This charming 1 bedroom/1bath guest apartment boasts your own private ocean-view patio, private entrance, full kitchen, washer/dryer, fully-tiled floors and high-quality furnishings. Located on a quiet street just 400 yards from the ocean as the crow flies and a two-minute drive, the enchanting blue Pacific fills the expansive window views from every room in the apartment. In fact, you’ll never get tired of gazing over the beguiling and ever-changing ocean from the queen-sized bed. From our elevation of 380 feet on a clear day, you can see several Channel Islands including Catalina, and if you’re lucky, you might even spy a whale and her calf on their way north from Mexico.
Within minutes of Malibu’s gorgeous beaches including world-famous Zuma Beach, Leo Carrillo Beach and Paradise Cove, and a plethora of hiking and mountain biking trails that join the 65-mile Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains, this apartment is also just a short drive from Pepperdine University, the Malibu Pier, wineries, the world-renowned Getty Villa antiquities museum, and notable Malibu shops and restaurants. The apartment is also an excellent starting point for road bicyclists riding the scenic Pacific Coast Highway route to Point Mugu. For touring by car, it is approximately 45 minutes from Santa Monica and 75 minutes from Santa Barbara. Many of Los Angeles’ museums, including the famed Getty Center and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), are within a 60-minute drive.
But we’re still far enough from the city lights to offer views of starry nights, the milky way, moonglow on the ocean, and even the occasional night-time rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Superb location in Malibu, up on the hill overlooking the ocean. Near to Broad Beach Road. Great central location for day trips into Santa Barbara, Montecito or LA. Hosts were super people, very nice and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay very much!
This was the first trip to Malibu for my wife and me, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The apartment was exactly what we were looking for...clean, away from the hustle and bustle (yet easily accessible), with friendly owners who had...More

Not ever having been to Malibu, we didn't really know what to expect. We drove to the condo in the dark and woke to a beautiful view of the Pacific with the added pleasure of lush landscaping all around. After driving a bit around Malibu...More

The apartment is the ground floor of a lovely Malibu home. When the owners (who live on the second floor) realized they didn’t need so much room for just the two of them, they decided to offer the lower level as a guest apartment. Both are avid tennis players, beach volleyball players and hikers, so they can point you in the right direction for a myriad of the wonderful outdoor activities Malibu has to offer.
