Perfect for vacations or short term luxury housing. Priced below comparable properties.
Available for weddings, receptions and events.
Ideal location for Bride and Groom to be or their guests attending nearby weddings at Calamigos Ranch, The Sunset Restaurant/Banquet facility, or Rancho Sol del Pacifico.
Location: This charming Cape Cod house is located in scenic and serene west Malibu just 45 seconds above Pacific Coast Highway. The rental rates are very competetive compared to similar Malibu properties. The grounds are landscaped with mature trees and a gardener is included. The views are perhaps the best in Malibu and afford excellent sunset watching. If you are attending a wedding or any event at Calomigos ranch, this home is just 8 minutes away, and is nicer and closer than any hotel. The home itself has a very open and private resort feel, and is not boxed in by neighboring properties. You will not want to leave!
The House: The home is a tasteful, up-to-date, 2 story beach house designed for an in-door-out-door lifestyle. The deck spaces make it great for entertaining. It is large enough for families, and is just as good as a romantic retreat for two. The kitchen contains an indoor grill. Almost all rooms have an ocean view. There are two fireplaces and several flat screen TVs..
Nearby Attractions: Ample hiking, horseback riding and mountain bike trails and wilderness parks are close by. Many Beaches, including famous Zuma Beach, are only minutes away. Matador Beach is a wonderland of caves, cliffs, rock formations and tide pools. Leo Carillo and County Line Beaches are known for their surfing and kite-boarders. Great shopping, dining and movie star sightings are offered at Malibu's main commercial hub comprising the Malibu Country Mart, The Colony Shopping Center and the newly opened 'Lumber Yard.' Another visitor favorite is the Malibu Pier where you may dine, fish for your own food, or simply stroll. There are also a number of restaurants and bars within 5 - 10 minutes drive of the house, including The Sunset, Hideaway Cafe Paradise Cove. The How's Trancas shopping center is a five minutes drive and a Pavillions supermarket 7 minutes. A public golf course is 10 minutes away. Close by winetasting in local vineyards.
The owners of the home were great. The location was perfect. The view was spectacular and serene. We enjoyed our stay at the home so much that we have decided to renew our wedding vows there next year. This location is a must see!!
Our family vacation & having the chance to rent this home turned out to be a successful vacation, we have rented this home once before and we absolutely love this home, the location, the view & accommodations the home itself we recommend. Our family loves this place. Clean & owners very pleasant, vrbo highly recommended.
We had a wonderful stay here and would love to be able to come back again. It was a great location for us and the view was heavenly! There were 8 of us staying there and there was plenty of space for everyone. One bedroom that shows in the pictures that it has twin beds had a full size, but, worked out ok for us as our 2 daughters shared the room. I would rather have had the twins, but, it worked anyway. I hate to make any complaint because our stay was wonderful, but, want the owners to know that the kitchen faucet needs to be replaced. There was no pressure from the faucet so we mostly just used the small spout that I guess is for filtered water. We would definitely recommend the place, in fact, my Son has already said he wants to get some friends and come stay there. He lives in Venice, CA, and thinks it would be a great getaway for he and his new wife! We were in town for their wedding. Its a very relaxing place! Thanks.
I rented this house for my partners birthday weekend. There were 7 of us in total staying at the house and it was extremely comfortable and spacious for our group.
The views were amazing, and the house felt like a Cape Cod style beach house as opposed to some of the modern and cold looking properties in Malibu. This definitely had a lived in feel to it. Some of the features are slightly dated and show wear and tear, but that actually made the space feel a little more welcoming.
The owner Tom and his daughter were extremely accommodating during our stay and also during the booking process.
As noted in previous reviews, I would agree that the house could be better stocked with items such as trash bags, cleaning spray, dish soap, and general cleaning supplies.
The only other thing that I found to be a little surprised by was not being told that there were surveillance cameras in the dining room and living room.
I would recommend this property for anyone looking for a comfortable space with amazing views.
We had an incredibly successful event here, and this house made it all the more better. The property is amazing, and manages to feel like home after just a few hours. If you're thinking about coming to this place, I definitely suggest it!
The owner is very nice, very accommodating, and super helpful. Make sure if you're throwing an event that you get your questions to him in blocks. He isn't easily reached and you'll want to get as much info as you need at once. The area is beautiful, the views from the house are heavenly, and there are amazing beaches right across the street, basically. Can't suggest this place enough.
A few minor things to keep in mind (for preparation):
Parking isn't ideal. It's not BAD by any means, but if you have a lot of people stopping by - plan ahead!
It could be a little better equipped. We had to bring our own knives, although there are quite a few pieces of silverware. Things like garbage bags, brooms, etc aren't really easy to find - or they weren't during my stay.
The plumbing is tempermental. This could've just been our stay. On the first night one of the main toilets/showers backed up - and our event was in 8 hours. We panicked a little when it took a few hours and phone calls to get the owner, but he was very quick to get their plumber out there. Unfortunately the plumber couldn't help and it continued to be broken. Life went on as usual, no big deal. just something to watch out for.
The amenities weren't all there.
-The gas grill in the kitchen wasn't working despite our asking a few times if it was. It took some serious work for us to get it to work, and it eventually quit out on us again.
-One of the gas stoves pilot lights was out, and we couldn't get it to light. There was a distinct smell of gas at all times (which we warned the owner of). The stove itself was quite old though, and he didn't seem too worried about it.
-The hot tub was not working. Despite asking the owner about turning it on a few times, it wasn't fixed during our several day stay. This wasn't the biggest deal, but just kind of a bummer. We wanted to use the hot tub! It was in great condition, and clean, just not on!
Not sure if the neighbors really like events being held there, either. One neighbor in particular stopped to give the owner a piece of his mind in the middle of our event. It happens, and is no reflection on the owner (great person), but something to keep in mind.
These are all just pointers to be prepared for. Great Place!
Golf: The Encinal Public Golf Course is under 10 minutes away and open to the public.
