Description for Monte Nido

Welcome to one of L.A.'s best kept secrets! Nestled in the serene hills of Malibu Canyon, Monte Nido is known for its natural beauty, sophistication, and ideal family environment. Beautiful Monte Nido (Spanish for 'Mountain Nest') is connected to acres of State and Federal parkland by equestrian and hiking trails. The gatekeeper to Malibu beaches, Monte Nido is equidistant from the 101 freeway in Calabasas and Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

At the turn of the century, many "Hollywood types" headed for the hills and developed particular areas in the Santa Monica mountains as a respite from their busy city lives and film careers. Monte Nido was ideal for many reasons. The ocean fog keeps the mornings misty and cool. A canopy of Oaks, abundant wildlife, and mountain springs aplenty create a tropical fung shui. In the 1920's Hollywood stars helped transform the landmark Saddle Peak Lodge from a rugged mountain pit stop to a glamorous summer retreat known as "Crater Camp". Flash forward 50 years or so, and Saddle Peak Lodge has been transformed back to its roots if you will: rustic dining rooms, log walls, and even a booth carved from native, natural rock. Saddle Peak Lodge has become a favorite "special occasion" restaurant, and you may even spot the locals riding their horses to Sunday brunch. The movie industry has used the variety of native flora and fauna to represent an array of distant locales. Tarzan swings in Monte Nido.

Malibu Canyon Rd. opened in 1953. This made the trek from Malibu to Monte Nido much easier than navigating over Saddle Peak Mountain via Rambla Pacifico or Las Flores Canyon at the coast. A prime neighborhood for those seeking privacy and beauty, yet accessibility to modern conveniences, Monte Nido is the quintessential neighborhood. Most properties in Monte Nido are custom, horse friendly and are situated on large parcels of land. Located within the award winning Las Virgenes School District, Monte Nido has a "Mommies and Me" club and is home to a chapter of the United States Pony Club.
