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 view and contemporary accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely pre-honeymoon weekend in Malibu at this property. The view says it all - we enjoyed drinking wine and reading books on the lovely ocean view patio. Plus, Heikki is great to work with and had the unit well appointed with supplies, snacks etc. Great spot!

Back again for another stay!

  • 5 of 5

We appreciate the comfort and simplicity of the space as well as the location. Heikki's apartment is very much an oasis: close to beaches and mountain trails yet remote enough to feel off the beaten path. Great vacation place for two this year!

Hallo Heikki,

auch in diesem Jahr haben wir uns wieder sehr wohl gefühlt bei Dir.

Deinen besonderen Service mit dem vollen Kühlschrank, ist unübertroffen, es fehlt wirklich an nichts.

Gute Laune und hoffen auf Gutes Wetter muss man selbst noch mitbringen

Stunning Malibu Coast Views

  • 5 of 5

Heiki, the owner of the beautiful unit was a wonderful and gracious host who ensured our comfort prior to and at the conclusion of our trip. Truly stunning views of the breathtaking Malibu hills and coastline. Will most definitely return if brought back to Malibu or surrounding areas.

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!
