Cottage is adorable and comfortable. The patio is private and the perfect spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening.

Everything we were looking for and more !

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this quaint Santa Monica cottage! It was the perfect spot for our weekend trip. Location is GREAT right on the corner of Montana ave with several cute shops restaurants and grocery stores. No need for a car - we walked or took short uber rides to downtown area. Evelyn is a lovely host and had every amenity you would need. Washer and dryer was definitely a plus as well! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review. We will check out the squeak. The Directv is working (along withRoku) but perhaps was on wrong input. So sorry this guest struggled with it, it's an easy fix if guests give me a call. I'm always available.

Cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It has beautiful landscaping, and is quiet despite being near to numerous shops and restaurants. Convenient walking to many places. It was helpful to have a dedicated parking spot.

great location- well stocked kitchen

  • 5 of 5

This has been our best experience with vrbo! The location was wonderful: close enough to the beach that we walked there every day. The surrounding area was lovely- beautiful homes, quiet neighborhood, charming shopping area with a good variety of shops and restaurants.

Being located in the NW corner of LA we also were close to the places we wanted to see: the Getty, Warner Studios, UCLA... We monitored traffic and drove during the less crowded times and could get to most sites in around 30-45 minutes.

The cottage itself was indeed charming. There are 5 cottages on the property. Ours was back from the road and very quiet. The gardens were lovely. The decor is dated but clean and very comfortable. I was especially pleased with the well stocked kitchen. We only dined out once for lunch so the kitchen was important. There were plenty of cookware and utensils- dishes and glasses. Salt and pepper, coffee filters, waxed paper, garbage bags, paper towels, new sponges- were supplied. There were no additional spices but I brought some of my own. There was also a box of kleenex along with dishwashing soap, laundry soap, dryer sheets, cleaning supplies. There was even a tool kit in the kitchen.

The living room is very comfortable- great tv (though it took a while to figure out the remotes).

The washer and dryer is in a closet in the bedroom- we did several loads and these worked well- ironing board and iron came in handy. And, as I stated, all washing supplies are provided.

The bathroom has a medicine cabinet- and additional table to place items. A good supply of towels was available. The bathtub has claw feet so is higher than most- you need to be able to step over to get in. Be careful of the hot water!!

The bed was quite comfortable- with plenty of blankets available and even a bathrobe! There is no dresser but the closet has room to hang clothes and shelves on which to place items.

We found St. Paul's Lutheran Church at 958 Lincoln Blvd. that was very welcoming.

There was parking available off the alley behind the property. It was very good not to have to park on the street. Each cottage has its own designated parking space. Getting in and out of the alley was very easy.

Evelyn, the owner, was very available via phone and answered our questions well.

We highly recommend this cottage in Santa Monica!
