Malibu inspired beach walk

When I first arrived in Palm Beach to live this winter, l was so excited to find such a special corner of the world. I couldn't wait to share it with family and friends from Sydney. I always knew that the Coast was full of stunning scenery and coastline, yet I'd never known about what I now call "the Coast's Malibu".

This little gem of a spot lies at the very southern end of Palm Beach. If you stroll along the sand starting from this southern point, you'll feel like you're in an exclusive beach area of California. There's a stretch of gorgeous mansions and shacks, set slap bang right on the sand. I don't think there's any other part of The Coast that has such stunning beachfront property. And lo and behold, there are no annoying crowds, just a turquoise sea dotted with a few swimmers and surfers. As I soon discovered, "Jefferson Lane" is the exclusive address where you'll find all of these homes, and I've decided that I've got to live there one day.

In fact, if you do a bit of exploring in the area, you'll often see the lucky residents taking their dogs (and cats, can you believe) for a stroll outside on the beach. Well the beach actually is their backyard I suppose. Some of the houses have stairs going straight from the house to the sand. Talk about driving me crazy with envy!

Funnily enough, I wondered if my visitors from Sydney would be as awestruck as me, as I tend to get excited easily. So I was eager to see their reactions. "OMG this is like Malibu!" My friend Amber announced before also looking a bit anxious with envy. So I know I'm on the right track.

We decided that the only way to get over our distress was to pick out which houses we would eventually own. Mine is a New England style shack with nautical decorations around the balcony. Amber chose a Mediterranean style mansion.

So make some time and do this Jefferson Lane beach stroll, and pick out your house - before it gets snapped up.
