Response Rate: 100%

We have a modern and warm house in Silver Lake, facing Silver Lake Reservoir (2400sqft, corner lot). It has great views of the reservoir, particularly gorgeous in the morning and evening! The home has been recently updated with all modern/designer finishes. Neutral colored walls with warm wood furniture, floors, and cabinetry. Tons of natural light (though may be hard to tell in the pictures because I'm a terrible photographer). There are two outdoor decks facing the water, one that is large (450sf approx) and one that is medium sized (120sf approx). Large fully-functional chefs kitchen. A huge atrium skylight gives amazing views of the reservoir (with mechanical shade if you need to limit light). Beautifully landscaped front and backyards. Home gym available for filming as well (200sf). The backyard has a large table (accommodates 14+) and two other seating areas where most crews easily set up their HQ, viewing stations, craft services, etc. Both front decks also have ample seating and space to set up tables, shade tents, scaffolding, or serve other needs. The price listed is for use of the main floor (living room, dining room, kitchen, guest room, full bath, and gym, as well as the decks and outdoor spaces.

Property Rules

We love helping folks with their events, creative projects, and film shoots! We're looking for respectful crews who will treat the house and homeowners with respect while filming.
Basic House Rules:
- One room of the house should be left for the homeowner during filming.
- You can move furniture, but please ask host for approval.
- Please request if any art needs to be moved. Art can only be moved by host.
- Layout board must be used to cover wood & carpeted floors on major paths of travel and where equipment will be placed. If tape is used on the floors, it MUST be wood-safe tape.
- Animals are allowed pending host approval. -
No drinks on any wood furniture. Food and drink are only allowed in the kitchen or outdoors, unless cleared by host.
- No smoking (or vaping) inside the home or on the property.
- Garage, closets, refrigerator, and pantries are off limits unless previously approved by the host.
- Trash must be removed from the premises at the end of the booking. If you are booking for Wednesday, you can talk to the owner about using the on-site trash and recycling.
- Doors must be kept closed as much as possible during booking (not necessarily locked, just closed as much as possible).
- House is kept very clean and orderly and needs to be returned to that condition.
- Must have insurance.
- Damage deposit may be required.
- Overtime will be billed at 1.5x. Bookings include any tech visits, load-in, setup, cleanup, and load-out.
SECURITY DEPOSIT - A security deposit MAY be required. It will be returned to you after your event, provided that the space is returned in the way it was received.
STAGING - Furniture may be moved for shoot with host approval -- but must be returned to original setup before departure (including outdoor furniture). Please handle items with care. It's a good idea to take photos before moving furniture as a reminder of how to re-stage the space.
CLEANING & SETUP - Please leave the house clean, take out trash, return everything to original setup. Trash cannot be left on the premises or on the sidewalk/curb.
DAMAGE - Accidents may happen, but we require that guests inform us if anything is damaged during its use. A walk-through is required after all bookings.
DEPARTURE - The shoot is over when the tail lights of the guest's vehicles can be seen leaving. Please give yourselves enough time to load out. Please do not load everything into the street to beat the clock only to continue loading your parked vehicles in the street. This is a quiet residential neighborhood and our neighbors have been really considerate to allow filming without complaining, especially in the evenings and mornings. We respectfully cannot have film crews loitering in the street.
PERMITS - It is guest's responsibility to obtain a shooting permit or request the street be cleared for parking.
