Malibu Colony is often called “the original Malibu.” It is one of the most famous miles in the world. It became one of the first desirable Malibu neighborhoods in the late 1920s when the widow of an oil and electric company magnate, May Rindge (“Queen of Malibu”) owned all 27 miles of a then almost-unreachable and deserted coastline. In the midst of financial trouble, she began leasing beach lots to movie stars, giving birth to what became known as the exclusive “Malibu Beach Motion Picture Colony.”
This is no doubt a star-studded locale. With just about 100 homes, and lots starting at 30 feet wide, Malibu Colony is a desirable location.
Today, celebrities and business moguls are drawn to Malibu Colony for its beautiful beach properties and privacy. During the summer, this guard-gated enclave is infused with multi-generational families and has a great summer vibe. It is located in close proximity to the iconic surfing spots 1st point and 3rd point. One of the few “true” neighborhoods of Malibu, residents of Malibu Colony go all out on Halloween, with decorations and effects that rival many horror film movie sets. July 4th is also quite spectacular, as the party atmosphere is prevalent throughout the street. The evening ends with a private barge firework display.
Malibu Colony is also ideally located close to the Malibu Country Mart, the Lumber Yard, and Malibu Village, which is the center of Malibu. In this quaint and approachable shopping center area, there are high-end boutiques, name-brand stores, and an array of fine and casual dining options like Tra di Noi, Café Habana, Taverna Tony’s, Mr. Chows, Marmalade, Malibu Kitchen, Malibu Burger (Fall 2016). SunLife Organics, Malibu’s premier juice-bar is also located in the Country Mart. Also nearby is the Malibu Colony Plaza, with retail stores, a grocery store, the Vitamin Bar, Malibu Yogurt, and hip restaurants like Ollo and Bui Sushi.
