  • Awesome historical museum. Ocean front views are breath taking. Perfect for a wedding.
  • It is beautiful it overseees a small beach/lagoon
  • I was able to roam around the immaculate grounds of this place without bother or judgment. During this time I executed a series of amazing jumpkicks off the various ledges and terrain points available to me during this time. The entire beach full of onlookers watched in amazement as I must have looked a spitting image to the great J. C. V. D (Jean Claude Vann Damme)
  • Love this place. A fantastic place to take a quiet walk. Perfect view from the grounds of the iconic Malibu Pier.
  • Found this house while walking. The setting is just beautiful, the gardens have stunning views of Malibu and the house is gorgeous with the historic tiles from the local area.
