Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 21, 2015
Studio, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

This delightful, totally renovated & furnished studio guest cottage is

perfect as a quiet vacation hideaway or a relaxing retreat if you plan

to stay longer. Best for a single guest or a couple, our cozy,

light-filled cottage is crowned by skylights and features French

doors opening onto a charming backyard patio and garden with lemon and

orange trees. We're situated on a treed, residential street only one

mile from the ocean in beautiful Mar Vista, right next to Santa Monica

and Marina del Rey.

Top-flight restaurants, cinemas and antique shops are 3-5 minutes

away. And if you drive down our cross street (passing a very

convenient Costco and an Albertson's supermarket), you'll arrive at

the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice in less time than it

takes to stroll around the block.

The cottage offers a full kitchen with all utensils, glasses and

cookware, as well as a large refrigerator, a gas range and oven, and

new over-the-counter microwave stove. Ingenious use of space allows

you to use the tiled counter top area as a computer/work space --

there is plenty of storage and shelves underneath -- and as a dining

area, as well as an extra counter space for preparing your groceries

from the nearby Venice and Mar Vista farmer's markets.

The apartment comes with cable TV (including all premium movie

channels and HBO), broadband DSL and a land line phone, all included

in the rent, as well as a CD player with CD library.

The studio's queen-size bed features an exceptional Temper-Pedic

mattress that offers a superior sleep, and a view looking out through

the French patio doors onto the backyard orange and lemon tress

beyond. The bathroom features a brand new corner circular shower and heat lamp. And next to the bougainvillea in the backyard, there's a convenient washer-dryer cabana which is shared with the main house's tenants.

There's non-restricted street parking and, of course, all utilities

are included in the rent.

Our "Beethoven's Bungalow" is a true gem in the heart of L.A.'s west

side, and is available for either

short-term (minimum four nights) or long-term stays.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear James, we just arrived at home a few days ago and really enjoyed our holiday trip.

We had a truly pleasant stay at the Beethoven Bungalow and loved coming "home"

into your cozy house after spending exciting days in Los Angeles. Thanks a

lot - also for always having good answers to our questions.

Beautiful, Charming, Perfect Little Cottage :-)

  • 5 of 5
Having never rented a private accommodation before (always hotels), I was a little concerned that the photos and video of this lovely little cottage rental would not be representative of the ACTUAL cottage, but boy was I wrong -- the cottage is even more charming and lovely than depicted in photos and the video clip (YouTube). I stayed in the cottage for a week - it was super quiet, super charming, SO HAPPY -- such a WONDERFUL place to stay and relax -- you would never know you were quite literally in the very center of a beach community and only minutes from Santa Monica/Los Angeles. Close to every major highway artery..... Just quite literally cannot say enough GREAT THINGS about my stay -- and the owner was a DELIGHT -- very kind, most hospitable, and the courtesy bottle of wine he left in the cottage as a "Welcome!" gift was most appreciated. I will without doubt book this cottage again - it was PERFECT :-)

We’ll Return to the Cottage Again and Again!

  • 5 of 5
What can we say? This is the third time we have stayed at Beethoven’s Cottage and we loved it once again. Lovely backyard, so peaceful, a quiet and safe neighborhood, and James was available whenever we needed him. The queen bed is incredibly comfy and the free bottle of wine to greet us made us feel even more at home than we usually do. If you are looking for a very comfy, cheerful and peaceful “home away from home,” this Cottage is it! Thanks again, James, for a wonderful stay.

A Charming Cottage in a Great Location!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I spent 6 nights at Beethoven's Cottage, which was in a perfect location for sight-seeing around Los Angeles. The owner was very nice and had a bottle of wine waiting for us in the cottage. He also left a binder full of information on restaurants, sight-seeing locations, beaches, etc. The yard was beautiful and very peaceful, and it was great to have a washer and dryer directly outside of our door - compliments of the owner.

Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Great Place! Everything was just as described. Loved being able to use the bike. Owner was very nice and quick to respond. Nice location and quiet neighborhood. I used public transportation during my stay and the bus stops were within walking distance of the cottage. Loved being able to use the washer and dryer during my stay!

Charming!

  • 5 of 5
Not getting around to this review has been bothering me for six months! Me and my two teenage daughters stayed here last summer. It was just awesome.

I was so impressed with the bottle of wine to greet us, the sweet and private little backyard, the quietness of the neighborhood, and the accessibility to everything, including the beach.

The cottage was the best part of our Santa Monica stay. I wouldn't recommend for more than 3 people, but it was perfect for us.
