Malibu House Rental Photos and Description
4BR steps to Ocean Vacation Rental Malibu, California USA
This large, completely private, southern France-inspired home offers 2,800 square feet of living space. It's situated just a stone's throw from Zuma Beach.
Malibu Beach is decorated with French antiques, and offers charm throughout. It's U-shaped -- with high ceilings and glass bordering a lovely terra-cotta-style courtyard with a complete outdoor living room and fireplace. Situated on a cul-de-sac with no other homes on three sides, it provides an ideal and elegant retreat from which to explore southern California.
A private key provides access to the beach at the end of the cul-de- sac, to private tennis courts in the community,. and a private beach club with lifeguard, children's playground and private beach locker. The beach is ideal for surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, parasailing, or just relaxing. The home is near hiking and horseback riding and it's less than one hour from Hollywood, Ventura, Santa Monica (30 minutes), and most of LA's attractions.
The Neighborhood: Malibu West is a very quiet neighborhood built in the 6Os and now upgraded --- the best place in Malibu for family life and kids as they can ride bikes in the private streets and the Beach Club provides a focus of activity. October - Halloween it is alive with Goblins as everyone in Malibu brings kids here for trick or treat and the homes are transformed into spooky witch houses....
Big shady sycamore trees shade the neighborhood throughout, and the house is located on a private cul de sac across from an open field and then the beach is right across the highway. You can get there by a private keyed path that goes under the highway so no need to cross PCH. Also very few cars pass the house as it sits by itself at the end of the neighborhood.

*Golf - a wonderful club open to the public 20 minutes away in the Santa Monica Mountains right behind the house.

About Carla --- Member of Homeaway since 2005
Hi I am retired business professional and have two wonderful grown sons ( who teach surfing on occasion) . I have lived in Malibu for 30 years and know it well. I rent my home occasionally to travel the world. Renting on this website has introduced me to wonderful families looking for nice beach vacations and I enjoy sharing the beauty and comfort of my home. I live here in the winters and in Maine in the summers and ofter drive the USA to get to Maine or California. So far 16 times... the country is beautiful and varied and I highly recommend the drive someday!!
My dad was a commander in the Navy so we moved all the time so I grew up on both coasts moving every 2 years... hence the wanderlust I suppose. Carla
Carla --- Member of Homeaway since 2005 purchased this house in 2000
Why Carla --- Member of Homeaway since 2005 chose Malibu
I bought my house for its proximity to walk to the beach (5 minutes) and because it was so privately located yet in one of the most 'family friendly' places in Malibu. Also I loved the indoor outdoor feeling of being in a glass house!
What makes this house unique
My favorite thing about my house is the indoor courtyard which the house circles. Every room looks out on it and it is completely private so I can leave all the windows and doors open and hear the fountain running and feel the air circulating.. Its like being outside all the time and flowers all year round are wonderful. It is truly a glass house with skylights and a sheer wall of glass on either side of the living area. And world class Zuma Beach is right out the door.
