Sylviane defines the Host, she makes you feel at home in a private setting and you will enjoy your stay as if you were a member of the family. Her place is better than described and shown…
Highly recommend, one of the very best Airbnb experience!
Sylviane was extremely friendly. Place was well kept and felt at home. Place felt like a hidden gem in midst of nature's beauty. Woke up to birds chirping and rooster sounding. Relaxing in whirlpool tub in the mornings with cup of coffee was true bliss. The drive to beach was scenic and quite special. Felt like found a hidden gem!
Ah, just looking at the picture of this apartment leaves me nostalgic! I stayed at Sylvia's garden apartment for a month, and miss it! Sylvia is an exuberant and warm-hearted host. She is available to help with any concerns, yet does not invade the wonderful privacy that the place offers. Her dog Pablo is also a good host: gentle and friendly with my old dog. Sylvia even took the time to show us a trail I never would have found on my own, at the summit of the canyon.
This place is a perfect retreat for a writer, or anyone who needs some time to spend " away from the madding crowd". Not only is the canyon beautiful, especially Red Rock, but the yard behind the apartment provides a green haven. I spend many hours watching the tiny white seeds sailing in the air, and the light moving on the trees, through the huge windows. I was able to continue my work sessions on the computer without worries about being interrupted.
My old dog, who has had difficulties eating because of liver disease, ate better while we were staying there than in the preceding year.
Lovely stay at the guest house! Many thanks to Sylviane for her accommodation.
Sylvia was our hostess and she was willing to meet us earlier than the listed check in time. She showed us around the home and offered to change or add anything that we thought we needed to be more comfortable. Everything was great! We loved the décor and the relaxing environment. Sylvia provided a binder with suggestions for restaurants in the area. Although we did not spend much time at the property, it was quiet and comfortable. Sylvia was available during our entire stay in case we needed anything.
My four friends and I stayed here for the weekend. We had a great time and the Guest House was the perfect size for us. Sylvia converted the huge walk in closet into a private cozy bedroom that worked out great to accommodate our fifth person. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, relaxing next to the indoor fireplace + outdoor fire pit, and floating in the jacuzzi. We hiked the Red Rock Canyon trail, which is an easy walk from the house. The backyard was smaller than I expected, but ended up feeling really comfortable. Sylvia has done a terrific job creating private outdoor sitting areas and the trees and garden make everything feel secluded. And Sylvia herself is wonderful, always there when we had a question, but never intruding. I will definitely stay here again... so many more hikes to explore!
As soon as we drove through the hills of Topanga and landed at the front gate, greeted by Sylviane, we felt like home. We could not have found a more perfect & comfortable place to stay. The listing is exactly as pictured, only they don't translate its true charm -- the walk way to the front door, the orange tree in the garden, the log fireplace, the natural light that illuminates the room through the skylights. It was perfect. As for the basics, the place was stocked with bathroom and kitchen essentials, we cooked at home both nights. The beds were comfy, no restless sleeps. Sylviane, thank you for your kindness. We will see you and Pablo again :)
This place is great, stayed here for 4 nights and we had a very relaxing time. Sylvia was responsive to anything we needed and very friendly. Located very close to shopping, restaurants, and Malibu. Will definitely be staying here again. The backyard was wonderful with an outdoor living space. Parking was easy, and the cottage was very clean and comfortable
We had a lovely time - it felt a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of LA. We enjoyed the red rock hike, the beach and hanging out in the pretty garden.
Sylvia's place is amazing.
It's a real nice and quiet niest on the nature.
It's a lovely confortable sweet home away from Home
It's a sharing place, full of love and respect.
The garden is well agenced to give everyone his own little area and privacy.
The fire place achieve to give the house its warm ambiance at night.
Sylvia is a very nice, helpful, caring, funny host. And she also knows when to stay discret.
I really recommand this place to anyone. Family, couple, single, you'll feel home here.
I'll be back for sure.
