This is NOT a condo, a townhouse, an apartment, a guest house, a loft, a cottage, a shared house or a rented space. This is a stand-alone home on a lot twice the lot size of typical homes in Venice, with a beautiful sunny garden in the front & back and over 400 varieties of flowers and plants, minutes to Marina Del Rey, LAX Airport, Westwood, Beverly Hills & Hollywood.

Le logement

This home features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and can sleep up to 6 people. Bright, airy windows bring fresh ocean breeze into every room. It's easy to enjoy many beautiful views of the flower-filled garden. French doors from the dining room and master bedroom open to the large wrap-around deck overlooking the garden, providing wonderful, calming indoor/outdoor living. The bright birch wood kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and has everything you could possibly need to create a gourmet meal. Help yourself to fresh Meyer lemons and loquats outside your kitchen window, or take a short, pleasant walk to the weekly farmer’s market a few blocks away.

Enjoy your meal or just relax and renew on the spacious deck overlooking the garden. Fragrant jasmine, honeysuckle, exotic stephanotis, and many other flowering vines drape over the arbor, and the covered dining and sitting areas provide comfort, rain or shine. Fairy lights on the deck and throughout the garden create magical, twinkling lighting in the evening. The garden was designed with love and creativity, featuring over 300 varieties of both exotic and traditional plants. Fresh flowers, vegetables, herbs and fruits delight the senses, year round. Butterflies, hummingbirds, and many types of songbirds grace the garden with their beauty.

The home is located in a safe peaceful neighborhood with families and young professionals.

The home has hardwood and slate flooring, recessed lighting on dimmers and with lamps on remotes. It has been furnished with quality items ranging from antiques to designs by Eames and Nelson. Furnishings from Ligne Roset, H.D. Buttercup, Crate and Barrel, CB2, Room and Board, DWR and more all reflect the Californian aesthetic of clean, modern lines accented by the character and depth drawn from different traditions.

The bright and comfortable living room greets you upon entering the home, and the brand new 48 inch 4k TV set provides a visual feast. The bookshelves offer a wide range of reading materials for your perusal, as well as some natural curiosities and art pieces for your enjoyment.

The master bedroom is located at the back of the house and has a king bed with luxury, 500 thread count linens. It features an ensuite bathroom and full closet with built-in organizers. Two sets of French doors lead to the deck, perfect for your morning coffee or for peaceful reflection.

One guest bedroom has a queen sized bed with a Tempurpedic mattress. We have appointed the bed with high quality, high thread count luxury linens for your comfort. The room also has a twin sized bed (tucked away, trundle style) for an additional guest if desired. There are also games and toys for your entertainment.

The second guest bedroom has a comfortable and stylish Ligne Roset convertible bed/sofa. It opens to an approximately queen sized bed, but is slightly longer. We provide luxurious, high thread count linens for this bed as well.

The house is stocked with an abundance of bedding, comforters, pillows, blankets, throws, etc., for your use.

The guest bathroom is located conveniently in the hallway. Soft, plush Charisma cotton towels are provided for your use. Beach towels are available for fun and relaxation.

The dining room opens out onto the deck via French doors and overlooks the garden. Enjoy your dinner inside or out, with seating for six at our 1920’s English dining table, or out on the deck on the outdoor dining table. A stainless steel, propane powered Weber BBQ is ready for grilling.

The deck has multiple sitting areas and is perfect for hanging out and chatting, reading, birdwatching, yoga, taking a nap, sunbathing, savoring a cup of tea, or sipping some wine.

Please be respectful of the home and garden. Everything there was chosen, placed, or planted with care and love and we would like you to enjoy it as we did and hope others will in the future as well. Please do not take or remove anything from the property. Any damages or problems should be reported to us immediately and we will try to remedy any issues.

This is a quiet neighborhood with families and professionals, so please no loud music or parties. Guests on the property should be only those on the contract. We reserve the right to have full name and contact information on each guest staying at the home. Please make sure all guests in your party read, understand, and abide by the house rules.

One pet under 20 lbs may be allowed, but ONLY with our explicit approval. Additional cleaning fees may be required. No "visiting" pets to be brought by visitors for any amount of time.

Please, no smoking indoors and no drugs. No burning of candles, incense or any item or product inside the house.

No frying, especially animal flesh frying, is allowed in the house as cleaning all furniture and walls of residual grease and odors would take us a lot of labor.

Any undisclosed guests or animals visiting the property will forfeit the stay.

We reserve the right to enter the yards for care or maintenance during stays, and will do our best to coordinate a mutually convenient time. (We try to avoid this, but it may be necessary for longer stays or upon exigent circumstances.)

We hope that all of our guests will enjoy staying at our home, and hope that you will help us achieve that by treating the property with care and consideration. :)

We had a wonderful time at Jani's cottage. The best and perhaps most unique feature of the place is the magnificent garden with the sheltered back deck. It was spacious enough for four adults and a baby to lounge around, play, relax and feel at home. Even surrounded by other houses, we felt a great deal of privacy thanks to the lush vegetation that screened us from view. The neighborhood is also very convenient - two supermarkets and quite a number of restaurants and coffee shops were all within easy walking distance. It is also in easy driving range to Santa Monica - the 10 and the 405 freeways are also close by, making it easy to access the rest of LA (subject to typical LA traffic of course). We had no problems while at Jani's, and she and her husband were very prompt in responding to any questions we had over email. overall a wonderful experience. we would definitely come back!

Jani is very nice and the house is decent. The only concern we had during our stay is no Air Conditioning and no screen of any windows and door. The garden is beautiful but probably because of it, we got a lot of mosquito bites including our 8-month old baby. We called the owner and he recommend us not coming in the summer in the future. This is a little ridiculous. I guess I just assume AC and screen of windows are just the norm. Both bathrooms are really small. The house is in a convenient location if you want to explore Marina Del Rey and Westside LA.

Helen and family visited Los Angeles and honored us by staying at our home. Their 4 day stay sadly coincided with a record breaking heat wave that was felt across the country. It is factually false to say the house has no screens. The entire house has window screens except for a few small windows which have never posed an issue to any guests! People never had a problem. I mentioned these 3 windows and even asked if they wanted me to put up the window screens for those 4 days, but they sounded ok with it. I asked our current guests after Helen about the issue and they emailed back saying: “We really aren't getting any insects inside, except maybe a moth or two in the dining area at night, when the lights are on inside and doors all open. It's not been an issue for us in the screen less rooms. ” The average temperature for July in that area is 73.5 degrees F but this time it rose to 85 I think. We experienced 95 in our other home in LA and 105 in the valley! Homes near the beach simply do not usually have air conditioning. It is generally not needed. The house has an AC that we disconnected when we built our deck and did not reconnect it as we never used it. It is stated in the ad. We may reconnect it, although such heat is rare. It is scientifically inaccurate to state that a garden causes mosquitoes! Standing water, (which we do not have anywhere!) breeds mosquitoes, not plants! This heat wave may have led to an increase in some types of insects, but that is merely speculation. Communication was difficult. For example, after spending an inordinate amount of time explaining how to turn on a ceiling fan and another half hour giving them neighborhood tips tailored to their needs since they were house hunting, I mentioned what I tell everyone: “LA is more beautiful in winter. Temperatures are great and the winter clouds make for amazing sunsets.” (See photo in our listing!) But Helen has apparently imagined that I was shirking responsibility whereas I was trying to give her a friendly tip. I am sorry we had so much heat and misunderstanding.

The house is a hidden treasure -- the gardens are beautiful and the canopy outside keeps everything cool, quiet, and private. It was lovely to sit in the garden, a great way to start the day. The house came with everything you would need for an enjoyable stay, and was super clean. The furniture was very comfortable, all the rooms were wide and open, and were glad to see there is a driveway so we didn't have to look for street parking. We highly recommend this house. It's in a perfect location, less than 10 minutes to the beach and close to everything around LA. Plus Jani was very easy to communicate with, and simply a wonderful person.

My family and I had such a wonderful time at Jani's home! What a gem! The garden in the back is absolutely beautiful. It was quiet, safe and close to restaurants, cafes and grocery. Having such a welcoming, warm and calming space was such a gift during the days leading up to my wedding. Jani was communicative and a pleasure to have as a host. Highly recommend this to all who love nature, peace and quiet while visiting Los Angeles. :)

The entire process was very clear and easy. The guests absolutely loved the house and garden and would definitely try to book this unit again.

Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will join us again soon. Just to be clear to others, 'Unit' in California refers to apartment units and condos and not stand alone homes with front and backyard like ours. Your party was a breeze to work with and we barely had to discuss anything. We stayed here ourselves a few days before you and a few after you guys left. I must say the air quality is NICE and the clouds are so beautiful. Thank you for staying with us, thank you for the great review and thank you the artistic work you are doing.
