Private and peaceful Topanga Canyon bungalow overlooking Malibu & the Pacific Ocean. Amazing hiking right outside the door and only a ten minute drive down the mountain to Topanga Beach.

The space

The bungalow is a charming and rustic studio perched on top of the Santa Monica Mountains with beautiful, sweeping ocean and mountain views.

Guest access

The bungalow is situated on a ten acre property with a private road. There are a few other homes on the property and it is private and peaceful. Located high up in the canyon but only a few minutes away from PCH and Topanga Canyon Beach. There are a number of beautiful hikes accessible from the property.

Interaction with guests

Happy to answer any questions and will be available by phone or email.

Other things to note

The bungalow and landscape are magical but please be aware that it is a rustic, hand made home and very much in nature and therefore if you are someone who is not comfortable running into a spider or walking down a dirt road, it may not be the right fit.

Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains so you may see deer, bobcats, coyote, rabbits, raccoons, snakes, etc... It's wonderful to have these creatures around and I've never had any problems. However please just be aware and consider your actions - IE, it's best not to leave any food or trash outside of the bungalow overnight and you might not want to leave the doors open as snakes or other creatures could sneak inside.

No cable but there is a flatscreen TV with HBO Now, Showtime and Amazon Prime.

The bathroom is charming, set up with lots of plants like a greenhouse but be aware there is not a bathtub and there is an open shower.

The kitchen is equipped with most cooking needs + a vitamix, electric tea kettle, small stovetop coffee percolator and big berkley water filter.

The house is small, private and absolutely amazing. Everything is as described and the location is wonderful. It's worth stopping to pick up food/drink on your way to the house as it is up in the hills and a bit of a trek to get back to the shops however we found the location perfect! Spectacular views and Heather was an amazing host with excellent communication! Would highly recommend staying here. Dealing with Heather is a treat. Thank you!

This place can not be beat. If you are into a birds eye view of light changing over an incredible landscape of mountains and sea. A specific kind of architecture that Topanga specializes in, a breathing structures, built to be connect to the surroundings. Great vibes all around. Heather is a great hostess and a sweetheart.

Staying at Heather's bungalow was truly one of the most memorable Airbnb experiences I've had. The space itself is magical, with lots of wonderful little details that spring from the artistic spirit inhabiting it. The eclectic desert-chic decor, the fantastic art and new age book collection, the little surprises everywhere (smudge sticks, pretty pebbles and shells, feathers, scents) all remind you that you are in a very special space. The energy of the canyons and the ocean is incredible-- and because the house is so open to the outdoors, you are aware of your amazing surroundings at all times. Being able to walk out the door and be on a majestic trail with panoramic views of the mountains, the canyons, and the ocean within less than five minutes is incredible. And yet you can be eating an amazing dinner at Malibu Farm in under a half hour. Ultimately, this is the kind of Airbnb experience that will make you dream of giving it all up and moving somewhere off the grid to create your own little slice of heaven.
