About this listing
Fun great location! Modern, simple, comfy and priced right! Located in between downtown and Hollywood, 10 min either way. My apartments provide you with everything you would want when visiting LA. But, don't take my word for it, read my reviews!
Before we get into the details of the apartment and location, take a minute and go straight to my reviews. I believe that feedback from people whom have stayed here is the most important info to help you make your decision.
The feel and look of a designer hotel, vibe and amenities of a local apartment, the perfect location for business or pleasure, and half the cost.
The studio apartment is in a central Eastside location. It is in Silverlake near Echo Park, right off of Sunset Blvd. Silverlake is right in the middle of Downtown and Hollywood. This apartment is 1 of 2 modern styled apartments I've designed solely for the vacation renter. That means that the unit is much like a hotel, there are no clothes or anything stored in the apartment except for things for you! Included in the rate are three bikes for your neighborhood cruising pleasure! There is also a super cute custom renovated camper trailer that can rented as an additional bedroom for extra guests! Perfect for a family with kids!
I also have a second unit that has a similar design upstairs to this apartment. Book both apartments for large groups!

Interaction with Guests
I am a touring musician so may or may not be home during your stay.
On this side of town, my neighborhood is the absolute best! Close to all of the action, but far enough away to have parking, silence at night, and that small town feeling only ten minutes from downtown and Hollywood! There 2 huge parks near here and 2 lakes walking distance from my house! There is plenty of AMAZING restaurants that people will crosstown for, that is walking distance! I moved here 9 years ago and this neighborhood has improved SO much, and so much fun stuff is popping up every month! I know you'll love it here, so book already! Read my reviews and I know you'll feel the same!

Henry was great and so was his wife. We needed new sheets at 4am in the morning and they were on it right away. Place was nice and clean. The nighborhood was nice and safe at night as well. It's also close to all the main attractions. I would defiantly stay here again!
Henry's studio was really nice. Very well-equipped & modern. Clean enough (the bathtub could have been a little cleaner). A washing machine & a dryer are available in the patio just outside the flat. Very, very nice patio by the way with a little table, sofas & a barbecue grill which we loved. Warning: there is some sort of roll-in bed for a 3rd person but it's NOT comfortable & is very narrow. The main bed is very big however so 3 people can easily sleep in it. Finally, know that the patio is shared with the people who rent the flat upstairs so that people can see you inside your studio if you don't close the curtains. We went along very well with our neighbors so we had no problems. Neighborhood is nice & quiet, but it's a 5min ride to Sunset Bld & its animated cafes. All in all, a great stay!
Nos encantó el apartamento de Henry! Nuestra estancia fué perfecta. Aunque no conocimos al anfitrión, nos dió todos los pasos para realizar el check in y no tuvimos ningún problema. Tampoco tuvimos ningún problema al aparcar por aquella zona todos los días. El barrio es tranquilo y tiene cerca un supermercado. Y nos encantaron sus dos gatitos!
Esperamos volver pronto y seguro que es al apartamento de Henry!
Very nice place to stay in a very good neighborhood with palms in the street :)
Great location and very spacious apartment! The street that the house is on is lined with palm trees - very LA! ;) There was plenty of parking which we appreciated. Henry was extremely prompt at communicating before and during our stay which is a huge plus for me. Backyard was super cute too. Would definitely stay again!
It was my boyfriend's and my first time using airbnb. Henry made us feel very welcomed, making sure we had everything needed. He even gave us a list of things we can do and places to eat at! We ended up wanting to stay for one more day, and he was kind enough for us to stay for an extra day. We would definitely come back.
Great host, great apartment. Everything was really clean and organized. Great place to have a barbecue.

About the Host, Henry
I am a touring musician/music producer. 4 years ago, I was fortunate enough to buy the house I was renting and have been renovating it since. Because I am on the road most of the year, I have opted to rent out the apartments behind my house that was originally going to be music studios. I have spent nights in hundreds of hotels and tour buses and have developed an appreciation for design. It has been a pleasure to renovate my apartments into clean, modern, stylish yet practical spaces and then share them with you! I believe that these apartments provide everything you could possibly want as a traveler, designer hotel styling, yet homey vibe, safe and tucked central LA location, and dedicated to the traveler as they are only for vacation and business rentals. The people I surround myself, that live, and work here are all creative professionals. Come stay at my apartments and live like you live in LA!
