The MUSE LOFT is available to share with one to two guests who work in creative industries (artists, musicians, singers, performers, designers, producers, etc.) and who are on tour for a minimum stay of one week up to a maximum stay of eight weeks. Rental fee includes use of the fully furnished space, all utilities, WiFi with wireless printer/scanner, central air/heat and one assigned tandem parking space in our underground garage. Once approved and booked, guests can check in at 3:00 PM or another mutually agreeable time, and check out on their last day by 12 noon or another mutually agreeable time. Payment for the entire stay must be made in advance via PayPal, along with an additional deposit equivalent to 50% of the stay, which is refundable one week after the end of the stay less $150 cleaning fee and any losses or damages.

ABOUT THE SPACE: The 1,250-sq.ft. loft has an open-space format with a private bathroom (shower and tub) across from an enclosed 300-sq.ft. room that has a door lock, a queen bed with drawers, a large storage chest, and two clothing racks. Instead of the queen bed shown in the photos, there is a new twin trundle daybed (two separate beds) in what is now a semi-private sleeping area. The modern-style sectional sofa is very comfortable for one to sleep, too. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, and flatware. It is divided from the dining area with a casual bar eating area — great for chatting with guests while you cook. There are fee-based washers and dryers in the building’s basement, which is also where one free assigned underground parking space is located for guests. The loft building has 22 units in the top three floors (the bottom floor is commercial and has two restaurants and several offices), is zoned as an “Artist-in-Residence” facility, and is over 100 years old, so it has character, is historic, and can be creaky, noisier and dustier than a typical house in suburbs, but this part of our urban neighborhood is quieter than other sections, and has residents who are professional artists or other creative types who have lived in the building for ten years or longer.
ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD: The loft is located in the heart of the artsy, trendy, hip Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles … just a block or two away from popular restaurants, night spots, and shopping such as Wurstküche, The Pie Hole, Zip Izakaya Sushi, Groundwork Coffee, Umami Burger, Cerveteca DTLA, Eat.Drink.Americano, Blacktop Coffee, Woo Souvenir Shop, Alchemy Works, Angel City Brewery, Apolis, Poketo, Hammer & Spear, 12345 Clothing, Lot Stock & Barrel, and more. A few blocks further, and you’ll find Urth Caffe, Bread Lounge, Pizzanista, Little Bear Belgian Beer Cafe, Church & State Bistro, Daily Dose Cafe, Urban Radish, Zinc Cafe & Market, Blue Bottle Coffee, The Springs Vegan Restaurant & Wellness Center, Stumptown Coffee, and more. It is walking distance from the loft to Little Tokyo (just three blocks) and very close to the Little Tokyo/Arts District Metro Station for the Gold Line (goes from Pasadena to East Los Angeles, connecting through Union Station – only one stop away, which connects to all other Metro trains and buses in L.A.). The loft is within easy biking distance (about a mile or two) to Olvera Street in El Pueblo, Chinatown, and Echo Park, with Silver Lake and Hollywood just a bit further down the road. The DASH shuttle is only 50 cents, and has a stop down the street from my loft with routes all over Downtown, including the The Walt Disney Concert Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, MOCA, Japanese American National Museum, Geffen Contemporary, Staples Center, Nokia Theatre, L.A. LIVE, South Park, USC and Exposition Park plus connections to other L.A. neighborhoods.
