Absolutely perfect. Clean, inviting, it felt like home. Wonderful location, just walk up Sanborn and you are at Sunset Blvd...cafes, restaurants. Its also very close to a subway station (15 min walk).

Stayed in this house 2 times during my trip, once in the room and once in the suite. Both rooms are great, the location is really good and the tenants are very nice and friendly and coped with our late check in and delay.

The location was great. It has off street parking, which is a must in LA. It was just down the street from lots of restaurants and coffee shops. There was a shared kitchen so IF we wanted we could have saved our left overs or fixed something ourselves. The rooms were clean and the host was friendly and more than helpful.

Great stay!

This was a beautiful spot. My parents loved it, and it was fresh, clean, and super convenient location.

Lovely, Peaceful Getaway

As returning guests, we love the Sanborn Guest House. We were warmly welcomed, even when we arrived around 1:00 a.m. The kitchen is wonderful for a late breakfast or snack, and the rooms are comfortable and relaxing. L.A. Is even better for the Sanborn

Great place to stay in Silver Lake

Very simple but nice place to stay in the Silver Lake neighborhood of LA. You can walk to many restaurants, coffee shops, and the red line metro. The room and bathroom were very clean. No daily maid service. They provide simple shampoo and soap but you may wish to bring your own if you are picky :)

Wonderful Stay in Silver Lake Neighborhood

The Sanborn Guest House was perfect for my recent stay in Los Angeles. It was comfortable, clean, and very homey. I rented the guest suite which included a sitting area in addition to a bedroom and bathroom. It usually takes a couple of nights for me to acclimate to a new bed, but I had some of the best sleep in ages there. While there's no onsite dining, there is a kitchen available for guests to use. There's lots to do nearby. I highly recommend it.

Super sweet, affordable stay!

Perfect location, quiet, and a great deal. No food service on site, but full kitchen is available to guests.

Silver Lake Adventure

East Coasters came to LA wedding at Big Daddy's Antiques and needed some hip Rooms to enjoy the west coast vibe. We found it at the Sanborn House. We rented the suite, the queen size bed room, and the kitchen which was perfect for our family. Gary directed us to the coffee shop, diner, and French restaurant - all within walking distance. Great time in a great place.

Huntington Library Conference

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Los Angles area. It was perfectly situated for my conference at the Huntington Library. The choice of local food venues is very good. I would suggest booking early for this one!
