Staying at this spot is a great experience! The yard is shaded at all times and is such a tranquil and beautiful place to relax. The house is stocked with so many thoughtful details - we packed things we didn't need because everything was provided! Jodi has beach toys, beach towels, and beach umbrellas to use. We had an incredible time, spending most of it at Santa Monica beach creating some great memories for our kids. Jodi is so welcoming and helpful! The house is exactly as it looks in the pictures and is perfectly delightful.
We stayed for 5 nights and had a very good time in Jodi's guesthouse. Travelling with two young children, having a garden for them to play in was a bonus. The guesthouse is fully equipped and nicely decorated. Jodi had supplied almost everything we would need including hand towels, beach towels, dishwashing detergent and laundry detergent. Of course the hot tub was a bonus. Shame it was not recommended for our young kids but we find it a pleasure to soak in when they are asleep at night. Only downside is that the sofa bed's mattress is rather uncomfortable and a kettle (for tea and fixing baby's milk) is missing. Location wise it is also great. Having Whole foods nearby and also other good eateries like Superba, Gjelina, Wurstkuche, Rose barkey, Hamasushi etc are within walking distance. Overall I strongly recommend her place, we felt really at home!!!
We had a wonderful stay at Jodi's place. The apartment itself is very clean, stylish, and well maintained. The backyard is absolutely adorable! We unfortunately didn't get a chance to use the hot tub, but I would definitely stay here again just for that benefit.
Jodi and her husband were extremely welcoming and were always available when needed. Wonderful stay!
Very warm welcome! Jodi made sure everything was alright and gave us a lot of precious advice and kind thoughts (bikes available)
The place is well located in Venice for a first stay in L.A
Neighborhood is quiet, nice little garden. Perfect for 3 people
Not far away from the beach and from Abbot Kinney.
We had a wonderful stay at Jodi's family house!
Enjoyed a fantastic weekend of concert, beaches, sunsets, great food, and hot tubbing. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We stayed in the heart of Santa Monica, but somehow left feeling like we'd been at a solitudesque retreat. The hospitality and amenimities were top notch. If they'd have us again we wouldn't hesitate to land here for a repeat getaway.
Fantastic find! Our family of three were able to take advantage of the fabulous neighborhood of Venice. A nice walk away from everthing you would need while vacationing.
The hostess were informative and helpful on every level from telling us about local schools in LA to hot spots for dinning. They gaves us bikes and wine which was a great added plus to enjoy the surroundings.
The cottage is equiped for vacation mode- hot tub is dreamy - cozy bed and endless books and Dvd's for entertaining oneslves. Nice outside yard - very private and green.
Thank you for everything,
Dara, Peter and Nathan
We just spent 4 days in Jodi's wonderful apartment. It is attractive, clean, and very nicely located. (The hot tub was a particularly nice feature.) Jodi is a wonderful host, and we would definitely stay here again!
Great little apartment/house in the perfect Los Angeles neighborhood! To me this part of Venice/Santa Monica is has everything, with a lot of cafés, shops and restaurants close by and still it is calm and almost has the feeling of a small town. Also the beach is just a few blocks away.
The apartment in itself had everything we needed although the kitchen is very small. Great little private garden. Jodi was so friendly and helpful and easy to get in touch with both before our arrival and during our stay.
We would highly recommend this place and could definitely come back durning other visits to LA!

Here's a perfect little spot -- nice design, furnishings and art, yard and privacy and right around corner from great eateries and blocks from the beach. Loved having the bike to ride around Venice and Santa Monica. House has everything you need if you want to stay in and Jodi is friendly, helpful and considerate.
A nice little apartment. Jodi was great. Very much enjoyed our experience.
Jodi and her family are very nice people, easy going, easy to communicate, it is always nice to deal with such nice persons.
They left early in the morning and the apartment was with everything in its place very easy to rearrange. Thank you and come again whenever you wish.
A good guest
Jodi and her family were a pleasure to host, we had great communication leading up to and throughout the stay. They took great care of the place and treated as if it were there own.
Welcome back anytime!
I first met Jodi working together over 15 years ago. She hired me as her Decorator on a movie and we have remained friends ever since. I have been to her home many times and it is clean, comfortable and contemporary. She has alway been a generous and engaging host. While working together she has always been a creative thinker which transcends into her entire lifestyle. We have only traveled together once on a weekend trip to Palm Springs and she was a pleasure to be with. I would travel with her and her family any time if I had the opportunity. I would recommend Jodi to other Airbnb members because she has a wonderful home in a great area and she is a very trustworthy person who appreciates the value in the every day details. Jodi and her family would treat your home as if it was their own.
Jodi & Dorian are amazing people. we have been neighbors for a few years now and I couldn't love them more. their house is full of light & love and everyone immediately feels comfortable there. They have amazing taste in furniture and decor and their garden is beautiful too.
J & D are the most creative, kind, clean, friendly people you could find. We trust them 100%.
This house is awesome, as are its owners, Jodi & Dorian. We've known Jodi for seven years, and think she and D are the greatest. Their new rental space is amazing - in fact, I'd like to live there, myself. As production designers for television and film, their creativity and ingenious use of space is magazine-worthy. And the proximity to all things grooviest about Venice is what's most attractive! J & G are wonderful hosts and caring, thoughtful and creative people. You couldn't do better!
The kindest, cleanest, most creative lovely family I know! Stay with them if you want a safe beautiful experience. The location is amazing! The house is custom, unique, bright and artistic. They are dream hosts!
Jodi and her family are some of the nicest, most generous individuals that I have ever met. They are considerate, kind and hospitable at all times! Jodi is fun, laid back and easy going...I simply love to be in her company. If you are lookingg for a night on the town, Jodi knows the best restaurants and clubs. On a night in, she has games, movies and great tunes. And if you have kids, there is no shortage of activities, books and games. I love Jodi and her family to pieces!
