"Location, Location, Location!" reads a recent 5-star review! "What a gem nestled directly on the beach in beautiful Malibu!

About 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.

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!

A charming house in Malibu

  • 5 of 5

Nice location on the beach. Exceptional home with Japanese-influenced landscape, with a small waterfall and a koi pond with stepping stones. Well cared for succulents and other patio plants. Just beautiful. The large, partly covered veranda overlooks the ocean. It is protected from winds by a transparent waist-high glass wall. Comfortable outdoor furniture. It is obvious that the interior was decorated with loving care. Beautiful oriental sculptures, carved wood panels and interesting tribal masks. In addition to the regular bathroom and shower, there is an interesting grotto with a waterfall shower. We had 4 visitors for a day and there was plenty of room. There is a separate guest bedroom. Kitchen has quality appliances. Everything worked as expected. Grocery stores are nearby. We were met by and shown around by a helpful young couple. The owner and the management company arranged all details to make sure we were comfortable. We'll be back.

Do yourself a favor and choose Beauty and the Beach for your next home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This property was a hidden treasure just off the PCH. On the water with breathtaking views. The entire back of the house opens up to allow supple breezes throughout. The vintage Asian influence is incredibly cozy, welcoming and peaceful.

All the conveniences of home to brew your own coffee and make the breakfast of YOUR choice and overlook the ocean as the marine layer begins to lift. Off in the distance Paddle boarders and surfers hitting the water early. Complete and utter peace. Location is perfect with tons of shopping and restaurants nearby. Great take out or delivery choices as well.

Make the right choice and choose "Beauty and the Beach" for your next home away from home.

Great location in many ways

  • 5 of 5

In addition to being a beautiful spot on the beach, having a home on a road off the PCH made driving and parking very easy

.

Also we all loved the flow of the house and the sleeping quarters within steps of the waves!

Hope we can experience your beautiful home again soon!

An ideal Malibu retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property for three nights - we were all comfortable with the sleeping arrangement; you can't beat waking up to the sound of crashing waves! The outdoor patio is perfect for watching the sunset. The house is equipped with all your needs and then some! Beach chairs, boogie boards, sandals, robes, kitchenware... it's all there! The location is really fantastic if you want to get to Brentwood / Santa Monica for dinner or go the opposite direction and head into Malibu. Communicating with owner & property manager was SO easy; both incredibly accommodating! Highly recommend for a nice getaway.

Please come again! Best always, Anne

Oriental antiques and hand-carved teak provide the height of sophistication and warmth. 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.
