Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us and our two small children (6 and 2). The boys loved having the beach toys and it was amazing to be right on the sand (when we arrived, our 6yo wondered how we would sleep at night with the sound of the waves, ha!). The hot tub was perfect for warming up after splashing in the waves. The kitchen was awesome, and it was so convenient to have a washer and dryer available. Thank you!

All around excellent property and stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have been happier with your stay! The view was absolutely amazing and the house had anything and everything you will need! The value for the money spent was above and beyond anything we expected. The area around the house has great restaurants and anything else you might want. Highly recommend staying here!!

Life's not a beach

  • 1 of 5

The first morning of our relaxing girls getaway my friend and I awoke to a pouring, splashing waterfall at 7:16am coming from the laundry room ceiling. The floor was drenched and water splashing everywhere so we ran to the kitchen and grabbed a huge mixing bowl to catch the water. Immediately, we called the emergency contact number on the (outdated and vague) manual provided for us: a woman answered to tell me that she no longer worked there. She gave me contact info for the owner and I immediately called to tell him what was happening as the water continued to pour down drenching the wood floor, (forget the fact that my friend and I scheduled massages that morning!). The owner said that he never had an issue like this before, and not to worry it will be taken care of as soon as possible. He said he wasn’t there and asked me to go upstairs, find the the handyman and ask him to fix the leak. We were asked to leave the house and it would be “all fixed” in an hour. When we returned a few hours later, the water was stopped and there was a patch where they cut into the ceiling. A blip on our radar, and we continued on with our vacation determined to make the best of it.

We had rescheduled our massages, and during the massages at 2:24pm another rush of raining/pouring water started up again. Great way to relax! We called the owner (again) and he casually said it would be taken care of not to worry. He told us to walk around it, no big deal! Again, for the second time that day, my friend and I left the house to let the handyman and his helper scramble to figure out the problem. We were so upset the entire day was shot, for we didn’t want to leave the house with our valuables unlocked with two complete strangers. The owner had zero sympathy for us. Why would we ever want to stay in a place that is so poorly managed and kept up? The utter disregard and carelessness by the owner was not our idea of a beach getaway that we have worked so hard to earn. Furthermore, all hours of the day, you could hear children's pounding footsteps and screaming. Stay away!

Beverly Hills, Ca

Great location but not so great amenities

  • 2 of 5

Being right on the beach was wonderful but the house felt more like a storage place for the owner’s left over things than a rental vacation home. The silverware was tarnished, cooking pans were rusted and severely scratched, the blenders were rusted and did not work. We’ve rented in Malibu many times before and for the same amount of money and the house was equipped with new supplies for guests. There were also workers banging and using tools the whole time during our stay. They poured beer over their balcony that dropped onto ours. We were sadly disappointed with the overall stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input. We did notice that the bottom of a few of the pans appears to be burned from cooking and this is not rust. Nevertheless, we want our guests to have a perfect stay and we have upgraded all of the kitchen utensils with new ones. The blender's switch is on the bottom and it can be confusing. We do not have any personal things on the property at all and this is a rental property. The pots and pans were not new--you are correct. We are sorry if there were workers on the property--there should not have been. You were here over the Thanksgiving holiday and there should not have been workers here. All of our guests are provided our cell phone numbers and we have other area homes in Malibu and are always close by. You were also provided all of our contact information as well and we heard nothing from you during your stay. You could have called us, or let us know there were issues. We also have a property manager you met when you arrived who also could have assisted you with any issues you were having. We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay and appreciate your input very much. We have upgraded the pots and pans, spoken to our painting company about the incident and also made sure there are clearer instructions for blenders and other kitchen utensils in the home.
