About this listing
Gorgeous magazine-featured "dream home" in the heart of Silverlake, with 2 large decks, lemon trees, a piano & outdoor hot tub with a view of the Hollywood Sign. It's a 4-minute walk to Sunset Blvd, but you'd never know it on this quiet cul-de-sac.
Featured as one of 12 "dream homes" for rent in Los Angeles magazine, this gorgeous 2-bedroom house is like a ski chalet in the heart of Silverlake, with high wooden arched ceilings, two large decks, lemon trees and an outdoor hot tub with a view of the Hollywood Sign. It's a four-minute walk to the center of Silverlake (right off Sunset!), but due to its unique position on a cul-de-sac, you will feel like you're in a quiet tropical forest.
The kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots and pans you need to cook yourself delicious meals to enjoy on the deck, plus there's a Miele espresso maker that even froths the milk. The beds come with clean linens and there are plenty of towels in the two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a giant king size bed. The second bedroom has a comfy queen bed which turns into a couch if you prefer to use it as an office. There are two bathrooms, one with shower, and the other with a shower and another tub.
The neighborhood is safe and quiet. You are just three blocks from Sunset, so though it's residential, you'll be able to walk five minutes to get to restaurants and stores. Silverlake boasts lots of great places to eat, grab a coffee and shop.
My car, a 2010 Prius with navigation, may be available too, for an additional fee, on a case-by-case basis. Also my bicycles! There's parking for two cars.
The entire house is wired with a top-of-the-line audio/video system, giant screen for watching movies (cable included), and surround sound with controls in every room.
NOTE: The house is reached by walking up a set of twenty wooden stairs from the parking area, thus is not appropriate for individuals with disabilities. Also note: I've bought new and nicer Danish mid-century furniture since these pix were taken. ALSO NOTE: My house price is discounted until August 12 due to some fencing construction on my rear deck. None of the amenities will be affected, but there is a work going on outside.
Polite dogs are allowed if they aren't going to bark all day and make the neighbors hate me. Cats are allowed if declawed. Please declare pets; any pet requires an extra $200 cleaning fee. Parties of more than 7 people, and film/photo shoots, are not allowed without prior permission; playing very loud music is not permitted due to the neighbors, although normal respectful enjoyment of the place is encouraged!
Super nice place, quiet, clean, very well designed, the surround sound system is awesome, me and my family had a great time staying here.
This home is one of our favorites in Silver Lake! A wonderfully open main room makes meeting and cooking together really wonderful and easy. The large deck right out the front door is perfect for hosting a group of people, especially for our unique needs for daytime workshops. While we didn't spend much time up at the hot tub, we felt like every corner of the living areas were really special and almost treehouse-like.
Ari's ability to quickly respond and meet our needs was immensely helpful, especially since we were planning a last-minute rental. And because of his overall easy-going attitude, we felt right at home in the space. The kitchen is stocked, the couches are comfortable, and everything is there that you might need.
We love this place, and we've already booked it twice in the last 2 weeks! Really looking forward to being here again.
Ari has a really helpful message explaining all the ins and outs after you book it. The place is even better than the description. The view is awesome and the decor is amazing!
We only stayed at Ari's for 1 night because that's all the time in LA we had but we wish we could have stayed longer. His place is everything in the description and more. The vibe is complete relaxation. As soon as we got there we took a breath and kicked back. We had food delivered because we didn't want to leave. Looking forward to staying there again when we are in town. Thanks Ari!
Ari is an amazing host! He was very responsive and kind. The chalet is GORGEOUS! We really needed a vacation and were super bummed when our Cabo plans fell through. However, the minute we walked into the house our spirits were lifted. I couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else for the week. The kitchen is well stocked with all of the pots and appliances you will need. It’s quite rare that a place looks and feels as good, if not better, than the pictures. Such is the case at the chalet.
The house feels enchanting, especially the way the sun glows in the morning. It feels /looks very cared for and you absolutely want to take care of it too. We especially loved sitting on the front deck, reading, playing board games surrounded by beautiful trees and chirping birds. We cannot wait to return.
We loved the cappuccino and chai at the nearby Casbah café. We purchased a few groceries at Trader Joes and Gleasons which is a quick 5-7 minute drive from the house. Silver lake itself is an awesome place. This stay totally changed my views on LA for the better.
All of the reviews are spot on. Ari's place is awell thought out space and maintained to perfection. Kind of a sanctuary in the hills of Silverlake. Also the coffeemaker rules.
We had the opportunity to use Ari's home for a photo shoot for our company. Overall his home has a great feel to it and we enjoyed our time there. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
