A Great Place Stay!

4.6 on July 09, 2016

Beautiful views, delicious breakfast prepared by the family. Great location. We would definitely stay with them again.


Wonderful!

4.2 on July 08, 2016

My husband and I stayed at Topanga Canyon B and B for several days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Roche family was delightful, friendly, polite, and welcoming. They are happy and quick to accommodate any needs or questions you may have. The breakfast they served was delicious and ample—I did not need to eat lunch. They have 2 breakfast seating times (9:00 or 9:30), that on one of our days was too late as we had early morning plans—Karina Roche made sure to layout cereal, fruit, and muffins for us to have something before we left for the day. You have access to the house kitchen and common rooms. The decks were a wonderful place to sit and enjoy your morning coffee, afternoon read, or a glass of wine. Our bed was very comfortable, we slept very well. The ocean is just down the canyon and access to the city “goings on” are close enough, but you are off the beaten path to be able to relax after a day in the city. Easy access to hiking trails—all be it up a steep hill, the views are phenomenal! There are restaurants close and some that even deliver to the B & B if you are too tired to venture out. If you like theater the Theatricum Botanicum an outdoor Shakespeare theater is just down the road. We will recommend Topanga Canyon B & B to all our friends and be all too happy to stay there again on our next trip to the LA area.


Fantastico!

4.8 on July 05, 2016

We loved our stay here. Astonishing natural beauty surrounds the inn. Loved the access to common areas,decks and fantastic hiking w/stunning vistas. I made these reservations quite a while ago, when I learned my daughter was getting married in the area and I forgot there was breakfast. On day 1 I caught hosts off guard by informing them I ate plant based diet. I had no expectations that I would even be fed, so was not upset there was nothing for me. Same day host informed me that she acquired a # of cereals for me. Better, each day there was at least one or more delicious vegan options provided for me including vegan french toast, muffins, waffles, potato dishes. And what a breakfast! Beautiful sit-down meal in which we were able to talk with all the other visitors. I know that in requesting these reviews host asks for any suggestions on improving the inn. I would stay here again whether these changes are made or not but here goes: 1- is there any way to connect the bathrooms that are not accessed directly to guest room (Tracy-Hepburn)? Awkward to scurry out into common area. 2- More hooks in Tracy-Hepburn bathroom to accommodate all clothing you need to bring w/you to shower since there is a lack of privacy. Replace giant mirror w/hook system? 3- I can't think of a solution, but parking is a bit challenging. 4- Perhaps some basic implements (eating utensils, glasses, plates) in upstairs kitchen? 5-Bathrooms fully stocked at beginning of stay so one does not have to ask for additional rolls of toilet paper 6-Each adult should be given his own set of keys - we always had to keep track of who had the keys so if we went separately, the other would not be locked out. 7-In Sylvia- Ramon there is only a curtain between bathroom and bedroom - I would suggest a door and some type of pull out mirror to use while applying makeup or shaving. 8-Air conditioning in Tracy & Hepburn seemed to be a bit inadequate. Thank you to the hosts.


Lovely B&B up Topanga Canyon

4.8 on July 05, 2016

The location is nice and quiet with great views and close to hiking. We went for an afternoon hike that starts just up the road. There are many dinner options close by in the canyon. The breakfast at the B&B was great - we had French Toast with blueberries. The service and hospitality was great as well.


We're not in LA anymore Toto

4.8 on July 03, 2016

This was a beautiful place to stay! The rooms were exceptionally clean, comfortable and spacious. The common areas were welcoming. The family that own the Inn are just lovely. I also loved the little details - bottled water, fruit, coffee and tea all available whenever you want them. Breakfast was a highlight - absolutely delicious - and they went out of their way to look after my dietary restrictions (gluten free). You absolutely need a car to get anywhere around the Canyon - but Uber and Lyft do service the area.


Great Hide Away Above Malibu!

4.4 on June 26, 2016

Our arrival was handled very professionally. Rooms were wonderful, although you need to know that your private bath is not connected to your bedroom, so you may meet other visitors in the hall. Breakfast was fantastic. Lower rating for service is due to the special circumstance of a fire occurring that ultimately led this B & B being in a voluntary evacuation area. We kept up with status via internet and listening to the news on TV - would have appreciated it if our hosts had stayed in closer communication and been on site during this stressful event. Parking is a bit of a challenge when the rooms are all booked.


Best B&B Ever

4.8 on June 06, 2016

This friendly, family-owned & operated B&B is absolutely outstanding. Located half a mile from Topanga State Park, the location can't be beat. The facilities are lovely. The proprietors have managed to strike the perfect balance between the hospitality one would expect at a 4-5 star hotel, and the atmosphere of renting a whole house. Will definitely return.


Absolutely delightful!

4.2 on June 06, 2016

I've stayed here twice, and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. It's spacious yet warm, the rooms are comfortable (I slept like a baby, even on the first night of travel, which is unusual for me), the views are spectacular and the service is wonderful. Porch sitting at sunrise or in the evenings is such a treat, and it's tough to beat the home made breakfasts. I look forward to returning.


Ein schöner Urlaubsbeginn!

3.6 on May 16, 2016

Wir wurden freundlich empfangen und bekamen ein hübsches Zimmer. Das gemeinsame Frühstück mit anderen Gästen und dem Hausherren machte uns großen Spaß und es gab alles was das Herz begehrt. Ein gelungener Start in unseren Urlaub!


Great place!

5 on April 10, 2016

This B and B is the best I've ever stayed in. We will definitely come back. The daily breakfast is better than anything you'd get in a restaurant. When you combine the nice room with the common areas it really is like you've rented an entire house.
