quiet/green oasis, perfect location

House - Private room · Manzanita St, Los Angeles, CA 90029, United States

The Space

Private bedroom with comfy bed in quiet, adorable, sunny, mid-century furnished 1912 2-bedroom house (with private attached entrance to shared bathroom). See the guide book (top right above "book it" button) for (so many!) places nearby/walkable. (Meaning LA walkable, so truly walkable even for people who are addicted to cars!)

If you're interested, please send me a message with a few lines about yourself/your travel companion before booking. My cats and I love to welcome people just traveling through, or looking for a temporary place while they search to make LA a permanent home. I don't really book more than 3 months in advance (for example, if this is September, nothing past December).

Great outdoor area with veggie garden and sitting space, dining table/umbrella.

Fully stocked kitchen appliances/pots/pans/utensils. Free laundry on-site, high-speed wifi, super easy (free) street parking.

Right at Sunset Junction in "arty"/"hip" Silverlake, walk to shops, restaurants, bars, farmer's market, 3 min drive to plenty more in Echo Park and Los Feliz (or pop over to Hollywood, Downtown, Little Tokyo or Chinatown in 5-10). Abundance of convenience and places to explore, but down a hill from Sunset Blvd, so remarkably also a quiet oasis.

For the non-driver, not only can you easily walk...this place gets a better "walker's score" (91/100) than my convenient place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!...but the house is walking distance to many major express buses (as this is a hub spot) and convenient to the metro.

PLEASE NOTE friendly **indoor-only cats live here** (if that's a problem, this won't be a good fit for you). ; )

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I spent four days at Ruthie's wonderful house in Silverlake and I would highly recommend staying there. The location is great, the place is adorable, and I was very comfortable. On top of everything, Ruthie is a great host and a very nice person!

    September 2013
  • Ruthie is a wonderful person and a great roommate. The apartment was beautiful, idyllic and clean and Ruthie's three cats are gorgeous and friendly! The neighborhood is so much fun and there are a lot of great restaurants and shops. I couldn't have found a better place. Thank you Ruthie!

    September 2013
  • Staying at Ruthie's was a pleasure! She is a wonderful host and her place is beautiful, comfortable and situated on a calm street, just a short walk away from a very lively area.( Lots of lovely coffee shops, a farmers' market and a large choice of veggie restaurants/bistros.) Definitely recommend!

  • Lovely, small quiet apartment in Silver Lake. Three friendly cats can't get enough of your company!

    April 2013
  • Ruthie and her lovely cats made our stay in Silverlake a comfortable and welcoming one. We'd happily recommend future guests to consider this room. The house is cosie and very homily, almost as good as home :)

    April 2013
  • Ruthie's place was beautiful, spacious and quiet. The natural lighting and plants created a really rejuvenating environment. Ruthie popped in daily to keep the place tidy and tend to the cats. Bed was super comfy with fresh clean linens, bathroom and bedroom were great, loads of privacy and very clean.
    The cats are a pretty strong presence in the house. We're cat lovers but at times felt we had to be pretty vigilant with them. They aren't aggressive at all, they just reeeeeeeally love attention! We did make one attempt to cook but found it difficult with them sitting on the stove! Had we stayed a little longer they may have settled more to our presence though.
    Ruthie was very lovely and had a lot of suggestions re places to check out. We'd stay there again for sure.

    April 2013
  • Ruthie was great. Her place was super clean and comfortable, located in an excellent part of LA. She was really friendly and came through in a pinch for me with a perfect place to stay for my last two days in the city.

    April 2013
  • Ruthie is a consummate host and her home could not be more perfect for anyone looking to spend time in Sunset Junction or the eastside in general. Despite its proximity to Sunset, Ruthie's abode feels like a quiet oasis, surrounded by lots of plants and patrolled by three friendly cats. The guest room includes a comfortable bed and plenty of storage for clothes and anything you might pick up while shopping in the area. Ruthie was great at communicating and made certain that all questions were answered quickly.

    Thanks Ruthie!

    April 2013
  • Ruthie's house was great! Clean quiet and in a beautiful neighborhood.

    April 2013
  • Ruthie' place was perfect and I felt at home right away ! She was not there during my stay but her roommate was so kind to me ! I will definitively stay there again next time I'm in LA.
