Malibu 

The City of Malibu has 21 miles of scenic coastline, and according to the 2016 U.S. Census, has 12,879 residents. It is a closely-knit residential community known for its beautiful beaches and Hollywood and entertainment industry homeowners. Most of the people in Malibu live close to the Pacific Coast Highway, which runs along the coast, as well as up a mile into the narrow canyons, which are just as much a part of the city of Malibu as the beach-front homes. Topanga Canyon runs along the east of the city and along the north is the Santa Monica Mountains, which border Agoura Hills, Calabasas and Woodland Hills. The Pacific Ocean is to the south and Ventura County lies to the west. Malibu is home to Pepperdine University, as well as some of the most expensive properties in Los Angeles County.

Residents and visitors enjoy Malibu for the variety of landscapes it offers, including beaches, mesas and canyons. The museums, parks, and landmarks ensure a vibrant arts and entertainment culture. The Chumash Indians were the first inhabitants of Malibu, who called the stretch of beach where the waters enter Malibu Creek, “umaliwo”, which translates to: “the surf sounds loudly.” In 1542, Spanish explorer Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo first took note of the Chumash village on the site where the Malibu city offices stand today. In 1802, a 13,000 acre land grant was purchased by Spanish settler Jose Bartoleme Tapia who established Rancho Topanga Malibu Semi Sequit. The property passed from generation to generation until it was purchased by Frederick Hastings Rindge, a wealthy New Englander who guarded the privacy of the property, even to the point of building a private railroad as a way to keep the Pacific Railroad from building through the property.

In 1929, the State of California finally won the right to build the Pacific Coast Highway through the property. Also by this time, the widow of Frederick Hastings, May Rindge, conceded to subdividing the property for sale and lease in lots. The Rindge house, also known as the Adamson house, sits beside the Malibu Pier as part of the Malibu Creek State Park.

Opposite the lagoon is where the first colony in the area was settled. And a half mile east of the pier is the site of what was formerly known as Malibu Potteries, a small ceramic tile factory that produced the highly collectible Malibu tile used in the design of many Los Angeles area buildings and homes in Beverly Hills. Malibu continued to develop as an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County until 1991 when it officially became a city and was given the authority of local governance.

Malibu homes are located within several communities, the most notable of which are: Broad Beach, Carbon Beach, Malibu Colony, Encinal Bluffs, Serra Retreat, and Point Dume. Although many people live in Malibu year round, the city also has many part-time residents who own property as second and third homes. Prices for single family homes in Malibu can range anywhere from $700,000 for a small home tucked in the mountains, to well over $30 million for an oceanfront home in one of its exclusive neighborhoods.
