Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Maggie:



The house was great! We were all very impressed with all that was furnished, how clean and roomy it was, and the clear instructions.



Our vacation experience in Anaheim was great. It was so much nicer to have the house and all be together than each with their own motel room.



Sincerely,

Carolyn

I'm ok with dated but not disrepair and dirty

  • 1 of 5

Let me start by saying I've rented at least 16 houses on VRBO and HomeAway and there is only one I would not stay at again - this house. The location is wonderful and the neighborhood is quiet and very nice. To one of the other comments - the checklist when you leave is typical of rental houses - nothing taxing. The decor is dated and that is not the issue. These are the issues - VERY stained carpet (I am NOT a germophobe but even I wouldn't walk around barefoot), very dirty exterior on a white kitchen waste basket, lots of dirt in the groove between the sink and the counter (kitchen and bath) and along all the baseboards, dirty counter top, refrigerator exterior, poor paint job in one bathroom, chipped paint (and it is an older house - possible lead based?? small children??). Lots of water scaling on and around the kitchen/bathrooms. When stripping the beds when leaving, pillows are sweat stained, found spots on the mattress pad. There was only one hair dryer and it had two speeds, plugged in and not plugged in. The property manager did drop a new one off (it was hanging on the front door one morning). Our first purchase was 409 to clean the kitchen (some of the dirt came off). The fridge has handles that must have been cushioned at one time but the cushion part is all crumbling and falling apart. Everything has a good layer of dust on it. This house needs a really good cleaning, not sure what the cleaning fee is going for and it seems the cleaning crew and property manager must not communicate or the cleaning crew just does not care. The travel materials in the house are all very dated (prior to 2010) and the book of instructions in the house must be generic as it mentions a garbage disposal that does not exist. Oh and the inflatable pools are not usable - found them half inflated in a heap on a porch swing next to the house full of very dirty and smelly standing water. We emptied it, let them dry and put them back to combat the smell. We had to wash off the back deck as there was some sticky substance like someone had spilled something. Back yard landscaping was full of weeds taller than the plants in the beds.

Great location close to Disneyland

  • 4 of 5

The home was very comfortable and everything we needed in a home away from home. We were traveling with family including elderly parents and children and everyone was pleased with the accommodations. The neighborhood was very quiet and safe. The fenced in back yard was a great place to unwind after a day at the park with family and our small puppy. The renter was very helpful and friendly to all our needs. We will certainly book this property again when in the area . Thanks again for the hospitality!

Good location, but otherwise not great

  • 2 of 5

The reservation process was easy and the location of the home is ideal. I would not stay here again and would not recommend to family or friends. I should have given more credence to the owners' disclosures about age and quality of the home. (My home is the same age so I was not too concerned that the home was built in the 1960s). The exterior of the home is nice but the interior and furnishings leave much to be desired. The TV did not work at all and although there is a substantial cleaning fee, the traveler is required to take out trash, strip the linens and towels, and wash/dry/put away all dishes.

Owner's Response: We are not sure who this person is. We ask anyone staying in the home to advise us of issues such as the television not working so we can take care of it during their stay. The home has accommodations as represented and we ask our guests to clean up a certain amount from their stay so we can keep the costs down; the cleaning fee includes cleaning and laundry.

We had an absolutely amazing time in Anaheim

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time in Anaheim during our February 2015 visit.

Our stay at this home was truly awesome. We found the location was

perfectly situated; it was close enough to Disney but far enough away

from the traffic/people on Katella. The neighborhood was extremely

quiet, the neighbors were very friendly, and there was little car

traffic in the area. At nights, it is quiet but you can view the Disneyland fireworks display from the yard. The house was clean and spacious plus all appliances were in

very good working order.

As this is our first vacation home rental, we were not disappointed. Everything from email correspondence, reservations, accommodations, and refund of the security deposit all went very smooth.

What mattered most is that our family was all together!! Your home was the perfect atmosphere for us to be together. Thank you so very much for all the little things that made our journey here absolutely phenomenal!

Thanks! Linda Ridgeway

Great location!!!!

  • 4 of 5

I reserved this house for my best friends bachelorette party and it was perfect. We did a Temecula/Disneyland bachelorette party. We had 10 adult women in this house and it worked out perfect. This houses location was amazing. It's an easy drive to most of the freeway locations, Disneyland.

The stuff in the house is older but that's okay cause we weren't in the house very often. The backyard is amazing. Big and fun for kids. If you want clean/matching thingdon't stay here. The 4 rooms are big and we had 3 in 2 of the rooms and 2 in the other rooms. We didn't watch tv so can't review that. The one thing we wished was that there was like a radio or something for music...we looked on the tv and couldn't find music stations. The driveway big enough for the 3 cars. The one compliant we had was lack of mirror space (but again you normally won't have 10 girls in one house).

Overall this house was perfect for what we needed. A whole lot cheaper than 3 hotel rooms for 3 nights!!!!

Great Disney Trip for Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends had a fantastic trip, and this house was perfect for us. We were close enough to walk to the Disney Resort and if tired took a cab if we weren't and cost wasn't great. Close to a fantastic pizza place, the house was a haven from the tiredness of the days at the parks. The house was way better than expected or described. Everything was clean, backyard was beautiful, driveway fitted the cars we brought. Add in Satellite TV, a grill, and WIFI created an awesome experience. Totally recommend it for families! The owner was very nice and helpful.
