Fabulous location. Close to great eateries like Milo and Olive (a frequented restaurant on our trip) and supermarket, Bristol Farms (if a little on the expensive side), also great for access to the 405 freeway, Brentwood and downtown Santa Monica. Jamie and Greg were friendly and helpful. They kept us well supplied with clean towels and such. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit LA. The only improvement I could suggest would be to have at least one wall hook in the bathroom to hang your clean clothes, etc. My friend and I had the best time in LA- our first time in California. The main reason for our trip was a set visit to NCIS LA at Paramount Pictures studios, which was epic! I even made a new friend in the director of photography. We also managed to get tickets to see James Corden on the Late Late Show during our second week. We were busy the whole time- hiking to the Hollywood sign, driving the PCH to Sanata Barbara harbour, visiting The Getty centre, the holocaust museum, The Grove farmer's market(highly recommend) and a visit to Fonuts on 3rd Street. My goodness those baked donuts were amazing! Can't stop thinking about them! Yum! Best holiday ever and was pleased that I picked La Casita as a base during our time here. The reviews on this place helped me make a more informed decision whether to book or not. I say go for it!!!

Most of what we felt about the property has been said in previous reviews and we would endorse them all. The cottage is homely and extremely comfortable and it became a welcome haven during a very hot and busy visit to LA. The garden’s a delight to sit in. We saw humming birds and parrots in the garden and ate the delicious tomatoes which one of our little family members (2 ½ years old) took pleasure in picking when he visited. We were also pleased that there were toys to entertain our little visitor who delighted in the building blocks. The only thing we would suggest is that visitors buy provisions before arriving as there was nothing in the cupboard when we arrived rather late and very tired. Luckily we had family close by who could help. Apart from that minor suggestion we would highly recommend the bungalow and certainly plan on staying again when we next visit LA.
