Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Charming Cottage Guest House was the perfect place to stay while visiting friends and family for the week of Thanksgiving. We love staying in a neighborhood, and this fit the bill. This place is about 3 miles from Santa Monica Pier, but if the ocean isn't your focus (and it wasn't ours), then this is a great place. The Brentwood area is lovely, and within a 30 minute walk from the cottage we had lots of places to eat and shop. It is also fairly close to the 10 and the 405, making it easy to get to and from the airport. We spent much time in the Pacific Palisades area, which was extremely easy to access via this location. The "cottage" itself is not much bigger than a decent-sized hotel room, but it was perfect for our needs. We were out and about most days, and had access to Netflix and Amazon Prime shows when we wanted to relax late in the evening. We used the small kitchenette primarily to make breakfasts and a couple of lunches, and loved that we had a choice of either a traditional coffee pot or a French press. The queen sized bed was extremely comfortable and the shower most delightful. The weather cooperated and we were able to sit outside on the little patio a couple of times. We were pleased to have a garage for our rental car as well. The owner, Evelyn, provided excellent customer service: we were able to check in a bit earlier than the assigned time, and when the internet went out, she immediately made arrangements to get it fixed (within a day). We would definitely consider staying here again!

Oasis in the the heart of a cosmopolitan city

  • 4 of 5

Evelyn Kelly has created a home away from home. From the filtered water to the large candles and a warm throw to the tables and chairs in the small patio to the choices of Netflix and hulu on TV, every detail was well planned.

Clean, comfortable and good value.

The cottage was just as advertised, everything was above average quality right down to the Kleenex! Beautiful neighborhood, loved the Sunday market just up the road. Though The Pier/3rd Ave was to long of a walk for us Uber was cheap and quick. Nice bed/towels, great TV and lots of hot water, even the cups/plates and glassware we're very nice. We used the beach chairs and umbrella, things you can't pack. Be sure to check out Brentwood Country Mart, we met Jennifer Garner there! Had great meals at Misfit's and R + D Kitchen, best carrot cake ever!

Just perfect for two! Charming!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our son in West LA. Perfect place for two. The cottage is very charming and quiet. Enjoyed having a private patio and a garage with laundry was a bonus. Evelyn was a great hostess, giving us detail by detail for checking in and leaving. Great little kitchenette to make breakfast and quick meals if needed. About 4 blocks from grocery stores and drugstores. Mass transit runs right past the cottage. Very clean and filled with all the amenities you need. We look forward to going back and staying !

Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5

Ms Kelly has an amazing talent for creating properties within a consistent theme. We appreciate how reliably we can make a reservation with her. This cottage had small square footage but with a remarkable sense of flow. We felt like we had a cabin onboard a luxury liner--but without the sway. We used the patio every day and appreciated the private garage.
