My wife and I spent two weeks of our honeymoon staying in Leonardo's fabulous home. Let me just say that the pictures, although good, do not give a full sense of how amazing the view is! We were utterly knocked out and it was a privilege to look out at it every morning with our coffees in hand.
It is located in a very peaceful, quiet part of Silverlake and we had no problems with noise.
The apartment was very well equipped with everything we needed and really, it's impossible to fault.
Leonardo was a joy to deal with, he was very communicative and laid back, answering all of our questions and leaving us local restaurant tips.
The reservation was canceled 44 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a delightful stay at Leonardo's. The apartment was spacious and comfortable with an engaging collection of art and books. The view was unparalleled and the pool was a lifesaver during some unusually hot weather. The kitchen is well-stocked, though I confess we didn't use it very heavily. Leonardo was very available, pleasant and flexible, and responded to calls or texts promptly. We hope to stay here again.
Leonardo's house was our own little getaway-in-LA: within easy driving distance to hotspots like West Sunset Blvd, Downtown, Little Tokyo and West Hollywood yet tucked away on a quiet hill within the Silverlake neighbourhood. As the ad says, it is a natural oasis. Leonardo was great at responding to our requests and very respectful of our space. We hope to stay at his house again if we return to LA!
Just wanted to add another glowing recommendation for Leonardo's place. We arrived completely jet lagged after a trip to Japan. Leonardo had thoughtfully left a welcome note, along with fresh apples, crackers, and some delicious fresh tangerines from the backyard tree.
The flat itself is completely serene. You have a gorgeous view--hard to appreciate the scope in photos--and an incredibly lush garden with all kinds of plants. Amazing natural light. Feels very homey, and yet not like you are living among someone else's personal things. Many places to sit and work: the outdoor seating, inside by the fire, at his desk, at the breakfast table, etc. This place is fairly large as a one bedroom ,but it felt even larger with all the nooks. Leonardo was very responsive to any questions, and made a real effort to have us feel welcome and comfortable.
Tip: the bar Cliff's Edge on Sunset is a great place to unwind with cocktails after a long day.
I give this place my highest recommendation.
This place is extremely charming and full of character. It was a fantastic choice and the view was stunning. Very well-equipped property with extremely helpful and gracious host. Unique opportunity to feel like a native Angeleno while high in the hills of this friendly silverlake neighborhood.
Leonardo's photos do not do this place justice! I absolutely loved my stay, the home is perfect, great location for my travels/work and Leonardo is a fantastic host. I was just disappointed i had to leave after a week!
We enjoyed our stay here very much. The photos represent the view with complete accuracy; it was a pleasure to eat outside and enjoy the cool breezes. Leonardo was very accommodating. The place is comfortable and quirky, with a very homey feeling. Great restaurants and night life only a short (though steep!) walk away.
This spot is a small piece of paradise no pictures will do justice! Me and my family had the pleasure of staying a week at Leonardos place in Silver Lake – and we did not want to leave. Leonardo was a fantastic and generous host, making us all feel at home in this beautiful and very personal house. The garden is an adventure, the pool fantastic and the view to Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood sign and hills mind blowing. We will never forget this very personal and beautiful experience. Please take care of this place, we would like to come back again!
I cannot speak highly enough of this property or of it's owner - the location, high in the hills in Silverlake, is stunning and peaceful with incredible grounds. With a choice of outdoor spaces as well as a great pool you won't want to leave (and most days, we didn't...).
The house itself has floor to ceiling windows to ensure you don't miss the view, with a great open plan kitchen and living room. We loved hosting friends and cooking at night.
Leonardo was attentive to our needs - making sure we could avoid 'carmageddon' with alternate directions to LAX - while still leaving us in peace.
All around, a fantastic stay.
