About Jodi Antonelli

I love to entertain and built my home for great family events. Wine tasting with friends and relaxing around the pool is my idea of down time. I work in advertising and have been for 30 years. I have two Labrador retrievers and they are my best friends.

Jodi Antonelli purchased this House in 1995

Why Jodi Antonelli chose Mount Helix

This is the most amazing house. The Private pool and deck are very relaxing. The game room and player piano offer tons of fun. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances and utensils that you could ask for. All the bedrooms are separated by a bathroom or hallway and do not share common walls. The house is private and on one level with tons of space for kids to play or watch TV while adults visit and relax.

What makes this House unique

This house is not wheel chair accessible but the closest that you can get to it. It's all one level with steps only to the living room. The drive way is flat and parks 7 cars. The location is real 10-15 minutes from almost anywhere you will want to visit. Most people say that the house is a vacation in itself. Since we are located just past the marine layer, it can be cold and overcast at the beach but always sunny here at our home! Family reunions are fantastic here. All generations enjoy this home and everyone is comfortable. Sing around the player piano, swim in your private pool and play a game of billiards in the evenings - all while preparing amazing meals in the gourmet kitchen or outside built in BBQ. All rooms have individually controlled Air conditioning units.

The house was spotless and well equipped with absolutely anything you could ever want. The kitchen is to die for and every appliance possible. We LOVED our time spent there with our family. The kids loved the pool and the game room. Thank you Jodi for your lovely home. Hope we can come back again 💕�💕�👍�👍�

Your are a wonderful family and I hope you do come back so we can do some wine tasting together 😉�. Thank you for staying, thank you for reviewing the home and please come back! Don’t wait until next year! See you again soon!

                                                                  From the beginning, Jodi kept open communication and answered all questions and requests. She was an amazing host and the house was to die for! It was able to accommodate all of us comfortably. We were able to treat this like our own home by BBQing, relaxing and not have to worry about anything. Some people complained about water, we had no issues whatsoever. We will definitely be staying here again!

                                                                  Beyond thrilled!

                                                                  Ataf K.

                                                                  This property was so amazing we didn’t want to leave! It is so well kept and immaculate & spacious. We walked in to a beautiful, inviting kitchen with a warm welcome. The kitchen was fully stocked with every appliance you could imagine (all high end) and more, including a wine fridge! It had plenty of dishes, utensils etc & lots of seating. The bedrooms were all very bright & spacious with very comfy beds and linens. There were ample amounts of towels of all sizes, a very high end washer/dryer & even a pack & play & highchair for our little one. We didn’t have enough time to enjoy the backyard, but wish we had as it was stunning. Great view, lots of space & seating for dining or lounging, plus a pool.

                                                                  Jodi was a wonderful hostess. She has truly thought of every comfort one might need or want when away from home. She was available to answer questions and responded immediately when we couldn’t figure out the TV! I haven’t had a lot of great experiences with vrbo or airbnb but this one blew it out of the park! We would absolutely stay here again & have already recommended this house to several of our friends & family!

                                                                  Thanks Jodi!

                                                                  great house

                                                                  Laura P.

Amazing outdoor deck and pool area, wonderfully stocked kitchen. Quiet and safe neighborhood away from the crowds of San Diego yet a short drive to the beach.

                                                                  Excellent! Highly recommended!!

We were able to sleep everyone comfortably. The location was convenient. There was an abundance of plates, bowls etc as well as silver- and plastic-ware, serving dishes and platters. I would definitely stay here again without hesitation and would recommend it to anyone. We absolutely loved it!!! Thank you for making our reunion so memorable!!

Beaches close enough to visit but far enough from the drunk fest and college scene! Going to the Baseball game, Gaslamp District is 15 minutes, Football? Qualcomm Stadium is 10 minutes!
