Do yourself a favor and do a quick (website hidden) search of Atwater Village and you'll see some incredible history about Walt Disney (including his regular table at Tam O'Shanters and his homage to our famous Hyperion bridge at Disneyland). Most overlooked is our awesome LA River, which our family walks every morning, marvellng at the greater herons, ducks and a myriad of wildlife!

We had a wonderful time in Atwater, Glendale and Los Angeles. Even though we were 2,600 miles from home Shelli-Anne and Gavin made us feel like we were right at home. What a great experience we had. Shelli-Anne went out of her way to make sure that were a part of the community and she promptly took care of any concerns/questions we had. We are very grateful to have such wonderful host's as Shelli-Anne and Gavin during our 30 day stay in their lovely guesthouse. In all of our travels in Los Angeles, nothing felt more like home to us than Atwater Village. A very nice place to stay.
It was Thanksgiving week which was chaotic enough, but Shelli-Anne was there with her two charming little girls, Eva and Ella, to greet us road weary travelers when I knocked on their front door. She was very accommodating letting us park in the driveway to unload the car. The apartment is above the garage at the back of the property that is lushly landscaped with tropical plants - some that have grown two stories tall. There is a small yard at the base of the stairs and a small deck at the rear of the house with a table and chairs for outdoor gatherings.
The apartment was small, but well stocked for any length of stay. There is a flat screen TV, Wi-Fi for your laptop, a wonderful queen size bed and excellent water pressure in the shower which is very important. We needed more towels and I emailed Shelli-anne about it and as soon as I sent it it seemed like she was at out door with a stack of freshly washed towels with an apology that the cleaning lady had not left them for us as she was supposed to do. She was so embarrassed. So if you needed anything at any time all you need to do is email [or call] Shelli-Anne and she will help you if she can. We enjoyed staying in the apartment and learned how to make coffee with a French press for the first time. I looked up the brand name of the french press they have for the directions so I could use it correctly.
Atwater Village offers you all kinds of stores and restaurants and you can ask Shelli-Anne all about them as she is the expert on this area of Los Angeles. This place is centrally located so getting around to seeing my 95-yr. old uncle for Thanksgiving was easy. Everything looked entirely different in the daytime and I was able to figure out exactly where I was so getting around was not so difficult after that for the rest of the week. We had a great time and the week went by way too fast.
Sadly, we were not able to spend more time with Shelli-Anne, Gavin and the girls. They are really nice people. Very casual and laid back. Easy to get along with. Being from Australia they don't celebrate Thanksgiving so they decided to take a trip to the mountains for a few days. We left before they returned. Atwater is an interesting area I have been interested in knowing more about and Shelli-Anne is apparently very involved in what is going on there so she is the one to ask. Maybe next time. We recommend the Gorgeous Spanish/Modern Guesthouse and think that Shelli-Anne is a wonderful host-ess who is the mostess! Gavin, Eva and Ella are the mostess, too, and their little puppy dog, too! CHEERS!
I stayed at Shelli-Anne and Gavin's one bedroom apartment for three weeks and couldn't have been more comfortable. It's a beautiful spot conveniently located in Atwater Village, which has tons of great restaurants, bars and cafés. It's also very close to Los Feliz, Silverlake and a Echo Park. This will be preferred AirBnB rental whenever I'm traveling to LA.
Our stay at Shelli-Anne's was wonderful! Everything was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to make some meals. The bed was super comfortable too! Shelli-Anne was so nice and helped us to find a good restaurant for a night out! The location is very convenient to many restaurants. We highly recommend staying at Shelli-Anne's!
Little apartment was extremely cute, roomy, clean and Shelli-Anne and her family were lovely. Bed very comfortable. She was very welcoming and helped us with some washing and advice as we were new into LA. We were just in LA for a short but busy time and it made more sense for me to stay with a friend the second night. My Brother who was in town for the night took my place with my friend and they came in late after a night with friends. On second thought I understand how this was disrespectful and I'm very sorry for the noise and inconsideration. Talked with Shelli-Anne after and passed my apology. This is not my usual behavior or situation.
We enjoyed our stay in Atwater Village. The guest house is lovely and the bed is quite comfortable. Gavin is quite friendly and knowledgeable of nearby restaurants and shops. It was a overall a nice experience. We will keep them in mind for future visits.
Shelli-Anne and Gavin were amazingly kind, and very accommodating. They were very easy to contact and very quick to respond. They even made up a kids bed with pink sheets for our daughter. The guest house was very clean. Sheets, towels etc were all very nice. The neighborhood was quiet, and safe.
The recommendations they offered for local food/drink spots were all excellent. We walked to most of them; especially enjoyed atx & proof.
Atwater was a great place for us to be since we split our time between LA & Pasadena.
These are the sort of people that make airbnb travelling wonderful!
Great place. Very comfortable, nicely furnished and a well stocked kitchen, with all the necessary utensils. Shelli-Anne was out of town when I was there, so we did not meet. Her husband, Gavin, was a pleasant host.
Lovely guest house, delightful hostess, we had a great stay.
Shelli-Anne is the best hostess, she could not have been nicer or more helpful. It was more like staying as a personal guest then a paying one. She knows the neighborhood really well and is always available for (email hidden)e whole family, including Wally the dog were delightful. We felt very welcome and comfortable.
