Great spot -

My wife and I visited LA for a 4-day mini vacation and this place was perfect. The price is right and the location is great - walking distance (within 1 mile) from Whole Foods, lots of great dining options, and the beach.
The cottage/studio is clean and well designed. It is small, but perfect for a vacationing couple. The kitchen area is well thought out to make use of the limited space, although a bit under equipped. A few more pots/pans and some decent knives (Forschner Victorinox knives are a great quality/value) would be a great improvement. The wireless internet is nice, but the signal seemed to come and go.
Alison (the owner) was super friendly and let us know that she was only a phone call away for any questions/issues. We didn't have cause to call, but it's good to have such an accommodating rental owner. She also made some great recommendations for dining and sight seeing.
#1) Two cruiser bikes - perfect for getting around the neighborhood and people watching. The best part of our trip was riding the bikes up and down the beach and soaking in the quintessential SoCal ambiance.
#2) Very pleasant, private outdoor patio with table and BBQ grill - we didn't use the grill, but nice to know it's there. Great place for a peaceful morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine.
#3) Music options! A record player with a neat selection of records was very cool. Also there is an iPod/iPhone dock which also doubles as an alarm clock to hook up your own music too.
#4) King size bed. Rare to find a rental with a bed this large.
I would absolutely stay here again if I visit LA again, and I would highly recommend this place.
