Oft-filmed Cape Cod style very romantic studio guest house, 12 minutes from Santa Monica with an outdoor verandah and table for 12, plus a grassy yard with chaises. Ideal for a couple- but we have a crib and a blow up bed for a child or guest. We have lots of surf gear and a maid available. Microwave, electric kettle and fridge- but with three restaurants across the street, why cook?
Described as the "best location in Malibu," our Topanga Beach guest house is a cozy-- and wildly romantic hideaway on a private road away from traffic noises, with direct access to Topanga Beach. Designed by one of the world's top designers (Michael designed Shutters on the Beach) it's relaxed and comfortable and the neighbors are welcoming. Views of dolphins and whales are almost guaranteed. This unique property has been in many films and commercials, but isn't annoyingly "precious." Feel free to use our surfboards, boogie boards (but please repair or replace if damaged), and you'll have free run of our outside area- with a table that seats 12, a roomy verandah and grassy lawn with deck chairs and lounges.
You'll have free run of our property, which includes plenty of space for sunning, dining, reading or just hanging out with cocktails overlooking the beach. Be prepared for a noisy ocean lulling you to sleep.
Interaction with guests
We have a great friend living next door who can help with anything you need- or we're a call away. Delighted to speak before, during or after your visit to ensure you have a memorable stay.
Other things to note
Our guest house is comfortable--not fancy- so you can truly relax without worrying about white slip-covers or carpets. We will help you simplify your life-- eat, drink, binge watch, read and sleep. Be creative, let your mind roam. We are "creatives" (writing, producing and designing are featured on our bios,) so we are particularly interested in people who are trying to recover from stressful lives and find a new aspect of themselves.
Please treat our guest house as you would your home. Not too noisy outside after 10 pm, because our neighbors would get cross. We'd like our housekeeper to look after the house at least once a week. Otherwise, just enjoy being carefree in Malibu.

Producer, author. former journalist, and founder of Creative Visions Foundation, I'm married to a remarkable man who has designed the interiors of many of the world's greatest hotels. I've lived in Kenya, London- but have never abandoned my Iowa roots. . . Very relaxed at home (husband is fantastically neat, but I'm not.) I live beneath our Center for Creative Activism- a few steps away. "Carpe Diem" would definitely be my motto.
