“Lori’s place was a wonderful weekend getaway and peaceful retreat from the chaos of 2020. Lori and Bill were kind enough to give us an in person tour upon arrival, and were both wearing masks. It was easy to see their love and pride for the space. The indoor space had many amenities and thoughtful touches. The kitchen may look small, but has a stove, microwave oven, and dishwasher. We did not eat out as much due to COVID, and easily made several meals. The outdoor deck was a great space to enjoy the sun and the valley wind. It was very relaxing to watch and listen to the calls of birds who lived in a nearby tree. The property is also located near many hiking trails which can easily accessed.”
Beautiful apartment in a mature forest. It is part of our main home, but separate, with its own private secured entrance.
“Mathias and Swanny have created a cozy and welcoming space for travelers to rest. I came here with my mom and we loved it! The bed was comfortable and everything you need is provided - and then some! Laundry detergent, water bottles, seasonings for cooking, pots/pans, plenty of towels, etc. It was a short drive to the beautiful beaches of Malibu (10 minutes) and is close to restaurants and stores. Cell phone service was very limited for us indoors (we have AT&T) but outside it was ok and the WiFi connection was great. If you are looking for an affordable, clean, comfortable place to stay near Malibu then this is the place for you!”

“This was the absolute BEST Air bnB I have ever stayed at! You will be so happy you booked here, I was looking for a cozy time away with my husband and I wanted something seculded but beautiful and sparkling clean. I have stayed in Airbnb all over the world including Barcelona, Miami and Los Angeles. This was my favorite experience SO far. Isabelle is an amazing hostess. Her thoughtfulness and the responsiveness was absolutely amazing. She has set up such a gorgeous place and the pictures literally do not do it justice. She has this incredible collection of lighting that is just awesome to go to bed to and wake up to. Theres lots to do as Malibu is nearby , great restaurants, if you have a chance check out Laal Mirch - Indian food, absolutely awesome. Also, we found a Thai place that was across the ocean like a shack, but some of the best Thai food we have found. Isabelles place is sparkling clean. I was worried since its in the mountains would there be bugs or other weird things, but I did not find anything at all. This place is so clean. She washes the sheets and dries them in the sun and makes sure she has a long enough time between guests so that the place is spic and span. I am honestly looking to go back and would love to send my BFF as well as my parents here. Its perfect for a couple with maybe an older child. I would not recommend it for someone with small kids, Isabelles place is really beautiful and some of the items look pricy and are shipped from Italy and France, I dont believe its kid friendly for little children who like sparkly things :) Overall, you can expect a super clean, super awesome decorated place thats a perfect cozy hideaway but has all the amenenties of a larger area. LOVED my time at Isabelles, cant say enough great things!”
