We loved our 17-day stay at this cottage. Quaint yet sophisticated, comfortable for two, gas fireplace to warm cool evenings, bright and light, lots of thoughtful touches. Location superb for walking and shopping and as a base for exploring LA and surrounding areas. Our favourite restaurant is Santa Monica Seafood on Wilshire, easy walking distance. Short cab ride to and from LAX airport. We will return, perhaps with a group of friends to rent several of the cottages at the same time. Aero cinema just around the corner is the home of the American Cinematheque, and we were able to see all of the foreign film nominees for the Golden Globe Awards, with their directors present to introduce the films. Weather was superb. The cottage, and this vacation away from the Canadian cold exceeded all expectations. Bravo!
