the place was clean, uber comfortable and very cool looking. the people were super friendly. even though the wi-fi wasn't working, jodie arranged that i could use her neighbours. i visited maxwells, a breakfast joint that jodir recommended, it was really good.
This was the perfect introduction to California! Their lounge was super comfy and clean, and their hospitality was so unexpected and lovely. Our first night in,they had left us snacks and breakfast food on their kitchen counter for the morning. Couldn't say nice enough things, if you rent you don't be disappointed!
Jolie and CJ were one of the best host we ever had! They were very generous and open-minded. The place was perfect, cozy, clean and well located.
Thank you Jolie & CJ for a great stay last week. You were friendly hosts and went out of your way to see that I was comfortable and knew where to park and such. Many thanks, the get-away was just the thing I needed.
The room in which I stayed was a cute and cozy place to crash and it would still have been comfortable with two other people, provided we spent most of our time out in Venice, which is likely to be the case if you're passing through, right? The kitchen was small but serviceable, and the building was generally very quiet. Also, parking was not too much of a hassle, even with alternate sides.
Thankfully, my hosts were flexible as I was out with friends until late in another part of the city. When I got there, the key was waiting for me when I arrived. Excellent.
If I find myself back in Venice, I won't hesitate to stay there again.
It was great staying at Jolie and CJs place. Love how the place is decorated, the vibe is home and Jolie and CJ is super nice and welcoming. I will stay there again if i stop by Venice!
Jolie & cj were good hosts and had a good location for essentials. The neighbourhood was nice with good links to Venice and santa Monica. Groovy pad, good size for two people.
One of my most positive AirBnB experiences ever - I loved this place and I long to return already. Jolie & CJ very graciously accepted my last minute request to stay in their gorgeous, authentic Venice apartment - lucky for me. I arrived to an apartment charmingly lit by heavenly twinkly fairy lights - what a welcome!
Ideally located just off Venice Blvd with plenty of local parking this is just a few blocks from everywhere you'd want to be in Marina Del Rey and Venice. It was also really convenient to LAX (I had an early departure the next morning).
Communication was brilliant; super responsive and always pleasant and upbeat. Every eventuality was foreseen and everything from parking, wi-fi and local knowledge was forthcoming.
Their place is clean, tidy and full of character and is a feast for the eyes - an inspiring space - the bathroom alone is smorgasbord of creative and tasteful upcycling; the sink boasts the most inspiring faucet (tap) I have ever used. A (much needed) great nights sleep was had in one of the most comfortable beds I have ever had.
Towels and sheets were top quality and the shower was fantastic.
A great stay - marred only by the fact that my visit was so brief; I'd have gladly stayed here for a week had circumstances allowed.
Do yourself a favour - stay with Jolie & CJ - you won't be disappointed.
Jolie and CJ were great hosts! Upon arriving, Jolie was there to greet me and even offered me some pumpkin pie and beef stew. Her flat is in a cute little area very close to the beach (I walked to the beach and it took me about 35 minutes). They were exceptionally accommodating; I had a friend stranded in LA due to east coast flight cancellations and they allowed her to stay one night at the last minute, we just paid them the additional guest fee. Overall, it was a great experience, I'd highly recommend!
Jolie was a lovely host...very helpful and super friendly! The location is perfect since it's close to LAX and also if you don't have a car as the beach and bus stations are close...highly recommended!!
