My family and I still miss La Clede ave, we stayed there for several months earlier this year. It's a sanctuary, and a gorgeous retreat. From the kitchen appliances and utensils to the big screen projector, io has thought of every possible thing a family could need for a comfortable and lovely stay. I think she even arranged for the hummingbirds to pop in every day. I cannot recommend La Clede high enough. It's super kid friendly which made it so easy for our one-year-old to feel at home. There was a high-chair, toys and books for him and the garden is superb, filled with herbs and edible goodies and fragrant flowers. The location in atwater Village was excellent - a short walk to the main drag and a short drive to supermarkets and Silverlake etc. The decoration is eclectic, Mid Century-ish in a Spanish style home (so la and tres chic), yet everything is warm and there are hooks everywhere and a spot for everything. She even has the shower water-filtered, so you don't get dry skin from la's tough water! io herself is very warm, generous and friendly and made us feel really welcome and is super-contacable. This is the place to be.
