About P.J. Pettiette and Claudie Viguerie

I am born in Paris, France. I founded magazines dedicated to natural medicine and moved to Malibu few years ago. I am an epicurian and love gardening, juicing, cooking, and sharing a good bottle of Pinot Noir with friends. I love reading and work in the movie industry.

P.J. Pettiette and Claudie Viguerie purchased this house in 1995

Why P.J. Pettiette and Claudie Viguerie chose Los Angeles County

Malibu is the ultimate place if you love nature and Los Angeles. It is close to the city but once I am home, I feel in a very special place. It is quite difficult to describe the quality of life in Malibu. This is THE place for individuals and it suits me!

What makes this house unique

180º ocean view on one side, and beautiful grounds full of delightful fragrances and flowers. Sauna, steam room, outdoor Jacuzzi (warm and relaxing or cold plunge experience).

All bedrooms are suites. Three of them have private access.

You can step out of the house very easily in the garden or onto the terraces. It is very sunny.

The dinning room has 3 sliding doors that can be fully open.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your presence is with us even though you are afar (in France). There is a connection while staying in your exquisite home. I believe I have seen most of the DVD movies and read many of the books on the shelves. There are other things: the gardens, the artwork, and the use of space.

My Dad shuffles around the house making statements like "everywhere you stand, there is a special feeling". Or in a more North Dakotan way "well, this house is just something else". My 9 year old stated: "This place is the coolest place I have ever been". Being the advanced age of 9, that is something else :) Yesterday we had a lovely lunch at Geoffrey's. It gave us the flavor of Malibu life. Again, exquisite. Today we were off to the beach. 80's, sunny, with little wind. Magnifique!

Perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had seven adults and more than enough space for everyone. The house is amazing, the location is ideal, and PJ was a pleasure to work with. This was our first time renting a vacation home and it couldn't have been a better experience. Can't wait to visit again!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had five adults and three teenagers stay at the home in June. The house and location were perfect. The house was clean and PJ was very helpful and responsive to all of our questions. We enjoyed breakfasts on the upstairs deck in the morning, lounging by the hot tub in the afternoon and drinks on the bottom deck at night. The view of the ocean and mountains was amazing. We all loved hiking and going to the beach in Malibu. We recommend Zuma Beach and the hike at Point Dume nearby. It was great being close to Santa Monica as well. Overall, it was a great experience and we all highly recommend staying at this house.

Owner's Response: I completely enjoyed meeting you and your family and am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the property as well as your entire experience in the Malibu area. Thanks for giving future renters the hiking ideas as they often ask. Your family was so great to meet and I had a great time meeting you. Thanks for choosing La Maison De Malibu and I hope it chased away some of those winter blues. Please come again even if you are just passing through and I would love to find a way to give you a night to stay. P.J.

Wonderful time in Malibu

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent four nights at PJ's home in the hills of Malibu and I can't say enough good things about it. It was truly a wonderful few days relaxing, cooking, going into town a few times and enjoying the views, jacuzzi, weather and company. Couldn't have asked for more. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. May do it again some time. PJ was a wonderful and very helpful host. You won't be disappointed.

New Year's Week in Malibu

  • 5 of 5

My kids, and grandkids an I stayed in Cote D'Azur Flair for the week of New Years.

The view is spectacular, and the accommodations were great. The home is set off the cliffs overlooking Malibu. The house is full of light, and most of the walls collapse to shear open spaces. The sauna, steam room and spa were magnificent. Even on a cold day.

I look forward to coming again next year.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you next year.

Gorgeous and relaxing space that was perfect for privacy and our group

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house looking for a space that accommodate my sister and her bridal party and their significant others all in one place. Since we were coming from all over the US, we wanted to have a space where we could make the most of our limited time together during the wedding weekend. The 4 bedrooms, pull out couch, and a feather bed on two pushed together lounges was the perfect setup in order to fit us all in! We partially wished we were taking our getting ready for the wedding photos here on the property instead of the venue because this house is so beautiful and so full of light.

PJ was amazing in sending us very detailed directions over email to the house to make sure we would be able to find it, including turn by turn and meeting us at the end of the driveway because the house is up a driveway immediately after a turn and easy to miss. Since we had the foresight to print it out in our car, we had no problems although 2 other car loads missed it and had to turn around (also because they didn't have nice PJ waving the car down to direct to the house!).

PJ gave us a grand tour of the home with all the details on little tips here or there of how to work the garage door walls of the masters or the sauna or even the shades of every room or the way water drips in the kitchen sink- you know, all the little quirks of a house that you don't know until you've been there a while. PJ gave us the heads up on all of it! We had no problem with the sauna, hot tub, or steam shower and let me emphasize that if you stay here, you should make sure to use it at least once - some of the visitors used it everyday, sometimes twice a day and used the house as a spa day! In the morning, we opened the side doors in the dining area to have an amazing breakfast we had made with the many pots and pans in the kitchen to dine al fresco and it was glorious.

The area is extremely quiet and peaceful and the beds extremely comfortable so we felt well rested every night, even when we were up in the wee hours talking or working on wedding tasks. We were very sad to leave, wishing we had booked it for longer. It's a perfect location of being far enough away for privacy but just a short 15 minute drive to the beach or shops and restaurants.

The only thing to be careful of is that there is barely any phone reception here, so be prepared when you arrive to log into their strong wireless signal here and use that for calls!

Owner's Response: Pechluck, what a honor it was to have your event here and be the residence for your friend who was the bride and her friends and family. Not only was it a great experience but you truly seemed to enjoy everything the house and property has to offer. Thanks for the wonderful review and I hope you consider us for the anniversary retreat for all the friends or just for yourselves! P.J.

Spa Retreat With Outstanding Views!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into this beautiful home, we felt like we were in our very own spa retreat. P.J. is absolutely wonderful, making you feel welcome at this magnificently unique location, perched up in the hills, with expansive ocean views. Although the drive down to the Pacific Coast Highway is only ten minutes, you are in your own enclave surrounded by beautiful, lush landscaping. There is a quietness and calm that, along with the wonderful dry and wet saunas and large Jacuzzi, will make you feel like you are at a top-rated spa.

Talk about a home like no other. We loved the special artistic touches, unique architectural angles, furnishings and artwork throughout the home. And, that downstairs master suite is one of a kind, absolutely huge with windows that completely open to the expansive view and a very nice outdoor lounging area.

Ahhhhhh...very relaxing, indeed! Thank you so much, P.J. for making us feel so comfortable in this home. We didn't want to leave and hope to again return to this oasis in the Malibu Hills.
