The Concept

The iconic hotel group set up an experience J.K. Place Malibu for one week only.
Last March, J.K. Place moved into unfamiliar territory – not only by setting its sights beyond Italy to the shores of affluent, surfer-town Malibu, California but also in creating a sensational ‘pop up’ for one week of ‘culinary indulgence’ in this is the private home of real-estate maven Kurt Rappaport.
Spread over six acres on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this 22,000 square foot modern residence built in 2006 just off the Pacific Highway includes a 168-foot infinity pool, seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a screening room, and adjacent guest house.
