Malibu Oceanfront 3bd/2ba on the SAND!

Two level, Nantucket style chic and modern home, fully remodeled in 2011. All new wood floors and kitchen cabinets and marble counters installed in March 2015. Located directly on the sand on what is essentially a private beach (there is no public access). Upper deck has a built in bench, lounge chairs, and a stainless steel gas bbq. Lower deck has 15 foot long built in bench with cushions, a large dining table which seats 10, hot tub, outdoor refrigerator, heated shower and floating daybed. Relax and watch the sunset on the two lifeguard chairs situated on the lower deck. This house offers two bedrooms with queen beds and large flat screen TVs and a third bedroom with full-sized bunk beds, each with their own TV. Also included are state of the art kitchen appliances, FIOS with hundreds of channels, large walk-in master closet, WiFi, washer and dryer, security system, and Sonos 4-zone stereo system which allows you to play different music in each zone and at different volume level (including upper and lower decks). You can surf, boogie board, and paddle board right on our beach and, at low tide, you can explore the tide pools and go for walks along the beach.* House is just minutes away from Malibu Country Mart/Malibu Pier, Santa Monica Pier, 3rd Street Promenade, and lots of great restaurants and shopping.

* Our house is located on a wet/dry beach. That means that during high tide, the water does come up to the house. Also, during times of really high surf, some of the sand can be washed away, leaving the beach rocky. This condition does resolve but it can take anywhere from a day or two up to a couple weeks.

Very Good

“This is the Spot!”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2014

My family and I from Winnipeg stayed here for a week and loved every moment of it. The house is clean, functional, and very well located in Malibu. The access to the beach and nearby restaurants is excellent. If you are not afraid of cooking a few home cooked meals during a vacation, for a family of 3-5 people this is an ideal and very reasonably priced California option. Thanks Tara - well done!

“Perfect Vacation!”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2014

A perfect house, a perfect location, a perfect vacation! We read all the wonderful reviews before we booked this Malibu beach house and it was everything we read about and so much more. It was just beautiful! We would book it again in a heartbeat. We didn't want to leave. Thank you Tara and Jason for our dream vacation.

“Totally awesome beach house in the 'bu”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2013

We have stayed twice in this lovely beach house in Malibu, and we love it! My family of four, plus a couple of guests, spent two long weekends in October, and it's like nowhere else we've ever stayed. The home features two levels, both with porches that have panoramic, grand ocean views, and a hot tub on the lower level, with stairs that stretch down right into the sand. Many beach toys and paddle surfboards are provided. At high tide, the waters come up to the house: perfect white noise for sleep or a nap on the comfy couch, and at low tide, there are tide pools to explore sea life, and to go for a long walk along the coast. Many different types of birds fly along the water, and usually you get an excellent dolphin show at least once a day. There are two bedrooms on the bottom level, plus an outdoor bed hanging on ropes; and a room with two bunk beds (each with their own televisions!), on the upper level. There is a full bathroom on each floor. There is a large-screen television in the upstairs den, and both bedrooms have medium-sized flat screens. The stereo system has speakers throughout that can be individually controlled. The house is clean, and impeccably decorated with beachy touches everywhere. The kitchen is incredibly well-stocked as far as utensils go (bring your own food). Grocery stores are nearby. We also stayed at this adorable house last year at the same time, with my sons, one of whom was going through brain cancer treatment, and we just had to come back again this year. We had a couple of guests come each night and sleep over. The family have photos on the wall and scrapbooks of their summers past, which lends a spirit of love to the home that other beach houses where I've stayed before have lacked. See below a few of our own photos from our stays.

“Truly beautiful, relaxing, private”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2013

We spent many hours looking for the perfect house to rent in Malibu and could not be happier that we ended up in this one! It was perfect - you're right on the beach/ocean, which is really an incredibly feeling. We saw dolphins pretty much every day, also incredible. Ahead of our trip, we planned out a couple of 'outside' things we wanted to do, restaurants we wanted to try, and while we did manage to explore Malibu a little bit while we were there, the beach house was sooo relaxing and beautiful and well-equipped that it was hard to leave! We spent our time hanging-out/lounging on the 2 decks/patios, walking on the beach, cooking amazing meals in the beautiful and fully-stocked kitchen, and just staring at the amazing ocean and city in the far distance. As you can probably tell - we loved every minute of it!

“Sweet Malibu Vacation!”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2013

I just spent my second summer vacation renting this great house on the beach in Malibu. I must admit, I am a little jealous of the owners because they get to stay much more often then I do! I am thankful that they do share there beautiful home with others. To sit on that great deck while the water splashes close to the house is about as good as it gets. The private beach is shared with so many nice people. I am not sure there is a better vacation possible!

“Exquisite tasteful comfy cozy Malibu paradise”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

This is a very charming, tastefully decorated inviting beach house. Everyone that walked in loved it. You can't beat the sand and surf , the two levels of cozy rooms with inviting beds and pillows. It was such a pleasure to relax and enjoy Malibu. My kids were in heaven and I got to just take it all in" I will definitely plan to go back!

“Beyond Fabulous”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2013

First let me say the pictures don't do this house justice. It shows even better in person. Tara & Jason have created a very special, cozy & loving home. They were perfectly attentive when we needed something, like the WiFi stopped working or getting the hot tub man to come out. They were friendly and super easy to work with. They were also super flexible on check in & check out, which was awesome. The house has plenty of space, two incredible outdoor decks equipped with BBQ, fridge, ice maker, day bed, large dining room table, long bench for laying out & hot tub. We'd end our day in the hot tub having a beer and staring out at the horizon. Speakers throughout the house. Dolphin & seal sightings almost daily. The tide chart in the kitchen was incredible, it totally helped us plan our day to know when to be outside and enjoy the most exposed beach. When the tide was out, the rocks were fully exposed and you could spend hours exploring the tide pools, finding starfish, muscles, fish & even an octopus. The far north end of the this beach was amazing for boogie boarding, which we did daily. The beach is private to just those who have access through a house, so never crowded. We'd enjoy a moonlight walk or an early morning walk with a hot mug of tea and our dog- and yes, the house & the beach is dog friendly, which really made our trip. Our little guy ran his brains out on the beach, which was pure joy to watch. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. There were plenty of towels and beach toys, so no need to bring your own. The location is perfect, totally centrally located in Malibu, you couldn't ask for better. My husband, who went kicking & screaming into doing a "stay-cation" (we are locals), half way through our stay said he definitely wanted to rent again. We barely left the house, every time we thought of eating out or going to another beach, we were like why would we leave here? It's perfect. Did I mention it was perfect?!

Amazing experience in every way! Home was exactly as pictured and described. Tara was attentive and wonderful to work with. Doesn't get anymore beachfront than this. Loved having the hot tub with the cool evenings and water being a bit chilly. Slept like a baby to the sound of waves crashing. House was stocked with all essentials we needed from cooking to laundry! Music outside on the iPod, tv in every room, huge master closet. Seriously could go on and on! Calm and inviting decor. Felt very at home in this house. Pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves. So peaceful and beautiful. Dolphins, seals, beautiful birds. New selection of shells to see everyday. Our 8 and 15 year old kids loved it and were happy just hanging out and relaxing. Close to stores and restaurants but felt secluded. No traffic noise besides an occasional siren. Had a bit of "June Gloom" during our stay but was still beautiful. Loved being able to BBQ on the deck and have a better view for dinner than any restaurant. Can't wait to go back!!

“California Living at Its Best!”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2013

It was a magical 3 day weekend with the family...We didn't want to leave. Nothing like waking up to hear the sounds of the ocean, and taking a long stroll down the beach. This home is fully furnished with everything that you would need for a beach get-a-way. We loved using the BBQ and taking a nice jacuzzi! Beautiful weather and best location - Not too far into Malibu but just enough you feel away from it all! I even had the chance to go boogie boarding right in front on the house! My family and I can't wait to rent the beach houase again!
