overall a good experience, but there are a few things to be aware of; the room is directly below the hosts' living space, so you do hear them walking around, faint snoring, talking (the sound, not the words), their dog barking, etc.
The house is located up a very twisty road, and driving in at night can be challenging if your night vision isn't the best. My cell phone had very spotty reception, and their internet strength was low, making connections slow.
The parking space allotted is a little tricky to back in to, if you aren't good at backing in. You are navigating into a space between the house and the hosts' car, so you have to be careful.
The bathtub is narrow and short, so if you like large tubs, this is a different experience.
The room felt a little chilly to me; the space heater was welcome. The first night, after I'd said I was cold, the hosts turned the heat in the house up (you share the heating system with their home), and it got quite warm in my space; I told Elliott it was too warm, and following nights were fine.
The bed was heavenly and the birds were amazing.
We loved your apartment in Topanga Canyon. The ambiance was very beautiful inside and out, although we didn't spend much time sitting outside in late November. It was very quiet and private. We loved being both so close to hiking in the park and just up the road from the beach. A perfect hide-away for vacationing so near to L.A. We definitely recommend this B & B.
