vacation rental description

Stay in a stunning architectural house with spectacular ocean and mountain views.  Our house is on twelve gated acres at the very west end of Malibu.  We are five minutes up a canyon where you will find privacy and breathtaking views in a completely serene environment.  The sunny house is furnished with a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen in the second bedroom, and twin beds in the den on the lower floors but there is only a powder room on the main level to serve this level..  The master suite had a large soaking tub and separate shower and the second bedroom has a full bath with a tub/shower combination.  The house has a guest portion rented to a quiet working architect. Both houses face away from each other for total privacy. The pool and patio are for the main house occupants only.

We are within minutes of the most beautiful beaches in Malibu and County Line surf beach.  Hike on the trails on the property or hike to the top of Boney Ridge.

traveler reviews for this malibu house rental

Beautiful home with stunning views,

Review submitted: April 1, 2014   Date of arrival: December 16, 2013

Stayed here for 2 weeks in December 2013. Partner and I have been coming to Malibu every winter for 10 years. Renting this beautiful home was a truly unexpected lucky find. The property & house itself is large, but with a layout that feels cozy (open concept kitchen-dining-living room with fireplace). Kitchen has top-end appliances and cookware, floor to ceiling windows throughout home let in lots of light with spectacular views to ocean & canyons. We felt at times like we were living on a movie set because everything was so beautiful, especially the outdoor area and the master bath with enormous soaking tub and views of the canyons & ocean. The weather was a little cool during our stay to use the huge swimming pool, but the pool guys kept it clean and we spent a couple of afternoons sunning in the yard
The owner left very detailed instructions about the house and surrounding area/attractions and promptly responded to any questions we had. There is a definite positive difference when staying at a house that has been both built and lived in by the owner as opposed to a managed rental property.
Didn't have cell phone signal at the house, but the wifi worked great. We plugged in our apple tv and watched netflix & hbogo every night on the large screen tv in the master bedroom. The beds were comfortable and linens were high quality.
This home is truly a hidden gem. We loved the solitude and privacy, and appreciated being off the beaten path. It's a ~5 min drive from the house down to the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and Neptune's Net restaurant (which also sells some staples and beer/wine). From there, it's another 10 mins down the coast to a Pavilion's shopping center by Zuma Beach (restaurants, fitness center, etc), and keep heading down the PCH to the Malibu Farmer's market and Santa Monica. It's about 40 mins-depending on traffic--to drive the other direction over the mountains into Thousand Oaks/Westlake (large mall, restaurants, movie theaters, etc). We planned our outings accordingly and enjoyed returning to our quiet and calm retreat away from the crowds & traffic. 10/10 would recommend this home, and definitely plan to stay here again in future visits.

Magnificent house

Review submitted: March 21, 2014   Date of arrival: February 3, 2014

A beautiful house in a breathtaking environment in one of the canyons of Santa Monica mountains. The house has been designed and built by the owner and if one appreciates good architecture, this is the perfect place to stay.

Magnificent view on the pacific ocean on one side and the mountains on the other, a perfect place to enjoy the quietness of live outside the big city. It fullfilled all our expectations, with as special attraction the variety of birds visiting the terrace on a daily basis, amongst others humming birds and quails. There are trails nearby for hiking lovers.

The swimmingpool is stunning and probably a necessity in summer. Shops and restaurants are a 20-30 minutes drive away, the house has a fully equipped kitchen and we took care of our own meals most of the time.

exceptional serenity

Review submitted: March 27, 2013   Date of arrival: March 13, 2013

I loved the place. It is perched on a side of a canyon, situated precisely so that the ocean is in one view and Boney Ridge in the other, yet the spot itself is flat and solid. The setting was peaceful, almost monastery-like, profoundly quiet except for the birds and wind. Without gushing, it was a stupendous spot, one I will remember. I spent mornings sitting on the patio at the table reading, to the sound of the hummingbird's wings as they went at the birds of paradise flowers, and the song birds that fed at the feeder, surrounded by sky and looking down at the clouds.

The house itself is sweet: the kitchen is well-equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, including a Thermidor 6-burner gas range. It is minimally furnished, which I like in a rental, so the owner's personality doesn't crowd you. The main floor has the kitchen, counter with seating for two, dining and all-purpose table in the middle, a couch and chair and best of all, by the fireplace, a built in large-scale slab covered with a cushion that was spacious enough for two or three to sprawl out on. There is also a half bath. Downstairs has two rooms: a bedroom with two singles, and a large open room with a piano overlooking the pool, also with built-in seating area. Upstairs is the master bedroom and an enormous bathroom with toilet, bidet, a shower, and a huge bathtub. Views from every room.

Fabulous beaches - the best in Malibu, in my opinion, are at the foot of Yerba Buena, 5-10 minutes down the road on PCH. No cell at the house, only down on PCH. The internet isn't speedy, but I was able to do everything I needed, although I did not try to stream movies. (There are DVDs in the master bedroom, with a TV screen.)

The first days were gloriously sunny, but then "June gloom" set in, and it was cloudy and the views hovered in and out of sight the rest of the time.

It is less than 30 minutes to the center of Malibu where the shopping plazas are.

I went hiking one day - about a 5 minute drive up YB Road are some trailheads, and I took a lovely trail to Balanced Rock for a 4 mile hike that was spectacular.

It is an extraordinary home, and the feeling of isolation contrasted to the swarms of Southern Cal. is especially pleasing.
