Great Stay in LA
Great Stay in LA
This little house has so much charm! The views of the ocean are simply stunning. Check-in was smooth as silk, the house was clean and inviting. Beds were comfy. WiFi worked great. Kitchen was wonderful. The back porch that faces the ocean cannot be beat and the the location of this cottage is perfecto! We walked to the coffee shop each morning in Playa Del Rey and we biked to Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach easily. We will certainly stay here again. Only suggestions are the bikes (thank you so much for having them available) could use a little TLC and the shades in the sun room are a bit cranky. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We had a blast.

I rented this beach house for 4 nights for my small family only me & my wife and my 9 month old baby girl .the agent her name is Romy who checked me in was very nice and tried to explain everything to us to the best of her knowledge but never mentioned that we can not get upstairs to the second level .which we found out later that we can not use because the owner only is allowed to use it (i wish that was explained to me when i was doing my reservation).anyways the first level of the house was big enough we did not really had problem with that .our stay was ok until we checked out and before we leave we did our best to leave the property in good condition we put all the used towels in the laundry basket,dumb all the trash bags to the trash cans and put it outside the house for pick up and clean the dishes and cups we used and put it in the dishwasher we did all what we can do to check out and leave the house in good shape specially our usage to the house was very light we just a small family eventhough we had some guests came in for couple of hours in the last day of our stay.few days later it was very irritating and disappointig to recieve a letter that was written with a very rude language from an agent named Robert saying that they had to hold some of my deposite for some reasons that i found really rediculous such as there was popcorn on the floor or sand by the showers .or using furniture that i was not supposed to use that belonge to the owner !!.well i think we spent at least one hour before we leave to clean up the house but im not supposed to mob your floor since you already charged me cleaning fees for that and sand by the shower that is even more irritating because the whole house in on the sand please give me a break we were just taking shwers not pouring sand into the drains!!...and finally using a funiture that im not supposed to use.i think he was talking about a a small baby chair that will hardly fit a one year old baby that i used for my daughter and i was never told that im not supposed to use it +.please give me a break.anyways you think what you think can you just write what you want in a more polite language little better than writing that the owner was generous to refund me that check or we had to pay extra to clean up what are you calling a mess and i call it very decent usage for a small family .just wanted to share my review so peaople be aware of this finally tried to call the agent named Robert to talk but he never called back

Manager response: In response to the negative review listed above My clients were very disappointed to find their home left in such poor condition after the guests departure. The hardwood floors were covered with sand as were the showers and drains. Considering the house is equipped with an outside shower with hot/cold water, sand issues are rarely a problem. Additionally, the "house rules" posted on the refrigetor clearly states that the use of the upstairs deck and furniture are off limits. As we walked through the house, we found Hard candy melted on the hardwood floors and popcorn everywhere. The condition was not what is considered normal wear and tear and required additional cleaning and fees. Under the circumstances, I think the deduction was more than fair. The owners could have requested that we withhold the entire security deposit pending future drain problems, $100 is a modest fee for the condition the property was left in. I am sorry the guests didn't agree with the deduction but please take the time to read our other reviews our guest love the property and the way they are treated. This is the first time we have had to deal with such issues.
We cancelled several summer plans and rented the lovely cottage for a 3 day weekend to celebrate our son's 13th birthday. It was a great move! He had an incredible time. He had a big beach bash with his friends. He had some boys sleep over. The neighbors were wonderful. The place could not have been more charming. The location was fantastic. And the owners, Ed and Robyn were as kind and generous as one could have hoped for. We would love to do it again. We highly recommend this perfect getaway!

Perfect little beach house
Perfect little beach house
The beaches near LA are covered with massive houses with unnecessarily large TVs and fancy furniture you wouldn't want to sit on in a bathing suit, but alas, this unassuming little blue beach cottage is all you need for the perfect beach getaway! It's simple but has everything you could need including a small grill to BBQ and then enjoy meals on the beachfront patio in front of the fire pit, all of the amenities an amateur cook could need including lots of spices, pots, and pans, a washer/dryer, lots of bath and beach towels, 2 full baths, and a king bed and 2 queen beds. My favorite part was the front room with the 2 queen beds where you can wake up, sit up and immediately see the ocean. And then you can just open the door, and you are a mere few steps to sand in your toes. The house is perfectly positioned, far enough from the bike path so it's not too noisy but close enough to do some people watching! There is a volleyball net out front, perfect for the active family! The owners also leave 2 beach cruisers (and a bike lock) for your use which we took for a few nice rides on the path to Venice Beach and the surrounding beach neighborhoods. So rent the house, stock up on food, and then settle in because there is no reason to really leave this house once you are there! Only small problem included the dishwasher was having issues toward the end of our week so we called to get fixed but wasn't fully fixed in time. However, just a small glitch and we hand washed what we needed. I would also suggest investing in a little bigger grill since the current one doesn't fit both meat and vegetables and who doesn't love to grill on the beach! Landlord was very responsive to email and phone calls. They even left us some fruit to enjoy upon our arrival!
