Sparkling clean11 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

Our Malibu Park bungalow is 5 minutes from Zuma Beach and two blocks from a Santa Monica Mountains trailhead for expansive ocean view hiking: it is cozy and private, with a King size antique brass bed and a comfortable Queen sofa bed in the living area. This small guest unit built in 1950 is lovingly appointed with everything you will need for your Malibu vacation: it is also a perfect workspace for creatives/writers, with an outdoor bar and a private sitting area for reading and relaxing!

A great little cottage located around a little community. Great to get away from the city with amazing sites and views surrounding the area.

Jennifer’s Place was perfect for what we were looking for in Malibu. She was helpful, easy to communicate with, and had great suggestions of places to go in the area. Her home was clean and in a great location. Would 100% recommend.

Dumpy location, old couch and shopping chart on the grounds not what you expected to see for a price of $500 a night. The beach is a 5 min drive. Hard to walk it because there is no side walk and cottage on a steep hill. Not easy access to the beach. Carol who ran the place …

Laurie, Yes, we did offer you early checkin and we did offer to do your laundry: we are glad that you noted that our cottage was clean and the beds comfy. We have absolutely no idea what you are referring to regarding the "price of $500 a night". At the height of the summer our rate is just under $200 a night. There is an additional charge of $25 after the first two guests, so in your case that fee applied only to your third guest. I will contact Airbnb to see what occurred with your reservation, as Airbnb certainly did not pay us more than double our usual rate. p.s. regarding the "old couch": my daughter is a college student who was home between semesters and had just found a perfect couch for her apartment..... the couch you saw was upside down because it was being moved the day you visited. As our Airbnb listing indicates, we have an "Old Malibu" property with all of the requisite charm -- and also the eccentrics -- that go along with that. If you read our previous reviews, you will see that our guests are almost always delighted with the experience of staying in a unique, family setting. Next time, we hope you will find what you are looking for. Certainly if you have budgeted $500 per night you might be happier choosing a more traditional hotel experience. Take care and good luck and safe travels, Jennie and Carol

The cottage is too small for 4 people and too expensive for what it offers. I believed I was closer to the beach and with a garden where I could benefit from the fresh air. The patio is small and at the end of the property, you have a wall in front of you. In any case, everythin…

Daniela, So sorry that you felt the cottage was small for four people. We’ve never gotten that feedback before, and have had lots of happy guests who were comfortable in both the king and queen beds,...... we take special care to provide 1000 count white cotton linens and extra pillows for your comfort. We tell everyone in our listing that the cottage is small, but it has everything our guests need including outdoor space for BBQing and having meals outdoors at the table that accommodates four people. We also let people know that our cottage is secluded and perfect for privacy and enjoying the natural beauty of Malibu’s warm beach days, hiking trails and dark, starry nighttime skies. Regarding the price, we have always received nothing but positive feedback, as we keep our nightly rate at the low end of the price points for summer Malibu getaways. We also offered you guys an early check in to give you some additional time to enjoy our beautiful Malibu beaches. You might choose a more traditional hotel experience rather than an Airbnb rental... that way you would have access to a much larger, albeit shared, common area. Sending you best wishes for your future travels, Jennie and Carol

Cute, clean and comfortable cottage. Very close to Zuma Beach and there’s a trail head at the top of the hill. Highly recommend.

The space was perfect for a cozy restful weekend with friends and a taste of Malibu. We had privacy for our group, but easy access to hosts if anything came up. The Wifi was spotty due to location, we managed just fine. A beautiful setting with kind hosts.

Highly recommend. Quiet neighborhood but super close to the beach. Very private but hosts are right next door to help and offer places to eat etc. It was the perfect amount of space for two, maybe for three as well. Bed was the comfiest bed I've ever had in an Airbnb BY FAR...I'v…

I am a mother, a mediator and a Malibu resident. I do yoga and walk on the beach daily, eat healthy foods, and love my "Old Malibu" home. Built in 1950, our home was the first built in our Malibu Park neighborhood: we are only the second lucky owners of this classic Malibu ranc…
