The cottage was the most perfect place we stayed in the three weeks in California. Right on the beach so that our two teenaged boys could roll straight out of bed into the surf every day and we only just about managed to get them in when it was getting dark! Very very clean house with everything provided for and...

Management response:

If you want an unforgettable Malibu experience, this is the house for you! This two-level cottage is right on the beach, simply step off the lower deck and onto a secluded beach. You can walk to two separate restaurants both north and south of you, but why would you ever want to leave? The house comes with a fully functional...

I don't even know where to start - this was hands-down the best thing I have ever done for a vacation! I live in LA and had some family flying out, and we wanted to spend the weekend in Malibu. However, I was crushed when a work emergency required me to fly out Monday morning, meaning I would miss an...

About the neighbourhood
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).

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/M...
