AMAZING STAY!! Definitely will be back!!
I love it here!! This is my second time staying at The Malibu Retreat. My friends and I stayed for a week in the guest house, I couldn’t wait to come back it is truly a special place. I love waking up in the morning and enjoying coffee by the pool while I plan a day of hiking nearby trails, swimming in the pool and soaking up the sun. The views from the property are amazing and the energy here is peaceful and restorative with sounds of wind chimes & palm trees swaying in the breeze. There’s plenty of room here to relax with friends or enjoy some quiet time to yourself. At night I like to unwind in the jacuzzi and enjoy the beautiful sunset view. Michelle is a great host and very accommodating. She had some great recommendations for local hiking trails & restaurants. I had the best sleep ever my bed was so comfy with plenty of cozy pillows and blankets. I will definitely be back!!!

Happiness Bus and guest house.
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!

Wonderful happiness bus AND yoga guest house
Such a nice place. I was able to rent the guest house and the bus. My friends sleeping in the bus had the blast as it's very comfy and there is a heater so you don't get cold at night. The guest house is absolutely wonderful and the beds are super comfy. I like how the decoration is so detailed. it's in the middle of nature and it is really relaxing. The views are stunning and I spent hours just watching at the mountains and the sunset. I would go back again
