Property Details

Updated: Aug 25, 2016
Celebrity house with best ocean views in Malibu, comfort, and privacy

Malibu’s most spectacular coastline whitewater ocean views from sunrise to sunset.

This heavenly property boasts 180º ocean views and 180º mountain views. In the 70s, Captain and Tenille lived there with a chimpanze. We bought the house shortly after Jan Michael Vincent ("Airwolf") moved out. The neighbors told us that, before him, Jimmy Page and Denzel Washington had lived in this magical retreat overlooking a continuous stretch of 4 miles of public sandy beach, the best in Malibu. With 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a detached gym and 10 private parking spaces, this gated property sleeps 8 comfortably. The rental includes exclusive use of the three buildings: main house, guest house, detached gym, and complete privacy.

From the oversize outdoor patio, see the sun rise and set on the ocean. From the terrace, you overlook miles of Malibu’s most famous surfing beaches, see dolphins play, and watch whales migrate. From the master bedroom, you wake up and sleep to the sound of waves.

Ask for the URL or our web site, which has more photos and detailed information about the amenities.

Offering complete privacy and yet close to all, this romantic jewel sits on 8 acres of land.

This one-of-a-kind estate is just 1,200ft aerial distance from prestigious Broad Beach. Arrive through a private driveway, pass through the gate, and discover an oasis of old Malibu charm, surrounded by mature junipers and California pepper trees. Cool ocean air flows through this private retreat.

The charming house is elegantly decorated, with open-beamed ceilings, lots of windows and natural light, a fireplace,custom antique furniture, 3 flat screen TVs, a surround sound system and Posturepedic beds. It is perfect for couples, families, or friends seeking a romantic and restful holiday or professionals who prefer not to stay in a hotel. It comfortably accommodates up to eight people.

With a large oceanfront patio and a spa overlooking miles of whitewater, this tastefully remodeled getaway offers the indoor-outdoor California Malibu lifestyle at its best.

About the Owner

Born and raised in France, business brought me to Manhattan in 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 come from, with the unique original Malibu style. 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

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.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. The ocean view is indeed the best in Malibu. The house sits on 8 acres of land, and overlooks 4 miles of public sandy beach, the best in Malibu. Steven Spielberg, Danny de Vito, Julia Robert and other such celebrities have houses on Broad beach, just in front of the house. From the terrace, the ocean is only 1,200ft away, aerial distance. We are delighted to hear that you had a wonderful time. Thank you for choosing this house.

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.

Stunning ocean views and a great house

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming each Spring to Malibu each year since 2002, to escape the cold in Quebec. We have rented many houses all around Malibu, over the years. This house has the nicest views, and is the most cozy, and has that old-Malibu charm that newer, larger houses on or near the beach do not have.

My husband and I have a bad back and are picky when it comes to mattresses, and were so happy that it was a firm model, the “Sealy Posturepedic”, but with a comfy pillow top.

Each bedroom comes with spare bedsheets, nice big towels and extra blankets. The kitchen is terrific (Subzero fridge, gas range,. etc..)

The SmartTV in the living room allows you to stream Netflix and Hulu—this kept our grandchildren entertained.

We spent a lot of time on the terrace gazing at the endless views of the ocean, and in the hot tub, enjoying the sunset. The views are of Catalina Island, the Palos Verde Peninsula and the Channel Islands.

We love this place, we will be back!

Outstanding country home in Malibu

  • 5 of 5

My husband turned 70 and I wanted to take him for a special trip. We found this amazing home on the ocean in Malibu and booked our stay. From the first communique to the last notes with the owner, we found Jean Marie to be an amazing Inn keeper.His attention to our needs went beyond our expectations. But the home is darling. A sweet stucco home that is so loaded with amenities. We had a few family get togethers while there, and everyone agreed, this was a perfect spot.

We plan to come back again, hopefully in the fall.
