average rating of 3.4 based on 5 reviews

Sun cottage is comfortable, well-equipped and clean.

  • 4 of 5

This property is situated steps from the hurly-burly of Venice beach but is private and pin drop quiet.

Very nice.

I would never rent this property again.

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to broken refrigerator and lots and lots of ants, inside and out. Did not feel that owner and manager compensated fairly for the inconvenience and frustration.

Ideal location in Venice Beach!

  • 4 of 5

The Sun Cottage was perfect for our family of 4, and ideally located - half block from the Boardwalk near Muscle Beach, easy walk to Abbot Kinney, Venice canals, Venice Pier/Washington Blvd restaurants, etc.. The cottage itself is really cute, small but charming. Jess, the property manager, was really responsive with any questions or concerns we may have had. We really had a great time!

Decent Value

  • 3 of 5

The property is well located near the beach, literally minutes away! It is also close to several fun restaurants. The owner was really easy to work with and offered a fair price. We did experience a less than perfectly clean environment that included some plumbing issues. The outside seating area is great and we wish we could have enjoyed it but the cushions were always wet and it was a bit dark at night.

Charming beach cottage in fabulous location for enjoying all the character of Venice Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in August 2010 was all that we expected and more.

The pictures are true to life - We enjoyed sitting out on the decks, loved the luxury of the bedrooms and appreciated the well equipped kitchen and the BBQ and everything was clean and tidy. The cleaner also came midway through our stay and did a great job.

The kids appreciated the TV/DVD and also wireless internet access - got to keep up-to-date on Facebook...

With the beach just half a block away, this was where we spent much of our time. There were plenty of towels for the beach, as well as all the beach equipment that the kids could want from boogie boards to buckets and spades. The outside shower was great when we got back - making sure that the sand stayed outside!

The location was also excellent for getting out to see the major LA attractions, being close to Venice and Washington Blvds and therefore given easy access to the freeway network (we got to Dineyland/Universal Studios/Hollywood Bowl/Manns' Chinese Theatre/The Grove/UCLA/The Getty Museum/Santa Monica Pier...). None of the major theme parks was more than an hour's drive.

Also well located within Venice on a walk street, and just a short stroll from the canals and Muscle Beach. Washington was a short walk and had lots of great places to go and eat. Abbot Kinney was a little further, but also walkable.

I would thoroughly recommend this property, and hope that we can come back soon - Sun Cottage was a great home away from home
