About James Ulmer

James Ulmer purchased this cottage in 2001

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.

Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Great Place! Everything was just as described. Loved being able to use the bike. Owner was very nice and quick to respond. Nice location and quiet neighborhood. I used public transportation during my stay and the bus stops were within walking distance of the cottage. Loved being able to use the washer and dryer during my stay!

Charming!

  • 5 of 5
Not getting around to this review has been bothering me for six months! Me and my two teenage daughters stayed here last summer. It was just awesome.

I was so impressed with the bottle of wine to greet us, the sweet and private little backyard, the quietness of the neighborhood, and the accessibility to everything, including the beach.

The cottage was the best part of our Santa Monica stay. I wouldn't recommend for more than 3 people, but it was perfect for us.

HOURS OF FUN IS JUST MINUTES AWAY! We’re located on a treed residential street on the fabulous West side of Los Angeles, in the area of Mar Vista where where Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey and Culver City all meet...

From our lovely 2-bedroom home it's just 5 minutes to the freeways, 6 minutes to the famous Venice Beach and Venice Canals, and 8 minutes to the Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica promenade.

Top-flight restaurants, cinemas, supermarkets, golf course, parks and the Abbott Kinney antique shops are only 4-minutes away.

And if you drive down our cross street (passing a convenient supermarket and Costco shopping center) you'll arrive at the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice in less time than it takes to stroll around the block.
