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 SEIDER purchased this house in 1979

Why DENNIS OR LEAH SEIDER chose Central 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

This house is wonderful! I've stayed up and down the coast and this little pocket is my absolute favorite. During low tide, you can walk for miles. The house is warm and welcoming. The set up is perfect for either a small or large group. The kitchen is stocked with anything you need. The beds are comfy, plenty of towels and the master bedroom is quite large. The decks are perfect for coffee and cocktails. 2 large Tv's, one in master and one in den. They have every beach toy, board, kayak you would ever need. The views are spectacular. But more importantly, the owners are lovely. Very prompt, extremely kind and my deposit was returned promptly. My month went way too fast!

A Great Family Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful spot on a quiet street and the ocean. We had three generations aged from 17 months to 70 and there was space and activities for everyone. The children loved the beach while their grandfather enjoyed retreating to the den and immersing himself in the books.

Thank you Leah and Dennis for sharing your beautiful home.

Wonderful Beach Week!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a vacation home that would fit my family visiting from Australia, (6 kids and 8 adults) , preferably on the beach in Malibu. Dennis and Leah's home was everything we needed and more. The location is excellent. A beautiful beachfront property and on a quiet street. The house was perfect for our size. The kids had space to run around and the adults had space to get some peace and quiet. The house is very well set up with everything you would need for a large group. We had several special dinners at the house and were happy to find all the cooking gear we needed, wine glasses, dining sets, even kids plates and cups. We spent most evenings on the deck looking over the ocean and most days on the beach. From beds, sheets and blankets to dining, internet, tv and laundry - the house has everything you will need.

Dennis and Leah were lovely to work with. I had a couple of questions about beach lights and TV when we first arrived, Dennis and Leah were very communicative and answered my questions immediately. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a special group getaway and I hope to return to the house sometime soon.

Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, Comfortable atmosphere, and everything we needed to have a relaxing stay on the beach. Dennis checked us in and showed us everything we needed to know about the house. He was very easy to get in touch with before and after our stay, and helped us have a great weekend. The house was very clean, and the location was ideal as it is easy to get to from Santa Monica and the valley, but set off enough from the highway that there is no car noise to distract from the beautiful surroundings - only the sound of the ocean to put you to sleep :) It is also worth mentioning as other reviewers have that this house has ample parking which is a huge plus in Malibu. In conclusion this place is magical and I'm so happy I had a chance to visit.

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.
