How to pick the perfect vacation rental in Malibu

There’s a reason so many movie stars flock to Malibu, California. Located along the Pacific Coast Highway, the city is home to some of the most picturesque beaches in the country, with average temperatures hovering in the high 60s to low 70s year-round. Naturally, beach-related activities are some of the main attractions in Malibu, but the city is also home to the expansive Getty Villa museum and the Saddlerock Ranch, just a few miles inland.

Follow these tips to help you pick the perfect Malibu vacation rental for your travel plans.

  • Where to stay to visit the Malibu Pier:Located along the Pacific Coast Highway, the Malibu Pier is a must-see destination for anybody visiting the city. The pier has been surfing hotspot at least since the Beach Boys sang about their “Surfin’ Safari” nearly 60 years ago, and it’s served as a sport fishing hub since it opened to the public in 1938. Visitors can dine on local, organic cuisine at the Malibu Farm restaurant and buy all sorts of surf, skate, and fishing gear at the Ranch. And, of course, nothing beats watching a breathtaking California sunset from the edge of the Malibu Pier. Book a vacation rental in Malibu Colony to visit the Malibu Pier and possibly get a glimpse of Hollywood’s biggest stars while you’re at it.
  • Where to stay to visit the Getty Villa:The Getty Villa is one of two locations of the J. Paul Getty Museum. The museum is home to more than 44,000 antiques from ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria, dating as far back as 6,500 BC. Visitors can spend hours exploring the Roman-style gardens and marveling at these relics from a bygone era. Book a vacation rental on the eastern end of the Malibu Coast in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood to be close to the Getty Villa.
  • Where to stay to find Malibu’s hidden beaches:A great beach is only a stone’s throw away in Malibu, and everybody knows it. As a result, the city’s popular beaches can get extremely crowded. Beat the crowds at some of Malibu’s lesser-known beaches instead. The picturesque Big Rock Beach, just a quarter-mile north of Topanga State Beach, is a great spot to go crab hunting with kids. Carbon Beach, also known as “Billionaires Beach,” sports one of the longest beaches in the city and enviable views of some of Malibu’s most luxurious homes. Book a vacation rental in eastern Malibu along the Pacific Coast Highway for easy access to gorgeous, hideaway beaches.
  • Where to stay to go on a wine safari:Drinking fine wine is fun. Drinking fine wine while riding an open-air Safari vehicle past herds of zebras, bison, and alpacas is even better. That’s exactly what Malibu Wine Safari offers at Saddlerock Ranch, just 15 minutes north of the Malibu coast. Expert tour guides and drivers will whisk you through the 1,000-acre property, stopping at various points to top off your glass with local wines. Book a vacation rental near Saddlerock Ranch or the nearby Rocky Oaks Park to easily visit the Malibu Wine Safari. All you have to do is enjoy the scenery—and hold onto your drink.
  • How to choose your Malibu rental experience:If beaches are your main priority while visiting Malibu, you can’t go wrong with a beach house along the Pacific Coast Highway. If the Malibu Wine Safari sounds more like your speed, find a house or condo about 10 miles inland and explore the vast Saddlerock Ranch. No matter where you rent, remember to live a movie star. That’s what vacations are for.

Malibu Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local Malibu team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, TurnKey has enhanced its already extensive home cleaning standards and processes to further sanitize homes between each stay for our guests and owners. All TurnKey properties are equipped with our patented GuestWorks® cleaning system and verification technology, requiring professional housekeepers to follow a stringent set of cleaning standards, customized for each home, and confirm their use of COVID-19 fighting products, as identified by the Center for Biocide Chemistries. We have also emphasized effective hygiene practices and safety recommendations for our employees and housekeeping network in line with CDC guidelines. In addition, we have initiated the TurnKey Cares Relief Housing Program, offering thousands of homes for medical personnel and first-responders at complimentary or significantly discounted rates while they perform critical services to fight COVID-19.

Yes. Many TurnKey homes allow for special rates for extended stays, monthly stays or long-term stays. All our booking calendars are accurate and up-to-date, and will automatically reflect these discounted rates when you enter your desired check-in and checkout dates.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in Malibu to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of Malibu house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local Malibu team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s Malibu vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

Every TurnKey Malibu vacation rental includes a fully-equipped kitchen where you can cook and prepare meals with your friends and family.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all Malibu vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of Malibu, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
