Why James Ulmer (Owner), Boneshia Perri (Property Manager) chose Mar Vista

A TERRIFIC AREA where the traffic and parking is not nearly as congested and stressful as at the beach traffic yet is only minutes away from the ocean. We're also right amongst the cafes, cinemas, boutiques and shopping of the wonderful West side. A great location in what is already a world-class 'destination location.' Lovely backyard and patio, too!

What makes this cottage unique

Complementary use of our bikes to ride to the beach or explore the neighborhood -- or simply take the beach bus on the corner. Peaceful and quiet backyard terra-cotta patio (with charcoal BBQ) framed by bougainvillea and fountains looking out onto our lovely backyard garden and fruit trees. Complementary high-speed (6 megabyte) internet & Wi-Fi & cable HDTV. During your home orientation when you arrive, James can also serve as your 'virtual concierge' to help you plan your stay in LA.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear James, we just arrived at home a few days ago and really enjoyed our holiday trip.

We had a truly pleasant stay at the Beethoven Bungalow and loved coming "home"

into your cozy house after spending exciting days in Los Angeles. Thanks a

lot - also for always having good answers to our questions.

Couldn´t be happier!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely delightful, charming and cozy Cottage hideaway.  Walked to all the cafes and local shops, and the bus stop is extremely close. Great backyard that makes for some much-appreciated peace and quiet during our all-too-short stay...we even picked lemons and oranges from the tree. The owner, James, was extremely nice and helpful.  Would return in a heartbeat, thanks so much!

Good location near Abbot Kinney and Washington Road. Very nice permanent neighbors.

  • 4 of 5

First - two quibbles - the wifi instructions in the email packet were outdated (we found them later in the guest book), and the early check-in was not available as the room had not been cleaned.

But, otherwise, nice location with very friendly and helpful permanent neighbors who live on the premises.

HOURS OF FUN IS JUST MINUTES AWAY! We’re located on a treed residential street on the fabulous West side of Los Angeles, in the area of Mar Vista where where Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey and Culver City all meet...

From our lovely 2-bedroom home it's just 5 minutes to the freeways, 6 minutes to the famous Venice Beach and Venice Canals, and 8 minutes to the Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica promenade.

Top-flight restaurants, cinemas, supermarkets, golf course, parks and the Abbott Kinney antique shops are only 4-minutes away.

And if you drive down our cross street (passing a convenient supermarket and Costco shopping center) you'll arrive at the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice in less time than it takes to stroll around the block.
