The Space

Private room available in Silver Lake → includes a Danish futon to sleep on that is also a sofa. The room can feel like a living room or bedroom - whatever you prefer!

The building is registered as a historic landmark. Hardwood floors, open space and loads of sunlight! The layout is two large rooms on opposite ends of a long, wide hallway. It feels like two studio apartments with a bathroom and kitchen are in between.

* Cleaning fee includes full maid service

Great outdoor areas with an organic garden - our wifi signal works in the backyard - there is also a seating area.

I LOVE to host and come from a family in the hospitality business. It gives me great pleasure to welcome guests to Silver Lake and provide a "local" experience to Los Angeles.

The neighborhood is warm and colorful with a strong camaraderie amongst the neighbors, including a local guy who drives his pick-up truck full of fresh fruit/vegetables down the street honking his horn around noon every Wednesday. And his prices are just as friendly as he is! (6 bananas for $1 USD, $5 USD for a giant bag of oranges) - ALL freshly grown!

The flat is only a 1 minute walk away from local/organic/artisan coffee roasters. 15 minute walk to the famous Sunset Junction, full of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants.

It's hard to not find one of the local farmer’s markets in the area:
Silverlake - Saturday morning/Tuesday afternoon
Barnsdall Park - Wednesday afternoon
Echo Park - Friday afternoon
Atwater - Sunday morning

Street parking. Easy access to all the major freeways and centrally located to almost anything you could ask for:

-5 minute drive to Silverlake Reservoir/Meadow & Griffith Park.
-10 minutes to Downtown LA.
-10 minutes to Hollywood & North Hollywood.
-15 minutes to Pasadena.
-20 minutes to Beverly Hills & Mid-town.
-20 minutes to Culver City.
-25 minutes to Santa Monica & Venice.

* And you if you don't have a car, just a mere 10 minute drive/taxi to Union Station - Amtrak train and FlyAway bus to LAX - rides can be arranged with proper notice for additional $12 USD.

  • This was a wonderful apartment to stay in - exactly what I am looking for when I look for an airbnb. The room was clean, charmingly decorated, comfortable and peaceful. The whole place has a very relaxed, tasteful feel about it and is a pleasure to spend time in - and come back to at the end of a long day. Susannah just makes the whole experience even more of a joy - she is warm, attentive and interesting - willing to help you out with suggestions but also great at giving you your space and making it feel like your home too.

  • Susannah (email hidden)e was very helpful in trying to provide me insights into fun things to do around her place.

    The room was spacious and clean. The neighborhood was hip, quiet, with plenty of things to do. All around I would highly recommend paying her a visit!

  • I had a great time at Susannah's LA apartment. It's super clean, well organized and Susannah'(email hidden)e picked me up at Union station for far less than a regular taxi would have cost. She put a bandaid on my finger when i cut myself. Recommended!

  • Susannah is a great person, she's so helpful, kindly and smart. She made us feel like at home from the first day.

    The room is big, comfortable and bright. The kitchen is lovely and fully equipped. It has also a rooftop with really nice view! The area is great, Sunset blvd is at 10 min from the apartment and it's full of coffees, restaurants and some farmers markets once a week!

    I can't wait to be back!
    See you soon Susannah!

  • Just fantastic. Susannah is a wonderful, thoughtful and accommodating host and I would definitely stay here again. The fruit guy comes on Wednesday & is really cheap, the rooftop was a great spot to read or have a beer, and the room was clean and spacious. It was a futon and not a real bed as listed, but despite this I was comfortable and slept well. I'd recommend staying here to anyone looking for a quiet, private room while in an easily accessible part of LA.

    Response from Susannah:

    Thanks TJ! I just changed the listing to "Futon." I did have a "Real Bed" for previous stays - have been currently making improvements to the flat (new furniture, appliances, painting, etc). I will have new pictures up soon after all the additions have been made :-)

  • My friend Hanna and I stayed at Susannah's place for a few days in July and we enjoyed it so much – it was as though we were staying at a friend's house thanks to Susannah's hospitality and kindness. In other words she's hands down the best hostess ever! I'd truly recommend this place – it's clean, cozy, charming, and not to mention very close to all the coolest spots and Sunset Junction!
