Mia was a great host. The apartment was spotless, designed to maximise space and was very comfortable. The location is fantastic. In terms of exploring SilverLake and Echo park you really can't get more central. There are many local fabulous food experiences to enjoy, from the local food trucks to awesome fusion Vietnamese.
If you want to experience the real LA i would encourage anyone to stay out here vs the unusual west Hollywood. This is far more interesting.
I moved to LA in December and wanted to stay in a furnished place while I figure out where to move permanently. Mia's place was perfect! Great hosts! The place is very central, walkable, and comfortable.
I would definitely recommend Mia's place!
Work took me to LA for three weeks, visiting the House Clinic. I need somewhere close to stay and this apartment was in the right area. The apartment is very conveniently located next to an intersection with lots of bus lines. I took the bus everywhere I needed to go around LA. TAP cards can be purchased and recharged at a store just near the bus stop - so easy! I also loved how close Vons was. I was surprised with how many restaurants and stores are nearby, I was really happy. A great discovery (with recommendation from Mia) was Silver Lake. Best coffee in LA!
The bonuses were more than just location though. A washer and dryer are invaluable when travelling. I also appreciated the kindness of Mia & Anthony. They were very caring and helpful, I felt welcomed.
The apartment was clean and comfortable. Lots of cupboard space. The kitchen was clean and the oven appeared to be hardly used. Love a kitchen when I'm away for a long period.
Most importantly, as a solo female traveller, I felt safe in the apartment and walking to the bus stop at night.
In the final week I rented a car and was able to park it on site, which was great as the street is busy.
The biggest surprise from the trip was my new found love of LA. My first two brief trips didn't leave me wanting to return, but after this trip, I'll be back. I think my experience at Mia's helped change my feelings about LA.
A couple of recommendations of nearby places to visit when you're there are:
Covell Wine Bar - great place for a drink! Went too many times
Mother Dough - authentic Napoli pizza, go after Covell for pizza and the burratta salad - delicious
Cafe Stella - love the food, French bistro.
Coffee Intelligentsia - next to Cafe Stella. Best coffee in LA in my opinion
L & E Oyster Bar - Silver Lake.
A little further out - we loved Osteria Mozza, Red O, ink and AOC Wine Bar & Restaurant.
Enjoy LA and the hospitality!
This was my 3rd stay with Mia and Anthony, and although shorter than my usual visit - it was as smooth as usual !
Mia & Anthony are very considerate and accommodating hosts. They were very friendly and considerate of my needs; (ie. provided extra clothes hangers, generous in sharing laundry facilities, offered to remedy dust and ants during a current repavement project). They were also very inviting and hospitable (i.e.. offered free fix to local events, provided tour guidance in local attractions, gave me a Starbucks card out of generosity, and showed me their home remodeling projects). Great people to have as hosts!!
This is the second time I have stayed with Mia and Anthony. Great convenient location, great hosts.
This was my first time in LA and I had a great time!, The location is really good, very central and convenient. Mia and Anthony are great hosts!
I had a great time staying with Mia and Anthony and recommend anyone who enjoys Echo Park to stay here. The newly redone lake is so close you and can walk! You are also very close to the 101 and many restaurants are within walking distance. I loved it.
Only good things to say about Mia, anthony, and their accom.
Clean, comfy, great area, good people, up for a chat if you want it, or privacy ensured if you want that!
I'll be back one day I hope.
I stayed here for close to 7 weeks as I was in the process of relocating back to LA and needed a centrally located place to transition.
Mia was a lovely hostess, very responsive and friendly, and the property was exactly as advertised. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It's right off the 101 and 2 freeways, so easy access to transportation. I was downtown in less than 10 minutes. Walking distance to a Vons, and several good coffee shops.
The neighborhood is very quiet and felt safe. I was always able to find street parking, though occasionally did have to walk a few (short) blocks if I got home late at night.
Mia's husband and his band stayed with us, and they were an awesome group to host! Very cool group, and hope to see them again.
