About this listing
Topanga is magical. Our home is located at the end of the street, a quiet sanctuary, perfect for anyone looking for relaxation and restoration in a natural setting. Minutes from the San Fernando Valley on one side and the beach on the other. :o)
Topanga is magical. It has all of the convenience of Los Angeles, but has all of the natural beauty and peacefulness of a retreat.
People who visit always comment on how peaceful my home feels. We live in the last house on the street, so it is very quiet. The entire community is adjacent to state park conservancy land, just minutes from hiking trails where you are likely to spot deer, red-tailed hawks and other local wildlife.
Top O' Topanga is a beautiful gated community nestled in the Santa Monica mountains. We are only ten minutes away from the 101 freeway and all of the amenities of the West Valley (shopping malls, theaters, etc.), but without any of the noise. Also, we are only eighteen minutes from the coast, near the famous beaches of Santa Monica, Venice & Malibu.
Guests have full use of the community workout facilities, library, pool table, swimming pool, & hot tub. The pool is heated from Spring Break until Halloween. The hot tub is heated year round. Views from the pool and community house are spectacular!!!
We have one bedroom available with a beautiful full-size (double) mahogany sleigh bed plus room for an air mattress (if you like to be very cozy). This room has an adjacent full bath which is partially shared. Alternatively, you can rent the master bedroom: queen sleigh bed with an adjacent private bath including a gorgeous custom-designed jacuzzi bath tub. Rental of the master bedroom is $125 per night.
The photos need to be updated. Please see the master bedroom photos for a more accurate image of the guest room's new sleigh bed. It is the same style, only full size.
We also have an additional bedroom with a twin bed for $57 per night. (This room is only available as an add-on; it is not available on its own.)
Topanga is a magical place to live, even for a few days at a time!
Guests have full use of kitchen, dining room, living room, all communal areas of the house.

A peaceful stay high in the mountains with an amazing view. An enjoyable stay away from busy lights and sounds of the city. Thank you Sage for allowing me to stay at your cozy home : )
Sage was a wonderful host. I was particularly impressed that, in arriving quite late to sages house, my room was nice smelling and candles were burning. Sage was great to communicate with in organsing the visit and very honest, reasonable and a happy host to stay with. I found my stay with Sage very pleasant and homely.
This was my first Air BNB experience and if any future experiences come close I will be thrilled. Sage is a thoughtful, generous, fun, engaging host who has made my stay in Topanga a joyful and wonderful one. Her communication was brilliant right from the start, replying quickly with all the information I needed to make my choice to spend two weeks here. Once here, she has shared info on what to do and where to go to help me get the most out of my time here.
I was looking for a nurturing space to retreat and be creative and that's exactly what I received. I love the house, it has great energy and character. My room was comfortable and clean. And the Top O' Topanga is a magical place, with stunning scenery and hikes on the doorstep.
I have loved staying with Sage, I could quite happily move in! Alas, it's time to move on but I would highly recommend staying here.
Sage and her family are very welcoming and make you feel right at home upon arrival. She communicated nicely and swiftly with me from the beginning of my booking and made this a very pleasant experience.
Sage is a gracious host who made us feel like family. The accomadations were as agreed. The house was a little rustic but the beautiful views up in the canyon more than made up for it. We would stay there again. It was quiet and serene up there.
Sage is a gracious, thoughtful and interesting host, who has created a lovely safe, tranquil, and quiet space for guests to stay. Beautiful location at the top of Topanga Canyon with easy access to the Valley, beaches, and the beauty of the canyons. Highly recommended if you are looking for a beautiful quiet peaceful place to stay in the area.
I stayed one week in the Knight residence. Sage is a delightful hostess who openly shares her top of Topanga home. The accommodations provided include a spacious private room and a queen size comfortable bed. This is a great place for creative ones to get inspired.
