Property description

Just 35 minutes from Santa Monica is a place of wild beauty and serenity. The cottage in the olive grove sits among a new grove of olives and looks out over the beautiful blue Pacific. The cottage is entirely separate from the main building and is completely private.

Trails run from the house up into the Santa Monica Mountains, all the way to the Backbone Trail -- the spine of the west for hikers, runners, and riders. Surfing, swimming and kayaking are all to be found at Zuma Beach which is minutes away. Local vineyards offer tastings, and the produce from local farms is available on a seasonal basis, shopping and restaurants and movies theaters can be found 10 minutes away.

If you just want to relax, curl up with a book in the "nest" chair on the screened verandah and laze away the afternoon looking at the ocean and the hills. Or take a shower in the garden among the roses, or nap on the hammock under the trees.

As our guests you have access to the 2 miles of trails on our 19 acre property at any time. There are spectacular views and in spring the local wildflowers change the chaparral into a garden. Wild deer and rabbits come to the meadow below us and the hummingbirds hover when you take a shower in the garden.

The sunsets are a photographer's dream whether you view them from our lawn or down on the beach. The cottage in the olive grove offers you a simple but comfortable escape from the noise of the world and a unique view of Malibu.

About: My husband and I are trail runners and garden enthusiasts. We have lived together in the Santa Monica Mountains for 25 years and are still discovering the magic of this stunning mountain range on a daily basis. We love sharing our corner of the coast with people and showing them the best that the beaches and the hills have to offer. Locals from mountain bikers, to runners to horseback riders to deer and others stop at the water fountain by our gate on the way up and down the trails. We planted over 200 olive trees five years ago and are now watching them fruit. Our lives are busy and fulfilled and we feel privileged to live in such a beautiful place.

Why Central Malibu, Malibu, CA, USA:
We always dreamed of having a house on a hill overlooking the ocean and were lucky enough to be able to buy at the right time. Malibu has a growing allure as a vacation destination and we realized that other people would have the same dream that we did.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Serenity, peace, quiet, privacy -- and all within 10 minutes of the beach, shopping, marketing and Malibu's relaxed lifestyle. Watching the sunset from the daybed on the screened verandah, taking a long, lovely shower in the garden after a trail run down the mountain at our backs, eating a caprese salad made from the fresh tomatoes and lettuce at the Zuma farms. A day at the cottage is like a week anywhere else -- we emerge, relaxed, refreshed and restored to the world.
