|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Come and relax in this cozy, well-decorated, and recently renovated guest cottage. This lovely home is situated in a convenient, centrally located area that is a perfect home-base for folks looking to explore LA, see the sites and have a welcoming, comfortable, quiet place to come back to.
The 400 sq. ft. space sits nestled in a relaxed plant-rich garden beside a sparkling, non-chlorinated and chemical-free pool. The open floor plan is light and bright with many windows, old Victorian stained glass and a glass paneled french door. Guests will enjoy preparing meals in the well-stocked kitchen with a large breakfast bar. There is a full-size tiled bathroom with tub and rain showerhead -- complete with 2 cozy bath robes for lounging! There's also a comfortable sitting area for 2, and a large antique desk to work on. High-speed internet and a mounted flat screen TV with cable and Netflix are also provided. There is a washer and dryer available for use in the owner's unit.
The backyard is sweet and welcoming. Lounge chairs by the pool provide a great place to work on that tan and enjoy the beautiful California sunshine! The pool is not heated, but whether you jump off the diving board or just dip a foot, it is very refreshing. The serene patio area is cozy, surrounded by greenery, a trickling fountain and a seriously comfortable daybed with soft bedding and lots of pillows. It's a perfect place to read a book, take a nap or just relax. You will also find a large BBQ grill, picnic table with benches, a portable fire pit and additional seating areas in the garden.
The area is safe and there is always plenty of parking in front of the house. We have several parks close by. Tennis, paddle tennis and basketball courts are freely available in Vets Park, only a few blocks away -- enjoy a game of tennis with complementary rackets for your use. Three different golf courses lie within 4 miles from the cottage. A set of golf clubs is available for use while you're here, just ask! Several restaurants, convenience stores and a gas station are within a couple blocks of the house. Public transportation is also located within just 2 blocks of the house for easy access to all the best sights.
A longer stroll will take you to Sony/MGM Studios, Culver City, Culver Studios, and other exciting nearby attractions. Follow in the steps of King Kong and Rhett Butler, and stay in this lovely cottage for your next visit to California!

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cottage in 1943
Monika was very friendly, and the cottage was picture perfect. The Weather, which monika had no control over was cold...so even though the pool was picture perfect...it was too cold for us to enjoy. The first night was a bit chilly...even inside, but by the second night the heater had remembered how to work and the cottage was comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat...I just pray the weather would cooperate this time!
This unit is lovely and quaint. Quiet neighborhood. Easy access to everything especially LAX. Monika was available and we were grateful for her flexibility in checking us in early the day if our arrival.
Weather wise it was a cool few days with temperatures dipping into the 40's at night. There is no heat in the unit so it was 60 when the sun went down.
Under the covers it was warm
And toasty but chilly for just relaxing.
The other thing that brought this to a 3 star rather than 4 star was the extra fees. We paid almost as much in fees as we did for the nightly cost.
Owner Monika was great and accommodating, allowed access to washer / dryer and even offered to help with laundry while we were out. Nice, clean private location that suited our specific need for a good place to sleep and have breakfast.
I had a great two night stay here. Monica was helpful and friendly, even brought fresh pastries for breakfast!
Calm, quiet, slept very well.
No too far from the beach and not too far from downtown Culver City. A nice in between location. Monika is a great hostess. She made us feel right at home with out being obtrusive. We had a great time.
The hostess was very nice and accommodating. The room wasn't exactly what we were expecting, but the management group quickly resolved our issues. It's a nice, safe spot in the LA area. It's close enough to everything but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing.
