Overview

About the property

Duplex, 2 Bedrooms + Sofabed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1 - 6)

Built in 1919 and meticulously restored in 2011, this elegant duplex abounds with vintage style and charm. One of the first homes to be built on the block, the view of Los Feliz and the many authentic period details are not to be missed.

This listing is for the top floor (2 BR/1BA). If you need more room, see VRBO #412795 for the lower apartment, and/or VRBO #303778 for our nearby cottage.

Craftsman windows span the entire width of the building, giving you straight-arrow views of the Hollywood sign and the Observatory. The ceilings are 10 feet high with large windows in every room. The kitchen is farmhouse style, with a restored antique stove, original cabinetry, and a salvaged wood bar. The bathroom has a full size tub and plenty of space. Outside, you have your own deck with built-in benches and a small front yard that is secure and private, opening out to Griffith Park Blvd, just 2 blocks north of Sunset Junction in Silverlake.

Sunset Junction is a neighborhood hub, with Cafe Stella and Intelligentsia coffee, as well as a boutique called Driftwood, the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, and the Silverlake Cheese store. Even closer is Cafe Casbah, Forage, Pazzo Gelato, Naturewell, and Vacation Vinyl records. We have the Silverlake Farmer's market once a week, right around the corner. There is a wealth of great boutiques, restaurants, and bars within an easy (slight downhill) 5 minute walk from the building.

For kids, there is Shane's Inspiration, pony rides, a carousel, the Zoo, and the Museum of the West just 2.2 miles from the building in Griffith Park.

About Robin Wallace and Tim Snowber

We began restoring buildings in Silverlake in 1997, but it's been a lifelong passion. Tim has a background in set decorating and woodworking. Robin has a background in Art Direction and loves gardening. We use salvaged/eco-friendly building materials, antique furnishings, and green cleaning products whenever possible.

We have many years of experience as landlords and hosts, and are known for being responsive, service-minded, and reasonable with pricing and management.

Why Robin Wallace and Tim Snowber chose Los Angeles area

We love this part of Silver Lake because we can walk almost everywhere we need to go, but when we need to drive, the 5, 101, 110, and 134 freeways are very close by. We've always loved the trees, the architecture, and the neighborhood feel of Silver Lake.

What makes this apartment unique

There's an innate sense of calm in this building, maybe because it's held up for almost 100 years. We love the view, the convenience, and the proximity to the 'flow' of the city. It makes for great work and family trips. Whether you are interested in architecture, sightseeing, music, food, wine, artisan boutiques, or the outdoors, Silver Lake has all of this and more to offer... we love this building in particular because it's so central and it has great character and style.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love this house! We had an amazing experience, and would definitely stay again. Robin is fabulous! We loved the treats & wine she had left for us. Great details, comfy bed, hospitable host, we couldn't ask for more!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Our three night stay was great, very clean and well supplied. I was afraid I would have to climb a lot of steps but found it was at street level with easy access. It has a great view out of the glassed in sun room. Only wished there was a dish pan and soap to wash the dishes. Otherwise everything was perfect. I would stay there again.

Cute craftsman with a lot of charm

  • 3 of 5

House was very clean, kitchen was well stocked.

Parking was hit and miss.

House could use some more towels if you have more than two people staying or a longer stay you will need to do laundry.

Adorable and Well Located

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this charming home. The decor was spot on to the era of the home. It was everything we needed for a our quick 2 night stay. The owner was extremely helpful in accommodating us with a pack-n-play, high chair and a couple of boxes of toys for our little guy to play with.

It's a couple of blocks from Sunset Blvd which gave us a lot of restaurants within walking distance. The wifi worked perfectly (which was important for my hubby!) and the parking was easy.

Overall a peaceful stay with nothing to complain about! (Except the bathroom soap smelled a little too organic..haha). I highly recommend booking this home for your next visit!

Better Than Advertised - Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has experienced many VRBO rentals - inside and outside of the U.S. - over the last 7 years. We all agreed that this was hands down at the top of our list! We rented the 2BR for 5 days, and while the pictures you see are accurate, they actually don't do it justice. This craftsman is roomier, cleaner, and more practical than the photos indicate. Simply put, it's a fantastic "base camp" for exploring most of the legendary spots in and around L.A. We are a family of four, including two teenage girls, and never did we feel that the home was anything but the right fit for us. As we packed up and got ready to head home, we were somewhat surprised because none of us could identify anything to "complain about" with regard to the house. That was a first for us! The owners were responsive and helpful throughout the process and during our stay, and we would definitely look to rent from them again if we make it back to L.A. Cannot recommend this place enough - don't hesitate grab it if you can!

Location

Car: not necessary

This property is 2 blocks from Sunset Junction with all of the cafes, restaurants and boutiques, and 2 miles from Griffith Park, with hiking trails, horseback riding, the Zoo, the Observatory, the Autry Museum, Travel Town, the Carousel, and Shane's Inspiration. Loads of fun for everyone. It's also nearby Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock House in Barnsdall Park, MOCA, Disney Hall, The Echo/Echoplex and all that Echo Park has to offer. Plus all of the great things Hollywood has to offer: Universal Studios, the Walk of Fame, Arclight Cinema and Amoeba Music. As well as DTLA (downtown LA): Disney Hall, Museum of Contemporary Art, the Broad Museum, newly re-furbished Cliftons restaurant and the Grand Central Markey. Lots to look forward to!
