Excellent Stay!!!
We enjoyed our time in our apartment immensely. The herb garden, private patio & late afternoon barbeques created a sense of home we tried to recreate here, after we left.

"Great value, nice neighborhood"
Our family of 4 stayed at The Sage with a friend. We really liked the Echo Park neighborhood. I could run in Elysian Park and the Fix cafe for morning coffee or afternoon gelatto was right on the corner. We could walk to a market a few blocks away. Echo Park ave has a funky artist vibe to it. It was easy to cut over to Glendale Blvd and the Silver Lake area, and easy to get on the 101 and 5 hwys.
Michelle was very responsive in the booking process as well as during our stay. We enjoyed the occasional visit of Boo the cat.
After extended periods of time in our car, stuck in la traffic, it was nice to return to a quiet residential area where we had everything we needed.

"Great location, comfortable apt, owner very knowledgeable about "
My husband and I stayed for a month at Baxter 5. The one bedroom apt was cozy and had all the amenities. The location is a few minutes from the 5, 101 and 2 freeways. Very convenient for getting to many attractions. Michelle, the owner very sweet. She really cared that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. She is a LA native and not only knew all the regular attractions, but lots of cool local places to go. We felt very much at home and are looking forward to going back sometime. We highly recommend the Baxter Thanks for everything, Michelle.

"Great Experience at Baxter 5!!!"
I needed a place fast, and I was accomodated in a wonderful apartment with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and a parking space. All the services were great, including cable TV, phone, Internet access, and a responsive management team, who went out of their way to make my stay a quality experience. I recommend Baxter 5 unequivocally. Terry Burka

"Fantastic surprise"
We needed a great living space for a co-worker based in New york who had to be local for 5-6 weeks. After a wide review of options, Baxter 5 bested all other considerations. Near to us (East Side), not a hotel but an apartment, hip spots within walking distance, pristine amenities � What's not to like? The experience was perfect and the ongoing attention made us feel well cared for. 1st choice for any future needs! — Chris Lowery, Chase Design Group

Excellent Stay!!!
My boyfriend and I were thrust out of our apartment due to a flood in the building a few months ago. We knew of baxter 5 b/c we had family stay for the weekend there and they had a pleasant time. We were not on vacation, we were stressed and had a couple pets. Michelle of Baxter 5 welcomed us and made us feel at home, stopping at nothing to make our stay comfortable and feel like home. We had fun discovering the area, walking to Elysian Park (paradise!) and the nearby coffee shop. Plus with kitchens, we didn't have to eat out all the time and went to nearby Silverlake Wine to pick up wine and fresh pasta. We could have easily signed a lease to stay for the next year. It was a delightful experience during an upsetting time. Thank you Michelle at Baxter 5!!

Excellent Stay!!!
Thanks for a lovely stay. A shame you don't rent it out long term unfurnished. With the open feel and the views. This apartment set the bar really high. It was impossible to find anything that compares.

"Greatest Hidden Location"
1549 Baxter is a very well managed and welcoming home from home in LA. Michelle and Kathleen do a great job maintaining the place and dealing with everyday concerns. Above all, I love the location. Up in the canyon above Echo Park, it is one of LA's greatest hidden locations: beautiful walks, nice neighbors, great little cafes and shops, and close to Hollywood and Downtown.

Our apartment at Baxter 5 directly contributed to the success of our business venture in Los Angeles. The convenient location, wonderful kitchen and generous living area meant that our team could develop strong bonds with our clients in an informal and unpressured setting.

Michelle rented a wonderful vacation appartment to us. She was simply great! Very fast (we needed it within a day), replied always immediately, and helped us with all the small things to make us feel right at home. Highly recommended!

I enjoyed my stay at Baxter5 last month and would surely again live the good life there with all the perks and surrounding beauty in the hills of Echo Park, LA and vicinity, California. I photographed my days and captured brilliant shots of nature and life so far away from Midwest society that I am enthusiastically looking forward to my return. Thank you, Michelle, for your engaging hospitality. Within moments of arrival, I had the pleasure of fresh rosemary and lavender brought into my luxurious apartment to enjoy from the gardens. Michelle's operation expertise, personal high integrity and expanded housing and gardening creativity to detail has given me memories to re-experience again. I felt I was in a true home away from home.

I have worked with Michelle in a few different ways. I have consulted with Michelle about business ideas since we are in the same business of Vacation Rentals. I have stayed at Michelle's units when I was moving between apartments. Her renovations in her units are extremely creative and she is also a wonderful decorator. Michelle is also a college who has become a friend because she has immense integrity. Michelle generously gives me ideas which include marketing and the list goes on and on which is not typical for a competitor in the same business to do. Michelle is a very smart woman who gets the job done RIGHT!

I stayed at the Baxter 5 with a friend who was visiting the US for the very first time from Italy! He and I both loved it! It was clean, spacious, and the location was great; really close to the 5 fwy, so it was accessible to other parts of Los Angeles pretty easily. Michelle was a delight to work with and I would recommend her and Baxter 5 to anyone looking for an affordable vacation rental in a hip, up and coming part of LA.

To anyone thinking of being a guest at Baxter 5, I sincerely recommend it. I stayed for several days and had a great experience. I expected less since Baxter 5 was not a brand hotel chain. Indeed, I received great service, proper explanations, a very nice and spacious apartment, and Michelle Lindsey went out of her way to accommodate my every need. Feel free to contact me on Linkedin for questions if you are considering a stay. Terry Burka

Definitely missing LA, and Echo Park in particular - thanks for a great stay.

— Chris, Montreal, Canada

The Baxter 5 apartment made the living arrangements the only part of our LA project that I DIDN'T have to worry about. Friendly neighbors, flexible and responsive staffing made my stay there extremely pleasant. Should I have to return to LA again this is where I would stay.
