Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4, Ocean Views from every room!

Love the ‘Bu (Malibu to locals) like we do. This charming 1 bedroom/1 bath guest apartment boasts a private ocean-view patio, private entrance, full kitchen, washer/dryer and fully tiled floors. Located on a quiet street approximately 2 minutes from the beach, the beautiful blue Pacific fills the expansive window views from both the living/dining room and the bedroom. In fact, you’ll never get tired of viewing the beguiling and ever-changing ocean from the queen-sized bed. On a clear day, you can see several of the Channel Islands including Catalina, and if you’re lucky you might even spy a whale and her calf on their way north from Mexico.

Within minutes of Malibu’s gorgeous beaches including world-famous Zuma Beach, Leo Carrillo Beach and Paradise Cove, and a plethora of hiking and mountain biking trails that join the Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains, this apartment is also just a short drive from Pepperdine University, the Malibu Pier, wineries, the world-renowned Getty Villa antiquities museum, and notable Malibu shops and restaurants. The apartment is also an excellent starting point for road bicyclists riding the scenic Pacific Coast Highway route to Point Mugu. For touring by car, it is approximately 45 minutes from Santa Monica and 75 minutes from Santa Barbara. Many of Los Angeles’ museums, including the famed Getty Center and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), are within a 60-minute drive.

But we’re still far enough from the city lights to offer views of starry nights, the milky way, moonglow on the ocean, and even the occasional night-time rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

About Larry Stokesberry

The guest apartment is the ground floor of a lovely Malibu home. When the owners (who live on the second floor) realized they didn’t need so much room for just the two of them, they decided to offer the lower level as a guest apartment. Both are avid tennis players, beach volleyball players and hikers, so they can point you in the right direction for a myriad of the wonderful outdoor activities Malibu has to offer.

Larry Stokesberry purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Larry Stokesberry chose Malibu

Romantic, serene, enchanting. I hope you can see why we love it!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for New Years Eve to get away from the cold, and it was everything we could have asked for and more. The Stokesberry's were incredibly nice and accommodating, and the made sure our stay was as comfortable as it could be. The view is stunning, the beach is just a short walk away, and the area has no noise level whatsoever. I would give six stars if I could!

Gracious hosts; amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time while in Malibu and our hosts, Larry and Nancy, were awesome! They met us upon arrival and provided a tour of the property to get us settled in. The property itself is absolutely charming and had wonderful views of the squid boats at night. We felt right at home and absolutely safe. Although the unit is directly below the main living quarters, the apartment offers total privacy. Our only regret is not booking our stay for longer; we just didn't give ourselves enough time to explore Malibu and the surrounding area - and that's our excuse to make a trip back! Thank you, Larry and Nancy, for the wonderful experience on our first time in Southern California!

Wonderful stay/Amazing ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my parents before traveling to Santa Barbara last weekend. Larry and Nancy provided a cozy stay for us. They're beautiful home offers full amenities and a stunning view perched atop the Malibu hillside. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Malibu.

Relaxing stay at Deja Bu

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Deja Bu! So relaxing...Larry & Nancy's apartment was perfect for our stay in Malibu. The views were amazing! We loved the local market, combined with the well stocked kitchen, we ate in for breakfast & dinner to relax & soak in the scenery. Perfect!
