It’s easy to see why Malibu is a West Coast hot spot — year-round sun, laid-back luxury and miles of sandy beaches are a few of the biggest draws. For those with their sights set on a Malibu second home, there’s no better place to soak up the SoCal lifestyle than a stunning seaside deck.Perched over the surf, Malibu decks are ideal for relaxing under the sun or with a view of the stars — and not just the ones in the sky. It’s a favorite destination for some of nearby L.A.'s biggest celebrity names looking to get away from the spotlight.  But Malibu’s celebrities aren’t the only ones getting all decked out — check out these six Malibu decks designed to make the most of the sunshine and scenery. 

Balcony on the bluff

The waves are Malibu’s biggest playground. The worldwide surfing mecca offers ideal conditions for both beginners and pros, and this deck provides front row seats to all the action. A two-way fireplace accentuates the indoor/outdoor living space in this Malibu Pacaso, great for warming up after a day on the waves or a walk on the beach. Those looking for privacy and quiet will find what they seek in this serene hideaway — it’s conveniently located on the Pacific Coast Highway, but there is virtually no vehicle noise inside or out.

Deck the hills

This Pacaso’s terraced deck carves out multi-level living in the rolling Malibu hills. Angled to take full advantage of the 270-degree ocean vistas, each tier is a testament to what this place is all about. Soak in the top-level hot tub under the sun. Then take a step down to relax on the lounge chairs in elevated sophistication. One terrace below, cool off in the lap pool and enjoy al fresco happy hour in the outdoor bar — just be sure to raise a glass to the unparalleled Southern California views.

Cookout lookout

This rooftop dining room takes the term “table with a view” to a whole new level. With seating for eight and plush lounge areas on either side, this deck is a magnificent place to enjoy every meal. The home’s elevator makes it easy to bring culinary creations up from the custom chef’s kitchen, or order from one of Malibu’s top-tier (and often celebrity-studded) restaurants. No matter what’s on the menu, this deck’s view of the Pacific takes the cake.

Rooftop relaxation

This modern home takes swimming to new heights — the third-floor rooftop, to be exact. Custom stepping stones create a pathway through the water to a floating deck. The reward: Front-row seats to perfect sunsets.
