About This Listing
Love the ‘Bu (Malibu to locals) like we do. This charming 1 bedroom/1 bath guest apartment boasts a private ocean-view patio, private entrance, full kitchen, washer/dryer and fully tiled floors. Located on a quiet street approximately 2 minutes from the beach, the beautiful blue Pacific fills the expansive window views from both the living/dining room and the bedroom. In fact, you’ll never get tired of viewing the beguiling and ever-changing ocean from the queen-sized bed. On a clear day, you can see several of the Channel Islands including Catalina, and if you’re lucky you might even spy a whale and her calf on their way north from Mexico.
Within minutes of Malibu’s gorgeous beaches including world-famous Zuma Beach, Leo Carrillo Beach and Paradise Cove, the public and oh-so picturesque Malibu Golf Club and a plethora of hiking and mountain biking trails that join the Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains, this apartment is also just a short drive from Pepperdine, the Malibu Pier, wineries, the world-renowned Getty Villa antiquities museum, and notable Malibu shops and restaurants. The apartment is also an excellent starting point for road bicyclists riding the scenic Pacific Coast Highway route to Point Mugu. For touring by car, it is approximately 45 minutes from Santa Monica and 75 minutes from Santa Barbara. Many of Los Angeles’ museums, including the famed Getty Center and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), are within a 60-minute drive.
But we’re still far enough from the city’s light pollution to offer views of starry nights, the milky way, moonglow on the ocean, and even the occasional night-time rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Full one bedroom guest apartment with kitchen and washer dryer and private patio.
Interaction with Guests
As little or as much at they want.
Fabulous ocean views, mountain views and quite surroundings, and nature at your doorstep.
Larry/Nancy are wonderful hosts! Having stayed in multiple high end properties for business and pleasure over the years I would rank Deja Bu right up there with the best. The patio cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening was very peaceful and the view was divine. Can't wait to experience it again!
Our family enjoy staying in Larry and Nancy's house that regret not to plan longer. The scenery is more than appeared in the pictures, esp. in the morning and dawn sunshine. The kind couples provide us everything we need while leaving enough privacy to our own. Next time we are here to take surfing lesson, for sure will stay more days in this lovely house.
The experience was fantastic. Larry and Nancy (and Daisy) were so friendly and helpful. The space is great, very quiet and peaceful, beautiful views and close to the beaches. The beaches are mostly locals, so they are not overpopulated and they are calm and relaxing. We did laundry everyday which helped us reduce what we needed to bring with us. We drove to LA (1 hour), Newport Beach (1 hr, 45 mins) Santa Monica (25mins) and Malibu (5 mins). We would have liked to stay longer, like forever! The trip was great and everything was as it was described. We will definitely go back to Deja Bu!
LOOK NO FURTHER !!!
If you want a PERFECT Malibu experience, this delightful apartment rental is it !!!!
We stayed 4 days and just couldn't be happier with our stay. My wife is a designer and certified clean freak and she commented several times how super clean and wonderfully decorated this cute little place was ( I agree wholeheartedly). You'll be staying in the bottom level of a single-family, owner-occupied home. The numerous windows are positioned so you get are perfect view of the sunrise as well as the sunset. The rooms include a large bedroom with queen size bed, a large bathroom with shower, large-enough, well-equipped kitchen, and a large living room. More than enough room for 2 adults. The views are incredible ( while the pics on airbnb are nice, they do not come close to how beautiful the view actually is).
You are less than 1 mile from the pacific coast highway and 2 minutes from El Matador beach park- beautiful ! 2 minutes away from a shopping area with grocery store. The hosts- Larry and Nancy could be more gracious. Ready to help with anything, yet invisible the entire stay. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.
Beautiful Malibu house with fabulous views from living room and bedroom. Lovely Patio to eat breakfast in looking at the ocean. We even spotted a few spouts in the ocean from the house. Lovely host who was very courteous and went above and beyond in trying to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Highly recommend.
Larry was a great host, he was very helpful all along my stay for any request. The appartment is very confortable, well-equipped and the view is awesome. It is close to most of beaches and suffitiently far from the highway to be not disturbed by the noise.
About the Host, Larry
The apartment is the ground floor of a lovely Malibu home. When the owners (who live on the second floor) realized they didn’t need so much room for just the two of them, they decided to offer the lower level as a guest apartment. Both are avid tennis players, beach volleyball players and hikers, so they can point you in the right direction for a myriad of the wonderful outdoor activities Malibu has to offer.
