    Additional Location Information
    HOURS OF FUN IS JUST MINUTES AWAY! We’re located on a treed residential street in a family-friendly neighborhood near the southern tip of Santa Monica.
    From our lovely Cottage it's just 5 minutes to the freeways, 6 minutes to the famous Venice Beach and Venice Canals, and 8 minutes to the Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica promenade.
    Top-flight restaurants, cinemas, supermarkets, golf course, parks and the Abbott Kinney antique shops are only 4-minutes away.
    And if you drive down our cross street (passing a convenient supermarket and Costco shopping center) you'll arrive at the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice in less time than it takes to stroll around the block.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was a cheaper option than hotels in Santa Monica. We had a car so were able to drive to SM in 5 minutes. Very close to Venice beach as well. There was plenty of room here, curbside parking, laundry facilities, kitchenette with all appliances you'll need. James also gave us a complimentary bottle... more
