Great Malibu beach experience!!

  • 4 of 5

House was very nice and perfect for 4 people. The deck was awesome. We BBQ'd 2 days and had a great time lounging and relaxing on the deck or beach. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because it was far from everything. If you are looking to bunker down and enjoy a remote relaxing vacation this is the place. The owners were great in their communication and Jeff (owners brother) was there to welcome us and show us the house and give us details of the surrounding area. Thank you Barry and Diane for sharing your home with others. We will be back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Richard for spending your holiday at our piece of Paradise. Yes, the house is about 30 minutes from the center of everything, including the traffic, noise, and crowds. We try to make it clear we are a bit out, but not so far that you can still take a short drive to a half a dozen restaurants. Happy you made the use of the BBQ facilities, after a day on the beach, lounging on the deck with a drink and bbq is the best! Hope to see you again. Barry & Diane

Barry and Diane's home was very special - well equipped, directly on the Pacific Ocean, glorious views and very comfortable for our family. The master suite loft was very comfortable - great views, light and breezes and the ocean front deck was amazing. Barry was very nice and easy to deal with as was his daughter-in-law, Erin, who graciously welcomed us upon our arrival. We felt we had the true California coast experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jamie, for spending your holiday in our little slice of paradise. You were truly blessed with great weather, and the ocean breezes definitely take the sting out of the weather when it gets quite warm. I am so thrilled that Erin was able to meet you and acquaint you with the property, since I became unavailable. If anyone knows and loves Malibu, it's surfer girl Erin, a true beach spirit. If you are ever in our neck of the woods, I hope you will call and come join us for a drink. As you know, the sunsets are amazing and to sit and relax on the deck is a feeling long remembered. Safe travels and hope you return soon. Barry & Diane

Classic Malibu beach home

  • 5 of 5

My family of three fit perfectly into the upper uit of this two unit home. The best part of our time in Malibu was the endless hours spent on the large and luxurious deck watching surfers and sunsets. The upper bedroom was peaceful and comfortable even had an apple computer and printer that I reluctantly used for a bit of work. Perfect location. Our hosts Barry and Diane addressed all questions. They really care about their guests which makes your stay even better. Good value given the accommodations and prices in the area. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable time.

Breathtaking View!

  • 5 of 5

Loved every moment of our stay at this gorgeous beach house and so appreciate Barry & Diane for sharing it with us!!! The deck is where we spent a majority of our time, it was perfect and so unbelievably gorgeous. We enjoyed our time and it was sad to leave. Barry and Diane were amazing hosts and wonderful at communicating. The house itself is wonderful and the upstairs bed is comfy and you can hear the waves all night as you sleep. My only complaint would be I could not go for a morning jog on the beach because the tide was high, but that doesn't take anything away from the house and its breathtaking views. It was a small and quiet stretch of houses which was so nice and relaxing. My 2.5 yr old son stayed as well and Barry and Diane were gracious enough to provide baby gates and with those the house and deck worked out perfectly. We could relax on the deck while he was next to us playing with his toys. If you're thinking of staying here, don't ponder anymore......just book it! You won't be disappointed!! Enjoy the slice of heaven! The deck is just so perfect that even if the house was only a studio, it would still be worth it, with a deck like that all you need is a place to sleep. :) Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Diane and I are so thrilled you had a wonderful time! I apologize for the high tides, I am looking into methods to control them but have had no luck so far! Depending upon the season and time of day, one may get a huge expanse of sand and beach, or, as you experienced, very little. We are lucky in that righ around the point is a great walking beach and of course 7 minutes down the road is Zuma. The roof top deck has always been the highlight and we are happy the weather was accommodating for you. We hope to see you back again!

Breath taking oceanfront views, natures lovers stay here and surfers

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at your amazing oceanfront property! We have fallen in love with it! What a wonderful relaxing vacation we had! We were able to see a whale, dolphin and several seals playing in the waves. We were happy to find that the home look exactly like the pictures. It had great beach access, with several beach toys available. And there were beautiful hikes within walking distance of the property. The owners were amazing. So helpful with tips on the property, tips on the beach toys and just information on Malibu in general. We definitely will come back to this property again. I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Fantastic! Diane and I are so happy you had such an amazing holiday. It is so hard to put into words the sheer joy and beauty of seeing all the sea life and just having the opportunity to experience what we get to see so often. You are always welcomed to return again, and the winter brings different and as amazing views and opportunities. Thank you so much!

Perfect Weekend - Gorgeous Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the property are extremely responsive and accommodating. They left a gift basket with snacks and wine for us upon arrival. They even put a honey ham on hold for us at a nearby grocery store when we inquired about where to get one for our Easter dinner. The house was very clean, tastefully decorated, well equipped to make dinners at home, sits in a quiet location, direct private access to the beach, and expansive views of the ocean and gorgeous sunsets. The house has an incredible deck area for sunning, lounging, dining or just hanging out and playing games.

My only less positive comments: although advertised as a 2 bedroom, it’s really a one bedroom with the living area converting into a second bedroom via pocket doors and no closet. The living room has a futon and trundle. This probably works well if you are staying in the home with kids, but we were 4 adults, so it was exactly ideal, but manageable. The living room has it's own bathroom with shower. The upstairs bedroom is a tub only, which was disclosed - I simply misread. In addition, there is a queen hide-a-bed couch sitting in the kitchen area, so no real dining area except on the large kitchen island with bar stools.

I still give the place 5 stars as the owners responsiveness and thoughtfulness made up for the slight layout issues.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us, Diane and I are thrilled that you had a wonderful time. We also very much appreciate the feedback on the "2nd" bedroom. It is strange that we were not really made aware of it until now, and definitely see your point, and how it may not always be suitable. I will be changing the wording on the listing to reflect that the bedroom is actually a convertible den, no closet and pocket doors. Again, than you for the kind review and bringing the bedroom configuration to our attention.

From the Owner

We love the ocean and the beach and had been looking for years for a home to open on this private stretch of 23 homes. We lived in the downstairs unit half the week for 8 years and rented the upper unit to guests who appreciated the location. We have since purchased another beach home a few miles away and now rent the lower, larger unit also to guests with discriminating tastes. It is quiet and out of the hustle and bustle of the town center, yet remains only a 20 minute drive away.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : LAX at 40 Miles Car: recommended

Imagine waking up and breathing in fresh ocean air while gazing at the vast horizon of the Pacific. This is Malibu - where people from the four corners of the world live and celebrate each day.

Malibu is a community that brings a bit of utopia to your doorstep. It is a place to call home, or a dot on the map that establishes a sanctuary bringing reason to a hectic life. Malibu embodies all that is good: good people, beautiful surroundings, and a community that cares about the quality of life.

We invite you to explore the majestic life of Malibu. It is one of the prime locations in all the world. Just a rocks’ throw away from the city of Los Angeles, Malibu offers the perfect location for a sane life in a complex world.
