Heart Cottage is a lovely, cozy, clean hideaway that is a walk to beach and Santa Monica. Colette is a great host. Beds are extremely comfortable. The entire place was spotless. We had a wonderful time.

We had a great stay here. The house was clean and comfortable. The yard was a nice place for us pasty Oregonians to drink coffee and soak up some sun in the morning. The beach is close and lovely. Colette was helpful and easy to reach. Highly recommended.

Quaint House & Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic visit to Heart House the 3rd week of January. The set up is very cool...loved the dining "booth" for cozy meals, gas fireplace was nice for use on chilly mornings. It was great to have (2) full

baths! Didn't have time to really enjoy the outdoor room, but it was a great space. Did make some time for the hot tub....heavenly!! Highly recommend...

clean, comfortable, & cozy!!

Charming, welcoming and well-maintained

  • 5 of 5

Great location! My husband and I stayed at Heart House in December 2016 while we were visiting our son who lives north of Culver City. We had a wonderful stay. Colette greeted us upon our arrival and made sure we were comfortable. She also checked in again a few days later. She was very helpful one morning when the internet wasn’t working. She responded to my text immediately and all that was needed a quick power down and restart. Worked fine otherwise. The house was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. We used the fireplace every morning and the hot tub every evening. It's close to the beach, only a few blocks which made it easy to go for walks. Plenty of linens and towels and the bed was very comfortable. We also loved the privacy of the fenced-in yard. Will consider staying again! Thanks for everything!

Perfect location , adorable home!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Colette were very helpful getting us settled and the house was wonderful.

They even had a neighbor lend us a gas canister when the BBQ ran out . The hot tub was fabulous and the kitchen well stocked with coffee and tea and spices and oils .

The house has great linens and many fabulous lush blankets and throw pillows . The fireplace was also perfect and we played ping pong daily .

A great beach get away !

Our time at The Heart House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The house was very comfortable. We used the fireplace every morning as well as the hot tub, which was very clean and enjoyable. We also liked the private fenced yard and the proximity to the beach was only a few blocks. We will definitely stay again if we return to Santa Monica. Thanks

Rustic Canyon Park is just a brisk walk or 2 minute drive away. This lovely neighborhood park boasts a shaded playground, tennis courts, basketball, baseball and a local outdoor pool. Behind the bungalow is shady, secluded streets and winding trails for hikers. Also, Temescal Gateway Park, just a 4 minute ride from your bungalow is nestled in a quiet canyon and is bordered by the majestic Santa Monica Mountains. Although the park is conveniently close to the city, its unparalleled natural beauty will make you feel as though you've entered another world.
