Cutest cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our rental was perfect! Starting with Evelyn who was fantastic and let us checkout later since we had an evening flight. I could not have been more thankful.The location is perfect, everything you need is a walk away...Great restaurants, Pavillions, Whole foods etc...Loved the area. The cottage is so cute and comfortable. When we walked in, I felt so at home.It was like a Pottery Barn catalog! There is everything you need, Evelyn thought of everything! We will definitely be back next year! I already recommended to friends who will be renting it in the fall. It was a great stay in Evelyn's adorable cottage!

Beautiful cottage in a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best HomeAway experiences my husband and I have had. The cottage was beautifully appointed, with a charm that made it a joy to stay in. Very comfortable furnishings, a very sweet kitchen, and a great layout all contributed to the sense that we truly had a home away from home. The landscaping around the cottages was lovely and added to the feeling that we were in more than just a rental. The convenience of being so close to the shops and restaurants on Montana made a car all but unnecessary. We enjoy walking, so we had some lovely walks down to the ocean and even walked over to the Third Street promenade. In fact, next time we'll skip the rental car and Uber when we need to leave the neighborhood. The landlord was responsive, easy to deal with, and provided very helpful information online when we checked in. I would recommend this cottage without reservation and hope it's available the next time we are in Santa Monica.

Charming, quaint, clean, comfortable, excellently located with allocated parking, in other words FAB

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is is one of several on the corner of Montana and cross street. Through a country gate and pathway, it has a wonderfully retro exterior. Interior is a fabulous mix of modern living and original 50's features. One detail that impressed me was the softness of the bed linen. You may laugh at me, but it made a really big impression as it was like sleeping in a giant marshmallow! Another bonus point is that there is allocated parking out back, at no extra cost and during warmer months, small garden space at the side of the cottage, a great spot for your morning coffee. I often visit Santa Monica and as Montana is one of my favourite streets, the cottage is more than ideally located as you have everything on Montana (Whole Foods, Pinkberry, clothes stores, beauty salons etc) - essentially you don't need to travel anywhere other than on foot.

I also wish to add that Evelyn, who owns/manages the cottage, was super accommodating (in that I had to to & fro with several date changes) and also responded very promptly with any query.

Highly recommended :)

Great location in Santa Monica

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was lovely and well situated with access to every possible need. There is even a Dry Bar around the corner. Loved the access. The space was well kept and safe and I really enjoyed the fireplace since I hit LA during a cold snap arriving late at night and there was no heat or lights on. I actually slept on the sofa two nights just to be close to the warmth.

My cottage was situated right on the street, which was fine and very convenient the first day. I would have actually requested that for another visit. But, during my stay, one full day was completely taken by outdoor landscape workers that started early morning and worked until dark cutting down every possible hedge and trimming all of the walls surrounding my unit and others. This basically made the day extremely difficult as even the shower has a window and the crews were surrounding the house. The privacy was gone and the buzzing so loud that I had to leave to make business calls. Much to my disappointment, when I returned from one of those calls, the entire hedge surrounding what was promoted as a private patio had been completely buzzed down to the ground. Basically, leaving the option of sitting outside at street level with no barrier or privacy. It really did take away from the experience since I could not enjoy outside with a constant stream of people in clear, extremely close view/contact. I do understand that this kind of maintenance has to be done, but I did state my needs for quiet work time and desire for outdoor space when inquiring about a reservation. I also made this reservation very last minute. It would have been very easy for the renter to have let me know the situation about the landscaping round the clock and the hedge removal during my stay. This is my first experience that hasn't been exceptional with using VRBO, and I feel that if I had been informed or visited on a different time (since I am in LA multiple times a year) that the cottage would have been perfect. But, I feel that this particular stay was a let down and quite honestly, unfair to me as a guest based on the rate and representation.

Owner's Response: I have sincerely offered my apologies for the disturbance with the landscaping. I did not realize my gardener had begun the removal and replacing of the hedges and some ornamental trees. The grounds looked beautiful when I went to check on them the day this renter checked out. I wish I had been aware and offered my renter an apology and compensation for this inconvenience, but the renter didn't contact me so I was unaware. There is heating in the cottage, I guess this renter didn't notice the wall unit that heats the whole cottage in a matter of minutes, but glad she enjoyed the cozy fireplace. I'm glad also that this renter sees the charm and great location as she is planning on staying with me in the future.
