About Kate Cullum

Family owned and operated property. We have lived in Malibu for 35 years and raised our family here. We've traveled the world and we have seen many spectacular places, but feel there's no place like home.

Kate Cullum purchased this house in 1991

Why Kate Cullum chose Los Angeles County

Two acres of everything.....natural beauty of Malibu, Ocean View and Mountain View, birds singing and soaring, peace and quiet and ocean breezes.

What makes this house unique

Location! Quiet, secluded and serene above the Pacific Ocean . Only 5 minutes to the closest beach. Centrally located in Mid Malibu and close to everything. Villa Valmere is a very relaxing and comfortable home. You will feel just like a local, living in a friendly neighborhood surrounded by the majestic beauty of Malibu and the lovely ocean breeze. The View from the Living Room says it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location and views--Responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

My family of four (kids age 9 and 11) had a great time staying at this house on Valmere, just off of Corral Canyon Road. The owner, Kate, greeted us, gave us the tour and ground rules, and provided a plethora of ideas for our week-long stay.

The house is well appointed for 4-6 people and best suited for cooking in the kitchen or on the spacious deck/outdoor veranda. Also, the location is perfect for going to the beach, Malibu's restaurants, Santa Monica, etc. We trekked into LA for some tourist activities and had no real issues with traffic, travel, etc. Overall, a fantastic location.

As for the owner, she was very responsive to a couple of small issues that we presented. I was satisfied with her response and follow up. She also refunded my security deposit in a very timely fashion.

Observations: the area has no cell service for AT&T. Also, the wifi is available in only one side (by the library) of the house. It's not a big deal when on vacation, but worth mention. Also, the house has no A/C. I'm guessing that 99% of the time this isn't an issue in the Malibu hills; however, the temps reached 95+ degrees the last two days of our trip. This heat, combined with the large picture window in the master-which has no window treatments-made for a toasty last couple of days. Again, this probably isn't usually an issue in Malibu, but we encountered 'Texas' heat in Malibu and it caught us off guard.

Overall, a fantastic trip for my family and I'd recommend Villa Valmere without hesitation. Thanks Kate for sharing your wonderful home.

The Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I cannot stress enough how amazing this property, the view, the environment and the wonderful owner Kate Cullum is. I rented this location for my wife's 40th birthday and hosted a Malibu Barbie birthday feast. The kitchen was well stocked and roomy enough for the chef I hired to whip up a delicious meal. There were more than enough vista points and comfortable lounge areas that the house never felt cramped. We stayed an extra day just so my wife and I could soak up the environment and relax. The bedrooms were lovely, the entire home has everything you could need - it was perfect.

Wonderful location for a family getaways, romantic weekends, social gatherings and stay-cations.

Many thanks Kate - you made my wife's birthday a weekend we will never forget.

Villa with charm and breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

I booked Villa Valmere for a girls weekend trip and was immediately blown away by the beauty and charm of the property. The views look like something out of a painting. Gorgeous decor, and all the appliances/kitchen tools/games you could ask for. Kate was a gracious host - extremely helpful and responsive! Thank you!

We had the most amazing time at this house. Kate was so nice and helpful. We kayaked all day one day very close by and had the best egg hunt ever on Easter Sunday for my two girls. The sunsets and starry sky's were just what we hoped for.

Really wonderful!

Beautiful view

  • 3 of 5

My family - a party of 6 - spent 10 days in Kate's wonderful house. The house is perfectly equipped and nicely furnished. The view over the coast of Malibu is beautiful and can be seen from all rooms in the house. The awesome beaches of Malibu are not far away but it takes a while to go to Los Angeles (40-60 min depends on the traffic). Unfortunately the only downer was that we had thousands of ants, especially in the downstairs bedroom and ON THE BEDS, so it was impossible to use the fourth bedroom which we needed for our big family. Even though an exterminator "cleaned" the house from "the outside", the ants came back and made it impossible to sleep on the beds. We were strongly disappointed that Kate did not do anything else to get rid of the ants and offered us to sleep on air mattresses and couches although we paid such a huge amount of money for this house. Unfortunately Kate was not at all cooperative in this situation and did not answer to our requests to solve this problem.

Owner's Response: The statements made in this review are completely false. I not only responded immediately to all concerns, but I have receipts and records from all services I supplied to prove my response. I paid for an exterminator, a handyman and a housekeeper to address their issue. I made 3 visits to the property myself. I offered a top of the line airbed to be set up in the sitting room, making an additional bedroom, but they refused to use it. I was in contact with them every single day of their visit, even during a family memorial, and have all correspondence to prove it. I did everything possible to make them comfortable and resolve their issues. There has never been an ant problem in that bedroom in the 25 years I have owned the house. Most importantly, there were no ants in the room when they checked in and no ants after they checked out. What they did to attract ants I do not know. But to say I was not cooperative and did not answer their requests is emphatically not true. One only needs to read all the other reviews to see that I am always responsive, I always take care of my guests, and I always want them to enjoy their stay at Villa Valmere. All of my guests seem to have done just that. These particular people have a hidden agenda. They have been dishonest and have made totally false statements.

Car: necessary

Villa Valmere is centrally located in mid Malibu and close to everything! Less than 5-10 minutes to all the beautiful beaches of Malibu, California. Villa Valmere overlooks Solstice Canyon State Park and it's popular Hiking Trails, as well as Paradise Cove and it's Famous Beach.

Casual and Fine Dining are 5-10 minutes, Upscale Shopping at The Malibu Country Mart and the Lumber Yard are just 8 minutes, as is the Malibu Movie Theater.

You are close to everything...yet away from it all!
