About the property

Walk 2 Blocks to Sunset Junction's Cafes and Shops Or Stay And Enjoy The View!

Built in 1923, remodeled in 2013, and bursting with vintage details, this street level (but upper floor) apartment is 2 blocks from all of the restaurants and boutiques of Sunset Junction. Views of the Hollywood Sign and Griffith Park Observatory are yours to enjoy from the old fashioned sun porch off the master bedroom. The eclectic, cabin-like look and feel has all the comforts you would want in a city apartment, including a large flat screen TV, in-unit washer/dryer, full dining room setup, full bath, and a nice -sized kitchen. We also have a VERY easy check-in process, with the key easily accessible via lockbox. If you appreciate design, you will enjoy discovering all of the little vintage touches, such as the antique doorknobs-turned-coat rack, the suitcase end table, and the french iron bistro table.

About Robin Wallace and Tim Snowber

We began restoring buildings in Silverlake in 1997, but it's been a lifelong passion. Tim has a background in set decorating and woodworking. Robin has a background in art history and photography. We use salvaged/eco-friendly building materials, antique furnishings, and green cleaning products whenever possible.

We have many years of experience as landlords and hosts, and are known for being responsive, service-minded, and reasonable with pricing and management.

Robin Wallace and Tim Snowber purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Robin Wallace and Tim Snowber chose Central LA

We love this part of Silver Lake because we can walk almost everywhere we need to go, but when we need to drive, the 5, 101, 110, and 134 freeways are very close by. We've always loved the trees, the architecture, and the neighborhood feel of Silver Lake. This building has a 'Tales of the City' vibe to it, which we have worked hard to preserve.

What makes this apartment unique

Whether you are interested in architecture, sightseeing, music, food, wine, artisan boutiques, or the outdoors, Silver Lake has all of this and more to offer... we love this unit in particular because it has the convenience of a street level unit with the benefits of top-floor views of the city and hills.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is super cute and everything was really easy from the beginning with Robin and Tim. They will answer your questions immediately. The best thing in my opinion is the location, you are just next, 5 minutes walking distance, to a really nice area of cafes, shops and restaurants, which is not easy to find in LA. Silver Lake in general is very central to everything. We are a group of 4 friends from Amsterdam and we liked being in a place where we could get everywhere quickly.

Just Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Tim actually upgraded us to the 2BR Craftsman cottage in Silver Lake to better accommodate our larger group, which was very thoughtful and appreciated. It was beautiful, in a safe and convenient neighborhood just steps away from coffee shops, restaurants and the farmer's market on Sunset Blvd. Tim was responsive to any questions I had prior to our visit, and gave us detailed directions on how to get in to the house for check-in, which was very easy and convenient, and how to lock up when we checked out. We didn't get to meet them during our stay, as check-in and check-out were self-serve, and we didn't have any need to contact them with any issues, so it was like the house was truly ours for the weekend. We rented a car and didn't have any problem finding a spot on the street. The house was beyond charming and everything was functional and comfortable - we cooked in the kitchen a few times and they had everything we needed to prepare and enjoy the meals (with a gorgeous view of the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory out the wall of windows in the kitchen). I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Terrific house in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

As soon as we opened the front door we felt at home. Tim and Robin have made this house very cosy and clean.The beds were super comfortable and we loved the kitchen and sun porch with the view of the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory in the distance.

Even though we didn't get to meet our hosts we were given clear instructions and Tim was always contactable by phone.

The location was perfect, we were in LA for a week and did not have a car. We walked to the coffee shops, bars and Metro or jump on a bus. The area felt safe and we would definitely recommend it. There are interesting local designer shops in the area which are worth checking out.

Great Location, Great Hosts

  • 4 of 5

This location is good because I have family in Silver Lake where there is a dearth of hotels. It is clean, cozy and simple and I loved having early-morning coffee on the porch, admiring the view of the Hollywood sign and the Observatory. My only suggestion would be to have instructions on how to operated the satellite TV. Thanks, Tim!

Great apartment with charming vintage feel and updated amenities.

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming property in a great location. The place has an old-time feel while still offering modern amenities like central air conditioning. We especially liked the enclosed porch off the back bedroom, from which you can see the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory. And the washer and dryer--what a luxury. Parking was easy, and lots of essential services (restaurants and bars!) are within walking distance. We highly recommend this property.

Cute home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious and clean two bed rooms house in Sliver Lake. It is very close driving distance to West Hollywood, where we went to The Comedy Store. And also easy to get to from the Dodger Stadium. We had a very fun weekend in LA. Thank you for hosting us.

Nearest Beach
14 Miles
Santa Monica
Car: not necessary

This property is 2 miles from Griffith Park, with hiking trails, horseback riding, the Zoo, the Observatory, the Autry Museum, Travel Town, the Carousel, and Shane's Inspiration. Loads of fun for everyone. It's also nearby Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock House in Barnsdall Park, MOCA, Disney Hall, The Echo/Echoplex and all that Echo Park has to offer. Plus Amoeba in Hollywood. Lots to look forward to.
