Interaction with guests

I'm more than happy to provide help finding local activities. I've spent 20 years living in the area and can point you either to touristy stuff to do or hidden gems. If you like nature, I can help you find anything you want. I'm also happy to let you enjoy the peace and solitude on your own.

Please respect my belongings.

In keeping with the quiet of the canyon, I ask that you keep conversation/music/etc. at a low volume. Please tread softly.

No smoking - as Malibu has fallen victim to fires in her past.

No parties or events - this is a quiet space. Please be respectful of your noise levels and footprint.

Request day-light arrival. Prior arrival arrangement recommended. Check-in is after 4 PM and before 10 PM. Please inquire if needing to check in after 10 PM.

Large exterior lights to be extinguished by 10 PM - to allow us all to enjoy the amazing star display in our dark (non-city) sky.

Please do not leave your car parked in front as it is a blind curve. Temporary loading and unloading only. Park only in designated areas.

Delicate septic system due to the dramatic terrain of Santa Monica Mountains. Details provided upon check in. But, simply put, nothing other than pee, poop and paper goes into the toilet system. Q-tips, face wipes, and sanitary products should go in standard waste basket system. Thank you.

Susan was the perfect host! Very friendly and helped us get around to our place without too much trouble. Her place is gorgeous! It's kind of out of the way to get to, but the views are amazing! I'm definitely glad I booked this place and I wanted to extend my gratitude to Susan for making it such a wonderful trip for us. Definitely recommended!

It's an incredible landscape and peacefull place and as any paradise it's quite an adventure to get there and the park is a bit far from the front door. But I give all recomendations to a peacefull Malibu!

Nice quiet location with a great view! Parking was a little bit further from the property than would have liked. Always available to contact and helped with an issue. We had a great stay and would recommend!

We loved the beautiful location of Susan's lovely home. The view from the patio was wonderful; the setting was very peaceful. We were able to read & relax during the day while our son was at work. We did find the canyon road a little unnerving. When a heat wave came through the area in early July, we were a bit dismayed to be told by one of the hosts that there was no air conditioning. Our son loaned us a box fan, so that helped some. Our only other issue was parking our visiting son's car so he could eat dinner and visit with us. He was actually verbally attacked by one of Susan's neighbors about parking his car on the private road that the homeowners own together. After that incidence we decided it was easier to eat out at restaurants than deal with parking near the house. I enjoyed staying in Malibu; the area is beautiful!!

Fantastic property, views are unbelievable. If you like sport bikes or sportscars the road to and from is mind blowing :-) Susan was a fantastic host and if you are an accomplished equestrian, let her know ahead of time :-)

I am an outdoor, nature enthusiast! Having lived in Malibu for more than 20 years I have deep knowledge of and can recommend beautiful equestrian and mountain bike trails as well as some of the best and/or most challenging hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains.

It would be my pleasure to introduce you to the benefits of nature and what this community has to offer.

I have three gated horses - two Rocky Mountains and one Missouri Fox Trotter, all with excellent credentials work & knowledge of the Santa Monica Mountains. For experienced riders, feel free to contact me if you are interested in working out an add-on riding experienced overlooking the Pacific of exploring the largest urban park in the US ... just out of your back door!

Your first evening welcomes you with a bottle of fine wine from one of Malibu's local wineries. Should you want to tour the wineries and experience an afternoon of wine tasting, they're but minutes away.

A barbecue on a lovely outdoor private patio is yours to use while you are a guest here at the 'Angels of the Oaks'. We are in a California Shenandoah Oak Preserve surrounded by national and state parks. Caution with sparks required.

Should you be interested in being pampered, massage therapists, aestheticians, yoga instructors are only minutes away.

I would be very happy to make the arrangements for you.

For those evenings that you simply want to cozy up and enjoy the movies or a premium series, Netflix is available for you to enjoy.

I look forward to welcoming you to what guests have said is a magical, energizing, and beautiful place to call home for as many days as you choose to stay.
