About Linda Vallejo

I am practicing professional painter and sculptor as well as a teacher. I am a native Californian. My father is a retired colonel in the air force so I traveled a great deal as a child and young adult. I have lived all over the US and Europe, and traveled a great deal in Mexico and Canada. I live in Topanga with my husband of over thirty years, Ron. We are very proud of the beautiful home we built in Topanga Canyon.

Linda Vallejo purchased this house in 2001

Why Linda Vallejo chose Topanga

My husband, Ron and I built our home in Topanga Canyon fulfilling a life-long dream to live in the canyon's beauty and tranquility.

What makes this house unique

Our home is nestled in between Santa Monica and Malibu, two very exciting communities, and is only minutes from several beaches. The private patio faces directly south giving you a spectacular 180 degree view of Saddleback Ridge, the rising and setting sun and moon.

The two bedrooms are decorated with original works of art and are outfitted with exceptionally comfortable beds and linens. The master bedroom has a mini-frig, 39" HDTV with your choice of hundreds of films from our personal library. I personally serve coffee and tea to my guests each morning of their stay.

Stunning views and beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

The views are breathtaking, and the bedrooms have big windows so you can enjoy the view from inside. But who wants to stay inside? Use the adjacent deck (accessible by both bedrooms) and get outside! The house is extremely clean, and the bathroom is a dream bathroom (it includes a skylight above the shower so you feel like you are outside). Linda and Ron, who live in house, were very kind and accommodating. I highly recommend the property!

Outstanding, friendly, beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Linda's beautiful house, Linda made sure we felt at home! The house is beautiful and very tastefully decorated! Our rooms were absolutely immaculate, spacious, very comfortable and views from terrace over the mountains were absolutely breathtaking - so enjoyed EVERY MINUTE we spent there!!

Linda is a fantastic host – a very delightful and warm person! She was great at giving us local tips for places to get absolutely delicious breakfast and dinner or just to have fun and made us even reservations for some sightseeing! Always helpful and very tactful!

We loved, loved, loved our stay at Linda's house and highly recommend staying here.

Thank you Linda for giving us your warmth and friendship - making it one of the great memories!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Linda and Ron's Topanga Canyon house while in the area for a wedding. The accommodations were perfect for our short stay. The attention to details were evident and the hospitality very appreciated! We thoroughly enjoyed the quiet of the canyon and amazing views from the spacious deck. Morning coffee service was a delight! The mini-fridge came in handy as well. Would love to return!

Lovely stay in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Ron welcomed me into their lovely home in Topanga with open arms. The rooms are exactly as shown with an amazing view over the mountains. The bed was very comfortable. Overall, their space provided me a peaceful base in which to write for a few days. Linda and Ron were always available to brainstorm local attractions, places to eat, drink, and shop. I loved every moment of my stay! thank you!

A Relaxing Retreat in Topanga Canyon

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Ron's house is ideally located to take advantage of proximity to activities near Topanga Canyon, Malibu and Santa Monica. Linda's colorful and mystical artwork adorns the walls lending a lively feel to their beautifully updated house. The large terrace is shaded and you will enjoy the beautiful view of the surrounding landscape and the hills.

The two bedrooms are extremely comfortable with great beds and ceiling fans. One bedroom has a nice large work surface and the other bedroom has the TV where you can watch movies from their extensive collection. The bathroom is large and has special touches like the magnifying mirrors and the skylight in the shower.

Hosts Linda and Ron are really nice. Linda is extremely helpful with tips on where to eat and how to get places. you can tell they love living in this special enclave of California.

They have a pet, an Oriental Shorthair cat which is very cute, and we got some great pictures of him. He often greeted us at the door when we returned from hiking or visiting family.

Topanga Canyon Highway is twisty with some challenging switchbacks, if you have to go to the Valley as often as we did.

If you are going to the beach and Santa Monica-Venice area, this location is really convenient. On the day of our departure, our drive to the airport only took about 35 minutes going the coastal route.

If you are hikers, there are lots of trails nearby. We hiked Solstice Canyon in Malibu, Temescal Canyon in Pacific Palisades, and Red Rock trail very close to the house. Bring plenty of hydration, a hat and lots of sunscreen. The weather in the morning can be deceiving because it starts out cloudy and foggy but around 9:30 clears up and is relentlessly hot and sunny the rest of the day.

Breakfast out is somewhat limited. The Mimosa Cafe is closest, and you will find a local crowd there. If you have plans for early morning, it would be more convenient for you to find a Trader Joe's or a Whole Foods in nearby Calabasas or Woodland Hills, and get some food and store in the mini-fridge.

We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to visit again!

Comfy accommodations, gracious host, truly stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Ron's lovely home is beautifully decorated with Linda's wonderfully eclectic artwork. My wife and I and our two adult-teen sons stayed comfortably between the two bedrooms, a shared bath with double-vanity and an amazing walk-in shower. Both bedrooms open onto a shaded, elevated patio that affords stunning views of Topanga Canyon.

A warm and gracious host, Linda served tea/coffee each morning outside our bedroom door. And while Linda and Ron live in the house and sleep just down the hall, they were never intrusive. In all, we had a very pleasant stay.

Thank you, Linda and Ron, for sharing your home.
