Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Western Malibu - Deja Bu

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps, 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, 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’s light pollution 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!

Property is good.

  • 4 of 5

Place was clean and adequate for our needs. View was very good and it was comfortable having breakfast outside. Only issue we had was location as it was not easy to get to, having to drive up the side of a mountain. Not being used to California, and PCH, this was a little annoying to us.

Owner's Response: We have spectacular views because of our elevation, but less than 1000 feet above sea level. What make Malibu special is the combination of the mountains and the sea. Pacific Coast Highway, on summer weekends near desirable beaches like we are, can be busy. But you definitely want to be near desirable beaches. Most people find our location very desirable., less than a 2-minute drive to the beach.

Deja Bu is a excellent place to stay!! Larry and Nancy are great hosts with SUPERIOR customer service! It is a beautiful location yet not to far from the beaches, Santa Monica Mountains and Pepperdine University. The description of the property(very cleaned and maintained) and area was very informative. I LOVE staying here as I felt safe while enjoying my first mom vacation by myself. Thank you for everything and I look forward to returning soon! I highly recommend Deja Bu!

Breathtaking Views, Truly Extraordinary - Everything One Could Want (and More!!!)

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words that could communicate how lovely this location is. I was taking my fiancé on a surprise trip down the coast of California. He loves Malibu and so I wanted to rent a house for him as our final destination. I have never done anything like this before - so I was a little skeptical. From the inception of our communications, the Stokesberrys were open, thorough and informative. They helped me to visualize the area and the situation at hand. They were extremely comforting and offered any kind of assistance necessary at the onset. During the trip - but before our arrival - we ran into some airline snafu and they were sympathetic to our plight, offering us solutions to an existing problem in an effort to make our vacation go as smoothly as possible. When we arrived at their house, we were greeted warmly and openly. Their property is spectacular! My fiancé was completely surprised and excited. In the rental apartment, the Stokesberrys supply everything (quite literally). They have not let one stone go unturned-- in any room! I wanted to cook dinner for my finance's birthday, and there was a lovely gourmet market nearby. We were set with all the kitchen needs - pots, pans, etc. It did not go unnoticed that there was even a child's cup and plate available( (we didn't need this - but one day!) The views really are beautiful and the apartment is warm and homey - truly the coveted "home away from home." But the selling point here are the Stokesberrys - offering everything one could possibly want in a pace to stay - thinking outside the box about things that the vacationer might need during the stay - even offering a book that explains all about the area and recommended restaurants and places to go! We were so moved by all the things that were left there that made our stay easier that we left a few things ourselves - cooking supplies for the next renter and some toiletries for the vacationer....as a way of paying it forward. In a world filled with people who cut corners and who are short on attention -- these folks prove to be one in a million. The experience was unbelievably amazing and we cannot wait to go back! Should you visit - we highly recommend El Matador state beach (a long walk down but so so worth it!), Sunset restaurant (beautiful, delicious and very accommodating), and walking down to the end of the driveway in the pitch darkness of the night. GOOD GOSH THOSE STARS ARE BRIGHT!! Gorgeous!! Much love & gratitude, Melissa & Adam

Great Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Deja Bu for three nights. It was quiet, cozy and beautiful. It felt like a home away from home. Mr. & Mrs. Stokesberry were very nice and accommodating. We highly recommend this place. This place is no more than three minutes from Zuma beach where we spent most of our time. There are restaurants all around, places to shop and the view is breathtaking.

Thank you Deja Bu!!

We will definitely be back.

Fantastic location, very close to beaches & a nice grocery store just down the street.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, neat, & all comforts of home. Larry & Nancy were very accommodating & could not have been nicer. Patio area was large & a nice location to relax. The bed was very comfortable & great views everywhere. If you keep the bedroom blinds open, the sunrise hits as you wake up. The best part for me was the canyon drives just 30 seconds from driveway. There are unbelievable canyon drives all over the place very close by & the best view just a mile away on a bluff overlooking the Point Dume curve I the ocean .
