Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Echo Park - Beautiful Echo Park Craftsman

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, 1 full bath connected to the master bedroom and 1/2 bath located in the kitchen. 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 easily accessible through the back 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.

***** 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. My wife and I run this VRBO. We live close by, and you'll receive prompt, friendly attention during your stay.

Matthew Pope purchased this house in 2004

Why Matthew Pope chose Los Angeles area

This property belongs to my wife and I. I personally renovated this craftsman and tried to maintain its original character and details. We've lived in Echo Park for 14 years, we love this neighborhood and we know it well.

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 this city pretty well 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.

Relaxing and peaceful getaway in the middle of the city

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable home was the perfect setting for our group. We were able to enjoy the various sights in LA from this very convenient location. But once there we were in a beautiful home in a quiet and charming neighborhood that seemed far away from the bustle of the city. Matt assured that we had all that we needed and was a gracious host. Thank you for a terrific visit!

Great home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Convenient to Echo Park restaurants and shops. Stylishly updated craftsman bungalow. Off street parking was appreciated. Looked just like the photos. We were very happy and would return. Owner left some fresh snacks in the fridge to help us settle in without needing to go to the market right away.

Fantastic LA home

  • 5 of 5

Ideal home for our family of 5 to explore LA during our 5 night stay. Beautifully renovated house with plenty of room plus all the practical amenities needed for a wonderfully comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable vacation. Matthew dropped by once we had arrived to check we had everything and to make us aware of local cafes/restaurants. Echo Park is a perfect location from which to explore LA and has a great cafe (Fix) within walking distance for emergency coffee runs! Great house/great host would recommend to all!

Beautiful Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great four day vacation in Los Angeles with our four children. The owner Matthew was kind enough to come and check in with us at the beginning of our stay. He gave us wonderful recommendations for getting around town and great places to eat. We spent the days exploring the city and arrived back to the home late in the evening to relax and sleep in comfy beds. We loved that there was a cafe within close walking distance where we could sit and enjoy coffee and breakfast in the morning before heading out. We went to Universal Studios, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Venice and Santa Monica - all of these places were very easy to get to from the home. We were charmed by the Echo Park neighborhood and we look forward to returning for another visit!
