Even in high tide, you can usually find some sand a few houses up the beach or a short stroll to County Line Beach next door. Almost always during low tide , there is beach/sand in front of the house.

Location: Note that we are just past the Ventura County line.

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.

Awesome Malibu Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Morrie's Malibu house was simply amazing. Morrie provided all the information we needed to get there safely and was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had.

The house is simply amazing. It was in a great location that was quiet and relaxing but close enough to stores and restaurants if you needed to get out. But why would you ever want to leave this place? We spent days just laying around on the deck chairs staring at the waves or walking along the beach that we have private access to. The house was clean and equipped with everything that we needed from linens, wifi, cable TV and cooking supplies. The layout was perfect to get ocean views from wherever you are and even though it was only two of us, it could have comfortably fit 4 people.

Morrie's A frame house will definitely be our go to spot in Malibu now.

Top Notch Getaway From Reservation to Check Out

  • 5 of 5

I feel like there's not much I can say in this review that hasn't already been said, but I have to shower this rental experience with praise because it was really THAT GOOD! I've been eyeballing this property for about 10 months now, but the boyfriend was skeptical because of the cost, but even he admitted when we got there that it was worth every penny. The flood of natural light combined with the modern beachy decor set the relaxing tone for the weekend, and the sound of the waves crashing was the perfect soundtrack. Morrie was super responsible with questions I had before the stay, and provided tons of info for us not just about checking in and getting settled, but also things to do and ways to make our stay even better. The house was so thoughtfully decorated and stocked with everything we could possibly need and then some. Even my dog was able to make herself feel right at home! It was the absolute perfect getaway for a busy couple who works long weeks and wanted to take a break from reality for awhile. Thank you Morrie and we cannot wait to come back!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I spent 5 nights here in late August and had perfect weather, the perfect getaway really. Morrie was fantastic to work with and was helpful during the booking process, and during our stay.

The house itself is very well represented in the pictures, the beach is as beautiful as it looks. Everything was very clean and tidy and there is space to park as well which is a nice bonus.

We hope to go back someday and have also recommended friends and colleagues check it out!

Owner's Response: So glad you guys had a great time and were also able to take in some of the sites that were only a few minutes drive. You should come more often to escape the cold up in Canada.

this house is my happy place.

  • 5 of 5

I am a writer and I try to stay here at least once a year. It's beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you'd need for a vacation at the beach. It's located on a peaceful, gorgeous, isolated beach. The sunsets are amazing and so is waking up, looking out the windows and seeing the ocean all around you.

I have been there with friends, for romantic getaways and on solo trips to write and they've all been awesome. I cannot recommend this place or the owners more highly.

Malibu Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was great to stay in this light filled , cute , tasteful and organized home with a deck and view of the water. The kitchen was lovely and all was very comfortable. It was great to hang out there with my two daughters and we had fun walking to the beach and getting a bite at Neptunes across the street which is quite a fun scene.We had a great few days there!

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.
