The sound of frogs, after the recent rains and the hooting of the owl lulled me to sleep. Very grateful to have found this oasis. A calm, soothing sanctuary after a day of work away from home. The sound of the frogs at night, after the recent rains, the hooting of the owls lulled me to sleep. Very grateful to have found this bohemian oasis. No TV (thankfully) to distract, but wireless internet connect is strong if you wish to say connected, or in my case, continue working. Thank you David for sharing your space. Very much appreciated.
Such an amazing place! I can't give it enough praise. It is very rustic and it's pretty much like stepping back a century but that is exactly what we wanted. Super comfy bed and it was lovely to fall asleep to the cracking fire. Taking a morning bath outside with coffee and the mountains misting in the sunlight was perfect. Highly recommended!
The location is beautiful. David was so kind and came to greet us as we arrived at the cottage after dark. The cottage is definitely rustic, but everything is up to date and nice. If you're looking for something a bit out of the city this is a gorgeous place- though the cottages etc. are set quite close to each other. There wasn't as much privacy or an in-the-middle-of-the-woods feel as I was hoping for- but this is only because of the wonderful community of tiny cottages David keeps on the land. It would be perfect for large groups who want to rent out a few of the cottages and all be close.
The weekend I booked ended up being covered in severe storms and flash flood warnings so I emailed David to see if I could save my credit and move it to a later date. After all, this trip was so I could enjoy nature and be outside. I didn't feel safe staying in an unknown area while this storm system was moving through. He has yet to reply.
Amazing. I came to this location, and got so excited I unpacked in the enchanted cottage. It's really a special place, and I will absolutely be back. I then realized I was in the wrong place and moved myself to the Hacienda Hideaway. It was so perfect! New bathroom, a cozy couch and a comfy bed. Right outside the door was a hot sauna!!! There is limited space to hang clothes, but I suspect that might be different soon. This whole place is pretty magical and really the only place that captures the feeling of the magical Topanga Canyon. I will be back for sure…. Thank you David...
We loved the creative suite! An authentic Topanga Canyon experience! The bed was super comfy, the furnishings eclectic and fun. I loved having a little kitchen, full sized fridge. So many great hikes nearby. Fun and friendly little community of people . Next time we want to check out the little cabins! We will be back!
Our month in the cottage was a dream! David was a gracious host and I am hoping to return next year for a much longer stay! Topanga is a magical place with friendly people, hiking/ yoga, good food and an easy commute to the beaches or the Valley. We miss it already!
A lovely place in a lovely community. It is rustic, yes, but the bed is ultra comfy and there are all the basics. David was most accommodating.
Overall great experience for this ex Peace Corps volunteer Seattle mom visiting her LA daughter. Topanga is lovely and the dwelling was spacious and rustic in a hippy way. We took a hike in Topanga park and built a very warm fire in the wood stove after our return. We'll be back!
A very memorable Topanga "treehouse" adventure! We hiked through the woods, ran by the ocean, and listened to a lovely orchestra of crickets, owls, and frogs before falling asleep each night. It was the break we needed from the city! Thanks David!
