The Space

We have a renovated cozy, quiet and uncluttered cottage on our property that is perfect for a visit to the Westside of Los Angeles. The one bedroom cottage has a small office with comfy chair, small kitchen, bedroom and bathroom with amenities. There is a little bistro table outside with two chairs. And a pull down table in the main room. The cottage is approximately 550 square feet.

The property is extremely private as it is surrounded by a grove of giant bamboo trees. Please note that this cottage is on our property. You must come through the front gate of our main house and walk down a path to get to the private cottage.

The area is known locally as Venice del Rey, as it skirts the edges of L. A.’s two famously relaxed beach communities. Marina del Rey and its upscale shopping and harbor is within easy walking distance. And Venice, having been transformed from funky to chic in recent years, is a three-minute drive and 10 minute bike ride. We are moments from a bike path that can take you to the beach or east to the happening area that is Culver City. Though we are near urban and beach locales as well as LAX, our block is exceedingly peaceful and quiet. We are near many fabulous restaurants and other Los Angeles attractions. On clear nights, we can even see the Milky Way from our front porch. Culver City, Manhattan Beach, Santa Monica, Mar Vista and Westwood are all easily accessible from here.

We don't live in this cottage so there are no knick knacks and clutter. It's just a clean, zen space perfect for a peaceful and fun visit to Los Angeles. Perfect for a couple or an individual who has to visit Los Angeles for business.

Guest Access

Must enter through front gate of main house (make sure you close the front gate to keep our dog safe) and then down path to second open gate. Key will be waiting for you. Cottage is completely separate from main house but you must walk past our home to get to it.

Interaction with Guests

Minimal interaction. We provide information on house and area. If guests need us, we are happy to be there for them.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is very quiet and away from the hustle of urban L.A. We are near the beach, shopping and really great restaurants and cafe. The new Marina mall is walking distance as are some of the trendier restaurants on the Westside. Otherwise, everything is a bike ride or quick drive away.

Getting Around

We are very near the airport - 12 minutes with no traffic. 15-20 with traffic. Most people who visit LA have a car but our neighborhood is very bikeable. You can walk to some restaurants and shopping and drive everywhere else.

Other Things to Note

We need 48 hours or more in advance to book
The only bed is a Queen size so if there are two people - they must share a bed. There is no room for another bed or a third person. Please do not request a stay if you are a group of 3, unfortunately we can't accommodate children.
We are very particular about who stays in our cottage, since it is on our own property. We would like guests who are verified, have a photos of themselves (not their pet) on their profile and preferably who have used the Airbnb service before (or understand what airbnb is). Please expect to have an email exchange with us before booking. Our ideal guest is a quiet single person coming for work or a quiet couple here to enjoy the great city that is Los Angeles.
