A nice spot in Malibu. Great views of the beach and pier. Take the tour($8) and see some fantastic tile work. Lovely house with incredible views. Docents are friendly and well informed. Strolling around the grounds is free.There is street parking, but the best bet is to use the paid parking lot next to the house.

Not to missed. They offer wonderful tours were you learn everything about the Adamson family, the Malibu tile works, Adohr Farms etc. I never tire of seeing the beautiful house on the ocean. You can feel that the family is still there.

We had driven by this area many times, not realizing until I did some research on places to visit in Malibu that it existed. Our car club visited the venue and loved everything about the tour. We did have to park our cars back in a shopping center and walk across the bridge, which was no problem. The story of the Adamson house is interesting and the décor and view spectacular.

It is easy to miss this treasure driving along the Pacific Coastal Highway through Malibu. But if you only have time to look at the grounds, it's definitely worth it. The home of one of the original local families, their story has been outlined by plaques around the grounds and outside of the house - and includes example of the long-gone Malibu Pottery business. We didn't get the chance to take the house tour but it was clear from peering through the windows that it was a glimpse into high style 1930's living. The sign is easily missed but the property is on the south side of Malibu Lagoon.

Beautiful small historic home in a wonderful location. The lawned and tiled grounds - converted from what were originally sand dunes - are beautifully maintained with wonderful subtropical vegetatlon. Fabulous views right over the Pacific, towards Malibu and over Malibu lagoon, a major bird reserve. The house was not open when we visited but the grounds were. There are good explanation of the history of the family, the house and the gardens on plaques placed in the grounds. The ceramic tiles which were used to decorate parts of the walls of the house and garden walls are Spanish-tyle azulejos, well-known for their beautiful colours and symmetrical designs. Well worth a visit.
