Beethoven's Bungalow met every need and beyond. Plus it was comfortable, quiet and on the same level as the garden and the BBQ so we enjoyed many meals there. Our neighbors were wonderful, bringing us lemons and mangoes and wine! So close to the beach...More

About the neighbourhood
HOURS OF FUN IS JUST MINUTES AWAY! We’re located on a treed residential street in a family-friendly neighborhood near the southern tip of Santa Monica.
From our lovely Cottage 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.
Getting around
We are super convenient to all freeways (just five minutes away), and the bus to the beach and to downtown Santa Monica as well as nearby Venice, Culver City and Marina del Rey stops right on our corner! The new Santa Monica subway Expo Line is just 6 minutes away, which reaches to all areas of Los Angeles as well as Pasadena, Hollywood, Long Beach, etc. Plus Uber and Lyft drivers are plentiful and inexpensive if you'd like to take a vacadtion from LA traffic!

We are just 20 minutes from LAX airport, ad the bus to the beach and to downtown Santa Monica and Venice stops right on our corner! If you happen to arrive early on your check-in day, there are wonderful cafes and boutiques within easy walking distance of the house, and you can of course drop off luggage if need be. Parking for the Cottage gueshouse is curbside next to our driveway, (the driveway is reserved for the main house), but guests can always use the driveway to load and unload luggage, shopping, etc.
