1. Private Malibu Getaway
Located right at the heart of Malibu Beach, the Private Malibu Getaway has everything you could need to enjoy your vacation and the short walk to the beach is hard to beat.
This spacious guest suite can sleep up to four guests comfortably thanks to the queen-size bed in the bedroom and the queen-size pull-out couch in the living room.
You will be impressed by how the hosts combine modern style with a beach theme and the blue accents really stand out amongst the white walls.
You can enjoy views of the beach right from your living room as you watch your favorite shows on the Smart TV and there are binoculars on the coffee table if you want a closer look.
The beach view continues on to the kitchen where you can admire the waves crashing as you cook a full spread dinner or brew yourself fresh coffee with the french press. There is even a dishwasher so you never have to clean during your stay!
Enjoy a full-size bathroom for a stress-free way to freshen up and take advantage of the washer and dryer so that your clothes are always clean.
And while the suite itself is enough to have you booking your trip right away, it’s the private patio that really steals the show.
The patio provides panoramic views of the ocean perfect for watching the sunset, a barbeque so that guests can enjoy an outdoor dining experience, and even a personal pool to cool off on hot days.
2. Bungalow Twelve
Nestled right on the famous Carbon Beach, you won’t find another rental as close to the ocean as Bungalow Twelve and that is just one of the features that makes it a truly amazing experience.
The chic interior follows a whitewashed design with light green and turquoise accents that really bring the entire place to life.
One step into the stylish living room will show you just how hard the hosts work to make this place both homey and beautiful.
From the white brick fireplace to the sound system, each feature of the living room makes you want to sit on the couch and never leave.
When you are not making use of the full-size kitchen, you can be stretched out on one of the two queen-size beds relaxing before another busy day on the beach.
The walk-in shower is a nice addition to the full bath and the dining room is a fan favorite thanks to its stellar views of the ocean.
But nothing really compares to the private patio overlooking the beach. From here you can step right down onto the sandy shores of Carbon Beach making it easy to come and go as you please.
3. Private Room in Villa
While this is considered to be a place where you share common spaces, the Private Room in Villa will make you feel like you have the entire place to yourself and the views of the mountains are spectacular.
For starters, this open floor plan can sleep up to six guests with three beds and a more than comfortable couch to choose from.
Plus, two of these beds are pressed right up against windows for breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains.
Even though you are sharing common spaces, you will have access to your own full bath with a deep bathtub perfect for soaking after a long day.
You will also have a small dining space if you don’t want to spend time in the communal dining room as well as a mini-fridge and a television to keep you entertained during late nights.
The bohemian style of this room is nothing short of charming and the built-in bookshelf wall really adds character to an already beautiful stay.
You will be amazed at how close you are to Malibu Beach as you feel like you have escaped to a mountain retreat with endless views in every window.
The communal kitchen, living room, dining room, and patio will make you feel like you are living the life of luxury and the mountain views only seem to get better and better.
4. Malibu Townhouse
Tucked away on the quiet street of Malibu Road, the Malibu Townhouse will be sure to amaze you and the views of the ocean alone are enough to warrant its expensive price tag.
Made up almost entirely of windows and mirrors, the views of the ocean are all around you and you could spend days taking it all in.
White brick climbs up the cathedral ceiling and wraps around the indoor fireplace to create a cozy place for guests to snuggle up on colder nights.
The wraparound counter is like something you would see in a gourmet kitchen and the stainless steel theme gives it a modern look.
This Townhouse has three king-size bedrooms that are equally appealing but only one lucky couple will have access to the master suite.
While all the bedrooms have access to their own private bathrooms only the master suite has a wall made up entirely of windows to provide endless views overlooking the ocean.
But fear not, as everyone can enjoy the views of the ocean from the outdoor patio with its own fireplace to keep warm on cold nights and its spacious furniture suitable for the whole group.
Not to mention the fact that there is a common area below the townhouse that provides immediate access to the beach and offers up games like ping pong and Jenga to keep guests entertained.
5. Waterfront Townhouse
Following a similar design to the Malibu Townhouse, this Waterfront Townhouse is an expensive place to rest your head but the views of the ocean make it all worth it.
The townhouse follows a contemporary style that makes you feel right at home and the touches of navy blue throughout its whitewashed theme really bring the place to life.
This townhouse is also set up in loft formation so one of the three spacious bedrooms is located upstairs overlooking the downstairs living space as well as the Pacific Ocean.
Speaking of bedrooms, each room boasts a heavenly king-size bed and a full private bath so that guests don’t need to wait in line to freshen up.
When you are not sitting on the couch taking in the views of the ocean as you snuggle up by the fireplace, you can be cooking a meal for your group in the full-size kitchen.
The wall of mirrors sits across from the wall to ceiling windows to create an effect where the waves of the ocean follow you everywhere.
Take it all in from your private outdoor patio where you can kick back with friends and roast marshmallows on your outdoor fireplace.
Head down to the recreation where you can make new friends over a game of ping pong, wash your clothes in the laundry room, and make a quick getaway to the beach.
6. Mountaintop Retreat
Perfect for large groups, the Mountaintop Retreat is close enough to the beaches of Malibu to make it convenient while also providing guests with the feeling of peaceful tranquility in the mountains.
The high ceilings and spacious windows help to pour in natural light and the feeling of comfort is undeniable.
The living room has a giant fireplace that can roar on chilly nights and comfortable couches to cozy up on for a Netflix binge-watching session.
There is even a grand piano for those who know how to play or are interested in dabbling in the hobby.
The full kitchen is a chef’s dream with a large island that makes it easy to cook meals for large groups with ease and the dishwasher makes cleaning a nonissue.
You will feel the sense of luxury the second you pull up in front of this breathtaking house as the hanging chandelier peaks through the massive window and the double entrance doors welcome you inside.
There are three bedrooms each with its own beach-style theme but the master suite is the one that grants you access to your own private patio overlooking the mountains.
However, each bedroom will allow you to sleep like a dream with memory foam mattresses in every room and private bathrooms make it easy to freshen up whenever you want.
Soak in the deep tub, clean clothes in your own laundry room, park your cars in the two-car garage. The hosts have thought of it all!
Just make sure you save time to sit in the backyard where you will be surrounded by greenery and left in awe of the mountains that surround you.
7. Modern Home
If you want to feel like you are living the life of a celebrity, look no further than the Modern Home in Malibu that screams luxury down to every last detail.
For starters, you will fall in love with this place before you even step inside as it sits atop a hill providing breathtaking views of both the mountains and the ocean from its wraparound windows.
There are almost no solid walls throughout this entire place so you will have endless views that will make it hard to ever even leave the house.
The living room is equipped with flashy decor like gold plated couches, a massive patterned rug, and a coffee table that shines so much that you can see your reflection.
Pieces of art that look like they belong in a museum are scattered throughout the open floor plan and the dining room is brought to life by the marble fireplace and the grand chandelier that hangs overhead.
The full kitchen is as sleek as it comes and the amenities make it easy to cook whatever meal you desire plus a dishwasher for a quick cleanup.
You’ll find quite a few different wall-to-ceiling libraries throughout the place and each one is fully stocked with books for anyone who likes to read in their downtime.
The two bedrooms boast their own unique features so you can’t go wrong with spending the night in either of the two. On one hand, you could have access to a private patio overlooking the mountains or you can admire the views of the ocean through your massive window.
8. Luxury Villa
Nestled high above a hill overlooking the Malibu Pier and Surfrider Beach, the Luxury Villa is an amazing place to spend the night for an experience in Malibu Beach that you will never forget.
This massive home can sleep up to sixteen people so it is perfect for large families looking to spend a vacation together or a big group of friends looking for the ultimate hangout spot.
Each and every room will leave you thoroughly impressed and there is no denying that this is just about as luxurious as it can get.
Granted this exquisite home costs an arm and a leg, if broken down amongst large groups it can be surprisingly affordable.
The home follows a modern style and it is obvious that the hosts have an artistic background or a stellar interior designer based on the way each room leaves you amazed.
The living room is pretty much a peninsula of windows so you can take in the breathtaking views of the ocean wherever you look and the couches are so comfortable that you can melt right into them.
The kitchen is a work of art with its dramatic hanging lights, built-in coffee machine, spacious island, and double oven. Check out the photos on Airbnb because you really have to see it to believe it.
There are six bedrooms to choose from each boasting its own unique design and almost all of them offer breathtaking views of the ocean or the surrounding mountains.
Plus, there are 4 and a half baths scattered throughout the home so you should never have to fight over the bathroom.
The backyard is another gem of its own with two separate sections offering amenities like an outdoor bar, massive sun loungers, a fire pit, a hot tub, a small private pool, and endless views.
9. Shabby Chic Malibu
A perfect blend of modern amenities and vintage style, you can’t go wrong with spending a night in Shabby Chic Malibu especially when you have a private beach in your backyard.
The entrance to this place is the definition of beachfront living and you will be instantly encaptured by the overwhelming feeling of relaxation.
You will walk into a living room perfectly peppered with boat-themed antiques where you can hang back to watch television immediately followed by a second living room overlooking the beach.
Take advantage of the full kitchen fully stocked with a coffee machine for cups of coffee on the beach and everything you could need to cook a gourmet dinner.
Right off the living room is an adult-size bunk bed sporting two queen size beds to sleep up to four guests and providing endless views of the ocean.
The master suite has a queen-size bed and access to a private patio located right on the beach so you can come and go as you please.
The second bedroom has a single bed with its own private bathroom and access to a small workspace so individuals can bunker down and enjoy some quiet time alone.
Both bathrooms in this cozy home are full size and you will have a hard time pulling yourself from the massive shower with its huge rainfall showerhead.
As beautiful as this home is, you will most likely end up spending most of your time outside with the sandy shore right at your backdoor calling you in.
Your private outdoor patio has a fire pit, loungers, a comfortable couch, and a small sandy area completely to yourself but just a few wooden steps lead you right onto the wide sweeping beach.
10. Surfrider Villa
Located along the edge of the Malibu Bluffs State Park, the Surfrider Villa makes it easy for you to spend all your time on the beach and the oceanfront views from your window are hard to beat.
The villa sits high up on a platform for the best possible view overlooking the Pacific Ocean and you spend hours just watching the waves crash up against the rocky shores.
Surrounded by rocks on both sides with a soft sandy center, the Surfrider Villa uses natural resources as a way to create a completely private beach you won’t find anywhere else.
The modern design leaves nothing to be desired and the black and white theme sprinkled with the occasional splash of blue and green are nothing short of eye-pleasing.
The living room is as cozy as it gets with a gas fireplace located right below the television, two comfy couches, and an even comfier lounge chair.
The massive mirror that sits across from the couches makes it easy for guests to take in the view of the ocean behind them without ever turning around.
The kitchen has everything you need to make dinner with ease and the industrial-style stove will have you contemplating the design of your kitchen back home.
Each of the three spacious bedrooms has something to offer like a personal fireplace, direct access to the back patio, and an ensuite bathroom.
And speaking of the patio, this spacious backyard space is everything you could hope for with spectacular views of the ocean that come to life during the sunset and a full dining space for guests to enjoy dinner with a view.
Head down the back steps and you are right on the beach!
11. La Costa Beach House
Nestled high above the famous La Costa Beach, the La Costa Beach House is more like a beachfront mansion and there is no denying the sense of luxury the moment you walk through the doors.
Every inch of this place is made up of designer furniture and the interior design is simply out of this world. It is nearly impossible to describe the beauty of this place to the fullest, so make sure you check out some of the photos on Airbnb.
But such a grand rental doesn’t come cheap. The cost of a night here can exceed over three thousand dollars making it nearly impossible for the average person to enjoy.
However, if you have a group of ten people to rent it out with, the cost can become a lot more reasonable.
And this is the kind of place that is worth the splurge. Huge designer couches wrap around a massive fireplace that can warm up the whole house on chilly nights.
The back wall is made up entirely of windows to guarantee every view of the beach possible whether you are kicking back in the living room, sitting out on the patio, or enjoying dinner in the dining room.
Each of the four bedrooms boasts its own full-size bathroom with spacious, walk-in rainfall showers and marble-lined counters.
But nothing can compare to the master suite with its wall-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean and incredible bathroom setup sporting a double waterfall shower with a skylight overhead and a huge tub perfect for soaking.
And when you have three separate outdoor spaces, you are bound to spend much of your time walking through the garden, taking in the ocean views from the lounge area, or enjoying dinner overlooking the water.
12. Carbon Beach
Some of the homes along Malibu Beach are no joke and this contemporary beach house on Carbon Beach is the perfect example of that.
Coming in at a whopping $14,500 a night, you have to have a lot of money lying around in order to score a night at this mansion of a villa.
But this place is Malibu Beach lifestyle in a nutshell and when it’s nestled atop stilts overlooking “Billionaire’s Beach”, it is bound to cost a pretty penny.
So live like a celebrity as you spend the night in a home that has made the cover of various home design magazines for its spectacular design and rest your head on only the highest quality materials.
You will find contemporary art peppered all throughout the home to add more beauty to an already breathtaking home and the designer furniture is the furthest thing from an eyesore.
There really is no way to properly describe just how impressive this home really is, so you have to check out the photos on Airbnb.
Just know that you will have endless views of the ocean around every turn, the interior design will leave you speechless, and the five bedrooms boast their own unique style with private ensuite bathrooms.
13. Beachfront Paradise
Attempting to steer away from the insanely priced rentals that make up most of Malibu Beach, the Beachfront Paradise is still not the cheapest accommodation but it is a great alternative to a $1,000+ rental.
This stay is perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway or an individual hoping to spend some quality alone time by the beach.
The apartment is just a few minutes away from all the excitement while also creating a peaceful oasis thanks to its private beach.
The kitchen may be on the smaller side but it has everything you could need to cook a full dinner and there is a coffee machine fully stocked for those early mornings by the beach.
Not to mention the fact that window paneled french doors open up to a spacious patio with lounge chairs and a glass railing overlooking the ocean.
A quick flight of stairs takes you right down to the beach where you can spend hours bathing in the sun without seeing another soul in sight.
14. Serene Cottage
Just minutes from the Malibu Pier, the Serene Cottage is the perfect place to spend the night near the beach without breaking the bank.
A gravel driveway leads you to your humble abode and the self check-in method ensures the feeling of total seclusion from start to finish.
Much of this cozy cottage is made up of windows that complete the overall theme of a mountainside retreat.
You could easily mistake this place for someone’s everyday living space thanks to the simple touches that really make it feel like home.
There are two bedrooms and the living room couch doubles as a sofa bed to accommodate a total of five people comfortably.
Cook a nice meal in the full-size kitchen and sit around the large dining room table to enjoy dinner as a family as you admire the views of the mountains that surround you.
15. Sand Suite
One of six oceanfront suites, the Sand Suite is carefully designed to be everything you could need and more during your time in Malibu Beach.
This one-bedroom suite is a dream come true for couples looking to spend some quality time together or for individuals seeking a quick getaway to the beach.
You know you are about to walk into a modern masterpiece before you even enter the glass doors but it becomes even more apparent once you are inside.
This is a studio so everything is available to you in one big open space and while you do not have a full kitchen, the kitchenette is fully stocked to accommodate your needs.
But you probably won’t spend that much time inside considering the scenic outdoor patio fully equipped with lounge chairs for relaxing evenings taking in the views of the ocean.
16. Charming Guesthouse
New to the Airbnb community, this Charming Guesthouse has quickly made a name for itself as one of the best Airbnbs in Malibu Beach thanks to its undeniable charm and breathtaking views.
Although this home is not located right on the beach, it is just a short drive away from all of the excitement Malibu has to offer and the affordable price makes it impossible to pass up.
The quiet neighborhood is enough to make you feel hidden away but the private deck overlooking the mountains takes the feeling of peaceful seclusion a step further.
The living room follows a simple design in the best way possible with white decor and colorful accents that welcome you to spend time here relaxing. Not to mention the grand fireplace that is ready for use.
While the kitchen doesn’t qualify as a full kitchen because of the lack of an oven, it goes one step further than your typical kitchenette with a four-burner stove and a small conventional oven for cooking.
Have your pick between three spacious bedrooms with accommodations up to eight people and take comfort in the fact that you don’t all need to share one bathroom.
17. Luxury Condo
Located on the iconic “Billionaire’s Beach” aka Carbon Beach, this Luxury Condo is almost too good to be true with amenities that will make you feel like a celebrity while maintaining a night average under one thousand dollars a night.
Walk inside to a carefully designed living space with log framed couches lined with colorful pillows to bring the home to life.
Sit on these comfy couches while you stare out at the water or hop in one of the hanging lounge chairs and peacefully sway while you take it all in.
The backsplash in the kitchen is enough to leave you mesmerized but one look at the industrial style stove with a double oven will leave the average cook in tears… of joy of course!
Both bedrooms have cozy queen-size mattresses that will make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud and two full baths make it easy to freshen up on command.
Throw in access to the community swimming pool and a staircase leading right to the beach and you may never want to leave!
18. Malibu Beachhouse
Overlooking Malibu’s beautiful Colony Beach, the Malibu Beachhouse is more than just a beachfront property but a staple to the town’s history which makes it a one-of-a-kind experience.
This historic home was built in 1932 and has been home to a variety of influential people including Vincent Prince and Steven Stills.
While the hosts have managed to maintain much of its vintage charm, modern touches and appliances have been added to ensure the best stay possible.
With its wide sweeping windows, you are guaranteed endless views of the waves crashing against the shore, and if you’re lucky you may even spot a few dolphins passing through.
The high ceilings make this place appear larger than life and there is never a bad time to kick back on the couch while taking in the views of the ocean.
Both of the bedrooms give off the ultimate beachy vibe with charming wallpaper that dates back to the early 1900s and wood-paneled ceilings that complement the ocean views.
There are multiple different outdoor spaces to enjoy and you can’t go wrong with spending time in any of them but if the water is really calling to you, just head down the stairs to your own private beach.
Plus, the hosts are gracious enough to let guests use any or all of the five sea kayaks located on the property for a quick way to get out on the water.
19. Bungalow Ten
With direct access to the beach, you can’t go wrong with spending a night in any of the waterfront bungalows but there is something about Bungalow Ten that makes it stand out amongst the rest.
The light wood floors and white interior make this bungalow appear even larger than it is and the use of natural light will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
You can’t help but wake up with a smile as you sit up from your airy queen size bed to the endless views of the ocean wishing you a good morning.
The couch in the living room doubles as a sofa bed that is surprisingly so comfortable that you may have trouble getting up in the morning. Plus, the warmth of the fireplace and the wall-to-ceiling view of the ocean makes it that much better.
Enjoy the use of a full-size kitchen and take comfort knowing that every meal you have will be partnered with the unparalleled views of the ocean.
After a long day, head out to the lounge chairs on your back deck to watch the sunset and make a quick getaway to the beach below you whenever you’d like.
20. SA beach Suite
Another Carbon Beach gem is the SA Beach Suite and it’s not just because of its impeccable views of the ocean in just about every room.
Part of what makes this suite stand out is the way it veers away from the typical beach style of white interior with blue accents and leans more towards a style focused on woodwork.
You will notice it in the way the dining room table’s legs are made up of thick wooden logs, how the television is encaptured by a wooden frame, and the patio blinds are made up of wood, but it is easy to tell before you even walk inside thanks to its wooden exterior as well.
But just because this suite has a focus on wood doesn’t make it rustic in the slightest. Everything about this place follows a simplistic modern style and you can’t help but fall in love with it.
It is important to note that there is not a full kitchen but the kitchenette is as nice as it gets with a high-quality coffee machine, conventional oven, and four-burner stove.
And just when you think this place can’t get any better, you will walk into the bathroom and become instantly amazed by the massive walk-in shower with a ginormous soaking tub located within it.
21. Malibu Retreat
Tucked away within a gated Malibu community, the Malibu Retreat will have you feeling like you have been transported to a hidden oasis of lush greenery and ocean views.
The vaulted ceilings paired with full-length windows and wide stretching skylights make the place feel larger than life and give the feeling of an outdoor experience without ever leaving the home.
People who enjoy cooking will have a field day in the impressive kitchen with its double oven, eight burner stove, and abundance of counter space.
Once dinner is cooked, sit down together in the dining room where you enjoy the views of the beach while you eat.
There are two spacious living rooms to stretch out on after a long day but nothing compares to sitting by the fireplace while you look up at the sea of stars through the skylight.
Have your pick between the four spacious bedrooms with accommodations for up to six people and enjoy the comfort of having three and a half bathrooms to choose from.
And speaking of bathrooms, the showers here make up half of the bathroom space with wrap-around benches that make it easy to spend the entire day there if you really wanted to.
Just don’t forget to spend time on either of the two spacious decks with a full dining set up for waterfront meals and a hot tub for those nights where you want to soak under the stars.
22. Monte Nido Retreat
Hidden amongst the mountains of Santa Monica, the Monte Nido Retreat may not be the closest to Malibu Beach but is still an ideal location if you have a car to take the short drive over.
Plus, for the price of less than two hundred dollars a night for a studio guesthouse in this prime location, this retreat is more than just your average deal.
Even though this guesthouse is connected to the main house, you will feel completely to yourself thanks to the self check-in method and private spaces.
You can tell that the hosts put a lot of time and effort into this build based upon the many small touches that make it feel more like home.
Pieces of artwork are scattered throughout the studio to add to the beauty and the private outdoor patio provides breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains.
When you are not relaxing in bed, making use of the full-size kitchen, or kicking back on the couch, you can be walking around the quiet neighborhood on the hunt for frequent wildlife sightings.
23. Mountain Studio
Just fifteen minutes from the iconic Malibu Pier stands the Mountain Studio and considering its prime location, is easily one of the most affordable rentals in the area.
As you drive to this rental you will already know that you are in for a treat as the road leading to it is one of the most scenic drives in this part of California.
During your downtime, feel free to wander around the neighborhood taking the narrow roads that loop around the canyons and open up to some incredible vistas.
The kitchenette is on the smaller side but has a two-burner stove for those looking to make a quick meal and a spacious fridge to store leftovers from your adventures out in town.
This is the ideal location for couples looking for a peaceful escape or individuals looking to get away from it all.
Take your morning coffee out to the private backyard patio where you can admire the towering mountains that surround you for the perfect way to start each day.
24. The Malibu Mystique
Calling all deal seekers, the Malibu Mystique is located right on the beach with stellar ocean views right from your window and somehow manages to cost less than four hundred dollars a night!
Considering the luxurious lifestyle of Malibu Beach, this rental is a complete steal and while it is cheap in cost, lacks none of the amenities that you would need for a good time.
In fact, it is almost suspicious how low the cost is considering its overall beauty but this is also the reason that reservations fill up over a year in advance.
As soon as you walk in the doors you will be greeted by an impressive full-size kitchen and even more appealing living room space.
Vibrant colored armchairs sit around a massive fireplace and a cozy L-shaped couch has endless views of the ocean as its backdrop.
The bedroom is even more interesting with its incredible closet display and trendy design that really gives the place character.
Make your friends a tasty dinner to take out on the private patio table for a meal with a view and then take the stairs leading right down to the beach for a peaceful stroll along the water.
25. Camp Fernwood
Nestled high amongst the mountains in Topanga, Camp Fernwood is less than a thirty-minute drive from the iconic Malibu Beach but it won’t feel like it as you are tucked away in this secluded mountain retreat.
This guesthouse is as romantic as it gets with a private patio hidden by a large hanging tree while still maintaining unobscured views of the Santa Monica mountain range.
Hanging lights amongst the trees and blankets dedicated to laying out amongst the stars make it easy to spend hours outside at night taking in all of the sounds of the wildlife around you.
The hosts have recently renovated the entire place with modern amenities while also holding true to their rustic style.
Cozy up on the queen-size bed as the electric fireplaces give the white log walls a natural glow or sit in the armchair to watch the flames dance around you.
The kitchenette has a hot plate for warming up quick bites and a coffee station so that you can start every morning with a smile.
26. Romantic Beachfront Apartment
As the name suggests, the Romantic Beachfront Apartment is the perfect place to hide away with your significant other and the modern charm is undeniable.
The apartment is made up almost entirely of white decor and the dark wooden beams that line that white ceiling really compliment the whole physique.
Two large couches overlook the ocean and beside it stands a spacious dining room table so you can enjoy each meal with a spectacular view.
The views don’t stop when you enter the kitchen and there is everything you could need here to cook a special meal for your significant other.
The queen-size bedroom is not the largest but it does grant you direct access to the deck where you can sit out to take in the views of the ocean or make a quick getaway to the sandy shore.
Even the walk-in shower is peppered with art as a marble statue stands within it holding up a fresh bath sponge for an intimate bathing experience.
The outdoor patio is guarded with a roof so that you can sit out on a lounger and enjoy the view of the ocean even on rainy days.
27. Waverly’s Bungalow
With direct access to a surprisingly quiet part of Malibu beach, Waverly’s Bungalow is a steal considering the low prices they offer and the endless views of the ocean waiting for you.
The vaulted ceilings and large windows pour in natural light and the black accents display a style unlike most other rentals along the beach.
Wickered lounge chairs with comfortable cushions sit around a fireplace lined with white bricks and encased in a unique iron cage for the most aesthetically pleasing approach.
Enjoy the luxury of a full-size kitchen while you admire its simple touches like the magnetic knife bar and the overhead light that is encaptured by the wheel of a boat.
The space is designed to accommodate up to two people but the hosts provide access to two twin-size cots that can be set up in the spacious living room to increase the living space to four.
The theme of the back patio contrasts with the black and white that you see throughout the bungalow but also makes you feel like you have a secondary place to escape the world.
The bright blue chairs and loungers sit out facing the water and the glass railing ensures that you will never have an obscured view of the beach.
28. Modern Pool House
While this Modern Pool House is not located directly on the beach, it offers a wide range of qualities that qualify it as one of the best Airbnb beach houses in Malibu Beach.
For starters, this spacious pool house includes access to a private pool that is fully equipped with a diving board and overlooking the mountains.
There is a separate patio space for relaxing that is equal to the size of the pool if not more and offers breathtaking views of the ocean peeking out between the mountains.
Plus, there are smaller patios that are peppered around the grounds that allow you to take in the views of the ocean and the mountains from a different perspective.
You can even admire the views from the stylish dining room thanks to the giant wall-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the corner of the house.
The same views can be enjoyed while you cook up a tasty meal on the restaurant-grade stove or brew yourself up a cup of coffee using the french press.
29. Mid-Century Studio
Another affordable but highly impressive Airbnb rental is the Mid-Century Studio and you are in no way shorted of the breathtaking oceanfront views.
In fact, much of this rental is made up entirely of windows so you can take in the views from all around as you kick back and relax.
The studio is stylish to say the least with bright colored couches and laminated concert posters covering the walls.
Even the queen size bed has a pop of color with its white duvet splashed with a rainbow blanket that perfectly matches the surrounding theme.
Enjoy the spacious, marble bathroom with its walk-in shower and make use of the kitchenette which is fully stocked with a Nespresso machine, a microwave, a fridge, and all the plates, cups, and silverware you could need.
No matter what part of the studio you are hanging out in, you will have endless views of the Pacific Ocean out in the distance.
30. Unique Retreat
With Malibu Beach just a short drive away, you can enjoy the best of both worlds thanks to the Unique Retreat and its prime location amongst the Santa Monica mountains.
What makes this rental so much different than the rest is the way it combines a rustic lifestyle with free-roaming chickens and dense forestry with modern elegance.
The Unique Retreat looks like a work of art tucked away between towering trees and the many floor-to-ceiling windows flood in all the natural light.
Once you walk inside you will become even more impressed by the simplicity of it all while also maintaining a sense of luxury.
Sit back on the couch and watch your favorite shows on Netflix, make yourself an espresso each morning in the full kitchen, cozy up at night in the queen-size bed, and take all the time you need in the waterfall shower before stepping out onto heated floors.
After a long day of exploring the nearby beaches or mountains, head outside to the picnic table to unwind as you gaze at the stars and listen to the wildlife around you.
