This charming cottage is nestled in a lush tropical garden behind a classic Spanish Revival home in the heart of beautiful Belmont Heights. Ideally located three palm-lined blocks away from the restaurants, shopping and bars of trendy 2nd Street in Belmont Shore and six blocks from the beach, this delightful property is close enough to be walking distance from all the fun while far enough away to guarantee peace, quiet, plentiful parking, and easy access to freeways and all of Southern California.
Upon arriving at the property, you'll feel the California/Beach vibe inherent in the neighborhood. As you make your way up and through the wrought iron gates you'll get your first look at the lushness and warmth of the back yard area where your cottage awaits. Amid the palms, ponds and inviting seating areas in the back yard, you'll see your cottage, built in 1922, and all yours.
A private porch awaits you with a bistro set, the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. Inside, the living area features a comfortable sitting area with a queen sleeper sofa that can sleep an additional 2 guests. The dining area overlooks the garden area, enjoys great morning sun and features french doors that open out onto the private porch area. If you're visiting on business, the executive-style desk area gives you ample space to spread out and work. When the day is done, a clever dry bar area holds ice bucket, glassware, wine opener, and shaker to help aid the transition from daytime to evening.
The bedroom is cozy and comfortable, featuring a queen bed with 500 count sheets, and a second flat-screen TV with cable and DVR (this time a 24'). The en suite bath is efficient but complete, with a tub/shower combination, pedestal sink and full closet.
The kitchen is great for those spending a little more time with us, as it features a full-sized refrigerator and range, microwave, coffee makers, toaster, and complete dishware, cutlery and cooking paraphernalia. Or, if you're not in the mood to cook, pick up something hot & tasty from the corner gourmet grocery just five doors down, or drop into one of more than 30 restaurants on 2nd street, 3 blocks away.
The shared garden/patio area is a place to enjoy the beautiful mild weather of Southern California. There's a waterfall and pond, firepit, and comfortable sitting areas. Nearby is a dining area seating six.
Best of all is the location of this little oasis--close to everything, but a haven of tranquility when you arrive home again. We look forward to welcoming you, and doing all we can to insure a fun and restful visit.
