The cottage offers a full kitchen with all utensils, glasses and cookware, as well as a large refrigerator, a gas range and oven, and new over-the-counter microwave stove. Ingenious use of space allows you to use the tiled counter top area as a computer/work space -- there is plenty of storage and shelves underneath -- and as a dining area, as well as an extra counter space for preparing your groceries from the nearby Santa Monica, Venice and Mar Vista farmer's markets.

Our queen-size bed features an exceptional Temper-Pedic mattress and a view out to the garden & fruit trees.We can, if necessary, also accommodate an additional child or adult with an electrically inflatable air bed along with all linens and pillow. (The air bed may be put up during the day to provide walk-around room.) The bathroom features a corner circular shower and heat lamp. And next to the bougainvillea in the backyard, there's a convenient washer-dryer cabana. There is plenty of curbside parking as well. Top-flight restaurants, cinemas and antique shops are 3-5 minutes away. And if you drive down our cross street (passing a very convenient Costco and an Albertson's supermarket), you'll arrive at the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice in less time than it takes to stroll around the block.

Beethoven's Bungalow met every need and beyond. Plus it was comfortable, quiet and on the same level as the garden and the BBQ so we enjoyed many meals there. Our neighbors were wonderful, bringing us lemons and mangoes and wine! So close to the beach...More

About the neighbourhood
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.
Getting around
We are super convenient to all freeways (just five minutes away), and the bus to the beach and to downtown Santa Monica as well as nearby Venice, Culver City and Marina del Rey stops right on our corner! The new Santa Monica subway Expo Line is just 6 minutes away, which reaches to all areas of Los Angeles as well as Pasadena, Hollywood, Long Beach, etc. Plus Uber and Lyft drivers are plentiful and inexpensive if you'd like to take a vacadtion from LA traffic!
