WELCOME TO HARBOR STUDIOS
Harbor studios is a luxury, world-class recording studio and lodging experience in Malibu, CA. For the last 25 years, our grounds have privately functioned as a creative oasis for the music industry's top musicians, producers, and writers. At last, Malibu's finest musical environment is open for booking.
Nestled along the Malibu coast, we have the ultimate location to dig in, let go, and create. Our space exudes the allure and beauty of a bygone Hollywood era while offering every modern comfort. A short 15 minute drive from Downtown Santa Monica, Harbor Studios exists on the fine line between escaping into nature's curiosities and being within distance of anything you might need. We are nearby to some of California’s most impeccable hiking trails and stunning beaches, and holistic spa treatments are available on demand.
Designed entirely of sustainable, eco-friendly materials, our bamboo wood-infused studio utilizes three different ceiling heights and contrasting materials designed specifically for tracking, all while offering panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean exceeding 180º.
Driven by cutting edge technology, Harbor Studios was built by best-in-class studio builder Steven Klein, only to be further upgraded by acoustician Hanson Hsu, founder and inventor of critically-acclaimed ZR Quantum Acoustic Technology. Known for creating immaculate sonic detail and accuracy, these fabled ZR systems have been utilized and celebrated by the likes of the most elite audiophiles. Finally, the acoustic architecture of our space envelopes a custom-designed blonde-maple workstation designed and hand-built by the legendary wood worker Robert Beijer.

Existing on one of the only southern-facing stretches of the entire Pacific Coast Highway, Harbor Malibu is fortunate enough to offer sunrise and sunset experiences every morning and every night, all year round.
We look forward to having you.
Harbor Malibu's brand new Zen Garden was built for harmony - The Garden is designed as a space for artists to unwind, connect with themselves, and easily tap into flow. Like water, art is shaped by its environment, and in the Garden, we have created a peaceful and welcoming space that allows artists to access their art in an honest way.
Featuring two ponds, three waterfalls, a tea bar with triple purified water and organic tea readily available, as well as a 40ft long retractable canopy, side curtains for absolute privacy, and a studio setup, we have created a space that simultaneously functions as a creative "ground-zero" and an indoor-outdoor recording space.
