The space
The space
Best suited for TWO ADULT GUESTS ONLY
that are looking for a unique experience that combines the rustic charm of a classic train coach with the added touch of a highly creative surrounding atmosphere. All of the ingredients are here to discover, stimulate and inspire the creative spirit that resides in all of us. We have been told by friends, visiting artists and other creatively minded people that spending time on our property seems to open a space in their personal life that invites inspiration.

Guest access
Interaction with guests
One of us will meet you at the property when you arrive to answer questions and introduce you to the amenities of the neighborhood and the surrounding area so that you can make the best use of your time during your stay. Otherwise, you will have a very private Caboose up on the hill with incredible views of the Santa Monica Mountains

Other things to note
There is an onsite metal sculpting and iron working studio on our property that is active from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm each weekday Monday through Friday. For the most part, any metal working sounds will be held to a minimum during the morning hours when we have guests. From 2:00 pm on, there is no work done in the studio and all is quiet. We also ask that unless invited into this studio area, during the above mentioned working hours that this studio and the people in it be left undisturbed.

Other things to note
We have been told that there is a romantic quality to spending the night in our luxury caboose, it is perfect for a couple to share an intimate evening together in a peaceful, private place. The setting and surrounding property lends itself to the creation of some unforgettable photography.
There are wild peacocks and a variety of other wild birds that over the years have found that our property is a "safe haven" to the point that one would think that they are almost domesticated pets. Hummingbirds, Parrots, Snowy egrets, Grey Herron's, Woodpeckers, Bluejays, Crows and Ravens, etc. A large variety of hawks and falcons live and hunt in the area and at night, you may hear the sounds of owl's calling to each other from the treetops.

I am a chef, author, restaurateur and philanthropist, and I arrived in Los Angeles from Northern Ireland in 1975, to begin my career in the culinary industry. My culinary expertise encompasses an international diversity including Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Japanese, French and, of course, Contemporary California and Irish. I have been featured in the L.A. Times, Fine Cooking Magazine, and Bon Appetit Magazine named (Website hidden by Airbnb) of the top six chefs in the United States”. Today, I own two distinctively different restaurants on Main Street in Santa Monica,California: Lula Cocina Mexicana, a bold, bright and colorful cantina famous for its murals painted by artist Eloy Torrez, and Signature Lula Margaritas;and Finn McCool's Irish Pub, boasting a beautiful bar shipped painstakingly over from Ireland through the Panama Canal.In 1995, I built my dream home, Rancho Chiquita, nestled high in the Malibu Mountains. Rancho Chiquita overlooks a spectacular panoramic ocean view and 250 acres of rolling hills, and is host to many Charity Fundraising Events, Weddings , Private Cooking Classes , and Film and Movie Shoots. I am an avid advocate on behalf of the protection and rehabilitation of animals, and I share my home with a multitude of Rescue Dogs.

During your stay
SMOKING: Out of respect for those that do not smoke and are offended by the left over odor there is a "NO SMOKING INSIDE THE CABOOSE" rule. Out of respect for those that enjoy smoking, you may smoke out on the deck or almost anywhere outside if you choose, we ask that our guests that wish to smoke observe that we are in a delicate semi-wilderness environment and that smokers use all reasonable precautions with extinguishing their smokes in a safe and responsible manner, and that they do not leave any Smokers Trash (Butts & Filters) laying about (We supply a 1940's covered ashtray for outside smoking :) )
PETS: It is best if we do not allow guests to bring pets. We have dogs and rabbits on the property, all of whom are friendly, and are used to dealing with the wild peacocks and each other. Bringing other animals especially other dogs into their territory can be disruptive and make for time spent dealing with that instead of relaxing and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere.
