Architect's Family Home

The space

Looking for a private zen retreat or fun family adventure? This may be the best deal for a full size home on the mountain. Part of the reason is that we only rent when we go away, and our pets stay at the house. So if you are willing to daily feed and take care of 2 indoor cats and a dog, this is a great deal for a lovely space in the middle of Santa Monica Mountains. 10 min. to the beach and Malibu, 15 min. to Santa Monica. Our home has a stunning deck facing the mountains, fireplace, wi-fi, 2 bd, (main bedroom with king, and other with single bed), 2 baths, a fun little loft, plus a convertible queen couch that sleeps 2 in living room. (1300 sq. ft. plus two large decks) Our backyard and side yard is Topanga State Park, and we have direct private trail access for miles and miles of hiking and mountain biking. We are shaded in an oak grove, with large horse pasture and mountain views. Topangan's are just about the most interesting, conscious, unique, artistic and loving people you will meet. The center of Topanga, a popular spot for shopping, yoga, and dining, is only 4 minutes away. Our oak woodland and only one other neighbor on our access road means privacy for those in search of peace and quiet and nature activity. So you can be as social or reclusive as you please. Once again, our home comes with two soft indoor cats, Annie & Josie and a sweet dog, Tori, who love visitors and are easy to live with (see photos). They are just the most loving creatures and are very gentle! One week minimum.

Other things to note

Pet care involves morning and evening feeding, and daily litter box cleaning. its all set up and simple and the animals will remind you! so this is not for you if you plan to do overnight trips. if you like animals but pet care is not your deal, we can make arrangements for somebody to feed and tend daily for an additional $25 per day.

Three of us stayed at Gina's for a week and the place held us very well. The setting is lovely, with a quiet backyard to watch the birds and a coyote, and front decks for eating out. The beds are comfortable, I even did not mind the pull out in the living room. The kitchen is easy to use and fine and they leave all their kitchen stuff so there are lots of dishes and cooking implements. She left us a welcome basket and several vases of (URL HIDDEN) was very welcoming.

This was our first airbnb experience, and it was a fantastic one. We were met by Gina's neighbour and he gave us all the tips and tricks of the house but also the surrounding area. The house manual was great and covered all we needed to know. The house itself is as pictured, very quiet and tucked away in the Topanga mountains, very relaxing and just gorgeous. We just loved the dog, she is lovely, and very good with our two little kids. Highly recommended!

We had a very nice stay in Gina and Clak's home. The house is spacious, clean, well designed, in a very quiet but non isolated area. The view on the montains is fantastic, especially at sunset. And the dog Tori is a lovely companion. I will warmly recomand this place, not so far from dontown L.A. Une très jolie maison, conforme aux photos, pas loin de dontown LA mais dans la campagne préservée de Topanga Canyon, avec une vue fantastique spécialement au coucher du soleil. Les propriétaires sont adorables, prévenants, et la chienne Tori aussi. On s'y sent vraiment bien. Recommandé.

We stayed at Gina and Clark's lovely Topanga Canyon home for a week this summer. The house is ideally situated if you want to be out of the city but close enough to get to it (and the beach) in minutes. We could see stars each night and hear the coyotes from the 2nd story wrap around deck! There is immediate access to trails in the Santa Monicas from the back of the house. Gina and Clark left a super detailed note with information about the house, house care and things to do. Their Neighbor, Nick, also greeted us on our arrival, was available during our whole stay, answered any questions, made restaurant and hike recommendations, brought us some fresh fruit and sold us a dozen eggs from his chickens. The house itself accommodated the five of us easily. Also, we fell in love with Tori, the dog, and Annie and Josie, the cats. We wanted to take Tori home with us. Super home and location. Would absolutely go back.
