The Malibu Beach House which is the main setting in the show, is located in the city of Malibu. It was owned by Charlie Harper until his death in 2011. Its residents include Alan Harper, and his son Jake Harper on weekends. In Season 9, it was put up for sale by Alan and Jake after Charlie's death while in Paris with Rose in between the events of "That Darn Priest" (Season 8) and Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt (Season 9). Following Charlie's funeral, a few celebrities like John Stamos, Jenna Elfman and Thomas Gibson view the house but did not buy. Eventually, Walden Schmidt ended up buying the house. After Walden buys the house, Alan moves out briefly to live with his mother Evelyn but eventually Walden allows Alan and Jake to continue living in the house permanently. Since Nine Magic Fingers, Alan and Walden are the current owners of The Malibu Beach House as of Season 9. It has lately been remodled to look more high tech, incorporating voice activated machines. Jake Harper thinks that it's possibly haunted by the spirits of angry women, leading to the misfortunes that the men of the house suffer from. Mostly Charlie because he was obsessed with women and booze after his untimely death. Now, Walden Schmidt, Alan and Jake Harper are the current residents of the Malibu Beach House as of 2013. Former residents are Chelsea, Lisa and Charlie Harper, who died in between Seasons 8 & 9 (That Darn Priest & Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt) Berta is the Malibu Beach House housekeeper. Her first employer at the beach house was Charlie Harper until his death. Now, her current employers are Walden Schmidt and Alan Harper, which is the reason why she continues coming to the beach house every day. Walden redecorated most of the house except Alan and Jake's rooms in the episode "Thank You For The Intercourse". Instead the house color is light gray and Charlie's piano was removed along with his furniture (jazz posters, couches, paintings, Charlie's bedframe, end tables, lamps, desk, tables, office supplies, portrait of Jake, curtains, porch light, deck chairs, plants, BBQ, most doors except Alan and Jake's bathroom doors, floor tiles and kitchen appliances) and replaced with a computer and so was the kitchen and the living room TV is a giant flat HD screen.
