Topanga vacation rentals

Free your mind in LA's boho-chic enclave

Tucked away in the mountains of scenic Topanga Canyon between Santa Monica and Malibu, this super-chill western LA suburb will take you back to a simpler time when tie dye and patchouli ruled the scene. Remnants of its hippie days coexist with organic shops, spiritual centers, cozy cafes, and yoga studios, making for a distinctly laid-back bohemian vibe. Surrounded by mountains and natural parks, there's no shortage of ways to get some exercise and a fresh air fix. A Topanga vacation rental is a dream come true for artistic types and anyone looking to disconnect from the stress of daily life.

Make love, not war in carefree, eccentric Topanga

You could spend a day just wandering through Topanga's quirky hippie shops, farmers markets, and trendy cafes and restaurants – you might even spot a celebrity or two. There are also plenty of festivals going on throughout the year. The hiking trails in the surrounding mountains offer spectacular views. If you're craving some beach time, head to the coast and check out Malibu, Will Rogers State Beach, or Venice Beach, all a short drive away. And speaking of driving, Topanga is just off the iconic Pacific Coast Highway, a bucket-list item for road trippers around the globe.

Classic California, from boardwalks to bodybuilders

If you can tear yourself away from the relaxing hippie lifestyle, a Topanga vacation rental puts you near some of Southern California's most famous beaches. For surfing, dolphin watching, and celebrity spotting, head to hip Malibu Pier. If you're more of a free spirit, try Venice Beach, where you'll find street performers, funky shops, and a world-famous beachfront bodybuilding gym. Santa Monica Pier offers a fun day of amusement park rides and carnival games. Art lovers are in luck, as both outposts of the J. Paul Getty Museum are nearby.

California dreaming on such a winter's day

For anyone who hates the brutally cold winters, a Topanga vacation rental might just be perfection. You'll almost never even come close to seeing snow or freezing temperatures. Overnight temps can drop into the 50s in the coldest months of November to January, so do bring a jacket. Otherwise you're in for that famous California warmth, with the mercury in the 80s from May to August, and hovering near 90 in June and July. Don't be surprised if you sometimes see those mystic Pacific fogs roll through the canyon.

The canyon is absolutely grand, and so is the sea

Nestled deep in Topanga Canyon in the Santa Monica Mountains, the town is surrounded by Topanga State Park, the largest urban wilderness area in the country. Topanga Canyon Drive winds its way through steep rock walls, outcroppings, and hills covered in chaparral scrub bushes. There are plenty of trails for exploring the plant life and encountering some friendly wildlife. Along the coast, the Pacific Coast highway works its way through alternating sandy beaches and rocky coastlines where you can catch some amazing sunrises and sunsets over the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean.
