Santa Monica offers a unique active beach lifestyle in an atmosphere of trendy retail shops and great restaurants. The property provides the same type of atmosphere that inspired the Beach Boys to sing in the 1960s.

The Cottage building permit was issued in 1898. Representative of massed-plan vernacular cottages with hipped roofs, this building type and style lined Ocean Avenue at the turn of the Century. Today, it is the only surviving single-family dwelling of this type along Ocean Avenue.

Location! The Cottage has the unique characteristic of being the only one of its kind in Santa Monica!

Privacy & Flexibility: 2 car parking in the rear of property. Bikes with bike rack. You can walk, bike or drive conveniently throughout Santa Monica.

HIDDEN GEM IN SANTA MONICA: THE COTTAGE BED & BREAKFAST

Hidden Gem in Santa Monica: The Cottage Bed & Breakfast
  • 5 out of 5
I can't imagine a more tranquil and idyllic place to vacation in Los Angeles than at this most wonderful beachfront haven in Santa Monica. This historical property which has been tastefully and impeccably restored - is full of charm. It's truly a one-of-a-kind experience where my wife and I enjoyed sitting on the veranda and watching the sailboats in the ocean pass by as seagulls soared above. We soaked up the sunshine every day and listened to the light rustling of the palm trees which lined Ocean avenue - mere footsteps from the soft sandy beaches where we went swimming every morning. I've never felt more rested and relaxed before in my life! In the few days we spent at the cottage, I felt as if I had taken a much needed month long vacation! I'd come back here in a heartbeat. The Cottage Bed & Breakfast is the first and only B&B in Santa Monica, but it is also the perfect alternative to the run of the mill hotel chains nearby which only offer generic hospitality for the masses. I felt like a local while staying at the Cottage and the kitchen was fantastic too - we cooked every night while watching the sunset and enjoying a nice bottle of wine. The accommodations of this place are just what the doctor ordered! Kudos to the family that restored this special slice of heaven! -Larry

GREAT VIEWS, GREAT AMMENITIES, GREAT EVERYTHING

  • 5 out of 5
Once a year my family rents a home in California for a week. Typically we've rented in Manhattan Beach or Malibu, but decided to try Santa Monica after stumbling across this property and am very pleased we did.

The location is perfect. The front door opens onto the beach and you're only a short walk to the heart of Main Street. While central to almost everything, you're also not too close to the tourist-ridden 3rd street, allowing you to enjoy serenity of the incoming waves.

The amenities are second to none. The house has been recently renovated and no expense was spared. The owners were extremely friendly and committed to ensuring are vacation was everything we wanted it to be.
