Property description

FOR INFORMATION ON SPECIAL EVENTS OR USING THE PROPERTY AS A LOCATION FOR PHOTO, FILM, OR VIDEO SHOOTS, PLEASE VISIT CASAENCANTADA (DOT) WORDPRESS (DOT) COM OR CONTACT US.

Romantic stone guest cottage is nestled in park like grounds, which are adjacent to Leo Carillo State Park and miles of gorgeous trails. A 5 minute drive from one of Malibu's finest beaches--Leo Carrillo State Beach. Haven for hikers, mountain bikers, motorcyclists, beach goers, or those who just want to sit and rest. English, French, Spanish, Italian, and German spoken by the owners.


Detailed Description of Property: Get away to a one of a kind oasis in the hills of Malibu. A rare wonderland 5 minutes from Leo Carillo Beach, one of Malibu's prettiest, and surrounded by miles of state park and trails. The property itself is like being in a secluded park, with the only neighbors anywhere near being the friendly, quiet property owners who live up top and are available to help you with anything you need, including fresh herbs from the garden and tips on where to go around town. One is a Malibu native, and they both have lived all over the world and speak German, French, Spanish and Italian, in addition to English. Your home is a large cottage built out of the stones from the surrounding mountainside. Enjoy the winding brick and stone paths through the grounds where you can visit 4 friendly chickens or the charming organic garden.

Cottage Amenities: It is beautiful and luxurious, equipped with a California king size bed decked in bamboo linens, a full kitchen, wireless high speed Internet, 42' flat screen TV, dvd and cd player, and a large stone two person shower. Outside, you may help yourself to lounge chairs or an outdoor eating area with gas grill.

Nearby Surroundings: The property is located in northern Malibu, which is the part of the Los Angeles coastline most protected from development. There are dozens of beaches a short drive away in addition to Leo Carillo, which is at the bottom of the hill. For example, Zuma Beach is about 10 minutes away. Nature trails are all over--a lovely one is less than a five minute walk away. The property is adjacent to Mulholland Hwy, which is a favorite for those who love to bike. We are about 15 minutes from local shopping, and within a half hour, you can be at all kinds of shops--in Malibu, Agoura Hills, among other neighboring towns. We are an approximately 45 minute drive to Santa Monica and Santa Barbara.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are husband and wife--She born and raised in Malibu before schooling, working and living on the East Coast and Europe for years. He is German and his lived all over Europe, in Africa, and has worked all over the world. Our professional field is sustainability and energy policy. She is a policy analyst and advocate, and he specializes in media and marketing. We love our two dogs as family members and are living our dream, of which we hope to share a slice with you soon.

Why the Owner Chose Malibu:
One of us is a Malibu native and still a home girl at heart. Both of us have longed to live where we can breathe easily, grow our own food, have water from our own well, enjoy natural and architectural beauty, and still be close to our urban and family responsibilities. After years of searching, we finally got lucky.
