Luxe Malibu Beach Bungalow
Luxe Malibu Beach Bungalow
Recently remodeled, this lavish five-bedroom Malibu bungalow is situated just off of Pacific Coast Highway in one of the most private and sought-after gated communities on the West Coast—Serra Retreat. The Serra Retreat neighborhood, which rests on a wooded 36-acre knoll in the hills of lower Malibu Canyon, is renowned for its Mediterranean-style architecture and striking views of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Mountains. Residents and guests enjoy the privilege of a secluded sanctuary while remaining only one mile from one of the most popular beaches and surf spots—Malibu Lagoon State Beach.
Winding roads adorned with manicured gardens, mature sycamore trees, and fragrant eucalyptus groves guide you to this 3350 square foot, mid-century delight. The home resides on a private half-acre lot surrounded by lush greenery and landscaping, all designed by landscape architect Sean Knibb. Its expansive outdoor living area boasts a beautiful pool and spa, fireplace, fire pit, and built-in BBQ grill, making it an entertaining wonderland.
Each room in the home carries design elements influenced by LA-based fashion designer James Perse and has been meticulously engineered to give you the best possible Malibu family experience. The great room bathes in natural sunlight, creating a calm and serene environment for all who gather there. Fit for a culinary artist, the kitchen proudly flaunts chef-grade stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar to seat those yearning to taste delectable dishes. With an open layout, the kitchen also features soft-seating and a wall-mounted TV, perfect for grazing on a spread of hors d'oeuvres while your favorite sports team plays on the big screen.
Upstairs, a chic master bedroom comes to life with oversized windows. It offers a king-sized bed, flatscreen TV, spacious walk-in closet, and ensuite with dual vanity and newly remodeled bathroom with walk-in shower. Guests will find comfort spread across four additional bedrooms, three of which feature queen beds, and the fourth offers a twin bunk bed and entertaining area outfitted with an oversized sectional and large flatscreen TV.
This Malibu dream house offers guests more than just the home—it provides amenities for all ages, including a playground, basketball court, soccer goal, giant connect four, corn hole, six bicycles, and a brand new Moke. It places you within 20 minutes of numerous sun-drenched, sandy beaches and state parks. To the east, Malibu Pier offers world-class restaurants, exceptional shopping, and the occasional dolphin sighting. The highly-celebrated Pepperdine University is only a mile and a half away, and whose Surf Museum displays an array of historic surfboards, some dating back to the 1910s. And, of course, for a quick day trip, Los Angeles is under an hour away.
Please note there are concierge services such as chefs, catering and additional housekeeping available. There is also car service as needed for an extra fee.

Malibu Hidden Gem
We loved our stay at this wonderful home! We enjoyed the backyard oasis during the day and the cozy home and great dining room for dinner at night. The location is terrific for walking in the neighborhood, to the shops and dining and short drives to amazing beaches! The welcome and support staff were friendly and helpful! We hope we can plan a return trip soon!”

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was beautifully updated and the back yard is a resort like sanctuary. We spent hours playing pickle ball, swimming, and enjoying the California weather in the evenings by the fire pits. We also rode beach bikes and drove the Moke included with the house to the nearby beach, Malibu Pier, shops, restaurants and Whole Foods, which was right down the road. The property manager was helpful upon check in and with additional follow up questions. Thank you for a great stay!”

Owner and staff were pleasure to deal with
We had a couple personal issues come up so we didn’t stay at his home, but owner David and his rental staff were great. David gave me lots of great local restaurant recommendations. ”
