We're 25 year local residents and 10 year vacation rental cottage hosts (silverlakecottagela at communications) with art, film, music and academic backgrounds. Bev's a renowned 'outside artist' (bevbaz at communications) and lover of local history and Silver Lake/ Hollywood lore. Darrell's an English/Film professor, poet and WGA writer of numerous screenplays (darrellcosta at communications).

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1987

When we moved in 25 years ago, we were considered 'urban pioneers' to the local realtors. In time, the beauty of the urban landscape, old Hollywood haunts and red-diaper baby bastion with its music and art pulsing in this alternative to the west side's beachy blandness made being parents to our only son, Devan, a welcome challenge. Now, after riots and fires and searing garage bands making dogs howl, and with the taming of the local gangs, a whole new unique music-health-art-technological minded generation has refined Silver Lake's storied charm.

Beautiful vegetation including divergent tree species and the famous Mexican palms that make LA's trademark. The abundantly interesting and creative younger families moving in and taking pride. The diverse food culture for the carnivore and vegan alike, abounding with great local breweries, pubs and coffee hangouts. We're luckily situated near but far away enough from the complex downtown freeway system which can take you north to the mountains, west to the beach and east to Pasadena and beyond.

Great long weekend in LA!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I just came home from this adorable cottage in Silverlake, where we enjoyed walking our dog all over the neighborhood, watching the World Cup semi-finals at Good Microbrew & Grill, and a short drive into downtown LA to tour Walt Disney Hall. While I never managed to meet Darrell, he was always pleasant and made everything easy. While I also live in Southern California, I haven't spent much time in LA - I would LOVE to stay here again and explore more, as it's so centrally located, and the cottage itself is so comfortable.

Perfect Holiday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Darrell for allowing me to stay at this lovely cottage. Sliverlake Garden Cottage Deluxe was the perfect place for me to stay on my holiday getaway. The cottage was clean and all the modern amenities that one would expect were there. It was cozy. You could tell the love that you put into upgrading the cottage. It has its own private entrance, so you are not disturbing people in the upper house if you are coming and going at different times of the day. It is a great place to relax after a day of exploring before heading out to visit the local charm of Silverlake and Los Feliz. Darrell, the owner was great. He answered all of my questions promptly, no matter how silly, since this was my first time vacationing this way. He gave me excellent tips on the area. Parking is a little tricky. You have to park on the street, not directly by the cottage (you can park there briefly to unload your car), but Darrell warned me about this ahead of time and I was always able to find parking nearby. If you want to stay in the LA area but hotel prices may not be in your budget or you prefer the home away from home feel, this is the way to go.

I had not been to the Silverlake community, even though I had been to LA several times, but was wonderfully impressed with its proximity to West Hollywood, Los Feliz and other key LA locales. The 101 is close by for easy access, but if you are into the scenic routes and like exploring the area as I am, take Sunset Blvd. all the way from Silverlake to Malibu...there are many hidden gems along the way! The cottage is close to the Silverlake Reservoir, which is great place to run before you start your day. There are great neighborhood restaurants and wine bars close by. I would definitely recommend this area to anyone looking for an eclectic community with great local charm....reminded me a lot of Austin, Texas. I will definitely keep this place on my radar for future visits and would recommend it to anyone who asked.

wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our family just stayed in this wonderful cottage. Thank you for a clean and relaxing space. Parking was easy in neighborhood, as well as access. Patio is lovely, private and quiet. Neighborhood has ample shopping and food available- enjoyed noodles, sushi, tiramisu, pizza, and chicken. Very comfortable for family of four, and able to watch local news and weather- a plus. WIFI available helped us plan more adventures while on trip. Accurate photos and very well-maintained. Owner very helpful with questions. Yes, would definitely come back and recommend to others. Thanks.

FEELS JUST LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
I spent the summer of 2012 in Los Angeles, partially working, partially hanging out in Darrel and Bev's backyard. Greeted by Sheba - Darrel and Bev's very calm and friendly dog - everyday, it has been very easy to adapt to this new environment. Soon, the Silverlake cottage felt just like home. Uniquely warm, the vibe in this adorable cottage is perfect. The bed is comfortable and the place is super clean. Darrel and Bev supplied everything I needed, from travel advises to neighborhood's secrets; I was rapidly able to immerse myself in this new Los Angeles experience.

Being one of the most interesting places I've experienced so far, Los Angeles holds a little gem on the East side: Silverlake. If you have only limited access to a car, it is one of the special neighborhoods where you can actually travel on foot. Trading the office for local coffee shops, the dining room for one of the many restaurants, you can walk your way in and out of bars, between Sunset and Hyperion.

I would recommend it for everyone, any age / any lifestyle.

All together fantastic

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was exquisite, and warm. I was there for 3 months on my own in a new country that i didnt know and was nervous to live on my own. Just graduated university. Darrell and Bev were so welcoming and understanding and took extra time out of their lives to make sure that I was comfortable in my surroundings. It had everything that I needed and the location was perfect for me, very central. If i ever go back to California, Silverlake is where I would stay and with this amazing family. They really made my experience one to remember and I am so grateful to them. They are a lovely family not to mention their dog who is so friendly and loving. I would absolutely reccomend this place!

This place is a HAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
I loved my stay at the SilverLake Deluxe Garden Cottage! The cottage itself is nearly perfect, a huge bathroom with a luxurious spacey shower and an awesome Loft Bed, not to mention the cozy day bed underneath. Its great at night for watching tv/movies. Great sound system and nice HD TV. The kitchen is easy access and equipped with all you need. Its really just a great cozy spot with a quiet patio to relax and sunbathe at. The location is really cool, felt east coasty to me which is a plus when visiting Los Angeles. Its between all the major spots and has real quick access to freeways without hearing them. Its walking distance from Sunset and tons of great eateries and shops. I honestly can't rave enough about this place! Darrell is as gracious a host as can be and Sheba (the dog) provides great company! I'll definitely be back....
Mike Sessions.
