About Kathryn Yarnell

Why Kathryn Yarnell chose Malibu
After traveling in Italy and France extensively we wanted to incorporate the best of what we saw there in our own Villa on this special land. We incorporated old world character as well as Modern state- of the art Amenities. We employed European Artisans to finish the interior spaces and incorporate architectural elements we have collected over the years. Building our Dream Villa was a real labor of love for us and we delight in sharing our magical Villa with discerning travelers.

Ideal week of relaxation and fun
This beautiful house was our home for a week - we had a great time exploring the Malibu/Ventura beaches and canyons, cooking delicious meals in the great kitchen, and enjoying the lovely garden. The view was gorgeous, the house ornate, friendly, luxury. Hosts Kathryn and Don were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay (thank you for the coffee machine!). Highly recommended. We hope to return soon.
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting your wonderful family and hosting your stay. Hope to see you back for another well deserved vacation!
Fabulous! Stunning views & accommodations. Everything readily available and wonderfully presented. Exactly as advertised. Highly recommended!
The property is amazingly special. The views from all areas are breathtaking and intensely serene. The decor is unique and reminds you of a villa in Italy. You feel as if you are in another country. However, during vacation time I think a bit too many rules regarding care but understandable considering the expense of rare pieces. So you may want to consider if bringing children. We were a group of 4 ladies.
The owner is gracious and very accommodating. Overall we enjoyed our Villa Bella stay.
Thank you, Brenda for the review. No worries about children. I put breakables away when we have small children staying at the property.
Perfect experience all around...
Can't say enough about how great this experience was. The property is absolutely beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice! I will definitely plan on staying here again when I am in town. It was perfect.
Thank you Christopher. We would love to have you back as often as possible. You were a delight to host and hope to see you next year!
Fabulous Malibu Home
Truly a luxurious home, sumptuously appointed, with nothing forgotten to ensure guests a memorable stay. Quiet and private, we, a group of three couples, enjoyed out-of-this-world views from all areas both inside the home and also from the outside spaces. Kathryn is a pro in the hospitality business and a delightful person to meet!
My wife, two sons and I recently stayed at Villa Bella for five nights. My only regret is that it wasn't longer. This lovely villa is located a few minutes north of the busiest parts of Malibu, making it peaceful and easy to get to beaches, while avoiding the worst of traffic. The home is a work of art, with panoramic ocean views from most rooms in the house. The owner's love of France and Italy are apparent in the architecture, decoration, and landscape. The multi-level garden terraces are frequented by parrots and hummingbirds. Whether having dinner on the upper terrace or breakfast coffee, the view and sounds of the waves breaking were rejuvenating to my soul. Kathryn and Don are a delightful couple, and we enjoyed visiting with them. The best of Hollywood is a mere ninety-minute drive through the canyon and down the 101 freeway. I can't imagine a better place to stay. I highly recommend the Villa Bella to anyone who is looking for a sanctuary near the beach. Delightful.
