Large salt water pool is not heated, but is refreshing and usually warm enough to swim in as Topanga is hot most of the year.

The home is not the most suitable for young children, antiques and collectibles on display.

If you intend on using the property for anything other then a quiet gathering for 1-8 guests this needs to be discussed before booking. Again, no larger gatherings or parties allowed, no exceptions.

Photoshoots and filming: The house is available for shoots but this is NOT included in the vacation rental fee. Photo/video shoots have a location fee and a different price structure and may require permitting/insurance, and a representative on site.

Ridiculously beautiful house, beautiful location

We had a wonderful time in that sanctuary in the hills. Well-managed, perfectly maintained. The grounds and views are amazing. Will definitely return.

Beautiful Respite from Busy LA

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this unique and beautiful home in gorgeous Topanga Canyon. It was wonderful to return to a spacious home and property each evening after dealing with busy LA. There was plenty of space for our three children to spread out, a lovely property to explore, and a well-equipped kitchen that allowed us to really feel like we had a home away from home.
