The Space

We have a beautiful sun filled double room in Lincoln Heights (just east of Downtown and Chinatown) for nightly/weekly/monthly rental.
The room comes with a lovely attached office/sun room/ studio/lounge (this may be shared with one other guest).
All of the furniture/bedding in the room is brand new including a comfortable full sized futon bed. The room is good for 1 or 2 people.
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.

We also have a single room available at a cheaper rate 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).
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.

Thank you!

Bonnie and Tom.

  • Moved to LA to chase my dreams as a new upcoming actor on the rise... Things can be a lot to handle when first coming to LA just have to remember stick with it things will come together.. And you will so quickly fall in love with LA.. Tom is a freaking amazing host great place to stay in downtown, you have your own private cozy space and keep to yourself if want.. You have you own space for food and can cook all you want... Just be respectful and clean after yourself.. But yeah if you need a nice chill place to stay toms place is it not too mention his cool Australian accent!!!!!!

  • This place surpassed my expectations, the epitome of an awesome AirBnB experience. Tom is a super chill guy and extremely helpful whenever I had any questions at all. The room was very organized and clean (just like the photos), sheets were all washed and organized on the bed when I arrived, and the location was perfect/central for me. On the west you have Hollywood/Santa Monica/etc., on the east Alhambra/Arcadia/etc. Very quiet at night and wifi is blazing fast. Cheers Tom, thanks for an awesome stay!

  • Tom's place is just the place to be. Best price ever $$. Coolest area: Lincoln Heights! ROCK AND ROLL apartment. Everything was clean and lovely and the best host you can have is Tom. We stayed for one month. The room is big and always private. I totally recommend this place and for sure we will be back one day. Thank you Tom! 5 STARS*****

  • We had a great time. Really relaxing and easy access to downtown. Tom was very friendly and helpful. We would be happy to stay there again.

  • Staying at Tom's in LA was a great experience. It was my first taste of LA, and have no complaints about it. The Tiki bar on the back deck is an awesome spot to spend the nights talking and drinking away. He always makes sure you feel at home, and always try to help out. I would highly recommend staying here if you are in between spots and looking for some good company.

  • Après 13h de voyages, mon arrivée chez Tom et Bonnie a été catastrophique : La maison ne ressemblait en rien aux descriptions sur les photos : Très sale, dérangée au possible, cela s'apparentait plus à un taudis qu'a une maison; L'endroit ne correspondant en rien aux photos sur le site, j'ai donc du quitter les lieux immédiatement et lancer une procédure airbnb pour annuler la chambre.

  • Our stay at tom's place was very nice. It's an apartment in the upper floor of a tiny purple house. We slept on a futon in a separate room. We were able to use everything. Tom is really kind and will help you with everything. You can park in front of the house. There is a lot of space. We rented a car so we could explore the city on our own. We had no experience with public transportation. The house has good connections to the Highway. The area is safe. Try mayas burrito place very close to the house. La is great.

  • Staying at Tom and Bonnie's is a spiritual retreat. If Tom had bosoms, he'd have held me to them. Many's the night we spent on the Tiki Bar looking out over the favelas, talking social injustice, Barbra Streisand, Polish portraiture, tents and shoes. If you squint you can see the future from there. It's bright.

    Book now to avoid disappointment.
