Guestbook comments from the owner

Ram is a good guest. Ram wanted to rent my apartment for a movie shoot. We had a long email discussion about his project and what it requires and so on. I was somewhat hesitant to let Ram rent but I finally did so.

Everything Ram described in advance turned out to be true. Number of cars, number of people, how noisy and all my other concerns were exactly as Ram presented them to me.

Ram is cleasrly an A+ guest.

Wonderful, serene and modern.

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a little romantic getaway in Malibu. The owner provided for everything with the best of hospitality in mind - an abundance of nice clean towels, toiletries, phone chargers, bluetooth speakers, amenities and even a welcome prosecco. The place is pristine and well decorated with a modern flair. The view is the best of all - worth a return trip.

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Things we loved:

- The bathroom. So big, so nice. The concrete shower was fantastic. Lots of towels.

- The food. Heikki had the apt stocked with a few food items...this was sooooo appreciated after a long day of traffic getting to Malibu.

- The personal greeting: Heikki was there to say hello when we arrived and goodbye when we left. He is adorable.

- The guide: Heikki has written this printed guide about all the stuff to do and see in Malibu that is both curmudgeonly and immensely entertaining. I read the whole thing. Sounds weird...but it was seriously funny. The guy has some good jokes. I recommend.

- The iron: After a week of slobbing around the beach, I wanted to look nice and iron my skirt...Heikki had this super heavy duty Rowena iron available in the apt that was so amazing to use that I got on Amazon and ordered my own today.

- Peace and quiet: We wanted time alone and we got it. No noise or disturbances, just gorgeous views and peace.

- Hiking: After reading about it in the guide, we hiked through the neighborhood to Zuma Canyon trail, which was super tough and awesome!!! Great way to exercise in the area!

- The view from the bed: You're up so high it looks like the ocean is rising up into the sky to meet your view while you're lying in bed. So great. So happy.

- The ants: Heikki anticipated the little fire ants hanging around and stocked our place with a vinegar spray to take care of it...very thoughtful.

Hope to return again someday. It was heavenly.
