We are offering a room in a nice 3-level home in the unincorporated area of Agoura Hills/Malibu Hills. The room is on the third level and offers privacy from the rest of the house. There is a large TV room on the third floor as well, shared by everyone, with a huge couch and 55" LED Samsung TV. The room itself contains a small dresser, desk and 2 beds- one bed is a Full, the other is a twin. Perfect for a couple with a child. You will have your own private bathroom with tub and shower on the first floor as well as access to a shared bathroom on the third floor. The kitchen is located on the first floor and is newly remodeled with marble counter tops and new appliances. We offer breakfast foods, coffee and various teas for our guests. Shampoos, lotions and soaps are provided, as well as a hair dryer, in your private bathroom.
The house is located in the Santa Monica Mountains, 6 minutes from the 101 freeway and 12 minutes from Pacific Coast Highway and the Malibu beaches. Pepperdine University is only 12 minutes away. Within walking distance are two new wineries called "Sip" and "Cornell" as well as a great restaurant known as "The Old Place." There are also beautiful places to hike near by. Three major state parks are close, one located just down the street. Although there is much to do, the area and neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. We have a large, beautiful deck which is open to all for relaxing and visiting.
Smoking is allowed outside, but not within the house.
We are an accommodating and nice family of three (Mom, daughter-27, son-29) and will gladly talk with you about places and sites to check out. We also have two small dogs named Ihop and Stella, both very friendly.
The house has a pool that you are free to use, however it's not heated other than a warming cover. In the summertime the pool is very refreshing with lounge chairs and floats to relax in. In winter, you'd have to be very brave and very hardy to swim in it!
We hope you stay with us and look forward to meeting you!
Please park in front of the white wooden gate in front of the house. You can text me on arrival and I will come out to greet you. The house is set back from the street.

We assume you will be reasonable in your behavior while here in the house but while here, you are free to come and go whenever and at whatever time you'd like- we do not have a 'curfew'.
Karen met my daughter and I at the gate which was nice since we were both tired. We were made to feel most welcome and comfortable in her nice house. The back yard has a wonderful deck with large trees and birds singing. A pool beckoned, but it was a bit cool to think about swimming! Karen's son Chase is also very nice and we shared lots of good conversation with him also. The house is easy to find and is part of a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood. There are parks all around with hiking trails that we used a couple of times. Cozy beds gave a good nights sleep too!
This is an ideal location if you want to visit the Santa Monica Mountains and the Malibu beaches. It is only about an hour away from LAX. We could have stayed another week because there is so much to see in this part of California. We took Karen up on her suggestions of some places for sight seeing like the Paramount Ranch, where many old westerns were filmed, and Malibu Creek State Park. Pack your bathing suit because there are swimming holes there. Karen was approachable, friendly, and accommodating. We felt very welcome by Karen and Chase and would definitely visit here again.
We had such a wonderful stay at Karen and Chase's - it really was the perfect place to stay! It's in a glorious location, close to the beach and with surrounding restaurants and wineries not too far away. The bed was really comfortable, the house is super clean, there are 5 star facilities available to use and Karen and Chase were such lovely hosts - really friendly, welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was incredible and there were so many special finishing touches that made our stay here really special. We would totally recommend it and would love to go back!
Grazie Karen per l'ospitalità!!..mi sono sentito come a casa, anzi meglio...la casa,curata e arredata con gusto, é molto tranquilla, in mezzo alla natura ma ciononostante vicina alle spiaggie/malls... personalmente ho partecipato a uno stage di una settimana in bici da corsa, e raggiungevo facilmente in bici Westlike Village. Altrimenti per gli spostamenti é consigliata anche da Karen una vettura...tra i vari bonus possi citare il frigo enorme a disposizione, l'uso della cucina, la lavatrice e asciugatrice, la doccia con shampoo e sapone, gli asciugamani...per il resto nelle recensioni é stato già scritto tutto ;-) ..... Thank you Karen!
We had a relaxing and quiet time in Karen and Chases house. They were very friendly and helpfull.
Karen was a delightful host, greeting me at the gate on my arrival. Chase was also friendly and welcoming. The home is very clean, well-cared for and in a quiet, safe neighborhood. It was a pleasure to be near to freeway and city but in a quiet country environment at the same time. My Dr has me on a restricted diet but a nearby restaurant offered me many choices. It was fun to be close to beautiful beaches, walk in the neighborhood, view trees out the room window and listen to many birds. Bathrooms were very clean & comfy. Thank you so much for a comfortable relaxing visit!
Karen and Chase were extremely warm and welcoming. The breakfasts were huge, and they opened up their kitchen for us to use as well. We felt as if we were a part of their family. When friends came over, they introduced us, and included us in the conversation--we felt very much at home. Their house was extremely spacious and the deck was gorgeous. We had an amazing time and will definitely return!
