I'm a fun passionate and exciting woman who loves adventure. I enjoy traveling to new destinations and meeting new people, my neighbor calls me a pioneer. I'm passionate about every thing I do. I'm a very gracious host and I love to entertain and make my guests feel at home. Some of my favorite books are 'Sidhartha',' Mists of Avalon', 'Modoc' and 'Women who run with the Wolves'. Actually I use to have 3 wolves and was known as the Wolf Woman of Malibu. I AM a woman who runs with the wolves literally..lol!. I've lived in London, Paris, Milan, NYC, Toronto, LA and now Malibu and have traveled all over the world. I have to say I was happiest in Italy and fell in love with Portafino ...loved the cave with the elevator soooo James Bond!!!!! Some of my favorite movies are Matrix, The Gladiator, Truly Madly Deeply and of course Dances with Wolves...dah!!! I LOVE ALL MUSIC... the language of the soul and healthy organic food. Love hanging with friends dancing and YOGA!!! Life is a roller coaster, the bigger the life the wilder the ride...YEEEEEHAAAAAAAA!!!
Why Leslie Gail chose Malibu
It was love at first sight!!!! When I first came to LA I walked up Benedict Canyon and fell in love with being on top of the mountain. I decided in that moment that's where I wanted to live. Shortly there after I was invited to this property and fell in love instantly as though I'd come home. There wasn't a finished house at the time but I had a vision of what it was going to look like finished and have been working on it ever since. Getting this property wasn't easy however it was meant to be as it is now mine. It's a loooooong story, perhaps I'll tell you when you come to visit..
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The views here are breathtaking! You have 360 views and no matter how many times I see this view it takes my breath away! The views are rivaled only by the sunsets which are the real treasures of this earth! You will not be disappointed!!

This place was absolutely perfect with such class and originality. Leslie was an incredible host!
Our Stay Was Enchanting and Healing
From the moment we drove up the “driveway” And saw Leslie waiting for us to arrive, we knew our stay would be magical.
She immediately welcomed us to her magical retrewt
After looking at literally dozens of properties, we finally decided on Leslie’s cute little cottage in the wine country. When we arrived, it became apparent that this place was well beyond “cute.”
Spacious outdoor accommodations were filled with beauty and peacefulness, a huge swimming pool, jacuzzi, greenery and scenery.
Leslie was easy to deal with, charming, delightful and helpful. Her mountaintop oasis was perfectly located for us — just minutes away from every place we wanted to go, but without all of the noise and cultural clutter so common closer to the PCH.
We highly recommend staying here and plan to do so again ourselves! The two bedroom indoor space is quaint and comfortable, with a small kitchen, living room, and two well-appointed bathrooms. Everything you need is there, including some amenities you don’t, such as the large teak indoor sauna and the cool outdoor bathtub!
There are too many nice touches to list, but the quality of the place and its modern amenities were evident and really appreciated.
Looking for the perfect place to spend a week in Malibu is challenging and fraught with fear of the unknown. We feel incredibly fortunate to have found the perfect place for us, and to have a wonderful new friend in Leslie.

We had an amazing time at this property. The pictures do not do just to the property, and the views, justice (they never do). Everything was immaculate, from the house, to the pool, to the landscaping. The owner was polite, helpful, and professional; we asked for suggestions on local spots to eat and grab drinks and she led us to the best places! Overall great experience, would highly recommend!
An Incredible home in an exquisite setting!
This home is a gem, and we could not have enjoyed it more....we will definitely be back. The owner Leslie was extremely attentive to all of our needs, and the property, views, and location are perfect for a short weekend, or extended stay. We absolutely loved it!
Beautiful setting, fantastic water!
We had a wonderful experience. The water and environment was a perfect place to rest and gather good energy. Leslie was available as needed and helpful in many ways. The home was bigger than the pictures could convey and the space felt great indoors and out. Fyi: propane for heating the pool and spa is extra.
Great having you Peggy and glad you enjoyed your birthday weekend here. :))
