Anaheim House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath, sleeps 20 total 10/beds, 6/sofa sleepers, 4/air mattress

Ultimate SoCal Vacation Homes' Garden Retreat is more than 2550 sq. ft. of comfort, relaxation and fun located in a quiet community right in the heart of beautiful Orange County. This home away from home is loaded with amenities and sprawls across an enormous 11,000 sq. ft. lot at the very end of a long elbow shaped cul-de-sac. Garden Retreat's features include billiards, shuffleboard, ping-pong, air hockey, electronic dartboard, theater room with 47' HD TV, two 32' HD TVs, and much more. The spacious backyard is fully fenced and features a heated swimming pool with automatic safety cover, 7 seat/43 jet hot tub, outdoor kitchen with 100,000 BTU grill, multiple outdoor eating areas, two grass areas, beautiful flowers, and it backs up to a multi-purpose athletic field with running track. Whether you are a single family or multi families traveling together the Garden Retreat offers ultimate comfort, ultimate convenience, and ultimate fun!

Some Helpful Suggestions for Your SoCal Trip: We know how to have fun while maximizing your time. Here are a few pointers:

- Do Disneyland on a weekday. This seems like a no-brainer, but there really is a huge difference in the amount of people on a weekend which means longer lines!

- Plan at least one half day hanging out at the house. Swim, play games, watch movies, do whatever, together. You are choosing to stay in a vacation home for comfort, convenience and fun! Some of your best memories will be made just enjoying time together at 'home,' (the games help a lot!)

- Even though check-in usually is around 3pm, get to Anaheim a couple hours early and do your shopping. Go to Target, Costco, the grocery store and wherever else you need to get situated. Or ask about ordering your groceries online and having them delivered. This way, once when you check in you can start having fun right away!

- Plan out what your group wants to do BEFORE you get to the house, even if it's just Monday is Disneyland, Tuesday the beach, Wednesday Hollywood, etc.

What Michael Loves about the Garden Retreat: When I first walked into this house I fell in love with the layout. It's a totally killer 1966 tri-level at the end of a street that nobody has to drive down unless they live on. Totally secluded. Plus, it backs up to the back side of an athletic field for a school. Cannon balls off the diving board are awesome! Lots of birds, there are two doves that nest in the cypress (balled up) trees, and there is a really awesome blue bird that comes by. We bought this home in 2008, spent some time upgrading and remodeling, then set it up with everything necessary to have an awesome vacation. Theater room? Yea. I got to go on a Best Buy rampage for HD TV's and audio equipment, got a great deal on a new air hockey and ping pong table, set up the garage, put in the hot tub and outdoor kitchen.... next thing we knew this house was dialed in! We've put a lot of thought, consideration and care into setting this home up for your maximum enjoyment, we're sure you'll love it!

The Smith family owns and manages three vacation homes in Anahiem, CA while raising their children in a small town outside of Austin, TX. Born and raised in Southern California, they enjoy the opportunity to return for visits with family and friends. With so much to offer, SoCal is their ideal family vacation destination. While staying in the homes they can't help but be looking for ways to improve the quality of their guests' experience.

The Smiths Love the opportunities vacation home ownership gives them to serve their guests. They also Love that managing a vacation home business gives Angela the ability to stay home with their four children.

Angela manages the day to day operation of the homes including coordinating 2 property managers, cleaning crews, handymen, a grounds crew and a pool service technician. High quality guest experiences are a team effort!

The Smiths also enjoy the opportunities they've been given from time to time to collaborate with the HomeAway team headquartered in Austin, TX. They even got to host the Griswold's Family Truckster for a couple days (see listing photo) as part of HomeAway's Truckie's Tour media campaign. Michael currently writes a blog for the HomeAway Owner Community site.

Angela Smith purchased this house in 2008

This is our second vacation home. We chose Anaheim a second time because we Love how centrally located it is and it's proximity to Disneyland.

Our first vacation home, also in Anaheim, was actually our family home for 4 years before moving to Texas. When we moved to Texas we didn't want to part with our home that we had just remodeled and absolutely Loved! So the idea of turning it into a vacation home made sense, and it's been great!

In 2011 we added a third home to our offering and it is located directly next door to the Garden Retreat. So, if you are looking to accommodate a large group, please let us know!

Several of my family members were traveling to Southern California from different locations to celebrate our father's 80th birthdays. We had 5 adults and 4 kids, ages 5 to 10. Our niece had rented a different Vacation home from this same owner a year or so prior. The owner was so helpful and accommodating. I must say the vacation homes that this owner has are Excellent!!! The home was exceptionally clean and very comfortable, had so many items to make our stay convenient. The neighborhood was quiet with so much close by (groceries, shopping, interstates). I highly recommend this vacation home or any home from this owner.

We just finished our wedding week in wonderful Southern California. The houses we rented from "Home Away" we incredible. We needed two houses and they were able to accommodate us with two side by side in a very quiet cul-de-sac. The amenities were AWESOME. In ground pools, Hot Tubs, Game rooms, Modern kitchens and furnishings. These houses were also centrally located to most of Southern California and less than 5 minutes to Disneyland. We will definately stay at these properties again on our future visits and I will give them a 5 start recommendation to anyone.

I don't usually write reviews. I have three kids under 7 years old and in the time it takes to sit down, start the computer and log in, I'm lucky if my house isn't on fire. It takes OUTSTANDING service and amenities to motivate me to take that time. IF YOU ONLY READ ONE REVIEW HERE, MAKE IT THIS ONE!

We stayed in two houses (181249 & 361998) which were right next door to each other (this was so convenient for our large group) . Here are the reasons these houses were perfect for our Big Texan Clan:

* Both houses were spotlessly clean.
- Seriously, I would have let my kids eat off the floors. The mattresses looked brand new and even the comforters looked and smelled fresh and clean.
LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA: The pillows had two clean cases on them and no drool spots (am I the only one with that phobia?).

*The bathrooms and kitchen were fully equipped.

- And by equipped, I mean loaded! Hair dryers, packaged soap, shampoo and conditioner and lots of fluffy white towels in the bathrooms.

- Eatery that ranged from glass plates to sippy cups for the kids, condiments (who wants to buy bottles of ketchup and mustard for a two week stay?), and spices in the kitchen.
LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA: There were waffle makers. Enough said.

*The pool was beautiful.
-And as safe as a pool could be. I am a major hypochondriac. I worried all the way to California about the pools at the houses and my non-swimming kids. I was pleased to find that there were lots of life jackets and floaties and the pool cover was the kind that can hold a person's weight. We were still careful but my fears were unfounded and my oldest son even learned to swim in this pool while we were there.
LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA: The pool is 10 feet deep. With a divingboard.

ICING ON THE CAKE: Our gigantic group had seven kiddos under seven including two babies. These houses had toys, exersausers, pack n' plays, sippy cups, high chairs, travel high chairs, even baby monitors. If you have a little one, you know how much "stuff" you have to pack for trips. Next time my bags will be packed with nothing but chocolate. :)

Beautiful weather, beautiful houses, beautiful time had by all! You will not regret staying in one (or both) of these houses.

The Perfect Family Getaway!!!!!!

We are a family of six four kids ages 11-15. I can not say enough about this house. It was a home away from home. Our kids felt at ease and I and my husband were at peace. The lay out of the house was outstanding. The kids wanted the basement and the space away from the upstairs. THE POOL was so wonderful when we were not out site seeing we could not get the kids out of the pool. You have thought of everything when it came to what a house needs. I still can not believe this was a house we rented for a week, as it felt like our own. The location was perfect, so close to everything! I am so grateful we found this beautiful home for our vacation. We will be telling everyone we know about this home away from home! Thank you so very much The LaBounty/Webb Family

We had a wonderful time. It was perfect!
It was great to stay in a house that could host 3 families with everything we need and so we were able to enjoy the spirit and the places of the neighborhood without wasting time.
It surprised us how well equipped is the house, since linens and towels in the bedrooms till a kitchen stocked with appliances, cookware, dishes and utensils. And so was the laundry and living room, with games and a lot of entertainment and fun.
The city is also great. We visit very nice parks and places. And that gave us wonderful moments with our kids.
It was so complete that we want to come back!
