We are a husband and wife team of Malibu local architect and builder for over 21 years. We enjoy building exquisite estates for ourselves and clients alike and built this mansion (Villa Calcare) for primarily our own use in year 2005. We imported the finest hand cut limestone flooring, planters, fountains and decorative pieces from Italy, hence the name 'Villa Calcare' which means 'Limestone villa' in Italian. We have raised a family of two wonderful children in Malibu. We have lived in this estate for three years before we moved on to the next one. We would love to have other guests share and enjoy memorable time in Villa Calcare & its beach as we did.
Villa Calcare purchased this estate in 2005
As mentioned earlier we purchased the land, designed and built this estate from ground-up since we are local architect and builders. When we first saw this property we fell in love with its abundant 3.5 acre size with a head-on ocean view, its private gated deeded beach access, and its easy access to pacific coast highway.
Easy access to the pacific coast highway, 2 minute walking distance to our own private gated deeded beach access on Broad beach, 2 minute drive to grocery shopping center, 10 minute drive to Malibu City Center (3 outdoor malls and cinema) and celebrity seen, surfing world famous Malibu beaches, Malibu pier & fishing.
We had a lovely time at your Villa! The location and house worked out great for our group and thank's for returning the security deposit so
Although we weren't able to stay at their villa this time, this group was really a pleasure to work with. They were prompt, courteous and considerate. We ended up needing to stay in a different city/location, but working with Hana and the owners made it so that I'm looking forward to our next vacation with the hope of being able to stay at one of their places. The homes look absolutely amazing - and the fact that the owners and their representatives are so considerate would definitely make it a win-win situation. Thank you!
My friends and I were looking for a property in Malibu with all the amenities and this property exceeded our expectations. From my initial inquiry and throughout the stay, Mehrdad/Rosie/Hana were very responsive and accommodating. The kitchen and outdoor grill set-up was first class and allowed us to cook meals without every having to leave the house. The rooms were simply amazing with all the upstairs rooms having balcony access and plenty of breeze. I strongly urge anyone considering a vacation home or even a weekend getaway to choose this property.
I travel to Malibu for vacation in August typically every year. I also try to stay at new unique houses each time I go. Villa Calcare was absolutely beautiful. The property has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The pool and hot tub are amazing and the views are great from every room. The bedrooms are very spacious with plenty of room and each bathroom with the exception of one has a great shower with built-in sauna. This is the ideal vacation house to rent in Malibu if you have 5 or more guests or a large family. The in-house movie theater with reclining leather seats was another great touch. Access to broad beach is also less than 5 minutes away and is within walking distance. Lastly, if you like to cook, the kitchen has everything you will need and is decked out with a Viking gas range and Viking refrigerator. There is also an outdoor grill at the pool. If you are planning on dining out, there are plenty of restaurants within a 10-15 minute radius.
It's difficult to criticize anything about this property, but in the interest of providing the best review I can, I will list some things that others may wish to know. The downside of being literally right off PCH is that you *will* hear traffic in the morning. It can be heard from every room and there is nothing you can do about that if you are a light sleeper. Also, if you like to sleep in on vacation, don't anticipate sleeping past 8 am. There are no blackout curtains and the drapes are very light and easily allow the sun to brighten every room in the morning. These were really the only things that were an issue for me during my stay.
Our families stayed here for our wedding weekend and we had our reception here. It was beyond perfect! Mehrdad, Rosie and FiFi were not only communicative and accommodating but so friendly and warm. That made our wedding experience even more blissful! The beach is a short walk away too. They have everything you need for a pool and beach side vacation. We ecstatically recommend!
Amazing house ! Waking up to the beautiful views from just about anywhere in the house was a treat we already miss. A wonderful experience, staff (Fifi) was easy to work with and very helpful. Rosie the owner met us and gave us the guided tour. Grounds were well maintained, house was neat and clean. Everything worked as described.
Look forward to another stay at this one of a kind home!
I'm a Los Angeles Record Producer of major label artists, and wanted to have a company retreat in a special environment for the weekend. Everyone at Villa Calcare worked so hard to make my private Music Success Retreat event truly special. The house is simply majestic, and grand, but we also felt warm, family vibes when you stayed there. (And we'll be back again!)
There is so many nooks and crannies to this place, that it's' easy to have an event where several separate conversations can take place simultaneously. I like that. And there are also large rooms where we can have everybody in our party gather. We had 28 people and our Music Success weekend was a raging success!
