My family and I just returned from Lydia's fantastic home on Birdview Lane. The house is perfectly located close to the best beaches, restaurants and shops. We spent all day in the pool and hot tub and grilled at night under the stars. So relaxing. Lydia was totally on point answering any questions and had lots of suggestions. We definitely plan to return!
Had an amazing time. Look forward to our next stay here.
If you're looking for a beautiful, immaculate, well equipped home in a quiet neighborhood, this is the place for you. My husband and I, with four young adults, had plenty of room to spread out, and found the location central enough for everyone to do what s/he wanted. Malibu is fun with lots to do: we saw a music video being filmed on our beach, seals and dolphins, not to mention a few celebs. LA is close enough, as is Santa Monica Pier, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood. We hiked, swam, went to the beach, read by the pool, went sight seeing, and enjoyed excellent dining (we loved Duke's and Sunset) and shopping nearby. Lydia, Charlie and Quinn were delightful hosts as well, helping us with directions and providing any information we needed about the area. If you're looking for an outstanding vacation spot for peaceful R & R or for adventures and activity, I highly recommend this property.
Lydia and Charlie were warm, welcoming and accommodating. My family had our best summer vacation yet, and we can't wait to come back. There was something for everyone (and somewhere for each of our large group to sleep!). Best for families who want to keep their vacations on the more domestic side and not do much sight-seeing other than hikes and beach time, we truly enjoyed this home away from home.
Joined by friends to celebrate a milestone birthday this house was the perfect location and set up for a gathering. A morning walk to the beach followed by lunch at The Sunset, then afternoon at the pool was our daily activity. We cooked in the great kitchen for our evening meal and sat around the outdoor fireplace for our assessment of the day. It is a great home with a good flow for individual or group gather. The owners were near by and quick to help if needed. Can't recommend this property enough.
We (wife & I, two teenage boys aged 13y and 15y) stayed here for a week as part of a 2mo holiday across Hawaii and the US West Coast with a surfing theme. Everyone loved Lydia's home and it was a high point of the trip. The location is ideal. My wife & I have lived in LA before but never in Malibu -- it is an incredibly relaxed and tranquil neighborhood yet a quick (occasionally) drive to the rest of LA (e.g. Venice, Santa Monica, BH).
What we liked: 7min-10min walk to rock climbing, beach or hiking trails; clean, spacious open plan home; easy kitchen; pool/patio/garden private and enjoyable; outdoor showers for post-beach; and the pool itself was a big hit after long days on the beach or hiking. Groceries and all amenities (including a bookstore and takeaway pizza place) are a short 7min drive away. The boys and I would surf Zuma Beach from morning through mid-afternoon and then lounge around the pool. We also loved the nearby Sunset Restaurant, which we hit for several lunches and dinners (a 3min drive or 15min walk down the hill... and back up the hill!).
What could be improved? not a lot... the jacuzzi controls seemed unusually complicated such that only the 13y could operate effectively... or maybe he is just better at reading instructions. any niggle that showed up was quickly addressed, and there weren't many of substance in any case.
We look forward to renting Lydia's house again as a family upon our next visit to LA. We've rented a number through VRBO and Lydia's was probably one of the best we've experienced.
