CREATIVE AND FUN
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.

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!
We brought our 2.5-year old son and this home met all the requirements: front and back enclosed space to play, multiple sleeping options, laundry facilities, easy parking, and a quiet neighborhood. The home was very comfortable, well maintained, and clean. We had everything we needed. We were able to cook inside and grill out. We spent a lot of time at the house and greatly appreciated the private outside space. Our hosts checked in with us (via HomeAway email) frequently and even fixed a plumbing issue right away. The only downside is that we have AT&T service on our phones and could not make calls at the house - but that is an L.A. thing, certainly not the fault of the homeowners. We would stay here again and recommend it without hesitation. My son was calling it his "other house."
We were satisfied overall with our 2 month stay. However the kitchen was not as completely equipped as expected (pots old, not enough matching tops). The shower was difficult to use and did get adjusted but was on the way to stiffening up again.Also there was no rug in the living room or mats by the beds.If we had asked for more attention I think we would have gotten it because whenever we called we got quick response. It was unusually cold and rainy while we were there and the heat was excellent.We spent most of our time at our daughter's up the hill but the heat in the morning and evening was welcomed.
The biggest drawback however is the inconsistent phone/text message reception due to being in the valley between two hills I suspect.It may be because we have Sprint and evidently L A is Verizon territory.
Surprisingly, this property was more charming and cozy in person than it appeared in the pictures. The interior decorating is wonderful and very soothing, while the size of the space is perfect for 3-4 people. The fairly private backyard is just a bonus. Elena was also extremely responsive to emails and very helpful in coordinating our arrival details. I'd highly recommend staying here.
Lovely home and setting with most amenities provided. Comfortable furnishings. Enjoyed morning coffee on front porch at sunrise, wine in backyard at sunset. Easy access to many great eateries and the sights of downtown LA. On street parking tight but definitely available. Elena is most definitely a responsive and attentive host.
We booked in for 7 nights for a week of Baseball & NFL. The house was exactly as described and photographed, which was a great comfort. The house was well appointed, need and tidy, and had everything we needed throughout the whole place. Two things I really appreciate when travelling are comfortable beds and good showers, and this place delivered. The air-con worked well and the ceiling fans were a great bonus. The seclusion and privacy was awesome. This was my first booking through VRBO and it was an excellent experience. Elena and Dave were great hosts, providing everything we needed while we were there. Their communication with us leading up to and during the stay was fantastic. The location was great - coffee shop / wine bar over the road and shops just down the road. A number of people we spoke to in the lead up to leaving Australia questioned our choice of location, "Why Echo Park ?" they would ask as they raised concerns about safety in area. We saw and experienced nothing of concern at all. I stayed with my daughter, and we both felt totally safe, comfortable and at home and would recommend this place to anyone. We had a car, which made things a bit easier in getting around and we had no trouble parking on the street. The house is close, and cheap by Uber, to travel to Dodger stadium. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it without hesitation.
