Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage. Jennifer the owner was really kind and helpful. The cottage is very comfortable and the fruit trees are really fun. We had fresh grapefruits and lemons every day. The cat who lives in the bungalow behind the house visited everyday. The location is great, very quiet safe neighborhood. We will definitely be staying here again.

great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My parents stayed at Jennifer's house and really love the home, bikes and proximity to the beach. Because of the location they were able to ride to the beach every day and we took in some of Venice's hot spots. Jennifer was great to communicate and figure out logistics with.

Cozy and quaint

Great location. Easy to walk or bike to the beach. Our family stayed for a week in July and really enjoyed the cottage. Came out for a wedding and loved having the garden to entertain.

Charming cottage near Venice Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and granddaughter and I sent three nights at the charming cottage near Venice Beach. The property is in a nice quiet neighborhood, conveniently located to shopping, restaurants and beaches. The gardens provided fresh ingredients for our supper, and my granddaughter enjoyed exploring the nooks and crannies around the property, as well as petting the resident outdoor cats. The kitchen is pleasant and has everything needed for a short stay. We especially loved lounging in the backyard gazebo, listening to music and surrounded by lush plantings. It was a wonderful place to read and have morning coffee and an evening glass of wine. The home is furnished with in an eclectic French country style and immaculately clean. We would definitely rebook if we were to return to the area. My 6 year old granddaughter has wonderful memories of our weekend together there.

Perfect LA home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing 8 nights at Jennifer's cottage in Venice, just a 10 minute bike ride away from the coast. The house had everything you could need, and more! We particularly enjoyed the bikes for easy access to everywhere. The street and area are so pretty. Venice beach is fab, especially Mercedes Bar - def recommend trying for happy hour....very strong cocktails! The stay was wonderful and I will definitely be booking again.
