This cottage is set in lovely grounds, very peaceful, good parking, great location for local shops, lovely cafe and a Starbucks in walking distance and supermarket, cocktail bar, pharmacy, N.Y deli 3 minute walk. The cottage itself is very cosy, the garden is lovely, we sat and watched squirrels playing around in the large tree above us as we ate lunch it was so nice, we don't have anything negative to say about our stay it was exactly as they said it would be and we thank them so much.

This place is GREAT! The location is very convenient. Just a couple of miles from Bev Hills/West Hollywood and Santa Monica, but in a quiet residential area with a lovely bakery/cafe and a Whole Foods just a block away - plus free and easy parking. The cottage is clean and spacious for 2, with a comfy bed, Netflix, mini fridge, coffee, dishes, toiletries, etc. There were some lovely special touches like wine and fruit, even fresh avocados we were allowed to pull from the trees in the beautiful yard. We’d definitely stay there again!

The cottage was lovely! They even left us a bottle of wine and let us pick avocados from their tree!

My wife and I booked Alexa & Jon's cottage for a weekend trip to LA. When we arrived, late in the evening, Alexa & Jon had someone to answer the door for us, to allow us to check-in to the cottage, which was great and from what I believe, an inconvenience to them. We appreciated their service to us during our vacation, as it was an important one to us. During our stay, Alexa & Jon learned that it was a special occasion for my wife and I, they dropped off champagne and congratulatory card for us, which was amazing! I honestly did not expect such things when I first booked the cottage. It was a beautiful cottage, clean, roomy and very accommodating. Alexa & Jon offered board games, a mini-fridge, and many other amenities that were great for our stay. My wife and I would recommend Alexa & Jon to all who visit the LA area and we would gladly stay again if the occasion calls for it.

Alexa & Jon are great hosts! They are extremely responsive and communicative. The Avocado Cottage is so clean and well kept! At night they light up the patio in the backyard, and it's absolutely beautiful! We did run into some issues that shorted my stay with them, but Alexa and Jon were extremely accommodating and so kind. When I go back to LA, I would definitely love to stay with them again!

Dear Alexa&Jon, thank you very much for our stay! Your place is adorable. Thank you for the possibility of late departure. We took our time to have breakfast outside and it was very nice! So once again thank you for everything!

We love living in Los Angeles and we love hosting guests from near and far. We are enthusiastic travelers ourselves and know how nice it is to have a comfortable place to stay while on a trip. Jon works in the film industry and hails from the Bay Area, and Alexa teaches figure skating and grew up in Switzerland. Our favorite things to do in Los Angeles are trying out new restaurants, going hiking, surfing and `visiting the museums around the city.
