Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Peter's house was perfect for myself and two friends. It was beautiful and well stocked. He even left us wine! The entire complex is just gorgeous with little outside siting areas and a deck with a very clean and well maintained hot tub. Overall, staying at Peter's place was a great experience!

  • My husband and I had a great stay in Peter's bungalow. Peter was friendly and laid back. We had our personal space but he was available for questions. The location was great, close to many great restaurants, bars and shops in a very cool Silverlake neighborhood. I enjoyed Peter's recommendations list for neighborhood spots. The space itself was perfect for two with everything needed for a short or even longer stay. The bed was comfortable, we slept well there. The kitchen was very well equipped although we didn't cook anything more than toast. The decor was fun and eclectic as was the property itself with quiet little gardens for each space. I would definitely stay again for a fun city get away.

  • My son and I stayed at Peter's lovely apartments for the entire month of February. We go to LA every year during this time always using Airbnb to find accommodations. This was by far our best experience. We actually stayed at (2) of Peter's apartments as this one wasn't ready until the second week of our stay...both were equally charming. The units are clean, bright and well appointed, stocked with everything you will need for your stay. The neighborhood is safe and the location is perfect for getting around LA....only 10 or 15 minutes away from anything. Peter (and John) are EXTREMELY accommodating and attentive to your needs and Dobrina (the housekeeper) is very pleasant and keeps things spic and span. You will not go wrong if you book your stay here!!! Thank you so much Peter for everything....we miss it already!!

  • We stayed with Peter for a month and could not have wished for a better place to live. The apartment instantly felt like a home to come back to after a busy day or a long trip away from Los Angeles. Absolutely perfect. The apartment was equipped with everything you need and nicely decorated. There were always plenty of parking and Peter have really made the whole place into a green oasis. Very relaxing and good for us who traveled with a toddler. Peter and John were both incredibly nice and helpful when we had questions or needed help with something. We hope we get to meet them again, and our toddler hoping to meet the incredibly nice dogs again. If we come back, this is where we will stay

  • Wow! After a two week vacation over the holidays, my husband and I got caught in the Polar Vortex weather delays, and were unable to get back to Chicago when our flight was cancelled. Being unexpectedly stuck in LA was lucky enough, but, discovering Peter's place was the best good fortune of all. He was the best host, available when we needed to ask a question, but, otherwise never bothered us. His place is perfectly laid out, furnished, stocked and arranged for comfort and efficiency, with even a washer and dryer in the unit. The location is prime, and you can walk two blocks to Sunset Junction where you have coffee shops, bars, restaurants and shopping all right there. You will never want to leave! We are (website hidden) vacation rental owners, so we know the drill, and this place is top of the line in all ways!

  • Highly recommend. These are quiet apartments that feel private and secluded yet in an amazing location, in the heart of the best that Silver Lake has to offer. Peter and his dogs are friendly and accommodating. The hot tub is a nice perk. We enjoyed the private patio off the back as well. Cafe Stella and the adjoining bar on Sunset is a must.

  • Excellent stay! Peter was a gracious host. The house felt private and cozy. It was very well equipped including laundry and kitchenware. A great location in the city.

    January 2014
  • A great place to stay! A stone's throw from Sunset Junction with nice restaurants and shops. Peter and John are terrific hosts. Our 11 month old daughter made friends with the dogs. We stayed for five weeks and would gladly return!

    December 2013
  • Peter was very thoughtful and accommodating. He blocked off a little area in the backyard for our pug so that his very friendly but large dog would leave the little guy in peace. We had chocolates and wine upon arrival and the hot tub looked fantastic although we were unfortunately too busy to ever take a dip. We also loved the neighborhood and the ability to walk to multiple restaurants and specialty shops.

    November 2013
  • We loved staying here - and it's true, it's even better in real life than it is on the photos. It's super clean and quiet, and in walking distance of beautiful things. We will make it our business to go back and test the hot tub asap! Thank you Peter also for the excellent suggestions and poetic intel on the neighbourhood highlights. X

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.” ― Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt
Peter grew up in Australia and moved to New York under the guise of graduate study two decades ago. He lived, loved and worked in New York for ten years before surrendering to the sun-shiny ease of Los Angeles and a job producing bad studio television. These days he works from home and enjoys occasional bursts of gardening and puttering about locally. He finds the running of menial errands quite soothing. He retired from producing and currently ascribes to being part of that soloist, dawdling, covert and best of all, immeasurably vague profession, "Writer." Peter is as gay as the day is long but very straight friendly. Some of his best friends fall into the frighteningly straight category. He lives in a house at the back of the properties with his trusty side-kick, Deebo Brown - a placid and lovable large brown dog, gentle and loving to babies, children and people of all religious and political persuasions. Together they are determined to use their Aussie and Canine genetics for good, not for evil and to help make your stay great. Feel free to ask any questions you have about us or the property you are looking at booking. We really do try to make your stay memorable in the loveliest way. That might be setting the bar overly high but we really are believers in bars on the highest setting. Please let us know if anything is not as impressive as it sounds or looks.
