Very clean guest house in a large, private yard. It is a really comfortable home for 2 adults and family. The guest house is super quiet, has a modern interior, great bathroom & bedroom, full kitchen & living room. It's a great value- especially when you consider hotel prices in Santa Monica, and we're 10 minutes from the beach!

The space

The guest house is really nice- people love it because it's so comfortable, practical and quiet. There are 3 rooms in the guest house: 1- Large bedroom with a big and really comfortable bed, 2- kitchen with a living room which has a very comfy pullout couch, 3- a great bathroom with shower. It's a really nice family space as you also have a large, private deck on the back of the guest house, for dining or suntanning. The location is awesome as you're central to all of LA, though you're in a quiet little neighbourhood.

Guest access

You have full access to a washer/dryer, your own large private deck, the whole back yard and a parking spot.

Interaction with guests

Happy to offer advice on where to go, what to do. Other than that, we leave you alone to enjoy yourself. My wife, Ursula speaks Swiss German and French if you need any 'translation service'. My English is ok, but I'm working on it!

Other things to note

If you're into the beach or outdoorsy stuff, we've got surf boards, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, etc. Bring your hiking shoes if you like a nice morning hike as we've got great trails right outside our front yard.

Paul and Ursula were both lovely people who made us feel very welcome. The guest house was great; both private and comfortable. We had a most relaxing stay in Topanga Canyon and would highly recommend the house and the location. Everything was perfect!

Perfect getaway. Feels like you're in the remotest of locations, yet Malibu and Santa Monica are short drives away. Great hiking nearby, and awesome Topanga Beach surfers at dusk. Paul is a gracious host. Highly recommended.

Very clean and quiet. We are repeat guests. No cell service. No tv. Internet works well though. Fire pit outside is great/always stocked and ready to go. Great location for star gazing.

Paul's cottage is a great little retreat in Old Topanga. We booked last minute but he was very accommodating and communicated well at every step. Unfortunately we had a bad experience due to a plumbing problem that left us nauseous and had to leave in the middle of the night. We're pretty sensitive to mold and our allergies were acting up in the bedroom before hand. Paul was a great host though, and quick to make sure we didn't pay a dime on our stay.

Response from Paul:
We had a very unfortunate plumbing failure while Adrienne was staying with us. It led to a very unpleasant situation though Adrienne was extremely gracious and understanding in that it was totally out of our control. We refunded all of her costs, and got our plumber over here - pronto. In 4 years of hosting through Airbnb, this was the only incident we've had where something went wrong with our guest house. When things go sideways, you have to deal with the problem and be honest about it. We were thankful that Adrienne was understanding in this matter.

We had a magical, serene, and relaxing weekend at Paul and Ursula's guest home. The guest home was perfect and beautifully designed with the guests in mind. We really appreciated how sweet and nice Paul and Ursula were as hosts. They have two very angelic dogs that our dog made immediate friends with. We really could not ask for anything more. An amazing place and we will definitely be back to visit. Thank you!

This is a quiet, well-appointed cottage with gracious hosts and two friendly dogs. We found the place clean and fully stocked with everything we needed and even a chilled bottle of wine which was a welcome sight for two exhausted parents at the end of a long drive. We enjoyed toasting marshmallows over the fire and hearing the coyotes howl at night. I'd book this again in a heartbeat.

I'm a Canadian guy married to a Swiss gal, Ursula. We love the mountains and the beach: skiing, surfing, biking- anything outdoors in nature. Here at home in Topanga, we do lots of hiking and biking right out the front gate of our property. Ursi works in finance, I work in economics and data analytics. We're quiet though we definitely enjoy a good bottle of wine. We love living in Topanga because it's so peaceful to be living in a nice environment, so close to the beach, Santa Monica and the rest of LA.
