Malibu

Known for its Mediterranean climate and ocean coastline, Malibu is the ultimate California lifestyle at its best. The sandy beaches and clear water attract international surfers and beachgoers from across the globe. The 21 mile stretch of coastline extends south from Tuna Canyon to Point Mugu in the north with Pacific Coast Highway dividing the Malibu Beaches.

‘Humaliwo’ is the word Malibu derives from, a Spanish interpretation of a Cumash Native American phrase that means ‘the surf sounds loudly.’

Frederick Hastings & Rhoda May Knight Rindge acquired the 13,000 acre area in 1891. The Rindges were known as the King & Queen of Malibu. They had several notable homes, in Los Angeles (Harvard & 25th), Santa Monica (Ocean & Wilshire), and Malibu Canyon. Rhoda was an entrepreneur that founded Malibu Potteries in 1926, established a cattle ranch, operated the Malibu Movie Colony – beachfront cottage rentals, and built the since-combusted Rindge Castle on Laudamas Hill.

Rhoda Rindge Adamson, their daughter, built the still-standing historic Spanish-style Adamson House designed by Stiles Clements – a cultural landmark and often referred to as Malibu’s first beach house.

Popular neighborhoods include Malibu Colony, Serra Retreat, Broad Beach, El Matador Beach, Carbon Beach, Malibu Cove, Escondido Beach, Topanga Beach, Point Dume, Malibu Park, Malibu West, and Big Rock Mesa.
