About this listing

Cozy one bedroom + study overlooking the mountains and Silver Lake reservoir. This apartment has a zen like feel, decorated with little pieces brought back from our travels around the world.

The space

Come relax in this bright and comfortable upstairs apartment located in a duplex house, on a beautifully landscaped Swiss inspired, gated hillside property in Silver Lake, with charm and character to inspire anyone. The apartment is a zen retreat, with a large peaceful and private deck with views of Mount Wilson.

One block from the Silver Lake Reservoir Meadows Park, the views from the property include the Silverlake Reservoir, Griffith Park, Mt. Wilson, the Hollywood sign (peek view) and downtown Glendale. There are multiple areas on the property to enjoy your time, including the large private patio with cafe table and swinging bench, an upper hillside deck with a hammock swing, as well as a community fire pit (though no fires can be made in summer due to the fire danger).

The bedroom has a queen bed. The office comes equipped with a desk to study or write. Enjoy your meals in the diner style nook with a view. The kitchen has recently been updated with new stainless steal appliances, including a 5 burner stove.

Free Wi-fi, Roku, and one gated parking spot is included!

This is my house. I travel often and this enables me to share my home with you. Feel free to use the items I have left for your convenience. Please respect my home as you would your own.

Centrally located, there is easy access to the 2, 5 and 101 freeways; a short walk to public transportation (the city bus stops two houses away.); three blocks from the grocery store (Whole Foods coming soon!); the Los Angeles County library; two blocks from great restaurants and bars. Easy access to Hollywood, Downtown, Chinatown, Pasadena, The Staples Center, The Nokia Center, The LA Convention Center, MOCA, Walt Disney Concert Center, Dodger Stadium, Elysian Park, Echo Park, Echo Park Lake, Sunset Boulevard, and the Rose Bowl. There is a friendly, well maintained dog park just down the hill.
Silver Lake boasts fantastic restaurants, clubs, and boutique shopping. Hike in Griffith Park. Grab a coffee at Intelligencia, See live music at Satellite. It's all nearby.

Dogs are accepted. Please no cats. Dogs must be crated when left unattended.

Laundry is currently unavailable.

For filming and special events, please inquire.

Guest access

This flat has its own private large balcony, however guests are welcome to take in the different views from the many different patios on the 11,000 square foot property. Due to the drought climate, fires in the fire pit are not allowed.

We currently do not have laundry.

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 have supplied you with detailed instructions on how to access and work things within the property as well as recommendations of local restaurants and emergency info. 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 sometimes difficult for us to get there on short notice. It is best to contact us through Airbnb messaging.

We love dogs, but not cats. We charge $15 per day, per dog. Therapy and service dogs are free; documents required.

We are unable to provide concierge service, and trust that you will be self sufficient.

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 you within reason.

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.

This is an old home built in the 1920's with modern amenities but still retains the quirks and imperfections of an old, prewar home.

*We charge an added fee of $15/day for each pet.

For filming and special events, please inquire.

Laundry is currently unavailable.

Mike's place was just absolutely fantastic, a walking distance from everything you need, supermarket, banks, restaurants and the reservoir, yet it was secluded and quiet inside the green landscape of Silverlake. I simply Loved It, will always recommend it...

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.
