Sunset Junction! Large rebuilt craftsman house. Bedroom is on 2nd floor, with a queen size bed. French doors lead to a private balcony facing west. Cool in the mornings and beautifully lit by afternoon sunlight. Next to the bedroom is a beautifully designed custom bathroom. Very large shower next to a two person tub with jets. There is also is an additional powder room on the 1st floor.
Large modern kitchen, great space to cook or just hang out in, with french doors that lead to another huge balcony/deck where you can, BBQ, or just relax and have a cocktail before heading out into Silver Lake, Hollywood, Downtown LA, Echo Park for the nightlife, the food, and the music!
I do stock the kitchen with coffee, tea, bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs, bagels/toast, almond/soy/coconut/and cow's milk, and I'll pick up seasonal fruit at the market and put it out on the counter for my guests to help themselves.
Full access to Kitchen, Full bath, plus an additional half bathroom off the kitchen, Balcony off kitchen, and lounge/patio in the front of the house.
Interaction with Guests
Depends on each situation. Sometimes we're all very social, and other times guests just want to relax and enjoy their privacy.
We are walking distance from the Sunset Junction that features such destinations as Cafe Intelligentsia, Stella, Bulan Vegan Thai, Cafe Flore, Nature Well, 4100 bar, the LA Eagle. Akbar, El Cid, Cliffs Edge. Every Saturday and Wednesday, there is the farmers market, also walking distance.
Walk to the Junction where you can pick buses that run along Sunset Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard. The metro red line is about a 10 minute walk or three bus stops.
Other Things to Note
Street parking is available in front or behind the house. (Always read signs and rules when parking your car)
Pretty relaxed here. We keep the noise low on the weeknights from 11pm till 8am.
Sometimes share a drink with the guests before heading out for a night on the town.
I stayed 2 days at Chris and liked my time there very much. I could check in earlier and store my luggage on my last day.
So I was free to stroll around the city.
Fantastic was the chance to have breakfast on the balcony in the morning sun.
I was supplied with information that I needed and everything was like described.
Chris was great...welcoming and friendly but unobtrusive. The place was spacious, clean, and quiet. It was also super close to everything: A great value!
Great place to stay! Thank you Chris! Good location. Very comfortable bed. Beautiful house. Very inviting and flexible host.
Amazing house and location, I had the best days of an exciting LA visit. Chris was a great host, thanks again for everything!
Amazing, amazing house! Friendly, helpful host, great stocked fridge for breakfast and fresh home baked cookies on arrival. What more could you ask for?

I grew up in the New York suburbs and north east New England. I wound up living in New York City for a few years, and eventually moved to California about 22 years ago. I've been living in the Silver Lake and Los Feliz area ever since, and I run the BNB with my partner Frank.
I embrace the 'LA' lifestyle, in that I try to be easy going and flexible, and do take advantage of the local delights. (Mountains, deserts, and the Pacific Ocean.) When I'm traveling, sometimes I'm looking for a peaceful natural retreat, other times looking for a fun city that stays open late.
It's amazing how many interesting and really cool people I've met through airbnb.com and I'm very happy I can be a host and will continue to do so.
