About Cathy Arden

I am a native New Yorker who moved out to Santa Monica, CA in 2010. I'm a published writer, actress and Life Coach.

Cathy Arden purchased this house in 2011

Why Cathy Arden chose Los Angeles

When I was looking to buy a home in Santa Monica, I walked into this one and couldn't leave. I knew I had to live there. The house was like a fairy tale land. Travelers have dubbed it their secret garden! It feels and looks magical.

What makes this house unique

The private cottage is quiet and secluded and private with beautiful gardens surrounding it. Twinkling lights abound at night and it can easily be mistaken for the French countryside or Spain or Italy. I've lived in France and traveled extensively through Europe and this property has a European ambiance with the beautiful weather of southern California. Not to mention the Santa Monica ocean breezes!

A Cottage that lived up to its name!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quiet and comfortable place to relax and recuperate for a week, and this cottage was the perfect spot. Clean, with the calming sound from a little fountain and a marvelous bed and luxury linens, we could not have found a more comforable spot. The garden was private and lovely; if it had not rained, we would have enjoyed spending even more time in it than we did. It was an easy walk to the grocery store and restaurants, and as we had packed very light, the washer and dryer were very much appreciated! Cathy was a friendly and helpful, but non-intrusive host. We were very happy with our decision to rent this property.

A great cottage in Santa Monica

  • 4 of 5

Cathy's cottage was a lovely, homely cottage that had everything you needed and more, with a lovely outside area to sit and relax after a day out & about. Very neat, clean, tidy & bright with loads of charm. Cathy has gone to great lengths to ensure everything appliance, item & device is catered for. Cathy was also helpful in pointing is the right directions for our travels in Santa Monica. Thank you Cathy.

Serene cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an oasis in the midst of Santa Monica! The garden was a wonderful place to unwind and just read and relax. The bed in the bedroom was very, very comfortable and I slept really well. The futon pull out was comfy as well. Everything was clean and well organized as well as Cathy who was there to greet us! Thank you for everything Cathy!

Quaint Little Santa Monica Cottage

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my time staying here. It is a great location within Santa Monica, about a 15-minute walk from Main Street and the beach. The location and house is very safe.

Cathy met me upon arrival and walked me through the property. She was available by text if I needed her throughout my stay.

My only complaint (and it's minor) is that the whole cottage does not have A/C--just the bedroom does. You need to keep the door closed to keep that space cool and the house could get a little warm in the afternoon. Fortunately, we weren't there often midday.

All in all a good stay. I would recommend it!

Owner's Response: I do tell travelers that if bedroom door is left open, the air conditioner will cool the entire cottage as the space is not large. There is also a large, upright state of the art cooling fan in the main room to assist with cooling when necessary. Given it's Santa Monica, which is 10-15 degrees cooler than anywhere else in LA due to the ocean breezes, the air conditioner is most often unnecessary.
