Make Yourself at Home

Make Yourself at Home: Review of Surfrider, Malibu

Located in one of the more fabled spots of the Pacific Coast Highway, the Surfrider Hotel overlooks the sublime Surfrider Beach in Malibu where it is said that Hollywood discovered surfing. The intimate Californian boutique hotel is made up of 18 rooms, 2 suites, a library,  a guest-only rooftop bar, and a delicious restaurant.

What makes the Surfrider Hotel so special?

“Make yourself at home” is a common theme at this California Beach House. Think hammocks, surfboards, and pure relaxation. The design itself, a mix between Australian/Californian chic and Scandinavian design gives you this feel-good, wholesome vibe from the moment you step indoors, to long after you leave. The Surfrider has an unconditional approach to hospitality; designed, developed, and operated by the owners: husband and wife duo Matthew Goodwin and Emma Crowther, this community lead, farm-to-table, welcoming boutique hotel is your ultimate Californian dream. 

What to expect when staying at Surfrider Hotel?

Expect being woken up by the smell of warm bread and pastries from Venice’s favourite bakery, Gjusta, and revived by the fresh and fruity acai bowls. Sign up to the picnic program and let the Surfrider team prepare you a fresh picnic from the local farmer’s market, with crisp Californian white wine. Enjoy your surroundings with fully customized hiking maps and experiences that only locals know about. After a full day of hiking, surfing, or just enjoying Malibu’s splendor, revel in the warm outdoor shower before hitting the rooftop bar for a well-deserved cocktail.
