The property was PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was so wonderful at Elliot's place. We were pleasantly content with the location as we wanted to hike and the park is with in minutes! We enjoyed the beaches as well. The hot water takes a while to get to the shower and kitchen sink, just let it run until it comes and you'll enjoy the nice shower! Elliot was available if anything was needed and shared his knowledge of the area where to eat and places to see. We took a tour of the Getty Villa and we both so enjoyed it. We would come back again.

The Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful landscaping, views, overall scenery. We absolutely loved this hidden jewel. So close to the beach, yet hidden in the mountains, very peaceful and relaxing! We didn't want to leave and come back to the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. The owner, Elliot is very attentive, and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay by texting us periodically to see if we needed anything. He has a beautiful bonsai collection, and even shared his knowledge of them. I came home with so many ideas for my house and wanting to learn all I could about the bonsai, trees, and other plants he had. This is such a beautiful place and we can't wait to come back, hopefully in the next few months.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage stay. The property was beautiful. The rental itself was immaculate, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The owner was easy to communicate with and very responsive. Just a great vibe overall here--very calm and quiet at night, close to excellent hiking trails and a couple lovely cafés too.

Charming and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

It is exactly as it looks in the pics. A little gem tucked away in the corner of the property. We went surfing in Malibu all day and enjoyed returning to the cute little cottage every evening. If you're thinking of booking....just do it! You won't be disappointed!

Away from it all and nice

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice, small cottage. The pictures are accurate. It was clean and had all the amenities listed. The cottage is next to the owners' home, but privacy is respected. The home and cottage are in a remote area, secluded, to get there you would drive through a narrow, winding road hugging the cliff of the canyon. It took me a bit to get used to it, but traffic is minimal so was not an issue. Because of its remote/secluded area the shower arrangement and the outdoor tub feel private. The high fence, bamboos and trees provides privacy. Perfectly peaceful and quiet. At night we would hear the coyotes in the distance, and in the morning the cool breeze. Very steep driveway with parking for one car. If you will be out hiking and exploring the area, probably can stay with 4 people (2 would sleep in the sofa bed). For me, 4 would be a bit tight. Perfect for 2. Distance to PCH is about 15 -20 min (probably because I drove slowly on the winding road!). Once on PCH, Santa Monica + Malibu are about 30 min on each direction. Although the distance is short - the traffic adds time. However, driving along PHC, even with stop and go traffic, is a beautiful experience enjoying the ocean, waves crashing, and the sunset. If you are looking for a remote and secluded, peaceful, quiet location, get a completely different experience than the busy environment of Hollywood, LA, or even St. Monica, in touch with nature this would be a good choice.
