THE NEIGHBORHOOD

We love Atwater because it is so pedestrian-friendly and bike-happy (flat terrain with awesome weather) so that you can pretty much get yourself anywhere. Now the best part - you can get yourself to world class coffee/bakeries (Proof + Village Bakery), acclaimed breweries (Eagle Rock and Golden Road), award winning restaurants, cafes (Canele, Momed, All'Acqua) and uber groovy stores such as Individual Medley and Common.

GETTING AROUND

LA is traditionally a car town however we're increasingly walking and biking everywhere here now. Several of our guests have used ONLY public transport for their trip (originating to/from LAX uand around) and have had a glorious time. Once you're here you can literally walk everywhere, including along the lovely LA River.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

Do yourself a favor and do a quick internet search of Atwater Village and you'll discover fascinating history about Walt Disney (including his regular table at Tam O'Shanters and his homage to our famous Hyperion bridge at Disneyland). Most overlooked is our awesome LA River, which our family walks every morning, marveling at the greater herons, ducks and a myriad of wildlife!

Great rental!

Very nice accommodations. Well appointed with a full kitchen. The owners were helpful and know the local area, ready with recommendations for dining and shopping. We would recommend this rental for your Los Angeles visit.

Visiting my boys

  • 5 of 5

This place is so warm and cozy! Shelli-Anne is a doll and her whole family is lovely. They made me feel like a long time friend.

The location was great for me as my boys live nearby. I was able to get my walking in too. We walked to nearby restaurants and I even walked to the Glendale Americana at Brand (about 40 min) on several occasions.

The weather was perfect throughout my week here. Started raining the day I left, so perfect!

Almost forgot sweet Wally (the shaggy dog) who greeted me/us every time I came back home. He sounds ferocious but he’s a sweetheart,

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom was perfect for our needs and perfectly located. The hosts are so welcoming, generous and interesting. The apartment is well appointed with everything we could possibly need and nicely decorated and the fresh bread baked by Sherri-Anne was over the top! We hope to stay here every time we return to LA.

Super clean, super cute, super friendly.

  • 5 of 5

This little hideaway is a wonderful, quiet retreat. Shelli and Gavin and their daughters were charming and caring, not to mention Wally the dog. I will stay here again, and I recommend the place.

Perfectly charming!

  • 4 of 5

Delightful above garage apartment in Atwater Village area. Be aware there is a stairway up to the apartment that may be difficult for people with bad knees or stability. For us it was conveniently located near Forest Lawn Cemetery for the funeral we were attending that week. There was also good access to local restaurants and shopping.

The host was very friendly and always helpful when we needed it. The place was clean and comfortable with a sweet gift basket of coffee and snacks to start our visit out right. I will definitively want to stay here if we return to the area again.
