About Chris Blakely
The property, situated on a hidden cove in West Malibu, has been in the owners' family since 1948. The house was redesigned and rebuilt in 1992 by noted architect Ed Niles. Owned by two brothers since 2010, the house has been refurbished inside and out. Travertine floors upstairs were refinished in September 2015, and new sliding screen doors for the picture windows were installed in November 2015.
Chris Blakely purchased this House in 1948
Why Chris Blakely chose Western Malibu
This secluded beach is in one of the most beautiful coves in all of Malibu. That is why numerous celebrities have chosen to buy homes nearby. It is conveniently close to Zuma Beach, Trancas, and Point Dume to the south, Leo Carrillo, County Line and Neptune's Net to the north. We are a short drive up the coast from the Malibu Pier, Surfrider Beach, the Malibu Colony, Pepperdine University, Geoffrey's Restaurant and Paradise Cove.
What makes this House unique
Perfect location for swimming, kayaking, surfing, diving, fishing, standup paddling, skimboarding, windsurfing, or just relaxing! Unique set-up can accommodate more than one family. 3.5 miles from Trancas Canyon/Broad Beach shopping center. Close to shops and restaurants on Westward Beach, Heathercliff Road and Kanan/Dume. Little known fact: during the filming of the movie 'The Fan' the studio rented the house to provide 'green rooms' for the actors. Various other celebrities have chosen the location for their reality TV show, their rock video, and for their beauty product advertising.

Lovely home situated on sand in very secluded cove
This is my second time staying at this magical location in Malibu. Chris is a gracious and considerate host and the beach itself is the most private in Southern California --- bar none.
Spectacular Location. Beautiful house.
This is a wonderful house located right on the beach. My family spent four perfect days in this excellent house. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. We couldn’t have ask for more in a beach house.
Relaxing and awesome.
Family vacation, it wss a relaxing end to a hectic week. I slept like a baby with the relaxing break of the ocean.
Smack dab on the beach in beautiful secluded Encinal, what more do you need to know.
This was my family's first beach home rental vacation, and it was truly amazing! Close to everything in Malibu, and steps to a private beach, this was one of the most relaxing vacations I've ever had! Chris was responsive, and accommodating, and gave us recommendations for masseuse and chefs during our stay. I hope to make this an annual thing!
The Getty Villa and Adamson House Museums are popular, as are the numerous nearby parks, beaches and hiking trails.
