The cottage is wonderful and cozy. Much better than a big hotel with hundreds of people. We liked that it is more personal and private with your own pool for example. Michael and Laura are very kind and answer you every question if you have any. You can also get info about restaurants and such from them if you are...

Management response:

Thanks so much, Tilo, for the wonderful review. I really enjoyed having you and Sylvia and Kevin stay in the Contemporary Cottage. You are the quintessential guests! Please come back and visit the United States again. All the best to you and your wonderful family.

Loved the garden. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood but close to a variety of restaurants, grocery stores and beauty salons. Michael was accessible and helpful through out our stay. I found the cottage a relaxing place to unwind.

Management response:

Thank you, Saru! You and Joseph were perfect guests and it was a pleasure to meet you both. You're a lovely couple and I hope that our paths will cross again someday. All the best to you and your family!

About the neighbourhood
This cozy cottage is tucked away in the back of an historic property built in 1936, and has some Hollywood history attached to it. The original owners were famous movie stars named Joan Blondell and Dick Powell. At the height of their career, they bought this Sherman Oaks ranchette (at the time) as a 'country home' that originally included horse stables and a chicken coup. This special home has had only four owners in over 70 years. The current owners are the Palazzolo Family who have happily lived here for the past 20 years.

There are restaurants, food markets, and a large mall within walking distance, although a car is always recommended when visiting anywhere in Metropolitan Los Angeles. The Cottage is also centrally located to all major freeways, and there are numerous wo...

How to get there
Airport: LAX: 32.0 km

You can take a TAXI or UBER from LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) or BUR (Bob Hope-Burbank Airport) but since Los Angeles is so spread out, we highly recommend a rental car!
