Topanga Apartment Rental Photos and Description

TOPANGA - the place of the people - is an amazing place to be in this world. This place was muse to many famous artists and musician and writers ( some still living here ). Elysium fields and Rodeo grounds were in a less than a 3 mile radius from here.

This is our guesthouse. It has amazing views and is in a serene & quite environment, close to Topanga State Park which is in Los Angeles. Complete nature experience in Los Angeles.Just 20 min from Santa Monica, 20 -30 minutes to the Studios in the Valley.

You can hike, mountain bike, do horseback riding or sit at a outside fire in the evening. The landscape is amazing and you will not believe that this is part of Los Angeles. We drive to work every day to Santa Monica, driving along the beaches on the PCH the famous Pacific Coast Highway passing the ocean, seeing dolphins & seals and fish hunting pelicans.

We built this guesthouse to give our friends and family a home a way from home while visiting us. You are in nature as soon as you step out of your door.

Space:

The guesthouse is like a Studio apartment (with no joining walls )and accommodates 2 comfortably.It was built in 2009 in is modern style.The guesthouse is located on the lower level of our property and has its one entrance from the driveway via a ' grand staircase' ( 10 wide long steps) to the lower yard. It is partly located under the end of on of our decks in the main house. It is one room with a huge California King bed ( Organic futon & bedding), it has a kitchenette with refridgerator, 4 burner stove top, Microwave with integrated oven. Table and chairs inside and outside. The bathroom is small but a has a beautiful pebble shower with stones from the beach. There is lots of outdoors space as well.It is very private. If you travel with kids we could provide a baby-crib or a roll away.

(The times are driving times - we are in LA - forget the walking other than in nature. Cars are required in Los Angeles :)

The town itself has plenty of picturesque areas and is popular for weekend tourists. We have a few beautiful restaurants including the famous INN of the Seventh Ray, a french Bistro, a nice Mexican place,Rocco's Italian, Froggie's a bohemian american/ asian quinine as well as 2 wonderful coffee places.

Topanga is home to the Theatricum Botanicum (Will Gear) an open air Shakespeare Theatre with world class perfomance which attracts visitors from all over Los Angeles.

Beaches:

There are beaches all along the PCH. When you drive down the hill you are right at Topanga State Beach, a popular Surf Spot with some beach restaurants perfect after a long day in the sun.

A little bit up the PCH you come to famous Malibu. Go to the amazing beaches, walk by the Celebrity Villas on the beach, surf, go shopping & spy out for some of those people you know from the movies, have a massage....endless possibilities.

MEMORABLE

  • 5 of 5
I stayed for a month on my own. The Farkas are very welcoming and will make sure you have everything you need. The studio is clean and the landscape is absolutely fantastic! It's in the middle of the mountains, but a few miles from the beaches, the valley and the LA action. Plenty of mountain trails all around the area. The best of everything... I fell in love with Topanga.

A WORLD AWAY IN TOPANGA CANYON

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I can not say enough about our stay in Topanga Canyon. The view was amazing every morning when we had our coffee in bed or on the bistro set outside our glass doors. To be able to hike in the state park just minutes from this home was a huge plus. Our daughter joined us for a few days at the end of our 10 days and the extra bed prepared for her was so inviting and comfortable. Thank you, thank you for a quite, beautiful and peaceful stay. We will definitely be back for this fabulous escape from our busy schedules!

BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL PLACE TO UNWIND

  • 4 of 5
What a beautiful and peaceful place to get away to. I just live in Orange County, but I felt a world away here. The views are amazing, it's quiet, and the pool was very relaxing. I would highly recommend this property. The owners were very welcoming and I hardly even knew they were there.

WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE !!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my wife and 17 month old daughter stayed in this great guest house. And we had the best time. Tanya & Craig are perfect hosts - their guesthouse is wonderfully designed. It oozes of great taste and the studio is a pleasant to live and work in.
THE VIEW !! - is something you have to see to believe it. This could be mountains in Italy. Spain. France. but still you are close to everything that L.A, Santa Monica, Malibu & Venice has to offer.

We can only recommend this place from the bottom of our hearts !!

Best
