We rented this lovely suite for six nights and were completely satisfied. It really felt like "home". We had everything we needed...a bedroom, a living room, a fully equipped kitchen, a good-sized bathroom and.................a lovely, lovely private deck surrounded by trees and other vegetation which were not common in Georgia (where we live). We definitely would stay here again.
I had read in previous reviews about people feeling rushed at checkout. That happened but I think it was because another guest was arriving the same day. Other con's that have been mentioned: parking is a bit of a struggle but not impossible. And the TV is by no means a flat screen nor with much cable to speak of, it's pretty limited, and you can't control the A/C so that is pretty much at the whim of the owner upstairs. Pros: very clean and quiet and convenient location. Good size for one person as a studio, but may be too small for two.
The Studio is located near to Beverly Hilly and West Hollywood (10 min). The neighborhood seems safe and "normal". Nearby is a Ralphs supermarket, a gaz station and some rataurants( all 2 min) . Judith was a very friendly host and the suite is comfotable and very clean. the kitchen is functional and we found everything wee need. Salt, Peper, aluminium papaper, Ba gs ... all the little things nobody wants to buy for 1 week or 2. Kitchen and Bath paper, very good towels etc. etc. we are very happy that we took this suite. It was a pleasure to have breakfast on the big terasse/balcony, listening to birds . a green oasis in a big big city...
Moving from Brooklyn to Silver Lake and needed a place to stay in the area that wouldn't break the bank. This place is a gem, David and Judith are the sweetest hosts you could ask for. Apartment is in the perfect location for visiting friends in Silver Lake, Echo Park and Los Feliz. And it's walking distance to the reservoir, Silver Lake Coffee and Red Lion Tavern. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to future visitors.
Had a wonderful time. Judith was a gracious hostess. We loved the car. Even though parking was a challenge. Only suggestion was a handrail down the steps would be a nice addition.
This spacious, clean studio is in the perfect location to explore la like a local. It's walking distance to Silver Lake reservoir (great for running), the supermarket, a fruit stand and a tasty Vietnamese restaurant. Silver Lake is the Brooklyn of La-- a fun/trendy/artsy/hipster neighborhood! We found parking in front of the house for 3 of the 4 nights we stayed here, and parked a couple blocks away the last night. Judith was very friendly + offered helpful suggestions for local activities. Loved the large patio and the super fast wifi! Tv/furnishings are a bit out of date, but we didn't mind. Note there are stairs to get to the apartment.
This is a sweet studio and very it's centrally locationed between downdown L.A and Univeral city. Great for 2 people. The bed is great! Thanks for everything Judith you let us have our privacy but was there if we needed anything.
My partner and I stayed here in april and really enjoyed ourselves. The apartment is well appointed, spacious and very comfortable. Silverlake is a really great suburb: cool houses, some good shops and not touristy. We took up the opportunity to also hire the car which turned out to also include GPS. That was pretty essential for getting around la. You will need a car at this location. David and Judith made our stay pleasant and all the correspondence was clear, prompt and friendly. We highly recommend this apartment if you would like a relaxed stay in la in a great area.
We have stayed here on two occasions. The first time was fine. The 2nd time, the landlady has pretty much ensured that I will never rent this place again. Everything about this place is fine but unfortunately, the customer experience was greatly lacking. We originally thought this place would be ok for two toddlers but no longer think so due to the many calls from the land lady. Once, she called because my kid was jumping around. I get it. That's annoying. But if she could hear the jumping, she could also hear us trying to get him to stop. (Which he did.) 2nd, we had a light on in the hallway and she called at 10:45pm about our outside light shining into the neighbors and if we would read, it's all in the manual. I was on the phone with her trying to find the outside light until finally, I realized it was an inside light. When I read the manual, turns out my light was fine after all. She did apologized for the call when checking out (but not for her mistake!). Lastly, the owner gave me different deposit and payment instructions than the landlady was expecting and she said that I should've remembered the instructions from the last time I stayed at this place a year ago. Seriously? I have no problem with her reasons for calling. However the way she spoke was as if I had completely ruined her house or destroyed her property. It's not as if I *wanted* to bother her or upset her. The entire trip, we never felt comfortable as if we could relax or enjoy the place in constant fear of her calling to complain. Did my kid cry in the middle of the night? Step a little too loudly? Talk or laugh in a raised voice? Don't come here if you have kids. Don't come here if you might make any sounds during the normal course of living. Don't stay here unless you want to be constantly wondering if someone is going to call and give you grief in the middle of the night while you are asleep.
The suite is super comfortable and had everything we needed. The only thing I would change is the bed; a double is pretty small to share. The car is very quirky but mechanically sound and super fun to drive; it really grew on me. I would totally stay here again!
Check-in (2pm) The check-in process was smooth and easy. Location The location of this suite was amazingly convenient! It was very close to several of the major highways in la, had a grocery store and CVS nearby, and was located nearby several restaurants, fast food chains, coffee shops, and local places. The location was our favorite thing about the suite! Suite amenities Basically, it's a converted basement of a home designed to be like a studio apartment. There's a small kitchen with several tiny appliances and things (we didn't use any of them, so we're not sure what works and what doesn't) and kitchen items. There was dining room table with 4 chairs near the kitchen. Right by the dining room table was an oversized chair with matching ottoman and (2) chairs from Ikea. The bedroom area featured a double bed with (2) pillows. Parking It's street parking only at this place. Sometimes you might find yourself a block or two away. The owners have their own driveway and then there's another driveway where their rental car is, but no extra space. Rental car is $20 per day. Suite V. Hotel It was a great location but you've got to keep in mind, people live upstairs! You'll hear their TV, you might hear them talk, and throughout the night you're going to hear them move around, walk around, turn on appliances, etc. It wasn't unbearable but it was noticeable - and when on vacation, you wouldn't cut loose the same at your grandparents house as you would a hotel. So, because we're respectful we didn't want to make any noise or disturb them - something you wouldn't have to worry about at a hotel. Check-out They are strict about your 10am check-out. So much so they'll email you, and try to show up as early as possible. It was very off-putting, all so the maid could come early. Suggestions -Spring for a queen bed! It would absolutely fit and would be so much more comfortable than a double bed. -Give your guests more than (2) pillows -Be flexible with check-out time
We felt the picture did not do justice to the apartment. A few minutes drive to Hollywood and other tourist areas it was nonetheless quiet and comfortable. Great to be able to use the outside deck and a good kitchen to cook. The apartment was scrupulously clean and a short stroll to supermarkets, food outlets and several bars/restaurants. We very much enjoyed our stay.
The reason I booked it was the reasonable price and because I wanted to experience la like a local not like a visitor. The studio is clean, comfortable and spacious. It has everything one needs for a short stay in la and the VW behaved excellent for its old age. David and Judith are simply great hosts. Next time I travel to Los angeles, if the studio is free to rent, it'll my first choice.
Pictures on web were good, but actual studio was much much better...clean, convenient and very comfortable.
From the time we requested the booking we were in contact immediately with either David or his mother and there was communication throughout the stay. My wife loved the deck...I enjoyed the spacious bathroom. Cooking facitilities/cookware were a little limited, but we were able to make do and we now know what to expect. The arrangement with the car could be made clearer from the git-go
The studio is a comfortable space, with a large bathroom, adequate kitchen, and large deck with outdoor furniture. The unit could use a coat of paint and I wish it had a queen bed. The full size bed is a limiting factor for a couple.
Excellent location in Silverlake. A very spacious place, clean and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom had everything you need and nothing that you don't. Beautiful terrace. Street parking never a problem in the nine days we spent there.
We were trying on la for size and thought a month's stay would give us an idea of what it would be like to live there on an extended basis. The apartment is part of a duplex and the landlords are on site. It's not fancy, but well thought out, very clean and maintained. The landlords supplied most of the essentials for the kitchen and bathroom. There is a large outside private deck and a fireplace (which we didn't use). Both David and Judith (the landlords) were extremely responsive to any questions or problems that arose. Quiet, walkable to a Ralph's, CVS, bars and the reservoir. Street parking was never a problem. This apartment was ideal for people who want to be in the Silver Lake, Los Feliz area and feel comfortable in a more residential neighborhood. There is nothing touristy about it. If you are looking for a tourist experience, you will have to drive to Hollywood, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, etc. For us, it was a great experience and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced. It was a great alternative to staying in a hotel: the location was central without the noise. The owners were very kind. I would stay here again.
Although we could not always find a parking space right in front of the apartment, we did find spaces several doors away- no problem. Location is very convenient with Starbucks, Ralphs, and CVS within walking distance. We will return.
The car is not new by any means but still brings you places. It was nice to have a convertible but it would be nicer if it had a radio. The studio is in a basement but the rear patio is really nice and intimate. The suite was clean and the hosts were friendly and respectful. If you want to visit la, the location is really good.
The property was in a nice secluded spot within close distance to the sights, but nicely removed from too much commotion. The hosts, who live above, were extremely nice and accommodating, and it was fun having a convertible to drive around town in. Staying here definitely contributed to a great trip overall.
Very nice little condo. Big nice deck that I did not unfortunately get to use. The bed was super comfortable and the place was very clean. Parking was a bit hard but otherwise I would definitely come back here.
We stayed for one week for our wedding. Price was well within reason. The studio had everything we needed, to included extra supplies. A blow up mattress was provided for staying guest. The huge deck was perfect for kicking back and relaxing. Amazingly tall trees stretched up giving us privacy. The location was perfect providing us quick access to downtown and everywhere else. Parking was limited however we managed with no issues. Neighborhood was safe and quiet. Judy was welcoming and understanding. Thank you for the nice congratulation card.
Really great place. Completely safe neighborhood. The owner was out of town, but took care of everything via email and his mother helped with the check-in. 5 minutes from the heart of sliver lake, and 5 minutes from Los Feliz Village. My local friends came over and loved it too.
The studio was very roomy, comfortable, clean and the owner was very nice. The car was a good choice and got us around with no problems.
The owner is so nice. Everything is ok. There are supermarket and restaurant in 400 meters. My daughter said that it was a lovely secret house.
Above and beyond. David went out of his way to make my stay feel like home. Quiet and comfortable.
I enjoyed my stay extensively and would highly recommend this as an alternative to a hotel -- especially if you have family or friends living in Silver Lake or Echo Park! I described it to friends as a "bed and breakfast" without the breakfast. The only (very minor) drawbacks were that the phone rang several times (seeming to be someone trying to fax something?), and in an otherwise well-equipped kitchen for essentials (dishes, silverware, pots & pans, electric kettle, salt and pepper...) there was no sugar that I could find which kind of surprised me. I only add these things in case the owners read this and care to address these very minor issues. They certainly weren't worth complaining about at the time. Overall my stay was excellent!!!
I was really happy. It was an awesome location close to West Hollywood. Property was clean and comfortable. Beautiful kitchen and cosy living room. Lots of bar and restaurant close by.
