Even better than I had dreamed!

  • 5 of 5

I am almost reluctant to tell you how amazing Gordon and Atsuko's vacation home really is...I want to keep this gem to myself! Seriously, everything about this home is first class! The owners are friendly and welcoming, the bed is so comfortable you won't want to get up and the VIEW! I have been to LA quite a bit and have never experienced how the "rich and famous" live until now. Thank you again for sharing your lovely home and of course your sweet dog Jack! I hope to return soon.

Perfect paradise! Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Atsuko and Gordon were amazing people and their place is absolutely beautiful!! This is a super cute and very comfortable guest home with everything you need. The pool is very nice! We enjoyed a swim in salt water. You will not be disappointed in your stay here. We would never have the opportunity to drive through the hills of Bel Air and be so close to Beverly Hills. We loved staying here and hope to be back!! Stay here if you get the chance.

Between the pool and the mountainside there lies a place called Serenity

  • 5 of 5

The photos are beautiful, and accurate. Our stay exceeded our expectations, with regard to the comfort of the accommodations, the graciousness of our hosts, and the View, the View, the View! A photo I took of the view is now the wallpaper on my phone. A word of advice: when you plan your itinerary, make sure to schedule time to just sit on the porch, and drink it in. The location, too, is wonderful, close enough to everything you want to go to, yet away from the noise. And simply driving through the neighborhood is delightful. We are truly grateful to Atsuko and Gordon for the experience, the memories ... and the Serenity.

Best Los Angeles get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Atsuko & Gordon's cottage for the weekend occasion of my birthday / babymoon / meeting with a close friend stationed nearby for her work. We really enjoyed everything about our experience: the view overlooking the city, the garden, the pool, the comfortable space inside the cottage, and most of all the hospitality of our hosts. Gene's only wish was to have more time to talk with Gordon and play with Jack (their little Manchester terrier), but maybe next time. A day after arriving, we had a memorable breakfast at the nearby Chaumont in Beverley Hills; I highly recommend stopping there if you have the opportunity. We're genuinely thankful to Atsuko and Gordon for opening their cottage to us as guests: it was everything we hoped for and more.

Beautiful, quiet, clean.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage on a beautiful property with an absolutely amazing view. We were awakened one morning by an owl hooting and watched a hawk fly over while enjoying our morning coffee beside the pool. Can't wait to go back!

A Phenomenal Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I had high expectations when I booked this place, but even then I was not prepared for how special it really is. The owners are friendly and gracious, and they could not have made us feel more welcome. The cottage is quaint, comfortable, very private, and a unique place to stay in the LA area. Each morning we awoke to the sounds of birds and the scent of jasmine flowers, and in the evenings we watched the lights of the city twinkle while sipping wine on the private terrace. Even though the cottage feels like it's a world away, it's quick and easy to get to Beverly Hills, Westwood, I-405, Century City, and Sherman Oaks.

Different from the pictures in the listing, two chairs and a coffee table have been added to the space. They don't make it feel crowded and they are a nice touch. The coffee maker, electric tea kettle, and mini fridge were exactly what we needed for our morning drinks and to have a chilled bottle of wine in the evenings.

I could go on but I'd need to break out my thesaurus in order to come up with more superlatives. I'll simply say that the cottage and our stay were perfect and we're already looking forward to another visit.

Owner's Response: Todd, you are very complimentary and we pulled out our thesaurus to say we are thrilled to host guests who are as affable, amiable, courteous and sociable as you. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the garden as we find it an ambrosial delight. Or more simply put, we thank you so much for your kind review and hope you will return again soon. A&G
