Malibu studio description

This is a newly remodeled studio apartment with a separate entry and off-street parking. A queen bed, kitchenette, dining nook and newly remodeled bathroom add comfort to amazing tree-top views and canyon vistas.

A 6-minute drive from PCH that has amazing views at every turn ends in a cute canyon community where Teddy Roosevelt even once had a hunting cabin back in the 1920's. The days of hunting are gone, but the wildlife remain. It's not uncommon to see red-tail hawks gliding through the canyon or a deer searching for acorns dropped by the oak tree in the driveway.

The sprawling hillside garden offers numerous benches to sit and take in the scenery with the rose garden swing bench being the most popular place to take in the sunset or a morning coffee.

Go for several different hikes just out your front door. Go for an hour or more with the views becoming more and more spectacular the higher you climb. A favorite afternoon hike climbs the opposite side of the canyon to give stunning sunset views over Malibu's Point Dume and takes about an hour round-trip.

Just down the hill, the beaches of Malibu await. A semi-secret beach just at the bottom of the road is a great place to start, or head a little south to the iconic Malibu pier for a stroll down the pier, around the lagoon, fine dining and great shopping. Heading northwest, the beaches become more spectacular, with stunning sea-caves and tide-pools galore.

This rental is also a great starting point for a luxurious winery tour set in the hills behind Malibu. Spend a day or half-a-day tasting local wines and enjoying stunning hilltop views as you travel to each new and unique tasting room.

Follow the paparazzi cameras for the not uncommon celebrity citing at the local grocery stores and restaurants.

                          Tucked in the hills of Malibu, this rental is only minutes from the world-class beaches of Malibu and only 45-minutes from downtown Los Angeles. With hiking trails literally at the front door, you can choose to go for a walk with the deer and hawks or simply relax in the garden and let them come to you.

                          The beaches in Malibu are not to be missed in the summer, and many know this, but not to worry since we know of a few secret beaches to escape the crowds that descend on the more popular destinations like Zuma. The surfing is spectacular as well, with gentle south swell all summer long and surf lessons available every day of the week. Talk with the owners to arrange a surf lesson.

                          Wine-tasting is another major must-do in Malibu. A short scenic drive up Latigo Canyon gets you to numerous wineries and tasting rooms in 15 to 20 minutes. The main destinations being Malibu Wine, Sip, Cornell, and the Malibu & Vine tasting room at the Malibu Country Club. Talk with the owners to arrange a wine tour.

                          Speaking of golf, the Malibu Country Club is a great place to play in a serene setting. Other nearby courses in Thousand Oaks and Santa Monica offer a wide variety of challenges and rates.

                          The Ghetty Villa is the nearest major museum, just a short 20-minute drive down scenic PCH. Over a thousand other museums are less than an hours drive in the greater LA area, with notables like the Ghetty Center and LACMA.

                          The real pleasure of Malibu is relaxing and enjoying the stunning nature it has to offer. From a relaxing beach day, to a gentle beach walk, and even the numerous canyon hikes scattered along the PCH, Malibu is so close to Los Angeles yet a world away.
