Newly-remodeled cottage keeps you in the heart of it all, while affording you total privacy and quiet. We designed the cottage to be a warm and bright retreat from the hustle of everyday life. It really feels remote and peaceful.

Newly-remodeled cottage keeps you in the heart of it all, while affording you total privacy and quiet. We designed the cottage to be a warm and bright retreat from the hustle of everyday life. It really feels remote and peaceful.

The Space

"Thea & George were awesome hosts and their place is absolutely amazing. It's a perfectly appointed private cottage tucked away on a quiet street on the back of their property. We wanted a place close to the beach but far enough away so as to not be in the middle of the action all the time - this place was the perfect medium."

"Thea and George's cottage, set off a quiet road, is bright, clean, and cheerful. It's newly renovated, with great attention to detail, making for a relaxing stay. The location is a short walk to the main drag of Abbot Kinney, where you'll find lots of shops, cafes, restaurants, and the buzz of Venice. There are bikes available, too, and Thea's family have a super sweet dog. Overall, it's a beautiful flat and is recommended for anyone who wants a relaxing time in a great neighborhood with friendly, attentive hosts."

This is a super-sweet cottage in the back of our property, perfect for a professional looking (email hidden) to come home to after a hard day's work, for a couple wanting some peace and quiet, or for a family with one or two small children. We've just renovated it, and furnished it with lots of love and care. IT IS BEAUTIFUL!

We're one mile from Venice Beach, half a mile to the Venice Canals, and six blocks from the famous Abbot Kinney shopping street, with LA's trendiest boutiques and restaurants.

The cottage is roomy and very bright, with five skylights and wood floors. It has a full kitchen, with fridge, toaster and 3-burner antique gas stove. The bedroom area can be closed off from the rest of the space by a semi-circular folding door, and it is furnished with a queen bed. The living area is spacious and bright and right now it has a full-size bed that can be used as couch/daybed or sleeping for one or two.
The cottage has its own outdoor table and chairs with an umbrella, idyllically situated under a big bougainvillea tree.

We provide:
- linens, towels and beach towels
- a full kitchen with pots and pans, tableware and some basic cooking staples (ketchup, oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, sugar, coffee, tea, etc.)
- shampoo, conditioner, soap
- two adult bikes (use at no charge, you fix them if they break)
- wifi
- there is ample free parking on the street, you just have to yield the street cleaning signs to avoid getting a ticket on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, 8-10am.

Please read our other reviews to see what kind of hosts we are and to get an idea of the service we provide.

  • The cottage was perfect for our stay in Venice. It's cute , functional & immaculately clean. Our favorite part was the location. Close to Abbot Kinney shopping & restaurants, but tucked away on a quiet street in a charming neighborhood. We really enjoyed exploring and having a comfortable home base to come back to in the evening. Thank you for a great trip!

  • This was one of the loveliest places we have ever stayed. Decorated beautifully, it had everything you needed and was just very pleasant to spend time in. The bed and bedding is very comfortable, the kitchen is stocked with basic tools, and it is a quiet surrounding area. We would love to stay again!

  • This little cottage is like a work of art - and clean and spacious too. I was only there for one night, on my way to a conference, but thoroughly enjoyed it. It felt like a home away from home (but much more stylish than my real home). Don't forget to add your "graffiti" to the wall that has already been decorated by many past guests!

    Response from George And Thea:

    Melissa, thank you for your great review - I'm so glad you had a good time. As for the AC question, most houses on the West Side don't have air conditioning, because it rarely gets hot enough so close to the breezy ocean. I understand your confusion, and would be happy to show you how to open/close the skylights next time you visit us :)

  • We found everything perfectly prepared in the "sweetest Cottage". Helpful information was provided as well. The pictures show reality an we felt comfortable and safe. Although we did not meet our hosts in person, everything was just fine and very well organised.
