“A wonderful find”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

I was looking for a place that was not too far from home and for just a night. I needed a break from Los Angeles. I had no idea this place existed--tucked away on Topanga Canyon. The hosts, Teresa and Bruce, are truly wonderful, warm and friendly. The house is gorgeous. The breakfast is excellent. This is a great place whether you're a local looking for something lovely and rural-feeling, an out-of-towner coming in to visit. Kudos to Bruce and Teresa.

We have been visiting this area for many years and are thrilled to FINALLY find the perfect location for lodging when we visit friends and family in the LA/ Malibu/ Santa Monica area. Bruce and Teresa were the ideal hosts, and if I may say, new friends as we found much in common. Together they have created a haven of European style luxury that is a wonderful value especially given the luxurious amenities, the delicious and hearty breakfasts and evening appetizers and not to mention the exquisite interiors with all of the comforts of home. No special request was too small or too large, including providing for our very early morning coffee. We live in a very quiet location so we especially appreciated the serenity of this property. Highest recommendation in all ways.

During our journey on planet earth, we attract and are attracted to magical moments that lead to encounters with passionate, deep and truly exceptional individuals. What a gift to enjoy time with a couple who radiate all of these - together and individually. Hosting MBGAA was indeed our pleasure!!!!

My wife and I were attending a friend's birthday party in Topanga Canyon and thought it best to stay locally and not drive home. We found an absolute gem in the Tuscali. The setting is serene and beautiful and the inn is just fabulous. Very spacious and well decorated with nice amenities everywhere. Bruce and Theresa are just the most attentive and gracious hosts. It was like staying with friends. Bruce was even nice enough to drive me and my wife to our party. Breakfast in the morning was excellent. Even though we live only 30 minutes away it was like a vacation. Such a nice place to spend time. We will be back.

One truly feels as though they slip away into a small village in Tuscany while staying on this beautiful estate. The landscaping, architecture, interior design, and most of all the hospitality supersedes that of any getaway experience. Spectacular views, morning hiking, gourmet breakfast and hors d'oeuvres, comfortable bed and linens, and perfect location as you have the convenience of driving a couple miles to Malibu or Woodland Hills, or simply remaining a reckless hidden away in a mirage of Italy. We even considered not going out for dinner because we knew we would not get an ambiance quite like Tuscali Mountain Inn. Thank you Teresa and Bruce we enjoyed your company!

The hosts were gracious and giving. The Inn is serene and restful, as is the scenery. The food -- great. We tell everyone we know that they must visit Tuscali and we know we'll be back.

Room Tip: A MUST for us would be a closet and larger dresser in the small bedroom.

Greetings, Allegreta and Peter:

We very much enjoyed your presence at Tuscali. You are both warm, friendly and absolute pleasures to enjoy time with.

Regarding additional places for your cloths. We could not agree more. Due to the octagonal shape of the room, furnishing it has its challenges. Thus locating an armoire with the correct size and depth required savvy research on Teresa's part. We are very pleased to inform you that Teresa has purchased the most amazing antique armoire for the Tuscany Room. Now you will not only have multiple drawers, but an attractive place to hang your clothes as well.

We have you penciled in for a February stay. Looking forward to hosting you again.

Bruce and Teresa are wonderful hosts, sharing their beautiful space with graciousness and warmth. The house and grounds are stunning and it felt very comfortable having a room there, which was spacious and perfectly appointed. Teresa is a superb cook! From afternoon appetizers to crepes for breakfast, it was delicious.
The local restaurants were a nice change from the usual chain owned properties, dining among creeks and twinkle lights, with healthy food options being abundant. The local Will Geer outdoor theatre was a delight also. All said, a nice way to spend a few days feeling calm & serene with lots to do without the usual rush. I highly recommend the Tuscali Mountain Inn. Oh, I slept like a baby, it would be worth a return trip just for that!
