient occupancy tax (fancy name for a hotel room tax) to the city upon or before check in. This is the same tax you pay in LA hotels and I have to forward it to LA City Hall each month. Airbnb has no facility to collect the tax at this time, so I will accept a cash payment upon check in or pay pal if you want to use a credit card. Feel free to call airbnb support to confirm this **

No large gatherings with out prior permission. Only guests who I have agreed to host may stay here. Please be sure to lock gates behind you.
Phoebe's place was fantastic! I really couldn't have asked for a more peaceful and spacious place on my most recent visit. It was the prefect place I needed to relax from a hectic work week. Phoebe was very helpful in showing me around the property and letting me about all the areas to eat in the neighborhood. I would love to go back again soon!
We really enjoyed our stay at Phoebe's place! This is a very clean and lovely home and property. Phoebe made sure everything went smooth with our arrival and was always immediately responsive. Enjoyed the location right around the corner from some food and shops. Hope to return soon.
I have stayed in a couple of Phoebe's properties, and the second I open the door to her places I always wish I was staying longer!
Everything about the Bigger Little Villa is fantastic. The location couldn't be more ideal; half a block up from Echo Park Ave and the lovely Cookbook (for carefully curated groceries and delicious prepared food), and very easy walking distance from many restaurants and bars.
The little veranda has great views and morning sunlight and is a perfect spot for coffee or breakfast (Pheobe has thoughtfully provided a french press coffee pot - just one teeny feature of the well appointed kitchen), the bed is SO comfy and the sheets are dreamy (I arrived jetlagged from a trip to Asia and the crazily comfortable bed was much appreciated), and street parking is plentiful, safe and easy.
The apartment is decorated in such a way that it is very personal and special and beautiful, but also airy and CLEAN and spacious enough that it feels like you as a guest belong there and not like you are staying in someones apartment.
Phoebe is just great; she is helpful, interesting, prompt, reliable, accommodating and kind, and her creativity and great taste are evident in every corner of the apartment!
I highly recommend the Bigger Little Villa and I can't wait to go back!
Phoebe has a great place and was a great host! It is very well decorated, comfortable and has great views. I would definitely book this place again.
These were great accommodations! It was the first visit to CA for my great-niece, so the view and the ambiance of the house itself provided a wonderful "first (email hidden) is about. Comfortably close to the family we were there to visit; fresh, friendly neighborhood. Clean, quiet, upgraded, but in keeping with the early-century style of the house, beautiful original tile work throughout. Not being pie-in-the-sky, but I honestly have no negatives. Phoebe was immediately responsive to any questions, of which there were few. The house has a very calming effect and feels (is) very secure. Especially liked the keyless lock system. Had a hard time leaving ... would stay there again in a heartbeat!
This is always my first choice in places to stay when working in LA. i love this apartment and Phoebe is wonderful!
The Bigger Little Villa Apartment is a wonderful apartment. It's walking distance to many great restaurants, bars, coffee shops, vintage and designer (hand crafts) shops, an awesome organic food store and the neighborhood is just great for walks in general. It's really a perfect and very quiet and cosy place which I highly recommend. Phoebe is a very kind and helpful person and easy to work with.
