I am a 'Hooiser' born in Indiana and my wife Jacqui a Filipina raised in Manila, met each other in Los Angeles and married in 2010. We enjoy the Asian motif and warm welcoming, and calm surroundings. We renovated our middle house with this in mind. We designed the layout and functionality with the idea that one day, we will move into this cottage. And providing a space that we can call home has proven to be a winning strategy. We have created a space so comfortable that guests feel at home. The Koi House is your home away from home.

Jacqui Ganz purchased this house in 2008

3 unique detached homes on one lot all facing the street. This oasis in the city is surrounded by lush trees. The sound of falling water flowing over rocks into the koi pond instilled a peaceful feeling. Knowing that our friends and family would also enjoy our home we invite you to visit our serene haven providing the perfect place to hang out and relax!

A PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent 5 days in LA and had the great pleasure of staying at the Zen cottage. The owners Jacqui and Howard were more than accommodating, available at all times and always willing to help. The home was impeccable and included everything you would need for your stay and more, truly a home a way from home. The mattress on the sofa couch was amazing, offering the exact same comfort of a bed mattress...thank you for that, my teenagers appreciated it a lot. The location was awesome, in a safe neighborhood, near restaurants, convenient stores and major highways. We were truly able to relax and disconnect from our daily routines...we would most certainly go back given the first opportunity and we would most definitely stay here again in a heart beat! Thank you Jacqui and Howard!

PERFECT OASIS

  • 5 of 5
Great stay at this property in Santa Monica with our family of 4. The cottage is beautifully decorated & includes many high end touches (updated well supplied kitchen, big washer & dryer, large flat screen tv's, beautiful fixtures in bathrooms & kitchen, etc..). Parking was easy. We had a big suburban & had no problems parking. We had the pleasure of meeting Howard & Jacqui upon arrival and a couple of other times during our stay. They are warm & welcoming & there if you need them. The cottage is very private and it is nice to have your own oasis at the end of a long day. The cottage is centrally located so we were able to take advantage of all Santa Monica has to offer. We went to Seasons 52 on Ocean Avenue during our stay. The meal was superb and the view is stunning. Highly recommend. Truly enjoyed our stay at the Zen Cottage! Will stay there again on our next trip.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our stay at The Zen cottage in Santa Monica. Howard and Jacqui are warm and gracious hosts. The cottage was perfect for our stay - 5 days -4 nights. A quick drive to the ocean or 3rd Street Promenade, allow for a locals view of Santa Monica. Quiet, well appointed neighborhood. Jacqui and Howard have given much thought to every aspect of one's stay. From a welcoming fruit basket to Direct TV - Zen cottage presents a home away from home. Thank you Howard and Jacqui - we will see you soon.

EXCELLENT STAY IN SANTA MONICA

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 (two teenagers) stayed at the Zen Cottage over spring break. The cottage is well designed with high quality construction and furnishings. The mattress in the master bedroom was super comfortable. Parking was never a problem, the neighborhood was fairly quiet, we never felt unsafe. It was quick and easy to access the interstate, Santa Monica Blvd, and Wilshire Blvd from the cottage. The owners live next door and were very responsive when we needed another blanket, requested a cooler, had the porch light burn out, etc. We would stay again.

FAMILY REUNION AT THE ZEN COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We were in the area for a week, family from all over the world reunited for my nephew's wedding. Howard and Jacqui were welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived without being intrusive, answering all our questions promptly. The house is beautiful, well maintained and everything in it is high quality: from all the appliances, to mattresses, linens, towels, etc. Parking just in front of the house made it really easy.
I already recommended the place to friends that might travel to LA and we are planning to return in the years to come.
Thank you Howard and Jacqui!

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, baby and I met our friends, a family of 3 also, at the Zen Cottage for a 4 day vacation. Upon arrival we found the house very clean, nicely organized and even a thank you card and fruit / chocolate basket waiting for us. The beds were cozy, the kitchen spacious and stocked with the things we needed, a grill that we cooked dinner on a few times and the location was convenient for us as we spent most of our time in Santa Monica, Venice and driving up the 405. Jacqui and her partner, Howard, introduced themselves and checked on us to see if everything was well a couple of times – they live next door which was very convenient. They were both super friendly and were looking our for us and our car rental during the Monday morning no parking times – we really appreciated that. It is clear that the owners take a lot of pride in their property. We will definitely rent the Zen Cottage again. Thanks Jacqui and Howard!
