We love the tranquility of our very beautiful mountain and the spectular ocean views
  • We absolutely loved the Ocean View Malibu Hideaway. The view is fantastic, very tranquil. The furnishings were very interesting and comfortable. We had everything we needed. Absolutely loved coming back to the Hideaway each afternoon after enjoying the beach and sitting on the porch with a glass of wine and cheese and relaxing to the incredible view. The birds would chirp in the canyon and the ocean waves would lap the shore, heaven on earth. Even the drive up the mountain to the house was an adventure. David and Ling thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. I do suggest earplugs in case renters are on the top floor if you are a light sleeper. I would stay here again and again, words cannot describe how gorgeous the views are.

  • I got Ling and Davids place for Mother's Day weekend and it was incredible. Didn't even want to leave the property! Just relaxed, and enjoyed the insane views. I miss waking up with those windows! The property itself was such a nice little paradise. It had everything we needed :)

    Miles2017-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Rustic charm, a priceless view, at a reasonable rate. Owners are delightful and accommodating. They recently purchased this property that had been neglected. They are bringing it back to its original glory. They canyon drive can be a bit challenging, but the pleasant solitude is worth the effort. They have a path that wanders up and down rough steps. KEEP A FLASHLIGHT WITH YOU TO HELP NAVIGATE THE PATHWAY WHEN IT GETS DARK. Would - and will - go back again.

    Tyler2015-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • David and Ling's Malibu Hideaway was perfect! The drive up the mountain is a little scary if you've never been on narrow, winding roads but the view is definitely worth it once you get to the house. The view is spectacular and the apartment, while small, is perfect for a romantic getaway. The grounds around the house are beautiful and the apartment was stocked with everything we needed for our 5 day stay. We would definitely love to come back!

    Amanda2016-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a week at Ling & David's place! Upon arrival, it was dark and we felt very safe. The drive up the canyon wasn't bad at all. The walk from the car is a bit of a haul with luggage. Once in the house we made ourselves comfortable. The house was well appointed with all the necessities and then some. The view is unbelievable. I woke up smiling before my eyes were even open. We LOVE the mountains and being in this little secluded nook of Los Flores canyon was just the perfect hide-away. We ate nearly every meal on the deck and enjoyed a few bottles of wine under the stars. We found extra blankets, towels and a few random cooking items and toiletries to make our stay more like home. The guests staying in the house above were very sweet, stopped to say hello and even gave us a tour of the upstairs in exchange for a tour of the downstairs! Being in the lower apartment can be just a bit noisy depending on the guests above but we didn't mind. We'll definitely keep this place in mind for our own future visits to the West Coast and would highly recommend it to anyone!!

  • "Incredible" is the best word I can think of to describe both the location and the views from this house. You choose to stay here because you want a unique experience: You want to drive up those long, winding canyon roads that are so much different from what you drive on everyday; you want to know what it feels like to live in a home with a one-of-a-kind view that has you waking up in a cloud. It's true that the Hideaway has some functional issues, such as the curtain for a bathroom door and a wall that doesn't go all the way up. My husband and I stayed here with our teenage daughter. The futon my daughter slept on could have been more comfortable, that is also true. You are going to have to wash a dish or two (no dishwasher). Although we cooked a few meals here, it is not a gourmet chef's dream kitchen (thankfully we are not gourmet chefs; Malibu has plenty of those to choose from). Yes, you can hear people moving around upstairs, like you would with any multilevel apartment. But for us anyway, all of that was pretty minor compared to the experience of coming to Malibu and staying in a special space. We hiked in Tuna Canyon, we explored almost all of the sites that David and Ling recommended in their local guide, we drove to Santa Barbara, hung out in LA/Santa Monica, and we did paragliding off of a nearby canyon side (highly recommend!). These are memories we will not soon forget...the other minor stuff, we will.

    Sheree2018-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • David and Ling were extremely responsive to any questions we had. The house is lovely and exactly as described. We didn't cook much in the home, although the kitchen is well stocked if you wanted to make a meal. Use the guidebook they provide! It was extremely useful as this was our first trip to Malibu. We took long walks Carbon Beach, Broad Beach, and Point Dume State Park and admired the real estate. We ate at Duke's (twice for "wine Wednesday!") and Plate Malibu. We took a day trip to Ojai. The weather was a little on the cool side for Malibu so we didn't sit outside much, although the view from the inside was just as spectacular. The oranges on the tree were nearly ripe but that didn't stop us from having a few during our stay! My favorite part of each day was waking up to the sunrise. Words cannot describe how beautiful it is through the floor to ceiling glass windows. The home gets a little warm when the afternoon sun comes in so either pull the shades down or crack open the windows. The bathroom was plenty big and there was nice water pressure for the shower. We never ran out of hot water. All in all, we found David and Ling's place to be very welcoming and relaxing. It was just what we needed!

    Patty2016-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Eine tolle Unterkunft mit fantastischer Aussicht. Alles war so wie bei airbnb beschrieben und abgebildet. Die Küche und das Bad sind voll ausgestattet. Die Kommunikation mit den Gastgebern klappt einwandfrei und zügig. Es war unser erster Tripp mit airbnb und wir werden es sicher wiederholen.

    Have a backyard barbecue and eat at a shaded picnic table after exploring Abbot Kinney on bikes. Retreat indoors to a unique corner of paradise, decorated in eclectic beach chic. It’s a bright and airy cottage—a classic Craftsman with a modern twist.
    "Thea & George were awesome hosts and their place is absolutely amazing. It's a perfectly appointed private cottage tucked away on a quiet street on the back of their property. We wanted a place close to the beach but far enough away so as to not be in the middle of the action all the time - this place was the perfect medium." "Thea and George's cottage, set off a quiet road, is bright, clean, and cheerful. It's newly renovated, with great attention to detail, making for a relaxing stay. The location is a short walk to the main drag of Abbot Kinney, where you'll find lots of shops, cafes, restaurants, and the buzz of Venice. Overall, it's a beautiful flat and is recommended for anyone who wants a relaxing time in a great neighborhood with friendly, attentive hosts." This is a super-sweet cottage in the back of our property, perfect for a professional looking for a quiet place to come home to after a hard day's work, for a couple wanting some peace and quiet, or for a family with one or two small children. We've just renovated it, and furnished it with lots of love and care. We're one mile from Venice Beach, half a mile to the Venice Canals, and six blocks from the famous Abbot Kinney shopping street, with LA's trendiest boutiques and restaurants. The cottage is roomy and very bright, with five skylights and wood floors. It has a full kitchen, with fridge, toaster and 4-burner modern gas stove. The bedroom area can be closed off from the rest of the space by a semi-circular folding door, and it is furnished with a queen bed. The living area is spacious and bright, with a desk, fold-out couch and TV. The cottage has its own outdoor table and chairs with an umbrella, idyllically situated under a big bougainvillea vine. We provide: - linens, towels and beach towels - a full kitchen with pots and pans, tableware and some basic cooking staples (ketchup, oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, sugar, coffee, tea, etc.) - shampoo, conditioner, soap - two adult bikes (use at no charge, you fix them if they break) - wifi - there is ample free parking on the street, you just have to yield the street cleaning signs to avoid getting a ticket on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, 8-10am. Please read our other reviews to see what kind of hosts we are and to get an idea of the service we provide.
    Abbot Kinney has become the hottest boutique and restaurant destination on the West Side, and it's only six blocks away. The beach is only a mile away, with the famed Venice Canals halfway there.
  • We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage & loved riding the bikes down to the beach. The decor is cute but we felt a little exposed due to the lack of blinds in the cottage. The Check in and out was flawless and parking in the street tight but easy. There was coffee, tea etc in the cottage for us but no creamer which was disappointing to discover first thing when we were tired and in need of a hot drink - meant a quick early morning bike ride to shops for some milk. We never met George or Thea and when we found the bikes needed the seat moving and handle bars tightening we found out they lived about half an hour away (the bikes were one of the main selling points over other places on airbnb for us). We found some tools thanks to the people staying in the house and rectified this ourselves. They also informed us how to stop the bikes as we'd never seen bikes with no breaks! Overall we really enjoyed staying in the cottage, it's location and style. Venice beach is a MUST. Thanks for having us:)

    Samantha2015-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second Airbnb experience and it was wonderful. The cottage is located on a quiet one way residential street. I was able to walk and run to the beach everyday. Great location! Thea was available if I needed anything. I was traveling with two college students. We were very comfortable. The cottage is charming, well laid out and functional and very clean. The beds and bedding are very nice and comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Nora2015-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • We found everything perfectly prepared in the "sweetest Cottage". Helpful information was provided as well. The pictures show reality an we felt comfortable and safe. Although we did not meet our hosts in person, everything was just fine and very well organised.

    Ilka2014-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • George and Thea were so accommodating with their space — me and my partner arrived in LA at 2pm with no place to stay and then we were walking into George and Thea's at 3pm! The space is clean and so adorable. Parking is easy and the neighborhood is so cute. Would definitely book again and again.

    Meira2017-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect home away from home in a very safe neighborhood close to the hip Abbot Kinney Road. The space was bright and clean. The decor was delightful. The beds were super comfortable and it was handy to have a kitchen. Loved having bikes available for long rides to Santa Monica Pier. My first AIRBNB experience- it was fabulous.

    Dana2016-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage was so cute and perfect for my friend and I to stay in during our time in Venice! The location is ideal and I can't get over how cute the cottage was. This space comfortably fits 2 people but could fit up to 4 for sure. From the time we checked in the whole experience was seamless! Super close to abbot Kinney which is where we mostly hung out. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

    Nicole2015-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect. Just the right size for two people, adorably decorated, clean and bright, lovely quiet setting on a charming street full of colorfully brilliant homes, easy walk to Venice Beach, and the hosts were kind and communicative. I would absolutely recommend this little cottage.

    Sarah2015-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had one night in the cottage, and it was super nice. Way better looking than the pictures. We would definitely stay here again.

    Stylish detached guesthouse in the quiet Santa Monica neighborhood loaded with everything including 42in TV equipped with HBO NOW, private garage and patio, 2.8 mile from Santa Monica piers and minutes of walk with great restaurant, desert places, bus station, and Hulu bike rental (see my Guidebook) This property also has a self-checkin, so you can check in whenever you want after 3pm. Please DO NOT inquire me about long term rental. Thank you for your interest
    Brand new listing on Airbnb! Stylish detached rear studio guesthouse with modern design that include one private garage space. Enter from separate gated entrance. Very secluded, light, bright, lofted space with open floor plan. Fully furnished with everything you need including a walk-in closet, 4 stove kitchen area, full bath, and a large fridge. You will also have free high speed Verizon Fios wifi, HBO NOW on a 42in TV, a small dinner/working area, and 2 memory foam queen size beds plus a folded twin bed. 2.8 miles to Santa Monica Piers, 4 miles to Marina del rey and its baby sea lions, 6.6 miles to Culver city and its beautiful dinning streets, and 5 miles to UCLA main campus.
    Quiet and safe residential area. Santa Monica is generally speaking a safe place, and my area is consider to be safer than other areas. You can take a walk to the near by park whenever you feel like it.
  • The location is absolutely lovely; quiet and peaceful but still close to everything. The space itself is wonderfully clean and modern; I really appreciated the simple and sparse decor, as I didn't have to worry about my kid breaking someone else's knickknacks. The closet is very generously-sized and the shower was very comfortable, luxurious even. Having secure off-street parking is a huge plus, especially since we were parking bikes too. Mary was an excellent communicator, and very accommodating when she realized the construction work she'd scheduled during our stay conflicted with our kid's nap. My only caveat is that the kitchen is not stocked for cooking a full meal; but if you're just having some basic breakfast or microwave-based food, it's fine. Overall, it was a great place to stay and we would certainly recommend it!

    Deb2016-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Neat, tidy, comfortable space, within easy walking distance to food or any easy drive or bike ride to the beach and downtown Santa Monica. The comfy beds, lots of clean linens, kitchen space, good sized shower, and nice little patio all made our stay quite pleasant. Mary also provided excellent instructions for parking, entry, and fixture usage. Thank you, Mary, for a great stay on our first air bnb experience.

    Sabetha2017-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Mary's Spot was incredible. The entire place was spotless and clean. Check in was effortless and very private.

    Mahna2016-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, nice decor, great communication, and convenient location. Thank you Mary.

    Rachan2017-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very nice place- newly remodeled. Great location!

    Courtney2017-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We were pleased to find Mary's place modern, well appointed and extremely clean. There was plenty of clean linen and towels and the kitchen was well equipped. Communications were excellent. There was a very instructive guide sent to us prior to our visit which was really useful and, although we didn't meet Mary, whenever we had a issue she was responsive and helpful. Our only complaint was that the glass sliding doors, which are the entry point, had inadequate locks. They could have easily been forced (even by hand) and so we didn't feel comfortable leaving valuables inside the property. Additionally, the main entrance to the property is off a back alley although, having said this, Mary's place is situated in a very pleasant area of Santa Monica. When we spoke to Mary about the locks, she instructed her contractor to look into it.

    Mike2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Clean. Convenient. Mary does a good job

    Peter2017-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Mary's guesthouse was bright and spacious, as well as very modern and upkept. It was very clean and we were allowed much privacy. Mary was also very attentive to our concerns and was available for questions when needed. The guest house is a short, 10-15 minute drive from many popular attractions in Santa Monica, as well as in a very central location to drive to all other Los Angeles locations (yet still close enough to the water). Definitely an enjoyable stay!

    Rugged, beautiful landscape with picturesque mountain views and wide open cloudless blue skies. Magical hiking trails close by. It’s a perfect spot for people who love the outdoors, but also want to be close enough to the city. Beauty. Simplicity. Nature.
    TOP OF THE HILL ACRES will bring you an even more memorable experience this fall and winter. It's also Our favorite time of year. Beautiful sunsets to enjoy. We are still in a dry spell, high hazard fire zone at this time of year. The canyon weather is dry and we need to avoid any sparks of any kind. The morning sunrise warms the world around you and takes you into the twinkling stars at night. You can prepare meals on our outdoor barbecue and choose between outdoor dining or snuggling up amongst the cushions of the Moroccan nook. Two trailers are for our guests to enjoy. The smaller trailer provides a small kitchen including a fridge, toaster oven and kettle. The larger trailer awaits for a cozy night sleep. Please note: there is no electricity in the large trailer. Candle light, lantern, flashlight and fairy lights will help guide you. Planets and stars come out by the thousands, and the hoot of owls and the call of the mountain coyotes connects us to the beauty of nature. Limited wifi is avail for our guests to connect if needed.
    Great hiking trails in topanga. Awesome bird watching and home to our wild coyotes. ( they are harmless, just don't bring your cat) 15 minutes from the best California surfing and sandy beaches. Shopping is 10-15 minutes away. Topanga eclectic shopping and celebrations happening every weekend!!
  • Wonderful setting and Lydia couldn't have been more accommodating. We spent one night here with our two year old son. We look forward to coming back in Spring / Summer. Great weekend getaway

    Kelly2015-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect getaway! Lydia immediately made my husband and I feel like we had known her for years. She was incredibly helpful, informative and friendly, but was still super respectful and gave us plenty of space. The pictures and descriptions are totally accurate, in fact it's more beautiful in person. It was pretty chilly when we were there, but had plenty of blankets to cozy up under, the fire pit definitely came in handy. We will absolutely be back, for anyone who is looking for a very romantic, quiet, rustic weekend, you can't miss this!

    Jodie2015-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • just PERFECT !

    Norah 2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful and secluded but just plan on wearing long pants and long sleeves to bed. We got eaten alive by mosquitos. Also, it's an outhouse. A nice one, but an outhouse. This place is great to get off the grid in a major city.

    Whitney2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you haven't booked this place yet, book it. Just do it. The pictures don't do it justice. Lydias place is beyond gorgeous and exactly what my wife and I were looking for. No cell reception and away from everything. We were so bummed that we only stayed one night. One tip I must say is to make sure you bring fire wood for the fire pit and definitely have a night in. You have to experience the twinkle lights, fire, and stars at night. We can't wait to go back!

    Sam2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here was a dream. Lydia and her family (pups included!) were exceptional hosts, making us feel cozy and at home. The space is beautiful, peaceful & simple... perfect for a getaway.

    Alyson2016-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! The owner was extremely nice and helpful. I would recommend anyone stay here if they enjoy a beautiful view in a cozy atmosphere.

    Sophia2016-12-19T00:00:00Z

    Our home is located near Venice Beach without being in the middle of the "craziness" and also close to LAX. The Hobbit House is a newly built structure which you will LOVE! The smell of the wood and the fact that you are sleeping covered by mother earth gives it a very special vibe.
    All the little spaces in our backyard make our home very special and unique. You might meet other Airbnb Guests and enjoy some sun in our serene backyard, which we call our outside living room...
    Our neighborhood is very quiet and save. There is a shopping mall area with movie theaters and grocery stores about 10 minute walk from our house. If you go the other direction there are many little eateries, where you can indulge in various cultural foods such as Sushi, Vegan Thai Food, Mexican and much more. We are close to everything. It's great for biking to the beaches and walking distance to the marina shopping mall. the 90 fwy provides easy access to many places.
  • Amazing location. Everything was better than expected

    Mary J.2018-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Hobbit House was a nice place to stay close to Venice Beach with a really relaxing, welcoming atmosphere. We can highly recommend a stay here!!

  • Really cool place and a good meeting point for people all over the world. Clean and comfortable.

    Martin2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • The hobbit house is a different Airbnb with a fun personality. About a 20 min. Walk from the Marina Del Ray Marina and 15 minutes to the airport. I didn’t realize when booking that the bathroom and shower were disconnected from the house, but since the sun was shining it was ok.

  • This was an awesome little experience with tons of sweet little moments of IG worthiness and a quiet place to relax my brain while feeling like I was glamping and in a far off world when in reality you are right in Venice. Highly recommend and will be visiting again.

    Evelyn2017-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the Hobbit House for 2 nights and it was just as pictured! Beautiful, felt like we were glamping. I would recommend this to everyone. Shops and restaurants aren't as close as we would like and Venice Beach is a trek but the stay here was great!

    A peaceful Venice retreat. Located in a quiet neighborhood with easy street parking but still close to the action. Note: your room and bathroom are private but the common areas are shared. A short walk to organic market, coffee shops, restaurants, and Costco. A short ride to world-famous Venice Beach, Abbot Kinney, and the Venice Canals. You’ll love our place because of the location, the ambiance, and the people. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    We're excited to share our home with you and we've set up our place to have everything you'll need. It is a three-bedroom home with frontyard, a lemon and orange tree, and lots of beautiful succulents. We live on-site but are respectful of your space. There is easy keypad entry, a beverage station with (coffee & tea) and a mini fridge in the main area. We hope you'll enjoy the home and neighborhood as much as we do - we look forward to hosting you!
    We love this neighborhood! We are located just a mile from Abbot Kinney, straight up Venice blvd with Washington Blvd to the south and Lincoln blvd to the west. We are a couple blocks from our favorite organic market, Rainbow Acres as well as many other great restaurants and bars. On Sundays, the Mar Vista farmers market takes place just a mile up the road as well as the Venice High School flea market every second Sunday. With all the action of Venice Blvd, Lincoln Blvd and Washington Blvd, it is still very quiet and feels like a true neighborhood. We wouldn't live anywhere else!
  • My girlfriend and I absolutely loved their place! Elliott and Kat allowed us to check in early and were easy to communicate with. A short, and cheap uber got us there in no time! Upon arrival, and stepping into their lovely house it was identical to the photos on their description. The master bedroom was huge and not to mention the bed comfortable, and had everything we needed. The room and the private bathroom were very clean, and you can tell that Elliott and Kat are great hosts. Whilst we never saw either of them, the place was set up exactly as outlined and they are quick to communicate with any minor hiccups! I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    • Studio is small, approx 10x12 ft (3x3.5 meters) • Manicured backyard with rose garden • Detached from main house • Hardwood floors inside • Plenty of street parking • Separate walk-in closet area • 1 block to Larchmont Village, coffee shops, restaurants • Extremely safe neighborhood • Within the private compound of a Hancock Park residence (I live in the main house, detached from yours), you have private access through the back yard. • No pool use, apologies.
    First things first: the studio is SMALL, measuring approx 10 feet X 12 feet. After that you will be enchanted by the charm and location of it all. Impeccably styled with a unique LA flair and set within the private compound of a Hancock Park residence. You have private access through the back yard. Amazing rose garden just outside apt. Property is safe and secured. A one block walk to all the amenities of Larchmont Village, coffee shops and restaurants abound, which is a good thing because the kitchen here is small as well. If you are looking to do gourmet cooking, you may want to look elsewhere. If you're the type where boiling water is a challenge, this is the place for you! A short walk for morning coffee and anything else you will need is so close by. Having said that, the TINY kitchen is equipped with basic necessities. There is a separate walk in closet area perfect to store luggage clothes, etc. TV in room, OK to watch Netflix and anything online. Also please note: no pool use and no smoking ANYWHERE on property.
    Hancock Park was built and developed in the 1920's for the wealthy and the neighborhood is now historically protected...walk down any of the streets and be amazed at the homes, landscaping and overall charm of the neighborhood, truly one of the best places to live in LA. You will pinch yourself, it really is incredible.
  • This was a wonderful experience for my first AirBNB. Everything was as described. Clean and well kept. The mini kitchen was perfect, as was the extra closet space. Steve was super friendly. The restaurants down the street were fantastic! Next time I'm in LA, I'm staying here again! Thank you, Steve!

    Michael2017-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • The place was cozy and clean. It was a well thought out place complete with a kitchen, a full bathroom, comfy bed, heating and A/C and a small space that could be used as a closet. Steve provided toiletries, extra towels, window shades, dishes, etc. Wonderful location and quiet neighborhood. Will certainly stay again when visiting LA next time if Steve's place is available.

    Janis2017-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location. Steve was amazing and very responsive. Everything is as described. Plenty of places to walk to grab coffee or meals. Very easy parking situation. Beautiful neighborhood to walk around. Highly recommend this location!

    Alejandra2017-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Hip, comfy pool house in a walkable, trendy neighborhood. We would definitely stay in Steve's spot if we visited again!

    Jason2016-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here! The bed was amazing (I literally messaged the host to figure out where it was from), the space was meticulously decorated, and the private entry to the pool house through the driveway was fantastic. I saw some people negatively commented about the step into the shower- it’s basically nothing and really not something I thought about so shouldn’t be a concern unless you’re 6’6.

    Marie2018-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Steve's pool house was the perfect home base for our weekend trip to LA! The space was clean, well-appointed, and has beautiful design touches. The neighborhood is quiet, centrally located, and has several great local amenities a short walking distance up Larchmont. This is a great spot for solo travelers and couples and is a great value! We would definitely stay here again!

    Adam2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Top verblijf!

    Marie2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, amazing location! Breakfast recommendations were very helpful and our 2 year old son really enjoyed the outside space. We loved the style of the apartment, it made our stay in LA very special. We will definitely book again!

    Beautiful PRIVATE TROPICAL Guest House in Topanga Canyon! Look up Cody Simpson & Ziggy Marley's video, "Love" on You Tube for video of property! 1 NIGHT STAYS ARE $225/NIGHT. MSG 4 INFO, NO DISCOUNTS on 1 night stays. Weekly & Monthly rates available, rates depend on season -- please inquire for long term stays. Rates vary per season & day of week -- please enter dates in calendar for pricing, rate as shown on listing is base rate! PLEASE READ ENTIRE DETAILS/LISTING BEFORE MESSAGING.
    Hello! Welcome! Please read my entire listing before messaging, as I have comprehensive coverage for most all questions! Additionally, I do adhere to all of my rules & guidelines! No exceptions! Rules are: 2 guest maximum, no pets, no children of any age, no self check in, no visitors during your stay, etc.. The AirBnB app does not show what I do not allow, only what I do! Please check this listing on a desktop computer, so you understand what I do allow/do not allow before messaging. No parties/events/weddings on my property. HOME DETAILS: Come relax up in Topanga & get away! 1 Bedroom Guest House located in the Heart of the canyon for nightly & weekly rentals! The entire property has waterfalls, ponds & a tropical themed environment. The guest house has 1 queen sized bed & can accommodate a maximum of two guests comfortably. There is also a kitchenette with mini fridge, stovetop, complete with coffee maker & filters, dishes/pots/pans & washer/dryer on site (the washer/dryer is for stays of 5+ days). Unit does not have A/C, but has ceiling fans in the bedroom, along with sliding glass & screen doors in each room allowing for ventilation. PARKING: 1 carport parking spot is available, along with extra parking along the road. The road is paved, but has no sidewalks alongside. CELL PHONE & INTERNET: Wireless internet is available, along with a cell signal booster. Reception can be spotty up in the mountains, and is not guaranteed; although most all guests have not had issues. NEIGHBORHOOD: Topanga is a charming, countryside neighborhood adjacent to Los Angeles & very safe. I've lived here for over 30 years, and never had any issues. COMMUTE: My house is about 15 minutes drive from Santa Monica, 20 minutes from Malibu & 15 minutes to Woodland Hills, 30 minutes to LAX. Without traffic, I'm about 35 minutes from Hollywood, 40 minutes from downtown, 25 minutes to West Los Angeles/Culver City. To get a better idea of commute, I'm central in Topanga, so if you check a map for Topanga, CA & get directions from there, you'll be able to estimate distances. ARE THERE ANIMALS ON THE PROPERTY? No. I do not allow any animals in the guest house, nor are there any on the property (for allergy & personal health needs, I cannot allow animals on the property). For those who need petsitting: LADogma is a great local option where dogs stay comfortably in a home in Topanga. Just look up "LADogma" for more info. IS THIS A FAMILY RENTAL? My rental is Adults Only - No children of any age allowed (including infants)! Due to a unique property structure, with many stone stairways, ponds, firepit, size of guest house, etc., I remain firm on my policy of (2) adult guests maximum per stay. Many families try to message me asking for an exception; but I do remain firm on this rule, due to liability & safety concerns. I'm happy to host just parents for a romantic getaway, though! ACCESSIBILITY: There are several long flights of stone steps leading up to the guesthouse. This shouldn't be a problem for most people (and i'm happy to help with luggage), but if you have trouble with stairs, this may not be the place for you. I've had multiple pregnant women manage the stairs late in their term, but these stairs may also be a concern for pregnant women on bed rest. SENSITIVE? Sheets are 100% cotton, 600 thread count - I use all natural laundry detergents, for those of you with allergy concerns! I also provide organic soaps, all cotton towels & robes. Please do let me know if you have allergies though, so I can be extra scent-sitive! SURFING? If you'd like this to be a surf getaway, I'm happy to loan you one of my boards with your security deposit acting as collateral! I have kayaks & stand-up paddle boards available for use - but note that you'll need a truck or SUV to get them down to the beach (I don't allow guests to tie the boards to a standard car, even with a roof rack - I don't want my boards to be damaged). I've been surfing & diving for many years locally, and would be happy to give you some pointers on location, etc.. PHOTOGRAPHER? If you are a photographer looking to use my property as a location for a shoot, please note that I don't include shoots as part of a "package" deal when staying at the guest house. If you try to sneak a shoot on my property, this will result in a negative rating, possible immediate ejection from my property and/or loss of security deposit! Please mention any relevant photography in your message, as I would require that we arrange a shoot outside of AirBnB. I use my properties as locations, so a location fee would be required, along with standard insurance, etc.. If you'd like to take a few casual snapshots on my property for strictly personal use, that's fine.
    FUN FACT: As featured in Cody Simpson's music video, "Love." (URL HIDDEN) LOCAL POINTS OF INTEREST: AirBnB does a great job of covering Topanga! Check out their location guide here: https://www.airbnb.com/locations/los-angeles/topanga Topanga State Beach is an 8 minute drive & Topanga State Park is about a 5 minute drive. In Topanga, there are many hiking trails, some with eight thousand year-old Indian caves & waterfalls. Mimosa Cafe is the village coffee shop, which is a 10 minute hike down the hill. Just across the way from Mimosa, there is a natural foods store & a little mini market. Santa Monica & Malibu are a beautiful 15 minute drive along Pacific Coast Highway. Suggested local restaurants would be Inn of the Seventh Ray, Froggy's & Cholada Thai food. Great restaurants in Malibu are Geoffrey's, Nobu Sushi & Cafe Habana. The closest large grocery store is a Von's Market, located on Sunset Blvd. There's also a natural foods market & deli in Malibu, named PC Greens. Additionally, a local raw smoothie & juice bar has opened recently, about a 5 minute drive from my place called Topanga Living Cafe in Topanga!
  • Darrel's "Pirate's of the Carribean" Getaway is a true Gem. It's literally like stepping into a magical world. Every detail is so well executed and thoughtful into making your experience memorable. Darrel is one of the coolest and inspiring people we have met and we plan on going back as much as much as possible. It's rare you get to step into and experience someone's art like Darrel's. The place was clean, super comfortable and perfect for a QUIET weekend getaway for 2. Enjoy! PS Don't forget to check out his store in Town "Hidden Treasure's" Its amazing!

    Lauren2013-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is simply amazing. It's like staying in magical forest, Darrell is such a great host. His property is so beautiful and so many fun details around the property. His lights make the place into a magical wonderland at night.. it's awesome. He is also very helpful with advice of what to see in the area. The bungalow is cute ,clean, great bed & shower and has everything you need. I loved this place, didn't want to leave. It is like something you'd see on a HGTV show, I can't say enough great things about Darrell and his beautiful place.

    Daniel2013-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great time at Darrell's Airbnb! He was extremely helpful and accommodating and the space is incredibly fun, relaxing and unique.

    Toby2015-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great time, went hiking everyday in the State park, saw a rattlesnake up close. Weather was very cooperative. Great place to chill. Very conveniently located to Malibu. Darrell was accomodating. We pickd oranges in the back yard, had a nice bbq one evening and listened to nature all around us.

    Edward 2016-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing spot! So beautiful, we had the best time!

    Erin2017-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I came and had my birthday weekend here.. It's serious the coolest place I have ever stayed in my life. He has thought of everything and there's so much detail.. We enjoyed the hammock and the teepee and the swinging chairs. Even the bed is insanely Comfortable. I will highly recommend this place to all of my friends. The tiki decor is amazing. I feel like I'm on a private island or something. Thanks Darrel for such a high quality and unique air bnb

    Haley2016-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • the Pirates of the Carribean Getaway is a dream and Darrell was a perfect host. Only a 10 minute drive from the beach (Malibu) and less then 20 minutes from LA, but so quiet and surrounded by nature, Topanga is the most wonderfull area to stay. The fairy-tale garden (at night, with all the colourfull lights), the cozy cottage, on the mountains, in the woods, it all made an unforgettable stay.

    Robert2013-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Darrell's canyon hideaway is the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the greater LA area! He has spent the last 37 years lovingly tending to his domain and it shows. The grounds are lushly landscaped and his attention to detail is impressive. He is friendly and willing to answer any questions about his design style and process. If you need a little dose of reality, Malibu and Santa Monica are just a short drive away. We really enjoyed our quiet time here at the Pirate Oasis! Darrell, thanks for giving us a full tour of your beautiful property - we left with many design ideas for our home back in Miami Beach.

  • The loft was great, the location was even better than we expected. We were very happy with our stay here! This was our first airbnb experience and was a great start to our trip.

    Helen2013-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and great place to stay! John was very friendly and a great host! Definitely recommended and we love to come back soon! :)

    Duc Dung2014-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Felt super at home and safe in this neighbourhood. Spent New Years here, everything was found exactly as explained. No fuss beautiful accommodation in a great fun neighbourhood. Would definitely stay again!

    Maree2015-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I had an amazing stay at John's cute little loft in Venice. The loft itself is small, but perfect for a short term stay. The cute kitchenette has everything you need, the bed is really comfortable and linens provided were lovely too. John even provides you with beach towels, beach umbrella and beach matts. Everything you really need for a stay at the beach. Location is amazing. Just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and all the action of the beach front walk. Super close to the venice sign and a short 10 minute stroll to the amazing Venice canals. Uber was a great way to get around to other locations and I never had to wait more that 2 mins for one to arrive. Only about $5 to Whole Foods or Santa Monica Pier. I didn't get to meet John in person, but he was fantastic with communication, always getting back to me within minutes and was always really helpful. I loved this apartment. I would have no issues recommending it to others and will definitely stay there again when I return to LA next year. Thank you, John.

    Sheree2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Didn't meet the host but the place was nice. Cute older building, very clean, and the loft was easy to access. One star off for difficulty of parking on a weekday night - it was impossible to find anywhere to park within several blocks, although I eventually found a spot that turned to metered, one-hour parking at 8 am. A great place to stay if you're not using a car.

    Jen2015-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • John was great. He was communicative and flexible. The loft is beautiful. Super clean and very close to the beach and Abbot Kinney. This was the perfect end to our California vacation.

    My house has two bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a nice outdoor patio and garden. The neighborhood is safe, centrally located, and has good public transportation. Perfect for students and visitors. No animals or smoking please.
    The neighborhood is safe and pretty quiet. It is also close to many other LA hotspots--Santa Monica, Culver City, Koreatown, LAX, and downtown.
  • Angela is a most gracious host and the description of her home is very accurate. She is most helpful and accommodating. Her home is tidy and clean. I felt at home immediately. The house is located where one can easily take several bus lines. I would love to visit again. There is plenty to do in this area of Los Angeles and the house is easy to find-it is located between two freeways which make getting around LA easier. I would highly recommend Angela´s home to anyone visiting Los Angeles. There is a good wifi connection and a nice cable TV set in the room with lots of channels. But the best part of the deal is Angela- she is most kind and helpful.

    Julián2015-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Excelente anfitriona se siente un ambiente cálido y te apoya en todo momento. Buena ubicación y barrio tranquilo con facilidad de acceso a centro comerciales.

    Carlos2015-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Angela was an amazing host. She went the extra mile to make sure I had everything I needed, including doing my washing. Angela is very friendly and caring, the room, bed and amenities were very comfortable - definitely suggest staying here!

    Jen2017-02-04T00:00:00Z

    Jonathan2014-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • I was a single woman traveling alone, with no car and not for one second I was feeling insecure or limited! First of all all, Angie(my Angel) made me feel like I was home. Cozy, comfortable, I had everything I need it! Wi-fii, air conditioning, cable, access to the kitchen, to all the basics (seasoning, butter, towels, and washing machine) she even made space for me in the fridge so I could have back up stuff! You have a CVS (pharmacy), a Joes' farmer (little fresh and organic products) on Palms & corner Sepulveda. Also a BK and Pizza Hut for some greasy or cheaper craving's ;) The bus 733(to Santa Monica) goes straight to Venice beach or Santa Monica beaches. Walking, there is a 7 eleven on the corner of Palms and Overland. There is an ''In and Out burger" a "Taco Bell" on Venice (take the 733 or 33 buses to Los Angeles Downtown) brings you there! That same bus also gets you to a ''Ross'' to another ''CVS'' pharmacy and also to the Culver city metro station, to downtown L.A. Angela’s place is so beautiful (just like her) I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to L.A!!! La quiero mucho Angie!!!!

    Our oceanfront Malibu beach pad is directly on the water and boasts unobstructed ocean views. Enough space to comfortably sleep 4 - 6! You are next door to a celebrity hot spot. Ultimate Malibu experience. Wake up to dolphins and fall asleep to waves! Steps from the building down below to the private wet beach . Walk a bit north to Malibu's best kept secret, a private beach a half a football field long and wide, with expansive dry sand even on high tide. South Malibu close to Santa Monica !
    Directly on the ocean - impossible to be closer to the water without getting wet. This is the way you need to experience Southern California! A wonderful oceanfront beach condo with 2 comfortable queen size beds and 1 big clean bathroom with spacious kitchen, living room, and balcony hovering the Pacific Ocean. Free reserved parking! Top Rated Restaurant 30 seconds walking. Our place is very unassuming from the outside, but when you enter, you are transported to an amazing oceanfront experience. The living room, kitchen, dining area have a great indoor/outdoor feeling to them and this is where we like to spend most of our time when we are home. We have a sweet sun deck where you can catch some sun, enjoy a drink, or just lose yourself in the sights, smells, and sounds of the ocean. Our place has a modular design that has the entrance into the bedroom and the rest of the space utilizing the killer ocean view. It has one bedroom and one full bathroom. We LOVE to travel and love having our friends stay with us so have tried to design the place to maximize sleeping solutions for guests. The bedroom has two queen size beds. The bathroom is not huge but it is clean and has a nice shower with good water pressure. There is a big sectional as well as a comfortable queen size air bed. There is a dining table with an unbeatable ocean view that isn’t available at Nobu unless you are a celebrity! Our home has a well equipped kitchen with enough cookware to cook a basic meal ingredients not included. The deck has a big sectional as well as a picnic table and can easily seat several people outside! Our place is not brand new, does not have brand new furniture, or is what we would describe as a luxury accommodation. It is best suited for well seasoned travelers who love the ocean and are looking to be as close to the water as possible. This is our home and we love living in Malibu. We have met travelers from all over the world, and people love visiting this area. That being said, people have expectations, and we want to ensure that we meet or exceed our guest’s expectations. Because our place is directly on the water, that comes with some realities. Salt water is a beast that knows no equal. This means there might be some surface rust on the exterior and metal fixtures of our home. There might be some sand, ocean spray, or other things you might find on a beach, on the deck. You might hear the traffic noise on PCH. This comes with the territory of living directly on the ocean. If these things bother you, please don't book our house. We don't want you to have a negative experience, and we don't want you to give us a negative experience. We have a professional cleaning service that details and sanitizes our entire home before and after every guest. In Summary - if you are looking for an amazing and unbeatable view of the ocean, clean towels, fresh linens, a great internet connection, and a top notch location, we’d love to have you! Brief Disclaimer: If you generally stay in the Four Seasons or prefer 5 star hotels, we suggest you keep looking. Please note the house is directly on the water right off Pacific Coast Highway! Part of what makes the experience so cool, the views so enticing, and the sounds of the ocean so real! But if you are expecting a mile long sandy beach, that's not what this is. We live on a wet beach that is very dependent on the tide level. Important Notes : This is a rental that is professionally cleaned before and after each guest. While there main be some blemishes, imperfections, scuffs, rust etc., the place is comfortable, extremely well located, and thoroughly enjoyed by 99.9% of our guests. If you are expecting a hotel, brand new furniture, brand new fixtures and fittings, etc., please do not book our home. Our home is directly on the water and will experience rust on the exterior and interior metal fixtures. Please do not be alarmed but if this is going to be an issue, we recommend looking further away from the salt water of the Pacific Ocean. It is not going to be well suited for any high-maintenance guests. We want guests who are able to enjoy the culture and vibe of the LA beach bum experience that we create. Due to sanitary and hygienic purposes, we do not provide wash cloths.
    Our place is close to Santa Monica, Venice and Muscle Beach. Million Dollar Mansions all around. Truly the best area of LA
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The house is exactly as described and the location is perfect. The best part of course is the view.

    Valentina & Pierre2018-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    Jerrod2018-05-13T00:00:00Z

    Patrizia2017-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to experience staying literally on the beach this is the place! No need for a soundtrack - open the deck doors!! Great place in Malibu. Would strongly recommend! A++++

    Kelly2018-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • The description is very accurate. We visited for a girls' staycation in Malibu and it was perfect for that. All we wanted to do was stare at the ocean and relax and it was a fantastic spot to enjoy the waves and watch dolphins. We spent all our time on the deck reading, eating and chatting, wifi worked well, beds were really comfortable and bathroom was very clean and nice. It is right off the PCH, which can be a bit precarious entering and exiting, but otherwise location is great. I'd definitely stay again!

    Katie2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect place for us to stay right on the ocean. The apartment has that beach feel, and the views and sounds of the Pacific were one of a kind. The road noise was surprisingly quiet for being right on PCH. Stephen was a great host, very responsive to any questions that came up, provides a detailed manual with local recommendations, and checking in and out was easy. Highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for a Malibu beachfront experience!

    In addition to a private bedroom and huge en suite bathroom, enjoy the shared patio with barbecue and fire pit. Unwind on the back patio of this bright West Los Angeles home featuring an indoor fireplace and vaulted ceilings in the common room.
    The room is bright and sunny in the day and cozy at night. There is a private in-suite bathroom, TV, closet and shelves. There is super comfy king bed and an air mattress or pack n play upon request. The bathroom is very modern and large with a walk-in shower and double sinks. There are three bedrooms/bath room suites in this house, one is mine, the other two I rent to guests. On weekends that I travel, I rent my room as well! Each room is its own bedroom and bath room combo, the common areas are spacious with plenty of quiet space!
    West Los Angeles is very walkable. The home is in a single family neighborhood There are grocery stores and restaurants within a mile of the house, and Santa Monica pier and beach are nearby. Plenty of free street parking within a block of the house.
  • とても清潔で広々とした家で、センスもあり、過ごしやすかったです。 場所もサンタモニカから車で15分ほどの場所で観光にも適していました。 ベッドもアメリカのクイーンサイズで、友人と2人で寝ても余裕のスペースでした。 チェックアウトの日に朝6時に家を出なければならず、ご挨拶できず残念でしたが、また機会があればぜひ泊まりたいです。 ありがとうございました。

    Miki2018-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • The home Valerie and Blair provide is clean, modern, and comfortable. There are a plethora of food and drink options in the area and there is easy access to other pedestrian friendly areas of LA. Highly recommend staying with Valerie.

  • I had the honor of meeting Valerie’s husband and Brother-in-law while in town. Great conversation - very welcoming too. Street parking was abundant and easy to find a place close by. Great experience all around!

    Emily2018-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Valerie & Blair Rock! The house is beautiful. The hosts are kind, considerate and gracious and it just feels like coming home... to an awesome home! Thank you so much for opening your hearts and home! Yeah!!

    Rachel2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had an exceptional stay here! The room and home are even more beautiful than we thought--by far the best Airbnb we've stayed at! The bed was super comfortable, the bathroom clean and spacious, and our nights quiet and peaceful. The location is a short drive to the beach or a nice long but easy stroll. We really appreciated how responsive Valerie and her husband were. I'd recommend this place over and over again!

    Emily2018-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Casa muy bonita y acogedora. A 15 minutos de la playa de Santa Mónica en coche. Lugar muy tranquilo. Habitación con baño propio, y el resto de la casa compartido con otros huéspedes. Muy recomendable!

  • Valerie and Blair were great hosts. Communication was clear from the beginning and their place was beautiful. Room + bathroom was spacious, clean, and comfortable, exactly what we were looking for. We had the opportunity to meet Blair in person and he was really pleasant and friendly. Highly recommended, we would not hesitate to stay here again!

    Samantha2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Valerie & Blairs's place is the place to stay if you're looking for a house that feels like home. Their place was always clean, they were available 24/7 to answer any questions & overall super friendly people. Would definitely recommend staying here. I know I'll definitely be booking with them again when I come back to LA.

    A beautiful 2-bedroom Malibu beach house on a private beach with doors that open onto a 70ft.-long deck! Waterfall shower heads with glass walls that separates shower from bathroom. Second bathroom also has separate shower and a jacuzzi.
    Welcome to this beautiful 2-bedroom Malibu beach house on a private beach with doors that open onto a 70ft.-long deck! The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and an entrance to a bathroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds, which can be made into a king. Also has an entrance to the second bathroom. The master bathroom has walls and floors studied and designed for the beach and waterfall shower heads with glass walls that separates shower from bathroom. Second bathroom also has separate shower and a jacuzzi. The house has hardwood floors and glass doors opening onto the deck that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The dining table is a polished concrete counter-top. Gorgeous! May be rented for entertainment or for just relaxing at the beach. It's on one of the best beaches of Malibu, close enough to the center so that you can easily dine our, but far away enough to feel isolated from the world!
  • My stay at Angie's Malibu beach house was overall a great stay. I spent 2 wonderful days at the home. The home sits right on the beach and is decorated very nicely, it's cute and quant. The house was fully furnished and had just about everything I needed. The lights actually all worked for me, though the switches and outlets may be in odd hard to find places. The only negative feedback I have is that there weren't any small towels, the price is different on the weekends than the listed rate, and there weren't any personal stairs down to the beach. Other than that Angie was a great host that responded quickly.

    Damien2016-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a gorgeous scenic property! Directly on the beach with a huge deck to gaze at the ocean.

    Christine2013-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • The host made everything easy. Access and other things were exactly as described. No surprises. The house was as I expected- clean, stylish, comfortable, situated RIGHT on the ocean. It would have been nice to have some very basic things in the house- like salt for cooking, small bars of soap. It was a nice stay, and this is minor, but it would have made things a bit easier. We had a nice time.

    Jason2015-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • Angie was sweet. Her place is flat out awesome. Luxury baby! On the ocean, like literally ON ThE OCEAN. Dreamy.

    Hayd2015-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this place. If you are lucky enough to have stumbled across the listing on this site and it is in the right area and price range for you, go no further! As so many of the other reviews state, you can’t beat the sound of the waves crashing against the shore, lulling you to sleep. The fresh sea air is just wonderful (it wasn’t overly windy or cold when we went in June), watching the dolphins swim by is such a delight and the occasional “hot” surfer is also a delight to behold. The beach is very private with hardly any ‘traffic” and for people taking children, I should imagine the decking is perfect for you to keep an eye on the kids whilst they are playing on the beach. The photos on airbnb represent the house very well. It was very handy that the beach house had a washer and tumble dryer, this ensures that not one bit of your holiday is wasted sat in a laundry. There isn’t much to do in Malibu to be honest but for us it was more a blessing than a curse. When we wanted more action (than just lying in the sun) Santa Monica is only about 15-20 minute drive down the coast, Moonshadows bar/restaurant is within walking distance (which we would recommend – food good, staff friendly, good vibe). Hollywood, The Getty Centre, Universal studios, Rodeo Drive are about 45 minutes away from the house, but its an easy drive (just get on Sunset Boulevard and stay on it), meandering through the stunning mansions. Fabulous. I really feel lucky that I found this place, it was everything that we hoped it would be and more. The host supplies several towels (certainly enough for 3 girls for a week!) so no need to worry about packing a towel. Hand on heart I don’t think that you can go wrong with this place. Its really beautiful, I will be going back. One tip I would give…. Confirm the key pad number before you go as it wasn’t what had been given on the original booking details. Angie/Eleni were very helpful but this may just prevent you from having to contact them at 10pm which we had to! Enjoy!

    Philippa2012-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was just a wonderful place right on the sand with great oceanviews from all the rooms. The sound of the waves was very relaxing. Angie's house was very tastefully decorated and just a pleasure to stay at. Having the beach as your front yard made for fun activities for family and friends.

    maritza2013-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house by the ocean. I will never forget the time we have spent.house is like as its seen on the pictures.Angie was helpful and always responded in a short time.Hope to be there in the future.Great place to enjoy Malibu and the ocean.

    Mert2014-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The description was great. The location was amazing, exactly what we were looking for. The sound of the waves on the deck was spectacular.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Tiffany and Janin's apartment. It is an incredibly spacious home with everything you would ever need, and more (a peach tree grows in the front yard!). Aside from the clean, bright and spacious apartment you are one block from the beach and a five minute walk from everything on abbot Kinney or in Venice. There are bikes there if you want to go further down towards Santa Monica and a parking space if you have a car. Tiffany and Janin are very communicative and even checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend staying here.

    Holly2014-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is just amazing, the location is 2 mn walk from the beach and the house is very practical and very well decorated. We had a very pleasant stay in Venice thanks to Tiffany & Janice

    Fred2015-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Your beach house was the perfect getaway for my friends and myself. We had a great time and felt so comfortable. Being right next to the beach and having all the beach amenities (towels, chairs, etc) was great too! I would definitely stay again!

    Temi2014-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • The space was wonderful, clean, and much larger than I expected. The hosts were very communicative and the check-in manual made it very easy to get to the property. The bed was very comfortable, and the neighborhood was awesome! 1/2 block from the beach and venice boardwalk. There was a phenomenal little front yard with a patio set that I wish I could've taken advantage of. Overall, 100% will stay here again when I come back.

    Aaron2015-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at the house a lot. Excellent location ,just few steps from the beach and you can find all you need for comfortable holiday. The hosts are super frienly and helpful. Very nice house . I do recommend it to everyone.

    Natalie2014-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying in this nice house. Tiffany provided all the instructions in advance. House is located near one of nicest beach in California. I loved the collection of magazines they had. Sunroom was awesome, spent quiet a bit time watching birds & butterflies in the front yard. We would love to come back.

    Shilpi2015-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place is charming and unique, a very artsy vibe. Our host was very nice and replied quickly to questions we had about restaurants, grocery, etc. It is steps away from the beach yet quiet because it is tucked back a bit.

    Rachna2016-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • It's a good place cause it's just one knock to the see, we didn't go to beach since one of our friend got injured. Room is big and nice

    Menan2017-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous home, great location, all the necessary amenities and then some, spotlessly clean AND Vince is the perfect host, quick to respond to questions and makes sure you enjoy your stay. Highly recommend!

    Stephen2018-07-09T00:00:00Z

    Channon2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place! The amenities are wonderful and it’s very modern but cozy.

    Erica2018-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Vince's place was amazing! Beautiful concrete floors, beautiful professional style kitchen, amazing home and pool! There was four young woman in my party and it was perfect for us. I was blown away by the amenities and how large the pool was! And deep too! The home was so beautifully clean! Not a spot anywhere. The bathroom has an amazing corner shower and the living room and bedroom have strong AC units if needed. There are actually 4 different seating areas outside. Vince was so quick to respond and he reached out a number of times to check on us. Plenty of clean lobbies and towels to keep four long haired women set for 4 days. I will be going back!

    Beautiful single apartment: Venice Beach walk street, 1/2 block to Beach & Boardwalk; Walk or Bike to Main Street, Santa Monica Pier, Abbot Kinney. Easy citywide bus access! Come enjoy Venice Beach like a local! (Bikes and Beach stuff available)
    Our Cabana Room is a charming small single apartment with full bath and kitchenette, nestled in the back yard of our 110 year old original Venice Craftsman home. The room is Cozy and secluded, but only 1/2 a block from all the action on the Venice Boardwalk and the surf and sun on Venice Beach. There is a small kitchenette with fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker (coffee, tea, hot chocolate and a variety of creamers are provided). Sony HD TV with Verizon cable input. Private full bath with shower and antique claw foot tub. The Comfortable Queen Size Bed has a therapeutic foam mattress with 400 count hotel quality sheets and comforter. Indoor table opens up to make a nice space to work or eat (chairs are in the closet). Having trouble sleeping? The Sleep Machine provides white noise for a restful nights sleep (or there are earplugs in the bathroom cabinet). There is also a table with an umbrella right outside the door to enjoy your morning coffee of a glass of wine in the evening.

    Venice is a wonderfully livelyand eclectic community with countless restaurants, bars, and small, boutique store (not to mention Starbucks and Coffee Bean) in walking or biking distance. The Venice Boardwalk is the 2nd biggest tourist attraction in Southern California. With its collection of local artists, street vendors and street performers it is always entertaining. You can also stroll along the beach, swim or lay on the sand and enjoy the amazing sunsets! If you are visiting Los Angeles coming to Venice Beach and seeing the Boardwalk is a MUST! Staying on Venice Beach is even better!!
  • Megan was very nice and hospitable! She and her husband were very courteous and welcoming owners, and were quite organized as they left a guidebook of sorts to help answer any questions we may have had. The cabana was slightly smaller than I had anticipated, and got quite hot inside, but it is nestled right outside Venice Beach which made the walk over not extensive at all! The cabana is around all sorts of bars and restaurants to visit, and is pretty accessible off the highway. The location is great for anyone looking to have close access to the beach. The cabana should be okay for anyone fine with a snug stay, but the temperature may be a slight issue. Other than that, Megan was a great host and the cabana was perfectly accessible to spend plenty of time seeing the sights and hitting the waves!

    Jacob2015-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot for exploring both Venice and Santa Monica. Plus, you can't get much closer to the beach! Accommodations were clean and adorable. We had everything we needed including those white hotel robes that are my absolute favorite. We met Megan and one of her family members and they were very nice and helpful. The place is very private though and you feel comfortable coming and going as you please. We hope you love the whole experience as much as we did!

    Elizabeth2016-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Megan is very attentive to the needs of her guests. The room is private and comfortable and has all the amenities. Location is fabulous for walking on Venice Beach. It was a little confusing finding the entrance to the house, which is on a pedestrian walk, but we found our way in and all was well.

    Marc2014-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • The cabana room was perfect for our short stay. Cosy, comfortable and with all we needed. The area was quiet but everything needed was just a short walk away, and the beach was very close. Thank you Megan and the Rice clan for the perfect start to our break!

    Olivia & Alex2017-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This room is very private and so close to the beach it's amazing. We walked to just about everything and parking wasn't to bad at all. The room is perfect size and super cozy. Definitely recommend.

    Ricky2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • We greatly enjoyed our stay! The vibes of the home and the proximity to the beach made the cabana room an excellent get away

    Hunter2016-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • My cousin and I arrived a little early due to our early flight, but the Rice household welcomed us in and helped with our luggage. They were super helpful with places to see, great food and shopping, etc. Place was clean, warm and perfect size for us. Super comfy bed!! The bikes included were a huge bonus - we rode all along Venice and Santa Monica. Also really close to buses into downtown and Hollywood. Absolutely loved it here - night recommend. Thanks so much Megan!

    Rachel2016-01-27T00:00:00Z

    This unique suite has two beds, and one bathroom. Downstairs, you will find spacious living quarters with a queen-sized bed and seating. Venture up the spiral staircase to the upstairs loft to find the 2nd romantic bedroom nook (bed is queen sized).
    This artistic space features hand drawn fantasy murals and a colorfully tiled shower and bath. A generous downstairs living/sleeping room is topped off by a gold spiral staircase which leads up to a small extra loft bedroom. Just outside are a couple of chairs for taking in the mountain view and soaking up the sun. We have a brand new wireless router with extremely fast wireless Internet access at 85mb per sec. We also have a new, very reliable tankless hot water heater that never runs out of hot water for the bath/shower. You will be nestled in a 13 acre mountain village with other cottages, forests and mountain views. Nearby, there are laundry facilities and a communal kitchen / living space with a 100 year old fire place. You’d never know you were anywhere near a city! Visiting this property is a very unique experience, some describe it as “glamorous camping”. No photo shoots, parties or cats allowed without prior arrangement. Please read the FULL description, disclaimer and reviews, to make sure this is what you are looking for. **************************************************************************** DISCLAIMER: This is quite different from staying in an ordinary hotel. We are really in NATURE here - these are older cottages hand-built by artists in the forest. They are very rustic! It's like living in a mountain village, with other cottages nearby. While we work very hard to keep our places pristine and spotless - if anyone in your party will faint if they see a bug, lizard or little frog inside, some dust or a spider web - then this probably isn't the place for you. Please be very careful booking cottages for someone else - like your parents just arriving from another continent - they might prefer something more conventional. Some folks describe our places as a luxurious form of camping. We make our cottages very comfortable - they have all the basics - electricity - wifi - most have kitchens, bath or shower and comfy clean beds. But they are not like a hotel with perfect walls and a sterile atmosphere. Please look at all the pictures and read all the reviews. We can't offer refunds just because we don't meet the standards of a normal hotel. Most people are charmed by this idyllic and bohemian lifestyle - but it's not for everyone. ********************************************************************* FILM AND PHOTOS SHOOTS: This is an amazing property for photography, and film, with 13 acres of rustic cottages, oak forests and sculpted streams. But please note we have special and quite reasonable rates for filming, in addition to the normal rental charges. Please let us know ahead of time so we can work out the details. Commercial filming is not permitted without permission. ***************************************************************************

  • On reservation, David sent a very detailed email with directions, local attractions, etc. which was very helpful. The check in was smooth and the suite just as it is in the photos. Some reviewers had described this as a "more luxurious form of camping" so I knew what to expect. If you are okay with a somewhat run down, DIY place with charm and characters, you should try David's community. If you like solid walls, a real roof and some luxury, this might not be it. As for me, I enjoyed my time!

    Shuchi2014-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Fun, funky, and unique location. Grounds are beautiful and nearby Topanga attractions. Great weekend getaway.

    Vinh2015-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Mermaid Suite is a very unique space. It is located close to the State Park with many trails available there and in the general area itself. It is rustic but very managable, even for a pair of 65 year olds. The shower and bed are more than comfortable and efficient. Our only concern would be that it would probably be a little cold in winter since a space heater is the only available means of heat. Other than that, we loved it.

    Stan2013-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • The listing is accurate. A very pleasant, rustic stay in the Topanga Canyons. David was an incredibly warm and welcoming host. We ran into him as we arrived and he greeted us. Other than that, he stayed out of our way and let us enjoy our privacy. Perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors.

    John2015-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Cool little spot in the mountains, feels like you're in a cabin for camping - it was a great experience for us since we are outdoorsy!

    Ganesh2014-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a delightful stay in the Mermaid Suite. The community was friendly and warm and David was very kind and thoughtful. We loved the creative living space, the beautiful environment and the playful and "funky" decor of our suite. The colors were vibrant, the vintage furniture was charming and the murals, handmade ceramics, antiques and artistic craftsmanship of the buildings lifted our spirits. We were able to cook in the communal kitchen and it was an easy walk into town (although we were careful to not get too close to the road.) The walls were thin but the hosts were considerate and it was pleasant to share the sanctuary with our temporary neighbors. We heard several musicians playing soft guitar and singing sweetly and they may have heard our singing in the afternoon as well. We brought our 10 pound malti-poo with us and this worked out fairly well. Our only suggestion to other dog owners who come as guests is that you may want to keep your dog on a leash to avoid disrupting the territory of other dogs until the animals have been carefully introduced and are comfortable with each other. Overall, we would recommend this airbnb experience to anyone who wishes to experience Topanga Canyon's unique "micro-culture." Bring an open mind and a loving heart .... leave your tie, business shoes and worries at the gate. With a little flexibility you can expect to enjoy a fun, relaxing and even magical stay. Also, the location is ideal and it is not too far from Venice Beach and Santa Monica. The view is lovely. We walked to the Inn of the 7th ray restaurant and enjoyed and amazing Sunday brunch that we are still savoring. This may not be the airbnb for "everyone", but for many, it will be a jewel to return to. We will definitely be back!

    Lisa2013-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • David is very accommodating; he provides the experience of an inn in a private and rustic environment. Both visits to this place (once to the private cabin and once to this room) have been extraordinary, and it is serene to wake up in the canyons feeling at home.

  • We just loved this cottage. Maddy and John were fantastic, welcoming hosts. The walkstreet neighborhood is a garden of wonderful plantings and architectural styles and we enjoyed it's proximity to some of la's finest eating establishments, coffee houses, and interesting shopping....all within walking distance. The cottage has absolutely EVERYTHING you will need with great shower, comfy bed and quiet, sophisticated atmosphere all around...indoors and outdoors. We hated to leave and hope to come back. Lucy and Ed

    Lucy2010-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived at Maddy & Johns on a Tuesday afternoon and was greeted by John. The guesthouse is absolutely gorgeous and in the grounds of their lovely home. The guesthouse is in a great location for Venice Beach which is just a 15 minute walk away. This may seem far, but in LA where you have to drive EVERYWHERE this is really really close! The house was clean and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. There was also free wi-fi available which was useful. John was really friendly and helpful and did not hesitate to help us with anything. I would recomend this guesthouse to anyone wanting to explore LA from the Venice Beach area.

    Chelsea2012-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • John & Maddy are fantastic people, so friendly and supportive and their cottage is just perfect! Lovely patio and a beautiful neighbourhood! Best stay in Venice ever;-) //Torbjorn

    Torbjorn2013-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was delightful in the most beautiful neighborhood! Never had to get in our car / could walk everywhere and the "walking streets" were the cherry on top. Everyone in the neighborhood was super friendly. John was the perfect host. He also gave us lots of local info as well as a map of the immediate area. Abbot Kinney blvd is a true gem packed with fabulous restaurants and very unique stores. On arrival there was chilled wine in the fridge as well as cheese and crackers - how fantastic is that?! Thank You!

    Danell2014-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location of this beautiful studio. It was great strolling around and admiring the amazing architecture and gardens in the neighbourhood. The studio was really clean and inviting, and the wine and cheese are a lovely touch. It was nice to meet you both and thank you for all your advice John.

    Susan2015-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Both Maddy and John were wonderful host. Very kind and friendly people. Hands down I would recommend anyone to stay here. There place was amazing, and in a quiet area, but very close to some of the best parts of Venice beach and Santa Monica.

    Matthew2015-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed our stay in Maddy and John's place. Super clean, homely, modern and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. We wouldn't have stayed in LA for so long had it not been for the location near Abbot Kinney Blvd and Venice beach, and we wouldn't have found out what a cool place Venice is. Definitely recommend it.

    Karina2016-09-05T00:00:00Z

The pool house is 450 square feet including couch/chair/cal-king bed/breakfast bar/kitchen/bathroom (photos are wide angle to give you an idea of the layout).
    This guesthouse is in the residential area of Mar Vista, a hidden gem on the West Side of Los Angeles near Venice Beach. It's close to great cafes, boutiques, and restaurants, yet it's quiet and peaceful—a perfect getaway.
  • Leuke en rustige omgeving! Heel fijn dat er fietsen aanwezig zijn zodat je de streek kan verkennen. Zeer propere kamer met privacy. Wij komen zeker nog een keer terug.

    Magalie2018-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had a great stay here. The pool house was clean, accommodating, and the hosts were extremely responsive. They even let us check-in early since I had an early flight into LA. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great location and value. Thanks for having us!

    Sam2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space!

    Kevin2018-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Vilaivanh was very easy to communicate with and very accommodating. The pool house is very quiet and private, even the host’s kids gave us lots of space and peace. The space is very comfortable and cozy with very nice bed linen and great amenities. The location is close to a lot of great spots if you don’t mind short drives while also very quiet if you plan on hanging around the pool.

    Tim2018-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Vilaivanh was there w/ a warm greeting when we arrived. The house is stylish & clean. The yard is spacious & has a pool, but closed for the period when we stayed. We enjoyed very much staying there.

    Pheling2018-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • The pool house was exactly as promised; sparkly clean, beautiful and well equipped. The bikes were a great bonus!

    Tanya2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Vilaivanh's space is cozy and comfortable, exactly what you need. A quick uber or bike ride to the beach, if you are looking to enjoy the beach scene in LA, look no further!

    Julianne2018-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Vilaivanh's pool house was perfect for my husband and me. It was comfy and elegant and had everything we needed.

  • This place is so stylish and lovely. Robert met me with the keys and guided me through the check in experience. He was warm and provided great tips about the area. Although he was available if I needed anything, he also gave me plenty of space to enjoy the bnb. I had no trouble finding parking although it is on a very busy street. It is in a great location with easy access to West Hollywood and Studio City. I would definitely book this place again on my next trip. I highly recommend it!

    Nicole2018-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely little spot. Wish we had more time to attend there. Host was incredibly helpful!

    Katelyn2017-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Robert was a great host. The home is located on a busy two-way road that winds up the Hollywood Hills. Robert waited for us outside the house and guided us to him during rush hour traffic. The pictures shown are accurate and the place was very clean and comfortable. It was close to all the popular neighborhoods in LA as well as the popular hiking trail at Runyon Canyon.

    Huy2017-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • You won't find a more lovingly maintained, well-thought out and stylish place than this. So many thoughtful touches, we felt well-cared for. The hosts live in the main house, always there when you need them, but never intrusive. They are thoughtful and caring - which you can tell by the way they have such nice amenities in the guesthouse, interesting art work on the walls, and carefully selected furnishings (like top-down/bottom up shades in the living room). It is also super super clean, and looks new while maintaining retro touches (like wood windows.) The casita is located on a busy street, with a few twists and turns so if you are not a confident driver, it may not be the best choice for you, but there always was parking available right in front of the house in the 8 days we were there. The house feels cozy, secure and is a real oasis. The AC is amazing, also has a great shower. It is located uphill from downtown Hollywood and I am so grateful we got to experience what it's like living in this neighborhood, thanks to this lovely Airbnb. It feels private and secluded, yet it's very close to everything. What a great experience!

    Tracy2018-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • This guest house was the perfect hideaway after enjoying all that LA has to offer. Space seemed newly renovated and comfortable for 1-2 people. Host was friendly and showed us around when we arrived. Strongly recommend for anyone interested in design and easy access to many neighborhoods.

    Yakdiel2017-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, loved it!

    Alec2018-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful guest house parking was available for us every night of our trip. Perfect location right off Hollywood and sunset couldn’t have asked for a better spot! Loved it and will be back.

    Mathue2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great central location for the Hollywood, mid-wilshire and West Hollywood sights. Comfortable home for two guests. Well-equipped kitchen. The hosts could not have been better at communicating and welcoming us. I was pleasantly surprised how easy and convenient street parking was for the cottage.

    After a day of sand and sun, curl up by the fireplace in this delightful bungalow that captures the spirit of the beach. With vaulted ceilings, cheerful decor, and vintage touches, it feels open, bright, and welcoming.
    The living room/dining room is a great place for hanging out. The back bedroom has a 1/2 bathroom connected and a separate back door for entering and exiting the house. The main restroom is connected to bedroom 1.
    Have a relaxing beach vacation with Venice Boardwalk and the endless food and shopping on Abbot Kinney just steps away.
  • Ingmar and Meg really went above and beyond creating a home a away from home in Venice Beach. We booked our stay at this lovely beach Bungalow for Christmas weekend and were absolutely delighted with the accommodations and hospitality provided. From day 1 of our booking, Ingmar & Meg were warm, professional and prompt in with their replies. Centrally located, the house was cozy, bright, and squeaky clean! The kitchen and bathroom were well stocked with all the essentials and everything was in perfect condition. Above all, Ingmar & Meg did such a beautiful job decorating each room with just the right amount of Venice Beach charm while still allowing us to spread out and make the place our own. We especially loved the working fireplace, which quickly became the cherry on top of our christmas weekend! We were so delighted with our stay, we ended up adding an extra night! I'd recommend this Bungalow to anyone and looked forward to returning on my own in the near future!

    Jaime2016-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • My friends and I really enjoyed staying at Ingmar and Meg's Place! It was super cute and cozy with good vibes!! We didn't want to leave their place! It bright and has lots of cute elements to it. We really liked how the living space was separated from the bedrooms. Ingmar was super flexible and we were even able to check in early.

    Parm2017-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and centrally located.

    Masaki2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Best AIRBNB experience. Hosts were extremely responsive and a lovely couple. I would definitely refer all three of their homes to friends and family.

    Meg2016-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Meg and Ingmar are the perfect hosts!! This was the best Airbnb experience that we can ask for. We loved having our very own bungalow close to the beach, and the cozy feeling of the place. It was very clean and had everything we needed. We loved every moment of our stay and we will definitely return!

    Dan2017-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • As advertised! Great change of pace from hotels as we traveled San Diego to San Francisco with a family of four. Provided everyone a little space. Has all the necessary amenities to stay-in and cook a few simple meals. Quick walk to the beach and easy location to drive to Santa Monica or Los Angeles, etc. Ingmar and Meg were very easy to work and the check-in/out process couldn't be easier!

    John2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Close the ocean. Lots of local color. Miss Venice already!

    Stay in a private Bungalow in the midst of a Banana Tree 4 blocks from Venice Beach. Artist, shops, restaurants, entertainment & the beach are all within walking distance.
    My bungalow is tucked back in a private area. Much of the common areas are full of flora and feels like a garden oasis and is very tranquil. Although the space is private you can walk or bike to all the most popular Venice sites.
    The place you are staying is surrounded by one of the most diverse group of people in the United States. This is an attraction in itself.
  • Great place and Christian was very hospitable!

    Sasha2018-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and Christian let us checkin 2 hours early as well which was really helpful.

    Matthew2018-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Christian was a great host and the space has amazing energy. He's available when you need help, yet completely understands the need for personal privacy. The "compound" is a wicked place for a solo traveller or a laid back couple looking for a comfortable oasis just steps away from the beach. They've got beautiful artwork scattered around the space, which makes you feel like your in your own private outdoor gallery. Thanks again and I will be back!

    Brian2016-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Christian was a great host! The space was very cool and well kept, and in a fantastic location. Christian even mailed me a sweater I left behind, which was incredibly thoughtful.

    Sara2016-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • I had such an amazing time at Christians place, I can’t find the words to say how much I loved it! The perfect place to relax and de-stress

    Carina2018-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Coolest. Airbnb. Ever.

    Greg2018-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • I had the best experience staying at the treehouse! Christian was extremely accommodating throughout the entire process. The treehouse was so cozy and in walking distance from Venice Beach and Abbott Kinney. I highly recommend to anyone! If I'm back in Venice, I'm definitely staying here again.

    Brielle2016-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great time, Christian's place was a ton of fun, and it was nice to be right in Venice, just a few blocks from the beach. The place was comfortable, especially the hanging bed. Christian was accommodating, everything was easy.

  • We stayed at Sheila's Townhouse in Pacific Palisades recently. It was one of the most pleasant stays I've ever had- It is in a rather secluded neighborhood but yet it's 10 minutes from the beach. The apartment was clean and the view is fabulous. I will definitely stay there again-

    Lisa2014-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was an absolutely wonderful experience. We loved the apartment! The neighborhood, view and proximity to the beach is great! If you are not familiar with the area, you should be advised that it is a drive to the attractions in Hollywood and will take a while, but if you are just looking for a relaxing beach vacation. This is great!

    Samantha2016-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Cute spot on the hill side, with wonderful views and lush gardens. Located nearby Malibu, West Hollywood area with easy access to Santa Monica also. The apartment looks exactly as on the photos. Although the property is on a dead end road with easy parking and no traffic, it's not as private as other reviews mentioned (maybe there was some change since those reviews ) There are adjacent neighbors also, which was a bit unexpected, but all were very nice.

    Buttercup Boglarka2015-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • what a wonderful space in a wonderful locale! it's conveniently located to all things la, but enough removed to feel like an oasis. if ever there was a tuscany in la, this is it. the nicely appointed apartment had everything i needed for a very comfortable stay. thanks so much for making this available!

    Tony2014-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Sheila's place is truly amazing a hidden gem on the Westside. The apartment is well equipped so you can easily prepare your own meals. If you don't feel like cooking, the Pacific Palisades view, but great restaurants. Don't miss out on Cafe Vida, great breakfast, lunch and dinner! Taking the car you're in Santa Monica within 10 minutes. By the way, you can see the Santa Monica Pear and the beach from the apartment through it's big windows ;) Unlike many other places I've stayed in LA it's super quiet with stunning ocean views. Sheila was a fantastic host, even if I haven't seen her. The directions how to get into the apartment were accurate and she was highly responsive before and throughout our stay. Will definitely come back on my next LA trip. Keep up the great hospitality, thumbs up.

    Helmut2015-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of those few places where I am torn about leaving a review.. It was just so beautiful, peaceful, idilic and perfect that I dont actually want to tell anyone else about it! But that would just be wrong. But it was all those things and more. Self contained apartment in the most perfect position, exactly what we needed, a little bit of peace and serenity within easy distance (with a car) of LA, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, State parks and all the other good stuff the LA area offers. The view was stunning, the bed was oh so comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed, the tub has jets and the whole place was spotlessly clean. We couldnt have found a better place. I feel like I'm gushing now, but Sheila's place deserves it. Sheila, thank you for offering this space in your home to outsiders and giving us the opportunity to see another side of life in LA.

    Becci2014-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • The place was exactly as described and reviewed; easy to find; well appointed; and perfect for my parents' three night stay.

    Peter2014-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • What more can I say about this idyllic gem. My wife and I booked Sheila's home for a recent trip to celebrate a milestone birthday. It was absolutely perfect. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and the views are spectacular. The photos don't do it justice. Every morning I sat and read on the patio overlooking the ocean as the sun came up. It was just enough space for my wife and I and everything we needed, including beach towels and a hair dryer, were there for us to use. We corresponded with Rachael and Anita and any question or requests was answered immediately. They were so accommodating and responsive. I can't say enough about them, only thank you for a wonderful stay and that we will be back!

    Small Small Small Small, studio in an historic building. The building is older and embodies the Venice charm. You can say it's a bit run down but the studio is EXACTLY as depicted. Not a hotel but sheets / apartment are always clean. Homelessness is part of Venice Beach's character. Pacific Ave is VERY SAFE but you will see some homeless people at the beach. If you are not used to that. Venice is prolly NOT a good fit. Please note: This is a 3rd floor building WITHOUT elevators!
    Small Small Small studio located in the best location of the world famous Venice Beach. Just a block away from the world famous Muscle Beach, and or the 'Venice' sign. Just a short walk to Abbot Kinney. Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade is 5 minutes away from this studio, or can easily take public transit on Pacific Ave! Most major super markets are within 5 minute drive. Gold's Gym and Equinox are both very close by. The building is older and is in the process of being upgraded,. It's quiet and safe. This is a 3rd floor apartment WITHOUT elevator. Please plan accordingly should you have issues with the stairs. Street parking. Parking is usually a none issue in this area. Please read street signs, street cleaning is either on Monday or Tuesday. Do not park there during street cleaning hours. Mildred/ Pacific Ave/ Strong Dr usually have parking.
    Venice Beach is famous for being one of the most 'colorful' beaches in the world. Great shopping, LOTS of interesting vendors selling stuff. Great location (literally crossing the street will get you to the world famous Venice Beach. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Street parking on Mildred ave/ Pacific Ave/ and Strong Dr. Please read street signs. Street cleaning is on Monday and Tuesday. Please do NOT park there during street cleaning hours. You WILL get a ticket. I am told b/c of the location, it's prolly a much better fit for younger guests as you do have some city noise. This is a 3rd floor apartment, WITHOUT elevators.. You'll need to walk up..
  • From the very first inquiry on this apt, Jay was very responsive which I appreciate a lot. The apt is as pictured, except I'd add it's brighter during the day. I was welcomed by his friend Collin, and experienced no issues during my wonderful Venice beach stay. Thanks again for being honest about your apt, it's nice, cozy and bright!

    Eduvigis2014-08-28T00:00:00Z

  • Such a good location on Venice beach. Check in was very easy. Host was very kind! My sister and I stayed at this place for 2 night in November. It's easy walk to restaurants and cafe in the area. It's very convince place. I recommend this.

  • We couldn’t have asked for better hospitality! Jay was incredibly kind and helpful. It was absolutely amazing how well he communicated and responded any time! Love the apartment and the location was outstanding. Walking distance from everywhere we wanted to go and anything we needed. Thanks again Jay and hope to be back soon!

  • Thank you so much for three wonderful nights in your charming bungalow. The outdoor shower was like the Garden of Eden and your eye to little details and comfort were much appreciated!

    Molly2015-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a great experience overall! The mini-me is wonderful in every way. Extremely quiet, wonderfully decorated, and close enough to the great things Venice Beach has to offer. Kevin and Susan are fantastic hosts. Their communication was excellent, and the house was very clean and even had a basket of snacks/coffee waiting for us! There are a couple of beach cruisers (w/lock) to get you where you want to be, and the outdoor shower was tremendous (even with the crazy weather we had during our trip). My only complaint is that the trip is over and we're back to reality! We would DEFINITELY return! Thanks Kevin and Susan!!

    Paul2016-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is charming, cozy comfortable. The outdoor shower is awesome. It reminded me of when I lived on the islands.

    Domine`2015-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Dreamy. We decided that this might be where, if she ever left Neverland and grew up, Tinker Bell might live. It felt like being inside a breezy greenhouse during the day. And at night like being inside a cozy treehouse, filled with little twinks of light from lamps and dimmers. Also it was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. To round it all out, Kevin and Susan were communicative before arrival, there to welcome me, and then gone until we said goodbye. Perfect hosts.

    Shay2013-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The space is even more beautiful than the pictures. Location is perfect, walking distance to lots of great shops and restaurants. Overall, a great experience.

    Tova2016-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful space! Kevin and Susan were beyond accommodating and welcoming. I was in LA for a big exam, and when I returned from the test Susan literally read my mind and brought me a glass of wine. They are very laid-back and lovely folks and the space is beautiful and perfect for a long weekend. The bicycles were clutch for exploring Venice and the surrounding areas.

    Teresa2015-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Kevin & Susan's bungalow was an absolute dream! The house is just as you would imagine from the photos and even more magical in person! Kevin and Susan were the utmost courteous and pleasant hosts - they even took extra steps to weather-proof the roof during my stay in anticipation of the first rain storm of the season. The highlight of the bungalow is the outdoor shower - with climbing ivy and antique windows, not to mention very hot water and good pressure. I never want to shower indoors again!

    Heather2014-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved staying at the craftsman mini-me! The open and airy layout made us feel like we were truly experiencing that "California laid-back" style. The shower was one of my favorite things about this cottage. It's a true outdoor shower with vines and plants throughout, so it's like showering in a rain forest! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to stay. Oh, and the bed is the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. The location of the cottage is great: it's reasonably close to Venice Beach, Santa Monica, and the shops/restaurants on Abbott Kinney Blvd. It rained for most of our stay, but Kevin & Susan provided 2 nice beach cruisers we would have used to get around otherwise. We met both hosts briefly and they were warm and welcoming. They also provided a variety of snacks, coffee, tea, and sparkling water, which were the perfect staples we needed during our stay. The only thing we weren't crazy about was the bathroom: it's very open to the rest of the cottage, so there's not much privacy. Fortunately, there's ample outdoor seating, so if you need some privacy you can simply ask whoever's staying with you to step outdoors for a few minutes. Overall, we loved Kevin & Susan's cottage and are already planning a second trip where we can stay at this lovely spot once again! Highly recommended.

    Fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves in this charming beachfront apartment. The light, airy home features open-plan living and a wall of windows to maximize the amazing views. Enjoy drinks on the deck and a sunset over the water—it's pure bliss.
    This beachfront apartment is right above the sand and surf. At night the sounds of the sea will lull you to sleep. During the day, you can watch the sea lions sunning on the rocks and dolphins and whales swimming by or go for a walk along the water's edge and dive in yourself. This is an amazing place to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset and relax! In the evening, the lights of the "Queen's Necklace" glimmer in the distance and the moonlight shines on the water. The living room is cozy with two loveseats to snuggle in and watch a movie on the 50" flat screen TV. Three large sliding glass doors open up if you want to let the ocean breezes blow through. The kitchen is small but fully equipped with an apartment size stove and oven, a microwave, a Keurig coffee maker and a French press, tea kettle, toaster and all the dishes and pots and pans you need. A round table with linens provides a beautiful spot for morning coffee. The bedroom has a queen bed with a new organic mattress and designer sheets, pillows and duvet. There is a large closet with room to store your clothes. Books line the bookshelves if you'd like something to read. Mostly, this is just a quiet, beautiful space to put your feet up and really relax while watching the endless panorama of the natural world outside. And....if you want to feel like a movie star, the apartment was recently used as a glamorous setting in an independent film due out soon!!!
    Situated directly above the sand and surf, the home is in a residential area along the Malibu coast, away from the tourist areas. Take in the stars at night while strolling along the beach, or eat at one of the nearby restaurants right on the water.
  • The apartment was exactly as described. Our host was wonderful and made us feel very welcome. She even gave us a bottle of wine to enjoy on the porch! :) The steps from the house lead right down to the beach which is very private. The views are amazing and we were even able to see sea lions as we had our coffee in the morning!

    Kristin2015-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Connie was an amazing host and her place is beautiful. Grateful for this experience and your hospitality.

    Michelle2015-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • my host was incredible. the place was incredible. the EVERYTHING was incredible. i will use this place again.

    Travis2014-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Connie's beachfront apartment for our one year anniversary and it was just lovely! The view was amazing and the place was extremely clean, just like the photos! The kitchen is well-equipped. We were able to make dinner with no problems. Connie is very responsive and extremely friendly. I've already suggested to some of my friends that they need to visit!!

    Chika2016-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Connie's place is PERFECT. Don't hesitate:)

    Jean2018-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Connie was warm and welcoming and made both check in and check out an effortless experience. My husband and I have a lot of friends in LA/Malibu area so we were not at the home all that much, but there is nothing like falling asleep and waking up next to the ocean. The house is exactly what you want/need for a beach getaway. The bathroom is actually quite luxurious and the bed was very comfortable, even though I am used to sleeping in a King. The kitchen is well appointed and the wireless internet works as well! There are a ton of great spots within close distance and you can't really beat waking up and seeing people playing with their dogs on the beach and dolphins jumping around in the ocean.

    Valerie2015-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • There is really no need for me to spend much time this review. Connie is a wonderful host. The photographs don't even do it justice. The price is very fair. She provides everything that you could possibly need. I can't imagine any complaints.

    Philip2016-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Connie is a wonderful host and her home is perfect for a relaxing getaway by the sea! The waves will lull you to sleep and you'll wake up to the ocean views. Beautiful apartment and great location. Can't wait to come back!

    In the heart of Venice, here is a charming pool house which has all of the basics needed to have a wonderful time exploring LA. Must love dogs (I have 2!) and shower/bathroom is rustic and outdoors with a cool surf board door. See photos!
    Welcome to the best spot in Venice 7 blocks to the beach and Abbot Kinney Blvd! You have a charming pool house in the back of my house with all of the amenities necessary to spend most of your time exploring the city. You have your own private entrance with two twin beds (one pulls out and they can be put together to make a king bed), TV, Wi-Fi, access to beautiful outdoor seating , the kitchenette has a sink, refrigerator with separate freezer, coffee & espresso maker, toaster oven and microwave, filtered water dispenser, but no full kitchen. Washer/dryer and access to my bikes, boogie boards & skateboards! The shower/bathroom is located outside in a fenced-in area with a surf board door. I will provide the basics: shampoo, conditioner, body wash & hair dryer. Plenty of free street parking available. ***MUST LOVE DOGS: I have 2 friendly dogs that live with me in my house in front, I will keep them inside for the most part while you are here, but they will be around.
    Venice Beach, arguably both the most relaxing and exciting part of Los Angeles. It is in the perfect location to maximize your stay with easy access to the Venice Boardwalk, Santa Monica, Marina del Rey and Brentwood. It's an easy drive to Malibu, West Hollywood and other areas in the city.
  • Frist time AirBnb-users, had a great experience as Janas guests. Amazing place, located perfectly for checking out the Venice area. Jana was a great host, with lots of tips for getting the most of our stay. Loved the bikes, the coffee machine, the backyard and the fresh towels. Would absolutely recommend for everyone wanting to rent a place in Venice.

    Rune2016-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place was SO cozy. It felt more like a spa retreat while we were there! The space heater was onpoint for those chilly Venice nights and the post hot tub experience. We didn't have a chance to use the outside shower although we really wanted to, considering there was a beautiful bathroom basket and fuzzy bathrobes too. Aside from the perfect location and adorable amenities, Jana was a perfect host and very accommodating. I will definitely come back to this spot if the chance ever arises and I have referred my friends. I have done many Airbnb's and this one was top notch. Thank you for having me and my fiancé!

    Kristy2016-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful stay, Jana was a great host and the place was great! The place is close to everything that we needed and the jacuzzi was amazing. Will come back again in the future.

    Nam2015-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Jana was lovely and accommodating. The Pool House was clean and private, very comfortable. I did not realize the bathroom was outside when I booked the spot, so that was a bit of a surprise, however, it ended up being totally fine and I even enjoyed showering outdoors. This is probably not a great spot for someone high maintenance given the outdoor bathroom, but if you are young and/ or somewhat free-spirited it is great. And again, Jana herself is a total pleasure and made me feel welcome and comfortable in her home.

    Annie2015-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Jana was the perfect Airbnb hostess! Her garden is amazing, with a pool, a hot tub, and a ping-pong table! The room is exactly as advertised, a perfect base for exploring, and comes with a coffee machine and all the basic necessities. Jana is a quintessential California girl, full of great recommendations and stories about the area. She was incredibly friendly and kind, and made us feel very welcome. I would absolutely love to return, and recommend her poolhouse to anyone visiting Venice!

    Hazel2016-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Perfect location!

    Taylor2015-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Jana was extremely accommodating, very available to answer questions and an over all delight :)

    Jessica2015-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jana's pool house is unreal. It's a paradise for solo/couple travelers as it's a blend of a Bed & Breakfast mixed with a tropical resort-like Hostel. You got a pool, hot tub, sauna, a pool slide, ping pong table, and an outdoor bathroom. So if you're looking for something fun and quirky in Venice then Jana's spot is definitely one to try out. But it's also the host's hospitality and friendliness that will keep me coming back for sure if I'm ever in the neighborhood.

  • Todd was a great host. We arrived the night of Easter Sunday so it was very noisy however all the other nights were quite. Easy walk to both Muscle Beach and Santa Monica Pier.

    Bonnie2018-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Eine traumhafte Location. Wer Venice erleben will, kommt hier auf seine Kosten. Tür auf und man ist mitten im Leben und sofort im Sand. Preis/ Leistung ist super.

    Kathrina2017-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views and location if you want to be right on the beach! The place was nice and clean and the host was available if needed (we never needed to though).

    Jenna2017-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location, right next to beach, shops,& restaurants. House is cozy, good size for two people, lots of newer upgrades. Todd was responsive and very communicative. Would recommend.

    David2017-06-09T00:00:00Z

  • If you like to visit Venice Beach this apartment exactly what you need

    Roman2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay here! With street and boardwalk entrances, the location is great for Venice beach! Although the weather was pretty bad for our stay, we were still thrilled to be living on the beach. When we arrived our refrigerator power went down, but Todd was quick with responding and had the situation handled immediately. We had three people in our party two on the bed, one on the couch. The couch was big enough to sleep on, but a bit uncomfortable-yet manageable. It did get a bit loud at night, but not enough to keep anyone up, just pointing these things out, but they didn't take away from our experience. Overall loved our stay and would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay on Venice beach!

  • Had a wonderful stay at Dary's. She's super friendly and the place is very cozy. I highly recommend it to those who wish to be in the Venice area.

    Charlene2017-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, smaller than we expected but clean and cozy and at a walking distance from Venice beach and Abbot Kinney. The street is dark at night which made me feel slightly unsafe but I noticed that is rather common in the US...and the area is actually safe. Dary was a great host, very quick in answering all our questions. She was even kind enough to let us stay longer as we had a night flight. Highly recommended !

    Arianna2016-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Dary is a wonderful host! She made sure everything was set up nicely and when we got there she even left some things in the fridge that we could enjoy! Great place so far! Would always come back!

    Marius2015-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Dary was a great host, super fun and friendly. She's quite busy but will take time out to chat, advice on places to go, and even took me out for Sushi and dancing on my last night!! I have a difficult diet (no wheat or dairy) and she did some shopping for me (for a reasonable fee) so I had a fridge full of goodies when I arrived. The place was comfortable, and clean I slept like a log every night. The area is right near Abbot Kinney and the beach..you can run down to Venice boardwalk it's a lovely run along the beach. Didn't want to leave!!!! Definitely recommend Dary ' place...I will be back!!

    Claire-Victoria2015-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Dary was a great host - very communicative in emails and friendly in person!

    Carly2016-12-11T00:00:00Z

  • Staying at Steve and Helga's Guest House was a great first time Airbnb experience for us! The house is fully stocked with everything you need, including bikes to enjoy the area. Communication with Steve was great and their hospitality was spectacular! I would definitely recommend this property to anybody looking for a convenient place to stay in the Venice/Santa Monica area without the cost of the Santa Monica hotels.

    Brad2014-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfection. Couldn't recommend this place and host enough.

    Jackson2015-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Steve and Helga are very pleasant and hospitable. Their guest house is very clean and well stocked with all that is needed for a marvelous stay in SoCal. They are approachable, and they answered any questions I had about the accommodations and the surrounding areas. I would stay at Steve and Helga's guest house again given the opportunity.

    Matt2012-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 4 nights at Stephen and Helga's guesthouse as part of our honeymoon. It was perfect. Bright, airy, the most comfortable bed and secluded. But best of all were the hosts. They were absolutely wonderful. Provided all the essentials for our first breakfast, provided a bottle of champagne, and available when needed. Thank you for such a lovely stay. Made our honeymoon memorable!

    Jenny2014-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Does it get any better? After 2 wonderful days in Helga and Stephen's guest house we hope we will be back again soon! We already miss the evenings spent on the deck. Thank you for the perfect stay!

    Loïc2015-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Stephen and Helen were very welcoming and very nice. I stayed at their place for a weekend after a work conference in Santa Monica. The guesthouse was exactly as posted. It was a beautiful studio perfect for two people. It was clean, quiet and private enough. I absolutely loved their garden and waterfall. They're also in a great location -- about 20 minutes from LAX, a short drive downtown Santa Monica, Palisades etc., If I ever find myself in Santa Monica again-- they will be my first choice!

    Alex2016-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome!!! Will definitely stay there again!!!

    Julia2016-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Stephen and Helga were great hosts. The accommodation was top shelf and the location is great. A short bicycle ride to some nice eateries on Rose Avenue and down to the Venice and Santa Monica beachfront. Even had Vegemite waiting for us. Highly recommended and I will look to stay here again in the future.

    HANCOCK PARK Long before Beverly Hills was 'Beverly Hills', there was Hancock Park, one of the oldest, most affluent, architecturally well-preserved and star-studded neighborhoods in Los Angeles. A list of the owners of the well-preserved mansions includes: Jason Alexander, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith, David Schwimmer, Sean Hayes, sit-com actress Patricia Heaton, David Hunt, Kathy Bates, writer and producer Shonda Rimes, celebrity gossip queen Janet Charlton, Patricia Arquette, and French fashion designer Christian Audigier. Prince William and Catherine, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were staying at the British Consul-General's official residence in Hancock Park on their first visit to the United States after their wedding. Hancock Park is very safe and patrolled 24/7.
  • Janna was a friendly host. The house was just perfect with everything you can think of you need on a holiday. Bonus POOL! AMAZING! The location was great! Near Ralph's, the Grove, Farmers market, Erewhan (biological supermarket), super cool designer/ vintage/ shopping area with nice restaurants and coffee-bars. Definitely a place I would go back to. Thanks Janna for the lovely stay!

  • Janna war eine sehr gute gastgeberin!nach einer sehr freundlichen begrüssung hat sie uns genau die wohnung gezeigt.die nachbarschaft ist sehr sicher und (Website hidden by Airbnb) gab auch genügend gratis parkplätze vor dem haus.ausserdem war der standort der unterkunft ideal da man die meisten sehenswürdigkeiten mit dem auto in kurzer zeit erreicht.janna selbst haben wir leider nur 2mal gesehen,das war bei der ankunft und der abreise,da wir den ganzen tag unterwegs waren.danke für den schönen aufenthalt.

  • We stayed 4 nights in LA, Jannas place was fantastic. Very nice location, with a supermarket around the corner. The 'little things', body wash, shampoo, laundry detergent etc were fabulous! Great air con too. Would stay here again.

  • We very much enjoyed Janna's place and it was very convenient for our first visit to LA. Janna and her husband were very friendly and welcoming, which was relieving being young first time travellers to the USA. Her cosy room had everything we needed and I would highly recommend it to any couple. She or her husband were accessible if we had any questions as well having plenty of privacy and our own space. Thank you once again Janna for a comfortable stay!

  • As many reviews have been guaranteeing, Janna's room is perfect. She is so kind and informative. I STRONGLY recommend you to stay here if you plan to travel in LA. The room is exactly what is described. Though it is small, you never be disappointed. If you do not like parallel parking beside road due to a possible crash, you may need to consider. HOWEVER, I parked 3 nights, and there was nothing.

  • An adorable little place to stay that was equipped with many essentials (soap, shampoo, tissues, towels etc...). There was free street parking, wifi, and a pool at Janna's, too! It took us about twenty minutes in an Uber to get into downtown Los Angeles. Would definitely recommend!

    Chelsea2017-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Janna und ihr Mann waren super nette Gastgeber und haben sich toll um alles gekümmert. Die Wohnung ist zwar klein, für zwei Personen aber völlig ausreichend. Alles war sehr sauber, es gab reichlich Geschirr und auch Pflegeprodukte im Bad. Richtig toll ist die Lage. Wirklich nur einige Autominuten von Hollywood, Universal, Warner Bros. entfernt. Zu Fuß erreichbar ist auch ein 24h geöffneter Supermarkt für den es von Janna sogar eine Rabattkarte gab. Würde jederzeit hier wieder übernachten, das Preis- Leistungsverhältnis ist für diese Lage unschlagbar!

  • Everything was perfect from the moment we got there to the moment we left! We felt very welcomed and right at home immediately. The neighborhood was super safe and the home is beautiful. Janna left us alone the whole time which worked for us and we had a lot of privacy, but she was still available if we needed anything or had questions. She even had hair products available for my fiance to use, washer/dryer, and coffee with a coffee maker. Can't recommend highly enough! We would definitely stay here again.

    Impossible to be closer to the Pacific Ocean without being on a boat! Directly situated on the water - you are hovering the beach near the restaurant, Moonshadows! We are close to Venice + Santa Monica. Very bright with tons of natural light, sundeck directly over the water and 2 clean bathrooms! If you are looking for profile picture worthy photos that will impress all your friends - this is the spot you want! Two big bedrooms with comfortable beds, clean bathroom and an amazing location!!
    Our place is very unassuming from the outside, but when you enter, you are transported to an amazing oceanfront experience. The living room, kitchen, dining area have a great indoor/outdoor feeling to them and this is where we like to spend most of our time when we are home. We have a sweet sun deck where you can catch some sun, enjoy a drink, or just lose yourself in the sights, smells, and sounds of the ocean. Our place is about 1100 Sq Ft. It has two separate bedrooms and two full bathrooms. We LOVE to travel and love having our friends stay with us so have tried to design the place to maximize sleeping solutions for guests. The master bedroom has a king size bed, a closet, and an attached full bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, a dresser, and a closet. There is a full bathroom down the hall from the bedrooms. There is a big sectional as well as a comfortable queen size air bed. There is a dining table with an unbeatable ocean view that isn’t available at Nobu unless you are a celebrity! Our home has a well equipped kitchen with enough cookware to cook a basic meal ingredients not included. Our place is not brand new, does not have brand new furniture, or is what we would describe as a luxury accommodation. It is best suited for well seasoned travelers who love the ocean and are looking to be as close to the water as possible. This is our home and we love living in Malibu. We have met travelers from all over the world, and people love visiting this area. That being said, people have expectations, and we want to ensure that we meet or exceed our guest’s expectations. Because our place is directly on the water, that comes with some realities. Salt water is a beast that knows no equal. This means there might be some surface rust on the exterior and metal fixtures of our home. There might be some sand, ocean spray, or other things you might find on a beach, on the deck. You might hear the traffic noise on PCH. This comes with the territory of living directly on the ocean. If these things bother you, please don't book our house. We don't want you to have a negative experience, and we don't want you to give us a negative experience. We have a professional cleaning service that details and sanitizes our entire home before and after every guest. There are stairs down from the building to the wet beach below. You might have to cross over a few rocks. On low tide, you can walk a mile north to Dukes all along the sand which is a private beach only accessible to the homeowners. Truly a great experience. On high tide, you will not be able to walk along the sand. Check the tide charts for a better idea of timing! In Summary - if you are looking for an amazing and unbeatable view of the ocean, clean towels, fresh linens, a great internet connection, and a top notch location, we’d love to have you! If you generally stay in the Four Seasons or prefer 5 star hotels, we suggest you keep looking. This is one of the coolest properties we've seen on Airbnb! It is situated directly on the shore overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You have a totally unobstructed ocean view from Santa Monica to Santa Barbara. Malibu is a dream. There are celebrities everywhere, the weather is perfect, and everybody is nice. Your neighbors on this property will likely be dolphins, pelicans, and seagulls, as you're at the beach! A dream location with breath taking views. It starts from the moment you enter your Malibu getaway, from early morning sunrise, to spectacular sunsets and magical moon beams across the ocean floor. Please note the house is directly on the water right off Pacific Coast Highway! Part of what makes the experience so cool, the views so enticing, and the sounds of the ocean so real! But if you are expecting a mile long sandy beach, that's not what this is. We live on a wet beach that is very dependent on the tide level. Due to sanitary and hygienic issues - we do not provide wash cloths. Dolphins, seals, pelicans , sea gulls, and if you're lucky a whale, add to the magical natural setting. Be one of the first to spend time in this truly different and unique beach home that represents the 'old Malibu vibe,' yet renovated for your every comfort. The view usually includes one or two of the Channel Islands to the North and Catalina Island to the South. The location is fantastic feeling a million miles away from the city but close enough if you need it. Santa Monica and Malibu town centers 10 mins either way. LAX airport 40 mins. Public bus stop a minute away. "Moonshadows" and "Duke's" restaurants just down the beach. Important Notes : This is a rental that is professionally cleaned before and after each guest. While there main be some blemishes, imperfections, scuffs, etc., the place is comfortable, extremely well located, and thoroughly enjoyed by 99.9% of our guests. If you are expecting a hotel, brand new furniture, brand new fixtures and fittings, etc., please do not book our home. This property is directly located on the Pacific Ocean. You will see some rust and wear from salt water on the property. It is not going to be well suited for any high-maintenance guests. We want guests who are able to enjoy the culture and vibe of the LA beach bum experience that we create.

It starts from the moment you enter your Malibu getaway, from early morning sunrise, to spectacular sunsets and magical moon beams across the ocean floor. High ceilings and a wood burning fireplace enhance the romance of your relaxing vacation. A well equipped kitchen, outdoor grill, large outdoor deck, and the ocean view dining promise great meals and quality moments together. Dolphins, seals, pelicans , sea gulls, and if you're lucky a whale, add to the magical natural setting. Relax on the deck, walk on the sand, surf, kayak, and swimming are steps from your front door.

Public bus stop a minute away. "Moonshadows" and "Duke's" restaurants just down the beach. Endless ocean/city light views, away from city but close if you need it. The sound , sight and smell of the ocean below is amazing. "The Society", writes - " It is the beach retreat of the rich and famous, but why? Here our West Coast girl-in-the-scene Lara Shriftman explores both the myth and reality of this fabled hot spot. Legend has it, and you know it yourself: Malibu is super chic, yet it is also very laid-back and everyone who lives there leads a very active outdoor lifestyle, both in and out of the water. Perhaps it is that juxtaposition that I love most about this beachy enclave. Malibu is a very close-knit community and many residents spend their time raising money for charities that help their community like Heal the Bay or the NRDC’s ocean initiative “Peace Paddle Out” in which local boarders and surfers formed a peace sign in the ocean off of Paradise Cove. Stretched over 27 miles along the Pacific Coast Highway, the municipality of Malibu is prime real estate for Hollywood’s biggest stars because of its beachfront properties like those on Carbon Beach. Carbon Beach is also known as Billionaire’s Beach for its notable residents like Los Angeles Dodger Jamie McCourt, Peter Morton, producer Joel Silver and Karen Silver, Larry Ellison, David Geffen, and Eli Broad. Near it is the Malibu Colony section, a favorite of Hollywood notables. Residents in the Colony include Juicy Couture founder Pamela Skaist-Levy and her husband Jeff Levy, Pamela Anderson, and Rita Wilson, Sting, John McEnroe and his wife Patty, and Chrome Heart’s owner Richard Stark. Another pristine stretch of coastline properties is La Costa Beach. Some of the people who reside in La Costa Beach are actor Stephen Dorff, Ron Herman, owner of the Ron Herman boutique, Ryan Murphy, creator of Glee and The New Normal, and Les Moonves, president of CBS. Surrounded by mountains and residential areas with gorgeous ocean views, some people who live on Malibu Road are John Cusack, Adam and Jackie Sandler and Jeremy Piven. And, of course, there are all the residents on the Bluffs like Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford, Mark Burnett, and Robert Downey Jr. Bold-faced residents are what Malibu is all about. SHOPPING & DINING The Malibu Country Mart is a large outdoor lifestyle center located in the heart of Malibu at the Civic Center on Cross Creek Road. There is great shopping like the Ralph Lauren Women’s store, Ralph Lauren RLX, children’s boutique 98% Angel, Madison, Vince, and Planet Blue. Tucked away in the corner is the Chrome Hearts store where they sell their signature jewelry and leather jackets. Ron Herman is great for maxi dresses and t-shirts. Since James Perse moved to a house in Point Dume four years ago, he developed a newfound interest in the outdoors that inspired his Yosemite line, an active-wear offshoot of his eponymous line. His flagship store that has a ping pong table on the deck and they make James Perse mountain bikes, surfboards, and comfortable couches in his Lumberyard flagship. The Country Mart also has great dining. Howdy’s Taqueria is a great casual place for breakfast and lunch in the Country Mart. You can walk up and get a breakfast burrito from the counter. There is also a great park to walk around or have a coffee from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. It has swing sets and a play area for kids. Taverna Tony restaurant serves fresh Greek food in a super relaxed, festive environment and has a beautiful patio space. Taverna Tony is really fun on a Saturday night because there is live traditional Greek music and everyone dances on tables. It is also Malibu’s power lunch spot and they have a great patio space. What’s not to love about that? Located next to the Country Mart is the Malibu Lumber Yard. It is also a great shopping and dining destination. There is also a J.Crew at the Beach, Tory Burch, and Intermix. Maxfield is located in an intimate stand-alone building and carries high-end designer pieces like its Beverly Hills Location is known for. Long-time Malibu Resident Rande Gerber’s Café Habana is great for lunch and is a great place to take friends and family locally. They serve delicious Cuban cuisine focused on locally-sourced ingredients. They have an infamous karaoke night on Wednesday that is really fun and has included some surprise celebrity performances. It is a favorite among celebrites like Sean Penn, Courteney Cox, and Kid Rock. They have a really fun bar and features cocktails like the Casamigos Delicioso from Rande and George Clooney’s new tequila, Casamigos and Caliche rum. Mr. Chow is a must-see and be seen hot spot in Malibu, in the Malibu Country Mart on Cross Creek Road, in the old Nobu location. In a nod to its beach location, the atmosphere of Mr. Chow Malibu is much more relaxed. I love the open kitchen where you can watch the chefs at work on the wok or creating the hand-pulled noodles in the famous nightly show. This locale serves the signature dishes of the Beverly Hills original like their Chicken Satay, Mr. Chow Noodles and Beijing Duck, which is made in a one-of-a-kind oven that was made especially for the restaurant. New Malibu location dishes include lobster with noodles, water dumplings and green prawns. There is also the signature Mr. Chow champagne trolley and a dessert cart that includes chocolate fondant and Key Lime cheesecake. Since it opened, Mr. Chow’s Beverly Hills has always been an institution for Hollywood’s biggest stars like George Clooney, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elton John, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Malibu’s location has the same celeb following, and like the entire beach’s state of mind, anything seem possible under the warmth of the Southern California sun.

  • Stephen always responded to my wife,s million questions she asked.he was very polite and accomodating. A great host and very honest

    Jamil2016-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Stephen's home was great! Located on PCH right over the water. Super relaxing when falling asleep and a great view to wake up to. Malibu Farm (cute brunch spot) is just a 6 minute drive away and nightlife was not too far. Great weekend getaway for sure.

    Jesse2017-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice cozy place right on the ocean. The waves crash right underneath the house giving that soothing calming feeling.

    From the moment we arrived we knew that Carol & Vincent's cottage was the perfect place for us while visiting our daughter in LA. It is large and looks like a place that was decorated by HGTV designers. Vincent, Carol's husband, was there to greet us. He is so friendly and helpful and explains everything a guest would need to know. Carol & Vincent have gone over and beyond what anyone would ever expect or need while away from home. The kitchen is fully supplied with every small appliance like a Keurig coffee maker, toaster, etc. They also supplied many breakfast items like milk, juice, butter, and cereal and even snacks. There were also wraps such as tin foil, dishes, pots, and everything you would need to prepare a meal. The large appliances such as the stove, microwave and refrigerator were all modern and new. The gorgeous bathroom was well stocked with items such as towels, soap, tissues, shampoo, conditioners, and anything else you would need for grooming. There are even bathroom cleaners there, if you should need them. There is a spacious closet with hangers, an iron, and ironing board. We could not believe that there is even a washer & dryer with detergent and dryer sheets provided. So if you're packing, you can pack light and wash your clothes over and over. It was hot when we were there and the central air conditioning really kept us cool. Internet and 2 TV's are provided in the cottage and there is a large outdoor TV in the courtyard with other amenities we did not even have time to explore or enjoy. The courtyard is decorated beautifully with colorful pavers, furniture, and flowering plants. We are very familiar with LA and we chose this cottage not only because of the reviews we read, but also because we knew it was so centrally located to everything you would want to see in the LA area. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and there is so much shopping is just around the corner on LaCienega Blvd. We did get to meet Carol during our stay and she is as lovely a person as is her husband Vincent. A BIG THANKS to Carol & Vincent for making our visit so special. E & B

    Sarah met me at the apartment - as she lives just in front she was able to be flexible when I arrived a little later than expected. She gave a tour of the property with hints/tips. The wi-fi signal was poor at first but I went out and by the time I got back she had bought/put in a splitter(?) so the signal strength was good. Fast service and Sarah is always contactable/willing to help. The apartment was clean, characterful and well presented and had just about everything you could need, including a few snacks, cold water in the small fridge, tea, kettle, toaster, shampoo, shower gel and Aesop hand soap. It could do with a radio or maybe a docking station as there is nothing for entertainment apart from some yoga books for if you want to unwind. There was a wardrobe with drawers and large drawers under the bed to house all my stuff, a decent shower and even a few bits in the bathroom cabinet in case you forgot something. The private patio is for you and you alone (though occasionally somebody might cross to get a board or come in the side gate), so make sure you're dressed as there is no window covering once the curtains are open. Location-wise, it is down a lane at the back of the houses but perfectly safe and it is very well located for all the restaurants, etc on Abbott Kinney and for getting to Main Street, Venice Beach and the canals. The bikes and boards are useful so you don't have to spend money on hire costs. I didn't have a car but there are two parking spots and a washer (and dryer?) in the gated courtyard. Sarah offered to take me for a juice or a bike ride which I though was very nice but unfortunately I wasn't able to find any time to meet her as I only had 2 days there. Nice to be asked though and I would stay again.

    Our experience at Brenna's Bungalow was absolutely wonderful. The space was beautiful and clean. We couldn't get over how wonderfully styled this place was. The location was great as well, spending most of our time exploring the city and enjoying the beach. Parking was also easy, we found a spot right in front each night. Brenna was a great host and made us feel comfortable the entire stay. We had great communication throughout our visit and appreciated the hospitality. If we visit the area again, this is the first place we would try and book! Thank you Brenna & family :)
