About Mehrdad Sahafi

We are husband & wife team of Malibu. Local architect and builder for over 24 years. We enjoy building exquisite estates for ourselves & clients alike & built this mansion (Villa Shiraz) for primarily our own use in year 2007. We would love to have other guests share & enjoy memorable time in Villa Shiraz & its mountain/vineyard views.

Mehrdad Sahafi purchased this villa in 2007

Why Mehrdad Sahafi chose Malibu

As mentioned earlier, we purchased the land, designed and built this estate from ground up since we are local architect and builders. We fell in love with its location surrounded by vineyards and its unobstructed panoramic mountain, vineyard, Saddle Peak & canyon views.

What makes this villa unique

Watching our favorite movies in the most sophisticated indoor theaters ever built, swimming in the infinity pool and used of spa wrapping around the Villa (butting right next to it). Enjoy wine tasting from your own private wine cellar while watching some of the most amazing sunsets overlooking a glorious panoramic unobstructed mountain & canyon views, the neighboring vineyards and Saddle Rock. We've enjoyed making our own pizzas, breads, etc., in the wood burning pizza oven and entertaining families and friends. Great place for entertainment.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely stunning with a view! We only stayed one evening as that is all that was available at the last minute. The owners and property manager were nice enough to full a friends bucket list ...My best friend has brain cancer and would never imagine staying in a home like was perfect.

I will definitely return to this home for a longer stay!

I cannot say enough good things about this lovely property and the charming woman and her family who built it with love from the ground up! This destination is the perfect getaway from the rat race of LA being that it's just far enough outside of town to feel like a vacation but not too far to deal with emergencies at home/work, should they arise. Everything about this place is grand and luxurious while still feeling cozy and warm. I stayed the weekend with a few guests for my 32 birthday and we were still discovering interesting things about the place when we left Monday morning (The waterfall into the hot tub is amazing and one of the guest bathrooms has a TV in it!). Also, the view from the shower is more beautiful than most living room views in the Hollywood Hills so you can imagine what it's like from the infinity pool at sunset...

From the fountain in the driveway to the garden beyond the deck, I'd recommend this place to anyone who wants to play and relax (within reason: be sweet) in an environment that takes you out of the daily grind and into a tranquil kind of paradise in the mountains of Malibu. Also, it seems like the perfect place to get your head back on straight after a hard time. :)

I look forward to staying here again!

We had the PERFECT intimate wedding at the Villa Shiraz

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Fifi, Rosie and Mehrdad for a wonderful stay at the Villa Shiraz. The Villa was even more beautiful in person than in photos if you can believe it. We had a small intimate wedding at the Villa and could not have been more pleased. All of our guests were in awe of the spectacular setting and the beautiful villa. Fifi, Rosie and Mehrdad were very accommodating and very quick to respond to any questions we had regarding our wedding there. They were very up front with everything and we had no surprises. Our deposit was also sent back to us very quickly. We can't wait to stay again. Thank you guys for everything!

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

Mehrdad, Rosie & Fifi- Thanks you so much for having such a beautiful place for our family get together for four days at Villa Shiraz. The house was way more than we expected. The theater, the view, the entire place was first class. We intended to hang around the beach & Malibu but fell in love with Villa Shiraz. We hardly wanted to leave the house. We even had a chef one night come in to cook since no one wanted to leave Villa. Our weekend was a truly great event, much to do with Villa. Truly recommend for a family get together.Hope we can come back. JW
