                                  Casa Portofino is perfectly situated on the seaward side of the Santa Monica Mountain Range and surrounded by the State Park. There are hiking and mountian bike trail gallore within walking distance. The environment feels remote but is located only 20 minutes from Malibu, Santa Monica and the San Fernando Valley and only 10 minutes from the Pacific ocean.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                                  A timeless place to seek refuge from the world.
