In my search for a unique spot to rest our head along the California Coast for a family road trip before the Thanksgiving holiday I stumbled upon the Surfrider Hotel in dreamy Malibu, California overlooking First Point Malibu and the Pacific Ocean. The Surfrider is the perfect blend of modernity and comfort taking inspiration from the picturesque Malibu landscape and rich heritage of California surf culture. Personifying Malibu’s historic beach-town community, the original 1950s-era motel has been transformed into a serene boutique hotel that gives guests a curated and memorable visit that makes one feel like they are staying in their very own Malibu Beach House. Coastal living at its best includes custom surfboards by local shapers Wax Surf Co, Deadkooks, and Keegan and Gibbs to a beautiful roof deck and bar exclusive to guests all topped off with Bellino Linens and Grown Alchemist amenities. If Malibu is on your radar check it out and better yet check yourself in!
