Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This sunny 2BR cottage was originally built in 1926 and features many recent updates. The fenced yard offers you a quiet retreat, with a front porch and a lush backyard with BBQ and patio table.

Charming touches like exposed beams, original woodwork, and bright décor give the space character. This cottage makes a perfect vacation spot for a family or group, and it’s also centrally located near downtown and movie studios for business travelers.

You’re situated on a quiet, tree-lined street in the historic neighborhood of Echo Park. You’ll find plenty of hip nearby dining options. Downtown L.A. is just over 3 miles away, and for a day at the beach, Santa Monica is less than 20.

ABOUT THE COTTAGE

After a day of exploration, head home and unwind on the welcoming front porch—choose between two sets of chairs and enjoy a quiet cocktail.

In the fenced backyard, fire up the BBQ and throw steaks on the grill and gather at the five-person table for a relaxed al fresco meal.

Inside, the kitchen is bright and inviting, with light-green cabinets and a gas range. The built-in breakfast nook seats six and makes a cozy spot for your morning coffee.

For a relaxing evening, stretch out on the comfortable sectional sofa in the living room and enjoy the warm ambience of the electric fireplace while watching a movie on the 55” flat screen TV.

In the master bedroom, you’ll find a queen bed, a 32” flat screen TV, and plenty of storage space. The second guest bedroom has a daybed that converts to a king. The nearby bathroom has a tub/shower combination.

Amenities include air conditioning and complimentary Wi-Fi. You’ll find a washer/dryer set in the sunroom off the kitchen, as well as an iron and ironing board. Parking is on the street.

THE LOCATION

This cottage is located on a quiet, tree-lined street in the historic neighborhood of Echo Park. Take a stroll to nearby Elysian Park. For a meal out, walk or drive to an array of hip local restaurants. Masa Bakery & Café (1 mile) serves Chicago-style pizza. Elf Café (1.5 miles) features vegetarian dishes with a Mediterranean flair. And Spain Restaurant (0.8 mile) offers paella, empanadas, and a small market.

For a breakfast treat, Chango Coffee is a great spot for pastries and Glowing Juices serves up healthy concoctions. Both are just a 15-minute walk.

Downtown L.A. is just over 3 miles away, and for a day at the beach, Santa Monica is less than 20 miles.

Catching a game is easy! Dodgers Stadium is only 1.5 miles away.

For business travelers, this home is centrally located near Warner Brothers, Paramount, and Disney studios. All are under a 25-minute drive.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I had such an amazing time at Elena's house! It's incredibly charming, spacious and clean, and the backyard is like paradise! It's so serene and quiet, and especially in this lovely LA weather, it was nice to just lounge. Also, it easy to get around since it's close to the freeways, and very easy to find. I highly recommend Elena's house for anyone needing a cozy and charming place to stay. I know we'll be back!

Reviewer Comments:

I was very happy with the location. Not far from downtown. Short Uber rides to downtown. The area isnt great with service but the wifi in the house took care of that. Didn't realize until the end of the trip that there are restaurants in the neighborhood.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is charming and in a good location. However it needs some fixing up, the bed in the master bedroom is uncomfortable and hard to sleep on. The showerhead was totally calcified and was finally exchanged after a few days. The porch and back yard are very nice and as on the pictures, however the BBQ could not be used as the gas tank was empty. Parking was sometimes difficult, especially on the weekends.

Owner's Response: Hi Noura, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We are sorry to hear about the issues you encountered and for any inconvenience they caused as well. At TurnKey, it’s our highest priority to make sure our guests have the best experience possible, but if problems do arise, we try our very best to make things right in any way we can. It looks like we were able to send someone out to replace the showerhead, and we are so glad you called our 24/7 guest hotline to let us know about it. Please be assured our local Field Operations Team is following up on everything else you’ve mentioned and will make sure the master bed is repaired and the propane tank for the BBQ is refilled. If there is anything else we can still do for you, please reach out any time and let us know. -The TurnKey VR Team

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5

Super comfy home, with little extras to make it feel like home. Loved the front porch, and dining out in backyard. Heat spell while visiting, but a/c kept us cool. Elena was a lovely host, and responded to any need. Hope to return. Susan

Comfortable, Magical, and Modern

  • 5 of 5

My group of friends booked this place last-minute expecting just a place to sleep, but we got so much more. This house has the charming design of the 1930s and the modern conveniences of the 21st century. With touches like a mural on the kitchen ceiling, an Apple-connected 3D TV, and some of the most comfortable furniture I've ever used, this house is full of pleasant surprises. It is conveniently situated in a quiet neighborhood not too far from all the major attractions in LA. The owner, Elena, is a professional who thinks of everything you could possibly need during your stay. Check-in was a breeze, linens and sundries are abundant, and there's even book of personal recommendations for nearby restaurants/attractions. Whether you're trying to escape from the bustle of downtown or just using the house as a place to crash after a long day, I could not think of a better place to stay in LA!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I rented this property for an extended Father's Day weekend (baseball). The house was outstanding! It was very comfortable in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It was very well appointed and had everything we needed. The owner was great to deal with. All questions were answered quickly and with great detail. The house manual was very helpful as was another book on local restaurants. This would definitely be my first choice when returning to the area and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.
