FROM LAX

Exit the airport on Century heading for the 405 Freeway

Take the 405 Freeway NORTH 

Stay in the right lane, look for the 10 Freeway, SANTA MONICA EXIT

Take the 10 Freeway WEST

Stay on the 10 Freeway as it passes through the McLure Tunnel and becomes PACIFIC COAST HIGHWAY (ROUTE 1)

FROM SANTA MONICA

Take Pacific Coast Highway North and West toward Malibu.

Drive through Malibu center, past Pepperdine University (on right)

6 miles North of Pepperdine watch for W. Winding Way.

NOTE:  THERE ARE TWO WINDING WAYs.  TAKE THE SECOND ONE.

Turn right uphill onto WEST Winding Way.

After 100 yards there is a t-intersection.  TURN RIGHT.

We are 1.5 miles uphill from the intersection.  None of the street numbers are in order.

After about a mile you will come to a long stretch with large houses on your left.  At the end of this is a turnaround area by an even larger white house.

This is not the end of the road.  The road narrows -- Keep coming uphill.

After a couple of steep turns you will see two signs that say DEAD END and Private Road.  Keep driving

We are the next driveway after that.  There are two metal gates which we will leave open.

You will see a yellow wall and a sign for Rancho del Cielo.  

Make a left turn into the drive and another left onto the circular driveway.
