It sounds like you are not working from home therefore Malibu without your own wheels isn't likely the best choice for you. Other top beachfront communities which have better access to public transportation like bus and taxi's and also very high walkability ratings are Manhattan Beach & Santa Monica. Santa Monica is more diverse, young and vibrant whereas Manhattan Beach is more affluent, clean and vacation like. I wouldn't dream of putting you off on Malibu because Malibu is a paradise in and of itself. But you will want/need a car here. If I can be of assistance with your search when you get here, I cover all of the areas mentioned and am happy to help. If you want to be in walking/bicycling distance of the heart of Malibu central near City Hall, Courthouse, Supermarket, Restaurants/Shopping etc. then I recommend Malibu Road. The rents are high since these multi million dollar luxury beach homes are directly on the beach in the most sought location. Be in touch if you need further assistance.
Close to the J Paul Getty Museum.
Cross street is PCH and Coastline Dr.
That is nearby Topanga Canyon.
Check the bus schedules.
on the lighter side...
the song nobody walks in L.A. comes to mind.
Find someone to work with and go from there.
