... antique choir seats to imported ceilings and other such art and extravagance!...
After discussing how we would've personally decorated the place we decided to head onwards. Our next stop was Cachuma Lake, 20 miles outside of Santa Barbara this was a strategic choice of campsite so we could be in close driving distance for a certain English pub in Santa Barbara and the game the next day.
The fact that it was a beautiful ...
... lucky we did as it really got heavy. So after washing we had a rest and had an early dinner at Kirsty's Wood Oven& Wine Bar which was joined to the hotel, very fancy ( the Rib Eye steak was $50!) but we had a soup to share and shrimp penne arribiata both really great, so with wine & tip was $155 - just a shame the wonderful view was obscured by the bad weather. There was loads of pasta left over so Peter took it a away & said he'd eat it tomorrow, not sure ...
... seaside town called Lorne and I was served the most delicious steak sandwich that goes down as one of my best of all time. Even to the point where I felt I had to thank the chef for his efforts. Tara didn't think her mozzarella and tomato pesto sandwich was too bad either. That afternoon we enjoyed beautiful views of the ocean, beaches, windy roads, look out points as well as a few highlights such as rock formations; London Bridge (falling down) and 12 Apostles ( minus a few ...
... and her meal) flies down and lands right on the plate so it could happily fill it's belly for the moment. I laughed at the sight and although I'm sure other people found it disgusting, I found it hilarious.
As I get back to my car, I make a follow-up call to Salt in Santa Barbara. You see, last night, I spied an event during my researching that piqued my interest. I had called earlier in the day inquiring as to whether there is space, however did not receive ...
... down with all the boogie boards and chairs and towels. Absolutely stunning day once again and we stayed at the beach until 4pm. Lots of sun and swimming. Very relaxing day. When we got back Mackie and I hoped in his 'Paddling Pool' and Courtney went to work packing. Then she and Kim went for a Blow-out. Dinner was yoghurt marinated lamb kebabs and salads. John and Courtney were there as well as Dan from next door. Very pleasant meal and a fine way ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Malibu Inn on the Beach
You Mean You Want to Stay at Our Hotel?
We heard such good things about this hotel, but when we tried to book several rooms for a family reunion in September the front desk seemed shocked they we would want to stay there. They were downright rude, said they wouldn't take reservations in advance, that their prices would be changing soon and that we should call back another time and seemed shocked that we would even ask. Needless to say we will be staying somewhere else. Imagine, trying to book a hotel room in advance in Malibu. The nerve of us.
We have stayed at Casa Malibu a number of times over the years beginning 25 yrs. ago. Hope to get back there soon. It is a quiet, restful place to contemplate whatever you wish and we always enjoyed our own little kitchen unit on the 2nd floor. Didn't have to get dressed to have a snack or a meal. Great place.
Wonderful place to stay
Loved Casa Malibu-great little discovery on the water. Small capacity makes for more relaxation, more peaceful stay. Only complaint would be the parking situation. Otherwise, would recommend to anyone travelling through this delightful coastal community.
Great Mini Getaway
We had a delightful time at Casa Malibu Inn on the Beach. We live at the beach already and know the cost at our own hotels at Pismo Beach.
Casa Malibu Inn was very reasonable and clean. I had read already previous reviews and knew what to expect. Bring a small car for parking and the rooms will be shabby chic. I will add to bring a hairdryer and go to the wonderful resturants in Malibu recommended by the Inn owners.
Thank you TripAdvisor and all those who take the time to do reviews.
The Best of Malibu
This is the best place weve found so far in Malibu. Our room was literally on the water, incuded fireplace and newly renovated bathroom with very high quality fixtures. I can't say anything negative about it, very nice linens, great staff and the ocean fifty feet off the back deck!
We stayed two nights here on our honeymoon travelling down the California Coast. The setting is beautiful, and Malibu seems so peaceful and of a small town that it appears light years away from LA.
What a getaway
We stay here every opportunity we have to visit Southern California.
You just can't beat the ambiance. It's a throwback to a kinder, gentler time. Well maintained. Nice touchs. Each room has it's own nuances. Ask the owners and each room has a story or it's own claim to fame. Owners act like neighbors instead of landlords. Great kind people. The only reason I didn't give this place an excellent is because it doesn't have some of the amenities modern hotels do. Keys have room numbers on them instead of card key locks, No high speed internet access. If that's what your looking for go elsewhere and leave the rooms to folks who want to relax and enjoy life as it should be.
Relive the early 60's!!
What a joy this place is! The scent of jasmine wafts through the window to the sound of the Pacific surf. Forget the highway behind it, pretend Lana Turner's upstairs and relax in the innocence of our unslick yesteryears, not necessarily how it was, but how we remember. This hotel made our southern California experience live.
We had a great experience at Casa Malibu. It's easy to find on Pacific Coast Highway. The staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. The atmosphere is homey and relaxing. The view is simply stunning. Everyone at Casa Malibu goes out of their way to make sure the customer has a memorable visit. We stayed one night in a beach front room with our sliding glass door open onto our private deck. The roar of the surf and the cool sea air made for very peaceful sleeping conditions. The next night we moved to a "garden view" room on the second floor. We still had a nice view of the beach and heard the crashing waves.The only minor inconvenience was really tight parking. The parking is free and there's enough if everyone pays attention to how they park.
Comfortable, on beach, nice folks
Right on the beach in Malibu and more reasonable than most for that luxury. Stayed in a suite, a real mish-mash of styles, but comfortable and spacious. Everything clean but the drapes, which were bad. Nice peekaboo view, but also street noise. Promising renovations in progress.
