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.
"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 for a quiet place 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.
- 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)
- 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.
We provide all the linens, towels, beach towels, bikes and more. Shampoo, conditioner, soap in the bathroom and basic cooking essentials in the kitchen. All you really need to bring is your bathing suit and toothbrush.
Abbot Kinney has become the hottest boutique and restaurant destination on the West Side, and it's only six blocks away. The beach is only a mile away, with the famed Venice Canals halfway there.
We are three blocks from major bus lines going to Santa Monica, the airport and downtown LA.

We loved our 3-night stay at the cottage! Great accommodations - comfy beds, great shower, lots of light. Enjoyed the outdoor space too and the flowering grapefruit tree smells amazing! Fun neighborhood close to interesting shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again, so much nicer than a hotel. It's a great option when you want to save a bit too, it was nice to pick up groceries nearby and have breakfast each morning at the cottage.
This little cottage is so charming! I was in town with two co-workers. Before we headed back home, we wanted to spend a relaxing evening in Venice Beach. This place was perfect for just that!
Had a great time. I only stayed there for one night, but it was really comfortable.
For people concerned about the dog, it *definitely* is a friendly dog, so don't worry about that, at all.
The interesting things about Venice Beach all seem to be at walking distance, but I loved being able to take one of the bikes; made it so much easier to get a taste of the area during my short stay.
Great stay in a really excellent location. The cottage is all that the listing says. And the hosts are great - during my stay a plumbing problem occurred and they resolved it as quickly as anyone possibly could. It turns out that Venice is 20-25 minutes from anywhere in LA, which is nice as well -- as long as you aren't going during rush hour!
Everything we thought it would be. Super adorable place in an amazing location. The skylights were our favorite part...nothing better than fresh air when you sleep! The home was quiet and very clean. We walked and biked everywhere while there.
If you stay at the Sweetest Cottage make sure you eat at Poke-Poke and Hama sushi!
Will definitely recommend this place to friends.
This was my most pleasant stay in LA.
I come here for work all the time and Hotels are usually louder and never tucked away in cute neighborhoods.
The space was extremely clean and as expected from the pictures.
Super quiet street, walking distance to breakfast/dinner places just like I love it!
Definitely recommend staying. Unfortunately I didn't meet Thea and George because of my schedule but I wish I could have told them in person hoe much I love the place.
As advertised. This is a sweet place, well equipped with everything you need and within pretty easy walking distance to AK and the beach. Thea was a great host and even provided a pack-n-play for our baby. You also get a rent-a-dog in Moxy, who is a super sweet mutt. If you don't need to leave Venice, you could actually survive without a car here - an LA rarity - by taking a cab from LAX and walking or biking to everything you need.
An amazing place! Very private and relaxing. The vibe is Venice Beach chill. Good people. I would definitely stay again.
The place was amazing! So cute! Yummy chocolate on each bed. I'd stay there again and again!
LOVE this place! Had a wonderful stay. Clean, comfortable, & FUN, with a great energy and vibe.
