CRASHING WAVES are thrilling and calming both at this Malibu Beach villa just 6 miles to/from Santa Monica. Wake to the sounds of the surf and the sights of dolphins and pelicans at play with over 60' of beachfront viewed from EVERY room and much more privacy than most Malibu beach houses.

French doors open onto both a huge sundeck and glassed-in stone patio with beach entrance, built-in BBQ and koi ponds. Stunning, hand-carved teak throughout and Asian antiques distinguish this craftsman home with elegant simplicity and sophistication.

Walk on the sand at Topanga Beach, legendary for world-class surfing and wind sailing. Also convenient to a great selection of restaurants, boutique shopping, movies, health clubs and spas, plus gourmet and health food groceries in Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica's 3rd Street and the Los Angeles International Airport. There is off-street parking for up to 3 cars.

The Living Room features a cozy fireplace and oceanside dining area. A huge Master Suite with double-shower and ample closets is light and airy with antique glass skylights and a Sun/Sitting Room with floor-to-ceiling picture windows. A separate guest room with ocean views, flat-screen TV and private shower bath sleeps 2, and a convertible den with built-in beds comfortably sleeps 3 singles for a total of 7 overnight guests.

Further Details: Lots of closet space, flat screen TV's, built-in Fire Magic BBQ and don't miss the waterfall shower bathroom with stone floor and double sinks.

A garden wall with an authentic Japanese garden provides the utmost privacy. At-home chefs will delight in the kitchen with built-ins, including a sub-zero refrigerator/freezer, new dishwasher, range and microwave including more craftsman touches in hand-carved teak kitchen cabinets, wet bar and inset stone floor.

About Owner

A former print and broadcast journalist, I coach executives to meet the media and face audiences in person at my company, READY FOR MEDIA. Owning a beach house which I like to share with visitors from around the world is a dream come true.

Owner purchased this house in 1981

Why Owner chose Malibu

Growing up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, I fell in love with living on the water. I recreated that for myself on the sands of Malibu Beach with its crashing waves, arching dolphins, stunning starfish and diving pelicans.

What makes this house unique

Unique for Malibu beachfront property is the Japanese zen garden entrance and the succulent garden patio. It's peaceful and exciting, both at once.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kind regards.

Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I walked into the Beauty and the Beach Villa in Malibu, I had a smile on my face. It was exactly as the photographs had represented it but better. Now it was real! I had always had a dream to spend some time in a property with "Floor to Ceiling Windows Overlooking the Ocean in California" and this property lived up to my dream. The Villa is footsteps from the Ocean and I have been mesmerized by the crashing waves every day of my visit and lulled to sleep by them every night. I was looking to spend time cocooning with my creativity. I came to write and read, and watch the ocean as far as the eye can see. Although I have been by myself, I have enjoyed every charming room in the villa, but especially the expansive and wonderful balcony. This property is physically located in a beautiful location, however the charm of the home goes far beyond the ocean and setting. So many properties I researched were cold, characterless and bare bones, obviously decorated to rent out. "Beauty and the Beach" is as the name describes, more than beach, it has a charm, warmth and character which invites you in and will say "I wish you could stay longer" when I leave tomorrow. Search out the details in the pictures and information section, but what you read and see is what you get, from the luxurious linens, cozy slippers and bathrobes, to the Japanese Gardens and koi pond, Rock Waterfall Shower with wonderful soaps and lotions, floor to ceiling windows, Asian sliding door designs, large collection of DVDS, and of course so much more. Anne and has been a perfect hostess, replying in a timely and welcoming manner and Steve and his team, were more than helpful upon check-in. If I could stay longer or on a more permanent basis I would not be writing this referral, as I would want to selfishly keep this secret to myself, however reality sets in, and I must leave this little paradise tomorrow. So I will leave my highest recommendation with you and know that you will enjoy this property immensely also, if you choose to spend some of your life's moments here. Thank-you Anne, Lucky me for researching as hard as I did and uncovering your lovely home "Floor to Ceiling Windows Overlooking The Ocean In California", Susan

Christmas in Malibu...truly on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed stayed here for a week during Christmas vacation. The home was exactly as described, photos accurate, and accommodations were well appointed. The sound of waves crashing made it the perfect beach experience. The area was safe, convenient and great for couples or families. The hostess was very helpful with providing area information and available if necessary. We will definitely return!

Extraordinary vacation

  • 5 of 5

We left the house regretfully this morning at 8:30, knowing it was going to be another beautiful day in paradise. - the water was calm and the sun already shining. My husband and I, as well as our grown-up kids and grandgirls, all had a wonderful time in your beautiful Malibu retreat. It is truly a one-of-a-kind home, and it's easy to see why you love it. We spent the week sunning on the deck, beach combing, listening to the waves crash against the rocks, watching pelicans and simply enjoying one another's company.

It is now back to reality, but I will be in touch before too awfully long to discuss next year's visit.

Again, thank you for your hospitality; it was extraordinary.

Zen living to the rhythm of the crashing waves

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5(2 adults, 3 teens) had an amazing stay in this beautiful beachfront home in Malibu! From the moment you walk through the front gate and descend the steps to this beautiful cottage you are transported to tranquility. The Japanese zen garden is so peaceful, unique, and can be viewed from many of the living areas inside. There are beautiful details in this home... the furnishings, abundant stained glass, and teak/stone floor in the kitchen include a few. We lived on the spacious back deck, but the entire home felt open to the Pacific Ocean. There was plenty of space for the 5 of us. Our favorite local attractions included K's Bakery, Nobu, Solstice Canyon hike, Zuma Beach, Griffith Observatory(go before gets crowded) and shopping! However, it was hard to leave this peaceful environment even to experience all of the wonderful sites of Malibu! Owner responsiveness and customer service also A+...Highly recommend

Beauty and the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Malibu & enjoyed our stay at the house. The house is lovely, very comfortable, in a great location & has every amenity you could ever need. The best thing about the house is that it is literally on top of the water, whether you open the beautiful double doors throughout the house or not, the sound of the ocean is mesmerizing. Love the way you are locked in off the street in a beautifully landscaped courtyard complete with koi pond. Our teenage girls stayed in the awesome separate guesthouse. Love the quiet, private beach & had several dolphin sightings! Highly recommend & hope to return soon.

Best Vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

We are over the moon and so happy in your beautiful place! The kids were crazy excited watching a school of leopard sharks this morning and I have barely moved from the deck! Your home is so beautiful.

We celebrated family birthdays by grilling burgers and eating as the sun set. My animal lovers saw sea lions, leopard sharks and dolphins up close. We ate at 7 wonderful restaurants, basked in the starry sky at night and the sun during the day.

It will truly be one of my "happy places" that I wander to in my mind when the harsh mid-west winters set in.

More than once, each of us has said "This is this best vacation ever!" Thank you again for sharing your home with us and many happy wishes to you and yours!
