My wife and I and our 2 year old daughter had to fly to California for a family wedding. We had to deal with a 5 hour flight (the first for our daughter), plus all the hoopla of a SoCal formal wedding as all 3 of us were in the party. A hotel was arranged for guests, but it wasn't... More

Great place with a gorgeous view! Clean rooms, very friendly and helpful host, delicious breakfast, one of the best surf spots in the country if not the world is 10 mins down the hill. The ride itself was a beautiful adventure! Will definitely come back.

Michael, the Owner, is an amazing person ... It is an honor and privilege to meet such an awesome guy and great business man. Me and my bf are still in complete awe. Wow is all I can say… All our expectations were surpassed and I cannot wait to come back at Bella Vista again. We stayed at the Champagne... More

I was working on a film shoot and had to work in Malibu the next day. Not wanting to drive back to Corona and then all the way to Malibu the next day, I found The Bella Vista. I called Michael, the owner, who was so low key and nice that I booked without seeing the place. I arrived after... More

We recently spent a rainy weekend in sunny CA trying to recover the the east coast winter. We stayed at the Bella Vista and enjoyed the stay . It is convenient to the beaches, saw some great surfing weather, the Getty villa, the Getty museum, Santa Monica, Ventura, LAX etc. The B&B has a great view, which we were able... More

This is what B&B is all about - you have an own room and an own bath and a breakfast often in someones home. IF you are lokking for a hotel - get a hotel. IF you are lokking for a B&B - go here. Mike welcomed us to his home up in the mountains above Malibu. A very social... More

It's quiet, it's peaceful. Away from the L. A. craziness, but close enough that places are accessable. TripAdvisor lists it as a hotel - it's not. It's a traditional B&B in a family home. Michael is a wonderful host. I always go for the full breakfast because I like watching him cook for me - with my preferences. TripAdvisor lists... More

Since this was just a 2nd B&B experience I am not sure what (if anything) is considered 'usual'. The Malibu Bella Vista is a home in the Malibu Hills (Calabasas) with most of the living space on a single/split level because it is on the side of a hill. Michael was a gracious and accommodating host and was very informative.... More

I booked to stay at this so-called 'B&B', on recommendation from the 'Eyewitness Travel' book for LA. I was a lone female traveller, so obviously safety was paramount, and here, I felt far from safe. As another reviewer pointed out, it is not a B&B, but somebody's home. Alarm bells had started to ring when neither the hotel where I... More

I believe this young woman had a last minute booking and probably didn't have a copy of my detailed directions to the Bella Vista. Without the directions it can be a challenge finding us especially at night. Some GPS units even go brain dead because we are located in the mountains. When she arrived she appeared to be uncomfortable with... More

Our GPS would not get us the address for the Malibu Bella Vista because it is in Calabassas. The listing also bills this as a vineyard location. Three sickly vines does not a vineyard make. The drive way is extremely steep for timid drivers. He offered to turn our car around, but I found I was a more compettent driver.... More

There appears to be some confusion as to where I live. The Malibu Bella Vista is located in Malibu Canyon and more specifically, Monte Nido (Mountain Nest). This is an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County. Since we have no post office in Monte Nido or mailing address is to Calabasas. With respect to our vineyard .... The lower vineyard... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bella Vista, a relaxing California bed and breakfast, is located in Malibu Canyon, just 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean and just up the coast from Los Angeles. We are nestled on the side of the Santa Monica Mountains with gorgeous views, thus the name Bella Vista. The B&B rooms are part of our beautiful ranch-style home surrounded by our vineyard. The Champagne Suite has a king size bed, wood burning fireplace, air conditioning, cable TV/VCR/DVD, phone, wireless high-speed internet access and an adjoining private bath. Children are always welcome and some pets. We have a fun loving yellow lab, Sunny, that always enjoys company! ... more   less
