Malibu will always hold a special place for us!
Our warmest wishes and a great big thanks to the Semler family for the opportunity to experience a truly unique California lifestyle nestled in the northern part of the 21-mile strip of prime Pacific coastline and the Santa Monica mountain range. Kudos to Annette for providing excellent advice on local restaurants, markets and shops. This Malibu beachfront home will always hold a special place for us all.
Oksana, the kids and I truly enjoyed the pristine ocean climate, the beach, the surfing, most of all we loved the beach house and its immaculate ocean view. We saw dolphins every morning, lots of birds, and even a seal who would visit the nearby rock enclave on a daily basis. The beach was basically empty the entire time and the kids spent hours on end surfing the waves and playing in the sand. We truly had a wonderful experience and vacation.
The proximity to the rest of Malibu, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles was unbelievable, and the weather could not have been better! The many great attractions of Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica became part of out California experience. From the nearby Leo Carrillo State Park with its sea cave and tide pools to explore, to the fabulous Getty Villa and its amazing collection dedicated to the arts and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome. During our 9-day stay in Malibu we were also able to attend the performance of the Cirque du Soleil “IRIS” at the world-renowned Kodak Theatre; take a day trip to Universal Studios (kids’ favorite) and attend the Go-Go's concert at the Greek Theatre (parents’ favorite).
The kids also enjoyed the opportunity of being part of the taping of a live-action Disney comedy for kids and families –“Pair of Kings” (our daughter Laryssa was able to get autographs from the four main actors including Mitchel Musso!); tour the Warner Brothers Studio, where we saw Sheldon, Rajesh and Howard from the “Big Bang Theory” comedy series and walked through the “Friends” set. For Canadians, this was a real Hollywood treat.
Thank you once again for a wonderful vacation experience in Malibu, where we created some wonderful memories. We can’t wait to come back.
With warm wishes,
Andrij, Oksana, Marko and Laryssa (Ottawa, Canada)
