Come and go as you please, day or night! You have a private and secluded access, sometimes greeted by our shepherd dog, Sheba, who doesn't take tips.
We provide all towels, bedding, cookware and utensils and ask that upon checkout, dirty laundry is put in a pile by the door and dishes are at least rinsed. We love dogs, yet please keep off bedding (hopefully provide your own special bed?) and please try not to leave your beloved pet in the cottage alone for more than a couple of hours. We can help provide an extra water or food bowl and/or baggies.
Also, for longer stays with pets, please give a once over with broom or vacuum (provided) every few days to keep hair from matting and affecting the allergy-prone. We appreciate all of your respectful consideration.
Please don't hesitate to call us or knock on our door if you have any needs.

Thanks so much for choosing us and being our guests. We are committed to making your stay as comfortable and happy as possible. Best with all you do!
I really enjoyed my stay here. It was perfect for me. I come down to la monthly and this was the perfect little space I needed. Private, clean and cute. I hope to stay here again.
Also Darrel was great at responding to anything I needed! Thanks for having me!
Darrell was a great host and the location of the cottage was perfect, lots to walk to and enjoy.
Very cozy cottage nearby restaurants and shops on Sunset boulevard. Really enjoyed the neighborhood
The bottle of wine that Darrell provided upon arrival was the perfect touch to make me feel welcome. Darrell was always accommodating, helpful, and great with communication. Silverlake is a very cool area to visit in Los Angeles. The hills are incredibly scenic and a ton of fun to explore. The cottage is in very close proximity to restaurants and shops in the heart of Silverlake.
Darrel's place is in a great location with lovely outdoor patios, the cuddliest dog called Sheeba and a very comfortable alcove bed. Although seems small, it was really all we needed and Darrel was really helpful with everything. Would definetly stay here again. Oh and street parking is super super easy!!!!
The cottage was very clean, cute, and comfortable. Darrell was extremely responsive over text message and facilitated the perfect timing of our arrival. My boyfriend and I loved the Silverlake neighborhood, and the house felt for the time like a home away from home. Parking was extremely convenient as well. The place certainly lives up to the post online, would definitely recommend!
