The Space

The scenic hills of Silver Lake are near downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Echo Park, Dodger Stadium and Griffith Park, but there are great restaurants, cafes, coffee houses, shops, clubs, bars, etc., within walking distance. Forbes Magazine called Silver Lake "America's #1 hipster neighborhood." It is also well known as a gay-friendly neighborhood.
For a view and a workout, climb the 190 steps at the end of our street, jog around the lake/reservoir or stroll thru Sunset Junction with its surprising variety of cafes, shops, etc.
We are located between I-5 and the 101 freeways, and public transportation is just three blocks away.
The cozy and quiet, non-smoking apartment is the lower level of our home. One or two guests preferred, but a third is negotiable.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had an amazing time at Wayne and Don's. The place was extremely clean, well furnished and they had thought of everything and more. All the extra little touches made it so welcoming and comfortable. Their back patio/ gardens area is so tranquil and it was so nice of them to open it to their guests.
    Wayne and Don are great hosts,and their friendly and welcoming ways made us feel right at home. Their kitchen and fridge had treats for us along with some great wine that we enjoyed. They do not intrude but at the same time are always around with suggestions or directions on the local area...if you need it. Thanks Wayne and Don, for your excellent hospitality and we will definitely be back

  • I booked Wayne and Don's place for my in-laws, who came out to LA for a visit after the birth of my son. My husband and I live a few blocks away and my in-laws didn't bother renting a car, so we appreciated the central location of the house, which allowed my father-in-law to take a short walk down to coffee at Lamill and people-watching in the mornings. And my mother-in-law appreciated the full kitchen. Both enjoyed Wayne and Don's hospitality and -- as the coordinator of all the logistics -- I found them communicative and easy to book with.

    Thanks for making my son's first week with his grandparents a little easier!

  • I cannot speak highly enough about how accommodating Wayne and Don were and how wonderful their apartment is. They were fantastic hosts, attentive and highly knowledgable about the surrounding area. The apartment was very cosy, comfortable and we felt truly relaxed being there. Views from the sun terrace are great (as is the view from the top of the steps at the end of the street) and the apartment is a short distance Sunset Boulevard and walking distance from the beautiful Echo Park Lake. Already missing being there and will definitely be back sometime next year.

  • we had a great stay at wayne and don's place. the apartment has its own front door and is thereby very private. its next to the garden with 1000 flowers and a sundeck. the apartment was clean and had everything, the fridge was prepared with breakfast food and nice wine. we particularly liked the area, its has a nice feel, good places to eat, nice stores etc. (hipster alert!). thanks wayne and don!

  • We spent four nights at Wayne and Don's apartment. We only wish we had more time to visit with them. They are extremely warm and hospitable without being the least bit intrusive. They set us up with coffee, juice, milk, cereal, bread, jam, wine, fruit, and bottled water! The apartment was extremely comfortable and even has a full kitchen. We loved taking our breakfast or evening wine out to the terrace and enjoying all their beautiful plants as well as birdsong. It made an excellent base for exploring LA. We didn't take full advantage of Silver Lake but could have walked the lake or enjoyed local restaurants.

  • We spent eight days at Wayne and Don's place. The guesthouse was just as described it in the website; it was quiet and peaceful. The first day they both greeted me and showed me the apartment. Don and Wayne were very thoughtful because they not only provided maps and offered directions, buy they also stocked the refrigerator with milk, juice, and water. A bowl of fresh fruit and wine was also provided. I definitely recommend staying at Wayne and Don’s place!

  • Wayne and Don are the greatest hosts, from the minute I arrived they made me feel at home. Their place was exactly what I was looking for in Silver Lake, clean, quiet, and private. The back yard and deck are beautiful and peaceful, I think I spent as much time outside as inside. Great kitchen for cooking or an easy walk down to Sunset Blvd to eat at the many great restaurants. They even introduced me to their great neighbors and invited me out for drinks. I enjoyed my experience so much that I just booked another 7 days with them in July. See you soon guys.

  • My wife and I have stayed at Wayne and Don's place on several occasions and hope to do so again on our next visit to Los Angeles ... which speaks for itself. Their accomodations are very clean and neat; it is roomy (with a very spacious deck), quiet and very well equipped. Wayne and Don are always ready to assist but do not intrude.

  • Wayne and Dons place Silverlake was supercozy. Perfect location on a quiet street but still close to both Silverlake junction and Echo Park. Wayne and Don even provided breakfast wich were highly appreciated for a traveler. We stayed three nights and would definitely come back. Highly recommended!

  • We love staying at Don and Wayne's Country Casual's spot in Silverlake. In fact we liked it so much we stayed there 2 years in a row. Living quarters are cozy and their outside area is like something out of Better Homes and Gardens. Super nice guys, and always eager to tips, tourist destinations, you name it, they can give assistance. When we visited the second time I felt as tho we were reuniting with family.

We are a retired couple who enjoy meeting travelers from around the world. We have both worked for airlines and traveled a bit ourselves. We know the importance of having a friendly, safe and comfortable place to stay. Wayne has lived in the area for many years and is very good at suggesting what to see and how to get there. Wayne is a BIG college sports fan. Don founded and operated a travel club for 16 years. We do not provide a full breakfast, but we do offer the basics (coffee, tea, juice, milk, cereal), and, when we are at home, guests are welcome to join us on the deck for a late afternoon glass of wine.
