Guestbook comments from the manager

New York, New York -

Never really thought we would be this close, so fast. Didn’t really know what to expect. First plane ride and it was to this special place.

Thank you for such an amazing experience it was more than anything I could have asked for.

The apartment had everything we needed. The kids loved the beach toys and I loved the beach lounges. Checkin was straight forward and easy. No dramas at all. It was simply wonderful. The bed was incredibly comfy as well.

Place was perfect. Clean comfortable and great location. Waves right up to the deck. Highly recommend. Got deposit back within a few days of checkout.

Waves Crashing Below

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to spend some time with our daughter before she heads off to her first year in college, and even though we live only an hour's drive from Malibu, thought it would be fun to get an ocean front spot and enjoy the Malibu lifestyle. Seal was exactly as advertised, with waves literally crashing almost underneath the property at high tide. Easy access to a beautiful and very sparsely populated beach. Very nice deck to sit on, which we did often throughout our stay. Everything you need is here, and the only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it is has some wear-and-tear (although I like it's beach cottage vibe and it is easy to feel very comfortable here). We will definitely return and highly recommend it if you do not require like-new decor.

I happen to own a restaurant down the street, so if VRBO will allow me, I will put in a plug for Marmalade Cafe. After experiencing the prices in Malibu (especially at the tourist-oriented businesses) it is clear that Marmalade offers great price value for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Located about a mile North on Pacific Coast Highway in the Cross Creek shopping center, come pay us a visit! You can look-up our menus online at marmaladecafe.com.

Again big fan of VRBO (had a great experience in Napa Valley as well) and plan on making this an annual visit with our daughter!

Adorable Abode

  • 5 of 5

The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The condo is a corner location, so the view was spectacular! The decor is light and airy and everything felt clean. The entire unit was extremely well equipped. Kudos to whoever figured out how to think of EVERYTHING. We stayed there with our 2 young sons and felt that there was enough room for all 4 of us. You'll want to pass the hours away on the balcony, so bring extra chairs if there are more than 2 of you. The tide comes up high and is beautiful to watch it crash into the rocks just below you. With this in mind, you will find areas to the left or right of the complex to sit in the sand during low tide. Staying right on the sand/water is chicken soup for the soul and you will be glad that you found this little gem!

Fantastic Property In The Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2-weeks in the Seal apartment with my teenage son. Surfed Malibu first point almost every day, very busy break even getting up at first light we were not alone in the water. Then used the apartment as a base to visit all that LA and surrounding area had to offer. Seal is very well equipped and appointed. The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived late in the evening and there were plenty of clean towels & sheets to last us the 2-week stay.

The sound of the ocean is loud as noted in a couple of the other reviews, but this was one of my favourite things about the place, you wake up and the sea is right there.

Only one tiny issue while we were there with a glitchy WiFi signal, however, I reported this to the management team and it was resolved within a day, great responsiveness.

Would recommend this place to anyone who loves the water and would love to go back myself.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

The one thing that stood out to me about this property above all others was that the owner said "this is not a party house". Sold! I don't want to say how much we loved this place because everyone will want to stay here! One previous reviewer said it best; it's not brand new but it is well maintained and loved. I was in love the moment I walked in the door. The waves are so loud when the tide comes in, combined with the cool ocean breeze makes a perfect sleeping environment. The bed was very comfortable and firm. There's a nice sized TV in the bedroom and a very large closet. The bathroom is a good size and in very good condition. The kitchen is the most worn but is charming just the same and everything works. The large TV in the livingroom was great for a lazy evening of watching movies. We never got tired of the beautiful ocean view and watching the Pelicans fish for their meals. We got to see the fireworks shot off the Malibu pier, which is only two minutes away. And on a clear day, you can see the coast from Santa Monica all the way to El Segundo. One thing to note; you are not facing west, so (pro) no blinding afternoon sun but (con) no sunset vistas. The way the land curves, you are actually facing south. In a way that's better because you always have the best light. I was concerned that there might be noise since we were immediately adjacent to the Malibu Beach Inn but they were very quiet neighbors. Even for a holiday weekend, it wasn't very crazy on this section of the beach. The crashing waves just about drown out all other sounds. We really enjoyed this cute little beach property and would love to return.

The unique part about this area of Malibu is that everything is very near; world class restaurants and several modestly priced cafes, fitness centers, health spas, surfing lessons and rentals, kayak and diving rentals, wine tasting, trendy local stores for shopping and experiencing the flavor of Malibu.
