About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)


Fantastic family or couples vacation retreat. You will feel right at home when you walk up the Spanish style steps to an open floor plan. Vaulted ceilings, hand painted tile surfaces, and sweeping mountain and ocean views throughout the house.

Truly relax in this casual, beachy, yet elegant atmosphere. Prepare to spend a magical stay of sun filled days and quiet starry nights. Enjoy a stroll on the famous Surfrider Beach as you watch world class surfers ride the waves. Rub shoulders with movie stars as you brunch at one of the many delightful restaurants found within walking distance from the beach.

More information: Upstairs, there is a large master suite with a private bathroom. Enjoy a good night's sleep in its comfortable king size bed, or take a nap on its cozy day bed that has a very comfortable trundle bed . The huge sundeck off the master suite is ideal for 'al fresco' dining, sunbathing, and watching the sunset as you sip a margarita or a glass of wine. Downstairs, the bedrooms share a charming colonial style bathroom. One guest room with its queensize bed is a romantic retreat with its own private deck and garden view. The children or another couple can share a room with a unique bunk bed that comfortably sleeps 3 (2 in the lower full size mattress and 1 on the upper twin). The kitchen has lots of counter space and a breakfast bar. The dining area has a deck, ideal for morning coffee or an afternoon hors d'oeuvre. Cozy up near the fireplace as you watch your favorite movies on a flat screen TV. The large natural rock, two level patio with tropical landscaping is perfect for outside dining

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know what a terrific time we have had at your house. On our arrival we were met by your friendly handyman who was doing some fixes to the kitchen faucet and water, but had everything turned on and ready to go in a few hours (and he was able to give us some good local food selections to visit during our stay).

I did want to let you know that we are leaving tomorrow (Wednesday June 5th) at 11am. I'll follow all the departing instructions before we leave. We were able to put the trash out on Monday but have more that will be left in the canisters that i'm sure will need to make it to the curb for next week's pick up (which I imagine your cleaning people will be able to do - because we don't want to leave it at the end of the driveway for that many days).

If there is anything else that I should know prior to leaving please let me know.

Again, thank you for the rental. Malibu was just beautiful.

Idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location; so close to beaches, shops, Malibu central, not to mention Santa Monica and L.A. The house was superbly located, and presented, with a fantastic array of equipment for guests. Tricia, the owner, kept in touch to make sure we had everything we needed - and we did. The house was exactly as advertised, perhaps even a little undersold!

There is an enormous amount if space un the hiuse, bedrooms are generously laid out, and main living space is really comfortable and homely.

We had the most fantastic time here, truly memorable, we will never forget our holiday in Malibu. The neighbours were all very friendly, and made us feel welcome throughout our stay.

The road up to the house offers incredible views, but it can be precarious so take it easy!

Great kitchen, all supplies to have a wonderful vacation are provided for the ultimate Malibu experience. Beautiful landscaping and flowers, very intimate and sensual as well.

So happy that we found this listing and were blessed with the opportunity to rent this house.

We are so grateful. We are so blessed.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is loved and in a great location just a few miles north of the Malibu Country Market which has high end reataurants and upscale clothing stores, hair and nails, banks, grocery.. The views were stunning from both decks. This 3 bedroom comfortably slept 8. The linens were quite cozy and the views from the master bedroom were memorable. I remember getting ready in the master bath and looking at the ocean from the right and behind me from the mirror I saw large mountain views! The owner is gracious and stayed in touch the entire trip.. Not that we needed anything but she was very nice. Everything you need is included with this home and the curvy mountain drive to the home has views that you don't want to miss.. There are scenic stops up the hills and trust me when I say you should rent this home.. I may have just given away my best kept secret!

Pepperdine Graduation

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter graduated from Pepperdine in Malibu and we were flying in for the ceremony from Rhode Island. Since there would be 6 of us, we wanted to rent a house in order to be together comfortably during the weekend.

This home is just lovely, in a little Neighborhood with a stunning view of the area. Clean, roomy, affordable, in a great location, we would have loved to have spent more time there. The owner is so easy to work with and very accommodating, we were very pleased with all correspondence and would love to go out again and spend more time there. Don't hesitate to enjoy the experience.

Perfect Family Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 (2 adults and 5 children 8 and under) went for a vacation at this wonderful home. We had the best time and felt completely at home and comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and spread out. The kids loved playing outside in the yard and we were just a short drive away from amazing beaches, restaurants and grocery store. The view was breath taking. I look forward to the next time we can take a family beach vacation because we will definitely book this home.

Great getaway, up windy road with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for a birthday getaway! Owner was most helpful as the surprise was planned. The patio on the side of the house was perfect for a lovely wine n food pairing with a sommelier and special guests---sunset views, quiet street, and easy access to a great kitchen as all was coordinated throughout the evening. We also enjoyed the deck for many meals, plus the bed linens were wonderful. Highly recommend this because of its location, also---easy to explore Malibu north or south but as you climb the hill, you are in another world.
