Just 5 minutes from the beach, this delightful studio Cottage guesthouse is ideal for 2 people and is the perfect vacation hideaway (a third can stay using our comfy electrically inflatable air mattress). French doors open out to our private patio with a view of our beautiful backyard lemon and orange trees framing our Italian fountains (a hit with the hummingbirds!) Plenty of cafes are just a two-minute walk from your door, We offer FREE BIKES & the beach bus stops right on our corner.

The space
Studio Cottage w/ queen-size bed & electric air mattress, private bathroom w/ shower, sleeps 2-3. HDTV, WiFi ,DVD /CD, phone, air mattress, curbside parking. Private patio & gardens. Washer/Dryer & FREE BIKES. Close to all cafes, shops & beach bus. We also can send you the link to our Cottage video!

Our queen-size bed features an exceptional Temper-Pedic mattress and a view out to the backyard garden & fruit trees. We also have an electrically-inflatable air mattress for a third guest, if needed. The bathroom features a new corner circular shower and heat lamp. And next to the bougainvillea in the backyard, there's a convenient washer-dryer cabana. Plenty of curbside parking, too!

Complementary use of bikes to ride to the beach or explore the neighborhood -- or simply take the beach bus on the corner. Peaceful and quiet backyard terra-cotta patio (with charcoal BBQ) framed by bougainvillea and fountains looking out onto our lovely backyard garden and fruit trees. Complementary high-speed (6 megabyte) internet & Wi-Fi & cable HDTV.

We can be as helpful and available, or as invisible as you prefer. If you wish James can give you an orientation when you arrive and can serve as your 'virtual concierge' to help you plan your stay in LA.

There's a great bakery and cafe is just around the corner, a fabulous & popular Italian restaurant down the street and over 25 cafes are in easy walking distance of the Cottage. This is terrific area where the traffic and parking is not nearly as congested and stressful as rentals directly on the beach, yet is only minutes away from the ocean. A great location in what is already a world-class 'destination location.'

The bus to the beach stops right on our corner. We also offer FREE BIKES to our guests. And there's curbside parking for your car.

No need to worry about keys -- we have keypads on all our doors, so you just have to punch in a code.

Guest access
You will have exclusive access to our Beethoven's Cottage and delightful outdoor patio, which looks out to our backyard gardens, with lemon and orange trees.

Other things to note
Parking for Beethoven's Cottage is curbside on our quiet residential street. The main driveway is reserved for the main house but may be used by Cottage guests for unloading and loading guests, groceries, etc. whenever needed.
