I like to provide a simple, quiet space from which you can explore the city or in which you can get work done. I have a small graphic design studio, and appreciate the details.

Jessica's place is wonderfully nonchalant and shows a great sense of style! She has been a generous and very uncomplicated host.
This was my second stay at Jessica's place. I love it. It is quiet and comfortable and Jessica is the perfect welcoming host. Love the garden, love the neighborhood. It's my favorite place to stay in Echo Park, I'lll be back!
Jessica was a wonderful host- welcoming me into her home, in addition to being accommodating and helpful. I honestly fell in the love with the accommodations and felt quite at home. The decor was beautifully done and cosy, and the outdoor garden was a haven. It was peaceful to read and work in the garden, and my favorite, was to watch the sun rise and set. The neighborhood was quiet, safe and well situated. I look forward to my next visit and stay!
This place was the perfect oasis in Echo Park. The place is cozy and perfectly stocked with everything you need. The outdoor space for me though was my favorite part of the experience. I would feel comfortable staying there for a night or a more long term stay. Jessica was a great host and I look forward to staying here again next time I am in LA.
This place is the perfect private oasis to relax and watch the sunset after a long day. Jessica is down to earth and approachable, and I would not think twice to recommend this place to anyone who wants to feel at home. Her dog ruby is also a total sweetheart. My sincerest thanks to you Jessica for softening our crash-landing in LA!
Just another rave review for this place. We stayed here for our first month in Los Angeles, while looking for our own apartment, so it truly became home. It couldn't have been better for us: peaceful, beautiful, in a great location. We enjoyed so many sunsets sitting and dining in the garden, and Jessica was a lovely host. I felt like I was living in my own little private writing retreat. If you just need a spot to stay in Echo Park while doing your own thing, it's super comfortable, but if you have the time to really enjoy the space itself, even better. Great for any writers or other artists, I can't say enough good things about it. Magical!
We spent a few weeks here and really had the time to experience what it is like to live here… And well, to be honest, we are definitely going to miss it!
The apartment is nicely decorated and extremely quiet, though it is a few blocks away from very nice cafes and stores on Sunset Boulevard – Stories and FIX were our favorites. The neighborhood is lovely; quiet but not dull.
We had a space of our own, but Jessica was there whenever we needed advice or help for anything. We really enjoyed spending time with her and her tips for visiting LA and the desert were great.
And, last but not least, the garden is heaven on earth. The camelia tree was in bloom when we arrived; the passiflore had started blooming by the time we left, and in the meantime, we tasted the delicious peaches of the garden (pick them in the morning, when the sun is heating them…) I could've spent my whole stay just gazing at this garden (squirrels, hummingbirds and scrub-jays are there to entertain you).
Thank you so much, Jessica (and come visit us in Paris whenever you want!)
Jessica's little garden apartment is an oasis of calm. The windows provide a nice breeze, the rooms are tastefully decorated and there are new laundry machines in the basement steps away. But the best thing is just coming home to that peaceful garden. And Jessica is helpful and communicative. Thanks for a great stay! I may well be back.
It was spring so the Magnolia tree outside the kitchen window was in full bloom. My mom made breakfast every day in the well-stocked kitchen and loved working at the bedroom desk. When she left behind a sentimental object Jessica contacted me right away and arranged for it's return. If you live in the Silver Lake/Echo Park neighborhood and you'd like your visitors to stay close by and experience the boho hillside lifestyle, I highly recommend Jessica and her beautiful garden home.
The place is lovely if you're after a quiet place to stay in eastside LA, nestled up in the hills, close to Silverlake and downtown. The space itself is very nicely done – old-fashioned without feeling old, cozy – clearly a nice aesthetic sense has gone into it. It's a place that just feels nice in a way that's difficult to put into words. It's quite small but perfectly adequate. Things to know: it's below the main house so while you have access to the garden you won't see much in the way of views from your window; you can hear anyone walking upstairs pretty clearly – not so bothersome but noticeable; it's pretty dark up there and there's no light outside your door so coming back at night make sure to bring a light source. Also, as it's up in the hills with steep slopes all around, it's not great for taking walks unless you're ready for some strenuous exercise and it's not close to any shops – you have to drive every time you leave the house (which presumably most visitors to LA are prepared for). Also, this is not a truly fully stocked kitchen – it has the basics and you can prepare food there, but if you're big into cooking you'll need to bring some of your own things or get a little creative. The very old oven and stove looks super cool but only functioned so-so; the kettle was broken; no colander to rinse pasta – little things like that. All of that said, if you're aware of the limitations and okay with them you'll have a really nice stay, as we did.
Jessica was great! She left the place spotless, I'd have her back anytime.
