About Gisele Plouffe

Hi Everyone! I am proud to say I was born and raised in this lovely city of Los Angeles. One of the few Natives you will meet. My husband and I love hosting and take pride in what we do. As a local real estate agent, this is right up my alley!

Gisele Plouffe purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Gisele Plouffe chose Los Angeles area

This is a great property because of its location as well as how cool it is! You can walk into the "village" area of Silver Lake on your way around the lake or to dog park. The other direction is Sunset Blvd. with all of its offerings. This is a great private house, with cafe lit courtyards. It is like a home away from home. Completely quiet and secluded.

What makes this cottage unique

The exterior night lighting makes it all worth it hear. There are cafe lit ivy covered courtyards surrounding the home.

A magical stay in a perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Gisele's cottage was a perfect home base for my family as we visited Los Angeles. Silver Lake is a beautiful neighborhood. All types of breakfast, lunch, and supper options were within walking distance, as were wonderful shops and a playground, among other things. The cottage is delightful and cozy, and the patio out back provided a good spot for our small children to safely play outside. We look forward to visiting Los Angeles again, and will definitely stay here again if it is available.

Great location, quiet with lovely patio

  • 3 of 5

Thanks for the lovely night in this cute guest house. Would definitely come back and stay. Will share my pros and cons below but recommend!

The owner was extremely open to working with me and my arrival time and it was appreciated. The cottage was as described - behind a Mediterranean house with its own driveway and parking spot! I didn't have car but can imagine this would be a huge draw. Has everything you could need - towels, hair dryer, dishes, cookware, coffee pot, creamers, sugar and even 2 bottles of water and fresh flowers! Full-sized fridge and range. Bed, as mentioned by others is so comfortable. Patio is great for breakfast or cocktails - private and quiet. Beautiful California vegetation to see. I stayed on my own and, as a woman, was wondering if I'd feel safe. I did and was glad to see the house in front was occupied as, at first, I thought it was abandoned. Location is great - a few blocks to great vintage furniture stores and great cafe called lamille. A few blocks the other way to sunset, lots of restaurants, bars, stores - particularly local and silver lake ramen - yum!!!

A few drawbacks to mention - the floor is concrete - maybe that's common in LA but I was surprised as it seemed this used to be a garage. Drain in tub was a little slow - no problem on my own but wondered if more than one person took a shower. Also a chameleon in the bathroom - is that a plus or draw back? Not sure. Inside cottage - very quiet and calm. On the patio, you can hear cars from street but pretty muffled. The house in front is delapitated and a few more blocks away there is what appears to be a homeless encampment though I never walked that far. Definitely a neighborhood in transition but feels very safe and friendly.

Will come back!

Two nights in February

  • 5 of 5

Gisele always does a great job making you feel like you are a private guest in a home. Fresh flowers and a hand written note were there on arrival as well as coffee basics to make the first morning a breeze. The location of this cottage is extremely convenient for me to visit our son in the Echo Park area; and is walking distance to great food in both directions. (Lamill coffee to the right for breakfast.) The driveway is a little hairy but manageable once you get in. Private laundry was awesome and the bed was super comfy. Outdoor space is nice (needs to be cleaned up a little) and it is remarkably quiet despite the fact it is on a busy street. Will come back again for sure. Thanks, Gisele.

A lovely little cottage conveniently located in Silver Lake.

  • 4 of 5

Had everything we needed and was quiet. Very comfortable king size bed. The owner was helpful and welcoming. Loved the location and private outside area. Nice touches like fresh flowers set out when we arrived.

Charming little house with terrific private yard

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. Big well supplied bathroom and kitchen, gorgeous decor throughout and a wonderful private little yard and deck out back. All nestled right in artsy Silver Lake. Giselle the property manager was easy to work with and answered all our Qs. Would come again for sure when back in LA.

Well equipped private quiet cottage centrally located.

  • 4 of 5

We were impressed by how quiet this cottage was despite being located in the city and on a busy street. It was very pet friendly. The bedroom was cozy and the bed very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to prepare breakfast. It was in waking distance to many good restaurants. We also enjoyed waking in the neighbourhood and looking at the homes and the views from some of the hillier streets. Otherwise driving around greater LA was easy from this central location especially to Hollywood, echo park and downtown. Our full sized truck did not fit in the driveway but we were always able to find street parking within a 5-10 minute walk.
