About Kathryn Yarnell

I'm a former Beverly Hills Interior Designer. My husband and I own and operate Malibu Premier Properties in Malibu. We love it here and wouldn't choose to live anywhere else. I was twice voted MALIBU REALTOR OF THE YEAR and was awarded The Malibu Times Dolphin Award for outstanding community service. I have also served as President of The Malibu Association of Realtors. We built Villa Bella Malibu in 2005 as our DREAM HOME and love to share our slice of Malibu with our guests facilitating fabulous Vacations for them.

Kathryn Yarnell purchased this estate in 2005

Why Kathryn Yarnell chose Los Angeles County

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.

What makes this estate unique

Watch the kite surfers, paddle boarders & surfers sport their skills, from the Villa, Decks, & Loggia. Relax in the gardens or soak in the Ocean View SPA with outdoor private Shower enjoy Humming Birds, & green parrots bathing in the garden's Exquisite Fountains. Stroll to Beach or Neptune's Net, (the locals & traveler's favorite hangout restaurant and bar). Explore the Nearby hiking trails, enjoy the starry, starry nights & Romantic Moonlight & Sunsets by the Sea!

Guestbook comments from the owner

An amazing house with some of the best views in Malibu!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this house for 5 nights over Memorial Day Weekend. It is a spectacular home....beautifully decorated interior and landscaping, spacious and elegant accommodations, a gourmet kitchen, and 2 balconies with the most gorgeous views of the ocean and coast of Malibu. We were in town for a wedding with our 3 adult children. We spent every free evening at the house...there was no reason to leave the property! The owners, Katharine and Don, went out of their way to insure all of our needs were met.....including beach chairs and towels! We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend the property. Loved it!

Everything the listing promises ... and more!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed. It looks exactly as the pictures. Plus, the hosts have thought of everything for your comfort and convenience. Best stocked kitchen EVER! Matching dishes, complete pans and cutlery, condiments and spices. They even have rosemary bushes out their door which we used in frittatas. They have thought of everything you might need or ask and provided for it. If there was an award for Best Host, this couple would win it, hands down. Add to that the beautiful house, lovely views and comfortable beds. Only caveat, the third bedroom is really a cot set up in their library, so, if needing a true third bedroom, be advised. But who wants to sleep with so much going on for the eyes to feast on? You will not be disappointed. We plan to come back again for our annual meeting in this lovely business and pleasure haven.

Can I give it 6 stars??

  • 5 of 5

First of all I cant say enough good things about this property..Don was there to greet us and showed us everything about the house...sorry we didnt get to meet Kathryn.. There are so many luxury features I can only list a few: luxury bed linens, towel warmers, top of the line appliances including a Wolf range, jacuzzi on the terrace, steam shower, super size tv with every channel you can imagine and incredibly beautiful furnishings...but the best thing was the fantastic view of the Pacific..and it was immaculately clean (very important to me).

I took my two daughters and we had so much fun exploring the Santa Monica countryside and the beaches of Malibu..this house was a perfect location..not too far away but also not crammed in the middle of beach houses with bad beaches. The beaches around this Villa are all beautiful.. Be sure to check out Point Dume..and I LOVED the Vintage Grocer which is about a 7 min drive..

Another thing I liked was the privacy. We loved how the house is nestled on the hillside surrounded by beautiful gardens and hedges, yet its close enough to have a view of the surf.

I would definitely rent this house again and hope to go back. The only thing that would make my stay more enjoyable was if we could have a stayed a few more days.

We are all simpaticos and I can't wait to meet you next time you can get away for a well deserved vacation.
