This is a spacious and quiet garden studio located two blocks from Mohawk Bend on the border between Silver Lake and Echo Park a 5 min walk from restaurants, cafes, shops and more with driveway parking.
This is a 600 sq. ft. detached studio behind a quaint 1920s Spanish house where I reside. There is a charming, smallish backyard with a vegetable and herb garden that you are welcome to help yourself to. Your studio has a sliding door in the living room that opens onto the backyard. When opened completely it makes for a fluid indoor/outdoor living space. The door needs a little coddling to open but after a two-minute tutorial you will be a pro! Some guests choose to leave the sliding door completely open whenever they are home, especially when the mercury rises. You will have your own bathroom, recently repainted with a new shower and sink and a small area for light cooking. We do share Internet over Wi-Fi from the front house, so the reception is not always perfect. Streaming movies doesn't usually pan out, but the connection is decent. There is a closet with hangers and an empty tower bookshelf by the bed, and two shelf spaces in the living room for your belongings. (The living room is separated from the bedroom by curtains.) The TV functions with rabbit ear antennas accompanied by a DVD player (old school). You are also welcome to read any of the books I have. The living room has been recently repainted. All in all you will find this to be a colorful, and pleasant space to be in this great sprawling City of Angels.
You can access the studio through a side gate at the end of the driveway, which is all yours to use.
I live on the premises and am always in town when renting out the back house. I am a 41 year old French/American who grew up in Hollywood and works among other things as a guide, so I know the city well if you have any questions. I speak English, French, and also passable to decent Spanish (hablo español) Although I will not be getting in your way, you will see me around. You might spot me in the backyard, especially to check on the vegetable garden.
Please be aware if the temperature is soaring, the space can get hot. While I will be installing an air conditioning/ heating unit soon, for now there is an evaporative cooler (new one ) for taming the heat and a mobile space heater for cool nights or the bathroom in the morning. However, as I mentioned earlier, there is a sliding door that opens wide onto the garden for an immediate cooling effect!
I appreciate guests on the quieter side, as I live next door. But of course I would want you to make yourself feel at home. No pets please. 420 friendly indoors, but please keep cigarette smoking for the outdoor area only. Music is fine until 10 p.m. After 10, please be more discreet. This being an old place be careful if you have too many things on or running (space heater, hair dryer, lights) as you might blow a fuse. A quick trip to the circuit breaker in the front will fix it. Thanks for understanding!
