About This Listing
Best neighborhood in LA! (if you wanna have fun) Close to Downtown, Hollywood, China town. In between Silverlake and Elysian Park. A Beautiful lake and park are just a block from the house :)
Living room (updated photo) Your private living room area, and the bedroom is through the door on the left.
Hello! 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! That being said 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 ;)
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 :)
Do it, book a reservation. Giulianna’s loveliness is reflected in her home. Guests are NOT an after thought, but will feel very much welcomed and provided for. It is the little things that make all the difference: house shoes, robe, labels throughout the kitchen and more. Giulianna is available for conversation, but is equally respectful of her guest’s privacy. Speaking of privacy, the bedroom and adjoining living rooms together make for a lovely suite and provides a wonderful escape for guests, especially after a long, activity-filled day. In addition to her hospitality, Giulianna’s creativity is food for both the eye and the soul—its inspiring. Already, I have applied a few of her ideas to my apartment.
Giulianna’s apartment is located a few steps from a reservoir with picnic tables, benches, grass, and a playground. Also steps from her apartment is Sunset blvd which oozes with cool shops, restaurants, a natural food store, and people. Yes, there was a little noise, but nothing a little ocean or new age music couldn’t take care of. I slept soundly. Giulianna also provides ear plugs, but I did not require them. Guests will enjoy their time here; i felt a little sad leaving.
Oh, and do not miss out on her back patio. It is a great place to chill while having breakfast or dinner, a cup of coffee, or a moment of solitude.
Giulianna and her place were both great! She has fantastic style, and her apartment was very chic and comfortable. The location is great - close to restaurants and bars, and half a block from Silver Lake. (Parking was always easy too) Giulianna was very friendly and welcoming, and gave us our space. My friend left behind a sweater, and Giulianna texted us right away to let us know so we could swing back and pick it up. (She actually even offered to mail it.) This was my first Air B&B experience and I can't say enough good things. Thanks Giulianna!
I loved staying at Giuliana's house. It is in a great location and has many wonderful features like the back patio, the lounge room and the view from the bedroom. The food and linen provided were all excellent. It is the perfect space toe explore LA from - I highly recommend staying at Giuliana's house.
My third trip to Giulianna's wonderful apartment in Echo Park. She is a terrific host - accommodating without being intrusive. The neighborhood is terrific. It is close a number of important buslines (you can get easily downtown, to the beaches at Santa Monica or Venice, and to West Hollywood without changing busses). It's vibrant, affordable, and fun. And the apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean, and secure. I can't say enough about this listing and its wonderful host. I hope to stay again...
Giulianna's place was great. Really central and close to cute bars and restaurants. Fab vegan spot on the corner and she literally 2 minutes from the lake.
Her home is beautiful, it's like a little guest house with labels for everything and a little terrace to have your morning coffee. Giuliana was also really quick to respond to any questions we had. I'd definitely stay there again.
We had the most wonderful time at Julianna's and you will too! The house is in the area of LA you want to be in, close to a pleasant park and really cool cafes and shops along Sunset. There's a nice mix of people and it feels very neighborhood. Julianna decorated the apartment in great style and we felt right at home. We had a bedroom and a livingroom plus use of the kitchen. We shopped at Lassens and had organic breakkies on the balcony. The streets around have free parking. Great great great.
This is a perfect base for a few days in LA. Guiliana's sunny room was really sweet, with even bathrobes provided and the adjoining living room ours to use. Unlimited in street parking just round the corner, two minutes walk from lovely Echo Park lake for sunny outdoor breakfasts and the best vegan restaurant ever one minute in the other direction. We were out lots so didn't see Giuliani much but had a nice chat one of the afternoons. Will stay again if we return!
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.
