Tarzan & Jane room? Me Tarzan Not sure if I would come back

1.0 on August 03, 2018

I never write reviews because I think they are usually from people with over the top expectations. I am in the service industry for many years working in large hotels and clubs. I was greeted this evening upon check in a little strange, not used to this type of greeting especially given the price of our accommodations. 239$ a night. We have stayed here before and are disappointed as we are staying the night. Greeting a guest by telling them first to sit down? No time for small talk I guess? We had to ask for water! I went along with the introduction of our room, a little cold for a bed and breakfast inn keeper. We paid less here previously & this room really needs attention ants in bathroom very dated accommodations. Shower head needs attention, very dirty. Shower very small,price for room changed from 193-239 within the day as we were deciding on staying. I assured my wife we would have a great time as before. We now have to get dressed to use the bathroom at night because it’s not part of the room it’s in the common area. Who gets dressed to use the bathroom “camping” Anyway when here don’t pay for Tarzan & Jane room we had to go to the common area to use WiFi, I should have stayed at playa del Rey inn. ¿¿


quick getaway

4.0 on July 23, 2018

We came for a quick one night stay as an add on to an important dinner celebration and it felt like we had been away for the weekend. Breakfast was delicious.


What a Find!

5 on July 22, 2018

Want to stay in a beautiful and QUIET place, surrounded by nature, and still close to the J. Paul Getty Villa, the Malibu restaurants, hikes to view points, and the beaches? This is the perfect place! Clean, lovely architecture and art, and the BEST home-cooked breakfast in California! We just couldn't believe our luck! We stayed here one week ago, on Sunday and Monday nights.


Little Gem in Topanga Cyn

4.6 on June 29, 2018

This rather large B&B, run by a Russian/American couple and their 5 children, is a wonderful place to stay if you're looking to spend a weekend hiking the Backbone Trail and indulging in some Topanga Cyn rituals like dining at the Inn at the Seventh Ray, catching an outdoor play at Theatricum Botanicum, or just shopping in what remains of the West Coast's version of Woodstock. The family proprietors are delightful, the breakfasts are wonderful, and the rooms are ample. The decor can feel dated at times, but that doesn't detract from the overall cozy ambience. Elena and her children will make sure that you're being taken care of. And to have access to the Santa Monica mountain trail basically out your back door is a pretty cool bonus.


Great 4 nights in 3 rooms

4.8 on May 25, 2018

We've stayed at TCIBB several times and really enjoyed our stays. This trip was unusual because we were late making reservations. Consequently, we stayed a total of 4 nights and stayed in 3 different rooms. Everything was top-notch but I would make one comment of concern. In the middle of our stay we were in the Rett and Scarlett room with a jacuzzi tub. We used the tub and really enjoyed it, however two jets didn't work. Also, we noticed that when we used the shower in the tub, the tub slopes from the back wall out to the bathroom floor such that water from the shower flowed from the shower around the top of the tub and out on to the bathroom floor. Certainly these two issues didn't damage our wonderful stay but we did want to mention both of them. Moving rooms wasn't a problem and your sons helped us with the luggage move. We always enjoy our interaction with your family!


Hilltop Getaway in Topanga Canyon

3.4 on May 24, 2018

We chose the Topanga Canyon Inn because of its proximity to a wedding venue, The Inn of the Seventh Ray. We selected the Fred & Ginger room mostly for the en-suite bathroom. The room had its own little balcony, just enough space for two people, which was excellent for enjoying the views with a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evening. The room itself was fine for our needs. (Note to owner: We forgot to mention the light over the tub is either burned out or not working.) For those that want a cup of coffee before breakfast is served, you may make yourself some in one of their kitchens. The drawback to this or any other food preparation you do on your own is that you are requested to clean the dishware/utensils yourself. I don't per se have a problem with washing dishes. At their prices though they should clean those dishes. The highlight of the stay was the delicious breakfasts they serve. (Another note to the owner: Make more coffee. We, at the table, were always looking for more. I understand that all we need do is ask, but it can be embarrassing to request more. I find that even if you make too much, it's not an expensive staple if you need to pour the remainder down the drain. Yes, I understand the water shortage situation, but again it's not that much.) The inn is very convenient to the top of the Topanga Canyon State Park which offers even greater views of the canyon and the surrounding areas. The inn is very close to The Getty Museum, The Getty Villa (highly recommended), Santa Monica, and Malibu.


Welcoming, comfortable, congenial atmosphere

Always a pleasure to stay at this peaceful inn in Topanga.


Unique BnB

3.4 on May 13, 2018

My family of 4 enjoyed Topanga Canyon Inn because of the breath taking views and that we happened to have the whole of 2nd level to ourselves so we can spread out in the living room, dining room and patio outside. It felt like our own apartment. It's very peaceful and many art pieces to admire throughout the Inn. The breakfast was plentiful tho' it wasn't anything different or special from an American breakfast e.g. eggs, sausage, french toast etc... We didn't feel the warmth of this family-run business, but the beauty and colours in and around the Inn certainly made up for it.


1 week vacation

4.6 on May 08, 2018

Spent 6 nights in Bogey & Bacall room on ground floor of Casa Rosa. Room was clean and en-suite bathroom larger than I expected. This was the least expensive of the rooms and thus provided very good value, although looking at the other rooms they seemed very nice/nicer. Warren's family took care of all our needs and prepared very nice breakfasts, which were well attended by other engaging guests. Location was good for visiting family in the valley and northern LA coast. Be prepared for rather interesting and winding drive up the canyon drive and to the B&B, located slightly after the end of county maintained roads. Parking was also a bit challenging at first but got the hang of it after the first day. The upside is a beautiful and remote canyon location, near the Topanga park if you are into hiking. Warren's family were great hosts, in particular breakfast and management by his daughters.
