Joanne's place was great! Very tastefully decorated, nice pool, friendly dogs, great location. Would definitely stay here again!
Amazing, amazing! That was a perfect stay in California. The Family was very very nice, sympathy and the two further members of the family were unbeatable, the dogs Seek and Wirily. Very impressive Garden with enough place to relax. The relationship with the Joanne and Garry was open and caring. It was a pity after one week to leave Calabasas Oasis by the Family.
My stay with Joanne was wonderful. She is so friendly and welcoming. The room is very comfortable and equipped with everything you need. She is laid-back and lets you use the kitchen and other living areas. I felt like I was at home as I was relaxed and comfortable. The house itself is beautiful with a nice outdoor area to.
It's a 4 minute drive to The Commons in Calabasas which has great eateries and boutiques. There are great areas for hikes as well and a short drive to Malibu and to LA.
I loved my stay at Joanne's and can call her my friend.
We spent an extended weekend in the LA area and since we wanted to chill the room we rented from Joanne and Gary was perfect. They were great hosts, extremely kind and considerate.
We had lots of privacy, the family was out most of the time and we had the amazing pool, hot tub and backyard all to ourselves. Our room and bathroom was spotless clean, fresh towels and beach towels supplied. The hosts were really helpful and ready to answer any questions we had. Joanne also had some great suggestions on places to go for dinner or brunch.
The community in which the house is located is well kept, peaceful, with tennis courts and beautiful gardens. It is just a short drive through one of the canyons and you find yourself in Malibu.
Wonderful hosts in an immaculate and beautiful home. Great pool, hot tub and tastefully decorated. Best of all warm and welcoming hosts who helped with everything from birthday restaurant recommendations to giving us beach chairs and sports equipment and directions to the best local beaches. Could not have been better. My son can't wait to go back next year!
With Joanne and Gary I not only found two excellent hosts that really care about your well being but also two new friends. I really could enjoy my stay at their beautiful house with all possible freedom. Joanne and Gary are tow very friendly and helpful persons at anytime. I got a lot of good tips and advice for places to go. Thank you very much !
