Garden Guest Cottage

Perfect Spot for a Santa Monica Visit

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fun and relaxing weekend here recently, and found the cottage to be charming and perfect for our needs. Everything was comfortable and clean. The garden patio is exquisite, the blooming flowers attracting many birds. We watched a female rufous hummingbird build her nest -- she was quite inquisitive about us and let us get quite close while we enjoyed our morning coffee. The location was perfect, with great dining and shopping options within walking distance or a short drive, but on a quiet residential street. We highly recommend Locando Portofino if you are looking for Italian fine dining.
We didn't walk to the beach but could have easily. Also, getting to the airport is a breeze, and to UCLA and PCH as well. Will stay here again next time if it's available. Thank you Elisabeth!

Perfect Garden Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week in Santa Monica, staying at this perfect garden cottage! The experience of double French doors opening out onto a secluded spacious garden patio was enchanting! While thoroughly enjoying this quiet private spot, it was hard to believe that terrific restaurants and shops were literally steps away.

My husband was thrilled with his early morning walks to the beach--and the location was perfect for us visiting family in the area.

I found the cottage to be immaculate and extremely comfortable and well designed. Amenities were exactly as described. The visitors permit made parking on the residential street very convenient. Although almost everything you would need is within walking distance. The cottage was just ideal for the two of us!

We were both so pleased that we book a 10 day Thanksgiving stay with Elisabeth before leaving!

Of course, highly recommended!

We Fell in Love

We were looking for an alternative to yet another hotel stay. We enjoyed this alternative so much. Woke up each morning, opened the two sets of French doors, had coffee in the beautiful garden, watched the hummingbirds and grilled some of the nights. Quiet, convenient, clean...close to everything.

Looking forward to a return visit next year.

Perfect place to stay in Santa Monica

We stayed at the guest cottage during february 2013 with our 11 months old son. The owner was so helpful and helped us out and arranged a baby crib, great! Thanks E!

The guest cottage is clean, quiet and you have access to the cosy garden outside. Parking with a visitor permit on the street was perfect and easy. The area has great restaurants, cafes, a grocery store and so much more just a minute walking from the garden cottage. The area is very safe and nice and only 1 km to the beach was something that really added value.

We highly recommend staying at this garden cottage!

Very clean, lovely place in a great location

  • 5 of 5
This is a quiet very clean guest cottage in a nice neighborhood off Montana. The owner, elizabeth, is a lovely woman. The back area where the cottage is located is a beautiful garden with an area to sit outside. The bed is very comfortable. The cooking arrangements were sufficient for me but not sufficient for a major preparation like a thanksgiving dinner. Bathroom small but clean. I loved how the french doors opened up to bring in the beautiful weather. I had trouble with the wifi but just activated my hotspot on my Verizon Smartphone for a dollar a day and it worked perfectly. The electrical seemed fine but there weren't an abundance of outlets so I had to time the charging of my laptop, iPad, and cell phone appropriately. If my spoiled husband had been there with all his gizmos, we would have been competing. I loved the ability to be outside with complete privacy. Parking with the onstreet permit was no problem but you have to pay attention to the street cleaning times or you will get a ticket. Ouch. There is a natural foods restaurant right out the back door for super breakfasts and smoothies. Shopping, and good restaurants nearby.
