Just a few minutes outside of Los Angeles, Malibu is a picture-perfect town, and a haven for countless film stars and entertainment elite. One cruise through the hilly neighborhood offers enough gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean to last us a lifetime... but of course, we'd rather wake to waves crashing every day. To get a taste for the good life, we're taking a look back at some of the most stunning Malibu celebrity homes we've seen. From Matthew Perry's ridiculously baller bachelor pad to Daryl Hannah's rustic yet relaxing eco-hideaway, there's something for everyone on this list.

Designed by Frank Gehry with interiors by our very own editor-at-large Estee Stanley, actor Patrick Dempsey's light-filled Malibu family compound boasts architectural significance, interior beauty, and a number of amazing outdoor living features. Dempsey’s landscape designer Scott Schrader made the outdoors a family fun zone with a flat lawn for soccer games, an alfresco kitchen with pizza oven, a breezy dining area, and coops and hutches for the family’s growing number of chickens, donkeys, pigs, and other pets.
Located on a seven-and-a-half acres, Australian actor Liam Hemsworth’s three-bedroom, three-bath home boasts two fireplaces, polished concrete and reclaimed wood floors, a walk-in refrigerator, a large deck, a pool, and a barn with a recording studio. Pretty grand for a single dude.
Listed last year for $12.5 million, actor Matthew Perry’s modern cliffside home overlooking the Malibu Pier is as baller as it gets. It boasts four bedrooms, five baths, an L-shaped swimming pool and spa, a game room, a fire pit, and views of the Pacific Ocean from virtually every room. We bet he doesn’t have any trouble making friends.
Sun-drenched rooms are the rule, not the exception in Cindy Crawford's sprawling, rustic-luxe coastal oasis in the Malibu Hills. With resident horses, lush landscaping, an oversize teepee, an open barn-turned-lounge, and a Mediterranean-tiled pool, the supermodel's home is a laid-back retreat from busy and flashy Los Angeles.
Lady Gaga scooped up this $23 million six-acre estate across from Malibu’s Zuma Beach last year. With a prime beachfront location, an 800-bottle wine cellar, a home theater, and a two-lane bowling alley, it is certainly a perfect setting for a megastar like Gaga. We love its South-of-France-inspired interiors.
Supermodel Miranda Kerr’s Malibu beach bachelorette pad, which she purchased last year, is a "quaint" three-bedroom home with a galley kitchen, beamed ceilings, a pool, a pool house, a detached gym, and a brick courtyard. Oh yeah… and stunning views of the Pacific.
Nature lovers will appreciate the beauty of Daryl Hannah's sustainable Malibu compound, which was listed last year for under $5 million. The 17-acre property boasts three buildings: a house with an art studio; a stand-alone master suite with a Japanese-style soaking tub and a fireplace; and a guest room with a loft and views of the ocean.
Listed for sale for close to $8 million last year, Pamela Anderson’s three-bedroom, three-bath Malibu beach house has sleek modern architecture and simple, pared down interiors. The epitome of California living, it has an ultra-wide swinging glass door that opens to an outdoor living room, kitchen, and pool.
Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Yolanda Foster's six-bedroom, nine-bath home is the stuff of dreams. Listed for nearly $28 million, it boasts spectacular views of the Pacific, various indoor/outdoor living spaces, a chef's kitchen, full gym, screening room, recording studio, billiards room, home spa, and his and hers dressing rooms. Not bad, not bad.
