Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)
Feel your spirit soar as you gaze out the floor-to-ceiling windows of our house - a charming beach cottage (1000 square feet) located on Latigo Shore, a private beach in the heart of Malibu. Sip your morning coffee on the upper deck while watching dolphins, whales, and seals frolic in the surf.
At low tide, you can explore the tide pools just outside your door. Catch a few waves on surfboard or boogieboard when the tide rolls in, or take a walk to Paradise Cove Beach Cafe and back.
Our darling beach house is located at the end of a private road, well off Pacific Coast Highway. This offers privacy, easy parking, and plenty of serenity. It has been newly remodeled and features a sparkling new kitchen, a dreamy master bedroom with a California King bed and sliding glass doors that open to a sweeping ocean view. At night you can enjoy the twinkling lights of Santa Monica. Directly across the bay you can see Catalina Island.
A second bedroom has a Queen bed and a twin bed with direct access to a darling enclosed patio. The home also has a single car garage, cable television and wireless internet connection. You will often dine outdoors in the large private patio, complete with outdoor dining table, chairs, and gas barbecue. A heated shower on the lower deck allows you to rinse off the beach before heading inside.
Gorgeous tide pools, surfing, and sea kayaking are awaiting you, just steps from your door. Nearby you will find many fine restaurants, chic shopping, a movie theatre, and adventurous hiking. (Solstice State Park is less than a mile, with its historic trails and waterfall.)
Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family of four looking for some fun in the sun, our Malibu beach house offers something for everyone. You will not be disappointed when you step back to old Malibu, when cottages, not mansions, were the accepted standard for Hollywood stars who wanted to 'get away'!

About Heidi Sandvik
This property was owned by my grandparents for many years and where I grew up going to the beach. It is still owned by the family and enjoyed by 10 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren when not in use by our guests.
Why Heidi Sandvik chose Central Malibu
If you are looking for a peaceful, cozy location, this is it. The property is not fussy or overly commercial. We make every effort for you to feel truly at home in our home. It is not ostentatious, but it is wonderfully soothing and relaxing. You may even find that you don't want to leave the beach for any side adventures you had planned, instead, opting for relaxing days enjoying the sound of the waves, soft breeze and peaceful rejuvenation the beach always brings.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are near the end of a dead end road, so there is no traffic. The parking is easy and the neighborhood safe.

A Wonderful Relaxing Paradise
A Wonderful. Relaxing Paradise
We have travelled all over the world and stayed in literally hundreds of places. And this beach house is where we return for renewal and reconnection with the ocean and nature. We have rented it multiple times over the years --- sometimes in Summer, sometimes in Spring, sometimes in Fall --- and recommend it very highly for anyone who wants to have a wonderful Malibu experience right on the beach.
The house is one of the original “Old Malibu” beach cottages and has been updated to reflect all the modern necessities: Two flat screen TV’s, Blue-Ray, high speed Internet, Keurig coffee maker, and a modern, efficient kitchen.
The house is fully furnished with comfortable furniture, a great king bed that allows the soothing sounds of the surf to lull you to sleep. The unique placement of the house right on the beach looking directly upon one of Southern California’s finest surfing beaches reinforces its major strength --- location, location, location. Latigo Shore is a private road, that dead-ends just beyond the house. One feels totally away from the hustle and bustle of Malibu, but you are close to all the basic stores along with high-end shopping and restaurants if that is your desire.
There is a lovely enclosed patio behind the house that we used many times for entertaining at night when the sea breeze was a bit too chilly since the house blocks the wind, along with a privacy fence.
The master bedroom opens up right onto the water. Most evenings one can leave the sliding patio doors open either a small amount or totally open to allow the sounds of the surf to become a part of a healthy sleep.
The house is absolutely perfect for two, while a family of three or four (or two couples) could easily be accommodated since the second bedroom has both a queen and a single bed with plenty of closet and drawer space.
We both worked at UCLA for twenty years and now have a small ranch outside of Austin, Texas. Yet the beach house keeps calling to us and we regularly visit to see friends and family in LA. But it is very easy to simply “stay put”, and venture no further than Malibu, since the beach, the waves, the surfers, the tide pools, the sand, and the nature become a regular part of your life.
We recommend this wonderful place very highly.
Always a pleasure to have you!
Just what I needed
Best little beach cottage out there. Very relaxing, quite and has everything you could need like you were at your own house. Wish I could have stayed longer.
Beach Life at Its Best!
We loved staying in this charming, two-bedroom cottage at Latigo Beach. It was comfortable, well equipped and the ocean views can't be surpassed. Also access to the beach at low tides was very convenient. What a relaxing and fun time!
Great location. Front row seat for daily sunrise and surfers, paddleboarders.
Perfect waterfront location in quiet neighborhood just off PCH!
The Anderson's Beach Cottage is awesome with the very best Malibu has to offer. The house is right on the water! PLUS, it's on a very quiet road just off the PCH, so there's no traffic or noise whatsoever.
The beach and ocean access are a flight of stairs away and the lot next door offers total privacy. From the beach, you can surf, paddleboard, kayak, etc. the house is situated in a placid cove but very close to a perfect break offering super-long rides for surfers and SUP. It is AWESOME!
BONUS: the lower level studio is unoccupied, so you'll have the whole property to yourself.
A gorgeous place right on the ocean! The house was bigger than it looked online, and it has anything you need. There's a great outdoor shower, and a stairway directly to the beach, where there is tide pools at low tide. Great barbecue area at front patio, house is situated on quiet end street. I can highly recommend this place!
