Why James Ulmer chose Santa Monica
A TERRIFIC AREA where the traffic and parking is not nearly as congested and stressful as at the beach traffic yet is only minutes away from the ocean. We're also right amongst the cafes, cinemas, boutiques and shopping of the wonderful West side. A great location in what is already a world-class 'destination location.' Lovely backyard and patio deck, too!
What makes this cottage unique
Complementary use of 3 bikes to ride to the beach or explore the neighborhood -- or simply take the beach bus on the corner. Peaceful and quiet backyard terra-cotta patio (with charcoal BBQ) framed by bougainvillea and fountains looking out onto our lovely backyard garden and fruit trees. Complementary high-speed (6 megabyte) internet & Wi-Fi & cable HDTV. During your home orientation when you arrive, James can also serve as your 'virtual concierge' to help you plan your stay in LA.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear James, we just arrived at home a few days ago and really enjoyed our holiday trip.
We had a truly pleasant stay at the Beethoven Bungalow and loved coming "home"
into your cozy house after spending exciting days in Los Angeles. Thanks a
lot - also for always having good answers to our questions.
Whenever you are in Germany - you are welcome to Hannover!
