Renovated 1BR Culver City Cottage w/Pool & Garden - The Ultimate Escape!
Come and relax in this cozy, well-decorated, and recently renovated guest cottage. This lovely home is situated in a convenient, centrally located area that is a perfect home-base for folks looking to explore LA, see the sites and have a welcoming, comfortable, quiet place to come back to.
The 400 sq. ft. space sits nestled in a relaxed plant-rich garden beside a sparkling, non-chlorinated and chemical-free pool. The open floor plan is light and bright with many windows, old Victorian stained glass and a glass paneled french door. Guests will enjoy preparing meals in the well-stocked kitchen with a large breakfast bar. There is a full-size tiled bathroom with tub and rain showerhead -- complete with 2 cozy bath robes for lounging! There's also a comfortable sitting area for 2, and a large antique desk to work on. High-speed internet and a mounted flat screen TV with cable and Netflix are also provided. There is a washer and dryer available for use in the owner's unit.
The backyard is sweet and welcoming. Lounge chairs by the pool provide a great place to work on that tan and enjoy the beautiful California sunshine! The pool is not heated, but whether you jump off the diving board or just dip a foot, it is very refreshing. The serene patio area is cozy, surrounded by greenery, a trickling fountain and a seriously comfortable daybed with soft bedding and lots of pillows. It's a perfect place to read a book, take a nap or just relax. You will also find a large BBQ grill, picnic table with benches, a portable fire pit and additional seating areas in the garden.
The area is safe and there is always plenty of parking in front of the house. We have several parks close by. Tennis, paddle tennis and basketball courts are freely available in Vets Park, only a few blocks away -- enjoy a game of tennis with complementary rackets for your use. Three different golf courses lie within 4 miles from the cottage. A set of golf clubs is available for use while you're here, just ask! Several restaurants, convenience stores and a gas station are within a couple blocks of the house. Public transportation is also located within just 2 blocks of the house for easy access to all the best sights.
A longer stroll will take you to Sony/MGM Studios, Culver City, Culver Studios, and other exciting nearby attractions. Follow in the steps of King Kong and Rhett Butler, and stay in this lovely cottage for your next visit to California!

Charming on the inside and very clean. But not the place for a light sleeper because the pool filter runs 24/7. I barely got a wink of sleep for the five nights I was there. Insult to injury the pool isn't heated! For a non-smoking no-pet accomodation the hostess smokes and there are a dog and at least two cats roaming the property! There's a lot going on at this property reminded me of a tag sale.
Thank you for providing your candid feedback regarding your stay! We are sincerely sorry to hear the experience did not meet your expectations as many other travelers have had a positive experience. We do not advertise the pool as heated and note it in the listing though we apologize for any inconvenience this caused. We wish you the best of luck in your future travels! -The Evolve Team

This sweet little cottage is in a quiet shaded neighborhood yet close to everything of interest in la. I just sat outside with a kitty in my lap and a glass of wine enjoying the garden with all the flowers in bloom. I will return to this cottage whenever I'm in la as it is so calming and serene. Monika should be very proud of her endeavors in bringing a safe place for travelers to relax in Los angeles. She is knowledgeable, helpful, and welcoming. We loved this place!!!

Close to lax, this place is as relaxing as one can hope for. The owner is very welcoming and very respectful of privacy. The pool is great, the place is new and functional. Quiet, clean, fresh air. Everything was superb. If we were to return to la, this would be our first choice - again.
Thank you so much for submitting a review! We are so happy to hear that you had such a great stay and hope you are able to come back again soon. Cheers!
