Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Topanga - The Hideaway

Close to it all, yet worlds away... This hidden cottage is perched atop a glorious bluff on a 23 acre gated mountaintop estate overlooking the lush Santa Monica Mountains. Escape down the country lane into serenity on your own private bluff, yet be less than a mile to restaurants, entertainment, yoga and stores. Hike in 10,000 acre Topanga State park or take in the many nearby beaches. Shop the high-end boutiques of Malibu or Santa Monica, enjoy glorious sunsets and misty mornings or bike the hundreds of miles of trails of Topanga State Park straight from the front door. Horse riding facilities, theater, surf lessons, kite boarding, artist studios, seasonal festivals, Docent-led nature walks, miles of beaches all within 30 minutes of studios and Hollywood. Cottage has full kitchen, dishwasher and laundry. Watch the sunset under beautiful ancient Oaks and Pepper trees. Buy fresh produce, jams and baked goods at the weekly Farmers market. Fall in love with the Canyon lifestyle.

Like a bottle of very good whine

  • 4 of 5

A very pleasant house in a very special surrounding. Perfect, if you want to visit LA areas or Malibu, but benefit from calm and cool nights away from the crowd. Very friendly and easy handling by the owners. Narrow mountain street connects the property as well as the few neighbouring houses on the hill to the village down in the canyon. Easy to find. A broad area of level ground around the house, terrace-like, gives comfortable room for a hammock, arrangement of table and chairs, even for parking wherever you like. The house itself, inside, is generous with light, be it natural sunlight or artificial. Very tastefull choice of the interior design, practical and comfortable at the same time. You may end up staying there instead of leaving for another trip to the city.

Two minor remarks only. One concerning the last 120 feet (maybe) of unpaved country lane down to the house, where i was happy with the SUV i had rented. The second concerning the fact that no curtains exist to shut the view through the glass doors of the living room and one sleeping room during nights. But you can most probably rely on the fact that no one has ever occured in the garden who was not expected.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! There are metal shutters on all the outside windows and doors that can be shut to keep the light out! I am sorry that made us lose a star;)

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time at "The Hideaway." We loved all the seating areas in the yard and the furniture and accommodations were delightful. We would definitely return. Olga also gave us an amazing list of suggestions during our stay.

The Hideaway lives up to its name!

  • 5 of 5

A one of a kind location offering privacy and terrific views with ready access to nearby beaches, hiking and all that LA and the San Fernando Valley have to offer. Sam and Olga were wonderful hosts; incredibly gracious, kind and helpful during our stay. We will be back for sure!

relaxing family visit

  • 4 of 5

the property is bright and airy, with lots of room around the yard to play. Loved the beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, umbrella there for our use - helped since traveling from East Coast. Nice to relax in hammock and read in the shade, or in the chairs in the sun! Full size washer and dryer - helps with kids to pack less. Owners were great. Just remember you are in the canyons and there can be furry creatures to visit. We would recommend and schedule again as room to be close or quiet time while all in same house.

Great property for a family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two kids and the house and extra space to run around is perfect. Lots of places to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views.

Nice getaway

  • 5 of 5

After we got up the winding canyon road, we enjoyed this oasis of relaxation and calm during out trip to a wedding venue in Topanga Canyon. I only wish we had more time to spend. Great owners and nice place. There are no blinds (only sheer shades) for privacy from the front door area looking into a bedroom, which was the only drawback we found. Clean, well-appointed, and even had breakfast for us (oatmeal). Would definitely stay again.
