Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Pastoral loveliness. Amazing canyon views constantly in flux from moving sun, clouds or morning fog. Peaches and oranges falling from trees. Scents of flowers, flowing grasses, massive pepper trees. Difficult to decide where to lounge and which view to take in. "Hideaway" could not be more accurate. Topanga is a cool little town, and right down the canyon road are the Malibu beaches. Santa Monica and L.A. are mere minutes away. The best of all worlds. Highly recommended if you value mountains and seclusion.

Lovely cottage, serene location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was flawless. The cottage is roomy, clean, and cosy. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms cool at night, and there's plenty of space around to enjoy the canyon views, eat outside, or just relax with a book (of which there's a good selection in the house ion case you forget to bring your own). Olga was a nice host, and she came to our aid when we arrived late and without groceries. We were sorry to have to leave.

Such a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We’re in LA often visiting our son and went for something different this time. What a great little house! And it’s not really that little...great high ceilings and totally fits 4 people very comfortably. Has everything you need and views to die for. Owners Olga and Sam are very cool and the occasional visits from their friendly pups are a bonus:) This place is soooo incredibly comfortable, peaceful and serene!!! Topanga is a hidden gem and so happy we stayed here!

Amazing views and great cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hideaway Cottage. The views from the property of the Topanga hills are stunning and there are many great places to enjoy those views in the outdoor areas of the property. The cottage itself is very nice, clean and comfortable. We met Olga who was very gracious and responded to our questions quickly and completely. Loved Olga's dogs who greeted us when we arrived; Smokey was a daily visitor which we loved. Great spot; we would definitely book again.

Excellent location and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not lie. This is a premier place to stay in the middle of Topanga Canyon. We spent four days over Thanksgiving. Kitchen had everything we needed. It's comfortable inside and out, with a number of charming places close to the house or near the edge of the cliff to look at the valley. I was delighted with this place. The owners are friendly and helpful. It's also very close to the Topanga Park and its many hiking trails. If you want close access to mountains and ocean and Santa Monica/Malibu, this is the place!
