About this listing
Charm and Peace in the Malibu Hills! Older home, wonderful place to rest your head after a busy day in the surrounding areas of
Los Angeles and Malibu. Explore vineyards, beaches and our very nearby state parks (3!)
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.

Extremely warm & Hospitable! Puts out a heck of a spread for breakfast & snacks as well. Queen size bed very comfy & linens were top hotel quality
Cannot say enough nice things about our experience and hosts. The property is incredible, nestled in a beautiful, private area of the Santa Monica Mountains. We explored numerous state parks and beaches, all within a short driving distance, as well as cruised up and down the PHC in and out of Santa Monica.
Karen (& Chase!) were incredible hosts. Karen went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed during our trip, and we were so grateful for her.
The house & location are gorgeous and affordable, and the host even nicer! If you're lucky enough to see a free date, I would jump on the opportunity to stay here.
Karen lives in a beautiful home in the Malibu hills. She quickly made us feel welcome by giving a tour of her house, telling us about the area, and giving us recommendations on places to eat and beaches to visit. We stayed in her very private third floor with a king size bed, access to our own bathroom and TV area. Karen made us delux breakfasts every morning that kept us full all day. She was so gracious and kind and we can't thank her enough for our experience. I would absolutely recommend this airbnb.
Karen is an incredible host. We were greeted with so much kindness and she provided us with everything we could have possibly needed. It truly felt as if a family member was opening their home to us, we felt so comfortable and spoiled. The house is beautiful, the patio is so enjoyable and the room was just what we needed. The two of us could not be happier with our experience and with meeting Karen, we felt taken care of and she made sure we had everything we needed. I truly hope we get to stay here again in the future.
Notre séjour dans la région de Los Angeles n'aurait pas été le même sans l'accueil et les conseils de Karen. La situation géographique de leur résidence nous a permis de diversifier nos déplacements et nos visites. De superbes plages à mois d'une demie-heure, Hollywood à moins d'une heure avec du trafic et Santa Barbara (notre coup de coeur) à lprès d'un heure de route.
L'intention de Karen est que l'on se sente comme chez nous et elle très bien réussi :). Ses déjeuners sont savoureux et diversifiés. La maison est confortable et propre. Notre endroit préféré était sur le patio où l'on retrouve des divans confortables.
Karen nous a prodigué de judicieux conseils.
Merci beaucoup pour votre accueil.
Au plaisir de se revoir à Québec
Our stay in the Los Angeles area has not been the same without the welcome and Karen tips. The geographical location of their residence has allowed us to diversify our movements and our visits. Beautiful beaches months of half-time Hollywood in less than an hour with traffic and Santa Barbara (our favorite) to lprès an hour away.
The intention of Karen is that one feels like home and very successful :). Her breakfasts are delicious and diverse. The house is comfortable and clean. Our favorite place was on the patio where we find comfortable sofas.
Karen has provided us with sound advice.
Thank you very much for your hospitality.
Hope to meet again in Quebec City
Karen was a wonderful hostess! Her home was spacious yet had the cozy feel of a cottage nestled in nature. The canopy of trees above the backyard deck and pool was our absolute favorite place to relax in the mornings. The pool itself was the hot ticket item for our child ! And the generous breakfast spread gave us a warm welcome and much needed fuel for our friends' wedding festivities. She provides soft towels and wonderfully, supportive beds. Even Grant, who is 6'1", couldn't be pried away from the Double upstairs. A great house set in a gorgeous area, we woke up to the array of birds flying through the canyons. And of course, my personal favorite~ 2 dogs who made me truly feel at home.
Karen & Chase house is very confortable, a real quiet and big nest in a magic neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay so much. The breakfasts were incredible: Karen is a very good cook and prepared different plates for us every morning. We really had great moments with our hosts and would come back again without any hesitation. We warmly recommend these hosts and hope to stay in touch with them. Thank you so much for the so great airbnb experience !
