A wonderful house: charming, peaceful and serene. Nicely furnished, and spotless. The kitchen is nicely laid out for cooking, and a pleasure to cook while seeing the ocean. It is a great house to chill out, relax and spend memorable times with family and friends. We particularly loved watching the course of the sun, from rising at Point Dume, to setting behind the Channel Islands, all from the same spot on the terrace. The kids loved watching for dolphins, while we had breakfast every morning on the terrace. This place really is Old Malibu Magic. We hope to return again and again.

This property was a great choice for me to finish writing a movie script. It is a great house, clean, well maintained, well furnished, stylish decor and furniture. The amenities are just as described, and that does not always happen. The tableware is nice and the beds are comfortable. We enjoyed the evenings by the fireplace and had all our lunches and dinner on the terrace in front of the ocean. The ocean views are out of this world. The house is the right distance from the water, sitting on a bluff 300ft high above the ocean. We will always remember sitting in the bubbling spa, watching the sunrises and sunsets over the ocean. Staying in that house helped us get inspired, rested and rejuvenated and were able to finish our script in record time. We recommend this house highly and hope to be back soon.

28 years ago my husband and I took our first trip to Provence and were enchanted, and this house bring back all those memories. The first view of this house, when entering the gates was of the bougainvillea cascading over the side, and the ocean in the background. Love at first sight. It is impossible not to love the smashing panorama of the ocean, but I particularly loved the quiet of the garden where I could sit and read in the shade surrounded by climbing roses and jasmine. And my husband had plenty of desk space in the guesthouse. During our stay, his computer crashed just when he had a deadline for a proposal and the owner, within no time at all lent him one to use. I am the romantic, but my husband is the pragmatic one and he was so pleased that our deposit was returned promptly. All this exceeded our expectations.

We have been renting houses in Malibu for over 10 years and this is the best experience we have had. We have rented houses right on the beach, but they were noisy, lacked privacy, and safety was a concern. The photos of the house do not do justice to that magnificent view. Coffee with the sunrise; a glass of wine with the sunset… overlooking the ocean all from the same spot on the terrace. My husband and I rented the house to renew our wedding vows with our grown children in attendance. They loved the gym, the hot tub over looking the sea. We will definitely return and recommend this to our friend. The best value we have found in Malibu.

I wanted to personally thank you for sharing your amazing home with us. What a wonderful thing to share such a very beautiful place.
The views are spectacular and we created wonderful photographs to capture and remember our time together as a family. I have an intense appreciation for design, and was impressed with the simple decor that only helps to enhance the backdrop. We came home refreshed from a place that we will forever remember. Thank you again
Tracy, Cleveland, OH
This was our first time in California and we picked the perfect spot to spend it! Everything was wonderful. The cozy house, the dolphins that we saw while eating breakfast on the terrace, listening to the waves crashing…. One week like this goes way too fast…..Thank you so much. Everything was just amazing.
Dan, Marcia, Kayla, Nathaniel, Ethan and Mariana, Saratoga Springs, NY

Our wedding here was amazing. Our guests could not believe the view. We cannot imagine a more perfect spot to tie the not.
Jennika and Harry, Redondo Beach, CA
We spent 10 wonderful days in your house. Everything is just like the description you had given us. Watching the dolphins and hearing the sounds of the waves. You are right, this is a little piece of paradise. Thank you for this great location. We will come back.
Georg and Marina, Frankfurt, Germany
Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful house. We woke up to watch the dolphins this morning, in celebration of my 40th birthday. A very relaxing stay, and great hikes in the afternoon. We’ve been singing all week songs by Captain and Tenille, who used to live in your house! Peace and love.
Tammy and Ed, Burbank, CA
Wow! We came here from the East coast for a wedding and it could not be more perfect. Thank you. We can’t wait to be back again!
Danna, Westport, CT
I cannot begin to express how lovely I found your home; I was reluctant to leave at all during the week as it was so beautiful…… Your home is magically beautiful; I should love to see it when the coral tree is in bloom. Thanks for sharing this lovely, spectacular, yet cozy home… Also, I must say…although was alone most of the week, I had to stay in guest suite with the library…I read many and enjoyed the opportunity to peruse your library. I was in for our 30 year reunion for Calabasas Class 81…it was truly a fab week.
Paige R., Austin TX
Amazing is the only word that comes to mind. Such a magical and inspiring place. My dream house withou t a doubt. I have a piece I wrote about this house that I’ll send your way:) I can’t thank you enough for this. So wonderful and a memory we will share forever. I have a new place to work towards living one day. You can bet we’ll be back sometime:-)
Sean H. Los Angeles
We found everything like you write it in the VRBO website. It is a wonderful place. We appreciate that when the water heater broke on a Sunday afternoon, you had a new one installed three hours later. I got a lot of inspiration being in this house, sitting by the fireplace. This house has good vibes. I came here to finish writing a script and it turned out much better than I anticipated. Thank you!
Denise S., Canada
My wife and I want to say thank you to make your house available. It is a great location. You are right, it is really a piece of paradise.

Chris Eileen, Connor and Ryan W., Albany, NY
Thank you for the opportunity to spend an unbelievable week at your place. We celebrated our daughter’s 8th grade graduation and our 20th wedding anniversary in this perfect place. Sitting on the patio staring at the vast ocean by day, and the stars by night was nearly surreal. We go back to Davidson NC much better for the experience. Two weeks, next summer, for sure. All out best.
Mark and Donna, Montauk, NY

This is Malibu at its best. We called it our little hacienda for our 30week stay. The best Malibu view imaginable. Delightful accommodation. Best beaches, best food, and a terrific responsive host, you, JM. Our favorite restaurants, Sunset and Kristy’s have the best food and friendliest staff and they are just up the road. Great food shopping at Pavilions, and great wine prices, too. We will be back. Thanks again.
Elizabeth S., Seattle, WA
I am in love with this home, this location, the views, the privacy, the peace.. Come here really ready for some R &R, found in abundance. Celebrated 30th high School reunion (Calabasas 81) and reconnected with my data stomping grounds and fellow stompers. I hope to return. Merci beaucoup, I love this house.
Chris B., Austin, TX
Just getting ready to leave after our amazing 2 weeks here. It is a perfect Malibu day!. The house was wonderful, beautiful and comfortable. And the views and sunsets will be forever remembered. We shared our time with our daughter, son in law and granddaughter. Great trips to the beach, early Christmas celebration, great meals and conversations at that wonderful table with views of the ocean. Great memories were made! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home
Frank and Chrissie W., Woodstock, NY
We had the best time. The kids had a blast in the spa and in the gym. My husband and I enjoyed spending time on the terrace, getting a tan and reading books, barbequing, looking at the ocean. And thank you for lending us computer when our laptop got lost, it really helped us.

What a wonderful time we had here. We came here for a relative’s wedding at an other place. The 5 of us slept her and had brunch outside ach morning. We boogie boarded on the beach and visited the tide pools. Wonderful to see the family from all over at the wedding.. we wish we had the time to stay longer. We hope to return someday.

A fantastic week of vacation and break from out life. Our fist adventure with our first daughter Milana (6 months) and much needed family time. Dinners on the patio, mornings enjoying the sunrise and watching Milana enjoy the Pacific Ocean are amongst the memories that we will carry back East with us. Thanks for an incredible first family vacation.
