HOW LEASE DATES ARE DETERMINED:   Lease terms are generally scheduled around Pepperdine University dates with flexible school end dates in April / May based  on exams and graduations per college.   During the summer, renters are usually college students from other parts of the country doing summer internships in the area ... or students wanting to experience a summer working at a Malibu resort. So, dates are  flexible, but for summer leases, there is a 60 day contract minimum.  Occupancy on the floor is usually for a total of 3 renters (with a single room and double room occupancies) with a maximum of 4 total renters.  Please note your preferred dates and  if there is flexibility for your arrivals and departures in your contact message.  Rooms are based on availability.

It is my belief I could not have found a better place to live than the situation I found at the townhouse. I know my fellow roommates at the time felt the same way.  To this day, I have kept in touch as she was not only a landlord, but also a friend.

Malibu area summer internship

Staying with Lisa was fantastic! She always responded quickly and was very helpful. I stayed with her through the pandemic and she was incredibly flexible when a lot of my plans were changing all the time. Would highly recommend and in a fantastic location!

I lived in this townhome for my junior year … I could not be more thrilled to move back in (for Sr yr).  It has been the most wonderful living situation I have ever been in.  As a young, female, college student, its difficult to know if you’re going to feel safe.    I feel truly lucky to have such a wonderful landlord.  Lisa is someone who cares for our safety and well being as well as a friend …  makes us feel safe and secure and truly cares about making her home a comfortable space.  Hospitality doesn’t begin to express her warmness.

​I was attending Pepperdine University on my G.I bill. Money was extremely tight ... I was in a panic trying to find a location close enough to the private Christian school that would not break my budget within the expensive rent of the Malibu area. Lisa's townhouse and dorm style rental was perfect. 

She was extremely kind to the few guests that I did invite over to the house. Her biggest concern was safety and a quiet environment for the other renters.  Lisa's biggest accommodation was when my 3 yr old daughter had the opportunity to visit me. I thought I would need to rent a hotel room to host my own kid. Lisa insisted that my daughter  stay during my visitations.
