About this listing

A perfect place in the best part of Silverlake. Easy to explore everything from the hip local scene to Hollywood to Downtown. From your private paradise, it's a 5-minute walk to great restaurants, bars, and shopping, or around the lake. Great views from both sides of the house of the downtown skyline, the lake, the mountains. Restore yourself in the pool, spa, and secret garden. A quiet, creative place for families, for romance, for you to renew yourself.

The space

Colorful, sparkling modern jewel home. The perfect place to experience the best of Los Angeles. Situated on the ridge of a hill with a private driveway, you will be welcomed by fantastic views in multiple directions. From the living room, the whole of Silver Lake, trees, pretty houses and the tops of the skyscrapers of Downtown LA. And on the back side, views of city lights and mountains from the private yard and award-winning modern pool and spa. And look west towards the sunset over the beautiful hills of Silverlake and the Griffith Observatory. The house's position makes for a breeze so that even the hottest summer days feel perfect here.

Inside, the look is eclectic, colorful, modern, minimal, casual, and relaxing. Outside, you'll have a magazine-cover private pool and spa, deck and lawn, gardens in front and back, organic citrus trees to pick from, and a secret garden.

All this, yet it's a short walk to some of best bars & restaurants in the city, and two blocks to the running trail around Silver Lake. The perfect location: safe and quiet, but in the center of where you want to be.

Fast wireless internet throughout the house, ample free off-street private parking for four cars, washer and dryer, AC, whole-house water purifier, two showers, two baths, hot tub, pool, two fireplaces, 1913 Chickering upright piano.

The Master Bedroom has a organic king size mattress and bedding on a beautiful Danish midcentury platform frame. The master has an en-suite bathroom with spa tub, shower, and dual sinks. The bedroom has direct access to the deck, outside spa, and pool. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and direct access to a 2nd bathroom with toilet, and shower/bath. The 3rd bedroom, which also directly adjoins guest bathroom, is usually set up as office.

Stylish living room has direct view of Silverlake, and a fireplace. Architectural kitchen has a great 6-burner Thermador chef's stove, with dual oven, and an additional fireplace.

Add in a sun/mediation space, board games for kids, a great vinyl and cd collection, and you have everything you could dream of for a stay in this wonderful city, and more.

For a romantic oasis right in the city, or a lovely place for you and your kids to enjoy, or for a magic spot for a creative recharge (or some combo of all those things), this is THE place.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole house, including the private pool and spa, the front and back yards, and the gardens.

Interaction with guests

This a private home, not a hotel. Either I or my assistant or very nice cleaners will show you around the house when you arrive. After check-in I leave my guests alone to enjoy their stay.

My assistant will be available should any problems arise, or I will be available by phone (I usually only rent when I am out of town).

Other things to note

This is a private home for families to relax, for couples wanting romance, for writers and artists looking for a quiet place to write, or for mature individuals doing business in Los Angeles. This definitely not a party house, so if that's what you're planning, don't inquire. Otherwise, feel free to write with any questions, and, welcome!

I live in a peaceful, upscale part of Silverlake. This is a wonderful and safe place for families or couples to stay. It's not a house for partiers or groups where everyone won't behave responsibly. Out of respect for neighbors, gatherings of more than seven people aren't permitted. Guests are expected to be respectful and considerate throughout their stay, and to be quiet outside from 10pm-9am. Full house manual will be provided to confirmed guests.

Film and photo shoots aren't permitted for regular renters; however, if you'd like to do a photo shoot, ask and we can make arrangements. And feel free to ask if you have any other questions. Welcome!

Ethan's place is an excellent place to stay in LA -- both comfortable and tasteful -- with everything you need. Beautiful views, great kitchen, and fresh lemons and oranges from the trees in the garden. The washer and dryer are great if you have kids -- but the pool and hot tub are even better. A true bonus is Ethan's record and tape collection that you can play on his stereo, through warm-sounding vintage speakers. A great space.

Ethan is a great host. Always available for any questions and was extremely accommodating about changing his plans so we could stay in the house longer when my wife got sick. The pool is awesome and the house is open and breezy. Well equipped kitchen. I love to cook and it was great to cook in. Also the neighborhood is perfect. Jesse

I'm a musician, performer, composer, and music producer. I keep my house clean. When I'm out of town playing shows etc it would be great to have someone rent my beautiful home.
