About this listing

This one bedroom ocean-view apartment has a queen size bed, kitchen, bath, phone, Wifi, internet TV and movies (and an HDMI cable to connect a personal device to television), as well as parking, pool and hot tub, in a gracious, garden setting. It's 'Old Malibu', gentle and relaxed with a country feel. In a pinch, a twin bed may be added!

The space

This one bedroom haven is located in the gentle hills over-looking Zuma Beach. The lovely patio overlooks a spectacular ocean view. The pool and water-falling hot tub are in a garden with an ocean view. The new king-size bed is most comfortable. All is nestled in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood with fruit trees and gardens, and patios, inside with kitchen, bath, parking, shared pool/jacuzzi, Wifi, TV and a land-line phone, a 3 minute drive to Zuma beach, two markets each 5 minutes away, with gas, post office, restaurants, bank, bus, also 20 minutes from the 101 freeway with its access to Hollywood, Universal Studios, Beverly Hills and museums, 25 minutes to Santa Monica/Venice(URL HIDDEN) I have lived here since '77 nourished by the peace, beauty and ocean hillside climate of 'old Malibu'. Once in a while horses walk down the street toward a mountain trail. There are no sidewalks or street lamps. Yucca bloom on the hillside and you can hear the ocean waves at night.
We have recently insulated and dry-walled the ceiling to provide extra warmth for the coming fall and winter; the photos need updating as they are showing the old rafters. The big beautiful crossbeams still give it a wood feeling but it is a little less rustic, and has a little more finished feel. We added a bathroom door! The feel is casual, country-ish and relaxed with blooming jasmine, loquat and mulberry trees Once in a while coyotes howl up on the hillside. With binoculars, you can even sometimes see a whale's spout! For a great magazine article on the cottage on this property see Laura Hobbs' article:

Guest access

The pool is sometimes shared with two other vacation rentals and several of us living in the main house. but all units have their own space and there is a private feel on the whole.

Beautiful, scenic, peaceful and private. Wonderful ocean views and the property was absolutely breathtaking. The feel was so tropical. We felt like we were on our own little island. Anndrea and Richie were so hospitable and helpful with whatever we needed. We will definitely be back!

The Artist's House is exactly what the pictures suggest - a gorgeous space full of books and paintings and surrounded by narrow walkways between all sorts of colorful plants. Anndrea was helpful, responsive, and always so very kind! We only wish we had more time in our over-planned trip to spend in the pool, house, and surrounding area, and intend to do just that at some point in the future!

Anndreas place was really cute. I was very rustic but such a nice change from staying at a hotel. Anndrea was really quick to answer our questions and we loved being able to sit in the hot tub in the amazing garden.

My husband and I stayed here for our 1 year anniversary and had a great time! This trip was all around beautiful and relaxing. Good place to get away from the busy life of LA. Thank you Anndrea for being such a sweet host!

Anndrea's Airbnb is truly one of the most magical places I have ever been. The location can't be beat! So close to amazing beaches, the quiet and greenery and charm and pool... I can't say enough good things.

This place is beautiful. There are other apartments on the property but it feels very private and has the best sitting chair I have ever experienced
