To put it simply, everything about our stay at Olive Grove Cottage was perfect. I'll start with communication with the owner, Jill. We spoke on the phone after my initial enquiry, and she was a delight - knowledgable, charming and professional. Answered questions, gave me hints and tips. Payment taken easily, no hassle. Directions sent via email were spot on - which is good, cause the GPS would have been no good! Arrival - so friendly, welcoming, realaxed - and then let us get on with our vacation! So peaceful, so quiet, such charm - and so convenient for visitors to Pepperdine. The house is so simple, so beautiful - it fit us to a "T" (not some grand Malibu mansion, but a welcoming cottage). I have genuinely never had such a good experience renting a vacation home. Olive Grove EXCEEDED my expectations in every way. I would absolutely recommend staying here for as long as you can! (and that's saying something - I'm a Visitor Experience Consultant whose job is to critique tourist facilities!) Many many thanks Jill and hubby!
