Oceanfront Malibu Beach Cottage on Private Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Feel your spirit soar as you gaze out the floor-to-ceiling windows of our house - a charming beach cottage (1000 square feet) located on Latigo Shore, a private beach in the heart of Malibu. Sip your morning coffee on the upper deck while watching dolphins, whales, and seals frolic in the surf.

At low tide, you can explore the tide pools just outside your door. Catch a few waves on surfboard or boogieboard when the tide rolls in, or take a walk to Paradise Cove Beach Cafe and back.

Our darling beach house is located at the end of a private road, well off Pacific Coast Highway. This offers privacy, easy parking, and plenty of serenity. It has been newly remodeled and features a sparkling new kitchen, a dreamy master bedroom with a California King bed and sliding glass doors that open to a sweeping ocean view. At night you can enjoy the twinkling lights of Santa Monica. Directly across the bay you can see Catalina Island.

A second bedroom has a Queen bed and a twin bed with direct access to a darling enclosed patio. The home also has a single car garage, cable television and wireless internet connection. You will often dine outdoors in the large private patio, complete with outdoor dining table, chairs, and gas barbecue. A heated shower on the lower deck allows you to rinse off the beach before heading inside.

Gorgeous tide pools, surfing, and sea kayaking are awaiting you, just steps from your door. Nearby you will find many fine restaurants, chic shopping, a movie theatre, and adventurous hiking. (Solstice State Park is less than a mile, with its historic trails and waterfall.)

Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family of four looking for some fun in the sun, our Malibu beach house offers something for everyone. You will not be disappointed when you step back to old Malibu, when cottages, not mansions, were the accepted standard for Hollywood stars who wanted to 'get away'!

About Heidi Sandvik

This property was owned by my grandparents for many years and where I grew up going to the beach. It is still owned by the family and enjoyed by 10 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren when not in use by our guests.

Why Heidi Sandvik chose Central Malibu

If you are looking for a peaceful, cozy location, this is it. The property is not fussy or overly commercial. We make every effort for you to feel truly at home in our home. It is not ostentatious, but it is wonderfully soothing and relaxing. You may even find that you don't want to leave the beach for any side adventures you had planned, instead, opting for relaxing days enjoying the sound of the waves, soft breeze and peaceful rejuvenation the beach always brings.

What makes this cottage unique

We are near the end of a dead end road, so there is no traffic. The parking is easy and the neighborhood safe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Perfect waterfront location in quiet neighborhood just off PCH!

  • 5 of 5

The Anderson's Beach Cottage is awesome with the very best Malibu has to offer. The house is right on the water! PLUS, it's on a very quiet road just off the PCH, so there's no traffic or noise whatsoever.

The beach and ocean access are a flight of stairs away and the lot next door offers total privacy. From the beach, you can surf, paddleboard, kayak, etc. the house is situated in a placid cove but very close to a perfect break offering super-long rides for surfers and SUP. It is AWESOME!

BONUS: the lower level studio is unoccupied, so you'll have the whole property to yourself.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous place right on the ocean! The house was bigger than it looked online, and it has anything you need. There's a great outdoor shower, and a stairway directly to the beach, where there is tide pools at low tide. Great barbecue area at front patio, house is situated on quiet end street. I can highly recommend this place!

Back again

  • 5 of 5

We have now rented this cottage for a third time . Each time we grow to love the cottage more and more . It was especially nice to be able to escape all the snow back east and spend time in Malibu . As always , working with Heidi was great and we did have a nice visit with the owners as well. I am already planning for next year and hopefully a longer stay .

The house was delightful and comfortably appointed and we had a wonderful stay at the beach. It was a pleasure to interact with the owners who were extremely helpful and even the neighbors were friendly to us and our kids. We would gladly return and highly recommend the property to anyone looking for a quiet beach getaway.
