38. Born in Canada, raised in Australia, live in Los Angeles. I rent my home through airbnb too! : )
Martha's Cottage was a perfect place to stay for a visit to Los Angeles and Kimberley was an extremely friendly and helpful host. The cottage itself is immaculate, tasteful and extremely comfortable, situated on a quiet street that is still very close to the heart of the action in both Highland Park and Eagle Rock - the restaurants, stores, coffee shops and galleries on York Blvd are only a brisk walk down the hill. The living room gets beautiful light and there is a spacious yard for sitting out in the sun or shade with a book.
As a former NELA resident, I would absolutely stay at this cottage again on future visits and totally recommend it to anybody looking for a home away from home in the true heart of Los Angeles.
This is a very nice cottage. It is like living in your own little home. Furnishings are lovely. Kitchen and laundry right there. Off street parking. The very best part are the owner hosts. We were greeted and treated like family. Absolutely will stay here every time we are in LA.
Response from Kimberley:
We loved hosting you....you are welcome back whenever you're in town!
Staying at Martha's cottage has been perfect for my work in Pasadena. Also very convenient to Downtown, Chinatown, the Dodgers, Echo park...
Kim has been a great host and helpful with all necessities.
Highland Park is a very hip hood, and new to me. Enjoying York Ave, with cool bars, artists, lunch spots...
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kimberley's house. It is very clean, and furnished and decorated in a comfortable/whimsical/delightful way. We were there for 19 days over Christmas and New Year's holidays, and had family Christmas dinner and other get-togethers (with Kimberley's permission). Everyone who came to the house loved it. Comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms with nice towels, great kitchen - the house is very light and open - a nice place to be.
The neighborhood is quiet and felt very safe.
Kimberley gave us an introductory walk through the day before we "moved in" and left a list of contacts in case problems arose (none did).
I would definitely like to stay there again.
Response from Kimberley:
Thanks lynne! It was a joy to have you and your family stay...you treated my home as if it were your own and i so appreciate that.
We had a great visit.
The location was like a bit of country in the middle of LA. Small, but beautiful garden attractive to both people and birds.
House was older, but had been refurbished and tastefully decorated.
Host was friendly and accomodated our every need.
It ws wonderful to have kimberley as a guest! He took great care of the apartment and communication was very easy. It would be a pleasure to have her come again any time

Kimberly was a tremendous guest. She was super friendly and I'd be happy to host her again anytime.
Kimberley is a fantastic guest. We enjoyed our conversations and were happy to give a few directions when needed, and in the process we learned of a few great new restaurants. We hope that her time in Chicago was enjoyable and we would have her again any time.
