Surrounded by canyon park-lands, this brand-new yurt with luxury conveniences features one large circular room (24’ diameter) with a queen size bed in the sleeping loft, a full size sofa bed in the living room, and an additional queen airbed available as needed. There is a well-equipped kitchen and en-suite bathroom with shower. While retaining the circular structure and skylight of traditional yurts, this modern guest house has bamboo flooring, built-in walls, glass windows, heating, ceiling fan, WiFi (from 6 am - 11 pm) and satellite TV (no ppv movies/porn or fox news). It is tastefully decorated with southwest Navajo artifacts. This beautiful, brand-new yurt is available by the night, week or month. It sleeps 4 comfortably, and additional air beds are available. Neither pets nor children under the age of 7 are allowed. In this rustic retreat, you’ll enjoy the tranquility of sustainable living in the midst of our organic orchard and organic gardens watered with our own well. Just a little over a mile up a scenic canyon road from the pacific coast highway, our neighborhood is home to deer, coyotes, raccoons and hawks and just a few families. Floating above the coast, the property has amazing views of the canyon and the ocean beyond with limitless lookouts for sunrise, sunset, moonrise and star-gazing. Surrounded by our meyer lemon and avocado orchard, the yurt is adjacent to our organic vegetable gardens and free-range chicken coop.
In the morning, there is fresh brewed coffee en suite. Home-cooked organic meals featuring our own garden-fresh produce and local, organic or varietal wines can be arranged at a reasonable price. Committed to an ecological lifestyle, we alert guests to a few limitations. No loud music. No parties or non-paying guests unless cleared by the management. Smoking allowed outside only, on decks or patio - use ashtrays only. This is a highly flammable wildlife area.We also want to advise guests that this is a working orchard and vegetable garden. People uncomfortable with domestic animals (dogs, chickens, rooster) or scared by the sounds of wild animals (coyotes, owls, song birds) may prefer an urban location. Also, those who are very light sleepers should consider using earplugs if the possibility of sounds of coyotes, owls, rooster or dogs keep them awake. While we strive to avoid working around the yurt during early morning or late afternoon when guests like to relax, we will be tending the gardens, etc. During the day which many guests find fascinating.Whether you wish to retreat to nature or explore the surroundings, you have a wide choice of activities. Our canyons and beaches boast world-class mountain biking, hiking, horse-riding, wine-tasting, surfing and sunbathing. Nearby are local restaurants and hangouts while the towns of west lake village & thousand oaks are just 15 miles away to the north. There are hiking trails right out the yurt door which access Nicholas canyon park and lake as well as leo carillo state park. We can arrange horseback lessons and trail rides locally, as well as rental of surfboards, wet suits, and mountain bikes. Yoga, dance, pilates, acupuncture, massage, and gym usage can also be arranged. While secluded, we are easily accessible by major roads. A 3 minute drive down the canyon takes you to pacific coast highway’s most pristine beaches in southern California. It’s just a few more miles to beautiful Malibu town and pier with all lots of shopping, dining and recreational opportunities. A 12 minute drive in the other direction takes you to the Ventura freeway for easy access to Burbank. Downtown l.A., Disney land and beyond... Or heading north to Ventura, Santa Barbara, Pismo beach, and other sights on the way to San Francisco.Announcement: we're now part of EatWith, too!

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 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.
We're just 2 miles from Pacific Coast Highway and Malibu's most famous surf beaches and most secluded beaches. Hiking is just out the door in the Decker Canyon and state parks of Nicholas Flats and Charmlee are minutes away. Three great wine tasting sites in the midst of Malibu vineyards are just a few miles away in the other direction. Motoring is a joy here whether you choose to follow the beach road or drive Mulholland. And, don't forget to visit the Getty Villa!
