My boyfriend and I stayed in this Silver Lake studio apartment for 6 nights while we traveled around the greater L.A. area on vacation. This was our first time using VRBO, so we were a little bit nervous about the whole experience, including the financial transactions and our safety. We honestly couldn't have had a more perfect first experience!! Walter was great to deal with and answered all of our questions with great patience -- he really went above and beyond!! The studio apartment was just as the listing photos made it appear -- or maybe even better!! For a studio apartment, it was a decent size and we didn't feel like we were living right on top of one another for the week. We rented a car for a stay, and while sometimes there was a lot of parking on the streets in the evenings when we returned from a long day of sightseeing, we never did not get a parking spot within feet of the apartment. The flowers around the property are absolutely gorgeous, the studio has all of the little things you need (wine opener, appliances). We had never been to a Trader Joe's before (they don't exist in Canada), but the great Trader Joe's shampoo & conditioner provided by the owner was amazing (we had to go out and buy some to take home with us!) There are a few little shops and cafes in a 5-10 minute walking distance, and the area feels very residential (not touristy) and it feels very safe. The apartment is in a great location for people visiting on holidays as well; close to the highway and about 10 minutes of highway driving to get downtown, and in the other direction, about 10 minutes of highway driving to get to Hollywood. We easily navigated our way around because this place is easy to get in and out of (with the help of the GPS of course). Dodger stadium isn't far either!! The apartment is extremely well maintained and it was spotless when we arrived. We were also greeted by Walter's friendly cat on several occasions -- too cute! The apartment was quiet, the a/c and the water pressure were great. I can't think of a single constructive thing to say about the property! It was perfect from beginning to end! We will stay here again if we ever get the chance; and I highly recommend that you do too!
