About the property

Cottage 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

This elegantly-appointed cottage is located in the prestigious Ocean Park neighborhood of Santa Monica, steps away from Venice Beach and minutes from the Santa Monica Pier. Walk only 2 minutes down to Santa Monica's Main Street or 5 minutes to the beach.

The bright and airy retreat features one bedroom plus a cozy guestroom. The kitchen is fully-equipped with everything you'll need for a delicious home-cooked meal, including an antique Wedgewood stove for the demanding cook. Come home to the rich aroma of freshly brewed coffee from your own Espresso machine. Soak up the afternoon sunlight on the private patio area or indulge yourself with a warm spa.

All furnishings are brand new in a minimalistic and modern style. They have been carefully selected with a contemporary designer touch to contrast the original vintage details.

Wonderful choice

  • 5 of 5

we had a great time and we really appreciated Karina's help during our accommodation. The cottage was as described and even more , and we had a great time spending our LA vacation in Santa Monica.

Greatly recommended.

Newly remodeled and great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my two boys at this cute bungalow for a month in the summer. The cottage is part of a group of remodeled bungalows built around a nicely landscaped common area. The location is a few blocks from Main Street and closer to the Venice side of Santa Monica but is still more residential than Venice. There is a fantastic Farmer's Market on the weekend, stores and restaurants, a new mall (Santa Monica Place) within walking distance and the bike path along the beach. On our bikes we went to the Santa Monica Pier with a yummy ice cream/soda fountain and the carousel and the new Marion Davies/city of Santa Monica public swimming pool and tennis courts (on the beach!). There is a nice park next door. My older son took a week of surf lesson three blocks away from the house. The Whole Foods Market was the nearest grocery store and it was the largest and nicest one I have ever been to. Hwy 1 and the Hwy 10 are minutes away. Parking was fairly easy with the house parking pass, just be careful to move the car on street sweeping days. The cottage itself is newly remodeled and well stocked with supplies. Everything was new and comfortable-the beds and lines. There are two beach cruiser bikes available at request. Karina, the property manager is available and very helpful. I would highly recommend this property! Thanks Karina!

3 Blocks from Santa Monica and Venice Beach

Only one block from Santa Monica's Main Street, 3 blocks from Santa Monica and Venice beach, this place is as exciting to come home to, as it is to venture out from.

Head 5 minutes north to Santa Monica’s Shopper's paradise, 3rd Street Promenade, the only pedestrian zone in L.A's Westside and home of many brands including Abercrombie & Fitch, The Gap, Urban Outfitters and more. After shopping sit down and enjoy one of many cafes and listen to live music performed at the Promenade.

Other great areas to discover: Abbott Kinney in Venice Beach with its stylish architecture, cool boutiques, art galleries and the latest 'in' restaurants. It's only a short five-minute drive from the cottage. One of our personal favorite restaurants in Abbot Kinney: The Tasting Kitchen.

Other Activities: Boating, Health/Beauty Spa
