It's popular with artists and musicians and the creatives of LA.

7 minutes to the center of DTLA.

This is a great space for creatives or if you have an interest in the arts.

IMPORTANT: We are in the most diverse city in America. My neighborhood has is rapidly gentrifying. On my block there are lovely people that are White, Black, Hispanic, Indian, Korean and Japanese. If people with different color skin make you uncomfortable do not book here. And if you are from suburbia it may appear too gritty for you. Everyone has a different comfort level.

Why Elizabeth Davidson chose Los Angeles

AMAZING! This is so incredible to have the space to enjoy our lives. We loved the central location... and we were blown away at how quiet it is. There were so many amazing design details- 2500 square foot of 2nd floor. The first floor is one of the most unique in LA. Not a single wall shared with others.

Location, location, location!

There's nowhere this central to it ALL.

Beaches, hip restaurants, museums, Hollywood, Universal Studios, Beverly the BEST location in all of LA!

What makes this apartment unique

Bigger than many houses (2500 sq ft) makes this space one of the most unique in LA! Huge bedrooms, hardwood floors, decorative fireplace, spectacular dining room and huge living room. The huge outdoor living room in the backyard is where I love to end the day with a glass of wine. Designated free parking for one car is one of the most popular benefits our guests request.


There is free designated parking for Unit B and C.

They are fellow guests so KNOCK on the door of the unit and they will move their care. This works wonderfully unless a guest doesn't cooperate with our rules.

Parking is free UNLESS you make it difficult.

If I am notified that you are not co-operating with our Parking Rules you will be charged $35 per day for parking.

Roomy, Comfortable, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Was planning to drive into LA to attend a wedding and was in need of accommodations to sleep at least 6. Elizabeth's place definitely fit the bill, with plenty of room for all guests to stretch out and a very convenient location (very close to some great restaurants in Korea Town, as well as downtown, USC, Natural History & Science Museums, Exposition Park Rose Garden, and the freeway entrance). The full kitchen and washer/dryer were very nice to have as well, making the stay here a better value than two rooms at the nearest Best Western. Elizabeth and her staff were very responsive, friendly, and courteous both before, during, and after our stay. Thanks again for hosting us!

Close to where we needed to be

  • 3 of 5

Eli was excellent and responsive. The apartment was old and updating didn't disguise that. It was a perfect location for us as we needed to be close to USC and LA Live for events. The parking is confusing at best. There were three different notes on how to handle the parking and we were unaware we were sharing the driveway with other tenants (we read designated parking in the driveway). We had inadvertently blocked a tenant in when we left without our car in the morning. They were very gracious and understanding but for the sake of the tenants, parking should be spelled out as to be coordinated with other tenants and contact info given. We felt horrible. Other than that, we had what we needed to enjoy our stay. Great central location and the apartment is good as long as you are realistic about your expectations.

Very nice home...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home a week ago. My cousins from Canada and Singapore, along with our spouses enjoyed "our temporary home in LA". It's proximity to everything makes LA driving bearable (still hate the traffic though). The home is warm and cozy and all the necessities of a full functioning home is provided. Eli and the house manager were quick to respond to any questions and/or requests. We also appreciated the diversity of the neighborhood. I would recommend it to anyone who'd want to experience LA in a short amount of time.
