About this listing

In this beautiful, quiet neighborhood on a gentle hillside over-looking the Pt. Dume, Zuma and Broadbeach areas, this old Malibu property feels expansive, peaceful and low-key. A few minutes to the beach by car and ideal for hiking, unique beaches.

The space

Beauty and a sense of expansion create a gracious 'home away from home' feeling on this garden and tree-filled hillside overlooking Zuma Beach (about a mile as the crow flies). Private and quiet, both elegant and rustic, it's a nourishing place for a creative heart. Beautiful pool and jacuzzi, as well the king-size bed, internet TV, wireless WiFi and phone. Fruited garden and a wide sky for easy musing, breathing deeply and communing with nature, a pool/jacuzzi, great bath with skylight, kitchen, W/D, parking, Sautillo tile floors and a hard-to-leave deck over-looking Spanish style rooftops and the wild Malibu countryside in a gentle slope down over hills to white water waves. Hear the waves at night under the stars, perhaps a coyote or a seal far off-shore.

See also our two other listings on this property: "Beautiful Poolside Cottage Near Zum" and "Artist's Ocean-View Garden Secret" each able to accommodate two guests.

Half an hour from Santa Monica-10 Freeway and 20 minutes from the 101-Ventura Freeway, 3 Minutes by car to beach, 5 minutes to grocery/bank/public transport/restaurants/bookstore! Hiking trails, horse-riding, island sail-boat excursions, surfing and ocean sports expertise and equipment nearby.
For a great magazine article on the cottage on this property see Laura Hobbs' article:

Guest access

Sunbathing by the pool, long ocean views, hiking trails at the end of the street, horse backing, every beach activity imaginable!

Interaction with guests

I live on the property but across gardens, upstairs and out of sight unless you need me! I respect privacy and want your needs met easily.

Other things to note

Two market areas, 5 minutes in each direction. Surfing shops for ocean sports supplies, horse-backing and hiking traillovely drive down the coast to the Getty villa and not too far away, Los Angeles . . .

Anndrea's place was perfect for a weekend stay in Malibu. Close to Zuma beach and Point Dume plaza if you are looking to be in town but also ideal for staying in and enjoying the pool and hot tub.

This was such a wonderful place to stay, Anndrea was so accommodating & couldn't have made the stay any more enjoyable! Amazing views & very close to many trails, stores & beaches! Would recommend 100% & would most certainly stay again!! Thanks Anndrea!!

I would recommend staying here if you are looking for peace and quiet with a nice view. It's secluded, but close enough to the beach, hiking trails, and several restaurants. Would stay here again. Great place.

Stayed in the Writer's Cottage. It was very quiet, secluded, and comfortable. Pool and hot tub were great. Town, beach, and hiking trails were accessible. It was the perfect way to end a California coastal road trip. Would recommend to any couple looking for some peace and quiet in Malibu. 4.5 out of 5 stars :)

This is an ideal place for beautiful views and birdsong! We were looking for a quiet place to recharge, and it was just perfect. Anndrea is an excellent host, and we really felt the whole thing was flawless. Quick drive to Zuma and other Malibu amenities, but really felt private and truly in nature. The view is really knockout!! Highly recommend!

First note this was my first experience with AirB&B and Anndreas place could not have been more perfect! it is just like the photos and descriptions listed on the website. I liked the location, we were here in CA for the first time and the location of the home is great for checkig out numerous beaches, hiking, and if willing or wanting to you can get to LA within an hour and a half. (Definitely would suggest having a vehicle) The pool was awesome, can't rave enough about all the beautiful flowers on the property and how welcoming Anndrea is. If your looking for a hippie bungalow, romantic, relaxing type of stay this is it for sure!
