Topanga apartment description

TOPANGA - the place of the people - is an amazing place to be in this world. This place was muse to many famous artists and musician and writers ( some still living here ). Elysium fields and Rodeo grounds were in a less than a 3 mile radius from here.

Little Bohemian town , nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains.
Great Vacation Spot, romantic retreat, Weekend getaway or inspiring writers & artist Studio ( long term rates available).

This is our guesthouse. It has amazing views and is in a serene & quite environment, close to Topanga State Park which is in Los Angeles. Complete nature experience in Los Angeles.Just 20 min from Santa Monica, 20 -30 minutes to the Studios in the Valley.

You can hike, mountain bike, do horseback riding or sit at a outside fire in the evening. The landscape is amazing and you will not believe that this is part of Los Angeles. We drive to work every day to Santa Monica, driving along the beaches on the PCH the famous Pacific Coast Highway passing the ocean, seeing dolphins & seals and fish hunting pelicans.

We built this guesthouse to give our friends and family a home a way from home while visiting us. You are in nature as soon as you step out of your door.

The guesthouse is like a Studio apartment (with no joining walls )and accommodates 2 comfortably.It was built in 2009 in is modern style.The guesthouse is located on the lower level of our property and has its one entrance from the driveway via a ' grand staircase' ( 10 wide long steps) to the lower yard. It is partly located under the end of on of our decks in the main house. It is one room with a huge California King bed ( Organic futon & bedding), it has a kitchenette with refridgerator, 4 burner stove top, Microwave with integrated oven. Table and chairs inside and outside. The bathroom is small but a has a beautiful pebble shower with stones from the beach. There is lots of outdoors space as well.It is very private. If you travel with kids we could provide a baby-crib or a roll away.
Pets are ok as long as they are kids friendly.We do have a black Labrador in the main house.

There is a kids playground & jungle gym 1 level down.

The guest house has a charcoal BBQ grill outside.

Just 3.5 miles from the ocean. 20 minutes to Santa Monica. 20 min to Malibu, 20 - 30 min to the Studios.
(The times are driving times - we are in LA - forget the walking other than in nature. Cars are required in Los Angeles :)
The town itself has plenty of picturesque areas and is popular for weekend tourists. We have a few beautiful restaurants including the famous INN of the Seventh Ray, a french Bistro, a nice Mexican place,Rocco's Italian, Froggie's a bohemian american/ asian quinine as well as 2 wonderful coffee places.
Topanga is home to the Theatricum Botanicum (Will Gear) an open air Shakespeare Theatre with world class perfomance which attracts visitors from all over Los Angeles.
There is a Hippy Spirit about Topanga. In the 60 & 70 ties this was home to Elysium fields and famous Rodeo Grounds. Bohemian Lifestyle, Artist, Musicians.

There are plenty of shopping opportunities in Santa Monica, 3 rd street promenade, the Valley ( remember the show Valleygirls?), Hollywood, famous Melrose.

There are beaches all along the PCH. When you drive down the hill you are right at Topanga State Beach, a popular Surf Spot with some beach restaurants perfect after a long day in the sun.
A little bit up the PCH you come to famous Malibu. Go to the amazing beaches, walk by the Celebrity Villas on the beach, surf, go shopping & spy out for some of those people you know from the movies, have a massage....endless possibilities.
