Your Private and Lovingly Appointed Beachtown Cottage Awaits Your Arrival.
Our Malibu Park cottage is less than a mile, (or a 5 minute drive) from world famous Zuma Beach. We have the best of both worlds: if you walk or drive two blocks up our street you will find the Santa Monica Mountains trailhead for expansive ocean view hiking. Our cottage is cozy and private, with a King size antique brass bed in the main bedroom and a comfortable Queen sofa bed in the living area. This small guest unit was built in 1950, and is lovingly appointed with everything you will need for your Malibu vacation: it is also a perfect workspace for creatives/writers, with an outdoor bar and a private sitting area for reading and relaxing!

About Jennifer Pietro
I am a mother, a mediator and a Malibu resident, and I love my "Old Malibu" home. Built in 1950, our home was the first home in our Malibu Park neighborhood, and we are only the second lucky owners of this classic Malibu ranch home. Our guest cottage is also circa 1950, and we love to share it with travelers who appreciate a more rustic (yet very charming) space.... take a look at the pictures, which will give you a feel for our home and property! The beach is five minutes away, and we have an ocean view from the front of our property (though not from the guest house). You'll enjoy complete privacy in a cozy space with loving touches to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable!
Jennifer Pietro purchased this Cottage in 1993
Why Jennifer Pietro chose Western Malibu
This is a private guest house located on a classic "Old Malibu" property, built in 1950 and happily and permenently occupied now by our family. We love to share our space with guests, but we are committed to offering complete privacy so that you may completely rest and relax while you are here. There is always someone home to assist you with arrival and departure, and to answer any questions you might have about how to spend your leisure time in our beautiful neighborhood. World famous Zuma Beach is less than a mile away, and the Santa Monica Mountains trailhead at the end of our street offers spectacular ocean view hiking. Our neighborhood has beautiful, dark night skies, and our beaches are pristine. The private beaches of Lechusa and Broad Beach are easily accessible, and less than a five minute drive from our home for long, lazy walks. Zuma Beach is a County Beach, where you can find lifeguards for safety, bathrooms, and a more lively crowd, as well as miles of beaches, and lots of opportunities for surfing, boogie boarding and paddle boarding!
What makes this Cottage unique
Truly: you will love being in Malibu if you want to be surrounded by natural beauty: the ocean, the mountains, the laid back beach days and the dark, starry nights. If you want to shop and dine in style, you can always drive down PCH to the Cross Creek shopping area and take all of that in as well! There you will find all of the major fashion brands, as well as a variety of options for dining and star-watching.... especially during the week when our locals come out of the woodwork to do their errands and shopping!

Cozy beautiful beach bungalow
We loved the cottage in Malibu and were sad we only stayed one night. We’d love to come back during the summer to take advantage of the walking distance to the beach. The bed was amazingly large and comfortable and the windows provided natural light while still being private. I would definitely recommend to friends.
A perfect little cottage up in the woods near the beach. Filled with classic Malibu touches: dolphins, seashells, Indian shower curtains, huge brass bed, and a cool 50's pickup in the yard. Great alternative to standard Marriott rooms. Everything you need in a lush, tropical environment.
A one night “retreat” before my spiritual retreat!
Incredibly welcoming hosts despite my late arrival. Clean and cozy accommodations. Blissful quiet allowed for much needed rest and focus for writing for my upcoming personal retreat weekend
As close to perfection as possible
Everything was fantastic and we had a great time. Thank you for everything!
Clean, cozy cottage
This charming cottage was perfect for me and my husband. We were there for our daughter's wedding and it was located close to the venue. The place was very clean and there was a bottle of wine waiting for us. Only negative is that there is no view. For us, that did not matter as we were only there for 2 nights.
Quaint, Quiet and Comfy - Loved It!
Full of laid-back Malibu beach personality, we loved staying at Malibu Cottage! It is small and cozy - surrounded by beautiful and quiet tropical hillsides. The bed is super comfortable and the sitting area is great for lounging. We loved having coffee and wine out on the little patio area. Co-owners, Jennifer and Carol, are both welcoming hostesses and shared lots of great local restaurant suggestions. We look forward to staying again!
We are perfectly located in a neighborhood called "Malibu Park", which is zone "residential rural".... the neighborhood is populated with many nature lovers and environmentally aware people who respect our ocean environment and love the dark skies in the evening. If you want night life, Malibu probably isn't for you, but if you love the ocean, the creatures that live in the ocean, and the mountains that define our community and provide solace and peace, then this is the place for you!
