Stunning private modern space with unbelievable views.
*** No parties/events/visitors without host's written permission ***
There is no other place in Malibu with views like this -from the lights of Santa Monica in east to the Channel Islands in west. Just look at the pictures. Romantic and private with a great kitchen.
It's one large space suitable for 2 people (plus young kids). Beds for max 4 people who are good friends. Just look at the pictures and think of "one large space".
It's all about the views. The space is one big bright room (about 1000 sqft/90 m**2), with large windows to south and east. The view is 180 degrees -Santa Monica to east, Channel Islands to the west. You'll see Palos Verdes peninsula, Santa Catalina Island, Channel Islands. On a very clear day you see Santa Barbara Island 40 miles south, San Nicolas Island 66 miles SW, and even San Clemente Island 71 miles away.
There is TV with 400+- channels. There are no music players or loudspeakers.
You have very fast WiFi access (50 mbps up/down). There's a Wi-Fi ink-jet printer.
No parties/events/visitors without my written permission.
Note: no visitors without my written permission. No parties without my written permission. It is a very quiet neighborhood. I want to keep it that way.
You have access to this space as well as to the outside decks. There is a gas grill outside. You are also free to use the washer and dryer without charge. Professional Wolf 6-burner stove with oven. Toaster oven, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge with freezer
You also get my famous well-liked (many of my guests seem to like it) printed guide (you'll get it also via email when book) to the apartment and Malibu which lists restaurants, groceries what to see and so on. It is guaranteed not to get ever approved by the Malibu Chamber of Commerce.
Interaction with Guests
Your visit is your private visit. I am pretty much available to help and assist you if you need something -text messaging me is the best way to get hold of me.
The neighborhood is rural residential -tranquil and quiet. We are at 700+ ft / 230m elevation. Environmental noise pollution consist mainly of the surf at Zuma Beach and coyotes howling in the night. One sees coyotes a few times every week -and you may see skunks and raccoons and tons of squirrels on the yard.
You need your own transportation. There is no reasonable public transportation -the is USA after all. One bus (534) goes to Santa Monica every half and hour or so in daylight hours.
Other Things to Note
This is my bohemian home -you will find my books and magazines on the shelves, my stuff in drawers etc. Don't expect a sterile hotel room. Do not panic if you find cartoons on my fridge door.

About Heikki Ketola
I am a Finn who happens to be living in Malibu since over 20 years. I speak pretty fluent English, German and Finnish plus I read fluently Swedish -my spoken Swedish sucks.
Heikki Ketola purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Heikki Ketola chose Western Malibu
The spectacular ocean and beach view. Modern design. Lots of amenities as you would expect. You just do not expect the view. It's about the most spectacular view in Malibu.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view. Clean light airy design of the apartment. It has all the usual high end amenities you would expect -full size fridge, gas stove with oven, high-end toaster oven, Vitamax blender, Weber gas grill outside. No marble counter tops though.

Shangri La in Malibu? Hell yes!
This was our first VRBO and couldn't have picked a more beautiful place! The apartment, sitting at the top of Malibu hills, is open, spacious, airy and bright with million dollar views. The location is very peaceful, private and quiet, perfect for decompressing and finding your inner bliss.
We spent a lot of time just sitting on the expansive deck and taking in the amazing views of the Pacific. At night, we'd sit on the deck listening to the ocean waves, owl hoots and (sometimes) coyote yips. One evening, we watched a fog bank roll in off the ocean, a truly amazing sight.
The owner is very gracious and accessible, but also respects your privacy. It's been ages since we've been able to relax like we did here. We will definitely be back for another visit. Thank you, Heikki!
OMG! I really enjoyed staying at this amazing castaway! I'm a city girl so this amazing home was a great getaway! I wished we could have stayed longer! the view was amazing! I loved every minute of it! Thank you Heikki for everything, your awesome!
The perfect getaway!
This vacation rental is absolutely wonderful! Everything from the view, to the interior design, to the hilarious (yet informative) custom-written Malibu Guide... it's nothing short of perfect. We can't wait to visit again! Thanks Heikki!
Amazing getaway from the city, very private
Nice open floor plan, deck is a huge plus, views are beautiful and sweeping, location in hills adds to the vacation.
A very relaxing stay
The apartment was everything we hoped for, quiet with a breathtaking view. Heikki was a great host. He greeted us upon arrival and answered all of our questions. His information package was very informative and humorous, do expect to chuckle at least a few times :). My husband and I were both very pleased with our stay. Again, that view....!!! Thanks again for sharing this beautiful space, Heikki!
Twee, you both are great guests -considerate, very easy to communicate with, clean, quiet and you took excellent cate of your apartment. I'd love to see you both here back again.
This home had everything we needed -- a very well-appointed kitchen, lots of space and seating -- it was so easy to make ourselves comfortable and relax, enjoy the view. It was so quiet and exactly what we needed. We are definitely going to be coming back here!
