My kids and I had a wonderful time staying at such a comfortable and beautiful home. House was very clean.. mattress was the best.. nice bathroom and shower too.. great and quiet neighborhood and so convenient, especially it’s my first time in Santa Monica!!! So happy I found this home. We loved it! Thank you Jacqui and Howard for your hospitality.

Wonderful stay at the Zen Cottage

Our family had a wonderful one-week stay at Zen Cottage. We arrived from the airport famished and exhausted, and were welcomed by a lovely note and basket of fresh fruit and chocolates – a perfect touch typical of Howard and Jacqui’s attention to detail. Everything in the house is spotless and beautifully maintained. The rooms are comfortable and have everything a traveler needs, and the house is well-laid out with a very calming feel. Howard and Jacqui are very accessible and friendly, and we thank them for their hospitality. We highly recommend Zen Cottage.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind words. We enjoyed spending some time with your family especially the kids. We hope we can have the opportunity to host you again on your next California visit. Howard & Jacqui

Loved this home..modern, clean, well equipped, recently updated, compact. Truly a zen experience. Location convenient to Santa Monica attractions without being overly close to the crowds. Perfect Wi fi, dvd players and TVs in all rooms. Kitchen well stocked. Washer, dryer top of the line. We went with my parents and 5 year old daughter, the layout worked out well. My daughter could sleep on the pullout couch in the living area. Owners very nice, live next door. Checked in on us and gave sugestions for restaurants in the area. I even left my flat iron behind, Jacqui was kind enough to mail it to me. Will definitely be back.
