The space

You are always welcomed with treats to make you feel at home! The property is on 4.0 acres, secluded, sitting on a hilltop surrounded by oak trees. We designed and built the guest house (2nd floor) with our visiting family and friends in mind. The tall ceilings, big beautiful windows,and oversized french doors allow lots of natural light in. The floors are solid maple. There is a full kitchen, a walk in closet, a large shower, and balcony so you can enjoy dining al fresco. The furniture inside and outside are beautiful and comfortable.
WE live on the property about 40 feet away from the guest house. We are available if you need assistance.
We typically do our grocery shopping at the Trader Joe's because they have everything we need on a daily basis. It is about 8 miles away, so you need a car!!
We are in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, about 5 miles from Pacific Coast Highway, Zuma Beach, and Westward beach. It is a great outdoorsy and nature-full area. The "Backbone" trail and mountain bike trails are all within walking/riding distance.
There are great restaurants and wine tasting rooms nearby. Calamigos Ranch & Conference Center is within walking distance. Malibu & Vine Tasting has very nice live music and outdoor events, the Cornell Winery Tasting Room and Sip Tasting are all within a 10 minute drive!

Lilly was absolutely wonderful, she made me feel so welcome the moment I arrived and was very accommodating with my check in/check out time. Her place was a lot larger than I expected, with abundant light, sky high ceilings and had everything I needed (and more)! I really enjoyed her place!

This is my third time back, and it's always a complete charm. Lily really did think of everything. This apartment is so cozy and lovely. The grounds of the house are full of beautiful trees, hummingbirds, and peacefulness. This is a great space for either work or relaxation, and the hosts couldn't be nicer. Can't wait to come back again.

We had a wonderful experience in Lilly's place. The apartment is extremely well furnished, and the host provided snacks, a wine bottle, fruit, juices and every detail was taken care of. We found supplies of sunscreen, insect repellent, mouthwash, etc. Lilly, the host, and her family are so nice and welcoming and warm and friendly. I would not hesitate in renting her apartment again. The surroundings are beautiful and easy to reach. We have stayed in many Airbnb houses and apartments, and without doubt, Lilly was the nicest host we have met. I would recommend her place without any reservation.
