  • Charming & Special!

    "Canyon View Lodge is wonderful! Its many appealing aspects--location, setting, house, and lovely hosts--add up to a very special place. LOCATION: Its location in Topanga Canyon is ideal for several reasons. Being mid-way between PCH and Woodland Hills allows for easy access to the beach, Malibu, and LA, as well as shopping in WH. Near the top of one side of the Canyon, it offers an amazing view of the far ridge. It's also located at the end of two short (vs very long) steep roads. SETTING: Its tiered garden behind the guesthouse is replete with lavender and rosemary. Lanterns hung in the overarching live oak trees enhance this magical setting at night. With its potted palms and plants, the large terrace below/in front of the guesthouse looks like it could be in the Mediterranean. Twinkle lights entwined along its railing make for a most welcoming effect. GUESTHOUSE: The charming two-story guesthouse is cozy, compact, and well designed. The knotty pine interior is sympatico with its natural setting. The many windows imbue the house with a great sense of light. Andrea and Peter's design capabilities are impressive. For example, as a desk sits in its own alcove, it doesn't intrude on the living room area. Though tiny, the kitchen is well equipped and organized. HOSTS: Andrea and Peter were delightful. They respected my privacy, and were always willing to be helpful and accommodating. I thoroughly enjoyed my two month stay there. I can't wait to return!"

  • What a great house!!

    "This was our family's first trip to Avalon, and we loved it. A critical part of our wonderful experience was staying at this house. SO highly recommended! The house is incredibly charming (built in 1924, with many original features) home looking over the harbor and the iconic Avalon casino. It is very spacious and comfortable. We were 9 adults, and had plenty of room to be together while also having privacy in the bedrooms. The kitchen and dining room and living room flow together very easily. The views are AMAZING. Location: The house could not have a better location, right above the harbor yet very private, and only 1/2 mile from the Avalon Casino. In between is the very special town that is Avalon, with shops and restaurants, ice cream and bakeries, and a feeling of stepping back in time to a gentler place. Everything is easy walking distance from the house. The House: The view from three sides of the house is spectacular, day and night. It was wonderful to wake up and watch the harbor come alive sitting in the living room with a cup of coffee and to enjoy the twinkling lights in Avalon in the evening. The kitchen is fully stocked, clean, and everything works well. The five bedrooms are all VERY comfortable. The three bathrooms had no issues with our large group, and the owner thoughtfully included soaps and extra toilet paper. The stairs: This is really not an issue. I was worried before booking, given past reviews and that my husband and I are nearing 60. Do not worry about these stairs, they are not challenging at all. Finally, the cost per night may seem daunting (it was to me), but it is actually a bargain. I did a lot of research into the options for hotels and B&Bs for our family trip. This house was economical in comparison, sight unseen. Now that we have been there, I can only say this: Lucky you if you have the opportunity to rent this house, as the experience is priceless."
