Quiet area, but close to everything. Our daughters live in the Silverlake, Atwater Village area of Los Angeles. We can be at their front door within five minutes. The access is also good to downtown Glendale shopping and restaurants. The unit is well equipped, with all of the necessities. The unit sits behind and downhill from the main house. There are a lot of stairs from the street down to the unit. We had no problem but this may bother some. Parking is on the street. Parking was available to us during our stay. We would definitely stay here again.
