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.

Incredible accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this amazing property while attending a wedding in Malibu. Not only was the place beautifully decorated, everything was thoughtfully included you would need (coffee, iPhone charger, lotions, shampoo, even some fruit and beverages). Heikki is the most amazing host and shows you everything you need but also gives you your privacy. We wouldn't have changed a thing except maybe staying longer. Thank you, Heikki, we will be returning for a much longer stay soon!

NIce view!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay near Malibu, very clean, outstanding View of ocean and coastline below.

Spacious bathroom, full kitchen and all amenities. We would stay here again, for sure.

Awesome view from sleeping areas.

Only improvement or suggestion would be the extra hide-a-bed (couch) which was a bit noisy/squeaky, if used.

I wish I could be there now...

  • 5 of 5

This place is so cute, clean and comfortable. It felt very private. The beautiful photos from the listing don't do it justice. The view of the ocean is amazing...but the shower was so hot and wonderful that I could've spent the whole trip in the bathroom. The kitchen and living space were perfect for cooking and enjoying light meals.

We had everything that we needed. there was even a printed local information guide in the rental that we used to plan some meals, grocery shopping and hikes. It was very helpful.

Great Value, Great Mix!

  • 5 of 5

Since Malibu is an expensive locale, it was great to find this reasonably priced rental. It is bright and airy and very clean and has all the amenities that you'll need. It's located a good ways up the hill from the coast so there is no traffic noise and the ocean sound is just a pleasant, distant white noise. However you are also located a reasonable distance to restaurants, beaches, grocery stores, etc. The owner provides a very informative and entertaining Guide to restaurants, beaches, hiking paths, etc. that we found most helpful. We particularly enjoyed visiting the Getty Villa and Getty L.A. Museum. And, since we're garden and nature lovers we especially enjoyed the Self Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine just north of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) on Sunset Blvd in Pacific Palisades. We look forward to an eventual return visit!

The apartment was ideal for my sun and solitude retreat. It was a peaceful week. The kitchen was stocked with nice pots n pans the bed and bath with generous linens. There was a washer and dryer for laundry too. Heikki was attentive to questions and resourceful about the area. I think the highest praise is the desire to return and I'm checking my calendar for next year! En tusen tack Heikki !!!

An Amazing Stay-cation

  • 5 of 5

I booked this studio as a stay-cation for my boyfriend on the weekend of his birthday. Upon arriving, which was about an hour before sunset, we were immediately enthralled and fell in love with this quaint studio apartment. The views are beyond spectacular, the overall layout and aesthetic of the place is welcoming and the owner very hospitable. I would recommend this place to any couple or individual looking to get away from the chaos, as it is secluded. My boyfriend and I had a night in Malibu - dinner at Nobu and drinks after at Moonshadows. It was no trouble getting an Uber to the location if that would be of worry and plenty of things to do (even in the cooler L.A. winter months) around the place. Grocery store is located only a 5 minute drive away, which was super convenient. Stay here, I urge you, stay here!
