This bright one bedroom is in the very unique neighborhood of Echo Park and centrally located to almost everything. It is on the second floor of a quiet four unit building. Nice long windows let lots of light in, there is a wood floor, a decent sized bedroom with a queen bed, a nice living room, a complete kitchen, and a bathroom with a tub. There is a small outdoor deck, pretty much large enough to smoke, or ponder. The view on the "deck" is mostly of a cinderblock wall, but, hey. It's LA. And sometimes, it's very relaxing to look at cinderblock. Try it. The bedroom has windows covering almost half of the walls, and two trees surround the windows, offering a feel of being tucked in and private. I often wake up to birds chirping, a rooster crowing, green leaves, and the sweet smell of the flowering pomelo tree.
Echo Park can be noisy, but most nights it is just the usual LA hum: perhaps a helicopter, an ambulance, some dogs barking.
Street parking is almost always available out in front, or a very short walk away.
You will have the entire place to yourself, as I will be gone.
Queen sized bed with down comforter, plenty of pillows.
A work station in the main room (desk, extra MacBook Pro computer cord for laptop, and an additional screen should you wish to plug your laptop in and have more screen).
Tons of books. You are welcome to read any of them while you're here. If you find my diary, have at it.
A record player with a handful of country records, CD player, tape player and iPod dock.
Kitchen: I have most everything you will need for cooking and you are welcome to it. Pans, pots, good knives, grill pan, hand mixer, Cuisinart mixer, good blender, spices, oils, vinegars, butter (if in fridge), etc.
ROKU---Cable TV was the only box to check, but I have basic cable then on the Roku: Netflix and Amazon Prime video, Pandora
Two long skateboards you may borrow
Coffee and coffee maker (pour over)
Reusable shopping bags you may borrow.
Fresh towels and washcloths and sheets.

I will never be here, the place will be yours. Most likely I will be in Santa Barbara, an hour and a half away but reachable any moment by text or phone.
I am LGBT friendly.
No loud partying, and no pets. No hot dog eating contests.
I love to feel like a local when I travel: go to the farmer's market and cook dinner, walk around the block, hear the sounds of the neighborhood--essentially, to really feel like I've lived for a small moment in another place, instead of checking in and out. I hope I can offer you a similar, inexpensive experience when you stay at my place.
