Great location. Spacious unit. Convenient for long term stay: the grocery is walking distance, parking is in front of home, garden area is secure and enclosed, which makes it especially great if you are staying with young children.
This was a "coming home" of sorts for us, having lived and worked in that neighborhood. We felt "at home" from day 1, the Cottage was warm and charming.
From the minute you walk in the gate of this home you enter a beautiful and enchanting English garden, which becomes a lovely place for dining at night with lovely twinkling lights. The beautiful cottage was full of character and very spacious, but with modern amenities included. We have stayed over the last ten years in many locations in Los Angeles, and this has been our favorite by far! The location is excellent and safe, and is centrally located to most of the enclaves and neighborhoods of Los Angeles. We stayed for multiple weeks, and it was great getting to know this wonderful host family. We highly recommend this property.
What a treat to host Aileen and her family! They were all so friendly and gracious. It was so interesting to hear the stories they shared. We sure enjoyed getting to know them in the short few weeks they stayed in Westwood Cottage. Our door is open to their family anytime!
Great cottage in a great location. The place is comfortable and clean. The hosts, who live in an attached house, are warm and friendly. There is a beautiful enclosed front yard with outdoor table for dining. There is a nice supermarket across the street and ample street parking is available. There is a W/D and full kitchen with many supplies. Comfortable bed and clean and modern bathroom.
Would highly recommend this place and would stay here again without hesitation.
My wife and I were enjoying our honeymoon trip in California. LA was our fourth stop. My first impression of the Westwood Cottage was cozy, natural, and idyllic. It locates in a very quiet and beautiful neighborhood. Moreover it had a carefully tended garden. We were also very pleased to find out that it was super close to food markets, shopping centers, as well as UCLA. We really enjoyed our two-day stay in the cottage and we highly recommend it to anyone who is planning a holiday trip to LA.
We needed a nice home base for a research project we are doing at UCLA. The Westwood Cottage was perfect. Close to campus and Westwood Villiage, but also quiet and comfortable. Valerie and Gus are great hosts. The cottage has a great LA bungalow feel. I'm not sure of its vintage but it felt kind of twenties--except for the huge TV and reliable Wi-Fi.
My family had a great time at the Westwood Cottage!! It was in walking distance to the Westfield Mall so plenty of food choices and great movie theater for great family night out. It was close to Hyatt on the Avenue of the Stars but much cheaper and there is a full kitchen so we could cook healthy meals. Very safe neighborhood and very close to the university and other fun places near the Beverly Hill area. The host family is super friendly too! We highly recommend Valerie's place if you are visiting LA.
I work at the UCLA Medical Center in Westwood. My husband, our 9 year old daughter and I love to travel and enjoy meeting travelers who stay in Westwood Cottage.
