Silver Lake contains some of the most famous modernist architecture in North America. Known as the Greenwich Village of the west, Silver Lake offers unique boutiques and restaurants, a beautiful reservoir (with running path and park), and a Tuesday and Saturday farmers market. It is the center of the indie rock scene of LA and is an eclectic neighborhood attracting creative people, artists, musicians, and environmentally conscious businesses.

In 2013, CNNmoney named Silverlake 'LA's best neighborhood' and said 'this area has blossomed in recent years, becoming a haven for families as well as the hipsters who first popularized it. The stretch of Sunset Boulevard that runs through Silver Lake is packed with shops and hotspots, defying the 'no walking in L.A.' cliché.'

We have lived in Silverlake for more than 11 years and love the area. We work in the film and graphic design industries and like to apply our design aesthetic to our rental properties. We manage several luxury rentals in the area and live nearby, so we are here to ensure you have a memorable stay.

Dan purchased this house in 2005

We love its central location and its proximity to most LA attractions. It's also a hip but safe and family-friendly neighborhood (voted trendiest neighborhood in LA by WSJ for 2012 and best LA neighborhood in 2013 by CNNmoney). This house is unique with its downtown views and separate artists studio that can be used as an office. It is so much more comfortable staying here than in a hotel room!

STYLISH AND COOL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a 5 day stay here in mid June. We couldn't have been happier with the updated and stylish house. It has A/C, modern furnishings and amazing linens and beds. Our two daughters loved the fun room with the twin beds. We were able to walk to coffee and restaurants and soak in the hipster vibe of the neighborhood. The house provided a welcoming home base while we explored LA and was located close to the major freeways. Lastly, it was a real pleasure dealing with Dan who was super responsive, easygoing and nice. We hope to be back soon!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY WITH YOUNG KIDS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here over Thanskgiving weekend with our 13 month old and almost 3 year old daughters. The house was perfect for us. The girls had lots of space to crawl and run around. The layout of the house allowed them to be in a separate bedroom without being on top of us but close enough that we could hear what was going on. They both loved the kids desk and chairs in the bedroom. An extra bonus for them was a mini air hockey table and a huge bad of legos/random toys.

The house was fabulously equipped with everything we needed. The beds were super comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with basic ingredients (butter, sugar, etc) and more which made cooking easier. I don't think there was an appliance or utensil missing.

The location is great, with easy access to the freeway. We got to and from LAX, Disneyland, amd Studio City with no problems. There is a great playground and merry-go-round in nearby Griffith Park. With the great weather, we easily walked down to Sunset Blvd to eat.

The owners were proactive on checking that we were all set and incredibly responsive to all questions before, during, and after our stay.

We definitely hope to return!

WE HOPE TO COME BACK...

  • 5 of 5
Our family of three felt staying at a LA home, not a rented house. You can trust the pictures, the decoration has these items that make a house warm and lively, unlike hotels. It has all appliances we needed and more. We had several breakfasts in the backyard: the house and table / chairs are painted in white, lovely bue sky, a couple palm trees.. we felt being by the beach. The sight over LA from the front windows are great in the evening. Silver Lake is a fine pick, with quick access to most locations for discovering LA. You do need a car, but this is LA standard. The welcome book has many useful information to make one's stay easy and the owner is very responsive. "We hope to come back" was our spontaneous feedback to him.

GREAT PLACE FOR EXPLORING LAS VEGAS

  • 4 of 5
Our family (two adults and two kids, 12 and 14, from Sweden) stayed at Dan's and Sophia’s house for a week in the end of July. We highly enjoyed our stay and Casa Micheltorena is very well suited for exploring Las Vegas and the surroundings by car, which was our purpose. After a hectic day at the beach, Universal Studios, Disneyland or in a shopping mall, it was wonderful to get back to the quite neighborhood at Micheltorena Street and to relax and enjoy a self-made dinner at the house. The kitchen, just as the rest of the house, is very well equipped with everything one may need for those kind of activates. The generous grill in the backyard also contributes to enjoy all possible ingredients that one may find in the well-stocked Vons grocery store some five minutes drive from the house. The gargage further has space enough for the enormus car that we had rented.

The houses, garden and equipment are well reflected in the listing and on the photos, even though the living room and the studio was more spacious than what we had expected. The beds are comfortable and spotlessly clean linen and towels are provided. A well functioning Wi-Fi facilitates the planning of all activities to attend and all routes to be traveled.

Even though we didn't get the opportunity to meet Dan or Sophia, they were very welcoming and helpful during the phone and Email contacts we hade before our arrival and during our stay. Dan replied lightening fast to the few questions we had during our stay. Additionally the check-in and check-out procedures are very easy and quick. The deposit of 500 $ was refunded the day after we checked-out.

We highly recommend Casa Micheltorena to anyone who is looking for a LA house situated i a quiet neighborhood and close to the central highways.

OUR STAY AT THE MITCHELTORENA HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this silver lake property was a great experience, we were centrally located to all of our family activity's, and a very quite neighborhood. The home has plenty of room, and has a great view of the city, especially at night. We also found the owners very helpful, and very responsive to all of our needs during our stay. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Los Angeles, can't wait to come back.

IDYLLIC PLACE TO SPEND AN LA WINTER!

  • 5 of 5
My husband had to be in LA on business for three months so we decided to rent Daniel and Sophia's beautiful house from January to March (we're from London, UK). We couldn't fault a thing: the house itself is very spacious, with lots of room for our 18 month old to run around; furniture is comfortable; everything you could ever need is provided in the kitchen and if it isn't, the owners are open to purchasing it for you (this applies to the house in general: we were impressed by Dan's readiness to buy us a heater for cold winter nights in January). The artists's studio in the back yard is great to use as an office or as an extra self-contained bedroom for guests. The steeply sloping garden/back yard itself is large and has amazing views of the Hollywood sign, plus delightful orange and lemon trees (views from the front of the property of downtown are also impressive). The neighbourhood is peaceful and quiet, and yet it's just a short walk down to West Sunset Boulevard with lots of cool little shops, cafes and restaurants. There's also a playground within walking distance for kids. We are hoping to return next year, which just goes to show how much we liked it!
