Hal, was an amazing host. He made sure I had all the details I would need upon arriving to the house. Once I got there the house it self was beautiful the backyard was like having your own tropical paradise. The location and neighborhood was beautiful as well.
Hallil was a great host -- very responsive and available. The home is nice, with all the amenities you'd expect, and the location is gorgeous; in particular the backyard is beautiful, with a pool, two decks, a BBQ (though we didn't use it), etc. The backyard also has a ton of privacy. There were some small issues with appliances (the heating and dryer weren't working perfectly), but nothing major.
The house itself was very clean and exactly as depicted in the photographs. The highlight of this property is its amazing backyard, bbq, fire pit, and pool area. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the tools and gadgets we needed and we were able to cook numerous meals without any issue. Despite not getting a chance to meet Hallil, he was very responsive to any of our requests and constantly stayed in contact with us during the stay. He seems like a nice guy and we would definitely rent this property again on our next visit.
Hal was a great host! We had everything we needed, it was hard to leave the house. The couch was super comfortable, the kitchen is huge, and the pool, hot tub, and fire pit were such a treat. The neighborhood is very peaceful and there's a great view from the top of the hill. We would definitely stay here again.
Great host and great location. Would recommend this house. Close, walking distance to shows, spacious rooms and amazing garden with pool and hot tub.
What an amazing weekend! Hal was absolutely wonderful, available and accommodating. The house is situated perfectly in Silverlake. We spent most of our time outside enjoying the BEAUTIFUL pool and backyard. The house was incredibly clean and comfy. Look no further for your Los Angeles getaway!
We loved staying at Hal's house in Silverlake. The house is even better in person. Hal was a great host. He even had a playpen for our 7 month old. We look forward to staying here again.
