Overview

About the property

Clean, artsy, brightly lit house, sleeps 6 on a quiet street in trendy EP.

Find yourself at home in this traditional California craftsman house. Decorated with designer customized furniture and details, your stay will feel like an artistic cozy retreat with all the necessary modern amenities.

Located in a quiet residential area, choose to live in peace or walk to all of Echo Park's hippest hangouts. Better yet make this your east side hub. We are close to the 2, 10, 5, 110, 101, 134 highways, downtown, Dodger Stadium, Pasadena, SGV, and Hollywood are all a skip away.

This beautifully renovated, 1000 square foot home features 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. There is a 3rd (media) room that contains a flat screen TV but can also be used as a small extra bedroom.

The front yard is landscaped with fruit trees including a giant avocado tree that shades the front porch but allows plenty of sunlight into the house and grape plants which drape the back porch.

House includes: 2 queen beds, 1 Queen futon bed, 1 Queen pullout bed which rests on the floor. 3 private rooms which can sleep 6. Pack-n-play for toddler. We allot up to 6 adults.

There is a shared backyard patio with the tenant who lives behind this house for outdoor dining. The property contains 2 separate homes. The onsite laundry facilities are shared with the back tenant but is easily accessible through the back kitchen door.

We are family friendly, non smoking, use eco friendly and child safe products. We keep this house very clean and ask you do the same. If you need items for kids, ask us, it's likely we can provide.

Please note: Due to the location of the house in the hills, cell phone service can be spotty. There is wifi and a landline but (lack of) cell coverage has to do with your carrier.

***** For Same Day Booking******

The site will not allow for same day bookings, but we will accommodate same day inquiries if the house is available and cleaned. Send us an inquiry and we can book your reservation from our end, but you must indicate that you would like to book.

About Matthew Pope

I am a contractor and designer working mostly in Los Angeles. I grew up in Berkeley, CA and my wife is from Va Beach, Va. We both manage this VRBO. We live close by with our kids, and you'll receive prompt, friendly attention from us.

Matthew Pope purchased this house in 2004

Why Matthew Pope chose Echo Park

This property belongs to my wife and I. I grew up living in old craftsman homes and personally renovated this craftsman and tried to maintain its original character and details. We've lived in Echo Park for over 14 years, we love this neighborhood, know many of our neighbors and business owners and we do our best to support this community.

What makes this house unique

The house sits atop the main residential street in Echo Park. You are just far enough away from the din of Sunset Ave, but close enough to be part of the action. It's centrally located for getting around Los Angeles towards Hollywood, downtown and east towards Pasadena and SGV. Downtown boasts some of the best culinary spots in the city and if you need to get to the westside, you're just 5 minutes from the 10 freeway.

The house is welcoming and relaxing, very clean, full of light and the porch is a place to prop up your feet. It is quintessential Los Angeles.

LA is an incredibly diverse place made up of small neighborhoods and it helps to have someone guide you through all of the possibilities and gauge what will make your stay more enjoyable. My wife and I know authentic LA pretty well now and we'd be happy to offer suggestions for your visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great neighborhood place! Very cool Craftsman that has been opened up and made airy and light, lots of charming details throughout like cool window latches and singular pieces of furniture, cool art on the walls, outdoor seating and garden area that our dog especially loved. Exceptionally comfortable for our family of 4 and rambunctious dog with the kitchen well stocked with useful items including everything from colanders to chopping boards. Hosts were very accommodating and the neighborhood is lovely, filled with mature trees and very walkable to a few cafes and neighborhood markets for groceries, as well as for hikes in Elysian park, and if you don't mind taking a longer walk, accessible to many, many cool restaurants and bars on Sunset.

Great little house, comfy, artsy and fun!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 4 kids (ages 8-14) and had plenty of space, good amenities and all that we needed. Location was a tad far from beach and Disneyland but we rented a car and just made the drive. Super cute house, great atmosphere.

Cozy, clean and convenient!

My family enjoyed our 2-night stay at this lovely home. It is in close proximity to Universal Studios, Griffith Observatory and great restaurants! We’ll definitely consider staying here again for future trips to SoCal. Thank you Michelle and Matt!

Lovely house in a lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the rental. It was clean, light, pretty, and well laid-out for two couples and a single person all in town for a wedding. The front porch was such a pleasure to hang out on -- morning, afternoon, evening, or night. So much of the local flora was in bloom during our late-May stay, making it absolutely delightful to walk for groceries, coffee, and meals. One must be a fairly enthusiastic walker, though, because the hills that give this neighborhood its character go both down and up and shops are a little distance away from the house. But Echo Park Ave is has gentle curves and we loved getting out. Thank you, Michelle and Matthew. You have a real gem here!

Clean, comfortable home precisely as pictured.

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were excellent communicators and provided clear instructions for check-in. We enjoyed the house, the beds were comfortable and the location worked well for us. Also loved that parking was included. If ever in the area again, we wouldn’t hestitate to book again.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this Echo Park craftsman! Michelle and Matthew have put a lot of love into this home and it shows. We worked during the day and had to sit in a bit of typical LA traffic, so coming back to this house, having a glass of wine on the porch and listening to music on the hi-fi was a treat. It's in a very chill part of the neighborhood near the top of the hill away from Sunset and Glendale and after getting settled in, we melted instantly. The extra touches like linen duvets, brass/wood flatware, sub-zero fridge and gorgeous dining table and chairs made the place feel like a super dialed-in dreamy hotel suite, but more—it felt like the Cali dream home I'd want for myself... We'll be back!

Echo Park has been named one of the best neighborhoods in America (NYT). You will find an eclectic mix of new and old, mom and pop shops, hipsters and non. The house is on the main street of Echo Park which leads you to Fix Coffee, Valerie's, Dinette, Ostrich Farm, Echo Park Lake, the Echo club, where you'll find the best up and coming bands/artists, and much much more. This ever changing neighborhood has its own personality of class, funk and street. Explore the walkable area which houses a weekly (Friday) farmer's market, Lassens - a full service organic supermarket, Cookbook (our local farm fresh grocer), vintage shops, taco stands, charming little boutiques or fiind easy access to downtown LA, Silverlake, Chinatown, Eagle Rock, Highland Park or Pasadena. You are at the center of the east side, an authentic and distinct part of LA.
