Interaction with guests
We have created easy access for our guests to independently gain entry into their flat. Lock box and security information will be shared with the guests prior to check in.
We like to give our guests their space and have created an independently accessed home away from home. We will supply you with detailed instructions on how to access and work things within the property. We appreciate guests who can enjoy an independent stay as they would in their own home.
Since we are sharing our home, we are most likely traveling, and it is difficult, if not impossible for us to get there on short notice. The best way to reach us is by messaging us through the Airbnb website, and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.
Other things to note
This is a family owned and run property that is a labor of love for us and we enjoy sharing our space with people who want to experience neighborhood living in Silverlake. It is a high priority for us that our guests feel comfortable and safe during their stay and we will work to accommodate your needs within reason. The property is completely gated, including parking.
This is an old home built in the 1920's and although it boasts modern amenities, it maintains the quirks and imperfections of an old, pre-war home. We do not have A/C and the accommodations are modest when comparing major hotels.
For filming and special events, please inquire.
Please remember that you will be staying in a home, not a hotel. Therefore, we ask that you treat our space with the same respect you would show your own. We travel often and have help managing guest services for our home while we are away.
Dogs are welcome, but we charge $15 per day, per pet. Therapy and service dogs are free; documents required.
We are unable to provide concierge service, and trust that you will be self sufficient.

I am originally from Pennsylvania, and have called Los Angeles home for almost twenty years. I bought this property with my sister 10 years ago and it has been a labor of love for us. We have eclectic tastes and like to decorate our homes with interesting finds from our travels. We take great care in maintaining our property.
