Beach: We are on a wet beach, which means that at high tide there is usually no beach in front of the house. The tides change about every 6 hours (high to low) and the times change about 30-60 minutes everyday. 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 Malibu

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.

                                                              • 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.

                                                                The A frame get away was a perfect fit for us to get away. Weather we were surfing, mountain biking or just hanging on the almost private beach, it was all very relaxing. The owner Morrie was very gracious about tips, information about the area and very quick and responsive to our questions. The back deck was very nice even on cooler windy days due to being protected from elements by glass railing. We are looking forward to returning and spending more time at this great get away.

                                                                Amazing place to get away from it all!

                                                                I had been here once before in the spring of 2013 and loved it. Came back for a quick two-night writing retreat. If you stop at the Vintage Foods on your way, they have a lot great prepared foods. No need to cook! You can always get in the car and drive down to the busier part of the PCH -- but it's so nice and quiet when you're a little further north. FYI if you want a little exercise... 15 minutes away, up Yerba Buena is one of Modern Hikers Best Hikes in LA. Six mile loop with a pretty substantial hill.

                                                                Perfect Beach Getaway!

                                                                Kirsten D.-

                                                                Firstly, the owner was so accommodating! We booked the rental at the last minute to get out of the Thomas Fire area and Morrie took time away from his vacation to get us in there right away. This house is such a cute "A"frame with updated finishes. The beach access was fantastic! My husband, son and I played in the water for 2 hours. I would recommend this little getaway to everyone!

                                                                Quaint Beach Cottage

                                                                Margaret E.

                                                                We could not have enjoyed our stay more! The house is so cute and beautifully updated with modern fixtures. It was perfect for our little family of 4 (with the kids sleeping on the pull out couch). Down two short staircases is the beach. Morrie provided all sorts of beach gear, chairs, paddle board, boogie boards, towels and more. We also had access to the washer and dryer which was key for us since we drove from Colorado. We cooked dinner every night in the cute little kitchen and enjoyed the wood burning fire place! The house is in driving proximity to grocery stores, restaurants and the pier (which I definitely recommend checking out!). Morrie was super responsive when booking and about checking in and out instructions and just making sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable.

                                                                The only negative to the house was the proximity to the highway. The nighttime highway noise was pretty intense so we couldn't sleep with the windows open and a white noise app was essential.

                                                                I hope we will find an excuse to come back!!!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                So glad you had a nice time. It is worth noting that most Malibu rentals are actually located on the Highway.

                                                                Our house is down a semi private driveway and off the highway.

                                                                We do get the noise, however, it is less.

                                                                Perfect place to kick back in Malibu!

                                                                We have had a lovely experience at Moorie's A-frame beach house. The beach itself is very private and was perfect for our dog. We enjoyed coffee on the deck in the morning and red wine watching the incredible sunsets. The kitchen had everything we needed and the house was clean and well decorated in a minimialist beach chic theme. We were far enough away from downtown Malibu to feel relaxed but close enough to get to the store and go out to dinner. We will be back for sure! Thank you Morrie!

                                                                Simply Amazing!!!!!!

                                                                We could not have dreamt of a better stay, the house is simply stunning with so much character and history. The views from the deck and bedroom are breathtaking. My partner and I slept in the loft with the bed, while his mother slept on the pull out sofa - we never felt cramped as the open plan layout and high ceilings makes the entire place feel very grand & spacious.

                                                                This home has a very special place in our hearts, during our stay my partner asked me to marry him on the headland - which is a 5 min walk from the home. It has an amazing ocean view and this part of Malibu is very private so the entire experience was very intimate. Our family celebrated with us on the private beach in front of the home - which was also empty and it was probably the greatest day of our lives!

                                                                We cannot thank Morrie and his lovely wife Rachel enough for being amazing hosts, we are already looking forward to our next stay to re-live it all again!
