This house is exactly as described in listing. It's beautiful, well equipped with anything you might need, and Michael provides guests with ample information about the house and neighborhood. The only problem we had was parking. Our car did not fit in the tight space in the drive way without blocking the sidewalk and we had to find street parking which can be difficult. Unfortunately, we did receive a parking ticket one night :(
All factors considered, I'd definitely stay at Michael's again. It's in a good location, has plenty of room for dinner parties, great air conditioning and is surprisingly serene considering it's just off sunset blvd.
The house was as clean, comfortable, and well outfitted as it looked in the pictures and as I had read in previous reviews. Two couples shared this space comfortably for a long weekend and enjoyed the close proximity (read: walking distance,) to restaurants, coffee, a grocery store, and more. The patio space and hammock felt private and was a great second living space for our stay. When we were not out, we were even able to watch a few World Cup games thanks to the direct TV and wifi at the house. This house has it all. The check out process was a breeze and I would certainly stay here again.
My friends and I had a great time at Michael's place. It's a lovely space with comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and perfect amenities - we particularly liked the malin + goetz toiletries. The best parts though are the patios and the location. For a group of friends who don't get to see each other very often, it was wonderful to be able to eat at home and catch up. The place is set up to be very comfortable and user friendly - it was easy to cook, do laundry, whatever we needed. The location is amazing too. Being able to go get coffee or a meal without getting in the car changes my whole view of LA. Definitely recommend.
Michael's house is beautiful and walking distance from from shops and restaurants. Patio was perfect for drinking a glass of wine in the sun. Beds were super comfortable. It was the ideal place for staying in LA with a couple of my girlfriends and I would totally stay at his place again next time I'm in town. Great experience!
Our experience at the Elevado House was perfect. Obviously the hosts run this as a professional Airbnb and it shows--the directions for arrival were detailed and clear, and there (email hidden) to the house and neighborhood sitting right by the door. The house is pretty spectacular, especially the two patios on a sunny day. Beds are very comfy, maybe a bit tight for 5 people (one of us slept on the big couch). Everything provided--kitchen is well stocked with tools and spices, super nice shampoo/body wash/conditioner from Malin & Goetz, tons of towels, etc.
It's up a steep hill, which we didn't mind, but might be difficult for those who want to walk a lot and have issues with hills (take the secret staircase down to street level!). There are lots of great restaurants and bars walking distance. Parking was super easy on the street, if you have a car, and it's a super safe neighborhood.
Ive been with my friends in Michaels house and was an amazing time, the house is awesome, big, good looking and with all you can need, we had a car so the localization was very good for the places we visited, highly recommended.
Fantastic house, beautifully decorated and in great location for us. Will certainly stay again, thank you!
What a delightful place to stay. Great location near some cool, relaxed neighborhoods (Silver Lake, Los Feliz) and easy access to the hills and Griffith Park. The terrace is perfect for an evening grill. The attention to detail inside is great, and the two generous sized rooms are perfect for egalitarian sharing!
We stayed at Elevado house for three (website hidden) was just (website hidden) is such a lovely place,with many quirky details we enjoyed.The kitchen is more than well equipped,so cooking was a true pleasure.The patios?Breathtaking!And we had our little son with us,who was very appreciative of all the "animals" in house.Highly recommendable!
Group of 6, we had a great time. Nice neighborhood and convenience location for getting around. 1 shower, but 2 bathrooms so wasn't too crazy getting ready. Would stay again and recommend to others.
