Our stay in Atwater
My family and I stayed at this wonderful house for the month of February 2012. Io, the property's owner who lives in the house at the rear of the garden, couldn't have been more accommodating to my family's needs. We have a 9 month old and a two year old and Io sourced all of the paraphernalia required (highchairs, changing table etc). She also lent us many of her two year old son's toys and even babysat for us one evening and invited us for an amazing meal on another occasion. The house is very well equipped and retains many of its original features. The garden is idyllic and also very private and secure. The kitchen comes complete with everything you could ask for and the 12'x8' video cinema screen was a treat for the whole family. Atwater is a family friendly area and the main strip (Glendale Blvd) is within walking distance and has several great bars, restaurants and coffee shops - as well as a library, a cool thrift store and a Bikram yoga centre. LA's crowning glory, Griffith Park, is only a 10 minute drive away and is walkable within 45 minutes. LAX can be reached by car within 30 mins and Downtown and Hollywood within 20 minutes. The Americana shopping mall is a 10 minute drive as are the bars, shops and restaurants of Silverlake. We would certainly recommend renting this property and intend to return within the next year. Io and her family were the perfect hosts, the house is delightful and Atwater is both quaint and trendy in equal measure.
