ROMANTIC, GATED CELEBRITY HOUSE ON 8 ACRES, 180º OCEAN VIEWS

If you’re searching for the ultimate Malibu getaway, look no further. This celebrity home on 8 acres includes three buildings: the main house, guest house and detached gym. You get exclusive use of the three buildings: no one else in the property. The property is equipped with all the modern amenities for a restful vacation. It has stunning 180º ocean views from sunrise to sunset, and faces a four-mile long stretch of public sandy beach, the best in Malibu. From the living room you see the sun rise and set over the ocean, and the dolphins play in the surf.

This retreat is perfect for friends seeking a romantic and restful holiday, or professionals preferring not to stay in a hotel, or a multi-generational family where every age group wants their privacy. Standing next to the main house, the guest house is a great private space for in-laws, friends or children and has a full bathroom.

As you arrive through a private street and pass through the gate, you discover an oasis of old Malibu charm, surrounded by mature junipers and California pepper trees. Cool ocean air flows through this private retreat. The property was once the home of Captain & Tenille and Jan Michael Vincent. He told us that Denzel Washington and Jimmy Page lived there before him.

About Jean-Marie

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 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 via HomeAway to Guests from around the world. We are grateful for the more than 300 positive testimonials received in our guest books

Jean-Marie purchased this house in 1995

Why Jean-Marie chose Malibu

The most romantic and comfortable 3BR 2BA celebrity house on 8 acres in Malibu with the best 180º ocean views, a fireplace, an ocean-facing hot tub, a gourmet kitchen and a detached gym. Beamed ceilings, fireplace, gourmet kitchen, comfortable Posturepedic beds. Ideal for families, or groups of friends to get away and chill.

You will enjoy the complete privacy: the house sits behind gates, on 8 acres of land. From the ocean-facing hot tub, watch the sun rise and set over the ocean. From the dining room, terrace or hot tub, watch the dolphins surf the waves.

The house faces the best, 4 mile long stretch of public sandy beach in Malibu. Steven Spielberg, Julia Roberts, Danny De Vito and other celebrities have houses on this beach.

What makes this house unique

Stunning ocean views, romantic, private, comfortable, cozy, elegant, excellent amenities, clean, safe, gated property on 8 acres. This house was the residence of Jan MIchael Vincent (Airwolf TV series). His wife told us that, before him, Denzel Washington, Jimmy Page, and Captain & Tenille and several other celebrities lived there.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. Yes this is a very special place, there are very few original Malibu celebrity homes left, and with modern amenities. And this one really has the best ocean view in Malibu! We are delighted to hear that you had a great time, and hope you will be back soon!

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We loved visiting the Malibu area that is close to beaches and Hollywood celebrities. We also had fun going to exceptional beach restaurants and driving up the coast to Santa Barbara. Scenic state park hiking in the Santa Monica mountains is a short drive away. The home was charming and great for guests who would want their own space in the master suite which is in a separate building. The kitchen was well supplied. We loved the views from the hot tub and cooking on the patio grill as we gazed at the Pacific Ocean. The owner was very responsive. You will not be disappointed in this rental!

True charm, stunning vista, excellent responsive host.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you pass through the electronic gate high in the hills into the property, you know you have entered someplace special. Unrivaled view of the coastline. An original Malibu style home. Sad to see the gate close behind us as we left for the airport. Wished the very small bathrooms were more accommodating for special needs - but otherwise everything we had hoped for.

Beautiul Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a month in this beautiful home. The views are terrific, home is exceedingly nice. All our guests loved the separate guest house. It has everything you could ask for in a guest house. We loved all the beautiful trees, plants, including the Monet garden. And we did enjoy using the exercise cottage. The kitchen is very well equipped and immaculate. We were there when the four year drought ended which meant a lot of rain the last two weeks we were there. Jean-Marie was very prompt with any needs we had. Thank you Jean Marie. We hope to return.

Stunning views, romantic property

  • 5 of 5

We just had a lovely time in this wonderful house. It had been raining, so the air was crisp and clean, and we could see far away over the ocean: on the left Palos Verdes and Catalina Island, and on the right, the Channel Islands. Amazing views. The sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, which you can see from the living room, were gorgeous. We enjoyed the evenings by the wood-burning fireplace. Our two kids stayed in the spacious guest house. They had their own TVs and we had our privacy. Overall this is a very well equipped property: comfortable beds, nice linen, plenty of towels, well stocked gourmet kitchen, efficient heating, good TVs. And a gym with 5 exercise machines. Everything was clean and neat. January is a fantastic time to visit Malibu and we are glad we chose this house. We will be back next January!
