Sweet, Safe, and Perfect for Families
We stayed at this beautiful Silverlake/Atwater Property in December. I stayed there with my husband and two children, ages 16 and 9 and another friend and her two children, ages 14 and 2. We chose it because of it's fantastic location that is close to lots of cool shops and restaurants and it's situation on a quiet leafy street. The neighbours were all lovely people and when I took the two youngest children out for evening strolls they all said hello as we admired all the Christmas lights they were putting up. The house is surrounded by a high fence with a massive large sliding wooden gate which is great for privacy and security. There is a gorgeous grassy courtyard in the front with tables and chairs as well as a few kids toys. There is also a little tiled walkway with a bench and a hidden ashtray for those who smoke as the house is smoke free. The house itself was so cute, decorated with all sorts of vintage items. It was like a little art deco house with a real hipster feel. Even though it was so gorgeous, we felt totally comfortable at all times even with kids. The beds were amazing - high and plush and the linen was beautiful white cotton. Our bedroom had a little room off of it with a single bed for a child, which was great for us travelling with youngsters who want to sleep near the parents. Io the owner also brought us over a baby cot and lent us her son's pram for the stay. So thoughtful and kind. There was also a third office room that we were able to put a mattress on the floor for our oldest son so he could have privacy. The older kids were stoked with the TV projector which took up a whole wall! We were also offered discount tickets to tourist sites, given a fruit basket and a welcome gift by our accommodating hostess. At NO time did we ever feel unsafe in the house or the neighbourhood. We come from a small seaside village in Australia, population 300, and felt completely at home. Only my husband had ever spent time in Australia and we were a bit nervous about being in such a big city but it felt like we had a home away from home. We also had a huge vehicle and although there was no parking on the property itself, there was always parking available on the street and our car was totally safe. It was a worry free vacation in the big smoke! GREAT STAY AND CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!
