About Chris Blakely

The property, situated on a hidden cove in West Malibu, has been in the owners' family since 1948. The house was redesigned in 1992 by noted architect Ed Niles. Owned by two brothers since 2010, the house has been refurbished inside and out. Travertine floors upstairs were refinished in September 2015, and new sliding screen doors for the picture windows were installed in November 2015.

Chris Blakely purchased this house in 1948

Why Chris Blakely chose Malibu

This secluded beach is in one of the most beautiful coves in all of Malibu. That is why it has been chosen as a film location by celebrities. It is conveniently close to Zuma Beach, Trancas, and Point Dume to the south, Leo Carrillo, County Line and Neptune's Net to the north.

We are a short drive up the coast from the Malibu Pier, Surfrider Beach, the Malibu Colony, Pepperdine University, Geoffrey's Restaurant and Paradise Cove.

What makes this house unique

Perfect location for swimming, kayaking, surfing, diving, fishing, standup paddling, skimboarding, windsurfing, or just relaxing!

Unique set-up can accommodate more than one family.

3.5 miles from Trancas Canyon/Broad Beach shopping center.

Close to shops and restaurants on Westward Beach, Heathercliff Road and Kanan/Dume.

Little known fact: during the filming of the movie 'The Fan' the studio rented the house to provide 'green rooms' for actors Robert De Niro and Wesley Snipes.

Perfect location with perfect view!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second year at Chris's place. The location in Malibu is ideal and the beach access is exactly as described. It's like having your own private quarter mile of beach.. Sunset's are picturesque and Chris is a perfect host. I stayed in the private downstairs and kids upstairs. I'm already booked for next year..A+++

Amazing Private Cove

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here, a lot. The owner is very responsive. The house has a great set-up in that there is a separate living area downstairs, which allowed us to have a little distance from our teens - perfect! And the beach is amazing, a gorgeous private cove with virtually no-one ever on it.

Perfect Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home on the beach in Malibu. The home is right on the beach, it has amazing views with dolphins swimming out front! The house has everything for a fun vacation, including outdoor shower and lots of beach toys. The layout worked well for parents with college kids and there's lots of room for a group to gather at mealtime. The owner was very helpful with tips about local grocery stores and restaurants. Perfect stay!

Très belles vacances!!

  • 4 of 5

La maison est très belle et magnifiquement bien située. On ne pourrait être plus près de la mer et il y a aussi tout ce qu'il faut à 5km pour l'épicerie et le reste. Il y a aussi de très agréables restaurants à proximité. Le Proprietaire etait très gentil et disponible pour toutes questions. Le fait que la maison soit séparée en deux appartements à grandement contribué au sentiment d'intimité de mes parents qui étaient en haut et mon fils et moi dans l'appartement du bas. Je n'hésiterais pas une seconde à y retourner!! ☀️🌵👏

Best Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Great house on a great beach. Amazing views and the sound of the surf at night. Everything you need - just add groceries and settle in. Shopping nearby and good restaurants.

Plus the best sunsets you'll ever see.

Chris is the best!

We loved our stay!!

Spectacular Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

My family from Minnesota had a wonderful Thanksgiving. This home was very clean and so well maintained. Chris the owner had the lights on to welcome us as we arrived and a great bottle of champagne to help cheer the holiday. The amount of detailed instructions helped transition into the home very easily. Deck and patio both offered wonderful views of the ocean and sunsets. The stairs made easy access to the sandy beach. Great surfing in front of the home! With the shops at Trances Country Market so close and Vintage Grocers making the food needs for the week so easy I high recommend this home for any time to rent. We had such a wonderful and relaxing week all agreed to come back for Thanksgiving 2016. Thanks Chris for all your help to make our holiday special!
