Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed in this lovely, newly renovated, immaculate, beautifully furnished guest home for 3 nights. Everything about it was to our satisfaction. The kitchen was well supplied and we enjoyed having breakfast in the warm and inviting quiet atmosphere.

The property is somewhat remote, but that adds to its charm. A car is definitely needed.

Highly recommend this place, especially if you want a relaxing serene environment.

Malbec On The Creek Ranch
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Great location, high quality accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights at Malbec on the Creek in late July. Randi and George are friendly and professional. The cottage is quiet and extremely clean with modern furniture & finishes, and we appreciated the spacious king sized bed. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The exterior of the property is beautiful as well - nice & spacious sitting and lounging areas to enjoy the outdoors in the yard. The location is great if you have plans in the Northern LA area - the location was less than 10 minutes to the PCH in Malibu or to the 101 freeway, with easy access to the rest of LA. We attended a wedding at Rancho del Cielo, which was just 15-20 minutes away (very close), and there are a lot of beaches right at your fingertips. The other thing I really appreciated about the location is how close you are to shopping & restaurants, right off the PCH. If you're visiting people at Pepperdine University, this location is a great alternative to a hotel.

Great stay

Great location. Can hike the Santa Monica mountains right from the home. 15 minutes later you can be on the beach. Home provides all the amenities you will need. Would recommend.

Well located in the middle of the Santa Monica mountains- a great base camp for outdoor adventures

  • 5 of 5

My wife son and I spent a week at Randi and George's guesthouse. We found it very comfortable and well located in the middle of the Santa Monica mountains. I'm a cyclist and I found the location perfect for quick access to some great rides. The guesthouse is nestled deep in a valley, surrounded by mountains. It would also be a great starting point for hiking!

Very Friendly and Accommodating Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! We were visiting Malibu for the day and needed somewhere to sleep. Randi was very accommodating and sweet, greeted us at the door and chatted for a bit. She gave us multiple recommendations for the area for food and wineries. Also, she let us drop in a little earlier than planned, as we arrived in Malibu sooner than expected. The bed was very comfortable and there were cots and air mattresses as well for extra guests. Coffees and teas set out for you in the morning. Super wonderful stay, I would definitely stay with Randi again for my next visit to Malibu.

Friendly hosts, nice place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a little nervous at the time of booking as this was the first time we've ever used this website rather than booking into a hotel.

This was my first time driving in the US and the drive there was not a problem using gps! There was adequate room for parking, no traffic around the area and the surrounding area was just calm, peaceful and beautiful!

We had a fully equipped kitchen to ourselves with a filter coffee machine! The place was tidy and clean with more than adequate towels and toiletries. There was a good size bed with a comfortable mattress and also comfortable sofas to chill out.

Randi and George were very accommodating, responded to my emails instantly and have kindly accepted my last minute requests.

The location was perfect as Malibu beach/Nobu was only 15 minute drive, supermarket was 5-10minute drive, short drive to route 101 and it is crucial to have a car!

The place was cool and air-con was ready to use, there were so much to explore around the area but unfortunately we didn't plan enough time to stay.

I would definitely recommend this place if you like to stay away from downtown LA, have access to a car and looking for somewhere nice and peaceful to chill in! We had such a great time that we would be sure to stay here again next time we visit LA! Thank you Randi and George for a perfect end to our holiday :-)

Peaceful, modern mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Randi allowed us to drop our bags off early and see the place so that we didn't have to check in at midnight. The cottage was modern and clean with all of the amenities you need. The bed was very comfortable. The location was beautiful, quiet and relaxing. The drive through the mountains was always fun, and Malibu is a just down the road. Thanks for a great weekend!
