Resident Artist in Malibu since 1974. I've maintained a successful business for over 40 years in the same location. My host property hovers above the ocean vistas in a classic chaparral/canyon setting. We are members of a small and tight knit neighborhood of single family dwellings, seven minutes from the main traffic artery, Pacific Coast Highway.
While vacationing at our peacefully engaging cabin and gardens you may want to visit "Leather Waves", my on site custom leather working studio where you can see me creating my globally coveted one of a kind leather goods, specializing in clothing and accessories of renown style and elegance.
You will be viewing my beautiful printed photography and original artworks used to decorate the cabin, capturing some of Malibu's most intriguing landscapes, the surf culture, and our native plant and wildlife. In fact you might like to book a session with me to be photographed right here on the property or in one of Malibu's famous locations.
I'm a "devoted lover" of Malibu, my chosen home for life, and I will share as much of my knowledge, memories and recommendations as you wish to know. I love good fresh and heathy food, I grow many things in my extensive gardens which I will be excited to share with you in the appropriate season. I'm inspired by beautiful sunsets and clean ocean waves. I'm passionate about peacefully quiet environments filled with singing birds, expansive cloudscapes, and fresh air. Being a lifelong practitioner of Yoga you will find my rental to be an extension of my calm and serene attitudes about a compassionate and caring lifestyle.
Like many a traveler I value a great meal at the local bistro, a cozy elegant bedroom where I can spend special romantic moments with my loved one, sitting comfortably outdoors feeling an unexpected breeze while sipping a glass of wine and hearing the birdsong of many a wildlife visitor or cozying-up at the fireplace and watching my favorite movies.
I look forward to meeting you and making your stay at the "Robbins Nest Retreat" one of your cherished memories.
