Quaint cottage, great view
We had a wonderful time. It was myself, my fiancee and two teenagers. The space is compact, but we had enough room for the week. The washer and dryer don't work very well at all, so if your planning to stay longer than a week, find a laundry mat or bring enough clothes. There is no direct beach access from the cottage, but an amazing view of the ocean from the patio as well as the room. The beach is about a 7 minute drive. Also, be careful when showering to wipe the bathroom floor as it gets very slippery and there is a step down from the pedestal toilet. The owners are very nice people. They live on property, but are unobtrusive. There is a pavilions grocery store about 15 min away down PCH. Our navigation told us the closet store was much further and not knowing the area, we made a 45min one-way drive to the grocery store:( Duke's of Malibu had a yummy, but expensive brunch on Sunday. It was colder than we expected it to be for the end of July, so be sure to check the weather. Overall, great time was had and the view from this cottage is breath taking, awesome view to wake up to every morning, we miss it already.
Families with Teenagers,
Owner's Response: Thanks for the five star review of the Ocean Sunsets Studio! A few tips:
+Follow the directions on the euro washer/dryer... small loads is a definite for it to wash and dry clothes well --no heavy items, jeans or towels :).
+There is a State Beach right across PCH from the property and the County Beach of Zuma is a little further.
+Our newest grocery store which is 5 miles away is expected to open in the FALL, along with new restaurants and shops. It is a welcomed addition, but the Pavilions on Point Dume is on the other side of Zuma Beach.
+Squeegee the shower door BEFORE exiting and leave the large bath mats on the floor!
+Read the additional check in information sheet which has all of these items and more to make your stay most enjoyable. When in doubt, give us a shout, we are always available to answer questions.
Remember, the Stars and the well-to-do have homes in Malibu to get away from it all because it is a rural peaceful area, 30 miles of beach, 10 acre minimum estates and not a big city atmosphere. Beach weather is cooler than the deserts of Arizona... Escape the heat, the smog, the crowded big city to enjoy endless ocean vistas.
