The Space

Welcome to the Elevado House! This classic 1925 Spanish-style home provides a peaceful setting in the heart of Silver Lake, perfect for an urban retreat. The contemporary furnishings complement the spacious rooms. Cook great meals in the large, modern kitchen with family and friends. Open up all the doors in the living room, dine al fresco on the patio with your favorite wine. The stereo is wired all over the house which makes the music question easy. And if it's a quiet corner that you're looking for, steal yourself away to one of the numerous private outdoor spaces.

In Spanish they say, "Bebo cuando tengo ocasion, y a veces cuando no tengo ninguna ocasion," I drink when I have occasion, and sometimes when I have no occasion.

The Neighborhood

Silver Lake is full of fun, modern and hip shops and restaurants. Sunset Junction is a favorite spot of locals to grab delicious coffee at Intelligentsia, amazing spices for cooking at Spice Station, and refreshing gelato at Pazzo. Enjoy long walks though Silver Lake, one of Los Angeles' prettiest neighborhoods with beautiful houses from the 1920s through 1960s set on garden and tree-lined hilly street. Silver Lake is right next to the Griffith Observatory and Park, featuring a planetarium and museum, stunning views of all of Los Angeles, and numerous hiking trails. It's a great place to spend the day, bring a picnic and stay for the sunset. Silver Lake is adjacent to Downtown LA, full of world-class museums, sites, shopping and dining, and also Hollywood, with many lots of fun for visitors. Located in Central Los Angeles, we are about 30-45 driving from West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Venice Beach and many of the attractions of the west side of LA.

Getting around

The Elevado House has one parking space for a small car, and plenty of safe street parking. The house is close to many bus lines, and 15 min by bus / 30 min walking from the Los Angeles Metro (Subway) Red Line at Vermont and Santa Monica. The house is 30 min to 1 hour from Los Angeles International Airport by car, depending on traffic.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This house is exactly as described in listing. It's beautiful, well equipped with anything you might need, and Michael provides guests with ample information about the house and neighborhood. The only problem we had was parking. Our car did not fit in the tight space in the drive way without blocking the sidewalk and we had to find street parking which can be difficult. Unfortunately, we did receive a parking ticket one night :(

    All factors considered, I'd definitely stay at Michael's again. It's in a good location, has plenty of room for dinner parties, great air conditioning and is surprisingly serene considering it's just off sunset blvd.

  • The house was as clean, comfortable, and well outfitted as it looked in the pictures and as I had read in previous reviews. Two couples shared this space comfortably for a long weekend and enjoyed the close proximity (read: walking distance,) to restaurants, coffee, a grocery store, and more. The patio space and hammock felt private and was a great second living space for our stay. When we were not out, we were even able to watch a few World Cup games thanks to the direct TV and wifi at the house. This house has it all. The check out process was a breeze and I would certainly stay here again.

  • My friends and I had a great time at Michael's place. It's a lovely space with comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and perfect amenities - we particularly liked the malin + goetz toiletries. The best parts though are the patios and the location. For a group of friends who don't get to see each other very often, it was wonderful to be able to eat at home and catch up. The place is set up to be very comfortable and user friendly - it was easy to cook, do laundry, whatever we needed. The location is amazing too. Being able to go get coffee or a meal without getting in the car changes my whole view of LA. Definitely recommend.

  • Michael's house is beautiful and walking distance from from shops and restaurants. Patio was perfect for drinking a glass of wine in the sun. Beds were super comfortable. It was the ideal place for staying in LA with a couple of my girlfriends and I would totally stay at his place again next time I'm in town. Great experience!

  • Our experience at the Elevado House was perfect. Obviously the hosts run this as a professional Airbnb and it shows--the directions for arrival were detailed and clear, and there (email hidden) to the house and neighborhood sitting right by the door. The house is pretty spectacular, especially the two patios on a sunny day. Beds are very comfy, maybe a bit tight for 5 people (one of us slept on the big couch). Everything provided--kitchen is well stocked with tools and spices, super nice shampoo/body wash/conditioner from Malin & Goetz, tons of towels, etc.
    It's up a steep hill, which we didn't mind, but might be difficult for those who want to walk a lot and have issues with hills (take the secret staircase down to street level!). There are lots of great restaurants and bars walking distance. Parking was super easy on the street, if you have a car, and it's a super safe neighborhood.

  • What a delightful place to stay. Great location near some cool, relaxed neighborhoods (Silver Lake, Los Feliz) and easy access to the hills and Griffith Park. The terrace is perfect for an evening grill. The attention to detail inside is great, and the two generous sized rooms are perfect for egalitarian sharing!

  • Group of 6, we had a great time. Nice neighborhood and convenience location for getting around. 1 shower, but 2 bathrooms so wasn't too crazy getting ready. Would stay again and recommend to others.
