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.

Excellent location and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not lie. This is a premier place to stay in the middle of Topanga Canyon. We spent four days over Thanksgiving. Kitchen had everything we needed. It's comfortable inside and out, with a number of charming places close to the house or near the edge of the cliff to look at the valley. I was delighted with this place. The owners are friendly and helpful. It's also very close to the Topanga Park and its many hiking trails. If you want close access to mountains and ocean and Santa Monica/Malibu, this is the place!

A lovely property with incredible views and several outdoor sitting areas to enjoy them in

  • 5 of 5

Owners very responsive. An awesome place to relax and enjoy the surrounding beauty. Worth navigating the windy narrow road leading to it. Visits from sweet, friendly dogs if you wish! Really enjoyed our breakfast at the nearby Topanga Table, some interesting shopping nearby as well as beaches. But, such a nice place- we hated to leave!

A very nice, comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in The Hideaway. It was a great central location for us. Great views and close to some nice restaurants. Very well appointed place. We enjoyed the visits from Smoky. She would come to check us out every day. Since we had to leave our pups at home, she was our surrogate pet.

We would definitely stay there again.

We absolutely loved this house. Some good hiking in the canyon, great views to enjoy from the house as well as the winding roads. I would have liked to have stayed longer and enjoy it. I hope to be back!!
