Located on a private road with easy access to nearby hiking trails, our Topanga guesthouse is a perfect getaway spot for travelers who enjoy relaxed, outdoor, friendly vibes. Set amongst the cottages of a 100+ year-old family estate, the rustic modern studio has its own kitchenette and private bathroom. It overlooks a sunny lawn and a beautiful grove of ancient oak trees that shade a seasonal creek and a funky old rope bridge.

Guest access

The house is used by our personal guests when we're not renting it, so it's appointed with all the comforts and amenities we like to provide for our own family, including dishes, silverware, cooking supplies, a coffee maker, microwave and mini-fridge. Laundry is in a covered outdoor space that is also accessible to our guests. A beginner's surfboard and various other beach items are available for guest use.

Interaction with guests

We are are pleased to serve guests who value their privacy while on vacation, however the guesthouse partially faces our home and front yard, so you should expect to see us while we're out and about.

The house is very nice and tidy. Car can be parked next to the house and the view is good! Must try if you want a mountain stay experience.

Great place to stay. I'm not great at writing reviews but I'd defiantly stay there again.

The space itself is well equipped with everything you could need and is extremely comfortable, bright, clean, and quaint. We got a wonderful night of sleep in and the heavenly bed made us never want to leave! We were also able to see some of a meteor shower right from the yard, being away from city lights :). We really appreciated being able to check in later, Jolieba was great at communicating. And it was a pleasure to briefly meet Tim and Maurice in the morning before heading out to a hike in the morning. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Super cute little studio with all the comfort you need in a beautiful setting! Jolieba and little Maurice were super friendly. Restaurants and cafés are a 2 min drive. Definitely not to be missed in Topanga Canyon :)
