Offering complete privacy and yet close to all, this romantic jewel is one of the few homes remaining with a connection to Malibu’s legendary past. Singers “Captain and Tenille” and Hollywood-star Jan-Michael Vincent lived in this magical retreat.

About the Host, Jm
I was born and raised in France, came to the US in 1979, and moved from Manhattan to Malibu in 1994. That's when we bought this wonderful property. We remodeled it in a style of "South of France (where I'm from) meets grand old Malibu" and lived 13 happy years in it.
In 2007 we acquired another property and made this special house available for rental, year round. More than 200 guests have stayed at this property, including many celebrities, and we have had only positive reviews. We look forward to your visit!
