About the property

Luxurious Suite Retreat In The Malibu Hills

This spacious suite with private entrance and private bathroom, is more like a studio apartment with a queen bed and an incredibly comfortable king size pull out bed. The room has a keurig coffee maker, with starbucks coffee, toaster, microwave, kettle and a small refrigerator and sink. However the space does not have a kitchen, or cooking facilities.

It's the downstairs ground level in a custom home, designed and built by owner. Enjoy the feeling of being surrounded by handcrafted custom woodwork.

You are welcome to take a walk around the property and use the hammock & sitting areas under the trees. There is a private sitting area beside the pond outside your front door, that is just for our suite guests. Perfect spot for a morning coffee or an evening drink.

This is the ideal retreat for anyone who wants to get away and unwind, perfect for writers, surrounded by beauty and nature. We have a cottage spa, right here on the property. Book a facial or massage and soak in the peace and tranquility. We have a special for our airbnb guests for either our deluxe 1 hour massage that incorporates Swedish, acupressure and some deep tissue, tailored to your specific needs, or our 1 hour European facial. Before your treatment begins, we start by steeping your feet in a warm foot bath infused with rose petals, while you sit in an electric massage chair, to start your relaxation process. The treatments are $75 each. If you would like to book a reservation time, please let us know.

Large easy access parking.

Note* If the reservation is for two people, but you require the second bed (pull out couch) you need to request that when booking, so we can have it made up prior to your arrival.

Note* there is a extra charge for 3 & 4 person

*Note: Cell phone connection is VERY spotty in the canyons. You can use our land line as an emergency number.

Free Wifi connection is available.

Adults only, no children under 12, no pets.

Enjoy a walk around the property and a meditative stroll through the peace path, ending under the 300 year old oak, for peaceful meditation. Take a 2 min walk down the street to our neighbor, Arroyo Sequit State Park, for hiking & nature walks. Hike or bike on one of the many trailheads that start near by in the Santa Monica mountains, or go horseback riding at one of Malibu's horse riding facilities.

We are six miles up from Leo Carrillo beach and state park on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and approx. 8 miles to the 101 freeway, which is a gateway to many local Southern California sites.

For an additional price you can book massage and/or a facial, by Ali who is a licensed esthetician and massage therapist, at our cottage day spa, right here on the property. Please contact us to make a reservation.

We also handcraft, all natural, vegan "Malibu Pure" skincare line and handcrafted candles and soap products.

We live and work here on our property, so will often be around if you need anything, or questions answered.

Our home "Sequit Falls Ranch" is located within the Santa Monica mountains national recreation area (SMMNRA). There are many beautiful hiking/biking trails including the world famous Backbone Trail, we are a convenient overnight stop. We are located in the midst of the training routes for international cyclists, including training for the tour de France and other major cycling events.

About Gary & Ali Richardson

Gary bought the property 40 years ago, when it was all brush and chaparral. He bulldozed a driveway and designed, built and created every inch of the space.

We love living here and enjoy welcoming and meeting wonderful travelers from near and far.

Why Gary & Ali Richardson chose Malibu

This is a beautiful rural area and we live on the famous Mulholland scenic corridor. The Chumash Indians lived all through this area and you can sense the unique qualities and special feel.

What makes this studio unique

We are on 10 acres with lots of space to roam. We have a peace path that meanders through our oak grove and ends at a 300 year old oak, perfect to sit and relax or meditate. A pond and water feature outside your suite, perfect to sit beside for morning coffee or evening drink. Relax and read a book in the hammock or sit and relax under the tree,

surrounded by all the beauty of the canyons.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed this beautiful getaway. We felt so welcomed and really appreciated the little details. Personally, I was stunned at Gary's craftsmanship in building this jewel - stone by stone, board by board. From the 100' waterfall to the inlaid furniture and millwork, this guy is a true artist!!!

Stunning home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it time at Gary and Ali’s property! Ali was so gracious and kind when greeting us and showing us around, we really appreciated that. They surprised me with a wonderful birthday soap to take home, and it really personalized the whole experience for us! We will definitely be going back!

Magical

  • 5 of 5

What a charming suite! Indoors and out were just magical. From the bubbling brooks, to the tree swing and wind chimes. Ali met us upon check in. Everything was crisp, clean and inviting. No detail left undone from freshly ironed sheets to organic oj in the fridge for the morning. Ali was delightful and so pleasant and welcoming. I told her if we lived closer we could become good friends. This place will create lasting memories for you!

Lovely hand crafted suite in the Malibu canyon.

  • 4 of 5

Very personable hosts, and a beautiful suite up in the Malibu canyon - close to the Safari Wine tours and the Malibu Cafe. Stained glass windows, lots of lovely sitting areas outside. Just a little noisy air conditioner overnight - but otherwise, a very special location and place to stay.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

My Mom and I stayed here the night before my wedding ceremony. Gary and Ali were very easy to contact and the stay was amazing. The studio is very clean, there are wonderful soaps and lotions available, and the surroundings are stunning. They even went above and beyond and surprised me with personalized soaps labeled for my new husband and I. We will definitely be going back!
