About the property

House, 4/5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 10-13)

With private stairs to your own dry, sandy beach in a cove with surfing, swimming and fishing, on a dead-end street, this comfortable home has everything to make your stay one of your best vacation memories. There is a new gourmet kitchen, great room, dinning room with seating for 10, den and two master bedrooms, all on the water. The water-front rooms each have floor to ceiling windows with spectacular ocean views and each has its own deck.

Furnishings are ample and comfortable, including interesting, hand-made seats and benches, antiques and fine art. There are skylights in the hallways and bathrooms. There are fireplaces in the living room, den and master bedroom. There is a hot water shower right on the beach. Its great for families with children.

On secluded Latigo Cove the ocean is filled with amazing birds, porpoises and whales. There is a good surf break, a child's swimming channel and tidepools at the point. It is on a quiet dead end street, off PCH, making it perfect for swimming, boating, fishing, surfing or just relaxing. Kayaks (if you know how) are included. Take a great hike in Solstice State Park to the waterfall in Corral Canyon or walk along the beach at low tide to Paradise Cove and its often photographed Beach Cafe and local's bar. We are only two miles to Pepperdine, the Civic Center and the famous Malibu Colony, Surfrider Beach & the Pier.

Memories made here last forever.

Leah and I have lived here since buying the house in 1979; we raised our three children here and loved every minute; I am a retired maritime lawyer (Of Counsel to Parker Mills LLP) who has always loved the sea; Leah is a pediatric neuropsychologist; we have a second home in Aspen so when we are not in Malibu we are often there; we love our home and enjoy sharing it with others

DENNIS OR LEAH purchased this house in 1979

Why DENNIS OR LEAH chose Malibu

beautiful private cove, great beach, abundant sea life, incredible sunrises and sunsets, friendly neighbors, only 25 houses on dead end private street, no highway noise and a warm, comfortable house to insure a great stay.

What makes this house unique

Egrets sit on the kelp, pelicans dive for food, porpoise play in the surf, whales spout and it all happens right in front of the balcony

Malibu Secluded Beachfront Home on the Sand
average rating of 5.0 based on 18 reviews


  • 5 of 5

My daughter, who lives in California, wanted us (from back east) to have a California/Malibu expierence for her wedding. This house provided that perfect setting. Access to the beach, lawn chairs, surfing and kayaks added to this house. My mom, who does not like the sand of the beach, could also be a part of the beach action by just sitting on the deck. Low tide we could walk the beach for about a mile. Everything needed seemed to be within decent driving distance. Santa Monica Pier was only about 20 – 30 minutes away. Restaurants (Neptune’s Net from Fast and Furious, Spruzzo’s Italian and Twisted Oak Tavern) are very accessible. Walking in nearby Solstice Canyon was a bonus. A lot of other features that helped with the stay. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to get away and/or loves the beach and ocean.

My wife and I needed a short vacation and found this property to be ideal. It is right on the beach. Kayaks, surfboards and wetsuits are included. Owners and manager are extremely responsible and attentive. Plus, it is not on PCH so it is quiet and has parking. We could not have asked for more. We highly recommend it.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We booked this wonderful beachfront home for our family reunion with cousins, and we had a great time enjoying the amenities and activities in and around this house. The kayaks and beach chairs provided tons of entertainment when the tide was high, and when the tide was low, the tide pools were a thrill . We even saw a baby sea lion! The beach and nearby walks - to Paradise Cove and Solstice Canyon - were great fun during the day. The BBQs and well stocked pantry made meals easy and simple to organize. The ample parking is a huge benefit, often difficult to find at these beachfront properties. The owners were very helpful in accommodating our requests, and made our family event a great experience for all.

Owner's Response: Hi Mudita: It sounds like your vacation and reunion were everything we had both hoped it would be and we are so happy for you as well as vicariously happy ourselves for the opportunity to provide it for you. We hope that happiness revisits you regularly the whole year. Regards, Leah and Dennis

Beautiful beach home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 including 3 young grandchildren spent a wonderful weekend enjoying this beach home and it's many amenities. Steps away from a private beach we made good use of the provided chairs, toys, kayaks, paddle boards and even wet suites. The ample home was nicely furnished with art and lots of books making us feel very comfortable. Kitchen was updated and very user friendly .Owner was accessible by email for all of our quick questions. We had a great time and would highly recommend.

Once in a lifetime vacation - well maybe not once

  • 5 of 5

If you know Malibu and the Pacific Coast highway, you know there are scores of homes on the beach - but also right on the highway. Dennis and Leah's home is one of the few that are right on the beach but way off the road. That means very quiet, except for the glorious sound of the surf. The house is luxurious, spacious and well equipped - you will want for nothing. We spent a week there with family and friends. It's perfect for just hanging out and relaxing, soaking up the sun on comfortable deck chairs, walking on the beach, surfing or kayaking. Our daughters wedding kept us busy for the first couple days but I just kept wanting to get back to the house and chill.

If you want to get out, you are only 20 minutes from the Santa Monica pier, and just a little further to all the greater LA area attractions. Malibu itself is 10 minutes away with all that you really need. Cool farmer's market there on Sundays.

The best part is the hospitality and responsiveness of the owners and the property manager. We were made to feel like family. No hassles, no problems. Hope we have the opportunity to come back some day.

Owner's Response: Hi Tom: It always feels good to be appreciated but particularly nice coming from one who is really a local and appreciates the special pleasures of a home off the highway, on a quiet street and with such a great beach. So glad you enjoyed it. Hope you find the time to do it again. Warm regards, Leah and Dennis

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so very much for allowing me to use your beach house to stage an amazing proposal for my fiancee. Your water front property served as the most elaborate and amazing moment for me and my soon to be wife. Your home has an amazing view that overlooks the beach and is intimate which made the proposal ten times better. Thank you so much!
