Nestled in the mountains just off the coast between Santa Monica & Malibu, escape the city to our recently remodeled gorgeous guest house in picturesque Topanga Canyon. Conveniently located 7 minutes from Topanga Beach (known for its surfing), 20 minutes from Santa Monica, Malibu or Woodland Hills and 35 minutes from Hollywood, we're the perfect local getaway!
Desirable climate-perfect Upper Fernwood residential neighborhood. Designed by Bill Adams, the guest house features an open loft floor plan, with tons of light. Recent renovation and unusual architectural details make this property a fun place to spend some time. The kitchen (with granite countertops, wood cabinets, gas stove, refrigerator) opens to the loft-like living space with vaulted ceiling and floor to ceiling windows overlooking Santa Monica Mountains/Topanga State Park, which open via sliding glass doors onto private deck with views. Full bath with stained glass window also located on main floor. Guest House features an additional sleeping loft which we ask guests not to use as the staircase is steep and there is no railing for the loft platform. Driveway accommodates 1 car comfortably and 2 if parked one in front of other.
Ideal for 1 or 2 people.
On the ocean side of the canyon, but very close to 'town', including Topanga State Park with hiking, biking, wildlife observation and horseback riding all at your fingertips. 3 minutes downhill to the center of town (Abuelita's, Hidden Treasures, Topanga Farmers' Market, The Inn of the Seventh Ray, Theatricum Botanicum). Explore the Santa Monica Pier, the 3rd Street Promenade, the Santa Monica Farmers Market, and in the summer catch a Twilight Dance Series Concert on Thursday nights on the pier. Cruise up the legendary scenic PCH (Route 1) 6 miles to Malibu and discover some of California's most beautiful beaches.
Wifi included. No TV (we're analog except for the internet). Fall asleep to a symphony of frogs & crickets after an evening of effortless stargazing, and awake to the sounds of an aviary.
No smoking please. No additional guests without prior approval from hosts.
PLEASE NOTE: Photos are an exact representation of the space. The guest house is on the same property as the main house, separated by 15 feet of deck but has its own driveway, entrance and is a completely separate freestanding structure. Privacy is not an issue. Cellular phone service (making actual phone calls) can be spotty depending on your carrier. We have Verizon and get good reception. Text and email work well, and the wifi network is strong. Special pricing for major holidays.
We had an absolutely wonderful time at Eamon & Emily's guest house! They were such great hosts! The guest house is spacious for two people, and has all of the creature comforts anyone could need. The bed is very comfortable, all of the linens were clean and fresh, and they even left coffee, tea and condiments for us to enjoy. The views outside the guesthouse are truly breathtaking. It's amazing how you can feel like you're in the middle of mountain country but only be a few short minutes from the PCH, Santa Monica, and the hustle and bustle of LA. Some people have commented on a "harrowing" drive up the mountain road to reach Eamon & Emily's guest house. I live in Minnesota where an ant hill is considered a mountain, and I can guarantee you that the drive is not as scary as it's made out to be. Just take it slow and make sure you're aware of oncoming traffic. I actually enjoyed the drive up and down the hill. You will see all kinds of different homes and structures perched on the side of the mountain. The is a small grocery store/market in the town of Topenga where you can get basic food items and beer/wine. Also, make sure to do some hiking. The scenic vistas from near the Guest House are very beautiful. We visited duringa a rain storm that lasted almost three days, but we still got some good hiking in. And Topenga State Park is just a few miles away. And again, Eamon and Emily will make sure you have everything you need. My wife and I never got to meet them in person, but they did send us a note via Airbnb midtrip to make sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the LA/Santa Monica area!
Lovely room with a great view--it was immaculate,relaxing, and a wonderful getaway for my wife and I.
Our hosts were considerate and unassuming. All in all, a very nice stay.
This place was the perfect getaway for LA if you prefer the peace and tranquility of the Topanga hills. Beautiful spot and had everything needed for a long weekend trip. Thank you Eamon & Emily!
We had a memorable time and really enjoyed our stay. The place was very clean, and cozy with great views. It was very quiet and peaceful. The bed was very comfortable and the patio is an excellent spot for eating breakfast.
There are countless views while driving up and down the mountain so don't forget your camera. There's a nice lookout spot at the top of Topanga Canyon.
Eamon and Emily were responsive and accessible when needed but they gave us our your privacy. They are excellent hosts.
We gladly recommend this place to other guests!
The guest house was lovely, spotless, and serene. The hosts were very fast and thorough with communication. Looking forward to staying here again in the future!
Beautiful space and great, easy hosts. Wonderful pick! Not a single problem. Awesome neighborhood; took many relaxing walks. Kitchen was fun to cook in. Overall adorable.
This was our second time here and it was as lovely as our first. Great views and great vibes. Nice hiking nearby. It's always a pleasure at Eamon and Emily's!
The perfect mountain retreat for my folks when they stayed over the holidays. They loved the peace and quiet, great views, and walk down the hill in the morning,
Had a great stay. Host was very quick with answers to my questions, would definitely recommend!
I decided to escape from the big city for a few days and I saw the post - nice guesthouse in Topanga, and decided to go there. I liked it the minute I got there: it's cosy and lovely place, very quite, with a great view! I was just by myself but there was enough space for two people. And Emily provide me with everything I need, coffee and teas were very pleasant treats. Thanks guys for such a great experience:) I will definitely come back soon!
