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.
We arrived late in the evening but had a welcome text from Heikki and a bowl of fruit and a bottle of Californian Champagne was waiting for us in the fridge.
The apartment was exactly as advertised and the neighbourhood was very peaceful, high up on a hill overlooking Malibu and the ocean. It was clean and bright with plenty of space for the two of us. Wifi worked well. The shower was wonderful. Plenty of hot water and different nozzles so that you could set it for water to come at you from all directions.
The reservation was canceled 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Heikki's home is stunning, quaint, and exactly as pictured. He makes a fabulous attempt to provide little extras that he thinks his guests might appreciate. The shower is a treat, once figured out! :)
Our family of 4 just finished staying here for a wedding in Malibu and it was perfect. The views are unreal. The space is perfectly sized - small kitchen, beautiful bath and shower, cable and wifi, and even a no-profit minibar! Heikki is very hospitable and available for any questions. We are now anxious to get back and enjoy the beach more. Did I mention the views....
Heikki thought of everything we could possibly need for our Malibu 30th Anniversary Celebration. Our favorite feature was the million dollar view from the beautiful deck. The apartment was fresh and comfy with touches of luxury throughout. The kitchen and grill were perfect for making brunch & dinner to enjoy on the deck. After stargazing into the evening, we were able to continue enjoying the sea breeze & view from the bed until the sun gently woke us each morning! If you are looking for a place to make memories in Malibu...you've found it!
Heikki was simply an amazing host, and the apartment was beautiful. If you're thinking about staying here, DO IT. Thanks for a wonderful getaway, can't wait to come back!
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.
