We stayed for a month with Larissa, John and their puppy dog Coco and loved it. Great hosts. The townhouse is lovely and nestled in quiet cul de sac in the hillside in Calabassas. Calabassas is an upscale suburb on the back side/valley side of Malibu, about a 20 minute drive through the canyons. It is about 40 mins to an hour freeway drive from Hollywood and Beverly Hills depending on (website hidden) we had business in Santa Barbara as well as LA this location worked well for us. We enjoyed the fresh air, rolling green hills, and playing tennis on the shared tennis court and spa , that make up part of this quiet community.Calabassas Commons is a large well- known outside mediteranean style shopping mall that services the area,with plenty of restaurants. We thoroughly recommend and would happily stay with them again.
Larissa is a great host. We had to change our arrival time due to traffic from the airport and she conveniently met us at the door. The room had a nice soft queen size bed. With the jet lag from Switzerland, we needed a peaceful sleep and we certainly got it here. The family works so we were skillfully taken through how to find everything we needed. For us it was great because we had the privacy we needed for our recovery. The room was adequate for us, just a little tight for moving the suitcases around but we had plenty of space in the closet for our clothes. There is a bus system but the Calabasas Commons Shopping center was the last stop which meant one and a half hours on the bus. We immediately called for a rental car and then we had our freedom. Most of our business was next door to the Commons, a 10 minute drive.
If you are invited for a meal be sure to accept. Larissa is an incredible cook. She should start her own restaurant.
The family is very accommodating they give you as much distance as you need.
Having the pool and Jacuzzi a short walk away is a nice plus here.
We very much enjoyed our stay here and would consider staying again.
I had a very good experience after spending 2 nights at Larissa's house. The room is tidy and the bed is big. Larissa is very polite and accommodating. I love the dog (think is a golden retriever) that is very curious about a new person like me. I would like to stay again in the future and recommend to my friends.
Larissa and John are awesome hosts! Their place was really clean, very comfy and convenient, not to mention in a beautiful area that is perfect for walking, hiking and or biking. I really enjoyed getting to know them over a delicious dinner that Larissa made for me, (So Generous of her!) and Larissa's son Enrique was also super nice and helpful. The room was really perfect! The bed is just like my own and it felt like home. The room also has its own fridge that was very helpful for me to store a few food items that I had along with me from my travels around the area. Fantastic experience! Great People! I will definitely will go back again! Thank You Larissa and John!!!! Its people like you that make Airbnb really Fun!!
