We recently stayed in both cottages on this property. Topanga Canyon is a quaint little hideaway community in between Malibu and Calabasas. It has unique shops and restaurants among beautiful tree filled hills with plenty of hiking trails. We enjoyed both although our favorite was the one with the hot tub! Both cottages are clean, well decorated and fully equipped. The animals on the property - Buffalo the dog and Salem the black cat were an added treat for our 2 year old. Shari lined the stairs nightly with candles which was a nice touch! Shari and Bert were great hosts! Beaches in Malibu are a short drive away, as is Santa Monica. We will definitely stay here again as you get a relaxing experience that doesn't feel like you are in the midst of a huge city with convenient access to city attractions. Thanks for a great stay!
