Unbeatable views, incredibly calming, very special memories

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my husband and 2 young boys and loved every minute. As soon as you shut the front door from the PCH you won’t want to leave. We swam and surfed on the beach, relaxed in the hot tub and enjoyed a Netflix and Chill every evening. It was a complete unwind from city living in London. Thank you Tara!

Wow! Amazing! Book this home now!

  • 5 of 5

I'm a researcher. I check blogs, travel sites, read hundreds of reviews for every place, and usually do more research before deciding. Trust me when I say that you should book Tara's Malibu beach home now if it's available -- this place is incredible!!

Tara's home had everything we wanted plus so much more! The home is absolutely gorgeous. Stylishly decorated with furniture from RH and PB, the home has thoughtful touches throughout, like extra towels, blankets, sheets, plates, spices, soap shampoo, and conditioner. The upstairs of the home is on street level and has a kitchen, a living room, and a balcony with a grill that includes a panoramic view of the ocean. A half bath is also located on this level. We loved streaming some shows at night with the patio doors open, listening to the waves crashing against the home.

The lower level of the home has a full bath, 2 bedrooms with AC in the rooms, and the large patio. The large patio is the STAR of the home. It's where we ate, lounged, and spent most of our time. On the patio is a good size dining table, hot tub, and the cushioned seating shown in the main picture. It also has an outdoor shower (with HOT water -- which is so amazing to experience) and your own private staircase leading to the beach. My son loved the sand the sand toys and trucks that were provided. A boogie board and surf board were also provided, but we didn't use them.

I cannot overstate what an incredible thing it is to have your own staircase going to the beach and HOT water on an outside shower. I look at so many homes in Malibu with shared beach entrances. Let me tell you, it's totally worth the upgrade to spend a bit more to have a private entrance to the beach. Not having to be hit with cold water every time I rinsed off sand from the beach was heavenly.

The other feature that really puts this home over the top is the hot tub. My 16 month old didn't want to get out. He used it like his own personal swimming pool throughout our trip. You can control the temperature, which was great to make sure it didn't get too hot while he used it. And, sitting in the hot tub, looking out to the ocean, star gazing at night. It really is pure bliss.

Only one suggestion , and that is to add some cushioned lounge chairs on the large deck, but that is me being super picky.

To top it all, Tara is so easy to deal with. She quickly answered questions, responded to concerns, and was always available with a quick text.

Can't say enough

  • 5 of 5

My only hesitation in writing this review is that I want it to be available whenever I can get out there! But the owners are so awesome that I am taking a chance on losing future opportunities in order to gush for them. I spent a lot of time researching to find the right place for our family - and this house is IT. The perfect balance of beautifully set up and chill. Oh, and literally right on the beach. What a way to wake up every day!!!

The beds are comfortable and clean, the furniture is simple and nice to sit on, the kitchen is great to cook in, and the jacuzzi is a magical touch. I felt like I was transported back in time with this house that hasn't been ruined by gaudiness or bad taste. Just a simple, beautiful, getaway, dream beach house. We literally never left the house but to grab a few more groceries one day. Thank you for making my precious few days off with my family the best I could have ever hoped for!

Little Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here - in fact sitting here on the deck writing this review, I am trying to convince myself it is time to go! The house had everything we needed. It was well stocked with essential items you need in the kitchen, it is well maintained and super comfortable. The only negative would be the very minimal parking in front of the house, but there is plenty of space across the street. In addition, Tara was a great host that kept in touch and was very accommodating to our needs. Great beach house to get away from it all!

Lovely place on dog friendly beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, kids and dogs had a fantastic time at this beach house. It is right on the water - it was wonderful to see, hear and smell the ocean during our time there. Be sure to look up when high and low tide is so you can maximize beach time. Great for walking and tide pools. Nice kitchen and ocean views from both decks and living room! Close to lots of restaurants, grocery, etc. Owner was responsive and helpful.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to surprise my parents with a weekend getaway and Malibu was my first choice. As soon as I saw this property, I knew that my parents, boyfriend, myself and my dogs would love it. We all loved it so much that we cooked each meal and really never left the property. The decks, hot tub, and private beach made it easy for us to enjoy the sun and each meal together.

Tara was also a great host; very accommodating and clear in communication.

My family and I plan on coming back again and again!!

Nearest Airport
19 Miles
Car: recommended

This house is located 1/2 mile north of Moonshadows Restaurant, on a stretch of beach called "Dog Beach". It's a 15 minute drive from Santa Monica/Third Street Promenade and about a 5 minute drive to the Malibu Pier and the Malibu Country Mart. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. Great hiking and bike trails within 10-15 minutes of the house.

This 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 when planning your trip and days while staying here. Also, during times of high surf, it can wash away sand, leaving the beach rocky.
