"Rental was perfect for us. (Party of 4) and could have comfortably had another couple along. The place was very clean and comfortable. We used the paddle boards and had a great time. It was very nice to have all the "extra" like chairs for the beach and bikes available. There are also several board games avaib5which we made use of in the late evenings. Great spot and would definetely stay here again!"

"76968 Breeze is a great little bungalow. My wife and daughter truly enjoyed our time there. Mike was an excellent property manager, he never seemed out of reach and was quick to respond to any issues we had (they were minor).
Let me hit all the great aspects of this bungalow. It has wood floors. It is clean. The kitchen was truly great. It is one of the main things we considered before calling this place home for a month. Fridge is new, everything worked, dishwasher was handy and reliable, sink and stove and oven, everything worked and looked good and we really appreciated that. The bathroom was clean. Nothing felt neglected. Washer and dryer worked great and were much appreciated. The TV worked fine and the digital media player was really great for nights in. (Netflix, Hulu, etc.). The wifi cut out once but Mike was quick to fix it by resetting the router. I had to log back into Netflix once and needed the username and password and Mike was quick to respond. The furnishings and fixtures inside the bungalow were good. The location was perfect, exactly what we wanted. Across the street from the beach, down a nice little path to the corner where Main and Abbot Kinney meet. Really just a great location. Once I locked my keys in the apartment and was worried this would be a terrible inconvenience for Mike. He took care of the situation right away. I'm sure I missed some of the things we really enjoyed about the place, and there were many.
Here are some of the things we feel could be improved for future visitors. A few lights were out when we moved in. The fans are great, but please have them cleaned. They were covered in dust and dog hair in all the nooks and crannies. Our only major concern. Also, a main selling point for us was that the website maintained the property was pet-free. The previous tenant obviously had dogs in the bungalow, and it took days with all the windows open to get the smell out. I like dogs and wouldn't have minded if the place was pet-friendly, but the website said otherwise and we were not expecting that at all. A heads up would have been really appreciated. Another minor thing is that the way the fridge is situated, it makes no sense for the door to open from the left, as other visitors noted. The pack and play cot for the baby was dirty and we didn't use it. I doubt future visitors with children will consider using it.
In short, a great place. Mike was truly great. No complaints. Hope to return someday. Highly recommended."

"We've rented homes - from Maine to Hawaii, this Malibu Gem was the best. We booked this getaway retreat for August. Stately, but not overstated beach charm make you at home. The character and decor calmly reminding to relax- Yes, its that nice. Amazing views/sights, we took 500+ pics during our stay. Seagulls, dolphin seals, the ocean, the ocean, the ocean. Every possible amenity was provided from corkscrew to colander. Abundance of high quality sheets, towels & pillows. Our host, Martin, could not have been more welcoming. He provided excellent, personalized (remembering my 50th) service. He was always an email or text away for help. I will rent this home again (or another from Martin). If it's booked August or September- that might mean I beat you to it! Comparing similar properties in LA beach areas – this was the best pick. Built circa 1930s, the house has original charm with modern features (WiFi/AC/DW/WD/FP). 2 levels feels like two separate spaces, never cramped for 4ppl. Note: the upstairs bedroom has widows on BOTH sides of the room –RARE- that had excellent cross breezes! To gain entry to the lower level/Master Bed (with stunning views) you have to take stairs (narrow) that are outside. On this level, the wet bar and HUGE entertainers deck with fireplace and beach access. At high tide the water comes right up to the breakwater wall. During full moons larger waves will crash into the wall and splashback will land onto the deck: AMAZING WATER SHOW sight and sounds!. The beach access is easy, not for the mobility restricted. At low tides you can beach-walk & swimming is just a few yards in either direction from the house. 2 public access beaches/surfing walking distance. A wine tasting room and trails are w/i walking distance. 2 good eaterys walkable; "Reel Inn"($$) great food/patio -always a line; and a Thai place($$) good. 5 min drive: “MoonShadows”($$$) great space, "Nobu"($$$$$) amazing space. Shopping is only 5 min drive away. There is parking for 2 vehicles. Additional parking on the other side of street. We almost never left the property. Pretty private; occasional neighbors walking along the beach at low tide. Never any noise, Malibu has pretty strict noise laws. Friday nights and Sunday afternoons can be pretty heavy traffic times if you are considering exploring.One of the best things about this home is the proximity to major LA attractions and LAX. We live in Hollywood and wanted a home close enough to commute to work from."
