My wife and I stayed at the Walls of Glass to celebrate her 50th birthday! We had a great time! The view is incredible. The amenities are unsurpassed. You will not regret staying here for your next vacation! Thanks again for renting to us!

Owner's Response: David, timing-wise your selection of Malibu and "Walls of Glass" as your wife's birthday celebration destination was perfect. I just can't imagine a better birthday gift than exchanging the Midwest snow for the unseasonably warm and sunny weather that occurred during your vacation, Don

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family absolutely loved our time at 'Walls of Glass'! We loved the view and listening to the waves as we went to sleep. The beach house had everything we needed...comfy beds, comfy living room furniture, outdoor space, wi-fi, laundry. The location was great to travel around Malibu, into Santa Monica or Beverly Hills. Honestly, we were so pleased and hope to stay again! Thank you Don!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lisa, I'm beginning to hear more and more from guest responses about the location providing good access to adjacent areas vacationers like to visit. Thanks for mentioning it. I never really thought about that aspect of a vacation rental. It makes perfect sense. I just never thought of it. Don

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5
My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed at Walls of Glass from March 17 to March 22 and it was great! The weather was fabulous and the proximity to the ocean gave us great views of dolphins, whales and sea lions and yes, we were visited by Fred daily. We did the whole Hollywood tourist thing as well as visit Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Pepperdine University, Getty Villa, and explore Malibu. We were pleasantly surprised at the close proximity of things as well as the ease of getting around. Maybe we just got lucky, but the traffic was not as bad as anticipated. The house offered all of the expected amenities plus bottled water, an iron, hair dryer and of course, that million dollar view. Be warned, though, the surf comes right up to the house at high tide and if you are trying to sleep you may need ear plugs. The only negative is that the house is somewhat shabby, but possibly in transition. One bathroom is thoroughly redone, the other is not. The kitchen has all the amenities you would hope for except no counter space and the cabinetry is old and sad looking. The floor was odd in that it appeared to have been patched. None of this in any way detracted from our time there, but I felt it should be mentioned because it surprised us. It was a great vacation for these three Texas girls and we all agreed we wouldn't have changed a thing! Thanks, Don, for all your efforts to make our stay comfortable. Also, the information you provided about the area was invaluable.

A+++++

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Don for creating an awesome, beautiful, tranquil beach house for me and my 2 Sisters to come and enjoy for thier Birthdays. You were always available or quick to answer my calls for questions. Your place was even better than expected, with its panoramic views from the living area and master bedroom, to the great TV 80 in. viewing experience, more like a HD theater, only better with the comfy leather electric recliners in the couch and the recliner, NICE touch. The kitchen was also equipped with everything we needed. At first I was a little worried about the traffic noise from the busy highway, however the ocean waves right off the deck took over and I heard no traffic noise at all. My Sisters and I have stayed in many beach front vacation rentals from Ore. to Mex. and we all agreed, this one was the best by far. I want to stay here again sometime and would reccomend to everyone as A+!

Owner's Response: Thanks Connie for a sterling review. To your credit you're the first to mention the 80" HDTV and the motorized Lazy Boy recliners. I'm glad you enjoyed them. I hope you and your sisters return soon. Don

Owner's Response: Thanks John. My attention to detail is because I am "new things and places challenged." When I should turn right, I turn left. When I should have turned left, I turned right. Ad nauseum. So, I am keenly aware of what it takes to enable a vacationer to "hit the ground running." I'm delighted that you noticed. Don

Owner's Response: Thank you Barry and Mimi for mentioning you are 4 time "repeat offenders" (5th vacation, 4th time back). As a vacation rental owner it is my belief that the most credible positive endorsement possible is having previous vacationers return. Don
