About This Listing
This is a comfy private room in a Spanish style 2 bedroom apartment, conveniently located between Downtown LA and Hollywood. The balcony overlooks Sunset Blvd with views of the Hollywood Sign and Griffith Observatory.
Hi! I'm Shana and I look forward to meeting you!
I am renting out 1 bedroom in a two bedroom apartment. For this rental you will be sharing the apartment with me, and will be residing in a cozy bedroom all to yourself! It is a 2 bedroom 1 bath with a full kitchen. We have high speed wireless internet, a 39inch HD TV with cable, plus blu-ray player, chromecast, etc!
You are steps away from a laundry room with coin operated washer/dryer. The washer is $1 per cycle and the dryer is $.75 per cycle.
The apartment is situated in a small complex with very nice neighbors. For $5 extra per day you will have your own dedicated parking spot in the complex (parking is not a problem usually but it does depend on day, time, and events going on in the surrounding area).
Please note ***there is a cat in the apartment. His name is Walter Peter. He is neutered and has all his shots. He is very dorky and cute.
While staying in the small private room, you will have access to the kitchen, living room, bathroom, and balcony.
Interaction with Guests
Even if I happen to be out of town or at work, I am almost always available for any questions you may have!
The apartment is situated right above Sunset Blvd. in the heart of Echo Park. You are only a 5 minute walk from restaurants like Masa or El Compadre, bars such as Gold Room and El Prado, clothing stores, markets, and even The Echo/Echoplex and Lot 1 if you are interested in catching a live show!
You are only a 5 minute walk (.2 miles) from the intersection of Portia St. and Sunset Blvd., where you can access buses to take you all across the city! Union Station is 1.8 miles away if you are interested in taking the trains, subway, or the flyaway bus to LAX.
Other Things to Note
If you have not requested to park in the apartment parking space ($5 extra per day), please take note that there is street cleaning on Allison Avenue every Thursday and Friday. Please make sure to check the signs so you can move your car if necessary and avoid a ticket.
No smoking or vaping of any kind is permitted inside the residence; smoking/vaping is allowed on the balcony.
No additional overnight guests unless pre-approved.
This is the second time staying here, and all but one thing included, we loved it. It's out of the way and conveniently close to where we wanted to go all at the same time. Enough room for my and my friends things without feeling crowded, we were never crowding each other, it was a very pleasant stay at the apartment. The one thing I had trouble with, and didn't realize was how difficult parking was going to be. Without a parking space at the residence it's just a game of luck and chance to park close by on the street.
Shana has been a great host and welcoming. She provided suggestions on places to go for food. Her cat, Walter Peter, can be quite shy at first but he's pretty cool when he starts getting comfortable with your presence. Room was good, though it could get stuffy due to the hot weather and the other areas of the apartment were generally clean.
Shana was a wonderful host, making us feel very welcome in her space! The apartment was well situated, in a nice neighborhood, on a calm street, and it was easy for us to visit various parts of the city.
I had a wonderful time in Shana's apartment. It's located between Downtown and Hollywood and you can reach the bus in both directions within a 1 min. walk. Super easy!!!
The apartment itself is exactly like you would expect it to be. Clean, comfortable, cozy and it has evan a balcony where you can see the Hollywood Sign!
Shana is an awesome host! She's so nice and cares a lot about you having a good time. And she did well! I can recommend this place and hope you'll have a nice stay. :)
Shana was a simply lovely host. The place is adorable, the room is comfortable and has ample closet space so you don't just have to live out of a suitcase. Location is fantastic and really walkable to everything in Echo Park. Her cat is friendly but will leave you alone if you're not really a cat person. Shana could not have been more welcoming and accommodating, and I would definitely stay there again on another trip to Los Angeles.
Shana est une bonne hôte et très gentille, drôle, cool. La chambre dans laquelle je dormais moi et mon amie était très confortable, ainsi que l'appartement. Nous avions tous ce dont nous avions besoin dans son appartement.
Le logement est très bien placé à Los Angeles, il y a un arrêt de bus pas loin de chez elle. Le quartier d'Echo Park est très bien desservi par les bus qui mène au centre-ville. Echo Park est un joli quartier charmant, avec des bars, des cafés et des supermarchés à proximité.
J'ai passé une très bonne semaine à Los Angeles ainsi que bons moments (pas beaucoup) avec elle! Merci Shana de nous avoir accueilli ! :)
Shana was very friendly and effective when communicating with us during our trip to Los Angeles. The neighborhood was central to many parts of LA and parking was a breeze in the area. The balcony was sweet and the area has a lot of great restaurants and things to do.

About the Host, Shana
I am Shana! I am from a suburb about 20 miles outside of Los Angeles and have lived on the "eastside" for about 6 years now. I love it! I enjoy music, gardening, generally hanging out and being happy :)

This place is great. Inexpensive and delicious eats, refreshing watermelon mint lemonade, and it sits right along the beautiful lake. Very family friendly! $Echo Park Avenue Los Angeles CA 90026

Walk around the beautiful Echo Park Lake, take a nap on the lawn, or rent a pedal boat!Los Angeles CA 90026
Vons is your standard grocery store; somewhat overpriced compared to your bargain stores, cheaper than the gourmet stores. Go here for any staples you cant find at A Grocery Warehouse. $$N. Alvarado Los Angeles CA 90027
Only 1.9 miles from my place, here you can access Amtrak and Metrolink trains, subway stations, and the Flyaway bus that will take you to and from LAX for $8!Los Angeles CA 90012
Perch is pricey, so if you are on a limited budget but still want to check out the AMAZING view, head in for a cocktail. The bar area can get crowded and dining is reservation only. $$$South Hill Street Los Angeles CA 90013
