Everybody's dream beach house
Everybody's dream beach house
This is my partner's and my second stay in this lovely house perched right over the ocean at Malibu. We hit the deck the minute we got there to take in the sweeping view and watch the waves roll in. The house is comfortable and beautifully furnished, and there's great beach walking right below it, reached by stairs leading down from a pretty, private front patio. We even saw frolicking dolphins on our last day. E My only complaint about this house is that it's really hard to leave when your stay is over.

Very unique and enjoyable experience for my family. We rent a beach house every year in different places (OBX, Pensacola, last year Oxnard), and chose Malibu this time and it worked out really well. Very close to Santa Monica and LA, but far enough away to feel secluded. Beautiful views of the sea! The driveway right off the PCH took a little getting used to. I would suggest using the shoulder to park nose out especially if you plan on turning left onto the PCH. Thanks again!

Fabulous house in a perfect location!
Fabulous house in a perfect location!
We've just been fortunate enough to spend a week in this Beach House for a family holiday. The location is absolutely superb and the views from the master bedroom and balcony are superb. I could sit and watch the waves all day! The sea actually comes under the house at mid-high tide, which takes a little getting used to, but it is a truly unique spot; a perfect place to relax and unwind, yet only minutes from the hustle and bustle of Santa Monica. This is the perfect spot to do nothing or do lots. Surfing and paddle boarding is available from the pier less than 5 minutes away. We shared the sea with dolphins and seals whilst paddle boarding. We all loved it and would definitely return.

Nice house on the beach!
Nice house on the beach!
We loved our stay at the beach house. We slept really good hearing the waves coming in under the house! Every morning around 6 we saw the seals and the dolphins just outside the house. That was amazing. The only thing I didn´t like was the white carpets, with little kids running around it was not very practical and that the highway is right outside the little garden in the front. But once you came in you didn´t hear a thing from the highway just the waves and the incredible view. I thing it was very cosy and a quick drive to Santa Monica! I would repeat if it wasn´t for the white carpets everywhere in a beach house. it wasn´t really possible to swim outside but there are several beaches around in the area. The house was decorated in a nice and comfortable style.

I stayed with my wife two teenage Daughters and one of their friends. There was everything we could possibly want, including plenty of space so I didn't get in the way of the young ones. Ideally located to get to all the beaches, Malibu, shopping in Santa Monica which my Wife and Daughters loved and lots of cool resteraunts. I would not hesitate to go back.

Wonderful beachfront experience
Wonderful beachfront experience
We are a family of five and we spent the month of August is this wonderful home. The location is amazing with the tide coming right up to the house and with direct access from the home to what is effectively a private beach. The location is close in to Los Angeles, only a 10 minute drive to Santa Monica or Pacific Palisades. The home is very comfortable and fit all five of us perfectly. The owners are very responsive and very helpful. We had a great month long experience and hope to go back to stay here again and again!

Our family rented the house for the month of July. We wanted to be ON the water. At times, we were OVER the water- waves literally crashing beneath the house. The location was perfect for us. The view from the master bedroom and deck is unbelievable. The house is situated about halfway between the center of Malibu and the heart of Santa Monica, which was great. Our teenage daughters loved the shopping in Santa Monica. I loved relaxing with a good book (the in-house library is amazing) on the deck. We all loved looking for celebrites in Malibu. Great restaurants are abundant nearby. The interior was just as pictured..... clean, beachy, nice antiques. And, the master bed is REALLY comfortable - it would be difficult to get out of except for that great view when the sun comes up.

Loved the location, close to Santa Monica, close to the heart of Malibu. Spectacular--ocean, ocean, ocean as far at the eye can see. The high ceilings bring the light inside. Saw seals, pelicans, dolphins. Paddle-boarded, swam, surfed in the private bay.

Wonderful stay. The oceanfront was great with unbelievable views from master and front deck. Interior very well furnished and well maintained. Dolphins swam by everyday and there were numerous starfish colonies at low tide. Close to good restaurants, great public beaches, Santa Monica and the Getty. Worked great for our family of four to get together and relax for a week.
