Hello from Malibu!
Are YOU considering a move to Malibu, California, then YOU might like to know a bit about life here in the BU! I would like to share a bit of my life, my world in Malibu, California. I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, moved here in 1981 and I have chosen to call Malibu my home for the many reasons that I am happy to share with you.
Many families chose to move to Malibu for the quality of the schools. Many families who have spent thousands of dollars on private schools in the LA area give up and move to Malibu to save money on the tuition. Malibu High School is a bit like a private school, small in size and well managed. The graduating class has between 123-155 students, so the experience is more family like for the students. Many of the teachers live in Malibu and interact with the students in other venues. There are three elementary schools. All of them are highly rated by the state. My son went to Webster Elementary and he had a wonderful experience at this school. However, if one of your children is not doing well there, you can apply to move them to one of the other elementary schools, which is a great option. Furthermore, since we are part of the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District, you can also opt to attend Santa Monica High School or one of their Charter Schools.
Recenlty I went to a play at Pepperdine University at Smothers Theater. Pepperdine University is a valuable asset in this community. They offer a wealth of arts, sports, and a vast array of resources to the members of the Malibu community. Their theatre draws not only student productions, but, many well-known artists. They have concerts, a wonderful art museum, sporting events that the families attend. They hold summer camps if your children want to excel in different sports or cheerleading camps! Their campus offers many amenities for the residents of Malibu to utilize. Best of all, if you need babysitters or tutors, they have students that make themselves available. Please refer to my website http://www.beverlytaki.com
for a complete list of private and public schools in the area.
The lifestyle in Malibu is perfect. You see nature every day, you smell good aromas from the ocean and plants, you see beauty and open space and you avoid the traffic on a weekend for just getting around town on errands. Yet, you are close to the miracles of Los Angeles and all the fine arts and amenities that the expansive city has to offer.
Serra Retreat is one of those beauties that you look at on top of the hill. It is an old Franciscan Retreat overlooking the area. It is utilized for retreats, weekend for church groups, etc., View this link for more information, http://www.serraretreat.com
. Under the hills of the retreat is a gorgeous neighborhood that many celebrities call home.
Malibu has several family neighborhoods such as Malibu Park and Malibu West, which is near Juan Cabrillo Elementary, the middle school and Malibu High School. This area is across from world famous Zuma Beach, where the kids love to go.
The more eastern Neighborhoods would be: Sunset Mesa; the closest to town, next door to the Getty Museum, Big Rock Area, Serra Retreat, Malibu Country Estates and then Point Dume which is in the middle of Malibu.
Point Dume is the most popular neighborhood for families. The lots are all large and the kids can walk around on the new sidewalks all the way to the elementary school, to the park and to the market. Point Dume homes sell very quickly!!!
Malibu is not primarily celebrity at all, that is a major fallacy. In fact, the median household income is more like $100,000. You can find more out about demographics on the Chamber’s website: http://malibu.wliinc3.com/visitor/index.asp
