About the property

4 Bdrms, 3.5 Baths. Sleeps 8. Parking for at least 4 cars.

Malibu Lifestyle! Forget civilization in this Cape Cod Malibu beach house that sits just 45 seconds above Pacific Coast Hwy and enjoys 180 degree plus ocean views from Palos Verdes to the Anacapa Islands. The spacious master bedroom has walk-in closets and it's own living-room size outdoor deck. A second even larger deck downstairs makes this an excellent entertainment home - and equally suited for private retreats. The ample, landscaped yard makes the setting private and serene. 5 minutes to Trancas Market and Zuma Beach. Other beaches are one minute by car - or walk to them. Nearby restaurants. Perfect for vacations or short term luxury housing. Priced below comparable properties.

Ideal location for Bride and Groom to be or their guests attending nearby weddings at Calamigos Ranch, The Sunset Restaurant/Banquet facility, or Rancho Sol del Pacifico. SORRY, WE DO NOT RENT THE PROPERTY FOR WEDDINGS.

Location: This charming Cape Cod house is located in scenic and serene west Malibu just 45 seconds above Pacific Coast Highway. The rental rates are very competetive compared to similar Malibu properties. The grounds are landscaped with mature trees and a gardener is included. The views are perhaps the best in Malibu and afford excellent sunset watching. If you are attending a wedding or any event at Calomigos ranch, this home is just 8 minutes away, and is nicer and closer than any hotel. The home itself has a very open and private resort feel, and is not boxed in by neighboring properties. You will not want to leave!

The House: The home is a tasteful, up-to-date, 2 story beach house designed for an in-door-out-door lifestyle. The deck spaces make it great for entertaining. It is large enough for families, and is just as good as a romantic retreat for two. The kitchen contains an indoor grill. Almost all rooms have an ocean view. There are two fireplaces and several flat screen TVs..

Nearby Attractions: Ample hiking, horseback riding and mountain bike trails and wilderness parks are close by. Many Beaches, including famous Zuma Beach, are only minutes away. Matador Beach is a wonderland of caves, cliffs, rock formations and tide pools. Leo Carillo and County Line Beaches are known for their surfing and kite-boarders. Great shopping, dining and movie star sightings are offered at Malibu's main commercial hub comprising the Malibu Country Mart, The Colony Shopping Center and the newly opened 'Lumber Yard.' Another visitor favorite is the Malibu Pier where you may dine, fish for your own food, or simply stroll. There are also a number of restaurants and bars within 5 - 10 minutes drive of the house, including The Sunset, Hideaway Cafe Paradise Cove. The How's Trancas shopping center is a five minutes drive and a Pavillions supermarket 7 minutes. A public golf course is 10 minutes away. Close by winetasting in local vineyards.

About Tom

Nature, tranquility and a laid back community with Hollywood flair made Malibu an idyllic place to raise a family. With our kids are in college now we have decided to open our home to guest travelors while we do some traveling of our own.

Tom purchased this house in 2002

Why Tom chose Western Malibu

This property has a sense of quiet privacy coupled with expansive views of ocean and mountain. The floor plan, including large both up- and downstair decks, makes it great for large families, family reunions, retreats, or groups of friends. Plus a yard and lots of out door land for kids to run about. Why rent hotel rooms? With four bedrooms and ample space inside and out you will pay less for much more by choosing this home.

In addition, if you are coming to town for a wedding at venues like The Sunset Restaurant, Calomigos Ranch, Malibu West Club, the home provides close-by convenience and a great "home base" for family or wedding party.

Five minutes to shopping and restaurants.

Our family felt at home in this beautiful setting from infant to grandparents!

  • 5 of 5

The interior is comfortable and spacious yet most of our time was spent on the outside decks with a mesmerizing ocean view. The landscaping in the lower garden and to the top of the hill is fantastic. La Pedira beach is a treat as we hiked the trail then climbed down a ladder to access this delightful cove. We really hope to return in the years ahead.

Malibu Wedding

  • 4 of 5

The size of the house with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths worked out great for the 8 adults we had.

The view was fantastic. The only item was the kitchen needed to be cleaner for making meals.

We had a great week staying there.

Fabulous location, amazing house

  • 4 of 5

Great for large families with 4 bedrooms including a master upstairs with private bathroom, deck and Jacuzzi. Size is amazing with open floor plan, really close to several state beaches, less than ten minutes from great market to stock up. Kids loved it! Some kitchen appliances, cabinets are fairly dated but still functional.

Beautiful Malibu home- amazing views

  • 5 of 5

LOVED OUR STAY! This home was just so beautiful, open and bright. This place is a must visit! We stayed here for our wedding week with our out of town family and friends. This place was comfortable, plenty of room, and the views from the porch and balcony are just out of this world! Tom was amazing, and always there to help with questions. We had another rental down the road for more of the bridal party, and I will tell you that our experiences were night and day between the two, and Tom makes you feel so welcome and I cannot wait to come back for another stay. Thank you Tom for making my wedding week so perfect, getting to stay in a Malibu dream home was truly an amazing experience. Close to the beaches, and just an all around great stay.

Wonderful House

The house is private, large and has a terrific view of the ocean. Perfect for a large family or big group of friends. The property has a large patio and big garden below. We had a great stay.
