About James Ulmer

Entertainment journalist, author and filmmaker. Harvard College graduate. Passions include film, piano, literature (Shakespeare especially), Italy and travel. Speaker of English, Italian, some French and German.

James Ulmer purchased this cottage in 2001

Why James Ulmer chose Los Angeles area

A TERRIFIC AREA where the traffic and parking is not nearly as congested and stressful as at the beach traffic yet is only minutes away from the ocean. We're also right amongst the cafes, cinemas, boutiques and shopping of the wonderful West side. A great location in what is already a world-class 'destination location.' Lovely backyard and patio, too!

What makes this cottage unique

Complementary use of our 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. During your home orientation when you arrive, James can also serve as your 'virtual concierge' to help you plan your stay in LA.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear James, we just arrived at home a few days ago and really enjoyed our holiday trip.

We had a truly pleasant stay at the Beethoven Bungalow and loved coming "home"

into your cozy house after spending exciting days in Los Angeles. Thanks a

lot - also for always having good answers to our questions.

Blissful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted by this charming Cottage, like something out of a storybook.  James was so helpful and always available for us, and best of all we could bike to the beach area which is just five minutes away. Though the beach area traffic gets very busy in the Santa Monica area, parking at the Cottage is easy and we could walk to a couple of very popular eateries, we especially like the Pitfire grill just two blocks away. Early evenings we enjoyed sitting out on the patio that faces a lovely orange tree and counting the hummingbirds on the fountain! Can’t recommend this place enough and after dreading our search through what seemed endless online properties, we were SO glad to discover this total gem. For sure we will be returning this coming summer, thank you James!

Cute place, great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute little place and very cozy. James was very nice and accommodating. I would recommend this to anyone. We used the free bikes, which was great to have, but they are old and the gears didn't work. That's the only reason for the 4 out of 5 stars.

GREAT Spot

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy to have chosen this property! James met us there when we arrived and gave us a load down of the great local places. He was thorough and super nice! My husband and I were there for a long weekend visiting my best friend for her birthday.

The bikes were a HUGE plus which we rode all day on Saturday on the beach!

The description of the cottage is on point and accurate. Great location and perfect for just 2 people. Very clean and uniquely decorated. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you James!

LAX (Los Angeles Int'l Airport)
Car: not necessary

HOURS OF FUN IS JUST MINUTES AWAY! We’re located on a treed residential street on the fabulous West side of Los Angeles, in the area of Mar Vista where where Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey and Culver City all meet...

From our lovely 2-bedroom home it's just 5 minutes to the freeways, 6 minutes to the famous Venice Beach and Venice Canals, and 8 minutes to the Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica promenade.

Top-flight restaurants, cinemas, supermarkets, golf course, parks and the Abbott Kinney antique shops are only 4-minutes away.

And if you drive down our cross street (passing a convenient supermarket and Costco shopping center) you'll arrive at the fabulous beaches of Santa Monica and Venice in less time than it takes to stroll around the block.
