This special family home has a long standing history of excellent reviews from happy families, ensure yourself peace of mind in your vacation home choice.

I grew up seeing my Dad work as a real estate broker at his own real estate company. I managed rental properties for 10 years before I got into the vacation rental aspect. It has been 20 years and I am still enjoying it.

It is important to me that my guests have a great experience and want to come back again if they return to the area! I am also an annual Disneyland Passholder & Disney enthusiast, a great reference for navigating the Disney parks. Feel free to reach me anytime on the # listed and I will be happy to assist you anytime, before and during your stay. Happy Vacationing!

We really enjoyed it!

The house was clean and the backyard was beautiful. The beds were very comfortable which I liked. Everyone slept well. My husband and my 4 year old had a fun time exploring the back yard. Carol was good to be in touch and answer my questions if I had them. We will stay here again if we ever go back that way. Thanks Carol :)

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The house was in perfect condition, but the yard is the real treasure. It truly was a tropical paradise. I wish we had planned more down time to just relax and enjoy the yard and hot tub. It is in a good location as well. Close to the freeway so it was easy to get where we wanted to be. I hope we get a chance to come and stay here again.

Our family of four adults agrees that this home was the perfect place for our recent vacation. For us and the areas we planned to visit, it was centrally located - easy drives to Disneyland, Riverside, Temecula wineries, Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach. Carol was wonderful to work with and has thought of everything in furnishing her home. If we had any questions, she was very quick to respond. The home is beautiful, exceptionally clean, has wonderfully comfortable beds, and is exactly as pictured on VRBO. The back yard is beautiful and peaceful - a terrific place to relax. We highly recommend this vacation home and would love to return some day.

This was an awesome home, and Carol the owner was just as AWSOME we had a problem with the kitchen sink and she had a plumber out there within the hour. The neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful. We will most definitely be back to stay very soon.
