About the Property

Malibu Mountain Retreat Just Minutes From The Beach

Enjoy pristine mountain views from this lovely 3 bed, 2 1/2 bath home nestled in the mountains of Malibu on a quiet street. Light, bright and beautifully maintained with hardwood floors and a fabulous indoor/outdoor flow. Enjoy peaceful canyon living from one of the two decks. See nature at its best, then, hike, swim, walk, read, cook, shop and relax! Just 7 minutes to beach!

There is no better place in Malibu to enjoy the nature you see from this upper deck, enjoying the sunset, drinking a glass of white wine, and cooking fresh fish on the gas grill.

There are two living areas, one where you can play the piano or enjoy a good read away from the TV and a large family room where you can watch your favorite movies on a flat screen TV; Blu-Ray player connected to TV. There are also books to read as you relax in this serene setting.

The open floor plan allows people in the kitchen, living and dining areas to stay connected. Many windows bring in natural light. Comfortable furnishings & uncluttered living space. Indoor dining seat 8. Kitchen is fully equipped to cook and bake. Includes Wi-Fi and house phone with unlimited calling in the U.S.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and full en suite bathroom. Large sliding glass doors provide easy access to the upper deck for sunning and viewing.

Each of the other two bedrooms has a queen bed with an additional queen-size futon that fills each loft.

Carport with room for 2 cars.

Play on the beach with our boogie boards and sand toys using our beach umbrella, chairs, cooler and beach towels.

We have compiled a House Book with local information on where to buy groceries, rent bicycles, best beaches and hikes. We also have local guidebooks.

Our home’s greatest asset is the location – close to the beach but away from the traffic on Pacific Coast Highway and summer crowds. 25 miles from LAX airport, easy access to Santa Monica, Hollywood and other LA landmarks with Disneyland 60 miles away. The interior of the home is light and bright. We hope you find our mountain home the ideal springboard for your discoveries and adventures in Southern California.

The winding 3 mile drive up to our home from the beach has spectacular views of the Santa Monica Bay and surrounding mountains. Once you are arrive, you are in the tranquility of the mountains.

Under 25 welcome with restrictions.

Owner info

About the owner: We have lived and worked in Malibu for 28 years raising our two daughters here. We love this area of Malibu because of the location, in the mountains but close to the beach as well as the museums, restaurants, and night life of Los Angeles.

Why the Owner Chose Malibu, CA, USA:
We bought this house because of the natural beauty of the area as well as the quietness and serenity of the neighborhood. We love the close access to trails for mountain biking and hiking as well as its proximity to the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are many windows in the house, light hardwood floors in kitchen and living area and indoor/outdoor flow leading to multiple decks make it the perfect mountain escape with close access to the beaches and restaurants of Malibu.
