Calabasas vacation rentals

Calabasas: The gateway to L.A, Malibu, and beyond

Tucked away in the foothills of the San Fernando Valley, Calabasas is a charming small city situated 22 miles west of downtown Los Angeles, and within easy reach of the surf at Malibu. One of the highlights of booking a Calabasas vacation rental is that it's near to the Leonis Adobe in Old Town Calabasas, one of the oldest adobes in the county. The city is also fond of regular get-togethers and hosts a variety of fun festivals, including the Calabasas Fine Arts Festival in May, the Calabasas Film Festival in September, and the Pumpkin Festival in October.

Go celebrity-spotting in Calabasas

A 30-minute drive south of Calabasas is that hotbed of Hollywood glamor, Malibu Beach. Boasting 27 miles of wide sandy beaches, spectacular surf, and hip beach bars, Malibu is a haven for celebrity spotting. Thanks to its close proximity to Hollywood's studios, Malibu has more than its fair share of local icons. Book a centrally-located Calabasas vacation rental, and within the hour you could be sunning it on El Matador State Beach. Learn to surf, go horseback riding at sunset, or kick back with a peach daiquiri and watch the A-listers go by.

A taste of the wild west in Old Town Calabasas

Built in 1844, the Leonis Adobe is one of the oldest private residences in Los Angeles. It's also one of the most haunted, as the ghost of moneyed rancher, Miguel Leonis, allegedly haunts the halls. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, this living museum is a fascinating place to spend the day. Experience life as a rancher in the 1880s, meet Percheron horses, Texas longhorn cattle, and Black Spanish turkeys. Don't forget to take a peek into the Plummer House, a former Hollywood home which was moved to the grounds of Leonis Adobe in 1983.

A Calabasas summer is a blaze of glory

Los Angeles County and Calabasas both bask in a dry climate; think laser-blue skies and days of endless sunshine. In the summer, temperatures can soar into the high 80s, which does increase the chance of smog in the cities. But even in the winter, the temperatures are pretty mild, with the occasional spot of rain in January or February. The Los Angeles area is a year-round destination, so to avoid most of the crowds, book your Calabasas vacation rental outside of the busy summer season, and opt to come in spring or fall when it's less busy.

Take a walk on the wild side in Calabasas

If you want to see wildlife in its natural habitat (and we don't mean party people shopping on Rodeo Drive), head to the western fringes of Angelese National Forest. The Wildlife Waystation is a 160-acre animal sanctuary which rescues a wide variety of animals, including hyenas, foxes, leopards, and reptiles, not all indigenous to California. Book a Calabasas vacation rental close to the Santa Monica Mountains and explore 36 miles of hiking trails in Topanga State Park, most of which have magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean.
