Rich jewel-tones, creme walls and sheepskins on ceramic tiles in this colorful private, upstairs unit. It sits on a hill. Serene surroundings. COMFY King memory-foam bed, private patio. Special rates for a week or longer stays. I'd love to host you!

The Space

Sensual atmosphere with dimmers on most of the lights... Rich canopy of colors, with ambient lighting surrounds the bed in an aura of a lush Tantric Temple! A bottle warmer for Massage oils is available to use. Perfect for a romantic getaway or a nurturing self-care experience. Plenty of places to commune with nature just outside your door!

We are often visited by bunnies, owls and deer roaming the hillsides!

Presently dates are flexible, I do a lot of road trips and always travel on a one-way ticket!

I wish to establish ongoing regular arrangements with a trusted 'family' of kindred travelers.

Both units are often available depending on our travel schedules. Advance notice is helpful as we also live here.

Guest Access

Plenty of luxurious towels and linens available.

Kitchen fully equipped with stove/oven, Jack Lalanne Juicer, bullet type blender, cappuccino machine, Excalibur food dehydrator, ceramic cookery, health-conscious kitchen.

Stocked full of condiments and seasonings you are free to use to help you feel very much at home.

  • We stayed at Marilyn's recently while we were in town for a wedding. Marilyn was very accommodating and flexible. We had asked ahead of time if we can arrange flowers for the wedding at the studio, and she allowed us, and even offered more tables for us to work with. The room itself was spacious even though it was a studio, and it had more than what we needed. Location was fantastic as it was 10 minutes to anywhere we needed to go for errands. And the bed was super comfortable and the surroundings were calming and peaceful. We are grateful to have found great hosts! Thank you to Mare and LeRoy for a great stay.

  • Our stay at Marilyn's home was wonderful.
    She was super helpful and accommodating and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we wanted.
    The studio was perfect for our holiday and the area was peaceful and beautiful.
    I would recommend anyone interesting in staying here to do so.
    We had an amazing time.
    Thank you.

    Thanks for your love, It was special to know that you were talking your wedding vows at that time - I could feel a glow in the air even after you left! Love lingers! <3

  • Thank you Mare for such a wonderful stay in your beautiful studio. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would highly recommend to anybody else considering staying at your sanctuary.

    We found your property to have a very clean energy, is located in an idyllic and peaceful spot near Malibu lake and has one of the comfiest beds we have ever slept on :-)

  • Marilyn's Place was great. My Chihuahua and I were very comfortable there. thanks for the hospitality.

  • Marilyn's place is great. Great for one or a couple. It's secluded and quiet with a huge comfortable bed. The view is amazing and although secluded in feel, it is very close to Trader Joes and some great restaurants.

  • Marilyn and LeeRoy were excellent hosts. Their communications were prompt and pleasant providing 5-star service. The area is incredibly beautiful, and going there feels a bit like it might visiting Shambhala. The place is a magical hideout that few people and even locals don't know exists. The bathrooms were clean and the bed super comfortable. I had one of the best sleeps there in a long time.

    Response from Marilyn:

    Thank you Jonathan. It was delightful to host you and Adelle [sp?]. Though we didn't spend time together, your were like instant family.
    Glad you took time to enjoy the magic here, too!
    Hope you come again. Embrace!

  • Marilyn's (Mare) place worked out great for us. It was a comfortable sanctuary with a great bed & lots of ambiance. Mare is friendly and mellow and very helpful pointing out local attractions and restaurants. The location is beautiful with views of Lake Malibou & the surrounding mountains.

  • I am delighted to be back for my second stay at this magical cottage. I'm loving every minute of it! Now how to explain how wonderful it is here, not easy!

    One neighbor described it as "living inside a snow globe, it feels like a dream." And it does! Nestled in among the celebrity mansions strewn about these hills is this amazing little hideaway of bohemians and creatives. It looks like Alabama and you'll wonder where in the world you are!

    Marilyn's studio is sensual and feels like a place of deep power. It's a perfect place to enjoy nature and find your own bliss. There's even a teepee!

    Marilyn is also a wonderful hostess who's made sure I'm comfortable and happy in every way - including having lots of privacy to write and create while also becoming a wonderful friend.

    It's an enchanted place. I hope you'll stay here, too! (Just not when I want to come back - which I will, and often!)

  • The location is great, just minutes off the 101 freeway and near the beach through Malibu Canyon. Cozy and interestingly decorated (I love the purple velvet tapestry pillows!), the space offers a spiritual feel. Marilyn is very pleasant and helpful. I especially appreciated the complete written information about the area and the house when I arrived.
