Other things to note

There is a house being built on the next street behind us and sometimes you can hear the occasional hammers on weekdays outside or in the rear of the house but not so often since they are about with the wood part. They are done by 4pm.

Also, on Wednesday mornings, there are gardeners of the neighbors leaf blowing so it's a little loud in Wednesday mornings briefly.

The shower has a lever to turn on the water before using the taps.

Thank you so much for renting our home! We are very happy to have you.

CHECK IN TIME: From 3PM til late.

If you need an EARLY CHECK-IN or LATE CHECK-OUT, let us know and we might be able accommodate you. You may also leave your luggage on the day of check-in or check-out.

If you have any needs or issues, if any supplies run out, please immediately let us know. We are only a message, call or text away. We really would love your stay to be wonderful for you.

Our house isn't childproofed so may be inappropriate for those with children under 13.

Our house is a home where we have and not a hotel. Since we are not there everyday, we can't observe if there's a problem. Please let us know if you see any issues, like windows not closing properly, leaks, etc. Thanks!

It's a home built in 1928, so like any home, it's not perfect. If something comes up that inconveniences you, please let us know right away and we will send someone to repair.

It's an honor system. Feel free to use items we have designated for your use. We have a whole rack for items in the kitchen, leave dresser and closet space for you. We tape off any cabinets we would rather you not use so that it's clear.

If anything else is used, please replace or leave some $US cash on the dining table (yes, we once had foreign currency in the fridge!), or tell us to bill you via Airbnb. They have a resolution center for after the rental for settling any unfinished matters and it's quite simple.

If something broke, got damaged, fell off, etc. or an Amazon Prime or Netflix that cost extra was ordered, please kindly tell us. It's good karma.

Sometimes, damage might be due to the age of the item or something is minor. We won't charge for certain repairs if we are INFORMED about the damage as we decide it needed to be replaced anyhow. No service fee is added if we are informed. Unfortunately, we have had a few groups not tell us about damage done to furniture and who didn't want to take responsibility. So if we are not informed, and the more of our TIME we have to take to deal with discovery, repair or replacement of damage, we reserve the right to charge an extra service fee on any replacement costs of 20% above the replacement or repair. If Airbnb must get involved, we will have to itemize every repair needed and charge a 30% service fee. So please just let us know about any damage so things are cheaper and more efficient for everyone. Thank you!

Please leave the house as much the way you found it as possible. Absolutely no oils or perfumes please on upholstery or furniture. Please use coasters when leaving drinks on surfaces (except in kitchen and bathroom.) We have coasters available in all the rooms.

Please no wet towels or wet items on beds or furniture. They have caused damage to fabrics in the past. Please hang wet towels only on bathroom hooks and hooks behind bedroom doors, or the hooks on the screen of the front room. We also have a folding drying rack in the kitchen next to the dryer.

We take care of all of these things so we can all enjoy the house in its beauty and serenity. THANK YOU AND WELCOME TO THIS LOVELY, PEACEFUL HOME!

Doan is lovely. The house is very cosy and feels like home. Plenty of living space outside too. Get some exercise and walk down cool silver lake steps to LAMILL coffee. Close to Sunset and Downtown. Parking spot in the drive is great. Thanks Doan, will definitely stay again :)

Nice charming older home with a great location and very quiet. Doan was very receptive to questions and very gracious with sharing her house with us. The outdoor area was exceptional but a bit too hot to enjoy during our stay. The location can't be beaten for Dodger Stadium events and Silverlake restaurants.

Doan & Phil's place was great. Perfectly located and very cozy. Doan was very communicative and helpful when it came to logistics (arriving, leaving, etc.) as well as neighborhood recommendations (where to eat, drink, shop, etc). We had a great time in LA and would definitely recommend staying here!

This place is so nice, & warm, especially with the nice plants & books in there, house is fully equipped and you really don't need anything from outside. Me & my family felt like home. Doan is very helpful, responsive & welcoming, she is also very friendly. I found it very accessible to many sites in LA, shopping, business & recreation. Highly recommend.

Doan's place is absolutely terrific. We were looking for a home in Silver Lake while in town for work and it could not have been more convenient. The place was comfortable, spacious, and well-decorated. Doan was very communicative and gracious. She provided all of the amenities we could have asked for and made sure we felt welcome. Her house has a very relaxed vibe that put us at ease after long days of work. Thanks Doan!

Doan is a very nice and considerate house owner. She is also very responsive. Doan's house is awesome! We were actually provided much more than what we needed! The house is so cozy, the balcony is amazing especially with the garden light in the evening. The kitchen is also amazing! We cooked there and felt like just at home. We really had a good time at her house!We would definitely return! Vanessa

Really great house and location. My partner’s family were in town and we put them up in this house near us. The host's friend met them and showed them around the property and demonstrated how things work. The place was spacious, looked like the pictures, and had good working wifi. We grilled outside with the in-laws and ate on the back deck and enjoyed the backyard and the typically beautifl SoCal weather. Beds were comfy, bedrooms quiet. Doan left coffee & tea supplies, a kettle, cereal, instant oatmeal, and yogurt. Would definitely book this place again – interactions with the host was great and everyone felt well taken care of. The house is in a nice residential neighborhood, and within walking distance of Sunset where there are a lot of cool restaurants, bars, mid-century modern furniture shops, etc. For a slightly longer walk (maybe 20 minutes) you could walk to Echo Park lake or the Silverlake Reservoir. The drive to downtown is really fast – probably 10 minutes to the Music Center and Disney Hall, as well as museums and other cultural attractions.
