The Space

Perfect studio apartment with ocean views from the window and front door- literally steps across the street from the world famous Malibu Surfrider Beach.

This 1 room apartment offers one parking space in gated outdoor lot, so you don't have to deal with beach parking, or paying every day. Although the location is so good, you most likely won't drive much while you are here.

The space is a small 1 room studio. It is clean, cute, and very comfortable. The bed size is a Full. The carpet is older and there are tears in it, but as you can read in the reviews, the room is clean. There is a kitchenette with a small refrigerator and a microwave, and a hot plate, but no stove. There are no additional rooms, just what is in the photos.

Less than 10 minutes walking gets you anywhere you could want or need to go in Malibu.

Start your day off with a walk across the street to the end of the Malibu Pier, or walk to the Malibu Surf Shack, 2 min away, and rent a kayak or surfboard and enjoy a day on the water.

When you feel hungry, take a stroll down on the Pacific Coast Highway bridge over Malibu Creek to the Cross Creek and Lumberyard shopping centers, where you can grab a quick bite at Malibu Kitchen or John's Garden, or sit down at Cafe Habana for some cuban inspired cuisine.

Check out the shops, grab a coffee and homemade pastry from Malibu Kitchen, or see a movie at the theater, and walk back to hang at the beach or relax in bed with a good book.

The location is perfect at night, as it is only a 15 minute drive to Santa Monica, and about 20 to get to Venice. If you do not have a car, the bus stop is just 100 feet from the building- although I never hear the bus.

Or, stay local and go back to Cross Creek for Greek dining at Taverna Tony's where every night has live music.

If you have questions about what to do in Malibu, Santa Monica, or Venice, whether it is hiking, yoga, and relaxing, or sightseeing and LA nightlife you are looking for, I would absolutely love to help make your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible.

Guest Access

There is a shared laundry unit at the opposite end of the building from my apartment, near the stairs. You will need the key that you get when you check in. It is 4 quarters for the wash, and 5 quarters for the dryer.

  • Location, location, location. Studio is located next to the Malibu pier and crosswalk and a very short 3 minute drive to Pepperdine University. Room is perfect for one (or two) and is clean and tidy. The bed was comfy too. Allison is easy going and let me check in early on the day arrived. Great little beach place at a great value in Malibu.

  • Our stay at Allison's place was perfect. It is a small funky room that appears to be in what was at one time a motel. The bed was super comfortable and the room was clean and cozy. There was no TV in the room, but if you are right across from the Malibu pier and cove and you are watching TV, you shouldn't be there. We were literally walking distance from a Jack in the Box (though we didn't go there except for morning coffee!) Casa Escobar (Very reasonably priced Mexican fare) V's, Malibu newest and in my mind tastiest high end eating establishment, and Malibu Farms on the pier. We walked right across the street to the beach, no parking hassles.
    Keep in mind we have a higher end weekend place we go to in Malibu about once a month eight miles South. We were looking for a longer experience this time, and we were delighted, with the host, the room, the neighborhood, and the price. We will be back!

  • Spent two great nights in Malibu! Loved Allison's place, was just what we needed. Clean and beautiful decor, just as described! Easy walk to cafes, restaurants, the beach and the country mart. Great spot! Thank you for a lovely weekend!

  • Staying in Allison's place was amazing. The location was perfect and the place is very nice. Allison was incredibly helpful. At the very last minute my initial booking was cancelled and I could stay at Allison's place with just 2 hours notice in advance. It is just across the street from the beach so going for a nice run early in the morning was absolutely perfect.
    Would definitely recommend staying there.

  • Great place, clean and comfy. Allison was a great host, super responsive and gave us great recommendations for nearby food. Place is steps from the beach, right across the Pacific Coast Highway. There is a bit of traffic noise if you leave the windows open at night, but totally worth the great location.

  • Allison's Malibu place is a perfect location to explore Malibu and its surroundings and Allison was great to deal with! Surfers beach is just a few steps away and hiking trails in the Santa Monica Mountains are only a few minutes away by car. Don´t miss out on the Malibu Farm café on the pier, a true little gem with great food and drinks!
