About Liz Bowlus

I was raised on the east coast but always knew in my heart that I would live in California. After renting in Malibu for a few summers I decided to take a lease for a year...this began my journey in finding my sanctuary. It took me a few years actively looking for a house I felt "at home" in. Once I drove through the gates I knew I would call the Rolling Stone Cottage home.

I love the lifestyle of Malibu, the laid back feel, it suits me well. It gives me great pleasure to welcome visitors and share this property with my guests.

Liz Bowlus purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Liz Bowlus chose World

The property has such a magical feel and is located on one of the prettiest streets in Malibu. The neighborhood has a country vibe even though it is so close to the beach. Horses take their daily strolls on our street and surfers carry their surf boards across PCH to ride the waves on Zuma. At the end of the street you will find a beautiful hike into the Santa Monica Mountains. This is truly the best of all worlds. I hope you are able to visit and see for yourself.

What makes this cottage unique

Even though the house is situated close to PCH it feels so removed. It's trees and koi ponds make the property feel like a sanctuary. Butterflies, Yellow Finch, Hummingbirds, Koi and a turtle named Mick grace the Rolling Stone Cottage grounds. Delight in the rose garden, or sample plums, apricots, avocado, tangerines or pears from the many trees during season.

Walk across the street to Zuma and Westward Beach or up the street to hike in the Santa Monica Mountains. Walk to restaurants, bars, and grocery store.

Wonderful retreat, convenient to everything Malibu.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property and home. You are in the middle of the Malibu area, across the street from Zuma beach and yet you feel remote and relaxed in this awesome retreat. Enjoy the day surfing, hiking and exploring Malibu and then enjoy your evenings sitting by the firepit and listening to the water scapes. Retire the day in an amazing bedroom that welcomes rest. This is our favorite stay away from home we have had yet. Thank you Liz!!!

Couldn't have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Rolling Stone Cottage! We were visiting Malibu for our 10 year wedding anniversary and wanted to be close to restaurants, etc. but also enjoy the beach and beautiful trails throughout the area. We thought the location was amazing -- you are SO close to the PCH (in a good way - as it is easy to get places), and the road noise never bothered us at all. It is very private. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. We felt like we were in our own little world with the beautiful rose garden, water feature, cozy fire place, shade of the oaks, lounge chairs, outdoor dining set... There is a small (under counter) fridge to store essentials. We bought yogurt parfait makings and ate outside to enjoy the surroundings. Another time we ordered take-out and enjoyed it fireside. I could go on and on! But equally as beautiful and cozy were the interior accommodations. Elegant and romantic. Simple and refined. Though we never saw Liz, her hospitality and personal touches were surely seen. Fresh cut roses welcomed us, bottled waters on the nightstands, coffee, tea (thank you!), all kinds of sweeteners, fresh cream, breakfast bars, etc. She has the touch! The bathroom was also very well stocked, shampoo and conditioner, body wash, PLENTY of quality towels and washcloths to dry yourself off after a nice bath in the claw foot tub or frameless glass shower. Plenty of closet space. She had beach towels, chairs and umbrellas for us to use. Also had bikes available (though we didn't end up using them). Truly, there was nothing we lacked. You can tell she loves what she does and she is GOOD at it! Everything was quality and comfortable (especially the bed!!). You can tell she takes pride in making it the best possible experience. She also provided a list of restaurants and POI. We enjoyed Zuma beach (walking distance) as well as several other beaches in the area. Nice not to have to worry about parking :) Would highly recommend the Rolling Stone Cottage to family and friends - and hope to one day come back if at all possible!! Thank you Liz for providing a little slice of paradise and going the extra mile to make it extra special! It showed!

Away from the chaos

  • 4 of 5

I had a pleasant 3-night stay at this little cottage on a private property off of the PCH; I had no idea how hectic Malibu could be and found this to be a nice respite away from the fast-pace of the area. The residence is a short walk away from Zuma beach and an all ages Italian eatery. Everything along the PCH is within easy driving distance. There isn't a kitchenette but there is a fridge and microwave for takeaway, in addition to tea/coffee maker which is nice for mornings, whatever you are planning for the day. The only drawback (but also an advantage re what I've written above) was how close it was to the PCH so light sleepers may find the road noise disturbing - otherwise - very nice space.
