About this listing
PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU SEND A INQUIRY: This is not suitable for children, pets, and is most suitable for 1 guest, or a couple who can share a bed. It is a full size bed. The area is URBAN, it is in the center of town, and a very busy area. That can mean noise and limited parking. With that it is a really fun area with tons of things to do! all walking distance. I live in a beautiful old 2 bedroom apartment right in the heart of Echo Park! It was built in 1918! We are a half block from Sunset blvd, and a half block to the Lake! There is a ton of stuff to do within a 2 minute walk. The bus stops are also within a block! Super fun area, and close to downtown, Chinatown and Hollywood. This is a busy, crazy neighborhood, with tons of bars, and people, so if you are looking for a quiet "retreat" this isnt for you. The house is quiet however, I am hardly home, and my neighbors are great! You will have your own private livingroom and bedroom. The kitchen is stocked with what ever you need to cook, and I provide cereal, coffee, tea, juice etc. The bathroom is shared, with me only, and its cleaned daily. Its a huge place and very clean and cozy. There is no parking at the house, but there is a parking lot next door for 2.50 per day or else FREE street parking. I provide towels, linens, toiletries, a hair dryer, bathrobes, slippers (no shoes in house) Umbrella, luggage scale, etc etc. Basic Cable TV also. Basically most everything you will need while traveling. Hope to see you soon, take care.
All rooms except mine.
Interaction with Guests
I try to give my guests privacy and make them feel at home.
The diversity, the endless restaurant supply, the Bars, the Echo Park Lake, and the close proximity to Downtown and Hollywood.
We are a block from the buses, and very close to Union Station.
Other Things to Note
The house is OLD, lots of charm, not a lot of modern things. I dont have central heat, just a gas heater in the main room and your room has a space heater. Its only chilly a few months here in sunny LA ;) There is a window A/C unit in your room.
Sorry but no pets and no children. Be nice. Be clean, be respectful. Sorry but no shoes inside, I do have slippers for you :) Any additional guests coming to the property that are not part of the reservation are prohibited for liability reasons. We try to keep noise levels down after 10pm to respect our neighbors. I am willing to provide basic cleaning of the main areas, and laundry for sheets and towels, but the rest is up to you. make sure to wash dishes asap. There is a backyard area as well as the private deck, you are welcome to use it. :) This is not a hotel, so please take care of the things in the house. Feel at home, and enjoy this awesome area :)
About the Host, Giulianna
I am like a punk rock Martha Stewart. I had my own clothing line for years, now I cook and sell wine and beer. I paint, draw, play music, sew,, detail vintage cars, volunteer, and purchase brick a brack in absurd quantities at local thrift stores, travel, and get to the ocean as much as possible. My favorite thing to do is have people stay at my house, I love being a hostess.
