Welcome to Topanga
My husband and I have always homeschooled our three boys, ages 20, 17, and 12. It is a wonderful way of life for us. Our eldest son Cole is a gifted musician and artist, off at college. Our middle son, Jameson has a heart a mile wide and can't get enough literature to satisfy his love of books. Our youngest son, Silas is smart as a whip, fun, sweet, and tries hard to keep up with his big brothers. All are athletic. We enjoy traveling and the ease of our flexible schedules. We especially love traveling when others are in school! Brad is a screenwriter. I, Alison, am at home full time with the boys, facilitating their educations. We are grateful for our wonderful, varied homeschooling community. Though we have a dog, she will be elsewhere during anyone's stay here in our home. Unless necessary to make other plans, Marley, our blue healer mix, may well come over and visit as our wonderful neighbors, two houses over, offer her a home away from home when we're gone.
Alison and Brad's place in Topanga is every bit as beautiful as their photos and description would lead one to believe. They were generous and easy going as hosts and respectful and thoughtful as guests. Overall a great experience. We would definitely exchange with them again if they ever want to come back to NYC.
Phil and Laura couldn't have been more kind and thoughtful in caring for our home in Topanga Canyon, even leaving us a lovely gift of wine and daffodils. Their loft in Tribeca was a perfect home base for our family to explore, explore, explore New York City, including many of the personal favorites they suggested.
