BREATHTAKING VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM! Perched above Malibu Pier and Surfrider Beach, this former celebrity-owned 5 acre estate is delightfully private. Hiking trails start at the foot of our driveway and ramble down to the beach and up across the Backbone trail! Outdoor living boasts a pool, jacuzzi, sun platform, fire-pit, BBQ, and large trampoline. Our newly remodeled home is also a entertainer's delight with gourmet kitchen, wet bar, Viking appliances, ultra HD TVs and SONOS throughout! This stunning architectural house has walls of glass to experience breathtaking ocean and mountain views. Perfect for a gathering of family, friends, or a meditation retreat, our home is adjacent to the renowned "Wright Ranch." It is also just a 15-minute drive to the beach and 25-minutes from Santa Monica, Calabasas, Woodland Hills or Westlake Village. When renting our home, you will have access to all three stories. TOP FLOOR boasts master bedroom with infinity shower and private walk-in closet; two guest rooms each with their own bathroom, a loft bedroom and laundry. MIDDLE FLOOR features a living room with wet-bar and fireplace, gourmet kitchen with indoor / outdoor dining, pool, sun deck and fire-pit. BOTTOM FLOOR features two-bedroom guest quarters, one with its own kitchenette and private bath. The neighborhood is perfect for hiking, biking and motor cycle riding during the day, in fact, many love practicing their driving and cycling skills on our mountain roads! At night, there are plenty of hotspots within a 15 minute drive. DINING: At the bottom of our primary road is Saddle Peak Lodge, LA’s most iconic fine dining -- and critically acclaimed New American menu -- most notable for its emphasis on exotic wild game. At the tip of Malibu Pier is Malibu Farm, a magnet for A-list "Malibuites" who come in with their kids for farm-fresh food. NIGHT LIFE: Cafe Habana, a hip, festive Cuban & Mexican restaurant which features taco nights, karaoke, and a lively bar scene. Malibu Wines has a wonderful picnic spot and live bands playing in warm seasons. Though there are many more hot-spots we could mention, most people never want to leave the estate, simply because it is its own paradise. NOTE FOR THOSE TRAVELING WITH CHILDREN: When the large sliding doors opened off of the kitchen are opened, there is no barrier from entering the pool. Those with young children that do not swim, need to keep those doors shut or always be aware of exactly where your children may be. We do not keep the pool heated but if you would like it warm, there is a $100 + $50/day charge. That said, we always expect you to use the jacuzzi! If there are more than 8 guests staying on our property, we charge $100 for each additional person (with the exception of infants and day or single evening guests). WE ALSO TAKE GREAT CARE TO RESPECT THE PEACE AND TRANQUILITY OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND ITS RESIDENTS. PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY DOWN THE PRIVATE ROAD -- THERE ARE CHILDREN WHO LIVE HERE!

We loved our time at Lee and Steve's place. We used the house for a business-owners retreat for 8 of us and it was perfect. The views are amazing. The house has so many great amenities, places to gather and, really, everything we needed. We did a nice hike right from the house, spent some wonderful time in the pool and could not get ourselves to go to bed in the evening as we would all gather outside and not want to stop looking at that view. Lee and Steve were the best hosts, easy to communicate with and full of information - including providing one of the best guides to the home, areas and resources that I have seen. My only reason I have not to strongly recommend this place to everyone else is that it will make it harder for me to book it next time I want to say there!!!
Great property for large families!
Our family of 10 stayed at Lee and Steve’s gorgeous home for our son’s graduation weekend. Lee is fabulous... not only did she greet us on arrival, but she had our groceries ready and waiting as well! The house was perfect for us with the beautiful outdoor salt water pool and jacuzzi tub just outside the kitchen.
The bedrooms are very functional and all the beds have memory foam mattresses.
We loved the outdoor grill and the kitchen had absolutely everything we needed!
The built in coffee system is the only ammenity that was a bit difficult...I’m certain other guests are more tech savvy than we are! Would highly recommend this property.
Geri, thank you for entrusting us to host your family on such a special occasion and for all of your kind words about our home and our care-taking. You are a very special lady and we were so glad to make your acquaintance! We hope there is an opportunity to host you again, and that would be our pleasure! Congrats again on your son's graduation! ~Lee + Steve
A perfect retreat
This is a wonderful house for a large party to enjoy being together. The house is exceptionally well equipped both inside and out. Lots of thoughtful touches to make the stay enjoyable. We were exceptionally lucky with the weather. Down at the coast in Malibu and Santa Monica it was misty and overcast. We were above the clouds bathed in sunshine. The children had a wonderful time in the pool and we did some lovely walks in the hills. Definitely a 5 star experience.
We really enjoyed the opportunity to host your family! We hope we earn the opportunity to do it again! You all were such a great group! ~Lee + Steve
Absolutely stunning views and a once in a lifetime experience!!!
My wife and I stayed here at this beautiful house for 3 days and even chose this place for our wedding! I will say that the views are more than remarkable-stunning, even breath-taking. We thankfully stayed on clear days so we could see Santa Monica pier in the distance as well as the Malibu pier in the distance. The privacy of being in the hills of Malibu as well as still having that golden ocean view in MALIBU cannot be beat nor overstated. We thoroughly enjoyed the temperate weather and cool winds from the ocean as well as the spectacular views. We recommend staying multiple days as it’s impossible to really soak it all in with just one or two days. We recommend it 100%!
We really enjoyed having you as our guests, Kenneth! Thank you for your thoughtfulness and great communication throughout! We look forward to the next opportunity to host you again! ~Lee + Steve
A Beauty Up in The Hills
The drive 5 miles up the mountain from the pacific coast to this house is an adventure but definitely worth it! The house is huge and beautifully decorated. We slept 10 adults with no problems. And every bedroom has a door to an outside terrace or balcony. We had beautiful sunsets every night. Looking down you can see the Santa Monica coast and pier on your left and the Malibu pier on your right. We had one morning where the coastline was covered with fog while we were above it and in bright sunlight, very cool. My sisters and brothers in-law hiked around every morning and just loved the sights and plants they found. We also had several groups parasail from a small take-off area right in front of the pool area, this was really great to watch. We used the pool, jacuzzi, and the firepit and loved them all. Foodwise, we had good pizza and great Persian food delivered, a nice convenience. And we think Ralph’s is a great supermarket, not too far away. We had a great time and all my family said it was definitely a new and fun experience for all of us. We recommend!
You and your family were such great guests to host, and we'd genuinely love to welcome you back if you ever want to visit Malibu again! You really went above and beyond to be good care-takers of our home, and we appreciate that very much! We were very honored to be a small part of such a big life event with your daughter's wedding at Calamigos Ranch as the reason for your stay with us. Congratulations again! Hope we keep in touch! ~Lee + Steve
We had an amazing stay at Lee and Steve's beautiful house. The view was incredible, we spent most our time in the very spacious kitchen that opens on the pool. Wifi was working well.
I highly recommend this house is you want a total disconnect!
