Interaction with Guests
Friendly, experienced hosts to provide directions and recommendations.
Calabasas has a lot to offer; the Commons is a quaint, upscale shopping plaza with a multiplex movie theater and several restaurants. Many celebrities live nearby and are often seen around town, at Starbucks, or at the weekly Saturday morning farmers market in Old Town Calabasas. This part of town has a flavor of the old west and hosts historical landmarks, including an original stage coach stop and the notorious Sagebush Cantina.
Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, nature is out the front door, with great hiking, mountain biking and motorcycle riding all around, including famous Mulholland Highway. Other local points of interest include UCLA, USC, Cal State Northridge, Pepperdine University, the Channel Islands and Catalina Island. Public golf and tennis facilities are nearby. Most sightseeing venues are close and easily accessible; the 101 freeway is only 2 miles away: Malibu beaches, surfing and shopping are just 12 miles away, Universal Studios 22 miles, Hollywood 25 miles, Beverly Hills 25 miles, Downtown 30 miles, Santa Monica promenade and Beach 30 min, LAX 32 miles. Take a day trip to Disneyland, California Adventures or check out Laguna Beach. Or head to Santa Barbara (60 min) Ojai (45 min) and Santa Ynez wine country (90 min - where the movie Sideways was filmed) and maybe stop at the outlet stores on the way.
