Newly listed Medeterainian Cozy 2Bd Cottage House
"PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION AND THE BLUE "MORE DETAILS" TAB BEFORE MAKING YOUR DECISION ABOUT THIS OR ANY OTHER HOME AWAY PROPERTY". Thank you.
Hello folks! This cottage is not an "uptight' Beverly Hills spit and polished 800 dollar a night bungalow or a full sized home. It's a economically priced, two bedroom garden cottage.A quiet and relaxing laid back , comfortable refuge on a large property owned by an artist and family.A very cozy get away on the Woodland Hills/Calabasas border.This Is Not A Share! This Is Also Not Some Noisy Apartment! You have the entire place to yourself.This property is relatively newly listed on VRBO, however on other sites it has over thirty great reviews! Please feel free to utilize the 'instant booking button on the site. .. If you decide this is the place for you and yours,and it is a last minute booking (three days or less before you arrive) you must send a request via email to book. Without that prior contact on a last minute booking ,we will most likely decline your request. Please leave a telephone number so that we may give you a quick call .However...please if you or any person in your party is a smoker, do not book this home. There will be a "dishonesty penalty" charged to you if you smoke anywhere on the premise.OK...with that bit of info out of the way..,
Centrally heated and cooled.Tall vaulted ceilings. Wood bedroom floors.(2) fun, yet tastefully styled bed rooms. One with french doors that look out onto one of the 'two' 'garden patios' through french doors. The linens are of sufficient thread count and are impeccably clean.(I clean them myself). A bathroom with a 'full bathtub',and not just a shower. You can be assured of peaceful uninterrupted nights sleep because (1) the intentionally designed, outside noise sound resistant construction of the cottage,(2)the house is situated on an almost twenty thousand square foot Gated Compound,(3) this is Not An Apartment Or Condo whereas you are 'held captive' to the whims of noisy partying or fighting neighbors...This is a completely detached building with total privacy as it's sole design mission.(4) The house is situated almost two hundred feet off of the main thoroughfare.
We provide cotton towels and hair dryer for the fully tiled cozy bathroom. .
The kitchen is fully appointed ,including a microwave,full sized refrigerator, full stove , toaster,spices that would satisfy most palettes,dishes,and an assortment of pots and pans. An array of gourmet teas and coffee are there for your enjoyment.Thank goodness the drought is over..the dish washer is back! There is a clothes washer and dryer solely for your use
The step down living room is a combination of Mediterranean 'shabby chic' blended with an 'American Santa Fe' that gels nicely from the brightly waxed Spanish tiled floors to the Ornate tall arched ceilings with Casablanca ceiling fans..The place has french doors every where that give it a bright and sunny 'inside garden feel" during the day ,and the carefully arraigned wall sconces set the mood for either romantic to highly festive for the night. Flat screen television and 'wi-fi' are included. .
Step out of the french doors to either one of the two private patios for a relaxing glass of wine . The Barbecue pit with complementary coals will give you the chance to flex those 'out door culinary skills' you haven't used in quite some time..
Best of all its an easy short drive through 'back road beautiful mountain scenery' direct to Malibu Beach California .Lots of hiking and biking trails,(2 complementary bicycles available..."use and borrow at your own risk".). 'High end 'shopping abounds well within easy walking distance.Conveniently situated between the Calabasas Commons,(as seen frequently on TMZ and other shows), and at least four other shopping malls and stand alone boutiques abound. There are also plenty of' Gourmet' restaurants for every taste and palate . Public transit is within blocks to take you to local places like Hollywood, Universal studios, Venice Beach, and such.There is no need to base your 'home away from home' in any one of those congested areas when within a few minutes you can be there.Lets face it, most Vacations to 'Big Cities' aren't very relaxing... Where you are able to go and really 'unwind' is what makes all of the difference.
Hope to see you soon.

Rich and Eva were great!
Very hospitable and open. Stated very clearly what their expectations were and allowed us as guest to enjoy ourselves. Home was tidy and perfectly sized for our trip. The driveway was a bit tight but if that’s my only problem i don’t have problems. Great location with manageable transit to and from the city. Thanks for a great trip
very very cozy
Easy, Comfortable...Everything promised & wonderful hosts
We had the pleasure of staying here twice - once when I was apartment shopping with my student daughter & once again when we moved her down. It is exactly as advertised, a cool little cottage to make as your home base. Communication was crisp & clear...the first time we stayed, Rich & Eva even hung out a little late to meet us even though it was her birthday & they had dinner plans - thoughtful folks for sure. We were coming & going both visit(s) so we really didn't lavish ourselves although it's a great place to just hang out. Had one miscue (operator error) with the tv remote & Rich sorted it out for me with his typical efficiency. Off Burbank ave. it's a really well located spot. I'd like to thank the hosts, because as a stressful trip for us (moving a kid to a new town) it is gratifying to know that the accommodation is rock solid and homey & everything is cool.
Cozy two bedroom cottage, with a several quirks
Nice place to stay for a few days, but there are some issues. The bed was fine, with nice linens. The bedroom is very small with no place to have a suitcase. There is a dresser with ample space so you can unpack if you like. The bathroom was clean but it has no amenities so bring your own soap and shampoo. On the other hand, the kitchen had a few things to assist with cooking -- spices and such. The kitchen sink only has a sprayer so that was inconvenient at times. The living area was comfortable.
A couple of complaints. Don't say there is a dishwasher if it is disconnected. Also be clear that you cannot use the washer/dryer unless you stay for at least a week. That was very disappointing since we had been on the road for well over a week and specifically rented this house because it had a washer/dryer supposedly. Not very good.
We will probably look for another place the next time we are in the area. The hosts were nice enough, but there is just too much that is a bit off for us to rate the unit any higher.
WOW! That was a unfair review....
Hello and good morning.
I felt compelled to drop a line after reading this review. I'd like to point out, we specifically named the place "Cottage' because that is exactly what it is. A quaint quiet inexpensive Cottage. To attempt to compare the bed room sizes to a normal sized home is grossly unfair. They could have easily reserved one of our full sized homes. .. A much more expensive choice.I'm betting a tight budget was a concern as it is to many of us fellow travelers.
Also please read this....
"There is a clothes washer and dryer solely for your use*(Due to the drought,the washer and dryer are strictly for stays of one week or longer.If you are not planning your stay for a week or longer please do not request use of the washer or dryer. It is awkward and uncomfortable to have to say no.) Also because of the drought the dishwasher may not be used)"....End quote.
That is in the small ,"yet totally complete" body of the listing page description that they would have to read.I can not think of anything that could have been written more clearly or concisely . If they did not read it,.. that is unfortunate. If it "was read" before renting the cottage,then negatively written about?...you get the idea.
We do not offer displayed soaps to our guest due to the fact , different people have different types of skin.In the past we've kept soaps,etc. in the bath...However over the years on different occasions, children have had allergic reactions to some of the soaps.We "DO" keep bar soap in the house . "Usually", if someone has a request for soap, they ask. It's kept in ample supply in the cottage. In the cabinet next to the extra toilet paper. Not to mention there was, and still is an organic soap pump dispenser that is "still" in the bath. For any other type of soap ,They had but to ask, or look in the usual places.
We certainly do hope that the poorly rated items they've written about in review weren't written from a place of malice of an" unknown origin" After all they say in their review " The host were nice enough"..?
Folks this place is cute and homey. It is not a 400 dollar a night room at the Ritz.Nor do we advertise it as such..Spending a dime and being angry not to receive a 100 dollar value isn't an honest mind set. If you are on a budget, you will NEVER find (at least in the LA area) a better place to lay your hat!
Great small house in nice location
Big lot with several houses but you have your privacy with a patio.The house was small and comfortable for a couple and 2 kids.Full kitchen. Everywhere was very clean.Great location, close to major highway and beautiful beaches.The bed in the master bedroom was too firm for me. Second bedroom was ok, with two beds for 2 kids. We stayed for 3 nights and was really good for us.
Big and Clean
We want to thank you for your help and hospitality when we were in Los Angeles, last june 17th. Thank you for giving us a bigger house. we were very confortable there. We hope we can contact you for our next trip.
Every part of your house was clean and very organized. every thing works perfecty.
Thank you, Maykool and Alina.
