About the property

4 BR/3 BA Malibu Home SLEEPS MAX 8 ONLY

This home has been completed remodeled. New wide-plank wood flooring through out, new bathrooms with all new fixtures and finishes, new kitchen with professional appliances, huge marble island, dual sinks, three ovens, and large built-in refrigerator. New landscaping, patios, and remodeled pool. Built-in sonos sound system allows guests to play music from phone or ipads. This house will not disappoint.


Sometimes describing the characteristics of a home falls short of capturing the essence. The specifics of this property are simple: the home is 2,315 square feet on one level with a 12,000 sq. ft. private yard with pool steps away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There are 4 Bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with one bedroom and bath separated from the others. The Living and Dining rooms have large sliding French-doors units and windows to connect one to the the large backyard with huge fifty year-old sycamore trees and a lush lawn. The entire property is fenced, including the front yard.

What is not easy to describe is the feeling that the property exudes. There is a wonderful quality of tranquility and peace - privacy and refuge. You feel as if you are in your own world. Rest from your cares in the backyard on comfortable club chairs, or sit by the fire in the living room, or simply relax in your own private pool (9' x 16').

All of the furnishings in the home are new. All of the beds and high-thread count linens are new. There are new smart LCD TV's in the Living room (47') and Master Bedroom (42'); each have apps to view Netflix streaming movies and listen to Pandora music. The home is casually furnished with taste and comfort in mind.

This beautiful home is a very short 5 minute walk to Zuma Beach. There are also two private tennis courts that are dedicated to the the residences. 2 minutes from the home are small shops, a wonderful market, a few restaurants, and even a Starbucks --

This home was conceived as a high-end, gracious rental. You will fall in love and never want to leave.

About Robert Mahterian

My wife and I both were born and raised in California. We love the beach, the privacy, and the community feeling of Malibu West. I am an architect who will one day retire to this peaceful and wonderful home.

Robert Mahterian purchased this house in 2012

Why Robert Mahterian chose Malibu

Out of all the areas along the 27 miles of shoreline in Malibu, we felt like this location offered the most privacy, sense of community, and best beaches. There is also something so wonderful about living in a beach community with such spectacular foliage. All the homes are surrounded by enormous trees and mature landscaping.

What makes this house unique

Most guest say the heated pool is really a nice touch. Proximity to Zuma and Broach Beach is very convenient; the community also has private tennis that are available to guests. The Trancas Market Shopping Center around the corner provides Starbucks, restaurants, and wonderful grocery store.

An Absolute Delight

  • 5 of 5

This house is an absolute delight. It is beautifully designed and decorated, yet with a simple elegance that makes it a very comfortable home. The full opening doors to the patio make an already spacious house even bigger. Our party of 3 adult couples and 2 children had ample space both in private quarters and common areas. Shopping and the beach are in easy walking distance, although you never have to leave the house to have a good time. Our family enjoyed the pool, ping pong tournaments, board games and movies.

We have rented many homes in the past few years, and this is a favorite, with none of my pet peeves: it was clutter-free, everything was in working order, all bedrooms had comfortable mattresses, there was no lengthy contract upon booking, and no labor and time intensive check-out instructions, and we received an immediate return of the damage deposit. Kudos to Robert (a very nice guy!) for creating such a beautiful space and making it available for others to enjoy.

Beach-side Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Robert was gracious in meeting us at the property, and walking through the House. The Home is so well-renovated and decorated. The pool and backyard are private and well maintained. The location is fantastic, just a 2 minute walk to the grocery store, restaurant and Starbucks. Absolutely wonderful stay.

Crazy Beautiful, Serene, Lovely Malibu Ranch

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the honor of staying at this amazing property tucked away in a quiet, Malibu neighborhood. We walked to the beach and to shopping. But the real joy was this well appointed home. Every detail, from the massive kitchen island to the white sheets and towels to the warm pool, made this home a place I did not want to leave! The fire pits warmed us both morning and evening over coffee. The pool cooled us after a day at the beach. We loved the ease of the washer and dryer and the ping pong table in the garage! So fun!!

We cannot wait to return next year and the next year and the next year . . .

Central casting---West Malibu--cool.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home is a treat to visit. A competent home is a privilege. This VRBO residence is both. The owners understand space (interior volume and exterior hard and green landscaping), lighting, privacy, common area flow and the central role of kitchen and dining real estate. They also appreciate beautiful surfaces, quality hardware, water pressure, solid doors and flooring comfortable under bare feet. It should not surprise, they are also fully accessible by cell phone throughout your planned stay.
