Well, it's my fourth time staying at The Cottage so I think that speaks for itself. I'm literally running out of superlatives to describe my trips to this magical place. It now feels like a home away from home and Toni does her best to make sure that that's always the case. Sunshine, surf, dolphins, the beach, etc. Who could ask for anything more? So, in the words of a former California governor and movie star, "I'll be back! Hasta la vista, Malibu! :)

Truly amazing! Words cannot describe this heaven on earth. Since our first visit in 2015, we come here every summer and look forward to another visit the minute we come back home. Toni is the most wonderful hostess. The cottage has everything you need, and the entire place is impeccable. From the beautiful beaches with dolphins to relaxing on the sun deck with our morning coffee, it's a magical place you must experience. It's the highlight of our summer every year!

The Enchanted Cottage/ studio is wonderful and exactly as described. The expansive sea views and romantic garden provide an excellent base for a holiday. The beach and Sunset restaurant is a stones throw away from the cottage. What makes this place extra special is Antoinette. Antoinette is a warm gracious kind and welcoming host. My daughter loved playing in the fairytale garden, with Pinkie the dog and walking down the steps to the beach for a daily swim. At night time we were lulled to sleep by the waves. Thanks again to Antoinette and Frank for their kind hospitality.

Oh Dear Elaine, I miss you and your beautiful daughter Eala. You both brought happiness here in many ways we will never forget. Pinky had a wonderful time playing with Eala for a glorious two weeks and I know she misses you both, as we do. We cannot wait to see you both again. Have a good trip back to your beautiful Ireland. Sending you luck of the Irish and big hugs. Antoinette, Frank and Pinky

Antoinette's house is gorgeous! Location, Location, Location and Epic Views...Everything that one would expect when you think of Malibu cliffside living. Honestly I could not have asked for a better place to stay for the week. The Enchanted Sea Cottage is super clean, modern, private and roomy. The beautiful views from the single bed are incredible, or a few steps to your patio to sit and watch the sunset each night, or have your coffee in the morning. The private steps that drop you on Westward Beach and next to Point Dume & and our favorite The Sunset Grill makes this another reason you won't need to get in your car. Antoinette is such a gracious host who was so incredibly helpful and generous with her time. This is a gem in Malibu that I will be returning to next year. Thanks Toni , Frank and Pinky!

Love living in such a beautiful place that keeps me so happy and grateful to have been here for over 26 years. It is great to share it all with others. I am a senior that loves life and meeting new people from all over the world. Cannot live without watching the whales in season and dolphins almost daily and the most beautiful sunsets.
