About Mehrdad Sahafi

We are husband & wife team of Malibu. Local architect and builder for over 24 years. We enjoy building exquisite estates for ourselves & clients alike & built this mansion (Villa Shiraz) for primarily our own use in year 2007. We would love to have other guests share & enjoy memorable time in Villa Shiraz & its mountain/vineyard views.

Mehrdad Sahafi purchased this villa in 2007

Why Mehrdad Sahafi chose Malibu

As mentioned earlier, we purchased the land, designed and built this estate from ground up since we are local architect and builders. We fell in love with its location surrounded by vineyards and its unobstructed panoramic mountain, vineyard, Saddle Peak & canyon views.

What makes this villa unique

Watching our favorite movies in the most sophisticated indoor theaters ever built, swimming in the infinity pool and used of spa wrapping around the Villa (butting right next to it). Enjoy wine tasting from your own private wine cellar while watching some of the most amazing sunsets overlooking a glorious panoramic unobstructed mountain & canyon views, the neighboring vineyards and Saddle Rock. We've enjoyed making our own pizzas, breads, etc., in the wood burning pizza oven and entertaining families and friends. Great place for entertainment.

Just had my wedding at this magnificent location. Perfect spot for small gatherings. Mehrdad, Rosie, Fifi and the whole operation was more than welcoming and a joy to work with. The location is so private yet expansive, like you have the whole canyon to yourself. And a kitchen TO DIE FOR!

Could be great. Definitely a beautiful location

I was looking for a stress-free wedding and brought in my own crew (all friends from work) of managers, servers, bartenders and chefs. On that end, it was a fantastic wedding, but I was a little bummed that the owners were so difficult to work with AFTER the contract was signed. On the flip side, I was returned all the deposit quickly so that was good. It was more the stress I was put through leading up to the wedding over little things they piled on me and the stress created by the continual threat of lose the 5k security deposit if this or that happened. It was the only difficult part of my entire wedding.

ISSUE 1. I arranged for shuttle service at the wedding and included directions in my invitations based off of their recommendation. One week before the wedding I receive a call from the owner. He said flat out I must have valet. I told him I asked about it BEFORE I signed the contract (which required nothing) and was told it was ok. I told him I had put a lot of thought into it and it would be ok. His response: "tell me why I should believe it will be ok". I was shocked. He was so forceful and I had to play nice just to make sure I still had a venue the following week. I informed him I ran weddings for a living and did a bunch of sweet talking to get him to agree! My fiancé was irate after listening to how low I had to stoop to sweet talk Mehrad, practically begging to be allowed to do what I was already contractually allowed to do and what I had paid to be allowed to do.

ISSUE 2. We weren't allowed to heat the pool or spa without a 50-300 charge per day! This WAS written in the contract but what happened to facilities being included when renting a house? The contract even had it written in that if we used more electricity than the average person we'd be charged the additional. I felt a little nickel & dimed.

ISSUE 3. After they received my payment and signed contract a list of additional requirements was sent to me. One was that on top of cleaning up everything party related I need to get rid of all the trash that didn't fit in their little trash bins. I have a wedding for 156ppl. I paid 8k just for them to be there on that day. The least the villa could do is take care of additional trash. I understand putting it in/near the bins, but not having to take it with me.

ISSUE 4: not allowed a rehearsal unless I paid for extra ppl to come on property after assuring me it shouldn't be a problem or forfeit of 5k deposit.

This property was spectacular. My husband and I wanted to have our wedding reception party at a home however couldn't find one big enough to accommodate our families and friends until we stumbled across Villa Shiraz. As soon as we walked in the front door, we knew this was the place for us! Our event started before sunset and because of the scenic view and openness of the floor plan we really didn't need to add much of anything, we just opened all the doors and enjoyed what Malibu canyon had to offer! The space was perfect for 5 couples and our families are already talking about coming back for a reunion. The owner's staff, especially Fifi, was super friendly, helpful and accommodating before and during our stay. The owners also returned our full deposit within 4 days of checkout! The only thing to keep in mind is that you must end your party before 9pm, the cops showed up at 8:45pm threatening a $10,000 noise fine.

Incredible spot for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5
We had 10 adults and 7 kids ages 3 1/2 to 14 and Villa Shiraz accommodated all of us with plenty of space for private moments as well pool and movie times. I couldn't have chosen a better spot as a grandmother to bring us all together. Mehrdad, Rosie a do their rep. FiFi were a delight to work with.

Wonderful Locale

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic sunsets, all amenities you would need and more. Hosted a 40th birthday party and it was spectacular . Very private and welcoming. Would highly recommend. Not for kids 2 and under but my 3 yo was in heaven. Hard stairs for tiny ones which we learned the hard way. Great movie room, fantastic views and very privates. In a word "perfect"!

Wedding of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5
My son and his fiance chose to have a small intimate wedding with 20 close family and friends. We chose this property and boy did we make the right choice. This home is perfect for a family get-together or special occasion. First of all, we had one of our guests who is a caterer and works in a restaurant in Santa Barbara, do all the cooking and he told me that the kitchen was better equiped than his restaurant! The grounds were beautiful, and we had a very intimate wedding on the lower lawn. The manager, Rosie and her husband were great to deal with also. This truly was a wonderful choice and we have wonderful memories.
