Birthday/Anniversary Getaway...

  • 5 of 5
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!

Very Relaxing. Beautiful views.

The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that we have a large family and it only has 1 bathroom. The property is fantastic. Olga is accomodating and responsive. We will definitely go back and use the hideaway

The Hideaway for a college graduation visit

  • 5 of 5
I actually reserved this home 5 months prior to arrival, after the recommendation from a co-worker that we should try VRBO. We were travelling to California to attend our son’s graduation from Pepperdine. My husband and I have stressful vocations, and I welcomed the idea of staying in a location which might be away from traffic and relaxing, yet within close proximity to Pepperdine. This home exceeded all of my expectations. The distance from the college was exactly as described to me by Olga; very close, a scenic drive, and light traffic. We also traveled into other common popular tourist destinations in LA, and the routes were very direct. The parking at the Hideaway is ample and easy, and the beauty of the property is surreal. The yard accompanying the home is very large. The views are breathtaking by themselves, but area accompanying the Hideaway is beautifully landscaped, with outdoor tables, chairs a bench arranged to enjoy the views at every angle. And it was indeed very peaceful, which is exactly what we needed. The owners of the home certainly let us know that they were accessible if anything was needed or if we had any questions, but otherwise left us alone to enjoy the solitude of the property. Olga had provided information about parks and restaurants in the area via e-mail prior to arrival, and they were very accurate and helpful. The home itself is much larger than portrayed, and spotless with very modern accommodations. The Topanga Canyon area is charming, and Malibu and the ocean are literally just down the street . The Hideaway felt private and remote, yet is actually very centrally located.
I heard many other families talking abou the accommodations they had secured to attend their child’s Pepperdine graduation, and many individuals sounded very stressed. I felt so lucky to have found the Hideaway. There is a peacefulness that accompanies it which couldn't be obtained at a hotel. Incidentally, while most people also of course consider the expense of accommodations while travelling, The Hideaway was more economical than hotels I had considered earlier, and so much more unique. A lovely property and an experience which will only add to the joy of seeing one’s child graduate from college. After living in Malibu for 4 years and then seeing the property, my son actually requested to just spend an evening relaxing there. I have a great picture of him, sleeping in a hammock in the home's backyard. Priceless.

.We had a wonderful stay at the Hideaway. The house was very comfy and had everything that we needed. .The views were stunning. We had privacy without feeling isolated. I chose the location for convenience to the places we had in mind to visit and it was perfect. Olga and Sam are gracious hosts and knowledgeable about the area and events.

Reluctant Admission of Enthusiasm

  • 5 of 5
This place is superb. My only concern is that by writing such a positive review too many people will book the place in the future and make it more difficult for me to come back for a return visit.

Awesome in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5
This property was amazing. Both the setting of the home and the home itself were far beyond what we were expecting. Everything in the house was of high quality, from the furniture to the bedding to the dishes to the bath towels. Very comfy beds and linens. Lots of windows and light in this house . . . and so very clean. We really loved the house--it was so comfortable, clean, and roomy. Some great things about the home that are not shown in the photos are the very spacious and bright foyer area, very high ceilings throughout, tons of closet space, large walk-in shower, and huge capacity washer/dryer. The bedrooms were also very big (one with sliding glass door leading to patio!). The spacious yard area was very private and very pretty--lots of flowers and plants and trees . . . and many different seating areas in which to sit and stare at the incredible canyon views. Our teen boys loved exploring the trails on the property. If you are lucky, Olga will be available to take you on a hike into nearby Topanga State Park! Go if you can--the views are insanely beautiful, and Olga is an energetic, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic tour guide. We very highly recommend the Hideaway Cottage!!!
