Average size room with queen size comfortable bed, dish network provided lots of options for tv and loved having wifi in our room. Also loved that robes were provided because we forgot ours.

Michael, the owner, is a gracious host who welcomes you into his home and provides you with everything from a delicious breakfast to a wonderful view.

The proprietor & home were nice, the view was beautiful & room comfortable. Unfortunately the hot tub was not working & that was the attraction on the website that most got our attention.

Again a wonderful stay at this B & B... Initially when I was unable to stay in the Burgundy room where I have always been before I was disappointed. That was quickly resolved as I stepped into the suite! An extremely comfortable king size bed, fireplace (though I didn't use it) and a roomy well lit skylight bathroom that I could have almost done a cartwheel in! With the TV and remote in hand I could have stayed in the room and never left! Michael prepared his famous scones and french toast. Don't let the drive up to the house intimidate you. It's well worth the stay and the breath taking view...Thanks Michael and Beth!

A beautiful, isolated, remote mountain setting with comfortable, clean rooms. What is unique about The Malibu Bella Vista is that the owners treat you as part of their family and make you feel you are old friends visiting their wonderful home, including sitting on the high-up deck chatting with them as you admire the mountainous view, interacting with their two lovely dogs, or discussing local things of interest! They have had visitors from all over the world, so if you are non-American and are looking for a personal experience with American people rather than a luxury suite with lots of gadgets, try the Malibu Bella Vista. There happens to be a 5-star restaurant within walking distance, or you can drive down the spectacular Malibu Canyon road to numerous restaurants at the Malibu beaches. The Malibu Bella Vista allows some guests to bring their dog depending on the type of dog.

My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our 6th Anniversary at the Bella Vista. Greta homemade breakfast and views of the mountains. We could see the stars as we relaxed in the hot tub outside. Friendly family and lovely decor.

Pleasing accommodations, beautiful surroundings, and wonderful hosts. Will consider staying there again. It was a nice, close by, retreat.

The champagne room was nice, roomy, comfortable, and quiet; the fireplace was cozy. The front porch has lovely canyon views. The back porch has a hot tub, you walk through the family areas to get to it, but it is private. Nice for stargazing. The dogs are friendly. As has been commented previously the guest rooms are not separated from the family living areas. We had a great 2 nights. Breakfasts were great and Michael makes you feel like a friend.

Guests should know that the guest suites are not at, all separated from the family's quarters. Michael was a nice and generous host.

It was definitely my best lodging experience, ever! The house was lovely, perched atop a hill with a gorgeous view. The host was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The dogs were amusing. :) I didn't feel like I was traveling... I felt like I was visiting family in the area.

Two students who were looking for a nice, pretty place that's not too expensive. It was wonderful! Beautiful mountains & very nice hospitality.
