This is a lovely home, in a lovely location, with kind and accommodating owners. The backyard is designed for outdoor enjoyment with a huge, new barbeque, a wonderful bar area and complete kitchen. The owners were wonderful about accommodating our requests to heat the pool with short notice. What a pleasant stay we had at this home!This rental is just above the beach in Pacific Palisades.. So the location is perfect for sitting on the beach, going to the Santa Monica,heading up the coast to see the beautiful coastline and Malibu.
The backyard of this home is beautifully landscaped, with plenty of chaise lounges for sun bathing. There is a huge outdoor table with a propane heater and a fully BBQ/ bar area. The BBQ is huge and new.
Wifi works well throughout the house and outdoor areas. There are 3 nice size bedrooms each with its own bathroom (one is across the hall). The beds were comfortable, the sofa bed was adequate.
One thing that I really appreciated was how well the kitchen was equipped, plenty of plates, glasses, utensils. I love that they allow an accumulation of other guest spices, oils etc. so there is really very little, if anything that you need to add. Also, I appreciate that there were trash bags, dishwashing soaps, etc.
This home is spacious, with two indoor living rooms in addition to the outdoor living area. Hillary and her daughter Tracy were very easy to deal with and very responsive. Tracy was always available by text and Hillary lives on the property, but is in no way intrusive, only helpful.
The home is very comfortable, and I love how it has large glass windows overlooking the landscaping so that you feel that you are outdoors.
The property does have a few quirks, but based on the extensive research that I did, it is very good value for your money. The home is very comfortable and "liveable". The outside area is terrific, and the hosts are kind, gracious and accommodating.

What a pleasant stay we had at this home! We were traveling with 3 pre-teens , 2 parents and a grandparent and we all really enjoyed our stay. This rental is just above the beach in Pacific Palisades.. So the location is perfect for sitting on the beach, going to the Santa Monica Pier or heading up the coast to see the beautiful coastline. We traveled all over LA during this visit and we found this location to be a convenient base for exploring everywhere.
The backyard of this home is a beautiful tropical oasis with a lovely pool, large outdoor dining area and BBQ/ bar area. There are plenty of lounge chairs around the pool. What a relaxing way to spend the day after a busy day of sightseeing among all the crowds of LA!!
Wifi works great throughout the house and outdoor areas. There are 3 nice size bedrooms all with large TVs with premium stations. The beds were quite comfortable.
The kitchen is well equipped with a kitchen bar area and large dining table .
This home is spacious and has two indoor living rooms in addition to the outdoor living area.
Mrs. Palmer and her daughter Tracy were very nice people to deal with and our rental went perfectly. Tracy was always available by text and Mrs. Palmer is close by. When we return to Los Angeles we will definitely stay at their home again and I highly recommend it to other travelers to the area.

We loved this place. We weren't sure at first by the pictures and really had no idea where Pacific Palsades was as we wanted to be in Malibu but this location was PERFECT. Easily accessible to basically everything we wanted to do. The owners were very nice and accommodating. A bathroom for each room, which is great for a bunch of girls.
Didn't use the pool much, but did have it heated one day and it was lovely.
We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.
I had such a lovely, relaxing stay at Hillary & Trace's vacation rental! My room was spotless, cheery and quiet! And it was so nice to sunbathe by the pool and also be right up the hill from the ocean! I actually was able to walk to the historic Yogananda Lake shrine, and I cannot remark more strongly how special it is....these are 5 star lodgings with the personalized touch of gracious generosity! A real diamond for those of you wanting to spend wisely but get your monies worth! Thank you Hilary & trace again for your genuine hospitality!
