Rustic & gorgeous secluded 30-acre horse ranch in Malibu Canyon with walk-in salt water pool, 2700 sq-ft production house + endless natural beauty. Available for commercial, film and photographic production. No weddings, parties or events. Only 10 minutes from downtown Malibu and Calabasas/US-101.

Downstairs interior of the main hacienda-style ranch house is an additional $200 on top for each hour used, however a partial portion of the upstairs including the "bell tower" may be used for production only (not to house crew) at no additional fee upon request. 10-12 cars can fit in front of production house, additional parking can be arranged elsewhere on the property if needed. PLEASE NOTE ACCESS IS via 1-MILE LONG DIRT DRIVEWAY. It is a bumpy ride. Though all cars are able to make it (yes even a Prius!), low cars may experience some scraping. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. We've never had any real issues, but luxury vehicles fearful of dust and/or bumpy roads or cars w/ load tread wheels be warned! Consider offside parking with an transport for your production. Please contact us for more details! **Booking rates** Our fees are on a sliding scale and take into consideration the scope of the shoot/event and the number of people involved; contact us for our modest sliding scale rate.Our fee for larger campaigns or video shoots typically slide up per hour depending on wear/tear to ranch & amount of people. Please be as accurate as possible when making a booking to how many people will be on the property. Please make sure you are booking enough time for set-up, make-up and break down. We are on the property and if necessary will adjust the booking to reflect inflated numbers on site through Peerspace. **Overtime Policy (hourly bookings only):** Per peerspace's overtime policy, you will be charged post booking 1.5x the rate per half hour over the booking time. We offer a half-hour grace period. Let us know!: Open communication with us is best – we’re easygoing! Just keep us up to date during the production if you think you will require more time, we can make monetary arrangements for a regular extension as long as there is no conflicting reservation. Peerspace’s overtime penalty protects us from productions who attempt to take advantage of the hourly process. If interested in a day rate, let us know! Please note: Employees, boarders and family will remain on property/maintain access during rental (there's only a very small handful of us!). We're happy to stay out of your way, but horses will continued to be exercised ect. Please be careful with equipment when approaching/being approached by horses. Additional Info: Insurance required? The insurance included with your Peerspace booking is sufficient. Deposit required? No. Drones allowed? Yes Trailers allowed? Yes, with approval. Pets allowed? Our dogs are off leash and we are uncertain how strange dogs will react with them or the horses. However, contact us directly and we will consider on leash dogs on a case by case basis. Child-talent allowed? Yes Generator allowed? Yes Furniture/wall art movement allowed? Yes. Wifi? Yes. Available in production office and in the house. Mobile/cellular network reception?

If interior ranch house rented, yes. NO OPEN FIRES on property permitted. Pool heated/usage? Black bottom Pool can be used, it is not heated. Very warm in summer. Can you record clean dialogue? Depends on the location. What is noise in the surrounding area like? Sundays are a poor choice for video production with audio needs - Piuma Rd is used as a joyriding/racing road (unfortunately). Traffic noise echoing in the canyon is minimal all other days, however. Is there dedicated space available for hair & makeup? Yes What is the natural light like (exposure, # of windows)? This listing is primarily for exteriors; Production house has low light, Main Ranch House has large round windows facing west (low light in AM) Are all areas of the space accessible for production purposes (including the exterior)? No. Interior of the ranch house is additional. Interior of production office is Ok. What are the power capabilities like in the space? The production house was a former photo studio (w/ day light studio) and has a sufficient power source for most needs. The main ranch house is an old home, and is less reliable for large power needs. If you have large power requirements or desire to be mobile we recommend generators. Will there be an on-site manager present during the booking? Yes What are the parking and load-in / load-out options on site? Approx 15 cars can be accommodated in front of the Chapel Production House. Outlets of the driveway can hold another 20 cars, but a 5 minute walk to PO.

Please tread lightly with respect for our wild plants and animals, this is delicate land that we love and are passionate about preserving. TRASH/RECYCLING cans are on Chapel Road. PLEASE THROW ALL TRASH. We will do a walk through with you at the end of the day to ensure all is well. This location is not a listing for parties or events, only production related.

We LOVED shooting at this stunning location! Suze is not only an absolute joy and dream to be around but extremely accommodating and attentive. The space had everything we needed and more! Plenty of room to sprawl for client, talent, and crew. This shoot felt more like a vacation than a work day. Can't wait to shoot with you again Suze! Thank you so much!
Nick W. booked a video shoot for a commercial for 22 people
We LOVED shooting at Malibu Canyon Ranch. Suze was such a delight to work with, very helpful getting cars/trucks parked on the property. And the scenery is gorgeous and we love the exterior shots we got. I hope I have the opportunity to use this location again. One note I got is that our crew with smaller cars had a bit of a bumpy ride up the road, it would be best to find some off site parking and come in vans. SUVs were fine coming up, but lower riding cars could scrape a bit on the bottom. Trucks make it up fine, its just a bit bumpy. Not a negative note, just something to be aware of. Thanks again Suze!

It was our second time to shoot at Suze's ranch -- and it was even more amazing this time. Suze is such a delight to work with and so very helpful with anything that we needed. Can't recommend this space enough - the layout, the experience and the views are the best!
