Echo Park made the top 10 list of best places live in the US by APA (American Planning Association.

Below are just a few reasons why:

THE ECHO PARK LAKE - Recently renovated and reopened July 2013, Echo Park's park features Boat house, boat house Cafe, Peddle boats, canoes, gondolas, fountain, ducks, geese, walking paths....

ELYSIAN PARK - 600 acre wilderness preserve resides alongside the full length of Echo Park

BAXTER STAIRS- is 1.5 blocks of the tallest stairway in LA. It leads to spectacular views of The Hollywood Sign, Downtown LA, Glendale, Burbank, Griffith Observatory, etc

DODGER'S STADIUM - 3/4 of a mile away from our house

DOWNTOWN LA - about 5-7 min away driving from our house

FARMERS MARKET- 3 times a week (all the reasons to eat fresh and healthy produce)

Echo Park Farmers Market - Every Friday (1 mile away from our house )

Silver Lake Farmers Market- twice a week, every Tuesday and Saturday ( about 5 min driving from our house)


Echo Park is going back to its roots as a creative and artistic center for Los Angeles. The original silent film studios originated in Echo Park including Elendale and Keystone Studios. Other creatives who have called Echo Park home at one point or another are Steve McQueen, Frank Zappa and Shia La Beouf. Echo Park as part of “Hipster Heaven,” the set of neighborhoods in this section of LA that has a high percentage of the skinny-jeaned, vintage shirt wearing crowd. It definitely has its share of hyper-cool nightspots, like El Prado, a wine-bar that is more like a neighborhood watering hole (mostly locals) and The Short Stop, which is more dive bar than sports bar, drawing a lot of leather jackets and scruffy looking types. (There are also the dive bars, The Gold Room and Little Cocktails, just to name a couple.) If you are into dancing, The Echo or Bootie LA are the places to go.

Nightlife hot spots in Silver Lake are divided into authentic bo-ho hangouts (Cha Cha Lounge, Red Lion, Tiki-Ti, The Satellite) and upscale newcomers riding the rising rents (Mixville, Barbrix, Stella, Thirsty Crow).


Sunset blvd runs right through Echo Park with all it has to offer, dozens of amazing restaurants and shops : Vegan, Italian, Mexican, French, Japonese, Healthy juice stores, etc

For art lovers, nearby you will find MOCA, the Geffin Contemporary, RedCat, Machine Project, Echo Park Film Center and more. 20 minutes to LACMA. Without traffic in a 1/2 hour you can get to the Hammer Museum and the Getty Center.

It's 10 minutes to Little Tokyo, Chinatown, and 1/2 hour off peak gets you to the beach

You'll also find late-night food trucks, organic restaurants and an unconventional attitude - this area is the opposite of Hollywood glam. With off-beat bars, funky dance clubs and an artsy aesthetic throughout, this northeast area of Los Angeles has been ranked the #1 hipster neighborhood in the country by Forbes magazine. Featuring a population of musicians, artists, writers and yoga instructors, the trendy area of Silver Lake is one of the best destinations for nightlife in Los Angeles.


FREEWAY ACCESS - Convenient access to 2, 134, i5, 101 and 110 freeways.

FIX CAFE -is less than 500' feet away from our house

PUBLIC TRANSIT - Bus stop across from Fix Cafe on Echo Park Ave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

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.

Homey Haven in Echo Park

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Elena's cottage. We were in town visiting my son who lives in LA, and couldn't have found a better home base. The neighborhood is great: convenient, quiet, safe and eclectic. Parking is easy. Elena's is a charming home, comfortable, beautiful, nicely equipped and surprisingly private. Loved the front porch, the great couches in the living room, and all her welcoming touches. We'll hope to make this our go-to place when we're in LA from now on. Thanks, Elena and Dave!

Lovely Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this lovely vacation cottage in Echo Park. It was very comfortable, clean, quiet and provided everything we needed. We were impressed with the decorating and the charming style of the home. It was very nice to have a private front and back yard. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch to relax and always felt safe as the front gate could only be opened with an access code. We found that it was convenient for us to visit area attractions too. The only thing we could think of that would have been a nice addition was if a history of the home could have been provided. It would have been fun to read about the house and its previous owners and to see pictures of the house when it was new and what the neighborhood looked like then. We enjoy that kind of thing. Otherwise, we are both so glad that we found this gem. Thank you for providing such a nice place to stay for travelers.
