Old Hollywood had nothing on Echo Park. Keystone, Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle-the sullen flat where Ida Sessions met her fate in "Chinatown" is just around the corner and Echo Lake is the setting for many films and novels depicting the gritty paradox of L.A. Our space is a period studio with authentic bath & kitchen and a beautiful epoxy floor. Very quiet, the unit includes off street parking and a great location near downtown!

This was a great place to stay. It was a close walk to shops, restaurants and Echoe Lake. It was immaculate, comfortable and extremely quiet. There was ample parking and we really enjoyed the small private patio complete with lights and decor. You'll also have fun exploring all t…

We had a wonderful stay at William's place. The decor is spot-on – there are tons of amazing period details, all very well-done – and it was a comfortable and quiet place to relax. Echo Park is a great neighbourhood: walkable, friendly and with lots of great places to eat, drink …

Would not recommend this listing. Poor value for the money. Get a hotel instead.

Response from William:
Surprised to see Lee Anne's review especially after years of five star reviews of this space, which we put so much into maintaining. Unfortunately, she doesn't supply any details which would help us address whatever it was that troubled her. She did ask for a carving knife at one point, apparently oblivious to the block of specialty knives on the kitchen counter. In any event we want everyone to enjoy their stay and rarely encounter feedback like this.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Will's retro cottage tucked away in the hills of Echo Park. There was a bottle of chilled wine and cold water awaiting us when we arrived, which was a nice touch. The bed was on the softer side, but quite comfortable. The unit was very cle…

Will knocked it out of the park here. If you're looking to stay in the Echo Park area, then I highly recommend this studio apartment. It's stylish, but comfortable. Accessible, but private. Character-filled, but clean. Will was also a great host. Clear, helpful, and quick to re…

I grew up in Los Angeles and love the city and its neighborhoods. It's a bit funky for sure but it's also strangely indelible and I'm so pleased to be able to share my property on Airbnb and welcome visitors who seek something beyond a faceless hotel when they come here. Whether…
