About This Listing
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 cannot say enough wonderful things about Patricia and her beautiful guest home. We were welcomed with fresh fruit and homemade cookies, then treated to a tour of the area that made Malibu come alive! Patricia is a fascinating person who knows the movie/television business, and she told us great stories and gave excellent recommendations for things to do, restaurants, etc. The private beach is spectacular, and an easy walk from the house. The home is clean and we slept each night in a place full of fresh ocean air. We hope to return again soon to this little oasis!
We had a wonderful time. Patricia's hospitality was excellent, she is very nice and helpful. She greeted us with chocolate chips cookies and fruit, even gave us a tour of Malibu. She is located in a very quiet area with clear night sky to see the stars, something you don't get in LA. Definitely felt more like being on an island than a city. The guest house was very clean and had a cozy home feel. She provided anything you would need, even a beach umbrella and chairs. Her dog is very sweet and we had no concern having our tiny pups play him. This was out first Airbnb and we loved it. We definitely want to come back and I'd recommend staying at Patricia's to anyone. She is an awesome host!
I always feel welcome at Patricia's. The chocolate cookies are the best! I
This was my second time staying with Patricia and Jeff and it was even better the second time. They are the most hospitable and accessible hosts. I have fallen in love with Point Dume, it's my favorite place in Malibu and their house is perfectly located. I have already booked my third trip this summer!
A gem. A tennis court. A key.
Staying out on Point Dume we kept pinching ourselves… we felt so lucky to be here.
The key allowed us to pass through private gates; which led us down a beautiful path of flowers, past a backyard vineyard; across a foot bridge, which opened onto the sea.
Iconic, empty, unspoiled; these private Malibu beach front entrances are yours while you stay at Patricia and Jeff’s air bnb.
Fresh flowers, berries and cookies greeted us upon our arrival and as soon as we got settled, Jeff gave us a quick tour in his SUV. We drove past a few celebrity homes and at the end of Greyfox and Cliffside, he showed us these magical private gates.
In our stay, we spent wonderful hours walking in Point Dume.
Reminiscent of the dramatic landscape of Big Sur; the trek through the winding sandy paths of the California State Park afforded us breathtaking coastal views.
We walked along the Malibu beaches to Paradise Cove for breakfast and to the Sunset for happy hour.
My husband was thrilled to play tennis on his “own court;" with Jeff and with a great tennis pro he recommended and against the ball machine.
We enjoyed the quiet at night and the restorative seclusion and beauty of Malibu.
At the end of day, it was great to return to our cozy kitchen and comfy bed; fresh towels and wide screen TV.
There is a market, coffee shop, post office and bookstore a short walk away.
Jeff from Montana and Patricia from Mississippi gave us a warm welcome and enough personal space to have a real getaway.
There are so many reasons we would love to visit again…
As usual I loved being here. For me this is the perfect location. This time I dealt with Jeff who is a real nice guy. Everything is always clean and ready.
