Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is capacious. Every bedroom has a bathroom en suite, so it's as private or communal (in shared spaces) as everyone chooses. Beds are comfortable. The beach is a 12 minute walk away, and perhaps a fifteen minute walk back (uphill). We found nothing that needed repair. Everything was wonderful, including the weather, although I'm not entirely certain that the property owners can take credit for "72 and sunny"! The only thing about which to complain is that there was nothing about which to complain. We, as an extended family, had a blast! We'd be thrilled to repeat, which is the highest praise I can offer.

Celebration of Life and Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered at this property to celebrate our father (and grandfather's) life. We came from all over the country - some of us hadn't seen each other (or in a couple cases some hadn't ever met). We were 10 adults and 3 children.

This unique and incredible property allowed us to each have space to ourselves and lots of places to join together in whatever groups popped up.

This is a castle that will give any gathering a spark of distinction. It was hard to pack up and leave.

The amenities were incredible, the kitchen is large and we made good use of it. If is roomy enough for several people to be active in it. Each bedroom is unique and everyone was quite comfortable, everyone was happy - especially my niece who loved all the mirrors in the bathroom ensuite to her bedroom.

The furniture is cozy and comfortable and it only took moments for each of us to find our special niches to hang out in. It was like being home, just a bit grander.

We also held an modest sized event to celebrate my father and brother who we lost sadly and recently. The place was gorgeous and everyone was very impressed. We were able to seamlessly have valet parking on grounds and the caterers found it easy to set-up, serve and clean up. The guests loved it and said we did our dad proud by holding the event in such a way. There were a lot of tears, but laughter too.

This property is also very convenient - we were able to go back and forth to the local supermarket with ease. My family loved walking, running and hiking on both the beach and nearby park trails. Easy access from LAX as well. Despite being 4th of July weekend, we were spared traffic issues and it was quiet and private.

We were treated to a fabulous fireworks show set off from the Bel Air Bay Club as if we ordered it up ourselves - and this was special because our family home from before was a site of annual 4th of July fireworks parties for many years. I think that this was very moving for my family (especially because it was on the 3rd and not the 4th of July - or we wouldn't have seen it. It was an extra special sign).

It was a very healing time, a precious time - it will not be forgotten.

Dream Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Tramonto provided us the perfect space for our dream wedding, and we wish that we could be leaving a six- or seven-star review for this venue! We met with Vince more than one year before our wedding, and he was unbelievably warm and accommodating throughout the planning process. On multiple occasions he allowed us entry to the Villa for walkthroughs with vendors, and he even worked at the last minute to make repairs to the property before our wedding after previous guests left the house damaged. If you're thinking of holding a wedding, retreat, or family event in a gorgeous location with plenty of space and breathtaking ocean views, look no further than here!

Five stars is really not enough to describe our wonderful experience at the Villa Tramonto.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Malibu, Pacific Palisades area and the Villa Tramonto exceeded our expectations in helping make our trip a most memorable one. The villa is a well-appointed gated estate that was obviously built with an incredible amount of loving care. It is set within well-manicured landscaping and has a very large rear patio area that was a perfect for our outdoor entertaining. It has a well-stocked kitchen with most every kind of appliance and many different kinds of stainless steel cooking ware. There is tableware, glassware and silverware service for at least 40. The owners were easily available on call to answer our questions and provide local recommendations to ensure that our holiday was perfect. Five stars is really not enough to describe our family's wonderful experience at the Villa Tramonto.
