“Gracious outdoor and indoor spaces,quiet, private, very clean ,well equipped kitchen.”

We arrived late at nite and had no trouble letting ourselves in. The unit was spotless and so well equipped with bedding, heat, fan ,tv,and any kitchen item needed to work with frig, toaster oven, and microwave. The private outdoor space outside the French doors was quiet and safe. The bed was firm and bedding very nice. The neighborhood was nice for a morning stroll. There were not restaurants or museums in walking distance that we found, but it was easy to access interstates and major streets .

Thank you to my guests for your wonderful reviews! I'm so sorry that I didn't meet Sarah due to a very late check-in but I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the guesthouse. It's right in the center of everything and if we'd spoken I would have mentioned that we have a highly-rated Mexican restaurant and Korean restaurant in short walking distance as well as a Starbucks right on the corner of our block (breakfast place is a bit farther walk). I hope next time we'll have a chance to meet!

“Loved the place and would stay again.”

The place is unique and the patio area is lovely. The owner James is such a nice gentleman and we loved chatting with him when he was watering the plants. The cottage is very homey and enjoyed coffee on the patio in the morning while watching all the hummingbirds.
The cottage is close to a bus route that goes directly to Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier. We would stay there again.

“A Beautiful Space”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We loved how beautiful Shelley's cottage and garden is, and how private it is (you have your own little driveway!). The place is comfortable, spotless, and meticulously put together in shades of green and gray (even the kitchen liquid soap fit the color scheme). The attention to detail carries over to Shelley's breakfast tray (beautifully arranged cheeses, fruits, yoghurt, homemade breads and jam, juices, etc.). When Shelley found out we preferred soymilk with our morning coffee, she even gave us a small pitcher of it. We definitely enjoyed morning coffee in the garden, listening to the fountains, and watching a hummingbird flit among the flowers. And our son enjoyed watching the World Cup on Univision! Thanks, Shelley!

Liked best: The feeling of having our own private cottage and garden tucked away in the busyness of LA.

Thank you for your lovely review. As you mentioned, I am new to this website but have been hosting for 3 years on another site and have more than 80 fabulously positive reviews on that site (guests enjoy the garden, and that the guesthouse is so clean). I do usually keep a few small samples of my beadwork in a corner on a dresser because guests sometimes like to bring back souvenirs - in three years no one has ever taken one - I've never had that kind of guest- but I will certainly consider your suggestion.
