About this listing
We have comfortable single room in Lincoln Heights (just east of Downtown and Chinatown) for nightly/weekly/monthly rental.
The room is newly furnished with an extremely comfortable twin bed, heaps of closet space for suitcases and hanging clothes, draws and a reading lamp. The room is small but has a great deal of space for all of your things. You will have access all facilities in the rest of the house including full kitchen, bathroom, lounge room, outdoor ‘tiki' bar (construction currently underway), barbeque, and wireless internet.
Lincoln Heights is a cool neighborhood with a relaxed atmosphere near downtown LA, there are fantastic restaurants/food stands all around. We live a short walk from a big supermarket and many other conveniences: libraries, bars, shops, galleries, pharmacy, restaurants, liquor stores, Laundromat, dollar stores, food, gas station etc.
We live in walking/cycling/metro distance to Chinatown, The Brewery Art Colony, Downtown, Dodger Stadium, Elysian park, Union Station (where you can get public transport to just about anywhere in LA), San Antonio Winery, and Little Tokyo.
If you have a car, Downtown, Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silverlake, and Echo Park are just a short drive away. If not, there are buses that run right down Broadway (at the end of our street) and some that run 24hrs. We are live in a very convenient location if you want to travel around LA on public transport.
Please note if you have a car we have STREET PARKING ONLY available - but there is plenty of it.
We are an artist couple originally from Australia, who moved to LA a few months ago after traveling around the US for 12 months. Tom is a painter and Bonnie is a video installation artist. We both work day jobs also to support our art.
We have lived in many different cities all over the world and love to travel, from our experiences we have a great understanding of the things you want/need when you are traveling and we are happy to accommodate you.
We are both huge fans of LA! We love this city and are constantly fascinated by it.
If you are into art or film we are happy to give you tips on what to check out while you are in LA.
We are happy to have short or longer-term visitors so please contact us if you have any queries about the duration of your stay.
Although we have check-in and check-out times, you are welcome to hang around the house or leave you bags in the lounge, we just want enough time to make up the room for the next guests.
We also have another double room for a couple or a single available so please check out our other listing. We also have room on a fold out couch in the lounge if you are a group of friends (please send us a message).
Bonnie and Tom.
Smoking allowed outside or on balcony bar.
My name is Tom and I have lived in Los Angeles for three years. I am a visual artist who has done residencies and projects throughout the States before settling in LA.
I am originally from Melbourne, Australia but I have traveled extensively both for fun and also doing artist residences. I have lived in London, Stockholm, Berlin, New York and now consider Los Angeles home. I am passionate about LA and in particular my adopted neighborhood, Lincoln Heights.
Having a great deal of Airbnb experience both as a guest and as a host I very much look forward to making your stay as comfortable as possible!
Thanks very much,
