Perched above Sunset Blvd in Silver Lake in an eco-friendly tri-plex ~ spacious 1500 sq ft two-story apartment decked out for work or play.

Note to people travelling with kids: this is a hillside property which creates amazing views and some dramatic heights. Their are railings on all of the balconies - but if you have a little climber, or rambuncous/impulsive kids of any age, this apartment may not be the best fit (if you want to be able to relax)...........

Perfect location for those travelling without a car - easy access to public transit. Bus stop within 0.1 mile is serviced by several far reaching routes and closest Metro station is 1.5 miles along Sunset and accessible by bus.
We have solar panels and tankless hot water heaters - this year looks like a bumper crop of heirloom tomatoes and figs in our organic garden fueled by our composting worm farm. Chickens are on the horizon......
If you are looking for a retreat/gathering/reunion location - we have another apartment in the building that is available some months of the year and can accommodate 4 more. Please inquire.
Pets are welcome with an additional cleaning fee so that we can maintain the place as animal free for the next guests.
Interaction with Guests
you can check in and out independently. we live next door and you may see us out in the yard, or on our balcony.......we very often never see our guests, but sometimes we end up meeting and enjoy the connection.
The only house rule is no smoking inside the house. Smoking is permitted, however, on the balconies or in the yard downstairs.
Stephen was pleasant and straightforward to deal with. The apartment was exactly as advertised and very attractive with great views of downtown LA. Everything was well organised and very comfortable. All you could need for a home from home! The area is very hip with many shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. We loved it and hope to be back in the future.
Excellent. It's our second time staying at Stephen's and it is such a great experience. Clean, comfortable, great views, location and I love the new record player!
Really nice and clean apartment! Great location and top host! Just wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!
The town home was PERFECT. Plenty of space, very clean, amazing view, parking spot in the garage, it made our stay 100% perfect. Lots of great places walking distance as well for drinks and dining.
The apartment was excellent for our group of 6 friends. We absolutely loved the LP record collection, view from the balcony and the back yard with the BBQ.
There was a little shortage of basic amenities, like condiments, toilet paper and extra towels, but otherwise the experience was perfect. We would definitely recommend!
What a find in a trendy area of L.A.! Stephen was nothing but accommodating and prompt to respond when booking. The house is absolutely gorgeous- very clean and well decorated. We had a dinner party for 8 people and had all the necessary utensils and stemware. We also enjoyed listening to the vinyl collection while drinking wine and visiting with friends. I would definitely recommend this space.

We(Stephen & Amy) live in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA with our two sons and four cats. We spend many evenings enjoying sips of mescal with company while taking in the views of Sunset and downtown from our upstairs patio. We share a passion for tasty foods: sushi, fish tacos, the lovely dishes at Cliff's Edge, and whatever we come up with in the kitchen or on the grill.
