Welcome to Malibu Colony

Home to Malibu's Hollywood heart


You'd be forgiven for mistaking Malibu Colony as Hollywood West. Indeed, stars of the silver screen have long called this gated community home. Located immediately west of Malibu Lagoon State Beach, past stars such as Barbara Stanwyck, Bing Crosby, and studio head Jack Warner and current celebrities, including Tom Hanks, have called this enclave home.

Part of the attraction is that Malibu Colony is a time capsule of sorts. Unlike other similarly-esteemed Los Angeles-area neighborhoods, the former Malibu Beach Motion Picture Colony has maintained a link to its Golden Age of Hollywood past. New construction is the exception, not the rule. New residents often opt to maintain and improve upon the character of the neighborhood's classic beach cottages and bungalows versus replacing them.

Such an esteemed address comes at a price. Homes rarely hit the open market, and when they do, asking prices command $10 million or more. It's a small price to pay for the private, glamorous lifestyle Malibu Colony offers.

What to Love

  • Living shoulder to shoulder with Hollywood elite elite
  • Private, gated community with outstanding Malibu shopping and dining a five-minute walk away
  • A haven for outdoor lovers with Legacy Park to the north, Malibu Lagoon State Beach to the east, and Malibu Beach and the Pacific Ocean immediately south

People & Lifetyle

The Hollywood lifestyle remains alive and well in Malibu Colony. Beyond its glitzy roster of residents, however, its greatest asset is its location. Unlike many of Malibu's most coveted communities, the guard-gated Malibu Colony is set back from the Pacific Coast Highway, buffered by Malibu Lagoon State Beach. 

Perfect for those seeking to escape bright Hollywood lights or wanting a glamorous yet laid-back beach bungalow lifestyle, the community features two distinct experiences. Homes with beach frontage garner much of the attention but are situated on narrow lots that’ll get you up close and cozy with your neighbors. Across Malibu Colony Road, the lots and homes are far more substantial—with many triple in size—and are large enough to accommodate a full-size tennis court (in addition to your multi-million dollar abode).

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

Restaurants, bars, and shops sit just across the Pacific Coast Highway from the community in the Malibu Country Mart. Dining highlights include the Greek-infused Taverna Tony, Italian favorite Tra di Noi, and seafood staple Broad Street Oyster Company.

Shopping includes plenty of prominent retailers, such as Urban Outfitters, and numerous quaint shops, including Toy Crazy and Diane Kron Chocolatier.

Things to Do

Malibu Lagoon State Beach borders the community's eastern edge with access to the Adamson House and Malibu Lagoon Museum and the legendary surf destination First Point. The historic Malibu Pier is less than a mile away.


Malibu Colony is home to a number of excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:
