Rock House

Our tranquil Encinal Bluff Cottage, Inspired by an Artist. Located approximately 150 yards from the PCH on a gated driveway. The only sounds heard from the house are those of nature and crashing waves.

Our home is approximately 40’ above the water with spectacular white water views. Watch the surfers, dolphins, seals, Gray Whales and other wild life right from our house. A short stroll down the driveway to the private beach below, provides seclusion and peace on the sandy beach.

Our home is approximately 2400 square feet, with a 2 car garage. A hot tub is strategically placed on the edge of the bluff to provide the most amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, Point Dume and beyond.

Lie in the master king sized bed and watch the sunrise over Point Dume. The master bedroom is also equipped with a full walk-in closet and the bathroom includes jacuzzi tub and steam shower.

About Ronald Jenny

Jane is an artist and a designer and Ron is a contractor. They both have teamed up over the last forty years to build homes with balance and flow that they and visitors can enjoy. It is like creating a feeling that is appealing to the senses. Over the years with Jane’s visions and Ron’s construction ability and help from various architects, several of their homes have been awarded; have been in charity events for architectural walks and in publications.

Ronald Jenny purchased this house in 1999

Why Ronald Jenny chose Western Malibu

Jane and I have lived in Malibu for thirty five years and have worked our way to what we feel is the best location we could possibly be. Encinal Bluff is a very spiritual place, we are off the PCH so do not get the highway noise and above the beach where we have privacy. Sitting on the deck it is a constant show of wild life and other, incredible birds, dolphin, seals, whales and the occasional surfer. We named our home the rock house because it is build with granite imported from the Lake Tahoe area. Some people say it looks like a home that could be in Yosemite.

The Jenny's Malibu retreat was just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. It was a perfect family vacation. The property is beautiful. The house is absolutely stocked with anything you might need. It was incredible to fall asleep listening to the sound of crashing waves.

Lovely, very special place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at Ron's house in July 2016. The house was perfect, nothing missing and all we could wish for a relaxing stay at the beach, the location and views amazing. We loved the easy access to the beach. A very special place. Debbie was very helpful and it was a pleasure to work with her.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a wonderful place to spend your vacation. I booked for four nights and called Ron and asked if we could stay another three nights and I was so glad when it was available. I felt at home immediately in this home and the grounds are amazing. We spent every morning in the jacuzzi with our coffee, every afternoon on the beach with our dog, and every evening in the Adirondack chairs with a cocktail. Be sure to bring some good shoes to get to the beach. The boulders can be super slippery! Can't wait to come back again. Be sure to take some to visit the Malibu Cafe up in the hills. We go every time we are in Malibu. A fun drive and really unique place to do lunch or dinner.

Owner's Response: We are so glad your family enjoyed their stay. Thank you for the good review and also the wonderful note and photos. I hope you don't mind if I share.----------------------------------------------- "Dear Jane and Ron, We just returned from your house today and wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved every details about the house and had a very hard time leaving it... A few things that will stay with us: the amazing grounds, the red flowering bush, walks on the beach at at sunrise with the dog (the tides were timed perfectly! usually just me but managed to drag a few more peeps as the week went one), the afternoon family beach walk, the chess table, morning coffee in the adirondak chairs, s'moores in the firepit, the parakeets/parrots on top of the palm tree, hanging out in the hot tub, the view, the full moon, all the little details of the home, your door stops variety, the beautiful glasses, the glass rack, Jane's art, the landscaping, the sound system, and so much more I am forgetting right now. We also wanted to thank Debbie for making sure we were well oriented the first day. We loved her food recommendations and appreciated her checking in after a few days."

Paradise in Malibu

  • 5 of 5

The views from this home are incredible. It is situated up on a bluff overlooking a quiet beach. The outdoor area is completely private and has everything you need so there is no need to even leave the property. If you wish to venture out, all of the best restaurants are a short drive. The location is perfect as you are close enough to everything Malibu has to offer without being in all of the congestion of the downtown area. The home is meticulously maintained and the owners made the entire renting process as easy as possible. Ron and Jane, thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us!
