About Leslie Gail

I'm a fun passionate and exciting woman who loves adventure. I enjoy traveling to new destinations and meeting new people, my neighbor calls me a pioneer. I'm passionate about every thing I do. I'm a very gracious host and I love to entertain and make my guests feel at home. Some of my favorite books are 'Sidhartha',' Mists of Avalon', 'Modoc' and 'Women who run with the Wolves'. Actually I use to have 3 wolves and was known as the Wolf Woman of Malibu. I AM a woman who runs with the wolves!. I've lived in London, Paris, Milan, NYC, Toronto, LA and now Malibu and have traveled all over the world. I have to say I was happiest in Italy and fell in love with Portafino ...loved the cave with the elevator soooo James Bond!!!!!

Some of my favorite movies are Matrix, The Gladiator, Truly Madly Deeply and of course Dances with Wolves...dah!!! I LOVE ALL MUSIC... the language of the soul and healthy organic food. Love hanging with friends dancing and YOGA!!! Life is a roller coaster, the bigger the life the wilder the ride...YEEEEEHAAAAAAAA!!!

Why Leslie Gail chose Malibu

It was love at first sight!!!! When I first came to LA I walked up Benedict Canyon and fell in love with being on top of the mountain. I decided in that moment that's where I wanted to live. Shortly there after I was invited to this property and fell in love instantly as though I'd come home. There wasn't a finished house at the time but I had a vision of what it was going to look like finished and have been working on it ever since. Getting this property wasn't easy however it was meant to be as it is now mine. It's a loooooong story, perhaps I'll tell you when you come to visit..

What makes this cottage unique

The views here are breathtaking! You have 360 views and no matter how many times I see this view it takes my breath away! The views are rivaled only by the sunsets which are the real treasures of this earth! You will not be disappointed!!

Beautiful setting, fantastic water!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. The water and environment was a perfect place to rest and gather good energy. Leslie was available as needed and helpful in many ways. The home was bigger than the pictures could convey and the space felt great indoors and out. Fyi: propane for heating the pool and spa is extra.

Very fine and upscale!

  • 5 of 5

Leslie's place is an exquisite aerie,

a world apart that creates its own atmosphere -- aerated by an ozone water filtration system that uses no chlorine in the enormous swimming pool (the mechanics of its

eco-engineering artfully hidden like a stage set).

We we were there in March, so we learned to love the bracing cold water invigorating our systems as we immersed ourselves with delight!

(Of course the pool would be warm in the summer.)

Although the interior of the house has no table designed for eating,

outdoors the long wooden dining table, in dappled shade, looks out at a view that rivals Tuscan splendor in its beauty. Vineyards spill out along the hillsides, bulbous mountain crags divulge unforgettable sunset silhouettes, and

Da Vincian blue hills in the distance rest your eyes and refresh your spirits. Leslie's eagle eye for perfection makes sure that nothing is out of place and nothing goes amiss. All in all, a marvelous refuge from your cares in this harried world.

Outdoor Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two little girls, 3 1/2 and 10 months for a week. Although we were visiting family and did some sightseeing in Santa Monica and Santa Barbara, we never really wanted to leave Malibu or our cottage. This place is magical! The grounds are gorgeous and have a huge chemical-free pool with a hot tub and water slide. You are surrounded by mountains 360 degrees around you and the landscaping is beautiful and well-maintained. We literally spent the majority of our time outside. All of us took baths in the outside tub which was quite glorious! The outdoor grill worked well and we enjoyed all of our meals outside. The inside of the cottage is exquisitely decorated with exotic items from all over the world. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for cooking and serving - pots, pans, glassware, coffee pot, etc... Beds were comfortable and clean. All of the household products in this house are free of chemicals. There are essential oils and wonderful beauty products to try as well, which mama enjoyed. Also many great books to read. The owner is very helpful and even took me to the grocery store to help me stock the villa with food. The only negatives I could possibly think of is that the owner is building a beautiful new house very close to the pool area, the charge for propane to heat the pool is an extra cost, and the laundry equipment is pretty small. Otherwise, this home is HEAVEN! Highly recommend!!!

Car: necessary

Since we are located in the Malibu Wine Trail it would be a good idea to visit some of the vineyards and sample their wines i.e. WINE TASTING!!

1. Malibu Wines is across the street however you should go to their wine tasting bar located at 31740 Mullholland HWY approx 2 mins drive from the house, easily walkable. They also have the Malibu wines Safari call 818-497-2206

2. Cielo Wines is my neighbor behind the house. You have to belong to their private club to go to the Barn which is their wine tasting room right behind my home. However their public wine tasting bar is called SIP Malibu Grapes located at 2598 Sierra Creek Rd Agoura Hills. This is approx 3 minutes drive from the house.

3. Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate Vineyard located at 340 Kanan RD Malibu approx 2 mins drive from the house.

4. Rosenthal Estate Wines which is also about 3 minutes from the house, however their wine tasting bar is located at 18741 PCH Malibu with nice ocean views!!

5. Colcanyon Estate Wines located at 2371 Latigo Canyon Malibu.

Other wine tasting bars in the area are...

Kristy's Malibu 6506 Westward beach rd

Cornell Winery and Tasting Room located at 29975 Mullholland Highway approx 3 minutes from the house.

The Old Place next door to Cornell which is a fabulous place to eat as well also 3 mins

Malibu Family Wines located at 28001 Dorothy Dr Agoura Hills.

THE BEACH for all you sun and sand lovers is approx 7-10 mins from the house depending on traffic.

There you can boat, sail, jet ski, surf, paddle board, canoe, swim, body surf, wound surf, kite surf and more........You can also have lessons if you wish.

HORSEBACK RIDING!! Since you'll be in horse country a great way to see the mountains is on horse back.

There are some great camps in the area for children as well.

There is a great state of the art gym across the street at Calamigos Ranch for the 'BIGGEST LOOSER' series if you like to work out as well as private yoga lessons at the home can be arranged.

Hiking is BIG around here and there are many trails to choose from as well a dirt biking!
