Welcome to Malibu Mountain, 13 acres of natural land at the crest of the Santa Monica Mountains. Bordered on two sides by national parkland, you will find peace and nature in abundance, along with incredible views across the Conejo Valley to the Topa Topa mountains. The Backbone Trail is at the end of the driveway, with the trailheads to Echo Cliffs (rock climbing) and Sandstone Peak just a few minutes drive up the road. PCH is 12 minutes down the mountain for quick access to Malibu beaches and surf spots. The campsite is extremely private and well-insulated from other humans. There is a small community of homes nearby, the closest being about 1/8 mile away. The neighbors are all up on the mountain for the same reasons- peace, serenity, nature, open space, fresh air, and starry skies. Wake up to watch the sun rise over the hills and the mist burn off in the valley below! We purchased the property for our family as an escape from the noise and hustle of modern life. The property is fully off-grid, and someday we'd love to build a cabin and small farm. It's truly an oasis tucked up in the hills.

You won’t be disappointed!
This place is pure magic! I specifically sought Ellen’s property out for a recent photo shoot and it exceeded our expectations. The views are amazing! Epic stargazing and sunrises. Ellen was a dream to work with and went out of her way to accommodate our specific needs and was a great communicator. Would highly recommend! Ten out of ten!

Very cool quick getaway
Great little spot! Definitely not by itself but you will feel that way quickly. The road in was doable even in my rental sedan. And the sunrises….wow. Really cool spot for a quick night. Def coming back!

This place is a gem, and I will be back! It’s tucked away by some of the best hiking & views in the Santa Monica’s. Sunset and sunrise are majestic. My 5 year old son and I had the time of our lives. So serene and private, and yet you can be at the beach in 25 mins or so. So beautiful!!

Awesome spot! Super secluded and access to nature right in our backyard. You forget you are mere miles from civilization!

Views for days
We loved camping on Ellen’s land in Malibu! The views were beautiful; although we were close to civilization, it felt like we were in solitude. The drive to the site was along a winding road through the mountains over Malibu, and the location just can’t be beat! If you are in the area, this spot should be at the top of your list!

Fantastic spot
Ellen was a wonderful host, and made sure to accommodate my requests. She provided very detailed instructions to the site and I was able to find it without any issue. The spot is fantastic! The view waking up in the morning is amazing, plus it’s fun to watch the cars go by on the mountain pass later in the morning. I will definitely be camping here again!
