About this listing
Want to get away from it all right in the middle of Los Angeles? Our little cottage lies at the end of a quiet side street, surrounded by trees and beautiful landscaping, while still affording easy access to all the shopping, dining, and culture your heart desires. Not only that, but the place has some real character; local historical records suggest that the main property, built in the 1920’s, was originally a brothel!
A word of warning, especially for those new to the LA area: you will definitely need a car if you want to experience all the area has to offer. And there’s a lot to enjoy! The cottage is located right off the famous (infamous?) Sunset Boulevard, roughly 3 miles from UCLA, 5 miles from Rodeo Drive, 10 miles from Santa Monica (the beach!), 13 miles from Hollywood (Sunset Strip), and 20 miles from Pasadena or Downtown. There is one designated parking space and usually ample street parking. Should you want to remain a homebody, you’ll find almost anything you might need three minutes up the hill in the shops and restaurants at The Glen Center; many of them deliver.
The bedroom has French doors that open onto a patio and a hillside of trees. The bedroom has a king-size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, a walk-in closet, and two cozy bathrobes.
The cheerful living room looks out on its own deck and has a wood-burning fireplace with an evening’s supply of logs. The couch converts to a full-size bed. The TV comes with many channels and complimentary Netflix streaming. There is also a DVD/CD player and a music player/charging dock for your iPod or iPhone.
The bathroom has a lighted make up mirror, hair dryer, soap and shampoo, and plenty of soft, cushy towels.
The bright, fully equipped kitchen has a stove, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, toaster, coffee pot, water kettle, coffee grinder, and a refrigerator with icemaker, along with everything else you might expect, including some of the basics (sugar, paper towels, salt and pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, tea and coffee).
There is a washer and dryer available, and laundry detergent is supplied. You will need quarters to operate the machines.
No smoking indoors. Smoking allowed on deck or patio. Pets are welcome, but please no aggressive or yappy dogs. The neighbors are all quiet folks, writers and artists. That's why they love it here! Please no loud music, wild parties, etc.
