The rental season is upon us here in Malibu and it’s time for people to start reserving homes for the 2014 summer season. March is typically when my phone first starts to ring with people wanting to get a head start on securing Malibu beach rentals for June, July, and Aug. The most in demand spots are Carbon Beach, Malibu Road, Escondido Beach, and Point Dume. The best homes will be leased by April and by May the only places left are generally those with dated looks, funky smells, or crazy prices.
I just finished my first lease of the summer…a modest place a Latigo for $40k per month. This client started looking in back Feb. because she was afraid of not being able to find a good place for under $50k. For that price she secured a cute, but small, remodeled beach shack right above the water with a great surf break right in front.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 most expensive Malibu rentals just now hitting the market.
1) $200,000 per month 24434 MALIBU RD , MALIBU 90265
Located on Malibu Road, this steel and glass architectural features three levels, a steel lap pool, and enough room to have a few hundred guest over. The master occupies one entire floor and there is a guest house made of round glass. Tony Stark would feel right at home.
2) $200,000 per month 23402 MALIBU COLONY RD #105
This 5 bedroom Malibu Colony home was designed for “entertaining and lounging” according the MLS. It features an outdoor kitchen with custom BBQ, a fire pit for the cool evenings, and a sun-deck above the sand. This is a home where luxury, comfort, and a laid back “vibe” are perfectly blended. This Malibu Colony home consistently gets rented every summer and books early…..don’t wait!
3) $175,000 23660 MALIBU COLONY RD #42
Parking for 8 cars should be reason enough to rent this Malibu Colony beach house. You’ll need that just for the fleet of shuttles bringing guests in thru the private Colony gates for your 4th of July party. There is an indoor heated pool, a 3rd story den with panoramic ocean views, and an elevator for when your morning beach walks take you a bit too far.

Described as the “Hamptons Meets Malibu Colony” this thoroughly remodeled Colony beach home sits on a double lot of 60 feet.
