About this listing
A private room in a sunny 2 bdrm apartment with excellent walkability. Enjoy nearby coffee shops, markets, music venues, restaurants/bars and a short walk to Dodger Stadium. Hang out on the deck and enjoy the view of the beautiful Echo Park hills.
Cozy bedroom in the top unit of a four-plex. Walking distance to coffee shops, a wonderful neighborhood market, a hair salon, hiking trails, and to Dodger Stadium. Centrally located near the junction of the 2, 5, 110, and 101 freeways; the apartment is very close to Downtown LA, Silver Lake, Atwater Village, & Los Feliz, and is just a short freeway ride away from Pasadena, Eagle Rock, and Glendale.
The private BEDROOM has a full-sized mattress bed, desk, window, and closet. I will provide clean sheets, blankets and towels upon check-in.
The KITCHEN is long, bright and complete with everything needed to prepare a meal.
The BATHROOM is small, but it has a shower with bathtub and plenty of hot water.
The apartment gets A LOT of great sunlight and has an incredible, large DECK with a picnic table. There is a very large back yard with a lemon tree, plum trees, and persimmon tree (when in season). The back yard is shared.
I have a small DOG, a chihuahua, and she is friendly, but will bark at strangers who walk into the house. Acknowledging her with a quick pat on the head makes her fall in love with you fast, if you are inclined to do so. I keep her in my bedroom with a small deck area, so she does not have free reign in the house when I am not home.
There is street parking only and can always be found; just watch out for street cleaning-- Thursdays and Fridays 8-10 am.
The washer and dryer in laundry room is coin-op, so please plan on getting quarters and detergent.
Interaction with guests
I work and I'm in and out. I am friendly and I LOVE hosting, but I also respect privacy and needing/giving space.
Other things to note
If you are looking for a space that is "dry" I am happy to lock up any alcohol and refrain from using it openly during the stay of sober guests.
I appreciate people who are kind to me and my dog, considerate of the space and my things, and love good food/music. I am mostly relaxed and quiet at home, and I like to spend time with friends enjoying a glass of wine, making dinner or watching a movie.
So, mellow and clean guests are preferred, and I appreciate people having fun and bringing a cheerful spirit into the apartment as well. LIGHT smoking is cool on the deck but never inside.
Guests are expected to be respectful of me/my things and tidy up after themselves. Please always wash your dishes, and don't make too much noise after 11 pm since we are in a four-plex, aka have neighbors.
Shoes off in the house is best, too but I'm not a stickler about that at all!

I live for road trips and believe LA is the best place to live if you want to go away for a weekend. In a less than 2 hour drive you can be hiking in the desert, laying on the beach, or skiing in the mountains. AirBnB makes road trips happen. I'm excited to host new people and for the opportunity to make your adventure that much better. Having a comfortable place to rest your head at night is what I offer, with a few other fun things thrown in.
