We were a family of 10 in Malibu for Pepperdine graduation ceremony. This beautiful home was a pleasure to live in for part of a week. It is a short, 10-15 minute drive down the mountain to Malibu. The views from the house are spectacular and force you to slow down and savor them often. The house is open living area which is great. 4 baths also came in very handy with 2 of them being in bedrooms, 1 just off of the kitchen and the other in the main hallway in the bedroom wing. There are plenty of toiletries and toilet paper provided. The bedrooms were very spacious and all beds very comfortable according to those sleeping in them. There is plenty of storage for your clothing and plenty of bedding and towels. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals; you just furnish the food available down the mountain at Ralphs. It does have a nice selection of spices and paper goods are provided. The area is very quiet and peaceful. The descriptions provided here are very accurate right down to the hummingbirds in the fountain. We enjoyed watching them! There are plenty of extra air mattresses should you need them and portable crib and high chair for baby. Also we found the 2 washers and dryers, with soap conveniently provided, to be very handy in keeping up on all of our laundry. We appreciate John's patience with us as we had several family members schedules to work around so our dates bounced back and forth until we pinned them down. He was very helpful in answering our many questions and making sure we had all of the necessary info we needed before arriving. He also phoned to make sure everything was satisfactory after our arrival. Although the location does not have cell phone service, the land line phone includes long-distance to US locations so this was very satisfactory for us. Thank you John for offering this property and also for including the information booklet on the history of the area. We appreciated it even more after reading it. The house is beautiful yet warm, inviting, and very comfortable. The detail of some of the decor including ship models, numerous beautiful books, and candles, add to the ambiance. Our week could not have been any better. Thank you!
