Wilshire Montana Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom; 1 bath. Maximum 2 guest

This is a charming stand alone cottage is in a garden setting with a front porch and back door to it's own patio and dedicated parking space. It has a real fireplace, hardwood floors, clawfoot tub/shower, washer/dryer, wifi, premium DirecTV and flat screen. A dedicated parking space if provided.

So close to the best retail and food but you'll feel like you're in the country, it's so quiet and peaceful.

The best location in the best area of Los Angeles. with fantastic restaurants and shops. The ocean is about 1 mile to walk, bike, drive, or take a bus. There is a dedicated parking space.

If this cottage is booked, I have others.

Great little spot in Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was perfect for my stay visiting my son in LA. It was clean, cozy, and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, grocery stores and the beach. It was about a mile to Santa Monica beach which could be a little much for some if you have beach chairs and such. I walked down daily for exercise and it was fantastic. The cottage had a small but well equipped kitchen and a private outside patio with a table and chairs as well as a chaise. It was an excellent reading spot. I loved the keyless entry! I was also pleasantly surprised at how quiet the area was despite being right near Montana Avenue. This cottage is definately top of the list for future visits. I was alone this time but the cottage would easily accomodate my husband and myself.

Very very sweet cottage. Well maintained. Lovely landscaping.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was thoughtfully provided. Very nice linens, comfortable bed, even a water filter pitcher in the refrigerator. Great location. I walked across the street every morning to coffee house. Walked down to the ocean every afternoon for a sunset view.

An absolute gem on quiet Montana

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in these cottages and is our go to place of choice. The location is superb, the parking space is a real treat, the cottages have everything we could possibly need and are maintained to a high standard both inside and out. A fresh flower from the garden on the dining table was a wonderful and thoughtful welcome.

There are many great shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, coffee shops all within easy walking distance. Uber is $5/6 to get you to the main hub of wonderful Santa Monica. Also, from this location you can get into Beverly Hills and West Hollywood in 30 minutes.

The owner's ethos is only that you have as good a time as possible and is easily contactable should there be a need.

On a selfish note, please don't book it when we want to go!!!

Best Cottage in all of Santa Monica!

  • 5 of 5

I LOVE this cottage! We stayed here for six nights, and we already talking about when we can return for another stay. It was so quiet, perfectly located, and close to everything you need (Santa Monica pier, right off of Montana shopping, beach in Malibu is a short drive away). If you really just want to stay in Santa Monica you don't even need a car when staying here. Evelyn was a gem to work with in the cottage had everything one could need! We have absolutely no hesitation or regrets staying at this great location. Like the commercial, we didn't feel like we visited California we LIVED it! Enjoy----:)
