My wife and I travel extensively abroad and in the US but have never enjoyed a property more than Villa Bella Malibu. We were met by the owners and given a VIP tour so we were familiarized with all the amenities. The owners were available if we needed anything and provided us with maps, menus, and activity brochures. We were able to watch the surfers, kite surfers and paddle boarders from the house and the decks and loggia and hear the waves crashing on the sand. There's a iconic seafood restaurant a block or so from the house overlooking the beach that was a great people watching spot for locals and tourists. The Villa is in the less populated upper end of Malibu without the traffic jams which we loved and the grounds are awesome for relaxing with the fountains, birds , ocean views and sea breezes. What we liked least of all was having to leave! We are definitely returning next year with our best friends. This place is too good not to share!
