Lush queen bed; deluxe queen sofabed, 1 bath, full kitchen; sleeps 4

High speed wireless, 42' HD satellite flat screen TV, 12 ft vaulted ceiling with skylight, this studio has everything you need to prepare those special barbecues or gourmet meals which can be enjoyed alfresco!

About Karen Zethraeus

We got into the vacation rental business quite by accident! Built a guest home to accomodate our ever growing family and then it became a vacation rental! We are busy with our anti aging business, family and golf. We love meeting people from all over the world.

Karen Zethraeus purchased this studio in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome! It was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our 45yr anniversary! We only live one hour south in Playa del Rey, but this provided the R&R we were looking for from the busy LA life!, Thanks for a memorable anniversary & will share with others who might be looking for the same. -

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was perfect!! The views are breath taking! We started our vacation in Santa Monica... Stayed at the Lowes.. It was nice .. But nothing compared to our last four days at this bungalow..Convenient to all the beautiful beaches! Driving through the Canyon was just WoW! Also, the little grocery store down Pacific cost had great ready made meals.. If you don't want to cook.. ;)

WE LOVED THIS PLACE... WE WILL BE BACK!

5 stars does not do this justice! Karen and Gary made us feel like family. They offered such attentiveness and privacy...we absolutely will return to this little piece of heaven on earth. This beach bungalow is a must! We cannot say enough fabulous things about our stay!! Highly, highly recommend this property!!! Wish we had stayed longer!

I could live here...

  • 5 of 5

...because it is clean, quiet, convenient and has STUNNING (as described) ocean views; all the reviews are accurate. A personal favorite was the 12 ft vaulted ceiling with skylight, because it meant morning sunlight without [arguing with my husband about] keeping the blinds o

pen! In daylight hours that front window is mesmerizing....So all in all a GEM, with only these caveats: would be nice to have a luggage/garden cart for transporting up/down driveway when loading/unloading; we are healthy/fit but on a long road trip so had to make several trips back/forth each time. Also IF I were staying for longer stretches of time I'd prefer a firmer mattress. Thanks so much for sharing this little slice of paradise!

PERFECT!

We had an incredible time in Malibu and this house was perfect! It was even better than the photos. My daughter is attending college in Malibu so I will be staying here as much as possible!

BEST PLACE FOR A RELAXING GET AWAY!!

  • 5 of 5

PERFECT!! AMAZING!! RELAXING!!

This was the perfect get away spot. Beach house is so cute, cozy and comfy with full amenities and everything you need to enjoy what ever you want at the house.

THE VIEWS ARE MAGIC! The beach is visible from every window and every corner of the property.

I would recommend going down to Broad Beach which is the best beach with smooth sands on one side and caves on the other.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING THIS PLACE!!!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place is wonderful. The views, layout, location ... It's very clean, well equipped, and quiet. I had classes at Pepperdine during my stay and the drive was fine, even though it took around 20 minutes on the PCH. Everything you need including groceries, restaurants, beaches, coffee shops, and hiking are nearby. Even Santa Monica is not that far. I hope to return someday!
