This was my first visit to LA and Hollywood - the legendary place where the magic of movies is made and dreams are born, and the accommodation at Lucile House helped to reinforce all the good things I've heard and read about this infamous place.
Bryan and Paul's home in Silver Lake Hills, Hollywood, is one of the best equipped and most comfortable places I've ever stayed at in my travels to the U.S. Canada, or abroad.
The hosts are friendly and hospitable and provide their guests with every comfort you could possibly ask for -from a well-equipped kitchen for ambitious cooks and sommeliers, to a variety of comfortable areas on the property to relax on including an upper deck, lower garden, as well as a tastefully decorated living room and front terrace. They have compiled a personalized guide for visitors to Lucile House to assist visitors while staying in this part of the city. There are also complete instructions on how to to navigate one's way around the house.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are equally as comfortable and tastefully furnished with fresh white linens and plush white towels. Every room has fresh flowers from the garden which adds another special touch.
These hosts have created a sophisticated beach house atmosphere in an interesting and diverse urban neighbourhood. One can relax and unwind in this home away from home while soaking up the nice views of the city from the upper decks, and still be only minutes from good restaurants and entertainment just down the hill.
I can't recommend this home highly enough. I willfully love to return again, and can only wholeheartedly recommend "Lucile House" to anyone visiting LA, who wants to feel as if they're at a real holiday home while in LA.
Thank you gals for your wonderful review. Enjoyed having you here at the house. You're all welcome back for another stay when in LA.

“Best apartment ever”
Left on 03/24/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 24, 2014Stayed Mar 2014
We stayed in Lucile ave 2 weeks and we loved it. Paul and Bryan are the kindest hosts, the apartment is perfectly equiped, and it´s pretty quiet, although you can reach all the hotspots in minutes by car.
The terrace is just lovely and you have an amazing view from there. On nice days, you can see the Hollywood sign.
The infrastructure is perfect as well: Everything you need like supermarktes, petrol stations etc is just a few mins away on Hyperion ave.
I will definitely come back, there´s simply absolutely nothing negative I could say about this apartment. We really felt so at home there!
Silke and Doris,
It was such a pleasure meeting you both. What wonderful and lovely guests you were. Our doors are always open to you next time you are in Los Angeles. Thank you for your great review.

“Paul & Bryan's Silver Lake House”
Left on 01/13/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | Rebecca & DannyReviewed Jan 13, 2014Stayed Jan 2014
We stayed at Paul & Bryan's house after new years, once arrived we noticed a wine bottle and a personal card wishing us a happy new year, to me & my husband. The personal touch that made us feel very welcome. Clean, cozy, luxurious but also perfect for our little 1-year old to crawl everywhere! The most amazing view in the morning and during sunset while chilling on the patio/outdoor area. We really enjoyed our stay here, very sophisticated as the attention to details in this house is amazing! Great modern books to read, beautiful paintings on the wall and a beautiful garden where we also have access to. Located in a very nice quiet area.
We're definitely looking forward staying there again when back in L.A.
Danny,Rebecca and little Che,
Thanks so much for the great review on our property. It was a pleasure meeting you and having you in our home. You were such fantastic guests!
We hope you come back and visit us next time you're in LA. We love the pictures!
All the best to you!
