layoutsWestlake and Malibu are two jewel locations on the lifestyle spectrum, connected in more ways than by a picturesque canyon. While one is tucked up in the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, the other overlooks the dolphins in the glistening Pacific Ocean. What they have in common is a way of life – close to nature – that is far from the ‘madding crowds’.

Each big glossy issue of Westlake Malibu Lifestyle delivers high-profile, thought-provoking interviews that provide readers with substantial depth versus gossip. There are interesting features and remarkable stories of people’s courage and altruism. Beautiful homes, travel, sport, entertainment, medical breakthroughs and environmentally-responsible subjects are the magazine’s main stays with superb photography and a showcase of talents. The magazine has a shelf life of two months and will saturate these areas: Westlake Village – including Lake Sherwood, Hidden Valley, North Ranch – and Malibu. There are several advertising options that suit every business budget. Rates depend on size, placement, and length of contract. What’s important is that you know that your advertisement will be distributed to the people who ensure your success. With an attractive and captivating “coffee table” magazine in a prime geographical region, our shelf life long outlives its two-month-issue cycle. Advertisers will be pleased with their market saturation into the targeted markets that will make a difference.
