|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Located in the heart of Pacific Palisades, this charming cottage is a little gem in one of the best neighborhoods in Los Angeles. A few steps from the center of town (grocery stores, post office, banks, coffee shops, restaurants, juice store, frozen yogurt, local farmer's market on Sundays)... you will also be a short bike ride away from the beach & minutes away from some of the best hikes in LA (Will Roger's State Park).
Cedric is French, Lucy is American & they live together in Pacific Palisades with their twin boys.
When we came to see it for the first time, standing outside the front door outlined with an enormous, colorful bougainvillea I literally said to my husband, 'I'm sold!' Once we stepped in, it just got better & better.
The tucked away 'bungalow' feel to it. The front door opens up to a private patio with comfortable furniture & tons of sunlight. Inside, the living room has skylights & opens up to a dining area as well as kitchen with counter & stools (perfect for breakfast). We instantly fell in love with this cottage's charm & it's uncluttered open, airy feel. Washer/dryer & dishwasher included. This is definitely a happy place. A unique, picturesque spot with all one's needs walking distance away, rare in a city known for being so reliant on one's car.
The cottage was lovely, very clean and exactly as described. The beds were comfy, linens of good quality. We were a little concerned about the on street parking and whether we would find anywhere easily, but it was not an issue and we were able to park practically outside the house. We loved that we could walk to the shops and the local swimming pool easily, and the location was ideal for our LA plans which involved the Will Rogers, Santa Monica and Venice Beaches as well as Hollywood and Universal Studios. If I was ever lucky enough to live in LA, this is where I'd choose!
The Cottage is ideally located near the Palisades Village and is the perfect Family vacation home. We enjoyed our stay and Cedric & Lucy were very helpful owners.
