Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. Everything was a described, a perfect location for local Brentwood (farmers market was fabulous) and a quick drive to Santa Monica. Beautiful weather added to our total enjoyment!

Santa Monica

This studio is Darling, Cozy, Comfortable and Affordable

  • 5 of 5

Over the years, I have stayed at several of Evelyn's cottages in Santa Monica and West Los Angeles. Each one has had her wonderful design and her personal thoughtful touches both inside and outside. This particular studio has a rare small private patio which is a very nice extension of the studio itself. The studio has lots of light but still feels private, comfortable bed and linens, soft fluffy towels, organized kitchenette and dining spot, and comes with a garage which provides the use of washer and dryer. Can't imagine there is a better studio or location out there. I hope it is available when I want to come back.

Perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cottage for a month to have time with our grandsons. The location was perfect for us and although the cottage is a studio, we were comfortable and did quite a bit of cooking. Evelyn is a gracious host and was very responsive to our needs. We look forward to staying there again when we visit our family.

Perfect accommodation in Santa Monica.

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely decorated, very clean. All necessary appliances available. Close to Santa Monica attractions, as well as to Los Angeles / Beverly Hills.

Recommendation: a corkscrew and a can opener would add even more value to the little kitchen. Otherwise - PERFECT!!! Thanks a lot and I hope to be your guest again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for this wonderful review. I had no idea the kitchen was missing the corkscrew and can opener, 2 vital items! These have now been added. Thanks so much to this reviewer to let me know.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Charming Cottage Guest House was the perfect place to stay while visiting friends and family for the week of Thanksgiving. We love staying in a neighborhood, and this fit the bill. This place is about 3 miles from Santa Monica Pier, but if the ocean isn't your focus (and it wasn't ours), then this is a great place. The Brentwood area is lovely, and within a 30 minute walk from the cottage we had lots of places to eat and shop. It is also fairly close to the 10 and the 405, making it easy to get to and from the airport. We spent much time in the Pacific Palisades area, which was extremely easy to access via this location. The "cottage" itself is not much bigger than a decent-sized hotel room, but it was perfect for our needs. We were out and about most days, and had access to Netflix and Amazon Prime shows when we wanted to relax late in the evening. We used the small kitchenette primarily to make breakfasts and a couple of lunches, and loved that we had a choice of either a traditional coffee pot or a French press. The queen sized bed was extremely comfortable and the shower most delightful. The weather cooperated and we were able to sit outside on the little patio a couple of times. We were pleased to have a garage for our rental car as well. The owner, Evelyn, provided excellent customer service: we were able to check in a bit earlier than the assigned time, and when the internet went out, she immediately made arrangements to get it fixed (within a day). We would definitely consider staying here again!
