Ultimate SoCal Vacation Homes' Garden Retreat II is our most recently added Anaheim vacation home. It is the largest and may be the best yet, we invite you to be the judge! This 5 bed/3.5 bath home has tons of gathering space and an Ultimate Game Room that features billiards, ping-pong, foosball, darts and a 46” high def LED TV with Dish Network’s Top 250 entertainment package. Your fun continues in the huge backyard as you splash on the baja shelf then dive into the deep end of your own private, heated swimming pool with over-sized hot tub. This home is able to sleep up to 22 total adults and kids.
The Garden Retreat II offers many unique features that provide Ultimate Comfort, Convenience, and Fun. The 'kids' room offers two sets of twin bunk beds which feature stairs allowing safe & easy access for little ones to the top bunks. The newly renovated swimming pool will provide you endless hours of fun while jumping into the deep end, splashing on the 1ft deep baja shelf or relaxing in the oversized hot tub. When the pool is not in use, closing the automatic safety cover will allow the kids to freely explore the gardens in the fenced backyard and efficiently keep the water heated to 85 degrees year round. Large groups will have plenty of hot water for showers with the upgraded tank-less hot water heater.
Before heading to bed, gather in your Ultimate Game Room for some family game time. A billiard table, ping-pong table, foosball table, electronic dart board and many board games equals fun for the whole family. Yes, tournaments are allowed and encouraged. The tournament whiteboard is on the wall so make your brackets and bring it! It's time to see what everybody is made of! By the way, the 46”LED TV with gaming hookups (ask Angela about our XBOX 360 gaming package) in the garage provides yet a third entertainment area, all of which include Dish Network’s Top 250 programming in HD.
The spacious master bedroom is conveniently located downstairs and includes a double vanity with shower, 27”LCD TV and plenty of room for a pack n play or air mattress (provided) if needed. Upstairs you’ll find 4 additional bedrooms and two more bathrooms. For large groups this can mean a “boys” bathroom and a “girls” bathroom (much to the delight of the girls) or for families traveling together it can mean “ours” and “theirs.” The largest guest room upstairs includes a king bed, then we have a queen, a twin over full bunk and the fourth bedroom includes two sets of twin bunk beds. For groups needing more than 9 beds there is a queen sofa-sleeper, a full sofa sleeper, as well as two queen and two twin air mattresses. With two-to-a-bed (except in the twins) we can accommodate up to 22 Loving souls (small and large mixed). If that’s not enough room, inquire about one of our other two Anaheim vacation homes, one of which is immediately next door to this home and sleeps up to 20.
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 give them to serve their guests. They also Love that managing a vacation home business gives Angela the ability to stay home with their four young 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. Currently Michael is writing a blog for the HomeAway Owner Community site.
The Smiths partnered with friends to bring to the Garden Retreat II to Anaheim travelers in 2011.
The Garden Retreat II was the perfect addition to Ultimate SoCal Vacation Homes because in addition to it's spacious layout, upgraded features, and fantastic pool, it is also located directly next door to our Garden Retreat property. So, if you are looking for a location that can accommodate a large group, ask about renting both homes!
