Perched above a quiet street, you're in the heart of trendy Echo Park and LA's east side. A very clean, artsy home with design conscious amenities throughout, a full kitchen, private parking space, sitting porch and 5-20 min. walk from shops & cafes.

The space

This house is the front house of two houses on a lot. The house is 1000 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bath with an extra "media room" that can also be used as a 3rd bedroom with a futon couch. There are 2 queen beds, 1 futon bed (sleeps 2), and 1 Queen floor mattress. We prefer that the couch not be used for sleeping. We are family friendly. There is a pack-n-play for toddlers. Master bath with shower is located in the master bedroom. Second bath with shower located off the kitchen.

The spot was really cozy and comfortable and Matthew and Michelle were great hosts! A really magical and serene space, but still close to everything LA has to offer. Oh, and the fold out bed is a nice, thick memory foam mattress, not an air mattress like the description says. It was very very comfortable, even better than the mattress I have at home.

Nice little neighborhood, if you like to walk there are a few mom and pop resturants down the hill about a 15min walk or less. Home was clean and the decor was perfect for the hipster town. Snacks were provided when we arrived which was nice as we figured out what to get for dinner. The house is stocked with necessities. I strongly suggest parking on the street if you have a low car. All in all great experience.

A beautiful house in a great neighborhood for your next LA stay! Matthew and Michelle were great hosts and super easy to communicate with. The house is very clean, the beds are comfy, and the location is great for easy trips downtown or as a nice retreat after a long day on the coast. Highly recommend this place!!

My family of four stayed here for two weeks while we had remodeling done in our home. While this is an older home, it is very well maintained and we were comfortable (great A/C and heat and updated bathrooms). Matt and Michelle were very responsive whenever we needed anything. My kids loved walking in the surrounding hills and visiting Echo Park Lake and Elysian Park.

My friends and I loved staying at Matthew and Michelle's house. Though I never got to meet them in person, they were great communicators and they made sure our stay was comfortable. I loved the way the house was furnished and decorated. They even had some snacks prepared for us. Would love to stay here again.

Hi, I own and operate Black Star Projects, a design and build firm. This house belongs to my wife and I. This was our first home together. I restored this house, put a lot of love and care into it and tried to preserve the rustic nature of the traditional California craftsman. It's furnished with a few of my furniture designs and we hope you'll find this house an artistic retreat or a sweet and charming getaway.

We are meticulously clean about our property and because we live close by, we try to be as responsive as possible.
