About the property

2 Bed + office,1 Bath, Prime Silverlake/ Echo Park Vintage House

Built in 1908, this vintage house is a very special furnished 2 bedroom, plus den/office. 1 bath, located in Silverlake/ Echo Park.

Huge fenced in grass yard, that runs along one side of the house. Park car next to front porch behind rolling fence. There are many unique features such as custom French mahogany doors through out. Living room and bedrooms have doors to a very private mahogany side deck (8 feet x 40 feet) which surrounds 80 year old yucca trees, which has been a wonderful place to entertain year round...a sweet Shangri-La to enjoy breakfast or just relax. Dining room is bright with French windows, and wainscoting, with dining table for six people. Retro-kitchen is fully loaded/ stocked kitchen which has vintage stove, dishwasher, butcher block. Mud room off kitchen has washer, dryer, and fridge with back door entrance. The front porch has a nice view of Palm lined street....that's a great place to have a cup-of-joe! The bedrooms each have ceiling fans and French doors, most days there is a nice breeze that flows through. A queen bed in each room that also enjoy side deck. Wood flooring throughout, except for office/ den which has a dark carpet. It is currently being used as an office/ lunge. I will include pictures with a cot included. Vintage bathroom is located between both bedrooms includes bath/ shower combo.

This house may not be suitable for toddlers, babies are okay but those just learning to walk may have a difficult time with porch steps and yard that is not level with the house ( for viewing). We welcome children but want to be clear about the steps or safety reasons.

One of the best things about the house is that you really feel like you’ve left the city, even though you are walking distance to great food/cafes/yoga, and all the eclectic options surrounding the neighborhood, a 15-20 minute walk to the Silverlake Reservoir or to Echo Park Lake for a paddle boat ride. No need to get in a car to take an early morning yoga class at Urth or Bar Method( 5 min), and then stroll to Silverlake Juice or Moon Juice afterwards. Want to have a drink without worrying about driving, you can hit or Los Globos, Hungry Crow in Silverlake or head towards Echo Park ( 12 minute walk) and check out Wine For The People, The Echo, Elf Vegan Cafe for nighttime fun. The Metro bus stop is a few minutes to Sunset Blvd. you can take bus east for Metro Station ( direct) or take it west and end up on Pacific Coast Highway,at the beach.

About Tnah Di Donato

Mario has been an actor here in Hollywood for nearly 25 years, and I have been in the entertainment industry for most of my life. We are a very renaissance type family raising three thundering teens and one 20 year old Singer Song writer with Columbia Records. Mario and I collaborate on a few ventures together which include Bella Faccia Foto (, a socially responsible coffee roasting company called Belli Fratelli ( Good Brother's In Italian) Coffee Roasters (, which we hope to grow and pass down to our sons. Tnah traded her title as Hollywood Agent for Postpartum Mother Roasting + ceremonialist, holding space in ceremony/ woman's retreats and serving mothers here in Los Angeles with The Sacred Living Movement (

We recently sold our cafe Steampunk Coffee Bar and Kitchen , which was known for the best waffle and fried chicken in the San Fernando Valley, but still continue to work with Vito's Pizza ( located in West Hollywood, Santa Monica and soon to open in Downtown Los Angeles. This pizzeria was opened by us but is our bother Vito's joint, and truly one of the best pizza's in Los Angeles.

We absolutely put all our love into each venture we believe in and hope that our reviews speak to the level of care and attention we provide to our guests while staying at Vintage Reservoir.

Tnah Di Donato purchased this house in 2000

Why Tnah Di Donato chose Silver Lake

This home holds our heart, it was the first home we manifested in our early 30's. We had a vision of what we wanted for our family and it was exactly what we were looking for! We purchased this home during a very busy market, and managed to be the chosen family out of 15 other offers. We birthed three of our sons in a water pool in the living room. We made so many little character improvements which give the home so much charm. It was very hard to leave, but with four sons and one bathroom we would have either had to do some more major remodeling and it still would not have addressed the right schools for our boys which were not available in our community at the time we needed.

We had the house occupied by four tenants after we left, each one of those four couples either got married or pregnant while staying in our home, so it speaks to the love that fills this sweet house.

A week was spent in the house as I was getting it ready for listing, so I knew first hand what was needed to make it feel like a home and not a vacation rental. Everything was really thought through in every way unlike many of vacation rentals I have stayed in! Soft cotton bedding, every cooking utensil you could think of to make yummy meals, much consideration went into decor.

Silverlake is a very diverse community! While the hipsters have infiltrated these lands, there is still a big mix of the original Los Angelino population which include Philipinos and Mexicans, this is what adds the color to our community! Our property itself is like a Shangri-La within the urban city. The house is perched up off the ground and enclosed for privacy, but within walking distance to Sunset Blvd. where you can walk in either direction to find an array of cool food joints and boutiques.

What makes this house unique

When describing this home I like to share that this is a house of pure love and creativity. We really seem to attract a load of iincredibly talented ndustry peeps, which have included Broadway performers coming through to work at Pantages + Dorothy Chandler, (both within close proximity to the house.) Actors, writers, singer - song writers, who want the peace of our home, safety and privacy while being in the pulse of town.

Lovely Oasis Nestled in SilverLake

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate to stay in this beautiful home nestled in the community of Silverlake. The home was beautifully decorated with lovely details throughout the home from beautiful photography and art work throughout the home, stunning furniture with unique touches down to the salt and pepper shaker. The beds were super comfortable and there was plenty of space for the 5 of us to sleep comfortably. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need and more and even had a washer and dryer to keep up with laundry. The wrap around deck was my favorite part. It was a lovely place to escape with a book and some coffee to relax and recharge. I will definitely stay here again the next time I am in LA and would recommend it to friends without a moment's hesitation.

Felt right at home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

It really felt at home here. Tnah's silverlake home is well maintained, perfectly cozy, beautifully decorated and walking distance to tons of restaurants and shops. It has everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

You'll love the outside porch that runs the length of the home, perfect to enjoy coffee in the morning or relaxing in the evenings. Everything you possibly need is thoughtfully stocked, from plenty of fresh towels, to even a few toiletries in case you forget some things, like me :-) The bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped if you're going to be cooking...and it's adorable! I really enjoyed my stay here and would be happy to return again and again.

Thank you Tnah for thoughtfully creating a beautiful space for your guests to feel right at home at!

Perfectly stocked and located bungalow for seeing the sights of Los Angeles!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 just spent several days at this home in Silver lake. It was the best rental home we’ve ever stayed in. The kitchen was fully stocked and there were even some fresh snacks awaiting us when we arrived. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom along with all the toiletries you’d need. The owners were very responsive, checked on us several times and were spot on with their recommendations for places to eat and things to see in the area.

The home is pleasantly private and the side deck was a great place for relaxing. We happen to be there during an extreme heat wave and the owners promptly brought a 3rd window AC unit to help keep the house cool and comfortable at night.

We were able to walk to several awesome restaurants and ice cream shops and the house was conveniently located to enjoy all the sights in LA.

We would definitely recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit LA and would stay here again if we find ourselves in the area again!

Thank you Tnah and Mario for sharing your home with our family. You definitely made our trip top notch.

Lovely Silverlake Home

  • 5 of 5

After traveling to LA for 5 weeks for the arrival of our granddaughter.... We arrived at the house and immediately felt at home. There is a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy and a house that has everything you could need for your stay. Sitting underneath the palm trees was so peaceful. It’s well located so we were able to travel into downtown to visit our daughter and her family and also were very close to Runyon Canyon and Griffith Park and took advantage of the hiking trails every day. There are some great eateries nearby markets,,,coffee shops. All in all a great stay and we hope to visit again soon

Perfect home with charm and everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Could not imagine a more perfect set-up. Location is also ideal if you don't have a car, as so much is easily walkable. Tnah and Mario are also the best hosts. Can't wait to return.

Car: not necessary

Fantastic location! A short stroll to El Cafecito Organico and only a few blocks from a popular pocket of hot spots like Pho cafe, Gobi Mongolian BBQ, Moon Juice, Thirsty Crow, Urth Yoga, Bar Method, Dusty's, Lark Cake Shop and The Food Lab where they sell the BEST ice cream sandwiches! No need for guilt after that refreshing treat, the Silver Lake Reservoir and Echo Park is only a mile away! Talk about convenience! If you want to go out at night and not have to get in the car walk to The Echo, Mohawk Bend to the east, Los Globas night club and Silverlake Lounge, Stella to the west... All walking distance!
