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.
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!
Ari's home is absolutely gorgeous and I felt very comfortable there during my 4 night stay. The kitchen is an inspiring place to cook and there is really nothing better than enjoying your morning coffee on the deck overlooking silver lake. Thanks Ari!
Visiting LA for business or pleasure? This is a very convenient place to stay. Ari is very helpful with detailed information about your stay, the house and restaurants in the neighborhood. The treehouse is centrally located with free parking right in front. All modern facilities are available. I can really recommend this place, you won't be disappointed.
This was the cutest place! Up in the hills of Silverlake, it does feel like a beautiful treehouse. Stunning little place--very modern feel. Ari made it feel comfortable, lived-in, not like a hotel. Great experience staying here.
He was also very flexible in working with my timing and costs--let me move days around--terrific service.
Fabulous. Ari was very welcoming and responsive. This is a terrific house in a great location. It is crisp and clean, with high quality appliances, kitchen and baths, and very well equipped. The treehouse / hot tub description is right on. Beautiful view from top deck. Hot tub was perfect. His operating instructions and organization are first rate. The guitar, piano and ukeleles in the living room were a treat. Gardens are thoughtful and well maintained. The neighborhood has restaurants, coffee, and shops, all a short walk or bike (he has several). Very peaceful setting. We will stay here again.
