About Geraldine Gilliland

My name is Geraldine and I hail from Northern Ireland. I moved to America in 1975 with my backpack and $300 and I have never looked back. I live on the property in the Casa Grande so I am always there to assist guests with anything. There is also a full time property manager to assist with any little thing. I was nominated for Irishwoman of the Year by Ireland's Former President, Mary McAleese and I received my award on Saint Patrick's Day 2015 by the Irish Fair Foundation. It is such as great honor to be acknowledged by Mary McAleese.

Geraldine Gilliland purchased this estate in 1995

Why Geraldine Gilliland chose Los Angeles area

Total privacy and security yet only minutes to the nightlife in Malibu. There is always a movie star sighting around town and we have a huge celebrity population here. Pierce Brosnan, Roma Downy and Mark Burnett, Dick Van Dyke, Robert Downy Junior, Martin Sheen and Family are only a few names seen frequently around town.

Please note that we do not permit weddings at this property.

Beautiful property!

The property is as beautiful as described, the views are sublime, and the privacy is absolute. The owner and her property manager were responsive to our needs. We intend to return.

Breathtaking views, exquisite home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a seven night stay at this property. The property is nestled in a very striking canyon in Malibu with sweeping views of the ocean and surrounding mountains as well as some of the prettiest sunsets we have seen. We live in Greater LA and decided to skip the hassle of a flight to go on vacation this time and to find something close to home. It took us just over an hour to get here but it was a world away from the craziness of Los Angeles. The property is exactly as pictured. It was immaculately cared for inside and out. The owner had such nice touches including soap, shampoo, conditioner, feminine products and a basket of lotions and sunburn cream, just in case. The bed was fabulous. We have traveled a lot over the years and both my husband and I agreed it was the most comfortable bed we had slept in. The bedding and pillows were super luxurious. In the kitchen, all of the small appliances (blender, coffee maker, toaster, etc.) were all high quality and even the knives, dishes and pans were very nice. The only note is that there are a lot of stairs to get in and out of the house. However, the owner provided a golf cart to transport out luggage up and down for us. My husband had recently had knee surgery so it was a hike to get up to the car but still worth it to stay in such a nice place. Truly, a wonderful and restful vacation at an amazing property minutes from the beach.

Rancho Chiquita Casita Exceeds Expectations in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The photos & video tour do not do this incredible estate justice. The canyon & ocean views and landscaping are absolutely breathtaking! The casita is full of extra special touches... one of our favorites included the imprinted paw prints in the master bath tile floor. Everything from the furnishings and lux bedding to the amenities exceeded expectations.

The location is central to almost anything you'd want to do in and around Malibu. Loved the proximity to Pacific Coast Highway. The drive up Corral Canyon Road in the dark was intimidating at first; if at all possible, try to arrive during daylight hours so you can anticipate the steep, winding climb. Our GPS did not get us there (left off near a lookout point, just a couple of minutes down CCR), so be sure to follow the directions provided. The casita has good Wi-Fi, but cell service is spotty. Load the Viber app if you need to call or text back home; we found it was the perfect excuse to put the phone away!

We had the most amazing girls getaway at the Casita from 7/19/16-7/23/16. Our only regret was our delayed arrival because of a flight cancelation, and we are incredibly thankful to the owner, Geraldine, for accommodating our very late arrival. The welcome tray & wine were such a nice touch. We loved her rescue dogs and her professional staff. We will miss the sunrises, sunsets & enjoying the late night city lights after a playful day at the beach, at the pier or in the vineyard.

This is a very special place. Geraldine has truly created an amazing experience for her guests. We feel so blessed to be there and look forward to coming back!

Perfect Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do it justice. Great house, exceptional hostess/owner, incredible views, ultimate setting for relaxation and family fun. After living like a celebrity for 17 days, it may be tough to reacclamate. Memories that will last a lifetime.

Family Summer Vacation 2016

  • 4 of 5

A very different and interesting vacation experience for my wife and 3 granddaughters. For the adults, it was very beautiful at the ranch overlooking the pacific ocean and if not for the granddaughters would have been a very romantic vacation spot. Although the girls would prefer a hotel with a swimming pool with plenty of people coming and going, we believe the overall experience will be forever memorable. The initial drive up to and down from the ranch provided interesting climbs and turns which caused everyone to pay close attention to directions. After the third day it was jokes and laughs about how fast to travel up and down the curvy roads. To me, I think the home and location is breath taking and will be enjoyed by whoever stays there and will definitely leave a memorable impression.
