Terrific host, great location

  • 5 of 5

I could not have found any better accommodation for two subsequent work trips to the area. Carmen is a fantastic host who makes sure that you do feel right at home at this charming cottage close to the beach, dining and shopping. The pictures on this site can't convey all the cozy little details that reflect the great taste this house has been furnished with.

The wonderful neighbors around are awesome (Thank you, Aurora, for the Octoberfest invite; we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves..) and add to the true feeling of staying at a home away from home. If you are looking to stay in that area, do not stay anywhere else; you will not regret it.

While I may not have another opportunity to come for work anytime soon again, I am considering a trip just for pleasure now that I experienced the area and Carmen's hospitality. Thank you!

Adorable Cottage in a GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is just adorable and so close to beach, shopping & Venice Canals. I always felt safe to walk my dog at all hours of the night.

I have been in the Travel Industry since 1978 and can't rave enough about Carmen, the owner. She goes beyond anything I have seen to make you comfortable.

Example, she even moved her car because of street cleaning to allow us to park in front of the house.

I have rented this cottage twice, and will surely come back.

Thanks Carmen for always making my trips up from San Diego so relaxing.

PERFECT Venice Beach Location!!! (This is our new vacation lodging whenever we're in town)

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a girls trip planned and did not have a rental car. Many local friends mentioned what a GREAT location we were in and we couldn't agree more! We rented the bungalow in the back, utilized the bikes for evening boardwalk cruising and the short trip up to Santa Monica, walked 2 blocks over to Abbott Kinney and used the Starline Tour bus (which Carmen mentioned to us) to hitch a ride into LA and do the touristy thing for 2 days. The beach is literally 3-4 blocks from the house!! The bungalows are close and with everyone's windows open you can hear others moving about but everyone was always respectful of the time of day and friendly in passing.

Carmen has thought of everything! Don't worry about packing beach towels, hair dryers, etc...she even had an ironing board. She lives just down the street and was readily available to us if we had any questions. Carmen was ever so helpful and went above and beyond, down to offering us a ride to the airport as she would be headed that way to pick up her sister on the same day as our departure.

I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had at this lit'l bungalow. We will ABSOLUTELY be keeping in touch with Carmen to stay here again!

This property was the perfect location to walk to many great shops, restaurants, and the beach. The owner was friendly and very easy to work with. It was very neat and clean and the perfect size for 2. We will be staying here again next time!

This place is great!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, baby daughter and I stayed in Carmen's bungalow just before the Thanksgiving holiday. What a refreshing, wonderful stay we had in this house! The feel of the house and the neighborhood is so relaxing and laid back. The pictures don't really capture just how charming it is. When we arrived Carmen gave us the scoop on a great pizza place within walking distance, on Abbott Kinney... the street is hopping with activity even though the neighborhood surrounding is quiet. Carmen was really friendly and helpful the whole time, she lives right down the street... not intrusive, just there when you need her. In fact we locked ourselves out with a crying baby inside and luckily we got a hold of Carmen who came right over.

The house is within walking distance from the boardwalk and beach, one of my favorite spots in all of Southern California. We had a great time there and in Santa Monica, Malibu, it was a great home base. Thanks for a great refreshing little vacation at your charming house, Carmen!

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a three night stay at this adorable cottage. It had everything we needed...we biked all over, super convenient to Abbot Kinney shops, restaurants and coffee shops, yet was on a quiet street. We would like to say here every time we visit!!
