Villa in Malibu
Luxury in Malibu. Exquisite Views. Remarkable Serenity. Delightfully Private.
Slide open the glass doors and feel the ocean breeze at this luxurious retreat, perched high above Malibu Pier and Surfrider Beach. Share family dinners overlooking the waves, later enjoy a dip in the hot tub under the stars with an expansive view. Airbnb Community Standards do not permit parties or unregistered guests on the premises. Stunning architectural house with walls of glass to experience breathtaking ocean and mountain views. Perfect for a gathering of family, friends, or a meditation retreat, our home is adjacent to the renowned "Wright Ranch." It is also just a 15-minute drive to the beach and 25-minutes from Santa Monica, Calabasas, Woodland Hills or Westlake Village. On the weekends, car / motorcycle and cycling enthusiasts love to navigate the windy roads to test their strength and skills! You will have access to the entire 3-story home. Top floor boasts master bedroom (CA King) with infinity shower and private walk-in closet; two guest rooms (Queen Beds) each with their own bathroom, a loft bedroom (Queen mattress + day bed) and laundry. Middle floor features a living room with wet-bar and fireplace, gourmet kitchen with indoor / outdoor dining, pool, sun deck and fire-pit. Bottom floor features guest quarters (one with Queen Bed and the other with Queen Bunk). There is also a kitchenette and private bath as well as a foyer and den. We'll provide a local contact that can be at the house within 1 to 4 hours if you need help. We have a security system monitoring the exterior of the house (driveway). We have a key-pad on the main door for entry access. No keys to exchange or worry about. Marvel at the natural beauty and wildlife that surrounds our home. Between us and the ocean, there is nothing but hiking trails! We look forward to sharing our oasis with you! From PCH you can access the house via Las Flores Canyon to Piuma Road. From SFV either Malibu Canyon to Piuma Road or Mulholland Hwy to Stunt Road. Detailed directions are provided in our welcome packet which will be sent via email within 48-hours of your arrival, or sooner upon request. Can't spend an additional night, but want to purchase early access or late check-out? No problem! Let us know in your booking request and we'll extend you a special offer. Traveling with children? When the large sliding doors opened off of the kitchen are opened, there is no barrier from entering the pool. Those with young children that do not swim, need to keep those doors shut or always be with your children. We do not keep the pool heated. If you are booking and would like the pool heated, there is a $100 + $50/day charge. WE TAKE GREAT CARE TO RESPECT THE PEACE AND TRANQUILITY OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND ITS RESIDENTS. IF YOU WISH TO DISCUSS AN EVENT OR ARE PLANNING ANY PARTY OR GATHERING PLEASE ALERT US PRIOR TO BOOKING. THESE MAY BE CONSIDERED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS BUT PERMISSION MUST BE GRANTED + THERE ARE ADDITIONAL CHARGES TO HELP US RECOUP USAGE PLUS WEAR + TEAR. THIS POLICY IS RIGIDLY ENFORCED. What people are amazed by with this property is the views! We are just about 1800 feet up above sea-level.

Apartment in Malibu
Idyllic, Romantic Beachfront Apartment in Malibu
Fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves in this charming beachfront apartment. The light, airy home features open-plan living and a wall of windows to maximize the amazing views. Enjoy drinks on the deck and a sunset over the water—it's pure bliss. This beachfront apartment is right above the sand and surf. At night the sounds of the sea will lull you to sleep. During the day, you can watch the sea lions sunning on the rocks and dolphins and whales swimming by or go for a walk along the water's edge and dive in yourself. This is an amazing place to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset and relax! In the evening, the lights of the "Queen's Necklace" glimmer in the distance and the moonlight shines on the water. The living room is cozy with two loveseats to snuggle in and watch a movie on the 50" flat screen TV. Three large sliding glass doors open up if you want to let the ocean breezes blow through. The kitchen is small but fully equipped with an apartment size stove and oven, a microwave, a Keurig coffee maker and a French press, tea kettle, toaster and all the dishes and pots and pans you need. A round table with linens provides a beautiful spot for morning coffee. The bedroom has a queen bed with a new organic mattress and designer sheets, pillows and duvet. There is a large closet with room to store your clothes. Books line the bookshelves if you'd like something to read. Mostly, this is just a quiet, beautiful space to put your feet up and really relax while watching the endless panorama of the natural world outside. And....if you want to feel like a movie star, the apartment was recently used as a glamorous setting in an independent film due out soon!!! Two-person kayak (life jackets available) Boogie Boards and a surfboard Television with premium channels (HBO, Showtime, etc.) Wi-Fi Shared entry gate with one other unit. My husband and I live in a small cottage above the apartment but the only shared space is the entry door. We rarely even see our guests. However, I am always available to answer questions or concerns but almost no one has them! Situated directly above the sand and surf, the home is in a residential area along the Malibu coast, away from the tourist areas. Take in the stars at night while strolling along the beach, or eat at one of the nearby restaurants right on the water. There is bus service available just a minute from the apartment that will take you into Santa Monica or the center of Malibu, or farther north to some of Malibu's more remote beaches. Uber is readily available. At high tide, the ocean may come right up to the seawall limiting beach availability. This all depends on the moon, the tides and the amount of sand that we have. This can really vary from day to day and depending on the season. This winter, rough seas washed away our private stairs to the beach, so guests need to use the public access stairs just a few houses away and a very short walk.

Our home is a non-smoking environment. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property, either inside or outside. We politely ask to respect our guest policy and not to have more than 4 people in the apartment. Guests that don't follow our policy will be reported to Airbnb immediately. We are located right off PCH up the hill. You can access the apartment by going down the long set of stairs along the blue railing on the left side of the property. There is plenty of free street parking at the apartment. Always available in person, via phone or text, if you need anything. The guest suite sits in the lower level of the main house on a quiet street. It's within walking distance to Duke's, Old Malibu Courthouse, and La Costa Country Mart. The house is located in eastern Malibu. Why wait - come and experience the beautiful Malibu firsthand! Many people rent a car or use a car service like Uber or Lyft, but public transportation is also available. Metro line bus #534 (bus stop is 3 minute walk from the house) takes you to downtown Malibu and Santa Monica, and from there you can transfer to the Expo train line which takes you to downtown LA and elsewhere. There are also Big Blue Bus and Culver City Bus lines available in Santa Monica. It’s almost never winter in Malibu: sunny and warm, gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. Malibu always offers a great escape from a busy city to enjoy the ocean, beach and sun.
