Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Silver Lake - 2BR Cape Cod

Walk 2 Blocks to Sunset Junction's Cafes and Shops Or Stay And Enjoy The View!

Built in 1923, remodeled in 2013, and bursting with vintage details, this street level (but upper floor) apartment is 2 blocks from all of the restaurants and boutiques of Sunset Junction. Views of the Hollywood Sign and Griffith Park Observatory are yours to enjoy from the old fashioned sun porch off the master bedroom. The eclectic, cabin-like look and feel has all the comforts you would want in a city apartment, including a large flat screen TV, in-unit washer/dryer, full dining room setup, full bath, and a nice -sized kitchen. We also have a VERY easy check-in process, with the key easily accessible via lockbox. If you appreciate design, you will enjoy discovering all of the little vintage touches, such as the antique doorknobs-turned-coat rack, the suitcase end table, and the french iron bistro table.

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 history and photography. 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.

Robin Wallace and Tim Snowber purchased this apartment in 2003

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. This building has a 'Tales of the City' vibe to it, which we have worked hard to preserve.

What makes this apartment unique

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 unit in particular because it has the convenience of a street level unit with the benefits of top-floor views of the city and hills.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is super cute and everything was really easy from the beginning with Robin and Tim. They will answer your questions immediately. The best thing in my opinion is the location, you are just next, 5 minutes walking distance, to a really nice area of cafes, shops and restaurants, which is not easy to find in LA. Silver Lake in general is very central to everything. We are a group of 4 friends from Amsterdam and we liked being in a place where we could get everywhere quickly.

Great apartment with charming vintage feel and updated amenities.

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming property in a great location. The place has an old-time feel while still offering modern amenities like central air conditioning. We especially liked the enclosed porch off the back bedroom, from which you can see the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory. And the washer and dryer--what a luxury. Parking was easy, and lots of essential services (restaurants and bars!) are within walking distance. We highly recommend this property.

Cute home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious and clean two bed rooms house in Sliver Lake. It is very close driving distance to West Hollywood, where we went to The Comedy Store. And also easy to get to from the Dodger Stadium. We had a very fun weekend in LA. Thank you for hosting us.

Great place, great location, great stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Tim and Robin's Silverlake cottage, we walked through the gate, and it was like walking into a perfect Silverlake hideaway.

The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was remodeled nicely and the view from the sunporch was incredible. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Favorite vacation rental in LA

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Thanksgiving weekend this year and had an amazing time. We love this property! It is truly a home away from home for us. We first stayed here in March for the LA Marathon. Robin was super helpful and very easy to get a hold of whenever we had questions. She brought children's books for our kids, a nice welcoming gesture. The house has a nice layout with everything you could need for cooking and feeling at home. Comfy beds, TV and movies to enjoy after kids go to bed. The back enclosed porch with views of surrounding hills and the Hollywood sign is a neat feature. Other visitors were friendly as well and our daughter still talks about a friend she met and played with there.

After staying in March, we came back for one night as we were passing through LA on a road trip just about a month later. Then this fall we decided to spend Thanksgiving in LA. (We live in San Diego.) We had to move rentals in the middle of our trip, a prearranged arrangement due to availability issues and Robin made sure that we had access to put our stuff in the new place before we went exploring for the day. She also let us check in early to one of the rentals at the beginning (a very cute cozy studio/1 bedroom on the ground floor) which was really nice since it was Thanksgiving Day.

One of the other highlights of this rental is the proximity (perfect distance of about 2-3 blocks) walking to many cafes, restaurants, and other retail shops on Sunset. We enjoyed a Mexican place on the corner of Griffith Park Blvd. and Sunset for dinner, an Asian restaurant called Pine and Crane, a bagel/coffee shop, a smoothie shop, a cheese shop, and an ice cream shop. There is even a small little market with fresh produce and other groceries in the same commercial area. We also loved being close to Griffith Park, downtown, and all the various museums LA has to offer.

We'd definitely recommend staying at this rental!

nice street level apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this great apartment over Thanksgiving weekend when we came to visit our daughter who has a small place in Los Felix. The apartment is accurately pictured. It was clean, well-maintained and quiet. The owners make it very easy to check in and out. We cooked our Thanksgiving meal there and had all the necessary pots, utensils, dishes, etc. The kitchen and dining area are quite large enough for 6 people. We would definitely stay here again and we would recommend this place without hesitation.

This property is 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 Amoeba in Hollywood. Lots to look forward to.
