Great little ranch

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at the ranch though there are a couple of quirks. No cell service being one and the "driveway" is an adventure in itself. The house is clean, spacious and you can't beat the views. CJ is a welcoming host and I'd stay there again if I get the chance.

Owner's Response: On most levels the lack of cell service is part of the attraction and the "get away". However if you need cell and don't want to walk a few steps to get it wifi calling works pretty much everywhere in and around the structures, and most phones are equipped these days. Thanks for being Super clean guests!

Sad to Leave

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this rental. I most definitely felt at peace and safe being at the ranch. The house was spectacular, with not one thing more you could possibly need or want, except to maybe move in permanently. From comfort to hospitality, this place rocks all the way! And CJ, the owner, was helpful and was always there if we needed anything. Justice was awesome, he was the extremely well-mannered 8 year old in which we really enjoyed his company. The dogs, Sapho and Cooper, the sweetest dogs ever, if you’re an animal, beware…you will get attached! The pool was sensational with its crystal blue pristine water, it kept my kids busy for a very long time. It’s hard to believe that just a few minutes away up a driveway you can find a peaceful harmonious place. It’s just wonderful and words cannot describe the incredible views you can see miles on end. No doubt this rental is a win win all the way. Each year I rent a place in the Los Angeles area for one month and by far this was genuinely the very very best!!! Will be back for sure.

We'll be coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Ranch in Topanga Canyon! The house was very comfortable and was able to accommodate three adults and three kids comfortably. The kitchen is well stocked and the pool was pitch perfect.

The hosts were super friendly and their 8 year old son was such a gracious host. He kept my boy entertained for hours! The dogs were so sweet, we were ready to take them home!

The ranch is great for people who want to just relax and escape from the craziness of L.A. But it's close enough to civilization that you're not that isolated. Just make sure you get there before dark. Mulholland Drive ends there, and it becomes a dirt road. It can be hard to navigate for the first time at night... but the view is spectacular!

Owner's Response: Great guests, enjoyable folks. Lucky to have them and would have them back anytime! Zero drama and we consider this a "DFZ" (drama free zone) so that is critical! Thanks guys!

Winderful place, great people

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the most different (in a very good way) experience my family had in our many different vacation rentals. The location was perfect to serve as a base to visit many of the famous spots around. But my family just hung around the house the entire stay.

You will not find a better host than CJ and Christina. They looked after us as if they've known us for years. Indeed, during our stay, they had gatherings with different people, and they were all so kind and interesting.

My son was in tears on the way home because he had such a great time with CJ's son.

If you get a chance, don't hesitate, book the place and get yourself a trip you will not forget(again, in a very good way).

Thanks again CJ and Christina!

Breath taking views and wonderful kind, welcoming owners

  • 5 of 5

Arrived the day after Christmas and stayed until the 2nd January. Our family could not have asked for more for our visit from the U.K. The scenery was true California in all of its beauty and the welcome and generosity from the owners was more than any family could wish for. Book a stay here and you won't be disappointed, the home has all mod cons and is an absolute pleasure. The surroundings are truly breathtaking and the host family welcome you into their social life. Our son was poorly during part of our stay and their support and concern for him was truly touching and heartfelt. We will definitely be returning to this holiday rental. Thanks again to our wonderful hosts.
