About Owner

A former print and broadcast journalist, I coach executives to meet the media and face audiences in person at my company, READY FOR MEDIA. Owning a beach house which I like to share with visitors from around the world is a dream come true.

Owner purchased this house in 1981

Why Owner chose Malibu

Growing up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, I fell in love with living on the water. I recreated that for myself on the sands of Malibu Beach with its crashing waves, arching dolphins, stunning starfish and diving pelicans.

What makes this house unique

Unique for Malibu beachfront property is the Japanese zen garden entrance and the succulent garden patio. It's peaceful and exciting, both at once.

Our Property Manager will be there to greet you with the keys, show you around, answer questions and also come to bid you farewell!

Fantastic Beach-House in Malibu

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as planned on the afternoon on the 20th July 2016, and was greeted by the owners lovely representatives.

Our first night at the house was excellent, we slept like babies.

We were really in awe of the beautiful property, and the fantastic view of the waves rolling in from the Pacific. Fantastic!

Thank you very much Anne for your kindness to us, and the gift card was put to good use at the ice-cream shop.

We had 6 fantastic and relaxing days in Malibu, and we can not wait to come back some day.

Thank you very much !

The prettiest house in Malibu

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights and 7 beautiful sunny days at the house and we could have stayed on for many more days. Fantastic surf, brochure-sand, wonderful neighbours and everything is SO close! The owner has over the years maintained this unique property according to the original architect's idea. All the details are there, even the doorknobs are beautiful. Being a Yachting family we felt similar to when you embark a 40 years old yacht that has been looked after and cared for by people who know what they are doing. Everything works as it's supposed to - just be gentle.

Exceptional Beach Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

- Great Location: Steps from the Pacific, close to Malibu, Santa Monica, and Hollywood.

- Awesome Property: Beautiful and Creative Design and Amenities!

- Incredible Customer Service: Total Concern for your Enjoyment!

If you are looking for a complete beach vacation experience you must book some time at the Villa. Great deck for enjoying the sights and sounds of the sea (surfers, dolphins, waves that crash under the house at high tide). BBQ patio for relaxing while grilling up some local fresh fish. Easiest access to the beach on the coast. We had lots of sand and yards of beach area every afternoon. Thoughtful beach "toys" provided (chairs, flip flops, umbrellas, Boogie Boards, and towels). Family (four adults and one little guy) loved the rock shower when coming in off the beach. Local stores and restaurants are close going both north and south. Lots to do on PCH or just hanging out in the Villa. Will definitely be going back.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! This was the perfect house for us. The tide had brought in a great sandy beach for our kids to play on. We saw dolphins several of the days we were there. In the mornings when the tides were low, we took our kids outside to explore the tide pools! So awesome! We saw many crabs and starfish to the west! We met a cool neighbor a few houses down who told us about many great restaurants and karaoke close by. We drove into Universal Studios one day so the kids could go to the wizarding world of Harry Potter! So fun and only 30 minutes from the house. The funny thing was, about halfway through the day they just wanted to go back to this amazing house and play on the beach. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation rental. Anne took care of any concerns we had. It was one of our greatest vacations ever! We already want to come back and we have only been gone for 3 days! My kids will always remember and cherish the time we spent together in this house. Thank you so much, Anne!!!

Best Owner We've Ever Dealt With

  • 5 of 5

Everything was lovely. The sweet "guest" touches were so thoughtful. Postcards & stamps left for us to write to friends. Robes and slippers to use during our stay. Also, a Grom Ice Cream gift card left for us...wow! We absolutely are crazy for that place ... and we will miss Malibu!

Owner's Response: And we'll miss you and your delightful family! Thank you for being so appreciative and happy ... it warms my heart! My dear mother used to quote George Bernard Shaw, "a happy family is but an earlier Heaven." Best always, Anne

Hidden Gem Nestled Into The Shore's Edge!

  • 5 of 5

It is a rare find where a house is so beautifully situated amongst close by neighboring properties, yet gives the impression of being an island unto itself. The wonderfully peaceful koi ponds draw one down the slope and into the home whose roots are planted firmly in the seashore where the robust waves break at its feet. The home is beautifully equipped with every amenity which allows one to pack and go without the worry of liquids on the plane or bulky robes in limited luggage space. Our family had a very memorable stay which we will cherish forever!

Don't miss the new beachfront Nobu or classic Cholada for Thai.
