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.

Sunset Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and had everything we needed. Our kiddos loved the hammock in the backyard, while my husband and I enjoyed the sunsets. We travel a lot to CA from Vegas for my daughter's volleyball tournaments, and usually stay in the chaos of hotels. This VRBO however was a PERFECT change of pace and very relaxing. We would recommend this property in a heart beat. The owners were great and answered every question we had quickly and gave great recommendations for local establishments. Very happy and plan to stay again!

Everything you need and then some. The views are stunning.

  • 5 of 5

Incredible property in a remarkably beautiful part of SoCal. Sam and Olga were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they responded to questions quickly and effectively. If you're looking for a little bit of L.A with a whole lot of peace and quiet then look no further. You will not be disapointed.

What a view

  • 5 of 5

Olga was a wonderful host always available and is happy to help and the place is beautiful! The bedrooms are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. The view is amazing and we loved sitting outside watching the marine layer come in in the early morning. The grounds needed a bit of work but that's to be expected in the canyon. There was a lime and lemon tree we used a few in our cooking which was so nice to have them that fresh. You'll be happy and relaxed when you leave so just do yourself a favor and book!

An oasis away from the maddening crowds

  • 5 of 5

My adult children accompanied me to a family wedding in LA. We had a very busy 3 days with the event. Our time at this blissfully serene spot allowed us to recharge for all the parties. The wildlife was amazing. We spotted a bobcat on our second day. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

A wonderful place for peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have enjoyed our stay more - if ever in the LA area again I wouldn't hesitate to use this property for a home base - We had planned to spend time at the beach but we just couldn't leave because it was so peaceful the view of topanga canyon is excellent I really hope to come back some day
