There aren't enough superlatives for Dana and her Zen Cottage. Its location is excellent (always important to consider the LA traffic situation). The cottage itself is spacious, beautifully decorated, and extremely comfortable. The porch was fantastic for late-afternoon reading (or, in my case, wine!), and to relax in the sunshine with the smell of rosemary in the air and the gentle sounds of the waterfall in the yard made this place absolutely live up to its name. Now: the host! Dana is the coolest, most fun chick ever, and I am making her become my friend. Can't wait to go back!

I thoroughly enjoyed staying here for the week! Dana was flexible with early check in and the place was FANTASTIC! I stayed here for a business trip and it was just the place of comfort, quiet, and relaxation I needed to wind down. I would recommend this place for anyone who is in town for pleasure or business. Central location as it is easy to get to downtown and to other parts of West LA.

Dana's place truly is a zen retreat as described! Our new favorite Airbnb! I stayed here with my six-year-old son on a quick, 4-day business trip. It was perfect for us! Dana has thought of everything one would need in a vacation home and added extras that make her such an awesome host...adding some staples that were "life-savers" such as plenty of water bottles waiting cold in the frig., oatmeal packets and Nespresso with cream & sugar for breakfast, tissues, even an ice pack which came in handy when my son twisted his ankle at the playground! Couldn't say enough positives about this rental! The green space and beautiful garden surrounding it definitely played a huge role in the zen atmosphere for us, as did the cleanliness and beautiful decor!! Hope to return again!!

Hi Dana, Thanks a lot for the stay at your place. Clearly one of the best Airbnb we've ever made! We had an amazing time in Santa Monica and your little house is very well located. We also really appreciated the warm welcome with the red wine bottle and the beach towels. We wish you all the best :)
