Our spacious and cozy one bedroom apartment is located just 5 blocks to the Venice Pier. We are situated in a beautiful apartment complex with great amenities. Enjoy the home or walk (or bike!) to see everything this amazing area has to offer.

The Space

Our home is a spacious 1 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment with plenty of room to spread out and make yourself at home. Its cute and bright and close to everything!

We're located on the Marina Peninsula only 5 blocks east of the Venice Pier which makes for the perfect opportunity to grab a surfboard and catch a wave.

Don't surf? Hop on one of our beach cruisers and head along the sand up to the Santa Monica Pier. Or, ride down Venice's Abbot Kinney Blvd (voted the hippest street in America by GQ magazine!) or just take a trip around the Marina del Rey Harbor, there are wonderful self guided walks to take all around us. All of these are listed and on a map found in the apartment . . . or the Venice Canals (yes, they are beautiful!) -- all just steps away.

Located off Washington Blvd. in the Marina amazing restaurants, bars, coffee shops, health food stores, yoga studios, boutiques, thrift stores are a quick 5 - 10 minute walk down the street.

We are 3 short miles to 3rd Street Promenade and the Santa Monica Pier. We are 8 miles to UCLA, and close to major highways that take you to Hollywood, Disneyland, and Downtown LA.

The apartment offers TV, high speed wireless internet, full bath, full kitchen, and balcony over looking our beautiful garden courtyard with a water feature and a pond! We offer 2 car garage parking and bikes for easy access to the beautiful city.

The kitchen offers a refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, french press, and all the kitchen supplies you might need. We also have a washer and dryer in our unit! Dining table is great for entertaining and makes an excellent work desk too!

The bedroom offers a very comfortable queen mattress, TV, large dressers and a very spacious walk in closet for your use.

Living room is bright with lots of windows and a beautiful view of the balcony and garden area. There is a large flat screen TV and the sofa reclines into a full size bed.

The balcony is my favorite spot! The patio is lovely. Its kind of like sitting up inside the trees. It offers outdoor table and chairs. BBQ is coming soon!

Guest Access

Guests have access to all the cool amenities our apartment complex has to offer. This includes: pool, jacuzzi, fitness center, tennis courts, dry cleaning services, business center (with computers and printers), sports lounge, and community BBQ area.

Interaction with Guests

I am available by phone, or text, or email for anything you might need during your stay.

Getting around

LAX is only 10-15 minutes away and there's LA public transportation in front of the apartment. Also, during the summer, there's a free beach shuttle that travels around the Marina and to Santa Monica.

Other Things to Note

Please contact us if you have and questions and want to soak up the sun and enjoy life at the beach! We love our apartment and hope you will enjoy it too.

  • Fantastic apartment in a great location. Laura ensured there was lots of useful information on the local area available. The apartment was stylish and very comfortable.

  • Laura is extremely helpful, all her information about how to arrive and get into the apartment was really clear and detailed so the whole experience was stress-free. And then you arrive and its a lovely flat in a lovely place. Well laid out and nicely considered, it was like a home away from home. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone.

  • Clean, cozy, spacious, near the beach although we drove instead of walking to go to a nicer and quieter beach. It was about a five min drive. Bikes were there for our use. The complex itself is charming and parking was a breeze. Easy ten min drive to Venice. Ten min drive to LAX. We were only two but it seems like the futon in the living room can sleep one maybe 2 more people. Although that futon does not look comfortable. Can easily use an inflatable bed instead.

  • A great place stay. A clean, quiet apartment close to the beach, a few restaurants and a good base from which to explore LA.

  • Laura a été une hôte très accueillante et très disponible. Elle nous également permis de faire un check-out tardif étant donné que notre vol de retour était dans la soirée.
    L'appartement est chaleureux, bien situé et correspond tout à fait à l'annonce : résidence calme et sécurisée, appartement tout équipé, piscine extérieure, parking...
    Je recommande vivement Laura et son cottage.

  • We really enjoyed staying at Laura's place, it was very clean and well stocked with the little daily necessities. It had everything we needed, She was very easy to communicate with and I'd definitely recommend her apartment! Thanks Laura!

  • Loved our stay at the Cozy Cottage! It's close to the beach, restaurants, and shops... and right across the street from a little beach with bbqs and volleyball nets right on the marina. From the funky-chic decor to the Kona coffee, the apt. was perfect. I sat on the balcony drinking coffee, reading books, and enjoying the sunrise almost every morning. And, Laura was a fabulous host, allowing us to add an extra night at the last minute. Don't miss the Killer Cafe for breakfast. It's an easy walk around the marina, with a great view of the marina and perfectly cooked hashbrowns!

  • La casa era preciosa, estaba totalmente limpia y era muy cómoda. Estuvimos 4 personas y había mucho espacio. Totalmente recomendable.esta a las afueras de los ángeles, pero para recorrer la zona está genial y se evitan atascos.
    La casa tenía todo tipo de detalles, gel, champú, secador, te así como sábanas y toallas. Insisto en la limpieza de la casa.
