We prefer arrivals not earlier than 3:00pm and departures not later than noon.
Smoking of any type is not allowed within this home.
PLEASE NOTE, as nice as our photos display our beach, these are summer photos. During the winter months the high tides actually hit our 13' tall seawall and splash to a height of 30+ feet, washing completely over our deck. At low tide you could access the beach, but winter tides usually erode the sand and the beach surface may be totally cobblestones, very little if any sand surface at that time. Sunbathing during the winter may be uncomfortable at best.
*Not much sand December through April* Beach erosion varies - Fishing License required from deck or beach - Railroad tracks and US 101 Freeway on the roadside of our home - We may or may not be upstairs during your stay but you will have exclusive use of the ground level deck area.
Neighborhood "Rules and Regulations" will be furnished before you commit. Overnight guest limit is six (6) persons, daytime guest limit is maximum sixteen (16) persons.
We do require a $150.00 cleaning fee payable in cash upon arrival.
We are willing to provide a "simple grocery shopping" service prior to your arrival and will give you the receipt to be refunded to us with cash.
It is a 25 mile drive to Santa Barbara and 45 mile drive to Malibu.
