About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)


Fantastic family or couples vacation retreat. You will feel right at home when you walk up the Spanish style steps to an open floor plan. Vaulted ceilings, hand painted tile surfaces, and sweeping mountain and ocean views throughout the house.

Truly relax in this casual, beachy, yet elegant atmosphere. Prepare to spend a magical stay of sun filled days and quiet starry nights. Enjoy a stroll on the famous Surfrider Beach as you watch world class surfers ride the waves. Rub shoulders with movie stars as you brunch at one of the many delightful restaurants found within walking distance from the beach.

More information: Upstairs, there is a large master suite with a private bathroom. Enjoy a good night's sleep in its comfortable king size bed, or take a nap on its cozy day bed that has a very comfortable trundle bed . The huge sundeck off the master suite is ideal for 'al fresco' dining, sunbathing, and watching the sunset as you sip a margarita or a glass of wine. Downstairs, the bedrooms share a charming colonial style bathroom. One guest room with its queensize bed is a romantic retreat with its own private deck and garden view. The children or another couple can share a room with a unique bunk bed that comfortably sleeps 3 (2 in the lower full size mattress and 1 on the upper twin). The kitchen has lots of counter space and a breakfast bar. The dining area has a deck, ideal for morning coffee or an afternoon hors d'oeuvre. Cozy up near the fireplace as you watch your favorite movies on a flat screen TV. The large natural rock, two level patio with tropical landscaping is perfect for outside dining

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know what a terrific time we have had at your house. On our arrival we were met by your friendly handyman who was doing some fixes to the kitchen faucet and water, but had everything turned on and ready to go in a few hours (and he was able to give us some good local food selections to visit during our stay).

I did want to let you know that we are leaving tomorrow (Wednesday June 5th) at 11am. I'll follow all the departing instructions before we leave. We were able to put the trash out on Monday but have more that will be left in the canisters that i'm sure will need to make it to the curb for next week's pick up (which I imagine your cleaning people will be able to do - because we don't want to leave it at the end of the driveway for that many days).

If there is anything else that I should know prior to leaving please let me know.

Again, thank you for the rental. Malibu was just beautiful.

Idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location; so close to beaches, shops, Malibu central, not to mention Santa Monica and L.A. The house was superbly located, and presented, with a fantastic array of equipment for guests. Tricia, the owner, kept in touch to make sure we had everything we needed - and we did. The house was exactly as advertised, perhaps even a little undersold!

There is an enormous amount if space un the hiuse, bedrooms are generously laid out, and main living space is really comfortable and homely.

We had the most fantastic time here, truly memorable, we will never forget our holiday in Malibu. The neighbours were all very friendly, and made us feel welcome throughout our stay.

The road up to the house offers incredible views, but it can be precarious so take it easy!

&We had a lovely time in this wonderful home. The energy is delicious - the views are great - the rooms are so cozy and inviting. Wonderful linens. Home is tastefully decorated. Tiles are fabulous!!! Excellent area to get together with family and eat and celebrate.

Great kitchen, all supplies to have a wonderful vacation are provided for the ultimate Malibu experience. Beautiful landscaping and flowers, very intimate and sensual as well.

So happy that we found this listing and were blessed with the opportunity to rent this house.

We are so grateful. We are so blessed.

Wishing you,

Not like the photos

  • 2 of 5

Clean and tidy in a beautiful setting but not like the photos. Great spot for 4 but we were 7 amd 3 ended up in a hotel because we were on top of each other. This house really needs renovation. I know they are costly but it’s stuck in the 70’s as kitchen and baths need updates. Furnishings are rather depressing. Homeowner is great. I cannot recommend it because of its size and it is not the photos at all. Cabinets need replacing all over. Floor like a Spanish villa but dark and glomy and it was not uplifting to come inside. The outside is where the beauty lies but it was really chilly to sit out here.

Great location, cool Spanish-style house, with beautiful views. Easy access to Pepperdine.

  • 4 of 5

We were here with 6 other adults to memorialize a friend at Pepperdine. This house was easy to access, and only 10 minutes from campus. While this house mostly suited our needs, I definitely think it is better suited for a family, versus a group of adults due to the sleeping arrangements and open loft-style master (open to below). Tricia was fantastic and so sweet. She made the process easy was always extremely responsive and attentive, not to mention sensitive to our situation as we said final goodbyes to a friend. She's a great host. There is also a public hiking area at the bottom of the road, closeto PCH, which was beautiful, adding to the charm of the house.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is loved and in a great location just a few miles north of the Malibu Country Market which has high end reataurants and upscale clothing stores, hair and nails, banks, grocery.. The views were stunning from both decks. This 3 bedroom comfortably slept 8. The linens were quite cozy and the views from the master bedroom were memorable. I remember getting ready in the master bath and looking at the ocean from the right and behind me from the mirror I saw large mountain views! The owner is gracious and stayed in touch the entire trip.. Not that we needed anything but she was very nice. Everything you need is included with this home and the curvy mountain drive to the home has views that you don't want to miss.. There are scenic stops up the hills and trust me when I say you should rent this home.. I may have just given away my best kept secret!

Pepperdine Graduation

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter graduated from Pepperdine in Malibu and we were flying in for the ceremony from Rhode Island. Since there would be 6 of us, we wanted to rent a house in order to be together comfortably during the weekend.

This home is just lovely, in a little Neighborhood with a stunning view of the area. Clean, roomy, affordable, in a great location, we would have loved to have spent more time there. The owner is so easy to work with and very accommodating, we were very pleased with all correspondence and would love to go out again and spend more time there. Don't hesitate to enjoy the experience.
