We had an amazing time at Paul and Bryan's. They are impeccable hosts, focused on providing every detail which can help make your visit comfortable. The kids LOVED movie night in the backyard and browsing Paul's collection of popup books. We can't wait to stay here next time we are in LA!
Nous avons passé 5 jours fantastiques dans cette maison a Los Angeles. Cela aura été notre meilleure étape de nos vacances en Californie. L accueil de Bryan et Paul est vraiment très sympa. La maison est très fonctionnelle et c est vraiment gentil de remplir le frigo à notre arrivée. La vue depuis le balcon sur LA est fantastique. Bref nous avons adoré notre passage sur SIlver Lake. Si nous revenons sur LA, nous reviendrons sans hésiter dans la maison de Bryan et Paul !
What a great experience, our only regret is that we didn't schedule more time in LA.
The apartment alone warrants a five star rating, however Paul and Bryan add a thick layer of icing to the cake with their generosity and thoughtfulness.
Every detail was thought of.....the detailed arrival instructions, the personalised welcome message, the drinks and snacks hamper when we arrived, all really nice touches that truly make the difference.
The apartment is immaculate, beautifully designed, with great views in a great neighbourhood. It's also really conveniently located for Hollywood's main tourist attractions and a short 15 min car ride from Universal.
We arrived back late on the final evening after a long day at Universal and were invited down to share a couple of drinks with Paul & Bryan whilst they set up their outdoor Cinema for our girls to watch a Katy Perry documentary (too late for a film). What a unique experience!!
Our kids like hotels rather than rentals, but they fell in love with this place from the moment they stepped through the door.
Many thanks Paul and Bryan for allowing us to share your stunning home. I hope we'll be back in LA one day and if we are we have no decisions to make about where to stay.
Kind regards and all the best for the future.

Great experience! The home was cute, clean and beautifully done. My family and I loved the home and the neighborhood. The owners were the best part of the experience, so nice and accommodating. We will be back.
Paul and Bryan were outstanding hosts! We felt very welcome and they went out of their way to make everything comfortable for us - they even installed two air cons because of the heat. The apartment is equally outstanding in style, decor, atmosphere... and very clean and well-equipped. We loved staying with Paul and Bryan and would love to come back. We will certainly recommend them as a "home away from home" to anyone we know :-)
We had a fabulous time at Bryan and Paul's house. To quote my 9 year old, the house was 5 star all the way! Bryan and Paul's attention to detail is impressive from the travel plugs to the personalised welcome card to the toys for our two children. The place looks just like the pictures but what you can't see from the listing is the friendliness and kindness of the hosts. Can't recommend it & them enough!
