During the day, catch a glimpse of the dolphins and seals that frequent the area, test your skills at surfing made famous in Malibu, or rent a kayak to explore the coastline.

Pack your bathing suits and we will take care of the rest - down to the sand toys, and surfboards.

Why Barry and Diane Woods chose Malibu

We love the ocean and the beach and had been looking for years for a home to open on this private stretch of 23 homes. We lived in the downstairs house for 8 years and rented the upper unit to guests who appreciated the location. We have since purchased another beach home a few miles away and now rent the lower, larger unit also to guests with discriminating tastes. It is quiet and out of the hustle and bustle of the town center, yet remains only a 20 minute drive away.

What makes this House unique

This house is the upper one of a duplex, right on the beach in Malibu. The other house, 3 bedroom, 3 bath, may be rented separately, or in conjunction with this house for large family vacations, where 5 bedrooms, 5 baths are a perfect fit. You may see the other house on HomeAway Listing #4105441, for pictures, amenities and specifics.

                                                              This was a first time experience using VRBO and first time experience in staying at Barry & Diane Woods' property......Could not have been better. The first meeting with Diane was great and very hospitable. The house and property simply could not have been nicer, well kept and clean. When they say, "remodeled" they mean it - Beautiful. The view can not (repeat, can not) be beat - Quiet, private, scenic. In addition, Diane was able to point us to some great restaurants that were clearly off the beaten path and wonderful.

                                                              I think if you are thinking about using VRBO, it's a home run. If you are thinking about a Malibu location, you simply can't go wrong with Barry & Diane's Malibu beach house.

                                                              Thank you - GREAT experience.

                                                              Chris, it was great to host you and Patrice and I am so glad you found the house to be everything you had hoped for, and that Patrice enjoyed her first trip to Southern California. I am happy that Diane's "tips" were of service to you, as there are definitely great finds in Malibu, and she is always happy to help our guests make the most of their stay. Hopefully, you will make it back again, soon. Thanks again for staying in Malibu! Safe travels wherever you go! ~Barry

                                                              This our second visit to Malibu and this house. We love everything about it. The deck is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy listening to the ocean. The beach out front is seldom crowded and the house is situated away from most of the hustle and bustle of Malibu. We will definitely return.

                                                              A beautiful, well appointed ocean front home directly above the water with a friendly and thoughtful host.

                                                              Barry genuinely cares and was a pleasure to work with.

                                                              This is a must stay to witness the beauty of an incredibly quiet and peaceful part of Malibu. Literally you'll feel as if you're "King of the World" here!

                                                              Stunning & tranquil.

                                                              Warmly, Jeff & Paula

                                                              Great Malibu beach experience!!

                                                              Richard C.

                                                              House was very nice and perfect for 4 people. The deck was awesome. We BBQ'd 2 days and had a great time lounging and relaxing on the deck or beach. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because it was far from everything. If you are looking to bunker down and enjoy a remote relaxing vacation this is the place. The owners were great in their communication and Jeff (owners brother) was there to welcome us and show us the house and give us details of the surrounding area. Thank you Barry and Diane for sharing your home with others. We will be back again!

                                                              Thank you Richard for spending your holiday at our piece of Paradise. Yes, the house is about 30 minutes from the center of everything, including the traffic, noise, and crowds. We try to make it clear we are a bit out, but not so far that you can still take a short drive to a half a dozen restaurants.

                                                              Happy you made the use of the BBQ facilities, after a day on the beach, lounging on the deck with a drink and bbq is the best! Hope to see you again.

                                                              Barry & Diane

                                                              Barry and Diane's home was very special - well equipped, directly on the Pacific Ocean, glorious views and very comfortable for our family. The master suite loft was very comfortable - great views, light and breezes and the ocean front deck was amazing. Barry was very nice and easy to deal with as was his daughter-in-law, Erin, who graciously welcomed us upon our arrival. We felt we had the true California coast experience!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you so much Jamie, for spending your holiday in our little slice of paradise. You were truly blessed with great weather, and the ocean breezes definitely take the sting out of the weather when it gets quite warm. I am so thrilled that Erin was able to meet you and acquaint you with the property, since I became unavailable. If anyone knows and loves Malibu, it's surfer girl Erin, a true beach spirit.

                                                              If you are ever in our neck of the woods, I hope you will call and come join us for a drink. As you know, the sunsets are amazing and to sit and relax on the deck is a feeling long remembered.

                                                              Safe travels and hope you return soon.
