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.
Owner purchased this House in 1981
Why Owner chose Eastern 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.
What makes this House unique
Unique for Malibu beachfront property is the privacy ,... beginning with a Japanese zen garden entrance and the succulent garden patio. It's peaceful and exciting, both at once. Our Property Manager will be there to greet you with the keys, show you around, answer questions and also come to bid you farewell!

Exceeded our expectations!
We chose this beautiful house to get together with old and dear friends from the opposite coast whom we hadn't seen in more than five years. We were looking for a beautiful place to spend some time, walk, relax, have some good meals. The home is so comfortable and well-appointed. Even though we spent the bulk of our time on one of the beautiful decks, we appreciated the terrific kitchen and variety of living spaces. It was a perfect mini-vacation!
Thank you for your 5-star review and for taking such good care of the property! Am delighted to know that you "couldn't have asked for a better experience than staying in your beautiful house. We saw dolphins and seals, all sorts of birds and spectacular sunrises and sunsets. It was a restorative and fun few days. We'll be back. Thank you -- Ruth"
Do come again to nature’s playground!
Very Nice Home
We really enjoyed our first trip to Malibu (except for the traffic) and the house while definitely different was very nice. My husband who is 6 ft struggled with the shower in the master bathroom though. It is really meant for a much shorter person. I am 5' 2" and the shower head was at the top of my head. The shower in the "gate house" also didn't have hot water but wasn't really an issue. My daughter just used the shower in the main house.
We loved that the house was right on the beach but because it's the least rocky spot so did lots of other people.
Thanks for your feedback. It is helpful.
The water in the Guest House goes from hot to cold as your turn it further. And the double shower in the Master is really great fun. I’m so sorry your husband didn't enjoy it.
I wish we would have been asked, so we could have explained how to make every detail of your vacation perfectly delightful. Always, our goal!
Every thing was simply perfect
I had an anmazing vacation with my family. The house is perfectly located
I was very Please with everything especially how clean and well attended the interior and exterior of the house was kept. Trust me this is the perfect place for a group of 8 to spend some time together.
You've been a delight to host and a joy to know.
Perfect location and perfect home.
And perfect guests!
Thank you and do come again. Anne
Amazing house, great location, perfect for us
The house is fantastic. It was the perfect size for us and our three kids. The views from all of the rooms are spectacular. The large back deck overlooking the ocean is amazing. The house is so close to the water. High tide is cool with the water approaching the house, and lower tides provides plenty of beach for daily walks and playing. We got wetsuits for the kids and they had a blast bodysurfing. The house is close to Malibu restaurants and attractions and a quick drive to Santa Monica and Venice Beach. We also did a day trip to Disneyland and it was very doable. We loved being in this house. It’s peaceful and beautiful yet convenient. Anne was great to work with and very responsive. We highly recommend.
So happy to share all that you and your family enjoyed! Fun guests make for splendid vacations.
Take care and come again.
Everything was great. Enjoyed the house and the beach. Couldn’t be better
Delighted to host our Russian "neighbors!" So happy you enjoyed your tour of California and Malibu. Here's to promoting peace through friendship and hospitality. Best always, Anne

Enter this very private property through a walled traditional Japanese garden with koi ponds to both the Guest and Main Houses . Beach-combing is marvelous. It's soul-food. The tide pools on your beach walks are full of starfish and the dolphins come to play in full view of your 60' of beach front, right on the sand! Don't miss the new beachfront Nobu or classic Cholada for Thai. Equidistant (just 6 miles in each direction) between happening-Santa Monica and laid-back Malibu for high-end shopping at Maxfields, Ralph Lauren, Henri Buggeler leather goods, Mac, Sephora et al Other Activities: Enjoy the seeing the Getty Villa, less than a mile away.
