Kerry and Javier are wonderful hosts--kind, generous and welcoming. The space had everything we needed for an enjoyable retreat. I would recommend this place to anyone who longs to be in nature. Kerry is a gifted artist whose creative touches are all over the space. Thank you both for your hospitality! Odette and Ray

This place was simply awesome! It is in a beautiful location in a part of the world that I felt lucky to have access to for the few days we stayed here. The apartment itself was clean, private, well-designed, and aesthetically quite beautiful. Kerry has also added a lot of really nice touches (Amazon echo, private deck, beautiful artwork). She also gave us great ideas for exploring the surrounding state parks and beaches. This was really airbnb at its best, and I would definitely stay here again!

Out of the many Airbnb's I've stayed at over the years, Kerry and Javier's beautiful Topanga studio was by far my absolute favorite experience of them all. I instantly was welcomed into their space with open arms and made to feel completely at home. From the bright midnight stars to the sounds of the birds waking me each morning, to the comfy organic king size bed to the convenience of having everything I could need for a beyond comfortable stay, I don't have enough words to express how wonderful of a journey it's been spending time at this cozy studio. I HIGHLY recommend anyone who is considering booking with Kerry and Javier to definitely do so - and get ready for some blissful nights submerged in nature full of beauty and magic.

Kerry's place was even more amazing than I expected. After we received the warmest greeting I just knew we were in for a treat. The studio is perfect and surrounding nature was the exact escape we needed. Such a relaxing getaway with the beach just a few mins away. I will be back again and again!

My husband Javier and I love to travel. Javier is from Madrid and I am a Santa Monica native. I have lived in Nepal and Thailand, each for a month, London for a year and Japan for almost 4 years working for the Japanese government as an English teacher. Between us we speak English, French, Spanish and some Japanese. We encourage families to visit our home. We have two boys.

I have a BFA in fine art and before having children I started my own business with the money I saved in Japan doing decorative painting in high end homes. Gold leaf, sky ceilings, lime wash finishes, frescoes, egg tempera and other decorative finishes. I LOVE to paint, design and draw!

Javier and I are also crazy about Japanese design and we are inspired by the culture, architecture and food. Maybe you will feel a Japanese sensibility when you visit?
