"Malibu Beach Motion Picture Colony"

Malibu Colony is a neighborhood first created in 1926 when May Rindge, who personally owned all of Malibu (known as Rancho Malibu), placed lots on this small street up for lease. Although the asking price in those days was nearly $1 per linear foot of beach frontage, the main residents who could afford such luxury were the movie stars.

The name Malibu Beach Motion Picture Colony was the first name given to this famous address. Some of the first Colony residents were Bing Crosby, Ronald Colman, Gary Cooper, Gloria Swanson, Marie Dressler, Warner Baxter, Jackie Coogan and many others. When the land was finally offered up for sale in 1936, celebrities such as Burgess Meredith, Cary Grant, Brian Donlevy and June Lockhart grabbed up homes in this neighborhood only 20 miles from Hollywood.

Today, this neighborhood continues to provide privacy and entertainment for many of the most well-known celebrities of our time. It is a small community conveniently located within walking distance to markets, boutiques, play areas and restaurants. It is a wonderful location within the center of Malibu's "downtown" area, and yet quietly, discreetly, and strategically protected. It is an experience we are sure you will enjoy and look forward to returning to again and again.
