Almost always during low tide , there is beach/sand in front of the house.

About Morrie Zagha

We are a family that treasures quality time together with our friends.

Morrie Zagha purchased this house in 2004

Why Morrie Zagha chose Los Angeles County

We fell in love with the beach, at the end of Malibu. Close to Los Angeles, yet when you are relaxing on the deck gazing at the sea, you feel miles away from everything. A dream location with breath taking views. It starts from the moment you enter your Malibu getaway, from early morning sunrise, to spectacular sunsets and magical moon beams across the ocean floor at night.

What makes this house unique

We love to cook and always have wonderful meals on our deck. We enjoy having our good friends and family visit and we celebrate each lovely day of beach activities & memorable evenings together.

Your own private beach in Malibu!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I, plus 2 dogs had a wonderful time! Perfect location to relax on the sun deck and stroll on the beach. We saw dolphins too! The home is well stocked with everything you could need. The beach is your backyard and private but close enough to to a public access so you can watch the locals surfing! Wonderful time and owner, Morrie, is very helpful and attentive-Thank you!

This was the perfect place to spend a romantic Valentines Day weekend. This place has everything. Parking (check) Steps from the Beach (check) Beautiful View (check) the list goes on. The kitchen is amazing. We cook a lot and they have everything you need, plus A DISHWASHER. The fridge is a bit small, but it worked for this 5 day trip. Morrie was super helpful before we even checked in. Everything was thought out. Check in was seamless. He was even able to let us extend our trip at the last minute. If you are looking to get away from everything, this is the place. It gets a little hot when the sun comes into the A Frame, but their is a nice airflow with the windows and the ceiling fan. We've rented a ton of places in Malibu and this place was perfect. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. When it does get hot, we suggest that the skylight roof window get opened as well as the front door. That usually will cool everything down fairly well. Hope to see you back. Morrie

We loved our stay at the Malibu A Frame!! 5 stars.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this private beach location. It was really chic and represented well from the images online as well as it own You Tube video.

It was great for our family of four and our Standard Poodle. It was a great find for the winter holiday break (many locations were not available as units were being used for extended family over the holidays)

The communication with the owners was seamless and easy--they were flexible with our date requests as well as contact numbers we never needed to use.

The home had good security for our family (it's off PCH a busy road) it had a locking garden gate as well as a gate that locked to the beach.

All the finishes were very up to date and stylish in grey and white. The kitchen was very workable and appreciated that all the basics for cooking (spices and oils etc) were there.

The location at the beach is phenomenal ! Hearing the waves at night and seeing them with the spotlight on were terrific. We made fires nightly which was easy. Every thing was well stocked and clean on arrival.

We would love to go back. I would recommend the place for no more than four guests. It is off busy PCH so plan on quick exits and drives in.

There is a terrific new shopping center a few miles north call Trancos Country Mart that is great for grocery and Starbucks.

Know that this location is at the North end of Malibu.

Our many photos taken from this home tell our story of how terrific it was for us.

Awesome A Frame

  • 5 of 5

This Awesome A-Frame beach house is the perfect location to take advantage of relaxing in the Malibu area. The house itself is immaculate and exceeded my expectations. The well equipped kitchen is a huge plus for me, it is wonderful preparing foods with a view that would knock your socks off. My favorite time of day is sunset. We always make sure we are home every day to catch the beautiful sunset off the private deck. I am very happy that I found this property. The owners provide substantial information regarding local attractions, restaurants, shopping and my favorite, the outdoor food market. The owners are very communicative and create a very "home" feeling in addition to the fact that they are great to deal with. I highly recommend this property for adults who want to escape the "rat race" of their life/jobs/responsibilities because the serenity of the ocean and the occasional sounds of marine life (mornings) will sooth the "beast" in anyone. This property is also THE most romantic place you can imagine to celebrate that special birthday, anniversary or just relaxing with the love of your life.

Owner's Response: Thank you John for mentioning that the house is ROMANTIC. We feel the very same way, however, very few guests mention it. It is something about the feeling one has when inside. Must have a lot to do with the A Frame with it's soaring ceilings and how that plays against the blue ocean and the flocks of pelicans that fly by in formation.You start to forget all your worries and just relax and listen to the music of the ocean.

California at its best

We scheduled our visit a year ago but had to cancel. Morrie worked ,all year,with us to find a new time that fit our schedule . We are so happy we made it. Quiet and private .The sound of the waves is therapeutic . The Pacific looking out over the loft the mountains out the bedroom windows. You can see the Channel Islands right from the deck. County Line and Leo Carrillo beaches for surfing or just walking the beach. A fun drive to anywhere . Great Place. We will be back. Great owners . Thank You Morrie we felt right at home.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you finally made it out here and enjoyed your stay. Since you were here for a week you were able to make many side trips and see so much of California while using our house as your base. We hope the rest of your trip was good.

This is a unique beach house because it is an 'A-Frame' with 18 foot ceilings. It is all glass in the front on the ocean side. There are 2 houses on the beach here. The rental is the one behind the first one and sits up higher above the front one.You have a great ocean view from you balcony as well as from inside the house. You do see the roof line of the front house from your (the rental) house. You can see the layout of the houses from the 2 video links. It feels like a much bigger house than it is due to it's unique architecture. You have ocean views from the entire house. There is nothing like this on the beach in Malibu. The beach is essentially a private beach and when you are on it feels as though you are on a island. You usually can see one or two of the Channel Islands and sometimes Catalina Island.
