About Richard Johnson

I have been renting this property on Homeaway for quite some time. I was born in California, grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and returned to California in 1978. I work as a television/film/theatre actor in Los Angeles. It is my pleasure to work to help visitors enjoy their trips to Malibu. Lotsa local knowledge here.

Why Richard Johnson chose Western Malibu

This property is special because of it's secluded feeling, despite being only minutes from markets, restaurants, and surfing.

What makes this house unique

The property is extremely well maintained with great gardens, swimming area and a pro active attitude towards general upkeep

For our family reunion it worked perfectly—close enough to the beaches for tide pooling and to the mountains for hiking. r perry

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

The Deerhead property was even better than we expected. The description and pictures could not convey the beauty and tranquility, all while being just a few minutes from the beach and all Malibu has to offer. Richard is helpful, nice and very interesting! The large home easily accommodated 15 family members for our son's wedding, even in the kitchen at the same time. We recommend the home and would like to return.

Amazing property, amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

It was hard to find a property in Malibu that could accommodate my group of 15 for my family vacation. This place gave us everything we needed and much more. Reasonably priced, great location, owner was great to deal with and the place was exactly as advertised. I highly recommend it and would go back for another memorable experience. It was difficult to leave the place without feeling sad.

You will not regret staying here! It was AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

So we stayed here three nights in May and had our wedding reception in the backyard. We had the ceremony just up the street on the beach at Point Dume ($400 for the permit). A baby grey whale even showed up right before the ceremony began. The house is so beautiful and there was plenty of room for everyone. My family and some friends in the wedding party stayed with us. The house has an amazing view of Malibu and it is very secluded away from all the other houses. I had my family/ friends draw names out of a hat for best room, but all the rooms were so great there was nothing to fight over. There is even a rustic cottage away from the house my mom and Aunt stayed in that was practically noise free. Richard the manager might be the nicest guy in the world. He took extra time to show us how to work the hot tube and sound system and went out of this way to make sure our stay was perfect. He also gave us our deposit back in full the same day we checked out. Our wedding turned out so wonderful and we are so happy we found this place. The only regret we had was not staying longer. After driving on the bumpy roads in Costa Rica for two weeks for our honeymoon we missed our relaxing castle by the sea.

Great property for events

  • 4 of 5

I have done several events at this property now and each time had a good experience. They have a nice area for cocktail hour, a kitchen accessible for the catering staff, beautiful view and fairly easy load in and load out. The management team is also professional and accessible. I would recommend this to others.

Repeat Renter!

  • 4 of 5

I have rented this property regularly for the past 5 years. It is perfect for our family and friends. Grand, yet so comfortable. Everyone has their own space and the grounds are gorgeous. I love to cook, and the kitchen in the house is amazing. I've up to 20 people in the kitchen while cooking and it was wonderful. It's like a private resort but close to shopping and walking distance to Zuma Beach. Zuma is never crowded and always pristine. The manager is very accommodating and eager to make sure everything is just right. We look forward to returning to this piece of paradise every year.
