Luxurious oceanfront oasis with a laid-back, serene vibe
Malibu is the premier beachside retreat in Southern California. Sought after by many celebrities as a tranquil place to get away from it all, this city features awe-inspiring views, including those found along the Pacific Coast Highway. Locals can spend their days surfing, sunbathing, and relaxing — this oceanfront escape is easy to fall in love with.
In the city, you’ll discover seven core neighborhoods: Malibu Colony, Carbon Beach, Malibu Cove Colony, Broad Beach, Big Rock Mesa, Point Dume, and Malibu Park. Each has its own admirable characteristics and personality. Nearly all of the area’s communities offer residents an unparalleled level of privacy and seclusion, especially Malibu Colony, Malibu Cove Colony, and Point Dume.
All of the homes in Malibu are breathtaking, offering sweeping views of the glittering Pacific Ocean that must be seen to be believed! Prospective buyers will find everything from opulent oceanside estates to grandiose mansions. The median list price of homes in this area sits at approximately $3,450,000, but it’s worth keeping in mind that many homes exceed this price point, especially those located directly on the ocean.
Malibu has long been considered a highly desirable city that has perfected the art of relaxation. Residents have long been able to find tranquility and peace in Malibu. Numerous locales are so private that it is almost impossible to be disturbed.
This idyllic area is perfect for those who want to live a laid-back lifestyle whenever possible. Anyone looking to live in a stunning oasis tucked away from city life will adore relocating to Malibu, as will anyone who enjoys spending time sunbathing or surfing at beautiful Southern California beaches.
Along the coast, locals enjoy a myriad of highly-rated restaurants. They also have the pleasure of living near convenient shopping.
You’ll find plenty of great shops just off the Pacific Coast Highway along Cross Creek Road. Grab groceries at Whole Foods or stop by the popular Malibu Country Mart, a large, outdoor boutique mall that is beloved by locals. Here, you’ll find fashionable favorites like Fred Segal, Brandy Melville, and Rubin & Chapelle. You can also pick up a coffee at Starbucks, take a class at 5 Point Yoga or Pure Barre, and indulge in a skincare treatment at Ambiance Skin & Body.
Malibu is also home to a host of incredible and award-winning restaurants. There’s no place better than Malibu Seafood for fresh fish (best enjoyed from the sunny patio), and you’ll love the Mexican food and margaritas at Cliffdiver. There are plenty of restaurants, like Malibu Farm, that serve delicious farm-to-table cuisine. Enjoy a delicious breakfast at Ollo as you sip your coffee under the morning sunshine, and end your night with a cocktail at the trendy and surfer-themed Duke’s Malibu.
Leisure time revolves around the beach in Malibu. When you have miles of serene beachfront just steps from home, there’s no need to travel elsewhere on your days off.
Two of Malibu’s most loved beaches are Zuma Beach and Point Dume State Beach. Each offers a completely different experience yet shares breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Zuma Beach is a surfer’s paradise. Every day of the week, you can watch surfers trying to catch the perfect wave. At Point Dume State Beach, you’ll see rocky formations and a much more rugged stretch of coastline.
Another not-to-miss in Malibu is the Malibu Pier. Open since 1905, this historical spot offers visitors an excellent selection of shopping, dining, and photo ops. A short drive away, the Adamson House Museum is available to tour. Once an oceanfront residence in the 1920s, this remarkable home, and its lush gardens are open for visitors.
