About Liz Bowlus

I was raised on the east coast but always knew in my heart that I would live in California. After renting in Malibu for a few summers I decided to take a lease for a year...this began my journey in finding my sanctuary. It took me a few years actively looking for a house I felt "at home" in. Once I drove through the gates I knew I would call the Rolling Stone Cottage home.

I love the lifestyle of Malibu, the laid back feel, it suits me well. It gives me great pleasure to welcome visitors and share this property with my guests.

Liz Bowlus purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Liz Bowlus chose Malibu

The property has such a magical feel and is located on one of the prettiest streets in Malibu. The neighborhood has a country vibe even though it is so close to the beach. Horses take their daily strolls on our street and surfers carry their surf boards across PCH to ride the waves on Zuma. At the end of the street you will find a beautiful hike into the Santa Monica Mountains. This is truly the best of all worlds. I hope you are able to visit and see for yourself.

What makes this cottage unique

Even though the house is situated close to PCH it feels so removed. It's trees and koi ponds make the property feel like a sanctuary. Butterflies, Yellow Finch, Hummingbirds, Koi and a turtle named Mick grace the Rolling Stone Cottage grounds. Delight in the rose garden, or sample plums, apricots, avocado, tangerines or pears from the many trees during season.

Walk across the street to Zuma and Westward Beach or up the street to hike in the Santa Monica Mountains. Walk to restaurants, bars, and grocery store.

Beautiful Contemporary Cottage

Verified Stay

Can't say enough about our time in Malibu. We were greeted by Liz, the owner, who immediately made us feel welcome. Everyting inside was well thought out- from the bowl of fresh fruit and choice of trail mix (with goji berries) to the paraban-free shampoos , conditioner and shower gel. Super comfortable place to work, with hi-speed internet, and two work desks. Cute shops and restaurants up the street, AMAZING hiking in Decker Canyon. Looking forward to returning!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the cottage. This rental is meant for adults only -- decor is all light colors (white rug, cream colored side chairs--beautiful but not kid-friendly!)

Also, most (if not all) meals would have to be at restaurants (rental has coffee maker and small refrigerator so we were able to have continental breakfast a few mornings). The owner was wonderful to work with and the area is beautiful -- be sure to visit Zuma Canyon and other hiking trails and Zuma Beach. Unfortunately it rained for a good portion of our stay so our time outdoors was limited. We also enjoyed going to the Cinepolis Luxury Theatre in West Lake Village -- the best movie theatre I've ever been to!!

The Perfect Getaway!

Could not have chosen a better place to stay during our Malibu weekend! The cottage is perfectly decorated, so cozy and the short walk to Zuma beach was exactly what we were looking for. This is the second time we've stayed at this cottage, and we will definitely be back! Thank you Liz for an amazing stay!

A romantic storybook wedding

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Liz was kind enough to allow us to use her stunning back yard as our wedding venue when we ran into some trouble with our beach venue. Our wedding was what dreams are made of. Truly. I couldn't have painted a more beautiful dream like scenario for our special day. Because of the gorgeous foliage, colors, and the unique set up we needed very little decoration. You will never want to leave this tranquil and picturesque secret garden. We also chose to stay in the suite for a few days to kick off our honeymoon. It was perfection. My husband couldn't stop talking about the cozy yet elegant decor. And don't get me started on that bathroom with the claw tub. Our wedding, and everything surrounding it, was made possible because of this lovely gracious women who was kind enough allow us to start our journey of life in the serenity of her charming fairytale like backyard. Thank you, Liz! We look forward to coming back for another stay to relive this unforgettable day.

Practically perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

As I enjoyed my weekend stay at Rolling Stone Cottage, I kept thinking Liz must be related to Mary Poppins. The cottage is practically perfect in every way. Liz is the ultimate hostess, providing resources and recommendations for nearby activities and creating a truly magical spot to enjoy in beautiful Malibu and leaving space to connect if needed, and if not, to simply enjoy. I fell in love with the giant trees in her yard and sitting near the pond. And the bed!

I loved every minute of my weekend at Rolling Stone Cottage and look forward to returning for a peaceful, easy getaway!

P.S. The wine selection in the nearby Von's grocery store is one of the BEST in Los Angeles county.
