One of our best family vacations ever
We like nice things, but we also have a family and wanted something down-to-earth and comfortable. This experience delivered on both counts. When you step onto the property you are greeted with that woodsy, chaparral scent that is so prevalent in the california mountains. In the evenings you will hear a symphony of crickets because the home is surrounded by natural beauty.With two swings and a wide open layout, the back yard is perfect for little ones, but the outdoor entertaining area is ideal for grown-up time-- barbecuing, sipping wine, and long relaxing dinners. The front yard is also enclosed, and we were very taken with the charming neighborhood. Inside it is very clean. There are comfortable rooms and beautiful decor, with an overall energy that felt very warm and positive. The nearby restaurants are great, and the local gourmet grocery store was perfect for getting food for the wonderful meals we had out on the patio. It is within driving distance of some areas perfect for outdoor exploration, but we actually loved being in the house and getting in lots of relaxation. The owner is super friendly and accessible when needed for questions, although we didn't have many as she will leave yo detailed information about the house and the surrounding area. She even asked us our children's ages and left out age-appropriate toys for them to play with. We would love the chance to come back next time we vacation in Malibu.
