The Space

Small cottage over-looking pool in garden setting, one small bedroom with queen-size bed, (for a third guest, a single bed may be added), closet, bathroom with 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.

Check In
  • Anndrea's cottage was perfect for my 10 year old son and I. Close proximity to many beautiful beaches and a refreshing pool / spa to come home to after a day of salt and sand. Quiet neighborhood with views of the ocean through the trees. Very lush grounds with privacy from the main house. A hiking trail at the top of the street and a nice grocery (Vintage Grocers) less than 5 minutes away. We cooked most meals at the cottage and packed lunches for the beach. Anndrea provided towels for showers / beach and beach chairs when requested. She was attentive and I appreciated her checking in on us and providing suggestions for beaches for us to visit. I would recommend this cottage if you are looking for a comfortable stay in a unique environment.

  • We had an amazing two days in Malibu. Anndrea was a great host. Her cottage was the perfect birthday getaway for two. It's minutes to the beach and some amazing restaurants. She's provided everything you need at home as well. Kitchen was stocked with dishes, huge fridge, we cooked ribs in the oven, there's wifi and cable which was great for watching the World Cup game. I could barely get out of the hot tub all weekend. It was just a great two days. I've already recommended it to my friends.

  • Great location, minutes from Zuma beach. There was a slight water problem the night we stayed there. They were doing work on the stret and forgot to turn it back on all the way. So no showers or water for us. Anndrea said she was going to compensate us for our troubles. Once she does, I will complete my review.

  • Andrea and Rich were kind and gracious hosts who worked hard to ensure we had a great stay. Both were very accommodating and provided great advice on things to do in the area and places to eat. The location of the cottage was a couple of miles from the ocean, but provided a nice view of the ocean and surrounding area. Great trails for hiking were very close which were really nice for enjoying a sunset. The pool and jacuzzi were by far our favorite part of cottage rental and we enjoyed them multiple times each day we were there. The inside of the cottage is quaint and relaxing. The only thing about the property I would point out to others would be about the driveway - it's very steep and so if your vehicle sits low to the ground, you will be better off parking on the street outside of the property or will risk bottoming out your car. Overall, I would certainly recommend this location and will have great memories from staying here!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Anndrea's place which is really close to everything (Zuma beach, Santa Monica, etc) while still providing a relaxing and natural environment.
    Thank you !

  • We loved our stay at Anndrea's pool cottage - it is an amazing place, with beautiful surroundings and cozy interiors. It was the perfect base to visit LA and enjoy the Californian beach lifestyle - driving back home to Malibu was a little holiday in itself every time! Absolutely wonderful place, we would be happy to come back! Thanks again Anndrea!

  • Great place to get away from the city! We were visiting my fiance's family in LA but wanted a few days away from the city and nearer the beach. The cottage is surrounded by a garden and fruit trees and located just a few minutes from scenic Point Dume, Zuma and El Matador beaches. It offers a very private setting that is quiet and peaceful at night with a great view of the stars. There is a small kitchen with every thing you need to prepare small meals, or just to keep some beer cold, and a nice market located on PCH not far from the cottage. While there is a hot tub and a pool, due to an unusual heat wave at the time we spent more time in the pool cooling off after sightseeing. Highly recommended for couples in the area looking for a secluded spot to chill for a few days.

  • The location is beyond beautiful and relaxing. We arrived rather late. Anndrea had turned on the hot tub and, after a long drive in from an event we had to attend far away, the location plus the hot tub equalled the best night's sleep ever. We definitely will stay again, and intend to have several days to rest and enjoy the pleasures of this cottage!

  • Our experience was excellent! I went to Malibu to work; install a large sculpture in a private home. It's hard work and we loved having the hot tub by the pool for a saok each night. The stay was like being at home.

  • We had a great time in Malibu and the stay at Andrea's cottage was wonderful. The location is convenient and allowed us quick access to Zuma beach as well as to Pepperdine for graduation. It is also very peaceful with the sound of the waterfall from the Jacuzzi down to the pool and birds being all you hear most of the time.

    I only wish we had found this my son's freshman year instead of right at graduation. If we venture back to Malibu we will certainly stay with Andrea again.
