We stayed with Bob and Ahuva for the second time but in the cottage for the first time.WOW..... the room on our last trip was very good, but The Cottage is even better. Would NEVER stay anywhere else. The breakfast fruit parfait is worth the trip on it's own.

We found this place online whilst planning a two week road trip . It seemed too good to be true but it is everything you would want in a bed an breakfast . Bob and Ahuva are great hosts ... Very friendly and hospitable . It's not a hotel , it feels like a home . The breakfasts are great... More

We traveled to LA in June to visit our son who works there and fed up with the usual sterile anonymous, impersonal hotel experience decided to give B & B a go and chose the Garden Cottage. Our plan was to stay four days in LA, travel down the coast to San Diego for a while, then travel back to... More

I was passing though LA on the way to and from a meeting in Seattle and Bob and Ahuva managed to squeeze me in at the Garden Cottage. I have now stayed in every room and they are all as good as each other. The beds are wonderful ,allowing for a great sleep. The breakfast is fabulous. I wouldn't want... More

We booked the Garden View room in the house for three nights, and really wished we could've stayed longer. The room is wonderful, with a private bathroom and a huge closet to place your suitcases in. We were free to use the living room and the kitchen around the house, the front balcony was lovely to sit at after dark... More

This B&B is in a delightful neighborhood of LA, close to some very nice restaurants and shopping, but too far to walk to Hollywood! Bob and Ahuva are wonderful hosts, and they put on a fabulous breakfast made to order. I stayed in the Garden Terrace room which has its own balcony. I would definitely stay here again. I highly...

We are in the cottage, at the back of the property. The beds among the most comfortable ever. How it's decorated... beautiful rugs, thoughtful details, every amenity... I'm loving this place more each day. Bob and Ahuva couldn't be more accommodating. The location couldn't be better- walking distance to the Farmer's Market, The Grove, great little boutiques, restaurants. Lots of... More

We spent three nights here and it was wonderful! The room was spacious and charming. We enjoyed our breakfast of fresh, organic fruits, breads and eggs, on the terrace off our room. Although we were in the heart of lively LA, the Garden Cottage felt like a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle. The cottage is surrounded with... More

Staying at the Garden Cottage was certainly one of the highlights of our trip to LA. Bob and Ahuva were extremely friendly and did all they could to make us comfortable - and the breakfast was amazing! They helped us to navigate the city and recommended places to see, things to do, and restaurants. If we were to return to... More

This super little B and B certainly earns its five start rating. We stayed for three nights and loved it. Everything about it is generous, from the large comfortable beds, to the well stocked kitchen where you can make hot drinks at any time or make use of the crockery to put a meal together if you don't feel like...
