UNIQUE 2 BEDROOM GEM SPARKLING IN SPRAWLING CANYONS, 8 MINUTES TO THE BEACH
- english, french, spanish
Born and raised in France, I am a linguist, love all languages and cultures. I practice yoga, hike, dance, write. I love the homes I have created for myself, enjoy maintaining them and am constantly beautifying them for myself and all who visit. The house is private on a two lot property. I live on the second lot beyond the wooden fence surrounding the area offered for vacation occupancy, and am quick to respond if needed. As my guests, you might enjoy special details within my homes and property. It is a joy to share the beautiful surrounding I live in and lifestyle they afford. My last big voyage was a two month journey through Nepal, India and Sri Lanka with my youngest daughter living in Australia, an exotic mother-daughter reunion.) Now planning a family reunion in my natal south of France with my two children and two grandsons. Since I started hosting , I have enjoyed guests from various States and countries; the world coming to me in this way, and being part of Los Angeles where all cultures are represented, I feel I don't need to travel that much anymore. Hosting is a creative expression for me, spanning the fields of service, interpersonal relations, cultural exchange. I have enjoyed visitors from China, Sweden, Spain, France, Germany, England, Switzerland, and the United States.
Isabelle purchased this House in 2012
Why Isabelle chose Fernwood
This is a unique property in that it is small yet well designed, with many different environments, both inside and outside. It is centrally located and easily accessible - no long winding canyon roads to contend with - completely surrounded by nature, and in the climate perfect part of the canyon. The house is modern with loads of vintage charm. It has the best of all worlds: canyon setting, yet close to the ocean; secluded, yet within minutes to civilization. It invites a healthy lifestyle in an eclectic community. The house is simple, comfortable, tastefully designed, and well-cared for.
What makes this House unique
When you walk through the gate, you are in a world of its own. There is a lovely fence all around providing privacy. The gazebo with swinging couch and chairs, growing orchard, herb and organic vegetable garden expand your living experience. The main room features a home theater with surround sound, state of the art receiver, DVD player and projector with HDMI technology to plug your laptop, as well as business amenities/ workspace when opening the armoire door. Temperate climate with a gentle sea breeze in the summer. Quality wind chimes offer an ever changing rendition of climatic conditions, sometimes soothing, sometimes passionate. They can be tamed during the Santa Ana winds.

We had a great stay in Topanga Canyon. Isabella was so kind and it was a fun family trip.
The property is beautiful, clean and Isabelle was a gracious hostess. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home and the special touches were greatly appreciated. The only challenge was parking, but it is well worth it for the experience.
Gorgeous little property in Topanga Canyon. Great porch, and living room area! Love the location and home.
Great Mountain Escape
Isabelle's place was amazing! A beautiful home in the mountains of Topanga. A short drive to Malibu and surrounding shops and restaurants. Isabelle was also easy to communicate with and greeted us in person, which was very nice. Highly recommended place to stay!
