Traditional Japanese Tea House under oak trees!

The Japanese Tea House is one of numerous artistic hand-built cottages available for rental in this 13 acre park-like setting. Perfect for film and photography, the property is set back from the road with lots of rustic buildings and looks. Only 15 minutes from Santa Monica, Malibu and the Valley, it feels like you are far off in the mountains. On the property we also have a stone house and fireplace is over 100 years old. In addition to shooting the interior of the cottage your crew can wander the property providing endless possibilities. The Teahouse is nestled under giant oak trees. It was handcrafted by Japanese artisans, built as a Kabuki Stage in a Japanese gardens. It has a simple interior, a lovely wooden deck and an upstairs bedroom area with beautiful Japanese rafters. There is a separate bathroom with a rustic wooden look. The property has lots of parking. There are over 100 oak trees with sculpted rock streams covered with a total canopy of green. If you need a rustic and forested location this is the place. We have had directors rewrite their scripts because they fell in love with this place. Levi's-global shot here - their directive was to find a place that could be anywhere in the planet and they said this property fit that description perfectly. We have hosted many film and photo shoots here and always do our best to help them have a successful shoot.
