Romantic and charming beachfront cottage home offers exquisite style and sophistication. Master suite with king bed, guest suite with queen bed, full bath on lower level, half bath on top level. Fully stocked kitchen with top of the line appliances and bar countertop, 2 large decks with lots of seating options for entertaining, jacuzzi, barbecue and outside shower. Located directly on the sand on what is essentially a private beach (there is no public access).
Tara was very helpful and accommodating the minute I emailed about the home. Tara was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend this house and her services to all my friends and family. As soon as I walked in to this beautifully decorated beach house, I opened up the doors and stood on the deck and immediately felt relaxed. A huge smile came across my face. I live two blocks from the beach in Hermosa and let me tell you....there is something magical about staying in a house right over the ocean in Malibu!!! This place was equipped with anything you can think of; beautiful linens, comfortable beds, grill, but the best part.....a jacuzzi on the deck that overlooks the pacific ocean!!!!!!!! There was 4 of us (two girls from NYC who were all very impressed with the house, amenities and location) and we spent most of our time on the decks. Yes, decks. There is an upstairs deck (which has the grill, couches and a dining table) and the bottom deck (which had another dining table for a larger group and the jacuzzi!!). The beach was very clean and we found an area to the right that had no rocks, so perfect for swimming. The location of the house was excellent. It took us not even 5 minutes to get (driving) to the Malibu Pier and Nobu. Hiking trails were very close too. One night we didn't even want to leave b/c we were so happy at the house. We brought our own food and wine and the house had everything we needed; coffee maker, pots, pans, marble cheese plates, wine glasses. Soft blankets and pillows!!! (Side note: there is a Ralphs a few miles down that has regular priced wine and also has a Murrays cheese section!! - don't go to the small marts, they charge double for wine.) The neighbors were also really nice. A lot of them walk in the mornings with their dogs, so it was great to see happy beach dogs playing in the water and the sand. We also saw tons of dolphins a few times a day. We all didn't want to leave. Thank you Tara for all your help for our fabulous girls weekend. :-)
This was our first rental through VRBO and were extremely happy with the results. The owner Tara was great, she responded quickly to any questions that we had. When we arrived, there was a little problem with the parking, Tara was great and took care of the problem for us immediately. When you walk into the house, the view is absolutely breathtaking. The house is very clean and comfortable, as well as very well stocked. The beds are extremely comfortable, and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean every night was amazing. There were plenty of pillows, and linens for my family. The bathroom on the lower level could use a bit of updating but it was fine. The two decks are awesome, the bottom deck has direct access to the beach. We felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves, we only saw a few other people walk by the whole time we were there. We saw dolphins swim by daily, as well as a sea lion. Our kids had a blast playing in the surf all day long. The beach is perfect, there is plenty of sandy area to walk/play in. The location was great, right in the middle of everything Malibu. I would definitely recommend this house. Thank you Tara!
My husband and I just spent four nights at this wonderful beach house. We've rented a lot of vacation homes through the years, and this is one of the very best anywhere. First, the owner Tara is very nice, responsive and informative. We left a couple of items at the house afterwards and she could not have been nicer about working with us in retrieving them. Second, the house itself is great, well-stocked and comfortable. The appliances are all high-end. There are plenty of dishes and cookware, and the furniture and beds were all comfortable, with plenty of pillows. Third, the location cannot be beat. There are two ocean front decks, and only the second bedroom does not have a view. There is lots of seating on both decks. The lower deck has direct access to what is essentially a private beach. The public access to the beach washed away, and there are no current plans to re-build it. It is a very nice sandy beach and we took multiple walks during the day and evenings. It is a dog-friendly beach where they can run off-lead. Since it's not open to the public everyone picks up after themselves, and it was very clean and safe. Finally, this is right in the heart of Malibu within walking distance of Dukes, and close to the pier and Nobu. We will certainly be back!
Theres just something about Malibu, and this home makes you feel as if you've always lived there. Being a native of Cali transplanted in Chicago, I long for the beach when the snow begins to fall. The crashing surf, the seals on the rocks, the cozy bed, this home is Malibu.
The house has a good location and it is easy to get to different places in Malibu. The house is very tastefully decorated, clean and has been well maintained. There is immediate beach access from the house. The owner has been a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend this rental.
My husband and I recently travelled to Malibu from Australia with our two young sons. We had the absolute pleasure of staying in this amazing property. It is quite simply stunning. From the moment you walk you are surrounded by impeccable and stylish decor and an abundance of ocean views. The styling of the property is magnificent and the kitchens, linen etc are very well equipped which meant we spent long afternoons on the beach and in the jacuizz and could comfortable cook every night taking in the gorgeous surrounds and sounds of the ocean. The hosts were incredibly helpful and resourceful and made our stay easy, relaxing and one to remember. You will not be disappointed in this magnificent home.
This house is located 1/2 mile north of Moonshadows Restaurant, on a stretch of beach called "Dog Beach". It's a 15 minute drive from Santa Monica/Third Street Promenade and about a 5 minute drive to the Malibu Pier and the Malibu Country Mart. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. Great hiking and bike trails within 10-15 minutes of the house.
This house is located on a wet/dry beach. That means that during high tide, the water will come up to the house and during low tide, you can go for walks along the beach, explore the tide pools, etc. It's a good idea to check the tide chart at http://www.surf-forecast.com/breaks/Malibu_1/tides/latest when planning your trip and days while staying here. Also, during times of high surf, it can wash away sand, leaving the beach rocky.
