Charming & Special!
Canyon View Lodge is wonderful! Its many appealing aspects--location, setting, house, and lovely hosts--add up to a very special place. LOCATION: Its location in Topanga Canyon is ideal for several reasons. Being mid-way between PCH and Woodland Hills allows for easy access to the beach, Malibu, and LA, as well as shopping in WH. Near the top of one side of the Canyon, it offers an amazing view of the far ridge. It's also located at the end of two short (vs very long) steep roads. SETTING: Its tiered garden behind the guesthouse is replete with lavender and rosemary. Lanterns hung in the overarching live oak trees enhance this magical setting at night. With its potted palms and plants, the large terrace below/in front of the guesthouse looks like it could be in the Mediterranean. Twinkle lights entwined along its railing make for a most welcoming effect. GUESTHOUSE: The charming two-story guesthouse is cozy, compact, and well designed. The knotty pine interior is sympatico with its natural setting. The many windows imbue the house with a great sense of light. Andrea and Peter's design capabilities are impressive. For example, as a desk sits in its own alcove, it doesn't intrude on the living room area. Though tiny, the kitchen is well equipped and organized. HOSTS: Andrea and Peter were delightful. They respected my privacy, and were always willing to be helpful and accommodating. I thoroughly enjoyed my two month stay there. I can't wait to return!
