Interaction with Guests
If we are available, we love to personally meet and interact with our guests and help them with anything they need.
Our house is located in the suburbs. It is very quiet, peaceful, and clean.
Car is definitely recommended, and we live very close to major freeways. (About a quarter mile).
There is public transit such as bus and a train nearby but is not used often.
Other Things to Note
Besides English, Carma speaks fluent Spanish and Catalan and a little bit of French.
We expect respect for the home and neighbors and respecting the quiet hours of the night. This is a non-smoking household and pets unfortunately are not allowed. Sorry!
My second stay was as great as the first! Ralph and Carma are so considerate - they even had the AC turned on a few hours before my I arrival cuz it was a super hot day. Once again, my stay was comfy, relaxing, clean and easy! I can't wait to visit again next time ;)
Carma and Ralph were wonderful hosts. They anticipated any need and were generous with their time and information about the area. The guest house was was located in a beautifully landscaped yard next to the pool. It was tidy and quite comfortable. I also enjoyed being greeted by their wonderfully sweet dog, Bailey. I couldn't have asked for a better first airbnb experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Carma’s charming and comfortable guest house. It’s very easy to find and located in a quiet neighborhood. Lots of restaurants and shopping are nearby. The “welcome” snacks and beverages were a nice treat. Carma and her husband are friendly and engaging. And of course the pool is a great on a warm day. Highly recommended!
Carma and her husband Ralph were very sweet people, very welcoming and made my husband and I feel very comfortable staying at the guest house....It was our very first experience and this guest exceeded my expectations. Thank you for a great Experience Carma and Ralph hope to see you guys in the near future!
We had an absolutely lovely experience staying in Carma and Ralph's pool house. The accommodation itself was cute, clean and comfortable. The view of the pool and their immaculate backyard was soothing and tranquil. When we arrived, we were tested by fresh fruit and nuts, cold beverages in the mini fridge (including a couple of local micro beers for us to try), and fresh towels and shower toiletries. There also was sunscreen there, which we were grateful for, given the heat that time of year.
Not only were the accommodations top notch, but Carma and Ralph really made the effort to make us feel welcome and get to know us. They hosted us for breakfast twice, poolside on one of the mornings, which was an absolute delight. We enjoyed getting to meet their grown up daughter and dog, Bailey.
We cannot recommend Carma and Ralph's pool house highly enough. It is in a quiet area, but not too far removed from the Malibu beaches and Los Angeles and its attractions. You won't regret staying here :)
Everything was perfect. Carma was frequently in touch making sure we had everything we needed. She even left out some hiking recommendations and fresh fruit. The pool was amazing and we wouldn't hesitate to book again.
My stay at Carma & Ralph's guest home was perfect - far exceeded my expectations. 5 STARS +++!
They've thought of everything - including considerate snacks, a plate of fresh fruit, a few drinks in the fridge, tea & coffee, a stocked & 100% functional little kitchen with EVERYTHING you might need (pots/pans, dinnerware, utensils, or paper/plastic versions if you prefer, cleaning supplies if you wanna wash up your dishes, extra towels, etc...). The bed was very comfortable. There was ample storage (hanging room in the closet, a dresser, even storage space in the bathroom). The whole place was spotlessly clean. Even their dog is a sweetheart (friendly but not at all in the way).
On top of this, they're both really nice people & easy to chat with. And their home & yard is beautiful. The neighborhood is great too - I enjoyed nice walks in the evening.
I cannot recommend Carma & Ralph's place highly enough. Thank you for a fabulous stay! I hope I can stay with you again sometime soon...
About the Host, Carma
My husband Ralph and I live in Thousand Oaks, California conveniently located in between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. Since we are "empy-nesters and have a love for traveling and meeting new people, we have decided to open our guest house to travelers around the world.
Besides traveling, we love hiking with our friendly dog Bailey in the nearby walking trails, going to the beach, and socializing with our friends.
Hola! Mi marido Ralph y yo vivimos en el sur de California entre Santa Barbara y Los Angeles. Ya que nuestra hija no vive con nosotros, y nos encanta viajar y conocer gente nueva, hemos decidido abrir nuestra casita de invitados a quien pueda estar interesado.
Ademas de viajar, nos gusta caminar por los senderos cerca de nuestra casa con nuestra perra Bailey. Tambien nos gusta ir a la playa y desfrutar con amigos!
