Melissa and her family are wonderful hosts. The space I lived is very nice and they are quick to respond if anything is needed. I am enjoying the place and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice quiet space with hosts that are good people who are very responsive.

We were very pleased with the accommodations at Melissa's cozy apartment in Los Angeles. We have two girls and they slept perfectly fine in the living room. My husband and I slept in the bedroom, on a very comfy mattress. The location was ideal to get to many attractions. The free parking was a big savings. When we had questions or requests Melissa was always available. She's a wonderful host. We highly recommend her place.
I'd recommend Melissa's place without reservation. Squeaky clean, well-appointed, quiet and really lovely neighborhood, accessible and very friendly hosts - what more could one ask? Well, one could ask for 1 car parking, a lovely 1-BR with full bath and kitchenette, spacious living room, wifi, Netflix/Apple TV, and a chilled bottle of sparkling lemonade to greet you after your hot drive in. And you wouldn't be disappointed. Great books in the shelves, too! The 3 of us (my husband, 7 year old daughter, and I) stayed for a few days and wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you, Melissa and family!
We had a wonderful stay at Melissa guest house. Everything was just as we expected, and the neighborhood is great.
We had a great time staying with Melissa.
Location could not be better and amenities are state of the art.
We are definitely planning on staying there again!
The accommodations are spacious and clean. We were a family of four and felt right at home. Melissa and her family were friendly and helpful. We highly recommend using the Magic Castle invitation. This a great benefit of staying with Melissa as it is an exclusive club. This was one of the highlights of our trip. We hope to be back in the Los Angles area again and would love to stay there again. She is centrally located but in a quiet neighborhood. We would recommend this listing to anyone, and already have suggested it to friends.
I selected this guesthouse primarily for its location near my daughter in Echo Park and the good reviews from past guests. It was clean, bright, quiet and (email hidden)l features I was looking for. Lighting in the bathroom was very good and the big soft towels were much appreciated. Melissa was a lovely and accommodating hostess! She provided helpful maps and info on local dining spots in the unit, which would be useful to guests not familiar with the area. I will certainly try to reserve the guesthouse again for my next visit to L.A. Although Echo Park might not be the best location for everyone, Melissa's place is a bargain for the area where nice, reasonably-priced accommodations are scarce!
Melissa and Ryan are great host. They are really helpful, responsive and easy to communicate. The house is lovely, well equipped and very well located. It's my first and a great Airbnb experience. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
Had a great stay! The apartment is bright, airy and had everything we needed. Melissa made everything very easy for us and was very responsive with communicating. Would definitely stay here again the next time we're in LA.
Melissa and her family were perfect guests. They were incredibly laid back, flexible, and considerate. Welcome back any time!
Melissa is a great Hostess. I should know, I spend many afternoons and evenings being entertained by her and her wonderful family. I work with her too, so I know how smart and well organized she is.
The place is amazing and located on a magical tree covered hill dotted with creative people making their dreams come true. A true LA experience. Do it.
Melissa is a close friend who lives a couple blocks from my home. On a personal level she's honest, fair, and pleasant, and her home is lovely. Whether you're renting a place to her or renting her place, you're golden. Don't expect any issues or problem, just a lovely experience!
