Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here with 3 couples for our Best Friends Birthday celebration from Las Vegas. We felt so comfortable and right at home. The house is very "cozy" and has room for the men and women to socialize separtely or together. The outdoor patio and back yard is so big and fun. There is a place for everyone to relax. We also enjoyed the nearby restaurants and the Downtown Disney area. We definitely recommend. 5 STAR

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time that I have rented this house for our Corporate group. Our stay this year was so great that I have re-rented the house again for next year. My staff said it felt like we were coming home. It is clean, well maintained and has all the comforts of home.

Just Right!

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time in this home on our first family trip to Disney. Thank you Sharlene for dropping off a stroller! How very helpful. This home was in a great location for Disney. Originally, we thought it would be great to find a home in walking distance to Disney, but after seeing the backyard in the photo's we decided being a grilling family, with small kids, this might just be good for us! I am so glad we did not do a home to walk back to, by the time our days were done, it was difficult enough to walk to the car for that 3 minute drive home! The few days we ended up staying at the home were wonderful. Not a moment of boredom. We played outside, both the adults and children and brought our favorite family board game! It was cozy and our family has created some great memories!

Close to Dinseyland, great outside entertainment.

  • 4 of 5
This was a great little get-a-way vacation home for our family when visiting Disneyland. I'll start with the

Pros:
Close to Disneyland
Great outside setup for family get togethers and barbeques
Swing set for the littles
Jacuzzi
Master bed has a super comfy memory foam mattress pad

Cons:
Bugs, spiders and cockroaches, and we had to sweep off the outdoor patio furniture, steps under the jacuzzi, and the barbeque island/chairs all had spider webs in/around the legs and underneath. Inside cockroaches and spiders in bedrooms. I think we squashed half a dozen or so.
The screen door going out through the front door was covered with spider webs in/around the front door.

Queen bed could definitely use a mattress topper as well.

Kids bunk beds were awful, springs poking through - We just used a couple extra blankets for the littles to sleep on top. Maybe provide some egg carton mattress toppers for those mattresses?

Remotes were hard to figure out which one went to which TV - not a big deal, just annoying. I would suggest Universal remotes for each TV. I mean between the main living room and the outside tv, we had 4 remotes. And we never figured out how to change the channel to the tv outside.

The jacuzzi panel is easy to figure out, however - it does NOT heat the pool. It wasn't until the 2nd night that we figured out we had to open one of the air valves on the side of the jacuzzi to allow the heat to come up through the bottom. Again, it's not all controlled on the panel.

We had landscapers just walk in the back yard during our stay, we asked that they come back another day, next week.

The neighbor should park in his own driveway, not the one for the vacation/rental home since a HUGE dumpster was already taking up enough space in the driveway.


All in all the rental was good, we would stay again. Nothing major that would keep up from coming back which is why I still gave the rental 4 stars even though the "con" list seems long.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We have replaced the mattress that was a problem and had our pest control out to treat the home. We let you know about the dumpster in the driveway ahead of your arrival and it has since been removed since the work was completed. I was unaware of the neighbor parking in the driveway. I'm glad you had a nice time and we look forward to having you back again.

FLEA INFESTED!! A TRULY AWFUL DISNEYLAND VACATION EXPERIENCE!!

  • 1 of 5
We arrived at the vacation house late on Tuesday 8/5/14, that night we learned that the house was infested with fleas. I sent an email to the property manager Sharlene regarding the problem, and three days later (on a Saturday) she sent me an email stating that she could not get pest control at the house until Monday. This was unacceptable to me considering that I have three small children (2, 5 and 8), and I did not want them near hazardous chemicals. We were also leaving that Tuesday. The proper thing to do would have been to relocate us. It would have also been nice to receive a phone call and an apology for subjecting my family to fleas and a dirty home. We rented the house because we wanted to be comfortable, but this house was anything but comfortable. My poor son is allergic to fleas bites, and he was attacked on a daily basis despite the bug repellent. Sharlene's idea of compensation was comping us one night for our troubles. Their summer rates are very expensive for what you actually get, plus a hefty cleaning fee.

1) House was infested with fleas
2) Home was not professionally cleaned. Bathrooms and kitchen were dirty.
3) Dirty dishes and utensils
4) Crumbs and fleas in beds (which means that the linens were not changed and we slept on dirty linens).
5) Purchased a $15 hair dryer during our stay because Sharlene stated the rental had one.
6) The house smelled moldy and stale. This house has not been professionally cleaned in quite some time. The smell remained even after opening doors and windows, which leads me to believe that the house has a mold problem.
7) I found 1 large cockroach (dead) in the bathroom near the laundry room (although I did not see anymore during our stay).
8) Dishwasher and clothes washer are in need of cleaning. They stink and the clothes still stink after washing.
9) The home is also in violation of California Building and Health and Safety Codes. There are only 2 fire detectors in the entire home. They are required by law to have smoke detector in each room and main living space.
10) The outside grills and refrigerators are filthy.

The house is filthy, and un-kept. If you do not believe me go back and look at prior 1 star reviews that have been pushed back. We tried to give Sharlene and the owner an opportunity to redeem themselves and make this right, but after a month of going back and forth with them we've decided there is no reasoning with them.

Owner's Response: ***Beware of this review. Our service, cleanliness and response to problems can be found on other reviews of this property. Guests were non-communicative with management of problems during their stay and then the day after their stay were extremely belligerent and demanded a full refund even when additional compensation was offered.****
These guests received an email from Sharlene on Aug 3rd prior to their arrival that she would be on vacation and not available by email and please phone her should there be a problem with the home. Guest ignored that instruction and sent an email with a complaint of fleas in the home. Once the email was received Sharlene tried to get pest control to come out but the guests refused citing chemicals and their children being exposed. No other problems were reported during that time. The day after they checked out pest control was called and a refund of their security deposit was issued along with one night's stay. Later that night we received a lengthy email with the complaints listed in this review and a demand for a full refund even though they stayed the entire 7 days of their vacation.
None of their other complaints have been substantiated and the home was cleaned properly as witnessed by another staff member. The quality of cleaning and management response to issues can stand for itself by looking at other reviews since February of 2013 when Sharlene came on board to help with this home. These guests have a bad history of saying anything to make a quick buck. Please keep that in mind when reading their review of this lovely home.
1)This home has 2 Carbon monoxide detectors and additional smoke detectors in each room.
2) This home does have a hair dryer as stated to the guests.
3) Bathrooms and kitchen were cleaned and linens were changed as witnessed by a staff member who was checking on the cleaning crew prior to this guests arrival.
4) Outside grill area and refrigerator were cleaned as witnessed by the same staff member.
5) The house does not smell and there is NO mold problem.
6) The house is NOT un-kept or dirty.

Family holiday

  • 4 of 5
The house is in a quiet neighbor hood on a cul d sac. It is close to major freeways and the Disneyland complex. It was surface clean, but the refrigerator, dishwasher, and hot tub all need attention in the form of functional maintenance:DW doesn't clean well, refer isn't fully functional, hot tub controls are difficult to use due to wear and the outside tiki bar needs electrical and cleaning help. We had to replace 5 light bulbs and two other failed the morning we left. The issues were a distraction, but might be more of an obstacle to renters who plan to use the property for meals, etc. there plenty of pluses but future renters should have the agent walk-through the property with them before occupying

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are in the process of replacing some of the items that you mentioned. The hot tub's control panel has been replaced. This is an older home and there isn't plumbing over to the refrigerator to supply the ice maker or water dispenser. There is a Brita water pitcher and ice cube trays available for use while in the home. We hope you enjoyed your vacation with your family.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this lovely home over Thanksgiving weekend. The home was just perfect for the 6 of us. The backyard was great for thowing the football around and the spa felt wonderful on the cool nights. Convenient location for the activities around the area such as Knotts Berry Farm and Disneyland. Very nice quite neighborhood and the perfect spot for viewing Disneyland's Fireworks show. We will definately stay in this house again for future LA trips.
