About This Listing
CHQ sits in the hills of Topanga Canyon just a few miles up from the beach. Enjoy this newly remodeled completely custom home. So close yet so far. All the amenities you'd expect from a high-end resort yet the comfort of being in your own home.
It served as headquarters for the local film festival before its transformation into this tricked-out multi functional getaway, retreat, vacation home or space to entertain.
The house comes well stocked, features gourmet kitchen, spa tub and laundry facilities. There's highspeed internet and cable TV.
You have State Park trails at the end of the block and the town center, Pine Tree Circle within a brisk walk. You really don't need a car to enjoy this place.
The house sleeps 2 couples comfortably (queen size beds) and the office functions as a 3rd bedroom with a comfortable daybed that converts into 2 single or a double mattress.
A perfect weekend getaway, worlds removed from the hustle & bustle of L.A yet reachable within minutes. 15 minutes to Santa Monica or Malibu to the South, or to the North, 15 minutes to Calabasas and Woodland Hills and access to world class shopping and entertainment.
The house can be rented for day time purposes (yoga retreat / workshops) or to host a social gathering. inquire if interested.
The house is ideal for 4 people (2 couples) but can sleep up to 7. If you bring more guests feel free to let us know and we can work with you.
As for rules we trust it's pretty much common sense. We ask to be respectful of our neighbors. No parties without prior permission. Don't steal stuff. If you break stuff, fess up.
Ah, and don't burn down the canyon.
I'm sure we can think of more rules and guidlines and you'll find a written handbook about how things work and what there is to do in the vicinity when you get to the house.
More Questions? feel free to ask.
Urs Modern retreat in Topanga was just perfect. We felt so welcome and comfortable there. The fresh design of the home and the perfectly outfitted kitchen and baths were wonderful. We hope to come back for another stay in the future and will absolutely recommend the house to everyone.
I agree with the other reviewers, everything was wonderful! I didn’t get to spend as much free time here as I would have liked because I was attending a workshop during my stay. But while I was there, I found it to be a relaxing place to work and meditate.
The only note I would add is that if you have a large car, it takes some doing to turn it around to go back down the driveway, especially if there is another car parked there. Be sure to ask about the extra space up the hill!
I sell real estate, so I've seen A LOT of homes, but this one tops the list. Not only is the finish-out of the entire house beautiful, the setting can't be beat. Natural light bleeds into the house all day, and the night skies and mountain-views are breathtaking. Everything you need or want to make a relaxing trip is readily available for you in the house. I didn't want to leave, and wasn't forced to checkout at any particular time, so I got to linger and take-in the view a bit longer. The owner was extremely flexible with everything -- the absolute perfect host and house. I hope Urs never stops making his house available; I know I'll be back many times.
We had a wonderful experience and would love to stay here again. As the photographs show and previous guests have described, it's a beautiful property. We felt very welcome and at home. It's a short drive to the 1909 (event venue) and a short walk to a trail head.
We had a lovely experience staying at Urs's place in Topanga. The house in gorgeous and in a great location--10 minutes or so walking distance from Topanga village-area restaurants, but also completely secluded and with an out-in-the-country feeling.
The house is very thoughtfully decorated and well-appointed. There is everything you could think to need for a fun weekend away, from musical instruments to patio furniture to plenty of fruit in the kitchen. Also, the bathtub is luxuriously large, which I really enjoyed.
Urs was a kind host. I really appreciated that he notified me when I had left something behind after checking out, and met me back at the place to make sure that I received my stuff.
This listing is certainly not priced for the budget-conscious. But for those who really want to spend the money to have a great place to get away, or have a gathering, then you will get a lot of value for the money that you spend here. I truly do recommend this place for other potential airBNB travelers.
This is a gorgeous, spacious, beautifully designed, light filled house. Immaculately clean and well cared for. Lovely garden and view across the canyon. Fabulous location - not too far away from the action if you want it but quiet and peaceful if you don't. We loved the huge kitchen/dining area with the two gorgeous wooden tables pushed together and the vast expanse of glass and view to the canyon. Excellent modern bathrooms and showers.
Great communication before and during the stay. Would absolutely go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend to others. Be sure to see the album of photos showing the before and after the renovation that Urs did on the house to fully appreciate what a great job he did.
