  • We had a wonderful time at the Malibu Pool House. The view was spectaculer. Chantal was a wonderful host. Very accommodating. She made room for my parents at the last minute and made them feel at home. She is also a wonderful cook. So glad we found her place. I highly recommend staying. Hope to come back! Thank you Chantal

  • The stay at Chantal's place was amazing! She was a very lovely host and the place was really wonderful. It was a real honour to spend the night in the Titanic bed.

  • The house was incredible. Very clean and relaxing! Can't wait to go back!

  • We did not receive directions, check in or check out info so our experience was a bit challenged.

    Views are beautiful and the pool was refreshing. The stargazing was also amazing as its hard to see the sky anywhere else around LA.
    The grill was convenient as well
    We were able to bring our little pup

    The bathroom door was broken
    Bed is stiff (although some may like this)
    And we were glad to have brought our own pillows.

    Overall the stay was nice but a bit more clarity regarding check out and what the cleaning deposit covered would have been appreciated. We were later chastised for not doing the dishes when I had assumed it was covered by our $60 cleaning fee. Needless to say, it was disheartening to receive a negative email by the host immediately upon our rerun home. Especially after spending $700 on a two night stay and never having received information regarding check out. Nor did she mention anything when I called as we were about to leave asking of there was anything I needed to do before I left.

    The final unapologetic email exchange left us feeling pretty terrible about the stay.

    Response from Chantal:

    Holley, We are sorry that you did not feel you had a pleasant experience at Malibu Island. Our listing is very specific about the cleaning NOT being inclusive of your dishes and the instructions on check in and check out were in your reservation from Airbnb. Very easy to see. We did not tell you AGAIN when you were leaving because we assumed you read the contract or the information. You never told us about the broken door or we would have fixed it immediately, as we did for the next tenants who informed us of the problem. A lot of people love the bed's firmness, that is a matter of taste. I am not sure what apology you were expecting but we are very sorry you did not leave feeling wonderful about Malibu Island like everyone else does. However, thank you for staying with us.

  • My fiance and I are extremely happy that we stayed at the pool house. We were looking for a place to relax and escape the city for a few days, and this was perfect. On a clear day, you can see the ocean from the deck, and on a cloudy day, you are above the clouds, which makes for an equally stunning view. The property itself is beautiful, and the pool house is nice, spacious, and clean. It's about a 10-15min drive down the mountain to get to the beach (El Matador, La Piedra, and El Pescador are the closest - they are all smaller and more secluded than Zuma and Point Dume). The other side of the mountain leads down to Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village, which is where you'll find the nearest supermarkets and a good selection of non-beach restaurants. A few days during our stay, the beaches down in Malibu were overcast and windy, but the pool at the house was warm and sunny. We would not hesitate to stay here again!

  • We had a lovely experience while staying at Malibu Island's Pool House. The accommodations are perfect and the property an oasis. Chantal is a pleasant hostess and her generosity ensures that we will stay at her property again.

  • What a lovely place to sit by the pool, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, an abundance of birds welcoming the day and view the beautiful Pacific through the spectacular canyon. The perfect hide-away for two people. What a gift that Chantal will share her pristing piece of paradise <3

  • Chantal's Malibu Island house was an amazing trip and we couldn't have asked for more from Chantal. The location was great, and the property itself was the perfect place to relax. Even when we had a small problem with the shower head Chantal had it fixed practically instantly!

    We wouldn't hesitate to return.
