BEST PLACE EVER

  • 5 of 5

I travel a lot. As often as I can, I stay in places other than hotels. The Hideaway is the best place I've ever stayed. Great yard and view. Secluded but not inconvenient. Comfortable. Easy.

A lovely property with incredible views and several outdoor sitting areas to enjoy them in

  • 5 of 5

Owners very responsive. An awesome place to relax and enjoy the surrounding beauty. Worth navigating the windy narrow road leading to it. Visits from sweet, friendly dogs if you wish! Really enjoyed our breakfast at the nearby Topanga Table, some interesting shopping nearby as well as beaches. But, such a nice place- we hated to leave!

A very nice, comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in The Hideaway. It was a great central location for us. Great views and close to some nice restaurants. Very well appointed place. We enjoyed the visits from Smoky. She would come to check us out every day. Since we had to leave our pups at home, she was our surrogate pet.

We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful property with wonderful host and spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. Some good hiking in the canyon, great views to enjoy from the house as well as the winding roads. I would have liked to have stayed longer and enjoy it. I hope to be back!!

Quiet getaway in the mountains yet so close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This hideaway is nestled in Topanga Canyon which is about 10 minutes from Malibu and the beaches. There are so many birds (and bobcats!) that make you feel so far away and the little town is great! Very clean and has all sorts of items that you would need. Boogie boards, beach bag and toys, yoga mats, umbrella and games and a well stocked kitchen. The bathroom is outfitted with plenty of towels and soap and they even have aloe for after the beach! There is a washer and dryer which made life so much better! The cottage has several antiques which make it so charming. There is also a pepper tree out back that will take your breath away...I would stay here again and again. We got to meet one of the dogs who made herself at home with us. Such a sweet heart and well-mannered.

The one negative are the spiders. I would recommend getting some glue boards to ease the tenants minds a bit.
