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 property extremely well equipted

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay. Josh and Mindy thought of everything. Very well equipped. Nothing left to chance. Very very easy access to Disneyland. Never needed the car. Can see fireworks from the parking lot. No property has closer access. Owner is very responsive. Would stay again.

Great location and kid friendly!

  • 4 of 5

We loved how close the home is to Disneyland, we walked everyday. It was kid friendly for our 5 girls that are under 9 years old. It was very clean and we even used the nice stroller and pack and play they provided. The owners are very kind and even mailed us back a toiletry kit we left behind and did not charge us. Great for large families or even multiple families with small kids. Thanks for a great week!

.Storybook Villa 1

  • 3 of 5

Having my whole family together in one place was my goal for this vacation. The nine of us fit in this condo very nicely. I felt very comfortable staying at the condo...The condo provided all that we needed. The trip was a memorable one and so was Storybook Villa... I would definitely use again if I ever get back to Disneyland

Great location, nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The location was great! Took us 20 min to walk to the gates of Disneyland. The condo was very clean, and there was plenty of space for the 6 of us. Our one suggestion would be to supply bath soap, shampoo, and conditioner.

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
