We have chosen to provide a new turntable with a vintage collection of records -LPs- for you to discover and enjoy. Please handle them carefully.

Getting around

If you don't want to rent a car, download the UBER or LYFT app on your phone. Inexpensive and possibly the most relaxing and easiest way to get around the city - especially if you share the cost with others! It might even be less than the cost and headache of renting a car in a city you don't know.

There is a car rental agency on our corner if you decide to use a car.

There are public buses on every corner.

Other things to note

You can relax in our back yard and play with the dogs if they go outside. (Usually the dogs are inside.)
We are available 24 hours a day to answer any question you might have.

Really top notch efficiency apt that was close to everything a visitor would like to see, but offered a quiet space to relax at the same time. All the amenities were hi quality.

This was our first Airbnb rental and it greatly exceeded our expectations. Very safe and cute neighborhood, extremely close to downtown. The home was extremely clean and perfect size for 2. Beautiful back garden. Mic and Leeah clearly take a lot of pride in their Airbnb and go above and beyond for their guests. She had a very organized booklet of info and reccomendations. We loved all of the food places she reccomended. We will definitely be back to this beautiful space

This was a beautiful, well-equipped spot. Very clean and charming, pictures don't do it justice. Leeah was very welcoming and we enjoyed looking at the guestbooks she has put together. We only stayed for one night (in town for a concert) but wished we could have stayed longer! The cleaning fee was a little steep for one night (almost as much as the charge for the accommodation itself) but this would be a better value during a longer stay. And everything was immaculately clean so I can't say it wasn't worth it. Fairly easy street parking (even though we were there on trash night - Thursday - and had to park a ways down the block). I imagine on other nights, it's no problem at all. Loved the neighborhood, nice & quiet, very close to Mid-City locations like LACMA and La Brea Tar Pits. We hope to stay with Mic & Leeah again in the future. Best Airbnb we've been to so far!

I stayed here while attending a film program in the city. Location is fabulous. There is easy access to any point in the city, yet, this place is the epitome of tranquillity. The outdoor garden is so peaceful. The apartment is super clean, and looks as if its been professionally decorated. It includes; towels, toiletries, a hair dryer, a fully equipped kitchen, a large closet, and a large comfortable bed. The wifi connection is strong and they even have a great collection of records which they generously share with their guests. I had classmates over to work on projects and that was not a problem. They did my laundry. Communication with hosts was great! They answered me immediately from my booking request though the time I left. Very nice people - no wonder they are super hosts!!!

Excellent communication and instructions. The unit is terrific: clean, comfortable, peaceful, well-appointed. Great bed, easy parking, strong wifi. Loved the turntable and record collection! My only regret was that my stay was so short. I look forward to visiting again.

Mic and Leeah's Airbnb was a great delight! The private airbnb is behind their home and is equipped with everything you need for a nice getaway with a friend or partner. Highlights: record player with a great collection of music, private entrance to the Airbnb through the backyard, cozy decor and clean amenities, easy parking, central location to explore all parts of LA from downtown to Venice beach, timely responses from host. You can tell Mic & Leeah are veterans on Airbnb and they will set up expectations from you before your stay so you know how you can follow house rules. I would stay again next time I'm in LA!

Mic & Leeah User ProfileMic & Leeah is a superhost.

We are in our 8th year of hosting guests and we love it. We enjoy traveling, cycling, music, theater, literature, dance, cooking, taking our doggies for walks at the beach and in the hills and much more!
We were born in Los Angeles and are happy to give you suggestions of how and where to go to get to know this enormous place.
We travel a lot so we know how important it is to have a clean, comfortable, safe & central place to stay - a home away from home.
Our daughter is also here to greet you. She studies and works so she isn't home very much. Our two little dogs will be very happy to meet you too.
