About Deidre

The Semler Family has owned Saddlerock Ranch for over 30 years.

Deidre purchased this house in 1983

Why Deidre chose Los Angeles area

Saddlerock Ranch back in the 80's grew Avocado's and while they still have Avocado Trees on the ranch, it mainly grows grapes which produce their own wines of Semler and Saddlerock Labels.

We offer Malibu Safari Tours, Malibu Wine Hikes and have a tasting room "Malibu Wines" right across the street.

This property is over 1,000 acres and has exotic animals throughout including the famous Stanley the Giraffe.

What makes this house unique

Our property is set amoungst the rolling hills of Malibu, and our backdrop is a horse ranch and vineyard. We set the perfect space for making memories in any way you desire, with only being a 15 minute drive from the beach and all Malibu has to offer seaside. You may also enjoy the local wine tasting within minutes of the property.

Wonderful house in an amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this magical house! It is surrounded by nature, art, vineyards, a quaint little lake, and even a little zoo in walking distance, with a friendly giraffe, zebras, camels and more.

The house is very comfortable, with a great Jacuzzi, a well equipped kitchen and grill, and everything was clean and well maintained.

We enjoyed the proximity to Malibu Cafe, the nearby scenic hikes, the proximity to Zuma beach.

The management was very responsive and we had a truly amazing experience!

Memorial Day Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend was perfect! The house was amazing: it was spacious, clean, and it had everything we needed for the weekend. The vineyard surrounding the house felt like a resort and there were amazing perks like free wine tasting, etc. It is not far from the beach (about 10 minutes) and it was great. The only things that were troublesome were that the house itself was somewhat hard to find and the hot tub was not working for the majority of our stay there. Other than that it was great! I would definitely recommend it to others.

Excellent Property, very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 families of 4, each with 2 boys, and so, this house was perfect for us. Paige was very helpful and prompt in making the reservations, as well as answering any questions we had. The vineyard is spectacular, and the house is very comfortable. We were able to use most of the amenities, including the grill for the 4th of July BBQ, washer/dryer(though there was no laundry detergent, we had to go buy) and the jacuzzi. We also got to see the animals inside the vineyard including zebras, camels, yaks, buffalos, llamas etc. It is also very close to the Semler vineyards, where we went wine tasting and listened to live music. The Malibu Cafe nearby also was very nice - the food, the lawn chess, outdoor pool table, giant jenga etc. We were close to the beach (Zuma beach was 15 min away), and even the one hour drive to Santa Monica beach was not bad, given it was the 4th of July weekend. All in all, a wonderful way to spend the long holiday.

A few things that could be improved:

- There was no hand soap in the bathrooms, and no trash liners in any of the trash bins.

- One of the bathrooms for the kids, is a bath-only, without a shower. This proved to be a bit of an inconvenience.

- It would be nice to stock the kitchen with some basic amenities such as salt, oil, sugar, coffee.

- The oven did not work for us at all.

Otherwise it was an excellent stay, I would highly recommend it.
