Come to Topanga Canyon and enjoy this garden level guest apartment with modern design flair. A great escape from the rigors of city life, yet close enough for an easy commute to most of LA.
Well-appointed Jr. 1 Bedroom comfortable apartment with polished concrete floors, full kitchen, full bathroom, Jacuzzi tub and outdoor shower (Jacuzzi, outdoor shower and garden are share, the second unit on Abnb has his own garden not share and not on the picture of this unit anyway). Wireless access and cable TV is one way to relax, or you can instead spend your time outdoors basking under the stars in our outdoor Jacuzzi and soaking in the sounds of nature all around. This is not your typical rental unit. The sun is in the morning time but the lighting make it extremely cosy and beautiful to stay in, any time of the day.
$25 fees would be charge for each additional Guest (Baby, Child or adult) after 2 people. Suprvision Dog friendly for those with friendly dogs. EACH dog would be considered and booked at the $20/day fees. I love dog and offer a Dog Sitting available at additional charge.

I'll be back for sure.
Sylviane made us feel very welcome in her lovely apartment. Very accurate description, and very quiet place to rest! It was in a great location to get around and see the canyon and Santa Monica and Malibu - really fun. She was really especially helpful accommodating for our young son, setting up his bed and all sorts of little chairs and toys for him. Very sweet!
It was a pleasure to meet Sylviane and we very much enjoyed chatting with her. The accommodation lived up to the listing and we enjoyed it comfort very much. The garden and hot tub were a particular bonus. It was very quiet and peaceful and a lovely area to visit, very convenient for everything we wanted to do. As we were visiting from England it is unlikely that we will be back in the area again but of we were we would certainly stay there again if we could.
Sylvie was warm, welcoming and a great host all around. The listing was even better than I expected, cozy, well appointed and very comfortable. I highly recommend this spot and this host!
Sylviane is a wonderful hostess. She was exceptionally welcoming, warm, and friendly. She made sure that we were well informed about local adventures and treats, and gave us plenty of privacy. Her dog Pablo was sweet and the perfect friend for our pooch.
Sylviane was great from the get go, excellent communication and accommodated a change in my arrangements without fuss. Upon arrival Sylviane was warm and welcoming, gave a tour of the garden apartment along with the necessary information to get up and running, she also made herself available for the duration of our stay. Pablo the dog deserves a worthy mention too!
The location is excellent, far enough away from the hustle of LA but close enough to Santa Monica and Malibu. We had some of best nights sleep there, the atmosphere has to be experienced.
The apartment itself is well equipped, light, airy and warm in the chilly Topanga evenings.
Highly recommended and will definitely book again when the opportunity arises.
Host was very responsive and attentive to every detail. The space is on the property with other similar bungalows making a fun funky environment. Her 1970s mod decorating is really rad. The little homes are absurdly cozy and a real respite from the LA madness. Note that Topanga has limited businesses and is out of the way, so plan accordingly.
