BEST PLACE EVER

  • 5 of 5

I travel a lot. As often as I can, I stay in places other than hotels. The Hideaway is the best place I've ever stayed. Great yard and view. Secluded but not inconvenient. Comfortable. Easy.

Quiet getaway in the mountains yet so close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This hideaway is nestled in Topanga Canyon which is about 10 minutes from Malibu and the beaches. There are so many birds (and bobcats!) that make you feel so far away and the little town is great! Very clean and has all sorts of items that you would need. Boogie boards, beach bag and toys, yoga mats, umbrella and games and a well stocked kitchen. The bathroom is outfitted with plenty of towels and soap and they even have aloe for after the beach! There is a washer and dryer which made life so much better! The cottage has several antiques which make it so charming. There is also a pepper tree out back that will take your breath away...I would stay here again and again. We got to meet one of the dogs who made herself at home with us. Such a sweet heart and well-mannered.

The one negative are the spiders. I would recommend getting some glue boards to ease the tenants minds a bit.

Sunset Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and had everything we needed. Our kiddos loved the hammock in the backyard, while my husband and I enjoyed the sunsets. We travel a lot to CA from Vegas for my daughter's volleyball tournaments, and usually stay in the chaos of hotels. This VRBO however was a PERFECT change of pace and very relaxing. We would recommend this property in a heart beat. The owners were great and answered every question we had quickly and gave great recommendations for local establishments. Very happy and plan to stay again!

Everything you need and then some. The views are stunning.

  • 5 of 5

Incredible property in a remarkably beautiful part of SoCal. Sam and Olga were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble and they responded to questions quickly and effectively. If you're looking for a little bit of L.A with a whole lot of peace and quiet then look no further. You will not be disapointed.

What a view

  • 5 of 5

Olga was a wonderful host always available and is happy to help and the place is beautiful! The bedrooms are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. The view is amazing and we loved sitting outside watching the marine layer come in in the early morning. The grounds needed a bit of work but that's to be expected in the canyon. There was a lime and lemon tree we used a few in our cooking which was so nice to have them that fresh. You'll be happy and relaxed when you leave so just do yourself a favor and book!

An oasis away from the maddening crowds

  • 5 of 5

My adult children accompanied me to a family wedding in LA. We had a very busy 3 days with the event. Our time at this blissfully serene spot allowed us to recharge for all the parties. The wildlife was amazing. We spotted a bobcat on our second day. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
