It was very nice place to be. We had a great time. All of the people were friendly and helpful! We will miss the waves and the warm sun! Friendly greetings from the Germans!

Best Family Weekend in a Long Time

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for a beautiful weekend in celebration of our 35th wedding anniversary. We had such a wonderful time. Peaceful, very clean, and stocked with everything we needed. We even brought our little dog and she loved it too.

Perfect for family getaway.

  • 5 of 5
The Dolphin was just perfect for my daughter's family. She and her husband and toddler son had a wonderful time enjoying the beach and the convenient location. Everything you need is in walking distance. My grandson loved the gentle waves and clean beach. The biggest sand box ever! The unit was well tended and the property manager Angel, was attentive to every request. They even had plastic buckets and shovels! Just loved it here. Made wonderful memories and we will be back again next year. Thank you!

Love the location of this rental. We enjoyed our stay there and wish we could have stayed longer. When we first arrived we were greeted by a friendly neighbor and by someone who works for the owner. The Owner seems to be on top of things, wanting to make sure everything is okay and we are enjoying our stay. Which we did We found our stay to be very relaxing and we ended up spending more time there than originally planned because our oldest was not feeling well the last two days of our trip. I do have a few safety concerns that I hope will be addressed sooner than later. As others have mentioned, it is difficult to get into the tub and could pose a danger for older people. Also, the deck railing, overlooking the beach, isn't as secure as it should be, so I would be cautious about leaning on it while enjoying the view of the ocean.

Nice Location in Malibu, but.....

  • 4 of 5
Overall, our experience was nice enough, although some aspects could have made it better. First, being so close to the ocean was wonderful! The place was bright with a cute "beach/sea" motiff & soothing colors. The directions re opening the place was easy to follow.

However, although the maid service was friendly, they arrived right at 11:00AM which was check-out time, but we have never been anywhere where the service arrives at the exact desginated time. We felt rushed. More importantly, although the place was clean enough, there could have been attention to detail. For example, both ceiling fans were caked in dust along with the top of the refrigerator (+ crumbs), and the back of the bathroom door where the paneling design allowed dust to settle. Also, the shutters were hard to open & scraped on the floor. You had to be very careful opening & closing. Plus, an old coffee maker could be replaced. It worked okay, but took a long time to brew. And some cookie sheets/pans and bowls would be nice to have in the kitchen. Plus, steps should be provided in order to get in the jacuzzi tub/shower. Unless you are quite tall, you had to stradle the 2 1/2 ft high edge to get in. An accident waiting to happen, particularly if older. Such are examples of details that could be attended to and make for a more pleasant experience.

Furthermore, we had an unpleasant experience with the owner who was patronizing and disrespectful our last night. We obtained a new credit card #(as fraud was committed 4 months before arrival, after deposit made); therefore, when they went to charge the balance, it was denied. The owner called and left a message on Sat early evening requesting a call back either Sat night OR Sun AM to rectify the issue. No problem,easily rectifiable. We received the message in the middle of preparing dinner and planned to call that same night after we finished dinner, yet dinner was interrupted with the owner arriving at the door with a quite disrespectful and demeaning approach.She did not give us the courtesy of returning the call, but arrived at the property instead treating us as though we were going to skip out or the like with the attitude we had done something wrong. Mindful, we are professionals in our early 50's and are not accustomed to such treatment. This obviously left a poor taste in our mouths as we felt she was rude and disrespectful under the cirsumstances.After that experience, it would be extremely difficult to rent again from this agency.

Owner's Response: Fortunately, during their 3 night stay these guests were able to enjoy the outstanding surroundings of this vacation rental. They did not bring any needs or issues to our attention during their stay.

In fact, after their arrival, we tried to contact them twice by email on consecutive days and also by phone, but they did not respond regarding payment for their stay. Unfortunately, their lack of response necessitated a more proactive effort to resolve the payment matter. We have never had this problem before and hope to never have it again as the entire situation was not in keeping with the relationship we usually have with our guests.

Needless to say, we believe this guest's “review” appears to be without credibility.

Relax and have fun with family!

We could not have had a more extraordinary time on the Malibu shore. This condo was perfect for my two sisters, daughter and me. After a friendly welcome, we settled into a clean, calm and relaxing environment. We walked along the seashore each morning, then read, talked and laughed on the deck. It was within a mile to walk to local restaurants, the Malibu Pier and the Malibu Country Mart. The only time we needed the car was to drive to the grocery store or to a restaurant further up the coast. This was just the getaway destination we had hoped for and we cannot wait to return.

Fantastic location and apartment

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful Malibu location, with friendly and accommodating owner and on-site staff. Apart from a few issues with the water heating, which we were shown how to fix and I am sure will be resolved for any future visitor, it was a wonderful stay close to the pier and a view that couldn't be beaten
