Also convenient to a great selection of delicious restaurants, boutique shopping, movies, health clubs and spas, plus gourmet and health food groceries in Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica's 3rd Street and the Los Angeles International Airport. There is off-street parking for up to 3 cars.

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!

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!

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!

Was looking for a quick 4 day getaway vacation away from the hustle/bustle of DC, and the snow. Wow, did I strike gold with this wonderful home! Right on the beach (closer than any hotel I've ever stayed in, and I've traveled the world), tranquil, peaceful, and excellently appointed! Worth every penny, and it'll definitely be my go to place when I come back to Malibu!!!!!!!

What experiences are all about

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great place for a great family experience. The house, the amenities and the location was everything and more than we expected. Very cozy, well equipped and well maintained. We spent most of our time at the house but did get away to Santa Monica a couple of times which was about 5 miles down the road. The Getty Villa, which is a must-do, is within 1 mile or so. Lot's to do very near by for sure. I can't say enough about the ocean views, beach access and proximity to the water. From late morning to late afternoon, probably had 50 yards of beach between the house and the water which made for lots of fun for the kids. Anne does a great job of providing plenty of beach toys including umbrellas, balls, boogie-boards etc. From evening to mid morning, the waves literally break right up by the house. The sound of waves are a great way to wake each day. I truly can't imagine how you get closer to the water anywhere else. Because of where the house is located, you get a great view of both the sunrise and sunset. That was a nice bonus I wasn't planning on. Tons of great photo opps. We loved it, we recommend it and absolutely plan to return again. Thanks Anne for everything. So many great memories were created.

If you love the Ocean what could be better

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time. Stopped off for six days while our eldest son visited Pepperdine University. It was fabulous the villa is lovely and the proximity to the highway was un-noticed. Just bliss to sit there on the balcony watching our Boys surf was thrilling. We barbecued often after being introduced to the fresh fish store absolutely wonderful.

Fabulous.....Everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

We've driven along the PCH several times and it's been a long held dream to actually stay in a beach house in Malibu. Having extensively researched several properties we settled for Beauty and the Beach and had high expectations. We were not disappointed. It was a home away from home with every amenity necessary and a perfect place to meet our 2 grown up sons for Fall break. We didn't go out much as we didn't need to. Everything we wanted was here. We spent ALL day EVERY day in the ocean and made the most of every minute in this truly beautiful location. I would 100% recommend this property and if you love the ocean it gets no better than this.

A few miles North on PCH you'll find Malibu Seafood. Thoroughly recommend for excellent fish and chips (and us Brits know a thing or two about fish and chips!!). While you're there pick up some tuna steaks, scallops and jumbo prawns for the BBQ. They also do a REALLY GOOD potato salad.

An amazing holiday, one of the best, with a very gracious host who will do her utmost to ensure everything is perfect. Thank you Anne.

Oriental antiques and hand-carved teak provide the height of sophistication and warmth. Enter this very private property through a walled traditional Japanese garden with koi ponds to both the Guest and Main Houses . Beach-combing is marvelous. It's soul-food. The tide pools on your beach walks are full of starfish and the dolphins come to play in full view of your 60' of beach front, right on the sand! Don't miss the new beachfront Nobu or classic Cholada for Thai. Equidistant (just 6 miles in each direction) between happening-Santa Monica and laid-back Malibu for high-end shopping at Maxfields, Ralph Lauren, Henri Buggeler leather goods, Mac, Sephora et al

Other Activities: Enjoy the seeing the Getty Villa, less than a mile away.
