Beautiful and secluded studio in the hills of Echo Park.

The space

Our home, located above the historic Fellowship Way Trail, was originally built in the early 1900’s for famous silent film star, Tom Mix. Tucked back in the hills of Echo Park our space feels private and secluded with breathtaking views of the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, and San Gabriel Mountains. If you're renting a car there is street parking available with no restrictions.

Our small, but private studio offers a sofa bed (full bed, sleeps 2 comfortably), 2 closets, office area, and shower. No direct kitchen or laundry access, but the house is nearby local cafés and a small mini fridge is provided along with complimentary coffee & tea.

Guest access

We encourage guests to take advantage of our shared spaces like the patio deck, hammock, and garden (when in season). We recommend reading our House Manual section once booked to get a better lay of the land.

Other things to note

Guests are welcome to pick and eat from our vegetable gardens (when in season). We encourage guests to utilize our outdoor space. There is a roku to watch streaming video such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video or HBO GO. A refrigerator is located in the closet.

We do live on an undeveloped hillside so believe it not, we get some wildlife. We get occasional skunks and raccoons and have spotted coyotes too. Don't be alarmed if you spot some or you hear something outside during the evening.

Lastly, while we do not allow pets in the studio we ourselves own a cat and 2 chickens. For those highly allergic you may want to take this into consideration.

Christian and Meredith’s house was easily accessible and conveniently close to downtown LA. They were both accommodating and involved hosts and made my stay ideal. Would love to stay there again when I’m in the area!

Christian and Meredith were kind and welcoming and encouraged us to enjoy the outdoor spaces, which were lovely. Great views, cozy hammock, friendly chickens, and lots of little corners to tuck into. The room itself has a separate entrance and private (spotless) bathroom, plus the thoughtful addition of a coffee/tea/wine setup. No kitchen, but that wasn't an issue for our one-night stay. The art, record player, and interesting light fixtures all added up a unique and homey feel. The bed is standard-sized a fold-out, and while the foam mattress is as comfortable as it could be, this was the only part of our stay that wasn't excellent. It was fine for a night or two, but one person would probably be more comfortable than a couple. Overall, highly recommended and would stay again.

Response from Christian & Meredith:
Thank you for your kind words! We appreciate your honest feedback and wanted to let you know we’re currently shopping for a new sofa bed that will sleep two more comfortably. We’ll be sure to let you know once it’s been replaced and hope you come back again sometime to try it out in person! Thanks again for staying with us and safe travels.

Probably one of the best Airbnbs i've ever had the pleasure of staying in! Listing is accurate, but the view irl is amazing, photos dont really do it justice. Lots of thoughtful touches have been added to make the room extra comfy and there are loads of cool books, a vinyl player, netflix etc for staying in entertainment plus a helpful guide on the local area for when you want to head out! Would def recommend staying here.

This was my first experience through Airbnb and I'm so happy to have experienced it with Christian and Meredith. They both really made it a priority to ensure that not only did I have a marvelous time at their home but also in Los Angeles. Not only will I give them five stars but if any of my friends decide to visit Los Angeles, I will 100% recommend this location. Their cat was also cute as well so that's a plus too, hahaha. Their yard is amazing and well kept. The view from their patio is jaw dropping too. Overall rating 6/5.

We loved all the privacy at Christian and Meredith's place. It was great to come back after the night out and have a drink looking over the backyard. We made use of the record player and coffee machine so those were great to have. Short drive to all of what Echo Park and Silverlake have to offer.
