Modern Retreat with Great Views | Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Ideally located just an hour away from New Orleans in Louisiana’s capital, this modern retreat rests on a beautiful 1-acre lot. Guests enjoy a pool area so remarkable that one might mistake it for that of a celebrity enclave you’d find in Calabasas. The upscale residence features 4,000 square-feet complete with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and an extensive list of amenities – including a media room, laundry room, cabana, and expansive outdoor grill station. This remarkable slice of Baton Rouge makes for the perfect Louisiana getaway.

ThirdHome member Garrett says, “We had a fantastic time at this beautiful Baton Rouge home. Our owner/host was unbelievably gracious and attentive to every question and request. The pool and outdoor kitchen were perfect for our family. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The kitchen was exceptionally beautiful and very well arranged to cook any type of meal. If you are in this part of Louisiana, you can’t go wrong with this home.” Click here to read Garrett’s review.

Tuscali, A Little Piece of Tuscany | Topanga, California

Discover a little piece of Tuscany in Southern California. Nestled in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains, Tuscali is situated in a gated property with mountain views from Topanga Canyon and Topanga State Park. A brief, picturesque, 6-mile drive down the magnificent canyon will deliver you to the Pacific Ocean, offering the beaches of Malibu with Santa Monica just minutes away. With three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a private pool, and unforgettable views, this Italian-style villa can provide paradise for the whole family.

ThirdHome member Linda wrote, “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Topanga. The home is very private with only birds and hummingbirds for visitors. The master suite is extraordinary and the backyard with the new swimming pool makes it hard to leave the property. The owners are very kind. We would love to return one day.” Click here to read Linda’s review.
