Villa Bella Malibu is located on Malibu's Western Shore which is a recreational Mecca and natural wonderland. The Villa overlooks the renowned County Line Beach and surf break made famous in song by the Beach Boys. The athletic, the adventurous and those with a passionate zeal for the out-of-doors love to explore this pristine natural play ground.
Villa Guests can intermingle with sun worshipers, surfers, paddle boarders, kayakers, scuba divers and colorful kite-surfers performing high-flying acrobatics just a block and a half down the road. The waters of the vibrant underwater realm consistently score A+ ranking from the Heal the Bay Society. The local reef is a natural aquarium of colorful, and abundant sea life.
ENTERTAINMENT and at-the-Villa SPA DAYS: Many guests tell us they prefer to completely relax and seldom go out at all! They enjoy reading a good book from the well-stocked library, sun bathing in the garden, watching the humming birds drink from the carved stone fountains, soaking in the totally private, ocean-view, outdoor Spa, taking a therapeutic Steam Shower or a romantic Spa bath in the magnificent Master Bathroom's over sized oval tub. They equally love viewing films and Television from one of the three large flat screen TVs with surround sound, DVRs with tons of premium channels, plus a collection of over 220 DVD's.
The Villa offers a Wi-Fi computer system with hook ups for Mac or PC users for those who need to stay connected as well as a house phone with free calling anywhere in the US or Canada.
CELEBRITY SIGHTINGS AND SHOPPING: Villa Bella Malibu is just minutes away from the heart of Malibu's downtown in close proximity to a tempting array of local pastimes: celebrity watching, browsing designer boutiques at the eco-chic Malibu Lumber Yard, taking tthe kids to the playground at Malibu Country Mart, dining at Nobu, seaside cocktails at Geoffrey's, strolling the sculptured gardens and antiquity collection at the Getty Villa, wine tasting at Rosenthal's Vineyard or perusing art exhibitions at Pepperdine's Weisman museum.
GREAT (CLOSE-BY) THINGS TO DO: There are amazing hiking trails with grottos and waterfalls and the trailhead to Mount Allen (the tallest mountain in the Santa Monica Mountain chain) is a favorite close by destination for hikers.
Guests also enjoy boating excursions from the Malibu pier including deep sea fishing, sailing or whale watching. You can deep sea dive or go snorkeling off the local reef located only 2 blocks from the house or take a day trip to Santa Barbara, shop, dine, catch a show and return to the Villa in just over an hour’s drive time.
Guests claim that it is virtually impossible to be bored or unhappy here. They enjoy cocktail hour at the end of a well spent day watching the setting sun sink down behind the Channel Islands from the Villa’s expansive ocean viewing decks and loggias.
This is truly the paradise you have been longing for without the inconvenience of being confined to an island. YOUR DREAM VACATION IS JUST A CLICK AWAY.....
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
We lived in the neighborhood for 15 years before being able to buy the land we had fallen in love with. 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 wanted old world character as well as up-to-the-minute conveniences and amenities. We employed many artisans to finish the interior spaces and incorporate arcitectural elements we have collected over the years. Buildin was a real labor of love for us and we look forward to having you as our guests someday.

We are so thankful to Kathryn and Don for a beautiful home for our family to share and enjoy. Our crew voted - This is our best vacation yet!
There are hundreds of incredible things to do in Malibu, and staying at Villa Malibu is one of them.
Exquisite, totally pristine and unique, with ocean views from every window and sophisticated amenities : the owners provide you with everything but the sea and sand ( just minutes walk down the hill ).
This is the paradise you've been looking for, just a short drive outside Los Angeles.
The owners are so attentive and sweet. You'll feel right at home in this luxury rental by the sea.
This house is phenomenal. Perfect in every way. Truly, this home is reason enough to plan a trip to Malibu. Every space - indoor and out - is like a work of art, with countless interesting, luxurious and clever features. The setting is heavenly...up on the hill with a great, wide view but close enough to the surf to hear and almost feel the Pacific. Kathryn and Don were wonderful hosts, making certain that we were comfortable and familiar with how everything worked. This came in handy, since we ended up barely leaving the house! The wonderful Vintage Grocery store is a quick drive (5 minutes), and the Malibu Pier, Nobu, etc, is a spectacular 25 minute ride. We highly recommend the Malibu Farm restaurant at the beginning of the pier...beachy, beautiful and really great and inventive menu...and vegan friendly! :) This is THE place to stay in Malibu!
This home was a dream come true. I felt like I was in Tuscany. The decor, the balconies, the whole ambiance of the property was ethereal. So Beautiful, spacious and relaxing. The sounds of the surf lull you to sleep at night and in the morning have coffee on your outdoor terraces watching the whales go by. It was a treat, I never wanted to leave the house. The house was immaculate, all the necessities you need are at your fingertips. The owners are delightful and on hand should you have any questions. Words cannot express how truly wonderful this experience was. If you love sunny drives up the PCH this is it! I will be back.
My friends and I rented this lovely home for 5 days this February. The pictures on line don't do it justice, it is absolutely beautiful. The livingroom boasts a 70 inch tv which we fully enjoyed when we were there (we were out a lot) and the kitchen was a dream come true. Whatever you needed to create your own culinary masterpiece was there! Our last day we just stayed in and relaxed on the terrace appreciating the beautiful sunset, it was a perfect ending to our stay. The hosts were very helpful and friendly and were always available if we needed anything. Because of the beautiful art pieces throughout and the hardwood floors I would hesitate to bring children but I would highly recommend rental for adults who just want to relax and enjoy the luxury of a home that offers everything from a gourmet kitchen to a heated towel bar.
Kathryn, thank you. It was such a wonderful place to get my head together, and relax. Waking up to see the views, enjoying coffee at the kitchen table, watching the ships come in and out of LA... just beautiful. And the house - you have an amazing eye for detail. I could easily have felt I was in the south of France.
My daughter loved living like a princess in your master suite - said the bathroom was twice the size of her dorm :-)
If I'm ever in that part of the world again, I'm hoping that we can stay there again.
We were very impressed and satisfied. We were greeted by the owners with a grand tour that made sure we could use all of the electronics and home systems. The space was immaculate - like a model home and better. Everything we needed was thought of.
Fabulous views and we were blessed with great weather. We will definitely consider a return stay which extremely rare for us because the world has many wonderful places to visit.
We have recommended this home to friends and recommend it to you.
