About This Listing
Separate, Private Guesthouse in my backyard in Silverlake. Newly renovated Loft with queen bed, couch downstairs also can be a single bed. Mini-kitchen, refrigerator, full bathroom. Quiet, surrounded by yards, neighbors far away. Walk to Sunset Junction, tons of fabulous cafes and shops. Farmer's market on Saturdays. Parking is available in my driveway. The check in and out times may be altered according to when my next guest arrives, so feel free to ask and I will try and accommodate you. I changed the minimum nights to 2, but if its a last minute booking and there is one night available. just ask me, I may say yes!
** Due to LA City taxes, all guests must pay a 14% transient occupancy tax to the city for all stays of 30 days or less, so you will need to pay this amount to me separately, it is not included in the price you are paying to airbnb. I will provide an envelope for you to pay me cash for this amount. This is the same tax you pay in LA hotels and I have to forward it to LA City Hall each month. Airbnb has no facility to collect the tax at this time, so I will accept a cash payment upon check in or pay pal if you want to use a credit card. Feel free to call airbnb support to confirm this **
**This charge does not apply to stays over 30 days.
Some further clarification, it is not a full kitchen, there is a mini-refrigerator, coffee maker, hot water pitcher, toaster oven, plates, cups, silverware, pots and pans.. there is also a hotplate with two burners.
There will be an extra charge for more than two people.
The room is wireless. There is also a television with HBO and Showtime. Everything is new and super clean.
Our stay in Janet's guesthouse couldn't have been any better. Next time in LA we plan to stay again.
Janet was very helpful, the place was very clean and comfortable. Wish I had more time to explore the neighborhood, but what I did experience was great. A nice break from the rest of LA. I would definitely come back.
Janet and her lift are fantastic. It's a cozy little place in a great neighborhood and I'd love to come back. Listen to her food recommendations if you know what's good. Every place on her list we tried was great. I hope all the future places I stay are as easy and comfy as this was. Also, let's not forget the off street parking. You can spend an hour driving in circles trying to find a spot in this neighborhood and Janet is gracious enough to let you use her driveway. It's so helpful!
Janet communicated with us via email before our trip and was very informative and gracious during our stay. Accommodations were as described and we were very comfortable. THX
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay in the Guesthouse. It is exactly as pictured and described in the ad -- clean, cute, and comfortable. It is a relaxing and well laid out space.
It is also conveniently located within walking distance of several great coffee shops.
The Guesthouse is truly a separate structure from the main house so you don't have to worry about disturbing your host if you stay up late or get up early, talk loudly, etc.
Janet was super cool and my husband and I would definitely stay at the Guesthouse again :)

About the Host, Janet
I'm a freelance wardrobe stylist... I'm clean, quiet, friendly, I live mostly upstairs, so you will have tons of privacy. If you are new to Los Angeles and to Silverlake, I can suggest fun things to do, especially in the arts and music scenes. I hope you enjoy your stay! I also practice yoga all over town, so can suggest good yoga studios to attend, and can point you in the direction of healthy, organic eateries and where to hear good, live music!
As a host in Los Angeles, I have to charge 14% for TOT transient occupancy tax and pay to the City of Los Angeles, this charge I have to charge separately and you will pay this to me in additional to the total that you pay airbnb. So far, there is nothing I can do to change this, I know everyone would like to just pay one fee, but airbnb is not allowing this in Los Angeles at the moment. Please understand and comply!
