About the owner: Bruce Schultz and Bibi Jordan are certified-organic growers while also being professional Director of Photography and Travel Writer respectively. Having traveled the world, they welcome travelers into their Malibu home just 2 miles from Malibu's best beaches. Unabashed 'foodies', they enjoy meeting guests over gourmet home-cooked organic 'farm-to-table' meals served on the rooftop ocean-view sun-deck or in the Monet-inspired dining room.
Why the Owner Chose Western Malibu, Malibu, CA, USA:
Here's a chance to experience a super-chic Yurt on a sustainable, organic farm. Just 2 miles from Malibu's most secluded beaches and best surf spots and with hiking trails through pristine parkland right outside the door, you are surrounded by nature but just minutes away from city-life. The town center of either Malibu or Westlake/Thousand Oaks is just 20 minutes away. Santa Monica is 35 minutes away and LAX or Hollywood just another 25 minutes more. In the other direction, Santa Barbara and Ojai are just 90 minutes away. But, most of all you'll want to simple enjoy the peace and tranquility of this serene escape from city life.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The Yurt is a unique structure and the Malibu Yurt is extra special as it has insulated walls, a bamboo floor, a modern bathroom and kitchen, WiFi and a laptop and much more. In the summer you'll enjoy the pool, but all year long you'll enjoy our wonderful soft chemical-free well water. Everything here is prepared with old-fashioned care - you'll smell the sunshine in the sheets and taste the love in the home-cooked organic meals. In fact, you're highly unlikely to ever find a more affordable and delicious all-organic meal cooked just for you from basic ingredients, many like out fresh eggs and organic vegetables, collected from the garden just hours before you eat. A rare LA-native, Bruce knows the area inside out and both Bruce and Bibi excel at giving tips to tailor a dream trip just for you.
