About this listing

Amazing gated property on 8 acres. In the 70s, Captain and Tenille lived there . We bought the house after Jan Michael Vincent (Airwolf) moved out. The neighbor, who was married to him, told us that Denzel Washington and Jimmy Page had lived there before. The house sits on 300ft high bluff, overlooks 4 miles of public sandy beach, has amazing 180º ocean views, the best in Malibu. From the terrace you can see the sun rise/set on ocean. Sleeps 8 adults.

The Space

This heavenly bluff-top property with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a detached gym boasts 180º ocean views and 180º mountain views. From the oversize outdoor patio, you overlook a 4 mile long public sandy beach, see dolphins play, and watch whales migrate. From the master bedroom, wake up and sleep to the sound of waves.

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.

This one-of-a-kind estate is just a few hundred yards from prestigious Broad Beach. You drive up a short private road, and down a private driveway, pass through the gate, and discover an oasis of old Malibu charm, surrounded by mature junipers and California pepper trees. Cool ocean air flows through this private retreat.

The charming house is elegantly decorated, with open-beamed ceilings, lots of windows and natural light. It is perfect for couples, families, or friends seeking a romantic and restful holiday or professionals who prefer not to stay in a hotel. It comfortably accommodates up to eight people.

The rental includes exclusive use of the three buildings: main house, guest house, and detached gym, in complete privacy.

With a large oceanfront patio and jacuzzi overlooking miles of whitewater, this tastefully remodeled getaway offers the indoor-outdoor California Malibu lifestyle at its best.

Malibu, California, United States · Member since November 2013

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 our first property. in Malibu 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 until 2007, when we moved to Los Angeles. Since then, more than 200 guests have stayed at the Malibu property, including many celebrities, and we have had only positive reviews.
In 2015, we acquired another property in Los Angeles, near the Culver City Arts District and are making it available for rental.
We look forward to your visit!
