Originally from Wisconsin, I have lived in LA since 1996. We have lived in our house since 1999 and built the pool house in 2005. We have two daughters, 8 and 6.
Andrea and Rich were excellent hosts. The poolhouse was great and the setting is beautiful. The poolhouse is back from the main house and is private. We felt right at home as they made our stay very comfortable. They even had snacks for us in the fridge upon our arrival. Rich had some great recommendations for restaurants. The location is excellent and close to many good coffee shops and bars. Definitely recommended!
We stayed for a few days in the pool house, and it was great. The house is in a perfect location in Silverlake and being able to use the pool was a nice treat too. Andrea and her family were wonderful hosts and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. We'll definitely stay here again!
We stayed for a few weeks with our 2 kids in this lovely pool house- and we enjoyed every minute!
The Hutchman family was very helpful. Our kids LOVED the pool. The house is very well located. We are certainly going back!
Great Place in Silverlake!
We stayed for 8 days and loved it. Our kids loved the Pool, my inlaws loved the Pool house, and we loved the area. There are so many nice fruit trees in the back yard. This place is very peacfull to come back to after being out seeing the sites.
A very enjoyable and comfortable stay for our first visit to the States. Loved the pool. Hosts were very friendly. Felt safe walking around the area to reach shops and restaurants. It was disconcerting that one set of patio doors did not lock. The hot water in the shower was tempermamental - it became hot eventually. Good idea to have inside/outside shower as you could shower straight from the pool without going through the house.
Andrea and her fam we're wonderful hosts. Their place is beautiful and I would definitely come to stay again!
Andrea and Rich couldn't have been nicer. We felt so at home that it was terribly hard to leave. We loved the pool and hot tub, the beautiful patio for meals outside, the generous treats and food when we arrived, the cool outdoor shower (our 2-yr old played in it for ages every day -- do we owe extra for the water bill!?), and the good laughs with their family. Gorgeous family, gorgeous place. (Note to future renters: make time for supper at Forage. Delicious!)
Perfect house and perfect guest. Nothing more to say.
Andrea and her husband where great hosts!
We had a great time and felt right at home in the heart of Silverlake. Not only were we able to swim lots, went for walks around the Reservoir and were close to great cafes in both Echo Park and Silverlake.
Only downside was the shower - it was a poolhouse shower so essentially in an enclosed outdoor space. It was adequate, but none of our group particularly enjoyed the experience of using the shower and it would not be pleasant if the weather was colder.
Would definitely recommend!
This is a great place to rent in Los Angeles and Andrea and her husband could not have ben nicer. The setting is beautiful and the pool house itself is a joy to stay in. We also enjoyed the neighbourhood, and would definitely come back for our next visit.
