Inside the Malibu Hotel We’re Obsessed With

August 10th, 2018

If you’re the kind of person who likes hotels with character (and of course you are) then The Surfrider Malibu is your California dream come true. The 1950s roadside motel has been renovated to beachy perfection by hotelier couple Emma Crowther Goodwin and Matthew Goodwin, who moved to Malibu from NYC to take on the project. Emma, who’s originally from Australia, is never more at home than when she’s by the water. Everything about her, from her sunkissed tan right down to her white linen overalls, is 100% beach babe. She and Matthew don’t just live the dream themselves — they’re intent on sharing it with every guest who checks into their historic property on the PCH, designed to feel like your ultimate California beach house. Go behind the scenes with us in the video below, and scroll down to see inside the Malibu hotel we’re obsessed with. PS: We’re never checking out.

    Although any type of surfing scares me, I loved the article. How about getting the recipe for the “endless summer’ cocktail?
