Our home

Cute cozy beach cottage, views of Malibu from the front yard, 5 minute walk to the beach, or King Harbor for sailing/boating/fishing. 15 minute drive from the LA freeway system to explore Los Angeles & Southern California. One bedroom with queen size bed, and a comfy couch, sleeps 3. Great getaway for a couple. Enjoy the climate of Southern California, sunny and warm all year round. Nice views of Malibu and the Pacific Ocean from the front yard. Nice garden for cooking out, includes grill, charcoal, lighter fluid. I'll include a guest account on my computer with high speed internet access. Kitchen is small but gas oven and range, new fridge, dishwasher. Spacious bathroom, satellite TV. Garden of California native plants (some turn brown in the dry summer season). Pets are welcome, doggie door to the back yard, fences, gates. Small cottage, 500 sq feet, best for a couple, but could sleep a third on the couch, and another one or two on the library floor (air mattress provided).
