Little, mid century, ranch style, private guest house, on Point Dume peninsula. We are surrounded by Big & Little Dume coves, Westward & Zuma Beaches. Malibu is 27 mi. long and 2 mi. wide.
Cottage has one bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, living room,w/ large tv and wifi. Picture window looks back to mountains, & down to our lovely tennis court. Bring your own or borrow rackets to play.
We are 3 blocks to beach in each direction as seen on map.
A lovely private tennis-and-beach getaway with lots of open land, set in Maibu's beloved Point Dume neighborhood. The clean, detached space has a homey feel, smart swing-out windows for fresh Malibu sea air, and the rooms have wi-fi, a large desk area, (great for writers), entertainment system, breakfast table,and a full kitchen.We have cultural touches inside the guest-house like the Beatles Anthology, complete cartoons of The New Yorker, a "Far Side" comics collection, and new and vintage books. Little Dume beach is a gem for surfers and general beachgoers alike, and ocean-lovers are also close to Zuma, El Matadar, County Line, etc. Also recommend exploring the back end of Mulholland highway, a serenely pastoral region that leads to wineries and displays the old, untouched Malibu, just like the tide pools and sea caves at Leo Carillo beach, or some of the secret hiking paths.
The property is near (and walkable to) quite a bit, including Sunlife Organics for great juices and smoothies as well as Cafecito Organico, a top fair-trade coffee roaster, and Duck Dive.Also many new places to eat.
Many beach locations from classic and not so classic movies are all around for the film buff. NYTimes article '36 hrs in the 'bu' is our area. One block away, grocery, coffee shop, restaurants and new bookstore. Walk the beach,bike, or hike the mountain or have a game of tennis.
Our area is an eclectic,super safe, residential area, full of nature loving, the sports minded and families, as well as our many celebrities.

I had a great experience at Patricia and Jeff's cottage. It is amazing, exactly as described and in one the best locations in Malibu. Its close to great organic cafes, a supermarket and a gastropub. They are lovely, welcoming and extremely helpful....truly wonderful hosts I highly recommend it!
Patricia's place is a cozy gem in my favorite neighborhood in Malibu. Its close enough to walk into town, a major plus and of course they key to the Riviera III beach is simply unrivaled!
Patricia takes extra care to make sure her guests are comfortable with snacks in the fridge and home baked cookies if you like. Her family is welcoming and made me feel like I belonged there.
great experience! I'll return for sure!
thanks Patricia for welcoming my dogs boys... they were so happy there!!
Patricia was a wonderful host. She greeted us with warm cookies and a tour of the neighborhood, along with great recommendations for restaurants. She was also readily available if we needed her leading up to and during the trip to answer questions and ask how we were doing. The cottage was clean and cozy and completely comfortable, and had a large TV for movie watching as well as a wealth of good coffee table reading about the area. We enjoyed morning walks and runs around Point Dume park to view dolphins, sea lions, and whales and afternoons at the beach - with beach chairs, towels, etc. provided by Patricia. We ended up on Westward beach more than the private beach - both were lovely settings and a roughly equal walk from the house. For those that would rather drive, Westward also has parking, but we really loved the walk through the neighborhood and down the bluff to the beach. There is also hiking nearby in the mountains. One evening, we drove further along the Malibu coast only to realize that Point Dume is the most beautiful setting of all (and especially lovely as it is offset from the Pacific Coast Hwy). It really is a special place, and we were sad to leave so soon!
Patricia and Jeff have a great guest house in a great part of Malibu. The guest house is beautiful, quiet, easily accessible, well stocked and close to beach, restaurants and grocery store. They were very helpful and flexible with my changing travel plans. Would definitely be my choice for any future visits.
Just wonderful. Comes with coveted private key to beach access between Paradise Cove and Point Dume. Patricia graciously gave a tour of the area (including how to acesss the private beach). She also greeted us with warm cookies and remained available for questions if needed.
Cute place, nice host, great access to the beach, and you can hear the ocean from the guest house. Couldn't have been better.
