WOW,WOW,WOW,WOW,WOW (that's 5 stars in "WOW" language!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously, WOW!!!!

We rent 4 or 5 houses a year in our retired travels and this is absolutely the BEST EVER!!! Josh and Mindie have literally thought of everything and then the location is PERFECT too!

Where to start....

LOCATION! Right across the street from Disney entrance, a 5 minute walk to tram (even with little ones and older ones :) Someone else mentioned not using the rental car, that was us. We drove a mile to Food For Less market, at midnight, twice, other than that just to and from the airport. (Might save money on public transportation?) Very quiet as well.

SAFETY: super nice neighborhood, well lighted, absolutely felt comfortable walking to and fro, even near midnight! Very nice neighbors and residents we encountered, although few, even had pools to ourselves!

CONDO: Incredible well thought out starting with baby gates at top and bottom of stairs! What a relief to not to have to worry about that with little ones! Everything one might need in kitchen, furniture very clean and comfy, Disney theme throughout, kids were in awe, comfy beds and upscale linens and bedding. Classy decorating, not cluttered, with Disney guide books to help plan days.

EXTRAS: Josh and Mindie mention having a "stroller", it's a "Sit and Ride" for 2 kids! Definitely the way to go, it's a lot of walking for adults and can be tough on little folk. Take the stroller! We left an umbrella stroller too for future use of renters if just need one seat. They also have baby monitor, pack and plays, toys, extras of all sheet sets, blankets, etc! And with the washer and dryer it's easy to have what you need. Even kid dishes our grandkids loved~ kind of frosting on the cake!

FRESH AIR: Being Oregon country folk we loved being able to open the sliding doors each morning letting in the fresh air (although I doubt it's always so "fresh" there in LA ). The doors are within the extra large totally walled patio where the kids' play structure and patio set are.

POOL and PLAYGROUND: Our grandkids loved the pools and playground! It was nearly private yet in a big complex. The complex itself s also very clean, well lighted and feels safe.

KIDS' WELCOME: Our grandkids were excited to find a special "welcome" awaiting them. Just another special touch at Storybook Villa!

COMMUNICATION: After a bit of confusion, on my part with VRBO, I got reservation with Josh's help, then as he said, we were "in good hands now". Great folks to deal with! Obviously we highly recommend staying here!

Great place to relax at the end of 4 days at the parks. A nice walk over to the parks!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations for our family vacation. Sooooo much better than a hotel. Quiet at night and we slept so well. Nice to be able to do laundry before we pack to go home. Highly recommend staying here. Kids are well thought of too with all the games, coloring books, etc.

Brilliant place to stay while visiting Disney. So relaxing to be able to walk to the parks, then come back to use the pool or just cool down. Best showers of our road trip too!!

What a great place for us to stay for our Disneyland vacation! Not only is this property in the closest complex to the Disneyland parks, it is also located on the closest side of the complex to the park which makes it even better. We had six people stay in Storybook Villa #1 and it fit our needs perfectly. One bedroom for grandparents, one bedroom for parents, and the kids room for our twin grandkids! Also, having two full bathrooms upstairs and the extra 1/2 bathroom on the main floor was very helpful for all of us. We would come back for sure.

Great place for family visit to Disneyland, Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while attending a family wedding at the Disneyland Hotel and enjoying 4 additional days of a Disneyland/Southern California vacation. Our family consisted of four adults and it was great to have the room this condo offered. Three bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms made it very comfortable for everyone and provided us with plenty of space at a much better rate than three separate hotel rooms would have. We were able to walk to the hotel and Downtown Disneyland in about 10-15 minutes. There was plenty of information about Anaheim and the condo was fully equipped for what we needed. I would stay here again if I came back to Disneyland.

Anaheim, CA is home to Disneyland & centrally located. Los Angeles and all of its attractions (Universal Studios, Hollywood, Zoo, Santa Monica beach & pier) is immediately to the north, about a 30-45 minute drive. Freeways are easily accessible (right around the corner). San Diego is immediately to the south. Sea World, Lego Land, the zoo and wild animal park await you there! 1.5 - 2 hours away.

If you want to stay closer to 'home' while your here, you're in luck. Orange County has beaches (Huntington, Newport, Laguna, Balboa Island), amusement parks (Disneyland, California Adventure, Knott's Berry Farm), water parks (Soak City, La Mirada Splash), family entertainment (Downtown Disney, local city markets, Medieval Times dinner & tournament), & family fun (Irvine Park & Zoo, Discovery Museum, & more!).

Its time to visit Southern California & stay at Storybook Villa #1.

Other Activities: Your Vacation Experience: Walk to Disney, Run in the Sand of the Nearby Beaches, Listen to Live Music at Downtown Disney, Cruise down Rodeo Drive
