  • The Perfect Little Place

    "My stay in Santa Monica was just perfect.The cottage is VERY CLEAN, fully remodeled and simply and nicely decorated. The small courtyard is a nice added feature.The neighborhood is quite and so are the neighbors. The bed in the master bedroom is super comfortable.The kitchen is stocked with enough cookware and dishes to meet your needs while you stay. No issues with the WiFi or TV. Location is just a few minutes from the 3rd Street promenade with quick easy access to the freeway. Gary is very responsive and helpful. The garage is small, however, a safe place to park your car is a bonus. Note to all: the cottage is on the second floor above the garages, you must be able to climb a couple of flights of stairs. Listings like these are why I continue to book through Home Away."

  • Friendly welcome by Lorna in person. Clean, neat and well appointed. Good location.

    "Cozy and comfortable; Lorna thought of (almost) everything. We're new to HomeAway stays and could have used a safe for passports etc. Otherwise we'd recommend this place happily!"

  • Zen Cottage was the perfect location for my stay in Los Angeles

    "Hosts Howard and Jacqui have done everything to make Zen Cottage a wonderful place to stay. We have stayed in a number of rental properties but this was special because everything was just right from bed linens, to towels to kitchen equipment. What a treat to open a kitchen drawer or cabinet and find not odds and ends or the minimal requirements but everything you might need and all of excellent quality. The overall design and decoration of Zen Cottage is lovely including some very nice Asian pieces in each room. Two couples would do well here because both bedrooms and both bathrooms are first rate. It is a very quiet neighborhood at night so count on getting a good night's sleep. And Howard and Jacqui are nearby, helpful and very warm people. The location of Zen cottage was excellent for us because we were going to many parts of LA. Naturally all of Santa Monica and Venice are within a few minutes drive. Or it's a 20 minute bike ride to ocean beaches. You can use surface roads for getting to Malibu, UCLA, Brentwood, even Beverly Hills and beyond but at some point you will have to get on a freeway and the infamous 10 and 405 are minutes away. Off-hours you can get to downtown LA or Hollywood in 22 minutes (v. 50 min in rush hour). In the quiet neighborhood around Zen cottage you will find shops that you can even walk to. The immediate streets are tree lined residential ones and it's a 5 minute walk to Santa Monica Blvd and 7 minutes to Wilshire Blvd. Btw, we are not TV viewers but there were large flat screens and associated equipment in the living room and each bedroom. Also some reviewers mentioned "parking" in their reviews. Do not be put off by this. You have an assigned off-street parking spot 30 feet from the front door. Only if you want to park on the street will you need to listen to Howard's very clear one minute explanation of the local rules which are quite simple."

  • Amazing place

    "Amy's home was the perfect place for our start in LA. The whole family felt at home. The House is at a very nice street with many trees and close to everything in Santa Monica. We loved the nice backyard and the amazing stereo. Amy is very nice and straightforward host. Highly recommended!"
