The Space

Our Los Angeles home is a restored 1930's spacious one bedroom apartment in a tri-plex I own with my two brothers.

The bedroom has a California King bed, touch-adjust lighting and ceiling fan, walk in closet, and side table with docking stereo for your iPhone. Also, we have a Pack'n'Play for those with small children.

The bathroom is newly renovated and is light and airy with a full tub and shower for tall people.

The living room is spacious with design furniture and windows looking out on the tree-tops and the mountains behind. There is a flat screen tv (local stations only) with DVD player, stereo and wireless internet throughout the home.

Kitchen has everything you need with four burner gas range-top and conventional oven. Subway-tile splash and original double basin sink. There is a dishwasher, toaster oven, and built-in faucet with double filtered water purifier. Just off the kitchen is the laundry room with washer and dryer.

There is gated parking for one car. The driveway is narrow so you have to take it slow. There is also parking on the street. Be sure to read street cleaning signs to avoid parking tickets on Monday and Tuesdays 12p-3p.

Happy to help with questions if you have them.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the shared sun deck at the back of the property with BBQ, dining table and chairs. If you use the sundeck facilities you are responsible for your own safety and we ask that you leave it as it was before your use.

Interaction with Guests

We are living in Berlin Germany for the moment so our only interaction will be online or on the phone. We will be in contact though airbnb to be sure you are all set for your arrival, check in with you once you have settled in to be sure everything is in order and again just before you leave if you have any questions.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is at the southeast corner of Korea-Town, south of Echo Park and Silverlake and just west of Downtown. The first suburb of downtown Los Angeles, there are many historic buildings and architectural treasures. MacArthur Park is a 5 minute walk down from our hill with a small lake to walk around, soccer field, playgrounds and an amphitheater with summer concert series. There are a lot of Central American families living here and some great little restaurants... but the gem in Los Angeles' restaurant crown is Langer's Deli which was voted best Deli in America some time back - order sandwich #19!!

Also, here is a great piece the New York Times did on the neighborhood with great suggestions!

Getting Around

Getting around LA couldn't be easier from our place, with or without a car. The neighborhood is between Echo Park and Korea Town, close to Silver lake, Los Feliz, and is a 20 minute walk to Downtown. It's only a 7 minute walk to the Subway- Red Line Westlake station and the 720 Rapid Bus that takes you straight to the ocean. Driving, you are minutes away from Hwy-101, Hwy-110, Hyw 10, I-5 and 2 freeways.

Other Things to Note

The dishwasher only uses liquid detergent so please no powdered dish soaps.

House Rules

This is our family home and we only ask that you take care of it as you would of your own. My brothers also live in the building so please be kind, courteous and quiet. There are two separate entrances; the stairwell at the front houses our father's paintings and though they may not be worth much in the art world, they are priceless to us. If you use this entrance you must always be certain it is locked, even when you are home. The second entrance is the back stairwell through the side gate where the parking is, we would appreciate if you used this entrance as it is the safest, quietest and most private of the two. (please be sure to open and shut this gate quietly as it can make a good deal of noise. Thanks)
