Lori was readily available at all times and her home is beautiful, as are the grounds. It's a very serene and lovely setting with a beautiful view of, I believe, the Los Angeles Mountains. I've always loved Topanga Canyon so it was special staying there. Thanks, Lori

Check in and communication from Lori was quick and responsive. The home was immaculate when we walked in. Felt very cozy but in a large space with high ceilings. The piano is an incredible addition. The shed/bedroom is great, spacious bathroom. The Patio is almost the size of the home and the views are priceless. We cannot wait to go back!
