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 here during your stay.
Very quiet neighborhood, also a dark neighborhood because there are essentially no street lights. You can see the starts and Milky Way from here -weather permitting.
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.
No parties, all guests have to be cleared with owner (septic system sewer, neighborhood is very noise sensitive).
Heating -an electric (website hidden) -not available.
What a lovely studio apartment. It was perfect in every way. The space was clean and bright, the fridge well stocked, the views incredible and the bed most comfortable. This studio is centrally located to enjoy both beautiful beaches and some amazing hikes and even shopping. My only wish: A longer stay to have enjoyed some of Heikki's restaurant recommendations and to have been a bit more social.
Realy a great place to stay. Everything was exactly as described. All worked well and was good equiped and clean.
Nice view over The Pacific!
Lot of privacy. Heikki was a good and reachable host. He made a booklet with very useful tips to get around. I loved his authentic humor and commentary on local things.
If you want a relaxed place to stay in The Malibu erea, this should be your choice.
Heikki's home was wonderful. The house felt like a everyday we were in paradise. Spectacular views, nice shower and bathroom. We could not have asked for anything better. The kitchen was fully equipped with all the basic amenities and you are 10 minutes from beautiful Zuma beach.
Heikki was very responsive with any questions we had and we would love to rent this place again.
Heikki was a great host- greeted us with a smile, handed us a fantastic homemade guidebook/packet and wished us well. He was available for any questions, but we didn't really have any. We used the guidebook to get to a great, hidden walk on the beach at sunset and the next morning we used it to get to a fantastic hike on the Zuma Ridge Trail. All in all, it was an excellent stay and I'd highly recommend it.
Heikki's apartment was exactly what I had been dreaming of - and it felt like coming home! Everything, the apartment's interior design, the well equipped kitchen (including a free bottle of Prosecco!) and bathroom, the location as well as the view were just perfect!
Heikki welcomed me as I pulled up on the driveway. He showed me around the apartment and provided useful local information. I was also able to do laundry during my stay. One evening I spontaneously invited Heikki over for a glas of wine on the patio where we had an interesting conversation while enjoying the sunset. My stay really felt like being home!!
The photos of the place do not even get close to reveal its beauty in real terms. Amazing place, absolutely breathtaking view. Heikki was fantastic and really helpful even after we left the place!
Super clean, great deck and cozy atmosphere. The area is quite hidden and very secure and private.
The place is stunning. We have visited Malibu several times but this was our first time staying in the hills, the view was fantastic. We decided to spend the evening in, enjoying wine on the patio and grilling up dinner. Heikki really makes sure the apartment is fully equipped with all amenities and that your stay is as comfortable as possible. His guide to Malibu is very helpful, so take advantage. He is a very responsive and generous host!
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.
