Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was everything it said it was and more. The view was amazing and the place is really modern and clean. Can't wait to come back to Malibu and stay here again. Thank you Amber for sharing your home with me on this special weekend. It made my engagement magical!

This property is right on the beach. Any closer it would be a houseboat! Amber was very responsive and easy to work with during all phases of the visit. Property very clean and well apportioned. Would stay here again

Find peace with an oceanfront view!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 extraordinary days on the northern end of Malibu. Having stayed here before, I knew I wanted to be "away" from the crowds. What I didn't know is how much the owners had done to the place since my last visit. New paint, decor, a new bath, and extremely comfortable sheets and towels just enhanced an already awesome place and made it even harder to leave.

The home is extremely comfortable, from the dining room seating to the living area furniture to the lounge chairs on the deck to the beds in both bedrooms.

In addition, the kitchen has every conceivable device, from new All Clad sauce and saute pans to a complete cooking knife block set and even an ice cream scoop! You can explore the local and updated Vintage Grocer and Malibu Seafood market for gourmet meals at home. Or you can drive to any number of restaurants a short distance away.

The home is compact and efficient - a mid century jewel box!

You can walk about 30 steps to the sand and wander to County Line Beach, a quiet but favorite surf spot, or just sit on the deck where the water appears so close you feel like you are on a boat at sea!

Basic stuff - hot water, water pressure, washer dryer, dishwasher, TV all were updated and worked great! Plenty of parking!

If you want to go to LA, it's a quick 30 minutes down one of the more beautiful drives you will experience and you will recognize certain turns from various car commercials.

You can hear an occasional car passing, but generally it is more than drowned out by the waves crashing out front! And the view of the moon is otherworldly!

Other local beaches and the Getty Villa are 5-10 minutes away. The Getty Museum and Santa Monica are about 30 minutes, and even Santa Barbara is only an hour or so. The house is really in an amazing spot!

Last, the owners are available basically anytime and will bend over backwards to make you comfortable, including giving up their beach chair for you when you weren't even asking for one!

The last time I stayed here, I said I would be back, and I was. And I will be back again!

Beautiful property and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better time. From the kid’s enjoyment of the private beach to watching the sunset on the deck above to the sound of the waves as we all fell asleep in the most comfortable beds. Of course we hope to return as soon as possible.

The jewel box is quite a rare jewel

  • 5 of 5

This jewel box is quite the rare jewel. I cannnot recommend this spot enough! What an amazing place! The house sits right atop the Malibu shore. The sunset, sunrise and the moon at night are views to behold. The house itself is very comfortable and has all the amenities you need. I stayed almost a week and just used the gas grill on the patio and bbq'd for lunch and dinner. During my stay, I also met the the property owner, Amber, and her lovely family. The best host you'll ever meet. I'm already planning on my second stay!

This was a dissappointing rental

  • 2 of 5

This is a very small rental. The photos shown have been taken with a wide angle lens to make it look larger but it is much smaller than it looks. I'm guessing it is about 700 sf of living space. There were only three of us and we were really cramped. The fact that you are staring down at the roof of another unit from your balcony is not disclosed in the description and not clear from the photos but you are. Other rentals we looked at on VRBO disclosed this but this one did not. The master bedroom is cramped, has no closet and the bed takes up the entire room. It looks like they converted what was the closet to a half bath. There is no separate light switch for the bath so at night you either have to turn the lights on in the entire bedroom or find your way to the bath in the dark. The day we checked in there were bugs in the ice from the ice maker and hair on the shower wall. I had to request a hairdryer be brought over as there was none. The shower is a bit hard to step up and over and I am in 5'5. The washer/dryer sits out with no door next to the full bath. It just was not as nice as it looked in the photos. Definitely didn't meet our expectations.
