Steps away from Echo Park Lake, this historic home sits high above the streets, giving you panoramic views, privacy and tranquility. Perfectly situated a mile away from Downtown LA but in the middle of a multicultural, trendy yet classic LA 'hood.
Sometimes, when I have unexpected availability, I will offer last minute deals, so keep an eye out for them. I am far less likely to offer you a deal for a month out. Also, this house is NOT appropriate for filming so I won't agree that. Sorry.
Be responsible and respectful and use common sense. No loud parties. No illegal drugs, of any kind, ever. ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING in the house, ever. I have a strong preference against smoking on the grounds at all also since the smell lingers on the property and it does present a fire hazard.
Also, be truthful about the number of people in your party. To the extent I've any real issues with airbnb, it is this. Some people are untruthful about the size of their party. I've priced the unit so that it is very affordable option for a single traveler. I did that on purpose. I think two people or even three quite people in the unit are great. But, I've had people book for two and then have six people show up. Note that I live on the other side of the duplex and try to greet all guests, so inevitably, I will find out that you lied about the number of people in your party. The house is spacious but it is not set up to sleep more than three adults comfortably. That is my preference for my home: to keep it low-density. (There are a lot of reasons for that: utilities in LA are expensive and there is a difference between two and five people using water; and then there is noise; and the potential for drama, among other reasons.) All I ask is that you respect my request that you keep your party small-ish and be thruthful when you book. If you want to discuss a specific exception, just let me know. For example, you may have a friend staying over only one night, or you are a couple traveling with two children, so making your group 4 instead of 3. (Note that children are indeed "people'.) I would consider that. I'm flexible -- within reason.
I am a lawyer in private practice. I am also very active in Los Angeles' civic life and community. So I am both very busy and very private, but I also greatly enjoy living in this neighborhood and in this city. I've spent my life in Los Angeles and my adult life in Echo Park, so I am always happy to share all that I know about the neighborhood and the city. I have a car, but I walk a lot and take the bus and try to minimize my reliance on my car. It is doable -- if you live or stay in Echo Park.
