Please email me for additional information, and up-to-date availability.
Beach: We are on a wet beach, which means that at high tide there is usually no beach in front of the house. The tides change about every 6 hours (high to low) and the times change about 30-60 minutes everyday. Even in high tide, you can usually find some sand a few houses up the beach or a short stroll to County Line Beach next door. Almost always during low tide , there is beach/sand in front of the house.
Location: Note that we are just past the Ventura County line.

This is a unique beach house because it is an 'A-Frame' with 18 foot ceilings. It is all glass in the front on the ocean side.
There are 2 houses on the beach here. The rental is the one behind the first one and sits up higher above the front one.You have a great ocean view from you balcony as well as from inside the house.
You do see the roof line of the front house from your (the rental) house.
You can see the layout of the houses from the 2 video links.
It feels like a much bigger house than it is due to it's unique architecture. You have ocean views from the entire house.
There is nothing like this on the beach in Malibu. The beach is essentially a private beach and when you are on it feels as though you are on a island. You usually can see one or two of the Channel Islands and sometimes Catalina Island....moreless
Satellite / Cable:
Tons of channels and movie channels and 20 DVRs for recording programs and movies....moreless

About the owner: We are a family that treasures quality time together with our friends.
Why the Owner Chose Malibu: We fell in love with the beach, at the end of Malibu. Close to Los Angeles, yet when you are relaxing on the deck gazing at the sea, you feel miles away from everything. A dream location with breath taking views. It starts from the moment you enter your Malibu getaway, from early morning sunrise, to spectacular sunsets and magical moon beams across the ocean floor at night.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We love to cook and always have wonderful meals on our deck. We enjoy having our good friends and family visit and we celebrate each lovely day of beach activities & memorable evenings together.
