"We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here, however long or short!"
"We had a wonderful stay at the Westwood cottage. The pictures do not do it justice. There is so much charm. I took photos of it thinking if I ever build a cottage I would want it just like this!
The communication with the owners was perfect. The parking was such a perk. It was also great having the Ralph's right across the street. Many thanks for a great weekend."

We moved our daughter to CA where she is starting her grad program at UCLA. The cottage is perfection and Gus, Valerie and Nicolette were the perfect hosts!
We loved having Ralph's right across the street and Santa Monica, UCLA, Getty Center are all in perfect proximity to the cottage.
We happened to be in LA during an extreme heat wave and loved being able to sit outside on their beautiful patio area in the evenings. We will definitely return again and recommend to family and friends, as well.

The Perfect Location
This property was just perfect. I actually rearranged my travels to stay here because it was not available on the day of my arrival.
We were originally looking at staying at the Courtyard Marriott a block away before I found this gem-a beautiful house for less money than a hotel.
The location is excellent. 15 minutes to the beach, 5 minutes to Beverly Hills, a 30 second walk to the grocery store, 1/2 mile drive to a giant mall (with another grocery store).
Yet the neighborhood is quiet, peaceful and made me forget I was in LA. I felt very safe here.
The owners live in the attached house and were wonderful every time we bumped into them, which was twice over a week-long stay.
The bed linens were some of the finest I have ever slept on. The bed was comfortable. All the necessary items one would need were available.
I told my husband that if we didn't have kids, it would be the perfect house to live in permanently.
If we ever come back to LA, this is where I want to stay. I would even consider driving the ridiculous distance and traffic from Disneyland just to stay here...it was that great.

Beautiful property, hosts warm, caring and thoughtful
Grateful for a wonderful visit at Westwood Cottage. Beautiful property, hosts warm, caring and thoughtful. What an amazingly wonderful accommodation, supporting our week long stay to celebrate daughters graduation from UCLA . We appreciate every respect of our VRBO choice: Charming home, creating the setting for feelings of space and tranquility, beautiful large garden and a "great homes" neighborhood, fun taking an evening stroll admiring home styles and landscaping, as well easy travel /distance to many L.A. attractions. Also this location is walking distance to groceries and shopping! Finally we deeply appreciate our hosts anticipation of our needs with a welcoming friendliness, and attention to detail making this not only a comfortable visit in every way but heartfelt! This home is centrally located with sounds of the city nearby, but somehow seemingly removed due to it's situation, set back and up from the street and surrounded by a "Zen" garden with canopy of trees and flowers.

A perfect escape in the middle of LA
I have stayed at Westwood Cottage for just over 2 months as a part of my sabbatical at UCLA, and my wife with two kids came over for several weeks to visit South Cal. From the day one, Valerie and Gustavo made us feel at home; we really felt that we have found new friends. Notably, you get as much help/engagements or privacy from them and you'd like to. The cottage has a distinct old English charm, with beamed high ceilings, nice fireplace, etc. The garden is remarkable, with mature trees, hummingbirds and even a cute rabbit Petunia. A few more touches, and it would fit well in the Disneyland. Overall, a great place to hang out and relax after a busy LA day. While there are many apartment/condo alternatives on VRBO, I did not see anything similar offered for rent, anywhere close. The location is just superb: 9 min drive/35 min walk to UCLA; 1min walk to Ralphs and 10 min walk to the huge shopping mall with restaurants, kids playroom, etc. You are essentially in the centre of everything, but don't feel that way after you step past the gate in the garden. The only thing that reminds where you are is the street noise (it is also felt inside the house, particularly in the morning). I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends.

Two Month Stay
“My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 2 months stay at Westwood Cottage in 2008. The delightful garden was a favourite place to have breakfast or lunch. We felt immediately at home and appreciated the owners friendly yet respectful help and always great advice on restaurants and local amenities.
The Westfield Century City Mall is a fabulous resource only 5 minutes stroll away with a plethora of great restaurants, multiplex cinema and shopping - a great convenience we took every advantage of! Not to mention Ralph's right across the street.
The wood features everywhere lend a gorgeous warmth and the house is tastefully decorated; the bed is super comfy. Staying for such a length of time we also took advantage of the additional weekly maid service which meant the place always felt fresh, clean and tidy.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here however long or short!"
