About Valerie Van de Zilver

Hi Everyone! Thank you for your interest in staying in our Disney area Vacation home. Creating a vacation home has been our obsession for a few years and now is a reality. First off, we are vacation junkies! We have three children and as our family has grown we have really enjoyed traveling with friends and family.

Why Valerie Van de Zilver chose Anaheim

When we decided to create a vacation rental we knew exactly what we wanted. We wanted a home large enough to handle our family and even room for friends and their kids. A place that was relaxing for the adults, that kids would love and where they would be safe. We wanted a clean, well-designed property built with vacations in mind!

What makes this house unique

Our home is brand new to the vacation home market, just finished with a complete remodel where every wall, floor, bath and appliance was replaced. Our house is designed with an open floor plan and professionally decorated from the ground up. Everything has been created with the perfect vacation in mind. We want to make you feel like you are at a 5 star resort!

We know that traveling with kids means that you have to bring a ton of stuff, and we've tried to make your packing a bit easier. Our home is stocked with cribs, strollers, toys and many more items usually difficult to pack for a trip. A complete list of items is included in the amenity section.

So check out our pictures, let everyone choose their rooms and give Valerie a call to reserve the dates for your stay!

We hope to see you soon, where 'Putting On the Ritz' is more than just a cliché.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was beautiful, very neat and clean with everything we needed on hand. Location was super convenient. Would stay at one of Valerie's properties again.

This stunning ranch home was a perfect fit for our large family with plenty of rooms and space to stretch out. We loved the privacy the bedrooms offer, the number of bathrooms divided nicely between the "wings", and all of the common areas like the dining, living, and pool areas.

We've stayed many times in other properties, but this was the first time we were faced with a manual of local ordinances. To be in compliance, don't have "vacation brain" like we did, but rather head straight for the manual unless you are formally welcomed at your arrival. A few examples are to carefully maintain the trash cans (they are not labeled) and be aware that the backyard is OFF LIMITS after 10pm PST.

The location is perfect for visits to Disneyland and Angels Stadium; great spot for flying in and out of John Wayne (SNA) located close to the 5.It's a bit of stretch to Hollywood and LAX due to the Los Angeles traffic jams.

Our suggestions for the property manager would be to replace old showerheads, as they did a poor job in a couple of the showers, and replace the toaster, as it burns anything that is placed in it very easily, no matter the settings.

Overall, minus the simple imperfections, our family will never forget our time well spent here. The heated pool and genuine family time was a perfect fit.

Reviewer Comments:

8 adults, 1 infant, 5 children (ages 5 to 11)were comfortably accommodated for 4 nights at this tastefully furnished quality home in a very quiet neighborhood. The heated pool was a huge success! Location provided quick/easy vehicular access to Disneyland(as one group member was unable to comfortably walk both TO the park and AROUND the park). Meals were a combination of home (prepared on site or takeout from local restaurants)or at Disneyland. At the end of our stay-no complaints, concerns, or expressions of regrets about property's location, size, furnishings, or amenities-were offered. All agreed-we'd stay again.

Fabulous Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We searched for a long time to find the perfect vacation home. When we saw this one, we knew it would be the best. It was every thing we wanted and more! It was clean, well furnished, had everything we needed, and Valerie was a gracious host. The layout is perfect for our large family, with two Master Bedrooms and large bedrooms for everyone. Having the Living and Dining rooms in the middle made it an ideal arrangement. Both adults and kids loved the pool and the spa was a great place to relax after walking all day. We could even see the Disneyland fireworks at night. We celebrated birthdays and anniversaries, it was so much fun to be together for these special occasions. At the end of our time, it was hard to leave. This is our new favorite vacation home near Disneyland! We'll be back next year!

Reviewer Comments:

Pros: -Great layout for two families of four. Each family had plenty of space in their own wing. However, It may be a little crowded for the capacity of 18 people staying here. -Furniture and decor was up-to-date, quite nice and fairly clean. -Location was convenient for Disneyland; and it was only a half hour drive to Huntington Beach. Cons: -At $650 plus tax and fees a night, it was overpriced, especially for us Canadians who are struggling with poor exchange fees. -Pool area was quite disappointing. It looked considerably different than the pictures. All the chair cushions were very dirty and MOLDY. None of us sat on them the whole five days we were there. After complaining to the manager about the shape they were in, a few cushions were replaced shortly before we left. We also had to complain about debris floating in the pool and spa upon arrival, before we wanted our kids to swim in it. She did send someone to clean it the day after we checked in. There were also a lot of old, dirty, wrecked pool toys that were piled up along the side of the house facing the spa. It looked unsanitary and very junky. -The bathroom across from the Cars themed bedroom smelled like urine. It appeared clean enough, so must've been coming from the tile grout or something. We had to keep the fan on most the time because of it. -Master bathroom in the other wing had a little, tiny ant problem. -Washing machine didn't work very well. We had to struggle with it and try various things before we could get the two loads done that we needed to. -Carpets were not very clean throughout the house. -Kitchen faucet had a leak from the sprayer.
