Vacation rentals in Malibu

Rentals in LAs most famous neighbourhood

Gorgeous beachfront homes, miles of canyon trails, long stretches of magnificent sandy beaches, fabulous surfing conditions, sunbathing and swimming galore and a wealth of dining opportunities make Malibu a great place to spend a vacation away from the routine. And what better way to celebrate this wonderful town than from your very own self-catering vacation rental? Malibu is basically an elongated strip of coastal land, more rural than suburban, and with no clear downtown area, so when choosing a rental consider whether you prefer to be right next to the beach or a little way up in the hills overlooking the Pacific. Both have their evident pros and cons, but whichever option you plump for, prepare to be surrounded by manmade and natural opulence!

A slice of luxury at your service

Join the rich and famous in your very own luxurious Malibu vacation rental. Delight in a spectacular designer beachfront or hillside property with a high-spec luxury interior, private pool, fabulous gardens and breathtaking views over the Pacific Ocean. You pay a premium price to stay in Malibu, but you really do pay for what you get, with a sybaritic vacation rental experience like no other.

An opulent neighbourhood around every corner

Mansion spotting is one of Malibu’s more quirky activities for tourists, but it's outrageously entertaining spotting the sort of abodes you normally only see in films! A whopping five Malibu neighbourhoods have been rated among the 20 most expensive in L.A, and this is where your hunt should begin and end.
