So we stayed here three nights in May and had our wedding reception in the backyard. We had the ceremony just up the street on the beach at Point Dume ($400 for the permit). A baby grey whale even showed up right before the ceremony began. The house is so beautiful and there was plenty of room for everyone. My family and some friends in the wedding party stayed with us. The house has an amazing view of Malibu and it is very secluded away from all the other houses. I had my family/ friends draw names out of a hat for best room, but all the rooms were so great there was nothing to fight over. There is even a rustic cottage away from the house my mom and Aunt stayed in that was practically noise free. Richard the manager might be the nicest guy in the world. He took extra time to show us how to work the hot tube and sound system and went out of this way to make sure our stay was perfect. He also gave us our deposit back in full the same day we checked out. Our wedding turned out so wonderful and we are so happy we found this place. The only regret we had was not staying longer. After driving on the bumpy roads in Costa Rica for two weeks for our honeymoon we missed our relaxing castle by the sea.
