USC Graduation 2015

May 20, 2015

My husband and I rented this property because we were going to his graduation at USC. This was a great location for us. We did not want to stay directly in the city of Los Angeles but we wanted to stay close. Silverlake is a nice area and about 9 miles (15-20 min) from Los Angeles. The rental property is beautiful and it is exactly like the pictures. There is a huge back porch with just a nice homey feeling. They have a security system and strong metal doors on the outside so safety is not issue. The property is directly below the owner and when we were leaving she asked if there were any things that she could improve on for future guests. And I think that was a very nice gesture. My husband is a wounded warrior and I am active duty; they gave us a discount for our service. This is place is definitely not for the partying crowd; But it was perfect for my husband and I. The only negative thing that I have to mention is that the parking is almost non-existent. Finding a decent parking spot is by chance alone. A couple of times we had to park two blocks away, and walk up-and-down two or three steep hills in order to get from the car to the apartment.

Owner's reply:

Sorry about the tight parking. Sometimes it gets that way if neighbors have guests with cars over.

Thank you for being our guest, and for the kind words.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We couldn't have found a better place for my fiance's parents to stay while they were in town visiting! The place is absolutely adorable, easy to find, and very comfortable. As hosts, David and Judith were very sweet and attentive. We will definitely have friends or family stay here again!

- E.G. (Los Angeles, CA, USA) - April, 2016

Been in Silver Lake before and it was as great as I remembered. Davids house is very much recommended. Great location, nice food around the corner and fantastic balcony/patio to sit in the sun.

- E.B. (Amsterdam, Netherlands) - April, 2016

Everything is good. Thanks so much for hosting us. Your place is really nice.

- Q.C. (Shanghai, China) - April, 2016

David's place was perfect for our stay in Silver Lake. It's exactly like the pictures - clean, spacious and with huge balcony. It is very affordable and has everything you need in there. The host was easily contactable and extremely welcoming! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - Silver Lake is a beautiful area.

- K.B. (Melbourne, VIC, Australia) - March, 2016

David's mother was very nice. Unfortunately there was a construction project nearby that was very noisy A queen size bed would improve the accommodation.

A.B. (Gig Harbor, WA, USA) - March, 2016

We had a very pleasant stay in Silver Lake, within walking distance of the family we were visiting. This is a very walkable neighborhood. The lodging was clean and comfortable. The patio was fun since we were visiting from a cold climate and could enjoy the California warmth.

J.J. (Brunswick, ME, USA) - February, 2016

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at the Silver Lake studio! It was comfortable, clean, quiet, and Judith made us feel right at home. We especially loved the spacious back porch where we enjoyed coffee and breakfast in the morning and wine in the evening. It was perfect! Judith was on hand to answer any questions but was not at all intrusive. We would definitely recommend the place to our friends!

- L.L. (New York, NY, USA) - February, 2016

Excellent and comfortable location in echo park and silver lake

K.B. (Los Angeles, CA, USA) - February 13, 2016

Great as always! Clean cozy and easy.

H.S. (New York, NY, USA) - February 10, 2016

This is an area almost completely lacking hotel or motel accommodation, so the suite is ideal for local visiting, and within a twenty minute drive of many of LA's attractions. The renter gets the entire lower portion of a house built on a slope, meaning that once in it you feel that you are completely in your own environment and not simply 'part of someone else's house'. The apartment benefits from a very large secluded deck and is almost totally surrounded by tall trees which will be ideal in summer months. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen, although compact, is offered with every appliance and utensil for basic home cooking. All in all a very competitive way to stay in LA!

Ideal hosts, kind and unobtrusive but offering any help wanted if necessary.

H.H. (England, UK) - January 21, 2016

The accommodation was most comfortable. Judith was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again when in Silver Lake.

S.U. (Minden, NV, USA) - January 9, 2016

David was extremely helpful and quick to respond to my inquiry. The apartment was great and my parents enjoyed their stay. Great, quiet neighborhood, good for walking.

S.K. (Los Angeles, CA, USA) - December 11, 2015

Absolutely perfect ... great location!

David's place was absolutely perfect for what I was looking for! It was a cozy, comfortable space in a great location! I love this neighborhood! Although we didn't get to officially meet in person because of my crazy schedule, Judith checked in with me to make sure everything was okay. I would definitely stay here again!

M.B. (Winchester, MA, USA) - November 17, 2015

Very pleasant stay! This cozy apartment is in a great location, close to restaurants and bars on Silverlake Ave. The place is very well stocked and has an amazing back deck. Our hosts were very accommodating and we felt right at home. Thanks!

- M.B. (San Francisco, CA, USA) - October 27, 2015

This apartment is in a great location, walking distance to a couple of bars, restaurants and cafes. The back patio is huge and surrounded by beautiful trees and very private. The apartment was well stocked with every household item we needed during our stay. We would stay here again.

- C.R. (Wilmington, NC, USA) - October 20, 2015

David and Judith were very welcoming, the instructions on contacting them and the house were clean (bed made, towels ready, etc), the place was clean and ready, with cold water waiting in the fridge. The bed was comfortable, the place spacious and private - the balcony looks onto trees, it feels idyllic. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

- R.D. (Los Angeles, CA, USA) - September 15, 2015

Great location and wonderful host.

We recently stayed with Judith in her very spacious and clean suite. We were in LA for 3 days and found that the location was fantastic. You will definitely need a car if you are stay in LA, and we had one. Judith's suite is located very centrally, with easy access to all the major freeways. While there, we were very easily able to make are way to Venice Beach, the Inglewood Forum, Sunset Blvd, Beverley Hills, Hollywood, Santa Monica and Malibu, using the freeway system. The suite is located in the Silver Lake area, and is a very safe, and now trending, area. The suite has access to coffee shops (SilverLake Coffee was our regular), pharmacies, restaurants, banks and grocery stores all within a 5 min walk or drive. We will definitely be staying there again, and I would highly recommend enjoying your morning coffee on the suite's back patio!!

- P.M. (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) - September 25, 2015

This is a great place to stay in a fantastic location. Highly recommend.

- K.F. (Los Angeles, CA, USA) - August 30, 2015

SilverLake is a must. Staying at this apartment is super straight forward. Judith and David were very welcoming. The place is beautiful and clean. No complaints. Would stay here again on another visit.

- R.O. (Inverness, IL, USA) - August 24, 2015

I absolutely loved my stay, the apartment was perfect. Looked exactly like the pictures, maybe even better, was super clean and had everything I needed. Silver lake is a safe and quite area with lots of cafés, restaurants and it's only 15mins away from west hollywood. I never got a chance to meet David because he was overseas at the time however I met Judith and she was lovely and helpful and gave me complete privacy though out my stay. I'll definitely be booking this place again!

Y.R. (Melbourne, VIC, Australia) - August 24, 2015

Our host made us feel very at home. Gave us a tour of the place and that was that. We had a very enjoyable stay and the description was accurate to the place. The location was in a quiet neighborhood very nice and quiet. Very close to Hollywood and Universal, very good spot if you have a car. Still accessible without one, as I was without one during my stay. I loved how at home I felt and how private it felt.

- R.G. (San Pablo, CA, USA) - August 20, 2015

The neighbourhood of the house was very quiet and select. There was very good facilities like a big deck and exhaustive kitchen. The room and the bathroom was extremely clean and useful. The only problem was the car parking. When you come to home in late hours, it becomes to find a park space very difficult. The householder, whose name is Judith, was very helpful and kind to us. We had good communication with her and had no problem at all. Overall, I am very glad to stay at this flat.

- E.U. (Turkey) - August 18, 2015

My husband's parents stayed here for a week while visiting us, and they were very happy with both the apartment and hosts. The bed and room were comfy, and they especially enjoyed sitting out on the deck. Overall great experience!

- T.F. (Los Angeles, CA, USA) - August 8, 2015

Not a bad place to stay while based in LA. You do definitely need a car, but that is likely in all parts of LA. Older style apartment, but kept clean overall. Spotty phone reception in the unit, but wifi held up so could use that instead. Didn't meet David, but we met and chatted with his mum, Judith who lives upstairs and manages the apartment who was a very warm and welcoming host. Good value apartment for a stay in LA. Only downside was that you can't control the temperature of the unit from within it - only the upstairs unit has the air con control, so it got a bit hot at times downstairs.

- A.O. (Gold Coast, Australia) - July 27, 2015

My husband, six year old son and I had a lovely visit at this little gem of a place. The highlight of the space is the gorgeous balcony attached to it. Its a great location- right next to Gingergrass which is scrumptious.

- A.T. (Chicago, IL, USA) - July 13, 2015

This suite is very clean, has a comfy bed, wonderful large private deck and is in a very central location. Our host was always available when questions came up. Only negative was limited parking. Would stay here again.

- K.D. (San Francisco, CA, USA) - Jun 29, 2015

We loved staying at David's Silver Lake apartment! The neighborhood was lovely and conveniently located. The apartment is really great - very spacious, with a comfortable bed, nice living room area, and a huge balcony (I enjoyed having my morning tea out there every day!). Judith was very warm and helpful, and made picking up and dropping off the keys very easy.

- K.S. (New York, NY, USA) - Jun 28, 2015

Very serene, peaceful, quiet apartment. The deck is huge and wonderful. The location is close to everything. If you need a full kitchen, this isn't the place for you, but all the equipment you need is there to feed yourself, including fridge, microwave, hot plate, and toaster oven. The bed is super comfy -- very comfortable bed and linens, nice wide, open space -- and my time here was restful.

- M.M. (Philadelphia, PA, USA) - June, 2015

Quiet, peaceful deck, spacious

Easy check-in, beautiful, comfortable space, with a lovely and very secluded back deck surrounded by very tall trees. Short walk to Gingergrass - vietnamese restaurant, Silver Lake Coffee, Red Lion Tavern and Cha Cha Lounge. Close walk to the reservoir and the Richard Neutra House (his former residence, now a museum).

- J.B. (Texas, USA) - June, 2015

Very clean and comfortable apartment in a beautiful neighborhood with a great host! We really enjoyed our stay.

- V.S. (San Francisco, CA, USA) - May, 2015

The apt was very clean, cozy, and quiet, which was all I needed for my stay. Also well located and with a beautiful porch! Judith and David were great, responded quickly and were very nice. I had a last minute booking and they were wonderful. Would love to stay here again!

- H.S. (New York, NY, USA) - May, 2015

This is a guest suite with a private entrance, but it's still a suite below David and Judith's house. It's a nicer place to stay than some other AirBnB listings since no one lives here regularly (so no worries about seeing other people's toiletries, etc) and Judith has added lots of touches to make every guest comfortable (lots of hanging space for clothes, ironing board, kitchenette with fridge, microwave, and full set of dishes, etc). The deck is huge, feels totally private, and is a fantastic outdoor living space. Only downside in the stay was a slight confrontation with Judith. House rules say deck lights must be turned off by 10:00pm. One night I turned them off a few minutes late, and at 10:10 Judith came downstairs upset. I guess her neighbor complained that the lights were still on at 10:05. I sympathize with the neighbor, but as I had already turned the lights off, the confrontation was not necessary. Judith apologized a few days later when we checked out, however. Because the apartment was so nice to stay in otherwise, and that deck was so fabulous, our stay still deserves 4 stars, and I would still recommend it to others. Just be sure to turn the lights off before 10!

- M.L., Chicago, IL, USA - April, 2015

The place was perfect for our needs, and Judith was a great host--not intrusive at all and very accommodating of our late arrival. The place was very clean.

- M.V.E., New York, NY, USA - April, 2015

Thank you, David. Our stay has been most pleasurable

- R.M., Charlottesville, VA, USA - March, 2015

Our host Judith is very sweet lady, she make sure that room is ready for our arrival, also she has handout for local attraction and restaurant, it is very helpful. the neighborhood is safe and close to highway, you have everything you need in the kitchen/bathroom. check-out is fast and easy, overall i had wonderful experience and i would stay at David's place again when i visit L.A. thank you Judith for having us!!!

- C.W., Suwanee, GA, USA - March, 2015

Quiet neighborhood that was quite lovely. It was close to our daughter. We only had difficulty finding parking once. I knew we could contact Judith if we needed to, but she respected our privacy.

Judith came right out to greet us-and save us an extra trip on the stairs. She showed us around, made sure we knew the important stuff and shared directions on yummy places to eat. Very pleasant neighborhood, we enjoyed the fragrant walks down the street. The apartment was clean, with lots of amenities like a coffeepot, real plates and silverware, cold water in the fridge.

I really can't think of anything to improve. We would certainly try to stay here again!

- D.P., Carbondale, IL, USA - March, 2015

I was looking for a very last minute rental and David made it all possible. He arranged for my boyfriend to be able to check-in the very night that I reached out and when he got there the place was beautiful and exactly as described.

- L.S., New York, NY, USA - March, 2015

It was a great experience staying at David's apartment and we have a wonderful time in L.A. David's place has a great location where is only 15 mins drive to downtown LA. We have everything we need in the apartment. It should be mentioned that there is a great family restaurant named ASTRO RESTAURANT which is just 5 mins walk from the apartment. Although David's place has no washing machine and dryer, you can easily find a coin laundry service near ASTRO restaurant.

- J.H., Hong Kong, China - March, 2015

Space was great - tidy, well thought-out and spacious layout, quiet. Judith our host was, as usual, gracious and flexible - a delight! Would definitely recommend this space to anyone wanting to stay in this neighborhood.

- T.W., Los Angeles, CA, USA - March, 2015

This apartment is really wonderful, and is true to the listing description. Judith was very accommodating, but also gave us our privacy. Everything felt clean, curated, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. We had beautiful 80 degree weather for our entire trip, so we did not make use of the fireplace. We did however make plenty use out of the back porch, which is surrounded by huge Cyprus trees. The neighborhood is centrally located (we went all over LA and didn't spend more than 30 minutes in the car). The surrounding streets are filled with succulents, giant agave plants, birds of paradise, and smells like jasmine. 5 stars!

- L.E., Boston, MA, USA - March, 2015

My husband and I stayed four nights in this "hidden treasure" in one of LA's trendiest neighborhoods. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street a couple of blocks uphill from a main thoroughfare, it provided easy access to our various destinations. We easily found good restaurants in the vicinity. Nearby Silver Lake has walking/running paths and calm park areas. The studio is nicely decorated with a comfortable bed, well-equipped kitchen and lots of lovely filtered light. Two sets of sliding glass doors open onto a large terrace overlooking a secluded green space. Access is down a somewhat steep exterior stair without handrail, so unsteady walkers be cautious. Host Judith was the picture of hospitality, accommodating of our planned early arrival, then most understanding when our flight delayed us two hours. We would definitely stay here again.

- J.J., Oregon, USA - February, 2015

Very nice place. Spacious. Good neighborhood. Very quiet, but still close to things. Easy check-in and check-out.

- J.H., San Francisco, CA, USA - February, 2015

I was a late booking on a Sunday evening and David made it very easy for me to get into the place after the transaction was completed on the air bnb site. I checked in with Judith (onsite) and the studio was perfect for me, nicely furnished and with all the amenities I needed.

The neighborhood is great, lots of great food and nightlife, close to the freeways and the studio has a great outdoor patio space too!

- C.F., London, England, UK - February, 2015

Great stay- host was kind enough to help me retrieve a left item- would stay again.

- M.M., Brooklyn, NY, USA - January, 2015

This is a very comfortable apartment that was in a perfect location for me - only 3 blocks from the person I was visiting and 2 blocks from a coffee shop (very important) and a very good Thai restaurant. Its also a few blocks from the Silver Lake Reservoir, which is a great location for joggers/walkers. I was out during the days and didn't have a chance to use the large deck, but I appreciated the very comfortable bed. I would stay again.

- L.L., Silver Spring, MD, USA - January, 2015

Very roomy studio. So much better than a hotel room. Everything was exactly as stated in the listing. The only "negative" was only a double bed instead of a queen. The best part was the private deck - especially for Midwesterners visiting in January! Enjoyed several meals at "Home" restaurant just down the hill and around the corner. Would definitely recommend to others and stay again!

- B.B., Marshall, MO, USA - January, 2015

I again had a wonderful time while staying in your studio. It is comfortable, elegantly appointed, and convenient to many of the restaurants and bars of Silver Lake, itself a magical community. The private deck is a fabulous place to sit and read or write, or just contemplate the lovely garden below. I also particularly liked the private entrance, and the security you provided for the studio. I will certainly make it my preferred residence any time I am traveling in Los Angeles.

- D.B., Atlanta, GA, USA - December, 2014

Spacious Silver Lake Studio Well Appointed

This is a large studio in a quiet residential area, with shops and restaurants within walking distance. Bonus space in large walk-out deck that overlooks private backyard. Has fireplace and sophisticated security system. Kitchen fully supplied, roomy studio has high quality sheets and towels and is spotlessly clean. Two dressers, armoire with full length mirror, lots of electrical outlets. Checks accepted for deposit but we were told upon check-in that cash was required for shorter rental periods, so inquire about mode of payment before you arrive. On-street parking is available but can be tight. Only negatives were smallish double bed - traveling companions need to be good friends because there's no separate couch, instead a lovely small loveseat. Wi-Fi connection didn't work over Thanksgiving but we were assured by the owner this would be fixed on Monday. Judith is friendly and helpful, lives upstairs and is not intrusive. Good value for the money, we hope to return.

- M.M., Livermore, CA, USA - December, 2014

Great, private place with a nice deck. Judith was extremely warm and hospitable.

- K.S, Menlo Park, CA, USA - October, 2014

This is a lovely place and Judith made me feel at home from the moment I arrived. Clean, comfortable, it was nice calling this home for a few days. Quick drive to tons of great restaurants and downtown. Will be back! Thank you!

- D.M., New York, NY, USA - October, 2014

This place is fantastic!

We rented this lovely suite for six nights and were completely satisfied. It really felt like "home". We had everything we needed...a bedroom, a living room, a fully equipped kitchen, a good-sized bathroom and................. a lovely, lovely private deck surrounded by trees and other vegetation which were not common in Georgia (where we live). We definitely would stay here again.

- C.H., Georgia, USA - October, 2014

I booked this space for my brother and his girlfriend for 5 nights. They loved it! It was spacious, clean and very quiet. They loved the patio as well, and enjoyed having a full kitchen. It's tucked away in a hilly neighborhood with lots of walking distance activities (food, bars, grocery). Judith was sweet and welcoming.

- J.J., Los Angeles, CA, USA - October, 2014

Our stay was everything we had hoped for and more. Judith was gracious host and us some good information on places to eat and shop near by the house. We had a Starbucks in the same area also. The accomodations were just as discribed so they met our needs very nicely. We enjoyed eating bredakfast on our private deck every morning and eve had a lite dinner of cheece, crackers, chicken and wine out there one evening. We would certainly reecommend David and Judith's accomodations to anyone traveling to LA.

- J.L., Richarson, TX, USA - September, 2014

Fantastic space! Spacious layout with modern furniture as per the pictures that was clean and well-maintained by our courteous hostess. Highly recommend!

- T.W., Los Angeles, CA, USA - September, 2014

A lovely little place, pretty central to all the famous places tourists like us want to visit. We would book it again :-)

We did not get to know David because he was travelling, but his mother did a great job. She is one of the dearest persons we have met during our USA-Tour.

- V.B., Germany - August, 2014

Loving the place it's been great

Lovely flat with a sunny patio, really enjoyed our stay here, our host was kind and unobtrusive, would recommend to anyone.

- J.R., San Francisco, CA, USA - July, 2014

[...] and me had a wonderful time at our house thanks again for your advice with the parking and so on .. You were great hosts and I think we are coming back sometime ;).

Wonderful and quiet suite we had a awesome time :)

- J.W., Germany - June, 2014

Its been a great stay.

- R.M., Charlotsville, VA, USA - June, 2014

This was a seamless experience, the accommodations perfect and the location too. The hostess was completely helpful and great. There were visitor materials in the suite that enhanced staying in Los Angeles. Great!

- A.B., Los Angeles, CA, USA - May, 2014

Everything was great and we surely will try to come again.

- M.M., Charlotseville, VA, USA - March, 2014

Me and my girlfriend had a great stay at your space! Judith was a lovely host and the place was very clean & comfortable.

- C.A., USA - March, 2014

The apartment was clean, roomy and in a great location. The bed was comfy and the patio was private with lots of sunshine and available shade. We would stay there again.

- R.G., Hillsborough, NJ, USA - March, 2014

David and Judith were great hosts. The place was peaceful and quiet and had everything I needed. The deck was a great place to relax after work and read a book!

- J.N., San Francisco, USA - March, 2014

Extra wonderful place and a lovely stay.

- N.N., New York, NY, USA - March, 2014

Thank you for everything! We had a great stay. :)

- C.A., Portland, OR, USA - February, 2014

Thank you so much Judith and David. Our 10 day stay in your lovely, spotless Silverlake apartment was perfect. We were close to our son and all that LA has to offer. The extra large private deck was a special plus. We were also able to park conveniently every day a few steps from the apartment. The weather, of course, was heavenly. We're enjoying an extra day today since our New York flight was cancelled due to snow more reason to come back soon.

- B.P., New York, USA - January, 2014

Thank you for the wonderfull staying. I just finished walking around the streets of your house and with the beautiful climate, the nice people, the cosy neat houses it has become my favourite living place ever. So expect us to see you at the Ralph's grocery coming years some time ;-)

- M.J., Eindhoven, Netherlands - November, 2013

Perfect location, excellent hosts

Moving from Brooklyn to Silver Lake and needed a place to stay in the area that wouldn't break the bank. This place is a gem, David and Judith are the sweetest hosts you could ask for. Apartment is in the perfect location for visiting friends in Silver Lake, Echo Park and Los Feliz. And it's walking distance to the reservoir, Silver Lake Coffee and Red Lion Tavern. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to future visitors.

- C.E., Brooklyn, NY, USA - September, 2013

Was working in Whittier, but wanted to stay "in the action" and I was looking for a place at the last minute as have been on the road for 6 weeks using Airbnb. David immediately returned my inquiry and was completely accommodating. Judith was very sweet during check-in, and made sure I had everything I needed. The place is a great hideaway in the Silverlake hills, with tasteful furnishings and appointments and lots of natural light. Parking for me was easy, and aside from traffic on Glendale, was convenient to get to my client. Overall a space that I would recommend for a convenient and comfortable location to enjoy a slice of Hollywood living.

- C.T., Dallas, TX, USA - October, 2013


Had a wonderful time. Judith was a gracious hostess. We loved the car. Even though parking was a challenge. Only suggestion was a handrail down the steps would be a nice addition.

- D.M., Birmingham, AL, USA - September, 2013

This spacious, clean studio is in the perfect location to explore la like a local. It's walking distance to Silver Lake reservoir (great for running), the supermarket, a fruit stand and a tasty Vietnamese restaurant. Silver Lake is the Brooklyn of La-- a fun/trendy/artsy/hipster neighborhood! We found parking in front of the house for 3 of the 4 nights we stayed here, and parked a couple blocks away the last night. Judith was very friendly + offered helpful suggestions for local activities. Loved the large patio and the super fast wifi! Tv/furnishings are a bit out of date, but we didn't mind. Note there are stairs to get to the apartment.

- L.K., New York, NY, USA - September, 2013

Thank you - the stay so far has been fantastic!

- M.D., Freehold, NJ, USA - August, 2013

Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

- G.G., Florida, USA - August, 2013

Thank you so much, my stay felt so much like I just had my own apartment here in town, it truly was just what I needed, I really appreciate it.

- A.T., Austin, TX, USA - July, 2013

Fits the Bill! Good location

This is a sweet studio and very it's centrally locationed between downdown L.A and Univeral city.

Great for 2 people. The bed is great! Thanks for everything Judith you let us have our privacy but was there if we needed anything.

- N.B., Costa Rica - May, 2013

Our stay was great. nothing really to complaint about it. There is a bus station to downtown LA not far away. the ride takes about 10 min to downtown. We were able to park the car in front of the flat. silver lake is a nice and secure place.

Great apartment in a cool suburb

My partner and I stayed here in april and really enjoyed ourselves. The apartment is well appointed, spacious and very comfortable. Silverlake is a really great suburb: cool houses, some good shops and not touristy.

We took up the opportunity to also hire the car which turned out to also include GPS. That was pretty essential for getting around la. You will need a car at this location.

David and Judith made our stay pleasant and all the correspondence was clear, prompt and friendly. We highly recommend this apartment if you would like a relaxed stay in la in a great area.

This is a great apartment in a just about perfect location! Very clean and comfortable with just about everything you need right there. I loved the little kitchen, full-size refrigerator, comfy bed, great shower, and the amazing balcony. Located in a very quiet neighborhood blocks from Glendale Blvd right near some of my favorite spots (Silver Lake Wine, the Red Lion Tavern, and Gingergrass) we really loved our stay here. Although the neighborhood is very quiet keep in mind this apartment it the lower level in a house so you will hear the neighbors a little bit (muted conversation, moving furniture, etc), but that didn't both or impact my stay at all. Communication is the best I've had on AirBNB. Great stay!

The place was cozy and comfortable. The hosts were nice and unobtrusive. We'd stay here again!

- D.T., Seattle, WA, USA - February, 2013

The place is very nice, quiet and relaxing. Judith was a very friendly and communicative host.

The suite is really spacious, and it's even nicer than the pictures showed.

- D.K., Minneapolis, MN, USA - February, 2013

Loved staying here, the suite is so comfortable, and the location made it easy to get to freeways. Would like to come back in the future.

- M.C., Boston, MA, USA - February, 2013

Excellent place to stay!"

The suite is super comfortable and had everything we needed. The only thing I would change is the bed; a double is pretty small to share. The car is very quirky but mechanically sound and super fun to drive; it really grew on me. I would totally stay here again!

I would recommend this accommodation to my best friend!

A very pleasant stay in a well appointed, well positioned apartment with good amenities and links.

- S.C., London, England, UK - December, 2012

Great location! Incredibly fair prices, especially compared to hotel

- K.H., Raleigh, NC, USA - December, 2012

Great place in handy location

We felt the picture did not do justice to the apartment. A few minutes drive to Hollywood and other tourist areas it was nonetheless quiet and comfortable. Great to be able to use the outside deck and a good kitchen to cook. The apartment was scrupulously clean and a short stroll to supermarkets, food outlets and several bars/restaurants. We very much enjoyed our stay.

- G.A., Melbourne, Australia - October, 2012

I totally recommend it!!!

The reason I booked it was the reasonable price and because I wanted to experience la like a local not like a visitor. The studio is clean, comfortable and spacious. It has everything one needs for a short stay in la and the VW behaved excellent for its old age. David and Judith are simply great hosts. Next time I travel to Los angeles, if the studio is free to rent, it'll my first choice.

- L.U., Oradea, Romania - October, 2012

Very pleased!
We stayed for one week for our wedding. Price was well within reason. The studio had everything we needed, to included extra supplies. A blow up mattress was provided for staying guest. The huge deck was perfect for kicking back and relaxing. Amazingly tall trees stretched up giving us privacy. The location was perfect providing us quick access to downtown and everywhere else. Parking was limited however we managed with no issues. Neighborhood was safe and quiet. Judy was welcoming and understanding. Thank you for the nice congratulation card.

We are enjoying our stay, and this suite is as comfortable as always

- R.S., Philadelphia, PA - August, 2012

I would highly recommend!

Pictures on web were good, but actual studio was much much better...clean, convenient and very comfortable.

- C.T., Arizona, USA - August, 2012

We would go back without hesitation

From the time we requested the booking we were in contact immediately with either David or his mother and there was communication throughout the stay.

My wife loved the deck...I enjoyed the spacious bathroom.

Cooking facitilities/cookware were a little limited, but we were able to make do and we now know what to expect.

The arrangement with the car could be made clearer from the git-go

- M.R., Greeley, CO, USA - July, 2012

Thanks so much for your place. It was awesome.

- E.M., Los Angeles, CA, USA - July, 2012

We loved our stay. Plenty of room and all necessities were provided. We would stay again without hesitation. We have no hesitation about recommending it to others. Judith was in contact prior to our arrival and available throughout our stay.

- M.R., Greeley, CO - June, 2012

Comfortable, convenient location

The studio is a comfortable space, with a large bathroom, adequate kitchen, and large deck with outdoor furniture. The unit could use a coat of paint and I wish it had a queen bed. The full size bed is a limiting factor for a couple.

- T.S., Seattle, WA, USA - June, 2012

Silverlake cool

Excellent location in Silverlake. A very spacious place, clean and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom had everything you need and nothing that you don't. Beautiful terrace. Street parking never a problem in the nine days we spent there.

- L.M., Danbury, CT, USA - May, 2012

We're enjoying our stay and love the accommodation.

- J.K., New York, USA - May, 2012

We really enjoyed the location, comfort and cleanliness of the apartment. Hopefully, it won't be too long until we are able to come out to LA again to visit! We'll be back.

- L.J., Michigan, USA - April, 2012

Excellent efficiency for a month or less

We were trying on la for size and thought a month's stay would give us an idea of what it would be like to live there on an extended basis. The apartment is part of a duplex and the landlords are on site. It's not fancy, but well thought out, very clean and maintained. The landlords supplied most of the essentials for the kitchen and bathroom. There is a large outside private deck and a fireplace (which we didn't use). Both David and Judith (the landlords) were extremely responsive to any questions or problems that arose. Quiet, walkable to a Ralph's, CVS, bars and the reservoir. Street parking was never a problem. This apartment was ideal for people who want to be in the Silver Lake, Los Feliz area and feel comfortable in a more residential neighborhood. There is nothing touristy about it. If you are looking for a tourist experience, you will have to drive to Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, etc. For us, it was a great experience and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

- M.O., New York, NY, USA - March, 2012

Megan and I are loving the apartment. It is very convenient.

- H.W., New York, NY, USA - March, 2012

Exceeds Expectations

Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced. It was a great alternative to staying in a hotel: the location was central without the noise. The owners were very kind. I would stay here again.

- C.K., Wisconsin, USA - January, 2012

Spent 5 nights there and found this to be a great place, well-equipped and maintained, nice hosts.Great location up a hill from glendale and silverlake blvds. Basic cooking facility (hot plate), other gadgets. I enjoyed the gas fireplace. street parking was a little tight but available -- I guess you might have to walk a couple of blocks.

I had a great time staying here --- thanks for making it so comfortable.

- R.C., New York, NY, USA - January, 2012

This place was very clean, quiet, and so much better than stayin

Although we could not always find a parking space right in front of the apartment, we did find spaces several doors away- no problem. Location is very convenient with Starbucks, Ralphs, and CVS within walking distance. We will return.

- K.S., New York, USA - November, 2011

Perfect...I really enjoyed my stay...this is ideal for conference center attendees.

- J.K., Denver, CO, USA - October, 2011

Thanks for the lovely privilege of staying in your home. We loved it!.

We truly hope to stay with you again on our next trip to LA.

Thanks again for your warm hospitality.

- J.G., Minneapolis, MN, USA - September, 2011

I have liked my stay and explored the Silverlake area by walking.

- M.M., Charlotseville, VA - August, 2011

The car is not new by any means but still brings you places. It was nice to have a convertible but it would be nicer if it had a radio. The studio is in a basement but the rear patio is really nice and intimate. The suite was clean and the hosts were friendly and respectful. If you want to visit la, the location is really good.

- J.S., Alberta, Canada - August, 2011

This is a great value. The apartment is clean, has everything needed for a short stay, the bed is comfortable, it has a great private patio, and is well located. We look forward to staying here the next time we are in LA .

- J.Y., USA - August, 2011

Worked out perfectly

The property was in a nice secluded spot within close distance to the sights, but nicely removed from too much commotion. The hosts, who live above, were extremely nice and accommodating, and it was fun having a convertible to drive around town in. Staying here definitely contributed to a great trip overall.

- P.W., USA - July, 2011

Very nice little condo. Big nice deck that I did not unfortunately get to use. The bed was super comfortable and the place was very clean. Parking was a bit hard but otherwise I would definitely come back here.

"Really great place. Completely safe neighborhood. The owner was out of town, but took care of everything via email and his mother helped with the check-in. 5 minutes from the heart of sliver lake, and 5 minutes from Los Feliz Village. My local friends came over and loved it too."
- C.S., USA - March, 2011

"Judy was very welcoming. The apartment was clean and homey. We enjoyed the fireplace especially since it was raining and cold outside. The neighborhood offered everything from a bar to a CVS [pharmacy]. We enjoyed our stay and how close we were to Hollywood. A definite if you are traveling through LA!"
- V.C., Gainesville, FL - December, 2010

"The studio was very roomy, comfortable, clean and the owner was very nice. The car was a good choice and got us around with no problems.

My daughter and I enjoyed a lot our time in this suite. The owners, David and Judith are very nice. The studio is exactly as the photos and is perfectly clean and complete. The linen is absolutely new and fresh, the gadgets in the kitchen are new and very, very clean. The whole studio is extremely organized for two people and tidy. We will return in the future and we'll recommend the property!! Thanks a lot !!!"
- M.D., Oswego, NY - September, 2010

- J.Z., Shanghai, China - August, 2010

"We love the suite and are so comfortable there. We are enjoying it very much. It has everything anyone could need."
- M.D., Argentina - August, 2010

"I enjoyed my stay extensively and would highly recommend this as an alternative to a hotel -- especially if you have family or friends living in Silver Lake or Echo Park! I described it to friends as a "bed and breakfast" without the breakfast.

The only (very minor) drawbacks were that the phone rang several times (seeming to be someone trying to fax something?), and in an otherwise well-equipped kitchen for essentials (dishes, silverware, pots & pans, electric kettle, salt and pepper...) there was no sugar that I could find which kind of surprised me.

I only add these things in case the owners read this and care to address these very minor issues. They certainly weren't worth complaining about at the time. Overall my stay was excellent!!!"
- J.C., Indiana - August, 2010

"We very much liked staying here, everything was very nice. We will recommend the place to other people."

- P.C., Princeton, NJ - July, 2009

"I am really enjoying yr apartment !!"
- A.S., Tokyo, Japan - August, 2009

"We were truly delighted with everything during our short but perfect trip. Silver Lake Suite offers privacy and comfort in a perfectly located, friendly and hip neighborhood of L.A. Hosts were amazing, helpful and at your disposal; Cottage is clean, well kept and provides with all necessary amenities and more - who doesn't love a nice fire on a brisk evening or a good coffee on the sunny patio in the morning?! The car was a definite plus, and the guest house itself is just steps away from coffee shops, banks, liquor stores, restaurants etc, but still quietly isolated form the hustle and bustle of L.A. Rates are really outstanding considering everything that is provided.... Will definitely be back, thank you!"
