William was such a great host and the place is amazing. The apartment is big enough for a couple to feel completely like home. The kitchen had everything we needed and he even left some milk and coffee waiting for us. We can't be happier with our stay: the views are spectacular, the environment is just what we were looking for: quiet but close to the beach.
We will be coming back!
Very nice location with a breathtaking view, that is every day a bit different. Nick and Ellen are very nice hosts which help you when needed and otherwise leave you your freedom. I came already the second time to get a break of freezing Chicago.
I was provided with excellent directions which was very helpful. Upon arrival, Ellen warmly greeted me and provided an orientation to the apartment ensuring that I had everything I needed. The kitchen was stocked with milk, butter, water, and basic condiments which was lovely. The bed was very comfortable; the apartment was spacious and very clean. It was very nice having Wifi and a TV with Netflix. The view is amazing, and if you want a quiet spot to relax, this will definitely meet your needs.

I had a lovely stay at William's place. The view is breathtaking! It is very quiet and peaceful. William was very considerate and a pleasant host. Will definitely consider going back some day!
I really enjoyed my stay at Nick's ocean view guest house. It's a comfortable, private, clean and tastefully decorated space, with nice amenities (ex. cable tv/netflix, landline because cell service in Topanga can be spotty at best), as well as a small, but highly serviceable and modern kitchenette area and a spacious bathroom with a nicely designed shower/bath that was wonderfully soothing after a long hike. I also appreciated the care Nick put in to gathering various materials about Topanaga and the local environs (eats, hikes, activities), which are provided to you in an organized booklet. And the view, ah, the view. What you see in the picture is exactly what you get and it's quite a luxury to be able to sit outside and gaze out over the ocean and the Santa Monica Mountains in the distance. This was a great choice for me, because I was looking to have a "home base" in Topanga from which to go out and explore the area, while having the option to duck into LA without to much hassle.
