Houston's place was wonderful. I totally enjoyed my stay. The apartment was very welcoming and comfortable. Everything was as advertised - and the view of the LA skyline from the patio was great. At one point, Houston left an extra bag of coffee beans, fearing that I was running low. I also loved the neighbhood and the entire Silver Lake area. Had one minor issue with wifi, but when I mentioned it, Houston's husband quickly reset it and we were good. I met both of them and they couldn't have been nicer. Thanks Houston, for everything!
A very cool, cozy and clean apartment in a nice neighborhood with great restaurants, shops and bars that you can easily walk to. We really enjoyed our stay in Houston's place especially our breakfast sessions on the patio with a beautiful view on L.A.'s skyline.
We had a wonderful stay. The place was well located and very comfortable with an amazing view from the back patio. Our host was perfectly helpful and communicative. We would totally recommend a stay here.
Houston's flat is great and very well located. The neighborhood is very quiet and we could easily walk to Sunset Boulevard.
Houston was wonderful. Worked with me on my arrival time and was very responsive.
The kitchen was well organized and clean.
The studio was vintage and very charming.
My friend and I had an easy, lovely stay on Micheltorona St. Looks just like the pictures. The apartment was super clean, cozy, and worked perfectly as a crash-pad while we toured L.A. -- and was also just a nice place to spend a lazy morning. We especially liked having breakfast on the sunny patio, and being within a close walk of Silver Lake.
