…is not an actual geographical island. Physically, Island Malibu is located on a working olive ranch nestled in the southern-facing slopes of the Santa Monica Mountains with a 220 degree ocean view. Most visitors use words like “peaceful” and “serene” to describe our nineteen acre property which has oak groves, over three miles of trails, gardens and orchards as well as the olive trees.
All of these help to keep Island Malibu buffered against the noise and confusion of the day-to-day world. We are a step back to an earlier, less complicated time. — a return to Old California. Part of your experience of Island Malibu will be restoring simplicity and calm to your life. This is made easier to accomplish because of the beauty of your surroundings. Beauty is a balm and Island Malibu gives it to you at every turn.
Each day is different, a gift of sights, smells and sounds. The sunrise on the hills as you’re led through an early Yoga stretch. The warm smell of orange blossom wafting in from the orchard as you learn new maintainable strength and balance skills. The endless blue of the ocean and the paler blue of the Chanel Islands that you can see while you enjoy a massage or sit in the hot tub. The taste of an orange straight from the tree or the snap of green peas that you have just harvested from our garden. The sound of the owls and the brightness of the moon on the ocean as you take your evening hike.
We are an island on the land. An island of peace and beauty.
