Michael moved to Malibu Canyon in 1995. The B&B was opened in March of 1996. Since then we have have guests from all over the world from a distance of 12 miles to 12,000 miles. What we enjoy about our location is that we have the solitude of living in the mountains (very peaceful and relaxing) and yet are within minutes of the beach, parks, museums, theaters and amusement parks.
The is a part of our marble entry way. This 2' x 2' section was designed and cut out by Michael as a surprise for Beth on her birthday. In 1997 we were in Florence. Michael was inspired to do the marble work after seeing the Basilica.
Here is what some of our guests have shared with us ........
Richard and Maggie, Ottawa, Canada ..... You far exceeded our expectations: room, breakfast, the views, etc. Perhaps you should consider changing the name to Hyatt Kin!
Greg and Robin, Melbourne, FL ...... Thank you for your hospitality, delightful breakfasts and great conversation. I'll never forget my first "real massage".
Laurie, Chicago ..... A wonderful way to see parts of California. Peaceful, private and pleasant. Terrific hospitality.
Julie, England .... What views! A short stay, but can't wait for my return visit to sample more scones and meet the rest of the family.
Eryn and Luke, US Army Iraq ..... A thousand thanks for your hospitality, warmth, welcome and flexibility! This "Honeymoon" was just what we needed to introduce us to the good ol' US of A all over again.
Annika and Ian, Perth Australia ..... The breakfast's were delicious, the views spectacular and the dogs friendly. I hope the wireless keeps working trouble free for many a year from now.
Carlota, Roxane and Enrico, Paris and Milano ..... We came "unexpected" and felt immediately at home! Thanks for such a relaxing and inspiring stay. We love your house and we are ready to come back anytime.
This carving is found on one of our buffets and will be used in the creation of our first wine bottle label. "Papaleoni" is Michael's family name on the Italian side. In Italian, it means Father of the Lion.
