About This Listing
The cottage is ideal for two with a garden over-looking a lovely pool, waterfall and jacuzzi all on a gentle hillside over-looking Pt. Dume, Zuma Beach and Broadbeach. I've lived in the main house on another level of the property since '77.
Small cottage over-looking pool in garden setting, one small bedroom with queen-size bed, (a single bed may be added in the living room), closet, shower, kitchen off small living room, W/D, one parking space (more easy parking on safe street), private entrance in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. My family has lived on this property since ''77, enjoying its relaxed, 'old Malibu' elegant/rustic feeling. We are 5 minutes by car to Zuma Beach, market, gas stations, banks, restaurants and bus stops, close to hiking trails, and main freeway access to Hollywood, Universal Studios, Venice Beach, Santa Monica and Channel Islands Harbor.

Anndrea was a great host! She was very accessible and accommodating throughout the booking process. When we arrived, she was very welcoming. The place met more than every expectation! We had a great time enjoying the pool and jacuzzi! We will definitely make a trip back to the pool cottage.
This was our first booking through Airbnb. It couldn't have been better. It is a peaceful, tranquil, and quiet place, but not too far secluded. Anndrea was welcoming and helpful and always there when needed. The cottage is great and basic and just as described, though the real inside tips are the clean and inviting pool and the adjacent hot tub. Note: They are shared with the guests of Anndrea's two other cottages, which didn't bother us. Everyone who would like to experience the "old" Malibu: Book now—before it's too late!
We enjoyed our stay in the poolside garden house. You walk from parking space through a garden, passing a pair of cooing doves, around the pool and hot tub built into the hillside rocks and trees to the pool house, entered by a sliding glass door. We had no problem as 3 guests, two of us in the bedroom and a teenager on the sofa. There is a folding mattress in the main room, but we didn't need it. There's not much privacy between the bedroom, bathroom and living room if you're more than a couple, but that's part of the quirks expected in every airbnb experience. The kitchen is well appointed with pans for cooking breakfast eggs (from local Malibu hens, purchased from Vintage grocery), large range and fridge, and a shaded table by the pool.
The pool and hot tub are wonderful. Heat up the body under the stars, then swim in the unheated pool to cool off. There are two other guest units on the property, so be prepared to share the hot tub if your schedules overlap. We had no problem, the only other guests using the tub were polite and respectful.
We love staying in Malibu when we come to SoCal from the Bay Area. We went to Getty Villa, Pepperdine campus, and westside beach. For food, we recommend Malibu Seafood, Duck and Dive gastropub and Vintage Grocers.
My mom and I loved staying at Anndrea's Poolside Cottage. It was a perfect location near PCH- the best of Malibu was easily accessible. Anndrea was very helpful and welcoming. The garden and pool area were beautiful and the main reason I booked the place, but unfortunately we were hit with a rare cloudy and rainy day and couldn't use it. But I would recommend staying here to anyone.
Anndrea gives such a happy vibe when we first arrived. She welcomed us with such a warming smile we already felt like we were home. She showed us around and had everything prepared for us. The swimming pool is to die for. It was perfect to swim in even tho it wasn't super hot. The cottage is very smaller than expected but it was the perfect size for me and two girlfriends. I definitely enjoyed my experience, and especially it being my first airbnb experience, I was beyond satisfied. Thank you Anndrea !
The seclusion and views were amazing! This end of Malibu was so quiet and beautiful we almost felt like locals instead of tourists! The cottage was darling & Anddrea was very accomodating and always helpful. We loved the rustic feel, the jacuzzi, the views. The doves cooed good morning to us each day!
Anndrea was very accommodating! It is a rambling and rustic property and has a true Malibu country feel! The hot tub has powerful jets and the pool is very deep. The cottage itself is adorable! It looks just like the photos in the listing! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time. It's also very close to Zum beach, which was handy.
Thanks for the suggestions. I will certainly change the amenity listing so it does not read "good for events"; thanks for bringing it to my awareness. (As you know I had no idea you were planning such a big event until you arrived!) The family that did arrive the next day needed the extra bed; its a challenge to satisfy everyone's different needs!
