About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with unobstructed state park views, pool, jacuzzi, privacy

Our home is located in beautiful Topanga State Park in the hills of Malibu on a private driveway. Our home is well kept, well appointed and very comfortable. Our home has an open floor-plan, truly stunning views, amazing outdoor living spaces including fireplace, bbq, pool, jacuzzi, and a variety of private sitting areas. Truly one of a kind resort like feel, and only 15 minutes from the beach and restaurants and shopping, and 40 minutes from venues like the Hollywood Bowl, Universal Studios, and a lot more. Our home has direct access (literally right out the back) to incredible hiking and mountain biking trails throughout Topanga State Park in the Santa Monica Mountains.

The home has a living room with fireplace, family room, dining room, office (with 2 work stations), 2 full bedrooms and bathrooms and a brand new and very comfortable queen pull out couch (in the living room with fireplace). The home also features a gourmet chefs kitchen, pool and jacuzzi, outdoor fireplace, bbq, and many unique outdoor seating areas. The home comes fully furnished with everything needed to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable with central air/heat, washer and dryer, high-speed internet with zoned Wi-Fi and Satellite TV.

The master bedroom has a California King bed, 42" Flat Screen HD TV with Direct TV, DVR, DVD and two lighted night-stands and a large dresser. The master bathroom includes a shower, bath and walk in closet. The views from the master and bathroom are breathtaking. The bedroom has a large 10' glass sliding door, and the backyard living space is easily accessible.

The 2nd bedroom is on the small side, but has a full sized bed and single trundle pull-out, with dresser and closet.

The home also features a full office with two chairs, printers, etc., and places to connect your computer to monitors should you like to get some work done, or simply check in.

The gourmet chefs kitchen overlooks the pool and Topanga state park (as does most of the house). You can literally watch deer graze in the adjoining meadow while preparing a delicious meal. The kitchen includes high-end Thermador stainless steel appliances including large refrigerator, 6 burner gas range and oven, dishwasher, microwave, double wide copper "farm" sink and wine/beverage fridge. You can enjoy your meal indoors on the 8-10 person dining table, or outdoor living area with rustic teak 8-person dining table while soaking in the sunset playing out across commanding views of the Santa Monica mountains. The Kitchen also has large custom surfaces with seating for 4 people to hang out and chat while cooking, or for a quick breakfast before heading out for a hike, bike, etc.

The Family room has a large comfortable couch with 60" Flat Screen HD TV with Direct TV, DVR, built in surround sound (and amplifier supports outdoor speakers throughout), Wii and BlueRay DVD Player. The views from this area of the home are also amazing, and with Plantation Shutters easy to reduce light for TV viewing if desired. The open floor plan seamlessly connects this room to the kitchen, and great for hanging out.

The open floor plan includes a Living room including a new comfortable "shabby chic" style couch, which easily pulls-out to become a queen bed fit for a king and queen. This room also has a gas fireplace, benched seating and beautiful outdoor views.

The home is in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. The only sounds you may hear at night are coyotes howling and owls hooting.

About Peter & Rhonda

We love to travel and have seen a lot of the world, but have a lot more to see. We are from Southern California, and love the lifestyle here. From surfing, to skiing, to hiking and mountain biking we do it all and enjoy every second.

Why Peter & Rhonda chose Topanga

We always wanted to live in Topanga. We both grew up in surrounding areas, and know how special this location is. When we found our property we knew it was a special place, and have had nothing but wonderful experiences here. We've never seen a home with the expansive views our home offers. We wake up everyday feeling blessed we live here. We are truly happy to share our slice of heaven with others.

What makes this house unique

The outdoor living space is simply incredible year round. There are so many special spots on the property, it simply depends on the time of day as to which you'll love most. Perhaps our favorite is a round chaise sunken down in a unique viewing area. It faces South East, so watching a full moon rise is quite special from this spot. You can actually see Coyotes down below our fence line howling in the moon light!

What can one say about a place so perfect and beautiful as Casa De Anton.

We have been vacationing in Malibu California every year for the past 15 years as a family member lived there and it always felt like home. Recently they had moved away and we were not sure if we would ever return. When we ask our kids where would they like to go on vacation this year, to our surprise they both said California. After many hours searching for rental homes on the internet, my wife came across Casa De Anton and right away we just knew that this home was for us.

My wife contacted Rhonda and Peter thru the site and they answered straight away.

Upon arriving to the house, Rhonda, Peter and Sue greeted us with open arms. They showed us the house, talked about places of interest and then left us to soak it all in. Prior to our arrival they had asked us if we would like to keep Luna, their dog, during our stay and we happily accepted. Luna is a amazing dog with a wonderful nature and just made the place feel more like home.

The pictures on VRBO are beautiful, but when you get there it really becomes a magical place. The house is clean and very well maintained with lots of beautiful detail through out.

We went on many excursions, Santa Monica, Santa Monica Pier, Zuma Beach, ATV trail riding, drive along the coast, 3rd street Promenade Mall, shopping in Malibu and the small shops in Topanaga Canyon, but no matter where we went, returning to Casa De Anton truly felt like home.

I would, without hesitation, strongly recommend this home to anyone looking for the most magical place to spend their vacation.

Thanks to Rhonda, Peter, Slater and Luna for sharing they home with us

and we look forward to the day we return.

Quiet, peaceful home with beautiful mountain views, amazing hiking & biking trails out the door.

  • 5 of 5

My family & I spent a week at Casa De Anton & we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The mountain views are breath taking, the quietness is peaceful, a wonderful place to sit back & relax. We all thoroughly enjoyed the salt water pool, it was amazing to be able to swim or sit in the hot tub & look out at hawks & listen to owls & Coyotes, what a special place. The house itself was very clean & comfortable & well appointed with the owners art & beautiful taste, which adds to the calmness & beauty of this cozy home. Thank you Luna, Slater, Sue, Bob, Rhonda & Peter for the wonderful hospitality, we are already looking forward to our return and cherish the new friendships we have made.

Topanga Canyon is a unique jewel nestled in the hills next to and above Malibu. Many famous musicians found Topanga in the 60's & 70's including Jimi Hendrix, Canned Heat and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young to name a few. The community is highly creative, collaborative and very friendly and welcoming. There are world class hiking and mountain biking trails all through and around Topanga State Park in the Santa Monica Mountains. The hills harbor a wide variety of stunning wild flowers, trees, plants and beautiful wildlife. Watch a deer graze in our meadow, or listen to the coyotes howling at night while viewing the stars.

Topanga Canyon has a variety of wonderful restaurants and fun local happenings. From local open markets on Fridays to events at Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum to dinner at the Canyon Bistro, all visitors find this canyon incredibly scenic, and charming. Discover a spot that is timeless and beautiful.

If you are looking for a peaceful place surrounded by nature with everlasting sage perfumed air... or a quiet refuge with easy access to beaches by day and the opportunity to go 45 minutes away and see a concert at the hollywood bowl, Topanga is for you!!
