Location

Topanga Canyon, California, United States

LOCAL POINTS OF INTEREST:
AirBnB does a great job of covering Topanga! Check out their location guide here: https://www.airbnb.com/locations/los-angeles/topanga

Topanga State Beach is an 8 minute drive & Topanga State Park is about a 5 minute drive. In Topanga, there are many hiking trails, some with eight thousand year-old Indian caves & waterfalls.
Mimosa Cafe is the village coffee shop, which is a 10 minute hike down the hill. Just across the way from Mimosa, there is a natural foods store & a little mini market. Santa Monica & Malibu are a beautiful 15 minute drive along Pacific Coast Highway.

Suggested local restaurants would be Inn of the Seventh Ray, Froggy's & Cholada Thai food. Great restaurants in Malibu are Geoffrey's, Nobu Sushi & Cafe Habana.
The closest large grocery store is a Von's Market, located on Sunset Blvd. There's also a natural foods market & deli in Malibu, named PC Greens. Additionally, a local raw smoothie & juice bar has opened recently, about a 5 minute drive from my place called Topanga Living Cafe in Topanga!

Hey, I'm Darrell -- native to California, I own an antique & vintage clothing store in Topanga Canyon. I enjoy spending time surfing, spear fishing, diving, snorkeling, traveling, storytelling & generally spending time outdoors. I also enjoy a good movie -- my favorite is the Indiana Jones trilogy & Avatar. I've lived in Topanga Canyon since the 70s & have spent many years creating an environment where I want to spend as much time as possible. I love visiting any place tropical & wanted to live in Hawaii, but decided to create my own tropical escape here. My place is like a combination of the Swiss Family Robinson & the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. I enjoy meeting people from all over & I often host small BBQs with my tenants who also live on the property. I'm an easy going host & live in a treehouse on site, so I'm available if you need anything! If you'd like to share a meal or hang out around the fire, I always enjoy hearing stories from new people.

During your stay
VISITORS while STAYING:
As the property is shared with other guests & sound carries in the canyon, I want to maintain an atmosphere of privacy & tranquility. Therefore, I do not allow ANY visitors or additional guests during your stay, no exceptions. The guesthouse is reserved for 2 people that I meet during check in. This is especially important during covid to keep safe, so if I discover additional guests and/or visitors, AirBnB will ask you to leave.

PRIVACY:
The guesthouse is a stand-alone unit, private & faces a large lawn with firepit (as shown in the photos). I do have a gardener, you may get a glimpse of and/or myself maintaining grounds. The hot tub is reserved for your use, from 10 am to 10 pm (other tenants have their own hot tub). I live on the property, remotely & away from view of the guesthouse, but am reachable by phone call. Many couples stay at my property for romantic getaways & aside from check in, I sometimes I do not see them for the entire weekend/they do not see anyone, unless they call on me for assistance. All amenities including lawn & hot tub are reserved for AirBnB Guests during listed hours; but know that you may see an occasional groundskeeper who will not disturb you.

If you call me, I will come down & hang out with you with a mask/distanced (I require that you wear masks for all interactions)! I interact as little or as much as guests like - Some people like to spend their entire time secluded, and I only appear to give a welcome property tour. Other people who have stayed hung out with me for a friendly chat. My level of interaction depends on your preference!

HOST COMMUNICATION:
I only accept phone calls from guests who are staying in the guest house. It helps ensure that I'm able to address your questions readily & easily. I do not text message, and don't always receive airbnb messages so I request that all guests call me immediately for any help or knock on my door if you are having reception issues. I do have a cell booster in the guest house, so while in the guest house reception should not be an issue.
