Guestbook comments from the owner


The best part of this wonderful Treehouse Fantasy... Well the obvious, the chirping frogs in the Moonlight while soaking in the jacuzzi, the Comfort of Soft music, Candle lit terraced stairs - Solitude - and of course meeting you..

Your manner is one of Grace and Charm but always professional. I now look forward to calling you my Friend.

Peace in the New Year.

Charming, comfortable, clean and quiet. It was perfect for ourselves and our pup. Excellent facilities. Shari had thought of everything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. It is a great location for exploring the region. Shari is a lovely, friendly and considerate host.

Absolutely Stunning!!! The cottage reminded us of Great Expectations- SO MAGICAL!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is so magical and the bed is VERY COMFORTABLE!!! We were not around a lot of the time because we were here to spend time visiting family, but when we were, we really enjoyed our time in the hot tub and exploring the sprawling property. We had everything we needed and really loved our stay. Also, Shari is by far the sweetest and most considerate, very thorough and thoughtful Host I have ever had, SO NICE! We would definitely come back!

Charming little place

  • 4 of 5

Nice quiet little place nestled up in Topanga Canyon. The flights of stairs can be tough, bring your trainers and pack light! Not 100% privacy but pretty close to it. Love the outside seating areas, the gazebo was great. The jacuzzi was also very relaxing. Don’t plan on doing much cooking since it’s more of a kitchenette, dorm fridge and a microwave. Nice heavy bedding, slept very well! The bed frame is a little squeaky but you’ll live. Overall we had a nice and relaxing time! Shari was very sweet and more than accommodating for us the entire time!

Cozy cottage and a beautiful tranquil property

  • 5 of 5

Amazing setting. Cottage nestled in the tree tops of Topanga Canyon. Offering all the amenities one needs. Including a gazebo with Netflix! You can even stargaze from the bed. This place offers peace and tranquility as well as a jacuzzi on the deck with beautiful humming birds drinking nectar from the flowers.

amazing view

  • 5 of 5

other than the climb up the stairs. the rise is different on every set and sometimes in the same set. definately a young persons climb. but totally worth it. very restful. reminded us of home. definately not a place to cook.but plenty of restaurants close by.
