About this listing

Small economy room with double bed--tranquil creek side home under oaks, sycamores, sequoias and plants native to Topanga Canyon. Enjoy the waterfall, swim in the pebble stone chlorine-free pool, sit by the fire pit or hike Topanga State Park.

Where your dollars go: All proceeds benefit a nonprofit hospice home, Gabriel’s House, the future design for Anam Cara.

The space

You will enjoy a small economy (8' x 10'6") private bedroom with a full/double size bed, exterior French doors to the deck, private patio and outdoor dining area, private in-room vanity with sink and shared bath on same floor. Newly remodeled serene tri-level creekside handicap accessible home in the Santa Monica Mountains with bamboo floors, expansive grounds, meditation gardens and labyrinth, swimming pool, gas fire pit, and BBQ. This charming home was owned by a roadhouse music lover and was part of the American Folk music scene where many household names visited and played long into the night.

Five of six bedrooms and the great room have French doors opening to the beautiful wrap around redwood deck that encompasses the home. California native gardens and grounds include multiple areas for private meditation, yoga, and quiet contemplation.

There are 5 parking spaces on-site (one of which is reserved for the owner). If there is space available, one vehicle for your room may park inside the driveway, ALL the way forward, do not park behind or block any other vehicles. No guest visitor vehicles inside the gate at any time. Vehicles must be able to turn around safely in the driveway to pull forward out onto Topanga Canyon Blvd. There is ample parking either on-site or across the street in a parking area or along the Blvd. Flexible check-in means after 3:00pm, same day booking after 3:00pm is possible, and late check-in allowed.

Where your dollars go: All proceeds benefit a nonprofit hospice home, Gabriel’s House, the future design for Anam Cara. I am converting my home to care for individuals with a terminal illness.

Absolutely beautiful house! Wonderful interior and spotless clean. Selvserve breakfast with good selection of food items waiting in the fridge. Amazing pool. The only minus for me was that the a/c can not be regulated for the room. I prefer sleeping with the a/c off and that was not possible. Hence I couldnt leave the windows open and night...something I wish for in a nature setting. Noisy road just outside the door. But all in all a very beautiful place, highly recommended!

Response from Mitch:
Franzi, Sorry you did not receive my text message response to your text message inside of (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), I did reply in the same thread that you wrote me in. The a/c for the whole house is a central system and cycles on/off with the thermostat, but the air handler/fan is often running 24/7 to keep the house fresh and to circulate air when I open windows on cool nights. Perfectly fine to have bedroom windows open in the evening. I also sent you instructions for how to adjust the temperature/air flow with your room vent. Sorry you did not get the message. All the best, Mitch

Mitch was quick and efficient with communication and made check-in seamless. The room was clean and charming and the grounds were peaceful and spiritual. It was nice to get to know his family, who was briefly in town and share a quick breakfast together. I wish I stayed another night in this magical place.

What an enchanting and miraculous time I had! Mitch made it so special! A gentle, poetic touch with fresh flowers in virtually every room, soft music, a virtual fireplace, creating a lovely ambiance, plus I enjoyed a gushing stream out back with beautiful nature sounds and relaxing and refreshing breezes. A lovely pool out front and a delicious assortment of breakfast food cheered my heart. Best of all was the enchantment I received from finding a beautifully-written book with the same title as this BnB, subtly placed in the living room, which I read with great delight. Finding another lovely, subtle surprise in my room tickled my fancy, as well... Great sensitivity and attention to detail with zen-like beauty. Sensitive souls, a lovely, peaceful home for your journey awaits you here...
