    We had a wonderful stay at the rider's nest we loved waking up to the horses and hearing them greet us as we came through the property. I sat out in the Courtyard area with some wine cheese and crackers and enjoyed watching the peacefulness .

    My brother and I did a writing retreat here for the weekend. We enjoyed watching the horses and the laid back remote vibes.

  • Amazing experience in Malibu hills


    Loved staying at Colin's travelers rest! Property is huge with great views in a comfortable and serene environment. My friend and I stayed for the weekend with our dogs since our friends were getting married at nearby Calamigos Ranch. Colin made sure we were well-taken care of and was usually on the property if we had questions or wanted to learn more about the property or horses. We loved being able to take walks and pet the beautiful horses. He was cool with our well-behaved dogs being there as well as my pup making friends with his gorgeous, friendly dog. Definitely recommend and can't wait to return for another fun weekend!!
