You will feel comfortable with the modern, upgraded, open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, picturesque windows which allow for the sweeping-ocean and mountain views to explode. Turn your head and
you will smell pink Jasmine flowers, deep pink tropical Bougainvillea plants, Birds of Paradise, Palm trees and dark purple ground cover. Enjoy nature at its best, then, hike, swim, walk, read, cook, shop and relax! This home features a close-in location in mid-Malibu.
Truly relax in this casual, beach-style, yet elegant home. Prepare to spend a magical stay of sun-filled days as this home faces east and is light and bright all day. There is no better place in Malibu to enjoy the nature you see from this deck while previewing the sunset with a glass of champagne or tall glass of ice tea. There is a gas barbeque to prepare your evening meals.
The chef’s gourmet kitchen is a real plus for this home. From the kitchen you will see and smell landscaping as well as see the brilliant ocean views. You will take your food straight from the kitchen to the open deck and enjoy all meals previewing the expansive blue pacific.
There is one big and expansive great room where you can cozy up near the fireplace as you watch your favorite movies on a Sony flat screen TV. There are books to read as you relax in this serene setting. A DVD player and full stereo system if music is your thing!

This home was purchased in 1981 as a family home. My son was raised here and thus, the home carries a long list of positive memories over the years. I've seen Malibu grow, I've seen this neighborhood grow and I love this home and the peace it offers me carried within the walls. I enjoy sharing my little piece of paradise with travelers all over the world.
Beverly Taki purchased this house in 1984
This property is called Casa de la Nueva Vida, the House of New Life!! Anyone who enters the front door immediately views the blue pacific and the energy eludes new life to all that enter! Another reason to select this property over others is that it's not just a permanent vacation rental home. It's my personal home that I enjoy sharing with visitors from all over the world who want to enjoy all that Malibu has to offer.
This is not a full time vacation home, bought and used soley for vacationers. This is a home, with the look and feel of a home, which brings it's warmth to all travelers and their families. The home is conveniently located in the center of Malibu. It is easy to get to the Malibu shopping area, easy to get to the beach, downtown LA of the San Fernando Valley! The home is unique because it is loved and cared for and wants others to enjoy the beauty and environment that will make you wanting to come back for another visit!
Home was very clean which was important. It was conveniently located to places we wanted to see. All the patios were great to enjoy the fresh air and views. The only to problems we had were the coffee maker didn't work and the blow dryer did not work properly either (would blow cold air while in hot position).
We rented this home to attend Pepperdine's graduation and stay for the Bible lectures. It was a wonderfully comfortable and convenient place. My husband and I took long walks through the neighborhood marveling at both the natural view and the incredible houses. My sons hiked to the setting of "MASH". We all went to both Getty's. The drive to Pepperdine was under 15 minutes. We were able to cook and host a celebratory dinner for about 16 people with appropriate tools and place settings. Beverly was very gracious in responding to our inquiries and worked with us to ensure the booking went smoothly. There are fairly substantial steps getting into the house so I wouldn't recommend it for people with mobility issues--otherwise a great place.
I am a 90 year old grandmother from Missouri, who came with my daughter’s family to see my grandson graduate from Pepperdine University. Our entire family had a wonderful visit to this lovely home in Malibu. When they were out enjoying the town, I was sitting on the deck watching the birds, looking at the big blue ocean, smelling the plants and reading a book. It was so quiet there; you don’t hear any neighbors even talking! We had our graduation dinner out on the deck and watched the sun set and we all had a grand time. I haven’t stopped traveling yet and God willing, if I can keep walking walk up and down stairs, I will be going back for graduation next year for my niece!
Lovely property with even more lovely view. Perfect for my teenage daughter and me. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals with; house very neat and clean. Owner responded right away to any questions we had. We hiked daily in beautiful Solstice Canyon right near the house. We hope to return very soon!
Our stay in Barbaras home was perfect. What a beautiful home with a forever view. The deck off the kitchen is amazing. Surrounded by fragrant flowers, the magical sounds of singing birds, and the expansive view of the deep blue ocean, you know that you are experiencing paradise . Thank you.
We literally just left this home (sadly I must add) this morning. We had such an amazing time. BBQing on the deck at sunset every night was incredible. This was kind of a last minute stay-cation for us, but Beverly (the owner) was extremely responsive and we had no issues whatsoever. The house is stocked with everything you need. I had a birthday party at Malibu Wines during the day, and it was only a $15 Uber ride there. I'm definitely going back. And some of our other guests have already looked into renting this as well. THIS is the best deal in Malibu!
