Samantha’s Malibu Beach House from “Sex and the City”

Samantha's beach house 1

Remember the contemporary beach house in Malibu that Samantha (Kim Cattrall) lived in for the first Sex and the City movie? It was pretty fabulous, with glass balconies and ocean views. I showed you a little of it in my post about the SatC sets.

Well, now you can live there yourself! That’s right, you can rent this house for $75,000 a month for a short-term lease, or a more “budget-friendly” price of $55,000 if you plan to stay awhile.

In this shot from the movie, Samantha and her live-in boyfriend Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis) make themselves at home:


Here’s how the house looks in the listing, with what appears to be the same furniture that Samantha used:

When the movie filmed in ’08, the house was on the market for $17 million, but the price was later dropped to $14.5 million. (More photos and info on Iamnotastalker.)

The house has three levels and they’re almost entirely glass, which makes for great views everywhere you look:

The house has 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, and 4 decks.

When I saw this beautiful, beachy Martha's Vineyard house featured on House of Turquoise, I immediately thought of the one from Something's Gotta Give. So…

    Ok, I’ll take it…..and I’ll make sure I say hello to the nice man who lives next door :)

    I don’t usually love uber modern decor, but that bathroom makes it ALL worth it!!! And, the beach!

  3. says

    This is gorgeous! Those views! And that bathroom! I’m completely stunned. I’d love to rent this for a month or two. But 75,000 dollar a month, well, it’s not gonna happen any time soon. But you never know! It’s a shame though that Smith isn’t included :p

    Wow, the windows {and the view} are incredible. But boy, that is some serious rent money isn’t it?? I would die to live on the beach one day though!

    Beautiful, but I think I’m getting sunburned just from looking at it. Also, as someone who has a curved glass sunroom…I bet it gets wicked hot in the afternoon facing that western sun, so one would have to keep all those doors open and let the roar of the surf/beach breezes roll in…oh to have such a problem!

    I know.. they’re trying to sell this house for ages!!!! I think they’re having trouble to do it because of the price, but who knows? They might get lucky now that you’ve posted about it. 😉

    I hope you and your family have a blessed week, Julia!

    I think residents would have to constantly wear sunscreen and sun glasses. By the way, does the neighbor (you know which one I am talking about) come with the property?

  8. Mandy says

    Love the house! I am not a fan of white, white, white. So, I would take the house and re-furnish it.

  9. says

    Well, it’s not my style but I’m sure I could struggle thru some how! Those views make up for everything else! —oh and that bathroom :)!!!!

  10. says

    Something to dream about! There’s so much snow outside my window :-(
    I need a view of the ocean, warm sunshine and walking barefoot on the beach. Sigh….

  11. says

    I’d take it solely based on the fact that it has that fabulous bathroom!! Love all those amazing windows, but I wonder who they hire to clean them? 😉

    I am SO excited to see Carrie and Big’s apartment from S&TC2! I loved the furniture, their bed and dresser for the TV especially. This beach house is ultra cool and modern, which is probably why it’s not my taste. I love the clean lines and white furniture though. I love all the panoramic views the windows provide, and I agree, that bathroom is pretty spectacular. I love bathrooms that feel like a spa. This house is incredible, and “affordable” if staying longterm haha

  13. says

    Wow … the views are incredible!! I so enjoyed looking back at the other Sex and the City post too … so fun to have all of the pictures of their “places” in one spot!! I think I’m more of a Charlotte girl in decorating!! Thanks so much for the fabulousness!

    I love the view of that house. It looks so relaxing. I don’t care for the house, way too contempory for my taste. I love the white furniture though. They look cozy to sit in.

  15. says

    Oh yeah. I hope it still has the view of the neighbor’s shower! Well, only if he’s a good neighbor.

    I agree with Melody, loooove the bathroom. Perfect light, enough privacy and a view.

    The clean lines are the perfect compliment to the views. This house is all about the views, clutter and anything but simple and modern would ruin the entire effect. Very nice.

    Usually I don’t love modern beach houses, but all that wood and glass is beautiful…and that view! Whenever we travel to the L.A. area, we try to stay at a great cheap motel in Malibu just so we can walk on that beach. Despite all the celebs that live there, it’s actually a neat, laid-back little city.

  17. says

    Oh. My. Gosh. Dream house! I think I’m drooling a little. All of that glass is incredible, and those are amazing views. I can picture myself and my husband living there… yup. (:

    I am a big fan of Sex and the City, so love the posts you made on the beach house and Carrie’s apartment. Hope you will do a feature as well on the apartments used in the series like Samantha’s apartment in the Meatpacking district.

  19. says

    Nice view, but I can’t imagine how often you’d have to clean the windows! Ocean spray is messy.
