About Josh Johnson

Hi there! Welcome to Los Angeles! I have lived in the Silver Lake area of LA for 12 years. I own two houses on one lot. I occupy the back house, and rent out the front cottage. I also have a home in Palm Springs and love to travel and eat. Hope to welcome you soon! I have had many repeat guest stay over the years and I am lucky to call them friends...

Josh Johnson purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Josh Johnson chose Los Angeles area

Silver Lake has it all. It is one of the most diverse areas of Los Angeles. As you all probably know, LA is not really a 'walking' town. But this area of Sunset Junction is truly walkable....walkable to bars, restaurants, Farmers market, gym, pharmacy, dry cleaners, shops. We will always have a house in Silver Lake.

What makes this cottage unique

The second we saw these houses, we knew they were for us. The former owner, Isaac, was a master carpenter and cabinet maker, and we (and now you!) can reap the benefits of his amazing handiwork. What he did with the interior is truly a model of how to utilize a small space into a fabulous living space. Everything is thought out from storage to convenience, from the beautiful hardwood floors, to the adorable blue tiles in the bathroom. The walk-in closet and built-in dresser in the master bedroom is a huge plus. Add to that a PRIVATE yard. There are few places in LA that can boast a private front yard with a dining terrace. It is also so quiet. You would never know that the 101 Freeway and Sunset Blvd. are seconds away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Truly a lovely and comfortable cottage with a friendly and attentive host.

  • 5 of 5

Josh's cottage was a beautiful space in the city. My family felt extremely comfortable and at home in this cottage with a nicely updated interior. It had everything we needed to enjoy our long weekend stay in Los Angeles. I recommend staying here to anyone looking to visit Los Angeles.

Such an amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I am a travel nurse so I needed a place to stay for a little over 3 months-- and be able to call home. Josh's place was exactly that. By far one of the nicest places I've stayed in before. Josh couldn't have been more helpful and was always easy to contact when and if I needed anything. This place surpassed all of my expectations. For being a small cottage, it had more than enough room, very spacious, everything updated and kept up very well. In addition to the actual place being amazing, the location was great as well! Silverlake is such a great area with so many awesome places to eat, shop or drink. Just steps away from Sunset, not far from downtown, and the surrounding neighborhoods (Echo Park, Los Feliz) are some of the best in LA in my opinion. I would venture out and travel around and out of LA and Josh always had the best recommendations-- so helpful! Parking is on street, but I never had any issues finding a spot either right in front of the house or very nearby. There is honestly nothing negative I could say about anything. Stay here if you can!

  • 5 of 5

Josh was amazing! So accommodating, helpful and friendly. He made my stay a breeze and his place is so perfect. It's such a cute house with everything you could need in such an ideal location. I was here for a long stay and it really felt like a comfy little home for me while I was there. I can't say enough good things about Josh and his place. It was a really great experience and I highly recommend staying here!
