What makes this cottage unique

Because we do not accept smokers we have a clean, fresh smelling cottage! No pets allowed, so no pet hair for those with allergies. Request down-free bedding if you wish. New shower liner re-placed for each guest visit.

This property was exactly as described, private and comfortable. We stayed for 2 weeks and will definitely stay again next time we are in LA visiting our daughter. Ellen is a good host.

So quiet in LA!

  • 4 of 5

This was a fabulous cottage. It was so quiet and it allowed us a time to really relax. Word of advice, read the labels that Ellen has written all over the cottage. I ran the water in the shower for a while and thought it would never heat up. But once it did, watch out, it is really hot. And somehow I missed that there wasn't a stove in the cottage. There was a microwave and a full size fridge. But we used the hot pot and angel hair pasta was just delicious. There is also a toaster oven, which for a toast lover, was perfect.

For a couple this was perfect. It does not have room for more than 2 people who really don't mind small spaces.

Thanks Ellen for posting your cottage for rent.

Can't find a better value

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is cute, comfortable and VERY clean. The bed is very comfortable, the linens luxurious. Everything you need is at hand, and the price is really the best in the area. You can pay a lot more and not get the privacy and quiet that you get here. The owners are excellent people and available if you need them, but let you have all the privacy you need, too. Located in a quiet, lush residential area great for nice walks.

Great value for the cost

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We loved it. It was private, and cozy. The bed was quite comfortable. Bill and Ellen respected our privacy but made themselves available if we needed anything. It was a great experience. We hope to visit again in the future. I would highly recommend this property.

Cozy clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Sweet cottage and gardenias on approach on a pretty street very convenient walk to Taluca Lake coffee shops and other quaint shops. Also near park with one mile jogging loop. Cottage is small but perfect. Enjoyed drinking coffee out on patio. Ellen is a most gracious hostess.

Perfect Hosts, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Overall outstanding - I could not have stayed in a better place for 2 weeks for this value. My favorite thing was being in a real neighborhood, very friendly, quiet. The owners are so pleasant and accommodating, they listen and ensure you are satisfied. The cottage is cozy, clean, totally private entry, and has all the essentials. Even your own patio and orange tree! Location is so convenient - 15 mins to downtown Burbank, 20 mins to Pasadena, only about 30 to Venice. The immediate area has all the necessary restaurants, shops, etc. you will need. You can even easily get the subway to downtown LA or even Pasadena for $5 a day!

I highly recommend this cottage and will stay there if I am out there again.
