The Artist's House at Malibu Island is a 3-bedroom house high above the Pacific Ocean in the Santa Monica Mountains with sweeping mountain and ocean views.

A beautiful wood deck wraps around the back end of the house and is the perfect spot for your morning coffee overlooking the magnificent hills and ocean.

The outdoor patio is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views. There are tables and comfy chairs to sit and talk or entertain.

Fantastic space and amenities! Great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

The reservation and booking process was almost hassle free and Chantal is a pleasure to talk to. We got to the house incredibly late at night but everything was ready for us to settle in to. As a group of 9 we had a ample common space to hang out in and enough privacy to relax alone in as well. The bath tub was great to lounge in the summer heat.

We rented this in 2014, before the new renovations the owner has made and we LOVED it!! It's even better now!! It was so remote and relaxing and we loved it so much. It was definitely an amazing experience staying here. The hot tub was my favorite part. And the outdoor shower. I definitely recommend staying here. It is worth every penny!

pleasant little house with a nice view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the little house on Chantal's property. The house has large open windows with a view of the valley and the ocean in the distance and a pool in the back yard. We were looking for a secluded/quiet spot to get away for an extended weekend and this place turned out to be perfect. Everything was cozy and comfortable and the house had the necessities(coffee maker, utensils, wifi) Some things to note: You probably wouldn't want to book more than 3 people in this room. It's at least a 20 minute drive from the beach. It's a bit of a drive to a grocery store.

A Rare and Beautiful Oasis Reasonably Priced

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazingly beautiful oasis near the Ventura County line just up the canyon from Zuma Beach. From our first impression driving up the winding gravel drive and viewing the most amazing giant blue urn sitting at the fork up to our guest house with private pool, we knew we had selected the right Malibu property for us. The privacy was perfect and just the way we like things. The view down the canyon to the ocean was magnificent. We enjoyed sitting on our pool deck at night looking at the stars. The mornings were especially lovely with birds chirping and the sun spraying gorgeous light across this peaceful, lush environment. The myriad of tropical plants in every direction really has to be seen to be believed. It is clear Chantal loves gardening. We travel often to the Caribbean and felt like we were there in the midst of Chantal's gardens. She is a lovely and friendly lady, just one of the rare gems you could visit with for hours. But, she leaves you alone, unless you engage her. She's a terrific host. The front g
