About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath with ocean views from every room, close to beach

Lease the Life! Live the Life! Experience the Life at Casa de la Nueva Vida! (It’s the house of new life!) The experience will change your life!! Memories will be made.

My home had an uplift in May 2016 when I added many new furniture pieces in two bedrooms, living room and dining room! All new queen- size pillow-top mattresses! I offer fresh white linens on the beds and fresh white towels in the baths. You will feel comfortable with the modern, upgraded, open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, picturesque windows which allow for the sweeping-ocean and mountain views to explode. Turn your head and you will smell pink Jasmine flowers, deep pink tropical Bougainvillea plants, Birds of Paradise, Palm trees and dark purple ground cover. Enjoy nature at its best, then, hike, swim, walk, read, cook, shop and relax! This home features a close-in location in mid-Malibu with WI-FI connection.

Truly relax in this casual, beach-style, yet elegant home. Prepare to spend a magical stay of sun-filled days as this home faces east and is light and bright all day. There is no better place in Malibu to enjoy the nature you see from this deck while previewing the sunset with a glass of champagne or tall glass of ice tea. There is a gas barbeque to prepare your evening meals.

The chef’s gourmet kitchen is a real plus for this home. From the kitchen you will see and smell landscaping as well as see the brilliant ocean views. You will take your food straight from the kitchen to the open deck and enjoy all meals previewing the expansive blue pacific.

There is one big and expansive great room where you can cozy up near the fireplace as you watch your favorite movies on a Sony flat screen TV. There are books to read as you relax in this serene setting. A DVD player and full stereo system if music is your thing!

Travelers from around the world have visited this vacation home. The home features a collection of trinkets from various countries such as Germany; Munich, Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, the Hague, Uganda, Romania, Panama, El Salvador, Venezuela, Mexico, Cairo and Dubai. Visitors from the US have come from Widbey Island, Washington, California, (Dana Point, Napa Valley, San Francisco, Lake of the Pines, Palm Springs, San Diego,) and St. Louis, Missouri to name a few travelers who enjoyed this peaceful, charming and exquisite vacation home.

Pepperdine families have visited often while visiting their students. Many come for graduation, which leaves a very positive legacy in this home.The home even hosted a Pepperdine graduation luncheon! It is fun to receive more souvenirs/collectibles/trinkets from my next visitors, vacationers and travelers.

Please call me, Let's talk!!!

Thank for reviewing my home!

About Beverly Taki

This home was purchased in 1981 as a family home. My son was raised here and thus, the home carries a long list of positive memories over the years. I've seen Malibu grow, I've seen this neighborhood grow and I love this home and the peace it offers me carried within the walls. I enjoy sharing my little piece of paradise with travelers all over the world.

Why Beverly Taki chose Los Angeles County

This property is called Casa de la Nueva Vida, the House of New Life!! Anyone who enters the front door immediately views the blue pacific and the energy eludes new life to all that enter! Another reason to select this property over others is that it's not just a permanent vacation rental home. It's my personal home that I enjoy sharing with visitors from all over the world who want to enjoy all that Malibu has to offer.

Why not Live the Life! Rent the Life! and Experience the Life at Casa de la Nueva Vida! The experience will change your life!!

What makes this house unique

This is not a full time vacation home, bought and used solely for vacationers. This is a personal home, with the look and feel of a home, which brings it's warmth to all travelers and their families. The home is conveniently located in the center of Malibu. It is easy to get to the Malibu shopping area, easy to get to the beach, downtown LA of the San Fernando Valley! The home is unique because it is loved and cared for and wants others to enjoy the beauty and environment that will make you wanting to come back for another visit!

Amazingly serene. Exactly what we ordered!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect and we hope we can stay again. The house was comfortable and the views endless. The owner is gracious and allowed us to check in any time and checkout late. Loved the location and waking up to the ocean views.

Owner's Response: I feel I am in the hospitality customer serving business, I am not just leasing out my home. I try to accommodate all special requests and if I can arrange with housekeeping, yes, I do try to accommodate early arrivals and late departures, if it can fit in the mix with other reservations for the home.

Happily Surprised with all this home had to offer us!

  • 5 of 5

We came from the Midwest; we had never been to California. Malibu was a wonderful place to land. Driving along the Pacific Coast Highway, looking at the ocean was our first surprise. When we pulled in the driveway of the home, we experienced our second surprise! When we got out of our car, the views were striking! We walked into the home and we were just in aw!! The home is just lovely! The views from every single room are amazing! We were pleasantly surprised that the home perfectly matched the description in the ad. We had a fabulous visit; we loved Malibu and will be back! We were very pleased how Beverly responded and worked to accommodate all of our needs. This was a memorable experience!

Owner's Response: I came from the Midwest too, so I know how it feels to suddenly arrive in Malibu from the flat land. I always enjoy it when vacationers from the Midwest visit my home. Thanks, Chris for leaving the cute little token in my traveler's collection! Please come back!

Beautiful Home with an Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

We had my 40th birthday celebration/wine tasting weekend in Malibu and stayed here. Initial impression: Beautiful! The home is tastefully decorated with all of the amenities that you could ask for as well as all the comforts of home. The views are absolutely amazing and despite the colder time of year, we enjoyed quite a bit of time on the deck. We will definitely be back and would recommend this home to anyone staying in the Malibu area!

Owner's Response: Thanks Courtney for visiting my piece of paradise! So many birthday celebrations have taken place at my home and yes, the wineries in the area have become very popular attractions! I much prefer sitting on my upper deck and enjoying wine there as the sun sets!!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay a couple of weeks ago! Property was clean, cozy, and as described. We had a couple of dinners at the house with our family in town and everyone raved about the view. Beverly provided clear and to the point instructions for check in and check out. She had cute little instructions regarding WiFi and extra tips about the space throughout the house in fun frames. Would definitely recommend to any looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway in Malibu. It was a short drive down the beach!

Thanks for a wonderful stay Beverly! My family and I will most definitely be back!

relaxing, comfortable, great central location, beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time at this home. The owner responded to all my e-mails immediately - answering questions and providing information on hikes and places to dine. She was extremely pleasant to work with. The house is in a very lovely, quiet neighborhood off the beaten path. It is up a long, curvy road that provides beautiful views (but a little tricky when it's dark). It passes by one of the entrances to the Solstice Canyon. The house has gorgeous views of the canyon and water from 2 the back decks. The on line photos accurately depict the home - it is as open, sunny and spacious as it looks. Everyone can be together without being on top of each other. This is definitely the kind of home you could stay for long periods of time. The owner mentioned that she was getting new beds and sofa bed soon so I won't comment on the mattresses etc. The back desks are great. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking, baking etc. needs. There are also beach supplies (towels, cooler, umbrellas, beach toys). I would very highly recommend this clean, modern, comfortable home unless you are nervous about driving on high, winding roads. I would have liked to give it 4.9 stars rather than 4 ( just slightly below perfect!)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for visiting and enjoying my piece of paradise. Yes, I am pleased to announce that I have removed the sofa bed that served many quests. I now have brand new queen-size beds and mattresses in all three bedrooms!! As of May 18th, I have added brand new furniture in bedrooms 2 and 3! I am proud to say that the upgrades just make the home shine!! I will work on getting better photography of these rooms soon!

Had a marvelous and relaxing time in this lovely home with magnificent ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

We gathered for a graduation celebration with three generations of family. We prepared our own meals in the beautiful and well supplied kitchen and were able to enjoy eating in a relaxing environment with a lovely view. We were close to the Pepperdine campus so we could easily go back to the house in between events.

Owner's Response: I love Pepperdine alums and family to share my home! The Ocean views and proximity to Pepperdine University campus makes this property "The gift that keeps on giving!" On May 10, 2016, the home underwent some major upgrades! Now all three bedrooms feature new queen size pillow-top mattresses! The sleeper sofa that served me well for many vacationers has found a new home and now all my guests can enjoy queen- size comfy, cozy, firm mattresses for a super nights sleep in a peaceful environment, where no sounds are heard at night!! Please enjoy my bit of paradise!
