Unless you have been a camper all your life, I don't think you will find ANYTHING luxurious about this ranch. I am befuddled by all the great reviews of this ranch. It's clean enough and friendly enough and helpful enough BUT, it is old, tired, worn out, dark, dingy and has dangerous plumbing ( shower water turns to scalding, with...

We stayed at Malibu Friday - Monday and no one wanted to leave, as usual. This is our 6 time staying and every time, it keeps getting better. the staff is so friendly and knowledgeable, very family friendly. One tip: know who you're traveling with. My kids love the outdoors and adventure. Once the car doors open, the kids are...

All I can say is wow! Having never been there, I wasn't sure what to expect. From the moment we got there, the staff was so friendly. Because the lodge wasn't booked for our stay, I was given my own room which was so nice. My family's room was a little chilly so they moved them without any complaints. The...

I can not stress enough what an amazing weekend my family and I had at the ranch this past weekend! We want to extend a heart felt "Thank You!" to the entire staff that went out of their way to please their customers and treat them like family. I will highly recommend the horse back riding! It was safe for...

Winter stay is the main house. It is a public place and not secured. Rooms are frigid so be prepared. No ventilation so get used to smoky atmosphere as you sleep. Staff and managers are not able to assist you as they are not trained in customer service. Farm handlers are the best. They should run the hotel. It would...

We took the kids for a long weekend during a break at school. Everyone was very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious and the lodge was delightful. The rooms could use a bit of updating but afterall it is a ranch! The staff went the extra mile to ensure we had the perfect experience. From creating...

What can I say about this place. It was awesome!! Everything I could have ever dreamed of. The people was friendly helpful, and kind. I would tell all my family and friends to go. The food is great, the horse ride is wonderful and the ATV ride was an experience. I would go back to this place again. Love it

This past weekend we stayed at Malibu. This was a Christmas gift. Very disappointed. 1. The prices are astronomical for the amenities. 2. Googling, there are other dude ranches, for less money, offering "luxury" stays with beautiful accommodations. Imagine - TV and wifi included! 3. Hayride was a joke, and if you could see the hospitatility of the driver -...

Our new home away from home which we hope to return to again and again! Amazing horses, fabulous riding! We were looking for a horse riding-centric, family friendly ranch and we found it! This is NOT your typical family "resort" with water park and nightly entertainment that also happens to have horseback riding. No, this is a pure and simple,...
