Recent Malibu vacation rental reviews

What you see is what you get. Beautiful stay! Would book this spot again. Listing mentions “rental is on top floor”. That confused us a bit so I’m here to say, living quarters and one room on top floor then master on bottom floor. No other house situation below you. You are not sharing space with anyone else.

The location of the home was perfect. Walking distance to "DUKE'S Restaurant, which has great food. And the view was absolutely magnificent!!!

Great location, very clean. Bungalow had everything we needed for a great stay. A few issues: you can hear the highway (and neighbors) from the master bedroom. Almost drowned out by the waves, but not quite. Also, the locks were finicky - my daughter accidently locked herself out of her room (the door could be locked and then closed from the outside). The electronic front door lock didn't always engage - but there was also a lock on the door to the street so we used that. Overall, a great place to stay and we would come back.

Southern California day trips

In this part of California you will have no trouble finding fun things to do! Malibu is located right on the Pacific Coast Highway, which you can follow north about an hour to trendy Santa Barbara, or south a few hours all the way to San Diego. Malibu is also directly to the west of diverse downtown Los Angeles and within an easy drive of other coastal communities near Los Angeles such as Venice Beach and Newport Beach.

Things to do in Malibu

The main draw in Malibu is definitely the prime stretch of coastline. Go ahead and spend a couple days walking along different beaches, sunbathing, or playing in the surf. In fact, the Surfrider Beach is a world-famous surfing spot and draws thrill seekers from all over. You could walk along the Malibu Pier, visit nearby wineries, go golfing, peruse some shops, and grab a bite to eat from one of the many beachfront restaurants. If you like museums, check out the Getty Villa, where you can spend all day looking at exhibits about classic civilizations and walking around the gardens. At the end of the day, return to the beach and snag a front-row seat to watch the spectacular sunset over the horizon before returning to one of our Malibu vacation rentals to rest up for another day of adventures.

Attractions near Malibu

If you like to spend time outdoors, make sure you bring your hiking boots and visit the Backbone Trail, which has many paths that lead up into the Santa Monica Preserve and offer breathtaking views of the surroundings. Just to the north of town is the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, which encompasses almost 250 square miles of diverse and gorgeous land. There you will find everything from beaches to rocky trails perfect for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The area also has cultural exhibits, as well as plenty of viewpoints offering scenic vistas of cities, mountains, the ocean, and the valley. If you like the idea of pristine beaches with beauty in every direction, check out our Malibu vacation rentals and take a trip to experience the allure of this gorgeous city for yourself.
