About the property

Location Location Location - Great Location!! New addition built in 2013.

Forbes ranked Silver Lake as the Best Hipster Neighborhood in America - 2014. Forbes based the rankings on walkability, coffee shops, food trucks, farmers markets, the selection of locally owned bars and restaurants.

Located between downtown and Hollywood in the heart of Sunset Junction in Silver Lake. 15 min walk to metro. Many bars, restaurants and stores are steps from this studio apartment. Full kitchen, bath, queen bed. High speed internet (Wi-fi) and cable included. No smoking in building and no butts left outside. Any smoking in unit is grounds for loss of damage deposit.

The neighborhood has both upscale trendy bars and restaurants but also has the local hole in the wall too. Many vegan choices as well as steakhouses.

You can walk to the famous Egyptian themed Vista movie theatre (where the manager dresses up as characters from whatever feature is playing). If you are hungry you have many choices of cute cafes or world class restaurants. If you are your own chef the grocery store, yummy and lots of markets are walking distance as well. The farmers market is a couple blocks away and is on Saturday mornings and Tuesday nights.

A 15 min walk to the metro can take you to Hollywood, the Valley, downtown or south to LongBeach. There is also a bus line 1/2 block away.

You can stroll among the hillside neighborhoods and get views of Griffith Park, The Observatory (which is beautifully lit up at night) and the famous Hollywood sign.

The unit is furnished with a queen size murphy bed and a couch with a hide-a-bed inside. Fully stocked kitchen. 40 inch TV with basic cable and Netflix account attached. High Speed internet (wi-fi). The unit has hardwood floors, heat, AC, ceiling fan and stainless steel oven, dishwasher, microwave. Fully remodeled in 2013.

The city of Los Angeles requires that I add a 14% tax to any guests that stay less then 30 days. I can either manually add this tax prior to you booking or collect it at check in. Again, this is only if you stay LESS then 30 days. Anyone over 30 days is not required to pay tax.

My selected payout method is a direct transfer (eCheck) since there is no fee associated with the bank transfer. If you choose to pay with a credit card the credit card transaction fee will be taken from your damage deposit. If you let me know you will be using a credit card ahead of time I can add the 2.5% to the booking fee. It will show up as a tax.

Maximum occupancy is 2.

1 street permit parking pass will be available for your use during your stay. $75 will be deducted from your damage deposit if you do not return the pass.

About Rocky

I'm origionally from the midwest and have a love of nature and animals. I've lived in Los Angeles for 15 years and currently work behind the scenes in TV / Film production.

I do have 20 reviews on another short term rental site that starts with Air ... if you'd like to see those reviews let me know and I will send you the reviews as an attachment. I'm 5 stars on that site too!

Rocky purchased this studio in 2013

Why Rocky chose Silver Lake

Location location location! It's an amazing neighborhood with so many things walking distance. Plus, it's in the middle of the city so whether you want to go downtown, Koreatown, Chinatown, Hollywood, Glendale (to the big mall) or the beach you are in the right spot.

Griffith park is a 5 min drive and there is horseback riding, golfing and nature trails in the park. Also, the zoo is right there too!

What makes this studio unique

The city of Los Angeles requires that I add a 14% tax to any guests that stay less then 30 days. I can either manually add this tax prior to you booking or collect it at check in. Again, this is only if you stay LESS then 30 days. Anyone over 30 days is not required to pay tax.

Pets are welcome but there $15 per night pet fee. For monthly renters that fee drops to $10 a night.

Note: If you leave your dog unattended in the unit and it continually barks I will contact you and you will no longer be allowed to leave your dog unattended. I need to be respectful of other people in the building. If you leave your dog a second time (and it barks) you agree to vacate the premises immediately and without any refund of your remaining days booked.

Pets also have a refundable $500 damage deposit and a non-refundable pet cleaning fee of $100 (since I get the mattress steam cleaned after every pet visit).

Great Property, Awesome Location, Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as it is pictured. It's maintained beautifully - spotless and organized. The owner of this property is extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Staying here has made a transitional move super easy and seamless. I'd highly recommend staying here.

Bonus - It's close to public transportation - only a 20 min bus ride to Union Station (DTLA).

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

The place is incredibly beautiful from one end to the other. Everything is clean and in wonderful condition. The owner not only takes the best care of the place, but she also takes great care of you! I rented from her for 3-1/2 months. As soon as I arrived, she helped me carry my belongings inside. One evening the power on our block went out, so she came around and gave all of us flashlights, candles, and matches. She would check in periodically to make sure that everything was going alright and if I needed anything.

Excellent place! The owner was very accomodating and hospitable. She had steam cleaned upholstery and used vinegar to clean surfaces prior to our arrival when I told her my friend had pet allergies. The owner was also very helpful and friendly on the day of arrival. The place was in pristine condition. Excellent appliances and furniture was in great condition. The entire place looked like it came out of a catalogue. The owner has amazing attention to detail and cleanliness.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $75
Pet Fee $25

No smoking in unit.

Due to LA City taxes, all guests staying LESS than 30 days must pay a 14% transient occupancy tax (another word for a hotel room tax) to the city upon or before check in. This is the same tax you pay in LA hotels. If you are staying over 30 days I will remove this tax when I accept your booking.
