The space

Private guest cottage available—studio, sleeps 2. Features private entrance off relaxing, landscaped garden, natural light, wood floors. Peaceful and private retreat. Great location near shops.

Great West LA location. Short drive to UCLA, Santa Monica Beach and Promenade, Malibu, Beverly Hills. Residential neighborhood, safe, clean and friendly. 15 minute walk to Landmark Cinemas and wine lounge, Coffee Bean or Starbucks Coffee, Trader Joes Market. Whole Foods Market short drive. Easy street parking in front of house with no restrictions, very close to 405 and 10 freeway access. Culver City and Santa Monica bus lines on corner.

Guest access

Amenities include: Wi-fi, Ipod dock. No cable but have Roku and secure Wi-fi for your netflix or iTunes. Kitchenette, tiled shower in bathroom. Brand new Queen sized bed with new memory foam mattress. Linens included.
Not TOTALLY wheelchair accessible (slightly raised entrance), but relatively easy access for those with mobility challenges.

Interaction with guests

Host lives in separate cottage on same grounds (duplex style). Available to guests for any needs but very minimal contact as work full time off site. There is one adult neutered cat on the grounds but not in this unit.

The neighborhood

This is a pleasant, easy, residential neighborhood for walking, Trader Joes and Landmark Cinemas are each walking distance. Whole Foods is a short drive away. A public park and public library nearby are handy for kids.

Getting around

Public transportation in Los Angeles is not ideal, but there are bus stops right on the corner of Westwood and Coventry to go to most places in West LA, Westwood, or Santa Monica. The Expo line has opened! It runs to Downtown LA or out to the beach.

Other things to note

People really enjoy relaxing in the garden. It makes a studio much bigger. Outdoors there is a sofa, club chairs, lights in the trees. It is quite pleasant. Suitable for small, intimate garden weddings with advanced inquiry.

Cottage is cozy and warms quickly with heater, but bring slippers for hard wood floors, which are often cool!

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets

-NO indoor smoking, please.
-Two adult maximum occupancy (infants and toddlers welcome, amenities available). Awesome garden for family play dates.
-Feel free to use the address for one off deliveries (such as Amazon, etc.) but please do not use my address to open permanent accounts or for long term mail! Happy to help you secure a Post Office Box at Mail and More.

One adult neutered cat lives on the property grounds but not inside the cottage. Please, prefer no other pets.

Washer & Dryer on the property (free). No LIQUID soap, please! Laundry powder aplenty in the laundry room, under the sink. Or use any powder soap. (Full disclosure--the laundry room is the one space that doesn't live up to the photo! I have some storage in there such as bikes and art supplies, and it is a working laundry room with drying racks in use, etc.! Comes with the territory, I suppose. Thanks for your understanding.)

We have lived around the United States (New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Washington, D.C.) and traveled around the world! Some of our great trips have been to homes we have rented or exchanged. We hope you will feel as welcome in the garden and in the cottage as you would any where in the world! The cottage is detached with its own entrance so you have complete privacy in your sanctuary, but we are happy to make recommendations of places to eat or visit. We enjoy theatre and live jazz, although we're often too busy to enjoy everything Los Angeles has to offer.

We hope you'll check out our little casita!
