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
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.
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!
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.
Kathryn and Don could not have been more perfect hosts for our family weekend stay in their beautiful villa.
Malibu offers so many great things to do but there were times when all we wanted to do was enjoy the scenic garden and decks with phenomenal ocean views at the villa... It's truly the perfect place to unwind and relax with a Mediterranean or Tuscan-like ambiance in every room. Especially the view from the hot tub.. it feels more like the Greek isles than Southern CA!
Every time we've stayed in AirBnB/VRBO's, there's always an appliance or an item you wish the house had. Not here! Kathryn and Don went above and beyond the call of duty with all the everyday necessities the villa provides... Kitchen/cooking equipment, beach chairs/towels, bathroom products for showering, you name it, they have it, so no need to bring anything aside from a change of clothes and a bathing suit!
Within walking distance was the County Line Beach and a short drive away was El Matador beach where my mother loved searching for sea glass. We did plenty of hiking near Corral Canyon (the Jim Morrison cave is at the end of the windy Corral Canyon Rd) and stopped by the roadside seafood shack, Malibu Seafood, for some tremendous fish tacos. Malibu Wines was a perfect winery to visit and a short 15-20 min drive from the villa. Not to mention, keep an eye out for Street Food Cinema nights at the King Gillette Ranch where we saw JAWS under the stars, couldn't have been any more perfect.
A big thank you again to Kathryn and Don... hopefully we'll be back sooner rather than later!
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.
