PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

I will reccomment this property to all my family and friends. Not only was its location ideal for us, it is so close to the ocean that we drove our bikes, and walked the beach each day and evening. One day we even set up our croquet game on the amazing manicured lawns you see from the picture. The home is cozy and clean, also amazingly quiet! I cant say enough about it. Malibu provided a perfect vacation for us and the grounds were breathtaking. Homeowners did a great job with keeping in the theme of architecture and providing great reads about the area. They made our stay so easy and comfortable.

An exceptional home and rental experience!

My wife and I agree with the other reviewers that this home is a very special place. It was one of, if not the best rental experience we have ever had. The photos and description are representational of what you will find, but truthfully the house and property are so much better in-person once you arrive. Clean, spacious, attractive, comfortable, functional, and fun - we could go on and on! The house allows plenty of privacy - whether you are traveling with your spouse, another couple, or children - you can always find your own private space. Since we are from upstate New York, the orchard gave us something we are not accustomed to - a bounty of fresh lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruit. The proximity to Zuma and other beaches was just right. The evenings were quiet and you could hear the ocean waves softly pounding the shore in the distance. A grocery store with a great wine selection was close by. So many great attributes, what more could you ask for?

Jon and Lisa went out of their way to make sure our visit was perfect - and it was. We would have stayed a month if we had the time.

Thank you, Jon and Lisa, for making your home available to us lucky few that have discovered your listing on HomeAway! We will have fond memories of our stay for years to come.

Third time stay over three years. Each time longer with this last itme for a month. Needless to say we love the home, the owners are great and friendly, the neighbourhood is always up to expectation with its cafes and restuarants with many choices of beach locations. The Casita has ample facilities and accommodation to service us and our own local CA family with kids and grandkids with large garden lawn and patios. Just got back to UK and cant wait to return next year to see our wonderful owners Jon and Lisa.

surprised at the glowing reviews

my husband & i (early & mid 30s) and his parents (late 70s) stayed at this house over labor day weekend.
i am a native angeleno and we have rented many properties in malibu over the years, including a few on this exact street.
after reading glowing reviews i was surprised by the brusque communications with the owner and low quality of these accommodations. price is a little bit lower than others in the area but all others we have stayed at either are much nicer or offer membership to the beach club. we will not stay here again nor would we recommend this to anyone.

PROS
- front garden is nicely maintained.
- good Wifi
- location is decent
- bathrooms good for elderly (easy step shower)

CONS
- awful, small & incredibly uncomfortable beds & bedding (cheap cheap cheap)
- not enough outdoor furniture (have to drag the few pieces they have around the property
- hot & stuffy. only 1 bedroom has a ceiling fan, and even with doors & windows open this property was impossible to get to a comfortable temperature. none of us slept well, combo of the worst beds ever and no airflow.
- old TVs, hard to watch since they are all at odd angles and bad quality picture. no cable even though it says they have satelitte/cable
- i realize this is a matter of personal taste but all four of us hated the decor.
- no hanging clothing storage at all except in the master bedroom
- no towel racks or places to dry towels in either bathroom or outside. master bath has a tiny towel rack right over toilet (so not a place to hang wet bath towels to dry!)
- messy. apart from the front garden nothing is well maintained! stained carpets and all the drawers were filled with piles of junk and there was alot of old food in the cabinets
- sink is ridiculously small.
Owner's Response: We were shocked when we read this guests review of our home. She had contacted me several times during her stay with questions, but never mentioned any problem with the property whatsoever. We even have a letter on display in the home with our contact info asking guests to notify us if anything is not as it should be, so that we may have it promptly corrected. The Spanish architecture, tiles and décor, the size of our beds, and the patio furniture, are all clearly described and their photos are on VRBO. If the style of the home, the patio furniture and the size of our beds really didn't suit them, why did they book our home? In addition to the ceiling fan in the master we have 2 large ceiling fans in the living/dining area that descend from the 18 ft. high ceilings. I'm not sure how she missed them. Also both bedrooms have windows and French doors that open into the courtyard and the entire back wall of the living room is 8 foot tall French doors that open to the fresh air. I'm not sure if "stuffy" is even possible with so many windows and doors. In addition to the hanging towel racks that display the clean towels there is also a towel bar on the wall next to the shower for hanging towels to dry. It's visible in the mirrors reflection on the photo of the blue bath. We also have a stacking washer/dryer in the home. The bedding she refers to as cheap is Vera Wang and certainly not inexpensive. This guest contacted me and requested a late check out of 2:00 pm instead of 11:00 am on the day of her departure. She stated that "they wanted to get a few more hours of calm" for her in-laws before their flight home. I let her know that I was sorry, but we had guests with reservations beginning at 3:00 the same day and could not accommodate her request. Our housekeeping staff needs several hours to thoroughly clean and restock the home prior to each arrival. We cannot accommodate the requests of one guest at the expense of another. Apparently she was extremely unhappy with my response, no matter how politely given. And I first heard of a problem with the cable service when I read it in her review! I checked with the guests who arrived at her departure and they said the cable and TV's were all working perfectly. I'm not sure why she has made so many inaccurate statements about our home. We strive to provide our guests with a great experience. We have professional housekeepers and a crew that maintain our home and gardens year round.

UNBEATABLE MALIBU EXCELLENCE!!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 23-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2013
We have only used vacation rentals for about the last 8 yrs – and all of them in the USA. Yet, I have reviewed literally thousands of listings in order to find acceptable rentals for the “fussy & eccentric”.

The pictures and info shown in listing are very representative; although the rooms are actually larger than they appear. We normally like to choose places without carpets, but there were so many other positive features we liked, we luckily chose the casita anyway. During our stay, Lisa advised us that the carpets are scheduled to be removed in Nov, so that just adds to the whole appeal. The orchard was heaven for us!! All the citrus trees were weighted down with fruit and made awesome juices. Not the right time of year for pomegranates or some of the other fruit, but anything in the orchard is available for the guests’ use; and an added bonus is that no pesticides are used.

Zuma beach is within walking distance and the neighbourhood is surrounded by large estates of the rich and (some) famous. It is quiet, safe, very privately groomed with lots of trees and far enough away from PCH for it to seem non-existent; yet close enough to take you to the other (busier) areas of Malibu if you choose. We specifically leave all of the busy parts of life when we come to the ocean, so the casita turned out to be absolutely perfect for us.

There weren’t enough hangers in the closet…. I guess that they seem to grow “legs” and disappear. I asked if there were more somewhere and mentioned a couple of other minor things… Lisa showed up right after work with brand new hangers and a few other items I had mentioned. She is very professional and a pleasure to deal with. I am confident that she would deal with any issues immediately, efficiently and as quickly as the minor ones that I mentioned. She lives nearby, but unless needed, she is totally unobtrusive. We saw the gardener on his scheduled day… otherwise only the small wildlife were seen on the property.

Lisa also provided some excellent restaurant recommendations. Although we cook most of our own meals, we tried out Spruzzo’s and Malibu Seafood; which were both excellent and only a short drive away.

We would highly recommend this property; especially if looking for peace and quiet for much needed R & R. I am not surprised that the casita has many repeat renters… we have already booked for our next trip in Jan ’14.
