The Space

Fully furnished studio in the heart of Hollywood (even the Hollywood sign is visible from just outside my door!) Walking distance to Paramount Studios. Heaps of bars, lounges, cafes, and restaurants are nearby, including a personal favorite of mine, La Descarga, a Cuban speakeasy, which is a one-minute walk from my place, and truly a hidden gem. For those who like hiking, both Runyon Canyon and Griffith Park are a short five-minute drive. Larchmont Village and Los Feliz are two cute, quaint little neighborhoods on either side of me that have great cafes and restaurants, and of course, Hollywood Boulevard is just a few blocks away as well, with the Chinese Theatre, Walk of Fame, and all its famous pubs and clubs galore. Many supermarkets are a short walk or drive away, including Trader Joe's, Ralph's, Smart n Final, and Vons. The beach is only about 15 miles away. My location is very central to everything in Los Angeles (downtown to the east, Beverly Hills to the west, the San Fernando Valley to the north, and Hancock Park to the south). I am literally right off the 101 freeway, and a couple miles from the 10 freeway. Public transportation is also close by, if you prefer not to drive. I am just two blocks south of the Hollywood/Western station and two blocks west of the Santa Monica/Vermont station, which are both part of the Metro red line subway. There are many bus stops right outside also, which run pretty frequently.

I am looking to sublet my place while I'm in Brazil for the World Cup this summer. I will be backpacking through Central and South America for about 3 months, so someone looking for a more long-term place is ideal. This price for a studio in Hollywood (with all utilities included) just can't be beat! I (email hidden) who has done a whole lot of traveling, and I love meeting and hosting people from all walks of life. I also understand the tight budget travelers have, and this would be a great bargain for those on a tight budget, as you can't find that price anywhere!

  • I have known Melissa for the past four years. We met on set working for a TV show. She is an amazing person, mature, confident, talented and an old soul for one being so young. I admire her gustiness, openess, kindness and acceptance of all people and cultures. She has a way of putting you at ease with her easygoing fun demenor and is a genuine friend, younger sister. I love her spirit of adventure. and adventurer spirit. She is truly a citizen of the world. Ive been to her place many times, it is the coziest, homely pad in Hollywood. Very clean, newly renovated, good ventilation and she has furnished it just like her personality with a cosmopolitan touch. It has all the amenties and is close to all major freeways, and public transpo. An awesome place to stay in the heart of Hollywood. As for Melissa she will instantly charm you with her dusky,ethnic good looks and genuinely kind, warm personality. I highly recommend her place, do check it out.

  • Melissa is such a sweetheart. She is kindness incarnate. She is also a very open person, as she is still young and ready to take in new thoughts, people, and sights like a sponge. This is a refreshing energy to have around.

  • Melissa R is a sweet, responsible, fun and adventurous girl. She is super considerate and kind to everybody and a very special friend to me. She takes her acting career very seriously but is equally serious about traveling,  trying new things and meeting new people. I couldn't think (email hidden) or trip companion. We always have so much fun hanging out, trying to ski, or exploring the city night life. She is the best, I highly recommend and I can completely vouch for her any time.

I've been avidly pursuing my acting career, my childhood dream, which I'd put on the back burner while I (email hidden) getting my degree. When it comes to my life passions and priorities, traveling is also at the top of my list. I LOVE to travel and have already been to 57 countries on 6 continents! My life goal is to set foot on the soil of every country on this beautiful planet... ambitious, I know, but that's my middle name! ;-) Antarctica will be my 7th and final continent to conquer, so for my 30th birthday (in a couple of years!) you can be sure that I will treat myself to a nice little expedition down south! Every place I visit, every encounter I have, every memory I make helps build up my treasure chest of unique life experiences that I can pull from when I'm acting. It's my field research, in a sense. :-) By broadening my perspectives, challenging my old beliefs, and opening my mind to fresh new ways of being, I hope to transform myself into a global ambassador, and more importantly, a conscious citizen of the world. One of my favorite quotes to live by: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain
