About Karen Zethraeus

We got into vacation rental quite by accident. Building a guest house for our enormous family then turned into a money maker. VRBO & Homeaway patrons are some of the nicest people you will ever meet!

Karen Zethraeus purchased this studio in 2005

Why Karen Zethraeus chose Malibu

Heaven is a little closer to a cottage by the ocean! We have welcomed visitors from literally all over the globe. It has been such a pleasure sharing our paradise found. The property is so secluded, that there have been some guests we never even laid eyes on. We have a locals guide to share with you some of our favorite haunts, for locals only!

What makes this studio unique

This location sits 500 feet up from the ocean so the views are stunning. We have a private entrance and a private road.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has got to be the most beautiful place I've been to in California. It's so cozy and beachy in the Bungalow. We will definitely be renting again. Good times! Relaxing (w/a view) times!!!

We just returned from the beachcomber bungalow yesterday August 8-09. This property was beautiful , the views were unbelievable.It was great to drink our morning coffee on the patio overlooking the ocean .The property was everything we needed very nicely decorated and very clean . Gary and Karen are a great couple very friendly and eager to help with any information needed.We found everything we needed close by once we got to know the area .We would definitely recommend this property and we will be renting this property again. If you are considering renting this property do it you won't be dissapointed.

The bungalow has an extraordinary 180 degree view of the Pacific from high atop a canyon wall, but is also close to Matador and Zuma beaches. The bungalow itself is small, stylish, and immaculate with a handy kitchen. (It's close to a grocery store in Trancas Canyon mall). Proprietor Karen is on-site, pleasant and helpful, but is definitely unobtrusive which we appreciated. We use the bungalow occasionally when visiting family in the area and definitely recommend it.

Our stay at the Beachcomber Bungalow was SO wonderful! It was so private and so quiet. After site seeing trips to the city with our family, it was so wonderful to come "home" and sit out on that beautiful deck and look at the Pacific Ocean and it's spectacular beauty. Plus with the Super Moon it was even better! The beds were very comfortable too... every amenity was perfect. And we sincerely enjoyed visiting El Matador Beach, and it's breathtaking beauty! Perfect for our family pictures! We enjoyed many of Malibu's restaurants and even visited a few wine tasting rooms. And the grocery store at Trancas was so wonderful and so many unique items to choose from. We would sincerely love to return some day, and would definitely stay at Beachcomber Bungalow again!! Thank you Karen and Gary for offering a wonderful place to stay with great views. We will never forget our time in Malibu! Sincerely, Jill & Dave and family from Kansas.

Fabulous!! My husband and I have been traveling for the past 26 years and this was by far one of the best places we have stayed. The views are awesome. Gary and Karen are two of the nicest people, always there to answer any questions that may arise. We will definitely go back.

Wow !

  • 5 of 5

A great stay ! The view is everything and more. The unit has everything one would need, plus complete privacy, with a great patio area. A "RELAX" sign inside is totally redundant because one cannot help but relax upon arrival. Sooooo difficult to leave. So close to our favorite beach, El Pescador. Would never stay anywhere else in Malibu.

A great getaway stay

  • 5 of 5

It was our fourth stay at the Malibu Beach house. We love everything. The view, accommodations, ocean breeze, relaxing patio - all great. What's not to like about Malibu. You are located close to all the amenities that you need, grocery store (two are just a few minutes drive), beaches, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. You can grill and eat dinner on the patio. There is a gas grill for your convenience. Rental is stocked very well. We took a day for a Catalina outing (ferry out of Long Beach or San Pedro) and on another day visited the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library (go on a weekday if possible). On our way to Simi Valley we stopped at a great restaurant for lunch, Public School 805 in the Westlake Village of Thousand Oaks (just over the hill from where the Beach House is located). So many options in and around the Malibu area. Tks Karen and Gary for a great stay.
