Mike was readily available if we needed anything or when we had a problem. They had orange juice in the refrigerator on our arrival. Any condiments or cooking utensils we could have wanted, some basic spices, coffee for brewing, and drinking water were provided. The three beds and even the futon were quite comfortable, and the house was clean beyond my expectations. We felt very at home there with our family. We loved the quietness along with the proximity to hiking and the beach. The view of the stars was amazing. The selection of DVDs and board games was adequate, enabling us to spend some enjoyable hours watching movies and teaching our grandson how to beat us in Chinese checkers. It was fun!
Mike and Susan were very friendly and welcoming from the moment we met them. Their home was beautiful, inviting and comfortable.
They welcomed us with a tour of the house and a food basket. They told us how to reach them if we had further questions.
Mike and Susan are very sweet. We had a wonderful time, the house is very comfortable, the area is extremely quiet.
Mike & Susan were wonderful hosts!
Although I never had the pleasure of meeting them in person, as my travels from San Francisco to Malibu took longer then anticipated they wrote a lovely welcome note expressing should we need anything to call them.
The home was just as it shows in the photos, but I personally thought it was even more beautiful in person. Clean, spacious with comfortable bedding.
If you're considering this home you can't go wrong. Whether looking for a spacious and warm home for family to visit or a quite escape from the noise of city life Mike & Susan's home offers that and more.
We traveled down for a family wedding but one of my favorite moments was getting up early in the morning, coffee in hand, before anyone else was up and taking in the fresh mountain air from their (beautifully landscaped) backyard, which overlooks the canyon.
I would stay here again should I be in the area.
Thank you Mike & Susan!
Mike and Sue were both very accommodating. The pictures were 100% accurate and were exactly what we experienced. Before arriving, they made sure to let me know that the house was remote and to make sure to have a full gas tank, as the house is definitely deep in the mountains. They were flexible with our arrival time, since we headed up after work, and were welcoming. Thank you both!
The hosts made us feel very welcome. Mike had a fire ready for us when we arrived and he lit it for us again the next day. They provided water, juice, coffee etc. The location is every bit as stunning as it looks. The house is clean, tidy and comfortable. The only slightly weird thing is that there is no door separating the hosts' part of the house from the part we rented. Although not a big deal, it would have been good to know this going in.
