1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, Ocean Views from every room!
Love the panoramic ocean views, play at nearby beaches, hike memorable mountain trails. Malibu has it all for a perfect seaside adventure. Whether it’s a romantic interlude, family fun or peaceful solitude by the sea, our guest apartment--Deja Bu--is right where you want to be for a lovely coastal escape. You can’t help but love the ‘Bu (Malibu to locals)!
This charming 1 bedroom/1bath guest apartment boasts your own private ocean-view patio, private entrance, full kitchen, washer/dryer, fully-tiled floors and high-quality furnishings. Located on a quiet street just 400 yards from the ocean as the crow flies and a two-minute drive, the enchanting blue Pacific fills the expansive window views from every room in the apartment. In fact, you’ll never get tired of gazing over the beguiling and ever-changing ocean from the queen-sized bed. From our elevation of 380 feet on a clear day, you can see several Channel Islands including Catalina, and if you’re lucky, you might even spy a whale and her calf on their way north from Mexico.
Within minutes of Malibu’s gorgeous beaches including world-famous Zuma Beach, Leo Carrillo Beach and Paradise Cove, and a plethora of hiking and mountain biking trails that join the 65-mile Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains, this apartment is also just a short drive from Pepperdine University, the Malibu Pier, wineries, the world-renowned Getty Villa antiquities museum, and notable Malibu shops and restaurants. The apartment is also an excellent starting point for road bicyclists riding the scenic Pacific Coast Highway route to Point Mugu. For touring by car, it is approximately 45 minutes from Santa Monica and 75 minutes from Santa Barbara. Many of Los Angeles’ museums, including the famed Getty Center and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), are within a 60-minute drive.
But we’re still far enough from the city lights to offer views of starry nights, the milky way, moonglow on the ocean, and even the occasional night-time rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

About Larry Stokesberry
The guest apartment is the ground floor of a lovely Malibu home. When the owners (who live on the second floor) realized they didn’t need so much room for just the two of them, they decided to offer the lower level as a guest apartment. Both are avid tennis players, beach volleyball players and hikers, so they can point you in the right direction for a myriad of the wonderful outdoor activities Malibu has to offer.
Larry Stokesberry purchased this Apartment in 1993

My husband and I stayed a weekend here with our baby. The owners are incredibly hospitable and genuinely nice people. The apartment is very comfortable and has incredible views. It is in a very convenient location not too far from restaurants and really close to some very nice beaches. We will definitely be staying here again.
My wife and I spent a relaxing long weekend recently at Deja Blue. Everything in the apartment was just as described and looked even better in person than the photos. But it was all the thoughtful little touches that made our stay even better: from the soft-close kitchen cabinets, to the fresh picked fruit from Larry and Nancy's citrus trees, we truly felt like pampered guests.
As complete and comfortable as the furnishings are inside, the star of this apartment is its patio. An amazing 180 degree view of the dramatic Malibu coast awaits guests. We enjoyed our morning tea on the two-seat bar and barstools, enjoying the sunrise, then watching for whales along the shore. The view of the ocean is almost rivaled by the property’s lush landscaping.
Our hosts were quick to answer any questions prior to arrival, and checked us in promptly, but allowed us our space thereafter. We were very happy with our visit and would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing visit to Malibu.
Great place to relax with amazing views
We recently stayed at Deja Bu for 4 nights and had a great experience. Everything is as pictured and very clean. The location is close to everything in the Malibu area and traffic to/from LAX was not an issue. The owner conducted a tour when we arrived and gave us tips for whale watching. The beds were comfortable and grounds had MANY native plants. The location is great, priced reasonably and had a great balcony for watching and listening to the ocean. Larry and Nancy, the owners were very easy to talk to and we never had any issues. If we plan future trips to the Malibu area, we will definitely book with them again.
Awesome view, friendly, flexible & affable hosts
Stayed here for a few days just after New Year in January 2018. Larry and Nancy were very friendly and welcoming. Prior to our arrival, Larry communicated quickly and effectively to confirm our booking and at short notice was flexible about us extending our stay by a day.
The property is perfectly equipped for a short stay, the bed is comfortable and there are plenty of towels and linens etc. The property is above the pacific highway and you can hear the traffic but it completely dies down at night, so sleeping with the windows and doors open is not a problem. You can hear the ocean from the apartment and it's a great way to be lulled to sleep!
It was good to have a few consumable supplies in the kitchen (seasonings, oil, tea, coffee, aluminum foil, cling film) along with some fresh fruit from the orchard! Although the property description makes it clear that a dishwasher isn't in the kitchen, we hadn't read it properly, so this was a bit of a disappointment for us.
There are a lot of restaurants within a short drive and the local grocery store is fabulous with freshly prepared meals if you don't feel like cooking for yourself. We had a very relaxing few days at Larry and Nancy's apartment in Malibu.
Wonderful location in Malibu
House is located is hills overlooking Western Malibu. Stunning views from apartment! Everything about the area helps you to relax and unwind. The hosts go out of their way to provide helpful information.
We hope to return!
We had a great stay in Malibu and the house was perfect. Larry and Nancy were wonderful to work with and gave us great advice about places to go and see. The view from the patio was spectacular! We would love to come back and watch the whales migrating!
