Romantic stone guest cottage is nestled in park like grounds, which are adjacent to Leo Carillo State Park and miles of gorgeous trails. A 5 minute drive from one of Malibu's finest beaches--Leo Carrillo State Beach. Haven for hikers, mountain bikers, motorcyclists, beach goers, or those who just want to sit and rest. English, French, Spanish, Italian, and German spoken by the owners.
Detailed Description of Property: Get away to a one of a kind oasis in the hills of Malibu. A rare wonderland 5 minutes from Leo Carillo Beach, one of Malibu's prettiest, and surrounded by miles of state park and trails. The property itself is like being in a secluded park, with the only neighbors anywhere near being the friendly, quiet property owners who live up top and are available to help you with anything you need, including fresh herbs from the garden and tips on where to go around town. One is a Malibu native, and they both have lived all over the world and speak German, French, Spanish and Italian, in addition to English. Your home is a large cottage built out of the stones from the surrounding mountainside. Enjoy the winding brick and stone paths through the grounds where you can visit 4 friendly chickens or the charming organic garden.
Cottage Amenities: It is beautiful and luxurious, equipped with a California king size bed decked in bamboo linens, a full kitchen, wireless high speed Internet, 42' flat screen TV, dvd and cd player, and a large stone two person shower. Outside, you may help yourself to lounge chairs or an outdoor eating area with gas grill.
Nearby Surroundings: The property is located in northern Malibu, which is the part of the Los Angeles coastline most protected from development. There are dozens of beaches a short drive away in addition to Leo Carillo, which is at the bottom of the hill. For example, Zuma Beach is about 10 minutes away. Nature trails are all over--a lovely one is less than a five minute walk away. The property is adjacent to Mulholland Hwy, which is a favorite for those who love to bike. We are about 15 minutes from local shopping, and within a half hour, you can be at all kinds of shops--in Malibu, Agoura Hills, among other neighboring towns. We are an approximately 45 minute drive to Santa Monica and Santa Barbara.

Why Owner chose Malibu
One of us is a Malibu native and still a home girl at heart. Both of us have longed to live where we can breathe easily, grow our own food, have water from our own well, enjoy natural and architectural beauty, and still be close to our urban and family responsibilities. After years of searching, we finally got lucky.

Awesome place to retreat! Can’t wait for my next trip!
Had a great time here. The owners are very welcoming and knowledgeable of the area. Would highly recommend.
Magical stone cottage
We really enjoyed staying in this unique and quiet hideaway, which is actually even nicer than the photos. It feels remote but is only a few minutes up the road from Malibu beaches. Love the central fireplace! There are a lot of hikes you can do, as well as good shops and restaurants nearby. This is a wonderful spot to unwind!
Thank you so much, Fran, for visiting, and we are so glad it was a good experience for you!
Awesome back country cottage perfect for couple
Can’t add much to prior reviews of this excellent cottage. Incredible stonework patios and stone round house. Hosts have thought through many details to make your stay both lux and practical, for example with cooler and ice packs for beach or groceries, excellent hiking trail book in addition to beach towels/toys. But you won’t want to leave the cottage!
We stayed for 2 1/2 months and highly recommend. Separate guest house on large gated property was ideal for our dog. Only a couple of miles up the canyon from Leo Carrillo surfing and another couple miles further up the canyon to great mountain biking. Great hosts. Easy living.
Great Malibu House in Perfect Location
We lived in Malibu for 30 years, then moved away. But we came back for an extended trip starting and ending in this special place. The stone guest house, a short distance from the nicest beaches around, was a perfect home away from home. One couldn't ask for more.
We were so delighted to have you and your sweet dogs make this your home away from home!
Other Activities: hiking, wine tasting, farmer's markets
