About the property

2 Bed + office,1 Bath, Prime Silverlake/ Echo Park Vintage House

Built in 1908, this vintage house is a very special furnished 2 bedroom, plus den/office. 1 bath, located in Silverlake/ Echo Park.

Huge fenced in grass yard, that runs along one side of the house. Park car next to front porch behind rolling fence. There are many unique features such as custom French mahogany doors through out. Living room and bedrooms have doors to a very private mahogany side deck (8 feet x 40 feet) which surrounds 80 year old yucca trees, which has been a wonderful place to entertain year round...a sweet Shangri-La to enjoy breakfast or just relax. Dining room is bright with French windows, and wainscoting, with dining table for six people. Retro-kitchen is fully loaded/ stocked kitchen which has vintage stove, dishwasher, butcher block. Mud room off kitchen has washer, dryer, and fridge with back door entrance. The front porch has a nice view of Palm lined street....that's a great place to have a cup-of-joe! The bedrooms each have ceiling fans and French doors, most days there is a nice breeze that flows through. A queen bed in each room that also enjoy side deck. Wood flooring throughout, except for office/ den which has a dark carpet. It is currently being used as an office/ lunge. I will include pictures with a cot included. Vintage bathroom is located between both bedrooms includes bath/ shower combo.

This house may not be suitable for toddlers, babies are okay but those just learning to walk may have a difficult time with porch steps and yard that is not level with the house ( for viewing). We welcome children but want to be clear about the steps or safety reasons.

One of the best things about the house is that you really feel like you’ve left the city, even though you are walking distance to great food/cafes/yoga, and all the eclectic options surrounding the neighborhood, a 15-20 minute walk to the Silverlake Reservoir or to Echo Park Lake for a paddle boat ride. No need to get in a car to take an early morning yoga class at Urth or Bar Method( 5 min), and then stroll to Silverlake Juice or Moon Juice afterwards. Want to have a drink without worrying about driving, you can hit or Los Globos, Hungry Crow in Silverlake or head towards Echo Park ( 12 minute walk) and check out Wine For The People, The Echo, Elf Vegan Cafe for nighttime fun. The Metro bus stop is a few minutes to Sunset Blvd. you can take bus east for Metro Station ( direct) or take it west and end up on Pacific Coast Highway,at the beach.

This house holds many beautiful memories for our family, we hated moving but our family of six has outgrown it for good.

About Tnah Di Donato

Mario has been an actor here in Hollywood for nearly 25 years, and I have been in the entertainment industry for most of my life. We are a very renaissance type family raising three thundering teens and one 20 year old Singer Song writer with Columbia Records. Mario and I collaborate on a few ventures together which include Bella Faccia Foto ( bellafacciafoto.com), a socially responsible coffee roasting company called Belli Fratelli ( Good Brother's In Italian) Coffee Roasters (bellifratelliroasters.com), which we hope to grow and pass down to our sons. Tnah traded her title as Hollywood Agent for Postpartum Mother Roasting + ceremonialist, holding space in ceremony/ woman's retreats and serving mothers here in Los Angeles with The Sacred Living Movement ( asacredpassage.com).

We recently sold our cafe Steampunk Coffee Bar and Kitchen , which was known for the best waffle and fried chicken in the San Fernando Valley, but still continue to work with Vito's Pizza ( www.vitopizza.com) located in West Hollywood, Santa Monica and soon to open in Downtown Los Angeles. This pizzeria was opened by us but is our bother Vito's joint, and truly one of the best pizza's in Los Angeles.

We absolutely put all our love into each venture we believe in and hope that our reviews speak to the level of care and attention we provide to our guests while staying at Vintage Reservoir.

Tnah Di Donato purchased this house in 2000

Why Tnah Di Donato chose Los Angeles area

This home holds our heart, it was the first home we manifested in our early 30's. We had a vision of what we wanted for our family and it was exactly what we were looking for! We purchased this home during a very busy market, and managed to be the chosen family out of 15 other offers. We birthed three of our sons in a water pool in the living room. We made so many little character improvements which give the home so much charm. It was very hard to leave, but with four sons and one bathroom we would have either had to do some more major remodeling and it still would not have addressed the right schools for our boys which were not available in our community at the time we needed.

We had the house occupied by four tenants after we left, each one of those four couples either got married or pregnant while staying in our home, so it speaks to the love that fills this sweet house.

A week was spent in the house as I was getting it ready for listing, so I knew first hand what was needed to make it feel like a home and not a vacation rental. Everything was really thought through in every way unlike many of vacation rentals I have stayed in! Soft cotton bedding, every cooking utensil you could think of to make yummy meals, much consideration went into decor.

Silverlake is a very diverse community! While the hipsters have infiltrated these lands, there is still a big mix of the original Los Angelino population which include Philipinos and Mexicans, this is what adds the color to our community! Our property itself is like a Shangri-La within the urban city. The house is perched up off the ground and enclosed for privacy, but within walking distance to Sunset Blvd. where you can walk in either direction to find an array of cool food joints and boutiques.

What makes this house unique

When describing this home I like to share that this is a house of pure love and creativity. We really seem to attract a load of iincredibly talented ndustry peeps, which have included Broadway performers coming through to work at Pantages + Dorothy Chandler, (both within close proximity to the house.) Actors, writers, singer - song writers, who want the peace of our home, safety and privacy while being in the pulse of town.

The owner was very helpful, providing decorations for the holiday and a welcome package. We found the house clean and comfortable, in a great location. The house provided everything we needed.

Beautiful house with private front yard in the heart of Silverlake

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about Tnah and her beautiful home. Tnah went to of her way to help me, my wife, and my pets when we needed somewhere to stay for a month at the last second.

Her property is spacious and homey with a private, fenced in yard and includes a a laundry room with washer and dryer. A bag of her family's fresh roasted coffee beans are waiting for you to enjoy as well.

Tnah was always readily available to assist with any questions, but was never in the way, making the house truly feel like your own personal home while you stay there. The inside is well designed and beautifully decorated. If I could have moved in permanently I would have.

The property is within walking distance to several restaurants and just blocks away from everything Silverlake has to offer.

I can't thank Tnah enough for her hospitality and will definitely boom here again if I'm ever looking for somewhere to stay on the area.

Thanks Tnah!

A Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 colleagues stayed here while working in the downtown LA area. I really can't say enough good things about our experience. The location was a short commute to the downtown area, walking distance to Silver Lake, communication was excellent with Tnah, home was very comfortable, goodies in the fridge upon arrival. Definitely will recommend to others. Thanks for the hospitality!

Perfect cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

I came in from Miami for a Yoga convention and stayed for a couple of months. Mystay was peaceful while in the home. Everything was so close and I didn't need a car your stay. Both my training and nighttime fun were easily accessed by public transport and Uber. I loved jogging Echo Park Lake daily and the owners of the house were a pleasure to communicate with and accomidating to my needs. They were met with speed and great care.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. So weirder that the dates say May 6th, I know you stayed awhile and this date does not reflect that- likely a Mercury Retrograde glitch, none the less I just want to thank you for taking such great care of our home and treating it with such love. We welcome you back anytime!

great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We often stayed in L.A., this was the first time for us in Silver Lake. The house was great, very quiet, perfect for us, we stayed one month. Communication with Tnah, the owner, was fast, whenever we had something, she helped immediately. we´ll come back! We also liked Silver Lake a lot, you can walk to many restaurants and cafes.

Car: not necessary

Fantastic location! A short stroll to El Cafecito Organico and only a few blocks from a popular pocket of hot spots like Pho cafe, Gobi Mongolian BBQ, Moon Juice, Thirsty Crow, Urth Yoga, Bar Method, Dusty's, Lark Cake Shop and The Food Lab where they sell the BEST ice cream sandwiches! No need for guilt after that refreshing treat, the Silver Lake Reservoir and Echo Park is only a mile away! Talk about convenience! If you want to go out at night and not have to get in the car walk to The Echo, Mohawk Bend to the east, Los Globas night club and Silverlake Lounge, Stella to the west... All walking distance!
