Complementary vino,cheese and crackers upon your arrival If the calender says that the cottage is available,. IT IS! HIT THE BLUE 'BOOK IT BUTTON'! Centrally heated and cooled. Two very large tastefully inviting' bed rooms.(with King and Queen beds. Also up to' three' (Separate hideaway beds),nobody has to sleep on a couch! One and one quarter bath(no waiting), The linens are of sufficient thread count and are impeccably clean.(I clean them myself). A bathroom with a 'full bathtub',and not just a shower. You can be assured of peaceful uninterrupted nights sleep..This is a completely detached building with 'total privacy' as it's sole design mission.The kitchen is fully appointed ,including a dishwasher ,microwave,full sized refrigerator, full stove , toaster,spices that would satisfy most palettes,dishes,and an assortment of pots and pans. An array of gourmet teas and coffee are there for your enjoyment. There is a clothes washer and dryer solely for your use.The Fully appointed grand kitchen that opens up into a bright living room that is large enough and elegant enough, to entertain new clients ,family ,new friends ,or whomever you choose!

'High end 'shopping abounds well within easy walking distance.Conveniently situated between the Calabasas Commons,(as seen frequently on TMZ and other shows), and at least four other shopping malls and stand alone boutiques abound.

Where you are able to go and really 'unwind' is what makes all of the difference.You can also view or book another one of our fabulous properties by following this link.
I cannot emphasis enough how important it is for a home away from home to afford you as a guest, 'complete privacy'...You wont feel intruded upon in at all.
Unfortunately for our safety and even more than that,..The safety and privacy of our guest we can not allow 'stop byes',or 'drive byes'. Please do not ask.We tried it before and it simply does not work. Valid identification for all guest must be presented at time of check in.
I attempt at all times to remain open minded on all things.Our differences are what makes life interesting.,modesty is usually the best life policy,I strive to be easy to communicate with.I love garage sales and second hand stores.traveling up the California coastline,cooking for old and new friends,Good jazz and jazz (website hidden) homes represent me and my Life views,... calm and relaxed.Nothing artificial,all natural.I never ever want to leave any situation second guessing 'did I do my best?' Therefore I attempt a 110 percent effort.
Rich and Eva purchased this house in 2007
This home was everything that it said it would be. we stayed here 6 nights while we finished up our graduate classes at the Wella Studios in Woodland Hills. It was great to know that after every day of studying and testing we had such a peaceful home to relax in. And the owner checked in on us to make sure everything was up to our expectations. Love that they started us out with a few grocery items and some wine. Will definitely stay here next time I come, and highly recommend to anyone!!
My wife and I stayed in this two story cottage for two weeks while visiting our son who lives nearby. The cottage shares a lot with another larger one story home. Although "vistas" are not an asset, the location provides a private, safe and quiet living environment. Grocery, restaurants, shops, service stations, etc and located nearby. The 101 freeway is minutes away as is Malibu Canyon Pass. We did a lot of sight seeing along the PCH and North and found this to be an excellent location for that.
The cottage is well equipped, clean, and as others have pointed out, Rich and Eva provide more than adequate food and drink to get you started. You even have your own orange tree. Rich and Eva do a great job and are very attentive if needed. When they found out my wife and I like to bicycle they loaned us two bikes for our stay.
During our stay we took a road trip to Monterey where we spent two nights at a Hyatt. No contest, the cottage is a way better value. We shall return.
We stayed here over New Years on a last minute reservation to attend the Rose Bowl football game. Rich and Eva were wonderful! The house was very comfortable, decorated with lots of Hollywood memorabilia and very cozy. They even provided food and drink for breakfast! The neighborhood felt safe and quiet, but easy access to freeways. The only drawback for us, and this is a small thing, was there was no sports channels on the satellite TV, such as ESPN. However, everything else was great and we would absolutely stay here again! Thank You!
This place is amazing! The cottage is perfect. It is decorated so beautifully. It is open and welcoming. The owners are fantastic! We needed a place with 2 bedrooms and having a queen and king bed worked perfectly. We love how clean and neat the place is. It is the perfect amount of space for a family. My kids loved staying there and not being in a hotel. We want to go back! Thank you to Rich and Eva.
The place is simply excellent. Very professionally done, extremely clean. Safe neighborhood, close to freeway and restaurants, and very cozy. Highly recommended to just about anyone....
My husband, 18 year old son, and myself stayed here from Sunday - Saturday. If it were possible, I would have given this property 4.5 stars.
Things our family liked/loved:
Having a king and queen size bed was perfect for our needs
We received a few breakfast items (eggs, sausage, bread, coffee and orange juice) to start our mornings off right
We also were provided wine, cheese & crackers. We didn't drink the wine, but it was a nice gesture that made us feel welcomed
Shopping areas & great restaurants in close proximity
Beautifully decorated. We really liked the décor of the house
WiFi access since I did work some while on vacation
Received refundable damage deposit back in a very timely manner
Residence in close proximity to Malibu beach. Malibu beach was beautiful, definitely a must see while visiting
Nice, quiet neighborhood
Things that weren't our favorite:
Master bedroom didn't have its own bathroom
No iron (although the owner offered to bring us one, but we made do)
Hard getting use to the mirror not being directly over the sink in the bathroom
Overall, we enjoyed our home away from home. It suited our needs and would rent again in the future.
This particular property is a guest house behind the main house. If traveling with a large group, these combined properties would make the perfect stay.
