Guestbook comments from the manager

New York, New York -

Never really thought we would be this close, so fast. Didn’t really know what to expect. First plane ride and it was to this special place.

Thank you for such an amazing experience it was more than anything I could have asked for.

Loved our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a four night stay at this rental and we wish we didn't have to leave.

The apartment is as advertised - quiet, one bedroom, on the beach, on-site stair access down to the beach, waves at high tide right below the balcony, and easy walking distance to the Malibu Pier, Surfrider Beach, and Malibu Lagoon. Our daughters enjoyed walking down the beach and collecting shells, while my wife and I enjoyed the evenings on the balcony enjoying a glass of wine, the waves and ocean sounds.

The apartment was clean and adequately stocked with towels, sheets and kitchenware. We had no issues whatsoever with any aspect of the reservation process, a detailed pre-arrival overview and instructions were provided, and the owner and her representatives were attentive and available for any questions.

In sum, we loved our stay, would (and will) recommend it to friends and family, and look forward to staying again in the future.

Wonderful property. Beautiful views and close proximity to the pier.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything we needed. The kids loved the beach toys and I loved the beach lounges. Checkin was straight forward and easy. No dramas at all. It was simply wonderful. The bed was incredibly comfy as well.

Waves Crashing Below

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to spend some time with our daughter before she heads off to her first year in college, and even though we live only an hour's drive from Malibu, thought it would be fun to get an ocean front spot and enjoy the Malibu lifestyle. Seal was exactly as advertised, with waves literally crashing almost underneath the property at high tide. Easy access to a beautiful and very sparsely populated beach. Very nice deck to sit on, which we did often throughout our stay. Everything you need is here, and the only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it is has some wear-and-tear (although I like it's beach cottage vibe and it is easy to feel very comfortable here). We will definitely return and highly recommend it if you do not require like-new decor.

I happen to own a restaurant down the street, so if VRBO will allow me, I will put in a plug for Marmalade Cafe. After experiencing the prices in Malibu (especially at the tourist-oriented businesses) it is clear that Marmalade offers great price value for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Located about a mile North on Pacific Coast Highway in the Cross Creek shopping center, come pay us a visit! You can look-up our menus online at

Again big fan of VRBO (had a great experience in Napa Valley as well) and plan on making this an annual visit with our daughter!

Adorable Abode

  • 5 of 5

The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The condo is a corner location, so the view was spectacular! The decor is light and airy and everything felt clean. The entire unit was extremely well equipped. Kudos to whoever figured out how to think of EVERYTHING. We stayed there with our 2 young sons and felt that there was enough room for all 4 of us. You'll want to pass the hours away on the balcony, so bring extra chairs if there are more than 2 of you. The tide comes up high and is beautiful to watch it crash into the rocks just below you. With this in mind, you will find areas to the left or right of the complex to sit in the sand during low tide. Staying right on the sand/water is chicken soup for the soul and you will be glad that you found this little gem!
