Description

Please read this listing in it's entirety prior to booking. This is a very unique home - it has the potential to be the highlight of your trip to Los Angeles. You will be able to watch the sunrise from your bedroom and there is a good chance you'll see a dolphin or a seal while you're eating breakfast on the beach. The ocean waves will lull you to sleep at night and you'll be able to see the shimmering lights of Los Angeles reflect off the ocean from your patio. The peaceful tranquility of a private beach is a short walk away - the hustle and bustle of Santa Monica is a quick 15 minute drive. That being said, our home is not for everyone. We have tried our best to spell out all the idiosyncrasies in our home so that there are no surprises. Managing expectations is very important - please read this entire listing so you have a very clear idea of us, our home, and our expectations for you. Please be very clear about the total number of guests when booking this home. Anybody that will be entering our home is considered a guest, regardless of if they stay overnight. If you are planning to have additional guests or a gathering of any sort, please let us know in advance. We have a great relationship with our neighbors and would like to set expectations with them so they are not disturbed. Please note, any unauthorized guests or gatherings will result in your reservation being terminated without refund. Please do not let this happen to you. We want you to enjoy our home and conversely, we want to enjoy sharing our home with you. Our neighbors are very dear friends of ours and we are very discerning about the groups that we allow to rent. Now that that's been cleared up, please allow me to give you a virtual tour of our home. Please note - I am not a salesman or a real estate agent. I will be as objective as possible when describing the home. My goal is to make sure you have a clear understanding of the property prior to booking so that you can enjoy everything Malibu has to offer! The home is built on stilts overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Assuming we accept your reservation, we will give you a detailed set of entry instructions complete with a unique code for you to access a lockbox. Once you arrive to the property, you will enter through the front patio gate directly off Pacific Coast Highway. Once you enter the gate you will be in our enclosed private courtyard. From this court yard, you will be able to get to our front door. This offers our guests an additional level of privacy and separation from the hustle and bustle of the highway. You will also be able to access the ocean from the front patio. Walking through our front door, you will be in our living room. The living room is roughly 400 sq feet and has multiple sofas, six person dining, and a mounted TV with an Apple TV hooked up. There is enough for ten people to watch TV while the waves crash in the background. The dining area is adjacent to the living area and has a huge dining table that can seat between 6 to 8 people. The dining area is directly off the ocean and provides a dramatic eating experience for with friends and family. There are multiple sofas and lounge chairs on the patio for your enjoyment as well. The first bedroom is located to the left of the front door. It has a huge king sized bed with tons of books for you to enjoy while you're visiting Malibu. The first bathroom is adjacent to this bedroom and has a spa jet tub with some beautiful tile work. The second bedroom is down the hall from the living room/kitchen area. This bedroom is huge! We were able to fit two queen beds to allow for maximum sleeping space. If you have additional guests or children, let us know in advance and we can arrange to provide air mattresses so that everyone is comfortable. The back balcony is the most magical aspect of our home. It is directly off the ocean and provides a gorgeous backdrop for time spent with family, friends, or colleagues. There is an outdoor dining table and a few chairs to lounge on. On the courtyard patio where you entered the house, there is a BBQ grill that we have left for guests to use. Keep in mind, although there is a tank, we do not provide propane for the grill. There is a gas station a short drive away that refills propane for a nominal fee. If there is propane in the tank during your stay, we ask that you pay it forward so the next guest can enjoy the same experience as you! The ability to grill by the Pacific Ocean is an experience that most people will never have in their lifetime - we are excited to share it with you! In summary, our home is filled with charm and will be the dream home for the right group of guests. There is a king sized bed, two queen beds, two full baths, oceanfront dining, and is directly off the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, California. It is one of the most homes available for rent, as it is on stilts, perched high above the water. A brief disclaimer: If you are looking for a 5 star hotel or a very modern home, this would not be a good fit for you. We prefer to host our home to guests that are tech savvy and independent. If you are used to calling the hotel front desk while abroad, our home might not be a good fit. Our home is professionally cleaned, all linens professionally laundered and all surfaces sanitized before and after each guest. That being said, the home is directly on the beach so surface rust, sand, and water stains are to be expected. This does not affect the cleanliness of the property, it simply comes with the territory of living on the beach. If you are the type of traveler that is uncomfortable with rust or water stains, this might not be the best home for you. If you are an independent beach enthusiast that is looking for the ultimate gateway to Malibu, we are excited to welcome you to our home! We provide towels, sheets, and pillows, so you do not need to bring these things with you. We do NOT provide shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, body wash, face wash, wash clothes, beach towels, sand toys, cable television, (we have netflix attached to our TV), or laundry soap. If these things are important to you, please bring them when visiting our home. We want you to be comfortable when staying, so if you have any additional questions, please ask! Travel Times: Our home is centrally located - most major LA landmarks can be accessed with ease. Please keep the traffic schedule in mind when traveling and you will be able to maximize your enjoyment of the city and minimize your time on the road. Traveling between the hours of 7am to 9am and 4:30pm and 6:30pm is not recommended as this is rush hour. Below are some major landmarks and the corresponding travel time.

Of course, we love sharing our home with guests and know you will too! We simply ask that you include all DAYTIME and overnight guests on your reservation guest count so we have an accurate occupancy permit with the city of Malibu. Is there access to the beach? -Yes! We are directly on the sand. There is nothing obstructing our balcony from the Pacific Ocean. You can walk down the patio steps and jump right into the ocean. The size of the beach depends on the tide. If the tide is high, there might not be much beach to enjoy. A tide schedule can be found online for the dates of your stay! What happens if I run out of Toilet Paper/Propane/Food/Candy? -You're in luck! There is an ARCO gas station within driving distance of our home that has all the supplies you might need. We provide the starters to get you through the first few days of your trip but you should definitely plan on restocking
