The Space

This is an airy and spacious one-bedroom furnished apartment, available for short or long-term stays, on a tranquil street in the Echo Park enclave of Elysian Heights. Minutes to the shops and restaurants of Silver Lake and 10-15 minutes to downtown and Hollywood attractions.

Enter your cheery yellow door into the open living/dining area, with all modern amenities: skylights, wood laminate floors, cold A/C, full bathroom, Wi-fi, flat screen TV with free Netflix and Hulu streaming. Comfortable queen size bed in bedroom, huge West Elm sectional couch. The space is equipped with a small and fully stocked kitchen (stove, microwave, toaster, refrigerator and small sink) AND your own washer and dryer.

A queen size air mattress also available by request, as well as a pack n'play or crib & twin size Ikea chair bed. This is a guest house in an owner-occupied triplex and we (the owners) are easy to reach if you have any questions about the place (how the heck does the remote work again?) or the neighborhood (where's the best place to get fish tacos/ vegan ice cream/ a glass of wine?) **We are also happy to provide free guest passes to the world famous and invite-only Magic Castle in Hollywood to our guests.**

It's is a wonderful place to land for new transplants to LA, those here on temporary work assignments, or tourists, especially families.

A car is highly recommended, though there is a bus stop, cafes and shops a 10-15 minute walk away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Melissa was a fantastic host and her apartment was really great. It had everything we needed (and more), was quiet, clean, had air conditioning, and loads of space. It really felt like a home away from home. It is situated in a nice neighbourhood, and we found it very close and easy to get to the surrounding freeways. We found the apartment was ideally situated to explore the cities many attractions. I would definitely stay again and would highly recommend staying.

  • Melissa is a lovely host. She was very accommodating from the get-go and very easy to get a hold of. Her place is so spacious, comfortable, and clean --we felt like we were home. There's wifi access and Netflix, which was so great to have when we were waiting for our laundry to finish. It should be mentioned that the home is in close proximity to the owners house, so when you have the windows open, you can hear and see everything that they're doing in their backyard. It could be somewhat awkward, but we didn't mind. Also, it seems like one of their neighbors has a rooster --what an interesting way to wake up! Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Melissa's and can't wait to return.

  • Melissa and Ryan were great hosts and their cozy place was as described, convenient, and quiet. We needed black-out curtains for our baby's nap and they were so sweet to bring one over. We'd definitely stay with them again!

  • Melissa and her family are wonderful hosts. The space I lived is very nice and they are quick to respond if anything is needed. I am enjoying the place and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice quiet space with hosts that are good people who are very responsive.

  • We were very pleased with the accommodations at Melissa's cozy apartment in Los Angeles. We have two girls and they slept perfectly fine in the living room. My husband and I slept in the bedroom, on a very comfy mattress. The location was ideal to get to many attractions. The free parking was a big savings. When we had questions or requests Melissa was always available. She's a wonderful host. We highly recommend her place.

  • I'd recommend Melissa's place without reservation. Squeaky clean, well-appointed, quiet and really lovely neighborhood, accessible and very friendly hosts - what more could one ask? Well, one could ask for 1 car parking, a lovely 1-BR with full bath and kitchenette, spacious living room, wifi, Netflix/Apple TV, and a chilled bottle of sparkling lemonade to greet you after your hot drive in. And you wouldn't be disappointed. Great books in the shelves, too! The 3 of us (my husband, 7 year old daughter, and I) stayed for a few days and wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you, Melissa and family!

  • We had a great time staying with Melissa.
    Location could not be better and amenities are state of the art.
    We are definitely planning on staying there again!

  • The accommodations are spacious and clean. We were a family of four and felt right at home. Melissa and her family were friendly and helpful. We highly recommend using the Magic Castle invitation. This a great benefit of staying with Melissa as it is an exclusive club. This was one of the highlights of our trip. We hope to be back in the Los Angles area again and would love to stay there again. She is centrally located but in a quiet neighborhood. We would recommend this listing to anyone, and already have suggested it to friends.
