Every year (almost as if by design) our wedding anniversary follows my birthday. We try to do something special, but this year, with a particularly busy summer, I got way behind on planning and had to look for something at the last minute. My search turned up the Hideaway. What a find! Less than an hour from our home in Burbank, it really felt like we'd driven to northern California as far as feeling away from it all. Being able to bring our two dogs was icing on the cake. Although we never got to really meet Olga, the owner, face-to-face, she replied to emails almost instantly from our initial inquiry all the way to our departure. We had privacy, unobstructed views of the canyon, beautiful breezes and great restaurant and beach recommendations from Olga that were spot on. Our adult children and their dog joined us for the second night and as we all sat comfortably perched on the edge of the ravine taking in the exceptional view, we all agreed we need to come back - and for a longer stay. The house is beautifully decorated, clean and nicely appointed with everything you'd need in the kitchen, bath and laundry area. BTW, I am a bit biased as we own a vacation rental in Minnesota so we were taking lots of notes on how to make our property better for our guests... Thanks for sharing your very unique property Olga and Sam. We plan to return!
