One bathroom, full kitchen, modern style.

Sleeps two in the main bed, another two in the couch sofa bed.

Brand new remodeled apartment, new to AirBnB, first time on the market (that's why no reviews yet), immaculate, full of natural light. Private deck with white-water views of Zuma Beach. Peaceful quiet setting. Private entrance, off-street parking.

Cell phone reception may be iffy unless you have ATT or Sprint.

No fenced dog available but the deck might work -depending on how high your dogs are capable of jumping.

Interaction with guests

You have all your privacy for yourself -short of occasionally asking if there's anything I can do for you. I may or may not be there during your stay.

The neighborhood

Very (very!) quiet neighborhood and also a dark neighborhood and so there are no street lights. You can see the stars and Milky Way from here -weather permitting.

Getting around

Public transport? Are you kidding me?
There's a bus to Santa Monica (east) every 30 minutes or so. No public transport that I know of to west or north.
Pepperdine University is 9 miles away via PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) -usually uncongested ride except in hot summer weekends.

My stay here was wonderful. My host kept in touch the whole time leading up to my stay. He was very kind and nice, also flexible. Check in was really easy as well as check out. Very beautiful neighborhood and view. The place was spectacular and secluded. He left us a lot of amenities which was a big plus. I would definitely stay here again and recommend anyone to satay here.

Heikki was incredibly responsive- from the moment I reserved his apartment to the moment we arrived in Malibu! He had every single amenity you could think of- and then some. The views from the balcony were amazing and we sat outside at night to hear the ocean and the local coyotes in the distance. Amazing location and would highly recommend Heikki's place to anyone! Thanks for a great experience! P.S. Bonus points for his dry sense of humor! The best!

I booked Heikki's place for my parent's 25th anniversary. They had an awesome stay! It was really easy to communicate with the host and my parents said the place was really easy to find. Everything they needed was there and they enjoyed their privacy. The place looks exactly like the pictures and overall I very highly recommend it!!

Heikki's place is better than the pictures could ever show and he's a better host than I could ever say. He greeted us when we arrived (even though it was much later than we originally told him) and he could not have been more welcoming. And I encourage you to read his guidebook provided both at the residence and in email form. It's a hilariously honest guide to Malibu and he's clearly put time and effort into it over the years. And you'll want to learn more about the food/drinks you'll find when you arrive. It's an honor system setup and it's pretty wonderful. It certainly made our trip easier and saved us a trip to the grocery store late at night! You'll love this place. It's amazing. And so is Heikki.

Heikki is very laid back and a wonderful host! We arrived quite late and he had everything ready for us and did not mind our, past midnight, late arrival. We had tons of privacy and enjoyed every bit of our stay in Malibu! The location of this home is about the best in town. Gorgeous views and so easy to get to everything, beaches, restaurants, hiking, etc!!!

Heikki User ProfileHeikki is a superhost.

I am interested in making my apartment a good experience for you -all the while I stay out of your way. You are here to enjoy your stay -not to deal with me. I don't like hotels. So I stocked the apartment with stuff I would like to have -fast internet, printer, TV with a gazillion of channels (even if why on earth would you want to watch TV here?), all the kitchen appliances I can think of, grill on deck, etc. Blah blah. Within reason you should find pretty everything you can think of for you here. If you don't, it can probably be arranged.

I have been writing a guide "what's interesting for me in Malibu". It's now 30 pages long and it's yours to keep. So far my guests seem to like it.

You'll find more on me on that famous "book with faces" if you search for "heikki malibu" -most likely I am the only one you find.
