The 1924 Gerber Duplex Residence and gardens! Magda Gerber was an early childhood education pioneer who lived in this historic home for 50 years - hidden on a "secret" drive in the hills of the best part of Silverlake. Beautifully restored duplex above it all with modern amenities including a jacuzzi bath. The outdoor deck overlooks the fountain & lush gardens shaded by giant rubber, redwood and avocado trees. A magic and peaceful treehouse. Private upper unit yet in the middle of it all.

The space

Flawless restored upper residence! With views to downtown and Hollywood sign! The Ulitmate Silverlake experience at the top of a hill just above the very best part of Sunset Boulevard! Take the hidden hillside stairs to Sunset Junction - home of Intelligensia, Vista Theater, Thirsty Crow, Night + Market Song, Casita Del Campo, Los Feliz and great shopping and sight-seeing. The Gerber House is on a "secret circle drive" with virtually no traffic. 2 large bedrooms with walk-in closets and a gorgeous 1924 bath with jacuzzi tub. Every care has been taken to restore the building while retaining many original 1924 details. Serene, gated with beautiful decks and gardens and a treeswing. Fresh linens, high-end appliances, washer/dryer AC, premium cable, WIFI. Garage included!

Guest access

Gorgeous house in a beautiful neighborhood. The outdoor deck was particularly lovely for romantic dinners, overlooking a beautiful garden and sheltered by an enormous avocado tree. The house is spacious, with art deco furniture and details. Very comfortable as well. And Edward was very responsive to any questions I had.

We loved staying at Edward's Air BNB! The back patio is so relaxing, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. Just be careful when parking your car as to not block the neighbor's garage. Would definitely stay again!

Our group was first scheduled to take a trip to Puerto Rico but the hurricane blew us all the way west to this beautiful home and garden which made for a most excellent alternative. The entire space is gorgeous and most relaxing. Excellent location and close drive to most city amenities. I would most recommend this place for a nice couple getaway or even a small couples retreat. Gorgeous and relaxing.

Sorry, it must have gotten buried in all the trash you left behind everywhere.

Perfect location to visit Los Angeles. The house is very beautiful, in a quiet environment and the terrace is very nice. The area is lively with many restaurants. Edward is an accommodating, precise and discreet host. We had a great week!

Awesome host. Terrific, charming home. Beautiful garden area. Full foliage views from windows. High quality sheets, fluffy towels. Great location to enjoy SIlverlake. Walkable to many restaurants, coffee shops, cool stores if you are not deterred by steep streets. Got lots of kudos from my fellow travelers. Would definitely return.
