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)...........
Walk to the best restaurants, bars, music venues, cafes and shops in Silver Lake and Echo Park. Farmer's market 2X a week within blocks - and Yummy delivers (within 30 mins) whatever you forgot to pick up at Trader Joe's. We provide earth friendly laundry and kitchen products.
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 ' s place was perfect for our family of five. Lots of space, close to all the things we wanted to see. The place was clean, modern design and airy. All the amenities. Stephen was accommodating and we had a great time in LA because we stayed here. I can't recommend it enough.
The house had a great location and was spacious enough to comfortably fit 5 people for a longer stay.
Stephen was a good host although we never needed to meet face to face. The only complaint we have is that the house is in need of a little maintenance. The shower pipes on the lower level needs some work and the roof over the stairs up to the upper level leaks under heavy rain.
If Stephen fixes the roof and the shower then I can highly reccomend this townhouse.
Couldn't have been happier staying here! The house was in a great location, clean, well kept, and very comfortable. I stayed for three nights with my wife and daughter, and it was difficult to leave, we enjoyed our stay so much.
Communication with owner was friendly and courteous. This was my first ever use of airbnb, and I'm a total convert!
Highly, highly recommended.
We loved this place! Spotlessly clean, urban chic, comfy beds and linens, bright and colorful rooms, towels and linens. Everything you could want is there. Great balcony with downtown LA views. Looks even better in real life than the photos. Stephen was excellent as a host and even rcommended a perfect place for dinner. we hope to stay again.
Awesome place with a great view and lots of fun places within walking distance.
The neighborhood is great! We parked in the garage, but street parking seemed easy if there are multiple cars. The house was very clean, there was nice shampoo, lotion and soap for us to use. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils if we wanted to cook and there was wood outside if we wanted to build a fire.
Great space. Simple, but very comfortable. Great view of downtown from the balcony. Morning coffee on the balcony was a highlight. Great central location for seeing the sights and experiencing the city.

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.
