Small cottage. Not as well ckean as it could have been. Internet conked out after one day. I needed a working internet so we cut our time two days short. Not the owners fault. Could not walk on the backyard grass which limited the use of the outdoor patio. Al Acuna

Though the beach area traffic gets very busy in the Santa Monica area, parking at the Cottage is easy and...

About the neighborhood
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.
