The Artist House at Malibu Island

Wonderful and ideal get away location

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely lovely, private and with the most stunning views of the Malibu hills. It was close enough to eateries but perfect for staying in as well. The deck is lovely and the hand made hot tub is gorgeous. This is the perfect retreat spot in Malibu!

Not just a bed but truly an experience!!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a peaceful spot that renewed the spirit. My husband and I were there for a month enjoying the balance between the beach and the mountains. We went on over a dozen hikes, and each brought a spectacular reward of a beautiful vista. The Pacific is the Pacific - vast, blue, and with beaches much less crowded than the East Coast. The owner, Chantal, is charming and so gracious. She is willing to share her life stories, recommendations to help you find a restaurant, shop, etc. that you would like, or give a tour of the property if you have time but allows privacy too. Her staff was there to help as well. My favorite time of day was watching the sunrise while sitting out on the deck, which has lots of comfortable seating. You can look out over the canyon to the ocean and read, lounge, or soak in the hot tub.

I wish I could upload some of our pictures as well. The beauty of property and the art displayed are special. We will definitely put this home on our revisit list!

A peaceful island in the sky with charm and warmth

  • 5 of 5

This is a special place. The Artist's House is part of a small complex which includes the residence of the owner. There is plenty of privacy yet the owner is nearby and very helpful as needed. The view, gardens, art and the quiet would bring us back, but the rooms and kitchen were great too. Lots of outdoor opportunities nearby.

Chantal was wonderful and her Artist house accomodated the 9 of us quite comfortably!

The Hot tub and grill were great and there was everything we needed to cook all of the meals we had brought.

The bed I slept on was super comfortable and I had no complaints from anyone!

We cant wait to visit again!

Mountain Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Artist House was so beautiful, it blew my mind! Chantal was a welcoming and wonderful host, she even gave us a full tour of her property. The unit looks down over the mountains and straight out to the pacific ocean. The house was full of light, clean, spacious and very comfortable for our whole group. Succulents, bougainvilleas, and beautiful artwork everywhere! We dined outside on the patio, there are so many perfect spots to sit outside, sunbathe and enjoy the amazing view. Hope to return again for sure!
