Glamping- an indoor-outdoor experience! Check local weather forecast, don't book during rainstorms, were not 100% weatherproof. Love the outdoors but need heating? We got what you crave- a bit of luxury while you pretend to rough it. You'll sleep in a private rooftop bedroom.
Dig the view! Relax! Renew!
Scheherazade was the beguiling Persian queen who kept her husband enthralled w tales of A Thousand Nights and a Night.
Create your own fantasy in our fabulous silken Bedouin-style tent w colorful strands of ambient lighting, a heater that looks like a fireplace and the best city views in town!
For clarity, there is NO SMOKING in the tent. Do Not disable the smoke detector in order to bypass this reasonable command. If you cannot agree to step outside to smoke, please don't stay with us.
The tent has a sofa inside with a queen-size futon on a frame pushed against it, so its extra wide for lounging and easy to re-orient yourself when you want to get under the covers. A nest of pillows and bolsters to prop up, two fluffy feather pillows for sleeping and several comforters and duvets await, plus an Irish woolen blanket for maximum snuggles.
Indoors in the main house downstairs, there's a full bathroom with an Asian-style bidet toilet, shower/tub combo from 1925 and artisanal tile sink with a peacock feather design and mosaic tile detail. We expect you to leave the bath as clean as you find it.
The rooftop boasts fabulous city views westward to the ocean and offers gorgeous sunset vistas. Please make use of ashtrays provided and never drop cigarettes etc. on the wooden deck.
Be advised Silverlake and EchoPark Lake are occasional seasonal home to mosquitoes in warm weather. You will want to keep the zippered mosquito net flap closed throughout your stay. Mosquito repellent is available on the glass table just outside in a pump applicator if needed.
We have a flexible policy regarding late check in, however, early check in may not be possible due to the amount of time required to change out the spaces. Suggest grabbing a meal or a drink locally and giving us adequate time to make your room up. Thanks!
Guests should consult House Rules in advance and ask their guests to read them also. Wifi password is listed under House Manual, the signal is called VIX. Password is my 10-digit phone number (last 10 digits).
Guests have use of guitars and instruments, and access to the main bath with traditional tub/shower combo.
Our most successful guests anticipate eating the majority of their meals elsewhere, but you are welcome to prepare a light meal here during your stay.
Coffee and tea will be left out on the kitchen island. Please help yourself to the kettle or cappuccino machine, we will leave cups out for you so you shouldn't let yourself into our cupboards nor take fragile glassware outdoors. Clean up after yourself. Leave No Trace: place dishes in dishwasher after rinsing. Thx!
There is a fridge and a gas grill on the roof if you would like to use either. The fridge will need to be plugged into a specific outlet just above the fridge. The fridge lives outdoors and is weathered, but keeps food and drinks cold. The BBQ is gas and is pretty easy to use once you turn on the valve.
Please be careful not to leave food or stray wrappers, etc. anywhere on the roof as we have a lot of squirrel traffic! Please remove trash and place in bins in kitchen or on the street in our city bins. Thanks!
Interazione con gli ospiti
We are happy to spend some time with you when you check in, show you the property, and are usually around for directions and suggestions. We are very friendly! Expect to see us around sunset, when we head up to the rooftop deck for the lightshow with a cocktail!
Please be aware that the rooftop is a shared space and available for all guests and residents to enjoy, although the tent is your private room.
Airbnb is fundamentally different from a hotel. We do not permit our guests to host parties or disturb residents by staying up all night. You are a guest in someone's home. You are responsible for cleaning up after yourself, particularly in shared spaces like outdoors and the bathroom. We do not provide maid service, cleaning fees insure you arrive to a clean space which you must maintain for other guests, so everyone enjoys their experience equally.
Fitting into your hosts household gracefully requires sensitivity and considerate behavior. Be sure you read and understand the spirit of House Rules. Be aware that you and the other guests staying here are Sharing the Space with homeowners who are hosting you and treat their space with respect.

Altre cose da evidenziare
Take the FlyAway shuttle from LAX to Union Station. It only takes about 45 minutes and costs a reasonable $8. You'll be super close to us and near Sunset Blvd, our cross street. Chinatown and Olvera Street are walking distance.
Have lunch at Phillipe's French Dip sandwich across the street- I recommend the lamb and blue cheese w the spicy mustard.
Then catch an Uber to our place from there, or hop a Metro City bus going down Sunset Bl. west.
We have a long set of stairs leading down to our house- great for privacy, but please use caution! Although it's rare that we have rain in LA, the stairs will be slippery if we do, and you will need to be smart about taking extra precaution to avoid potential injury. Wearing sensible shoes on the stairs is prudent. Please don't use the stairs in a rush!
We want to enjoy your stay with us!!
Non U.S. citizens: as a courtesy we ask you be aware we have different traffic laws here. Always park you car in the same direction as the other vehicles when choosing street parking. This will prevent your car from being cited with a ticket or towed away. Read signs for possible parking restrictions when parking in business districts and do not expect the area is not patrolled for violations. Check out more caveats in my 'Getting Around' section.
About TIPPING: While visiting our restaurants or patronizing other service-oriented businesses, like bars, hair/nail salons, massages, spas, etc. remember it is not only customary, but expected to leave a 15-20% tip for service.
The U.S. is one of the few countries that pay way below average minimum wages. While minimum wage in Los Angeles is a dismal $7.50/hour, tipped jobs like waiters above often pay around $2 an hour, and these employees are taxed by the state for the tips they are expected to earn without their confirmation of actual earned income. Many workers in Los Angeles must keep several jobs and roommates in order to afford rents and utilities.
A good rule of thumb when tipping is $4-$5 for a taxi, Uber, or Lyft, $1-$2 each time the server comes to the table to deliver food or drinks, or 20% of the bill if you're happy with the service, whichever is higher. While in a bar, tip $1-$2 per round, each time a drink is ordered. Hair salons or massages, tip $10-$20. It allows service workers to live here.
Los Angeles has the third highest cost-of-housing in the country, just behind New York City and San Francisco. Wages here are not commensurate with our cost of living, so Always Tip Generously.
Try nearby Beverly Hot Springs for a soak and service. Real geo-thermal water rich with minerals makes Beverly Hot Springs the best spa in LA.
Tue-Wed-Thur they have 'Happy Hour' pricing before 2pm, with deep discounts on massages, facials, etc. Admission is free when you purchase a service, $30-$40 if you just go to 'take the waters.'
**Book w confidence! The bathroom is always clean when you arrive! Towels and bedding are Always freshly laundered! During your stay I will ensure the standards are maintained.
Common areas outdoors are swept and maintained. Trash is removed as needed and the kitchen sink is free of dirty dishes and debris. Exterior glass tables are cleaned regularly.
That said, please remember you are booking an outdoor space that is exposed to the elements. It will not be as clean as the indoor spaces, our trees drop leaves around the clock, and the tent is right under an active ficus shedding leaves and seed pods. These frequently find their way inside the tent, either by the steady breezes that blow in from the ocean, or attached to your shoes.
These factors are beyond our control, but should not interfere with your enjoyment, nor negatively impact your review of your experience.
Should you have Any concerns please bring them to my attention and they will be promptly addressed. We strive to maintain the highest standards possible and want you to have a fantastic experience while staying w us!
Thank you again!
• Check-in time is between 4-10 PM. You must make arrangements prior. Yes, we live here and will be present throughout your stay.

Sick guests should contact me prior to arrival for a refund.
We do not check guests in after 11pm, so plan accordingly. My phone goes into 'sleep mode' at 11pm and I will not receive texts or calls until 11am the following morning. Please do not contact me about your early arrival in the morning. Check in is @4, and there will be a guest in your room till noon.
If you Must leave your baggage, open the gate to property and either stash it behind the wooden fence to the right of the gate or bring downstairs into courtyard by murals. If you have a car, please keep your things with you until check in.
We do Not permit our guests to host parties or disturb residents by staying up all night.
My son's unit downstairs is not part of your Airbnb experience and you should respect their privacy.
NO third party bookings accepted via Instant Book. Guests must be the Airbnb account holder.
PARKING: Do not displace me from my parking space in front of the gate. Residents park on Silverwood Terrace and you must respect the limited availability of parking and not displace them. Park around the corner on Angelus where parking is plentiful.
You must obey all traffic laws when parking in our neighborhood. Never park your car facing the wrong direction, you will be towed and ticketed by the city. Your car must be parked facing the same direction as traffic travels. Ignore this at your expense!
Smoking in the tent is Not allowed. Please step outside and always use an ashtray. :)
1) You break it, you buy it:
Bottom Line: your security deposit is there in case you break something. That said, Airbnb will not charge your security deposit unless a claim is filed after the fact.
2) Bathroom Etiquette:
Please maintain the bathroom during your stay and leave it in useable condition for the next person without having to clean up after you. If you lift the toilet seat, lower it again so the bathroom is in satisfactory condition for the next person. This is more important than you might think. We have an Asian-style bidet toilet. If you decide to use the bidet, be sure to wipe the toilet seat dry after use.
Please be extremely considerate of the household if you use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Care should be taken not to wake sleeping residents by walking on tip toes and closing doors softly.
Personal toiletries should be kept in one of the baskets provided next to the sink. We provide soaps and shampoos in the blue bowl next to the shower.
Towels are stacked next to the sink in the jacuzzi bath or next to shower in the main bath and you can use hooks on the bathroom door to dry them. Please don't share host's towels or hang your towels with ours. If you use a towel, don't fold it back up and place it with the clean towels, it's been used, so hang it to dry.
Always use a bath mat when you step out of the shower and Return the bath mat to the side of the tub before exiting the bathroom.
Due to severe California drought, we must ask you and your guest to limit bathing to once per day. Long showers are not allowed, please respect Californian's limited resources. There are excellent Korean spas we can direct you to if you're craving more water than that, but the DWP has placed severe restrictions on our water use, and we expect you to behave sustainably while rationing is in place.
ALWAYS KEEP YOUR KEY WITH YOU.
Both the front deadbolt and sliding glass/screen doors are locked at all times, please avoid locking the front doorknob as we may find ourselves locked out during the course of quick trash removal, etc.
Please get in the habit of coming and going through the front, wooden door in the living room and avoid taking the shortcut through the kitchen sliding glass/screen. The sliding glass door cannot be secured from outside so please enter and exit by the front door and always take your key with you, just like a hotel.
While it may seem like a hassle to walk around to the door and use your key, we won't check that you have a key prior to going out, and don't want you to be locked out. We have a lot of musical gear and need to keep the house locked. .
Our most successful guests anticipate eating the majority of their meals elsewhere.
Use common areas such as the kitchen with deference to permanent residents: some of our guests arrive sick, so we expect you to leave us a germ-free kitchen by avoiding preparing meals here.
We are offering you a bedroom with use of a mini fridge, coffee maker and a microwave. These are standard motel amenities, our kitchen is for our daily use.
We suggest you buy bottled water for your daily needs.
If you plan on bringing home to-go food, you must eat it immediately, no long-term storage. Please, NO to-go Korean food leftovers. These are rarely eaten and extremely stinky to dispose of.
Outdoors we ask you to use soft voices after 11 pm. but are welcome to hang out and enjoy the views as late as you like. The deck is above our living room, please walk softly and avoid dragging furniture around.
If you wear heavy or high-heeled shoes, please remove them once inside so our son who has his own apartment downstairs is not disturbed by sound of heels on our wood floors.
You may see my son using the stairs, and he may be dressed for Cosplay. :D Don't be put off if he doesn't greet you.
If you've been out in rainy or muddy environments, always remove your shoes and leave them by the front door so our floors and carpets remain clean.
While inside, use soft shoes or bare feet.
7) Your Room:
Our environments represent a substantial investment of money and labor to maintain and you must respect our furnishings. ALWAYS zip up tent and close Velcro flaps, even at Checkout.
Please make your bed upon rising. If you toss pillows and bedding on the floor, or take them out of the tent to use on the deck chairs or otherwise soil them by leaving stains you will be Charged a Cleaning Fee;
we provide you with lots of pillows and blankets which we dislike seeing on the floor.
Fold unnecessary blankets and place on sofa back or in zippered plastic bags provided. Please help us cut down on laundry and extend the life of our bedding by not throwing it on ground.
Also, no sex on top of the comforters. ;)
Our washers don't comfortably accommodate fluffy comforters and must be commercially cleaned, and really that's what your sheets are for. Stains incur cleaning fees, use the sheets.
We expect you to responsibly dispose of used condoms by placing them in the trash can provided. Seriously, don't leave them in the bedding for us to handle.
Avoid using your face creams with benzoyl peroxide before bed, please. They leave bleach spots on our pillowcases, spoiling our bedding. Please reserve strong facial lotions for daytime use and wash off before retiring. Likewise, we appreciate your cleaning your hands before using our musical instruments. Thanks!
Please help us keep our household expenses manageable so we can continue to keep our rates low. TURN OFF the LIGHTS and Heater in Bathroom, & Your Bedroom When You GO OUT for the day.
There's hooks on the back of the bathroom door for bath towels to air dry, but best you pop them into the dryer for a few minutes. Wrinkled clothing is easily remedied by popping into the drier with your damp towel for a few minutes- remove promptly!
If you would like to do one (1) load of laundry while you're staying with us, we will provide the liquid soap, and fabric softener. Laundry is $5 additional. Please don't start a load of laundry late at night. The machines are above my son's bed and the noise will keep him awake.
please NO smoking inside the tent! Aside from the smell attaching to the bedding and fabrics, it is a fire hazard. DO NOT disable the smoke detector, it puts our property and all the residents at risk. We have had issues with guests unwittingly starting fire before and will not excuse any deliberate attempt to avoid this simple command. If you cannot smoke outside please stay elsewhere.
We are a 420-friendly home, but would appreciate you smoking in one of our lovely outdoor spaces.
Please promptly remove your stubs from all shared spaces. Ashes and butts will blow freely around the property if not removed after use. We don't smoke tobacco and don't like to handle your cigarette butts. Also please bring your empty bottles and cans in and place in recycling containers.
Airbnb is about personal responsibility and sustainability.
10) What's Free?
Coffee and tea will be left out on the kitchen island. Please help yourself to the kettle or cappuccino machine, we will leave small metal plates, reusable plastic water bottles and cups out for you so you shouldn't let yourself into our cupboards nor take fragile glassware outdoors. Clean up after yourself. Leave No Trace: place dishes in dishwasher after rinsing. Thx!
Thanks for staying with us, and we appreciate you taking care of our home!

Hi! I'm Victoria, an indie filmmaker and musician/performer working on a self-financed rock musical with my partner Mark, who also lives with me part of the week, when he's not flying with the airlines.
Mark is a DGA member and an assistant director for 28 years.
We both love to collect guitars, exotic instruments and gear.
We also love our neighborhood and understand why you want to visit!
Silver Lake is the center of gravity for artists and free thinkers, yogis and performance artists, writers and musicians, foodies and vegans, and a magnet for every underground subculture.
We are locals steeped in the underground ethos of our neighborhood and the rock and performance art community we inhabit and nurture.
I spent the 90s putting on local events that combined various sub-cultures into themed parties called The Big Bang with my then-partner Greg Shaw, a rock journalist, indie record company legend, and music fanatic.
These days I'm usually home finishing editing our film with my partner Mark.
Please don't hesitate to ask if there's anything we can do to help make your stay memorable.
Thanks for reading my bio and we look forward to meeting you,
Victoria & Mark
