It is a beautiful setting, very peaceful and tranquil. As close to nature as you would want to be yet just a short drive to the beaches or hiking trails. If I want to take in the city it is never far away!
The best sleep you'll ever have! Great star-gazing. Lots of entertaining wildlife! The air is cleaner and life is more enjoyable....
Thank you, Andrea!
We are sooo enjoying our stay at your charming lodge...
Canyon View Lodge is wonderful! Its many appealing aspects--location, setting, house, and lovely hosts--add up to a very special place.
LOCATION: Its location in Topanga Canyon is ideal for several reasons. Being mid-way between PCH and Woodland Hills allows for easy access to the beach, Malibu, and LA, as well as shopping in WH. Near the top of one side of the Canyon, it offers an amazing view of the far ridge. It's also located at the end of two short (vs very long) steep roads.
SETTING: Its tiered garden behind the guesthouse is replete with lavender and rosemary. Lanterns hung in the overarching live oak trees enhance this magical setting at night. With its potted palms and plants, the large terrace below/in front of the guesthouse looks like it could be in the Mediterranean. Twinkle lights entwined along its railing make for a most welcoming effect.
GUESTHOUSE: The charming two-story guesthouse is cozy, compact, and well designed. The knotty pine interior is sympatico with its natural setting. The many windows imbue the house with a great sense of light. Andrea and Peter's design capabilities are impressive. For example, as a desk sits in its own alcove, it doesn't intrude on the living room area. Though tiny, the kitchen is well equipped and organized.
HOSTS: Andrea and Peter were delightful. They respected my privacy, and were always willing to be helpful and accommodating. I thoroughly enjoyed my two month stay there. I can't wait to return!
Andrea and Peter made us (my husband, our 11 year old daughter, and myself) feel very welcome. Thanks for the use of your boogie boards! We stayed for nearly a week and loved every minute of it. I thoroughly enjoyed looking over the canyon every morning before our daily adventures. We were close to several beaches (Santa Monica Pier, Will Rogers and Zuma Beach) Andrea and Peter told us about hiking at Topanga Canyon State Park and Red Rock Park, and we definitely took advantage of such. It was great to have a lovely, rustic, homey place to retire to in the evenings. I would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends. The only downside would be that the hills (you are in in a canyon) and the steps may make it difficult for someone with a physical disability.
Myself and my husband stayed for just under 2 weeks and had a wonderful and relaxing time. The property is exactly as described and we were very comfortable here. The view is fantastic and the property is only minutes from the ocean (south) and the main city of Woodland Hills (north). We enjoyed motorbiking in the canyons (the snake/rockstore) during the daytime and then going to Woodland Hills for an evening coffee. Thanks again for sharing your gorgeous property with us, Andrea and Peter - we plan on making a return trip next year!!
We enjoyed this unique property for one month. The view of the Santa Monica mountains from the property is spectacular, walking along the flower paths, and enjoying a variety of birds while lounging on one of the many scenic patios on this lovely property. The location was ideal for us to explore all that Topanga Canyon has to offer. Hiking at Topanga State Park, the drive through the canyon to either Woodland Hills or the PCH to enjoy the ocean and Malibu. We felt like we were part of Andrea and Peter's family. A bottle of champagne to celebrate our 45th anniversary, use of their binoculars and many reference books for exploring Topanga Canyon, and homemade banana nut bread. A typical morning for us would be lounging on one of the many patios with our coffee and tea. Peter and Andrea's two adorable dogs Marley and Spike would stop by to greet us and check to see if we happened to have a treat for them. We did! One of our favorite daily routines became visiting with Andrea and Peter either in the morning as we started out our journey for the day and received a wealth of information on what area we decided to visit; or at the end of the day to talk with Peter and Andrea on the progress they had made that day on their ongoing beautification projects at their beautiful property. Thank you Andrea and Peter, Marley and Spike for sharing your beautiful property with us and helping us to feel so welcome and part of your family.
We had a wonderful time here. Highly recommended to all who what to get a way from the fast pace of the city. The owners are a gem! The rental was fully equipped with all that we needed. The beach is just minutes away, we were able to catch a couple of sunsets, GORGEOUS!
Thank you for the opportunity to stay on your property.
WE LOVED IT!
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We are so happy we discovered both your lovely cottage and Topanga. The cottage was just as pictured- so comfortable and welcoming. Perfect location close to Malibu but seemingly a million miles away in feeling. Sorry, we never really got a chance to meet but our Pepperdine orientation schedule kept us busy from early AM til late each day. It was such a treat to come back to our own retreat each night for a relaxing drink, candlelight and conversation. The bed was super comfortable, breeze great, and whatever was blooming outside the window was heavenly. We will be back for future visits and can't wait to explore more of the area. We did have a drink at Froggy's- great beer selection. Next visit we plan on dinner at the Inn of the Seventh Ray.
