About Tara A.
I grew up in Orange County and attended college at UC Irvine. I got my law degree at USC and practiced for several years before having children. I currently live in Brentwood with my husband and two teenage kids. I got my real estate license a few years ago and manage a number of short term rental properties, including two of my own beach properties.
Tara A. purchased this House in 2010
Why Tara A. chose Eastern Malibu
After 5 years of renting beach houses along the Malibu coastline during the summertime, my husband and I decided to buy our own piece of paradise in Malibu to use as a second home. We learned a great deal about what we wanted and put it all into this house. We call it 'The Bu' and it will not disappoint!
What makes this House unique
There is no public access to our beach, so unlike other beaches in Malibu (such as Carbon and La Costa) you won't get swarms of people on the weekends parking out in front of the house. For all intents and purposes, it's a private beach. This is also great if you have a dog because they can run around on the beach without fear of them getting onto to PCH (locals refer to beach as 'Dog's Beach').
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Easy great stay
Great property, super helpful and friendly property manager. Made it seamless!
Great Malibu beach house
We lived our stay here! Comfortable, well- appointed beach house with good vibes all around. The beach is fabulous and perfect for walking and exploring tide pools. Hot tub on the deck can’t be beat. We hope to come back soon!
Tara has a great place and is a super easy-going, professional host. Even snuck in some Mother’s Day flowers. Fabulous.
Great house, idyllic location and superb host.
Laid back beach house
We had a great long weekend with our adult sons on the beach in Malibu. Great location. Great casual vibe. Solid kitchen. Hot tub overlooking the beach and hammock were well used. We ate in every night and met a couple of their friends - it was what being at the beach is all about.
Slice of paradise
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The view is spectacular, you can catch both the sunrise and the sunset from the hot tub on the patio), and we left the doors cracked at night so we could listen to the waves while we slept. We brought our sons (5 and 7) for a weekend getaway and they delighted being so close to the ocean and watching the waves crash against the house (far below). Their bunk beds each had their own TV which they thought was SO cool! The home is perfectly appointed and clean. The beds slept great and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to spend our weekend. Our new favorite spot and we will definitely be back!
Our house is located on the sand in Malibu, in between Moonshadows and Duke's Restaurants. Because there is no public access to our stretch of beach (known by the locals as 'Dog's Beach'), we essentially live on a private beach. You won't get swarms of people, especially in the summers and on the weekends, camping out in front of your house like you get on Carbon and La Costa beach (north of us in Malibu).
You can surf, boogie board, and paddle board right on our beach. Our house is located on a wet/dry beach. That means that during high tide, the water will come up to the house and during low tide, you can go for walks along the beach, explore the tide pools, etc. It's a good idea to check the tide chart at http://www.surf-forecast.com/breaks/Malibu_1/tides/latest when planning your trip and days while staying here. Also, during times of high surf, it can wash away sand, leaving the beach rocky.
Malibu is one of the hottest areas to visit in all of California. Not only does it kiss the Pacific Ocean but it also is minutes from all the downtown attractions. Plus, it is only a few miles from Santa Monica, so the possibilities for activity, adventure, shopping, touring, and relaxation are endless.
Our house is located 2 1/2 miles south of the Malibu Pier/Malibu Country Mart and 8 miles north of the Santa Monica Pier. About an hour's drive to Disneyland; 2 hours to San Diego (Legoland/San Diego Zoo). Close to a number of wonderful hiking and biking trails, parks, horseback riding tours, camping sites, and wine tastings.
