About the Owner

Born and raised in France, business brought me to Manhattan in 1979. I moved to Malibu in 1994. We bought this house in 1995 and remodeled it, blending the style of the South of France, where I come from, with the original Malibu style. We moved to Los Angeles in 2007 and have rented out this house year-round ever since. We also have two houses in Los Angeles, which we rent to Guests from around the world. We are grateful for the more than 200 positive testimonials received in our guest books

Guestbook comments from the owner

My first impression upon arriving at the house was that of a special place; like a retreat overlooking a gorgeous ocean panorama view.

My opinion only got better during our stay because the house has exactly what we were looking for: tastefully furnished comfort with old world charm. I loved the mix of some antique traditional furniture and oriental carpets with contemporary.

There was room enough for our whole family and our 2 children each brought a friend and the 4 of them were able to stay in their own separate quarters in the guest house, giving my husband and I and our best friends who came with us, some adult peace and quiet.

We all love to cook and found the kitchen and out door barbeque well appointed with everything we needed. Even though we had one rainy day, the house is light and bright and the dining room, surrounded by glass, feels like one is practically eating out doors on the terrace.

Perfect for sunset dining. Our only complaint is that we could not stay longer.

Couldn't wait to get home to our Malibu retreat each night

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed a week here. It was so quiet and the view was terrific. I was so excited each morning to get up and drink coffee on the patio overlooking the sea. The house was fully stocked and Jean Marie was so available and accommodating. It was across the street from the Pacific ocean on the hill but still heard the waves crash. Slept like a log each night. Kitchen was COMPLETELY stocked with everything. Ate at Malibu Seafood Market and Dukes and loved each of these restaurants. Wish I had spent more time at our Oasis. Looked so forward to coming back each night to our secluded get away. Worth the drive to Malibu after being in San Diego or LA. I want to come back. Thanks JM!!

I am so happy that I chanced upon this property which has one of the BEST VIEWS in Malibu. This was the perfect break we all needed to get out of our busy schedules and get into Zen mode.

I had been to many rentals till date but the way the owner has taken care of the minutest of details and has preempted questions one might have, and provided supporting documents is very impressive. I was accompanied by my in laws and the property provided ample privacy for everyone to relax and have fun their own way. This beautiful home surpassed everyone's expectation and no one had to compromise on anything.

Nothing can beat drinking a cup of tea and getting lost into the seascape, of course wine and cheese for the husband! We had a small funny episode that just added extra excitement to our stay.

A memorable week that will be cherished for a long long time…

Complete privacy, breathtaking views.

  • 5 of 5

It doesn't get better then this if what you are looking for is a quiet, private home with incredible views of the shoreline. The beach is a mile away. There are plenty of places to choose, from the busy Zuma beach to the quiet Broad pocket beach. The kitchen has everything you need to cook at home for two or entertain 10. Just a perfect getaway.

Beautiful property with awesome ocean views. Perfect for multigenerational families.

  • 5 of 5

My family (myself, husband, daughter, 1 year old granddaughter, son and his girlfriend) had a wonderful, relaxing time at this beautiful house and property. The owner could not have been more accommodating - when we needed beach towels, blanket and umbrella, he brought them the very same day we asked. The house is very convenient to a number of beaches, and to a number of markets. The view from this very comfortable home was the best view we've ever had and on July 4th we were amazed to see a great display of fireworks on a barge located directly across from us. We barbecued almost every night and enjoyed the hot tub overlooking the ocean. After a tough year it was great for our family to be together and just relax and enjoy. We definitely plan to return and again thank Jean Marie for sharing his magical house with us.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

The house sits on a little bluff overlooking the ocean. The best part is the view, I’d say it’s one of the best in Malibu.

This house has a lot of charm. it is not large, but it was spacious enough to accommodate my husband and I, our 2 kids, and our daughter and her 2 kids.

We love to cook and used the kitchen a lot. There liked the copper-lined stainless steel pots from Williams Sonoma and the gas range.

The house sits at the end of a private street, in a safe, secure and private spot. The property is gated, so the kids were able to roam free, without supervision.

The house comes with 3 TV-s in the living room, master bedroom and guest house, this came handy, everyone could watch their favorite shows-- great for families with kids.

On the last night, we had a farewell dinner with friends from Los Angeles and were pleasantly surprised that we had parking space for 10 cars around the house. This was handy: our experience is that many houses in Malibu have no or little parking.

We enjoyed this house and recommend it highly.
