Overview

About the property

When you walk into our house, the din of the traffic on Pacific Coast Highway is absorbed by the soundproof walls. All you are left with is a full view of the ocean, and with the tide coming up under the deck of the main floor, it feels that you are miles out to sea. After taking your shoes off and feeling the soft teak floor on your feet, you might actually start to think you are on the deck of a ship, but as you move through the 11ft glass doors in the living room, the beach appears below you, a reminder that you are safely planted on land.

The house has many amenities you wouldn't find at sea, including 4 full bathrooms, 2 of which have rainhead showers and massaging rocks underfoot. The master bath boasts an ergonomically-shaped bathtub to soak all your cares way. The bathrooms are in short reach of 5 bedrooms that can sleep up to 13 people. The design uses space wisely as each room renders privacy, but doesn't feel cramped.

With private access to the beach you can paddle out to catch a few waves on the private surf break in front of the house, take a kayak for a spin, or just walk along the sand. If you're looking for a more urban adventure, you are only 7 miles from Santa Monica or 1 mile from the Getty Villa, making shopping or sightseeing a short trip. When you're tired and hungry you can head to the hot tub for a quick soak before making dinner in the fully outfitted kitchen. Taking advantage of the kitchen's 2 sinks, 2 ovens, full refrigerator, and beverage fridge, you could feed an entire army if needed. After dinner you can watch the stars while listening to the waves from the top deck, which features a massive patio area with seating and a copper fire pit, and an elevated view of Malibu.

About Haley

I grew up in La Canada, north of downtown Los Angeles, and my family has been in the building business for four generations. I always dreamed of having a place at the beach and I found this property in 2003. I built this house from the ground up, well, actually from way under the ground, up. I really grew to love the unique culture and setting of Malibu. I love bringing my growing family here also.

Haley purchased this house in 2003

Why Haley chose Malibu

We love this spot because it provides us a quiet getaway while within reach of the Palisades, Santa Monica, and Venice. We can spend all day playing in the ocean playground: surfing, kayaking, skimboarding, and stand up paddling.

What makes this house unique

This house is unique because multiple families can stay and they won't feel on top of each other. The sound insulation provides a quiet calm. This house offers a rare beach experience because of the deck overlooking the sand, and the direct access to the beach. Kids can play for hours and the rest of the family can be in and out of the water and the hot tub and everyone can be entertained. We have beach chairs and lounge chairs, too, so you can sit on the dock on the sand and watch the happenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is perfect! I gathered 14 people to celebrate my 40th birthday, and this was the perfect setting. It is even better than the pictures. Haley made the stay welcoming and hassle-free. She thought of everything! The house is spacious with plenty of space for gathering and enough secluded spots for privacy. Entrance is via keypad, so there is no need to coordinate keys with your large group. It is well stocked with everything from towels, beach chairs, kitchen staples, to first aid items. I have literally never been more relaxed. I didn't know it was possible to be this close to the ocean. There were daily sightings of dolphins and seals, and you could see them while lying in bed! You can also see both the sunrise and sunset from the house. This place is paradise. I wept when I left.

This Malibu beach house is absolutely a five star home.

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Malibu beach house for our annual family vacation and could not have been more pleased. All fourteen of us had our own beds, bathroom facilities were more than adequate, and supplies were enough for the entire week. All we had to provide was our food.

The ocean view was spectacular, the waves were mesmerizing, you could sit on one of the balconies and just look and listen for hours. Some or all went hiking, parasailing, kayaking, shopping, or just laid back and read. When you have all fourteen people, ages 77 to 12 say it was one of the best vacations of the 17 our family has taken, you know you have had a five star experience.

Spectacular trip!

  • 5 of 5

We were on a Girls Trip to Malibu and stayed in this beautiful home with all the amenities to make our trip special. This home was clean, well maintained, and had a spectacular view and location. The owner was very helpful with questions concerning grocery stores and restaurant locations. We really liked the central location of the house on the PCH. It was close to Santa Monica, downtown LA, and wonderful restaurants along the coast of Malibu. I would highly recommend this house for your next trip.

Our family had a wonderful stay at this beautiful seaside home. There was plenty of room for all!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect location! We were able to enjoy northern Malibu as well as Santa Monica. There was plenty to do, including bike rentals in Santa Monica and hiking the many Malibu trails. Hayley is an excellent host. She was responsive to our every need and the house was very clean.

Our dolphin friends visited us each morning while we sipped our coffee on the deck. We also were blessed to have a seal drop by one late afternoon. Just amazing!!!

We will definitely return for another visit in the future!!

We Love Modern Malibu Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Haley

This was my family's second stay at the Modern Malibu Beach House. We fell in love the first time and more so this time. Our stay was longer (one week) and we had a great time even though it was warmer back in Chicago. Nothing can ruin a stay there. The views are incredible and the house is massive and peaceful. Huge living room windows, two balconies and a roof top deck - amazing. Thanks for letting us stay again. We would like to stay for a month some time.

Beautiful space & lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home so much! You can't beat the location and view!

The space was very clean and charming. We loved being located right on the beach. The sound and view of the ocean from the home was truly magical.

The host was so nice and easy to work with. I appreciated her kindness and attention to detail.

I highly recommend this home!

Sitting just 7 miles north of Santa Monica, 17 miles from LAX, and within walking distance of Topanga beach. Try Thai Cholada just a few doors up, for excellent thai food. For a morning pastry, hit the Farm Shop in Brentwood, and for lunch or dinner, Malibu Seafood is a must. For ice cream, Sweet Rose Creamery in the Pacific Palisades is great, as is their location in Brentwood.
