Amazing Stay at The Hideaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a girlfriend's weekend at The Hideaway and absolutely LOVED it! The property was super serene with wonderful views of Topanga Canyon. It's the perfect getaway for rest and relaxation. We enjoyed cooking dinner in the kitchen which had floor to ceiling windows overlooking the yard. We didn't take advantage of the many hiking trails walkable from the house, but wish we would have! We enjoyed waking up and having coffee outside and had fun putzing around Topanga's shops just 5 minutes down from the canyon. We also enjoyed a wonderful dinner out at the Malibu Farm Pier off the PCH and spent an afternoon drinking wine at Malibu Family Wines. In addition, prior to our arrival, Olga sent us a list of recommended restaurants, things to do, activities, etc. She was a great host and easily available by phone if we had any questions. I definitely recommend staying at The Hideaway!!

Excellent secluded location with beautiful mountain views of Topanga

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience here. Came with another couple to the Hideaway and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The host provided several suggestions for fun activities and the house was fully equipped for anytime we wanted to cook for ourselves. I would highly recommend staying here if you would like a nice relaxing place to hang near excellent areas of Topanga/Malibu.

Great House in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week at "The Hideaway" in February. The house is just outside LA with magnificent views of Topanga Canyon. The location cannot be beat - you can easily get to LA via the 101 or the PCH, your choice of beaches and parks is right down the road, you can hike into Topanga State Park right from the house, OR you can stay put and enjoy the magnificent view right from the yard. The "town" of Topanga is a funky throwback good for basics and unique shopping.

The house is clean and well appointed, including all the little things you need like spices and laundry detergent. The bedrooms are separated by a hallway, so there is privacy among guests. There are plenty of places to relax on the property, lovely landscaping, including fruit trees, and the occasional visit of a friendly dog Smokey, who is great with kids. The owners are respectful of privacy but are very accommodating and helpful should you need advice and travel tips.

We will be sure to stay again at "The Hideaway" the next time we're in town.

Unique Bungalow with everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

Great property in the heart of Topanga Canyon. Very well equipped with kitchen, laundry, and wi-fi, and a variety of television options (we didn't use any). Very responsive and helpful owners. Unless we couldn't locate them, the kitchen could use a toaster and coffee filters. Need to replace towel rack in the bathroom. Other than these minors issues, I highly recommend this property and its current owners.
