15 minute drive to Malibu Beaches -Conveniently located with easy access to all of Los Angeles this 4 Bedroom/2 Bath beautifully furnished Mid-Century Modern House is a perfect place for family vacations, reunions, retreats, wedding groups, etc
We completely remodeled this home and the style is contemporary & comfortable with a little retro thrown in for fun.

The kitchen has custom maple cabinets, concrete countertops, stainless steel appliances (including dishwasher) and there is seating for 8 people in the dining room.
We have Cathedral Ceilings, Concrete and Hardwood Floors throughout the house.
We recently completely re-designed & re-landscaped the backyard with drought tolerant plants, a fire pit, and a table that seats 20 people. It is the perfect place to dine outside, let the kids play or just sit and enjoy our beautiful sunny California weather with lots of trees, comfortable Adirondack chairs, outdoor lighting, sound system and gas BBQ.
The house and backyard are great for entertaining so we get asked all the time if the house can be rented/used for all types of events such as Wedding Brunches, Small Family Reunions, Outdoor BBQ’S, Group Retreats, Casual Dinners, etc.
Below are the important details to know:
1. There is a very strict MAXIMUM of 20 PEOPLE and 4 CARS because our home is located in a residential neighborhood so we want to be respectful of our gracious and nice neighbors.
2. Only Guests who have rented the house to sleep/stay in may also use the house for additional events.
3. There may be an additional fee depending on the type of event, length of event & number of people attending the event.
4. This is NOT a party house so please no loud or excessive noise, use of illegal substances or disorderly behavior. We have family who live in the neighborhood so we will know if there are problems and your entire security deposit will be forfeited in order to discourage such behavior.
5. There are LOTS of local restaurants/bakeries/specialty stores that do both Take-Out & Catered Food so if you are interested let me know and I give you a list of great local places.
Guest have access to the Entire House, Back Yard and Garage. There is Easy Parking in the drive-way & on the street for multiple cars to park.
Interaction with Guests
We are always available via Text/Phone/Email to answer questions but we respect our Guest privacy. If desired we have lots of recommendations of places to see, things to do & great food to eat in the Los Angles area.
Our home is in a unique area because it is a safe, secluded bedroom community that backs to Malibu Creek State Park, so there are great places to walk, hike and mountain bike starting at the end of our street and connecting to the Santa Monica Mountains. But we are also less than a mile to an organic grocery store, resturantss & pubs. And we also have easy 101 freeway access which can conveniently connect you to anyplace in Los Angeles you want to visit... including Disneyland, Graumans Chinese Theater in Hollywood, Santa Monica Pier & 3rd Street Promenade shopping, The Getty Center Museum, Venice Beach, Pasadena Rose-bowl swap meet and Camarillo Outlets shopping...and more.
While there is a bus stop at the end of our street, since LA is such a car town if you want to easily get around all of LA then a car is recommended. We are about 45 min-1 hour from Los Angles International Airport.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Elizabeth’s home. There was a large group of us in town for work, and we had plenty of space for all. The back yard is beautiful with a lovely community table and fire pit for relaxing evenings. The kitchen has everything that we needed for meals as well as an amazing convection oven and outdoor grill! Access in and out of the house was easy and thoroughly explained. Elizabeth was very communicative and easy to reach if we had any questions. The house is beautiful and has many artistic details that are lovely. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone.
Our cycling team booked 6 days here to escape the Canadian winter and sample the riding around the Santa Monica mountains. This house was a perfect fit for us, just the right size for a team of 6 guys. The bunk beds ensured everyone had their own personal space and the enormous dining tables both indoor and out gave us lots of elbow room at mealtime. As for the riding... Let's just say we are already looking forward to next year's training camp! If you haven't ridden the Malibu canyons, you haven't experienced pure cycling bliss.
A magical place, awesome location, warm and peaceful - the perfect escape. It was close to great hikes that we just loved! Also a short drive to some of the best beaches in Malibu. We really enjoyed how easy it was to change the scenery from beach to mountains to great views and to cosy wooded areas. We were a family of 8 people and we were very confortable and there is place enough in the house even for more people. We stayed 5 days in March and enjoyed every minute of it. I'm grateful for this experience. Elisabeth took care of every details we needed in the house and she asked me every question I had. There are every cookware you need.We really love this place and would gladly come back any time! Thanks a lot

Elizabeth & Kenji were wonderful and so easy to work with. Elizabeth communicated wonderfully about the house and how to get in. We loved the house, it was clean, functional and lovely. A wonderful find for sure!
We had a wonderful time at Elizabeth and Kenji's place. The house is perfect, very spacious and nicely equipped. It has a modern-retro look and everything inside was so clean and organized. The linens and the towels felt new, like in a hotel!
Elizabeth was very kind and attentive, we had immediate response from her for everything we needed.
We stayed with our young kids for a week and they had a blast discovering and playing with the vintage toys, books, and gadgets that are found throughout the house. There's almost no need to leave the house!
The house also has a big backyard, which the hosts are redesigning, perfect for the kids to explore and run around, and for having al fresco time! (There is a fire pit and a grill)
The neighborhood is also very nice and felt totally safe. It's a residential area next to Agoura Hills, close to Calabasas and Malibu.
I completely recommend the house, I would stay again without thinking it. We completely loved it.
Elizabeth and Kenji were fantastic hosts. I was traveling with a large group and their home afforded us lots of space to relax on our vacation. We particularly enjoyed the generous backyard, where we listened to music via the house's outdoor PA system. The location was super convenient to the both hiking trails and the beach. I'm eager to return, when the next opportunity presents itself.
Super bons moments dans cette superbe maison spacieuse , contemporaine et vintage a la fois , nous avons facilement dormi a 7 et diner jusqu'à 13 personnes . Le jardin est très sympathique et très calme ,visite le soir des ratons laveurs . La maison se situe dans un quartier résidentiel très calme à proximité de l'autoroute 101 . Adresse que je recommande vivement et que je garde précieusement pour revenir voir ma famille .
Merci Elisabeth et Kenji
