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.

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.

perfect for family get together!
This is the family's third year of staying at this fantastic property . It is perfectly situated and has a beautiful private beach. There are friendly neighbors but one usually has the entire beach to him/herself. We plan to go next year. Malibu is a great enclave where celebrities are everywhere. It just adds to the idyllic environment. The landlord is quick to fix any issues that might arise. I recommend it without any hesitation.
perfect location, great house and lovely beach!
A wonderful week! a great house with two separate living spaces with own entrances. Beautiful location with fabulous beach.
Outside furniture needs some updating!
I would certainly plan on coming back! Chris is a wonderful, generous host.
Thank you so much! I have taken your suggestions to heart and purchased new patio chaises, new cushions and new beach chairs as a start. We have also serviced the alarm system, replaced the hose faucet, repaired the lazy Susan cupboard door and installed a new shower head in the full bath upstairs. We look forward to your return to a much-improved house!
This is our second visit to Chris's home. The property is as described and so much more. The views from the patio and deck include amazing sunsets, dolphins and seals. Walks on the secluded, pristine beach are a highlight. A tip.Check out the tidepools. Fun discoveries abound. Local restaurants and Vintage Grocer were added benefits.In summary, perfect home and location.
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.
