  • Perfect LA home from home.

    "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."

  • Perfect Family Getaway

    "We came down from San Francisco to LA to visit family for a few days. We had our 11-year old son with us. The house is almost 100 years old and has tons of charm (claw foot tub in one bathroom). The details in each room were charming and thoughtful with each room painted in different colors with comfortable furniture. The house, kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The house had everything we needed - blankets, laundry, lots of towels, fast wifi, dishes, pots, pans, hair dryer and coffee maker (most important!). The house is private but still close to the beach and restaurants. We walked to the beach playgrounds and the Santa Monica Pier every day, which was fun for our child. We were able to park easily due to the parking spot. There were great restaurants on Main Street (a block away).  Dog Town Coffee is a must.  We even ventured a little further away to get sandwiches at Bay Cities (per a friend's recommendation).  Important to us - the house and neighborhood were quiet at night and we were able to get good sleep. . The location really worked for us. We went to a hip Venice Beach restaurant one night and drove twice a day to our relatives in Pacific Palisades (13 minutes!). The owner introduced herself to us and was helpful with restaurant recommendations and ideas for us to do with our kid - thank you for that. We had a car with us. But, we needed to take Ubers a couple of times, and there were many drivers available to us close by. So, that was a nice unexpected perk. We will be renting this house again!"

  • Wonderful Stay

    "To start off, my flight came in at 9am and check in wasn't until a bit later but I was offered arrangements to drop my luggage off so I didn't have to lug it around which was great. The Casita was comfortable and quite cozy. I will say that coming from Texas we automatically thought there would be an AC unit for the room but there wasn't. The property manager was wonderful for bringing us an extra fan and turns out that was all we needed especially at night, it felt wonderful. The closed in property offers you privacy from the street. You do share the property as described with other people who may be staying in the other rooms, however, the guest behind us were extremely friendly and we had a nice little conversation so don't be shy. We were able to walk to the grocery store, different places for lunch and dinner, and a nail salon. We were only blocks away from the Pier, beach, and Mall. Charley! I must include something about him. He definitely makes himself at home and is extremely friendly and likes to cuddle. The owner is very helpful and makes wonderful suggestions. This was my 1st time to California/Santa Monica and I cannot wait to return and to stay at the Casita again."

  • great location; clean; roomy; almost perfect

    "The property is in a great location--easy walking to great restaurants and the Santa Monica Pier. The owner provided very clear directions on how to get to the building, park in the garage, and gain entrance into the duplex. The loft duplex was spacious, with plenty of room for five people,and everything was clean. The private roof top seating area was quite pleasant. There were a few issues that the owner could easily remedy to make guests feel welcome and comfortable -- for example, it took us a while to figure out that the hot and cold faucets in the hall bathroom were on backward. In one of the bedrooms there was a printer on the floor between the wall and the bed. We had to move it out of the way to get in bed. There were no dish towels in the kitchen and no washcloths in the bathrooms. And, while there were beautiful comforters on the bed, there were no top sheets, and the only pillows had shams on them, not standard pillow cases. The owner was unavailable during our short stay there, and his assistant did not get back to us until the following day after we contacted him about not having hot water. When he did respond, he offered a discount on our stay (which we did not take, since, by then, we had figured out how to get hot water in the shower). If these issues were fixed, I would probably stay there again."
