Fantastic family or couples vacation retreat. You will feel right at home when you walk up the Spanish style steps to an open floor plan. Vaulted ceilings, hand painted tile surfaces, and sweeping mountain and ocean views throughout the house.

Rub shoulders with movie stars as you brunch at one of the many delightful restaurants found within walking distance from the beach.

Enjoy a good night's sleep in its comfortable king size bed, or take a nap on its cozy day bed that has a very comfortable trundle bed . The huge sundeck off the master suite is ideal for 'al fresco' dining, sunbathing, and watching the sunset as you sip a margarita or a glass of wine. Downstairs, the bedrooms share a charming colonial style bathroom. One guest room with its queensize bed is a romantic retreat with its own private deck and garden view.

The kitchen has lots of counter space and a breakfast bar. The dining area has a deck, ideal for morning coffee or an afternoon hors d'oeuvre.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know what a terrific time we have had at your house. On our arrival we were met by your friendly handyman who was doing some fixes to the kitchen faucet and water, but had everything turned on and ready to go in a few hours (and he was able to give us some good local food selections to visit during our stay).



I did want to let you know that we are leaving tomorrow (Wednesday June 5th) at 11am. I'll follow all the departing instructions before we leave. We were able to put the trash out on Monday but have more that will be left in the canisters that i'm sure will need to make it to the curb for next week's pick up (which I imagine your cleaning people will be able to do - because we don't want to leave it at the end of the driveway for that many days).



If there is anything else that I should know prior to leaving please let me know.



Again, thank you for the rental. Malibu was just beautiful.

Idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location; so close to beaches, shops, Malibu central, not to mention Santa Monica and L.A. The house was superbly located, and presented, with a fantastic array of equipment for guests. Tricia, the owner, kept in touch to make sure we had everything we needed - and we did. The house was exactly as advertised, perhaps even a little undersold!

There is an enormous amount if space un the hiuse, bedrooms are generously laid out, and main living space is really comfortable and homely.

We had the most fantastic time here, truly memorable, we will never forget our holiday in Malibu. The neighbours were all very friendly, and made us feel welcome throughout our stay.

The road up to the house offers incredible views, but it can be precarious so take it easy!

&We had a lovely time in this wonderful home. The energy is delicious - the views are great - the rooms are so cozy and inviting. Wonderful linens. Home is tastefully decorated. Tiles are fabulous!!! Excellent area to get together with family and eat and celebrate.

Great kitchen, all supplies to have a wonderful vacation are provided for the ultimate Malibu experience. Beautiful landscaping and flowers, very intimate and sensual as well.

So happy that we found this listing and were blessed with the opportunity to rent this house.

We are so grateful. We are so blessed.

Wishing you,

Peace & Love, Just Because,

Perfect Family Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 (2 adults and 5 children 8 and under) went for a vacation at this wonderful home. We had the best time and felt completely at home and comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and spread out. The kids loved playing outside in the yard and we were just a short drive away from amazing beaches, restaurants and grocery store. The view was breath taking. I look forward to the next time we can take a family beach vacation because we will definitely book this home.

Great getaway, up windy road with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for a birthday getaway! Owner was most helpful as the surprise was planned. The patio on the side of the house was perfect for a lovely wine n food pairing with a sommelier and special guests---sunset views, quiet street, and easy access to a great kitchen as all was coordinated throughout the evening. We also enjoyed the deck for many meals, plus the bed linens were wonderful. Highly recommend this because of its location, also---easy to explore Malibu north or south but as you climb the hill, you are in another world.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely hillside home back in December. We had the good fortune to arrive right after a storm, so the weather was exquisite. Because of a slide on the PCH, we had to come in by an alternate route, but even that was easy and picturesque. We arrived to an immaculate house surrounded by other equally lovely places. I'm having a hard time believing this is the same place that was slandered by another guest. Everything was in working order; the shower, dishwasher, heater, windows, etc. The king size bed was heavenly. My daughter and I slept like logs and woke to the most beautiful views. We had breakfast on the downstairs deck and we could see sup the coastline to the north. Neighbors walking dogs were quiet, but friendly. We enjoyed going to the pier during the day, and after the 90th birthday party we attended in LA, we went back to the pier to enjoy a glass of wine at the restaurant on your immediate left as you walk in. They had heaters and blankets to keep us warm while we watched the waves. Definitely a great place to come back with my husband!

NOT a nice place to stay!

  • 1 of 5

My family were so excited to stay in Malibu! Now it is on my list for most overrated. Probably in large part due to our bad experience at this house. I could go on and on but I'll just try to sum it up.

**A/C did not reach the upstairs- it was super hot!!

**THERE IS NO MASTER BEDROOM! It is just a loft, open to below and therefore loud, hot, not private which equals NO SLEEP!

**Coffee maker was broken! That meant having to drive down the canyon to get coffee (until a handyman did actually bring us a new one...thank you George).

** Garbage disposal- broken

** Dishwasher - broken (yes, said handyman fix it later)

** Painful shower in master- sharp, biting spray.

** Windows wouldn't close in "master" bath.

** Garage door was broken (yes, fixed during our stay)

** Fridge was super dirty with tons of old food left in it!

** TV....yep, didn't work!

** Phone...didn't work either!

** Cell service....NONE!!!!

Etc. etc. (did I mention spiders??)

Now I must say that the owner did respond quickly when I informed her of all of these issues. A handyman came a couple of days after we arrived and spent quite a bit of time there but it was very loud and inconvenient and I was not comfortable leaving my kids and sitter alone with an older gentleman. I felt that some discount should have been warranted but the owner never responded to my request for that. We ended up leaving days earlier than planned and just getting the heck out of there.

I do feel bad about writing this review and VRBO will probably delete it but I wish I had been able to read a review like this before deciding to stay there. I would have been horrified to have someone so uncomfortable in my house. It's best for you to find somewhere else to stay.

Owner's Response: Some people are just NOT meant for Malibu. It is a much publicized town because of celebrities living there and movies and television shows being filmed there. However, Malibu is a laid back, family oriented community. It is a wonderful place to visit if you want to relax, enjoy the outdoors, the beach and family and friends with whom you are traveling. Perhaps it is difficult to have a good time anywhere when reality doesn't measure up to expectations! Now to address the ISSUES! **I am happy that it was mentioned that I responded to these issues quickly. I always want guests to feel comfortable. It was unusually hot-over 90º F. The home has central air conditioning and it cools the entire home. There is also a ceiling fan in the master to circulate air. **Our home is in a neighborhood that is extremely quiet. The master is a huge loft type room with plenty of privacy and a large private deck. Noise has never been an issue for anyone in the 8 years the we have been renting the home on VRBO. **Sometimes things break-it just happens! As soon as I heard that the coffee pot was not working, a new one was delivered as was a new telephone. **The garbage disposal needed the reset button reset. **The dishwasher had a small bone stuck in the outlet-an easy fix. **The shower head can be adjusted by the guest. **Windows in bathroom are louvers-just twist the levers and they close. **Garage door was broken by the prior guests and there was no way to know this until this guest brought it to my attention. It was promptly fixed. **The refrigerator was not dirty. There where some condiments left in it by the cleaning woman because she thought they might be welcome by the next guest. She didn't want to be wasteful and truly thought she was doing a nice thing. **Television works. Please read the instructions. **Some cell phones do not work in parts of Malibu because of the canyons and mountains, but I always let guests know this before they rent. **It is a well known fact that spiders come inside when it hot outside. I was not informed that they were leaving early until a week later by email. If I had been told, I would have been able to make a refund as I could have rented it to another family who wanted it for those days, I feel bad about writing this response. Some people are meant to stay in hotels where there is a full staff at their beck and call.....
