Born and raised in France, business brought me to Manhattan in 1979. I moved to Malibu in 1994. We bought this house in 1995 and remodeled it, blending the style of the South of France with the original Malibu style. We moved to Los Angeles in 2007 and have rented out this house year-round ever since. We own other houses in Los Angeles, which we rent to Guests from around the world. We are grateful for the more than 300 positive testimonials received in our guest books.
Jean-Marie purchased this House in 1995

This house and view was over the top!! Takes your breath away! You could hear the ocean in the morning. Jean Marie was so helpful with the hot tub repair the first morning. Got it done quickly! We enjoyed talking with him about the history of the house. Jimmy Page lived here with Robert Plant, my husband googled it. Denzel Washington, Jan MIchael Vincent, Captain and Tenillle, what history! If those walls could talk!
Jean Marie provided us with a toddler bed, crib, and high chair. So very helpful for our family.
We enjoyed using the beach chairs, blanket and cooler provided one day at Zuma beach. Only thing I would suggest is some sand toys for the little ones.
I hope we get a chance to stay in this incredible home again.
Thank you Jean Marie for sharing your beautiful home.
Thank you so much for the kind words. We are delighted to read that you had a good time and that the house exceeded your expectations. This is indeed a very romantic special place, full of charm and rich with the stories of the celebrities that inhabited it. Thank you for choosing this beautiful property-- we hope you will be back!
A great get away... This beautiful home combines an escape from City life with the nearby luxury of world class restaurants. A unique find! Thanks to Jean Marie for the great hospitality. My husband requested I mention the terrific BBQ on the patio... Clean, burned hot, necessary utensils, plenty of gas. Not our typical house rental experience :)
Felt at home immediately!
I will definitely be returning to this stunning home. It is the perfect escape. The home feels like a authentic Malibu estate, not at all like a rental property. The mature west coast landscaping is well tended. The home is comfortable & tastefully decorated. Comfortable beds and linens. Well equipped kitchen. We cooked and washed our dishes while gazing out at the ocean. It is perched on the hillside with a view to die for. Lovely & accommodating outdoor space. Took my coffee in the steamy hot tub with a stunning view of the coast each morning =)
Jean-Marie was a friendly, helpful, communicative host. We look forward to visiting again soon!!! Thank you for making our family vacation so special!!
I'm sitting at the kitchen table of the house, sadly looking out at the ocean as I prepare to go back to cold Chicago. This home could not be in a better location if you are looking for beautiful views and a peaceful spot. The property is extremely private with a wonderful hot tub and very comfortable beds. Understand that the home itself is understated compared to surrounding homes but will meet all of your needs with a location and feeling that can't be matched. The house is within minutes of Matador Beach, Point Dume and many other beaches. It's an easy drive to lots of cool stuff but definitely not easy to get to LA or Disney if that's your goal. We came with friends who stayed in the guest house and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. Stay Here!
This was an absolutely beautiful property with breathtaking views. The home itself was clean with ample room for everyone to have their own space. The guest house was lovely and very cozy as well. We did not get a chance to use the hot tub, but it's located in a perfect place to sip some wine and watch the sunset. I recommend this property if you're looking for great views and a peaceful getaway from the busyness of LA.
Peaceful patio area with gorgeous 180-degree view of shoreline, close to Zuma beach
We had a most excellent time at your property. Your patio is very peaceful and the view is even more spectacular than we expected. The 4-person hot tub worked well. It provided welcome relief after beaching, surfing, hiking and the chill in the evening. You have a wonderful, quirky compound here, and we felt very much at home. It made for a great Christmas holiday for my family and friends. It was a pleasant surprise to see the sunrise as well as the sunset. The succulents garden bench was a treat in the hot afternoon. Wifi, all bed linens, supplies and appliances were as described. It took us a bit to figure out the remotes for the TV/Roku/DVD, but we were successful and used it all. We look forward to returning sometime in the future.
The house sits on 8 acres of land, about 1,200ft aerial distance from the ocean, on a 330ft high bluff overlooking 4 miles of sandy public beaches, with stunning 180º beach/whitewater views, arguably the best in Malibu. The wife of Hollywood star Jan Michael Vincent, who lived in this house with her husband before we bought it told us that Denzel Washington and Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page lived there before. The property sits on 8 acres of land, has 180º whitewater ocean views, and faces a 4 mile long public sandy beach including Westward beach, Broad beach, Zuma beach. The property is quiet and private, with three buildings: the main house, an adjacent guest house and a detached gym. You will have exclusive use of all three.
