The history of the "Malibu Beach Motion Picture Colony" is told in detail on this MalibuComplete.com page. Today's Colony continues to attract superstars of the entertainment industry plus wealthy business and professional people who appreciate the combination of stellar beach property, privacy, and exclusiveness that the Malibu Colony offers. Its unique position as the "original" Malibu sets it apart from other locations.

The list of well known names who live in the Colony today or have lived in the Colony is amazingly long, including but by no means limited to Jeff Bridges, Tom Hanks, Woody Harrelson, Kevin Kline, Bette Midler, Bill Murray, Rob Reiner, and Tori Spelling. Other residents have less familiar names but represent major money earned in business or behind the scenes of the entertainment world.

Malibu Colony entrance guard houseEntry to the Colony is controlled by a guard house at the Malibu Road entrance, manned 24x7. On the beach side, where the public can roam "seaward of the mean high tide line", guards are also on patrol to ensure that public visitors to not tresspass or otherwise abuse their access.

Problems at the Colony include a high water table that leads to septic tank malfunctions, hardly the kind of issue that megastars want to deal with. Since the Colony was one of the very first Malibu neighborhoods, some of the infrastructure (water, electric, etc.) shows its age and may require repair or upgrade.
