Starlite Malibu

Our stay at Starlite Malibu was perfectly handled in every way by Hidden Chic Villas. Booking was simple and our deposit returned in full in a timely manner. We were greeted at the property, and shown everything we needed to know, at our convenience. Carey was immediately available, both prior to our stay and during, when questions arose. I recommend HCV wholeheartedly. Susan Schulman

"Carey More is a rock star. We met with the hopes of renting my gorgeous Hancock Park House, but were surprised by our friendship and dedication to detailed perfection. Rarely do you meet someone who has your best interests and your family’s interests at heart. She wanted a perfect match for our home. The process was fun, painless and easy. She vetted the few she picked to tour the home, with ease and grace. Contracts were drawn and signed, with respect to both parties. Neither felt any burden, rather we felt elated. Two years rentals, two perfect fits. Carey has been a dream to work with. There is nothing I can say but thank you. Choose her, choose the best. That’s all there is to it." Anne Heche

Surf Beach House

"My family of 5 and a guest stayed at the Surf Beach House in Malibu during the Christmas and New Year’s week of 2017. I can honestly say the experience was spectacular in every way! The house itself is out of a Hollywood movie set; it is approached from a dramatic driveway off the Pacific Coast Highway, with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Inside, the house is filled with everything one would need for a fun filled vacation...a large pool, hot tub, and neatly manicured grass patio overlooking the ocean, access to a beautiful beach via a private path, sporting equipment, pool table and a gourmet kitchen, plus a huge outdoor grill! Carey More was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and made sure all our needs were met. She even arranged for the home’s concierge service to provide for a perfectly decorated Christmas Tree at last minute notice, making our stay a special holiday retreat. The Malibu Surf Beach house is a unique home, and Carey More was an excellent agent who listened to our needs and found the perfect place to meet our holiday needs. Thanks Carey! Mark S, from New York and Miami Beach"

Ahoy Beach House

Our family just enjoyed a perfect week in Malibu at this gorgeous house. The location is phenomenal about 5 minutes to the Malibu pier, and village, 8 miles from Santa Monica. The house has beautiful views from the open floor family room / kitchen (which is gorgeous and very well appointed with high end appliances and lots of plates, cups, bowls and cookware). The deck is amazing with two comfortable couches and a nice size dining table. They have lots of pillows and blankets so you can pretty much live out there. The master bedroom upstairs has the most amazing views and a private deck. All four bedrooms and bathrooms were new and very nice. The beds were ridiculously comfortable and there were plenty of towels, blankets, etc.. The warming lights outside ensured that we could be outside for the sunrise and sunset even in the chillier temps. The beach is perfect, and private. The water comes right up to the deck but recesses back with the tide and reveals a great beach for building sand castles etc. We absolutely loved this house and our week there! We will be back!!

"From the moment we walked in, we knew that we had made the right choice selecting Ahoy House in Malibu. From the incredible views in the living room, the wood burning fireplace, the charming decor, and luxury sheets and towels, everything was perfect. Thoughtful details were tucked everywhere including; refrigerators stocked with water and beer, a cooler filled with popsicles (which delighted our 8 year old twins) and beach toys. Carey More met us at the home and made sure that we knew where to find the grocery store and good local restaurants. We could not have had a better vacation home and we would happily stay here again!"

"Memory of a lifetime. One word. Wow. Opening the front door, you look thru a fabulous living room, past the grand piano, out the French doors, through one of several decks/patios/pergolas across a rolling expanse of manicured lawn, surrounded by intense beautiful flower cover, to see the sky blue, crystal clear Pacific Ocean. Wow. We were so bowled over by the very first view that we took pictures of each person's face as they walked in for the first time. The house was immaculate. The pool was pristine. The ping pong table and putting green kept adults and kids entertained. We slept with the windows open- falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Twice we had an awesome chef, Marcel Cocit, cook for us in the professional kitchen. Our only decision was which outdoor dining area to use! Carey More with Hidden Chic Villas was attentive, responsive, professional, and helpful with even the smallest details. We are already making arrangements to utilize her services in other regions, both in the US and internationally. The homes she represents are fabulous. This trip was a celebration- one my family will always remember, thanks to Carey and this beautiful home. The location "to all things Malibu" could not have been better. Awesome!"

"Perfect! The grounds on this property are the real star! I was blown away by the sprawling trails, pool, and every detail taken at every corner. It was so nice to be able to just leave the doors open and let the awesome California weather blow through. The home is very kid friendly as well. We absolutely loved our stay here!"

As soon as we got a new idea of our next destination, we will check your other spots in the world and get in contact with you again. Thanks a lot and best regards"

“Amazing week preparing for our Malibu wedding. It was our immense pleasure to stay at this villa for the duration of our wedding week in Malibu. We used it as our base for our family who flew in from the UK and every guest was blown away by the breathtaking views and epic scale of this beautiful home and grounds. It really added a rustic european quality to the whole experience which was greatly appreciated by all. Having met the owners who completely charmed us, we had no doubt that this was the place to have the most magical week of our lives. Overlooking the exceptional paradise cove, that had special significance to our family. Close to the country mart and Point Dume, we found ourselves in the perfect location to be able to relax and enjoy everything this gorgeous property had to offer. The Lindsay's have created something truly unique and so genuinely welcoming, their personal touch evident throughout... We cannot wait to come here again!”

"Your villa is superb and it was a joy for us all to stay there. The location is absolutely fabulous and there is something quite wonderful about setting the table with the produce of the estate, the delicious oils, tomatoes and wines.... I thought Maria Angela an absolute gem and such a wonderful cook. She wasn't at all phased by the numbers ..the evenings went smoothly and deliciously. The proximity to Lucca a plus."

"Through Hidden Chic we found a wonderful property in Los Angeles for our holidays. I came across Hidden Chic by chance and was very impressed with the choice of properties. Carey was pro-active and very patient in finding us the right property. The house definetely lived up to our expectations. We haven't quite decided what to do next summer....but I now know where to look for a nice property."

"Our Hidden Chic rental in Malibu last summer exceeded our expectations in every way. The quality of the house was much greater than what we had tried on other online sites. Carey and her partner understand what renters expect from a property: cleanliness and a little "wow". If it is on Hibdden Chic, I knowit it will be a quality property with all the right perks. I will never use another vacation rental company again."

"I had rented a 5 bedroom bastide in Provence through another company, this summer for two weeks in July, and unfortunately it was not at all suitable for myself and my guests. Charming, but with only one large bedroom and the others extremely small, pool problems, not enough furniture in the living area, and a poorly eqipped kitchen. PANIC. I had to find a suitable villa with no notice at all at the peak time of summer. I called Clare Beresford at Hidden Chic and although she herself was traveling she got on it straight away.Within 2 days I had a choice of houses and decided on a lovely house in the Luberon. She also organized a cook through friends of hers, and a housekeeper, all at the last minute. I think it took all of 2-3 days. Without her and Carey's considerable help and expertize we would have been stranded, and myself extremely embarrassed.These guys are the best, professional and charming, and with great taste and style. I will of course not hesitate to use them in the future, these girls are PROS!"

"My family recently employed Hidden Chic to find us a home in Los Angeles. While finding us a fabulous home, Carey also extended her services to find us a housekeeper, nanny, large SUV and buy groceries for our arrival. Travelling with small children is never easy. Carey was helpful at every turn and made our stay hassle free. I would definetely use Hidden Chic again and have reffered them to a ton of friends in New York. Please feel free to call me with any questions: 917 861 7791"

"Hidden Chic Villas were a pleasure to deal with. They sourced some outstanding contemporary homes for us and handled the whole booking and entry process in a personal style. Travelling long haul to LA in a party of 7 was eased significantly by working with such experts. We will be using them again!"

"We are well-seasoned travellers, having been to far corners of the globe over the past 20 years. Adventure, luxury, cities, beach escapes - we had done it all. This past winter we decided that we wanted to rent a house for a few winter months, somewhere warm, intersting, comfortable. We have rented houses before but honestly, it was never a good experience. What Carey More found for us was truly a dream-come true, in many ways. She made a great effort to get to know us and to fully understand our requirements, our tastes. From the moment that we signed our rental contract for a house in Careyes, Mexico, Carey made certain that everything would be perfect for us. And indeed it was. So much so that we fell in love with Careyes and we have decided to buy a house there. If it weren't for Carey, and her unique ability to grasp exactly what her clients want, we would never have experienced this wonderful paradise. I would recommend Hidden Chic to anyone who is looking for a truly custom-made, care-fee holiday rental, with a choice of some of the world's most beautiful and glamorous locations."

"My wife and I rented this home for our wedding in February. It is absolutely amazing and I cannot recommend it more highly. The views are stunning and the home is decorated and furnished to the nines...but still very comfortable which we liked. Our wedding party was fairly small - around 30 people in total - and the home set up perfectly for our event. Because the home was so beautiful, we didn't need to do much in terms of decorating....and our wedding photos turned out great!!! The bedrooms were spacious and offered plenty of room for some of our family to stay with us. Of particular note is the master bedroom. It comprises the entire upper level on the west-facing side of the home, and the views overlooking the ocean are simply amazing!! This location along Broad Beach is one of my favorite spots in Malibu. It offers beach front access, but is also a little quieter. We really liked that. Finally, the owner and agent were both so friendly and helpful to our family. The owner even came to the house during our even to help out and make sure everything went smoothly for us. We really appreciated that. It was a very nice touch! I would highly recommend this house for an event, or family vacation. We will definitely stay here again!!"

"For my birthday this year, I planned a weekend getaway to L.A. with my closest girlfriends. I worked with Carey to find the perfect house to create a true Hollywood, glamorous atmoshere and she found us the "White House". Its tucked away in a beautiful spot in the canyons of Beverly hills - exclusive and private -with glorious views. The house was spectacular and was the perfect place for us to relax, unwind, chillput by the gorgeous pool and sit in the hot tub in the evenings to chat and catch up. We had the most perfect weekend, and Carey offered any and all assistance we could need or ask for. Her true commitment to superior customer service was noted and appreciated. We all left feeling pampered and refreshed. Now we all want to try out other homes on her website!We're already planning for next year! LOVE Hidden Chic Villas -pure luxury and superior quality. Highly recommend!"
