Perks for the Parents

This quintessential Malibu Colony Cottage, steps away from a private beach, has plenty to entertain kids, from a ping pong table to paddle boards and surfboards, and has delightful design and a sunny backyard. Set up with a guest cottage and main house, it works well for families traveling with a nanny or grandparents, offering privacy while being on the same property. The main house has a master bedroom and children’s bedroom with bunk beds. Extra perks for parents include Apple TV, xBox and an optional housekeeper twice a week. Also bookable for a fee, guests can have a tennis instructor, surf or SUP instructor for kids and adults, and a yoga instructor, masseuse and trainer available to come to the house. The property is walking distance to the Sunday Malibu farmer's market.

Why Kids Love it

An easy walk to the beach - just across the street - and with plenty of space in the enclosed front and back yards to play, this house is great fun for kids. The bikes, ping pong table and variety of beach accessories make this a great getaway for a family. There is also a basketball hoop in front of the garage. Bikes for adults and kids are also available for use. Note there are limited provisions for young children; baby equipment rental services may be able to provide extras. The property is walking distance (easy with a stroller) to some of the most famous restaurants and attractions in Malibu: Taverna Tony’s, Tra Di Noi, Mr. Chow’s, Malibu Yogurt, Cafe Habana, Soul Cycle and Yoga.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week. The property is set over 1 floor with no need for stair gates. Bedrooms have access to the enclosed garden. The neighborhood is gated, offering security and privacy. The enclosed community and quick beach access makes it great for families, especially with younger children. The local beach is great for kids who like to surf or boogie board; it is a Pacific Beach, not ideal for very young children, and has no lifeguard. Car rental is recommended for this location.

About the Location

The house is located in a private beach community with access to a secluded Malibu beach. Downtown Malibu is a 5-minute walk from the house, with tons of restaurants, shops, gyms and children's parks to explore. The house is a 15-minute walk from the Malibu Pier and a 5-minute drive from Nobu and Soho House Malibu. Downtown Los Angeles is 40-50 minutes away by car, and LAX is 35 minutes’ drive away.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom property has 2 buildings, a main house and a guest cottage with a further bedroom. The main house has a bedroom with kingsize bed, a second bedroom with queensize bed and a children’s bedroom with bunk bed. It also includes an open plan family kitchen, 2 bathrooms with shower and tubs, and living spaces indoor and out. The guest cottage has 1 bedroom with a queensize bed and 1 bathroom and sleeps up to 2. The home is surrounded by landscaped grounds with an outdoor wood-burning fireplace, built-in BBQ, spa, eating and dining areas that are ideal for entertaining, steps away from a deeded beach access lot.

Style Notes

Beach chic. The house is bright and airy, with clean, beachy furniture that is both stylish and comfortable. The outdoor fireplace is right next to large table, perfect for entertaining guests in the sunshine, and the open plan kitchen also allows you to cook while hanging with family and friends. Bedrooms are cheerful and have access to the garden, making playing indoor and out easy. The main living space has dramatic lighting, a large modern dining set and a fiddle leaf fig tree. We love the easy living spaces, the comfortable sky blue sofa, and the wonderful outdoor space for relaxing together as a family after a day at the beach.

I am an independent film producer with a wife and two daughters. I love eating food (especially dumplings) and exploring new cities. Looking forward to welcoming families into our home!

Perfect house for a family vacation! Clean, comfortable, fully stocked with everything you need. Location was convenient and safe. Very easy access to beach. Host was responsive and wonderful to work with. Highly recommend!

Malibu, Los Angeles

Beaches, canyons and film sets

Malibu has starred in so many films, TV shows and music videos that it needs its own Equity card. Get ready to snap the kids playing on the beach from Planet of the Apes - or if they’re tweens, the spot where One Direction shot a video. The beaches here are wonderful and you’re sure to find a quiet spot somewhere; don’t miss hiking the canyons (there are even stroller-friendly walks), buying kitsch souvenirs on Malibu Pier and watching surfers ride big waves.
