Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Malibu Canyon - Calabasas-Malibu Adjacent

Three Bdrms. + Office, Two Baths, Lg. Open-concept Living Room, Landscaped Yard

Calabasas Hills family home available for your next Southern California vacation. In the neighborhood made famous by the Kardashians and Biggest Loser TV shows as well as celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Beau Bridges and Justin Bieber. Why do hot, young, rich and famous people live in Calabasas and neighboring Hidden Hills? Here's how former Hidden Hills mayor (and producer/entertainment lawyer), David Stanley describes the appeal: "We have no sidewalks or street lights. People are out walking, the kids gather at the community center to swim and BBQ, and once a year we put on a parade to celebrate the founding of our city -- marching bands and all."

Our home is newly available again after a log-term tenant vacated the property just a month ago. We have updated the furnishings, landscaped the yard, completed the necessary repairs and purchased new "heavenly" beds & linens.

About Greenman

We are a professional couple that raised our now-adult children in this home and have lived in two cities for the past four years. We travel to and from LA frequently and thus we use the vacation rental opportunity to minimize the cost of maintaining two residences.

Greenman purchased this house in 2000

Why Greenman chose Calabasas

Comfort and location are the key reasons. We live in our rental properties when they are not rented. Therefore they are furnished for maximum comfort and practical use. There are good kitchen supplies, heavenly bedding and flat-screen TVs with Netflix, Amazon Prime and other local offerings. Our home in Calabasas is on an elevated street with a lovely view of the surrounding green hills of the Santa Monica Mountains. Wonderful hiking trails surround us and we are less than 10 miles to the beautiful beaches of Malibu. We are also a short drive away from first class dining and shopping as well as several large cinemas including one that offers full-service dining during your show!

What makes this house unique

The home is less than a mile from a major highway, making it easy to get everywhere within LA County. Yet it is located in a quiet suburb of family homes and city parks with few crowds and inconveniences of the big city. The home is furnished for our comfort as we use it when not rented and priced to be much less expensive than claustrophobic hotel rooms, especially when there are multiple couples or a family traveling together. Street and driveway parking for two vehicles are always available. A lovely yard was newly landscaped and a barbecue and elevated view of the Santa Monica Mountains are highlights that you will surely enjoy. In addition the interior is completely pet friendly including a doggie door to the enclosed yard suitable for your small pet.

Perfect Home Base for Multi-Family Gathering

  • 4 of 5

This home was the perfect home base for 6 of my family members to gather while we were in CA for a family wedding. The wedding was in Malibu and we had other family in Topenga. The home was perfectly situated between the two. It was a fairly inexpensive Uber ride to the wedding festivities. We took advantage of the kitchen cooking facilities as well as the backyard grill. We enjoyed the back porch area where we spent mornings and evenings hanging out together taking in the lovely CA weather. The sleeping accommodations were very comfortable. It would have slept 2 additional people if needed. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay in the Calabasas area.

Owner's Response: Thank you Toni for your great articulation about our vacay rental. When we started this we were not sure who wanted to come to our area which is mainly a neighborhood of family homes close to a freeway... But it seems your use is exactly why it rents often. There is generally a family event nearby (we have many close event venues) and there is extended family attending that wants to have some shared space to catch up with each other. It really is a great use for this home which is now much larger than the two of us need for ourselves. Curious to know what we might do to make this a 5-star review...if it's doable, we'd like to make it happen! Come again any time!

The house was lovely and we felt the beds were comfortable and the backyard was so peaceful. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kristen for this lovely review. Likewise we would definitely rent to you any time! You were a delightful guest and your communication was so helpful - especially since we were unable to greet you personally because of the late arrival time.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a wonderful 5 days at this location when we came to Malibu for our daughter's Pepperdine graduation. It worked out beautifully for the 5 of us! Loved the quiet neighborhood and excellent location. A trundle bed was put in the office for us so that everyone had their own room. Will definitely be back!

Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect place to come back to after hectic days in LA. Easy to get anywhere and very comfortable and convenient. The backyard and patio are heavenly. My only quibble is that it would have been nice to have some sort of sleeper/sofa or futon in the office to truly sleep eight. The beds are wonderful, though. Marla was a terrific hostess. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone.

Owner's Response: Celia: Thank you for your suggestion for the office. When we saw your air mattress in that room we thought that some sort of convertible bedding in there was a good idea! We loved hosting you and hope that you will visit our area again so that we might have the good fortune of a repeat rental.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was ok. Perfect Location. Close to freeway. The BBQ and garden are perfect. Nice view and trees. The two bathroom are a bit small for 6 adults. The showers are only for small people :).

Marla and David are excellent and very friendly. Always taking care of us.

I will take again this option if I we go back to LA.

Owner's Response: Esteban and family were delightful guests. In fact, they did more than was necessary when checking out. This was for a brother's wedding - three brothers from all over the world met and stayed at our home which was close to the wedding location. We were happy to provide a place that they could all catch up and be together. Yes, this was a family home for four - so I imagine six adults were a bit challenged in our two small bathrooms. But I think it was better and less expensive than a hotel. We would happily rent to Esteban or any of his family on any future visit to the LA area.

In a suburb of Los Angeles, Calabasas is serene and beautiful yet close enough to Los Angeles to have every convenience. Fine dining and shopping are within a few miles. Malibu beaches and Pepperdine University are a quick 10-minute drive over the canyon. Yet the immediate area is full of beautiful hikes and scenic drives away from the big city crowds and hustle. Our home has a lovely yard with above-ground Jacuzzi and it is close enough to the freeway to be a reasonable drive to all the Los Angeles has to offer. Most sites are within 30 minutes (Hollywood, Malibu, Santa Monica) and many others are less than 1 hour away (Disney parks, Downtown LA, Ventura, Santa Barbara).

1 mile from a major LA highway that gets you everywhere including Hollywood to the East, Ventura/Santa Barbara to the Northwest and Malibu just over the canyon (10 miles). Many beautiful hikes through the Santa Monica mountains all around the area. Old town Calabasas is both charming and well appointed for gourmet and casual dining, movies, shopping and entertainment. The famed Sagebrush Cantina is 3 miles from our home. This location is perfect for enjoying all that Southern California has to offer. Since you are so freeway close you can get almost anywhere in 30-45 minutes or less. At the same time, the quiet suburban area of Calabasas provides an away-from-it-all vibe and is not as congested as many LA neighborhoods have become.
