Apartment - Entire home/apt · Micheltorena St, Los Angeles, CA 90026, United States

The Space

This affordable loft style apartment, in the Sunset Junction area of Silver Lake, is walking distance to Sunset Blvd which is full of the cities best cafes, clubs lounges, vintage shopping, a weekly farmer’s market, bus lines, bike rentals, —all just down the hill from this breezy residential neighborhood. Take one of our famous "stair streets" down the hill to Sunset Boulevard. Located a few blocks from the, "Music Box Steps" of the 1932 renowned Laurel and Hardy film. You will find plenty of parking in this desirable part of Silver lake, "the Micheltorena hills." Our property is gated and fenced with a lit entry. The design was inspired by one of our favorite boutique hotels in the desert. The closet is open with wooden hangers and the decor is primarily white providing you with a neutral palette. When a guest unpacks his/her personal belongs those personal items become the color of the apartment. This provides a reflection and a unique experience for each guest. I believe that zen can be found with order and simplicity and our guests have concluded that the apartment is truly inspiring for them.

The open-style, minimalist modern apartment has hardwood floors, reclaimed hand-made furniture, flokati rugs, free wi-fi and an attractive kitchenette breakfast bar with hot plate, convection/toaster oven, mini fridge/freezer, foreman grill, coffee maker plus a new air conditioner and a new 32" flat screen hd tv with HBO and dvr.

You’ll have million dollar city views from both the living room and cozy bedroom which has a new full bed, and luxury linens. The modern bathroom has a new 32" shower enclosure and European style sink. We offer local handmade soaps, plush towels & hair dryer. For longer stays use our new washer & dryer located conveniently right outside the apartment.

Our apartment is cleaned with non toxic environmentally safe products after every visit. This is a family environment and discounts are already reflected in the price you are quoted.

Guest Access

There is a large city view patio just outside of the apartment that is shared. Original 1950's steel tube vintage patio set with umbrella is available when not in use by someone else.

  • As always, modern minimalist was just perfect for our needs - comfortable, clean and well situated in the Sunset/Silverlake area. This is the fourth time we've stayed with Houston and as always she's a perfect host. Highly recommend.

    April 2014
  • Houston and her husband were very helpful, there to greet us when we arrived and gave us all the information on the apartment we needed. The area is great just a short walk down to some great restaurants, bars and shops. She left a very useful guidebook highlighting her favourite places to visit, along with restaurant / bar recommendations. Really enjoyed our stay with Houston in LA and would definitely stay here again.

    March 2014
  • We spent wonderful 10 days at Houston's place! The apartment was cozy and stylish - just as described. The pantry was filled with basics, such as coffee, tea, sugar, oil, pasta, filtered water etc, which was great so we did not have to buy everything for the duration of our stay.

    My boyfriend and I were on a business/vacation trip, so we spend quite some time working at home as well as in nearby cafe's. The apartment was in a great location; walking distance to great cafe's, restaurant's, bar's and shops (Houston provided us with recommendations of spots & things to do, which was great). Parking was easy & perfect location in terms of major roads and freeways for trips with the car.

    Houston and her husband were easy to communicate with, wonderful & interesting people. We would most definitely stay at their place again when visiting Los Angeles.

    March 2014
  • Our hosts were very helpful, checking to make sure we had everything that we might need. The property was quite clean, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. We really appreciated being able to use the patio! The apartment is in a very nice neighborhood with great views and just a short walk to restaurants and shops.

    March 2014
  • Houston was the perfect host, and the place was absolutely lovely! The apartment is in a great, safe neighborhood with lots of good restaurants nearby. We'd definitely stay again our next trip to LA. Other AirBnB hosts should take pointers from Houston. Thanks!

    Response from Houston:

    That is SO kind of you! We really care about our guests and want to make sure they have an excellent place to stay. I'm very picky about lodging myself so this makes me day!

  • Great little private spot with beautiful views. Spartan and simple, just how we like it. Super cozy bed and very clean all around! Houston was so easy to communicate with, and check-in/out was a breeze.

  • Everything was exactly as described. Great location, right next to hollywood. The flat is very clean with modern furniture, stunning downtown view and a nice patio. Sunset blvd. is just a 10 minute walk away.

    February 2014
  • Houston was such a great host! The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The neighborhood was safe, convenient, and parking was never an issue. It's walking distance from great restaurants in Silver Lake and so close to DTLA.
    The views of the city were incredible and the place has so much natural sunlight in the morning- it was perfect!

    January 2014
  • Houston's place was great. Private, clean, cozy, convenient and a great location. There's laundry and a cute back yard and the view is lovely. There was coffee and honey - my fave. She's thought of everything and I appreciate that.

    January 2014
  • We've stayed at Houston's place twice (the first time we tried to leave an evaluation it was too late!) and we'll definitely go there again. Houston and her husband are the perfect hosts: friendly, helpful, there for you whenever you need them but not intrusive... They're gold!
    The apartment is even prettier in real life than in pictures. It's furnished with just the right things you need to feel at home from the first second you step foot in it, and the views are breathtaking.
    As far as the location is concerned, it's such a quiet, lovely street, with easy parking, friendly neighbours who'll wave at you and say hi as if you were a local, and direct access to the lively Sunset Junction.
    If you're considering booking this place: do it!
