The space

Free standing guesthouse with private entrance in Elysian Heights. Clean and airy with lots of light. Indoor and outdoor space balanced by an open kitchen that leads to private deck / pebble garden, surrounded by lush plants.

Our guest house is not lived in by somebody else and is a free standing building with no shared walls. We take pride in its simplicity. The queen bed is super comfy, firm but supple with temperpedic top layer. The kitchen is includes stainless steel appliances, quality cookware, dishware, toaster, complimentary small batch coffee and a variety of teas along with essentials like olive oil, sea salt and pepper. And if you need additional cooking tools we're well stocked next door and happy to share! Flatscreen HDTV with cable (supports netflix, amazon, etc.). Modern high capacity washer and dryer reserved exclusively for guests.

If you're looking for your own spacious, private garden the setup is ideal. The outdoor space is slightly larger than the guest house. The deck is bordered by lights on a dimmer, which makes for great ambience after sunset. Large cacti, mature yucca and cypress trees, jasmine and potted plants/herbs surround the outdoor space. The deck is also cut around a tree which offers a canopy of shade in the warmer months. Enjoy afternoon naps in the hammock tucked under the apricot tree.

We provide clean towels, soaps, a hair dryer, iron, yoga mats, new scanner/printer, an acoustic guitar and a small Weber charcoal grill. We also offer hi-speed wifi via Apple's airport express router. You can also stream music wirelessly from your laptop to an amp with speakers (or plug-in your iPhone/iPod directly).

Traveling with children? We have a pack n play and some toys/books you are welcome to use. We also have a spare mattress. While the space is ideally suited for two people, several small families have enjoyed a comfortable stay. Feel free to inquire.

Guests have their own private entrance from the street. The outdoor space is also for guest use only (not shared).

We really enjoy meeting new people and making them feel at home. We are also totally cool with giving our guests all the privacy they need.

The location is ideal for Echo Park. We're nestled up in the canyon which gives a secluded feel but not way up a steep hill or at the end of the neighborhood, so walking to cafes and restaurants is still easy. The dash bus stop is a minute walk away. There is excellent coffee around the corner (Pollen) and Elysian Park (the oldest and second largest park in LA) is just up the Baxter stairs.

Restaurants, cafes, bars, a yoga center and pilates studio, mom and pop shops, a gourmet boutique grocery market, a record store and music venues are within walking distance too.

Echo Park is funky and charming with historic architecture and a hillside landscape, carved up by walking paths and hidden stairways. The wooded hillsides make the northern edge of the neighborhood feel like an extension of Elysian Park, despite being located in the heart of Los Angeles.

The Dash bus is less than a minute from the front door (which will take you down to Sunset Blvd in 3 minutes). Silver Lake is our next door neighbor. Downtown is 5 minutes by car. The 2, 5, 101 and 110 freeways are all super close.

Other nearby neighborhoods include Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Chinatown, East Hollywood, Hollywood, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Glendale, Burbank and Pasadena, which are all between 5 and 15 minutes away by car. LAX is 25 to 30 minutes, longer at rush hour of course.

We reserve our space for travelers and guests looking for a slice of home away from home. If you're looking to rent our space for film shoots and other commercial endeavors we're not interested.

We try our best to accommodate early checkins and late checkouts, but this is rarely possible when we have guests arriving and departing on the same day. Feel free to inquire, otherwise checkin time is 3 pm (or anytime thereafter) and checkout is 11 am.

We loved staying here- a great little retreat after the day exploring the city. Nice area, easy walk down to good coffee at dinette or blue bottle. Hopefully the place is free next time we are in town!
