The space

Our home is a great space for entertaining and/or just relaxing. We are located at the end of private road so the property and neighborhood is quiet and private.

Mary's cottage is wonderfully sited with great views across Topanga Canyon. The cottage is surrounded by multiple decks and terraces where you can sit at different times of day. A perfect place to enjoy a peaceful retreat surrounded by trees, flowering shrubs, a variety of succulents and humming birds.

My colleague and I stayed at Mary's house for about a week. Mary was incredibly responsive and forthright, and the house itself felt cozy and a great space for 2-3 people. The views from the house and hiking trails outside were beautiful, and the neighborhood itself a quiet corner of LA. We had some trouble with ants inside the house and heat at night, but otherwise no major issues. The house is about a 20 min drive to Malibu or 25-30 to Santa Monica.

Response from Mary:
Ants in the house - While we do everything we can to discourage them, when the temps go above 90, they come in looking for water and food. Traps and spray repel them but the best defense is not leaving out any food on the counter or dishes in the sink. Luckily this is an intermittent problem but understandably an annoyance for guests.

we had an absolutely wonderful time here at mary's. the views are extraordinary and there are trails onto public lands literally right outside the door. a paradise for walkers and trail runners. mary was a wonderful host and took great care of us. her home is very well appointed, with an extremely comfortable bed, great kitchen, and lots of great outdoor spaces in the garden to sit and watch the mountains. we were there in the hottest part of the year, and it didn't get too hot; there is AC in the bedroom so sleeping wasn't a problem at all. we loved it and hope to come back. thank you Mary!

The place is classic Topanga Canyon. A little secret in the middle of the LA metropolis. Close to everthing, yet far away. My wife and my two sons, 13 and 15, enjoyed the place. We stayed here for a couple of days to help ease what would have been a long trip from S Florida to Tokyo.

This place is amazing! Exactly how you dream a Topanga Canyon cottage will look and feel, with at least four different outdoor spaces to enjoy, complete with comfortable chairs (including a hammock), an outdoor grill, incredible views in every direction. The cottage itself is cozy and charming and extremely comfortable. We could have stayed here forever.

I landed in Topanga after 14 years of living and working in NYC. Being the giant sprawl that is Los Angeles, I felt incredibly lucky to have found Topanga which is unique in it's connection with nature yet close enough to all the dynamics of a big city. I bought my home in 1996, which was a former hunting cabin and one of the first homes established in the Canyon. I love to travel and my home and property reflects that. I hope you come to love it as much as I do. Welcome!
