About the Owner

Born and raised in France, business brought me to Manhattan 1979, and I relocated to Malibu in 1994. I bought this house in 1995 and completely remodeled it, blending the style of the South of France, where I'm from, with the unique original Malibu style. In 2007. We moved to Los Angeles in 2007 and have been renting out the Malibu house year-round ever since. We have welcomed guests from all around the world, and received only positive testimonials- more than 200 of them in our guest book.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to personally thank you for sharing your amazing home with us. What a wonderful thing to share such a very beautiful place.?

The views are spectacular and we created wonderful photographs to capture and remember our time together as a family. I have an intense appreciation for design, and was impressed with the simple decor that only helps to enhance the backdrop. We came home refreshed from a place that we will forever remember. Thank you again?

This lovely home and cottage is exactly as described. The location could not be more perfect. We came with our family of 4 and my mother. It was so nice for my Mom to have her own quarters! We love food - not only did we find a stellar market 2 minutes away, but also a fresh seafood market and plenty of farm to table restaurants. Our children are young, so the park just behind the grocery could not have been more convenient. The house is completely equipped with all your needs and sunsets while hot tubing were a dream. We will definitely be back.

We flew in from Fort Lauderdale to spend a week in Malibu with our son, who is a student at UCLA. The house is in a very exclusive and desirable area of Malibu. It overlooks Broad Beach where there is a 4 mile public sandy beach, and where many celebrities have homes like Stephen Spielberg, Julia Roberts and many others. Our younger son went to surfing school each morning and our daughter went horseback riding nearby. We spent a lot of time just enjoying being in this home. Having meals on the patio overlooking the ocean, sitting in the spa, exercising in the gym (4 great machines). Our daughter enjoyed having the guesthouse to herself, and we enjoyed having the main house with the sounds and views of the ocean. On the last evening, we had a wonderful barbeque with 25 guests from the Los Angeles area. They were all very impressed with the house. We love this place and already plan to come back next year for our son’s graduation.

This was our first trip to California—We live in Berlin, Germany. From the terrace, we saw dolphins almost every morning, and whales, four times in a week. The house sits behind gates and is very private and safe. We felt comfortable letting our two children run free without constant supervision. And there is plenty of private parking space behind the gates, maybe enough for 10 cars. So when we had a small social evening, everyone was able to park.
This house has a lot of style, it blends the best of old Malibu with Provence. The owner, who is from Provence, told us that he personally decorated this house and it shows. From the 19th century antique South of France mirror above the fireplace to the Malibu tile factory tiles around the fireplace and the reclaimed antique Mexican Saltillo tiles on the floor, this place looks as good as the houses in Architectural Digest. We noticed that Travel & Leisure magazine just did a feature article on this property (“Celebrity Houses You Can Rent”). This is a great place. We are leaving with wonderful memories and hope to be back.

Our dream home, great choice

  • 5 of 5
We rented this place to chill, after completing the production of a challenging documentary. This is a perfect home to rest, relax and regroup, invite friends over for drinks and a meal, and get your spirits uplifted. We slept so well the comfortable beds and the quietness at night—you can sleep with windows open and hear the ocean. The décor is charming and refined but still relaxing. The spa was a joy. We spent hours there every day. You can sit in it on one side in the morning and watch the sun rise over the ocean. And you can sit on the other side in the evening and you see the sun set over the ocean. What a place! Truly a little piece of paradise. The photos on HomeAway do not do justice, it truly is stunning.

One-of-a-kind, elegant home

  • 5 of 5
We have rented four houses in Malibu, since 2010. This one is the best that far. The other houses felt like rental properties, dull and anonymous. This one has character; it is also an elegant home where we were proud to entertain our friends from Los Angeles. And with two adjacent but separate buildings both with bedrooms on the same private land, our children had their independence, and we were together for meals.

Exceptional property, great value

  • 5 of 5
A great property. Mature trees, fabulous ocean views—much better than in the photos,
Beautiful furniture, elegant decoration and charming touches like the antique looking tile floors; felt like the South of France. The beds were very comfortable. There is a well-appointed gourmet kitchen, and elegant tableware for 8. We spent a lot of time on the terrace watching the dolphins, sipping drinks, hanging out in the spa, watching the most gorgeous ocean views you can have in Malibu. This is quite a place. And the rental fee was good value: one room with a queen size bed in the only nice hotel in Malibu was more than what it cost us to rent this three-bedroom house on 8 acres. We highly recommend it, and will be back.
