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

Perfect hom for my non-profit Board retreat!
My 11 person, national non-profit Board of Director retreated here for 3 nights to work together and relax. We could not have been happier. The home provided the perfect spaces for us to meet and work as well as cook, as use the pool/hot-tub, and take advantage of the nearby beaches and hiking trails. We'd return!
you guys were great as well. Thanks for the kind review
Perfect Malibu home
Our family had an incredible time staying at this property during our daughter's wedding. The home and grounds were spectacular and exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this to anyone; we're already talking about a reunion visit!
Thanks for the kind review. Our joy comes from serving guests like you.
Come for the pool, stay for the huge TV room, multiple rooms for family and guests, huge amount of parking on site, and quality kitchen. We only needed help with one small problem, sprinklers turning on too early. This was quickly fixed with one phone call.
Thank you Ralph and Roger!
I could live in this backyard
What a lovely house. The grounds are amazing, and the house accommodated our group of 4 families. We loved the pool and the fire pit. I will warn families with small children that there is no fence or barrier around the pool. We had a 2-year-old and two 3-year-olds in our party and had to keep very close watch on them at all times to make sure they didn’t wander near the pool.
There was enough space for us to have a kids table and an adults table for each meal—a long table in the dining room, a table for four in the kitchen, a long table on the patio and a round table for 6 on the patio.
Each couple had their own room and the kids shared a number of beds. It would be nice if some of the beds were queens instead of full-sized. Would fit couples better. Also, two of the rooms are off the main house. One is a barn down at the bottom of the property. This worked well for our kid-less friend. Another room is the yoga studio, which is essentially like a studio. It’s a lot of space, but again, off the main house. We put a few of the older kids out there (two 6-year-olds and an 8-year-old) and they had fun.
Would definitely recommend this house.
Thanks for the lovely rerview. We try to please.
Amazing Rental in Malibu
A large group of our friends rented this property for a wedding weekend, and it was spectacular. The house is very comfortable for a large group of people. Further, the outdoor scene is incredible, with a brand new grill, heated pool, hot tub and fire pit as well as a huge porch.
We had some issues with the Wifi reception (it works, but it's not great), and Richard was a very accommodating host; he tried his best to help us resolve any issues and also provided us with a very thoughtful welcome gift of fruit and wine.
We only stayed for 4 days, but everyone commented that we wish we had stayed longer knowing how amazing the house was. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it!
Hello, let me apologize for the wifi. We doubled the speed with Frontier Fios after the issues we had and the i.t. man came in and put it a mesh to create great wifi all over the place. We have that covered now. I am sorry for any inconvenience this issue caused you.
For our family reunion it worked perfectly—close enough to the beaches for tide pooling and to the mountains for hiking. r perry
