Lovely Casa Portofino . . .
I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Casa Portofino; hosts Don and Jerrolyn welcomed me as one would an old friend, and I felt immediately at home. The home is well appointed with every necessity. . . and a beautiful setting. Couldn't ask for more. Many thanks to Don and Jerrolyn for their warm and wonderful hospitality.

Beautiful vacation rental, wonderful hosts.
The title sums up all that needs to be said. The property is absolutely spectacular; waterfalls, flowering plants, and peacefulness abound. On top of the beauty of the property, the hosts could not have been more welcoming and kind to our family and friends. We have remained in contact and upon returning to Los Angeles, will not hesitate to rent the properties again.

Wonderful experience, outstanding vibe
Beautiful accommodations with wonderful hosts. One of the best rental experiences I've ever had. Spending a few days at the Mountain Chateau brought on the desired effect of complete relaxation. Topanga canyon and the outlying areas offer up some of the most beautiful countryside in California, combined with the proximity to LA makes this one ideal getaway. Pool, Hot tub and a view of the ridge close the deal. Highly recommended.

Mountaintop Paradise
My husband and I, along with our basset hound, spent Christmas and New Years Eve 2010 at this mountain chateau. The photos did accurately reflect the chateau, but didn't really do it justice. Everything was beautiful and well-maintained. Jerri and Don went out of their way to welcome us.They had a beautiful Christmas tree decorated especially for us, along with welcoming gifts. Several times Don had to come up for various reasons, to teach us how to use the remote control for the TV, to show us where to park, etc., and he did so each time with grace and gentility. Jules even got the royal treatment! The property cannot be described accurately; enchanting is the word that comes to mind. My husband hiked all over Topanga and Santa Monica, and Jules and I relaxed in the chateau. I spent a few hours in Jerri and Don's house on Christmas Eve...it was a Christmas wonderland, and they are gracious and friendly hosts. We were even invited to Christmas dinner and New Years Eve! They definitely went above and beyond the call of duty as landlords. Besides the unusually rainy weather, over which our wonderful hosts had no control, we couldn't have asked for a nicer vacation spot, or nicer temporarily landlords. When I left, I told Don that I could be happy living in the chateau. A charming and calming place, it's probably even better when the weather allows the gorgeous pool and spa to be used. I would recommend this vacation spot to anyone. I'll never forget our time there. Georgia Kinkella
