About the Owner

Born and raised in France, business brought me to Manhattain 1979, and I relocate 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. I bought another house 20 miles up the coast and have been renting out this house full time ever since. We have welcomed guests from all around the world, and received only positive testimonials- more than 200 of them.

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?

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.

Views are out of this world

  • 5 of 5
The property is very private and very safe. The views are out of this world. It is also very quiet, and the house is very airy. Beautiful trees all around it. There is a main house, an adjacent guest house (great for kids, friends or in-laws) and a detached gym. It is a gated property, located at the end of a private street. And you hear the surf from the master’s bedroom, if you leave the windows open. From the kitchen, living room, and dining room, the ocean views are fabulous. The beds are very comfortable and the house is well clean. There is plenty of space to park behind the gates: we had a party, we had 12 cars in the yard.
The house is tastefully decorated and has a very romantic feel to it. The fireplace works, and there is surround sound system and 3 flat-screen TVs. We are very pleased, and plan to come back when our daughter graduates from Pepperdine.

Terrific property

  • 5 of 5
The property was as described, actually even better. The views are stunning and could not be contained in any photo. Wonderful location, the house overlooks 4 miles of the best public sandy beaches in Malibu. The amenities are great. Oversized towels, Turkish cotton bathrobes, 3 Tempurpedic mattresses, well-equipped gourmet kitchen. The property is clean and well-maintained. The owner provided good customer service. He responded to our emails within hours, and helped us with what we needed. We recommend this place highly. There are some very good restaurants nearby, and a very good supermarket with a very good organic produce department. We particularly enjoyed the Jacuzzi on the terrace. It’s quite a treat to see the sun rise and set from the Jacuzzi. The property, which sits on 8 acres, is very private and yet close to everything. And the location is terrific: the house overlooks Broad Beach, where people like Stephen Spielberg and Julia Roberts Danny DeVito have houses. We had the best vacation in many years.

Inspiring and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house to finish a script that my husband and I had been working on. We wanted an inspiring location, and we were not disappointed. It was not only inspiring but also very comfortable. We set up our computers in the dining room, overlooking the ocean. The high speed internet works in all rooms in both buildings. We particularly enjoyed the Jacuzzi, a very recent model with 35 jets and water always at a perfect temperature.

The kitchen is not very large but it is very well equipped, with Subzero, Bosh dishwasher and a gas range. We cooked some great meals for the whole family. We also enjoyed the barbeque on the terrace. We had a lot of friends visit from Los Angeles, they were all very impressed by the property.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
Last year, we rented a Malibu house that was not as represented. This property, by contrast, exceeded our expectations. The kids loved the guest house with the plasma screen, and we loved looking at the ocean from the terrace. The kitchen is well equipped. The machines in the gym work well. It is a great place for a family to vacation. At some point, we needed a high chair for one of the children of our friends, the owner arranged for it within 2 hours. The house is very quiet, absolutely no traffic noise. It is truly a little piece of paradise. The wood burning fireplace works and all the rooms are very tastefully decorated. We find that this house is exceptional value, in comparison to the other houses that we have rented in the past in Malibu. We recommend it highly.
