This delightful, totally renovated & furnished studio guest cottage is perfect as a quiet vacation hideaway or a relaxing retreat if you plan to stay longer. Best for a single guest or a couple, our cozy, light-filled cottage is crowned by skylights and features French doors opening onto a charming backyard patio and garden with lemon and orange trees. We're situated on a treed, residential street only one mile from the ocean in beautiful Mar Vista, right next to Santa Monica and Marina del Rey.
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.
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 Venice and Mar Vista farmer's markets.
The apartment comes with cable TV (including all premium movie channels and HBO), WiFi and broadband DSL and a land line phone, all included in the rent, as well as a CD player with CD library.
The studio's queen-size bed features an exceptional Temper-Pedic mattress that offers a superior sleep, and a view looking out through the French patio doors onto the backyard and its orange, lemon and avocado trees. The bathroom features a brand new corner circular shower and heat lamp. And next to the bougainvillea in the backyard, there's a convenient washer-dryer cabana which is shared with the main house's tenants next door.
There's non-restricted street parking and, of course, all utilities are included in the rent.
Our "Beethoven's Bungalow" is a true gem in the heart of L.A.'s west side, and is available beginning the middle of August '08 for either short-term (minimum four nights) or long-term stays.
