Why Kids Love it

The residence is in a great location for family fun, just a half mile walk from Big Dume beach, a huge beach with surfing and swimming. Westward and Zuma Beach are 3 miles away; Westward is a sandy swimming beach with fun waves for boogie boarding and a lifeguard on duty. There is a very large park and playground 1/3 mile from the house, and kids can swim at the Pepperdine pool, a 50-m pool with a large jacuzzi and 3-m diving board. The house is set on 1.5 acres with a huge grassy lawn to run around on, complete with trampoline. The hosts have many bicycles of all sizes along with boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas. Sporty kids will love the guest access to private tennis facility, Malibu Racquet Club, with hard and Har-Tru clay courts in a lush garden set in the hills just above the Malibu Country Mart, where you will also find high-end shopping with a quaint village feel.

Things to Know

A housekeeper will clean the house twice weekly, on Monday and Friday mornings, for no extra charge. There is a full laundry room. In the home there is an X-box, Wii, Wifi, Apple TV and Apple desktop computer. A crib, high chair and baby bath can be provided on request. The property is gated and fenced with an access code required to enter the property. It is completely private and totally safe, being all on one level. Two single air beds can be added on request. Pets will be considered on request, but an additional security deposit will apply. A local tax of 12% will be added to the nightly rate.

About the Location

The residence is on Point Dume in Malibu, a safe and private neighborhood home to many families who like to get away from the madness of Hollywood. It is under an hour from central Los Angeles and 7 minutes from central Malibu. Nearby there is a great grocery store, pizza place, gastro-pub, natural smoothie shop, Starbucks, Lily's for breakfast burritos, and a yoga studio. Malibu’s wineries are about 5 miles away. Nobu at the Beach is 8 miles down the Pacific Coast Highway. Malibu Country Mart for excellent shopping is a 10-minute drive. There are hiking trails nearby. LAX is an hour away by car.

Accommodation Details

This 5 bedroom 1-level home has a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with tub and shower. Three double bedrooms share a full size bathroom and the final bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. The fifth bedroom is perfect for a nanny as it is in its own area in the house with a sitting room and laundry room next to it, and a private full size bathroom. There is a large open kitchen/lounge plus dining room seating 8, and an outdoor dining room with pergola and electric lights and heater. The garden has a deck, jacuzzi, lawn and play area.

Style Notes

Bright, light and beachy. Decor includes pieces from Restoration Hardware and a brand new Carrera marble master bath with large bathtub and large shower. A pair of Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chairs flank the dining room table, and there is a mini baby grand piano in the TV room. Wicker lights hang from the white-painted ceiling and Matisse prints hang on the wall. We love the garden views and the spacious airy living spaces, ideal for an easy-going family vacation in California.

Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your fabulous house! We loved sitting outside by the fire, playing on the trampoline and reading all of your superhero books! We went to the beach almost every day and just loved being here. Hopefully we will get to come back again soon! Thank you!

What can i say... An incredible vacation in a truly fantastic house. We have never tried a vacation rental before but after this experience we certainly will be doing it again in the future. The house is in an exceptional location and is beautiful whilst still being comfortable and family friendly. The children (3.5ys, 3yrs, 19mths, 16mths) had a brilliant time running around in the back yard and on the trampoline whilst we could sit and relax on the fabulous deck looking out to the ocean, where we were able to enjoy dinner once they were all in bed! Candace could not have been more helpful or hospitable - organising pack and plays, high chairs and booster seats a-plenty! Her recommendations on activities for the children, the best beaches, grocery stores etc really helped us make the most of our holiday. Amazing beaches, ranches, farms, restaurants (Nobu Malibu is a must), outlet mall and even a day at Disney all were within easy reach from this fabulous location. The house is brilliantly equipped for children with books, toys, apple TV and beach toys and equipment a-plenty. I cannot recommend renting this house highly enough and I hope we will be back again next year!

We had a wonderful stay here in March. My four children all loved it, especially the trampoline and huge yard! There was plenty of space for everyone and the home is very warm and inviting. The view form the home and the yard is magnificent. It's a short walk down to two different beaches and we had such fun watching the whales pass from the cliffs above the beach. The house is very well stocked and there is a great lounge/media room for downtime as well. We had a couple of issues when we arrived and Candace could not have been quicker or more accommodating in her responses. We definitely hope to be back for another stay at Parrot Hill!

I can't say enough about our experience at the Grasswood Residence. The layout, decor, amenities, and location gave our family a dream vacation to remember. Traveling with two children under the age of 3, we appreciated the huge yard, trampoline, and the ability to close off the bedroom area to block noise when the children were sleeping. The kitchen was fully stocked, allowing us to cook and enjoy our meals on the heated deck with its amazing view. Candace could not have been more welcoming, providing us a convenient list of great beach, grocery store, and restaurant recommendations, and making sure that we had cribs and high chairs that we needed. The neighborhood is very family friendly, with parks, beaches, and hiking (we left the kids at home for hikes) nearby. In all, it was a home run and a very relaxing vacation for all!

Malibu, Los Angeles

Beaches, canyons and film sets

Malibu has starred in so many films, TV shows and music videos that it needs its own Equity card. Get ready to snap the kids playing on the beach from Planet of the Apes - or if they’re tweens, the spot where One Direction shot a video. The beaches here are wonderful and you’re sure to find a quiet spot somewhere; don’t miss hiking the canyons (there are even stroller-friendly walks), buying kitsch souvenirs on Malibu Pier and watching surfers ride big waves.
