  • Great location and many amenities.

    "Pleased with property, especially the deck, patio, hot tub area. And of course the kitchen was fabulous. Bedrooms and baths very nice also. Only complaint was sleeper sofa not functional as a bed, broken mattress hooks. But that didn't prevent a wonderful memorable stay. The pod parked in front of the house across the street made driveway backing extremely difficult but that wasn't owners fault. Would highly recommend."

  • This one’s a gem!

    "We arrived very late at the Cottage and found everything perfectly set for us by James the owner and his team — such a relief! Delightful spot, lovely peaceful gardens and private patio (with oranges and lemons too!) Comfy bed, super clean and very convenient to the local bakeries and cafes. We also loved the free bottle of wine waiting for us (another relief) as we did our all our computer business on the patio deck & appreciated all the amenities and cute decor. Truly a gem, we will recommend to our friends as well. — Suzy & Jim"

  • 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."
