                                                                    This place is perfect for a little romantic getaway in Malibu. The owner provided for everything with the best of hospitality in mind - an abundance of nice clean towels, toiletries, phone chargers, bluetooth speakers, amenities and even a welcome prosecco. The place is pristine and well decorated with a modern flair. The view is the best of all - worth a return trip.

                                                                    Beautiful, private and quiet.

                                                                    Jeffrianne Y.Des Moines, IA

                                                                    We stayed for two nights. It’s beautiful with a gorgeous view and quiet location. The owner is delightful, and the check-in process is seamless. We will stay here again!

                                                                    Didn't want to leave

                                                                    Kelley K.

                                                                    Things we loved:

                                                                    - The bathroom. So big, so nice. The concrete shower was fantastic. Lots of towels.

                                                                    - The food. Heikki had the apt stocked with a few food items...this was sooooo appreciated after a long day of traffic getting to Malibu.

                                                                    - The personal greeting: Heikki was there to say hello when we arrived and goodbye when we left. He is adorable.

                                                                    - The guide: Heikki has written this printed guide about all the stuff to do and see in Malibu that is both curmudgeonly and immensely entertaining. I read the whole thing. Sounds weird...but it was seriously funny. The guy has some good jokes. I recommend.

                                                                    - The iron: After a week of slobbing around the beach, I wanted to look nice and iron my skirt...Heikki had this super heavy duty Rowena iron available in the apt that was so amazing to use that I got on Amazon and ordered my own today.

                                                                    - Peace and quiet: We wanted time alone and we got it. No noise or disturbances, just gorgeous views and peace.

                                                                    - Hiking: After reading about it in the guide, we hiked through the neighborhood to Zuma Canyon trail, which was super tough and awesome!!! Great way to exercise in the area!

                                                                    - The view from the bed: You're up so high it looks like the ocean is rising up into the sky to meet your view while you're lying in bed. So great. So happy.

                                                                    - The ants: Heikki anticipated the little fire ants hanging around and stocked our place with a vinegar spray to take care of it...very thoughtful.

                                                                    Hope to return again someday. It was heavenly.

                                                                    Wonderful in every way!

                                                                    Jaime S.Arizona
