Two couples can also enjoy this combo option, since you’ll have your on unique large space, but be close to each other on the same property. Malibu Music & Yoga Guest House is located in between Malibu's world famous beaches and celebs newest favorite town of Calabasas. There is lots of space for your family. The upstairs consists of 2 small open loft bedrooms- one side with a yummy queen bed with down comforter and the other with 2 twins. Downstairs you'll enjoy a very large living space with couches, Phillip Stark swivel chairs, a futon & a work desk. TVs connected to Amazon Fire with Alexa remote. For entertaining there is also a Harmon & Kardon stereo equipped with Bluetooth, a cd selection of music and inspiration, family games and a real life vintage Centipede arcade game for you to play (Yes it still works)! Kids & adults alike have fun with the voice activated Phillips Hue colorful accent lights! The downstairs areas are separated by Soji screens. One side has a sitting area decorated with some of our favorite artists Gold & Platinum Records or autographed posters and the other side is a dining areas with a retro mini kitchen with the basics (refrigerator & freezer, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker). We have 1 full designer bathroom equipped with various amenities from all over the world (shampoos, conditioners and lotions), and a private patio area with a BBQ with a stove top that leads to the shared pool & jacuzzi! We also just added the Happiness Bus (from the Netflix documentary “expedition happiness”) to our property. So you can easily sleep 4 more people and enjoy the woods experience too- while being on the same property! Our guests also have use of our pool and jacuzzi (which can be heated with a few hours notice & a fee) & will enjoy stunning mountain views as you lounge around. Please know we have 4 awesome dogs... (so we hope you like them). If you have a pet too... let's discuss. There is plenty of onsite free parking. And while we respect the privacy of our guests, some (or all) of our family are often here in the main house as well.More

Interaction with guests
All or some of our family is often here in the main house and we love to help make your vacation special. Whether its just recommendations for where to go or what to do - or arranging private Yoga classes for you on our patio, guided hikes in the mountains, energy healing massages and/or mediations or tours of Venice, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Hollywood etc... we're here to help make this a special vacation for you. Our co-host Brittney can customize an entire spa / retreat week or weekend for you - like we have done for so many around the world.

Our family had a great time, walking in the hills, relaxing in the hot tub, space to eat together and play games in the guests house. Best of all was getting to spend the night in the gorgeous Happiness Bus!

About the neighbourhood
We're centrally located 5 miles in from Malibu (pacific coast highway) to the west & Calabasas to the east. Our sanctuary backs up to 10,000 acres of the Santa Monica Mountain Range parkland. Enjoy mountain views from our natural rock, dark bottom pool and jacuzzi. We're 45 minutes from both LAX and BUR airports, 30-45 minutes from Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, 60 minutes from Santa Barbara & Ojai... Even Palm Springs & Disneyland, San Diego, Big Bear are only a 1-3 hours away. Las Vegas or San Francisco can be yours in 5 hours!
Getting around
We suggest our guests have a car. You’ll have your own parking spot (or 2 or 3 if needed & requested). But know that we’re tucked away in the mountains... so getting around without a car is possible, but very challenging.
