Description

The Space

This 1 bedroom Suite is spacious & straightforward, allowing for one to unwind in all its anti clutter glory. This is a place to think, to create, to write, to read, to power down from all the usual daily distractions and just be.
It is located only a minute from the village of Topanga, but you'd never know you were anywhere near Los Angeles--- it feels like you are staying in a remote mountain village.
There is a full kitchen with a new fridge, full bathtub and shower, comfortable queen bed with bedding and the option of an additional mattress or futon in the living room, high speed wireless internet, parking, coin laundry, on a lovely property with ancient oak forests and sculpted creeks.
There are lots of windows for an airy feeling or you can close the curtains and for your privacy. You can keep to yourselves or be part of the community feeling here, as you prefer.
Surprisingly we are only about 10 minutes from the beach and less than twenty minutes to Santa Monica (10 fwy), Malibu or Calabasas (101 fwy) We particularly recommend Inn of the Seventh Ray, Canyon Bistro & Wine Bar and "Fresh in Topanga" all only a few minutes drive. For groceries there's a General Store just below the only traffic light in the village of Topanga.
This property is situated on 12 acres of land with an artistic and bohemian feel, minutes from the center of Topanga, CA.
The location is idyllic, in the mountains with access to nearby hiking trails and creeks. This property is a paradise for dogs, but if you bring a dog it is considered an extra guest for an $15 per night additional fee.
Cats are not allowed because of the danger in this wild canyon.

*************************************************************************
DISCLAIMER: Please note this is not a stand alone cottage. While very private with your own entrance it is a suite a part of our main house. It has its own kitchenette and private bathroom. **************************************************************************
DISCLAIMER: We are really in NATURE here - these are older cottages hand-built by artists in the forest. They are very rustic! It's like living in a park with other cottages nearby. While we work very hard to keep our places pristine and spotless - if anyone in your party will faint if they see a bug or lizard or little frog inside - then this probably isn't the place for you. Please be very careful booking cottages for someone else - like your parents just arriving from another continent.
Some folks describe our places as a glorified form of camping. We make them very comfortable - they have all the basics - electricity - wifi - most have kitchens, bath or shower and comfy clean beds. But they are not like a hotel with perfect walls and sterile atmosphere. Please look at all the pictures and read all the reviews. We can't offer refunds just because we don't meet the standards of a normal hotel. Most people are charmed by this idyllic and bohemian living - but it's not for everyone.

*********************************************************************
FILM AND PHOTOS SHOOTS: This is an amazing property for photography and film with 13 acres of rustic cottages, oak forests and sculpted streams. But please note we have special and quite reasonable rates for filming. Please let us know ahead of time so we can work out the details. Commercial filming is not permitted without permission.

Getting Around:
It's best to have a car during your stay. There isn't any public trasportation on the mountain. The Village is a mile away which has a general store
House Rules:
NO PARTIES!
We don't allow parties without prior arrangements so we don't disturb the other guests. It's extremely quiet here at night. If you're having more than the one or two other friends over please let us know in advance.
DOGS ARE ALLOWED FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE!! SORRY, NO CATS!!
A. Vehicle - All guests must have a vehicle. If you are planning to get dropped off here please contact us first so we can determine if it is appropriate.

B. Kids and Pets -We are kid friendly, but please inform us of how many kids of what age you have when you inquire about the reservation. Same goes for pets.

C. Agility - Most of our places require one to be agile enough to climb a driveway, up a ladder, crawl through a small door, or something requiring nimbleness. If you are elderly or don't consider yourself agile, you might want to consider another rental. Please read our descriptions carefully.

D. Unusual- Most of our rentals are unconventional and rustic. Please come here expecting something different! For most people this is what is so charming about this magical little village. Some people consider our places akin to a luxurious form of camping! Make sure you aren't expecting anything that's not in the description. The vast majority of airbnb guests are completely charmed by this place. But as one of our reviewers wrote: "This is Old Topanga Canyon Verite (French for "the real thing"). Don't expect Holiday Inn"
