About the 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.
Why the 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.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Unique for Malibu beachfront property is the Japanese zen garden entrance and the succulent garden patio. It's peaceful and exciting, both at once.
