Our airy and modern one-bedroom guest unit is located in the Silver Lake hills of Los Angeles. It is a hillside garden apartment, with our owner-occupied house above. (Because of the hillside, stairs are required to access the unit.)
The unit offers reserved, off-street parking for our guests' car and a separate entrance for total privacy. It has been renovated floor to ceiling and features a living room, compact kitchen, bedroom, and full bath, as well as beautiful cork and marmoleum flooring and roman shades with black-out linings. The furnishings are mid-century with a modern touch.
Perfect for two, and cozy for four, the location is ideal for a stay in Los Angeles. The Silver Lake reservoir, Los Feliz, Dodger stadium, Hollywood, Universal Studios, and downtown are minutes away, as is Griffith Park, with its trails, famous observatory, golf course, zoo, museums, train rides, and playgrounds. A great hotel alternative to anyone coming to Los Angeles for business or pleasure.
Inside the apartment:
THE KITCHEN includes a gas range, sink, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster oven, as well as ample cooking equipment, dishes, glasses, cutlery and even cookbooks for inspiration.
THE LIVING ROOM includes a full-sized comfort sleeper pull-out couch, easy chair, flat-screen television (with DirecTV, Roku Box, DVD player, and streaming Netflix), desk area (with plenty of Los Angeles visitors' guides), and a fold-out dining table that holds dinner for three. Also available for our guests are an array of books, games, CD player and IPod dock. High-speed WIFI is included.
THE BEDROOM features a queen bed with organic linens, sizable closet with full-length mirror, dresser, vintage vanity, and generous library of books. It is large-enough to accommodate a pack-n-play or crib as well.
THE BATH features luxurious 800-gram organic towels, full tub, sink, and toilet.
Just outside the apartment’s door is a sizable slate patio decorated with flowering plants and citrus trees. Lounge chairs, a cafe set, outdoor heat lamp, and a gas grill is available for your use. Our shared garden and 600-square foot deck is just beyond, with chaise longues and a table with seating for 8. The view is trees and hillsides, with downtown's skyline in the distance and city lights at night.
A grocery, pharmacy, banks, and a number of restaurants and shops are all in walking distance, as is the Silver Lake reservoir. We do recommend a car, and with it, you’ll have easy access to the 2, 5, 134 and 101 freeways.
We live above, and are typically around to provide directions, restaurant and attraction suggestions, and anything else we can help with. Parents: we are happy to provide a portable crib, high chair, and we can offer advice on local attractions resources for parents and children, including a referral for bonded, professional babysitters.

Nestled in the hills outside of downtown, Silver Lake is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles. It's quirky, artsy, and hip, in a great location whether you're an urban explorer or like the quieter side of things. Our house was built in 1908, but the apartment was just renovated top to bottom, so it offers both charm and modern convenience!
David and Heather were warm, welcoming hosts! The guest house is a private, well-situated apartment space on their property - perfect for those looking for a home-base in a cool neighborhood of LA. The house is well-appointed with everything you would need or have staying in a hotel. A great experience, would definitely recommend!
We- my wife and I- spent a week in this ground level suite in a great part of LA. It's comfortable and homey; in a quiet location up on one of the many hills of this area. Has everything one needs for an extended stay. The front door opens onto a lovely patio- quite private feeling, perfect for outdoor living with lounge chairs, dining table and a good BBQ for cooking al fresco meals.
The apartment made a great base for exploring LA, and we have no hesitation in recommending it.

David was very responsive to my questions and inquiries. We met him upon arrival and he was helpful but not intrusive. The apartment is exactly as pictured, very cute and comfortable and clean. Wonderful outdoor space, wish we could have enjoyed it more but we were only there for 2 nights and on the go during the day. We stayed there as a couple so plenty of room for us. I definitely consider staying here again.
This is a very lovely property with nice hosts. There's a nice walk with some staircases down to the resovior park. The views from the hill are quite nice and at the end of the street there's a great nighttime view of downtown. It is a great property but if you are renting a car be sure to rent a small one since the streets are narrow. But that's just general advice anyway for LA since parking is an issue everywhere in the city.
This was our first time visiting L.A. with our two young children (ages 4 and 6) and we were thrilled with the accommodations and indoor/outdoor space. We didn't want to stay in a hotel so we decided to give David and Heather's place a try, and we are so glad we did! Having the adjacent patio and deck area to relax and play on was an added bonus. It was quiet, peaceful, and cozy. Perfect for our family! We would definitely recommend this rental and the owners are great. Thanks so much!
The property is just as nice and beautiful as it looks on the pictures. It was clean, well-equipped and perfect for a stay in LA with young children. Its location could not have been better. The owners were very friendly and responsive. They had great recommendations about the neighborhood and LA.
We very much enjoyed our stay in this apartment and highly recommend it.
This is the second time we have stayed here and it's wonderful. Owners very accommodating. Close to everything. You have your own parking spot which is key in this area. Gas grill available with a really nice deck with nice ambiance. Very friendly. Would recommend this property to everyone. Very clean and everything you need is there if you want to cook, etc. thank you David and Heather for another nice visit. You're great !!
The Silver Lake area of Los Angeles sits between downtown and Hollywood, near Los Feliz and Echo Park. Silver Lake is known for its modernist residential architecture (Neutra, Schindler, and Lautner houses are common sights), its artistic denizens, and the reservoir for which it is named.
It is one of Los Angeles' hillside neighborhoods, which offer great hiking. shopping, and people watching opportunities.
Here's what Forbes Magazine said about Silver Lake, when it recently named it 'America's Best Hipster Neighborhood' : 'Nestled between Echo Park and Los Feliz, the trendy community boasts some of the nation's most lauded food trucks and farmers markets, a multicultural blend of residents with eclectic professions, and a booming arts scene. Even the buildings exude an avant garde aesthetic a hipster could love: Silver Lake is home to some of the most celebrated modernist architecture in the country, including Richard Neutra's VDL Research House and John Lautner's Silvertop.'
