Charming & Delightful Silver Lake 1 Bdr+ Retreat in 1930's Spanish Style Home

Minimum Stay

About the property

1 Bedroom * 1 Bathroom * Sleeps 4

Awaken with excited anticipation in our 1930's Spanish-style home 1 BDR+ retreat. Situated down the block from the always vibrant & walkable Sunset Junction, SilverLake's The Red Door has that warm, loving welcome of an old friend with all the charm of modern day.

Our freshly renovated & newly furnished private sanctuary includes original hardwood flooring throughout a sizable living room. Here you can enjoy HD-TV with cable & HBO, Internet access, write a letter at your own work desk or just curl up on the daybed among the “birch trees” while getting relaxedly lost in a book. Perhaps, after turning on your music at the iPod dock & radio, you may want to saunter into the kitchen/4 seated dining area where black with white speckled granite kitchen counters, modern kitchen appliances, & all the essential cooking implements await your inner chef to reveal him/herself. Here is where that family recipe can be made with all the fresh ingredients you bought that morning at our Saturday local farmer's market. Finally, when the day has filled your heart & imagination with all that Los Angeles has to offer, you ready yourself for the night in your full marble-floored bathroom. Make your way to the upstairs bedroom equipped with a queen sized bed that sleeps two, a view of the Hollywood Sign, a brand new AC/heater, & a full length mirror. Open a few of your 360 degree windows for a cross-breeze and wave goodnight to the beautifully lit Griffith Observatory.

Choose a day of leisure or one of inspired work -it's up to you!

About Douglas & Deidrie

We are both entertainment professionals having moved from the east coast over a decade ago to pursue our dreams. In the act of doing so, we found each other and so glad we did! Since then, we have built our home on a foundation of deep gratitude, the celebration of the good things in life, and mutual respect.

Douglas & Deidrie purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Douglas & Deidrie chose Los Angeles area

Since we live in the rear unit, we needed a place that said home, warmth, & possibility. We found all those qualities and more! In addition, we have always loved Silver Lake for it's diversity of people, restaurants, and cultural offerings. Where else can you encounter a community with an array of creative, artistic, and business-minded individuals?

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with Deidre and Douglas's oasis! The photos do not do the apartment justice - all the small touches that make this a true home away from home.

The location is fantastic. If you love great coffee and food then this is the location as there are so many great places 5 mins from the apartment.

We hope that we can come back soon and enjoy the accommodation and local area again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay. I'm

Feel right at home! Everything you may need is here...

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this charming house. Douglas and Deirdre are the perfect hosts making sure everything is taken care of. The house is set up so that you don't miss any of the comforts of home. Great bed and nice shower, fully stacked kitchen, spacious and sunny living room and nice front balcony where we enjoyed our coffee every morning. Fantastic location in Silverlake. A block or two from great coffee shops and restaurants. We would love to come back.

BEAUTIFUL Home , Wonderful hosts and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house in Silver Lake! Our hosts were very prompt to reply to our initial enquiry and maintained contact from there on which is very important to us. The house is a beautiful 1930;s house that is immpecable with everything you could need. It has a charming little deck on the front for morning coffee. The location is great, it is a short walk to coffee shops, some fantastic restaurants, juice bars, etc. We would highly reccommend this house to anyone planning a trip to this area, we definetly will return to it the next time we visit L.A.

Personality Plus!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 comes to CA from WI about twice a year but this was the first time staying in LA County. Staying here instead of in a hotel felt great. The house is beautiful, had everything we needed and is just as it appears on the website. Looking out the bedroom window at Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood sign was pretty cool. Deidre and Doug were great hosts. We loved being so centrally located to all sorts of great places like the LaBrea Tarpits and close to family in Eagle Rock/Pasadena area. I want to come back again and try all the restaurants in the area. My kids and I enjoyed getting crepes at the nearby Farmer's market on Saturday. Much to our surprise, getting a parking spot was never a problem. Coming home at the end of the day to a residential area was so much more relaxing as well. We hope to stay again on another visit.

The best place to stay in LA!! A real 'home away from home'

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Doug and Deirdre's beautiful mews house with my 3 children during the Easter break in 2015 whilst visiting family in LA. Silver Lake is a rare find with fantastic cafes, restaurants and shops within walking distance not to mention a real sense of community. We loved every second of our holiday and adored coming home each evening to the comfort and peace of The Red Door after busy days out sightseeing, shopping and sending time with Family. I couldn't recommend it enough. We will definitely be back!

No place like home except at Doug and Deidre's!!!

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to shopping, hiking, cool cafe's, bars, restaurants, artisanal spice stores, you name it! The neighborhood is quiet and still very lively. We would recommend this clean, spacious house to anyone. We were there to nest with our 5 month old baby girl. Doug and Deidre were extremely helpful with everything even getting from the airport. The moment we walked into the house, we were first surprised at how big it is. The photos make it look smaller. We were very happy with the size and location. Doug and Deidre were very accommodating. Anything we needed, we had a response within minutes. They were always handy but very respectful of our privacy. Very flexible renters. All of the appliances are new and work well. I cooked meals 3/4 of the time and we ate breakfast on the stoop (very Canadian of us) each morning - then ate out at delicious restaurants walking distance from the house the rest of the time. TV, internet, and everything was tip top. My wife and daughter especially loved the super sunny bedroom with a view of the Hollywood sign - there are at least two windows on each wall.

We were really sad to leave. It really felt like home to us!
