Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Los Angeles - Westhollywoodcottage.com

3 bedrooms, 2 Full bathrooms, sleeps 8

This hip and charming renovated 1920's Craftsman home is a piece of Americana and an excellent example of historical California architecture. The LA Times recently called it 'Caliifornia Craftsman meets stunning contemporary living'. This ultra private home is in the heart of a desirable WeHo neighborhood. It is the perfect setting for business and leisure travelers alike. Located just walking distance to the bustling shops, cafes, restaurants and nightlife found along WeHo's trendy Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Blvd. It is also just a short cab ride away from the area's many glamorous locations such as Rodeo Drive, the famous Sunset Strip and Hollywood Bvld, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Mann's Chinese Theater and so much more.

Inside the Cottage: The home has recently undergone complete renovations and now boasts green features and an open floor plan. It is well appointed and stylishly furnished. Natural light and beautiful bamboo floors flow throughout the home. The fully stocked kitchen is open and built for entertaining. It boasts marble counter tops, high-end appliances and breakfast bar.

The centerpiece of the living room is a glass-filled fireplace flanked by original built-in bookcases. The wide entryway from the living room reveals the open dining area and kitchen. Large picture windows allow in natural light and a garden views.

All bedrooms come complete with king or queen size beds, flat-screens, luxurious linens and ceiling fans. The large master bath includes an open shower along with separate euro-style vanity area with sink, a perfect dressing area.

The Exterior: A private automated front gate closes the property off from the outside world. The ground's green and lush landscape flows from the front to back yards where it is met with a large canopy of trees and plenty of space for entertaining. The perimeter of the cottage is surrounded by a fence and shrubs for ultimate privacy. Enjoy the California sun or beautiful night sky in the 6-person hot tub.

Very private, clean , and Amazing location !!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable house was perfect for our friends weekend getaway in LA! 3 couples shared the house for 3 nights. There was plenty of space, bathrooms were great, and the backyard made for a great BBQ! The neighborhood is perfect as well. Walking distance to Whole Foods and liquor stores :) And right in the middle of all the WeHo restaurants, bars, etc. The house was fully stocked with clean towels, all kitchen supplies and extra paper towels/toilet paper. Shaun's property manager Javier was extremely helpful and attentive throughout the weekend. Answered all of our texts/calls promptly and even paid us a visit upon request (we needed help with the backyard lights). The house was very clean - a cleaning crew comes right before. And felt very secure - the lock system is great. Would definitely rent from Shaun again!

Great for a family that wants to be in the middle of the action.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a great stay in the cottage. The location was perfect- we walked to Melrose and The Grove and down Fairfax. We had easy access to all of the action and still the house was very quiet and private. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped and the place was very clean. The outdoor space was a bonus, a great place to lounge with a book and for the kids to run around. The photos were accurate, we got what we expected and more.

Cottage that you can walk everywhere to and from

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming place. Every detail was authentic and truly old California. Modern upgrades give you the feel of a hotel with the privacy one would want in a private residence. Plenty of room for the 4 of us and could have had 2 more easily. I will be back to this lovely cottage .

Excellent, Private, immaculate... exactly as advertised !

  • 5 of 5

Lovely Private house.. Nicely furnished Great location Easy reach to everywhere...Nice neighborhood..house felt safe and secure....Host provided nice extras...flowers, water, and was very impressed with all bathrooms having L'Occitane Bath/shower products for our use. We are a Family of 4 adults and a toddler...Very happy that the house was child friendly. The Kitchen was fully equipped and pantry was full of cooking essentials, so putting together a delicious meal was easy after a quick trip to the Whole Foods Market right up the street. Our beds were comfortable and made-up with nice cotton bedding. There was plenty of parking and having a washer and dryer on site was an added bonus. We will for sure be coming back and using this company. Shaun and Robert we the best! So easy to work with and professional.
